'M' SWEEPS SIX SCHOOLS IN 12 GAMES
Spikers take third invitational
SPORTS OF THE DAILY
By LISA GILBERT
It's hard to believe that a little over a week
ago the Michigan volleyball team was singing
the blues. The team lost senior setter Lisa Vahi
with an injury and suffered through a dismal five-
game losing streak. The outlook for the rest of
the season appeared bleak.
But the Wolverines showed remarkable
resiliency and rebounded to end their slump.
Michigan started on the comeback trail with a
much-needed Big Ten victory over archrival
Michigan State early last week. The Wolverines
then won their third Invatational Championship
this year in a 16-team tournament at Delaware
At the onset of the Spartan match, it looked
like the losing streak would continue. Michigan
State won the opening game,15-10. Just when it
seemed the Wolverines had reached bottom, the
offense came alive with a vengance, sweeping the
next three games by a combined total of 45-23.
Michigan won the match 3-1 and raised its Big
Ten record to 2-5.
AN IMPORTANT factor in the victory
was the dominating net play of sophomore Kim
Clover, who finished with two block solos and
four assists. Another key contributor was
sophomore Karen Marshall, who led the offense
with 15 kills.
The Wolverines (19-8) carried the momentum
into last weekend's tournament in Delaware. The
team seemed almost invincible, winning all six
of its matches in a best two-out-of-three format
without losing a single game.
In the opening round, Michigan easily handled
Lafayette (15-5, 15-11), Hofstra (15-6, 15-6), and
American University (15-6, 15-7). The
Wolverines continued their rampage with a
second-round win over George Mason (15-8,15-
11) and then went on to defeat Princeton (15-9,
15-8) in the semi-finals.
In the final round, Michigan captured the
tournament championship in convincing fashion
with a 15-7, 15-8 victory over Syracuse.
Although happy with the team's performance,
Michigan head coach Joyce Davis remained
"We're still sruggling in the setters position,
but we started to play well in the Princeton and
Syracuse matches," said Davis. "I'm pleased with
the outcome because it was a true team effort.
When you play six matches in two days, you
need to have everyone contribute, and that is
exactly what we got."
The Wolverines hope their luck will continue
as they travel to Illinois on Friday and Purdue on
Saturday for two important Big Ten matches.

The Michigan women's golf team
finished their fall season on a down
note at the Lady Kat Invitational in
The team finished a 17th out of a
17 team field. Kentucky finished
first, with North Carolina placing
second and Indiana taking third.
Michigan head coach Sue Leclair
considered the season a learning
experience since the Wolverines
fielded three players yet to face
In addition, Leclair felt that
coming into the tournament her
team was at a disadvantage since
Michigan was competing against a
field drawn predominantly from the
south, where teams can take
advantage of the favorable weather
During the tournament the team
averaged a score of 87.6, with
newcomer Mary Hartman leading all
Michigan golfers with a three-round
total of 253. Donna Greenberry, a
senior placed second among the Lady
The team will renew its season at
the end of March as Leclair looks
forward to a better spring.

Spartan delinquent to
play on Saturday
EAST LANSING (AP) - The
playing status of two Michigan
State football players - All-Big
Ten punter Greg Montgomery and
backup tailback Blake Ezor - will
remain unchanged despite their recent
arrests, Coach George Perles said
Ezor, 21, a sophomore from Las
Vegas, Nev., spent Thursday night
in the East Lansing jail after he was
taken into custody and ticketed for
driving while intoxicated.
"Blakes' situation was that it was
an internal situation that I took care
of. In his situation, (his playing
status) will be the same way for the
rest of the year," Perles said.
Ezor traveled with the team last
weekend and played. He picked up 5$
yards on 12 carries and scored a
touchdown on a 13-yard run Saturday
in a 38-0 victory over Northwestern.
Montgomery, 22, of Shrewsbury,
N.J., was arrested about 3 a.m.
Sunday when East Lansing police
responded to a complaint about
someone throwing rocks through the
windows of an apartment building.
Police said they arrested
Montgomery after seeing him
throwing rocks at the building.
Three windows were broken.
The Ingham County Prosecutor's
office was to decide whether to
c.harge Montgomery in the incident.
In September, Montgomery was
charged with a misdemeanor for his
role in an Aug. 29 accident that
totalled two vehicles, one of them
Montgomery was charged with
improper starting of a vehicle for
starting up a:construction truck that
lurched forward and ran into Ezor's
car and a tree before it came to a
