Forget about hotel rooms. The'
women's soccer team might as well
pitch tents and sleep on the soccer
fields at Champaign this weekend.
"Four games in 30 hours, that's a
tall order," Michigan coach Linda
A tall order? Certainly. A test of
endurance? Definitely. But, accord-

we nave t e most tit ciu [ team i
the country," Hamilton added.
The soccer extravaganza begins
tomorrow, as the Wolverines (7-1)
play Purdue and Indiana. They are
then thrust into battle with Illinois and
Western Illinois Sunday.
All three of Michigan's opponents
are club teams, but only two of them
pose special significance for this year's

said. "The games have always been

said. "We seem to get a little bit lax,
giving up too many goals instead of
maintaining the lead.
"We have been scoring a lot, but I
wish we could score more off of our
corner kicks. We have come close so
many times, but is seems that we just
can't convert when we have those
grinds to halt

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -
Nolan Ryan's glorious career ended
abruptly Wednesday night in Seattle,
when a ligament in his right elbow
"popped like a rubber band."
Ryan met with Rangers team or-
thopedist Dr. John Conway in Arling-
ton Thursday, but his elbow was so
sore and swollen that Conway de-
cided to examine him Tuesday.
Conway said discussions with
Ryan and Seattle team physician Dr.
Larry Pedegana indicated Ryan has
"a history and exam compatible with
a torn ulnar collateral ligament" and

year old Ryan and his body broke
