Water skiing club unphased by alligators

Yankees win 6-5, take
commanding 2-0 lead

Warnings of alligators outlining
the shores of the lake could not falter
the Michigan water skiing club at the
national tournament last weekend.
Their performance ir Lafayette, La.,
proved Michigan to be a major pres-
ence in the collegiate world of water
skiin, when the Wolverines placed
seventh, the best finish by a
Midwestern team since Purdue in
1994.
Michigan went confidently into
nationals, still on a rush from its
first-place regional finish at the
Midwest Regional Water-ski
Tournament, despite the unpleasant
conditions the team had to practice
in before nationals.
"Practicing for nationals was real-
ty difficult, because the weather was
cold and wet for almost every prac-
tice we had, so we didn't really et a
lot of practice in before last week-
end," club president Ryan Majkrzak
said. "Fortunately, the high we were
on from winning regionals gave us
that extra push we needed to just go
out there and get it done."

The women's team finished sev-
enth overall, placing seventh in
slalom, seventh in tricks and seventh
in jumping.
The men took 10th overall, finish-
ing I Ith in slalom, sixth in tricks and
10th in jumping.
The highest Michigan individual
skiers were senior Dan Smallidge
and freshman Carly Edwards.
Smallidge, a four-year veteran,
placed 10th overall, finishing sixth
in slalom, 10th in tricks and 23rd in
jumping. Edwards took 21 st overall,
placing 38th in slalom, 23rd in tricks
and 25th in jumping.
"Dan and Carly's performances
proed that a small club team has the
talent and determination to compete
with lar-e, well-known teams like,
the national champion, the
University of L.ouisiana-Lafayette,"
Majkrzak said.
"Finishing seventh, ahead of many
varsity teams, was incredible for a
Midwest club team. This shows that
we are a force to be reckoned with."

NEW YORK (AP) - Roger Clemens
didn't throw a ball at Mike Piazza this
time. Just a bat.
And when the benches emptied in the
very first inning, it was clear this
Subway Series had a definite mean
streak, fueled by a beaning that was far
from forgotten.
Clemens set the tone right away and
pitched eight shutout innings, and the
New York Yankees held off the Mets'
five-run ninth for a 6-5 victory Sunday
night and a 2-0 lead in the World Series.
Piazza seemed to unleash all his fury
in the ninth, hitting a two-run homer off
reliever Jeff Nelson. Jay Payton hit a
three-run homer off Mariano Rivera, but
it could not stop the Yankees from post-
ing their record 14th straight World
Series victory.
Scott Brosius homered off loser Mike
Hampton and hit a sacrifice fly, and Paul
O'Neill, Derek Jeter and Tino Martinez
each had three hits for the Yankees.
For the second straight night, the Mets
looked lost at Yankee Stadium, this time
making three early errors as a sellout
crowd of 56,059 hooted.
Now, when the Series shifts to Shea
Stadium for Game 3 Tuesday night, the
Mets must hope Rick Reed can some-
how beat Orlando Hernandez, the only
pitcher ever to win his first eight post-
season decisions.
His cap pulled down low and his glove
held high to shield all but his eyes,
Clemens held the Mets to two singles.
The Rocket was clearly revved up
from the start, bouncing all around the
diamond to congratulate his fielders. He
hardly needed a lot of help as he struck
out nine and walked none.

