Michigan, but the

against Big Ten

Following the Michigan field hockey team's
4-0 victory over Central Michigan yesterday,
co-captain Michelle Smulders explained her
team's disposition following two weekend loss-
es to conference rivals Iowa and Northwestern.
"We had a meeting (Monday)," she said.
"And we decided that the season is totally in our
"We have to use building blocks to get from
now to the Big Ten tournament."
After yesterday's stomping of the
Chippewas, it looks like the Wolverines were
prepared to make their climb out of the depths
of the Big Ten. However, after having played
the rest of the conference and coming out with
a 1-4 record, the Wolverines look to have a long
road ahead of them as they play the back end of
a difficult Big Ten season.
"We didn't play particularly well against
Iowa and Northwestern," Michigan coach
Marcia Pankratz said. "We had to really sit
down and re-evaluate our goals for the rest of
the season. We did that and put a positive twist
on the weekend and tried to learn from it."
With only Big Ten foes looming on the
Wolverines' schedule, Michigan had to begin
its resurrection with a non-conference win. The
team did just that yesterday and seems excited
to continue forward rather than dwell on the
"We are definitely going to be fired up (in
the future),' Smulders said. "We are looking to
play great as a team. We have been passing the
ball really well in the midfield, as well as push-
ing the ball (upfield)."
Despite her team's success against Central
Michigan, Pankratz stills feels there is plenty of
work to be done before the Wolverines head to
East Lansing on Sunday to face Michigan State.
"I think first of all mentally, we need to stay
focused for 70 minutes" she said. "We have
lapses where we're not disciplined with our par-
Mental lapses go unnoticed against over-
matched squads like Central Michigan, but
Pankratz knows this is anything but the case
against the likes of Michigan State, Iowa and
the rest of the Big Ten.
"You make a mental error today, and you can
kind of get away with it," she said. "If you make
a mental error against Michigan State, you are
going to pay."
So far this season, Michigan has given more
than its share of dough to the rest of the confer-
ence, but Michigan State still seems to be wait-
ing for payday. The Wolverines beat the
Spartans in Ann Arbor earlier this season, 4-3.
The win was the first ,in the Big Ten for
Michigan this year, and the Wolverines are pre-
pared to make the Spartans their second as well.
"We have a (five-game) season now, and we
just have to make the most of it," Helber said.

who overcame exercise-induced asthma
to capture a gold medal at this past sum-
mer's Olympiad, will speak tonight ata

"There are approximately 15-20 mil-
lion individuals with asthma when you

asthma," Hurwitz said. "The perma-

Olympics, particularly the ones who ar,
asthmatic, really demonstrated that peo

disabilities can actually perform at
extremely high levels and function very
In citing Michigan athletes with asth-
ma who participated in the Olympics,
Hurwitz was referring to Dolan and sil-
ver medal-winner Tom Malchow.
"We're just going to go and talk about
athletics, especially about what we do for
asthmatic people in a program liJ4
swimming," Urbanchek said.
The appearance of Dolan and
Urbanchek should be valuable in a pro-
gram of this nature.
"Tom and coach Urbanchek are high-
profile individuals. Their experiences
with asthma, the coach talking about his
dealings with asthmatic athletes and Tom
from his personal experience I think will
be inspirational to the kids that will be
there and to the athletes and coaches th
will be coming;' Hurwitz said.
