'M' spikers drop tight
contest in South Bend
Laxers fall short
at West Virginia
by Rich Mitvalsky
Daily Sports Writer
Notre Dame spoiled the Michi-
gan women's volleyball team's out-
of-conference excursion last night
in South Bend, taking the Wolver-
ines in three straight games. The
Fighting Irish (22-5 overall), No. 4
regionally, exploited Michigan in-
juries and blanked the seventh-
ranked Wolverines, 15-9, 17-15
Although Michigan (16-8) suf-
fered from the earlier loss of senior
outside hitter Hayley Lorenzen, the
Wolverines rotated additional play-
ers into the lineup to compensate
for the lack of up-front hitting
power. But an additional injury to
junior outside hitter Michelle Hor-
rigan put the Wolverines in a bind
"Michelle's leg was bothering
her, and her loss in the game made
a huge impact up front," head coach
Greg Giovanazzi said. "We had to
move Aimee (Smith) over again,
and Suzy O'Donnell started as
Smith, a sophomore, began the
season in the middle blocking posi-
tion. However, with the loss of
Lorenzen, Smith was forced to
move to the right outside hitter
position. And with Horrigan's ab-
sence in South Bend, Smith again
switched, this time to the left side.
"It was very hard to get into the
flow of our offense tonight, espe-
cially after all of those changes in
the lineup," Giovanazzi added. "We
have been working on new offen-
sive strategies, but we couldn't use
them tonight. Our middle attack
was ineffective, and our middle hit-
ters hit in the negative. But these
games were very close and could
have gone either way."
Individually, several Wolverines'
provided bright spots for the team.
Smith led all players with 16 kills
and also added 12 digs. Junior"
JoAnna Collias tallied 14 kills,
along with 16 digs, and senior co- '
captain Tarnisha Thompson
recorded 34 assists while hitting a
team-high percentage of .500.
"JoAnna had one of her best hit-%
ting nights so far, and Suzy started
for the first time and did a very nice
job," Giovanazzi said. "All in all,
we had some very fine individual
Despite the 3-0 score, Gio-F
vanazzi and the Wolverines remainT
optimistic heading into two key
matches this weekend.
"We will just put this game be-
hind us right away," Giovanazzi
said. "With Ohio State and Penn
State coming in, we just have to ex-
ecute very well. We should be able 4:

The Michigan men's lacrosse
team ended its fall season with a 2-1
finish at a tournament in West
Virginia Sunday. The Wolverines
failed to advance from round-robin
play after a 2-0 start. The team now
awaits the Big Ten club season be-
ginning in February.
The tournament consisted of 16
teams from across the country, in-
cluding Green Turtle, a former club
national champion. There were four
divisions with four teams in each.
After round-robin competition in the
division, each division champion
advanced to the semifinals. The
Wolverines finished second in their
division behind South County (Md.),
eliminating them from tournament
After pounding Slippery Rock, 9-
1, Michigan then took on West
Virginia. The team quickly fell be-
hind, 2-0, in the first half, but re-
grouped to score five goals in the
second half for a 5-3 victory. The
Wolverines finished the round-robin
competition against South County
and lost, 8-5.
"The team played well together
in the first two games," Michigan
captain Ron Givadvani said. "South
County is a good team, and we gave
a solid effort against them in that last
Attackman Steve Simich led the
Wolverines with seven goals and
two assists in the three games. On
defense, junior Ben Hohmuth played
well, as did sophomore Jaime
Borteck, who scored two goals from
the defense. The team outscored its
opponents, 19-12, and is satisfied
with its play this fall. Among this
autumn's successes was a rout of
"We played Bowling Green at
home last October and beat them re-
ally bad," junior Ivan Frank said
"We were ahead by six goals after
the first period, so everyone got to
After their winter hiatus, the
Wolverines will attempt to win their
fourth consecutive Big Ten-club ti-
tle. Nine of the 11 Big Ten schools
have club teams, and Frank feels
Michigan's depth will play a factor
in its attempt to defend the crown.
"We have an extremely deep
team. The freshmen are very good,"
Frank said. "Our defense has the
most depth. The only minor weak-
ness, I would say, is our midfield.
This winter, we should be one of the
favorites to win the conference title."
In addition to the Big Ten,
Michigan also faces a challenging
non-conference schedule. Lacrosse
powers Buffalo and Carnegie-
Mellon and a host of other east coast
schools await the Wolverines next
spring. Michigan begins the season
at a tournament in Louisiana over

Tiebreaker: Michigan at Northwestern
Ward is latest casualty in
by Chad Safran
Daily Hockey Writer
The Michigan power play in recent
games has struggled. Last weekend, the
absence of senior defensemen Chris
Tamer and Patrick Neaton was a large fac-
tor in the 2-for-12 effort against Western
Michigan. Both are returning for this
weekend's matchup with Lake Superior
State, but another member of the defensive
corps and a key piece of the power play
may be absent.
Junior Aaron Ward did not participate
in Tuesday's practice because of an in-
jured knee. Last evening, he was sched-
uled to undergo a Magnetic Resonance
Imaging (MRI) exam to try to uncover the
problem . His status for the Lake Superior
series is uncertain.
"I think it is very doubtful that he'll
play," Michigan coach Red Berenson said.
"Right now, there is something that is not
100 percent. We have some ideas of what
it might be, but we'll have a better idea af-
ter (the MRI)."
FALLING FROM GRACE: With the
loss and tie to the Broncos last weekend,
Michigan fell from the top spot to No. 6 in
the Albany-Times Union Poll. It is the
largest one-week drop since the poll was
inaugurated four years ago. Maine re-
claimed the No. 1 position, which it had
held in the preseason, with 15 first-place
votes. Lake Superior moved up to the sec-
ond spot, from fourth last week, receiving
eight first-place votes.
Berenson feels that the fall may aid his
"It ought to help them," Berenson said.
"The team learned a valuable lesson last
After a weekend sweep of Michigan
State in East Lansing, Miami (Ohio)
moved into the No. 10 spot. The Spartans
dropped out of the poll.
ON THE BOARD: Defenseman Steven
Halko became the third of the four
Michigan freshman to register a point
when he assisted on the Wolverines'
fourth goal Saturday night. Right wing
Ryan Sittler scored his first goal Friday
against the Broncos. Forward Kevin
Hilton registered his first tally at Ferris
State. Right wing John Arnold is the only
rookie who has not recorded a point in the
first five games.
LEADERS: After four conference
games, two Wolverines are 1-2 in Central
Collegiate Hockey Association scoring.
Center Brian Wiseman has 10 points (3
goals, 7 assists), while linemate David
Oliver, has nine points (8, 1).
