Tankers hope to make a splash

Ten Michigan swimmers, including
junior All-American Fernando Canales,
have splashed-down in the Ann Arbor of
the East - Cambridge, Massachusetts
- for the NCAA championships.
The Wolverines will be trying to bat-
tle back from the disappointing Big Ten
Championships, when they finished a
not-so-strong second to Indiana in
Michigan's Matt Mann Pool.
Canales has qualified in four events
- the 50-, 100-, 200-, and 500-meter
freestyle competitions - and is the
Wolverine tankers' best bet to bring
home an individual national champion-

"We should have had a lot more
qualifiers than we did," said Farley.
"Indiana had a helluva meet (at the Big.

them by 150 points." Michigan placed
second to Indiana by the score 752 -
Also representing the Wolverines are
sophomore John Spaid in the 200- and
500-meter breaststroke, junior Robert
Murray and senior captain Paul Grif-

sophomore Tom Ernsting in the 100-

Noticeably absent from this list are
