Gophers
provide
challenge
for Blue
BY DAVID HYMAN AND
JAY MOSES
Since the Big Ten switched to
divisional baseball play and
instituted a post-season tournament
in 1981 there have only been two
champions. Michigan has won five
times and Minnesota three. Last
year, the Gophers defeated the
regular-season champion Wolverines
en route to the crown.
These two perennial Big Ten
powers clash again this weekend, as
the Wolverines travel to Minn-
eapolis for a pair of doubleheaders
with the Golden Gophers Saturday
and Sunday.
"I'm looking forward to the
weekend," Michigan coach Bud Mid-
daugh said. "It will be a key series.
It's always a good matchup."
THE WOLVERINES are com-
ing off of a doubleheader sweep of
Wayne State Tuesday. Last weekend,
they opened their Big Ten season by
taking three of four games from
Northwestern.
Michigan will likely go with a
pitching rotation of Tim Lata, Ross
Powell, Mike Grimes and Jeff
' Tanderys.
Among those pitchers who may
see action for the Gophers are Denny
Neagle, David Anderson, Eric Porter
and Shane Kansas.
Minnesota (8-6-1) is coming off a
big 7-6 win over powerhouse
Oklahoma State Sunday. That
victory should give the Gophers
plenty of confidence heading into
this weekend's action.
THE ONLY problem with the
game came at the end, when the
Minnesota Twins had an exhibition
game scheduled and wanted to take
the field.
The scene conjured up visions of

Two of Bo's Boys enjoy 10-day tour of Ireland
after giving time to help Ann Arbor children

BY JODI LEICHTMAN
Classes, practice, and games consume a large
portion of an athlete's day, but many members of
Michigan's sports teams also find time to work with
area children.
Often, their time spent working with kids is
overlooked by the general public. However, for two
Michigan students, the time dedicated to such
programs has led them to an opportunity many would
gladly accept.
Recently Pat Olszewski and Ken Mouton, two
graduating seniors from the 1988 Rose Bowl
champion football squad, were chosen to participate in
a ten-day tour of Ireland.
Olszewski and Mouton, along with 13 other
college students from around the United States, will
serve as counselors for the 124 Young Columbus
XXXIII winners.
"I've always wanted to go overseas and this fulfills
one of my goals," Mouton said. "I've always wondered
about other cultures, and I hope to gain an insight of
the country and its feelings toward America."
Olszewski, who has some Irish blood in his family,
/Daily said: "I hope to learn a lot about Ireland. I'd like to
play learn of its history - my history."
take The trip is sponsored through Parade and its
distributing newspapers. The children (ages 12-17)
were chosen from the paper's carriers and classroom
readers.
thout The counselors, all seniors at their respective

colleges who were recommended by faculty members,
compose a staff of 15 from eight different schools.
Their qualifications include former or present work
with children and involvement in sports, sororities,
fraternities, or other college campus activities.
Mouton, who will be graduating with a degree in
Sports Management and Communication, hopes to
further his education after graduation by attending
Michigan's School of Social Work and obtaining his
master's degree. He also hopes to one day set up
programs for disfunctional families.
Through Project Outreach, Mouton has had the
opportunity to help deprived kids at Peace
Neighborhood. He's worked with children who have
been molested or lived in crack houses.
And he's gained an insight of satisfaction.
"I feel as if I owed these kids something," said
Mouton, who grew up in a low-income section of
Naples, Florida. "I've gained a special feeling about
being a positive role model for these kids. And I feel
my work with them has meant something to the kids."
Olszewski will also be graduating with a Sports
Management and Communication degree. His
immediate plans following graduation include a three-
month internship with a CBS affiliate in Atlanta,
Georgia, and possibly following the internship,
holding the position of treatment specialist at
Boysville in Monroe, Michigan.

"They looked awesome against

"They're playing much better than

"We're pleased with our progress
so far," Minnesota assistant coach
Rob Firnasiere said. "We've played
some real tough games."

