"As often as I can, you know, I'll

says, adding that he will be back for
games at Crisler Arena whenever he

He says he'll certainly be in West

Kickers fall short at Big Tens
by Mike Hill
Daily Sports Writer
Someone forgot to tell the author
this is not how the script was sup-
posed to read.
The Michigan women's soccer
club wasn't supposed to have prob-
lems at the 5th Midwest (Big Ten)
Championships in Columbus. The
Wolverines weren't supposed to
have problems reaching the Cham-
pionship finals and receiving a sec-
ond straight bid to the national club
soccer championships held in
Austin, Texas, Nov. 29-30.
But they did.
The Wolverines expected their
toughest challenge of the weekend
would come in their opening game
against Penn State. The Nittany Li-
ons jumped to an early 1-0 lead, but
keeper Crissy Rice and the Michigan
defense kept the Lions off the score-
board for the remainder of the game.
Sophomore Lynda Hart took a
pass from senior Jenny Steinhebel
and booted a goal to knot up the
contest. Steinhebel later scored the
game winner on a penalty kick.
"It was a really physical game
and we just got the penalty at the
right time," Michigan defenseman
Kim Chenet said. "We were really
relieved after winning this one."
But the Wolverines' luck soon
ran out. Michigan drew little-known
Minnesota in its second game. The
Wolverines didn't play the Golden
Gophers during the regular season
and it probably cost them.
Michigan's potent offense un-
characteristically had difficulty con-
trolling the ball. Leading scorer Lisa
Ashton scored the lone Michigan
goal in a 2-1 loss.
"(Minnesota) had a lot of team
speed," Chenet said. "They were
pretty physical. They had the ball in
our end for most of the game. It was
The Wolverines figured a victory
over Purdue yesterday morning
might encourage the holders of the
national club championships to in-
vite them to the event despite failing
to reach the Big Ten finals. But
those hopes were quickly diffused.
Purdue came out with a ven-
geance and shut out the Wolverines,
1-0, ending any hope of a national-
"I thought we dominated the
game, but it just didn't happen for
us," Chenet said. "Because we went
so far last year, we earned a reputa-
tion. And Purdue came out psyched
to go against Michigan. We didn't
play poorly and we played hard. The
ball just didn't go our way."
The disappointing weekend
capped an otherwise successful 16-
7-5 campaign. The Wolverines can
look forward to the upcoming indoor
and spring seasons. But this short-
ened season will sting for a while.
Vignevic rescues stickers - twice
by Sharon Lundy
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan field hockey team's victory last
Thursday over University of the Pacific was, as it had
hoped, the start of a five-game winning streak. The
Wolverines defeated both Kent State and Boston Col-
lege this weekend in Ann Arbor. Michigan now has
three wins under its belt in its attempt to end the season
on a 5-0 run.
Saturday, the Wolverines hosted Kent State, coming
away with a 1-0 victory. Forward Katie Vignevic scored
the only goal in the first quarter off a penalty stroke.
"We made some mistakes defensively," Kalli Hose
said. "And we weren't creating enough opportunities."
Goalkeeper Rachael Geisthardt had ten saves in the
game. Even though they were victorious, the Wolver-
ines were disappointed with their performance because
they were not putting all aspects of their game together.
Boston College was defeated by the Wolverines, 1-0,
yesterday in overtime. The highlight came when Katie
Thomas passed to Vignevic, who again scored the
game-winning goal. Despite the recurring low score,
Michigan was much happier with yesterday's game than
"Everyone played 100 percent," Hose said. "But we
did go in spurts as looking good as a team and just
Michigan seemed to put its game together much
more smoothly against Boston College.
"Everyone seemed really intense and everyone con-
tributed," Hose added. "You could rely on everyone and
there wouldn't be any weak links.
"We really wanted another shutout, and the defense
played well to prevent the other team from scoring."
With ten seconds left to the second half, Boston Col-
lege missed a penalty stroke which could have cost the
Wolverines the game. Michigan ended it when Vignevic
scored 4:30 into overtime.

"I just love making the pretty
play. The crowd also loves it. My
coach always wants me to shoot
the ball more, though. If the
defenders knew anything about me
"I'd be so easy to cover since I'm
always looking for the pass."
Loper obviously has not been
;that easy to cover considering her
high standings among Michigan
soccer players of past and present.
Loper ranks second in the
Michigan record book in assists
and is among the top 10 in
'scoring. Loper employs a
combination of speed and
determination in her efforts to
control the ball around the net.
She never watches a ball roll out
of bounds without sprinting to it,
many times to no avail. This all
out hustle reveals how the captain
has tried to lead the team.
"I'm just happy to see how
much the team has developed,"
Loper said. "When I started as a
freshman, we were bad. As a
sophomore we had to find a coach
again and then he left before this
year. It was hard."
This year, as president, Loper
was able to take this problem into
her own hands.
"This year, I interviewed
various coaches and finally settled
on the team's assistant coach from
last year," Loper said. "I wanted to
find a person who would stick
Finding a coach was equally
important as the numerous other
tasks the club president must
oversee in order to keep the team
"Basically I'm in charge of
everything," Loper said. "Hiring
the coach, buying new uniforms,
scheduling, advertising and
Luring top high school players
to come and play for a club team
which requires financial sacrifice
to compete is a daunting task for a
0* recruiter, especially one who is
still trying to balance schoolwork
and practice into the mix.
"People write to us, but they
usually don't know it's a club. I
also get lists of players from
various select teams like in
Illinois. I get in touch with these
players and invite them to come to
preseason tryouts," Loper said.
After being recruited herself
out of Northville High School by
Cornell, Loper decided to stay
close to home, shunning the lures
of the varsity team out east.
"I could have gone to Cornell,
but they didn't offer enough
money," Loper said. "I'm sure a
lot of players look into that, but
there just isn't a lot of money out
there to go around."
Money is a continuous concern
for the club considering it gets no
financial support from the athletic
department or the university.
Finding the money to fund the
club is a constant search which
leads to tension within the team.
"It's frustrating. People get
frustrated because it is a lot of
money we have to dish off of our
own," Loper said. "We have to
worry about things varsity teams
don't have to. I had to order
uniforms and we had to buy them
As her Michigan soccer career
comes to a close, Loper looks
back on her time as a leader in
building up the club in a positive
Nevertheless, the future does
not look bright for the club.
Numerous teams in the conference
are beginning to become varsity
"Four teams in the Big Ten are
going varsity next year," Loper
said. "(Varsity teams) can only
have two scrimmages in their
schedule that is assuming that they
want us to be one of those two
scrimmages. We won't have any
games. We could really have
problems. We might only be able
to play club teams. Even
Valparaiso (who fell 6-1 to
Michigan this year) is going
varsity and they weren't that good.
We've beaten every club team we
played this year.
"It bothers me because I've
worked so hard for the club. To
see the season go well and then
have the Michigan team dropped.
Michigan just isn't that much of a
soccer area while in other areas,
soccer is real big."
Loper concedes that her
involvement with the game will
now subside somewhat, but is by
no means over.
"I probably won't coach. I
played on an Olympic
development team in Michigan
this year. I moved up to the 20 and
over division; it is real hard. I'll
always play, though. This summer
I'll play on a select team that
travels and also some summer
Shannon Loper's teammates
have grown to expect nothing less
than everything from her. And as
someone who can stake a large
claim in the development of the
Michigan women's soccer
program, she considers it her duty
to meet these expectations again
