Michigan gets a breather
Wolverines have two weeks off before Miami (Ohio)
By Antoine Pitts
Daily Sports Editor
The Michigan football team finally
has a chance to take a break. The Wol-
verines haven't had a breather since
opening practice Aug. 3, but with no
game this Saturday, things will be a
Coach Lloyd Carr will change the
team's routine a little bit this week.
There was no practice yesterday and
there will be just one film session this
afternoon for the players. The team will
practice in pads tomorrow and be back
to regular workouts for Thursday and
All of the coaches had the day off
yesterday, but Carr admitted that most
of them showed up for work anyway.
The Wolverines (4-0) return to ac-
tion a week from Saturday against Mi-
ami (Ohio) at Michigan Stadium. This
weekend Miami plays Cincinnati.
"Normally when you're playing well,
you like to keep playing," Carr said. "I
think a break is coming at the perfect
time. It gives you an opportunity to
look at some of the problems."
The break will also give some Wol-
verines a chance to get some much
needed rest to heal injuries.
Wide receiver Mercury Hayes is one
of the few Michigan players who came
out of Saturday's 23-13 win at Boston
College with an injury. Hayes has a
banged up shoulder and underwent X-
rays yesterday. No one is really sure
when Hayes was hurt though.
"He feels much better than he did
(Saturday)," Carr said. "I would hope
that it would be a bruise just like Amani
(Toomer's). He does not remember
when it happened but I think he's going
to be OK."
Tailback Tshimanga Biakabutuka
also came out of the game roughed up.
Considering the use Biakabutuka got
against the Eagles (32 carries), it's not
surprising to Carr that his star running
back is hurting a little bit.
"That turf was really hard," Carr said.
"I thought that he ran very well and I
expect him to be OK.
"The truth is this week off should
help him more than anybody. If he's
.going carry the ball 32 times, he's go-
ing to need some time off."
Quarterback Scott Dreisbach took
some big hits and left the game in the
fourth quarter. He sustained a head in-
jury at some point in the game.
"No one is exactly sure when he got
hurt," Carr said.
Dreisbach took the hits in stride, stay-
ing in the game until the coaches finally
removed him. He appeared groggy at
.the postgame press conference. Carr
claimed Dreisbach was still experienc-
ing headaches Sunday but the diagnosis
of a concussion had been ruled out.

"I think he proved again how togh
he is," Carr said. "He is one tough giy.
and that's what you need to be to play
"(Michigan head trainer) Paul
Schmidt seemstothink he is fine,"Crr
said. "We took him out because thgy
didn't feel like it was wise to put him
The off week will also give Carr a
chance to try some different things in
"It will give us a chance to look at
some other people," he said.
The coaches will also have time to hit
the recruiting trail as well as look at
some of the teams further down the
"We'll spend some time in recruit-
ing, talking to some high school
coaches," Carr said. "During the day
we'll have a period, which is something
you normally don't have time to do
when you're in a game week."
Michigan quarterback Scott Dreisbach has a couple of weeks to recover from a head injury suffered against Boston College.

