Men spikers hope to
avoid further losses
in rare road dual
by Dan Linna
SDaily Sports Writer
The losses keep mounting for the
Michigan men's volleyball team.
While the team experienced its only
defeat of this young season last
Friday against Michigan State, it
also lost its third player.
Two players have not returned to
school for the winter term and a
'We are facing teams
that I feel we are
capable of beating.'
- Tom Johengen
Michigan vollyball coach
third recently resigned from the team
because of time conflicts.
The Wolverines (2-1) have pulled
together to compensate for the losses
as they get ready to face Iowa and
Northwestern in a tri-match tomor-
row in the IM building.
"We are facing teams that I feel
we are capable of beating," Michigan
coach Tom Johengen said. "These
are must-win matches in the sense
that we feel we are a better team, and
we don't want to drop matches we
feel we should win. We can't afford
to lose them."
The Wolverines will play in the
*first and third matches while the
Hawkeyes and Wildcats will square
off in the second. Michigan's first
round opponent will depend on the
travel plans of Iowa and
Considering the adversity the
Wolverines have faced, they are
happy with the progress they have
made thus far. However, as evidenced
by the loss to Michigan State, there
s a need to improve.
"In light of trying to reach the
goal of winning the Big Ten, it's a
matter of continuing to build confi-
dence in our abilities," Johengen
said. "We need to learn how to stay
focused during a match and how to
recover from our mistakes. These
games are important in that they are
all learning opportunities."
Michigan scrimmaged a Canadian
varsity team, Laurentian University,
Monday night and was pleased with
the results. While the Wolverines
have played very well at times, they
are quick to point out that meeting
their goals will require consistent
"Our passing is where we need
the most improvement," junior
Chris Peirce said. "I think it is the
most important aspect of the game.
When we get into trouble, it is usu-
ally because our passing lets down."

Though the Michigan wrestling
team is leaving Ann Arbor for its
second of only three away dual meets
this season, four Wolverines should
feel right at home. Joey Gilbert,
Sean Bormet, Jehad Hamdan, and
Phil Tomek will all be returning to
their home state as Michigan faces
the Northwestern Wildcats tomorrow
Gilbert, a four-time state cham-
pion at Andrews High School in
nearby Orland Park, is looking for-
ward to the chance to wrestle close
"There should be a lot of
Michigan fans, because we have
some guys on the team that are from
around there," Gilbert said. "I'm
pretty psyched about it."
The ninth-ranked Wolverines,
who won last year's meet easily, 31-
9, should have little problem with
the Wildcats. But coach Dale Bahr
knows that Northwestern has some
quality wrestlers, led by all-
American Matt Case (190), who is
currently ranked 11th in the country.
"They have Case returning for
them at 190," Bahr said. "They're
pretty tough at 150 and 158 in the
middle weight classes."
Bahr expects to take his usual
starting lineup to Evanston, though
two tryouts will be held at 118
pounds and 142 pounds.
Dan Leemaster, who was unable
to make weight for the Michigan
State meet, will wrestle Matt Stout
for the 118 position. James Rawls,
who has been a starter all season for
the Wolverines, will go against
Mike Ellsworth for the spot at 142
With the Cliff Keen National
Team Duals coming up in two
weeks, tomorrow's meet will serve
as an ideal opportunity for Michigan
to hone its skills. Bahr is pleased
with his team's progress thus far.
"I think we wrestled very aggres-
sively against Michigan State," Bahr
said. "We're trying to keep up that
intensity because that's the style we
want to develop for the rest of the
The Wolverines, who are 2-0-1 in
the Big Ten after victories over
Illinois and MSU and a tie with
Purdue, probably will improve upon
their 6-0-1 overall record. Michigan
will be led by four wrestlers who are
currently ranked in the top 10.
Gilbert (134) is ranked third in the
nation, while Brian Harper (150),
Bormet (158), and all-American
Lanny Green (177) are each No. 9 in
their respective weight classes.
The men's volleyball team will try to spike Iowa and Northwestern
tomorrow afternoon in a tri-meet at the CCRB.
Wolverine fencers host first tourney
by Greg Richardson
The Michigan fencing team has a
stiff challenge ahead in its first
home meet of the season. The
Wolverines host a round-robin
tournament tomorrow, squaring off
against four varsity squads -
Cleveland State, Case Western
Reserve, Tri-State and Ohio State.
The action begins at 11 a.m. at the
With the Buckeyes providing the
most formidable competition in the
tournament, team confidence is high
in regards to the rest of Michigan's
There will be three weapons used
at tomorrow's tournament - foil,
sabre and epee.
Michigan's top male fencers are
Phil Issa and Ted Morrison. Issa
competes in the foil and prides him-
self on his defense. Morrison will
duel at epee, where any part of the
body is fair game for attacking.
The Wolverine women's foilers
also expect to match up well to-
morrow. Sarah Hipp, the team pres-
ident, works with great precision.
Leah Beacher has the most experi-
ence of the women. She stresses the
importance of footwork.
The biggest concern among the
team is that it doesn't have a full-
time coach. Ivo Wenzler, who helps
out from time to time, won't be
able to coach tomorrow.
Yet, Michigan has strong goals
for the national scene.
"We'd like to win the national
championship, but it's a long shot,"
team treasurer Russ Turner said. "A
realistic goal of ours is to make ev-
eryone we fence respect us."
