Volleyball tries to extend
its winning ways tomght
By RODERICK BEARD
Daily Sports Writer
Because of its mid-week match, the
women's volleyball team only had one
day to savor its Wednesday triumph
over Michigan State. Instead of resting
and thinking back fondly to that five-
game battle with the Spartans, the
Big Ten, 6-22
overall) have to
hit the road for
tonight's match at
having their best
1990, when they Luz
finished the season 17-11. In 1993,
Katie Weismiller, in her first year at
Indiana, helped the Hoosiers improve
their record by five matches from 1992
to an 11-18 mark last season.
Indiana won the first match be-
tween the two earlier this season, a 15-
6, 15-4, 16-14 sweep at Cliff Keen
Arena. In that match, senior middle
blocker Anne Eastman posted 14 kills
and five blocks. The Hoosiers will at-
tempt to sweep both matches from
Michigan for the first time since 1990.
Playing so soon after an emo-
tional match may be good for the
Wolverines, though, because they
might still have the drive that kept
them in the match and helped them
come back to win when they were
behind. Sophomore Shareen Luze
provides a lot of the emotional spark
for the Wolverines.
"Shareen is our emotional leader,"
senior Aimee Smith said. "She's al-
ways fired up."
Luze will need some help boosting
the team. Confidence and a desire to
win have been traits missing from
Michigan players - that is, until
Wednesday night's match. That vic-
tory was reminiscent of the Wolver-
ines' five-game upsetof Illinois in the
last match of the season.
Winning may become addictive
for the Wolverines.
"Now that we've had it once, we
want it again," Luze said.

Now, however, Miami seems to
have found its man. Chuck Thuss has
taken over the goaltending duties with
conviction - the senior goalie ranks
second in the CCHA with a 1.99 goals-
against average. His play alone, though,
isn't the sole explanation for Miami's
turnaround of late.
"He'shadastabilizing influence on
us," Mazzoleni said, "but we didn't
play that badly as a team before (Thuss
took over). It was a combination of
having a new coach and a new system.
Having won four of their last five,
the Redskins may be on a roll, but
perhaps no team has the locomotive-
like momentum the Wolverines now
have. Michigan is on a five-game win-
ning streak and within three points of
CCHA leaderMichigan State.
The Wolverines scored 14 goals
last weekend, but may be hard-pressed
to repeat that feat. Right wing Mike
Knuble will miss Friday's contest be-
cause of his game misconduct penalty
last Saturday. Berenson figures to make
some of the same adjustments that were
made when Knuble missed games due
to injury earlier this season.
Then, Warren Luhning stepped in
and played with the left wing Kevin
Hilton and center Brendan Morrison.
Ron Sacka and the Michigan hockey team had no trouble disposing of Michigan State and Bowling Green last
weekend. Tonight, the Wolverines face Miami at Yost, where the Redskins haven't won in their last 18 tries.
Women swimmers to
take on Nittany Lions
By MARC DILLER
Daily Sports Writer
Two weeks ago the Michigan women's swimming and diving team defeated
all of its opponents in what was supposed to be its toughest regular season
tournament. Last weekend, the Wolverines devastated their toughest conference
foe, Northwestern, 176-116. Then what does this weekend have in store for them?
A fatigued Michigan (2-0 Big Ten, 4-0 overall) meets Penn State(1-0, 3-0),
its most difficult Big Ten road competition, tomorrow at State College.
"Penn State has always been a solid, well coached team, but it has become a
real solid rivalry for us," Michigan coach Jim Richardson said. "It is an
opportunity for our fatigued people to put it on the line."
The Nittany Lions have raced their opponents tough this year. After finishing
fourth in the conference last year (behind Michigan, the Wildcats and Ohio State),
Penn State has improved its squad.
The Nittany Lions return their top point scorer from last year's confernce
meet, co-captain Deni Rudy. She finaled in both the 50 and 100-yard freestyles
and also anchored all five of Penn State's relay teams.
Freshman phenom Carmen Kondra will relieve Rudy of some ofherrespon-
sibilities this year. Kondrais one of Canada's top sprinters and has already proven
to be the Nittany Lions most consistent scorer this season.
Kondra anchored Penn State's 400 freestyle relay team last weekend in its
In an exhibition match vs. Northwestern, Michigan notched a team best
3:29.56 in the 400 freestyle relay. The relay highlights Saturday's competition.
"It will be a great challenge for our sprinters to race Saturday," Richardson
said. "Whenever we have the opportunity to swim against opponents who are
better than we are, it's beneficial."

