Hall receives one-game
suspension for scuffle

Netters coast to 8-1

by Ryan Herrington
Daily Basketball Writer
It did not take long for the Michigan
Swomen's basketball teum to lose the services
of Michelle Hall.
Hall, who made her return to the
Wolverine lineup just last weekend follow-
ing an early-season foot injury, was suspended
by the NCAA for her involvement in a scuffle
with Indiana's Shirley Bryant in Sunday's 85-
49 loss to the Iloosiers.
Ill a contest
marred by physical
play, especially in
the low-post area,
tempers climaxed
midway through the
second half. l lall,
posting up against
the first-year lloos-
ier forward, went
for a rebound and the
two collided. Hall
Words were ex-
*changed between the two players. Before any
punches were thrown, referee Bill Titus
stepped in and gave both players double
flagrant fouls, ejecting them from the contest
with 6:28 remaining in the game.
Under NCAA rules, any player ejected
from a game for whatever reason is to be sus-
pepded for one gune following the ejection.
The Big Ten conference supports the policy,
which went into effect prior to this season.
- hall will sit out of Friday's miatchup against
*Michigan State. Bryant was also suspended

and will miss Indiana's game against Illinois.
Michigan coach Bud VanDeWege did not
question the NCAA's decision to suspend
Hall.
"I support the rule," VanDeWege com-
mented. "I agree with the rule and fully sup-
port the action that the official took, as well
as the NCAA and the Big Ten."
In addition to the loss of Hall, Michigan
received news this weekend that reserve for-
wards Latara Jones and Sherell Stanley will
both be sidelined due to injuries.
Jones dislocated her knee and will be out
for the remainder of the season. She suffered
the sune injury in the preseason, forcing her to
miss Michigan's first seven games.
Vanl)eWege is investigating the possibility of
redshirting.Jones, who has played only five
games this season.
Stanley is suffering from a recurring
shoulder problem, which she injured for the
fourth time this season during the pregune
shootaround prior to the Indiana contest. Iler
status is questionable and will not oflicially
be determined until later this week.
THE RECO)RDB OOK; Junior center Trish
Andrew blocked five shots Sunday at Indiana,
giving her a total of 89 on the season. That
breaks by one the Michigan single-season
record which she set last year.
Andrew also moved into sixth place on the
Wolverines' career rebound list and became
the 10th leading career scorer. She now has 521
rebounds and 925 poiits in her two-and-one-
half seasons.

The Michigan women 's tennis
team cruised to an 8-1 victory in its
home opener this weekend against+
Eastern Michigan. Wolverine sin-
gles players led the strong victory,
each with decisive two-set matches.
"We played well in singles,"
Michigan coach Bitsy Ritt said.
"EMU was more competitive in
some slots than others, but we
played well across the board to
win."
At No. I singles, Wolverine
Kalei Beanon led the team with a
victory over Eastern Michigan's
Caryn Stube, 6-1, 6-1. Michigan's
Amy Malik defeated Eagle Naomi
Mokelke, 6-4, 6-1, for the triumph
at No. 2 singles. First-year
Wolverine Jamie Fielding defeated
EMU's Nicole Gottschalk at No. 3
singles, 6-2, 6-0.
Ritt was pleased with the per-
formance of her first-year players.
"This was our first competition
since early November and the first
dual meet of the season, and it
turned out to be a good start," Ritt
said. "The freshmen needed this
type of experience the most."
At No. 4 singles, Michigan se-
nior Kim Pratt displayed a solid 6-
0, 6-2 victory over Lauren

