ROWAND AND VICTOR QUALIFY FOR NCAA's
Women's track runs well on road
by Annemarie Schultz
The Michigan Women's track
team made a strong showing this
past weekend when they traveled to
the Raleigh Relays, hosted by North
Although the weather was cloudy
and rainy, Michigan still ran very
well. "The weather wasn't totally
conducive for running, but it was
ideal for us," coach James Henry
One of the more outstanding
performances came from frosh Julie
Victor, who won the discus by
throwing 162 feet, 2 inches making
her a qualifier for the NCAA
Outdoor Nationals. She also man-
aged to place second in the shotput
with a personal best throw of
Another first place finisher was
senior Mindy Rowand. She achieved
the provisional NCAA qualifying
standard by completing the 3000
meters in 9 minutes, 20.6 seconds,
the fastest she-has run during the
outdoor season and her second fastest
Molly McClimon placed fifth in
the 1500 meters with a time of
4:57.5. She was also a provisional
Megan Nortz also ran
impressively, finishing the 1500
meters in 4:36.7 and placing ninth.
Nortz and McClimon were part
of the 2-mile relay team, along with
Chris Tyler and Amy McCormick,
that placed third with a time of 9:57.
The 4 x 200 meter relay team
finished eighth overall. The team
was composed of Alison Smith,
Michelle Bishop and Jennifer Reed
and Dyan Jenkins, who competed
with the team as a result of another
runner's injury. "Someone got hurt,
so I went out and ran it as an anchor
and did what was expected of me."
"This was a judgment meet for
us," Jenkins said. "It was nice to see
everyone do well at our first meet,
since we didn't run at St. Louis."
The meet in St. Louis was cancelled
due to snow last weekend. "I was
pretty impressed with what came out
of it. We seem very team oriented."

came out of it. We

A surprise athlete this season
appears to be Lisa Adams, -a first
year runner from St. Louis, Michi-
gan. She competed in the 400 meter
hurdles, finishing with a time of
63.2 seconds, a much better time
than her previous performances.
"She looks like she's going to
substantially improve," coach James
Michigan State's Miller
wins best player award
by Peter Zellen
Daily Hockey Writer
DETROIT - As expected, Michigan State's Kip Miller was announced
the winner of the Hobey Baker Award as the outstanding collegiate hockey
player of the 1989-90 season. The senior center led the nation in scoring
with 48 goals and 53 assists for a total of 101 points in leading the
Spartans to the CCHA title.
"It's a great feeling of accomplishment and it's a great honor to b
given this award," Miller said.
He was also quick to dole out praise towards others in his winning the
trophy. "I want to thank my coach (Ron Mason) for letting me play my
game and my lineinates Pat Murray and Dwayne Norris for playing well,"
Miller said. "It's great to have a team like Michigan State around you."
Miller, who was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques, won the award over
nine other nominees including Bowling Green's Rob Blake and Nelson
SURPRISE, SURPRISE: One of the more amusing moments at the
championship game was when, during the post-game interviews, a reporter
asked Wisconsin's Chris Tancill, a Livonia native, how he felt about
winning the championship MVP award.
Tancill, who scored a power play goal in yesterday's game, replied
When the reporter repeated the statement the senior right winger
continued to look bewildered and, looking down at the table, said in modest
embarrassment, "Oh, I didn't know. Really. This is awesome!"
Goalie Duane Derkson proceeded to pour a celebratory Coke on Tancill
in reward for his performance while everyone laughed at Tancill's
"Tell you what. I really can't accept the award by myself," Tancill said.
"The MVP was the team. Everybody performed well all year."
FOOT IN MOUTH AWARD: For comments made during the
tournament, coaches Jack Parker of Boston University and Shawn Walsh of
the University of Maine were publicly reprimanded and will be suspended
for the first game of the next NCAA championships in which either coach
Parker had a confrontation with an official after Boston University's
March 23 loss to Michigan State in the second round.
Walsh was suspended for comments made about the officiating in
Maine's March 23 loss against Wisconsin in the second round as well.
NCAA committee member Bruce McLeod was angered by the behavior
of the two coaches and felt that the punishments were just. "These two
incidents were blatant acts of misconduct and detracted from the
championship. These sanctions will send a strong message that the NCAA
will not tolerate any type of unprofessional behavior in the future."
THE DRIVE FOR FIVE: This was Wisconsin's second national
championship under coach Jeff Sauer's eight years and its fifth in 21 years;
Sauer coached them to a title in 1983 but the Badgers have also won in
1973, 1977, and 1981.
Henry said. "She will make her mark
(in the Big Ten) this year. Already
she's chomping at the bit, excited to

