CLUB SPORTS WEEKLY
Edited by Joe Smith
k'M' fencers qualify for Nationals

'Wolverines hold their owen
Although fencing at Michigan is a
club sport, it has been picking varsity
opponents apart. Earlier this month, at
the Fencing Championships in South
Bend, the women's squad placed fourth
and the men placed fifth out of 15 teams.
°The club topped varsity foes of the
likes of Michigan State and Case
WAestern Reserve. The highlight for the
men was their third place finish in Epee,
and the women notched fourth in Sabre
competition.
"It was a great accomplishment,"
fencing club publicity officer Jill
Siegelbaum said. "It felt great that our
club sport took down all those varsity
sports"
Siegelbaum was the women's top fin-
isher, placing third overall in the individ-
ual championships.
"Placing so high felt really good
because I went up against people who
had been training long before I had,"
Siegelbaum said. "They were really

against varsity competition
close bouts and I only beat my last com-
petitor by one touch.'
In addition to Michigan's recent suc-
cess against college foes, five fencers
qualified for U.S. Fencing Association
Nationals at. the Rennisance Fencing
Club in Austin Texas for Division II.
Siegelbaum qualified in the Women's
Epee, as did Carmen Grindatti, while
Linda Novitsky made the cut in the
Women's Foil.
Joseph Way was "Way" good, qualify-
ing in the Men's Sabre, and Matt
Robertson made the cut in the Men's
Foil. The club will also be sending seven
fencers to the Division Ill competition.
The club's next tournament will be
held in the North Campus Recreation
Building on April 1. Spectators are
encouraged to come. If you are interest-
ed in joining the club, contact Club
President BJ Chavez at
bjchavez@ urnich.edit.

Marksman
Shankland named
coach of the year
The Western Intercollegiate Rifle
Conference (WIRC) scored a bulls-eye
when it named Donald Shankland
Coach-of-the-Year. This award came
only three years after Michigan joined
the conference, which boasts the likes
of Ohio State, Missouri, Wisconsin
(Osh Kosh), and Akron. Coach
Shankland led the Wolverines to a sev-
enth place finish at the conference tour-
nament. which was enough to earn
Michigan Most-Improved Team hon-
ors.
-The 77-year old lifetime resident of
Ann Arbor has been competitively
shooting since the early 1930's. A
member of the ROTC Hall of Fame,
and a World War 11 veteran, Shankland
shows no signs of slowing down.
"He's still a great shot, and retire-
ment isn't anywhere in the near future
for him" Mcecight said.
Shankland has displayed an
unselfishness that few people have,
dedicating the last twenty years to
coaching the Rifle Club. He has single-

handedly kept the rifle club alive during
those 20 years, and has overcome many
obstacles in doing so. His knowledge of
the sport is expansive, and his friendli-
ness naturally draws people to him.
"He's a great guy, and is always will-
ing to take as much time as necessary to
help you" McNeight said.
The co-ed club has 12 members and
is relatively young. Despite this,
Shankland has led the team to an unde-
feated record in the other league they
are in, the Michigan Rifle League
(MRL). The club hopes to continue
their winning ways April S in the MRL
tournament.
Although the sport seems to be rising
in popularity (more than 100 people
tried out for 20 spots), the club may not
have a place to practice in the future.
The shooting range where the marks-
men practice may be destroyed if the
proposed Life Science Center is built.
"It's just speculation right now, but
the building of the Life Science Center
may end the existence of the rifle club
if we don't find another place to prac-
tice" McNeight said.
With Shankland at the helm, howev-
er, there is no doubt that riflery at
Michigan will survive.
