Icers look for first-place tie
SBuckeyes nextfor Blue in mre Tuesday night affair

by Ken Sugiura
Daily Hockey Writer

If the Michigan hockey team had
any more Ohio teams scheduled, it
would probably have to call upon the
Cleveland Indians to lace up their
skates. Two weeks ago, it was
Bowling Green in a disastrous
sweep. This past weekend, the
Wolverines took a pair of games
from Miami in Yost Ice Arena.
Tonight, the Maize and Blue (16-
6-3 in the Central Collegiate Hockey
Association, 19-7-3 overall) travel
south to face the Indians' skating
equivalents, Ohio State. The Buck-
eyes have been cursed with a porous
'.efense (5.87 goals against average)
and the worst record in the CCHA
(4-16-5, 8-16-5).
Meanwhile, someone has been
smiling upon the No. 3 Wolverines,
who, with a win tonight, would
move into a first-place tie with Lake
Superior State with identical 17-6-3
ledgers.
"We've had a game in hand all

year on Lake Superior," Wolverine
forward David Oliver said. "We've
been two points back a few times, so
this is our chance to finally pull
even."
The last opportunity Michigan
had to force a deadlock at the top
came two weekends ago vs. Bowling
Green. The Lakers stood a point
ahead of the Wolverines, but a pair
of disappointing losses to the then
last-place Falcons dashed any
chance for a takeover.
Michigan's prospects stand much
brighter tonight. The Falcons were a
better team than their cellar dwelling
indicated, and their victory and tie
over Michigan State and rise to sev-
enth provide solid evidence.
The Buckeyes, on the other hand,
have no such support. They have
been victims of duplicate 9-3 thrash-
ings at the hands of the Wolverines,
and have had winless streaks of eight
and 10 games.
Figures such as these must look

appetizing in the eyes of the vora-
cious Wolverines, who poured in 18
goals against Miami this weekend,
their season-high for a series. Oliver
and linemates Brian Wiseman and
Denny Felsner catalyzed the feast,
Oliver racking up two goals and five
assists.
"It's just working hard," Oliver
said. "The harder you work, the bet-
ter things are going to turn out for
you."
The Wolverines' work habits
have been a thorn in their side all
season, appearing comatose at times
and Calvinist at others. Michigan
coach Red Berenson is eager to put
Michigan's collective nose to the
grindstone in OSU Ice Rink, which
has a relatively small ice surface.
"It's a dump-and-chase rink,"
Berenson said. "You really have to
fight to get out of your own zone,
you fight to get in the other team's
zone, and you have to work hard in
the corners."

'Cam Stewart and the Wolverines will take on Ohio State in Columbus. Michigan will attempt to tie Lake
Superior for first place in the CCHA.

The Michigan women's tennis
team suffered a disappointing 6-3
toss to Miami University, in Oxford,
Ohio this weekend. The defeat came
only a week before the team's
opening conference match of the
1992 season. Michigan coach Bitsy
Ritt explained that the Wolverine's
performance was hindered by sev-
eral factors.
"The matchups really worked in
their favor," Ritt said. "The teams
don't have to have their lineups in
Intil a half hour before the match,
and we are committed to them. The
styles of play worked to (Miami's)
advantage."
In addition, the Michigan players
could not adjust to the type of court
the matches were played on.
"I'm not making excuses for (the
results), but the courts here at the
Track and Tennis building are slow
and the courts we played on against
Miami were lightning fast," Ritt
said. "Miami's players were used to
it."
In singles, Ritt felt Michigan
played well in three of the five
matches. Wolverine junior Kim Pratt
played to a 6-4, 6-2 victory over
Miami's Dale Cohen at the No. 4

