FIELD HOCKEY SQUAD DUSTS OFF MSU, BALL STATE
Stickers rule State after sweep
by Matthew Dodge
Daily Sports Writer
Yesterday in East Lansing, the
Michigan field hockey team
confirmed the high hopes of its loyal
fans. It showed that it was the best
team in the state-at least for one
In a surprising display of
defensive domination, the Wolver-
ines earned two shutouts this wee-
kend: beating Ball State 2-0 on Fri-
day, and blasting Michigan State 3-0
Michigan, which only tallied a 9-
9-2 record last season, is off to a
flying start in 1990. The team is 5-
During the opening ten minutes
of the game, the Spartans kept the
action exclusively in the Michigan
end of the field. It appeared that the
Wolverines would be in for yet
another loss to the Spartans.
But senior co-captain Josee
Charvet changed things in a hurry.
In a span of sixty seconds, the
star midfielddr scored twice. The
flurry took the heart out of the
Spartans early surge.
Charvet scored twelve minutes
into the game off a corner.
The second score was a work of
art. Defender Keely Libby picked up
the ball and slashed through the
entire State front line. She then fired
a bullet to Charvet, who lofted the
ball up and over the goalkeeper.
Patricia Maran snuck the final
goal past the State keeper before
halftime to seal the win.
The right side of the Michigan
offense gave the Wolverines a
significant edge throughout the
game. Time after time, sweeper
Patricia Maran cleared the ball out of
the Michigan end to defender Hilary
Hughes. Hughes, who seems to hit
longer drives than most professional
golfers, repeatedly sent the ball up to
a driving Kalli Hose.
In East Lansing, a star was born.
Kalli Hose, a freshman forward
from Del Mar, California, played as
if she was still playing against high
school competition. The speedster
outplayed older, more experienced
Have you ever had a little kid
follow you around, nipping at your
heels, giving you endless grief? At
every turn, the kid is there causing
That is how the Spartan
midfielders must have felt about
Hose. All game, she slipped in
behind them to steal the ball, or
sprinted by them to rush the net.
The fact that this was a
Michigan-Michigan State matchup
had little affect on the rookie.
Because she is from the west coast,
the intense meaning that is placed on
the game has not yet sunk in.
"I can sense the rivalry," Hose
said. But for now, this win was just
like any other. "It felt great to win
Coach Patti Smith is thrilled
with Hose's progress. "Kalli is
really coming on as an attacker. She
has a lot of potential, and her timing
is getting better," Smith said. "She
has settled into Michigan and the
team. Kalli is going to be out of
What do the back to back
shutouts say about the rest of the
season? The players and fans are
optimistic, but Coach Smith is
Hockey on tap as
new season opens

Less than one month into the fall term, the intramural (IM) sports
scene is in full swing, featuring current action in four sports, the
addition of fall ice hockey, and a major rule change for fraternity division
Soccer, golf, tennis and softball have already begun their seasons,
with flag football, track and cross-country soon to get underway.
New this year is fall ice hockey. Due to the popularity of winter
hockey, this expanded format features both fall and winter competition
and participation from 30 teams in each season, up from last year's 24
team winter-only limit.
The fraternity division also has been changed. All-sports trophy
competition now includes soccer and mini-soccer results in the final
Several important dates for intramural signup are quickly
approaching. Flag football signup occurs October 1st and 2nd, with play
beginning the 8th at Tartan Turf and Mitchell Field. Fall ice hockey
entries are due October 10th, between 9:30 am and 6:00 pm. At that
time a lottery for the 30 team positions will occur.
The first track meet will be this Wednesday, September 26 at the
Varsity Track behind the intramural building. The first cross-country
meet will be October 9th at Mitchell Field.
'M' women harriers run away with title
by Jim Foss
Daily Sports Contributor
The women's cross country team captured first
place in the Western Ontario Invitational on
Saturday. The team ran away from the field,
finishing with 51 points.
Penn State edged out Yale for second place in
the meet. The Nittany Lions finished with 87
.points, while the Bulldogs were a point behind
with 88. Western Ontario and Kentucky rounded
out the top five in a field of thirteen teams.
The course was slower than the one at last
week's MSU Invitational, because of hills and
soft ground'caused by rain from earlier in the
"Our runners needed to get out fast because we
knew (once the race started) positions wouldn't
change much," coach Sue Foster said.
Sophomore Amy Buchholz was the top
runner on the squad for the second consecutive
week, finishing fifth overall in a time of 18:18.
First year runner, Jennifer Armstrong, running in
front of her hometown, placed ninth in 18:34.
Sophomore Molly McClimon finished in
18:41 to for tenth place. Katie Stern and Kim
Haluscsak captured 13th and 14th places, fin-
ishing in times of 18:48 and 18:49, respectively.
"We were really excited with our overall
performance," Foster said. "Amy (Buchholz)
especially did a tremendous job. She has
improved so much. Jennifer (Armstrong) also did
a great job. She put a lot of pressure on herself
to do well, but she's only a freshman."
The team's victory cannot only be attributed
to the finish of the top two runners, but also to
the performances of the final three scoring
"Near the end, they ran well together," Foster
said. "They worked together and helped each other
Even though the team is young, the Michigan
squad has set some goals, which if realized, will
be ones which any team could be proud of.
"We want to place high in all invitationals-
at least in the top three," Foster stated. "We also
want to qualify as a team for the NCAA's."
An at-large bid to the NCAA Championships
is the most realistic way for Michigan to
accomplish this last goal, because they are in the
same district as highly-touted Indiana and
Wisconsin, who will likely claim the two
The team received an at-large bid last year, and
if they continue to perform well in major
invitationals such Western Ontario and the
upcoming Minnesota Invitational, it is entirely
possible they will reach this goal.
