Soccer
hits the
road for
a pair
By Mike Rubi
For the Daily
The Michigan women's soccer team
is going on the defensive this weekend.
The Wolverines (2-1-1 Big Ten,.8-2-
2 overall) will go on the road for a pair
of conference games.
Tomorrow, Michigan heads to
Evanston to take on Northwestern (2-3,
7-4-1) and Sunday, the Wolverines will
travel to cheese country to face No. II
Wisconsin (4-0-1, 9-2-2).
The Badgers currently hold the top
spot in the Big Ten.
The Wolverines are hoping to change
their fortunes as they come off last
weekend's conference losses to No.15
Penn State and No.17 Minnesota at
home.
However, Michigan is not going to
rely on luck to snap its current four-
game losing streak.
"We have to be aggressive and match
our opponents intensity," Michigan
coach Debbie Belkin said. "Above all
else, we have to play smarter defense."
Belkin anticipates two physical
games this weekend.
"Northwestern is a skilled team with
a lot of toughness,' Belkin said.
"While Wisconsin, the conference
leader, is a physical team in the mold of
Minnesota:'
As the last line of defense, sopho-
more goalie Jessica Jones looks to play
a key role in taming the offensive
attacks of both the Wildcats and the
Badgers.
Jones is in pursuit of the single-sea-
son save record.
With 54 saves and counting,she is
just 31 saves short of the record (85)
held by senior Jori Welchans.
Jones has a 1.64 goals-against aver-
age and holds a 3-4-2 record.
How does Jones prepare to face
teams with potent offenses like
Northwestern and Wisconsin?
"I just go into games looking to be
consistent and keep the ball out of the
net," Jones said. "I am basically satis-
fied with my game, but I need to work
on head balls and crosses."
Michigan's defense has been brilliant
in some games, and it has had its prob-
lems in others.
"We are just getting used to each
other and getting our communication
down around the goal," Jones said.
The Wildcats are coming off a 3-I
victory over Indiana. And this is the
same team that shutout No. 15 Penn
State, 4-0.
Northwestern's starting goalie,
Wendy Scholz, has played in all of the
Wildcats' games this year, compiling a
7-4-1 record with a 1.24 goals-against
average
"She has played in all but-20 min-
utes of this season,' Wildcats coach

LSA senior Tom Dolan, an Olympic gold-medalist and former Michigan swimmer, talks about his asthma yesterday.
Dolan swims race against asthma

By Pranay Reddy
Daily Sports Writer
He has been a champion in all walks of life.
However, despite a dominant college career and a gold medal from
last summer's Olympic Games, former Michigan swimmer Tom Dolan
probably never inspired people like he did last night at the Kellogg Eye
Center.
The LSA senior, who suffers from exercise-induced asthma, was part
of the University of Michigan Pediatric Pulmonary Division's Family
Asthma Series.
The presentation also included Michigan men's swimming coach Jon
Urbanchek, Dolan's personal physician Dr. Martin Hurwitz, and
Michigan pediatric asthma fellow Dr. Wan Chong-Tsai.
However, among the group of knowledgeable speakers, Dolan was the
obvious show-stopper. The audience for the presentation consisted pri-

manly of children with asthma as well as their parents.
As Dolan entered the room, children watched with wide eyes and
cameras flashed. His presence excited the children beyond words, as
most smiled and pointed in silence.
Dolan understood the difficulties his young admirers face daily, yet he
encouraged the children to press on through recollections of his past
experiences.
"I have had (asthma) since I was 12 years old, so I'm going on nine
years of having to deal with it and having to learn to how to get around
it and overcome it," he said.
During his visit, Dolan also made sure to stress to the children that it
was possible to live and succeed in athletics with asthma.
"You are not the outsider or the loser," he said. "When I was growing
up, kids who had asthma were seen as people who weren't great athletes.
