Fall seasons near conclusion
Field Hockey, Men's and Women's cross country finish year

by David Schechter
Daily Sports Contributor
When the team bus departs for
Columbus today, the Michigan field
hockey team will head into its final
week.
The Ohio State game emerges as
a must win game for the Wolverines
who hope to carry their seniors into
their first postseason tournament
ever.
Having defeated the Buckeyes last
month, Michigan has a slight edge
heading into tomorrow's game.
However, the team is still slightly
drained from this week's mid-terms
and last week's dramatic losses to
both Iowa and Northern Illinois.
Coach Patti Smith feels the team
can break through such an obstacle.
"It definitely took the wind out of
us, but the players want to do well
for the end of the season. The
finality of their career's coming to a
close will help them push for a final
effort."

MICHIGAN SPORTS
roundup

Backing Smith's claim, seniors
Ilene Meadows and Patti Farley
pledge a tooth and nail effort-this
weekend. "I'm definitely going to do
all I can.
But this weekend will be a little
easier than last." said Meadows.
The Buckeyes are a physically
strong team that traditionally plays
with great intesity on their home
field. Smith admits that if Michigan
holds their ground the team can
bring a win back to Ann Arbor.
A victory in Columbus, and wins
over Northwestern and Michigan

State next week, would grant
Michigan at least a review from the
NCAA in regards to a tournament
berth. However, losses to such
league powerhouses as Iowa and
Northern Illinois have wittled down
chances for such tournament play.
"Since we've never experienced
post-season play, it's not something
we're used to, or come to expect,"
said Michigan's Farley. "Still, it's
kind of upsetting to know it will all
be over soon."
Even if the team fails to make
the tournament, Farley is not

disheartened. "We'll (seniors) take
with us a strong feeling. We've
shown over the four years that we've
improved as a team."
Meadows admits the completion
of her field hockey days will come
almost as a surprise, "I hadn't really
paid much attention to it until
someone pointed it out to me a few
days ago. I said, 'Oh God, I didn't
really think about that."
These seniors hope to put the
overtime loss to Northern Illinois in
the past and focus on Ohio State.
Practices this week were constructive
and centered on stronger defensive
support. Last week the defense left
goalie Joanne Green unprotected
more than Smith wanted, creating
too many one on one situations.

During this weekend's games, the Michigan field hockey team hopes
that the play of first-year forward Katie Vignevic as well as others can
propel the Wolverines into their first post-season tournament ever.
Giants lose Reuschel for

Cross Country team chasing top division finish

game 4 with
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -
World Series game 3 is just a day
away and already the San Francisco
Giants, down 2-0 to Oakland, are in
more trouble. Rick Reuschel will
not be able to start the fourth game
because of a sore shoulder.
"We just have to wait and see.
It's a day-to-day thing," Giants ma-
nager Roger Craig said.

sore shoulder
Reuschel, hit hard in losing
Game 2, was tagged in the right
shoulder by a line drive in batting
practice Tuesday.
Don Robinson, one of several
San Francisco pitchers hurt this
season, will take Reuschel's place.
Robinson has not started since
September 25 because of a bad knee
and has pitched just 13 1/3 innings
since September 3.

The University of Michigan's men's cross
country team will compete in the Big Ten
Championships this Saturday in Madison,
Wisconsin. This meet, along with the upcoming
NCAA District race, are the two events towards
which the team has been training since the
beginning of the season.
The 8,000 meter race is roughly equivalent to
five miles. The relatively flat course has the
potential for fast times.
Because this is an important meet, the race
may end up being a tactical one. If this is the
case, then times would tend to be a little slower
than usual, as the runners would wait to see what

the others do before making their first move.
Because several of the older runners on the
squad are being red-shirted this year, the team is
very young. But this team, mostly freshmen and
sophomores, has matured this season.
First-year runner Sean Sweat from Monroe,
Michigan, has found himself at the front of the
team. Surpassing even his own expectations, he
has a personal record of 25:42 over the 8000M
distance, which he ran at the Michigan State
meet.
When assessing the team's chances at the Big
Ten meet, Sweat was realistic. "Because we have
a young team," he said," we are looking for a
respectable finish. If we run well, we'll have a
chance to finish third or fourth."

Sweat feels the main competition facing the
Wolverine harriers will come from Indiana, *
Illinois, and Wisconsin. The defending Big Ten
Champion Badgers, whose team also captured the
NCAA Championship last season, should be
particularly dangerous with the extra fan support
generated by having the race held in Madison.
The Wolverine runners have cut back on their
mileage as the Big Ten meet has approached and
emphasized faster, high quality speedwork.
This should lead each member of the team to
one of his fastest times of the season, as each
individual approaches his own individual peak. '
And for a young team, running fast times in a
meet with the importance of the Big Ten is an
excellent way to earn the respectability they
desire.

Rowand has Big Ten title hopes

by Steve Fraiberg
Daily Sports Contributor
Respect.
This Saturday the Michigan
woman's Cross Country team plans
to earn it when they travel to
Wisconsin for the Big Ten
Championships.
Mindy Rowand, team captain,
states, "I feel we defenitely have
something to prove. This year
Michigan is only ranked 21st and

Indiana is ranked seventh in the
nation. There is no way we are that
far behind Indiana." I
Coach Sue Foster adds, "The
team has finished third five times in
the past and it would be nice if we
could get out of this rut and win."
Iowa also has the potential to
finish anywhere in the top three.
However, they never seem to run
well in the big meets, according to
several Wolverines.

Whatever happens to the team's
hopes, Rowand could become the
Big Ten individual champion with a
strong performance.'Her main hurdle
will be last year's Big Ten champ,
Michelle Dekkers from Indiana.
"Dekkers goes out hard and I have
to decide if I am going to try to stay
with her, it depends how I feel that
day," Rowand said.
