Trifecta. That was' the word of
the night at Oosterbaan Field House
The Michigan field hockey team
(2-4 Big Ten, 7-7 overall) faced the
University of the Pacific and came
away with a much needed 5-3 win.
The Wolverines were led by their
top two scorers - Kalli Hose and
Katie Thomas. Hose came up with
her first career hat trick, and Thomas
added three points, including one
goal. After a month-long hiatus from
the win column, Wolverine coach
Patti Smith was excited about the
"I was really glad to get a win,"
Smith said. "Finally, the spell is bro-
ken. This was a really good confi-
dence booster. We played strong as a
team, and the first half was great."
Michigan scored quickly as Hose
put her first goal of the game past
Tiger goalie Angela Teran. It came
less than three minutes into the con-
test and gave the team an early lead.
Michigan dominated the first half
allowing only one goal and four
"We played really well in the
first half," Hose said. "It seemed
really easy to play. We were really

Pacific tied the score at 1-1 with
23 minutes left in the first half. Less
than a minute later, Hose put Michi-
gan up for good on a direct corner.
Hose took a pass from her sister
Lelli and rocketed a shot into the
Tiger net. Thomas also received an
assist on the goal.
"The corner didn't really work as
it was supposed to," Kalli said. "It
was supposed to go back to Katie
(Thomas), but the pass was blocked
off. Lelli dumped it in, and I was
there. It's nice to make something
work when it doesn't go as
After two Michigan goals, Hose
was able to finish off her hat trick
with less than two minutes left in the
"I had been in a slump and was
sick last weekend," Hose said. "I'm
pleased to be playing well again.
When we're not scoring, I know I
need to try to pick up the slack and
help keep the pressure off the
Thomas also had three points on
the night. In addition to her assist on
Hose's second goal, she assisted
Jennifer Lupinski's goal and scored
Michigan's third goal of the night.
"It was impressive to see them

said. "They made a good effort

Champagne anyone? Or maybe,

cross country team hopes to return
home from the Big Ten champi-

ing a victory.
The seventh-ranked women har-
riers left at 8 a.m. this morning on
their way to Champaign and the Big

in contention for the Big Ten crown.

"The athletes are progressing
well and will be ready to go on
Saturday," he said. "We have people
who have been there before and can
help the team with their experience."
The team will feel a definite loss
due to the injury of all-American
Amy Bucholz. Bucholz injured her
knee and was listed day-to-day
throughout the week, but will be un-
able to run.
The team will miss Bucholz, but
McGuire thinks the Wolverines can
"Filling in for Bucholz is a tall
order to fill," he said. "Anytime you
take an all-American out of the line-
up, you're going to miss them. But
I'm confident in whatever team we
take to the Big Tens. We still have a
lot of people to get it done on the
course and the athletes feel the same
Chris Szabo, who will be a major
contributor on Saturday, agrees with
"We're going to miss Amy, but
we knew all week that she might not
be able to run," she said. "We have a
lot of other talented people that can
step up and get the job done."
Even though Bucholz cannot run,
she is supporting her teammates.
The team enjoyed a pre-meet
dinner at Cottage Inn to relax a little.
Karen Harvey felt that was a
must and states, "we're excited, but
we're saving energy for the meet and
trying to lay low."
Jessica Kluge holds the same

Harvey, Szabo and Kluge. Molly
McClimon, Courtney Babcock,
Kelly Chard, Katy Holbacher, Molly
Laurie and Mayre Richards finish
out the roster. The team hopes to re-
turn Saturday night able to celebrate.
"It's unfortunate I can't run, but
I'm playing it by ear," Bucholz said.
"I want to be back as soon as possi-
ble so I can help the team and get
ready for Districts in two weeks. I'm
trying not to let it get to me."
The course to be run in Illinois is
mainly flat, which will result in~
faster times. If the race is close, it
could be decided at the wire. In
preparation for this, workouts were
tapered during practice. Szabo feels
the team is ready.

Michigan and the rest of the Big
Ten men's cross country teams will
be trying to break a long winning
streak this weekend at the conference
championships in Champaign.
That winning streak belongs to
nationally-ranked No. 3 Wisconsin,
who will be looking for its eighth
consecutive conference champi-
onship. The Badgers dominated last
year's championship meet by captur-
ing the top three places and are heav-
ily favored to win this year's race.
No. 16 Penn State and No. 14
Michigan will pose the biggest
threat to the Badgers.
The championship will be held at
the Savoy Golf Course in Cham-
paign. The course is adjacent to an
airfield. Therefore, there are no hills
on the course.
"The course is flat, like running
on a track," Michigan coach Ron
Warhurst said. "If it's windy that's
going to change the tactics a little
Michigan needs a big improve-
ment to stay near the lead with
"We can improve 15 to 20 per-
cent, but you're not going to im-
prove 70 to 80 percent in one week's
time," said Warhurst. "I'd be a very
happy person if we did."
Leading the way for the
Wolverines will be senior Matt
Smith. Smith has already won three
meets this year and will be looking
to finish strong in Champaign. He
finished 11th in last year's race.
"We're not trying to dwell on any
past races," said Smith. "We're just

week and we've worked more on
speed," Szabo said. "We're more
rested and that will help us going in.
If we run as well as we have in the
past we should be fine. We have one
of the best women's cross country
going from Michigan in a long time.
We have a lot of depth and we're .
trying to go out there and do the best
we can and have fun with it."
Also competing for Michigan are
senior Chris Childs, juniors Shawn
Mackay and Jay Schemanske,
sophomores Jim Finlayson, Ian
Forsyth, Robert Lee and freshmen.
Scott MacDonald and Theo Molla.
"If everyone runs their race, we
can win it," said Smith."We're just
going to go out there and do what
we can do and whatever happens,,
The sophomore and freshmen,
runners, who compose two-thirds of
the team going to Illinois, point to-
ward a bright future for Michigan

said Smith. "If it's not opened this
year it's going to be passed on to
one of the younger guys. It's been a
great tradition the last couple of
years, but wouldn't it be nice to
open champagne in Champaign?"