Ultimate lFrisbee is a sport unfa-
miliar to a lot of people and for a
stretch of time, it was even unfamil-
iar to Michigan.
The women's ultimate team, is in
only its third year cf existence. In its
inaugural season, the team went win-
less.
But last year they finished third
in the GreatlLakes Region, narrow-
Iv missine a chance to go to nation-
als.
Ultimate puts a lot of emphasis on
good sportsmanship. There are no
officials so the players call the
games themselves.
"Spirit of the game is about good
calls and respect for the other play-
ers," Captain Jess Hoff said. "It is
about playing hard and playing to
win, but also about playing fair and
honest."
Many of last year's players have
returned this year. Coupled with a
great recruiting class, there are high
In-stater Mason commits
to women's basketball
Senior Katrina Mason of Murray
Wright High School in Detroit verbally
committed yesterday to Michigan for the
2001-'02 season of women's basketball.
Mason made the decision after her
recruiting visit last weekend to campus.
"I felt comfortable," Mason said. The
way Michigan coach Sue Guevara
"coaches made my decision go toward
Michigan."
The 6-3 Mason plays both center and
power forward. According to her high
school coach Virginia Lawrence, she has
improved a lot from her freshman vear.
"She's developed an outside shot."
Lawrence said. "She has a great hook
:shot and her defense has grown."
Lawrence said she has averaged better
than a double-double per game over the
past two seasons.

hopes and expectations for the team.
Flywheel has been practicing since
September even though the actual
college ultimate season does not
start until late February. The team's
first preseason tournament was
played on Saturday.
"While we play now to win, these
games are not recorded in the stand-

fall more towards teaching the game
and buildinu the team I loff' said.
The Michigan team was split in
two and was joined by teams from
Indiana, Ohio and Hope College for

Golota quits after second
round; Tyson gets TKO
Mike Tyson is back near the top of the
heavyweight division after scoring a sec-
ond-round technical knockout of Andrew
Golota at the Palaca of Aubum Hills on
Friday. After taking two rounds of punish-
ment from Tyson, Golota handed the victo-
ry to Tyson by refusing to come out for the
third.
Golota ignored the pleas of his trainer Al
Certo and simply walked away when Certo
tried to put the mouthpiece in Golota's
mouth. Golota was knocked down in the
first round and suffered a concussion and
neck injury.
Although Tyson indicated earlier in the
week that this would be the last fight of his
career, it his hard to imagine him walking,
away from potential eight-figure pay days

could not muster a shot on goal in the first
half and only had four for the game.
"I think it's more exciting," Gannon
said. "It's what we're used to."
While Michigan dominated the game,
it still struggled to finish on its chances.
Finally, the Wolveines had another cor-
ner shot where the ball bounced around
inside the circle a while.
Gannon hit the ball to the right side of
the post where Fronzoni was waiting to

champion Lennox Lewis.
By all rights, Golota's career as a con-
tender should be considered over now.

Gaines apologizes for
mistakes, will transfer4

By Dan Williams
Dily nxSpotls Wnrte
In September, former Michigan point
guard Kevin Gaines joined a long list of
current and former NCAA athletes who
let off-the-field problems mar a budding
collegiate career.
But following his highly publicized
arrest for driving under the influence on
Telegraph Road and subsequent dis-
missal from the team, Gaines made a
fairly unique decision to stay at Michigan
as a student for the fall and "get his head
back on straight."
Gaines said he will continue to attend
classes this semester and concentrate on
grades, and then he will transfer and
attempt to resume his basketball career at
another institution.
"As far as deciding when to leave, I
stayed just get my school work done -
to get my grades back up." Gaines said.
Gaines said lie is considering a num-
ber of schools to transfer to, but no
school is yet favored for his services.
The reason Gaines' decision to contin-
ue at Michigan this semester seems
unusual is because NCAA rules will
force him to sit out a full year before he
will be eligible to participate in basket-
ball games. Therefore, Gaines will not be
allowed to play in games again until next
.lanuar. lad he transferred immediately
after his dismissal, he could have
retumed to the court in the fall for the
beginning of the 2001-2002 season.
While he's concentrating on acade-
mics. Gaines continues to work out and

tained contact with Michigan Coach
Brian Ellerbe.
"Coach Ellerbe and I are still real cool,
and it's the same with all the coaching
staff," Gaines said.
Gaines said he will maintain close ti*
with the team even after his departure.
He was courtside for Saturday's Maize
and Blue scrimmage.
"I'm sorry for what happened,"Gaines
said. "I didn't mean for it to happen like
this. I hope they still do good this year
even though I'm not going to be here."
