Spikers home win
streak to be tested
Falcons next for rested Wolverines

Preseason meet to
test men gymnasts

by Albert Lin
Daily Sports Writer
After its second consecutive
home victory over a conference op-
ponent, it is probably time for the
Michigan volleyball team to take a
breather.
The squad will get its break, but
may not enjoy it.
First, as a result of a deal the
players struck with coach Peggy
Bradley-Doppes regarding Wednesday
right's victory over Michigan State,
yesterday's practice was called off.
Second, tonight's opponent will
be Mid-American Conference mem-
ber Bowling Green. This will allow
some time off from the Wolverines'
ig Ten schedule.
Bradley-Doppes doesn't feel the
day off will hurt. The team will have
4 short meeting today and "do a little
serve, serve-receive," and talk about
the match.
"Right now there's nothing more
we can do for this year," Doppes
said. "My biggest thing is to keep
,ji kids healthy and fired up.
"What we need to do is come in
i~ry, very focused and do our job. If
play them the way we played
Ilinois (Michigan's first Big Ten
victory), or even the way we played
niost of the Big Ten teams, we'll be
fine," she added.
Like the Wolverines, Bowling
Green is a young team. The Falcons
saled by junior middl blockers
isa Mika and Tammy Schiller.
Bradley-Doppes worked with Schiller
*tlast summer's Olympic Festival
and feels that she "is a nice - not a
Julia Sturm - but a nice player."
.However, this match will not be
a walk in the park, as Bowling
Green comes to Ann Arbor with a
24-6 (4-4 MAC) record.
Falcon coach Denise Van De
Walle does not know that much
about the Michigan team, but she

remains undaunted. "We haven't seen
them play this year at all, but we{
know they've got some good play-
ers," she said.
In a scrimmage last spring,
Bowling Green "crushed" the
Wolverines, according to Van De
Walle. But she understands that that
was a tough match for the Michigan
program, since it came just after
Bradley-Doppes' arrival as head
coach.
With the MAC tournament start-
ing next weekend, Van De Walle is
happy just to have an extra week of
competition. "We haven't really, as
of late, been thinking that much
about our opponents and what
they're doing, as opposed to what we
feel like we need to be doing well to
win," she said.
Bowling Green did nothing spe-
cial in preparation for tonight's test.
"We've been concentrating a lot on
our offense because we feel we've
got some pretty good offensive play-
ers," Van De Walle said. "We're just
working on our passing so we can
run our offense well, and we spent a
lot of time the past two weeks work-
ing on our defense so our transition
game would be good."
A controversy may be brewing
after Bradley-Doppes said that the
Falcons have "had some success be-
cause they're not playing much of a
schedule. You see somebody (with
their record) and you think they're
pretty good, but (the number of
wins) doesn't matter. It's who you're
winning against."
Van De Walle defended her team,
producing a schedule which included
victories over four regionally-ranked
opponents and games against three
others.
"I'm surprised she would dare
even make that kind of comment
about our schedule, because the only
teams I see her playing are the Big
Ten teams," she said.

The Michigan men's gymnastics
team will compete in the Wisconsin
Open, a preseason meet for the
Midwest's gymnasts, this weekend.
The Big Ten will be well repre-
sented, and the meet will help the
Wolverines on two levels, according
to coach Bob Darden.
On one level, Darden said the
competition provides "a unique op-
portunity to test some of the move-
ments and routines we're going to
use on the NCAA level." On the
second level, it's the National Gov-
erning Board's Senior Regional
Qualifying Meet for the United
States Gymnastics Federation.
That means the National Govern-
ing Board selects a team from this
meet to compete in the Winter Na-
tionals - teams are also chosen
from the East and West regions -
from which the Olympic team is ul-
timately chosen.
The six-event meet runs for two
days, beginning Friday evening with

the Olympic compulsory events,
when Michigan will only have one
competitor, Jim Round.
The rest of the team will join
Round, who will compete in all six
events, on Saturday as the prelimi-
naries begin at 1 p.m. The individual
finals will be at 7 p.m. Darden said
the meet has generally been a fierce
competition, usually with close to
100 gymnasts per event.
When the Wolverines start their
regular season in January, they will
have a tough fight ahead of them to
finish near the top of the conference.
"The Big Ten perennially has
been very strong in men's gymnas-
tics," said Darden, who listed Ohio
State, Michigan State, and Min-
nesota as especially formidable foes.
However, conference competition
doesn't really mean much. Last sea-
son, the Wolverines finished last in
the Big Ten, but after defeating
Michigan State and Ohio State in
the Regionals, they finished ranked
No. 17 in the nation.

