Michigan and Eastern Michigan.
Michigan, despite its 8-1 non-
conference record, is still considered
to be a mediocre team in the tough
Big Ten. The conference has four
teams ranked in Volleyball Month-
y's top twenty-five, including the
number one ranked team, Illinois.
The Big Ten is so strong that
the Wolverines finished ninth in the
conference last year with a 3-15
record, despite posting a 20-20

Others might ignore this strong
start, but the Wolverines think they
will make some other teams notice
"I'm looking forward to the
conference season," said senior
outside hitter/setter Marie Ann
Davidson. "I'm looking forward to
playing some tougher teams. Our
team plays better against more
competitive teams. I'd like to see
us be the upset team. Halfway
through the season, I'd like to hear
other teams saying we're going to

Davidson may end this season as
the greatest offensive player ever at
Michigan. Last season, she was an
honorable mention All-Big Ten
player, won a player-of-the-week
award, and placed fifth in the
conference in hitting efficiency.
This season, Davidson has a chance
to become the all-time leader in six

JUNIOR middle hitter Kim
Clover is solid at the net, leading
last year's team in total blocks,
block solos and assists. This year,
Clover is leading the conference in
hitting efficiency, tied for fourth in
blocks per game, and tied for ninth
in serving percentage.
Clover is pleased with the
team's progress, and is looking for
a strong season for the Wolverines.
"We have high expectations for
this year," said Clover. "We are a
much stronger team than the last
two years, with a deeper bench.
When Joyce started, we had seven
freshman. It was a young team, and
we've built on that. We have five
of those juniors still here, and will
have more experience than most
other teams in the conference."
The Wolverines will need to
have improved in order to beat the
Hurons, who they play in their
home opener tonight. The Hurons
defeated Michigan twice last year.

Huron coach Nona Richardson is
looking for some improvement
against the Wolverines. "We have a
strong front row, but the defense is

getting a lot more comfortable, and
we're just trying to work out the
kinks. We should be stronger
Richardson has great respect for
Michigan, but feels her club can
stop the Wolverines.
"Davidson is a nice player, and a
good setter," said Richardson.
"Their outside hitters are small, but
powerful, and they pass well too. I

"Eastern has a couple of big
hitters, especially in the middle,"
said Davidson. "They are a scrappy
team that will play tough defense.
In the past, we haven't played our

we can beat them."

The Michigan field hockey team embarked on their 1988 campaign
last weekend, facing three non-conference opponents in St. Louis. This
didn't figure to be an easy task for a young Michigan team.
Nevertheless, the Wolverines rose to the occasion in defeating Chico
State 2-1, Southern Illinois-Carbondale 3-2, and tying St. Louis
University 2-2 in a heated double-overtime battle.
Coach Karen Collins breathed a sigh of relief after the successful
weekend performance. "We were a little bit jittery in the first game, but
after the initial butterflies settled down, I noticed steady improvement in
the next two matches," said Collins.
Against Chico State, sophomore Josee Charvet opened the scoring
with Michigan's first goal of the season 16 minutes into the first
period. Junior Judy Burinskas, last year's second leading scorer;
followed with a goal of her own seven minutes later.
With the addition of four first year players along with the loss of
four seniors from last year's squad, a definite starting line-up has not yet
emerged. Collins has been shuttling players in and out, trying different
people at different positions.
"Hopefully everything will fall into place by the time we open the
Big Ten season October 2 against Michigan State," Collins said. "This
weekend should give us a pretty good indication of where we stand."
Meanwhile, the Wolverines (2-0-1) will hit the road once again
where they will play three top Northeastern teams' in Boston
University, Springfield College and the University of Massachusetts:
Both Boston University and University of Massachusetts are perennial
top twenty teams.,
"We have a lot of work ahead of us in the next couple of days,"
stressed Collins. "Although we still need to make a few minor
adjustments, I think we'll be able to hold our own."
