The No. 4 Michigan field hockey

disappointing performance last Saturday.

Even with last weekend's difficulties,
Michigan coach Marcia Pankratz
expects her team to "respond well,
remain focused on winning a champi-
onship, continue to be consistent, and
not get too excited about any one game."
With just two Big Ten matches left,
the team stands tied with Michigan State
for second place, just one game behind
Ohio State. In order for Michigan to
defend its conference title, Ohio State
would have to lose one of its next two
matches - at Michigan State tomorrow
or against Indiana on Oct. 26.

Michigan finally broke through with a

utive victory over the
Nittany Lions since
that Big Ten final.
Pankratz has a
high level of respect
for Penn State and its
program. In compar-
ing the Nittany
Lions to her team, she believes the
squads are very similar.
"We're both possession-orientated
and like to pass a lot; she said.
Due to their similarities in style
Pankratz anticipates a close game with
the Nittany Lions.
"Like all matches against Penn State,
it will be a nail-biter between two great
programs;' she said.
As she has done all season, Pankratz
welcomes a challenge such as the one
Penn State presents. Michigan has
played all but two of the schools in the
current top ten, including a victory
against current No. 1 Old Dominion.
According to Pankratz, "strong com-
petition allows you to play at a high
level, due to an increase in your compe-
tition's speed and ability."
