, ,u-Jitsu club performs well at U.S. Nationals

AMERICAN CONFERENCE

y Brad Hoffman
or the Daly
Entering U.S. Nationals last week-
nd in Columbus, things were looking
leak for the Michigan's Brazilian Jiu-
itsu club. With five members of the
ompetitive team unable to perform
ue to injury, it were reduced to send-
ig its three youngest fighters to com-
etc in one of the most prestigious Jiu-
tsu tournaments.
With this in mind, the team had to be
itisfied with the outcome of its
atches. All three fighters received
ledals in their respective divisions,
cite an accomplishment, since there
ere competitors representing places
I across America, Brazil and Japan.
"The United States does not have the
-digree in Jiu-Jitsu that other coun-
ies do," club president Francis Garcia
id. "They bring a big contingent of
ghters, all of whom are very skilled."
A match may end in numerous ways.
fighter can submit, win on points or
ic six-minute time limit can expire.
I. Michigan's victories came on sub-
issions or by the mercy rule, which
:curs when a fighter has a 12-point
ad.
Sophomore Cooper Holoweski, who
)mpeted in the lightweight division,
wised through his matches, only to
se in the finals to a fighter from
awaii by a submission armbar tech-
que (hyperextending an opponent's
mn).

"It was his hard work, dedication,
and intense summer training that
allowed him to better himself as a
fighter," Garcia said. "This has really
become evident throughout the sea-
son.
Freshman Matt Jubera also compet-
ed in the lightweight division, receiv-
ing the bronze medal. Coincidentally,
Jubera was also defeated by the same
Hawaiian fighter, losing on points.
In the light-heavyweight division,
sophomore Rob Linn, who earned a
spot on the competitive team by win-
ning the first annual Michigan In-
House Tournament, also received a sil-
ver medal.
"This was definitely a step up for us.
We can use nationals as a gauge for our
next tournament," Garcia said.
Their progress will be determined
quickly, as the club's next tournament
is the U.S. Open this weekend in Santa
Cruz, Calif
Coach Marcio Corleta, Garcia, ses-
sion leader Rodrigo Nunes, along with
competitors David O'Hara and Evan
Locev were all unable to compete in
nationals. Their return to action will be
pivotal for the team.
Corleta, who does not attend
Michigan but still coaches and com-
petes with the team, is the reigning
Pan-American and World champion.
He severely sprained his ankle while
fighting in Brazil a week prior to
nationals and his return is question-
able.

The Family, Inc. got battered around
by Michigan yesterday.
The women's basketball team used
its first exhibition as a chance to exper-
iment with its players as the Wolverines
routed a group of former Division I ath-
letes, 98-76.
"I was glad I was able to get every-
body playing time, especially the fresh-
men," Michigan coach Sue Guevara
said.
Five Wolverines scored in double
digits, including three starters.
Shooting guard Alayne Ingram's game
high of 17 was helped by her two-of-
three shooting from beyond the arc.
Tying Ingram in points was freshman
Jennifer Smith who also added seven
rebounds.
Freshman Michaela Leary spelled
Anne Thorius. Leary got her points via
the freethrow, hitting six-of-seven from
the line. She also added five assists.
Guevara made Leary Thorius' back-
up. Though Thorius rarely misses a
start, Leary will see plenty of playing
time as Guevara said she did not want
to burden her starter with 40 minutes a
game.
Michaela "gets to watch and see the
decisions that Anne makes and Alayne
makes," Guevara said. "She's a student
of the game too. She's a pretty quick
learner."
No matter who was running the
point, the Wolverines were quick to try

Woods stumbles, Mickelson wins Tour Championship

ATLANTA (AP) - Phil Mickelson
found the perfect end to his season -
winning the Tour Championship with a
record score and stopping another
amazing streak by Tiger Woods.
With no chance to win any PGA Tour
awards, Mickelson gave himself quite a
consolation prize yesterday. 1-e closed
with a 4-under 66 and took advantage
of sloppy play by Woods for a two-
stroke victory at East Lake Golf Club.

It was the first time in 20 tourna-
ments, dating to his third tournament as
a pro in 1996, that Woods had at least a
share of the 54-hole lead and failed to
win. And it was the second time this
year Mickelson weas the man responsi-
ble for stopping the streak.
In February, he came on strong down
the stretch to win the Buick Invitational
in San Diego arid stop Woods' tour win-
ning streak at six.
"It's a wonderful way to end the
year," said Mickelson, who finished at
13-under 267 to break by one stroke the
Tour Championship record set by Tom
Watson in 1987.

All day at the Eastern Michigan Open,
Michigan wrestling coaches could be
seen pacing up and down the sidelines,
scouring at their troops. Verbal coaching
was not allowed because it was an open
rmeet, but any spectator could tell that a
glare from one of the coaches contained
all the information the team needed.
Get aggressive.
The Wolverines were intense enough
to win eight-of-10 weight classes at the
meet, which hosted many of the smaller
state schools as well as Big Ten rivals
Michigan State and Purdue.
While the meet was non-scoring for
the team, the high intensity level
preached by coach Joe McFarland was
apparent for the Wolverines, who are
hoping a dominating style will help them
improve on their fifth-place finish in the
Big Ten Championships. McFarland has
been teaching his style of aggressive
wrestling thus far this season, and was
pleased with the results.
"We're wrestling a hard, in-your-face,
tough style of wrestling, and I like that,"
McFarland said. "I wanted to see how
aggressive we are, and it's encouraging."

"That's been an emphasis for us to

Ingram said. "We always try to move (

Ohio State in season finale

WHY HAS THE
UNIVERSI'TY
OF MICHIGAN
FAILED ITS
STUDENTS?
For some answers see:
www.universityseCretS.COm

By Nick Kacher
Dil' sports Vnter
It is hard enough to get a win in Big
Ten soccer while playing with a full
team, but when a team has to play a man
short for the majority of the game --
winning becomes almost. impossible.
This is exactly what the Michigan men's
soccer team (1-5 Big Ten, 6-9 overall)
faced Saturday afternoon when it
squared off with No. 20 Ohio State. In
their last regular season game of the inau-
gural season, the Wolverines fell 3-0.
Just 12 minutes into the game,
Michigan's Steve Walton received a
questionable red card. This forced him to

sit out the rest of'the game and forced the
Wolverines to play a man short for the
remainin 77 minutes.
Ohio State was quick to capitalize on
the advantage and found the back of the
net twice in a three minute span.
"We feel we got an unfortunate cl
and its tough to play a man short for
almost 80 minutes," senior co-captain
Jack Stead said.
Michigan usually plays with more of
a defensive, counter-attacking strategy.
But the team decided to show Ohio State
a more high-pressure, pressing style to
begin the game.
After the early red card, the
Wolverines had to throw that idea out t
door. Michigan held tough after the tw
quick goals, and went into halftime trail-
ing 2-0.
"I told the guys at halftime we had a
huge challenge in front of us, trailing 2-
0" coach Steve Burns said. "To get back
into we had to play a very physical game.
