Spartans snap 'M' stickers win streak
By B.J. Leia
Daily Sports Writer
You win some and you lose some.
The Michigan field hockey team
came to that conclusion this weekend
after defeating St. Louis, 6-0, on
Saturday and falling to Michigan State
in East Lansing on Sunday, 3-2.
The overtime loss - Michigan's first
defeat in the Big Ten - knocked the
Wolverines to 10-3 on the season and 2-
1 in the Big Ten. Michigan is 1-1 in over-
time games this season.
Despite being able to rest most of
their starting players in Saturday's
blowout at Ocker Field, the Spartans
were able to stop Michigan's winning
streak at five games.
"It was a typical Michigan versus
Michigan State field hockey match,"
Michigan coach Marcia Pankratz said.
"This has become an outstanding rivalry
in this sport."
After Michigan State's Sarah Wilson
forced overtime with a goal 12:07 into
the second half, the Spartans' Rayna
Hiscox broke the Wolverines' collective
hearts with an overtime goal. The win-
ner came with 4:31 remaining in the first
"We had two shots that would have
been goals but they were blocked by
defenders," Pankratz said.
Meredith Weinstein opened the scor-
ing for the Wolverines on Sunday.
Michigan has made a habit of opening
up early leads in games this season, and
Sunday's game was no exception.
Weinstein's goal came just three minutes
into the game.
The Spartans tied the score at one
with a goal from Jill Lusher at 21:39, but
the Wolverines regained the lead less
than two minutes later when Julie Flachs
scored on a penalty stroke. It was
Flachs's fourth goal of the weekend and
21st of the season.
With her last goal, Flachs tied the
Michigan record for goals in a season
and has seven more regular season
games to break the record.
Her three goals on Saturday helped
Michigan shutout St. Louis. She scored
once each on an inside shot, a penalty
corner and a penalty shot.
While the seasoned senior was busy
recording her third hat trick of the sea-
son, a freshman scored the first goal of
her collegiate career. Regan Wulfsberg
closed the scoring for the Wolverines.
"I don't get to play that much,"
Wulfsberg said. "So it's nice to con-
tribute to the team and play a part in our
win when I do get in."
Also scoring goals for the Wolverines
on Saturday were Lindsay Babbit, who
scored the game-winning goal 47 sec-
onds into the game, and Amy Philbrook.
After beating St. Louis, 6-0, the Michigan field hockey team lost to Michigan
State in overtime, ending its five-game winning streak.
trew takes pride in second place

In what was supposed to be a
weekend of self-evaluation, the
Michigan crew team beat Cornell for
the first time in the program's two-
inishing second in the Open
Eight - the most important crew
race at the Head of Ohio in
Pittsburgh - the Wolverines also
came close to knocking off Brown's
After only one invitational, the
Wolverines have great expectations
for their future.
Not only do they have a number of
returning seniors, but they have a
mber of experienced freshmen and
sophomores who hope to increase
the program's success.
"The team looks like we have a lot
of potential," said senior captain
Lisa Labadie. "We had a solid per-
formance this weekend, which will
give us momentum to improve."
The Wolverines swept the pairs
race with first- second- and third-
whey also won the Club Eight race
as well as the Four.
The impressive showing is putting
a sparkle in the eyes of the seniors,
who say that this year they might ful-
fill their goal of beating Brown.
"This is something we've been
dreaming of for years," Labadie said.
"Every year the seniors have taken
the program to higher levels. Before
we leave we would like to continue
abadie also said that the experi-
ence and tough work ethic of the
underclassmen may contribute to
attaining their goals.
Melanie Duncan is one of the
three underclassmen who participat-
ed this weekend in the open-eight
"I rowed for St. Catherine's in
Ontario," Duncan said. "Where I'm
from, we have huge competitive
"At Michigan, we wake up at 5
a.m. We start rowing in the dark. We
have a light on the boat. We get to
see the sun rise."
"On the varsity program, people
have rowed at least for one or two
Experience also is a factor for
"Most (underclassmen) have
rowed in the summer and overseas,"
Labadie said. "They're really adding
to the program."
Even with all the weekend's
excitement, the rowers could not
keep their minds off of senior
Jeanette Stawski, who faces back
surgery tomorrow for a herniated
"We're really looking forward to
her return," Labadie said. "We're all
pulling for her and waiting for her to
come back. She's ready to take this
step and put things into action."
Last spring, doctors told Stawski
that she could either rest her back or
After resting over the summer,
Stawski's condition did not improve,
and she now hopes to join the team
in the spring following a successful
"She's a great leader and a great
person," Duncan said.
