By KARL WHEATLEY
Things are just not the same this year
for the Michigan women's swim team.,
the women tankers are still coached by
Stu Isaac and diving mentor Dick Kim-
ball, and they will once again start off
their season at the Bowling Green
Relays today and tomorrow.
But this season is different ┬░because
the Blue tankers must battle to regahi
the Big Ten championship title which
Indiana snatched away from them last
year after they had won it five con-
secutive times.

"I think we can win the Big Ten title
this year," Isaac said. "We'll have to
swim well to do it, but I think we have
improved more than Indiana."
The head coach also believes that the
Michigan swimmers can crack the top
six at the AIAW nationals in March.
According to Isaac, many of the
nation's top teams will go to the NCAA
Championships rather than the AIAW in
1982. To finish in the top six, though, the
Wolverines must still advance past five
or six teams that beat them in the
natinals last year. "The nationals are
our main emphasis," said Isaac. "It
would be great to win the Big Ten meet,
but we really aim for the nationals."
A strong group of returning swim-
mers makes it likely that the
Wolverines will be right in the thick of
the conference championships. Back
from last year are Big Ten champions
Milinda Copp and Sue Cahill in the 200
and 400-meter individual medleys,
respectively, butterflyer Denise Stun-
tzner, and three members of the 400-
meter medley team (Copp, Chris Hod-
son, and Carolyn Clymer).
ISAAC HAS several newcomers wno
will undoubtedly provide the tankers
with added depth. The team lists 22
swimmers on its roster currently com-
pared to only 16 in 1980-81, and several

of the first-year Wolverines are expec-
ted to make a big impact.
One of the fresh faces belongs to
Tammy Daumier, the gold medalist in
the 100-meter breaststroke at the 1979
Pan-American Games. Also coming to
Michigan this year is Diane Dudek, a
freshman from Seminole, Florida who
was the 1981 U.S. Nationals champion
off the one-meter board, and
sophomore Lisa Trombley, another
primising diver. A good middle distan-
ce freestyler, Leslie Beck will
strengthen the Wolverines in their
weakest area, the freestyle events.
Linda Jacob, a senior breast-stroker
who has not swum competitively since
her high school years.
The tankers lost several team mem-
bers to graduation, most notably Julie
Bachman, a past All-American and an
eighth-place finisher in the AIAW
meet last year. Veteran diver Vicki
Kimball, a ninth-place finisher in last
year's AIAW meet, along with Dudek
and Trombley, will attempt to fill this
gap in the Michigan diving corps.
The Wolverines possess adequate
talent with which to chase its goals, but
Indiana presence will probably make
the job difficult for them. The Hoosiers
are Michigan's archrivals in the world

of women's swimming, and they look
strong again this year. Gone is Theresa
Andrews, who captured four individual
Big Ten titles for Indiana last year, but
the Hoosiers, remain a very com-
petitive outfit.
With a strong squad-and tough com-
petition ahead, the ingredients for an
exciting season are present - only time
will tell if things are going to return to
normal for the Wolverine tankers this
year.

Isaac
... optimist head coach.

ALTHOUGH last year's squad failed
to reach its preseason goals in both the
Big Ten meet and the AIAW nationals,
Isaac is not worried about it. "If
anything, it took the pressure off of us,"
he said of the Wolverines' second-
place Big Ten finish last year. And the
fact that the women swimmers did not
reach Isaac's goals last year has not
stopped him from announcing what he
expects from them this year.
