SOCCER
Continued from page 5
A possible factor for Michigan's
lackluster play could be the injury to
co-captain and on the field inspiration
Dave Nordwall.
"Our team leader is injured and it is
ayoung team," Burns said. "(Because)
we are lacking leadership, the chemis-
try is still a little off."
Another factor was Macomb for-
ward Henry Steinwascher. He coun-
tered the Michigan attack with a goal of
his own. Eightminutes later he assisted
forward Scott Baum to put Macomb

ahead 2-1.
Immediatly following the Macomb
goal, Cosenza struck back with a solo
goal right through the center of the
Macomb defense. After that everything
seemed to go Michigan's way.
Michigan defender Rick Weinberg
headed in the go-ahead goal offofacorner
kick from midfielder Kris Wiljanen, and
soon after Steve Moore secured the vic-
tory with a free-kick goal.
"Until the last 15 minutes, we stayed
well into the game," Macomb coach
Mik Lacadis said. "We made some
obvious mistakes in the second half,
and couldn't get it back."

Improving golfers gear up for fall

By SUSAN DANN
For the Daily
As the saying goes, there is no '
in the word team. But for the Michi-
gan women's golf team, success is
spelled with individual performance,
with hopes that it will lead to an
overall better team showing.
In her second year at Michigan,
coach Kathy Teichert looks forward
to a season full of improvement, after
guiding Michigan to it's first tourna-
ment title in two years.
The team's enthusiasm for a com-
petitive season is due in part to Teichert.
"She has become more comfort-
able each year," junior Shannon
McDonald said. " She is a good player
herself, so she understands the game

and what we go through."
After opening this season with a
sixth place finish at the Minnesota Golf
Invitational in Minneapolis on Sept. 3-
4, the Wolverines are now able to gauge
their work for the fall.
"It was the beginning of the sea-
son and everyone had some nerves,"
McDonald said. "We all had a good
round and a bad round."
The Wolverines return almost in-
tact from last season. McDonald,
Michigan's top individual from a year
ago, averaged 83.04 over 28 rounds.
Along with Jenny Zimmerman and
Tiffany McCorkel, Michigan also retains
the services of sophomores Wendy
Westfall and Ashley Williams, ranking
third and fourth, respectively, on last

season's roster. Sophomores Molly
Vandenbark and Jodi Smith as well as
freshmen LaurmTzakis and Nicole Green
will also challenge for tournament time.
This weekend the women's golf
team travels to Michigan State for the
annual Spartan Invitational. This tour-
nament is a warm-up for the rest of the
season, according to Teichert.
"With all of our tournaments, we
hope to improve every time out,"
Teichart said. "We might not have the
scores I'd like to be seeing, but we're
working hard on our short game since
we haven't excelled in this area."
With an improved chipping game,
team scores are expected to drop.
Teichert hopes a team score of 325 will
put Michigan into contention.

How Many Questions
Separate You from the
LSAT Score You Need?
The LSAT is a very highly leveraged exam.
Correctly answering only an additional 4 or 5
questions generally improves your ranking by
10 full percentiles. Thus, rising from the 70th
percentile to the 90th requires approximately
an additional 10 correct responses.
At EXCEL, we systematically guide you
through the reasoning required to consistently
make these fine distinctions that separate
good scores from truly great ones.

Field hockey to challenge.
powerful conference foes

By RAVI GOPAL
Daily Sports Writer
For the Michigan field hockey team,
the Big Ten season could have started
off a bit easier.
Instead, the Wolverines' weekend
finds them battling conference pow-
erhouses Northwestern and Iowa.
Despite the competition, Michi-
gan (0-0 Big Ten, 4-3 overall) gears up
for conference play after seven games
with non-conference opponents.
"We're totally excited," freshman
midfielder Carolyn Schwarz said. "It's
a good challenge."
Schwarz's statement could be the
understatement of the year, considering
that the Wolverines have acombined I-
48 career record against their two oppo-

nents. Lastyear's2-0 win atNorthwest-
er accounts for Michigan's only vic-
tory against either conference foe.
Yet Michigan coach Patti Smith
remains unperturbed.
"This isabrand new team, andabrandf
new year," Smith said.
The Michigan players echoed
Smith's optimism.
"We've really been working well
on our passing," junior goalkeeper
Rachael Geisthardt said. "We'll be
fired up and ready to go."
The Wildcats feature All-Big Ten
First-Teamer Gretchen Scheuermann.
The senior forward/midfielder led the
conference in scoring last year.
Offensively, Michigan hopes to
move the ball around quicker and
capitalize on its scoring chances. The
Wolverines, though, have had prob-
lems doing the latter and have empha-
sized execution of scoring opportuni-
ties this week in practice.
"We're doing 1-on-I with the goal-
ies, and we're finishing (our drives) at
the net," Schwarz said. 0
Execution of scoring opportunities
will be vital this weekend. Because of
the high calibre of Michigan's oppo-
nents, scoring chances will be fewer.
The Wolverines were shut out in
their two games last year against the
Hawkeyes. Iowa holds a 25-0 lead in
the series.
In contrast to Northwestern, Iowa
has no single player that will warrant
major attention from the Wolverines.
Last year's Big Ten Most Valuable
Player and overall leading scorer, Kristy
Gleason, has graduated and a number
of talented players have stepped up to
fill this hole.
With the large number of under-
classmen on the roster (eight freshmen
and four sophomores), it has taken a
little while for Michigan to learn about
one another.
"I think we've learned a lot in our
first seven games," Smith said. "We
have the potential for our team to play
better."

SWIFTY.

[A.K.A. THE BJ-200e]

I had just polished off a crumbeake
doughnut and a steamin' cup of'
Joe when the phone rang.
A woman's voice
spoke, "Is this Nick
Canon, Print Detective?" I
answered in the affirmative. 3Vr . _

She told me she had a
lot on her mind and even
more on her desktop. A
phone, a" computer, a key-
board, a monitor, a mouse pad,
a scanner, and a personal printer
that in her words, "was as big and
slow as a dinosaur."
"Not good'; I said. Then she got
teal serious, "I run a fast-paced small
business. I'm looking for a printer that
matches that description and I don't

friend'of mine, Little Swifty." Her eyes
lit up as we walked over to the BJ-200e.
"It's so sleek, so compact", she
whispered. I hit the print sample but-
ton. Her eyes lit up again, and she
continued to whisper, "It's so fast,
and the output so crisp and
clean." I didn't want to name
drop, but I told her a couple of

was the price, and before she could even
ask I told her, "It's a steal.
Yep. She was happy all right. Come
to think of it, so was I. As we parted I
wrote down a number she could call if
she had more questions, 1-800-848-4123.
And then, I looked in her big beautiful
eyes and told her what I tell everyone,
"Before you buy a printer, investigate.

"You know 'Little Swifty' (A.K.A The

"Maybe if you hum a few bars."
