CHICAGO - The momentum is
gone. The confidence is gone. The
home ice is gone.
A two-game sweep at the hands of
Illinois-Chicago at the UIC Pavilion
took away many of the good things
accomplished by the Michigan hockey
team in the last month. The Flames
won the Friday night game, 4-2, and
the Saturday night rematch, 7-4, in a
game not nearly as close as the score.
"WE'VE GOT to completely
regroup," said Michigan coach Red
Berenson after the series. "I thought
we had some momentum coming into
this weekend, and we definitely lost it.
We've got to regroup this week and
start all over again."
They have to start regrouping from
nearly the bottom, however. Michigan
(10-16 in conference, 12-18 overall)
now has sole possession of eighth
place in the nine-team Central
Collegiate Hockey Association.
w Mathematically, the Wolverines are
still alive for home ice in the playoffs,
but they must win all their remaining
games, and hope Lake Superior does
not win any of the four games it has
Illinois-Chicago (12-16, 13-18-1) has
won most of its games in the past
month. The Flames emerged from a
three-way tie for sixth to take hold of
that place by themselves.
THE FLAMES were pleased with
themselves after the games, and with
good reason. Their forechecking and
aggressive play kept Michigan off
guard all weekend.
"There was a lot of holding out
there," said Michigan captain Frank
Downing. "I give them credit. They
took us off our game."
The Illinois-Chicago offense was on
top of its game Saturday, especially in
four-on-four situations. The Flames
top line scored three times while both
teams had a man in the penalty box.

"We don't mind going four-on-four
or three-on-three,"said Rucinski (14-
26-40). "That leaves more ice for us,
and we've got some good speed."
"With the skaters we have," said
Illinois-Chicago coach Val Belmonte.
"and the guys that can handle the
puck, I'll go four-on-four or three-on-

poor execution. "We weren't stopping
and starting well on the four-on-four,"
said Downing, who scored a goal each
night. "We were circling and getting
away from our check.

usually hold our own on the four-on-

Rossi and Illinois-Chicago's Rob
Klent began a brawl that resulted in
their disqualifications. Michigan's

Tankers take Wildcats, 82-55

Swimming in their final meet at Matt Mann Pool,
the four senior swimmers bade farewell in style as
Michigan outswam Northwestern 82-55.
In one of her finest meets of the season, Lisa Lun-
dsford recorded two wins, a second place and a
third place finish.
"LISA Lundsford swam her best 200 fly of the
year," said Michigan coach Jim Richardson. "She
is beginning to look like the way I feel she can
Lundsford had a time of 2:09.57 in that event and
finished third. Lundsford won the 100-yard butterfly
in 1:00.66 and teamed with senior Cecilia Sheehan,
Christi Vedejs, and Becky Fenson to take the 200
yard medley relay with a time of 1:53.
Aside from that relay victory, Sheehan had a
second place in the 100 yard backstroke. The third
Michigan senior, Karen Kuhlman, took first place in
the 400-yard individual medley relay with a time of
"I SWAM a controlled race, good splits," said
Kuhlman of her victory. "But the Big Tens is where
I should really have a good meet."
The final Michigan senior, diver Martha
Dresbach, won her event, the one-meter diving
board. Fellow diver Carolyn Kennedy also shined on
the boards as she took the three-meter event.
Other Wolverines who came out on top for the
meet include Stacie Fruth in the 100-yard freestyle,
and Susie Rabia, who won both the 200-yard
freestyle and the 100-yard freestyle.
FOR THE first time this season, Michigan faced a
team that was smaller in size than it's own 11-
"We talked before the meet," said Richardson of
a conversation with Wildcat head coach Pat Berry.
"And we would probably be a great team at Big
Tens if we could combine our forces."
Despite their lack of swimmers, Richardson feels
the Wildcats have a great deal of depth and ex-
"This was the kind of meet where Northwestern
could have turned things around. They've got some
excellent individuals," Richardson noted.
Heading towards it's final weeks of conference
competition, Michigan has now posted a 9-6-1 record

In an overwhelming performan-
ce, Michigan's Sue Schroeder
obliterated all opposition in the
3000-meter run Saturday, easily
qualifying for nationals and upset-
ting the Michigan school record.
The win came amongst a pool of
others for the runners, who took
eight of sixteen events in the
Wolverine Open, held at the Track
and Tennis Building.
To make the NCAA meet in
Syracuse in early March she
needed to run 9:25. Schroeder
finished 9:13:61, easily the out-
standing effort of the meet in
which team scores were not kept.
"I KNEW I was going to qualify
in the meet, but only by three or
four seconds," said Schroeder. "I
went out kind of conservatively
and was so surprised. I told my
coach she had to be kidding when
she told me my time."
"The 3000 I think is my best
event. I'd like to think I'm going to
get faster. The type of workouts I
have been doing are not the type
that would make me peak. I
haven't done any speed work at
Assistant coach Sue Parks
echoed Schroeder's surprise ex-
plaining that the distancers
haven't worked on peaking.
"I THOUGHT she would qualify,
but I didn't think she would run
9:13:61," said Parks, "Her
training hasn't been that hard
Nevertheless, the distancers
more than -pulled their weight for
the club, seizing first place vic-
tories in the 5000-meter and 1000-
meter yard runs with times of
17:17.29 and 2:33.61.
All-American Cathy Schmidt ran
only half a second over the NCAA
qualifying time in the 1000-yard
event, while Cheri Sly completed
the 5000 virtually unchallenged.
"I FELT draggy," said Sly. "In
the beginning I felt fairly good, but
we started out too slow. I would
have run a lot faster if I had had
someone ahead of me. It wasn't
Continuing to roll for the
Wolverines, senior Joyce Wilson
strided to three first place vic-
tories. Wilson took the 440-yard
dash in 56.54 closely followed by
teammate Dedra Bradley who
finished second. The 500-meter
dash was a similar story, with-
Wilson clocking in at 1:14.16, first"
place, with Bradley at her heels in
These two joined forces in the
swift 1600-meter relay, joined by
sophomore Bridget Gleason and
freshman Michelle Gallier. The
largely veteran relay finished with
a time of 3:58.67. The younger 4800-
yard relay also came up trium-
phant finish, 9:39.44.
Michigan proved itself across
the board by placing high in all the
