Mark Quimet (15) and Dave Roberts (9) were two first-year standouts on last year's hockey team that nearly gained an NCAA tournament berth.
Roberts was voted the CCHA Rookie-of-the-Year.

After completing a fourth
consecutive year of improvement,
the Michigan hockey team will need
to replace nine graduates in hopes of
continuing its movement towards
the top of the Central Collegiate
"This year has been a
culmination of four years of
improvement for these players,"
Michigan coach Red Berenson said.
"This class has been our nucleus,
but that's just college sports. You
have new leaders next year.
"I think we'll miss them, but
we'll make up for them."
Michigan finished in fourth place
(24-12-6), earning home-ice advan-
tage for the first time ever in CCHA
playoff competition last season.
However, its victory over Bowling
Green in the third-place consolation
game of the playoffs did not earn
Michigan its deserved NCCA bid.
"I just think we were shafted,"
Berenson said of the NCAA
selection committee's decision to
send Bowling Green to play Maine
in the first round.
The Wolverines defeated third-
seed Bowling Green, 5-4, and figured
this victory would send them to their

The committee's decision placed
an empty feeling to the end of a
successful campaign, but Michigan
will rely on some new and old blood
in the 1990-91 season.
Sophomore left winger David
Roberts, junior right winger Ted
Kramer and junior right winger
Denny Felsner will lead the Mich-
igan attack. Roberts garnered the
CCHA Rookie-of-the-Year last sea-
son tallying 21 goals and 32 assists.
He became the first Wolverine to
win the Doc Losh Trophy as
Michigan's scoring leader since the
award was established in 1978-79.
Roberts also was the first rookie
to lead Michigan in scoring since
Gary Butler in 1962-63. With a year
of experience under his belt, Roberts
should be more explosive.
Kramer netted 21 goals in his
second season and will provide the
scoring needed from the right side.
Felsner led the team with 27
goals despite missing a month due
to a knee injury. He tallied 30 goals
in his rookie season and should sur-
pass that total if he plays a full
Senior co-captain Don Stone will
also provide offense to the
Wolverine attack. The left winger
tallied 20 goals and 24 assists, but
the leadership he will supply to this
young team will be more important.
With only four seniors on this
year's team, Stone will be asked to
step into the role that the nine
seniors provided last season. Since
he was voted captain by his
teammates, the players feel he can
perform that role.
The other selection for captain
came as a surprise when the players
elected sophomore defenseman David
Harlock. Harlock proved to be rock-
steady on the point in his first
season, but for the team to vote him
captain shows that Harlock adds
more than just consistency.
"It's kind of the exception for a
sophomore to be voted captain,"
Berenson said, "but obviously the
team felt he deserved to be.
"He's not future captain material,
but captain material now."
Fellow sophomore and defensive
partner Patrick Neaton confirmed
"I think it's great. He's good in
the lockerroom and the team all gets
along with him," he said. "He might
seem quiet at times, but he usually
has things to say."
Neaton will also provide the blue
line with another steady defenseman.
He was named to the CCHA All-
Rookie Team after a fine first
campaign in which he added three
goals and 23 assists.
But the biggest area where
improvement is needed is between
the pipes. With the graduation of
Warren Sharples, Michigan will
look to junior Tim Keough and a
first-year netminder from Canada.
Sharples provided the Wolverines
with a solid goalie game in and
game out, and Michigan hopes
Shields or Keough find the same
Despite the loss of the seniors
from last season, the Michigan
hockey team can look forward to
another season of success, though it
may be a little harder than the past

Mindy Rowand made her last long distance kick as a Wolverine.
Alana Davis took one final lunge toward the tape. Dyan Jenkins received
the baton and Lisa DeVries cleared the bar, one final time.
The senior tri-captains of the Michigan women's track team made their
final drives in fulfilling their personal and team goals. Over the past four
years these four athletes, alongside fellow seniors Carol Boyd, Jennifer
McPeck, Sandra Elliot, Gillian Osborne and Chris Tyler have initiated a
turnaround in the women's track program.
Even prior to the Big Ten Championships in Champaign, IL and the
NCAA Championships in Durham, NC, the team had proven it could
compete on a national level, despite battling illness, injury, and weather
throughout part of the season.
The distance crew elevated its running throughout the season-
recording impressive times at the Dogwood Relays in Knoxville, TN and
at the Kansas Relays in Lawrence, KS..
Sophomore runner Molly McClimon made an immediate impact, and
junior Kim Haluscsak will be among the leaders in the distance this year.
However, the distance team didn't steal the spotlight. When the
Wolverine sprinters and hurdlers were healthy they were among the best in
the Big Ten, although the 4X100 relay team of Jenkins, Osborne, Suzette
Thweatt and Ronda Ricketts had its ups and downs for most of the season
because of an injury to Ricketts. Senior Amy Bannister was consistent in
the middle distance, and the competition had its hands full with Davis and
Michele Bishop in the short sprints.
Senior thrower Sarah Neely and sophomore thrower Julie Victor kept
the Wolverines competitive in the the discus and shotput all last year.
Victor in particular came on strong with NCAA provisional qualifying
throws in the middle of the season.

Senior All-American Mindy Rowand and senior Jennifer McPeck
guided the Michigan Cross Country Team to a third place Big Ten finish,
last fall. Last season, coach Sue Foster also welcomed first-year runners
Colleen Yuhn and one of the top runners in the country as a high school
senior, Molly McClimon.
The squad was routinely finishing among the leaders in their seasonal.
competition. They won the Kansas Invitationals in Lawrence, KS and
placed second overall in the London Invitational in London, Ontario. They
then qualified for Nationals at the end of the season and ended up finishing
fifteenth in the country.
Seniors McPeck, Rowand and Sandra Elliott will not be returning next
year. Michigan will return four of its top seven runners next fall. The
Wolverines and coach Foster will look to senior Amy Bannister for
leadership and runners, McClimon, Kim Haluscsak and Megan Nortz will
fill the vacancies left by the departing seniors. Other runners that may
contribute in the fall will be sophomores Andrea Baass and Yuhn.

If a gymnastics team's success can be measured by a trip to the NCAA
tournament, then last year's men's gymnastics team indeed-found success.
If men's gymnastics coach Bob Darden were asked if his season was a
success, he would definitely say yes.
"We were pleased to get the opportunity to perform before the 5,000 or
so people that attended the competition," Darden said. "Making it to the
regionals meant we had a successful season."
The team finished eighth at the East Regional held April 7 on Penn
State University's campus. The Wolverines were 17.45 points behind first
place Minnesota. Only the top four teams in each of the four regionalA
meets were invited to attend the finals in Minneapolis.
However, two Michigan athletes did make the trip to Minnesota.
Rueben Ceballos, now a junior, qualified for nationals in both the floor
exercise and the vault. Teammate Glenn Hill, also a junior, qualified in
the pommel horse for a second straight year.
Though the team concluded with only a 5-7-1 overall record and a 1-3-
1 record in the Big Ten conference, the stiff competition they faced all
season did not give an accurate indication of the team's ability. The
tumblers consistently faced off against the toughest teams in the Midwest.
Coach Darden had only praise for his athletes.
"I am pleased with the team's showing at the regionals and over the
course of the year. It was an absolute pleasure to coach this group of
young men," Darden said.
He also expressed optimism for the coming season with so many
strong gymnasts coming back.
"Next year we should continue to improve as our team will have an
added year of experience and maturity under its belt. I am looking forward
next season to seeing this team build upon the strong foundation it built
