Late arrival hurts
'women's golf team
by Maria Kupillas
Daily Sports Contributor
The women's golf team came home from a two-day invitational at
Northern Illinois with a second place finish, behind Northern Illinois, but
ahead of Kansas State.
After the invitational, coach Sue LeClaire said that she felt, "This was
a tournament we should have won." According to LeClaire, the problem
was, "...we got there too late to see the back nine of the golf course so,
the girls were shooting blind for the last nine holes."
The team average for the lady linksters was 82.7. Becky Hayes, Erica
Zonder and Wendy Bigler all shot a two day total of 166. Christen
Beilstein and Darcy Chandler both shot 169 and Mary Hartman shot a
177.
As for the rest of the field, Southwest Missouri placed fourth,
Northern Iowa placed fifth and Ferris State placed sixth.
The Northern Illinois Invitational was the last tournament of the year
for the lady linksters. They finished the season with a team average of
82.1. Looking back on the season coach LeClaire said, "(It) was much
improved over past seasons... very much so."
Lacrosse finishes first

In a come-from-behind, overtime victory, the Michigan lacrosse club
defeated Bowling Green, its second victory of the tournament, to capture
first place at Bowling Green University Sunday. The Wolverines finished
the tournament undefeated, St. Bonaventure was second with one win and
one loss, and Bowling Green came in third with two losses.
Michigan played their first game against St. Bonaventure, a varsity
team, and won easily, 5-3. The second game, however, proved to be more
of a challenge.
The Wolverines had to play the back-to-back games and trailed 5-3
with six minutes left in the second game against Bowling Green. But by
the end of regulation time, they had pulled even and won the game in
overtime, 6-5.
Coach Bob DiGiovanni said that the victory "showed that this team
has real character and is in very good condition."
The leading scorer for the Wolverines was senior attackman Mike
Kennedy who totalled four attack points on 2 goals and 2 assists.
Attackmen Marc Silbergeld and Ed Hanos, and midfielder Rich Belanders
also scored two goals apiece.
On the defensive end, sophomore goalie Peter McPartlin played a solid
game totalling 10 saves, some of which proved to be crucial in overtime.
The lacrosse club will put their 3-0 record to test again Friday at 7:30
at Tartan Turf when they take on the Toledo Rockets. "Toledo is not
traditionally a strong club," said DiGiovanni. "It should give us a chance
to play a lot of players and to get a good idea of who will play in the
spring."
Soccer team victorious
by Dan Zoch
Daily Sports Contributor
The Michigan women's soccer team won two road games on Sunday at
Ohio State in back-to-back victories against Miami of Ohio and Ohio
State to bring their record up to 7-5.
The Miami Redskins fell first, getting shut out 4-0. Ohio State lost,
4-2, two hours later to a Michigan squad that had only a half-hour's rest
between games.
First-year midfielder Molly Douma led the Wolverines in the opener
with two goals and an assist. Senior Heidi Siffert and first-year midfielder
} Jenny Steinhebel also contributed goals.
Steinhebel's goal was a rocket from twenty yards out and increased the
score to 3-0, sealing the victory.
Michigan's victory dropped Miami of Ohio's record to 6-4.
After winning the first game, the team was only given a half-hour
before going up against a consistently powerful Buckeye squad. However,
fatigue wasn't a factor as the Wolverines handled the Buckeyes, 4-2.
"We really had to adjust our game from ball control to overlapping and
using through balls," said team captain Amy Stock of the transition from

playing Miami to the tougher Ohio State. "The team was hustling and we
dominated the passing game. We were really psyched."
Seiffert scored in the opening moments of the first half on an assist
from Lori Green to give the Wolverines an early lead. Green led the team
in scoring with back-to-back goals in the second half.
"Lori came back with a quick retaliation after the first goal. That put
us back in the lead," said Stock, who fired in the final goal of the game,
herself, on a free kick late in the second half.
The women's soccer team plays another game on the road Wednesday
against Oakland University and this Saturday is their final home game
against the dominant Indiana University squad.

