The Michigan Dolly.

The state of Arizona, home to
perennial favorites such as Barry
Goldwater, blue tortilla chips and
Bill Frieder, proved not to be such a
familiar place to the women's golf
team last weekend.
The Wolverines finished eighth
in a nine team field at the Hawkeye
Rio Rico Invitational in Nogales,
Arizona. Nebraska won the invita-
tional with a score of 925, while
Michigan finished with 992.
"We had some good scores and
some bad scores," coach Sue
LeClaire said, "but the girls should
have done better."
Mary Hartman recorded the
team's low score with a 75, but the
other golfers did not fare as well.
Even the weather proved
disappointing. "We thought we'd go
out to 75-85 temperatures," LeClaire
said. "But on Saturday afternoon it
got quite cold and windy and we had
to play in our rain~ gear."
It was obvious to LeClaire that
the problem was not in the players'
physical ability, but in their mental
attitude."Their concentration level
was low and that is why they did not
do well," said LeClaire
The golfers will have a chance to
redeem themselves this weekend
when they travel to Bloomington,
Indiana. There, they will compete in
an invitational where five out of the
twelve teams will be from the Big
Coach LeClaire remains con-
vinced that mental focus will be the
key to her team's success. "Indiana
and Ohio State will be tough,"
LeClaire claimed, "but our problem
is getting the girls' concentration
level up. They've got their golf
game and golf swing, now it's just a
matter of getting their confidence and

The Michigan baseball team (13-
11) bounced back after three straight
losses to beat Central Michigan (9-
7) yesterday afternoon, 5-2, in Mt.
"We haven't had too many easy
wins," Michigan coach Bill Freehan
said. "This is the first time we've
played them in a long time. We were
the most talented team."
The combination of a two day
layoff due to inclement weather gave
Freehan a chance to showcase his
top four starting pitchers, each of
whom threw for two innings. Five
Michigan pitchers in all made
Michigan spread out their scor-
ing, due mostly to the hitting of
sophomore Steve Buerkel who drove
in the first three Michigan runs.
Buerkel went 2-4 in the contest.
Buerkel began the first inning
with his first homer of the season.
The Chippewas struck back in the
bottom of the inning with a
homerun by Matt Bauer off of
Wolverine starter Russell Brock.
That was the only run Brock
allowed before first-year player
Dennis Konuszewski took over the
mound. The nighthander picked up
his first win (1-1) of the season after
Michigan took the lead in the third
Buerkel knocked home the second
Wolverine run after he slapped a
single after Freehan signaled for a
The centerfielder struck again in
the fifth inning, when he drove itt
his third run on a fielder's choice to
put Michigan up 3-1.
Central Michigan could not get:
lBuerkel out in the eighth as h
reached base on a Chippewa error:.
EHe reached third on a Tim Flannelly
isingle. The base hit extended
iFlannelly's hitting streak to 22
games. The sophomore leads the
team with a batting average of .386
Buerkel then scored after Andy
Fairman hit into a double play. -
The final Wolverine run came in
the ninth, when catcher Todd
Winston knocked in co-captain Phil
Kirt Ojala and Jason Pfaff
followed Konuszewski in the pitch-
ing rotation. Todd Marion finished
the game in the ninth, picking uO
his fifth save of the season.

The Michigan softball team was
scheduled to play the University of
Detroit yesterday but the game was
called on account of rain. Sort of.
Actually, yesterday's game was
originally scheduled to be played in
Detroit at the U of D campus but
Tuesday's weather conditions ren-
dered the field unplayable and forced
the Titans to move the game to Ann
All the makings for a beautiful
day of softball were present: sunny
skies and warm temperatures. How-
ever one major ingredient was
missing - the Titans. Detroit failed
to field a team to compete against
the Wolverines for yesterday's sche-
duled double header.
Captain Jenny Allard was
disappointed by the no show, "It's
too bad we couldn't play but they
didn't have enough people for a
Michigan needed to play U of D
in order to play themselves out of
pre-season sub par performances that
have left the Wolverines with a less
than celebrated start.
The team was hoping to gain a
good deal of momentum by
sweeping the doubleheader before
going into their first Big Ten
matchup. Michigan will face Min-
nesota this Friday and Saturday.
Unfortunately for the Wolverines
they will go into the most important
part of the season on a full week
layoff. Coach Carol Hutchins was
hoping that the games against De-
troit would give her team an
opportunity to get some solid com-
petition in before a big game like
Michigan's record against the U
of D Titans is an impressive 18-3
The Wolverines must now hope
the layoff does not effect their
conference performance. Michigan's
record against the Golden Gophers is
tied at an even 14-14. The team
hopes to widen that margin during
the weekend competition.
