The Wolverines could do little to hold back the offensive prowess of Michigan
State Saturday at Elbel Filed.
Scrummer! Spartans win, 39-0
Women's rugby club shutout by State on Elbel Field

As many students made their way
to Michigan Stadium Saturday
morning, the Michigan women's
rugby club could be seen clashing
with Michigan State on Elbel Field.
'In the early season contest the
Wolverines could not match the
experience of the Spartans, and were
shut out, 39-0.
The team is open to all female stu-
dents, experienced or beginner.
"Any interested player is welcome
to come to practice," coach Rosie
Wywrot said.
The team practices from 6 to 8
p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at
Elbel Field. All home games are
played at 10 a.m. on Saturday, also at
Elbel Field.
Michigan plays two seasons dur-
ing the year. The fall season began in
September and concludes at the end
of October. Play resumes for the
spring season in January.
The Wolverines will practice
indoors during the winter months,
Dance club busts
a move at football
pregaerally
Before the Michigan football team
squared off against Purdue this
Saturday, the Michigan Dance Club
put on a performance of its own.
Twenty dancers performed a routine
to-the song "It's Raining Men" at the
Michigan Experience, a pep rally
held at the Track and Tennis building
three hours before each Michigan
football home game.
-The dance club is booked to per-
form before the Illinois,
Northwestern, and Ohio State home
games, and will also be featured at
Michigan men's home basketball
games. Club captain Amy Friedman
said the dancers will be courtside for
every game, and they will be fea-

then move outside when the weather
becomes acceptable in April.
The women will be celebrating the
20th anniversary of club rugby in the
spring of 2000.
Rugby pits two teams of 15 play-
ers to do battle on an 80-yard pitch,
or field. The offensive team's goal is
to score by carrying, passing, kick-
ing and finally grounding the ball in
the scoring area, while the opposing
team tries to tackle them - all with-
out the luxury of pads.
The Wolverines will take on
Central Michigan in Mt. Pleasant
this Saturday.
Wywrot said that all those interest-
ed in joining the team should come
to practice tomorrow or Thursday
evening, or call the rugby hotline at
332-9009.
More information on the Michigan
women's rugby club is available at
the team's Website, http:// www.

tured during two minute time-outs.
They will also perform occasionally
during halftime.
Over 100 students tried out for
only five available spots on the club
this fall. Out of the five new dancers
to make the team, four were fresh-
men.
The quartet of Leslie Frankel,
Brittany Johnson, Jenna Williams
and Kim Nemic dropped jaws with
their performances at tryouts to
assure themselves a spot on the
squad.
The club practices seven hours per
week, Tuesday from 8-10 p.m. at the
CCRB, Thursday from 6-8 p.m. in
the lobby of Yost Ice Arena, and
Sunday 7-10 p.m. at the CCRB.
The club holds spring tryouts, and
captain Amy Friedman encourages
anyone interested to email her at
amvlf@urnich.edu or to call her at
930-9775.

SPORTS IN BRIEF
Pastor: Underwood
incident, bod in
Wonders Half not
linked to church
LANSING (AP) - The pastor of a
church that gained attention after
NFL player Dimitrius Underwood
slashed his throat and another man
with ties to the church was found
dead said yesterday it was unfortunate
that both tragedies occurred, but his
church isn't responsible for them.
"I got people here that have car
accidents in the same week. I hate to
put it on that level, but ... we can't
control those types of things," the
Rev. Phillip Owens told reporters
shortly before leading the service
Sunday at Immanuel's Temple
Community Church.
Underwood, a 22-year-old rookie
for the Miami Dolphins who played
three years for Michigan State, used
two steak knives Sept. 26 to slash his
neck while visiting his children and
their mother in Lansing. He now is in
an inpatient mental health clinic.
Underwood's mother, ordained
minister Eileen Underwood, last week
referred to Owens' church as a "cult
that's posing as a church."
On Friday, her son's agent issued a
statement quoting her as saying that
since she and Owens are both born-
again Christians, they "should both
be on the same accord, rather than
creating conflict caused by misinter-
pretation."
Owens said it's clear that Mrs.
Underwood has changed her mind
about Immanuel's Temple being a
cult.
"Now that she's got her son in a
safe environment, she's now backing
off that," Owens told Lansing station
WILX. "We never have been a cult.
Our doctrine is sound."
Mrs. Underwood could not be
reached for comment.
Another young man who had
attended Immanuel's Temple, 23-
year-old Neftali Valdez Greene Jr.,
was found suffocated in a cramped,
unused cooler in a Michigan State
dorm basement on Sept. 22.
Police think the former Michigan
State student got into the cooler on
his own, then could not get out when
the door closed and locked behind
him. But they are continuing their
investigation and hope to know more
when toxicology reports are in. Police
said Greene had attended Immanuel's
Temple for about a year.
Owens said Sunday that Greene
had stopped attending the church a
month ago, when he left to start his
own ministry.
"The police have said it's an acci-
dental death," he said. "There is no
connection here" to Immanuel's
Temple.
Owens also dismissed comments
by two Battle Creek women who say
they are worried their two 20-year-old
children are being encouraged to give
to the church beyond their means.
"We went to the church records to
check out their giving,", he said. "I
can't give you a dollar figure, but the
giving is (in the) low hundreds" of
dollars. 4
Upon retirement, AL
umpire remembers
Tiger Stadium fondly
CHICAGO (AP) - Asked to name