er Eagles
Watassek. Another first-year
Wolverine, No. 5 singles player.
Allison Schlonsky, topped Julie
Thompson, 6-2, 6-1. Michigan co-
captain Freddy Adam played
strongly in a 6-2, 6-1 victory over
Jenny Beigh at No.6 singles.
At the No.1 doubles position.
the Eagles' Stube and Mokelke de-
feated Pratt and Fielding for
Michigan's only defeat of the meet.
"At No.1 doubles, I felt that
EMU really won the net," Ritt
said. "Stube and Mokelke have been
playing together for a while and
have very quick hands. We began to
become more competitive in the
second set when we began to lob
the ball more and keep back from
the net. EMU won almost every
point when all four players were
crowding the net."
For Michigan's doubles tri-
umphs, Adam and Malik defeated
Watassek and Thompson, 6-2, 6-1,
at No. 2 doubles. Beamon and
rookie Liz Cyganiak combined at
No. 3 doubles to post a 6-0, 6-1
victory over Beigh and Glottschalk.
"We have another meet in two
weeks to help us tune up before
Northwestern and Wisconsin,"
Ritt said. "This match was compet-
itive, and we can see the areas where
we need improvement."

Host

Illini rule Blue at weekend

track meets'

Men cruise into second place

Women taste first defeat of season

{

by Bruce Inosencio
Daily Sports Writer

Michigan's Dan Oden, Tony
Carna and Gregg Duffy each won
their event Saturday in an indoor
track meet at Champaign. The
Wolverines ended up losing to host
Illinois, but they easily pulled away
from the rest of the competition.
The final results of the five-way
meet found Illinois scoring 100
points; with Michigan (68), Eastern
Illinois (40.5), Western Illinois
(26.5), and North Central (16)
struggling to keep up with the
Fighting Illini.
Carna posted a winning time of
14:32.3 in the 5,000-meter run. Also
placing in the 5,000 for the Wolver-
ines was .1ien Finlayson, who fin-
ished second in 14:30.08.
Michigan also captured first-
place points in the mile run. Oden
ran to a 4:10.02 victory, but his
competition was right on his heels.
Second place went to Illinois' Jason
West, who crossed the line in

4:10.18.
In the 600, Duffy ran his way to
first place with a time of 1:20.75.
Duffy, like Oden, also won by a ma-
row margin - Illinois' Arvella
Brooks finished only .84 seconds be-
hind Duffy.
Although the Wolverines calne
up short this weekend, Michigan
coach Jack Harvey said he is still
confident.
"We've got a good te;un, but
right now we don't have the first-
place points we need if we're going
to win meets," Iuvey said.
"Brad Darr and Dan Reddan need
to help out, and I'm sure they will.
As long as Oden, Ou-na and Duffy
keep coming through for us, we'll
stay right in there," Harvey added.
Reddan placed second in the high
jump this weekend, but Darr was
unable to clear his starting height in
the pole vault.

After two weeks of sweet vic-
tory, the Michigan women's track
team had its first taste of the bit-
terness of defeat Saturday. The
Wolverines finished in third place
at Illinois with 45 points, while
Illinois and Iowa tied for first with
50 points.
"Things went OK, but not as
well as we expected," Michigan
coach Junes Harvey said. "We got
off to a very good start, so we may
have been expecting too much since
it's still early in the season."
Harvey had high expectations for
the sprinters and long sprinters,

based on their earlier efforts.
"The first two meets they did
really well; this week they seemed
to level off," Harvey said. "They're
running well, and it's still early so
I'm not too concerned."
Although Harvey believes the
Wolverines may have underesti-
mated the strength of the Hawkeyes
in the middle-distance and distance
events, he was happy with the way
the Michigan women responded.
"Iowa did really well in the
quarter-mile and mile," he said.
"They proved to be better thamiwe

had anticipated," I larvey said.
The Outstanding Athlete Award
went to Michigan athletes Court-
ney Babcock and Jennifer Ridgley.
Babcock, running in her second col-
legiate meet, finished second in the
mile with a personal- and colle-
giate-best time of 4:52.09. Ridgley
finished third in the 400- meter run
with a time of :58.16 and was a
member of the third-place mile re-
lay with a split time of :55.4.

'f

Other top finishers included
Amy Banister, Jessica Kluge, Carrie
Yates, and Chris Szabo.
