Wolfpack is carbon copy of lady cagers
Collegian Sports Writer
The women’s basketball team
hasn’t faced North Carolina State in
three years, but it isn’t quite fair to
say the two teams are unfamiliar. In
truth, they know each other like a
mirror reflection.
Or a xerox copy, choose your meta
In either case, there’s no getting
around the remarkable fact that
somehow the Wolfpack, be it through
recruitment or coaching or plain old
carbon paper are a stunningly com
plete duplicate of the Lady Lions.
For starters, there is point guard
Carla Hillman, a Suzie McConnell
type according to Lady Lion Assis
tant Coach Dan Durkin. Though she
averages only 5,.4 points per game,
well below McConnell’s 12.1, it’s her
role as floor general that begs the
“She pretty much runs the show,”
Durkin said. “She pressures defensi

Softball team faces 3 foes in South Carolina
Collegian Sports Writer
The softball team will be on the
road again this weekend to play six
games in South Carolina.
Over spring break, the defending
Atlantic 10 Conference champions
began their 1986 season by compiling
a 6-5 record in a tournament at Ocoee,
Fla. After winning the first two
games of the Florida tournament, the
Lady Lions lost to Lewis University,
5-3, and were shut out in a double
header by powerful South Florida.
“We’re a very young team,” Head
Coach Sue Rankin said. “We made
some young mistakes earlier in the
week, but I thought our team really
pulled together and improved greatly
Fencers send six to NCAA Championships at Princeton
Collegian Sports Writer
Excitement and curiosity will accompany
six members of the men’s fencing team this
weekend as they travel to Princeton, N. J., for
the National Collegiate Athletic Association
The team is excited about improving upon
the fifth-place finish which it shared with the
University of Pennsylvania a year ago. Yet
nervous curiousity about the competition will
follow three freshmen newcomers.

One of the big kids for N.C. State is

been averaging 10.1 points per game
for the Wolfpack, along with 6.9 re
More imposing still is 6-3 forward
Trina Trice, the acknowledged star of
the team with 18.3 points and 7.6
rebounds per game. Like Penn
State’s Vicki Link, she leads her team
in both categories.
“I think they’re almost identical,”
N.C. State Head Coach Kay Yow said.
“We realize that about Vicki, and
they realize it about Trina.”
Given both teams’ strength inside,
the prevailing wisdom would seem to
be to try and keep each other out of
the lane. Durkin, though, isn’t so
sure. He’d rather see the Wolfpack
take its chances against Penn State’s
bruising inside game.
“N.C. State shoots as a team 50, 51
percent,” Durkin said,’“so the name
of the game is to let those kids drive
rather than shoot the jumper.”
in the last three days.”
The Lady Lions, behind strong
pitching by sophomore Beth Devlin of
Bellefonte and strong hitting by third
baseman Karen Schilling, shortstop
Nan Sichler, catcher Donna Devan
ney and Devlin, finished the Florida
tournament by winning four of their
last six games.
“One of our strengths this season is
that we’re a good hitting team,”
Rankin said.
Rankin added that although the
Lady Lions played inconsistently and
made “young mistakes” during the
Florida tournament, they should be
ready for this weekend’s tournament.

“I’m nervous but I set high goals for

top six to make the All-America team.”

That’s fine with Yow. With Trice
and Daye in the middle, the Wolfpack
would be just as happy to put it up
from the lane and fight it out with
Collins, Link and Edvinsson under
the bucket.
Yow sees the advantage in both
“We’ve been successful scoring
inside a lot,” she said, “and when we
can do that, we go to it. But we have
had those games here and there
where our guards have been the lead
ing scorers.
“We have a couple of pretty good
perimeter scorers who will put the
ball up if we have to hit from there. I
think we realize that if we get
stomped on the inside, we’ll have to
score from the outside.”
And so surprise! might the
Lady Lions. When the backcourt tan
dem of McConnell and Patti Longe
necker has been unable to work the
ball underneath to Link and centers
Bethany Collins and Pia Edvinsson,
the Lady Lions have often relied on
the devastating outside shooting of
Carolina campus, while the Lady
Lions will face Northern Illinois and
North Carolina tomorrow afternoon
and Princeton in a doubleheader Sun
day at the Pontiac Complex near
Columbia, S.C.
The Lady Lions have never played
Indiana State or Northern Ulionois,
but Penn State historically has had
great success against Princeton and
North Carolina. The Lady Lions are
undefeated in five games against
Princeton and have beaten North
Carolina in two out of three games.
Rankin said that this weekend’s
tournament should be a good experi
ence for her young team.
“The South Carolina tournament,
as well as the Florida tournament, is
important for us because we get to
Head Coach Emmanuil Kaidanov said he
was surprised that all the fencers got bids
since the team’s season had not been as
successful as it could have been.
“Overall, I thought that they might have
some problems to qualify (for the NCAAs),”
Kaidanov said. “During the season, they
didn’t have an outstanding outcome. They did
have some good achievements though.”

