EAST LANSING - The worst fears of
Michigan field hockey coach Patti Smith became
reality this weekend as the stickers lost their final
two games to Northwestern and Michigan State.
The six Wolverine seniors who played their last
games for Michigan did so in a losing cause.
The losses dropped the team's record to 9-9-2
overall, 3-7-0 in the Midwest Collegiate Field
Hockey Conference.
Against Michigan State, Kristin Shaiper
scored 7:29 into the game off a sharp pass from
Sharon Cantor. The Wolverines took that narrow
lead into halftime, but they knew it wouldn't be
enough.
"I told them at halftime that as far as I was
concerned, it was scoreless," said head coach Patti
Smith. "I thought we needed to score in the first
ten minute of the second half."
Instead, Spartan forward Carey Grealy bounced
a shot past Michigan goalkeeper Joanne Green
8:02 into the second half. The goal not only tied
the game, but appeared to give Michigan State an
emotional lift.
This new source of life was particularly
evident on offense. The Wolverines failed to
control the ball as effectively as they did in the
first half.

Green's pads and found the mark with 22:30
remaining in the game.
The goal was particularly ironic. Hogan, a
first-year player from Cheshire High School in
Connecticut, scored the game-winner to spoil the
career finales of Cantor and teammate Judy
Burinskas, who are from Cheshire as well.
There was still plenty of time for a comeback,
but the Wolverines could not convert their
opportunities, which may have had something to
do with the playing surface.
"The grass really negated our scoring off
corners, and I think we let it get to us mentally,"
Smith said.
Sophomore Brigid Kiley drove the last nail
into the Wolverines' coffin by scoring another
goal off a rebound with 11:10 to go.

it's not a true shot."
The usual amount of physical play which is
present in this rivalry was heightened by this*
game being the last of the season.
"Both teams played hard," said Smith. "We
sat back a little in the second half, and it hurl
us."
The second half was not the problem against
Northwestern Saturday. The Wildcats had a two-
goal lead before the game was ten minutes old.
Senior Sue Novack and junior Natalie Beckerman
did the honors for the Wildcats.
Junior Tamara Neuhausel tacked on another t
goal with 7:20 left in the half. Beckerman6
accounted for the only goal of the second half
with her second of the game. The Wolverines few,
opportunities were turned away by All-.
Conference goalkeeper Kim Metcalf.
"Northwestern overwhelmed us," Smith stated,
bluntly.
In evaluating the season, Smith was pleased
with her team's overall performance, but she is
looking toward a brighter future for the Michigan
field hockey program.
"(The season) was successful in a lot of6
ways," she said. "I think we had more discipline,
and more mental focus. I also think we were in,
better physical shape than last season.
"We failed to accomplish some of the goals I
set before the season. Those will become goals
for next season, though."

Stand-out performances by
individuals certainly add excitement
to a game or match. But they
usually don't create a winning
season. A strong overall team
contribution does. This is what led
the Michigan women's swimming
team to a win in Iowa last weekend.
The Wolverine squad crushed the
competition in the two day
invitational, finishing with a thirty
point lead over second place
Nebraska. Host Iowa and BYU were
left far behind in the Wolverine's
wake.
"We just got off the bus, walked
in after an eight hour bus ride, and
swamn a very, very strong meet,"
Michigan coach Jim Richardson
said.
Michigan took several firsts, but
team depth proved to be the biggest
reason for their command of the
competition.
"From the onset of the meet,
Michigan took control," Iowa coach
Dr. Peter Kennedy said. "They
(Michigan) had no divers so we
were ahead for awhile, but once the
swimming started they jumped in
and dominated."
Michigan set the pace by taking
the initial event, the 200-meter
medley relay. Mindy Gehrs snatched
the 200 butterfly supported by a
strong third by Missy McCracken.
Michelle Swix and Kathy
Deibler placed second and third
respectively in the 100 freestyle.
Backed by a fourth-place finish by
Stefanie Liebner, Lisa Anderson
captured the the 200 backstroke.
Jennifer Eck challenged her
teammate, NCAA qualifier Ann
Colloton, in the 100 breaststroke.
Colloton just out-touched Eck for
the winning finish. Colloton also
claimed victory in the 200
breaststroke event.
Despite the Wolverine's final
dominance, last year's Big Eight
Champion Nebraska applied some
pressure. Unlike Michigan, Iowa,
and BYU, the Cornhuskers had a
slight advantage.
"Nebraska looked really rested,"
explained Iowa's coach Kennedy.
"They produced a lot of close
races.
"It looks like a real good year
for Michigan. Jim's doing another
great job this year," he concluded.
"If they develop a closeness they
will be a very good team."

