Blue harriers flock to EMU
tourney, prepare for Big Tens

For the third straight weekend,
Coach Ron Warhurst will shuttle
his runners over to Ypsilanti for yet
another Friday cross country invita-
tional at Eastern Michigan.
Because Michigan will be hold-
ing back its top five men from com-
petition in order to get some good
workouts in over the weekend, this
meet, the EMU Classic, will be
similar to a meet Michigan ran two
Warhurst is looking for his final
four runners to qualify for the Big
Ten Championships next weekend.
While not everyone will get the op-
portunity to head to the grueling
course at Purdue for that meet, some
spots are open for the road trip to
The top five are essentially
etched in stone, but the next four
runners to represent the Blue in
their quest for a Big Ten title Nov. 2
remain in question.
Today's meet may decide the sea-
son's outcome for the team. While
every meet seems to grow in impor-
tance relative to the previous one,
this meet is vital for those trying to
earn a spot on the road to Purdue.
With Michigan's top five out of
action today, the Wolverines should
still post a strong showing. The
momentum this team carries right
now is at a peak.
The biggest asset Michigan pos-
sesses this year is its ability to fill
in holes should they occur. Today's
meet will provide Michigan with
the opportunity to show how deep
the team really is.
'It was a case of Dr. Jekyll and
M. Hyde yesterday for the Mich-
an women's soccer team. The
Wolverines played two very
different halves of soccer against
Michigan State, a preventive ap-
proach in the first half and a more
aggressive style in the second half.
Michigan welcomed MSU to
Ann Arbor in front of a larger and
louder than usual home crowd,
~king to extend its 20-game un-
aten streak. But the Wolverines
fel short of their first ever
victory against the Spartans and
their nineteenth of the season,
Michigan found itself in a
defensive struggle in the first half
against its Division I foe. It was
not until late in the half,
following a 15 minute delay due to
ightning, that Michigan State
scored its first goal of the game.
The Wolverines entered halftime

"Psychologically, it comes
down to whether we let them do
what they want, or we do what we
want," he said. "We were defin-
itely more concerned with keeping
them from scoring than with

missed the Spartan net. But Mich-
igan State continued to put pres-
sure on the Wolverine defense,
adding its second and final goal
near the end of the game.
"We finally got into the game
in the second half, but our defense
was definitely not used to the
pressure," Joyaux said. "This is
probably the first time all year the
defense had any pressure on it."
Joyaux was still pleased with
his team's improved play in the sec-
"There was a big difference be-
tween the first half and the second
half," Joyaux said. "In the first
half, we tried not to lose. In the
second, we played more to win."
Michigan will look to get back
on the winning side this weekend in
a tournament at Ohio State.

"With the tournament being
double elimination, our goal is to
reach Sunday and play hard every
game," McPartlin said.
McPartlin cited the play of the
team's midfielders as a key to the
Wolverines' chances. He pointed out
that Michigan will have a better
opportunity to excel due to the
modifications in game format for
this tournament, most important of
which is switching from 20-minute
quarters to a 25-minute running
clock. The continuous clock will
help to shorten the games, thus
making the midfielders' jobs easier.
Co-captain Adam Levy sees this
tournament as a matter of pride.
"We're the returning Big Ten
champions and this (tournament)
gives us a chance to play traditional
powers from the East," Levy said.
"As the sole representatives of the
Big Ten and the entire Midwest at
this tournament, we'd like to show
everyone that quality lacrosse is not
confined to the East."
