BLUE MEN AND WOMEN EXCEL:
Swimmers set records

By OWEN MEDD
The men's and women's swimming
squads traveled jointly to Toronto, On-
tario for the Etobicoke Invitational
where 30-40 of Canada's best swim
teams gathered this past weekend.
Although as a combined squad the
swimmers lost to host club and
Canadian national champions
Etobicoke, both coaches were pleased
with their team's showing.
COACH STU ISAAC'S women's team
did not do exceptionally well. "We were
at a disadvantage," Isaac stated. "We
went to the meet not resting our top ,
swimminers and they were tired. We
swim a dual meet against Etobicoke in
January and hope to be rested to give
them a good shot."
Many team members gave good all-
around performances for Michigan.
Freshman Marion Stanwood placed in
three events, and freshman Barbara
DonCarolos and Marie Palko placed in
two events each.
Junior Lori Hughes, coming off a
disappointing sophomore year, swam
many good races and finished in the top
eight in three races. The team's only
senior, Katy McCully, did a great job in
the relays, along with her usual con-
sistent job in the freestyle events.
IN THE RELAY events, the women
did well, placing third, fourth, and
eighth in the 200 medley and did as well
as second in the 400 freestyle.
Overall, Coach Isaac was satisfied.
"We have great depth. One of the
strengths of our team is that everyone
contributes. Of our 18 swimmers in the
meet, 14 placed in the top 16 in at least
one race."
"This was the first time the men and
women traveled together. The teams
supported each other. I think there will
be more and more cooperation between
the programs to make Michigan
swimming better in the future."
THE MEN'S team started off the
weekend with a dual meet win against
Toronto,;89-24.
Michigan broke five pool records
while finishing first in nine events,
losing only two.
Toronto got the top two places in only
one event, while the Blue mermen clin-
ched seven one-two finishes.
JOHN SLYKHOUSE was a double
winer in the 500 meter backstroke and
the 1000 meter freestyle. Kerry
Menegay was also a double winner in
the one and three meter diving events.
"We did have an advantage in this
meet in that we had already shaved. We
weren't pointing for the meet and alot
of the races were close," coach Gus
Stager pointed out.

What the men were pointing for was
the Etobicoke Invitational, coming
away from it with a win in the men's
division.
"WE SWAM GREAT. We had some
excellent swims, much better than we
had ever anticipated. Everybody who
went had one or two of their best swims
ever, "Stager said.
"That was a tough meet. Probably
one of the tougher meets all year."
The Michigan men showed their stuff
in many of the races, gaining ten first
place finishes in 15 events.
Sophomore Fernando Canales gar-
nered two first places along with a team
first place in the 400 meter freestyle
relay. His 100 meter freestyle first
place finish of :50.71 bested the
Canadian National record. Also, his fir-
st in the 200 meter freestyle made
national cutoffs for the NCAA meet.
KEVIN MORGAN, a senior, also
grabbed two first place finishes in the
200 meter individual medley and the 100
meter breaststroke. His teammate,
Kevin Williamson, while earning only
one blue ribbon, set three records for

his home country, Ireland.
Williamson led a one-two finish in the
1500 meter freestyle. His swim set
records at 800 and 1500 meters. In the
400 meter individual medley, William-
son set another Irish mark while
finishing fourth.
Michigan showed strong performan-
ces in many events. They swept the top
three places in the 100 meter breast-
stroke. The Blue mermen swam for the
top two positions in the 100 meter
freestyle, 400 meter freestyle relay, 200
meter breaststroke, and the 400 meter
medley relay.
IN THE loo meter butterfly, a strong
Blue performance gained second
through fourth, with freshman Scott
Crowder finishing only nine-tenths of a
second behind world champ Dan
Thompson.
Coach Stager was happy with his
swimmer's performance.
"The most outstanding performance
was from Canales, but it's hard to
separate it from the others since the
team swam alot of personal bests."
