MASTER CHARGE V
By BOB WARD
The moment has arrived. Michigan's women
swimmers start competing today at Duke in
collegiate swimming's highest competition: the
three-day meet of the Association of Intercollegiate
Athletics for Women (AIAW ).
Seventeen of Michigan's 28 women, including 12
swimmers and all five divers, have qualified to par- ,
ticipate in this year's main event, which features
top swimmers from colleges across the nation.
There will be eight events each day, and the
women will compete in those they qualified for
earlier this year. Preliminaries will begin at 2:00
p.m., and actual competition will start at 7:00 p.m.
"We probably have a shot at eighth place," said
Michigan coach Stu Isaac. "That's about as high as
we can go."
Last year, the tankers as a team placed eleventh,
just under tenth seeded Rutgers. Earlier this year,
Michigan defeated Rutgers in a close away meet.
"I'm getting anxious myself," said Isaac. "I
didn't think along the way we would have problems
in the Big Tens or Regionals (both won by
Michigan). If they perform as well, and overcome
the anxiety of national competition, they'll do
All-American freestyler Katy McCully and
National Diving champion Chris Seufert are among
those with national experience on the Michigan
squad. Most of the women participating for the
Wolverines have had national experience, either
with the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) or with the
A new face in the American nationals is freshwo-
man Lisa Matheson, a distance freestyler and but-
terflyer. "I'm looking forward to it," said
Matheson. "I think it's going to be timed just right.
I've not been swimming well these past two weeks,
but now I'm coming up."
Matheson and the others will have to be up, for
they face formidable competition. Five Olympic
finalists from the '76 games will be participating,
including Jennifer Chandler, the Olympic medalist
from Ohio State who was defeated by Michigan's
Julie Bachman at the Big Ten meet.
Nearly thirty-five women who have represented
the United States internationally will be present.
Two of them will be from Michigan, divers Bach-
man and team captain Seufert.
"It's going to be the best competition on the
collegiate level ever," said Isaac.
For these swimmers, this marks the end of a lon;
preparatory road. Since the second week of Sep-
tember, they have been practicing six days a weep
for four hours a day.
The tankers only had four days off during
Thanksgiving and three days off for Christmas.
They practiced seven days a week during January.
"It's a lot to demand of people," Isaac said, "but
they've never complained. I've never had to as*
'Why were you late for practice?' They're probably
the best people I've ever worked with."
"Right now they're at their best ever," said
Isaac, "but I think they're still a bit scared. A lot of
them are looking forward to swimming, and that's
the big difference."
As for this past week, the women have been
"resting", or tapering off in their practices.. The
recuperation period and last night's shave and rub
down, accompanied by the skin tight bathing
suits, add the final touch to their six month's
"We're in the home stretch now, there's no
holding back," said Isaac. 'We're finally letting
them go; they're ready."
BOTH WHA AND NHL ARE EAGER:
Pros drool over Debol

For those hockey players talented
enough to compete at the professinal
level, moving from team to team is an
understood fact of life. However, to
have been the property of four different
major league teams without ever
having played a pro game is a little
more unusual. Such is the case of
Michigan center Dave Debol.
Debol is a senior who has rewritten
the Michigan scoring record book in his
four years here. He was drafted as a
sophomore by the Chicago Black
Hawks of the National Hockey League
and the World Hockey Association's
New England Whalers. His WHA rights
were acquired by the EdmontonOilers,
who in turn traded them to the Cincin-
nati Stingers. The Stingers were im-
pressed enough with Debol to give up a
very popular player for him - four
year veteran Dennis Sobchuk.
"WE TOOK A LOT of heat for trading
Sobby," said John Hewig, Cincinnati's
director of player personnel. "But we
think that Debol can become even more
popular around here if he comes to play
for us. We consider him the Guy Lafleur
of college hockey."
Likewise, the Black Hawks are
holding onto their claim to Debol,
biding their time until he graduates.
"He has great offensive talent," says
Chicago Assistant General Manager
Jack Davison, "and great pro potential.
I've never regretted drafting him. I'm
convinced that he'll decide himself
where he wants to play by how bad he

prehensive about going pro, thinks he

by NHL veteran Red Berenson. He also
owns the records for most career goals
(112), assists (134), and total points
As a junior, Dave was the Western
Collegiate Hockey Association scoring
champ. He was an all-American selec-
tion, and went on to represent the
United States last spring in Europe. Of
the experience, Debol says that he was
particularly thrilled to play against
Team Canada. "It was just un-
believable to be out there facing off
against Phil Esposito."
'My only worry is about my size and strength. I talked
with Kris Manery, and he says that the guys are a lot
stronger, and that's what he had the most trouble
adjusting to. '-Dare Debol
IS RIGHT HERE!
ot The UNION
I talked with Kris Manery (who's
currently enjoying a 20-goal rookie
season with the NHL Cleveland
Barons), and he says that the guys are
a lot stronger, and that's what he had
the most trouble adjusting to. In fact,
he says that the pro game isn't as fast
as cqllege. It's more puck control, so
the passing must be more precise."
Manery, incidentally, was a standout
on Michigan's NCAA finalist team a
year ago. It was his career goal record
that Debol shattered late last season.
Regardless of Debol's fortunes in the
pro ranks, he has already had a spec-
tacular hockey career. He was
recruited by Coach Dan Farrell out of
Notre Dame High School in St. Clair
Shores. Dave arrived as a walk-on, but
was put on scholarship when he
qualified himself academically.
AS A WOLVERINE, Dave has
merely smashed the single season
Michigan records for assists and total
points with his 43 goals and 56 assists
for 99 points in his junior season. His 43
scores tied the goal record set in 1961-62
Dave's scoring output slumped to just
20 goals and 38 assists his senior year,
but he isn't worried about it. "I was get-
ting the chances," said Dave. "Last
weekend of the season a scout from
Cincinnati was up to see me play, and
he told me I was playing well."
AT THE MOMENT, Dave is leaning
towards signing a contract with the
Stingers. "They've shown a lot of in-
terest in me," he said, "and I want to go
somewhere where I know that they

Dave enjoyed a great four years at
Michigan, and it is sad to see this chap-
ter of his hockey life come to a close.
But considering all of the attention the
Stingers have paid Dave, it seems quite
likely that he is to soon start on another.
