Captains lead first practices of new season

Icers getting ready
to defend last year's
Frozen Four berth
By J. Brady McCollough
Daily Sports Writer
Last Friday, for the first time in
over five months, the Michigan
hockey team returned to action in
the friendly:confines of Yost Ice
Arena. Last week's session began a
week of captains' practices, which
are led by this year's appointed.
leaders -- captain Jed Ortmeyer,
and alternate captains Mike Cam-
malleri, John Shouneyia, and Jay
Vancik.
With 10 freshmen making their
debut for the Wolverines, this year's
captains' practices are more impor-
tant than in years past.
"You never know how long it's{
going to take when the coaches get
on the ice to get your team in sync,"
coach Red Berenson said. "Obvious-
ly with a younger team it would take
longer to get your team playing the
way they need to play. These prac-
tices are really a must."
Michigan's talented freshman
class enters its first season with a
small window of time to become
acclimated to the fast pace of col-
lege hockey. Many of the players
will earn a slot in the top four lines,
making their development early in
the season crucial to the Wolver-
ines' fate in the first few months.
"You've got to prove yourself to
the upperclassmen," freshman for-
ward Eric Nystrom said. "They're
more confident with the puck. Being
a freshman, you don't want to hold
onto the puck because you don't
want to mess up. We're just trying
to get a feel for the game before the
coaches get on the ice."
Michigan has spent its first prac-
tices of the young season getting
back to the basics - skating, puck
and stick handling and intense con-
ditioning have received the most

focus from the Wolverines' cap-
tains. Michigan has also moved
players around on different lines,
trying to find the right combination
before the coaches join the team on
Monday.
While getting back on the ice and
skating again is important, the most
critical aspect of these captains'
practices may be the bonding that
goes on between the upperclassmen

and the freshmen.
"(The upperclassmen) are really
positive," Nystrom said. "When you
make a good play they cheer you on.
They make you feel pretty comfort-
able. We're all trying to impress
them by playing so hard, and they're
there to reassure us every time we
do something right."
Not only are captains' practices
the first opportunity for the fresh-

men to display their skills to their
teammates, but they also mark the
initial chance for this year's captains
to show their leadership on the ice.
"The captains can get the tempo
up a little bit," Shouneyia said. "The
young guys look to the older guys to
see how hard we're working. The
first impression is really important.
We need to show a good work

'M' ready
for trip to
Illinois
By AMson Topp
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's soccer team
begins its march toward a Big Ten title
starting tonight, when the Wolverines
travel to Champaign to take on the
Fighting Illini.
The weekend trip will also take
Michigan across the Midwest for a Sun-
day matinee in Iowa City.
After a confidence-building 4-0 vic-
tory against Detroit-Mercy on Monday,
the Wolverines are looking to extend
their two game winning streak.
"(University of Detroit) was a very
tough, physical team and obviously the
goals are going to lend confidence
going into the Big Ten opener on Fri-
day," Michigan assistant coach Scott
Forrester said.
This weekend could be Michigan's
best opportunity to improve after an
inconsistent start this season. The
Wolverines have a record of 2-3 so far
this year, but are taking the momentum
of two straight wins into the weekend.
Illinois is coming into tonight's game
with the same record of 2-3, but has lost
some confidence after losing two close
games to Syracuse and Marquette.
The Wolverines can also be comfort-
able with the fact that they have owned
this matchup since the Fighting Illini
started their soccer program just over
four years ago. Michigan has won all
four games when the two teams have
faced off in regular season play. Despite
the lopsided history, Illinois was just
