EAST LANSING - Winning a
;game in the last minute against your
.hated in-state rival is a dream of many
athletes. Tamra Geryk and the Michigan
field hockey team fulfilled that dream
. Geryk scored with 26 seconds left in
.regulation to secure a 2-1 victory
against Michigan State at Spartan
The game was an important one for
Michigan for several reasons. It was
playing a state rival that had been shoot-
ing up the rankings, and it offered the
Wolverines a chance to move into sole
possession of first place in the Big Ten.
ecause of the bye on Friday, Michigan
ad all week to focus on the Spartans.
Captain Amy Philbrook, who is
recovering from injury, did not start the
.game, and saw no action in the first
, Michigan head coach Marcia
Pankratz had a plan for the senior.
"She's still a little hurt, and we didn't
want to bring her in and out," Pankratz
said. "We wanted to see how the game
as going and pick a time when she
~ could come in and give a spark."
After a first half in which neither
team could score, Pankratz decided to
make her move early in the second half.
The insertion of Philbrook alone did
not energize the team. To do that, it took
a Michigan State goal.
Michigan State leading scorer
Marleen Tuip took a pass from Sanne
van Nouhuys with 25:17 left in the
game and scored the first goal of the
contest. The freshmen are first and sec-
ond in scoring for the Spartans.
After the goal, Michigan seemed to
take its play to another level. Passes
became more accurate and crisp, scor-
ing opportunities came easier and
Michigan took control of the game.
It took almost 12 minutes, though,
for the Wolverines to tie the score at
one. That goal came offa penalty corner
and was the spark that the Wolverines
needed. Kelli Gannon took the corner
pass and fired a shot on goal which was
deflected past the goalkeeper by
Philbrook. Gannon and Catherine
Foreman were credited with assists.
Over the next 13 minutes, the
Wolverines had opportunities to score
but couldn't convert.
Michigan kept fighting, and with 33
seconds to go, it pushed the ball into the
circle around the Michigan State goal.
After a scramble, Geryk was able to
slide it past Michigan State goalkeeper
The goal moved the No. I1
Wolverines into first place in the Big
Ten alone, and should move them back
into the top 10 nationally.

"The soggy conditions weren't
that bad, but the wind really gets you

wind in your face."
Mortimer, who feels in better
shape this year than last, said that if
it weren't for the wind, he may have
come much closer to his 24:12 of a

"We would have been a little faster

Considering the Big Ten
Championships are back on this

Waking up Sunday morning, the
Michigan women's tennis team, won-
dered whether or not the Wolverine Fall
Invitational could be finished at the new
William Clay Ford Outdoor Tennis
Courts in the midst of a rain storm.
Mother Nature forced the tournament
inside yesterday after two days of out-
door action. Regardless, the team boast-

Overall, Michigan placed first and
second in the Blue Flight singles draw,
the draw with the top four players from
each team, and also won two out of three
at the top two positions in doubles.
The singles tournament was a com-
pass draw - each individual has the
opportunity to continue playing despite
having already had two or more losses

"It was well run and one of the best
tournaments that I've been in," Lund
said.. "Great competition."
It certainly was. The field included
North Carolina, Texas A&M and Notre
Dame - all quality competitors.
* Another part of the tournament that
Michigan coach Bitsy Ritt was particu-
larly pleased with was the play of the
lower seeds, including the No. 2 doubles
team of senior Jennifer Boylan and
junior Erryn Weggenman.
Still, the most interesting match had to
be between the No. I vs. No. 2 matchup
of housemates, Hart and Lund.
"It was a little bit strange, but once I
got out (there), it felt just like a practice
match," Lund said.
Flashes of brilliance could be seen in
all of the tournament, including
Michigan sophomores Maya Canfield
and Marya Farah.
"It was a great event for our program,"
Ritt said. "There were a lot of quality
matches and a lot of quality opponents."
