Men 's
soccer

Schoolcraft
By JOHN LEROI
For the Daily
Under gray skies yesterday at
Mitchell Field, the Michigan men's
soccer team battled both a chilling
wind and a tough Schoolcraft squad.
In the end, the Wolverines defeated
both. However, the most satisfying
victory was the 2-1 win over
Schoolcraft, a nationally ranked jun-
ior college.
At the outset, things didn't go too
well for the Wolverines (4-3-2). A
little more than 33 minutes into the
first half, Schoolcraft forward Chris
Hayes tucked a penalty shot into the
upper right corner of the net for a 1-0
lead. For the rest of the first half,
Schoolcraft seemed to frustrate Michi-
gan by playing the ball through the
air.
"Theentire first half, we got sucked
into playing their style of soccer,"
Michigan coach Steve Burns said.

'M' icers lead pack again
Wolverines voted first in CCHA coaches' poll

0l

DETROIT - New rinks, new
players and new coaches.
On the heels of yet another season,
the Central Collegiate Hockey Asso-
ciation is confronting a youth move-
ment.
At yesterday's seventh annual
CCHA luncheon, all 10of the league's
coaches offered a preview as to what
lies ahead in the 94-95 season. On
everyone's mind was the surprising
pre-season coaches' poll which ranks
the Wolverines No. 1, ahead of inter-
state rival Michigan State and de-
fending national champion Lake Su-
perior State.
Michigan coach Red Berenson
spoke modestly of his youth-driven
team, as the Wolverines will once
again welcome another slew of fresh-
man, including probable starting
goalie Marty Turco.
"I'm surprised that we are ranked
as high as we are," Berenson admit-
ted. "We take it with a grain of salt.
It's a tribute to our program."
So with Michigan entering this
year once again the team to beat,
(ranked No. 1 pre-season last year, it
went on to win the league title) other
coaches took a stab at how the confer-

ence will shape up. Lake State coach
Jeff Jackson hopes that his team's
influx of young talent - 19 freshmen
and sophomores - won't keep the
Lakers from challenging the more
mature squads.
"We seem to get picked third ev-
ery year," he acknowledged. "I guess
that's where we'd like to be picked,
knowing that we're good enough to
possibly be there, yet hide in the weeds
a bit."
Somehow Lake State usually man-
ages to overcome such pre-season
worries; coincidentally, so do Ron

Mason's Spartans. While anumber of
veteran forwards return, a potential
concern is the inexperience behind
the blue line.
"We lost three defensemen last
year who were all big and strong and
tough," Mason said. "The kids we've
got in now are all big, but they're not
as strong because they're freshmen.
They are very talented, but defense is
the most difficult position in my esti-
mation to learn."
One of Mason's former students
is now a teacher himself. New Miami

CCHA's preseason coaches' poll and second in voting by the media. The
Wolverines boast one of the top recruiting classes in the country this year.

Women's crew heads
to Pittsburgh for debut

By MICHAEL JOSHUA
For the Daily
After practicing for only three
weeks, the Michigan women's crew
team will test out how far it has come
this weekend when it travels to Pitts-
burgh to compete in the Head of the
Ohio Championships.
The presence of many new mem-
bers on the varsity level and the fact
that the team has not had much time on
the water would leave most coaches a
little nervous. But Michigan coach
Mark Rothstein is not really that con-
cerned about the outcomes this week-
end.
"It's a little premature for us to
race," Rothstein said. "But there are
not many fall races that are close by."
However, despite the squad's ex-
perience level, the Wolverines are not
giving into defeatjust yet. Seniors Amy
Babschek, Pam Carroll, Kathy Krainer
and Lauri Tuschen believe their four
years on the team should help im-
mensely.
"We're a lot more enthusiastic and
cohesive this year," Krainer said.
"There are more fourth year rowers
than in previous years. That should

help a lot."
The Wolverines will have plenty of
competition this weekend. Defending
national champion Cornell heads the
listofteams competing. Theotherteams
involved include Brown, MIT, Ohio
State, Notre Dame and many smaller
schools from the Pittsburgh area.
The team is sending twenty-
seven members to the regatta. Two
boats are competing in the open
division, while two will see action
in the club division.
"There are a lot of teams that we
have beaten and who have beaten us
also," Krainer said. "We'll see what
happens."
Among those seeing their first ac-
tion on the varsity level will be Jeanette
Stawski, Lisa Labadie and Allison
Torres.
Rothstein is hoping for the best this
weekend but realizes it will be ex-
tremely difficult to win the tournament
since fall regattas are not where the
team's focus lies.
"We use the fall races as a set-
ting base for the spring," Rothstein
said. "We would like to peak in the
spring."
