INDIANA. OSU BEST WOLVERINES

Page 7

Spikers drop pair

By DEBBIE deFRANCES
This year's volleyball team thinks
Big Ten is short for Big Tension.
After finishing with a disappointing
1-12 conference record last season, the
Wolverines were eager to prove
they're in the race for a title. But, on-
ce again, the Big Ten got the best of
the Wolverines as they were ousted by
both Indiana and Ohio State this
weekend.
THE HOOSIERS started
Michigan's Big Ten headaches with a
10-15, 12-15, 15-13, 4-15 defeat Friday
night. Although the scores indicated a
close match, they didn't reflect the
poor Wolverine playing, according to
coach Barb Canning.
"We were pretty nervous for our
first Big Ten match, but that's no ex-
cuse," said Canning. "We played very

indecisively and we didn't put
anything together as a team."
Despite Michigan's shaky team-
work, a few individuals were shining
on offensive statistics. Andrea
Williams, Lisa Vahi and freshman
Marie-Ann Davidson recorded 11 kills
apiece. Williams had a hitting percen-
tage of over .200. Canning was quick
to point out "even Indiana didn't have
people hitting like that."
FOLLOWING their Bloomington
loss, the Wolverines headed east to
take on the Buckeyes in Columbus.
Again, Michigan's fears overtook
their fighting spirit as they added
another drop in the deficit bucket,
losing to Ohio State 10-15, 4-15, 7-15.
The Wolverines, who are now 8-5
overall, 0-2 in the Big Ten, played
much more consistently than the
previous night, but missed some key
scoring opportunities early in the
game, according to Canning.
"If we don't get off to a good start,
then it's hard for us to get going and
back in the match," said Canning. "I
think now we have a little more ex-
perience and we'll be a bit more ready
for the rest of the season."
CANNING SAID the Wolverines
made a vast overall improvement in
the OSU game, although the scores
didn't show it. "Our offenses were
pretty even, but we made 15 service
errors. That's what hurt us," she said.
So, the Wolverines have had their
first look at this year's Big Ten com-
petition. Despite the back-to-back
losses, Canning feels her team is still
"just as good as any other team in the
Big Ten." It will just have to work a

little harder.
And work harder is just what Can-
ning intends to do.
"THE TEAM'S in better shape now
and they know what they have to do,"
said Canning. "We're just going to
push them a lot harder, re-
emphasizing the essentials, and
working on defense."
Aside from working on the basics,
the Wolverines are still trying to ad-
just their court position and to utilize
key players effectively. Michigan
uses a three-setter offense and goes to
the bench regularly.
Canning said once they develop a
more stable, experienced starting six,
they will be able to forget their Big
Ten-sion, their big troubles and their
big fears to be prime contenders in the
Big Ten battle.

SPOR TS OF THE DAIL Y:

Woody Hayes hospitalize

From staff and wire reports
COLUMBUS - Former Ohio
State University football Coach
Woody Hayes will be hospitalized for
about one week after suffering what
his physician called a mild heart
attack, University Hospitals officials
said yesterday.
Hayes, 72, remained in satisfactory
condition yesterday afternoon in the
hospital's coronary care unit. Dr.
Robert Murphy, Ohio State's head
team physician, said he expected
Hayes to remain in the coronary care
unit for at least two days before being
moved to a regular ward.
"I'm going to try to get in touch with
him, said Michigan head football
coach Bo Schembechler. "I feel real
bad about (Hayes' condition). It's just
one thing after another."

Thinclads capture first
The women's cross country team
took their first step towards the
national championships Saturday,
and showed the potential to be a force
in the Big Ten.
They did this when they captured
first in the Western Ontario In-
vitational, beating Penn State by one
point. Sue Schroeder continued to run
well, as she took first and set a new
meet record of 14:34 on the 4.35
kilometer course. Melissa Thompson
finished 8th, Kelly Bert 11th, and Bon-
nie Thompson 12th to round out the top
four Wolverine finishers.
According to Coach Sue Parks, the
meet was "pretty good, especially
Western Ontario and Penn State. Last
year Penn State qualified for

nationals." Parks also noted her
team's times were much faster than
at last year's meet, a point that makes
her very optimistic for the new year.

GRIDDE PICKS

The Daily scooped all the Detroit
papers on the latest Michigan basket-
ball recruit. Jack Kramer, a 6-2, 185-
pound guard, verbally agreed to
P Michigan coach Bill Frieder on Sun-
day.
Kramer was in Ann Arbor over the
weekend, and he was spotted in the
Student Publications Building drop-
ping off his Gridde picks. When staff
members asked him why he was.
coming in after the Friday midnight
deadline, he said he was busy talking
with coach Frieder and touring the
campus.
The Quincy, Ill., native almost
changed his mind on Michigan when
he was declared ineligible for the
choice of a full-tray Sicilian pizza or
Chicago stuffed pizza or whole sub-
marine from Pizza Express, located
at Dooley's and a Dooley's guest pass,
good for two. But he vowed to return
next week, and added, "I bet I'll beat
Glen Rice."
