The Michigan women's golf team
has something to be proud of.

two-day total of 623, but not far

bring plenty of patience, not to mention
transportation and perhaps a tent as well.
With local hotels full, fans who wait-
ed until now to reserve a room likely
will find themselves driving up to an
hour away for a place to stay.
"Indianapolis is virtually sold out of
hotel rooms,'said Annie Knapp, a volun-
teer with the local organizing committee.
The committee is referring visitors to
nearby Lafayette, Carmel, Lebanon and
even Terre Haute, 65 miles away.
"I don't think there's anything here in
the area or downtown. What will be
available will be a lot of smaller hotels,"
said Dawn Schwartzrock, a reservation-
ist for the Sheraton Hotel and Suites at
Keystone Crossing, about 10 miles from
the downtown RCA Dome where the
games will be played.
Each Final Four team gets an allot-
ment of 500 rooms to distribute among
supporters, students and parents. That
does not include rooms for players,
coaches and other team officials, which
are also provided.
Some 48,000 fans are expected to
arrive for the Final Four. Indianapolis has
20,158 hotel rooms to hold them - an
increase of 2,274 since the city last host-
ed the Final Four in 1997, Lotierzo said.
State hires McCallie as
new basketball coach
EAST LANSING - Joanne.
McCallie, who spent the past eight years
as the head coach at Maine, has been
named the head coach of the women's
basketball program at Michigan State,
Athletics Director Clarence Underwood
announced on Monday. McCallie, who
was formally introduced during a tele-
conference call at the Breslin Center,
replaces Karen Langeland who retired
after 24 years as Spartan coach.
During her tenure with the Black
Bears, McCallie, 34, guided Maine to a
record of 167-73, six NCAA
Tournament appearances, two North
Atlantic Conference Championships,
two America East Conference
Championships and five regular-season
"Our goal in searching for a new
women's basketball coach was to find a
person who had demonstrated a successful
winning record and could build upon the
solid program made by Karen Langeland,"
Underwood said. "We believe Joanne
McCallie is that person. She has been
extremely successful and has conducted a
quality program at the University of
Maine. We are very pleased that Joanne
has joined our Spartan family."

The outdoor track and field appeared
desolate Monday afternoon. Practice
was optional. Only a few athletes could
be seen lapping the track from a dis-
tance. Yesterday was a rest day for the
Wolverines, who had arrived home early
this morning after competing in their
second outdoor meet of the season.
This weekend the Wolverines headed
west to compete at the Stanford
Invitational on Saturday and Sunday.
Michigan claimed four top-eight perfor-
mances at the prestigious meet.
Michigan performed well under
heavy competition this past weekend.
The non-scoring meet attracted more
than 3,000 college and high school ath-
letes, which provided them with a level
of competition that pushed their abilities
to their upper most limits.
The Wolverines' best individual per-
formances came in the 400-meter dash.
Michigan finished with three impressive
finishes in the top eight spots within the
event. Freshman sprinter Carly Knazze
ran away with second place with a seA-
sational time of 55.44, while her team-
mates, Regine Caruthers and Maria
Brown, following her lead.
"I was pleased with my time," Knazze
said. "Running in a lower heat helped
me to relax. I felt like there was less
stress on me."
This impressive performance came
only days after Carly returned to practice
recovering from a pulled hamstring,
which had benched her for several
weeks. Having missed the Indoor Big
Ten Championships, she was eager to
get back on the track.
"I felt really bad not being able to
run," Knazze said. "It would have been
my first time competing in the Big
Rather Carly decided to rest up for the
outdoor season that was soon approach-
ing. Placing high during the indoor sea-
son Carly has been a valuable asset to her
team and has exemplified the impact that
many freshman have on their team this
Although Carly has performed excep-
tionally indoors, she is excited to advance
into the outdoor season.
"I expect myself to run faster then I
was capable of in high school; that is my
goal," Knazze said. "I feel confident

"The Stanford Invitational should
help us prepare for the big matches we
will face this season."
