face Big Ten rivals
By AL HEDBLAD
Perennial field hockey
storms into Ann Arbor Sunday to
take on Michigan in a 10 a.m.
game at Tartan Turf. For the
first time in several years, it
appears that the Wolverines can
compete with the Wildcats.
"Northwestern is beatable,"
said assistant coach Andrea
Wickerham. "They are similar
to Iowa in that they have the
potential to play a high-scoring
game. But they don't always play
to their capabilities."
IN OTHER words, according
to Wickerham, Northwestern
plays "only enough to win. If we
can stay in the game early, we
can beat them."
But the Wolverines cannot
concern themselves with the
Wildcats just yet, because
Michigan has to face Ohio State
tonight. Michigan has played the
Buckeyes twice, beating them 2-0
prior to last week's 2-2 tie.
Beating Ohio State would be
important in that it would give
needed momentum going into
Sunday's game against
A win Sunday would also be the
high point so far of a remarkable
turnaround for the Wolverines.
REBOUNDING from an
abysmal 1985 season in which
Michigan won once in seventeen
tries, the Wolverines are 6-4-1.
While recruiting has
strengthened this year's team,
Wickerham gives most of the
credit for the Wolverines'
turnaround to extensive off-
season conditioning. "Returning
players took the initiative to work
out with weights, run, and
practice their stickwork on their
own," said Wickerham. In
addition, most returning players
trained for four weeks in the U.S.
Olympic Developmental System,
which Wickerham calls a "feeder
system" for the U.S. Olympic
The result 'is a Wolverine
field hockey team that can
compete with its Big Ten
Northwestern and Ohio State.

Reynolds said she expects a "good
game" from Michigan. The

The cross-country teams are
set to compete in today's Ohio
State Invitational in Columbus,
Ohio. Although both squads are
battling injury problems, each is
confident that it can finish high
in the Invite.
The men enter the meet
coming off a second-place finish
at the Michigan Inter-Collegiate
Championships, held two weeks
ago in Ypsilanti. Without the
services of freshmen Tim
Fraleigh and Doug
McKibbon(whom coach Ron
Warhurst elected to sit out) and
the injured Marty Newingham,
the result was nevertheless
successful. Host Eastern
Michigan won the meet.
THE WOMEN head to
Columbus fresh off the heels of
their second-place place finish
at last week's Western Ontario
Invitational. Penn State, a
national cross-country power the
past few seasons, took first
place. However, the Wolverines
ran without seniors Kelli Bert
and Melissa Thompson, who
were sidelined by injury and
The OSU Invitational will
provide both teams an
opportunity to size up some of its
Big Ten competition. Along
with the host Buckeyes, Purdue
and Northwestern will run.
"Northwestern finished second
in the conference last year, and
this will allow us to see how we
match up," said women's coach
Warhurst isn't quite so sure
what will greet him in
Columbus. "The teams change
around so much from year to
year, it's really hard to tell what
to expect," he said. In addition,
Ohio State is the site of the Big
Ten Championships this
season. Parks said the
Wolverines welcome "the
chance to try out the course."
WARHURST expects a
typically strong performance
from senior All-American
Chris Brewster. Joe Schmidt,
John Scherer, and freshman
Brad Barquist are also counted
on to score. The situation is
similar to the one two weeks ago-
in Ypsilanti. Fraleigh and
McKibbon are not running, and
Newingham is still hampered
The situation is the same for
the women. With Bert out and
Thompson's status in question,.
freshman Mindy Rowand will
be counted on to post scoring
Therefore, today's meet gives
both teams another chance to:
compete without all of their top

Astros over Giants
SAN FRANCISCO (AP)- Bill
Doran led off the 10th inning with
a solo homer to give Houston a 2-1
victory yesterday over the San
Fransisco Giants in a game that
saw the Astros' Mike Scott make a
bid for his second straight no-
Will Clark ended Scott's no-hit
bid with a lead-off double in the
seventh inning and scored on
Candy Maldonado's double,
giving the Giants a 1-0 lead.
SCOTT HAD a perfect game
for five and one third innings on
the heels of his no-hit victory over
the Giants Sept. 25 at Houston that
clinched the NL West division for
Scott finished with eight
strikeouts and a season total of
306, making him only the fourth
National League pitcher to
surpass 300 strikeouts.

Those Cherry Bowl organizers
are. What a crazy bunch.
First they try to start a new
bowl game, and instead of putting
it in the land of sand and sun,
they put it in the land of snow and
Then, instead of inviting good
teams, they invited a very
mediocre local team to the initial
Cherry Bowl of two years ago -
"They've got fan appeal," said
the organizers before the game.
When enough people didn't
show up for that game, organizers
decided the next year to invite two
teams from out of state.
"The improved teams will
increase attendance," said
Wrong again. The Cherry
Bowl is going broke.
The funny thing about the
former Griddes organizers is that
they insisted on making all the
same mistakes the Cherry Bowl
organizers did - local teams
abound, and they just loved
including mediocre (or worse)
teams, i.e. the Sam Houston State-
Texas Southern matchup listed
Guess what? Because of
mismanagement, Griddes is
going broke too. Corporate
