CMen's lacrosse
slashes State to
finish fall season
Saturday night, the Michigan's men
acrosse club finished its fall scrimmage
season with a commanding 14-4 victory
over Michigan State in Oosterban Field
House to cap its undefeated fall season.
The Wolverines blew the game open
in the third quarter when they scored
seven goals in a row. Creaseman Jeff
Hadwin led the attack for the
Wolverines, scoring six goals, and
Adam Denenberg knotted four goals
and three assists. Pierce Davis added a
pair of goals and Tom Burns and Sloan
Buchan-McGilliard finished the scor-
ing.
The regular season begins in the
spring Feb. 19 when Indiana travels to
Ann Arbor. Until then, the team will
continue to practice and condition until
December. But not every player from
this fall will play in the spring because
the team's coach, John Paul, will have to
make cuts for the team's final spring ros-
ter.
Michigan finished fourth in the
nation last year, and since the
Wolverines are not losing anybody to
graduation, Paul's expectations are high.
"This team is really focussed on the
spring season," Paul said. "We'll be
playing our toughest schedule ever so
we'll need to improve every week."

Rifle Club takes
ain at Walsh Inv.
The Michigan rifle club competed
this weekend at the 43rd annual Walsh
Invitational. Though team standing will
not be known for another week,

NUER EDITED BY DAVID DEN HERDER
Michigan finished with a 3,589 score.
Jon Mieling led the Wolverines with
1,007 points. Neil McNeight and
Joshua Johns tied for second with 889
points and Ray Braekevelt finished in
fourth place for the Wolverines with
804 points.
"We did really well," McNeight said.
"We only had a couple of shooters
returning from last year but the new
shooters did really well."
Hockey club is
No. 1 m region
The Michigan men's hockey club
wrapped up a home-and-home and
home series with John Carroll
Saturday with a 3-3 tie.
Combined with a 7-3 victory over
John Carroll Friday night, the
Wolverines move to 7-1-2 on the
season -- their finest start on
record.
"We dominated the game, and
played hard," said club president
Jason Kiehler. "They had a great
goalie and it's a little disappointing
to tie, especially after winning 7-3."
Fast out of the gates, Michigan has
also captured the No. 1 ranking in
the Southeast Region of the
American College Hockey
Association - also a first for the
Wolverines.
"We're thrilled to be ranked No.
1," Kiehler said. "It's especially
exciting because we're ranked ahead
of teams that are usually ranked
much higher than us."
Next week the Wolverines face
Kentucky, whose program came into
the national spotlight after a scanti-
ly-clad Ashley Judd, a Kentucky
alum, graced the Wildcats' promo-
tional schedule poster last season.

COLUMBUS - As the No. 8
Michigan field hockey team learned
this weekend, revenge is sweet.
Although it is the Michigan stickers'
2-1 victory over Iowa in the Big Ten
Tournament finals that will go into the
record books, it was their semifinal win
over No. 4 Penn State that was the most
emotional.
As Ashley Reichenbach's stroke flew
past Penn State goalie Heidi Leuchte in
the second overtime of Saturday's 2-1
victory, it ended both the Nittany
Lions' domination of the tournament
and Michigan's streak of losses to Penn
State.
Saturday's victory was only the
Wolverines' third win ever against the
Nittany Lions and was their first victo-
ry against Penn State since 1997. The
Nittany Lions had defeated the
Wolverines in six straight contests,
including two dominating perfor-
mances this season.
For some of the Michigan stickers,
this was their first taste of victory over
their archrivals, while for the upper-
classmen it marked a win that was a
long time coming.
"It feels awesome," senior captain
Reichenbach said. "This is the best
game I've ever played in in any form of
sport."
Penn State entered the tournament as
one of the favorites, with a No. 2 seed
and history on its side. The Nittany
Lions had won the last four Big Ten
tournament championships and had
eliminated the Wolverines from tourna-

Beitel, Crumpton lead soccer back to tide

Daily Sports Writer
BLOOMINGTON - Junior Kacy
Beitel and freshman Abby Crumpton are
two forwards with extremely different
styles and physical qualities, but the two
combined to solve the Michigan soccer
team's finishing problem this weekend.
In the opening game against Michigan
State, it appeared the Wolverines were
going to continue having problems capi-
tAlizing on the many opportunities they
were creating.
They outshot Michigan State 32-6, but
:rrant shots, crossbars, and Michigan
State goalie Sara Kloosterman propelled
the game into overtime.
But Crumpton and Beitel caught fire
and lit up the goals against Illinois and
Penn State.
Beitel, who will likely be named the

tournament MVP on Tuesday for her
five goals in the tournament, plays
scrappy at 5-foot-5. Against Penn State,
she scored Michigan's second goal on a
head ball, beating Penn State's tall
sweeper, Megan Mills.
"We've had trouble finishing in the
past,' Beitel said. "You've got to be hun-
gry, and I think this weekend I got some
in there because I was hungry."
Crumpton relies much more on her
strength and quickness. Two of her three
weekend goals came off breakaways,
where she ran past a defender and then
fooled the keeper by knocking the ball to
the near post with the outside of her foot.
"It's a great feeling to come in your
first year and have an impact in winning
a tournament like this." Crumpton said.
PENN STATE REELING: Penn State
senior Kelly Convey peeked over at the

