SOCCER
Continued from page 13
The Wolverines have relied upon
the improved play of freshman Rick
Weinberg. His all out hustle led to a
number of scoring opportunities in
the Schoolcraft game.
The rookie's tenacious play on
the offensive end has been a wel-
comed surprise with the injuries to
the veterans. Michigan's depth has
shown through, as the younger
players have picked up the slack.
Smith seems to sense that the youth
movement is developing quickly,

and the reserves are beginning to as-
sert themselves.
"We more or less have two start-
ing teams with all of our depth,"
Smith said. "If eleven people were
hurt we could still field a good
team."
The starters are also gaining
confidence in the play of the new-
comers.
"We had a strong game from
Rick Weinberg who filled in for
Kelly in the Schoolcraft game," Sad-
japour said. "Dave Costello also
played well and will be seeing a lot
more action."

'M' women runners
trot to Notre Dame

by Tonya Board
The Michigan women's cross
country team hopes to find a little of
the luck of the Irish this weekend,
when the Wolverines travel to Notre
Dame, Ind. for a 19-team invita-
tional.
South Dakota State returns as de-
fending champion of the invitational,
which Michigan is appearing in for
the first time. Wolverine coach Mike
McGuire is looking forward to the
new experience the meet will offer
his team.
"We've had some success up to
this point and have been showing
improvement," he said. "This meet
will be a great measuring stick for
the Big Tens. With good weather,
we should post great times."
McGuire is counting on co-cap-
tains Amy Buchholz and Molly
McClimon to lead the team. Chris

Szabo, Karen Harvey, Kelly Chard,
Katy Hollbacher and Courtney Bab-
cock are also expected to contribute.
"Molly is coming off knee
surgery, but had her strongest race
of the year (so far) against MSU.
We rested Katy and Courtney last
week so their legs should be strong,"
he said.
The team plans to use that leg *
strength to dominate the invitational.
"We're hoping to win to get our
rankings up," Babcock said. "We
want to beat Notre Dame, who has
improved from last year. We'll stay
in a pack of five or seven to pace
each other. We want to place our tro
five runners ahead of the first Notre
Dame runner."
McGuire hopes the team's added
experience should give it a better W
idea of its ability, and help it prepare
for the Big Tens.

The Michigan men's cross coun-
try team travels to South Bend, Ind.
today to compete in the Notre Dame
Invitational. Although there will be
15 teams present, the Wolverines'
main competition will come from
No. 6 Notre Dame and No. 22 East-
ern Michigan.
While Michigan is ranked No. 8
nationally, senior Matt Smith has
kept the team from getting excited
about its status. Unlike past teams,
this year's squad avoids looking too
far down the road.
Smith Leads the young squad
both by relaying his experiences and
by the example he sets. The team
keys off of him in practice and-in the
races.

"Each of these early races help
our team build unity and gain confi-
dence. We can use these meets as
stepping stones to the Big Ten
meet," he said. "We should do just
fine."
Cross country meets are scored
by adding up the finishing places of
each team's top five runners, and the
team with the lowest point total i
the winner. This makes it crucial foT
a team to not only have a front-run-
ner, but also a minimal gap between:
that first and fifth runner.
At last weekend's competition, a
30-second gap existed between the
Wolverines' first and second runner.
"I told the team in our meeting
today that we need to close the gap,
between Matt (Smith) and our sec-
ond runner," Michigan coach Ron.
Warhurst said. "It is important for us
to run up front early so that we are
in position to run stronger in the
middle of the race."
Last weekend, EMU swept sec-
ond through fourth places with Do-
minic Middleton finishing just four
seconds behind Smith. The Wolver-
ines face another stiff challenge to-
day, as Notre Dame's two all-Amer-
icans, Mike McWilliams and John*
Coyle, should push the pace of the
race.
Today's Michigan lineup consists
of Smith, Jim Finlayson, Chris
Childs, Ian Forsyth, Sean Sweat, and
the freshmen duo of Theo Molla and
Scott MacDonald.
"It is good to get a chance to see
them (Notre Dame) before the dis-
tricts. We can take them," Sweat
said.
