A fresh start wasjust what the Michi-
gan field hockey team got in its Labor
Day weekend sweep of Kent State and
Miami (Ohio) by 3-1 scores each day.
Michigan's efforts in its weekend
trip to Ohio were aided by new faces in
new places. Three freshmen, Bree Derr,
Michelle Smulders and Renee Leboe,
all contributed during theirplaying time.
"The freshmen came in ready to
play," senior co-captain Keely Libby
said. "They just had to learn how we
Another new look for the team came
with the changing of positions for two
returning players - senior Lelli Hose
and junior Nancy Irvine. Both adjusted
quickly to their new roles.
"Lelli Hose was on defense and
moved to sweeper. She had a great

weekend," Libby said.
Mary Dembro, Michigan's assistant
coach, likes the way Irvine has adjusted
to her new center midfield spot.
"Nancy is doing a great job of dis-
tributing the ball," Dembro said.
Defensive effort was the key in the
back-to-back victories. The Redskins
and Golden Flashes managed only 13
shots during the weekend.
"Miami only had six shots on goal,"
Dembro said. "We were disappointed
they scored a goal at all. They came
down on an attack and scored."
Libby, a defender, paced the team in
scoring as she tallied three goals over
the two games.

'We expect a much more successful
season," Dembro said. "The players do
too, which is more important.
"I definitely think we have a lot
more potential than last year," Libby
said. "A lot of the bench players could
be starting. There just aren't enough
spaces on the field."
. This week the Wolverines travel to
Boston for three games. Thursday,
Michigan takes on Springfield while
Saturday's opponent-is Northeastern.
The Wolverines complete their venture
to Beantown with a Sunday encounter
against Boston College.
"They are going to be better compe-
tition," Dembro said. "We've played

years and we beat them in close com-
"Our game plan is to keep the game
as basic as possible. We're just going to

Dembro sees improvement in the
team from last year.
