Notebook: Wolverines open practice with
fittest team; goalkeeper position up for grabs

Managing Sports Editor
The Michigan women's soc-
cer team hasn't even had a full
24 hours of practice yet and it's
already the fittest team coach

Greg Ryan has seen in his time at
Ann Arbor.
On Wednesday, the Wolverines
began their first day of practice,
including fitness drills in the
morning, set plays in the after-
noon and a scrimmage at night.

They will begin playing exhibi-
tion games when-they host West-
ern Michigan on Tuesday.
"This is by far and away the fit-
test, fastest, most athletic team
we have had at Michigan," Ryan
said. "We were extremely fin and

fast last year, but even more so
this year.
"I've never had a team any-
where close to this fit in the col-
lege game."
Those are hig words from
Ryan, who has spent 20 years
coaching at the collegiate level,
including the last five at Michi-
gan. The Wolverines advanced to
the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tour-
nament last year and have had
three-straight winning seasons
under Ryan.
Aside from a serious commit-
ment to its summer training, Ryan
says this year's team is one of the
deepest all around. The Wolver-
ines welcome a strong incoming
class to add to that, one that Ryan
says is contributing to the team's
overall talent level. According to
Ryan, six of the team's top-10 fit-
test athletes are underclassmen.
But Michigan also returns nine
starters to a team that finished
third in the Big 10 and just one
penalty kick shy of advancing to
the Elite 8.
"If we can keep people healthy,
this is by far the deepest team
we have had, it's the most expe-
rienced team we've ever had, it's
the most talented team we've
ever had," Ryan said. "So it gives
us a chance to go to the bench and
use that talent, and bringtremen-
dous energy onto the field."
Up for grabs
The biggest question at prac-
tice continues to be how the
Wolverines fill the void at goal-
keeper after losing fifth-year
senior keeper, Hayley Kopmeyer.
Arguably Michigan's best goal-
keeper, Kopmeyer recorded more
saves (383), shutouts (27) and fin-
ished with a lower goals-against
average (0.96) than anyone in
program history.
Three contenders will vie for
the job until the regular season,
at which point Ryan will declare
a starter. Freshman Taylor Buck-
lin, sophomore Maddie Clarfield
and junior Zaryn Jennings are
all in contention, and the first day
left little indication of who would
get the nod.'
"I think they have to fight for
the starting position in preseason
because you don't want to go into
a season unsure of who's going

to play," Ryan said. "Hopefully,
somebody steps up and stands
out, just as Haley did."
Bucklin, who has played for
the Canadian national team at the
CONCACAFUnder-17 Women's
Championship aod the Under-17
Women's World Cup, comes in
as a highly-touted recruit out of
Greenwich, Conn., whom Ryan
has called a "very talented keep-
Neither Clarfield nor Jennings
received much time in net last
year, as Kopmeyer carried the
Wolverines game after game.
"We're just going to let them
battle for the position and see
what happens," Ryan said. "So
far, for the first day, they look
Defense dominates daily
The goalkeeper situation won't
be too pressingif the defense con-
tinues its strong play from last
year, and there's no reason to sus-
pect they wouldn't.
Last season, the defense
allowed a program best 17 goals
and recorded 13 shutouts, while
setting up an offense that racked
up 42 goals last season. Anchored
by senior captain Shelina Zador-
sky and fifth-year senior Holly
Hein, the defense should benefit
from an extra year to mesh.
"I think it's been really excit-
ing so far," Zadorsky. "We've
been able to get almost every-
one in a little earlier. We've been
playing and meshing well.
"It's a lot easier (to play togeth-
er) and everyone here is just real-
ly excited to get started."
The arrival of junior trans-
fer Olivia Brannon should also
strengthen the wall that is Michi-
gan's defense. Brannon, a premier
defender out of Virginia, will be
slowed by a knee injury according
to Ryan, but was out on the field
With a perennial powerhouse
team like Penn State, who fin-
ished first last year in the Big
Ten, Michigan's defense will be
counted on from Day 1 to grab the
top spot.
"I think there is no reason why
we can't compete and win against
any team in the Big Ten," Ryan
said. "Saying it is one thing and
doing it is another."

CSG order angers

CTE to
take on
Scholarships and aid
for undocumented
students next goal
Daily StaffReporter
Two years ago this October,
a small group of University
students formed the Coalition
for Tuition Equality. The
following February, CTE held
its first in a line of protests over
more than a year - bringing
yellow shirts and posters to
protests at University's Board of
Regents meetings, the Fleming
Administration Building and
the intersection of State Street
and South University Avenue.
When the regents announced
new tuition guidelines last
month - which will grant
in-state tuition rates to many
undocumented students and
military veterans - Public
Policy junior CTE spokesman
Dan Morales said organizers
were proud of the progress
accomplished in a short period.
Only a few weeks later, CTE
has begun planning the next
steps in its crusade to expand
college access to undocumented
students. Meanwhile, Univer-
sity administrators prepare to
implement the new policy set to
take effect in January.
University spokesman Rick
Fitzgerald said the Office of
the Registrar has been creating
new forms for each distinct
pathway to in-state tuition over
the past few weeks, as they field
inquiries from students asking
how they can take advantage of
the new policy.

Proppe creates 23
commissions to
take place of those
already established
When Business senior Michael
Proppe, Central Student Govern-
ment president, issued executive
orders to establish 23 new com-
missions that upended previous
ones, he did not take into consid-
eration the input of the 52 elected
members of the Senate Assembly.
Twenty-four hours before the
commissions were established,
Proppe, a member of the youMich
party, circulated a document
written by himself and Public
Policy junior Bobby Dishell, CSG

vice president, that informed the
Senate Assembly representatives
of the changes that would take
place in the executive structure.
Though Speaker and Engi-
neering junior Andy Modelle and
Vice Speaker and LSA sophomore
Meagan Shokar, members of the
forUM party, and selected former
Commission Chairs were taken
into counsel about three weeks
before the new commissions came
into operation, they were asked to
maintain secrecy.
Hostile relations between par-
ties forUM and youMICH can be
traced back to presidential and
representative elections in March,
when youMICH filed election
code violations against forUM -
disqualifying LSA Juniors Chris
Osborn and Hayley Sakwa from
taking the presidential and vice
presidential seats despite garner-
ing a majority of the popular vote.
The debate surrounding com-

mission reorganization existed
months before Tuesday. In an
April lame-duck session of the
assembly, Proppe co-authored a
resolution that proposed the con-
solidation of 22 commissions into
18. The proposed consolidation of
the Diversity Affairs Commission
and the Minority Affairs Commis-
sion prompted four forUM repre-
sentatives, under the leadership
of CSG Representative and LSA
senior Chris Mays, to leave the
chambers, disrupting qurom and
leaving the body unable to pass
Though the resolution was
tabled for later assembly meetings,
Public Policy junior Sam Dick-
stein, forUM Communications
& Marketing Director, said he
believed that the CSG Executive
Board was now exploiting a loop-
hole in the Constitution to avoid
representative opposition.
