Women bound for Arizona

By BOB ABRAMSON
DAILY SPORTS WRITER
Forgive the Michigan women's
soccer team for letting its emotions
run wild.
The Wolverines (22-2) qualified
for nationals in Phoenix, Ariz. begin-
ning Nov.18 by winning the Midwest
Tournament with a string of three
straight shutouts this weekend at Ohio
State, including a 2-0 triumph over
Miami (Ohio) in the finals.
"This was the mostexciting week-
end I've ever had," senior Denise
Urkowitz exclaimed. "The whole
tournament, I was thinking that this
could be my last game. When we
knew we had the game in handagainst
Miami of Ohio, it was the best feeling
knowing that the season wasn'tover."
Miami provided the Wolverines
with the stiffest test of the tourna-
ment.Michiganjumped out toanearly
1-0 lead when freshman Nicola
Armsterheadedhome a crossing pass
from junior Jennifer Hoffmeister.
"I have never been so excited to
score a goal," Armster said.
Clinging to a 1-0 lead at halftime,
the Wolverines held off the Redskin
offense in the second half and senior
Lisa Ashton added a goal with a
minute left to secure the victory.
"It was a very intense game,"
Ashton said. "But when it was over,
everyone just went crazy."
"The girls basically tossed me in
the mud and threw a coupleof gallons

of water on me," coach Linda
Hamilton said. "It was worth it,
though. That type of situation was
expected."
Saturday, the Wolverines received
a forfeit when Francisian Stubenville
showed up late, and later in the day
got goals from six different Wolver-
ines in a 6-0 victory over Ohio State.
These two victories set up a show-
down between Michigan and Penn
State Sunday. The Wolverines took
control of this contest by getting two
first-half goals from seniors Alicia
Stewart and Ashton, and once again,
the defense held strong the rest of the
game. Freshman MariaMarcos added
a goal in the second half and goaltender
Alicia Smith posted yet another shut-
out, 3-0.
"Penn State figured to be our
toughest game," Carrie Taylor said.
"We started off a little shaky and
nervous, but once we got two great
goals, we pretty much tookPenn State
out of the game."
What may have been even more
impressive about the Wolverines this
weekend was that amidst the pressure
of having to win all their games to
qualify for nationals, they didn't al-
low a single goal.
"Alicia Smith, our goaltender,
played really well," Urkowitz said.
"She was right in there when they
challenged her. In the Miami of Ohio
game, she did a great job of knocking
away a lot of their corner kicks."

Crew team sinks field at 'M' Chase

By TOM sEELEY
DAILY SPORTS WRITER
Braving what Michigan men's
varsity crew coach Greg Hartsuff
called "torrential conditions," the
men's and women's varsity crew
teamsboth won theirrespectiveraces
in the Michigan Chase held Sunday at
Ford Lake in Ypsilanti.
The No. 1 men's boat crossed the
line first, coming in ahead of Grand
Valley State. The womens' boats took
the first two spots in their race, beat-
ing Michigan State's No. 1 boat.
The only rough spot of the day for+

Michigan came when heavy winds
caused the men's second boat to fill
with water, sinking the boat and the
team's chances. Furthermore, some
of the sunken team members came
down with hypothermia.
The race marked the third con-
secutive good showing for the Wol-
verines. Hartsuff believes that the re-
cent phasing out of the lightweight
programhasalottodo with the team's
success of late.
"Without a lightweight program,
we've been able to narrow our focus
onto the heavyweight program,"

r

Hartsuff said. "And in competitive
rowing, your program is judged on
the performance of your men's and
women's heavyweight eights.
"With only one set of boats to
concentrate on, I can now put all of
my best athletes into the top boat,
instead of in the past when I had to
split them up between the lightweight
and the heavyweight programs."
The women's successes came on
the heels of recent practice difficulties.
"A lack of coxswains makes water
work difficult, butoverall, we've been
rowing rather well," women's varsity
coach Mark Rothstein said.
The two teams' next race is against
Ohio State Nov. 20.

By MELINDA ROCO
FOR THE DAILY
It was a day of cooperation and
competition for the Michigan men's
volleyball team Saturday as the Wol-
verinesjoined Michigan State in Bur-
ton for a clinic and match at Atherton
High School.
Around 50 junior high and high
school students participated in the
clinic, which was rewarding for play-
ers and kids alike.
"You learned a lot," one partici-
pant said. "It helped to perfect basic
skills when you worked one-on-one
with the guys."
After the clinic, the youngsters
were treated to the first confrontation
of the year between Michigan and
Michigan State.
It was a rollercoaster match as the
Wolverines took the Spartans to five
games before losing, 15-8, 13-15, 6-
15, 15-4, 9-15.
Michigan took a quick advantage
in the first game as junior setter Stan
Lee aced two jump serves for a 4-0
lead. Sophomore outside hitter Gun
Unluer led the back row with an .833
passing percentage, and sophomore
middle hitter Andy Spitser held the

fort at the net with three solid blocks.
Freshman outside hitter Ernesto
Rodriguez led the team with eight
kills as Michigan captured the first
game, 15-8.
Rodriguez continued his rally of
attacks with a total of 11 kills in the
next two games. Lee had 24 assists
and combined with Spitser for three
blocks. However, a streak of poor
passing and missed serves by Michi-
gan gave the Spartans the victories.
Michigan came back strong in the
fourth game, totaling five serving aces,
three blocks and nine kills to hold the
Spartans to only four points.
"We had to deal with a lot of ups
anddownsin thematch,"Unluersaid.
"Though we suffered those twolosses,
we weren't discouraged. If anything,
it gave us the intensity to play better
and more focused so we could crush
them in the fourth game."
Michigan State won the match in
therally-scoring fifth game with a 15-
9 decision.
"Rally scoring in the fifth game
can be detrimental,"Unluersaid. "The
game moves so fast that once you get
down, it's difficult to come back."
At least the Wolverines had the
clinic to console themselves.