one of the greatest events he had seen
in his 22 years as an American
League umpire, Durwood Merrill
only had to look back a week to the
closing of Tiger Stadium.
"You could not see that stadium
close without bringing a tear to your
eye," he said.
Tiger. Stadium closed Sept. 27, 88
years after it opened. A sellout crowd
of 43,356 and more than 60 past
Tigers helped to close it down.
Merrill, who is retiring, said the
highlight his career was being behind
the plate for the 1995 All-Star Game

in Texas.
The 61-year-old Merrill, who
joined the AL staff in 1977, wa
behind the plate Sunday at Comiske
Park. The Minnesota Twins and
Chicago White Sox wound up in a I-
I tie when Merrill called the game
after 6 1/2 innings because of rain.
Merrill will work the AL playoffs
and then retire to his home in Hooks,
Texas.
"If I tried to reflect on (my career),
I'd get kind of emotional," he said.
"I've had a good ride and it's been a.
good career and I've enjoyed it
"I'll miss the people I work with,
Rocky (Roe) and John (Hirschbeck)
and Jim (Reynolds). You miss your
compadres. I'll get over the game," he
said.
Merrill's crew gave him a pair of
dark denim overalls embroidered with
his lame in red and "Retired
American League Umpire 33."
Minnesota manager Tom Kelly sent
over a bottle of champagne - atetO
the crew took the field for yesterday s
game.
Former Wolverine
Harbaugh leaves
game with injury
SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego
Chargers quarterback Jim Harbaugh
left yesterday's game against thz
Kansas Chiefs with a bruised. right
elbow and wide receiver Jeff Graham
sustained a concussion on the next
play.
A third starter, cornerback Charlms'
Dimry, left with a sprained right knee
early in the second quarter and wasn't
expected to return.
Harbaugh landed on his right side
when he was hit by defensive end Eric'
Hicks after releasing a pass late in th*
first quarter. He was taken into the
locker room and the team said his
return was questionable. Harbaugh-
returned to the bench early in the sec-
ond quarter with his elbow wrapped
as Erik Kramer remained in the game.
On the first play after Harbaugh
was hurt, Kramer threw a long pass to
Graham. The pass was broken up by
Eric Warfield and Graham hit his
head on the turf. His return was ques
tionable.
Dominican president
throws first pitch at
Cubs-Cardinals game
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Sammy Sosa
may not have won the home run race
but he is number one in the hearts of
his countrymen, including the presi-
dent of the Dominican Republic. -°
Leonel Antonio Fernandez threw
out the first pitch at Busch Stadittm
yesterday and watched Sosa hit his
63rd homer for the Chicago Cubs
But Fernandez also had to watch
Mark McGwire hit his 65th home run
for the St. Louis Cardinals.
Fernandez said he wanted to tell
Sosa and the other players from the
Dominican Republic on both team.
how important they are in their hom
country. He met with Dominican
players from both teams before the
game.
"Considering that he and Mark
McGwire are the only two players in
baseball history to ever hit more than
60 home runs in two straight seasons,
we are very proud of him and what he
has done," Fernandez said.
"He is a national hero and a nation-
al source of pride, we love him ver
much."
Fernandez was accompanied by
another Dominican hero, former

pitcher Juan Marichal.
Out with a drip:
Tigers end dismal
season with rainout
KANSAS CITY (AP) --The reg
lar-season finale between the Detro
Tigers and Kansas City Royals wa
canceled Sunday because of rain.
The Tigers finished 69-92, third in
the AL Central. The Royals, who set a
team record with 856 runs, ended the
year 64-97.
