transition

ByNaweed Sikora (mbk, erd)
Baily Sports Writer
a.-For the Michigan men's soccer team,
the transition from the club tevel to the
varsity level has been pretty much on
schedule. The season was a valuable
learning experience that will htelp them
ithe future.
Michigan will wrap up its inaugural
ular season at home this Saturday
against Ohio State. Witht a win, the
Wolverines could finisht the regular sea-
son with a record of 2-4 in the Big Ten
and 7-8 overall, which would be good
ettough for fifth place in the conference.
Although the season wasn't a fairy
afe, the team did accomplish many of its
initial season goals.
'One of our major goals was learning
how to play at the varsity level," Bun
id. "Varsity games are very physical
and fast-paced. With our young team it
took some time, but we hase learned to
play at a higher level:'
The other najor goal for the
Wolverines was to get a solid victoty
against a toregh opponent. Burns feels
that Saturday's game against Ohio Stat

Chavez (five goals, six assists) have
to get untracked. Their speed causes
problems for slower defenders,
allowing midfielders like senior cap-
tain Kacv Beitel and freshman
Amber Wilson to find space in the
middle. Beitel and Wilson like to mix
it up in the box, giving Michigan a
physical element to go along with
Crumpton and Chavez's finesse.
Scoring goals "is a focus issue, and
a confidence issue," Crumpton said.
"We can't worry about the, goalie
catching the shot or about shooting it
over the post."
Although the Wolverines have
been inconsistent at finishing
chances, their goal-keeping has been
solid all year. Freshman Suzie Grech
has alternated in goal with

Mtchigan's career saves leader sentor
Catrissa Stewart.
Grech's outstanding play has
forced the platoon - she has posted
three shutouts along with a 1.4 goals-
against-average.
"We've had good performances in
goal this season," Rademacher said.
"It's nice to feel comfortable about
that position."
Michigan's skill level has never
been questioned this season. But, the
Wolverines' youth has led to lapses in
concentration during the long season.
With the intense, single-elimina-
tion nature of the Big Ten tourna-
ment, the young Wolverines appear
ready to take advantage of their final
opportunity to earn an NCAA tour-
nament bid.
"We're a lot more focused,"
Crumpton said. "This is our last shot
to get into NCAAs."

Komisarek said. "It's like when ihe
Winnipeg Jets had the 'white-out.' It's
pretty amazing:'
No word as to whether or not the
Wolverines will don their famous tuize
jerseys for the game.
"That's a game-tine decision by the
coach," Cammalleri said. "But f iknow
last year we were maize also" for Maize
Out.
BLACKBURN UPDATE: Goalteader
Josh Blackburn practiced for the Tirst
time this week and reported no lin-
gering effects after injuring his shoul-
der in Saturday night's game.
"It feels pretty good - like'brand
new," Blackburn said. "We stretched
it a lot. I think it was just a little
thing, but we're just being cautious, I
think."

Michigan senior defenseman Steve Huber is a throwback from the club soccer days.
So far, the transition to varsity has worked well, despite the less-than-stellar record.

will be the perfect opportunity for his
team to get that win.
The 20th-ranked Buckeyes are cur-
rently tied for fourth in the Big Ten with
a record of 1-2-2 (8-4-4). Ohio State
goalie Kerry Thompson leads the con-
ference with seven shutouts and a 0.82
goals-against average.
"They are another one of our big
rivals," Michigan freshman Pat Tuohey
said. "I believe it is going to be a tough,
physical game."
Although it has been a difficult sea-
son, Burns and the players are very
pleased with how well the team came
together this year.
"We developed a lot of team chem-
istry this year," Burns said. "The mem-
bers of the team, both young and old, all

had a great deal of respect for each
other."
Tuohey saw improvement on the field
as well.
"For a first-year program, I think fin-
ishing around .500 is pretty decent,"
Tuohey said. "I think we all came togeth-
er really well this season. Because of
that, our scoring has really improved"
Looking ahead to next year, Burns has
several ideas in mind to improve the
team. He plans to use the upcoming
recruiting class to strengthen his team's
midfield.
"Last year, we focused on improving
the defense and the counter-attack," Burns
said. "With this year's recruiting class,
we're looking to put a midfield together
with powerful players who can attack."
