Linkers to take on Legends
By John Friedberg
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan men's golf team hopes to have a
weekend that will be talked about for generations
atthe Legends of Indiana Tournament in Franklin,
Ind., tomorrow and Saturday. To accomplish this,
the Wolverines will need to play their best golf of
The Legends of Indiana Tournament features
nine Big Ten teams, including the powerful Ohio
State squad that won the Marshall Invitational
last weekend. In addition to the Buckeyes, the
field features the second-place team from last
weekend, Miami (Ohio).
"As a team we still need to do better," Michi-
gan coach Jim Carras said. "Now we're testing
our strengths against other Big Ten teams as
we're starting to eye the Big Ten tournament.
Hopefully we can have a strong finish this week-
Michigan State, Indiana, Northwestern and
Minnesota, along with Ohio State, have all fin-
ishedin front of Michigan in various tournaments
Michigan will benefit greatly from the return
of junior David Jasper. Jasper, who missed the
last tournament with an illness, has been the
Wolverines' most consistent golfer this season.
"We really missed David last weekend," Carras
said. "We hope that his return will get us going."
Thejunior from Louisville, Ky., will be back to
his familiar No. 1 position. Jasper's return to the
lineup is not the only change that Carras has made
for the weekend
Keith Hinton earned his promotion to the No.
2 slot with a career-best 220 in last weekend's
Marshall Invitational. Hinton's score was the
lowest score for any Wolverine in a competition
this year. His efforts could be the key for Michigan
"Keith Hinton was certainly a breath of fresh air
for us," Carras said. "He had shown signs that he
could play as well as he did at Marshall."
Kyle Dobbs will play this weekend at No. 3,
and is hoping to improve on his 228 at the
Marshall. Dobbs has been the most consistent of
the Wolverines through the course of the year.
His 76.59 average has provided Michigan with
some much needed consistency in an otherwise
At No. 4 for the Wolverines will be freshman
Isaac Hinkle. Hinkle has been plagued by a lack of
consistency this year. He has played in the No.1
spot at times but finds himself in the No. 4 spot this
weekend. His 232 at the Marshall Invite was not a
good indication of how well he can play. His 226
at the Reliastar Collegiate in the fall more accu-
rately reflected his potential.
Competing for the first time this spring will be
freshman Mike Emanuel. Emanuel is coming back
from a strong case of mononucleosis that limited
him to one tournament during the fall season.
Emanuel will be shooting out of the No. 5 spot for
Michigan this weekend. The freshman from
Ottumwa, Iowa, will attempt to better his 79.25
average from the fall tournament.
"Mike has been progressing slowly, but he ap-
pears ready to play this weekend," Carras said.
"This tournament should provide some valuable
experience for him."
In a break from tradition, warm weather is pre-
dicted for this weekend. This would be quite a
change for the Wolverines, who have battled the
weather as well as their consistency all spring.
is this what they mean by 'the blue line'?
The Michigan hockey team, 1996 NCAA champions, were honored by the Detroit Red Wings last night at Joe Louis Arena. The Red Wings
then defeated Winnipeg, 5.2, to earn their record-tying 60th victory. They have two games left in which to claim the record as their own.

most of its leaders are sophomores or fresh-
men. Witness freshman pitcher J.J. Putz. His
three victories are second on the team, and his
earned-run average is only a fraction out of
first. Witness freshman Jason Alcaraz, who
leads the team in at-bats and has hit .370 while
playing in all 29 games.
Although theplayingtime players like fresh-
man Brian Berryman--who pitched two score-
less innings for the Wolverines - got yester-
day isn't much, it's certainly a start. Experi-
ence today is. the key that unlocks the door to
tomorrow's win column.
If the progress of Michigan's regulars is any
indication, the Big Ten had better not take its
eye off this Wolverine squad anytime soon.

The Wolverines received another break in
the sixth inning. After a Griffin single, Carr
reached first on an error by third baseman
Cathy Davie then advanced Griffin on a
sacrifice fly to right field, followed by a Lang
grounder to second that was slow enough to
bring Griffin home.
Whatever it was plaguing the teams' gloves,
they worked it out of their system in the first
game and played an errorless nightcap.
Replacing the Wolverine errors was an ag-
gressiveness absent in the opener.
"We weren't real aggressive in the first
game," Hutchins said. "We sat back; we were
taking a lot of pitches."
A team that doesn't hit a lot of home runs
like Michigan - has to manufacture runs
And that's exactly how they opened the see
"I was just trying to get us to bust out a lise
bit," Hutchins said. "We steal a base, or we get
a good hit and run going - it gets the team
Conrad reached on a fielder's, choice by
Gallis and stole second. Griffin singled to left
field but Conrad had to hold at third. She was
sent home on Carr's sacrifice fly, which tied
the score. Griffin then stole second and scored
on Davie's single to right field.
The Wolverines dropped a sloppy g
and won when they were aggressive and
error-free. It's not a complex equation, but
one that Hutchins is sure to drill into their

In previous years, the Michigan
women's golf team might have settled
for a less-than-perfect result.
However, in the midst of one of their
best seasons ever, the Wolverines are
looking fora top finish at this weekend's
Purdue Boilermaker Invitational.
"Our goal is to win the tournament,"
Michigan coach Kathy Teichert said.
"We have a lot of talent in five players
that have really shown that they can
The festivities at the Purdue Univer-
sity South Golf Course will include Big
Ten foes Purdue, Wisconsin, North-
western and Michigan State; the Spar-
tans edged Michigan by five points in
last weekend's competition. Also
among the 23-team field are Kansas,
Illinois State and Notre Dame.
Michigan is coming off a fifth-place
showingat ablustery Ohio State Course,
where they played only 36 of the in-
tended 54 holes due to poor conditions.
"Our team has been playing against a
lot of adversity," Teichert said. "We
just didn't play very well last week."
The weather will apparently be more
hospitable in West Lafayette, where six
Wolverines will play 36 holes on Satur-
day and, 18 holes Sunday on the par-72,
5,826-yard South Course.
Michigan will bring the five competi-
tors that have propelled the team all sea-
son, who are led by senior captain and
strokeaverage leaderShannon McDonald.
McDonald notched first-and second-place
finishes this fall but has yet to lead the
team in scoring this spring.
Three freshmen also have had
standout seasons. Sharon Park, K v
Loy and Sarah Lindholm provide
cornerstone to the Wolverines' success.
Loy or Park has led the team in scoring
in five of Michigan's nine tournaments
this season, while all three are among
the top four in stroke average.
Junior Wendy Westfall has been a
solid performer for the Wolverines this
season, appearing in all of the team's

spring, the Michigan course will bc

While the prospect of qualifying foi

will remain there as the Wolverines
concentrate on the tournament at hand
"Instead of focusing in on the f1
goal," Teichert said, "we have to

trate on (this meet) and Big Tens."
As the weekend's event will b