It didn't take Byce long to get
open again. Two minutes after his
first goal, he worked himself free on
a Colgate power play. As Byce came
flying down the ice, all that stood in
front of him was Red Raider goalie
Dave Gagnon. Byce won the duel to
give Wisconsin a 2-0 edge.
"After watching Colgate kill
penalties, I knew they were going to
let us move the puck around," Sauer
said. "If the ice held up we were

mark to give the Badgers a 3-1
advantage. The senior was named the
Most Valuable Player for the
"I can't accept that award by
myself," Tancill said. "I think the
MVP of any game this year has been
the team. I'm really excited. Man,
this is awesome."
Wisconsin goalie Duane Derksen
didn't have too tough a time
yesterday. The sophomore had to
make only 13 saves in the game, but
when he was tested, he came up with
the puck, including one spectacular
glove save in the second period.
Play was halted often through the
first two periods due to penalties.
The teams combined for 24 penalties
in thesfirst 40 minutes, 32 for the
"We took stupid penalties,"
Colgate coach Terry Slater said.
"There's no question about it. We
were taking penalty after penalty."

Junior Gregg Wolf scored his
first goal of the season at the 7:10
mark of the first period. That goal
by the Colgatedefenseman was the
difference in the Red Raiders
semifinal win over Boston
University (25-17-2) Friday.
The other factor in the win was
goaltender Dave Gagnon. The goalie
made 23 saves in the game to slow
the quick paced Terriers.
"Dave Gagnon came up very,
very big, especially in the third
period," Boston University coach
Jack Parker said. "We knew if we
were to win, we had to solve him
and we couldn't solve him. Gagnon
may be the best goaltender in the
nation.He is certainly the best in

The second semifinal game
Friday belonged to the Michigander
Tancill. The Badger rightwinger
provided both goals in the
"I think it's especially sweet that
Chris is from this town," Wisconsin
coach Jeff Sauer said. "To come in
and score the two goals to win the
game was a big thrill for him."
"Well, I think more than
anything I'm proud to be a member
of this team," Tancill said.
"Everybody has been talking about it
being a homecoming for me, but I
think the bottom line is we're just
happy to be here and it doesn't
matter where we are."
Barry Richter passed the puck to
Tancill in each period for both goals.
The Badgers werea much more
physical team, keeping Boston

The game also produced an
attendance record. There were 20,023
tickets sold and 16,595 people in the
arena. The previous high for a
women's championship game was
15,615 at Austin, Texas, in 1987.
The Stanford victory capped a
building project that coach Tara
VanDerveer began when she took the 9
job five years ago. Stanford was 13-
15 in her first season, 1985-86, but
improved each year thereafter and
finished 32-1 this season.
Henning finished with 21 points
to lead a balanced Stanford offense:
Steding scored 18 and Azzi, who is
from nearby Oak Ridge, Tenn., added
17. Azzi was named the outstanding
player of the Final Four.
Trisha Stevens contributed 16
points and 10 rebounds for the
Auburn, which lost to Louisiana
Tech in the 1988 title game and to
Tennessee last year, closed at 28-7.
Carolyn Jones led Auburn with 24
points, 16 in the first half.
Stanford overcame an eight
minute shooting drought and nine;
point deficit in the first half to get
control of the game early in the
*The Cardinal ended the first half
with a 9-0 run to tie the score at 41.
Then, with Auburn leading 46-43,
Steding nailed a three-pointer from
the left of the key to start a 9-0 run
that put Stanford ahead to stay.
Stanford went on to outscore
Auburn 22-7 over an eight-minute
stretch to open a 65-53 lead in *
Henning's jump shot with 10:13
left. Azzi's 3-pointer made it 70-57
with 7:54 left.
Auburn managed to cut the lead
to 70-64 on Linda Godby's baskot
with six minutes left but got no
closer. Henning and Steding
countered with back-to-back threes
pointers to return the lead to.12 and
Stanford was out of danger.
Stanford made 10 of 15 free
throws in the final 1:35, seven by
Henning, to stay on top.
