innings to begin the contest, but sur-
rendered three runs on four hits in
the fourth to prompt Ferullo's en-
trance with two outs.
Michigan took a 4-3 lead in the
fourth thanks to two-out hitting that
has become a standard for the team.
Matt Fleury and Kirk Beerman hit
back-to-back run-scoring singles in
the inning off of reliever Tom Billek.
In the opener, Penn State not only
broke Wolverine starter Ron Hollis'
(2-3) 17-inning Big Ten scoreless
streak and 11-inning hitless streak,
but handed him a loss as well.
Despite the fact that Hollis al-
lowed only five hits and struck out
eight to complete his third straight
complete game, he contributed to both
Penn State rallies.He threw a squeeze
bunt attempt away in the fourth to
allow an unearned run, and hit Derek
Brochna with a pitch two outs into the
sixth before serving up a two-run
double to Derek Ryder.
Michigan was in good position for
a seventh-inning rally when Rodney
Goble and Kevin Crociata reached
base with one out. But reliever Billek
closed out the meat of the Wolver-
ines' lineup in Scott Weaver and
Simmons to preserve the game for
starter John Maggiore (2-2).
Michigan will continue its bevy of
spring games at 3 p.m. today with a
makeup contest against Eastern
Michigan at Fisher Stadium. The game
was originally scheduled for lastTues-

Golf teams show some signs of improvement

DAILY SPORTS WRITER
The Michigan men's golf team
approached last weekend's Marshall
Invitational with modest expectations.
A middle-of-the-pack finish in the
18-team event was all the Wolverines
were looking for, considering the field
included Kent State, Miami (Ohio)
and Illinois, the top three teams in
Michigan's last tournament.
When all was said and done, that's
how they did - more or less. The
Wolverines placed 13th, but it was a
hardly a distant 13th. Six teams fin-
ished ahead of Michigan by seven
strokes or less.
Kent State won the tournament by
five strokes over Ohio State, 37 ahead
of the Wolverines.
Michigan played better than ex-
pected Friday, landing in sixth place
after the first round. However, just as
the weather in West Virginia turned
cold, so did the Wolverines' play.
Saturday, the team combined for a
312 stroke total - dead last for the
second round. Coach Jim Carras un-
derstands that turnarounds like those
are just a part of the game.
"Unlike (other sports) where you
play a team 15 times a year," he said,
"it's a two-or three-day affair, and if
you happen to be playing well as a
team, you can do well. If you're not,
you're going to be an also-ran. It's as
simple as that."
Junior Michael Hill led the Wol-
verines with a 10-over par 226, his
best three-round total of the year.
This past weekend, the Michigan
women's golf team showed signs of
improvement as it tied for 14th in the
21-team Lexel Golf/University of
South Florida Invitational at the USF
Golf Course in Tampa. Shooting a
three-round total of 989, the five-
member team managed to beat out
Big Ten rival Minnesota in the 54-
Wake Forest took home both the
team trophy and the individual hon-
ors, with a total 922 shots for the
team, and a 218 for individual cham-
pion Shephanie Neill.
For the second week in a row,
sophomore Shannon McDonald led
Michigan, tying for tenth out of 109
competitors with a total of 236 (82-
The team wound up just two
strokes shy of its goal of 320 after one
round of play, but the second day, the
Wolverines returned to their usual
"We played pretty well the first
day," McDonald said. "The second
and third days we never picked up the
lead. We weren't used to playing that
well and the other teams picked up
Although the team did not achieve
its stroke goal, it did beat Minnesota,
and came close to 13th-place Michi-
gan State (982) and 11th-place Iowa
"It was a good feeling to beat
Minnesota," McDonald said. "If we
can beat the other two (Michigan State 0
and Iowa), we can move up (in the
