First-year students at the
University of Michigan are usually
overwhelmed with an avalanche of
newfound responsibilities. Mindy
Rowand encountered all those usual
responsibilities plus one more that
was quite unexpected.
Rowand was abruptly thrust
into a starting role on the women's
cross country team soon after she
arrived in Ann Arbor. Serious in-
juries felled the top two runners,
forcing the rookie to the head of the
pack. She's been there ever since.
Rowand's athletic career at
Michigan has been a diary of
success. After she-endured the first-
year leadership pressures, her nat-
ural running talent began to shine
through. By the end of the season
she had firmly planted herself as the
team's leader, narrowly missing
All-Big Ten honors.
"I started off my sophomore
year a little slow," Rowand said.
"But as the season went on I kept
improving. It turned out great."
That greatness carried over to
her junior year when she led the
Wolverines to a seventh-place
showing at the NCAA Champion-
ships. Her fourth-place finish at
last year's Big Ten Championships
followed by a third-place finish at
the NCAA District IV meet
brought Rowand the national recog-
nition that her coach Sue Foster
knew she deserved.
"Mindy will be our team leader.
She is by far one of the best
runners in the nation," Foster said.
But the accolades don't seem to
bother Rowand at all.
"I feel good when I hear things
like that. It tells me that Sue has a
lot of faith and confidence in me,"
Rowand said. "I really don't feel
any pressure from that sort of
thing. I know she's behind me."
Rowand's confidence has helped
her deal with her leadership duties
on the team, while continuing to
concentrate on her own running.
"I don't really think about
'being a team leader' during the
race. It doesn't affect me when I'm

I have to remember my role,"
"She's our team captain," team-
mate Jennifer McPeck said. "Every-
body looks to Mindy for support.
She's always there and she's always
positive about everything."
"Everyone needs to know that
you'll be there," Rowand said.
"You also have to be setting a good
Obviously, being positive all
the time can be pretty hard to do, a
problem Rowand faced early this
fall. Her lofty goals and plans for
the season were put on hold by a
hip and groin injuries.
"At the beginning of the season,
I was really getting down on my-
self. Now, I've got things turned
around and everything is clicking,"
Rowand and the rest of the team
have much to be excited about.
With three invitational' victories
under its belt, the team is heading
into the most meaningful part of
its schedule. The Big Ten Champ-
ionships are coming up this Sat-
urday to be followed by the NCAA
district meet and hopefully a berth
in the national championships.
"Actually I try not to even think
about (the schedule) at all. It helps
to just keep your mind off things,
otherwise you expend too much
energy," Rowand said. "About the
day before, you start to think about
it. And when the toe is on the line
it's scary. But when the gun goes
off and the race starts everything
sort of falls in place."
did I shot it."
Brown also said Michigan's
forechecking led to the scoring
chances responsible for the
Wolverine victory. "We were
checking them well and that opened
up a lot of room around the net," he
Center Darryl Noren, who scored
all four of the Flame's goals Friday
night, was UIC's only bright spot.
But Belmonte was pleased with
the fewer mental mistakes and
better coverage his team displayed
on Saturday. DePinto, the Flames'
Co-MVP last year, was able to
rebound and hold Michigan score-
less until Copeland's shot. In
addition to Copeland, both DePinto
and Sharples were the heroes of
"I relaxed a little more and tried
not to do anything out of
character," DePinto said.
For his part, Sharples turned
away all 27 Flames' shots for his
first shutout since a 9-0 victory
over Ferris State early last season.
He was at his best during the
second period where he made 13
saves and gave Michigan a chance
to win the game going into the
"I can't let factors outside of my
control effect me," Sharples said. "I
try to play the same whether it's
10-0 or 0-0."
