'Improved stickers bring offense to life
By PETE STEINERT
Last year, goals for the field
hockey team were about as
common as empty seats at home
So far this season, the
Wolverines are finding the net
much more often. Their
impressive 5-1 start is a direct
effect of the increase in offensive
THE WOLVERINES are
averaging just over two goals per
game, and they have scored in
every contest including a season-
high tdtal of five last Saturday
against Notre Dame.
These are startling figures
considering this is basically the
same team that managed a mere
three goals all last year.
"I think it's just better
execution," said senior back
"WE'VE BEEN able to build an
attack(in the past)," said head
coach Karen Collins, "but then
we'd lose it once we got within
"Now we can maintain that
scoring drive right down to the
goal cage. We like to play a give
and go game and work the ball in
Two players who have figured
prominently in the offense are
senior midfielders Jane Nixon
and co-captain Joan Taylor. The
two missed a considerable
amount of action last season due
to injuries. Nixon missed all but
three games and Taylor was out
for six games with a broken
THE TWO are back now and
playing in top form. Nixon
scored three goals in the last two
games, and Taylor played a key
role in setting up scoring
Nixon, Taylor, and the rest of
last year's squad returned this
season determined to rebound
from last year's miserable 1-14-2
"They came back with an
attitude that they were going to be
better," explained Collins, "and
they worked very hard over the
winter and the summer to
improve their individual skills.
"WHEN YOU have the same
team returning, that gives them
extra incentive to show people that
they weren't the weak team that
everybody thought they were."
"I think winning the first
game gave us a lot of confidence;"
said Mondul, "whereas if we had
lost or tied, I don't think we would
have went into the rest of the
games with the confidence we
Another key element in
Michigan's turnaround is the
contribution of the freshmen.
"They have been able to come in
and make a difference right
away," said Collins.
FRESHMAN forward Judy
Burinskas is tied for the team
lead in goals with three.
Burinskas along with freshman
midfielder Sharon Cantor hail
from Chesire High School in
Connecticut where they were All-
"We come from a really good
program, and they prepared us
well for the college level, so it
wasn't a big change," said
Cantor. "II feel like I've been
playing with the team all winter.
I've fit right in."
Whether the Wolverines can
carry their recent success into the
Big Ten season remains to be
seen. A good indication will
come this weekend when
Michigan travels east to face
Rhode Island and nationally-
ranked Boston College . and
One thing is certain, however.
If the Wolverines continue to
score goals, they are taking a step
in the right direction.
