The Wolverines look to use efforts like this to
Eastern Michigan in today's game against the
catapult themselves over
By Theodore Cox

The Michigan women's volleyball team is putting its perfect 4-0 record
to the test tonight as the spikers head to Ypsilanti to challenge Eastern
The Hurons have not been kind to the Wolverines in the past.
"They beat us the last two years, so we're definitely fired up, motivation
is not a problem," head coach Joyce Davis said.
Michigan will need a little more than motivation to come away with a
victory. The Hurons, 4-2, have improved their already talented roster by
recruiting last year's junior college player of the year, Nickki Stubbs.
Michigan's toughest task will be breaking through Eastern's strong middle
combination of Roxanne Munch and Sherry Anderson. The combination has
played together for three straight years. Anderson's strong setting to Munch
has helped Munch become the school's All-time leader in kills, blocks, and
The Wolverines have also been working together for awhile. Michigan's
starting six of Kim Clover, Autumn Collins, Carla Hunter, Kristen Lang,
Karen Marshall, Julia Sturm have been practicing since last spring. It is
expected that these six will play nearly all of the games tonight, but Davis
isn't afraid to use any of her first-year players.
"From the roster that we have, we can put just about any combination
out there as long as they continue to communicate," Davis said.
The Wolverines won't be short of support at Eastern's Bowen Field
House. The proximity of the the arena to Ann Arbor will bring the team's
families, roomates, fans, and alumni over to cheer on the Wolverines.
"We feel like it's a home game at their school," Davis said.

One of Washington's strongest
performances came this July in the
Sovran Bank tournament in Wash-
ington D.C. He fought the world's
No. 9 player and the eventual champ-
ion, Brad Gilbert, stroke for stroke,
before losing 7-6 in the third set.
However, Washington's first
thoughts of turning professional
came after winning the Seattle
$25,000 Challenger Tournament
later in the month.
"Up to that point he was 100%
sure that he was coming back to
school, " Eisner said. "And at that
particular time he called me and
indicated that there was at least some
thought in his mind (of joining the

any player to make, but especially

University of Michigan, the team,
and me personally. He is concerned
about letting us down and not

. A 1M.
Washington's fans hope that win-
ning will continue when he begins
his professional career in Los
Angeles later this month. His
transition is helped by the fact that
he will temporarily continue to
practice with the Michigan team and
that his mother will travel with him
while he is touring.
While Eisner said that Wash-
ington's parents are concerned that
the move will disrupt his academics,
Eisner believes it is only a tem-
"The fact of the matter is that Mal
will be in a position whereby he
certainly will finish his education at
some time in the future," Eisner
With nationally-ranked Dan Gold-
berg graduating last May, Wash-
ington's departure leaves the Wolver-
ines without their two top players
from a year ago - a fact that doesn't
escape sophomore David Kass. He

Wolverines' remaining cast, Eisner.
admits the task of playing without
America's No. 1 college tennis
player will be a huge adjustment.
"You can't take a player of that
ability off your team," Eisner said,
"and make any case of saying we're
going to be just as strong without
him.' I mean, that's just silly."
