Runners try to hold
their own in Meyo
Women forced to lose top miler

past Gophers

Daily Sports Writer
Losing promising cross country
runner Jessica Armstrong to injury
made it difficult enough for the
distance-led Michigan women's
track team. But they will now
face an even greater challenge,
as sophomore miler Molly Mc-
Climon suffered a knee injury,
forcing her to redshirt the season.
"It will definitely affect us at
the Big Ten meet. She had good
chances to win both the mile and
the 3,000," distance coach Sue
Foster said.
The Wolverines will try to put
these future problems on hold as
five runners head to Notre Dame
for the Meyo Invitational this
Saturday. Junior Suzzie Thweatt,
frosh Richelle Webb, sophomore
Lisa Adams, and junior Amy
Bannister will run the mile relay
as well as individual events, and
Men looking p

junior Megan Nortz will compete
in the mile.
The other runners will compete
in the Michigan State Relays
held concurrently with the men's
meet.
The distance team will need
quality performances in the
invitational mile from Chris
Szabo and frosh Jessica Kluge,
who ran a personal best of 2
minutes and 14 seconds in the
800 meters at the Wendy's
Classic last Saturday.
Speculating on other possible
victories at Michigan State,
Henry hopes that shot-putter Julie
Victor and high-jumper Amy
McCormick will show some
leadership.
Even with the additional
burden that will be felt by the
team with the loss of McClimon
and Armstrong, Henry seems con-
fident in the team's progress.
ast Notre Dame
17'10" to earn his trip.
"Those four guys are the ones
we count on," Coach Jack Harvey
said. "They will be our big point-
scorers at the Big Ten meet."
This week's contest will be the
last tune-up for the Wolverines as
they prepare for the Central
Collegiate Championships next
weekend.
"That will be our first real test
of the year," Harvey said. "So it's
good that we will get the
opportunity to get some real
competition this week."
Another key for the
Wolverines this weekend will be
their attempt to find a supporting
cast to aid their run at a top three
finish in the Big Ten meet.
"We need four or five kids to
step up for us," Harvey said.
"They are all capable of being
factors for us later in the year if
they make the necessary im-
provements."

points against Illinois last weekend. Mitchell should be a force against
Minnesota as the Wolverines look to improve their league record.

The NCAA indoor champ-
ionships are still a month away,
but that doesn't mean the event
isn't on the mind of the men's
track team.
With impressive early-season
performances, seniors Brad Bar-
quist, Neal Newman, Brad Darr
and junior Jerry Douglas are
closing in on NCAA qualifying
efforts. This weekend, this quartet
will get another shot at the Meyo
Invitational held at Notre Dame.
Barquist will compete in the
3000 meters, where he is only
four seconds shy of qualifying,
while Newman is two seconds
short of the qualifying standard in
the 800 meters.
Douglas lowered his career
best of 7.32 seconds last week,
but still needs to get down to 7.24
seconds, while Darr, who has
cleared 17'0", must still scale

After surviving a tough two
games against Ferris State last
weekend without defenseman
Doug Evans, the Michigan hockey
team will have to pull the picture
together with yet another piece
missing.
First-year player David Wright
is now sidelined with a dislocated
shoulder which he suffered Mon-
day in practice. The rightwinger
will be forced to sit out for at least
the next three to four weeks of the
season.
Wright's injury presents good
news to at least one Wolverine,
sophomore Dan Stiver, who has
rotated in a fourth-line position
with the injured frosh. Stiver will
take permanent hold of the spot
until Wright's recovery.

ith injuries
Evans will againsbe forced to
miss competition this weekend at
Ohio State. The junior laced on his
skates for the first time yesterday
since sustaining a bruised back
muscle a week ago in practice. It
is still questionable as to when
he'll be able to return to the
lineup.
Seventh defenseman Kent
Brothers will replace Evans as he
did last weekend at Ferris State.
"We don't carry a big squad
compared to some schools that
carry anywhere from 26 to 30 play-
ers," coach Red Berenson said.
"But the players that we have can
really play.
"There's some competition to
stay in the lineup on this team.
Right now with the injuries, that
gives someone else a chance to
step up and play."

Midway through the second half
of the Illinois game last Saturday,
Michigan forward Sam Mitchell
was called for a reach-in foul.
Immediately, he turned from the
referee and threw down his mouth
piece. The call seemed to ignite a
spark in the first-year student.
"They were calling a lot of
cheap fouls," Mitchell said. "I
figured I can go to the other end
and they would call a couple like
that for us."
On the next three possessions,
Mitchell worked to get open. He
called for the ball, drove the lane,
and scored six straight for the
Wolverines.
But as has happened so much
this season, Mitchell's emotional
spurt ended. Illinois called a
timeout and then proceeded to
play Mitchell tighter. He got the
foul calls he was looking for, but
he went 0-3 from the free-throw
line. Mitchell was eventually
signaled to the bench, and Illinois
went on to win.
"Sam got tired," Michigan
coach Steve Fisher said. "When
you score two or three times in a
row, then the other guys say, 'Hey,
don't let him get another one.' So
they work harder not to let that
same person time after time get
down low and score on you."
This has been an up-and-down
year for Mitchell. He was touted as
Michigan's best rookie at the
beginning of the season. Soon he
found himself in the starting line-
up. But forward James Voskuil
returned from a foot injury, and
Freddie Hunter cleared academic
requirements. Suddenly, Mitchell
was competing for playing time.
Less than two weeks ago,
Mitchell reached his lowest point
of the the year. He was late for

