'M' women runners
receive national bid

The women's cross country team
has realized its season-long goal of
making a fifth appearance at the
NCAA National Cross Country
The Wolverines compete for the
national crown next Monday at the
University of Arizona. After
falling five points shy of second-
place Iowa and an automatic qualifi-
cation at last week's district meet,
the Michigan team received notice
today of their at-large placing.
"We were very excited to receive
the bid," redshirt frosh Jessica
Kluge said. "Our goal all year has
been to be ranked among the top 15
teams in the nation. To reach this
goal, we had to go to nationals."
Yesterday's practice was diffi-
cult for the Wolverines, as they
awaited word of their bid.
"We just wanted to get through
the practice," Kluge said. "All we
thought about during practice was
the phone call. I think we all ex-
pected the bid after our performance
during the season. We ran really
well in a very tough district."
Michigan coach Sue Foster has
picked seven Michigan runners to
compete in Tucson. The team will
include seniors Megan Nortz and
Carrie Yates, junior Amy Buchholz,
sophomore Chris Szabo, and rookies
Jessica Kluge, Kelly Chard, and
Buchholz led the Michigan team
at the NCAA District IV meet
with an eighth-place showing. She
has also placed in the top 10 at six
of the team's seven regular-season
Chard was Michigan's third-best
runner at the district meet, placing
16th, and finished in the top 10 at
five meets this year.
Szabo has placed in the top 10 at
four regular season meets and placed
40th at districts.
Yates and Nortz have been run-
ning for three years and will pro-
vide leadership for the Wolverines.
Harvey and Kluge will round
out the Wolverine contingent. They
crossed the line at districts 11th and
Michigan's strategy for success
at nationals is summed up by Kluge:
"We are going to have to beat every
jersey in front of us, regardless of
the team they are running for."
opens search for coach

The Michigan volleyball team's match Nov. 30 against Iowa will end
both the 1991 season and Peggy Bradley-Doppes' tenure as coach. The pro-
cess is under way to fill the impending vacancy.
Bradley-Doppes currently splits her time between her coaching role and
her duties as Associate Athletic Director. She decided that after this season,
she would concentrate solely on her administrative responsibilities.
Bradley-Doppes, Athletic Director Jack Weidenbach, and Associate
Athletic Directors Mike Stevenson, Bob DeCarolis and Fritz Seyferth
will serve on a committee to find a replacement.
Bradley-Doppes will recommend a number of candidates from a pool of
applicants, after which the committee will name the new coach.
"It's a very attractive job," Bradley-Doppes said. "It's a job people
want to have. It's a real credit to our program and the girls."
SCOUT'S HONOR, IT'S A RECORD: A new attendance record was set
Friday night, as approximately 1,100 fans flooded Keen Arena to see the
Wolverines take on Northwestern. A large reason for this was the presence
of hundreds of Boy and Girl Scouts who took advantage of the Scout Night
"This was a great crowd to play in front of," Bradley-Doppes said. "I
remember last year my first match here where we counted 12 people who
were not with us."
The tykes' enthusiasm bolstered the spirits of the Michigan players, and
they later bolstered the egos of the spikers by demanding autographs from
IT'S BEEN SUCH A LONG TIME: The Wolverines' two victories
over Northwestern this year marked the first Big Ten season sweep since
they accomplished the feat over Michigan State in 1987. They have the op-
portunity to do this against three of their final four opponents - at Pur-
due and Illinois this weekend, and in the final match vs. Iowa.
HIT 'N' KILL: Several players are among the creme de la creme of the
conference statistical leaders. Hitter Fiona Davidson tops the Big Ten
with a .327 hitting percentage. Outside hitter Michelle Horrigan upped
her league-leading kill average to 4.15 kills per game over the weekend.
