Women harriers win first meet
GRIDE PC KSP
In a story that shocked millions
"Of people worldwide, the Griddes
staff claimed Monday that newly
crowned Miss America Kaye Lani
Rae Rafko (the most names of
anyone in Monroe, Mich., history)
was at one time statistician of its
weekly game. Today, it was leaked
by the Daily to the press that Miss
Rafko had worn her dress and
performed her Hawaiian dance for
money, a violation of Miss America
The first, last, and only witness
called by the weekly contest was
Gary Collins, the pageant's emcee
and longtime Griddes fan.
"The pageant was not the first
time that I had seen Kaye, uh I mean
Miss Rafko," explained Collins.

"We had met at a Griddes banquet in
the summer of 1984, I believe it
was. Yeah, we had a good time. You
know, a couple of drinks. Well,
that's not important."
"I don't remember much about
that evening," Collins said off the
record. "But there is one thing I do
remember. She (Kaye, uh Miss
Rafko) was wearing an off-white,
lace, hand-beaded gown with a
sweetheart neckline and a wide
silktaffetta flounce. Someone bet her
five dollars that she couldn't dance in
that outfit. Before anyone knew what
was transpiring, she was Hawaiian
dancing to 'Good Vibrations'."
While this might not be the most
earth-shattering news to hit the
Griddes column in the past few
weeks, it was a better story than last
week's Griddes winner being sued by
the second place finisher for eating
MSG induced Chicken McNuggets.

story, bring in your Griddes picks to

If the Kentucky Invitational was
any indication of how the rest of the
women's cross country season will
go, Michigan should be a promising
contender for the Big Ten
championship title in November.
The Wolverine runners came out on
top of the 17-team field at the
invitational in Lexington, Kentucky
last weekend with a score of 74
Captain Traci Babcock led the
team with a sixth-place finish in the
5000 meter race of 130 runners. She
covered the course in 18 minutes and
Close behind in eighth and ninth
place were senior Cheri Sly and
sophomore Mindy Rowand. Junior
Debbie Palmer also ran a strong
race, placing 33rd.
THE TEAM shows a lot of
potential. As a squad, the top six
finishers crossed the finish line
within one minute and four seconds
of each other at the season opening
"I couldn't have asked for much
more," said first-year coach Sue
Foster. "I was particularly impressed
with Cheri Sly's performance.
Because of injuries, she has not been
able to do much training, but she ran
a very gutsy race."
Incidentally, Foster is a 1983
Michigan graduate and holds five Big
Ten track championship tiles as well
as being a two-time All-American.
WAKE FOREST was the
runner-up in Lexington with 84
points, followed by Big Ten teams
Ohio State with 104 points, and
Indiana with 126 points.
Kristi Orre, running unattached
(without a team), won the event in
17 minutes and 36 seconds.
This weekend the women will
travel to London, Ontario for the

Wolverines finished second, behind

teams. With five of the top seven

Stickers face Ohio foes
The women's field hockey team
roars into Ohio for today's game
against Kent State with momentum
equal to that of a Jumbo Elliot
freefall. While victories have been
novelties in past years, the Michigan
team currently finds themselves
proud, yet modest orchestrators of a
perfect 7-0 record.
Six of the team's seven victories
have been shutouts, including a 1-0
silencing of Springfield (Mass.)
College on Sunday. "The whole
team working as a unit is what
creates the shutouts," said freshman
Tricia Maran. The team has allowed
just one goal all season.
The team's top scorer, Trish
Mondul, scored her fourth goal of
the season in Sunday's victory.
Recovering a loose ball in the circle,
Mondul instinctively shot it toward

the goal. The shot found its way
through a screen of players and into
the goal. That was all the scoring
Michigan needed as they consistently
controlled the tempo to the point
where Springfield could not muster
many serious offensive attacks. "We
played a give and go kind of game.
We used our speed with quick
passing, and that's been the
underlying strategy the whole
season," said sophomore Sharon
UNDER THE supervision of
coach Karen Collins, the field
hockey team prepares to tune up and
perfect their game today against Kent
State and Friday against Davis &
Elkins, before clashing with the Big
Ten on October 3 against Iowa, last
year's NCAA champs. "I'm really
pleased about our performance now
and glad there's time to improve
before the conference games," said
The next two games will serve as
a performance gage for the Michigan
team, a chance to measure their
ability and confidence before starting
the conference games. They will take
a step back and analyze their
standing. "It's important that we win
these games (Kent State and Davis
& Elkins) just so we're up and have
confidence going into the Big Ten,"
said sophomore Judy Burinskas.
Victories against Kent State and
Davis & Elkins could accelerate the
already grand momentum of
Michigan to the point where the
defending national champs witness
an unprecedented maize and blue
avalanche intrude upon the flat
landscape of Iowa on October 3. On
the other hand, a loss or two could
leave the team standing flat-footed,
doubting the suggestions of their 7-0
