it has been a long time since the
hockey team has won a game
against Lake Superior. No, make
that a very long time.
Michigan has lost its last 10
meetings with the Lakers going
into this weekend's series between
the two teams at Yost Ice Arena.
Wolverine head coach Red Berenson
has never beaten Lake Superior
since he took over the helm three
"They've had a way of beating
Michigan regardless of whether they
outplayed us or not," Berenson said.
"It's been a matter of simply
just winning the games," explained
Laker head coach Frank Anzalone.
"We may have gotten a break late
in the game, but it wasn't due to
the fact that Michigan didn't play
hard. We've never totally

his success against the Wolverines
as well as the rest of the CCHA (8-
3-1, third place) is nothing fancy.

around the league as being solid

year coach said. "We don't have a

"They've been able to keep the
score down so they haven't had to
score a lot of goals to win games,"
Berenson said. "If you can do that
in college hockey, you don't have
to score eight goals to win. I think
that's been their secret."

The Lakers are only allowing an
average of 3.8 goals per game.
Goaltenders Mike Greenlay (2.72
goals against average) and Randy
Exelby (4.33) deserve much of the
credit for keeping the puck out of
Greenlay, only a freshman, leads
the CCHA with a an eye-opening

good," Anzalone said. "I'm very
happy with the way he's played."
THE TWO goalies receive a
lot of help in front of them as well.
Senior defenseman Matt Cote
anchors the blue line, and
backchecking is a household name
"When we get our chances," said
Michigan's Brad Jones, "we're
going to have to capitalize, because
with a team like Lake Superior the

Although defense is their fort6,
the Lakers are not without offense.
Sophomore left wing Mike de Carle
leads the team in scoring (14 goals,
9 assists, 23 points) and is tied for
ninth in the league. He plays
alongside center Anthony Palumbo
(6-8-14) and right wing Mark
Vermette (7-9-16) to form the
team's most potent offensive line.
Freshman left wing Jeff Jablonski
(10-7-17) has also made a major
The return of senior center Jim
Roque (5-11-16), who missed last
weekend's series against Illinois-
Chicago, also strengthens the team.
Despite Lake Superior's
impressive start and their winning
streak against the Wolverines,
Anzalone remains leery about this
weekend's matchup. "They scare
me. I don't like when I have that
"We must contain their
individual talent that's on the ice
and play our system the way we
like to play it."
On the other side, Berenson
stated what it will take to earn his
first win over the Lakers. "We're a
team that has to play at both ends
of the rink. We don't look at
ourselves as a great offensive team,
and we're not a great defensive
team. We have to make our chances

Swimming in style
Synchro club dances in water
BY JILL MARCHIANO
Imagine being under water for 45 seconds,
trying to do a routine by hearing the distorted
music through the water. Yet you must continue
'to be graceful and still exhibit the strength to
-=continue for another five minutes. Welcome to
Michigan's synchronized swim club practice.
The sport of synchronized swimming is a new
yet fastly growing sport across the nation.
Usually, girls at ages 13 and 14 begin to train for
this sport. From the spectators' top-of-the-water
view 'it looks easy, but as the women will tell
you, that is what they want the audience to
SOME GIRLS realize in high school that
they won't be "top-rated" swimmers. That is when
"they should seriously consider this sport,"
according to Jill Ingersoll, the coach of Michigan's
synchronized swim team.
Practice for the team starts in October, with the
women listening to tapes and records to decide on
the music for their routine. They then practice at
least seven hours a week in the water, learning
new moves; strengthening and conditioning their
bodies to withstand the routine, and slowly trying
to fit the moves to the music they have selected to
rr vi x fr xa.xa,
The six women that compose the team work as
solos, duets, trios, or teams (4-8 people) Of
course, a solo is easier to synchronize but harder to
make dynamic. On the other hand, a team is
difficult to synchronize, but the moves that can be
done are limitless.
DURING THEIR five minute routine, they
are not allowed to touch the bottom of the pool,
yet have to always use 100 percent of their leg
energy to keep them moving. The women here at
Michigan don't emphasize heavy weight training
as some schools in the West do. Instead they
concentrate on grace in the water, creativity, and of
course, audience enthusiasm.
Even though synchronized swimming at
Michigan was dropped as a varsity sport several
years ago, it is greatly recognized in other Big Ten
schools, such as Ohio State. Ingersoll strongly
agrees that "it would be nice for it to be a varsity
sport here. The girls put so much time and effort
into the sport that they should be recognized for
The team does get some University financial
support, but like most club sports, it finds that
fund-raising is necessary in order to cover its costs.
