Once again the women's cross
country team (2-0) came home
winners, this time from the
Western Ontario Invitational in
London, Ontario. Michigan ran
away from the 10 other teams
competing at the meet tQ win by a
comfortable margin. T h e
University of Toronto edged out
Western Ontario University for
second place.
Cheri Sly led the Wolverines
with a third-place finish, covering
the 5000 meter course in 18:01.
She is off to a strong start after
experiencing injuries earlier this
season.
Team captain Traci Babcock ran
to a seventh-place finish with
teammates Mindy Rowand and
Jennifer McPeck close behind in
eighth and ninth p 1 a c e
respectively.
"It was nice that Jennifer could
run such a strong race in her
hometown," said Michigan head
coach Sue Foster. "I was happy
to see her finish in the top 10."
Ava Udvadia rounded out

Michigan's top five with
twelfth-place finish.

"Our team ran in a tight
pack," said Foster. "From the two
kilometer mark on they [the top
five] stayed in the top 15."
Junior Debbie Palmer and
first-year runner Karen Wilke also
raced well.
The Wolverines will train the
next couple weeks. Their next
meet isn't until October 10. They
will then travel to Bloomington
for the Indiana Invitational. It
will be an important meet for the
Wolverines because it will be a
pre-Big Ten showdown.
Minnesota and Indiana should give
Michigan its biggest challenge
yet.
Michigan should be a leading
contender for the Big Ten title.
The Wolverines have proved to be
a consistent pack of runners as a
team. This past weekend, their
top five finished within 4 2
seconds of each other. Other top
contenders include Wisconsin and
Minnesota.

For the volleyball team, the
phrase - pick yourself up, dust
yourself off, start all over again -
can apply. Last weekend saw
Michigan open the Big Ten season
with a tough; defeat to Indiana and
then rebound with a close win over
Ohio State.
It looked as though t h e
Wolverines (11-3 overall, 1-1 Big
Ten) were on their way to an
impressive opening win against
Indiana as they took the first two
games, 16-14 and 15-12. But then
Michigan collapsed and lost three
straight, 8-15, 11-15 and 10-15, to
give Indiana the match, 3-2.

The bad momentum
to the Ohio State
Saturday, as Michigan
first game, 12-15.

The turnaround then began.
Michigan won games two and three,
15-10 and 15-11. The Wolverines,
however, suffered a setback in game
four, 3-15. But their previous
night's experience did not go to
waste as Michigan pounded the
Buckeyes 15-0 in the fifth game for
the match.
"We made progress," said Davis.
"We played two and a half hours
each night. We just have not been in
very many five game matches.
Having had the experience against
Indiana, we are not going to make
the mistake again."
Standouts in the two games were
junior Marie-Ann Davidson who had
24 kills against Indiana and senior
Lisa Vahi who chipped in with 17
kills. Sophomore Kim Clover also
had a strong overall weekend.
The Wolverines travel to Eastern
Michigan tonight to try to avenge an
earlier season loss.

The Michigan field hockey team
had a productive weekend trip to
Ohio. The Wolverines tied Kent
State on Saturday and beat Davis and
Elkin's on Sunday to raise their
record to 8-0-1.
In a grueling match against the
Golden Flashes, Michigan went two
overtimes, and the game ended with
the two teams deadlocked at one.
Trish Mondul scored the only
Wolverine goal.
The weekend trip finished with a
3-0 shutout win over Davis and
Elkin's. Mondul scored her second
goal of the weekend. Judy Burinskas
and Robin Ives scored the other two
Michigan goals.
Goalie Gillie Pieper continued her
excellence this weekend, recording
eight saves in each game to bring
her season total to 39 saves in 41
chances. Even more impressive was
Pieper's fifth shutout win this
season in only nine games.

Soccer team blasts
Indiana, 7-1
The women's soccer team defeated
the University of Indiana, 7-1, in a
game played in South Bend, Ind. on
Sunday. The victory raised
Michigan's record to 2-2-4. It was
an important win because the,
Wolverine soccer squad only has
club status. The Hoosiers fielded a
varsity team.

Amy Stock was the main
offensive weapon for the
Wolverines, opening the scoring just
three minutes into the match and
adding another goal in the second
half.
Goalkeeper Natasha Westland
shut out the Hoosiers in the first
half before yielding to Dao-Laing
Chou. Westland then scored a goal
in the second half. The Wolverines
play Michigan State today at 4:30

"We were up 8-4 in the third
game and had our opportunity right
there," said Michigan head coach
Joyce Davis. "Quite honestly, we
just lost our concentration. Indiana
picked up their tempo and started
running a quicker offense in the last
half of game three and through
games four and five. We had some
problems with transition in the
middle."

DETROIT - John Habyan and
the sixth-place Baltimore Orioles
dealt a blow to Tiger pennant
hopes, frustrating Detroit 3-0 at
Tiger stadium last night in front of
only 20, 015 fans.
Habyan, 6-6, stymied Tiger
hitters for eight innings, allowing
only three singles before tiring in
the ninth. Habyan, who entered the
game with a 4.94 earned run average,
did not allow a runner to reach
scoring position until he surrendered
consecutive singles in the last
inning. Tom Niedenfuer came on to
get the last two outs and record the
save.
Jack Morris, 18-11, started
strongly for Detroit striking out the
side in the first inning but could not
keep pace with Habyan. Morris
struckout10 in eight innings of
work, but the eighth hit he allowed
did him in.
The Orioles jumped to a two run

lead in the third. Second baseman
Pete Stanicek singled past a diving
Lou Whitaker to knock in Jim
Dwyer. Stanicek then stole second
and scored on Fred Lynn's base hit
to center.
Baltimore added a run in the fifth
when Stanicek led off with a walk
and moved to second on a sacrifice
bunt by Rene Gonzalez. The rookie
went to third on a balk by Morris
and scored on Eddie Murray's single
to center.
The Tigers remain two and a half
games behind the American League
East Division leading Toronto Blue
Jays. The Blue Jays lost t o
Milwaukee, 6-4, last night. Detroit
has six games remaining *in the
season, three more with Baltimore
and three with Toronto.
Mets 1, Phillies 0
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -
Howard Johnson doubled home the
game's only run in the second

inning and John Candelaria and two
relievers combined on a seven-hitter
as the New York Mets beat the
Philadelphia. Phillies, 1-0, last
night.
The victory moved the Mets
within two games of the National
League East leading St. Louis
Cardinals. The Mets have five games
to play while the Cardinals have
seven.
Reds 6, Braves 5
CINCINNATI (AP) - Homers
by Buddy Bell and Barry Larkin
highlighted a six-run fourth inning
that carried Cincinnati to a 6-5
victory over the Atlanta Braves last
night, preserving the Reds' slim
chance in the National League West.
The Reds overcame a 5-0 deficit
to temporarily avoid giving the
division title to the San Francisco
Giants, who need just one victory or
a loss by Cincinnati to clinch its
first division championship since
1971.
