At the beginning of this season,
the Michigan women's volleyball
team talked of joining the elite class
of NCAA teams. This weekend's
competition in the Conference
Challenge in Lexington, Ky., will
provide an excellent chance for the
team to fulfill such preseason
Competing with Michigan this
weekend in the Conference Chal-
lenge will be Kentucky, Maryland
and Miami (Ohio).
The Wolverines feature a new
coach, former U.S. National Team
assistant coach Greg Giovanazzi. He
hopes to continue to point the
Wolverines in the upward direction
that former coach and current asso-
ciate athletic director Peggy
Bradley-Doppes had them headed.
Giovanazzi brings plenty of ex-
perience to the coaching position. In
addition to his duties for the U.S.
National Team, he has been assistant
coach for the men's and women's'
volleyball teams at UCLA from
1981-1990, as well as the Hawaii
men's volleyball team in 1980. He
was also a head coach for the San
Jose Golddiggers Women's Profes-
sional Volleyball team in 1989.
Besides his previous coaching
duties, Giovanazzi has also had play-
ing experience. He competed for
UCLA from 1976-1978 and played
professionally in 1979 for a team in
Rome in the Italian League.
The Wolverines have risen their
level of play steadily from the team
of two years ago that went 6-25 and

even from last year's team that had a
19-12 record and finished in a tie for
sixth in the Big Ten. So far, under
Giovanazzi, they have stormed
through their competition this year,
chalking up six wins in eight games.
Anchoring this year's team is
outside hitter Michelle Horrigan. An
all-Big Ten second team selection as
a sophomore last year, she is second
in the nation this year in kills-per-
game. Junior JoAnna Collias, a de-
fensive specialist who is second in
the Big Ten in digs, is another stand-
out at the outside hitter position. In
addition to Horrigan and Collias,
seniors Hayley Lorenzen and Chris
White provide Michigan with strong
Senior setter Tarnisha Thompson,
third in, the Big Ten in hitting
efficiency, and sophomore middle
blocker Aimee Smith are several
others of the many noteworthy
players on the team.

The Michigan field hockey team
will take its 2-1 record to Mt.
Pleasant Sunday for a match with
Central Michigan. Fresh from a 2-0
win at Rutgers Monday, the team is
primed for its first game in the
"We want to push our speed and
endurance against Central and con-
centrate on ourselves," Michigan
coach Patti Smith said. "We need to
think about what we are doing and
what our roles are. We did a good
job of that at Rutgers."
The Chippewas have started the
season 0-2, but Smith thinks this
week's game will be a good contest.
Last year, the Wolverines blanked
CMU, 1-0, in Ann Arbor.
"They are always a tough game,"
Smith said. "Anytime a MAC (Mid
American Conference) school takes
on a Big Ten school they get up for
it. We have had a lot of tough games
Smith indicated that the keys to
winning will be maintaining aggres-
sive play on both ends of the field.
"Offensively, we need to take
lots of shots and attack the ball. We
need to create as many scoring op-
portunities as possible," Smith said.
