Women 's affiliation switch to save costs4

-

By JOE CHAPELLE
The proposed change in the affiliation
of Michigan's women's athletics from
the Association for Intercollegiate
Athletics for Women (AIAW) to the

National Collegiate Athletic
Association (NCAA) will save the
University between $60,000 and $100,000
a year, according to Athletic Director
Don Canham. The changeover, which

will take place within the next two
years, will eventually save the athletic
department close to $3 million, said
Canham.
"The total funding for women's
athletics will eventually reach $3
million a year; that is what we spend
for men's athletics," said Canham.
THE MOVE HAS been necessitated
primarily because of financial con-
siderations. The main difference bet-
ween the AIAW and the NCAA is that
the latter covers the costs of sending
women athletes to national champion-
ships.
"It is a no-choice situation," said
Canham. "We will be paying for the
NCAA assessment even if we are in the

AIAW, because of men's sports." The
amount of money saved depends on the
number of women athletes that qualify
for national championships in their
respective sports.
"I think that you will find that every
major institution in the country will
switch," said Canham. "I can't
visualize any (universities) staying in
the AIAW. If we were smaller we would
still have to go because of the funding."
THE FUNDING FOR women's
athletics currently comes out of the
money that Michigan receives from
football television coverage. However,
Canham pointed out that financial con-
siderations are not the only reason for
making the change.
"It will give women's athletics a lot
more publicity and television
coverage," he said last month. "It also
will help recruiting, which is one of the
reasons that most coaches support the
move."
Canham also stressed that the NCAA
is better organized than the AIAW.

ALTHOUGH THE MOVE to the
NCAA could have a positive effect
overall on the Michigan women's
athletic program, synchronized swim-
ming is the one sport that could be ad-
versely affected. The NCAA does not
currently sponsor a national champion-
ship for that sport. "I don't know what
will. happen to synchronized swim-
ming," Canham said. "The NCAA
could adopt it as 'a sport. We could
maintain it as an independent sport."
Because synchronized swimming will
be included in the 1984 Olympic Games,
though, the NCAA should be inclined to
sanction a national championship for
the sport. "I think that the NCAA is
looking -for a paying sport. Because
synchronized swimming will be. in-

cluded in the 1984 Olympics, I think that
it will become a paying sport like'fijute
skating," said Michigan synchronized"
swimming coach Joyce Lindemen.
"I WOULD HOPE we can show then
that we are a paying sport," Lindemen -
continued. "I think that schools like
Ohio State, Arizona and Michigan (the
traditional leaders in college syn-
chronized swimming) will have to lead
the way."
Canham is hopeful of a smooth tra-
sition from the AIAW to the NCAA. "By-
next fall we should finalize
everything," he said. "We might main-
tain a one-year membership (in the
AIAW) in order to assure a smooth
transition."

CHAMPAIGN-URBANA-The Michigan men's tennis team swept to an easy 8-1
victory over Illinois yesterday in a match that was moved indoors because of high
winds.
"We adjusted to the weather nicely and played real well on the indoor surface,"
said Michigan coach Brian Eisner.
THE WOLVERINES TOOK all seven singles matches, paced by first singles
player Matt Horwich's 7-5, 6-4 win over Jack Conlin. Second singles player Mike
Leach took a hard-fought 4-6, 6-1, 7-5 victory over Bart Woodell and third singles
player Mark Mees routed Todd Blcak 6-0, 6-2.
Eisner was especially pleased with the third doubles team of Mees and
McLaughlin, which pounded the Illini pair of Black and Neil Adams, 6-1, 6-0.
Also victorious in singles action were Rod Laser, Tom Haney, Ihor Debtyn and
Rod Shneiben. The first doubles team of Horwich and Leach won big too, defeating
Conlin and Scott Sommers, 6-1, 6-2.
The Wolverines moved to 7-4 on the year with the win, while the Illini dropped to
12-5. Michigan's next action is today, as they take on Notre Dame in South Bend.
. .Women nip OSU
Special to the Daily
Michigan women's tennis team, which seems to have a penchant for close mat-
ches this season, edged the Ohio State Buckeyes, 5-4, in a dual meet yesterday in
Columbus.
The netters captured four of the six singles contests but could only manage to
take one of the three doubles matches. The win was Michigan's second in as many
days.
ONCE AGAIN, THE WOLVERINES were helped by the sparkling play of their
top players. The four singles victories were in the top four slots, and the doubles
win was in the first spot as well.
At first singles, Michigan's Marian Kremer continued her winning ways as she
won in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2.
After he triumph in singles, Kremer teamed with Mary Mactaggert to take the
number-one doubles match from the Ohio State tandem, 6-2, 1-6, 6-2. Mactaggert
was a two-time winner as well, as she won the second singles contest with a score
of 7-5, 6-2.
IN THE THIRD SINGLES SLOT, the Wolverines' Sue Weber continued the
streak as she swept her match in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3.
The final Michigan singles win was scooped up by fourth singles player Jill Her-'
tzman. She survived a three-set marathon, 6-4, 4-6, 7-5.
The other singles players could not offer much help to the Wolverines. The last
two singles players for Michigan fell to the depth of the Buckeye squad.
IN THE FIFTH SPOT, IT started out well for Wolverine singles player Robbie
Risdon as she jumped out to a 6-3 first set win. But she dropped the following sets
6-4, 6-4, to end up on the losing side of the affair.
Michigan's Julie Naft ran into similar trouble in her sixth singles contest. After
losing the first set 6-4, she hung on to tie the second set at 5-5, but eventually lost 7
5.
On the doubles side, the number two tandem of Risdon and Naft fell in straight
sets to their Buckeye opponents, 6-4, 6-2. And the third team of Maryanne Hodges
and Sue Weber were rudely treated to a 6-2, 6-1 drubbing at the hands of the Ohi6
State team.
The netters' next match is April 7 when they host the Rockets of Toledo in Ann
Arbor.