singles position. First-year player
Liz Cyganiak defeated Miami's
Laurie Vetter, 6-2, 6-3, to secure an-
other victory at No. 6 singles.
Another Michigan rookie, Jamie
Fielding, was up 5-2 in the second
set, but Miami's Brooke Bruder
pulled out the victory, 6-3, 7-5, at
No. 3 singles.
"We really had to split the singles
in order to gain control of the
match," Ritt said. "Its tough to ex-
pect all three doubles to pull it off."
The other singles matches were
not as successful. "We fought hard
in the other three matches but were
outplayed," Ritt said.
Michigan's No. 1 singles, junior
Kalei Beamon, lost to Miami's
Nicole Catalano, 6-0, 6-2. Senior co-
captain Amy Malik was defeated at
the No. 2 position by Miami's Amy
Boyle, 6-2, 6-3. Sophomore transfer
Allison Schlonsky lost to Miami's
Jeanne Baker at No. 5 singles, 6-1,
6-3.
Michigan captured only one dou-
bles match at the meet.
Wolverines Pratt and Fielding
teamed at No. 1 doubles to post the
only doubles victory for Michigan.
Miami's Boyle and Catalano were
forced to injury retire after Boyle
sprained her ankle with the score 3-

6, 6-2. Pratt and Fielding had gained
control of the match in the second
set.
At No. 2 doubles, Michigan's
Beamon and Cyganiak-were down 4-
1 in the second set and fought back
to 4-3, but ended up falling to
Miami's Bruder and Cohen, 6-2, 6-3.
No. 3 doubles could have gone
either way. Michigan's Freddy
Adam and Malik had a chance to
serve for the first set, but lost it 7-5.
In the second set, they rallied back
from 5-2 to 6-5 and served for the
set but ended up losing in a
tiebreaker, 7-3.
"Miami played great tennis while
we played up and down," Ritt said.
"No. 3 singles and No. 3 doubles
could have gone either way."
With two important matches
coming up against Northwestern and
Wisconsin, the Wolverines were
hoping for a stronger showing to
give them more confidence going
into Big Ten competition.
"We're coming home now but we
are going to have to play better (than
we did against Miami)," Ritt said.
"We're not discouraged - it's more
of a motivator for this coming
weekend."

We're looking for a few good college students and graduates who
can fill the shoes of a Marine Corps officer. That's a pretty tall order.
It means leading other Marines. Being responsible for their
well being. But that's something no civilian job offers you at 26.
If you think you're a real company man, see your
Marine Corps Officer Selection Officer for details.

MAen runners struggle
to achieve expectations

by Bruce Inosencio
Daily Sports Writer

'Disappointment' is the one-word
summary of this past weekend's per-
formance by the men's indoor track
team. Iowa City was not kind to the
Wolverines, as they placed sixth in a
field of 14 teams at the Central
Collegiate Championships. Cross-
town rival Eastern Michigan won the
meet, Purdue was a surprising sec-
ond and Michigan State ran its way
to third place.
In the field events, Brad Darr and
Dan Reddan led the way for
Michigan once again. In the pole
vault, Darr cleared 16' 9". Reddan
leaped 6' 9" in the high jump.
Michigan coach Jack Harvey was
pleased with the performances of
both Darr and Reddan but expressed
concern toward the team's perfor-
mance as a whole.
"Darr and Reddan both looked
better this past weekend than they
have recently," Harvey said. "But I
thought we would be running better

by now and we just aren't."
Gregg Duffy ran well in the 600
meters, capturing third place by
crossing the line in one minute and
twenty seconds.
The Wolverines were forced to
clear several obstacles to even finish
as high as sixth. Michigan relies
heavily on its distance runners for
points, and two of Michigan's better
distance runners, Joe McKown and
Dan Oden, were both recovering
from the flu. Both competed, but
their times suffered.
Michigan also experienced some
mishaps placing one foot in front of
another. Ian Forsyth and Nick
Karfonta were both tripped and fell
to the ground. Karfonta was unable
to finish the 800, while Forsyth fell
on the first leg of the distance med-
ley relay.
Michigan will have to keep their
footing this weekend at the Eastern
Michigan Invitational if they intend
to make strides and prove more suc-
cessful.
