Tihis includes a talented sophomore

and Mark Mink, have emereed on the

in Friday's victory over Bowling Green.
"They've had a good stag;" Berenson
said. "I really like the way they play. They
complement each other well and have
been scoring some big goals for us."
A major reason for their chemistry is
that they've been on the same line togeth-
er for the past nine years, dating back
through their days in juniors when they
won a national championship together-
forming a close kinship along the way.
"Our families are close and we've
known each other for about 10 years,"
Shounevia said. "We're like brothers,
knowing everything about each other:'
This deep knowledge of each other
helps them on the ice, as the playmaking

Shounevia says has "one of the most
accurate shots in the league."
"I try to find himnShounevia said.
"I ie shoots the puck real well, so Ijust try
to find him and he buries it for me."
Shounevia found him twice on Friday
night, assisting on both of Mink's goals.
"It's like he's got eyes in the back of his
head;' Mink said about Shouneyia. "We
can really read off each other and antici-
pate each other's moves."
This start - each has six points in six
games ---- pleases Berenson since he was
worried about the two before the season.
"They just didn't look good in prac-
tice," Berenson said. "They looked too
comfortable and too lackadaisical. We
were concerned they would go through a
Berenson talked to the two early on and
the duo responded with scoring touch on
the third line and second power-play unit.
There was never any question that
sophomore forward Mike Cammalleri
would repeat his impressive freshman
peiformance when he scored 26 points.
This season, Cammalleri is quarter-
backing the power play and blocking
shuts on the penalty kill unit - tallying
10 points already in this young season.
Cammalleri is tied for second on the
team in points with fellow sophomore

and Scott Matzka's line. This line not

the four game winning goals includ-
ing a tally by Matzka with 1:18 to go
against Bowling Green on Sunday night.
"We're going to be a tough team to
stop cause you can't focus on one line."
Matzka said. "I see quite a few guys who
can have 20 goals this year."
Even with a balanced oftensive attack,
Matzka's game winner only helped escape
Sundav from a Bowling Green comeback
in xwhich the Wolverines got complacent
and sloppy after taking a 3-1 lead.
The Wolverines didn't practice vester-
dav, but went over the tape. Berenson said
it "was definitely not a happy meeting.''
"I think our players were amazed at
how poorly we played when they looked
at the highlights' Berenson said. "They
had to be a little embarrassed - we were
lucky to survive that game"

rowing down the Charles is the quintes-
sential locale for a crew race. Michigan
headed to Boston for the annual Head of
the Charles Regatta this past Saturday.
The annual bonanza draws in excess of
5,500 competitors and more than
300,000 fanatic spectators. Needless to
say just rowing in this competition is a
great honor. Michigan scored more than
just participation points as the Wolverines
finished sixth in the championship fours
and fourth in the championship eights
race. Michigan's times were 18:22:80 in
the fours and 16:59.21 in the eights.
"This weekend was amazing' said
sophomore Helen Dalis, the coxswain in
the championship eights. "It's was my
sixth trip, but it is still amazing.
But unlike when she rowed for her
high school in Augusta, Ga., fans were
making noise for her team.
"Everybody recognized the big block

Dalis said. "They all scream real loud
when we row by."
While most college-age students
attend the Head of the Charles for the
opportunity to sightsee the local Irish
pubs, the rowers all were highly concen-
trated on the five-kilometer -race.
Although they only rowed in two events,
the team finished 40th out of 458 schools
and rowing clubs that competed for the
overall team trophy.
The Wolverines, who finished fifth at
the nationals meet last year, appeared to
be among the top teams in the nation
once again this season. Princeton, who
won the eights and finished fifth in the
fours, was the only college team to beat
Michigan. The Wolverines were 18 sec-
onds behind Princeton in the eights and
only three seconds back in the fours.
"We didn't know how we compared in
the college rankings going into this week-
end," Dalis said. "We just wanted to do
our best, and our best happened to be
The second-place finish does not
mean that the Wolverines are ranked sec-
ond in the nation or they will be second at
nationals which aren't until next May.

will be closer to a sprint than the Head.
which requires a great deal of endurance.
"The fall season only helps determine
where you will be ranked in the presea-
son polls come spnng," Dalis said. "Right
now we are just training for endurance,
we are not getting used to sprints yet."
Also determined by the meet is which
teams improved. This year, those teams
were Harvard, Iowa and Princeton.
"Princeton got a lot stronger from last
year," Dalis said. "I was surprised that'
thev won by so much."
