When a team is in the midst of a
winning streak, things just seem to fall
into place no matter what the circum-
(15-1) played with only 13 players for
the first part of the first half, yet still
went on to defeat Siena Heights, 2-1,
for their 14th consecutive victory.
"We had some people who arrived
late because they had classes this after-
noon," senior Alicia Stewart said.
"Some of them happened to be starters,
so we had people playing positions
they hadn't played before. Consider-
ing the circumstances, we still played
Before some of the Wolverines had
a chance to get adjusted to their new
positions, Siena Heights jumped out to
an early 1-0lead on a fluke goal. Only
a few minutes would go by, however,
until Michigan would respond with a
goal of their own. Michigan senior
Karen Jones broke through Siena
Heights' pressing defense and put the
ball into the farcorner of the goal for
her ninth tally of the year.
"SienaHeights plays with an offside
trap, so we always have to concentrate
on what they are doing defensively,"
"With this defense, we can't play
the way we're used to playing. But
somehow Karen broke through their
offsides trap and shot it into the oppo-
site comer of the goal."
Freshman Nicola Armster would
add her 12th goal later in the first half,
supplying all of the offense the Wol-
verines would need.
"It was areally tough game, and we
didn't play as well as we could of,"
senior captain Carrie Taylor said. "We
were just rushing everything. We were
all playing individually and inconsis-
tent throughout the game.
"It's a victory, though, and we'll
take it. It's good to get a bad game out
of our system. This was kind of a
wakeup callbecause we actually had to
earn the victory. If we play like we did
today, though, we are not going to win
Even with their performance, the
Wolverines said they feel that playing
varsity teams such as Siena Heights
will prepare them better for the Mid-
west Club Championships.
"Playing Siena Heights helps a lot
because this is a higher level team that
plays physically," Stewart said. "Nor-
mally, when we play the club teams,
we can take our time. But when we
played Siena Heights, we couldn't take
our time. We were constantly under

The Michigan women's volleyball
team was riding a tidal wave of mo-
mentum coming into Tuesday's game
against Notre Dame. The Wolverines
were coming off of one of their better
performances this season Saturday af-
ter sweeping Wisconsin.
But Michigan's wave hit a pier in
the No. 13 Fighting Irish (15-3) losing
15-9, 15-8, 15-4.
The Wolverines (3-3, 7-8) had a
season low hitting percentage against
the Irish, -.037; the negative percent-
age reflects more hitting errors than
kills. Ironically, Michigan's season best
percentage (.280) came against Wis-
Michigan head coach Greg
Giovanazzi said he wasn't exactly
thrilled with his team's effort Tuesday.
"When you see a box score like
(tonight's)," Giovanazzi said, "the hit-
ting breaks down because the passing
was horrendous, and the setting was
equally as bad. We never had a chance
to get in a groove."
Michigan had quick starts in both
games one and two, earning early leads
over the Irish. The teams were knotted
at 7-7 in game one when Notre Dame
outscored the Wolverines 8-2 to earn
a 15-9 decision. Game two was aimir-
ror image of the first with teams tied at
6-6 and the Irish rattling off nine of the
next eleven points for a 15-8 score. In
the final game, Notre Dame jumped
out to an 11- 1 lead and never looked
back, manhandling Michigan 15-4 for
"I'm disappointed with the way we
said, "Our defense was definitely not
as aggressive as in the past weekend."
Senior Fiona Davidson and sopho-
more Shannon Brownlee led the Wol-
verines with seven and six kills respec-
tively. Collias, second on the all-time
Michigan dig list, led the team with 10
digs. Collias now only needs 51 digs to
take over the top spot on-the list. Yet,
sophomore Suzy O'Donnell was the e
only player to have a positive hitting
Notre Dame was led by first-year
player Jenny Birkner who hit a phe-
nomenal .833 percentage and led the
teamwith 10killsandninedigs. Middle
blocker Julie Harris nailed seven kills
and wassecondonthe team with a.313
Notre Dame's team percentage
(.175) was way below its .237 season@
average. Irish coach Debbie Brown
echoedMichigan'sGiovanazzi by say-
ing that her team played poorly and has
proven they can play much better.
Suzy O'Donnell and the Michigan volleyball team struggled against Notre
Dame last night, falling in straight games.

Afteradominating weekend ofplay
that led the Michigan volleyball team
to two victories, JoAnna Collias got
her just desserts.
Collias, a senior outside hitter, was
named Big Ten Volleyball Player of
the Week. Collias had career highs in
kills (22) and aces (4) in the Northwest-
"It's an honor tobe named player of
the week in the Big Ten," Collias said.
"But itshould go to the whole team, not
just one person. I think the whole team
played really well this weekend."
For the weekend, Collias had 41
kills for a 5.9 kill average. The average
was more than twice her season aver-
age of 2.29.
MORE ON COLAS- In addition to
the honor she received this week,
Collias is nearing the Michigan career
record for digs. With 165 digs this
season, Collias is currently second on
the all-time list and only needs 51 more
digs to break Lisa Vahi's mark of
Collias also holds the Michigan
records for digs in a season and digs in
a conference season with 403 and 258,
SETTING SEr: After what her coach
and teammates called a "great" effort
last weekend, first-year player Erin
McGovern earned the starting role at
setter. McGovern had 105 assists last
weekend with only two ballhandling
The team also reached its season
high in hitting efficiency with a mark
of .280. The previous high was .264
against Washington in the third match
of the year.
"She had a great weekend," Michi-
gan coach Greg Giovanazzi said of
McGovern. "She set her assists record
on Friday and broke it Saturday. She's
just now adjusting to the speed of the
ball and size and strength of the oppo-
sition in collegevolleyball. She's gained
a half of a year of experience and is
taking her game to a new level of play.
She may have some tough times still,
but she has definitely taken the starting
Those tough times surfaced yester-
day against No. 13 Notre Dame, as
McGovern had just 14 assists, and the
team's attack percentage dropped into
the negative range.
INJURY UPDATE: Two key injuries
have plagued the Wolverines for much
of the year. Outside hitter Aimee Smith
was back into the full swing of things
both in terms of practice and in actual
matches this past weekend.
However, she was replaced in the
third game of the Notre Dame match
after aggravating the shoulder injury.
Michelle Horrigan has been out for
three weeks and was reexamined on
Monday. She still experiences a lot of
soreness in her ankle and has yet to
resume any form of practicing.
