Rugby all-stars falter after no-show

by Rachel Bachman
If showing up is half the battle,
then the women's rugby team that
should have represented the East at
the Philadelphia Pumpkin Fest last
weekend was at a big disadvantage.
The dedication of eastern schools
to women's rugby has been ques-
tioned in recent years. And after
what took place this weekend, the
criticism may be more valid. What
should have been the championship
game between the Midwest and East
Select teams became a challenging
exhibition match for the Midwest.
"The East Select Side team that
we were supposed to play didn't
come," said wing forward Kelly
Caldwell, one of Michigan's eight
select team representatives. As a re-
sult, the Midwest Select team was
forced to play a club team from
Rochester, N.Y., and the all-star
squad was shutout, 17-0.
"We were playing way, way
above our level," Caldwell said.
Despite the loss to an older and
much more experienced team, the

Wolverines scored a victory simply
by earning the right to play
Rochester.
"All of the women from
Michigan who went to the tourna-
ment qualified for the select team,"
Caldwell said. The eight-woman
contingent of Wolverines was the
largest of any midwestern team and
surpassed by three the number se-
lected from Michigan last year.
Two qualifying matches, played
Saturday, were judged by Bryn
Chivers, former Michigan women's
rugby coach and current coach of a
Chicago club team. The Wolverines
vied with the best players from other
area collegiate teams for a chance to
represent the Midwest.
"Only the people who expected
to qualify for the select team came,"
Caldwell said. She stressed that the
numbers were low, but the quality of
athletes was high.
"We represented the Midwest
well," Michigan wing Jenny
Chelune said. "When you can put
experienced people together on one

team, you learn better. You play on
a higher level."
In addition to providing competi-
tion, the Pumpkin Fest also gave
Michigan's representatives a chance
to practice fundamentals. Saturday
clinics, coached by Chivers,
schooled players on such rugby-spe-
cific topics as rucking.
Rucking is, according to
Caldwell, "a technique to drive op-
ponents off the ball to gain
possession, while the ball is on the
ground."
While the tournament provided
the Wolverines with individual ex-
perience and a chance to hone their
skills in the English sport, they look
forward to returning to team play.
"Last weekend was much more
of an individual thing," Caldwell
said. "We will feel much more like
we're representing Michigan this
coming weekend."
The Wolverines next take on
Kentucky and Illinois in hopes of
qualifying for the upcoming Nation-
al Collegiate Rugby Tournament.

finish
strong
by Jaeson Rosenfeld
Daily Sports Writer
Michigan women's golf coach
Sue LeClair is bullish on the future.
No, she is not talking about the
Dow Jones, but the upward trend of
the Wolverines in the fall golf sea-
son. Michigan placed second to
Methodist in this weekend's James
Madison University Invitational,
notching its highest finish of the
season.
"We've went from fifth, to
fourth, to second," said LeClair of
her team's finishes in the last three
tournaments of the season. "After
getting knocked out of third place at
the Ohio State tournament, the girls
really wanted to finish well."
LeClair was pleased with what
she called "a team effort on every-
one's part," as the Wolverines shot
identical team rounds of 325 in the
tournament. While Michigan fell 12
strokes behind Division III national
champion Methodist after the first
day, the Wolverines second-round
325 was the day's low round.
LeClair attributes her team's final
round success to better preparation.
"The scores were higher on the
second day because of the pin
placements," she said. "We played
better because our kids are used to
tough placements on our course."
Co-captain Wendy Bigler fin-
ished second individually with a 36-
hole total of 159 on the 5,929-yard,
par-72 Golf Club of Staunton. After
struggling the first two meets of the
season, Bigler led the Wolverines
for the second straight week. She
says her turnaround is a result of a
swing adjustment she made at the
Lady Buckeye Fall Invitational two
weeks ago.
"I just wasn't turning all the way
back," the senior said. After Bigler
loosened up her swing, lower scores
followed.
The Wolverines also benefited
from the emergence of Maura
Hawkins. After a first-round 85, the
senior shot a final-round 77, the low
round of the day.
"The first eight holes I played
about the same as the first round. I
chipped in from a sand trap on nine,
and that really helped boost my
confidence," Hawkins said.
Teammate Shannon McDonald
finished tied with Hawkins in sev-
enth, while Jenny Zimmerman was
15th and Tricia Good was 21st.

For the second week in a row, the
Michigan men's cross-country team
fell short to Eastern Michigan
University. The Eagles captured the
Michigan Intercollegiates with 38
points by sweeping the top three
places, while the Wolverines placed
second with 65.
Scott MacDonald led the
Wolverines, finishing in 25:26 to
place him fifth overall. Jim
Finlayson, the second Wolverine
harrier in 25:37, took seventh. These
two runners made a wrong turn with
about a mile left in the race and were
forced to backtrack in order to return
to the course.
"The front pack missed a turn
late in the race," Finlayson said.
"The course was very poorly marked

so I did not know which way to run.
I saw the front pack go straight and
the two CMU (Central Michigan)
runners in front of me turned right. I
thought that they were just trying to
cut the course, so I went straight and
followed the front pack. The mistake
probably cost us three or four points
at the most."
Chris Childs performed well
again, finishing 13th overall in
25:42. Shawn Mackay, Theo Molla
and Sean Sweat captured 18th
through 20th places, respectively.
Carlos Paradelo and Jay
Schemanske had strong
performances in their first varsity
meets.
The team missed the front-run-
ning skills of Matt Smith, who sat
out this weekend's contest in order
to take the GRE exam, and Jason
Colvin, who rested his nagging in-
juries. Their return, along with the
development of the younger runners,
bodes well for the future of the
squad.
"Things are starting to come
around," Finlayson said. "We had a
much better performance Saturday.
This team is learning to work to-
gether, and once we have Smith and
Jason Colvin back in the lineup, we
will be more powerful. We ran
better on the whole, but there is
room for a lot of improvement.".
