Softball goes three for eight
Women's water polo
splits at home tourney

Although the Michigan softball
team struggled to keep its goal of
building an early lead in their games
this weekend, it came away with
three victories supported by strong
pitching, while dropping five at the
National Invitational Softball Tour-
nament in Sunnyvale, Calif. UCLA
won the tournament with a 14-2
trouncing of Kansas.
The Wolverines lost in the
consolation championship to
Sacramento State (24-13) in a
pitcher's duel, 1-0. It was the second
time this weekend that Michigan
dropped a game to SSU by a 1-0
score. SSU's Amy Day (15-9) shut
out the Wolverines for the second
consecutive time this weekend,
giving up six hits, including a double
by junior Kari Kunnen, who was
named to the All-Tournament team.
Michigan sophomore pitcher Julie
Clarkson suffered her fifth loss of
the season against three victories.
The game was scoreless until SSU
scored in the last inning.
The Wolverines (12-12) made it
to the consolation championship by
capturing a victory over Oklahoma
(24-10), 1-0. In another pitcher's
duel, Michigan frosh Kelly Kovach
earned the victory by pitching a
solid 2-hitter while striking out nine
Sooners along the way. Frosh
Michelle Silver scored the decisive
run in the last inning.
Saturday night, sophomore Julie
Clarkson, Michigan's rookie of the
year last season, pitched her first
shutout of the season as the Wolver-
ines beat Nebraska, 3-0. The Wover-
ines scored two runs in the first in-
ning as senior Stacey Heams singled
in Kari Kunnen, and scored herself
when her Kunnen's sister Karla was
safe on an error. In the third inning
Michigan added another run when
Karla singled in junior Patti Bene-
In the Wolverines' 1-0 loss in
their first game with Sacramento
State, they were held to two hits by
SSU's Day. But it was a misconcep-
tion of Michigan's ability, as illus-
trated in its previous game, as they
snuffed out the fuse of the Toledo
Rockets, 8-3, with the help of
Toledo shortstop Lydia Keresztesi,
who committed three errors. Senior
Sue Sieler and Silver each had two
hits for the Wolverines.
Michigan dropped its first three
games of the weekend as its oppo-
nents in two of the games scored
early. Hawaii and No. 3 California
jumped out early en route to 8-1 and
5-4 victories, respectively. Sand-
wiched in between these contests
was a 4-3 loss to Creighton.

The Michigan women's water
polo team concluded a satisfactory
weekend in its first home tourna-
ment ever. The Wolverines defeated
two teams they were supposed to,
but the top two clubs in the tourney
had too much to handle for them.
Michigan opened play by smok-
ing Wisconsin, 11-2. Lori Barnard
and Becky Luebke led the attack
with four and three goals, respec-
tively. Michigan's other Big Ten op-
ponent was alsoteasy pickings as the
Wolverines netted an 8-4 victory
Problems arose in the Wolver-
ines' match with Slippery Rock, the
number one team in the nation.
Michigan was whipped by the
Rockets,15-4, in a rematch of a
game earlier this season. In the third
place game, Michigan lost, 7-5, to
McMaster, a Canadian team. The
Wolverines 3-1 run in the fourth
quarter was too little too late.
The two losses in the home tour-
nament did not do anything to
change Michigan coach Scott
Russell's mind that the Wolverines
have the best team in the Big Ten.
"I expect us to go to nationals
this year," Russell said. "Nothing
has changed our standing as the best
team in the Midwest."
Michigan assistant Bruce Murden
also had positive things to say
regarding his team.
"Since last week we've been im-
proving our team play," he said.
"Some of our players have caught
fire this week, and are playing in-
spiring offense and defense."
Murden said he feels the play of
Jenny McNiven, Candice Quinn,
Luebke, and goalie Karen Gorny is
brilliant. "Jenny has been outhustling
opponents, and sparking the
offense," Murden said. "She's our
most improved player this year so
Russell said he was far from sat-
isfied with the victory over Illinois.
His only comment about his defense '
was that it was "adequate."
The 15-4 thrashing by Slippery
Rock did not have Russell con-
cerned. He pointed out that his team
played fairly well after falling be-
hind, 6-0, after the first quarter.
"We started off tentative, but
finished off strong," Russell said.

and live with British Students
HOW WISC IS DIFFERENT FROM MOST OVERSEAS PROGRAMS:
" Accepted students receive admissions letters (and later
transcripts) directly from a full college of Oxford University.
" Students are direggy enrolled as full students of the Oxford
college. Qualified students who apply early may have a choice
among six full colleges: St. Catherine's, St. Edmund Hall,
Hertford, Keble, St. Antony's, and New College.
" Qualified early applicants may share a co-ed Student Residence
associated with St. Catherine's College, Oxford (fully integrated
with British students).
" Students accepted before May 1 (for next year) are guaranteed
housing with British students.
" Students will NOT be taught in (and receive transcripts from) an
American college operating in Oxford. WISC is one of the few
completely integrated (academically and in housing) overseas
programs in the UK.
" Previous students from your college or in your field will speak to
you on the phone.
