Teammates Elect Connie Hill
To Hockey Post Three Times

Diminutive Connie Hill was re-
elected captain of the University
of Michigan hockey team for th(
1947-48 season, becoming the first
player in Wolverine history to b(
honored with the captaincy of an
athletic team for three years.
Only five feet, five inches tall;
Hill is one of the outstanding de-
fensemen ever to play for the
Michigan squad. His teammates
gave a verbal agreement to this
when they also chose him as the
most valuable player on the team
for the second consecutive year.
Scored 14 Points
During the past season Hill
scored two goals and made 12 as-
sists for a total of 14 points. He
spent 51 minutes in the penalty
box, earning the title of Michi-
gan's number one "Bad Man."
Connie hails from Copper Cliff,
Ontario, and has spent most of
the spare time of *his 25 years on
the hockey rink. He is pursuing
his scholastic career in the College
of Architecture.
Glasses Help
Hill is one of the few hockey
players in college circles who
wears glasses while he plays. While
this may give him some extra
sympathy from the audience at
the beginning of the game, the
feeling usually dissipates quite
rapidly once the contest is under
way. His uncanny ability to diag-
nose potential scoring plays has
probably "prevented more oppon-
ents' scores than any Wolverine
save goalie Jack MacDonald.
NOw is the time for the Daily
sports editor to retire to the
"Bell" for a prolonged rest.

from Northwestern the next week-
end, and then saw their title
chances blow out when they out-
fumbled Illinois on the "Lost
Weekend" to lose, 13-9. Michigan
outgained the visitors, 332 yards
to 143, but 86,000 Homecoming
fans saw the Illini take advantage
of 12 Michigan fumbles to come
out on top.
Crisler's men journeyed to
Minnesota the following week
and handed the Gophers a 21-0
defeat to retain the "Little
Brown Jug" for the fourth
straight year. Returning to Ann
Arbor, the Wolverines continued
on the right track by lambasting
Michigan State, 55-7, with Cris-
ler using his third-stringers and
Jayvees at the end of the con-
The Wolverines wound up the
year by traveling down to Colum-
bus and shellacking Ohio State,
58-6, playing as close to perfect
football as the 79,000 fans who
watched had ever seen.
