A Wolverine field hockey team which had originally
set its sights on the Big Ten title will enter its final
homestand today tied for last with a 1-3 conference
record and with two of the top six teams in the country
remaining on its schedule.
Today's game against No. 6 Iowa (13-5 overall, 3-2
in the Big Ten) will be a rematch of last weekend's
blowout in Iowa City, which saw Michigan, 6-7-2
overall, suffer an 8-1 loss.
"We're going to have to play at the top of our
game," said senior co-captain Robin Ives. "We'll have
to keep our concentration to beat them."
On Michigan's last home stand, they were fired up
and rebounded from a 5-3 loss to Michigan State in
Lansing, to annihilate the Spartans, 7-0.
Coach Karen Collins is looking for that same
attitude today in order to avenge last week's loss to the
Hawkeyes. "I hope they come out with that same
spirit," she said. "That's the team I need to beat Iowa."
This task may prove more difficult, though, than
beating the Spartans. In addition to being ranked sixth
in the nation, Iowa sports the top two offensive players
in the conference. Erica Richards leads with six goals,
followed by current Big Ten player-of-the-week Tina
Parrot with five. Five Hawkeyes are among the top ten
ON SUNDAY, Michigan will wrap up its home
season against Ohio State (3-10-4 overall, 1-2-1 in the
Big Ten). "They're a young team," said Collins. "They
are still rebuilding their program after hiring a new
coach two years ago."
Ives also thinks the excitement of playing her last
home game, which is on "Fan Appreciation Day," will
be a factor. "It's going to be a real emotional weekend
for the seniors," she said. "It (Ohio State) shouldn't be

State has the second best goal-keeper in the conference
in Gabrielle Gurrieri, who has an .878 save percentage.
Her backup, Kellie Cloud, is not far behind with a .758
Following the Ohio State game, Michigan will go
on the road to take on the Buckeyes in Columbus and
then finish the season against Northwestern, which has
already beaten the Wolverines, 3-0.
"We would like an upset over either Iowa or
Northwestern and we have to beat Ohio State twice,"

Michigan cross country runner Brad Barquist runs in the
Michigan Open held two weeks ago. Barquist earned NCAA
indoor track honors for his performance last season.
Barquist is no
BY JODI LEICHTMAN
Last year, he stood in the shadows of fellow teammate, John
Scherer. Through diligence and perseverance, Brad Barquist is now for-
ging his identity as a member of the Michigan men's cross country team.
"Brad has a lot of confidence in himself," said coach Ron Warhurst.
"He's a bit shy, but he's aggressive on the track. He's really performing
up to his potential"
This sqson, Barquist has one overall first-place finish and has helped
the Wolvernes to two first-place finishes. He qualified last season for the
NCAA championship races in cross country where he placed 53rd.
Barquist was an NCAA All-American in indoor track. He finished
eighth in the 3,000 meter run at the NCAA Indoor-Championships in the
spring of this year.
BARQUIST'S teammates see him as a very positive influence.
"Brad is very competitive and a hard worker--especially when it comes to
running," said roommate and team member, Jeff Barnett. "He has a very
optimistic attitude about everything, but you can especially see it with
running. He's ready to take on the world."
"Brad's challenging me to do the best I can do," said teammate John
Scherer. Scherer, Michigan's No. 1 runner the past two seasons, has been
pressed by his teammate this season.
"Brad's hard work over the past two years has really paid off for
him," said Warhurst. "He came to Michigan as an above average athlete,
but continues to improve through all of his hard work and dedication."
While Warhurst credits Barquist with his improvement, Barquist
complements his coach. "He can take a good athlete and make him a
great one," said Barquist. "A great athlete and make him the best."
ALTHOUGH running does take a considerable amount of time, off
the track, Barquist is just like any other guy. "He's really quick-witted.
Call him a name and he'll call you something funnier, " added Barnett.
"Brad always wants to try new things. In fact, he's been bugging me to
take him bow-hunting."
This weekend is the Big Ten Championships which the team and
Barquist have been working towards since the beginning of the season.
"I'm looking towards the weekend with a positive attitude. I think both
myself and the team should do really well," said Barquist. "I guess I just
want to run well. I'd like to win the race, but it depends on the day and
"I'm really glad I have another year and a half to work with Brad at U
of M," said Warhurst. "By the time he leaves here, he has the potential to
be a Big Ten Champion and will be very near the front of the pack at the

Mandarich won't let anything tear
him away from football.
Mandarich, Michigan State's
hulking offensive tackle, suffered a
partially torn pectoral muscle while
lifting weights last week, but kept it
quiet. He played against Illinois and
Mandarich will be in the lineup again
tomorrow when the Spartans host
"It hurt so much I thought I might
not be able to play, but I did,"
Mandarich said. "There was nothing
the trainers could do to help me."
Macho tales about Mandarich are
The 22-year-old Canadian, a native
of Oakville, Ontario, has become
almost a cult figure on the Michigan
State campus. His legendary tales, of
course, have spread to the NFL.
"If Mandarich had come out (in the
1988 NFL draft), he'd have been the
No. 1 lineman taken. He takes them
down field 3 or 4 yards and puts them
on their back consistently. This kid
is one of the best offensive linemen
coming out (of college) that I've seen
in the last 15-20 years," said Carl
Mauck, Kansas City Chiefs offensive
It can be difficult to keep statistics
on offensive linemen but Ken
Hoffman, the Spartans' sports infor-
mation director, does his best.
Hoffman's list for Mandarich
includes things like "pancakes,"
where he flattens the man he blocks;
"OTF" where Mandarich blocks the
guy off the film; quarterback sacks
allowed and something Hoffman
labels "NM." That mcs "No mas,"
the defensive player quits.

No one delivers more hot,
fresh pizza than we do. In
fact, we deliver more pizzas
than all of the other pizza
places combined. Maybe
it's because of our guar-
anteed 30 minute delivery.
Or maybe it's the fact that
we use only the finest
ingredients on our pizzas.
