Despite the frustration Collins
remains optimistic, and the team is
looking forward to Sunday's opener of
the Big Ten season against Michigan
"If we keep rolling and we keep
gaining, we should be ready for the
Big Ten," Collins said.
Today's game at Toledo should give
some indication of whether the
Wolverines can gain in any category
other than shots.

The Michigan volleyball team stop-

in a dramatic comeback effort again-
st Northwood Institute.
Down two games to one, the
Wolverines began to show their teeth.
Led by Andrea Williams and team
captain Lisa Vahi, Michigan captured
the last two games 15-9, 15-12. The fir-
st three games went 6-15, 15-8 and 14-

Looking at the five games so far,
one could say that the Michigan field
hockey team should be 4-1.
Instead, the Wolverines are looking
for their first season win against
Toledo in Toledo, Oh. today.
AND AS it crosses the nearby state
line, Michigan can hang most of its
troubles on a line of its own - the
The inexperienced frontline in-
cludes two freshmen, Sarah Clark and
Diane Pentaleri. Both are very good,
but at the same time they are very
inexperienced. "Patience is the key,"
said Michigan coach Karen Collins.
Another reason for the Wolveirines'
04-1 record is their inability to score.
The Wolverines are taking plenty of
good shots, actually out-shooting their
opponents in four of five games, but
have scored just once. They apply
constantpressure on the other team's
goalie, but according to Collins, they
don't have the composure yet.
"THEY GET tentative in front of
the goal," she said.
To make matters worse, starter Jane
Michigan coach Barb Canning
credited Northwood for the heated
battle. "We got off to a slow start.
They have heighth and strength at the
net and their domination at the net
forced us into a lot of hitting errors."
The Wolverines had three times as
many errors as Northwood.
The spikers next match is their Big
Ten Opener Friday against Indiana.
NEW YORK (AP) - Phil Niekro
failed in his third bid to win his 300th
game last night, as John Grubb
homered and drove in five runs and
Lance Parrish added a two-run shot to
power the Detroit Tigers to a 9-1 vic-
tory over the New York Yankees.
Niekro, trying to become the 18th
pitcher in major-league history to win
300 games, did not survive the fifth in-
ning. He left after Parrish's home run
gave the Tigers an 8-0 lead with no
outs in the fifth.
The loss also further dented New
York's chances of over-taking Toron-
to in theAmerican League East. The
first-place Blue Jays beat Boston 6-2
and extended their lead to seven
games while lowering their magic
number to just six.
Winner Frank Tanana, 10-14, pit-
ched a five-hitter for seven innings for
the victory. Randy O'Neal gave up the
Yankees' only run in the eighth on
Don Mattingly's 30th homer.
Toronto 6, Boston 2
TORONTO (AP) - Dennis Lamp
pitched 4 2/3 innings of shutout reief to
improve his record to 11-0, and the
Toronto Blue Jays scored two runs on
wild throws to the plate to beat the
Boston Red Sox 6-2 last night.
The victory, combined with New
York's 9-1 loss to Detroit, gave the
Blue Jays a seven-game lead over the
Yankees and lowered the Toronto's
magic number to six.
Lamp, who relieved rookie left-
hander Steve Davis with one out and
the bases loaded in the fourth, got
Jackie Gutierrez to ground into a
double play to end the threat and keep
the game tied 2-2. Lamp, who gave up
three hits, gave way to Bill Caudill in
Nixon was iniured inthe game against
Davis and Elkins on Saturday. The
junior midfielder will miss the entire
season, after being operated on
Nixon's injury was diagnosed as a
partial tear of the cruciate ligament
in her right knee. She will wear a cast
for six weeks.
TO READJUST to this develop-
ment, on Monday Collins inserted
sophomore Andrea Kuebbeler in on
defense, and moved Katrina Warner,
normally a back, to midfield.
Said Collins "'Katrina did a real
nice job, she filled the slot well."
But Michigan still could not fill the
cage. The realigned Wolverines again
dominated their opponents, out-
shooting them, 33-9, but could gain
only a scoreless tie with
Eastern Michigan. This was also a
game in which they had 14 penalty
corners, as compared with the