Varsity Arena renamed
for former coach Keen

Home field no longer

*Women's lacrosse team
expects strong spring
by Jim Sagar

by Jim Sagar
Last night, the University of
Michigan officially renamed Var-
sity Arena the Cliff Keen Arena in-
honor of long-time Michigan
wrestling coach Cliff Keen. The
Keen building is a versatile ath-
letic complex which serves as
home to Michigan's volleyball,
gymnastics, and wrestling teams.
The dedication took about half
an hour. Keen stood in attendance
as commemorations were given by
Michigan athletic director Jack
Weidenbach and Keen's former
wrestling pupil and current athletic
director of the University of Min-
nesota, Rick Bay.
Cliff Keen coached Michigan
wrestling from 1925 to 1970. His
45 years is the longest tenure of

any head coach in any sport in
NCAA history. During those
years, Keen's teams won 13 Big
Ten tournament championships
and compiled a .747 winning
percentage.
Keen was also a member of the
Michigan football coaching staff
for 33 years, and is the only coach
in modern times to coach Big Ten
champions in two different sports.
He also achieved many athletic ac-
complishments before his coach-
ing days, when he was a three-
sport star at Oklahoma A&M
(now Oklahoma State).
Aside from coaching and athlet-
ics, Keen received his law degree
from the University of Michigan
and is a member of the Michigan
State Bar.

As Keith Jackson would say,
hold everything!
Ohio State's 27-26 upset of Iowa
made the Big Ten football race inter-
esting again, but Iowa still controls
its own destiny and will go to the
Rose Bowl by winning its last two
games.
This year, home-field advantage
has disappeared in the Big Ten. For
the first time since 1986, no team
will go undefeated in conference
home games.
Ohio State at Wisconsin
After an 0-1-1 start in the Big
Ten, the Buckeyes (4-1-1 Big Ten)
can still go to Pasadena with two
more victories and an Iowa loss.
They should roll over the hapless
Badgers (0-6).
But if Ohio St. looks past Wis-

consin to its showdown with Michi-
gan, the Badgers could make it
close.
Illinois at Indiana
The Fighting Illini's high presea-
son expectations and shattered Rose
Bowl dreams are becoming an annual
tradition. Indiana's record (5-3-4
overall, 2-3-1 Big Ten) is deceiving.
The five teams they have beaten
have a combined 12-35 record.
Michigan St. at Northwestern'
The Spartans will try to improve
on last year's 76-14 thrashing of the
Wildcats. Then, maybe they'll be
ready for the Denver Nuggets.
Purdue at Iowa
Purdue coach Fred Akers' job is
on the line. A blowout victory by
probable Rose Bowl participant Iowa
could put that final nail in his
coffin.

The University of Michigan's
women's lacrosse team is getting
stronger. Many people don't know
the school even has a women's
t'wrosse squad, but that may change
*sthe near future.
In its sixth year, the team seems
to be putting the ingredients together
that it needs to become better known
at a school where club sports take a
backseat to varsity athletics. Judging
by senior attacker Stephanie Andel-
man's positive attitude, the Wolver-
ines should make their first big im-
pact during next spring's schedule.
The tri-captain has been with Michi-
*gan for her four years in Ann Arbor,
and feels excited about the team's
chances this spring.
"This year is especially good,"
Andelman said, "because we have
some new freshmen who were re-
cruited for lacrosse at other schools,
and they decided not to go to those
schools, so they're playing for us."
The Wolverines practice three
times a week during the fall, and
they will practice indoors during the
winter. Michigan is currently
weight-training in preparation for
their spring season.
Burt Engel was named Michi-

gan's first coach last season and re-
ally began to bring the team
together.
But even though the team is
gaining strength, it still has to
worry about scheduling its own
matches. Last year, some of the
games and tournaments fell through
because of a lack of organization.
This year, though, Andelman and
her teammates see a brighter spring
ahead. Wisconsin, Purdue, Mas-
sachusetts and Northwestern are a
few of the teams that might be on
the schedule, and Andelman has her
sights on getting games and tourna-
ments scheduled for every weekend
in April.
But it is expensive to schedule a
team with a strong program, such as
Northwestern or Massachusetts.
Michigan needs to focus heavily on
raising funds to supplement the
players' dues, Andelman said.
And because a few of the club
members won't be studying in Ann
Arbor this winter, more players will
be accepted into the club. Andelman
stressed that "the team is made up of
all levels (of experience), but this
year it is especially advanced."