Zonder leads women linksters
into Bloomington for tourney
BY THEODORE COX
The women's golf team will venture to Bloomington, Indiana Saturday
and Sunday to try and rebound from their disappointing finish during the
Summerfield Golf Classic in Florida, where the team placed ninth out of a
field of 11 teams.
The weak point in the team's play was their middle game. The
Wolverines accumulated 15 penalty strokes over three rounds. Coach Sue
LeClair blamed the errant shots on the course. "It's the make of the course
down in Summerfield. It's very similar to the courses in Scotland. All of
the kicks in the course go out of bounds or in the water," LeClair said.
LeClair is looking forward to her team playing in Indiana because the
course there plays the same way Michigan's does.
The fieft of 13 teams includes such Big Ten rivals as Purdue, Illinois,
Iowa, Wisconson and Michigan State.
"I'm just looking for some good scores," LeClair said. "I hope they play
swell, but if we shoot the scores these kids are capable of shooting, we will
be right in the middle of the pack."
The team will be led by first-year student Erica Zonder, whose play this
year has been impressive. Her average of 83.2 per round is the lowest on the
squad. She has set high goals for herself, and continues to improve.
"I'm looking forward to getting a lot better because I want to be the lead-
er of the country, as opposed to just the school," Zonder said. "I'm planning
on working hard all summer because it's not just enough for me to be lead-
ing the team. I want the whole team to be able compete with the top
schools."

Chris Gagin, who has been out for
several games with a hand injury.
Gagin said the cast would be
removed and the hand x-rayed
yesterday, but Middaugh indicated
that it is unlikely that he will be
able to play.
"I doubt if he'll be back,"
Middaugh said. "I really don't plan
to have him, probably until May."
As for the added pressure on
sophomore Dave Everly, who has
been playing in Gagin's place,
Middaugh said: "Well, it will give
him a lot of playing time."
With or without Gagin, though,
Firnasiere thinks this weekend's
games should provide some good
competition.
"This is a big matchup," he said.
"It's going to be a great battle."
QB Brown out
for spring
BY STEVE BLONDER
Michigan quarterback Demetrius
Brown is out for the remainder of
spring practice after breaking his
left hand last week. Brown suffered
the injury when he hit his hand on
a lineman's helmet after com-
pleting a pass.
"It's too bad, it's going to make
it a little more difficult for Deme-
trius," coach Bo Schembechler
said, yesterday.
Brown, who quarterbacked
Michigan to a 22-14 Rose Bowl
victory, was battling with Michael
Taylor, Wilbur Odom, Elvis
Grabic, and Ken Sollem for the
starting berth.
Spring practice culminates next
Saturday with the annual Maize
and Blue game. Tickets for the
game are $3.

BY THEODORE COX
After battling the horrible playing
conditions in Kentucky last week-
end, the men's golf team is looking
forward to its trip today to Hunting-
ton, West Virginia where they will
play in the Marshall Invitational.
Despite the wind and rain, the
team played well in University of
Kentucky's Johnny Owens Invita-
tional in Lexington. Michigan plac-
ed fifth out of a field of 19 teams.
Bob Papp led the team with
scores of 74 and 72. The team played
in the rain until the fifth hole
Saturday, but once the rain cleared,
Papp's play improved. He said he
was pleased to shoot in the 70's con-
sidering the weather circumstances.
"It was a struggle," Papp said.
"It's just one of those things where
you kind of grind away, and the
grinders who play well win and

tournament. Pond triple-bogeyed the
final hole, the weakest point in his
loop.
Coach Jim Carras said: "Our asset
has been that we've had good
balance. The negative, the problem
we're confronted with now, is trying
to find a fifth man that can
contribute and shoot consistently in
the 70's.
"We've got some guys capable of
doing that, but until we get a chance
to play a few more rounds, we won't
know for sure who that's going to
be. I think we've got them on the
team, its just a question of which
one surfaces as the number five
man."

Patel is looking forward to the
weekend. "I like the course a lot," he
said. "I think the team will play
really well there. It's well suited to
our team."
The Wolverines will have to be
on top of their game since they will
be competing against the strongest
field they have faced this season. The
team will challenge several of its top
rivals including Ohio State, North-
western and Kentucky.
"The teams we have to beat will
be in the next two tournaments,"
Carras said. "That's going to be crit-
ical for us as a team and
individually."
