YELLOW JACKETS
From Page 2B
set before juniors Veronica
Rood and Megan $ower stepped
up with two clutch kills to give
Michigan the victory, 15-13.
"They're carrying a big load
right now," Rosen said of the
upperclassmen. "They're really
playing like veterans. I'm proud
of how they're competing."
But it was sophomore setter
Lexi Zimmerman who was the
difference-maker for the Wolver-
ines.
Zimmerman had a season high
51 assists against the Yellow Jack-
ets, raising her season total to 218
through six games.
Without last year's four seniors,
Zimmerman's game had to adapt
with the new Wolverine offensive
attack.
"She doesn't have the same
tools around her as she did last
year," Rosen said. "She used to
just have to deliver to all the
great players around her, but this
year, she really has to carry the

load."
Zimmerman's clutch perfor-
mance earned her the Invitation-
al MVP as she set the pace for the
Wolverines' successful offensive
attack.
In the weekend's other two
matches, Michigan pounded
Georgia State and Arkansas, both
3-0.
offensively, the Wolverines
answered a lot of questions this
weekend about their ability to
close out points without Bruzdz-
inski's booming spike.
Bruzdzinski's replacement,
senior middle blocker Beth Kar-
piak, silenced any questions with
a team-high 16 kills against Geor-
gia Tech.
The team is still very young,
with four freshmen playing sig-
nificant roles. But with Big Ten
competition on the horizon,
Rosen is optimistic about the
team's future.
"We're pretty early in the
learning curve," Rosen said. "But
watching the girls compete this
weekend, it's clear we have a lot
of potential to be better."
