After getting back on track with a
fifth-place finish at last weekend's
17-team Purdue Boilermaker Invita-
I'ional, the Michigan women's golf
, eam will have the rest of the month
lo prepare for the Big Ten
,Conference Championships in Sav-
vy, IL, May 1-3.
The tournament begins with 36-
holes friday, followed by 18-holes
In Saturday and Sunday.
"I think we are where we want to
Ve," Michigan coach Sue LeClair
,said of the progress her team has
,nade. "We are hitting the ball well.
It's just a matter of improving our
:hipping and putting."
Senior Erica Zonder is encour-
aged by the team's improved play.
"We're looking to win, but
,realistically we'll have to play
,xcellent to do it," Zonder said. "But
a why not? We've got nothing to lose
we're going for it,
"(In the past) we have always
seemed to have one bad round, we'll
need to have four consistent rounds."
R Michigan will be paired with
Wisconsin when play begins. The
Badgers have proven themselves as
one of the better teams in the Big
:Ten and the Wolverines feel playing
with good competition will only help
them play better.
"I think it helps us concentrate
better when we are playing with a
team that is of equal ability rather
than one that is below us," LeClair
=said.
Zonder, Wendy Bigler, and
eKristen Beilstein all look to be back
,on track and Tricia Good is follow-
ing close behind.
"I'm hitting the ball well, I'm just
,not scoring well," Good said. "I'm
hoping to put it all together at Big
Tens. I'm so close. It's just the finer
points I need to work on."

'M' softball awaits:
sun, Iowa, Central

by Shawn DuFresne
Daily Sports Writer
A fortnight ago, the Michigan
softball team's doubleheader with
Eastern Michigan was postponed be-
cause of rain. The twinbill was
rescheduled for yesterday, but once
again the weather did not cooperate
with the Wolverines, forcing a sec-
ond postponement with the Eagles.
Michigan hopes for sunny skies
today as it squares off against
Central Michigan in a pair of con-
tests at Varsity Diamond.
"This is the biggest intra-state ri-
val of the year," Michigan coach
Carol Hutchins said. "We look for-
ward to it and hope we can get a
win."
Last year the Wolverines swept
the Chippewas in Mt. Pleasant, 3-0
and 6-3.
Today's games will give assis-
tant coach Cathy Wylie a chance to
show off her new team to former
coach Margo Jonker. Wylie was a
four-year starter at first base for the
Chippewas, earning All-Mideast
Regional and All-Mid-American
Conference honors three times.
Michigan continues Big Ten play
this weekend, attempting to build on
its first-place position in the confer-
ence when Iowa flies into Ann Arbor
for a pair of doubleheaders. The
Hawkeyes are in third place in the
Big Ten, sporting a 9-3 record.
Last season, the Hawkeyes swept
. & e

two doubleheaders from the Wol-
verines in Iowa City, but Hutchins
hopes the results will be different
this year.
"It's always been a tough series
with Iowa," she said. "But right now
we're playing confidently, we're
swinging our bats, and ready to go."'
The Iowa series will also give
Michigan assistant coach Carol
Bruggeman a chance to brag whdi
the Wolverines play against her col;
legiate squad. Bruggeman was an
All-Big Ten and Mideast Regional
infielder for the Hawkeyes, and
served as a graduate assistant coach
for Iowa before coming to Michigan
in 1989.
Overall, Hutchins is impressed
with her team's accomplishments,
particularly when it scored first in
three of its four games against
Indiana last weekend. I
"It has been a total team effort
Right now my team is fearless:
They have fire in their eyes, and it's
exciting to watch them."
Although Michigan sits atop tht
Big Ten, there are numerous games
left in the season.
"It's still anybody's conference it
this point," Hutchins said. "North-
western has six losses (in the Big
Ten) but swept Ohio State lash
weekend. They're still in it. They'rd
waiting to see what happens (with
the other conference games)."

First-year infielder Ryan Van Oeveren takes a cut at a pitch last week. The Wolverines travel to Central Michigan
today to take on the Chippewas before returning to Fisher Stadium to host Michigan State Saturday.
Rain postpone ments make Michigan
hitters anxiously await home game

by Tim Rardin
Daily Baseball Writer
After losing three of four games
to Indiana last weekend, dropping its
road record to four games below
.500, the Michigan baseball team
thankfully returned home to Fisher
Stadium, yesterday.
However, the Wolverines (8-8
Big Ten, 18-21 overall) did not get
what they had hoped for, namely, a
game. Rain reigned, once again,
postponing for the second time
Michigan's home clash with Eastern
Michigan (14-21). Michigan split its
two previous meetings with the
Eagles - a 9-8 loss during its spring
trip to Florida, and a 3-2 victory in
Ann Arbor three weeks ago.
Today's 3 p.m. non-conference
game at Central Michigan (18-17)
lies between the Wolverines and
their next home game, scheduled for
this weekend against Michigan
State. The Chippewas, who went 33-
27 and finished sixth in the Mid-

American Conference last year, have
split four games with the Wolverines
since Michigan coach Bill Freehan
has been at the helm.
Despite their eighth-place Big
Ten finish last year and Freehan's
unblemished 8-0 record against
them, the Spartans (11-5, 25-11),
should provide considerably stiffer
competition than the Chippewas in
their doubleheader 1 p.m., Saturday.
Michigan State, after sweeping all
four games from Northwestern last
weekend in Evanston, finds itself in
a first-place tie with Ohio State (11-
5, 25-14) in the conference, three
games ahead of Michigan.
Indiana (10-6, 29-12) holds down
second place in the conference,
while Iowa (9-7, 21-15) owns sole
control of third. The Wolverines are
locked in a three-way tie for fifth
with Purdue (8-8, 23-17), Illinois (8-

8, 25-14), and Minnesota (8-8, 22-
16).
Following Saturday's double-
header with the Spartans, Michigan
will close out its season almost en-
tirely with Big Ten games, and al-
most entirely at home.
A double-doubleheader series
with Ohio State next weekend at
Fisher Stadium precedes a rare mid-
week Big Ten confrontation, as the
Wolverines wrap up their series with
Michigan State in East Lansing. May
6. Michigan's road season concludes
with a non-conference matchup
against Notre Dame two days later.
The Wolverines' final series be-
fore the Big Ten tournament will be
against conference newcomer Penn
State (4-12, 17-19) May 10-11. The
tournament is scheduled to be played
at the home field of the regular-sea-
son champion May 14-17.
