'M' icers
by Chad A. Safran
Daily Hockey Writer
After last season's disap-
pointing final loss to Wisconsin in
the NCAA semifinals, the Mich-
igan hockey team had six months
to look back and reflect upon what
went wrong. The redemption
process has begun as practice
officially got underway yesterday
at Yost Ice Arena.
Although the players have been
skating on their own for the past
two weeks, Monday was the first
day that Michigan coach Red
Berenson and the rest of his staff
were allowed to be on the ice
instructing his players, under
NCAA guidelines. Berenson gave
his team a mixed grade for the
season's opening practice.
"I would give them an 'A'
based on effort," said Berenson,
now beginning his ninth year at
the helm of the Wolverines. "They
would get a 'C' for execution, but
that takes time and that's why we
have practice."
Junior defensemen Aaron
Ward agreed with Berenson's
"It went pretty well," Ward
said. "It waspthe first time for
everything. The skating was look-
ing pretty good, but we were off
on our passing. We were not
reaching each other's sticks with
our passes. "
Usually several non-scholar-
ship students show up on the first
day of practice in an effort to
make the squad. Last year, with
the combination of scholarship
athletes and those attempting to
walk on, 40 players were on the

Mixed signals for blue golfers
Women fall to Big Ten foes, finish fourth in Lady Buckeye

by Jaeson Rosenfeld
A rain cloud has covered the
Michigan women's golf team's first-
round action for the last two compe-
titions this season. When it finally
got on the course at the Lady Buck-
eye Fall Invitational, the Wolverines
faced another set of clouds - the
clouds of inconsistency.
After having a successful
Saturday in which the Wolverines
were forced to play 36 holes due to
the weather problems, Michigan
could not repeat its performance on
Sunday. With a third-round score of
338, the Wolverines dropped from
third to fourth place, allowing Notre
Dame to sneak ahead while Ohio
State took the title.
Senior Wendy Bigler led
Michigan's first-day surge with a
36-hole total of 157. The co-captain
was pleased with her play after
struggling at Michigan State a week
"At State I didn't hit the ball
well," Bigler said. "The first day
here I hit the ball the best I have in a
tournament this year."
In addition to Bigler, senior
Maura Hawkins 36-hole total of 164
also boosted the Wolverines. Mich-
igan coach Sue LeClair thinks that
Hawkins has finally got herself back
on track after shooting poorly in her
first two meets.
"She has been listening to some
relaxation tapes that have really
helped," LeClair said. "Her mind is
focused a little better."
Because of the Wolverines early

performance, Michigan's golfers
were paired with Big Ten powers
Ohio State and Indiana in the final
round. LeClair thought this played a
factor in her team's bloated Sunday
scores. "I think we were intimidated
playing with Ohio State and Indiana
for the first time," LeClair said.

Despite Michigan's inconsis-
tency, LeClair is still convinced that
her team can compete against the
class of the Big Ten.
"They definitely have the ability
to play at their (Indiana and Ohio
State's) level," LeClair said. "They
just have to think they can."

Lyle's third-place sparks men at NIT

by Paul Barger
What a difference two days make.
After one round of play at the
Northern Intercollegiate Tournament,
the Michigan men's golf team was a
disappointing 12th out of 20 teams,
and sophomore Bill Lyle was 18th,
sitting five strokes behind the leader.
The Wolverines, however, took a
turn for the better on Saturday and
Sunday. Michigan managed to make
up six spots to finish in sixth place,
and Lyle closed with a strong per-
formance to finish third individually,
two strokes off the pace.
Michigan coach Jim Carras hopes
that this comeback will lead to suc-
cess for the rest of the season.
"We started off very poorly and I
don't think it was reflective of our
team," Carras said. "The conclusion
I was satisfied with. Coming back is
a credit to the kids."
All eleven Big Ten schools
(including Penn State) participated in
the event. Only three of those
schools managed to finish ahead of

the Wolverines.
The real story of the weekend,
however, was not the play of the.
team, but of Lyle. Michigan's No. 2
golfer shot rounds of 74, 71 and 73,
for a 218 total.
"Billy Lyle I was very, very
pleased and impressed with," Carras
said. "He played like a veteran senior
and he is only a sophomore. He cer-
tainly played well enough to win
this tournament, and it was a very
solid field."
In addition to Lyle's strong
showing, senior co-captain Anthony
Dietz (77-74-77-225) regained his
composure after a rough first round
and fought his way to 27th place.
This Saturday the team will try
to keep the momentum going at the
Buckeye Invitational in Columbus.
"For the first tournament I am
not unhappy at all. It was a good,
solid field," Carras said. "I expect
improvement next week and I really
think that we can be competitive in
the conference."

Michigan forwards Mark Ouimet (forefront) and David Roberts celebrate a
goal last season. Official practice began yesterday for the squad.

ice for the first session. This year,
only one has come out to show his
skills - Chris Wakabayashi,
who's father Mel played for
Michigan from 1964-66.
The lack of extras gives
Berenson help in deciding on
"It's good that were not
evaluating a lot of unknowns,"
Berenson said. "We've got enough
inner competition here. The first
practice is an indication of what
kind of summer (the players had).
Obviously, the players who
worked real hard this summer in
dry-land training look better on
the ice and are in better shape, but
you can do a lot of running and
weightlifting but it is not the same
as being on the ice."

Ward is one of those players
who's off-season training has been
a benefit.
"I'm in better shape this year,
considering the past," he said.
"Practice is a lot different than a
game. (Practice) is non-stop. The
drills are continuous. If you are
not feeling bad after practice, then
you haven't worked out hard.
Coach ran us pretty hard today. "
Over the next several days, be-
sides practice, Berenson has some
extra planning to do.
"We have to get setup working
on systems and things we expect
our team to do. We don't have a
long time." In fact the Wolverines'
first game is this Friday night at
7:00 p.m. when the annual Blue-
White Intrasquad game takes place
at Yost. Tickets are $2.00.