Michigan team's celebration after the
Wolverines' tournament dreams were
realized. When she saw her opposition
cheering and chanting, sporting their
brand new Big Ten champion hats, she
went into her father's arms and wept.
On the face of Convey and her fellow
Nittany Lions, it was painfully obvious
that they had expected to win.
"We won fifteen in a row and we had-
n't lost in two months,' said Penn State
coach Patrick Farmer. "They've done
some really cool things this year, and so
they expect to win every game."
One of the main reasons Penn State's
title hopes were thwarted was the lack'of
success of Big Ten Player of the Year,
Christie Welsh. Welsh was mirrored by
Michigan senior Shanton Poole all day.
When the game was over, Welsh did
have one goal, but Poole left the super-

star frustrated for most of the day.
"I think Shannon Poole is a great
defender." said Farmer. "I don't think
Christie's game has come along to the
point where she can be craft to get away
from people like that."
At 5-10, Welsh has a rare combination
of speed, strength, and ball handling abil-
ities that lead her to 22 goals in the Big
Ten regular season, the most ever. She had
no problem creating scoring opportunities
against Wisconsin on Friday, and
Minnesota on Saturday, netting one goal.
While Welsh wasn't completely pre-
vented from getting opportunities, Poole's
relentless pressure had the Penn State star
wom down by the end of the game.
"Shannon thrives on those kind of
match-ups," said Michigan coach
Debbie Belkin. "She definitely frustrat-
ed Christie."

ment play in each of the past three
years.
In this game, however, Michigan
took the opportunity to rewrite the his-
tory books. It dominated from the ot
set, refusing to be intimidated by its,.
previous lack of success against the
Nittany Lions.
"I definitely think this was a ste,
freshman forward Jessica Rose said.
"We've overcome them and were
going to be on the right track from here
on out. I think a lot of times, because-
it's Penn State, we get intimidated, but
we're definitely over that now. We
know we can beat them."
Michigan coach Marcia Pankratz
agreed.
"It's huge" she said. "I think mental-
ity-wise it gets us over the hump." 0
The win solidified the Wolverines
place among the country's elite teams,
as Penn State is one of field hockey's
most storied programs. The Nittany
Lions have been a force in the Big Ten
ever since joining the conference in
1992 and have made 18 straight NCAA
Tournament appearances.
"It's great for the program because
they're a top program and when you c
come out and beat top programs 1W
this, it's something we can build on,"
Reichenbach said.
As the team piled on top of
Reichenbach after her game-winning
goal, it became clear that this was not
just another victory for the
Wolverines.
"This means everything"junior mid
fielder Jeanne Shin said. "I hate Penn
State and this means the world to me,

ers fresh was of maximum importance
to Pankratz.
"I think the difference is that we pla
as a team and we had almost everyone
the match constantly rotating in every
six (or) seven minutes, so everyone tried
and continued to have fresh legs,"
Pankratz said.
Though Michigan lost to both Iowa
and Penn State during the regular sea-
son, they played well against both
teams. This, they proved that playing
well was no fluke.
"(Winning the tournament) solidifj
the fact that we're for real,' Pakr
said.
Michigan got the opportunity to play
Iowa only after an intense 2-1 victory
over Penn State, where Ashley
Reichenbach scored on a penalty stroke
with 12:23 left in double overtime.
Michigan's win over Penn State was
only the team's third-ever against thet
Nittany Lions. Michigan's Gannon
scored with 34:08 left to play in the
game with Foreman assisting.

Wednesday against Wright State in the first round
of the NCAA Tournament.
In Saturday's semifinal match against Illinois,
Michigan held off a two-goal rally to win 4-3.
Michigan jumped out to an early two-goal lead
in the first nine minutes with goals by Crumpton
and Beitel. In the 17th minute, Illinois entered the
scoring with a strike by Emily Brown.
A goal by Carly Williamson gave Michigan a 3-
1 halftime lead.
Mari Hoff's insurance goal at the beginning of
the second half proved to be the game-winner.
Second half goals by Lindsay Johnson and Sue
Hodson were not enough to get Illinois back in the
game.

In the first half, Kacy Beitel headed an Emily

A casual observer might credit Kloosterman's
play for keeping Michigan State within one goal at
halftime despite the Wolverines out-shooting the I
Spartans, 18-3. However, the deceptive numbers
do not tell that the majority of Michigan's shots t
were from out-side the eighteen yard line.
In the second minute of the second half, Spartan
Ann Cieszkowski received a red card after tack-
ling Abby Crumpton on a breakaway.
Despite playing a man down, the Spartans dic-
tated the second half by creating numerous quali-
ty scoring opportunities.
With only ten minutes remaining, Kate
Knorring tied the game, sending it into overtime.

After Rose's blind shot, the Hawkeyes
felt a sense of urgency and battled their
way back. Iowa's chance came with 5:47
left in the half, as they had an opportu-
nity to score on a penalty corner.
Freshman Tiffany Leister smoked a shot
by junior goalie Kati Oakes 10 seconds
later with 5:37 left in the first to make

In the second half, the game went
back and forth, with neither team domi-

incredible saves to preserve the victory
and give Michigan the crown.

games during the weekend, including
one that went into double-overtime, and
