Men's Ultimate hosts 15 in tournament

ftgkd#gml)Wu

Yesterday the Michigan men's
Ultimate Frisbee club hosted a pre-
season tournament with 15 teams
from around the Great Lakes.
Players put on some grubs, ran,
threw, caught and battled for boast-
ing rights.
"Our actual season is in the spring,
so this was kind of a warmup tourna-
ment," Mike Haley, Michigan's club
captain, said.
The Wolverines divided into three
teams varying in skill levels and then
challenged teams from Dayton, Ohio
and Ohio State.
"One of our teams made it to the
semifinals against Ohio State, one
lost in the quarterfinals and the other
just didn't make it," Haley said.
Magnum, the Michigan club team,

always welcomes intrested players.
Ultimate Frisbee is more than just
tossing around a plastic disk -
playres run hard, dive for passes' and
enjoy team unity.
"We have three different teams for
all the different skill levels to travel
around the country and compete
nationally," Haley said. "Last year,
we were able to compete in Boise,
Idaho for the national tournament."
In Boise, Michigan defeated Rice,
Cornell, Oberlin and Iowa, but fell to
Brown and North Carolina.
Interested players should contact
the club by e-mail -
haleymn(aumich.edu - or stop by
winter practices held in Oosterbaan
Fieldhouse.

AMERICAN CONFERENCE

En garde! Fencing team holds tryouts

The Michigan club fencing team is
not an elitist organization - they are
fully willing to take stray students in dire
need of an activity. There are not many
groups on campus that are willing to
take the seemingly untrainable, give
them equipment, and attempt to train
them in their respective activities. This is
one of the things that makes the
Michigan club fencing team so unique.
Last year the club was faced with
what seemed like an impossible chal-
lenge. At the beginning of its season it
lacked one person with fencing experi-
ence. One would conclude that given
this setback, the club was doomed to a
season of failure. However, the club
stepped up to the challenge and exceed-
ed even their own expectations.
The Michigan fencers came home
with a total of 70 medals last year, a
team record. At the Midwest Collegiate
Fencing Championship tournament,
first-year fencers brought home both
third and fourth place finishes. As a
whole, the club came in fourth out of
approximately 40 contending teams.
They are confident again this year.

"We are looking really strong this
year, and have a lot of returning experi-
ence that last year we were without," said
Tiffany Tong, a second year fencer. "We
should finish in the top five again this
season"
There are three types of swords used
in fencing matches, the epee, the sabre,
and the foil. Players can receive a letter
ranking, A-E with A being the highest,
by The United States Fencing
Association for each of these weapons.
Thirteen of the Michigan fencers have
already received rankings in at least one
area, which is impressive considering
that one must work to achieve even the
lowest of the five possible rankings.
If the fencing team appeals to you, do
not fear for lack of experience. Coach
Jim Vesper is willing to train interested
fencers with each of the three weapons.
The team has already begun practicing
for this season and can be found at the
Sports Colliseum from 7-9 p.m.,
Monday through Thursday. Tong says,
"Anyone interested can come at any-
time"

Cagers receive
two more verbals
The Michigan basketball program
received a verbal commitment from
Kelly Whitney this weekend, the third
verbal commitment of this year's
recruiting class. Whitney is a 6-foot-8
power forward from Chicago.
Whitney's commitment came less
than one day after Michigan got a ver-
bal commitment from Chuck Bailey, a
6-foot-7 small forward from Detroit
who has been labeled as a slasher.
Whitney told Midwest Hoops that
he chose Michigan because of his
comfort level with new assistant coach
Terence Greene, who played at
DePaul.
Michigan still has two scholarships
available for next year. A verbal com-
mitment is not binding; coaches are
not allowed to comment about verbal
commitments.

Heat's Mourning out
with kidney disorder
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Miami
Heat center Alonzo Mourning will be
sidelined indefinitely by an apparent
kidney disorder, discovered during a
routine preseason physical examination.
Further tests are planned for
Mourning, 30, who missed the first four
days of training camp.
"Preliminary tests seem to have indi-
cated a kidney disorder," the Heat said in
a brief statement Saturday. "At the
request of Alonzo, there will be no fur-
ther comment until more information is
available:
Georg'a student injured
in celebration melee
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia
student was in serious condition yes-
terday after being trampled during
on-field celebrations following the
Bulldogs' victory over Tennessee.
Kristine Yu, 18, was in the inten-
sive care unit at St. Mary's Hospital,
supervising nurse Jan Green said.
Witnesses said the freshman was
trampled by other fans on the field
Saturday night when one of the goal
posts began to fall during the celebra-
tion after No. 14 Georgia beat
Tennessee.
"The goal post just started coming
down and people were just pushing,
pushing, pushing," Mack Brice said.
"It was a nightmare. It was a heck of
a price to pay for a goal post."

Homeward-bound
Bowers leads M' golf

By Chris Burke
For the Daily

:;k

Junior women's golfer Bess Bowers
will be returning home this weekend
and she'll be bringing her teammates
with her. The Wolverines hope to return
as champions of the Women's
Collegiate Shootout to be held today
and tomorrow in Franklin, Ind.
Bowers grew up playing on the
Legends of Indiana course where the-
tournament will be held, as she lived
only 45 minutes from the location, and
the team will be trying to bank on her
experience.
"It helps that Bess knows the
course," coach Kathy Teichert said.
"She pretty much knows it inside out.
For her, that can either add pressure or
she can go in with confidence. Right
now, she's very confident, and when
she's confident she's capable of scoring
very well."

Bowers is coming off a very succes@
ful weekend at the Lady Northern tour-
nament at Minnesota last weekend.
Bowers fired a three-day score of 228
to place her tied for tenth overall.
Michigan placed eighth as a team at
the Lady Northern, and the same six
players that played in that tournament
will be the six that travel to Indiana
today.
"Golf's a funny game' Teichert said
"One day you're great and the ne*
you're not so hot. Last year Kim played
extremely well (at the Shootout). If we
can get production from her, get Misia
to step up, and have the others continue
to play consistently, then we can play
pretty good golf."
The two-day, 54-hole tournament
will consist of 15 teams, five of which
are nationally ranked. Of those five
nationally ranked schools, four are Big
Ten schools.
"The field is extremely challenging
Teichert said. "Every team is a great
team. We have to be ready, stay focused
and play smart golf. If we can manage
the game a little better, we can be much
improved."
Michigan turned in its best team
round of the year last weekend when
they put together a score of 300 in the
tournament's final round.
"I'm very happy with the progres
we've been making," Teichert said.
"There's no question that this team is
