While the early fall sun broke
through the clouds this weekend, the
Wolverine Field Hockey team broke
through St. Louis and Boston
College, sweeping their weekend
series of competition.
With a 2-0 shutout on Friday,
Michigan held true to its game plan
of slowing down St. Louis' highly
mobile forwards. The Wolverines
dictated the tempo of the game
throughout,though Coach Patti
Smith admits they did so more
effectively in the second half.
"In the second half we began to
play with a bit more strength,"
Midfielder Judy Burniskas exhib-
ited some of that strength in the first
half by forcing a close range attempt
through the St. Louis defense on a
corner shot. Senior Sharon Cantor
followed Burniskas' lead by
accurately placing a shot into the St.
Louis netting from 15 feet out.
However, Smith emphasized the
defense's ability to spur an offensive
attack. "We took a bit of their attack
away and generated our own," she
The Wolverines then took on and
beat Boston College Sunday, 4-2.
Though not a league game, Coach
Smith felt was a serious challenge to
"Every time a team from the East
comes to the Midwest, it's
important for us to show our
strength," Smith said.
But Michigan fell behind, 1-0,
only 3:50 into the game. Joelle
Kozma scored for B.C. on a shot
which was deflected high into the
goal. Sheila Jackman increased the
Eagles' lead when she netted a shot
off a corner 8:21 into the match.
"I was a little concerned," said
Smith. "Our team has a lot of
The Wolverines did not waste any
time getting back in it. Less than
four minutes after the Eagles' second
goal, Trish Maran rocketed a pass
from Sandie Marotti into the net to
cut the deficit to one goal.
Michigan had another corner
opportunity with 14:24 remaining in
the first half. Though they failed to
get a quick shot, Mary Peters found
Kristin Shaiper on the right side,
who scored to knot the game at two.
Just 1:15 later, Hilary Hughes
gave the Wolverines the lead for
good when she converted yet another
Wolverine corner off a pass from
"I was really happy that our
forwards were finally starting to
click with our midfielders," said
Smith. "The most important thing
is that we played together."
Judy Burinskas iced the game
with a hard shot from a perfectly
executed corner for the only goal of
the second half.

Men runners speed up*
for meet at Wisconsin
Stone ages after rough
weekend of Griddes

The men's cross country team
needed some improvement Saturday
at the Michigan Invitational.
The runners made great strides in
tuning-up for the Big Ten meet on
October 28 in Madison, Wisconsin.
On Sept. 9, team time trials had
been run on the same course, the
University of Michigan golf course.
Saturday's times were better for
nearly every runner on the hilly
Jeff Canada, a University grad-
uate assistant from Texas, ran the
8,000-meter race in 24 minutes and
39 seconds for the victory. Red-
shirted Brad Barquist demonstrated
some of the promise in Michigan's
future as he raced to a second place
Sean Sweat, a first-year runner
from Monroe, Michigan, ran a
26:23, good enough for sixth
overall and first among Michigan
runners. The next five Wolverines,
in order of finish, were Frank Wolf,
Matt Joseph, Jason Colvin, David
Dimcheff, and Chris Childes. David
Dimcheff, a junior, was the only
Wolverine among the top six not in
his first year of eligibility.
"I was really pleased with the
way they ran," explained coach Ron
Warhurst. "They compete very
well. You can have all the talent,
but if you don't compete well under
pressure all that talent will be*
Coach Warhurst planned on
using this meet to help him decide
which seven runners will compete
in Madison. Sweat, Wolf, Joseph,
Dimcheff, and Childes are pretty
well set at this point. Colvin may
travel, but Warhurst may decide to
red-shirt him instead. The others
runners competing for the
remaining spots include first-year
racers Phil Sanborn and Matt
Schroeder and sophomore Andy
Ruzicho. Warhurst will use the
next week and a half to decide
which athletes will occupy the last
The Wolverines have one more
meet, Friday at Eastern Michigan,
before the Big Tens. Warhurst
expects to send four or five
competitors to get some added
experience and to help finalize the

Poor Wolverine hockey player Don Stone. This weekend sure has taken
a toll on him.
Stone, known as "pooch" or "hound-dog" by his teammates, is howling
over his poor perfomance. But not his performance on the ice.
In fact, Stone scored a goal Saturday against Miami-Ohio in Michigan's
win. However, Stone did not fare as well in his Griddes picks, causingahis
youthful look to decay. "When you go out and play with the desire and
lustfullness for victory that I do when I play Griddes each week, I guess
you can understand why I look so feeble now," Stone said. "I did horrible."
Stone and Cubs manager Don Zimmer each picked only two games
correct according to sources close to the Griddes headquarters.
However, for Stone and all other Griddes hopefuls, you have a second
chance. Turn in the copy of games by Friday at 5 p.m. at the Michigan
Daily, located at 420 Maynard, and you could win dinner or lunch for two
at O'Sullivans Eatery and Pub.

The women's cross country team has been
doing just what they said they would this year.
According to the team's motto they're
"climbing to the top" this season and they
continued that climb with an impressive victory
at the Michigan Intercollegiate Championships
A field of eight college teams from
Michigan showed up at the University of
Michigan golf course only to watch the
Wolverines, once again led by senior Mindy
Rowand, dash away with the invitational crown.
Rowand finished second individually in 18
minutes, 15 seconds to help Michigan total 40
points, outdistancing second-place Michigan
State by 14 points.
"The team ran pretty well. Mindy was a
little disappointed that she didn't win. I think
she just went out a little too hard at the start,"
As has been the case all year, Rowand
received lots of support from her teammates.
Junior Karen Welke (18:49 - 5th place), senior
Jennifer McPeck (18:51 - 6th place), and first-
year runner Molly McClimmon (18:58 - 8th
place) all finished in the top 10 on Saturday.
"Those three had great races for us. Jennifer
had another strong finish. She kicked by a
couple of runners at the finish again. Molly had
a sore knee this week in practice, but she had an
excellent race as well," Foster said.
Those four have been a consistent bunch for
the Wolverines. Together they have helped
bring home three invitational titles along with
one second and one third place finish this fall.
Rowand has finished in the top five every time
she has raced and last week she was pushed at
the finish line by Welke, her own teammate.
McPeck has provided fiery leadership along with
her fast meet times and McClimmon, the
rookie, has provided invaluable support as well.
Other Wolverine finishers included Amy
Bannister at 19:50, Colleen Yuhn at 19:58 and
Megan Nortz at 20:12. They finished, 19th,
22nd and 25th, respectively.
According to Foster, the runner's times were
slower this weekend as a result of the tough
course layout. She added that McPeck's finish
was "super" considering the final stretch was a
steep hill to the finish line.
While times were slower on the home
course, the team has been steadily improving its
performance throughout the season.
"Times have definitely come down. Last
weekend we had a couple of season bests at
Michigan State. Now, for the next couple of
weeks, we're going to concentrate on more
speed training to get ready for Big Ten's,"
Oct. 28 is the date the runners are eyeing
now. The Big Ten Championships in Madison,
Wisconsin, will be a very competitive meet.
Indiana finished sixth in the nation last year and
return four of their top five runners. According
to Foster, Michigan along with Iowa will
challenge the Hoosiers for the title. McPeck is
looking for another win.
"We've got enough talent. We really want to
do better in the Big Ten's this time. I think this
is our year."