Healthy Michigan wrestlers look to win tourney
By DANIELLE RUMORE
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan wrestling team
embarks upon the 1994-95 season
with hopes of filling the gaps left by
three departed seniors and of hav-
ing a healthy season with its new
Its new knees?
Well, not exactly new. Let's say
Last season was more of a roller-
coaster ride as some of the Wolverines
suffered lingering knee injuries which
included Jehad Hamdan and Jesse
This season Michigan has a healthy
yet relatively young team and looks to
remain healthy to have a balanced and
consistent season. It will take its new
team, and its new knees, to compete in
the Michigan Open in East Lansing
"Last year, we had three or four
knee injuries that really hurt us,"
Michigan coach Dale Bahr said. "This
year everybody is presently healthy,
and I think we'll have, at least if we
can stay away from the injuries, a
better-balanced team. It all depends
on how some of these guys develop."
One of the prominent injuries last
season was that of the All-American
Rawls who, despite the injury, still
amassed a 20-win season and seventh
place in the NCAA Championships.
He returned this fall and tore cartilage
in his knee. However, it was scoped
A NEW SET OF COURSE OFFERINGS IN
MICROBIOLOGY AND IMMUNOLOGY
The Department of Microbiology and Immunology and the Department of
Biology will continue with the offering of a new course series set in a
modular format. Each one-credit module will run for one third of a se-
mester. In many cases, multiple modules can be combined to make up a
traditional course. This format is designed to allow students to choose
from the various modules to create a program that best fits their educa-
tional objectives and interests.
Prerequisite-introductory microbiology or permission of course director
Module 1 (115-212, T-TH, 10-11:30)
Micro 607 - Microbial Pathogenesis I - This course will emphasize func-
tional and ecological aspects of microbial pathogenicity. The first series
of lectures will include a historical introduction to host/pathogen interac-
tions. The remainder of the series will be lectures on colonization mecha-
nisms and attributes of pathogens.
Module 11 (2/7-3/16, T-TH, 10-11:30)

and he is now clear to wrestle this
"My knee feels good," Rawls said.
"I was an All-American before, so I'd
like to be the national champ."
The Michigan Open is a large meet
with a competitive field. There will be
50-60 wrestlers per each of the 10
weightclasses. Bahr said the high level
of competition should help give the
team the experience it needs to prepare
for the upcoming Las Vegas Invita-
"It's a strong field. Typically, there
are about 600 wrestlers in the tourna-
ment, so it's one of the biggest (early
season) tournaments in the nation,"
Bahr said. "There will probably be
five or six or seven Big Ten schools in
addition to some of the top wrestling
schools in the country.
The regular season lineup of 10
wrestlers is not yet set and may
include some of the new wrestlers.
The lower weight classes are still

vying for the top spots. However,
the Wolverines will use some of
their veterans to help replace the
holes left by All-Americans Brian
Harper, Sean Bormet and Steve
King. These will include seniors
Chad Biggert (167) and Hamdan
(190) and junior Rawls (177).
"We lost three All-Americans
and that's a lot of points off of our
team," Bahr said. "We had a strong
recruiting class two years ago. We
redshirted a couple of those kids
last year, so they are actually sopho-
mores with freshman eligiblity and
that along with two, three or four of
our upperclassmen will give us a
better overall team than we had last
