Blue spikers seek first
triumph in weeks

DAILY SPORTS WRITER
The Michigan women's volley-
ball team is facing a seven-game
losing streak going into its matches
with Wisconsin and Northwestern
this weekend.
However, tonight just might be
the cure the eighth-place Wolver-
ines (3-9 Big Ten, 7-14 overall)
have been looking for when they
battle Wisconsin (5-7, 12-10).
Ironically, the last victory the
Wolverines earned was a 3-0 sweep
of the Badgers Oct. 9 in the "Rock
the House" match at Cliff Keen
Arena.
The Badgers are led by outside
hitter JoAnna Grotenhuis, who is
averaging over four kills-per-game.
Michigan will invade last-place
Northwestern (2-10, 9-13) Satur-
day for a second chance at victory.
The Wolverines defeated the Wild-
cats 3-1 Oct. 8 in Ann Arbor.The
Wildcats' offensive leader is Allison
Krumbein who carries a 3.55 kill
average.
Michigan head coach Greg
" Giovanazzi is optimistic about the
two matches.
"I think we will play a lot better

this weekend than we did last week-
end," Giovanazzi said. "Last week-
end, we tried to rush (back) our
injured players too quickly when
some of them were only healthy the
day of the match."
The slump, which started with a
loss to nationally ranked Notre
Dame Oct. 12, includes losses to
three of the Big Ten's top teams --
Penn State, Ohio State and Minne-
sota, who are first, second and
fourth, respectively.
Seniors Karen Jacobsen and
Erica Badran-Grycan say they want
to finish out the conference season
on a high note, starting this week-
end.
"We're ready for this weekend,"
the pair said in unison.
"Its been hard this year with all
of the injuries," Badran-Grycan said.
"But since everyone is healthy, we
should do well."
"Yeah, but it's going to be tough
because they have big crowds, es-
pecially Wisconsin," Jacobsen said.

by an average score of 7-3.
The Bulldogs have already faced
some tough competition this year,
losing two games apiece to Northern
Michigan and Lake Superior. But the
Bulldogs, who return 17 lettermen
from last year's team, are fresh off a
4-3 win Tuesday night at Michigan
State.
"They'll be really pumped after
that game," Berenson said. "We
thought they would be in the upper
echelon of the league this year. They
finished off last year by beating
(Michigan) State in the CCHA play-
offs. They're definitely on a roll right
now."
Center John Duff leads the Bull-
dogs with three goals. Right wingers
Brad Burnham and Tim Christian each
have three points for Ferris.

The Michigan volleyball team has not had a victory since defeating
Wisconsin almost a month ago. The Wolverines face the Badgers tonight.

M', MSU to conduct clinic before match

By MEL.INDA ROGO
FOR THE DAILY
This weekend will be a new expe-
rience for the Michigan men's vol-
leyball team.
The Wolverines meet Michigan
State in Burton, but it's not just an-
other clash on the court. The teams
will be co-hosting a three-hour vol-
leyball clinic open to the public at
Atherton High School at 3 p.m. to-
morrow.
Wolverine coach Pam Griffin and
Spartan coach Sante Perelli will pro-
vide instruction on basic volleyball
skills. Participants will then have the
opportunity to work with the Michi-
gan and Michigan State players.
"This is the first time the Michi-
gan club has worked a clinic like
this," Griffin said. "The event has
been well publicized so we are ex-
pecting a big turnout."
Although it will be the Wolver-
ines' first such event, the Spartans
have been doing similar clinics for
several years.
"We've been sponsoring such clin-
ics over the past five years," Perelli
said. "They're a lot of fun. You get a
lot of young people that come out,

especially boys who really have no
other opportunity to see and work
with older players."
The Wolverines said that they are
eager to pass on their knowledge of
the sport.
"I'm looking forward to working
with the little kids," junior outside
hitter Chad Engel said. "It's always
rewarding to help out people who
want to improve their own game and
can have fun playing the sport."
"What's exciting about these clin-
ics is that everyone there is sincerely
interested in learning the skills," jun-
ior middle hitter Todd Coffey said.
Following the clinic, the Wolver-
ines and the Spartans will compete in
their firstmatch of the year. Michigan
and Michigan State have both reached
the semifinals in two of the same
tournaments this past month.
Senior outside hitter Justin
MacLaurin said the team is looking
forward to playing its state rival.
"It's always a rush when we play
Michigan State," MacLaurin said.
"Though we usually play very well
against them, they are a tough team to
defeat. With our squad this year, we
definitely have a chance to take them

down."
What is different about this match
is that it will take place before a po-
tential crowd of 1500 people.
"Promotions have sold 200 re-
served tickets," Griffin said. "Coor-
dinators expect the auditorium to fill
to its 1500-person capacity the night
of the game."
The Wolverines are looking for-
ward to playing in front of a larger
crowd.
"Having such a large crowd
present will be different for us," Engel
said. "Fan support isn't as strong in
the Midwest as it is on the coasts. But
men's volleyball is growing in popu-
larity, and the response to this
weekend's event reflects that."

The Wolverine secondary still leavess.

right? Well, make no mistake, this is the bad..
Purdue's closest Big Ten game was the 59-
56 extravangza against Minnesota. However,
the Boilermakers lost, just as they did
against Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio State and
Iowa. The trend will only continue tomorrow
as Michigan tries to salvage a disappointing
season of its own. The Wolverines thought
they would be writing history in 1993. Little .C 2 E 10
did they know that it would the negative type.
This has got to be one of their two wins in
the next three weeks if they are to play after
Thanksgiving.