guard/forward Lisa Faloon.
When it comes to defending the
Lady Lions, Yow is, depending on
one’s point of view, either terribly
unsure what to key on, or just deliber
atly cryptic. Stopping McConnell, she
hinted, may be the key to stopping the
Penn State offense, but then again,
maybe not.
“We’re going into this game with
our system, and we’re just going to
try and execute it,” Yow said. “We
won’t be keying on anybody in partic
ular at the beginning, but if you
thought about keying on anybody, it
would be the point guard ... but I
think we just have to play hard and
get into the game and see what we
might have to do.”
Of the major differences between
the teams, the key one is the easiest
to find. While both teams play a
similar game with similar personnel,
the Wolfpack’s record is 18-10. Penn
State’s stands at 23-7. In addition, the
Lady Lions have risen to whatever
the occasion calls for in postseason
see teams outside of our region, 1 ’
Rankin said.
Since the Atlantic 10 Conference
champion no longer receives an auto
matic bid to the NCAA playoffs, Ran
kin noted this game is also important
from a playoff perspective.
“We need to beat the so-called big
teams in order to get a bid in the
NCAAs,” Rankin said.
With the departure of star pitcher
Mary Butler due to academic prob
lems, Rankin will count on freshman
Wendy Follweiler to join mainstays
Devlin and Aileen Polanis on the
pitching staff.
“Wendy really hasn’t played that
much yet,” Rankin said. “But with
(Butler’s) absence, she will definitely
see more playing time.”

Gymmen look to
Panthers and
Collegian Sports Writer
, If ever there was a meet that the
men’s gymnastics team would like to
get over and done with, tonight’s
meet against Pitt is it.
Although Head Coach Karl Schier
said he does not expect the Panthers
to be a threat to the team when they
meet at 7 p.m. in Pittsburgh, there is
another threat that he said could
'cause major problems for the team at
this point in the season additional
Penn State (7-1-1) will have to do
without the services of top all-around
er Spider Maxwell who is sidelined
with an arm injury caused by a
pinched nerve in his neck. Maxwell
has not performed in the last two
meets and is trying to recover for the
National Collegiate Athletic Associa
tion Championships in early April.
Also missing from the lineup is
senior Mike Dailey who resprained
an ankle in practice this week and
will not compete in his last regular
season competition.
Junior Chris Laux is slowly return
ing to full strength and will compete
on only rings and vault. Laux’s ab
sence has been felt by the Lions all
season in the all-around competition
and they are anxious for his recovery
in time for the NCAAs, but Schier
said he does not want to rush him
back into competition.
The loss of those men has caused
Schier to once again turn to the
younger members of the team to fill
in the gaps. Freshmen Jan Olsen and
Kurt Schier have been called on in
many meets to pick up the slack and
have gained excellent competition
“I never thought they’d be able to
do the kind of job they’ve done,”
junior lan Shelley said. “They’ve
done exceptionally well. And they’re

gaining experience that will be to our
benefit at the NCAA meet.”
Olsen, new to Penn State from
Denmark this January, has per
formed on the pommel horse and
vault for the Lions and has one of the
top vault scores for the team.
“He’s one of the strongest mental
competitors on the team,” Shelley
said. “He’s the kind of kid that you
know he’s going to go out there and
hit his events.”
“For a freshman, he’s doing
great,” junior Mike Ambrozy said.
“He’s been looking a lot more confi
dent on the pommel horse and his
vaulting is some of the best in the
country right now.”
Another Lion who has seen an in
crease in performance time and a
rise in scores is junior Phil Mitchell.
As the injury list grew, Mitchell was
asked to perform on additional appa
ratus and has made steady progress
in his scoring potential.
“Phil definitely has improved,”
Shelley said, “Not just in his routines,
but in the way he competes. He’s
gotten more confident throughtout
the season and his performances
show that.”
The efforts of those men should be
sufficient to see the Lions defeat the
Panthers with no major difficulty.
Pitt (10-5) has been scoring in the
mid-260s and has three strong all
around gymnasts in Mark Klafter,
Matt Peters and Jorge Sanchez.
Competing in the all-around compe
tition for the Lions will be Shelley,
junior Glen Aser and sophomore Mar
celo Ribeiro.
Schier said the team will use this
meet as a testing ground for the
NCAA competition. A strong finish
against Pitt would be a positive moti
vational force for the team as it
begins a three-week intense training
period for the championships.
