He was undoubtedly the most
dominating force on the nation's
most dominating team. Walton fig-
ured in every one of UCLA's 26
victories during the regular sea-
son, continuing a personal streak

of Florida was represented by
ten.
Coach Johanna High noted that
three Olympians were entered
in the event and that "the quali-
ty of the meet was really very
good."
Undoubtedly, the Wolverine
squads finest and most satisfy-
ing moment came in the 400-
yard medley relay. The team of
Laura Pasternak, Jennie Orr;
Maggie Stevens, and Debbie
Glassman established a national
intercollegiate record with time
of 4:09.9 as they finished ahead
of the formidable A. S. U: swim-
mers, some of whom have been
granted scholarships by the Ari-
zonaschool.
This, however, was not the
sole notable achievement on the
part of the Michigan team mem-
bers. Laura Pasternak turned
in the best showing in the 50-
yard backstroke with a 28.5 time
and captured a second-place
finish in the 100-yard backstroke
with a 1:01.4 performance.
Maggie Stevens took two third-
place finishes in the 50 and 100-
yard butterfly races' with times
of 27.7 and 1:00.7 respectively.
Simply because there was no
one else to call upon, the same
four swimmers who set, the na-
tional record in the 400-yard
medleyrrelay, had no choice but
to compete in the 200-yard med-
ley relay as well. Necessity is
the mother of contention, and
their time, 1:55.9 was good
enough to afford them third-
place.
In the diving competition, the
fifth and final member of the
Michigan team, Andrea White-
law, finished second on the three
.meter board and fifth over-all on
the one-meter board.
The somewhat frustrating ex-

meet
perience of facing an opponent
'with far more swimmers and
greater financial backing is not
an entirely novel situation for
the Michigan women swimmers.
Several weeks ago they took
second in the Big Ten Meet at
MSU while taking ten of fifteen
first - place finishes and setting
ten meet records though far out-
numbered by the MSU squad.
Sufficient funds to send five
swimmers and their coach to
Idaho were scraped together,
and once again their accomplish-
ments must be considered all the
more remarkable in view of the
handicaps with which they strug-
gled.
Perhaps there is more to fol-
low. Allowed High, "Everybody
swam close to their best times,
and they really held up well un-
der pressure." But, she also
stated, "Laura (Pasternak), An-
drea (Whitelaw), and Maggie
(Stevens) have a very good
chance to participate in the
World Games in Moscow." She
no longer referred to Moscow,
Idaho.

44-year history of the award, two
athletes, San Diego's Dan Mc-
Laughlin and Kalamazoo's Jim
Warner, tied for the award last
year. McLaughlin competed in the
Residence Hall Division while
Warner was a member of the In-
dependent Division.
There is an awards banquet in
the planning stages for the final
week of classes and if it occurs
the trophies will flow "As freely
as the beer. Along with the Earl
Riskey award, a trophy will be
presented to the year's outstanding
intramural official, also to be de-
termined by the intramural staff.
In each major division of intra-
mural play, the championship
team will receive an all-year
championship award, while the
runner-up team in these divisions
settle for a second place trophy.
Little consolation, but at least it
is a trophy.
In the Fraternity, "M" Gals,
Independent, Graduate and Resi-
dence Hall divisions, the athlete
and manager of the year will cart
off honors. These distinctions are
to be decided by division manag-
ers votes and intramural staff con-
sideration.
AND THE AWARDS continue. In
the Fraternity Division, a "points-
per-man trophy will be given. This
award is tabulated by dividing the
number of men in a fraternity into
the number of points that house
accumulates during the year's fes-
tivities. Last year's recipient of
this honor was Kappa Sigma and
according to reliable sources, they
are in a solid repeating position
at the moment.
The hoped-for awards banquet
looms as the final big event of the
intramural season. With honors
ranging from the Earl Riskey tro-
phy to the manager of the year
trophy and with futures for these
trophies ranging from prized pos-
sessions to paperweights, the 1972-
1973 intramural campaign should
bow out with a bang.
