When one thinks of national col-
legiate powerhouses, rarely does Cal
State-Sacramento come to mind.
But the Michigan men's volley-
ball team is one of the first to mention
Sacramento State as oneofthe nation's
Friday night, the Wolverines (6-2
Big Ten, 7-3 overall) were given a
taste of West coast volleyball when
Sacramento State defeated them in
three straight games.
It was, in fact, a sign of things to
come for Michigan as they fell to
Sacramento again in the semifinals of
the tournament, 15-5, 15-7 Saturday
night atthe CCRB.
Even though the Wolverines didn't
win a game against Sacramento all
weekend, the team found positives in
"We did a great job matching up
against a national powerhouse,"
Michigan coach Jennifer Slosar said.
"For a team that was about six inches
on us in height for each player, we
still proved that we could play with
The Wolverines hoped toput their
first three game-loss of the season
behind them heading into Saturday's
Collegiate Classic Tournament.
The 40-team field included some
of the best club programs in the na-
tion, including Sacramento State,
Michigan, Park College, Graceland
College and Michigan State.
The field was divided into four
five-team pools for a preliminary
round-robin. Each match in the round
was two games and the teams which
won the most games from their four-
match slate went on to the eight-team
tournament round. The top two teams
from each individual pool moved on
to single elimination play.
The Wolverines rolled through
their round-robin action. They lost
their only game in the preliminary
rounds against Louisville, 15-8, but
rebounded in the second game to sal-
vage a split, 15-13.
Michigan then went on to win
every other game in round-robin play.
The Wolverines whipped Calvin Col-
lege 15-5, 15-10, got by Cornell 15-7,
15-8, and doubled up Illinois State
15-10, 15-10. Their seven victories
placed them fourth overall in the eight-
team tournament and they drew a
tough Illinois team in the first round.
In the first game of the best-of-H
three match, the Illini had their way
with the Wolverines, winning 15-3.
Led by the powerful play of middle4
Andy Nedzelwho hadnumerous kills
and blocks throughout the game, Illi-
nois scored 13 of the first 14 points.
The beginningof the second game
looked as if the Wolverines' bad luck4

It was just a mirage as Michigan i

a 15-7 win.
In the final game, the Illini got off
to a 6-4 lead before the Wolverines
called a time-out. Whatever coach i
Slosar said must have clicked, be-
cause Michigan went on a 8-M run to
go up, 12-7, including six straight
blocks by Chad Engel, Brad YeagerA
The match ended on a controver-

With dual meets at indiana and
Purdue Saturday, the No. 1 7 Michigan
wrestling team hadmuch to prepare fr.
One thing it didn't expect was an
unannounced chanc of time with it's
meet against Indiana.
After heating Purdue, 25-13in a
dual meet that started at noon, the Wol-
verines (4-2, 6-3) arrived in
Bloomington at 5:311).,cseemingly with
plenty of time to preipairefo(,r their 7:30
match against the No. 2 1 Hoos iers.
Upon its arreael, however Michi-
gan as told it would be wrestling at 6
p.m. instead of the expected 7:30 p.m.
"It was a big push to get ready,"
Michigan freshman Jeff Catrabone said
of the pre-match confusion. We had to
put our stuff on and they wanted to get
us out there and be ready to go.
"We didn't have time to get men-
tally ready. If we had more time I think
we could have wrestled better."
To make matters worsd, the Wol-
verines were wrestling without two of
their best performers in junior 177-
pounder Jesse Rawls Jr. who is out
indefinitely with a knee injury, and
150-pounder Jake Young, who injured
his ribs in practice.
With the injuriesnto Rawls and
Young, Wolverines coach Dale Bahr
resembled a dealer at a casino more
than a wrestling coach Saturday in hav-
ing to shuffle his lineup in order to till
the holes created by the two injuries.
In both matches Saturday, Mike
Ellsworth, Chad Biggert and Catrabone
moved up one weight class, while non-
regulars Drew Pullen an Bill Lacure
were inserted into the lineup to com-
pensate for the injuries.
Although the shuffling wasn't much
of a factor in the win over Purdue (0-3-
1 1-7,), it caused the Wolverines serious
problems against Indiana.
Ellsworth and Pullen both lost by
major decision at 142 and 150 pounds
while Brandon Howe was pinned at
126. In addition, 11l8-pounder Matt
Stout and 1 34-pounder Brian Aparo
both fell by decision to give the Hoo-
siers a 20-0 lead going into the final five
Lacure, Catrabone, Biggert, Jehad
Hamdan and Airron Richardson swept
those final matches for the Wolverines
to avoid embarrassment, but in the end
Michigan still fell short, 20-1 5.

The rematch yielded the same re-
sults as the prior night. Michigan
battled Sacramento early as neither
team could get rolling The Wolver-
ines trailed, 3-2, but that was as close
as the match would get as Sacramento
tallied seven straight points, pulling
out to a 10-2 lead.
Sacramento's blocking was just
too much for Michigan.
"We are usually very successful
with our outside offensive game,"
coach Slosar said. "But their blocking
just shut us down."
With the finesse of its setting game
and the power of its kills, Sacramento
set the tone of the second game,jump-
ing out to a 6-1 advantage on its way
to a 15-7 victory.

"When you are in the early stages
of tapering, you feel sluggish," Stone
said. "Everyone did okay, but we all
felt sluggish - we really weren't
paying attention to (the records)."
Several Wolverines were not
found in their usual events, as coach
Jim Richardson placed the swimmers
in their second-and-third best events
to help them continue training through
the meet. Yet Michigan still managed
to sweep the 200 backstroke,and bring
in top-two finishes in the 200 IM, 500
