M' captains to play
With nations best
By Jason Ezeott
DI)ay Sports Wr ner
Apparently, a No. 9 national rank-
ing wasn't good enough to get the
Michigan field hockey team into the
NCAA's 1 2-team tournament.
At least the Wolverines can take
consolation that its senior co-cap-
tains, Amy Philbrook and Loveita
Wilkinson, were selected to represent
Michigan against the nation's best in
the Division I North/South Field
Hockey All-Star Game, tomorrow, as
part of field hockey's Final Four
"It's a great honor for them to rep-
resent Michigan," Michigan coach
Marcia Pankratz said. "They were
great leaders for us this year, and they'
put their heart and soul into every-
thing this season."
With the exception of those who
will be playing in the Final Four,
Michigan's captains will be partici-
pating with the nation's top field
hoc key seniors. Needless to say, the
level of competition will be extreme-
Pankratz said that experts from the
cast coast, where field hockey's tradi-
tional "powerhouses" reside, may be
biased against the accomplishments
of her team and her players. But she,
doesn't buy it.
"I think Loveita and Amy can pla
with anybody in the country
Philbrook and Wilkinson's creden-
tials back up their coach's statement
- both were named first-team
regional All-Americans and both
have legitimate shots at making the
national All-America team.
Wilkinson, who is from New
Castle, Del., is looking forward to
making the trip back toward horne ty
play one more field hockey game.
"I'm glad I'm going back home.
It's going to be a good break for me,"
Wilkinson said. "I'm more interested
in the team. I'd much rather have
gone to the NCAAs. I just hope I can
show som'e people that wc belonged."
Pankratz is proud of the job her
captains did this year.
"They always came to play and
always played harder than everyone,"
Pankratz said. "They will be missed."

Vignier and Asselin, who combined
for 23 points and 19 rebounds, picked the
right game to shake out the cobwebs that
had affected them in the previous losses.
When Bullock picked up his third foul
and sat out the final eight minutes of the
first half, Michigan was forced to rely on
their size advantage over the Titans.
And that they did, as Vignier, Asselin

from Michigan's run, cutting the lead to
