Ortmeyer and Shouneyia fill
leadership roles for Michigan

By Charles Paradis
Daily Sports Writer

For the second straight year, Michigan hockey coach
Red Berenson took the duty of naming the team's captains
himself, and for the second straight year, senior forward
Jed Ortmeyer will bear the captain's "C" on his shoulder.
Ortmeyer will become just the seventh Wolverine to be
captain of the team in back-to-back seasons. Not only was
he the team's leader last season, but Ortmeyer was also
one of the recipients of the Hal Downes Trophy, presented
to the team's Most Valuable Player. Leadership, which was
a question on occasion last season, is no longer an issue.
"I like the captains going into the season," Berenson
said. "Last year, there was some concern or certainly
some unknowns about our captains, but this year with
Ortmeyer coming back after having a strong first year as
captain, we'll have no leadership problems, particularly
with John Shouneyia, another senior, as an assistant cap-
tain."
While Ortmeyer says he leads mostly by example,
Berenson knows that his captain will speak up when
someone has to take charge.
"I look back to the playoffs last year and the Denver
game," Berenson said. "Ortmeyer just grabbed the bell
himself, not only in the lockerroom, but on the ice. He

was saying it off the ice and he was doing it on the ice."
Junior defenseman Andy Burnes will join Shouneyia as
an assistant captain. The role is nothing new to
Shouneyia, who like Ortmeyer, held the position last sea-
son. Michigan's. leading active goal scorer, Shouneyia is
once again expected to be one of the Wolverines' leaders
on offense.
"I thought (Shouneyia) accepted that role well last year
and will be even stronger this year," Berenson said.
While Burnes was not a captain last year, he has had
experience as a leader in junior hockey. Berenson believes
Burnes is "captain material" and will lead in his own way.
"This is Andy's first experience as a captain, he will
speak up in a quiet way," Berenson said. "I think most of
his leadership will come in the way he plays and the way
he practices."
The return of two of Michigan's three captains from last
year made this year's choice a natural one for Berenson
and the coaching staff.
"I think the process kind of worked itself out," Beren-
son said. "It was obvious to everyone that Jed Ortmeyer
did an outstanding job as a captain last year. We could
have had an election, and I'm sure the players would have
elected the same captains. But I wanted to show Jed and
Johnny that we had the confidence in them, and we didn't
have to have the election for it."

Undefeated Blue ready for MAC

By Brian Schick
Daily Sports Writer

In recent years, the Michigan
women's soccer team has become used
to beginning the nonconference season
with a losing record. In the past two
seasons, the Wolverines have started the
season 0-2, dropping nonconference
matches to some of the nation's top
teams - like California and Missouri,
both ranked in the top 15 at the time.
This season has seen the exact oppo-
site.
The Wolverines will enter this week-
end's homestand 2-0, facing an in-state

series against Western Michigan tonight
and Eastern Michigan on Sunday.
"Every year we play top competition
early in the season," Michigan coach
Debbie Rademacher said. "We've come
up short in very close games (in the
past two seasons), and it was a goal for
us to get off to a strong start."
The strong start this year began 36
seconds into the season off the foot of
freshman forward Therese Heaton
against the favored Florida Gators last
week. Heaton added another in the first
half, and the Wolverines upset them, 2-0.
Monday, Michigan found itself
behind early in the game on a Bringham

Young goal in the 11th minute but came
from behind with two second-half goals
to win its second game of the season.
Rademacher felt that both games
provided a unique experience for her
team in the early stages of the season,
giving the Wolverines the chance to
protect a lead in one game and rally for
a comeback all in one weekend.
"There's a lot of times when the team
is behind, and we're not sure what to
do," Rademacher said. "These two
games gave us experience that might
have taken (longer in the season) to get
those situations; having both extremes
in one weekend was a plus.

WHO WAS THE BETTER WARRIOR?
According to the U.S. mil-
itary studies conducted
in WWII, only 15-20% of
riflemen fired weapons in
combat. In Vietnam, the
same studies showed that
95% of riflemen fired their
weapons. The difference
was in the intense train-
ing. An unforeseen side
effect was an increase in
PTSD.

VARSITY SOCCER FIELD
Who: Michigan (2-0) vs. Western Michigan
(2-0), Eastern Michigan (1-1)
When: 4 p.m. tonight, 2 p.m. Sunday
Latest: No. 9 Michigan looks to keep rolling
after last week's upset of Florida and come-
from-behind win against Bringham Young.
"Against Florida, we were up the
whole game and defending that 2-0 lead
is a difficult task, especially for that
long of a time. Against BYU, for us to
come from behind against such a great
team was another tough task."
Now that the Wolverines are experi-
enced in both aspects of winning, they
can prepare for two teams they faced
during the spring season. Michigan won
both exhibition matches back in Febru-
ary and March, defeating Eastern
Michigan 4-0 and Western Michigan 4-
1. Both squads bring different strengths
to the pitch this weekend: The Broncos
rely on their quickness while the Eagles
tend to play more physically.
Rademacher indicated that she is
happy for the opportunity to face in-
state competition.
"We haven't played them consistently
in our regular season, and we feel it's
good to play them," Rademacher said.
"We're excited because (Western and
Eastern) are going to play Michigan
State this season, so this is kind of like
an in-state Big Ten/MAC round robin."
Tonight's match against Western
kicks off at the Varsity Soccer Field at 4
p.m., and the Eagles and Wolverines
meet at 2 p.m. Sunday.
