Men's lacrosse coach John Paul
described the goal for his team as con-
tinuing to improve throughout the sea-
son. And with a record of 5-0 and a
victory over No. 1 Sonoma State 17-8
last Friday, the team proved it had done
just that.
The win left little room for the team
to improve on Saturday, when it finally
took a step back by losing to No. 5 Col-
orado State 11-8.
After the disappointing loss, the
Wolverines returned to their old trend by
beating Texas 19-10 last night.
During Friday's victory, the team was
led by attackman Jeff Hadwin, who
scored eight goals during the game. But
Hadwin is not the only scoring option
for Michigan.
"Jeff, Kevin (Chan) and Tom (Burns)
are probably the best attack in the entire
USLAA," defenseman Greg Deutch
said. "If you're going to leave Jeff open,
we are going to give it to him and he is
going to score. And if you shut him off,
then Kevin and Tom are going to take
the defensive guys and they're going to
score."
"We just matched up really well with
Sonoma. All of our strengths matched
up really well with their weaknesses,"
Paul said.
Unlike Michigan's blowout win on
Friday, the Wolverines fell behind in the
first half to Colorado State. But they
climbed to within a goal at 5-4 in the
second quarter.
With only a few minutes left in the

half, Colorado State scored three quick
goals to give it an 8-4 advantage at the
break. This four-goal cushion ended up
being the difference in the game. It also
gave the Rams momentum going into
the second half.
After the break, Colorado State
stretched its lead to l1-5 with 6:60 in
the 4th quarter.
The Wolverines finally got things
going at the end of the game, scoring the
final three goals to pull within three.
But, the lead was too much to for them
to overcome.
"Once they got that three, four goal
lead, it's just real tough - that's a big
hump to come back over," Deutch said.
The Wolverines found themselves in
the unfamiliar position of being the
overmatched team. Deutch noted some
physical differences between the two
teams.
"They're just as fast as us, (and)
they're bigger than us," Deutch said.
"We have trouble against the bigger,
physical teams rather than teams like us
that are quicker and better skilled. We
just need to find a way to come out and
beat guys like this"
Although the team suffered its first
defeat, it is more concerned about get-
ting ready for the national tournament.
"We always try and schedule top
competition to get ready for the tourna-
ment' Hadwin said.
Both Deutch and Hadwin wanted to
take the loss as a learning experience.
"I think it was more of a wake up call
than anything else," Hadwin said.
"They showed us tonight that we're not
where we think we were."

Buckeye cornerback
locke up for 30 days
NEWARK, Ohio (AP) - Ohio
State defensive back Derek Ross was
sentenced to 30 days in jail for giving a
false name to a trooper who stopped
him for speeding.
If he serves the full sentence that
began Thursday, Ross will miss most
of spring football, which runs March
31 to April 28. Ross was expected to
start at cornerback.
The 21-year-old sophomore was
stopped Wednesday evening for dri-
ving 85 mph in a 65 mph zone on an
interstate, State Highway Patrol Sgt. Ty
Walker said.
The trooper could not find informa-
tion under the name Ross provided, so
he took him to the Heath Police
Department.
Ross admitted who he was after the
trooper followed leads through the
Bureau of Motor Vehicles, Walker said.
He was charged with speeding, fur-
nishing false information and driving
under a suspended license.
Ross was ordered to pay $703 in
fines and court costs. His driver's
license had been suspended in 1997,
Walker said. He was on probation for
driving under a suspended license in
1998.
Shoulder continues
to bother Palmer
LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -
Detroit Tigers third baseman Dean
Palmer could miss the start of the
season because
of soreness in
his right shoul-
der.
Palmer had

day of camp and will have it re-
examined next week by Dr. James
Andrews.
Palmer has seen action as a desig-
nated hitter this spring but has no*
played third base.
He was scratched from the lineup
Friday for the Tigers' spring training
game against the Florida Marlins,
and he will not play through the
weekend.
General manager Randy Smith
and manager Phil Garner both
remained hopeful that the pain in
Palmer's shoulder is nothing mor*
than part of his recovery.
But both said there's a possibility
of opening the season without him
in the lineup.
When doves die -
'Big Unit' kills bird
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A pitch
by Randy Johnson hit and killed a
dove flying in front of home plate.
The lethal pitch came during the@
seventh inning of the Arizona Dia-
mondbacks' 10-5 victory against
the San Francisco Giants on Satur-
day.
The bird flew over the catcher
Rod Barajas's head and landed a
few feet from the plate amid a sea
of feathers.
"I'm sitting there waiting for nit,
and I'm expecting to catch the
thing, and all you see is an expIo-
sion," Barajas said. "It's crazy.
There's still feathers down there." :
Johnson, the NL Cy Young win-
ner and perhaps the game's hardest
thrower, was not amused.
"I didn't think it was all that
funny," he said.
In 1983, Yankees outfielder Dave
Winfield killed a seagull in Toronto
with a warmup throw.
Police charged him with anima
cruelty, although the charge was
later dropped.
"This was a little more dramatic,"
Arizona manager Bob Brenly said.
"I can honestly say I have never
seen that before."

The Michigan women's figure skat-
ing club might be traveling for free
soon considering how many frequent
flyer miles it is accumulating.
Last weekend, the Wolverines com-
peted in the National Collegiate Con-
ference Championships in Boston,
where they placed third. The week
before, the team was in Colorado
Springs, Co. for the Synchronized
National Championships where it fin-
ished ninth.
In Boston, an individual competition
was held in which skaters earned points
for their respective teams.
Several Michigan skaters, Sarah
Pekarek, Gregory Goddard, Keri-Lee
Schwiderson and Kate Shaw, finished
first in their competitions. In the
"Senior" division, Amy Miyoshi fin-
ished second while Tami Tarnow took
sixth place in the Individual compul-
sories. In the Individual Free Skating,
Tarnow took third place while Lisa
Znoy placed sixth in the division.
While earning individual accom-
plishments, the top five skaters also
helped by earning points for their team
total. Michigan ended up tallying 59
points and placed third behind Miami
of Ohio and the University of Delaware.
With their ninth place finish at the
Synchronized National Championships,
the Wolverines were unable to meet
their biggest goal of the trip - obtain-
ing the status of an International team
and play teams from other nations.'

Amy Miyoshi claimed that their dis-
appointing short program had a lot to
do with their finish.
"We had a couple bobbles there,"
Miyoshi said.
The short program was not the end of
the championships, but it might as well
have been.
Miyoshi said she thought it would be
difficult for the team to move up the
leaderboard after placing ninth in the
short program. Her fears became a real-
ity after the team finished in the same
spot despite a strong long program per-
formance.
"We were very pleased with how we
skated," Tarnow said.
But because the team did not meet
its expectations, Tarnow said the Cham-
pionships were "a little bit frustrating."
Miyoshi also questioned the way the
team was judged during the competi-
tion.
"There is a lot of politics involved
and without them we would have done
a little better," Miyoshi said.
She also said that although the team
was unable to place in the top six this
year, becoming an International team is
still its main goal in the future.
Perhaps the Wolverines' greatest
chance of improving to become an
International team in the coming years
will take place next weekend.
Over two days, the team will hold its
recruitment weekend. The activities the
team holds for the recruits include din-
ner, a skating clinic, sitting in on class,
a skating promotional video and the
official Michigan admissions video.