Grant out; Taylor to start?

by Steve Blonder
Daily Football Writer
One is in and another is out. At
least that's what Michigan football
coach Bo Schembechler had to say
about a couple of fifth-year seniors.
Defensive captain J.J. Grant will
not play against Iowa, after
undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery
yesterday afternoon. Grant injured
the knee during the last series of the
Michigan State game, and the extent
of his injuries are not known.
"(Losing Grant) hurts a lot,"
Schembechler said. "He's a leader on
defense, a great linebacker. Whenever
you take a linebacker of that caliber
out of your defense you lose a lot."
Erick Anderson will call the
defensive signals, a role which he
has filled in the past when Grant has
been injured.
Expected to return to the
Wolverine lineup this weekend is
quarterback Michael Taylor, who has
not played a down since being
injured in the season-opener. Taylor
returned to practice last week, but
Schembechler chose not use him
against the Spartans unless the
Wolverines fell behind.
But he was coy when asked
whether Taylor would start.
"I didn't say that," Schembechler
said. "I just said we need to get him
in there. We might do that (start
Taylor), we might not. We might
play both of them, we might not.
"We just don't know what we're
going to do yet."

When asked on what basis he
would decide, Schembechler said,
"Just whatever moves me."
But for Elvis Grbac, the redshirt
frosh who has led Michigan to four
straight victories, the "no decision"
is unsettling.
"With him back, it's kind of
weird. You don't know who's going
to start," Grbac said. "I think it will
probably go back to him. If they let
me keep on playing, I'll do the best
that I can."
Grbac has completed 69.4 percent
of his passes, hitting 64 of 102 for
694 yards and six TDs.
Taylor started nine games last
season before he broke his
collarbone. As a starter, he led the
Big Ten in passing efficiency.
One group that could stand some
improvement, according to
Schembechler is the officiating. He
was particularly incensed about a
personal foul called against wide
receiver Derrick Alexander and a
holding call against Derrick Walker.
"They had absolutely no business
throwing that flag on Alexander,"
Schembechler said. "That was a
disgrae.
"Those guys don't know what the
hell they're doing. They have noth-
ing to do with the game... They like
to let you know their triviality...
They miss the whole point.
"The game is so complex today
and so fast. This game passed them
by. They can't keep up."

Michigan volleyball team
comes up short on positives

by Jeff Sheran
Daily Sports Writer
EVANSTON - Last weekend I got a chance
to see yet another episode in the long, unending
saga of the Michigan volleyball team when they
took their show on the road.
But before I go any further, I would like to
make one thing perfectly clear: I really, really
looked for positive aspects to talk about.
Let's get these positive aspects out of the way
first.
During a few moments in the match, the team
exhibited character, like when it battled back
from a seven point deficit and tied a game at 16-
16.
That having been accomplished, let's move
on.
Two things about the team are painfully evid-
ent: they lose, and they make their losing inevit-
able by taking themselves out of the match from
the start. The Washington Generals - the Har-
lem Globetrotters' perennial doormats - might
want to take a page out the Wolverine playbook.
This past weekend's performance provides
ample proof. Michigan (0-7 in the Big Ten) was
"bad," a mild description offered by coach Joyce

Davis. She was referring to her squad's 4-15, 7-
15, 2-15 loss to a mediocre Wisconsin team.
Michigan totalled 13 points in the three-game
match, not enough to win a single game if the
Badgers vacated the arena. The point, however, is
that the Wolverines provided themselves with
virtually no opportunity to win from the opening
serve.
They performed similarly last Tuesday, when
Western Michigan took a 10-0 lead in Game 1.
In a repeat performance of its previous
drubbings, the Wolverines spotted Northwestern
headstarts of 7-0, 8-1, and 7-0, respectively, in
each of the three games they lost to the Wildcats.
Michigan can and will not win if it continues
to start playing each game ten minutes after its
opponent does. If this were a ping pong match,
the Wolverines would have been eliminated by
the 7-0 shutout rule.
Davis rationalized the team's woes. "Anytime
a team hasn't won in a couple of weeks, your
confidence is going to start to wander."
At last report, the team's confidence was
spotted in Idaho.
Such performances represent a complete lack
of discipline on the Michigan squad. The players

start to compete when they feel like it, and that
is inexcusable.
What is even more inexcusable is that the
coaching staff allows it to happen.
"We have problems between the players and
coaching," said assistant coach Youde Wang.
Surprise, surprise.
There is no doubt that both coaches and
players have bekl lax in executing their jobs
well, but a rift Ixtween the two factions is not
what the team needs right now. It needs wins.
When asked whether or not Davis has been
steering the team in the right direction despite the
0-7 record, first-year standout Hayley Lorenzen
responded, "I think she is coaching us the best
way she knows how."
Simply because a team is at a disadvantage in
talent does not relegate it to a winless record.
Outstanding coaching can motivate a team to
Cinderella status, as seen throughout the history
of athletics. But apparently this is not the case
with Michigan.
Frankly, the players need to recognize that
they may have to assume more of the burden of
improvement than they would normally, because
the proper leadership is not coming from above.
