The Michigan women's
volleyball team knew it would be
tough to defeat both Iowa and
Minnesota on the road. So head
coach Joyce Davis set the simple
goal of keeping each match close.
Staying close is exactly what the
Wolverines did against Iowa Friday
night. Michigan was so close that it
took the Hawkeyes five games to
defeat them, 15-7,7-15,1-15,17-
15,13-15.
However on Sunday, the
Wolverines struggled to keep pace
with Minnesota, losing 5-15,15-
12,1-15,9-15.
Michigan (0-3 in the Big Ten)
startedtoutrstrong against Iowa,
taking the first game, but suffered a
complete loss of concentration in
the third game. Michigan awoke for
the final two rounds, almost
snatching a victory.
"It was really tight, it could have
been anybody's game," Davis said.
"We executed the things that we
knew we had to do to have a chance
to win the match. We followed our
game plan."
The Wolverines' defensive
execution seemed to trouble the
Hawkeyes the most. Michigan
tallied an incredible 17 blocks in the
match. Julia Sturm accounted for
most of the blocks, finishing with
11 herself.
The team suffered a defensive
breakdown two weeks ago in their
Big Ten opener, so for the last ten
days in practice, Davis highlighted
defensive play.
"We had a tough week of practice
and that helped us a lot," said
outside hitter Karen Marshall

"Everyone did their job and we
really did what we had been working
on all week."
Another factor in Michigan's
solid play was that everyone was
healthy. For the first few weeks of
the season, many of the players
were suffering from the flu.
"We played really well as a
team," Marshall said. "We didn't
have any individual stand-out
performances, but we played well
together and that's what helped us
along."
Marshall and Sturm led the
Michigan squad with 15 kills each
and middle hitter Carla Hunter
finished with 12 digs against Iowa.
Controlling Minnesota, ranked
14th in the nation and 4-0 in the
Big Ten, was a tougher task than
keeping pace with Iowa.
The Gophers held Michigan to
an .121 team hitting percentage
compared to its average of .288.
Minnesota also returned better,
totalling 70 digs, whereas the
Wolverines only managed 44.
Michigan committed fifteen
receiving errors in the match.
"We weren't able to sustain our
intensity," Davis said. "In the third
game we couldn't hold our
concentration."
Overall Davis felt the squad put
forth a lot of effort in team play.
"We have a real good team that's
getting better every match," Davis
said. "We have to continue to work
hard and continue to improve."
Once again Marshall led
Michigan with 12 kills. Sturm
posted 10 digs for the Wolverines
and Kim Clover's four blocks was a
team high.

Griddes players grow
fangs after weekend
Remember Larry and Moe? Well, they are good examples of the
dreaded disease "Post-Griddes Withdrawal Syndrome" (PGWS), which
often strikes early Sunday morning as one is perusing the sports pages.
It most often afflicts sports junkies who don't really know a thing
about college football but feel an incessant need to play Griddes anyway.
Ninety-five percent of those afflicted have never predicted over 10 games
correctly.
Larry and Moe appeared in the Daily Friday, smiling optimistically
in preparation for Saturday's games. Unfortunately, they only got two
games right and Sunday morning began to feel nauseous.
"Just give me one more Griddes sheet," they were reported to be
whimpering on their way to the insane asylum. "Just one more chance."
If you want a chance to win Sunday brunch or dinner for two at
O'Sullivans Eatery and Pub on South University, just drop off your
picks at the Student Publications Building, 420 Maynard, by 5 p.m.

Michigan quickly padded its lead
when walk-on forward Katie
Vignevic took a rebound off
Buckeye goalkeeper Gabrielle
Guerrieri's pads and put it in 2:53
into the second half. Burinskas
added her second goal of the game-
again off a corner-with assists
from Charvet and Cantor. Ohio
State narrowed the margin to 4-2
when Loeper scored unassisted with
12:35 left.
Trish Maran sealed the
Buckeyes' coffin off a penalty
corner as Charvet collected her third
assist of the game. Sandie Marotti
also assisted on the play.
"I was happy to see us finally
break out of our offensive shell,"
said Smith. "We were doing a lot of
things that we worked on in
practice, such as trying to draw a
penalty corner."
The Wolverines continued to
excel at this aspect of the game
against OU when all three goals of
the shutout win were scored off
penalty corners. .
Michigan outshot Ohio 39-5 in
a game which was decided early.
Burinskas drilled home a pass from

Cantor 50 seconds into the game.
Charvet also got credit for an assist.
Then, 2:25 later, Trish Maran
scored off assists from Marotti and
Charvet to give Michigan a 2-0 lead
before most of the spectators had a
chance to get comfortable.
Burinskas completed the scoring
with her fourth goal of the weekend
16:42 into the second half with
assists credited to Cantor and
Charvet. Those assists were
Cantor's fourth and Charvet's sixth
of the weekend.
"I thought Josee played
extremely well," Smith said. "She's
a good communicator who really
understands the game and makes
thingshappen. Sharon did a better
job of combining with her
teammates. The player I don't think
gets enough credit, though, is
Joanne Green. She made up for our
defensive lapses with some
unbelievable saves."
Smith still saw plenty of room
for improvement before next
weekend's game with fourth-ranked
Northwestern.
"We need to sharpen our defense
and our passes, so we're not just
guessing out there. I told the
players to take tomorrow off, and
come to practice Tuesday ready to
work hard."

Although the men's cross country team
came away with a fifth place finish at the
Eastern Michigan Invitational on Friday, the
Wolverines top five finishers were all first-year
tunners.
"We ran much better than before," said an
ecstatic coach Warhurst in discussing his team's
performance. .While briskly walking to the
posted results, Warhurst continued to extol his
runners with the voice of a proud parent in
saying, "These. freshman have just been
t:emendous."

Frank Wolf finished 13th out of 61 total
runners to record the top Wolverine finish,
while Matt Joseph and Matt Schroeder finished
second and third respectively for the
Wolverines.
This is the first time these talented first-
year runners have had to run at a distance of
10,000 meters. Until Friday, the frosh had
been running solely 8,000 meter races.
Sean Sweat, who appears to be the top
Wolverine rookie, had the most interesting race
of all. Sweat was in 9th place and pacing the
Wolverine team with 3/4 of a mile left in the
event when he pulled up with a leg cramp.

Although the cramp forced him to finish
26th as he struggled across the finish line, it
seems clear that Sweat has the most potential
of all the Wolverine frosh. The leg cramp itself
can be attributed to the long 10,000 meter race.
After gaining some experience at this distance,
it seems that Sweat could become one of the
top runners in the Big 10.
The next contest for the Wolverine runners
will be Oct. 7, at the Michigan State
Invitational in East Lansing, where the rookie
Wolverine runners will continue to pursue the
most important intangible that all winning
teams must have-the experience that is needed
to win a Big Ten Championship.

after the game, "The Old Boys
traditionally play well at this match
because they gear up for it all year.
The Young Boys have to get

out in the first half, the Old Boys
were able to augment their lead by
adding a try worth four points, but
their two-point conversion was
unsuccessful.
The score at halftime, 7-0 in
favor of the Old Boys, was typical of
past Old Blues Games. In past

the first half, much of the second
half was dominated by defense. Both
sides were able to move the ball
with relative ease until they moved
into scoring positition. Once either
side approached the goal line their
respective defenses tightened up and
a struggle developed over every inch

suddenly tied at six apiece.
This score for the Young Boys
seemed to cause the Old Boy's
defensive dam to buckle. In a span of
eight minutes, the Young Boys
added two more tries and two
successful conversions. Horton
spearheaded the assualt with a two
