It's time the Michigan women's rugby team got a little recognition.
The team has been working hard to shake its anonymity, not to mention
Currently the Wolverines have a 3-2 record, but that is somewhat
misleading because their two losses have come against club squads that
contain only older, graduate players with previous experience beyond the
undergraduate level. Michigan's club team consists of about one-quarter
undergraduate students as well as the veteran players.
Rigularly, however, Michigan matches up well with most teams. The
Wolverines have racked up three impressive shut-outs including 36-0 and
24-0 victories over Ball State and Purdue respectively, en route to
winning the Michigan/Ohio/Indiana Subunion Tournament.
After such stellar early season results, the Wolverines are looking
forward to facing Purdue again Saturday morning at Mitchell Field.
"We beat them 24-0 before, but we don't want to go in over-
confident," team president Erika Wolf said. "That's how you lose.
"They (Purdue) were down two players last time. They'll bring a
bigger squad this time also, so it will be a good match."
Although Michigan only sports a club team right now, Wolf expressed
the wish to generate enough undergraduate interest to have a team
composed solely of undergraduates.
Men's cross country
preps for Big Tens
by Kevin Sundman
The Big Ten Championships in Minneapolis are a week away.
The NCAA District IV Championships in Knoxville, Tennessee are
three weeks away.
With the two biggest meets of the year looming large in the
immediate future, it might seem hard for a team to focus on its next meet.
But, that is what faces the men's cross country team as it travels to
-Ypsilanti today to take on Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, and
Michigan State, among others.
With conference championships next week, the meet will serve as a
tune-up for most of the teams. But, coach Ron Warhurst has another
purpose for the meet. He will hold out his top four runners: Brad Barquist,
Tony Carna, Jeff Barnett, and Matt Smith. Instead, the next eight runners
on the roster will compete.
"I'm using this meet to let those eight runners decide who is going to
run for us in the Big Ten meet," Warhurst said. "We have our top four
set, but we need to find that important fifth man before the Big Ten meet.
This week gives us one more chance to find him."
'M' icers crash at BGSU, 8-3"
Jiranek hat trick, third period

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -
Two minutes and 48 seconds into
the second period, a section of a
light fixture on the ceiling of the
Bowling Green Arena came crashing
to the ice behind the Falcon goal.
Call it a coincidence or call it an
omen. Regardless, the roof definitely
fell in on the Wolverine hockey
team, as they were crushed by
Bowling Green, 8-3.
Junior center Martin Jiranek led
the way for the Falcons (1-2-0) with
a hat trick. Jiranek's efforts were
supported by sophomore center Brett
Hartkins, who tallied two goals to
go with a pair of assists.
"Martin Jiranek had some jump
in him tonight," Bowling Green
coach Jerry York said. "He has the
ability to be a great:catalyst for our

eager to redeem themselves after
being swept last weekend by Lake
"We came out and moved our
intensity up a notch," Jiranek said.
"It's a big rivalry whenever we play
Jiranek's hat-trick goal came 6:36
into the third period, in which the
Falcons chalked up three unanswered,
goals to put the game away.
Bowling Green established an
early lead, as the bulk of the first
period scoring took place within a
span of 52 seconds.
After Michigan defenseman Chris
Tamer and Bowling Green center
Sean Pronger exchanged pleasantries
at the 11:19 mark, both were sent to
the penalty box for two minutes for
roughing, with Pronger picking up
Aris Brimanis pass and slipped it
past goaltender Steve Shields to draw
Before the crowd had a chance to
sit back down, Jiranek kicked the
puck back to defenseman Ken Klee,
who blasted it past Shields to make
the score 2-0.

22 Iowa (4-1 overall, 2-0 tied for

The Hawkeyes are looking to
hand Michigan its first homecoming
loss since a 27-20 defeat to Indiana
in 1967. With a victory, Iowa's

"I think realistically we have an
opportunity against Michigan
because we just defeated the team
(Michigan State) that defeated them
this past week as opposed to when
we were going down to Miami (Fla.)
and there wasn't a way in God's
green heaven that I can visualize us
to beating those people down there,"
Hawkeye coach Hayden Fry said.
Senior tailbacks Nick Bell and
Tony Stewart spearhead the Iowa
offense. Bell has rushed for 400
yards and caught 11 passes, while
Stewart has churned out 390 yards
on the ground and hauled in six
Stewart, sidelined last season
with a knee injury, became the first
sophomore in Hawkeye history to
rush for over 1,000 yards in 1988.
"They have two guys that are
fast, can run and can catch the ball,"
Moeller said. "They present the
biggest problem because we've had
trouble with the run and you know
they're going to come in here and'
just try to run and possess the ball."
Moeller expects more from his
defense than it has shown in recent
"I want us to be more of a
punishing team when we tackle," he
said. "When you play against a great
defensive football team, that fumble
is going to come out of there."
Middle linebacker Melvin Foster
makes the Iowa defense one of the
strongest in the conference. Foster
registered 20 tackles and intercepted a
pass in Iowa's 12-7 victory against
"They have one strong linebacker
in Foster," Moeller said. "Anytime
you have a great middle linebacker,
you're always going to be good
defensively because he'll make some
big plays for you."
