skiers sweep weekend
This weekend could have been the
end of the Michigan ski team's sea-
son, but two first-place finishes
kept it alive.
Only the top five teams at the
divisional meet at Caberfae and
Crystal Mountain advanced to the
regional championships which will
be held in two weeks. The Michigan
teams each secured their spots, rac-
ing past the entire field.
The women led their pack of
qualifiers, dominating Michigan
State, Central Michigan, Notre
Dame, and Western Michigan.
"There was definitely more at
stake (at divisionals)," rookie Kelly
Copeland said. "But everyone was
still relaxed and having fun."
The women conquered both the
slalom and the giant slalom captur-
ing almost every top position.
The Wolverines swept the top,
three spots in the giant slalom with
captain Lisa Witty leading the way,
placing first in 57.11 seconds. Amy
Portenga was second in 57.20 and
Kelly Copeland captured third with
a time of 57.34.
In the slalom, Portenga com-
pleted her successful weekend, plac-
ing first in 56.41. Witty finished
close behind in 56.71. Sara
MacKeigan took fourth place in
57.28, Copeland was seventh, and
Amy Gray finished 11th.
"We were watching a lot of the
downhill at the Olympics," Witty
said. "Everyone had the 'go for it'
The men will travel to Sugarloaf
for the regional race along with
Western Michigan, MSU, Ferris
State, and Notre Dame.
Two weeks ago, the men finished
in the sixth spot against many of the
same teams. This week, the men
were much improved and narrowly
captured the divisional title.
"It was a three way tie and we
had to go to the tie breaker," senior
Tim Sattlemeier said. "We had ev-
eryone stand up this time and that's
why we won."
Sattlemeier was the top
Wolverine finisher in both events as
he raced to a fourth-place finish in
the giant slalom in 53.14. Matt
Turner was just .05 behind in fifth
place, and Mike Johnson took ninth
"We (Sattlemeier and Turner)
have been racing together all year. It
depends on the day who is going to
win." Sattlemeier said.
In the slalom, Sattlemeier
crossed the finish line in sixth place
in 50.72. Mike Johnson was seventh
in 51.03, and Matt Turner captured
eighth in 51.20. Gietzen rounded out
the Michigan finishers in 11th.
The Wolverine skiers have a
week off before the regional race.
They will face qualifiers from the
Lake Superior and Ohio divisions, as
well as their own. The top three
teams from regionals will continue
on to Lake Placid, New York for the

"The jury heard over and over
through the defense that he was such
a vulgar, obscene individual that any
woman with him should have been
placed on notice to what he wanted
and who he was," said Linda Pence, a
local defense attorney who attended
the two-week trial.
Courtroom observers were
struck by the fact that Tyson's at-
torneys appeared to distance them-
selves from him, rarely touching or
talking to him. Immediately after
the verdict late Monday, Tyson sat
stock-still, emotionless. His attor-
neys, appearing utterly dejected,
rested their elbows on the defense
table. None of them looked at him
and he stared straight ahead.
Lead defense attorney Vincent
Fuller rose and polled the eight-
man, four-woman jury, and each
replied, "Guilty," in a firm voice.
Several nodded their heads as they
said the word.
Tyson could be sentenced to 60
years in prison. Sentencing is sched-
uled for March 6.
"After all the evidence was
weighed, the state had a stronger
for a pre-sentencing hearing after-
case," the jury foreman said later.
"The accusing witness made a very
"This was a case about emotions
and human relationships," said
Sonja Steptoe, a lawyer and Sports
Illustrated writer. "It would have
been helpful if Tyson had looked
like a nice guy, because she was so
sweet. You hear one word and in-
stantly you fall in love with her."
If Steptoe had been running
Tyson's defense, she would have
characterized him as a tough kid
who grew up without love, without
the skills for developing relation-
ships that most people learn.
"He's a boxer. He's brutal. He's
mean. He uses power and force. Then
he become heavyweight champ, the
world is his oyster. And all these#
women are throwing themselves at
him," she said. "So then it's really
not his fault, he's on this collision
It wasn't just the failure of the
"creep defense" that brought Tyson
down, said Mike Androvett, a
lawyer and WISH-TV reporter.
