ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

welcomes one and all

Who: Jennifer Gandolph
Hometown: Greenwood, Ind,

Sport: Volleyball
Year: Freshman

By Eric Chan
Daily Sports Writer
Fast hands, fast eyes and quick wits
are all characteristics of a good table
tennis player.
The table tennis club was founded
in the early 1990s by Alex Chien, but
it died off due to lack of membership
in 1995.
The next year Ashoo Jain restarted
the club. Jain, .the former club presi-
dent, is now a member of the U.S.
National Table Tennis team. He left
Michigan last year to train, but plans
on returning.
The Michigan Table Tennis Club
meets four nights a week, Monday
through Thursday from 7-9 p.m. in
the Sports Coliseum. On Mondays
and Wednesdays the team holds intra-
club tournaments, and on Tuesdays
and Thursdays the team has open
play.
Skill levels range from beginners
- "Basement players" as LSA fresh-
man Clement Chan refers to them -
to Florida junior state champs like
Chan.
Newcomers to the club receive
quality coaching, just like the
advanced players. The better and
more experienced players are always
happy to teach the beginners a new
trick or technique.
The atmosphere between club
members is always light and friendly,
but sometimes competitive.
'I )(2 (m z

"Before matches or tournaments,
we'll sometimes have a lot of compe-
tition between the better players," said
Chan.
This year, the club's schedule
includes matches against Eastern
Michigan and Illinois. The club also
plans on attending the regional tour-
nament at Oakland University in Feb.
and then the national finals.
Last Monday, the table tennis club
took on Michigan State at the Colise-
um.
"They're a relatively new program,
and we hope to develop a rivalry
between them which will make our
matches more exciting," said club co-
president and Engineering sophomore
Zach Drennen.
Michigan dominated the B-Divi-
sion competition winning eight of the
nine matches.
Chan, Michigan's No. 1 A-Division
player took on Michigan State's No. 1
competitor, Dmitri Ryukine. Play was
fast and furious as the lead went back
and forth between the two players.
Chan fell behind in every set, but
came back in all of them to win 4-0
in a best of seven match.
But Michigan's A-Division team
fell as a whole, three matches to two.
"Above all else, the club asks that
people just come in, play and have a
good time," Drennen said.
Club dues are $20 per semester,
which pays for facilities and equip-
ment.

Why: Gandolph led the Michigan volleyball team in its upset win over No.
11 Penn State. She recorded 10 digs and a career-high 20 kills for her
11th double double in 14 games. This was the Wolverines first win over
Penn State in six years.

Thomas, Terrell key
in Bears' fourth win

CINCINNATI (AP) - The A-Train
rumbled past Sweetness and the
Kansas Comet without even slowing.
Anthony Thomas set a Bears rookie
rushing record with 188 yards yester-
day and Chicago's punishing defense
got its first shutout in eight years, 24-0
over the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bears (4-1) have won four in a
row for the first time since 1995, the
last time they made the playoffs.
They're off to their best start since
1991, when they finished 11-5.
No one got more notice than
Thomas, who set Michigan's career
rushing records. The second-round
pick had not run for more than 58
yards in a game.
Once he got rolling, no one could
stop him. He darted through big holes
on his 22 carries, topping James
Allen's rookie record of 163 yards in
1998. It was the eight-best total overall
in Bears history.
Walter Payton's best rookie game
was 134 yards. Gail Sayers managed
118.
"It's something - a rookie record
for the Bears," Thomas marveled.
"That's a compliment, that some of
those guys didn't do it. It's something
I'll think about for the rest of my life."
Chicago quarterback Jim Miller
threw his second touchdown pass, a
13-yarder to Marty Booker in the third
quarter, and Thomas sprinted around
the left end for a 23-yard touchdown
run that sent fans home with 9:05 left.
He got a lot of help from the Bears'
top two rookies. First-round pick
David Terrell led the receivers with
seven catches for 91 yards, including a

41-yard gain. Thomas made everyone
stand back and admire.
"He was unbelievable," Miller said.
"You saw it on the field. He's got a
knack. We knew it was a matter of
time for him. David and A-Train both
gave us a spark."
The crowd of 63,408 grew angry,
got ugly and left early as the Bengals
were shut out at home for the first time
in three years. Linebacker Takeo
Spikes was back after missing a game
because of his father's death, but his
emotional pregame introduction didn't
carry over.
The Bears kept it close in the first
half by missing a field goal, having
another wiped out by a penalty and'
fumbling at the Bengals' two-yard
line.
"They were consistent in what they
were doing, and we couldn't keep
them from doing what they wanted to
do," Bengals coach Dick LeBeau said.
"It seemed like they had three extra
guys in there," Dillon said. "There was
nothing we could do, so you just do
what you can."
The Bears' defense not only stopped
the Bengals, it punished them. Safety
Tony Parrish perfectly timed a hit on
Darnay Scott on a long pass in the
third quarter and knocked him out of
the game with bruised ribs.
Miller, who had thrown only three
touchdown passes all season, kept
Chicago's hunt-and-peck offense
rolling by making good choices and
accurate throws. He completed 23 of
30 passes for 232 yards, and had a 1-
yard touchdown pass to Fred Baxter in
the second quarter.

DETROIT (AP) - Luc Robitaille
couldn't have planned it any better.
He scored the game-winner
against his former team as the Red
Wings beat the Los Angeles Kings
3-2 on Saturday night.
"It was a little bit weird to start
with," Robitaille said. "I just want-
ed to win so bad. I'm glad we won."
Scotty Bowman also became the
first coach in NHL history to record
1,200 wins as Detroit (7-1-0-0) won
its fifth straight game of the season.
The Kings (2-4-1-1) upset the
Red Wings in the first round of the
Stanley Cup playoffs last spring in a
six-game series, only to eventually
lose in seven games to the Colorado
Avalanche in the second round.
Robitaille, who played 12 of his
first 15 seasons with Los Angeles,
broke a 2-2 tie with a powerplay
goal with 4:19 left in the second
period. He tipped a shot by Brendan
Shanahan past Kings goaltender
Felix Potvin while Los Angeles'
Phillip Boucher was in the penalty
box for slashing.
"That's what Luc does," said
Kings' coach Andy Murray. "He
deflects pucks into the net. He's
very good at it. We knew that. Our
concern is a shot from the point that
we shouldn't have let happen."
It was the 595th career goal for
Robitaille, who signed with the Red
Wings as a free agent during the
summer.

It was also the fifth straight game
in which he's scored.
"He tipped it in front of the net.
He doesn't miss those," the Kings'
Glenn Murray said. "He played with
us the past five, six years, so it's a
little bit weird."
Detroit got off to a 2-0 lead in the
first five minutes as Sergei Fedorov
scored 41 seconds into the game
and Brett Hull beat Felix Potvin at
4:33. Both goals were one-timers
from the slot.
"You're not supposed to start a
game like that," Potvin said. "The
Red Wings will make you pay for
that."
Murray made it 2-1 just 20 sec-
onds after Hull's goal when he put a
rebound over a sprawled Dominik
Hasek.
Craig Johnson tied it with 6:27
remaining in the first when he beat
Hasek after taking a pass from Mur-
ray on a two-on-one break.
"We stopped moving and stopped
skating," Hull said. "Early, we
brought it in and forechecked, and
then we stopped dumping it in. And
when you stop dumping it in, and
they are taking the center away, you
can't get anything going."
Hasek made 28 saves.
"We missed so many chances,"
the Kings' Andy Murray said. "You
can compliment Hasek or you can
say we need to be better. I say we
need to be better."