One of a coach's biggest challenges comes in
preparing athletes for competitive action. It happens in
baseball's spring training. It happens in football's
preseason. It is also a concern in swimming, as
Michigan's men's swimming coach Jon Urbanchek
knows very well.
lie addressed this problem Friday night with the
annual Maize and Blue intrasquad meet at the Canham
Natatorium.
"(This meet) gives us a chance to measure where we
are following six weeks of training," Urbanchek said.
The mood at the intrasquad meets are generally upbeat,
he said, because "the only place to go from here is up."
That sentiment was also shown by the swimmers
themselves. This was especially evident in the 200-yard
breaststroke. The only two in the heat, junior Mike
Barrowman and sophomore Eric Wunderlich, managed
to use all eight lanes of the pool in making their swim.
After the race, Barrowman was heard to have shouted
out, "Hey, you guys gave us the whole pool!"
Although times in the intrasquad meet were far from
midseason form, coach Urbanchek was impressed with
several performances. Particular attention was given to
the first-year swimmers in order to see how they would

react under competitive circumstances. Steve Bigelow, a
rookie from Ft. Wayne, Indiana, won the 100
backstroke with a time of 51.98 seconds.
"Bigelow was impressive," Urbanchek said. "Brian
Gunn also gave an excellent effort out there."
Gunn won both the 100 and 200 butterfly events in
times of 51.17 and 1:52.98, respectively. While
attending high school in Hinsdale, Illinois, Gunn
finished sixth at the U.S. Olympic trials in the 200-
meter butterfly.
Senior co-captain Brent Lang, NCAA champion in
the 50-yard freestyle, continued to look good in that
event, winning in a time of 20.98. Lang dominated the
freestyle heats in Friday's meet, also winning the 100
and 200 events. I
Sophomore Eric Namesnik gave a strong
performance in one of the more difficult events, the 200
individual medley. Namesnik won the event in a field of
eight with a time of 1:52.86.
After two and a half months of preparation, the
swim team begins its regular season against Wisconsin
Friday. They then travel to Evanston Saturday to swim
against Northwestern. The team opens its home
schedule on Wednesday, November 15, when they will
host Oakland University at 7 p.m.

Five Years Ago:
November 12. 1984
Lou Holtz glared hard at the man
with the big microphone, looked
down and unleashed a mouthful of
saliva on to the cement floor. The
small interview room froze in
deadly silence. A few spasms of
nervous laughter could be heed.
Holtz, whose team had just
dropped a 31-7 decision to
Michigan, was obviously displeased
about something. The man with the
mike cautiously repeated his

question.
"Are you tired of people of
expecting you to be the savior of
Minnesota football?"
Holtz responded slowly.
"There's only been one Messiah and
he hasn't come back yet," he said.
This time the laughs came heartily
as is custo-mary in a Lou Holtz
press conference. But Holtz's
humor could not veil his disgust in
seeing Michigan keeping the Little
Brown Jug in a runaway victory.

In a dull, boring game, almost
as flat and featureless as the central
Illinois landscape, Michigan
massacred the Fighting Illini 57-0.
It was Michigan's first white-
wash of the season and marked the
worst drubbing either school has
received in this long and fabled
rivalry that dates back to 1898.
The win, coupled with Indiana's
loss to Iowa, paved the way for
Michigan to clinch a birth to the
Rose Bowl.
