Men's rowing douses Bucks
Blue sweeps Ohio State on Huron before Big Game, 32-0

With nothing to lose,
spikers defeat Illinois

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

01

For the fourth consecutive year,
the Michigan men's rowing club
retained the WolverBuck Oar by
beating Ohio State's crew.
The Wolverines swept the four-
event meet, which is annually held
on the morning of the football game
between the same schools.
Michigan dismantled Ohio State
32-0 - it was the first time in the
rivalry's short history that there has
been a sweep.
The Wolverines' 'A' boat won the
frosh race, 5:33.3 to 5:35.71.
The first varsity team won 4:33.82
to 4:42.43, the second varsity team
won 4:45.47 to 5:01.39 and the third
varsity team won 4:51.44 to 5:08.44.
Soccer eliminated
in national playoff
The Michigan men's club soccer
team (18-0-2), ranked No. I in region
Il1, headed into the NIRSA national
championship tournament at Georgia
Southern hoping to win it all in its final
year of club status. But the Wolverines
lost in their quarterfinal match-up
against defending NIRSA champion
BrighamYoung, 3-1.
"The loss was a real disappoint-
ment,'junior defender Brian Peters said.
On Friday night, the Wolverines
broke open the scoring against the
Cougars in the tenth minute of the sec-
ond half. But two red cards with 30 min-
utes to play would doom Michigan. The
Cougars capitalized on the under-
manned Wolverines, scoring three goals
to win the game. Brigham Young would
go on to win the championship game on
Saturday over Texas Tech.
In Thursday's group play action, the
Wolverines split their two games.
Michigan outmatched Colorado, 1-0,
but lost to the eventual runner-up, Texas
Tech, 2-1. Michigan defeated Navy, 1-0,
in a must-win game on Friday afternoon
to advance out of group play.

"This was the first time we've
ever swept them so it was good,"
Michigan coach Greg Hartsuff said.
"Varsity is close to getting back on
track from a couple weeks ago.
Some people underachieved and
we've lit some fires."
The spring season does not start
for the Wolverines until the last
weekend in March, when they will
row against Notre Dame and
Michigan State.
"They will be good opponents (for
the first race)" Hartsuff said.
"They are both weak teams so it
will be nice to go out and get one
under the belt."

Last year, Michigan won the NCSA
national championship. The Wolverines
were unable to repeat as champions
because the NCSA no longer exists.

By Jon Zemke
Daily Sports Writer
With everything at stake and noth-
ing to lose, the Michigan volleyball
team entered this weekend's matches
with a new outlook on how to play the
game.
"We have nothing to lose," middle
blocker Joanna Fielder said. "We don't
want to finish our season on a bad
note."
So the Wolverines don't have any-
where to go but up for the end of the
season. They've already lived the tri-
umph of the non-conference season
and the downfall during the Big Ten.
The team said that there wasn't any
sense in reliving the past.
But there is no reason for the
Wolverines to give up on the future.
Michigan had four Big Ten matches
left going into Friday's match against
Illinois, and the never-say-die attitude
the Wolverines pride themselves on
was evident as they beat Illinois in four
games.
"It feels really good," Fielder said.
"We talked about it before the match
that we have nothing to lose now. We
need to go out there and finish our sea-
son on a good note."
But this new indifference to conse-
quences didn't prove to be the key to
winning Saturday night, as Michigan
fell to Indiana in four games.
"We have to be balanced." Michigan
coach Mark Rosen said. "Last night
we had all six positions on. Tonight we
weren't quite as balanced."
That seems to be the difference in
which Michigan team shows up - the
cohesive squad or the one that plays
off-balance and out-of-sync. The latter
has been present for most of the Big
Ten season and was the team that
showed up in the loss to Ohio State last
week.
"We could have made a decision to
die after Ohio State match, go 0-4 and
let the rest of the season go down the

