Heams' sights on Big Ten title

by Meg Beison
Daily Sports Writer
The 1989 Rookie of the Year,
1991 Co-Outstanding Player, and
1992 Co-Captain.
Senior right fielder Stacey Heams
has accomplished some great things
in her four-year Michigan softball
career. There is one more thing she
hopes to do before leaving the field
in her final season - lead the
Wolverines to a Big Ten title.
"I definitely think we have a shot
to win the Big Ten this year," Heams
said.
The Wolverines (8-2 Big Ten,
22-16 overall) are leading the league
as they head to Indiana (10-6 Big
Ten) for four crucial games this
weekend.
Heams cites the strong
contribution of her new teammates,
along with solid leadership from the
seniors, as two important keys to the
team's success, but believes it goes
much deeper than that.
"Our team is different from other
teams on campus," Heams said.
"We're like a family and we help
each other out. The coaches are
great. They are willing to help with
everything. There's a lot of support."
Heams has overcome several
obstacles to achieve the status she
has today. She battled fears of

coming to the University of
Michigan, and two years later made
a remarkable comeback from arm
surgery.
"I was scared to death to come
here because it's so big," Heams
said. "I wasn't sure if I was smart
enough because the top 10 students
in my class came here."
Heams, who attended Bedford
High School in Temperance, Mich.,

doing her student teaching in the
fall.
"I love it here, but it's a
challenge," Heams said. "I had some
teachers (in high school) who didn't
think I would make it and I wanted
to prove something."
Heams also proved that she
would not let arm surgery stop her.
The surgery, which was performed
to alleviate pain caused by overuse,
kept Heams out of action for almost
half of her sophomore season.
"It was hard just sitting there, but
I'm glad I did it," Heams said. "It
still gets sore, but it definitely feels
better since the surgery."
In her junior year, Heams
rebounded to win the team's co-
outstanding player award along with
second team All-Big Ten senior
Julie Cooper. Heams hit .280 with
five extra-base hits and 12 RBI,
including three game-winners, and
also stole 13 bases in 14 attempts.
"I couldn't believe I was co-MVP
with a senior. It was a total shock
and it was really exciting," Heams
said.
Along with receiving that team
honor, Heams has compiled
countless great memories, too many,
she says, to name a favorite.
Heams recalled her first year,

when the Wolverines won the
National Invitational Softball
Tournament which featured some of
the top softball powerhouses in the
nation. The team's hopes of winning
the Big Ten fell short that year by
just one game. However, Heams
went on to win the Michigan rookie-
of-the-year award by leading the
team's outfielders with 49 put outs.
Heams accomplished yet another
one of her goals by getting a hit off
Cal-Berkeley pitcher Michelle
Granger in the NIST earlier this
season. Granger, who pitched for
both the 1987 and 1991 Pan-Am
gold medal winning softball squads,
is one of the top hurlers in the
nation.
Heams is happy with the
performance of the team so far this
season. She praised the improve-
ments made by the pitching staff
since the start of the season, but
Heams will not be totally satisfied
until the Wolverines are in the
number-one spot in the conference at
the end of the season.
Big Ten opponents have need to
worry, because when Heams sets her
mind on something, she has been
able to do whatever it takes to get it
done.

A successful fall season includ-
ing two tournament victories had
given the Michigan women's golf
team great expectations for its spring
season.
However, a 14th-place finish in
the Wolverines' opener at the South
Carolina Invitational followed by a
14th-place finish at the Indiana In-
vitational two weeks ago left them

with many questions and little time
to try to answer them.
Tomorrow and Sunday, Michigan
will travel to Purdue to play at the
Purdue University Invitational. The
17-team field will provide the Wol-
verines with their final test before
the Big Ten Conference Champion-
ships, May 1-3.
"We're just looking to get back
on track," Michigan coach Sue
LeClair said. "We're not happy with
the results so far."
The root of the Wolverine's
problems can be attributed to a lack
of practice time due to the unusually
cold spring weather. With last
weekends' open date and an im
provement in the weather, Michigan
has been able to hit the fairways to
prepare for this weekend.
The Wolverines are led by junior
Wendy Bigler and senior Kristin
Beilstein who carry respective 81.8
and 81.9 season stroke average into
Purdue. Senior Erica Zonder, junior
Tricia Good, and rookie Jenny
Zimmerman will complete the Mich-
igan fivesome.