Shutouts are becoming routine for
the No. 20 Michigan field hockey
team. The Wolverines started a seven-
game road swing with two games in
Philadelphia this weekend, blanking
No. 17 Temple Saturday, 2-0, and
shutting down Westchester Sunday,
Michigan has now won three con-
secutive games, all by shutout,
outscoring its opponents by an 8-0 mar-
After a heartbreaking loss to Syra-
cuse over a week ago, the Wolverines
have been dominating in their last three
"We were pretty hungry," Gia Biagi
said. "We were coming off a big win
against Stanford. Temple and
Westchester were just in the way."
Sunday, the Wolverines finished
their trip with a late-morning battle
with the Lady Rams. While Michigan
dominated the entire game, it could
not find its way out of a scoreless tie
for the first 60 minutes.
With under 10 minutes remaining,
the Wolverines opened up the flood-
Sophomore Julie Flachs took control
of the ball inside the Westchester zone
and streaked toward its goal where
Westchester was whistled for hitting
her from behind.
"It was a breakaway and two girls
came from behind me and nailed me,"
Biagi took the penalty stroke, scor-
ing her first goal of the young season.
Extra practice left the Michigan senior
with little concern as she approached
"I wasn't nervous at all," Biagi said.
"I mean, I practice that shot over and
over in practice just for that type of
Soon after that, Flachs hit the back
of the net for two goals, giving the
Wolverines an insurmountable lead.
She is now second to team leader
Sherene Smith with three goals on the
"At first it was hard when we had so
many chances and nothing was happen-
ing," Flachs said. "We had the momen-
tum and took it. It was a personal vic-
tory for me and a great victory for the
"Westchester is a good team," Biagi
said. "They're no pushover. The de-
fense was just great all-around."
Against Temple, the Wolverines con-
trol led the entire contest from the onset,
outshooting the Owls, 31-6.
Smith banged in a shot at 25:55 in
the first half to open up the scoring,
padding her team scoring lead with
her fifth goal. Biagi assisted on the
The second half was no different
than the first as Michigan controlled
the tempo. Senior co-captain Aaleya
Koreishi scored her second goal of
the season at 19:33 off a pass from
"We just came out strong," Flachs
said. "Everybody is working well and it
all just came together."

Golfers take second at tourney
By Danielle Rumore
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's golf team
took to the greens this past weekend to
kick off its 1995-1996 season.
The Wolverines placed second out of
18 teams at the two-day, 54-hole Spar-
tan Invitational, held annually at Forest
Akers West Golf Course in East Lan-
Wisconsin won the tournament with
rounds of 315-309-326 for a total of
950. Michigan finished four strokes
behind the Badgers, shooting rounds of
316-318-320 for a 954 total. The Spar-
tans finished four strokes behind the
Wolverines with rounds of 315-320-
323 for a 958 total.
Senior captain Shannon McDonald
finished second overall and led the Wol-
verines with rounds of 77-79-77.
McDonald's total of 233 was her ca-
reer-best for a 54-hole tournament.
"This was definitely one of my best
tournaments," McDonald said. "This is
certainly agood confidence builder and
a great way to start the season.
"The scary thing is, I didn't putt well.
I felt if I had done a little better job
putting the ball and made a few birdies,
I could have really had a great tourna-
McDonald was the team leader in
scoring average and was named an
Academic All-Big Ten pick each of the
past two seasons. She was also selected
as an honorable mention to the All-
Midwest District Team last season.
"Shannon had an excellent first tour-
nament and I feel (she) is just going to
get better as the season goes along,"
third-year Michigan coach Kathy
Freshman Sharon Park followed
McDonald, tying for fifth place with
Ashley Webb of Illinois and Kerry
Zebick of Cincinnati. Park finished her
first collegiate tournament with rounds
of 80-79-76 for a 235 total.
Other Wolverine finishers includedjun-
iors Ashley Williams (16th) and Wendy
Westfall (26th) and freshmen Katy Loy
(21st) and Sarah Lindholm (26th).
Williams compiled rounds of81-80-
83 for a 244 total in her first collegiate
top-20 finish. Loy, an Ann Arbor Pio-
neer graduate, had rounds of 78-80-87
for a 245 total. Westfall and Lindholm
tied with rounds of 82-80-84 and 81-
80-85, respectively, for a 246 total.
"I think this tournament really shows
that our program is headed in the right
direction," Teichert said. "I think our
three freshmen showed what they are
capable of doing. They are going to
have some peaks and valleys, but they
are tournament-tough and will get noth-
ing but better as well."
Illinois State finished fourth followed
by Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Northwest-
ern, Illinois, Northern Illinois and To-
ledo. Rounding out the rest of the field
was Xavier, Alma, Ferris State and In-
dianapolis, followed by Tri-State,