tubes," outside hitter Nicole Kacor
said. "But we didn't let that happen. I
think we're playing a lot harder than in
the past."
The effort has always been there for
Michigan, but this weekend the team's
cohesiveness stood out. Even in the
loss to Indiana the Wolverines played
well together, making it close by never
giving up a string of points.
Against Illinois, the fourth-place
team in Big Ten, Michigan played
point-for-point again. But when it
came down to it, the Wolverines
played better as a team than they had
all season, Rosen said.
"We talked a lot about getting the
entire team on at the same time,"
Rosen said. "That's something we've
been striving for the last five-six
weeks. Tonight we were very bal-
anced. We were very solid from player
one to seven, and that made a big dif-
ference."
That, and the Wolverines finally
played well enough as a team to go for
the throat at the end. Against Illinois,
the killer instinct was there for
Michigan and it was even showed up
against Indiana at times.
"Whenever the game was on the line
we went after it," Rosen said. "We
were playing solid aggressive defense,
because we were going to win the
game instead of waiting for them to
lose it."
But when it came down to it this
weekend, the Wolverines never rolled
over. They never played as individuals.
They played as a team developing in a
highly competitive conference.
"One play that was indicative of that
was when Behnke went over the scor-
er's table," Rosen said. "That's the
mentality that the team has adopted.
I'd rather them go the limit.
"We'll try and stop what we can
because that's the type of volleyball we
play."

D.C. United shuts
out L.A. for MLS
championship
OXBORO, Mass. (AP) - Three
years after overcoming a torrential rain
and a two-goal deficit to beat the Los
Angeles Galaxy in the inaugural MLS
Cup, the United won the rematch 2-0 on
Sunday for their third title in the league's
four-year history.
Jaime Moreno scored first, and
Washington made it 2-0 when goalkeep-
er Kevin Hartman badly misplayed a ball
in front and passed it to Ben Olsen for a
virtual empty-netter. Olsen was picked
as the game's Most Valuable Player.
The Galaxy played most of the game
without captain Robin Fraser, the MLS
defender of the year, who broke his col-
larbone after being pushed from behind
by Roy Lassiter in the seventh minute.
An crowd announced at 44,910
enjoyed a 63-degree day - a sharp con-
trast to the 1996 game played at Foxboro
Stadium. Playing on a slick field,
Washington rallied from a two-goal
deficit to tie it in the final 18 minutes
before Eddie Pope won it in overtime.
D.C. took the lead in the 19th minute
when Marco Etcheverry's cross was
headed into the center by defender Steve
Jolley. Lassiter's shot was stopped by
Hartman, but the rebound went off
Lassiter to Moreno; he beat the sprawl-
ing goalkeeper to make it 1-0.
Los Angeles had a chance in the
32nd minute, but Danny Pena's shot
went off the post and, on the rebound,

Richie Williams clearcd the rebound
from Carlos Hermosillo off the goal line.
Washington made it 2-0 in the third
minute of injury time after the first half
when Hartman chose not to pick up a
rolling ball and dribbled into trouble.
After escaping one attacker, he kicked it
directly to Olsen; Hartman was in no
position to recover, and Olsen lofted it
easily toward the back, of the net.
Tomlinson breaks
single-game rush
record: 406 yards
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -
Texas Christian's LaDainian
Tomlinson broke the NCAA
Division I-A rushing record, gaining
,406 yards and scoring six touch-
downs Saturday in a 52-24 victory
over Texas-El Paso.
Tomlinson topped the record held
by Tony Sands of Kansas, who
rushed for 396 yards on 58 carries
against Missouri on Nov. 23, 1991.
While Tomlinson is the first
major-college rusher to gain 400
yards in a game, he is the sixth over-
all in the NCAA. The record is 441
yards, by Dante Brown of Division
III Marietta College.in 1996.
Tomlinson had touchdown runs of
70 and 63 yards on consecutive car-
ries in the fourth quarter. He broke
the Division I-A record with a 7-yard
carry on his 43rd and final carry of
the game.