Rain puts damper on kickers;
win streak holding at three

No contest as U.S. spikes Cuba at Crisler
by Albert Lin
Daily Sports Writer
As easy as 1, 2, 3.
Last Thursday night, in a fun-
filled evening, the United States
National Women's Volleyball team
had an easy time with the Cuban
team, winning the match in three
straight games, 15-5, 15-13, 16-14.
Although it was not Cuba's 'A'
team, no one felt that that dimin-
ished the significance of the victory.
"It's Cuba. We beat Cuba," setter
Lori Endicott said. "It would have
been nice to beat their best players,
but I think it's exciting to play
Cuba anytime just because they've
been so good for so many years."
So why didn't the top team make
the trip from Cuba?
"I never know what the Cubans
are going to do," U.S. coach Terry
Liskevych said. "I was prepared for
their first team - in fact they told us
they were bringing the same team
they had at the World
Caren Kemner said. "It shows a lot
of spirit on our half to keep them
there and still come out winning the
match. When it was 14-14, we said,
OK. We start at zeroes, first team to
After the U.S. regained serve, the
Cubans made a mistake when they
let Endicott's block go without a
return attempt. The ball landed on
the baseline for a 15-14 lead.
Tee Sanders then closed out the
match with a kill to the far corner.
Kemner led the Americans for the
match with twenty-four kills, and
only three errors, for a .512 hitting
percentage, while Endicott proved to
be team catalyst with fifty-eight
assists - all but four of the team
"We. were expecting a very
different lineup," Endicott added.
"They brought in different players,
and in our pre-game meeting we
decided we would just go out and
play hard and see what they threw at
us, and then adjust."
The last game proved to be the
most exciting as the Americans built
a 14-7 lead and looked to finish off
However, after blowing two
opportunities to close out the match,
the U.S. squad surrendered seven
consecutive points as Cuba tied the
game at 14.
"They should never have come
back that well," United States hitter
The U.S. quickly jumped out to a
10-1 lead in the first game en route
to the 15-5 final. They dominated all
aspects of the game, and were paced
by Kemner's ten kills and Endicott's
But then came a scare. The
Americans fell behind 8-0 in game
two, and in light of the many errors
the U.S. made, it appeared that this
was Cuba's game.
"(The second game) was a
nightmare at the beginning,"
However, at 12-5 in favor of
Cuba, the U.S. team strung together
six points to narrow the deficit to
one. After giving up another point,
to trail 13-11, they scored the final
four points to win the game.
"We just came out a little
shaky," Endicott explained. "They
were playing tough, but we hung in
there and won."
The Michigan's men's soccer team's three game win streak was put
on hold over the weekend. The culprit wasn't a loss, but a cancellation.
The Wolverines found out late Friday that their scheduled match
against Eastern Michigan would have to be postponed because of a field
deemed too wet to play on. The club held practice Saturday, instead, but
found it to be no substitute for a game that could have improved their
record to 6-3.
With their confidence on a season-high level, the kickers were
anxious to take on the Hurons.
"We were disappointed the game was cancelled because we were
excited to play them," starting stopper Tim Puckett said. "But at least
we held a practice, so the weekend wasn't totally unproductive." Having
a game cancelled in the midst of the team's best stretch of the season
proved "quite a downer," according to Puckett, but the team plans to
maintain its elevated confidence level.
The game against the Hurons is being rescheduled. Next weekend,
Michigan seeks its fourth, fifth and sixth victories. The Wolverines
travel to Champaign to play in a round robin tournament against Iowa,
Illinois, and Missouri.
MEN'S CROSS COUNTRY:
Redshirts lead Blue back to
success after dismal 1989
by Ken Sugiura
Daily Sports Writer
Lost: One Michigan Men's Cross-Country Team, last sighted
finishing eighth in the Big Ten. Not to be confused with 1990 team. If
found, please contact Big Ten Headquarters.
Cross-country coaches in East Lansing, Madison and elsewhere can
only wish that this was the truth because last year's pushovers have
become this year's powerhouse.
After welcoming back redshirts Tony Carna and captains Brad
Barquist and Jeff Barnett, the Wolverines have served notice that they are
a team to be reckoned with. Saturday, they posted another convincing
win, this time at the Western Ontario Invitational, handily defeating the
14-team field, which included traditional powers Kentucky and Yale.
Senior Barquist led the way again, this time placing first and
completing the 10,000 meter course in 31:50, six seconds ahead of third-
place finisher Carna. Rounding out the top five were eighth-place
Barnett, ninth-place Matt Smith and nineteenth-place Jason Colvin, in
32:15, 32:28 and 33:01, respectively.
Warhurst's strategy went off without a hitch. Barquist, Carna, Barnett
and Smith stayed with the front pack for the duration of the race, and
with a mile and a half remaining, Carna and Barquist picked up the pace
and ran away fron the 126-man field to their respective finishes.
Warhurst had high praise for the redshirt freshman Colvin.
"He finished ninth on the team last week," he said, "but yesterday he
ran very well and gave us a big boost."
"It was really a key finish," Barquist added. "If he hadn't moved up,
we probably wouldn't have come away with a win."
Th'e success this season has brought has the team looking up.
"After finishing eighth last year, any win for us is really nice,"
Warhurst said. "The guys are really excited and they have a great attitude.
We're looking forward to challenging for the Big Ten title."
After taking the week off, the Wolverines head up to Minneapolis for
the Minnesota Invitational, one of the biggest meets of the regular
season. Warhurst and the team are looking forward to take on the field,
which will include several Big Ten teams, and to reacquaint itself with
the course, as it will be the site of the Big Ten Championships October
Says Warhurst, "I'll tell you what. We're not going to finish eighth