practice a day before the
Wisconsin game after the time
was moved forward at the last
minute. The misunderstanding put
Mitchell inFisher's doghouse. As
soon as Mitchell entered the game
against the Badgers, he was called
for a foul. Fisher quickly sent him
back to the bench.
However, Mitchell was able to
turn things around in practice last
week.
"I've liked what he's done
since Wisconsin in his attitude andO
effort," Fisher said. "I should have
used him earlier against Indiana.
He wasn't rewarded in minutes."
But he was against Illinois, and
he produced at a time when Mich-
igan was in a dry spell. Fisher
again liked what he saw and
expects to continue using more of
Mitchell against Minnesota tonight
in Minneapolis.
Like Michigan, the Golden@
Gophers (10-7 overall, 3-4 in the
Big Ten) are struggling from an
offensive stand-point. Minnesota
has shot over 50 percent in only
one conference gamerthis season.
The Wolverines (9-9, 2-6) and
Gophers have the two worst field
goal percentages in the Big Ten.
Minnesota is led by guard
Kevin Lynch and forward Walter
Bond. Lynch is averaging 17.8
points a game. This is only Bond's
fourth week back after recovering
from an ankle injury.
Volleyball
team holds
memorial
by Jonathan Sohn
This Saturday, the Michigan
men's club volleyball team hosts a
tournament that has special mean-
ing. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. the
CCRB will hold the Scott Jeffs
Memorial Tournament. Jeffs was a
member of the squad who recently@
passed away. All Michigan team
members will be wearing black
armbands in dedication to Jeffs.
"We'd like to win this weekend
because not only will there be
good competition, but doing well
for Scott means a lot to all of us,"
co-captain Seth Feierstein said.
Some 30 teams are entered in
the tournament; many among the
upper echelon of club volleyball ins
the country. Among Michigan's op-
ponents will be last year's national
runner-up Graceland College as
well as Notre Dame, Illinois,
Frostburg State, and Kentucky.
"The schools represented are
excellent in terms of club volley-
ball," coach Peg McCarthy said.
"This will be a good test for the
upcoming Midwest Champion
ships. It has not been a stated goal
in practice, but we feel very
optimistic about winning this
tournament, barring any unforeseen
injuries."

'M' wrestlers seek revenge at CMU

Revenge will be on the minds
of two Michigan wrestlers tonight
as they and their teammates travel
to Mount Pleasant, where the
Wolverines (9-4) face Central
Michigan in non-conference ac-
tion. For sophomores Joey Gilbert
and Lanny Green, tonight's dual
meet offers them rematches with
the CMU wrestlers who dealt them
early-season defeats.
During the November match in
Ypsilanti, the 134-pounder Gilbert
was disqualified for exercising
unnecessary roughness against
Jamie McCloughan (22-8), thus
dealing Gilbert (22-6) his first loss.
"He wrestled too rough,"
wrestling coach Dale Bahr said
about Gilbert's performance at

Eastern Michigan. "Tonight should
be a very competitive and inter-
esting matchup."
At the 177-pound weight class,
Green (21-8) squares off against
Mike Galvin (25-8-1). "Their kid
(Galvin) beat Lanny in an early
tourney, but Lanny is really on a
roll now," Bahr said.
After recent clashes with na-
tional wrestling powerhouses Le-
high, Oklahoma, Indiana, and Iowa
State, the Wolverines' hearts do
not pound with fear at the prospect
of wrestling the Chippewas..
Michigan has won all eight
meets in its series with CMU,
including the last two meetings by
commanding margins of 39 points.
A Maize and Blue victory
appears secure, but Bahr avoids
exhibiting any overconfidence.
"They (CMU) are a fine col-
lege team and a power in their
conference," Bahr said. "But
they're even younger than we are,

and we have a little more talent at
the key positions. We're expecting
to win."
The team looks toward senior
Salem Yaffi (118) to lead off the
meet with a good effort. "Salem
has to come out and set the tempo
for us," Bahr said, "If he comes
out well, there is a chance we
could take the first five or six
matches."
Another key match should be at
150 pounds, where Wolverine
rookie Brian Harper meets CMU
standout Doug Schyck.
The 126-pound class, a dis-
appointment for Michigan in 1991,
is beginning to look brighter. True
frosh Mike Mihalic, despite his 0-4
mark, has improved with each
match. Last Sunday, he gave
Northwestern standout Tad Yeager
a scare for two periods before
losing 8-5. His sprained ankle has
improved, enabling him to push off
better.
