Streak at three for kickers

If the men's soccer team could
find more teams in Kalamazoo, their
prospects would be bright indeed.
However, the Wolverines will have
to be content with the impressive
back-to-back victories over the two
Kalamazoo schools they faced,
Western Michigan and Kalamazoo
The Wolverine club (9-7) now
faces perennially competitive
Schoolcraft College, in a 4 p.m.
match at Mitchell Field today. It
appears as if the team, which has
pieced together a three-game win
streak, has finally emerged from the
dire straits of its inconsistent play.
"Hopefully, we've put that behind
us," stopper Tim Puckett said. "I
think Wednesday's game should tell
if we have (put the streaky play
behind us) for good."
The sparkling play of the defense,
led by goalkeeper Marc Kuiper, has
been the impetus for the resurgence
of the team's play. Each defender

netminder earn his sixth shutout of
the year, and third in a row.
"I think we had a strong defensive
performance from everyone," Mich-
igan coach Don Schwartz said of
Saturday's victory over Division III
school Kalamazoo College.
If Schoolcraft's offense does not
bring about the Wolverines' demise,
then perhaps injuries will. Injuries
have taken significant amounts of
playing time away from several key
players, including playmaker Dick
Hillary and sweeper Kelly Kuehne,

Schwartz has had to plug up the
fullback spot repeatedly, rotating
Scott Seabolt, Scott McNabb, and
Doug Spaymer. Each one has
sustained an injury that has put him
out of action during the season.
Today, with all three still recov-
ering, Schwartz will call upon Bill
Tarnacky to fill in at the position.
The silver lining in this cloud
has been the outstanding play of
sweeper Brian Rosewarne, who has
spelled Kuehne for the majority of
the season. Rosewarne, who had
always played halfback and forward,
has shined in his new role.
"It was kind of hard at first. It's
hard getting adjusted," Rosewarne
said. "But the other day, I was play-
ing forward in practice, and I feel
more comfortable now playing de-

Schwartz spoke highly of Rose-
warne after Saturday's match.
"Brian Rosewarne did really we*
to keep the defense organized and
clear a lot of balls that were served
into the box," he said.
But Schwartz will not be able to
rely on his defense to keep turning
out shutouts, especially against a
team of Schoolcraft's caliber. In the
last three matches, while Michigan's
defense has been impressive, th
offense was able to contribute onl
one goal per game. Schwartz
diagnoses the inability to capitalize
as the problem.
"It would be nice to take
advantage of the opportunities we
create," Schwartz said. "We're
getting opportunities to shoot and
attack in the final third (of the field),
and we don't take advantage."

Defeating obstacles not new
to 'M' cross country walk-on
by Becky Weiss
Amy Buchholz is not the first athlete to have walked
onto a Michigan varsity athletic program. But this
season, she may prove to be the most valuable.
Buchholz is the only non-scholarship athlete on the
Wolverine women's cross-country team who con-
sistently scores among the top seven runners. However,
she does not just top the list of walk-ons; she is one of
the top runners on the team.
Coach Sue Foster labels Buchholz's success as "a
big accomplishment for someone not recruited. It is just
due to her motivation."
The motivation necessary to join a varsity team
without a scholarship and excel on that team is difficult
to comprehend. Even Buchholz remains surprised at her
accomplishments. Running always came easy to her,
but the spirit of competition was a little more difficult
to get used to.
"I didn't like to race in seventh grade," Buchholz
said. "I didn't want to run so I used to tell my parents I
As she continued training in the eighth grade, her
attitude.towards running did not change all that much.
Yet, she continued running over the next few years and,
eventually, the Fort Wayne, Indiana native developed an
affinity toward racing. She enjoyed a great deal of
success on her high school team,, as well as on an
international sports exchange team in China.
However, these successes did not make the college
adjustment any easier. After walking on the varsity
squad, Buchholz encountered the burden of belonging to
a demanding sports program in addition to dealing with
normal, first-year stress.
"Not only did we not have to run as far in high
school, but it is a tough adjustment to come to college
and run and do everything right," Buchholz said.
Her performances yielded successful results, but were
not meeting her own personal standards. Then she
encountered the additional challenge of a mid-season
"Finding out that I was anemic helped me get
through," she said. "I had been doubting (myself) and it
helped me to know that it wasn't all in my head."
Buchholz's renewed attitude prompted her to increase
her summer workouts. This season she was the first
Michigan runner to place in the first two races.
"She has developed into one of the top performers in
the Big Ten," Foster praised. "She'll probably be in the
top ten to 15 in the Big Ten Championships (this
"She still has a lot more potential and is just going
to be getting better and better. She is a definite role
model for other non-scholarship athletes."
