The Michigan Daily - Thursday, October 20, 1994- 9

When a Big Ten team hosts a
small school on the eve of a Big Ten
tournament, it is often difficult to
stay focused. This will be the big-
gest problem for the Michigan men's
soccer team (9-4-2) today at Mitchell
Field when it hosts Adrian College
at 4 p.m.
With the University of Illinois Tour-
nament coming up this weekend, the
Wolverines may find it tough to stay
keyed into today's match. The last time
the team lost it's concentration, it was
almost upset by Siena Heights, strug-
gling to a 1-0 win.
"We need to just be ourselves and
stay focused," Michigan defenseman
Josh Leutz said. "If we don't, it could
be another nightmare like the Sienna
In order to improve its record,
Michigan will need to spread out its
talent. The Wolverines have demon-
strated a strong defense that few teams
have penetrated with success, but of-
fensively the squad has had some

shows up," Leutz said. "We should

For the Daily
Scenario: You are one speck,
standing among over 100,000 people
breathlessly waiting for Mr. An-
nouncer to signal a beginning to the
activities. Where are you?
Are you cleverly biding time in
row 52 in Michigan Stadium? Are
you craning your neck to see over the
ocean of illegally-staked tents at
Woodstock? Or are you sitting, pen-
cil poised, in 1800 Chem, readying
for your physics midterm?
All wrong. You would be, in fact,
standing on the bank of the Charles
River, Sunday, in Boston. The men's
crew team travels there this weekend
to compete in the Head of the Charles,
the largest single-day sporting event
in the world.
With 40 teams in attendance, com-
petition will be tough because this
meet is the meet of the fall season.
"Anybody who is anybody will be
there," coach Greg Hartsuff com-
mented. "We'll face teams from the
Ivy League, the Midwest, the East,
the Southwest - everywhere."

Htsuff said he feels that his team
will do well in Boston. The Wolver-
ines' times are faster this year than
they were last year, Hartsuff said, but
still not as fast as expected in the
beginning of the season.
"Because we can't row through
the summer, we are still working on
our physiology, but we are definitely
more aesthetically pleasing than last
year," Hartsuff said.
A new name has recently entered
the spotlight alongside Michigan row-
ing greats, Matt Beelan, Chris Booms,.
Chris Higgins and Jay Steele. Junior
Casey Jenkins has been beating the
clock lately for some solid times.
Jenkins expressed the Wolver-
ines' excitement for the upcoming
"It's the first time we've been there
in two or three years," he said. "Our
program has developed a lot, and now
we're pretty good. We're really hop-
