Hodge's shotput leads
Basketball Top 20
BY MARK KATZ
The women's indoor track team
continued to improve at their third
meet of the season Saturday at
Eastern Michigan University.
"I thought we performed well as
a team," said fifth-year coach James
Henry. "We had a number of
substantial improvements from
week two (last weekend at the
Illinois Invitational) to week three."
The meet was highlighted by the
performance of Starry Hodge in the
shotput. Hodge placed second with
a score of 49-feet, 2-inches -an
improvement of over two feet from
last week and a distance within four
inches of NCAA qualifying
standards. (Athletes must achieve a
NCAA-designated time or distance
to be eligible for competition in the
NCAA championships in early
IN ADDITION, distance
runners Mindy Rowand and Carol
Boyd, who continue to maintain the
high level of achievement they
displayed in the first two track
meets and the cross country season,
placed first and second, respectively,
in the 3,000 meters.
In the 55-meter hurdles, senior
Dana Davidson cleared the NCAA
qualifying time of 8.01 seconds
convincingly. She recorded a career
best and school record time of 7.90
The final overachiever of the day
was first-year runner Megan Nortz,
who captured first place in the
1,000 meter run.
HOWEVER, the success of
the team did not overshadow the
fact that a few team members were
still nursing injuries. Junior
sprinter Gillian Osborne was still
having problems with her knee, and
Tracy Babcock and Ava Udavia were
recovering from "a few minor
While Henry cited improvement,
he is not yet satisfied with the
team's performance. "I'm very
pleased, but satisfaction isn't there
yet because we still have room to
improve," he said. "If we continue
to improve at this rate, I think
we're going to be satisfied at the
end of the year. All areas on our
track team have improved."
Henry and the team will travel
to Ohio State this upcoming
weekend for the Lady Buckeye
meet, which will be the first
scoring meet in Henry's career. "It
will be the first time that we will
have the opportunity to try to win
an invitational outside of our (Big
Ten) championships." Ohio State
and Purdue, who both competed at
Eastern Michigan, will also attend
this week's meet.

Blue collar maize line
keys Red's red. hot team
COLUMBUS - Who needs razzle and dazzle? Who needs pizzazz?
Who needs it? Who wants it?
I'll take blue collar and everything that comes with it - the ring
around the collar, the smell of sweat, the dark black oil stains on the shirt.
How does the Michigan hockey team spell blue collar?
Like those greasy things on a car, hub caps. Only in Wolverine
country, HUB stands for Timmy Helber, Jeff Urban, and Kent Brothers,
the team's fourth line. They wear maize shirts in practice - are proud of
such a fact - but there's gotta be a blue collar on it somewhere.
Now let's define blue collar. This isn't a story about three guys who
go to class by day, play hockey at night, and work the midnight shift at
the General Motors Poletown plant, although Helber does build houses in
INSTEAD, it's their blue collar play on ice where they exemplify the
lunch box beer commercials where guys work hard until the whistle
blows, and full of sweat and a smile, they head home. Job done and done
well. But with no glitz.
For Michigan, the maize line's job was to kill time. If the other lines
could rest for a bit, while no damage was done, they were doing their job.
But lately, they've had other ideas.
Like score. And score first. In
the Wolverines' six game winning
streak, the fourth line has scored
the first goal five times.
"Our line seems to be clicking
and when you get into a certain
groove, things just go in," said Jeff
Urban, who started the scoring both
times against Ohio State with his
first goals of the season. "I think
the rest of the team sets us up.
When we get to the fourth line, the
other teams are not expecting us,
they're kinda buttered up."
Added linesmate Brothers: "We
push everyone to work harder.
That's part of our job. When we
work hard it forces everyone else to 'We're just givin' it our-
work hard." all, havin' a blast,
THE FOURTH line isal, hv kn '

can directly be correlated to the - Tim Helber
team's rise in the standings.
"They have to play like they're important," coach Red Berenson said.
"Right now, they're playing like they're important. Earlier, they weren't
playing effectively as a line or seeming to have a purpose. Now they're'
realizing they can do something to help this team."
They make the goals, they bring home some of the bacon. Blue collar.
"We just lit a fire underneath ourselves," Helber said. "We're just
givin' it our all, havin' a blast, playin' hockey."
YOU CAN'T get much simpler than that.
Forget the stomachs, but this line is Fred Flinstone, Archie Bunker:
and Ralph Kramden.
Right now, this team is on a honeymoon. Six in a row. Nine of 11.
From fifth place and sliding to second place and rising.
After Saturday's game, the Red Baron was smokin'. Berenson held a
cigar in his hand. When asked why he decided to light up after the game he
smiled and said, "The time is right."
It's right, he explained, because, "this is the best I've felt about a total
team effort for a 60 minute game. I liked our work ethic."
The work ethic started with the blue collar line. Helber, Brothers and
The maize line. It's comin' through.
