The Eastern Michigan mainten-
ance crew had a long night last night
repairing all the lights that Michigan
team captain Carol Szczechowski
shot out in the Wolverines 78-62
victory over the Hurons.
Szczechowski scored a career-high
34 points and set a Michigan
women's record for free throws
attempted (20), and free throws made
(18). She also sank 16 consecutive
free throws.
"It was really a relief to me
because I had been struggling with
my free throws and my game,"
Szczechowski said. The captain at-
tributed her scoring barrage to pat-
ience - something that wore thin
with Hurons' coach Cheryl Getz.
"We just couldn't stop her
tonight," Getz said. "She played an
outstanding game. We didn't do that
much wrong, she did it all right."
The Hurons used the same full
and half court presses that gave
Michigan so much trouble in the
last few games but they had no luck
with it. "Eastern played a very
physical game against us, and that
was something we expected," said
Michigan coach Bud VanDeWege.
The Wolverines responded to
Eastern's pressure defense with
controlled ball handling and quick-
ness at the guard position. Sopho-
more guard Stacie McCall used her
speed to break down the Hurons.
"Things worked well when we
pushed the ball up," said McCall.
And while McCall used speed,
Szczechowski used patience. Cutting
down on turnovers, Szczechowski
dictated a patient passing game-
waiting for the right shot. "We have
faced more difficult presses at
Central and Bowling Green. We've
learned how to handle it a lot better,"
Szczechowski said.
After trailing the Hurons by one
point at half time 31-30, the
Wolverines caught fire in the second
half. After ten minutes of play in the

period, Michigan ran up a 15 point
lead behind the shooting of
Szczechowski and junior guard Char
Durand.
But the Wolverine lead began to
dwindle as Huron guard Shani
LeBaron poured in nine of her 20
points. After Eastern called its final
time out with two minutes
remaining, Michigan took control,
eventually running its lead to
sixteen.
The Wolverines displayed a strict
interior defense last night that
featured frosh forward LaTara Jones.
"She has a great physical presence
and I was absolutely thrilled with her
play," VanDeWege said. Jones led
the Wolverines with nine boards,
five of which were offensive.
Sophomore center Trish Andrew
made an obvious defensive contri-

bution chalking up eight blocked
shots.
The Wolverines had difficulty
sparking an inside offensive game
though. Forwards Trish Andrew and
Michelle Hall didn't get the ball as
much as they usually do; punctuat-
ing Michigan's ineffective inside
play.
Michigan relied on guard
shooting for most of the game.
Junior guard Leah Wooldridge nailed
two three pointers and totaled 12
points, second in scoring behind
Szczechowski.
OVER THE HOLIDAYS: The
Wolverines play four games over the
next three and a half weeks. Coach
Bud VanDeWege will be serving up
matches against the University of
Toledo, University of Wisconsin-
Milwaukee, Michigan State, and

Fencers expect fun weekend

LaSalle University for the holiday.
But first there are the holiday
preparations.
"We need to use the time betweej
Eastern and Toledo to retool a little,
bit. There are some things we have
to do differently. You're definitely
going to see a different team from
the Eastern game to Toledd.
Hopefully that team will be better
prepared for Toledo, LaSalle, and
Michigan State. They're all very
good teams
Unfortunately for Michigah
State, sophomore forward Annette
Babers is out of the line-up for
while, and on the injured reserved
list. Babers who made her mark on
the basketball world after leading the
North squad in scoring at the 1990
U.S. Olympic Festival, was a big
part of the Spartan offense.

While participating in inter-
collegiate sports consists of a lot of
hard work, there can also be many
enjoyable moments for a team
during a season. The Michigan
fencing club expects this weekend's
Michigan Invitation to be one of
those times.
"This tournament is strictly for
fun," explained senior fencer Philip
Issa. "It's not a high pressure
tournament. It does not effect a
person's ranking, individually or
collegiately."
The invitational, held at the
University of Michigan at Dearborn,
is a two day event. On one day, the
fencers will duel individually and the
other day the fencers will compete in
a three-on-three team event. The
three divisions, sabre, foil and epee,
each makes its own decision as to
which day it will hold the individual
or team event.
The meet is open to any fencer in
the state, regardless of rank. Because

of the tournament's relaxed atmos-
phere, many high caliber fencers
enjoy competing in this meet and are
expected to attend both Saturday and
Sunday's sessions. The structure of
the invitational also allows all of the
fencers to duel everyone within their
division.
"It's a good tournament because
you might be fencing against people
who are nationally ranked, which is
something not everyone gets a
chance to do unless they make it to
the higher rounds of other tourn-
aments," Issa said.
With final exams approaching,
only a few of Michigan's fencers
will be heading to Dearborn this
weekend. The flexible nature of the
meet allows a team or individual to
register as late as Saturday morning
-- many of the Wolverines will not
make their final decision about
attending the tournament until the
end of this week.
For now, Issa will compete in
the foil, and Russ Turner and Nik

Weber will duel in the sabre for the
men. None of the women committed
yet to duel this weekend.
Joining current team members in
the meet this weekend will be the
coach, Evo Wenzler, a former world-
class fencer in the foil. However, he
is expected to compete in the sabre
this weekend. He, along with Turner
and Weber, will comprise a team for
the sabre team event.
After this tournament, the
fencing club takes some time off
during the holidays. It will resume
practice the second week of classes.
Club members are expected to train
and keep in shape on their own
during the vacation. The collegiate
season picks up in January,
providing the Wolverines with
strong incentive to work hard during
break.
But for Michigan this weekend,
thoughts of hard work will be set
aside as the fencers' true reason for
competing will stand out: because
they enjoy fencing.
