EVANSTON- It was like Hoosiers without the happy ending.
It was like David versus Goliath minus one slingshot.
It was a Michigan field hockey squad struggling for recognition against
the fourth-ranked team in the country, the Northwestern Wildcats.
Hollywood couldn't have written a better script. The underdog Wol-
verines challenging the juggernaut Wildcats on a cool, crisp, fall day in
Evanston. The script would have the Wolverines scoring a goal late in the
game to pull off a huge upset.
Of course, Evanston is a long way from Hollywood. As it was,
Michigan proved to be no threat to the Wildcats in the war for supremacy
in the Midwest Collegiate Field Hockey Conference. The final score, 2-0,
gives little indication as to how completely Northwestern dominated the
I took my usual seat before the game at the fifty-yard line, so as to be
in the middle of the action. I would have been better off sitting at the
twenty closest to Michigan's goal. The ball constantly seemed to be near
the Wolverine cage. In fact, it is a tribute to goalkeeper Joanne Green that
the final score was as close as it was.
If the atletic department were to make a five-minute highlight film of
this game, Gren would be in four-and-a-half minutes of it. Her 18 saves,
including one on a penalty shot, "wwd face for the Maize and Blue, and
even had them tied at halftime.
Unfortunately, the offense could do absolutely nothing. The Wol-
verines managed only two shots on goal the entire game. Northwestern
goalie Kim Metcalf probably had to take No-Doz to stay awake through
Don't get me wrong. Michigan is an improving team. Patricia Maran
helped to keep things close by playing excellent defense from her sweeper
position. Rookie Katie Vignevic's stock continues to rise as she got off
one of the team's two shots.
Progress is being made. They are miles ahead of where they were last
year, already doubling their 1988 total for-conference wins, but they still
have a ways to go before they can hope to challenge the conference
powers, Iowa and Northwestern.
After the game, head coach Patti Smith said "there will definitely be
some changes" offensively. These changes can only be for the better.
So, take heart, Hollywood fans. David and Goliath have a rematch in

'M' Spikers look to tame Broncos
by Ryan Schreiber
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's volley-
ball team faces Western Michigan
tomorrow as it steps out of its tough
Big 10 conference schedule.
Western Michigan (9-5 overall,
4-0 in the MAC) defeated Michigan
State last weekend, a team that
Michigan had trouble with earlier in
"Although they beat Michigan
State last week," Michigan head
coach Joyce Davis said, "it is not in-
dicative of their team strength. MSU
played without a setter, making their
offense the equivalent of an eighth-
grade team, and the match went five
MICHIGAN, mired in a five-
game losing streak, needs to stress
the fundamentals of the game, essen-
tially serving and passing, according
"I think that if our team doesn't
have lapses in passing, this is a
match we can win," Davis said. "We
have to serve well and pass well in
order to succeed. We have also had
mental and service lapses in the third
game of most of our matches.
"Against Iowa, Minnesota and
this past weekend versus Indiana and
Ohio State, we just did not pass in
the third game. We have to be a
little more consistent with our
offense," Davis said.
Michigan (5-7 overall, 0-5 in the
Big 10) expects to key on some of
Western Michigan's returning play-
Said Davis: "Mei Zhang is prod-
uctive from both the middle and
outside positions. We've been pretty
strong with our middle, so I think
we can counter her. Joanne Bingham
and Jan Catrell are also good, but
they aren't as mobile. Other than
keeping the ball away from Mei, we
should key on hitting and serving at
Bingham and Catrell and making
Fine frontcourt performances
from Karen Marshall, Julia Sturm,
and Carla Hunter, back from last
season's knee injury, have kept
Michigan close in previous matches.
But the backcourt, in defense and
service returns, killed the Wolverines
last weekend against Ohio State.
Davis feels that Michigan will
rebound and prey on that same aspect
of Western's game.

Michigan's frontline must excel in order for the volleyball team to top
Western Michigan on Wednesday. The Wolverines have never beaten
the Broncos during coach Davis' tenure.
"Western Michigan is not quite
as big as the Big 10," Davis said,
"and their defense is not as tena-
cious. Still, we have to perform to
During Davis' tenure, the Wol-
verines have dueled Western Mich-
igan to three consecutive five-game
matches, coming out on the shor
end each time.
"I hope that on Tuesday, we have
a bit of luck because if you go to a"
fifth game, that's sometimes what it
comes down to," Davis said.

Just when it seemed that last
week's winner, Dave Balza, was
going to claim a second consecutive
Griddes prize, newcomer Mohamed
Khalil stripped him of the chance.
Up until this point five final
contestants were deadlocked in clear-
ly one of the closest competitions of
the decade. Each had picked 18
games correctly. After days of calcu-
lations using our complex tiebreak-
ing system, our experts reached a
unanimous decision. Congratula-
tions to Mohamed Khalil!!!
Mohamed will be enjoying his
dinner for two at O'Sullivan's Eatery
and Pub on South University and
can claim his prize at 420 Maynard

Interview with the World
Leader in High Energy
Tuesday, October 17th
As an Electrical, Computer or Mechanical Engineering major,
you've probably heard a great deal about the scientific breakthroughs
at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. As one of the world's most
innovative and technologically advanced leaders in high energy
physics research, "Fermilab" makes headlines through the diverse
contributions of talented professionals. The Laboratory's seeking in-
novative individuals, like you, to join the challenge.
Electrical and Computer Engineers
In designing equipment for the Accelerator and Experimental area
systems, you'll be involved with everything from high and low level
processing systems to high power pulsed devices and power sup-
plies. Other projects will involve analog and digital design (specifically
ASIC and/or VLSI), data acquisition and high performance system
development. Knowledge of CAD/CAE systems is a definite plus.
The potential exists for involvement in the mechanical design and
fabrication of devices for the accelerator complex as well as the
overall design and operation of superconducting and cryogenic
devices. The opportunity to conduct finite element stress and thermal
analysis of vessels and support structures is also available. CAD train-
