Women's soccer seeking national title

Finishing last year ranked second
in the nation and off to a perfect 5-0
start this year, the Michigan women's
soccer club has obvious goals in
mind. To no one's surprise, the team's
objective for this year is to get back to
nationals, held in Austin, Texas.
But this time the team is deter-
mined to do the one thing that avoid-
ed it last year - take the final step
and win the championship.
"We can definitely make it back to
nationals, but we have a lot of work to
do," club president Shelly Noland
That work includes tough games
against Michigan State and Miami as
well as end-of-the-year tournaments
at Penn State, Indiana and Ohio State.
Without the funding received by
varsity teams, the commitment that
each player gives to the club goes
beyond play on the field. In order to
play, each girl must pay $400. This
money goes to hotels, tournament
fees, vans, uniforms, etc. On top of
that is the price of plane tickets to fly
to nationals, an estimated $250 more.
Practice is also four days a week for
two hours a day and a great deal of
Sailing club cruises
to regatta win
While many students spent their
Saturday morning and afternoon
watching the football game, the
Michigan sailing club had an inter-
section regatta to host.
The Cary Price Regatta is the only
regatta the club will host this semes-
ter and draws some of the best colle-
giate sailors in the midwest and has
teams coming from as far as Boston
The Wolverines won the two day
regatta which ran from Saturday to
Sunday. Wisconsin came in second,
14 points behind Michigan.
The point system in sailing awards
points according to the finish in the
race and the club with the least points
after all the races wins the regatta.
Michigan finished with 45 points for
the weekend.
"Many students don't think of
Michigan as being a power house in
sailing," club member Maggie Peters
But they are one of the best clubs
in the nation. The Wolverines are
consistently in the top 25 nationally

extra time is spent traveling and
preparing for games.
"Everyone wants to be here, every-
one wants to play. No one is on a
scholarship, so it's not like anyone is
forced to be here," Noland said.
Second year head coaches Chris
Coleman and Michael Newman have
drastically changed this program and
have taken it to the next level. While
instilling in the players a strong work
ethic and concentrating on physical
fitness and constant conditioning, the
team has been able to outwork its
Playing a 4-3-3 formation, the team
strategy is to play defense everywhere
on the field, which will eventually
lead to offense. The attitude and dis-
cipline taught and expected by the
coaches is an integral part of the
team's success.
In their most recent outing,
Michigan handled Kent State, 10-1 on

Phillies fire Francona
after finishing last
MIAMI (AP) - Philadelphia
Phillies manager Terry Francona was
fired yesterday after a season in
which his team finished last in its
division and with the second-worst
record in the National League.
The team scheduled a news con-
ference before its season finale
against the Florida Marlins.
General manager Ed Wade
informed Francona of the decision
yesterday. Francona was to manage
the closing game.
"This has been a tremendously dif-
ficult tine for all of us," Wade said.
"Those difficulties are compounded
when you have to let good baseball
people and good friends go.'
Francona managed the team to a
losing record in each of his four sea-
sons in Philadelphia. He had a 285-
362 record enterg vesterday ;s
Also dismissed were four coaches:
hitting coach Hal McRae, first base
coach Frad Mills, pitching coach
Galen Cisco and bench coach Chuck
Franeona improved the club from
68 to 75 to 77 victories in his first
three seasons, but will finish with his
worst record this year.
The Phillies entered yesterday's
game at 65-96. -

Mills was declared ineligible fo
