football championship (and a

will be competing in the NCAA na-
tionals at Michigan State.
The Michigan girls have fin-

seven years. Last year was the
exception when they placed third

team will be aiming at "We're
number one" again against some
of the best women swimmers in
the country.
Captain, and senior, Lynn Alli-
son has been greatly pleased by
the performances turned in this
year by the younger girls.
Take the Michigan Invitational
Meet, held two weeks ago at
Wayne State, for example.
For the seventh time in e i g h t
years, Michigan took top honors
with 102 points, well ahead of
Central with 88 and Wayne with
51. And it was the freshmen and
sophomores who shined.
Except for Lynn Allison's re-
cord-setting :26.7 in the 50-yard
freestyle, Michigan's seven vic-
tories in the 12 events (including
both relays) were accounted for
by the underclassmen.
The 200-yard medlay relay of
sophs Johanna Cooke and Barb
Patterson, and frosh Jan Darrah
and Kathy Stidwell clocked a
2:05.3 to slash the old record by
more than four seconds.
Miss Cooke's first of two in-
dividual wins came in the 50-yard
breaststroke, her :35.4 breaking
the previous record by a tenth of
{a second.

The 100-yard backstroke went
to Miss Darrah, before Miss Stid-
well rewrote the record book in
the 100-yard fly with a 1:07.1.
The 200-yard free relay made
it a Michigan day setting a new
record in 1:47.1, five seconds un-
der the old mark.
These are the girls Michigan
will take to face the likes of
Central's captain, Lyn Allsup.
A senior, and a member of the
1964 Olympic team, she took three
individual firsts at Wayne: in the
100-yard IM, the 50-yard butter-
fly, and the 100-yard freestyle,
setting a record in the fly with a
:28.9, two seconds faster than the
1967 record.
Football isn't the only sport
where Michigan may find itself
the national champion.

to Michigan from the school
which has produced several Wol-
verine athletic greats including
Ron Johnson, and Jim Pitts, '67-
'68 basketball captain.
Freshman coach George Pomey
described the game as, "a match
the freshmen are never expected
to win."
"The biggest problem the team
will have is defense. Our weak-
ness is in our lack of height. But
the boys are good ball' handlers,"
he added.
The varsity will open with an
offense built around running. "We
have developed two new offensive
patterns this year," varsity coach
Orr explained, "one with and one
without a pivot. Both are major
changes from last years attack."
"But we hope to see the biggest
improvement this year in our de-
fense," Orr commented.
Besides Tomjanovich, the var-
sity starting five will highlight
sophomore Dan Fife, Mark Hen-
ry, Dennis Stewart, and Bob Sul-
livan. Others contending for start-
ing positions are junior college
transfer Rich Carter, Rod Ford,
and Rick Bloodworth.
Optimism for this year's t e a m
centers around the return of four
veterans. Tomjanovich and Ste-
wart who respectively averaged
19.5 and 17.7 points a game last
year are being counted on to con-
tinue the surge with which t he
team finished last season.
Maxey's floor leadership and
Sullivan's versatile performance
are also considered vital ingred-
ients for this year's Big Ten con-
tenders.
Monday's match is the seven-
teenth in the freshman-varsity
series. Only once, in 1956, have the
frosh been able to pull an upset.
