The Michigan women's volleyball team will drift to
the other side of Lake Michigan this weekend, still
seeking their first Big Ten victory.
Michigan will volley first with Wisconsin tonight
in Madison and then head to Evanston to trade serves
Wisconsin boasts one of the top defensive rosters in
the Big Ten. As of last week the squad led the
conference in blocks per game, averaging 3.73. Much of
the defensive credit has to go to junior Lisa Boyd, who
manages 2.46 blocks a game herself. The Badgers'
Susan Wohlford handles the backcourt defense, leading
the conference in digs.
Northwestern will feature first-year setter Carey

Davis would like to reduce to one or two.
Searching for a cure, Davis has tried to establish
match pressure during the team's practices.
"It's really a physiological effect of whether you feel
confident at the service line, where it is in the match,
whether it's game point or whether it's zero-zero,"
Davis said. "All these factors affect the outcome of the
serve. In practice you're not going to have the kind of
adrenaline going that you have in a match. We try to
simulate some match type situations in practice, but
it's kind of difficult."
Davis will continue alternating Hayley Lorenzen and
Kristen Lang as she has been doing for the last few
matches. Lorenzen, who's been strong in the frontline,
will continue playing there with Lang coming in to

Icers to face new-look
Redskins in opener.

When the puck drops between Michigan and Miami of Ohio to start the
season tonight in Oxford, Ohio, Wolverine coach Red Berenson may see a
little of his own past behind the opposing team's bench.
After finishing dead last in the CCHA the last four seasons, the Redskins
have started over with new head coach George Gwozdecky, an assistant the
last five years at Michigan State.
Berenson, like Gwozdecky, was welcomed to the CCHA by a hapless
squad six years ago. Since then, the Michigan hockey program has slowly
risen to prominence, and is a contender for the league title this season.
Gwozdecky knows that Miami, like Michigan, will need patience to
ascend in the CCHA.
"We've got to be more competitive with the bottom four teams in the
league," Gwozdecky said. And because "Michigan is not one of those teams"
the Redskins are treating tonight's and tomorrow night's games (Goggin Ice
Arena, 7:30 p.m.) as somewhat less than pivotal.
But Berenson refuses to look for a sweep before tonight's matchup-
even though Michigan won all four of last year's games against Miami.
"We're not looking past the first game," he said. "But I'll be
disappointed if we lose that first game.
Because Gwozdecky is fresh off of his experiences at Wolverine hockey
nemesis Michigan State, where he helped head coach Ron Mason to a
national championship, there may be extra reason for concern.
"I don't think there will be as much polish as an MSU team, but you
will see some of the same philosophy," Gwozdecky said. Of course, he
doesn't have the same talent now that he had in East Lansing.
However, what he does have is ten of last year's top 12 Redskin scorers,
including two sophomores who made the Cooper CCHA All-Rookie team.
Craig Fisher led the team with 42 points while Ken House was fourth with
33. Also returning for the Redskins will be Tom Neziol, who missed 26
games last season with an arm injury.
Sophomore Mike Michaud will become the fulltime goaltender this
season with the loss of Steve McKichan to the Vancouver Canucks
Four Wolverine injuries will also help the Redskins. Right-winger Brad
Turner will be joined on the bench by forwards Mike Helber and Kent
Brothers. Frosh center Mark Ouimet is doubtful after aggravating a groin
Griddes player moves on
Herschel Walker has left the Dallas Cowboys! Why? No Griddes! Walker
agreed to the trade to the Minnesota Vikings because last week Anthony
Carter placed second in Griddes.
Herschel said he would share his dinner for two at O'Sullivan's Eatery
and Pub on South University with Carter if he would help with his picks.

The Michigan Invitational could

to take to Madison.
Three of the squad's best runners
have been red-shirted this season.
"It's an attempt to give some of the
younger kids some real good ex-
perience," Warhurst explained. "They
run only 5,000 meters in high
school as opposed to the 8,000
meters at this level." It is expected,
therefore, that at least five or six of
tomorrow's top runners will be first-
year students, and according to
Warhurst, they have improved each

are supposed to return for

to be among them. Warhurst called
Scherer "the best college runner in

The women's cross country team
races back into action as they host
the Michigan Intercollegiate Champ-
ionships tomorrow morning at the
University of Michigan golf course.
A big win at last weekend's
Michigan State Invitational has not

"We're going out there to win,
just like last weekend," coach Sue
Revenge might play an important
role in their ability to fulfill that
goal. Two meets ago, the
Wolverines were edged out of second
place at the Eastern Michigan
Invitational by just one point. The
team that did that to them, Central
Michigan, will be competing here
"As a team we're looking to win
on Saturday. Losing to Central
Michigan by one point was tough.
We want to avenge that loss," stated
senior Mindy Rowand.
That revenge factor may have
helped the runners keep their
intensity in practice this week
despite the easy victory at Michigan
"Practice has been awesome this
week. We've all been working really
hard and everybody looks super
strong after some of the workouts
we've had," Rowand said.
According to Rowand another
factor this weekend will be location.
Running on their home course
might work in the Wolverines'

there sometimes. It's one of the
toughest courses in the area, if-not
