Carr sets precedent
with scholarship

opportunity to do that, I would," Carr
said. "For a long time, women's stu-
dent athletes haven't had an equal
opportunity."
Carr said he hoped former
Michigan athletes would follow suit
and endow scholarships.
"It will set a precedent for others
to follow," Michigan Athletic
Director Tom Goss said. "We haven't
had any coach do anything like this.
It's a unique situation.
"The future of Michigan athletics
depends on having scholarship
endowments"
INJURY UPDATE: After keeping
injuries hush-hush all season, Carr

finally owned up to a few of them.
Cornerback Brandon Williams, who
missed the Northwestern game due
to a concussion and an unspecified
injury in his left leg suffered last
week, will miss the rest of the season
with a broken leg.
This is despite Williams' assur-
ances on Saturday that he'd return
this season, and the fact that he was
wobbling around the stadium with-
out crutches.
Grady Brooks, a linebacker who's
missed the last two games with an
unspecified injury, is out for the rest
of the season. Now that we know he
won't return, will Carr finally say
what the injury is?
"No," Carr said. "I'm not going to
comment on that."

Comerback Brandon Williams, who missed the Northwestern game, is out for the
rest of the season after a concussion and a leg injury.

into (the game) because it was Penn
State and we knew that we were that
much closer to winning (the Big Ten
tournament.) The coaches said to
tackle (Quan Nim) hard any time she
got the ball."
Midfielder Ali Balmer, who did not
play against Penn State, showed up in
a major way for the championship
game, Balmer, who started against
the Hawkeyes, was physically
engaged all game and played
extremely tough when it counted
most.
"When I came out today, I was
really determined and wanted to
make my presence known," Balmer
said, "I was really fired up and want-

ed to prove that I wanted to be out
there."
Catherine Foreman played physi-
cally throughout the tournament and
single-handedly sparked her team-
mates with her intensity.
"Last week in practice one of our
coach told us not to get pushed off
the ball," Foreman said. "I tried to
really bring that to this weekend
because if one player on our team
does it, it usually works pretty well in
firing up the rest of the team.
"You take a few (hits), but hopeful-
ly you give enough back. I'm sure it's
going to hurt tomorrow, but I'm feel-
ing pretty good now."
The Wolverines played relentless
field hockey, and for the first time
ever, brought the Big Ten tournament
Championship trophy to Ann Arbor.

The Michigan men's tennis team
finished its winter season at the ITA
Regional Championships in Madison
this past weekend.
Seniors John Long and Matt
Wright, seeded fourth and 12th
respectively, led the Wolverines to a
good performance.
"We've worked pretty hard this
fall and we've made some strides,"
Michigan coach Mark Mees said.
"But we still have things we need to
work on."
The Wolverines had five players
competing in singles and three teams
competing in doubles.
In singles, the Wolverines' experi-
ence showed. Senior Matt Wright
advanced to the quarterfinals before
losing to Northwestern's Brad
Erickson, the 24th-seed, 6-7, 2-6.
Iowa's Tyler Cleveland, the No. 3-
seed, stopped senior John Long in
the fourth round.
Sophomores Danny McCain. Ben
Cox and Henry Beam were also in
the singles draw and advanced to the
second round.
In the doubles tournament, Wright
did not experience the same success.
Mees teamed Wright with McCain to
form the fourth-seed, but they were
upset by Illinois' Nathan Zeder and
Matthew Snyder in their first match,
8-3.

John I ong and Brad McFarlane
also lost to an Illinois teamin t*
second round. Second-seeded team
of Jeff Laski and Jamal Parker
defeated them, 8-6.
Ben Cox and Senior Ron Nano
advanced to the third round, where
they lost a close match to the third-
seeded Michigan State team of
Francisco Trinidad and Ken'
Kigongo.
The ITA Regional Championships
are single-elimination and feature
96-player singles draw and a60
team doubles draw. The winner and
runner-up of the singles tournament
and the winner of the doubles tour-
nament advance to the ITA National
Championships.
The fall season is an opportunity
for the team to learn what they will
need to work on for the upcoming
season.
"Right down the lineup we ha
things we need to get better at,
Mees said. "We will continue to do
some individual work over the next
two months."
The Wolverines will be able to
avenge their losses to Big Ten oppo-
nents when they begin their season
in January.
"We have a good bunch of kids
and everyone has been working real-
ly hard," Mees said. "I'm real ,
excited for the upcoming season."

Senior Matt Wright made a quarterfinal appearance at the ITA Regional
Championship before bowing out with a 6-7, 2-6 loss.
