WHEREVER ABBOTT has
gone, he has won fans over not only
with'his courageousness, but mainly
with his talent. This summer, while
on the United States national team
travelling in Cuba, Abbott received
numerous standing ovations in front
of as many as 50,000 Cuban fans.
On the U.S. team, Abbott posted an
8-1 record and a 1.70 ERA in 12
appearances.
At the Pan American Games in
particular, Abbott was effective.
Inspired by carrying the flag, he
went on to strike out 15 men in
12.2 innings, recording a 2-0 record
without allowing an earned run. His
performance aided the U.S. team to a
silver medal finish.
With all the individual attention
drawn to Abbott in the past, one
would think that he would have
become completely self-oriented, but
this is not at all the case.

By GARY RESCH
Around five minutes after the
whistle blew finalizing
Northwestern's 3-0 field hockey
victory over Michigan, a player
dressed in maize and blue pounded
the mid-field turf in tantrum-like
frustration. Michigan had just lost
its third straight conference game
after a highly successful non-
conference season.
Michigan could muster f e w
potent offensive attacks as the strong

Northwestern defense led by senior
Jocelyn Villanueva executed tight
coverage throughout the game. "We
wanted to control the game a little
more than we did," said Coach Karen
Collins.
Michigan is now 0-3 in Big Ten
games after a 7-0 non-conference
start. "We designed the schedule to
build confidence, which it did,"
Collins said,"but Northwestern has
traditionally been a Top 10 team.
We knew we had to play a good

game, and we didn't."
Michigan is now 0-11-0 against
Northwestern, but Coach Collins
sees a vast improvement in her team
as compared to past years dating
back to her rookie season as coach in
1987. "Three years ago we lost to
Iowa 14-0. This year we took them
to double overtime," she said.
Now that the Michigan team has
tumbled off of the mountain to
which the "confidence-building" non-
conference season had lifted them,
there can be speculation as to
whether the first 10 games
sufficiently prepared the team for the
competition that it is now
encountering in the Big Ten. But
with seven conference games
remaining Michigan can regroup.

I came to Michigan to get to the
College World Series," explained
Abbott, who at 20 is the youngest
player to win the award in its ten
years of existence. "The individual
awards are an added bonus, but I
want to be in Omaha (site of the

College World Series) at the end of
the season. It is hard to believe that
all of this has happened. To be able
to bring this award back to the
University of Michigan is a great
honor and a tremendous feeling."

The Michigan women's soccer
club beat Western Michigan
yesterday at Kalamazoo, 2-0.
Freshman Krista Towne scored
two goals and also played one half in
goal to preserve the shutout.
Sophomores Amy Stock and Sue
Bradford had one assist apiece.
After the game the club
announced that sophomore Kris Fox

Outstanding Halfback Award.
"It was a good controlled match,
we dominated the field," said Fox.
"This will get us ready for our game
against Bowling Green on Sunday."

Harriers trek to IUl
The men's and women's cross
country teams travel to Bloom-
ington for the Indiana Invitational
this weekend.. The Big Ten
championships will be held at the
Indiana site next month.

This weekend will be a true test
of the Wolverines' progress. Aside
from Indiana, Michigan will face
other Big Ten rivals Minnesota,
Illinois, and Purdue. Top challenges
for the men will come from
Illinois, and for the women, from
Minnesota.
Both Michigan teams look
strong. All-American John Scherer,
sophomore Brad Barquist, transfer
students David McKay and Ryan
Robinson, senior Joe Schmidt, and
sophomore Jeff Barnett, have
formed a solid pack this season.

Likewise, senior Cheri Sly,
captain Traci Babcock, sophomores
Mindy Rowand and Jennifer
McPuck, juniors Ava Udavia, and
Debbie Palmer have placed
consistently well for the
Wolverines.
Both Wolverine teams face their
toughest competition of the season.
With the Big Ten meet only 22
days away, this Invitational will be
a good indication of where the
Wolverines will place in the Big
Ten.
