Synchros fight to keep varsity status alive

By LA VBRA CLAK

The contents of Title IX will be the defense in a
debate between Don Canham, the Board in Con-
trol p1f Intercollegiate Athletics, and the
women's synchronized swimming team. The
debate will center on the recent decision of the
Board to discontinue the synchronized swim
team as a varsity sport next year.
The team has been the only one cut next year
by the Athletic Board, and in the opinion of one
m. member, "the team is not going to take it
Iting down."
TITLE IX, established one year ago to
equalize the treatment of women's sport with
men'p, says there must be an equal number of
women's and men's sports at a collegiate level.
This year Michigan rostered 11 women's and 11
men's varsity teams. With the cut to the Syn-

chronized Swimming Team, the score comes out
uneven-Women 10, Men 11.
The board's cut has its justification based in
the male dominated sports organization NCAA.
The team was scheduled to compete as a
NCAA team next season instead of its former
league, the AIAW. However, the NCAA does not
sponsor women's synchronized swimming
teams.
Yesterday, Athletic Direktor Don Canham met
with the team's Coach Joyce Lindeman, the
team mentor for eight years, in an effort to
negotiate a review. Canham told Lindeman the
Board's decision is final and the team will not be
given a review. Just eight years ago Canham
asked Lindeman to coach the synchronized
swimmers, the first women's varsity team in
Michigan history. In her career at Michigan,
Lindeman has taken her team to every national

championship, a claim no other Wolverine team
can make.
THE TEAM members will fight for the team's
existence on the Varsity roster. A letter ex-
plaining the.team's position will be circulated to
top sports personnel around the country in hopes
of drumming, up support for the team fight to
maintain its Varsity status.
The Michigan team members will not be the
only ones affected by the elimination. One mem-
ber raised an argument for the team: "If
Michigan is cut who will Ohio State have to com-
pete with?" The Wolverines---are currently
ranked as the number three team in the nation
behind Big Ten rival Ohio State. Without com-
petition the Buckeyes could experience a similar
set-back. "And if Ohio State drops their Varsity,
number one Arizona could be doomed."
Team members also argue that the

elimination of their team could result in a
"domino effect" that will eventually end in the
sport's finish in intercollegiate competition.
Pistons trade Hubbard
PONTIAC (AP) - Detroit forward Phil Hub-
bard, a former Miehigan All-American, and cen-
ter Paul Mokeski are headed to the Cleveland
Cavaliers in exchange for power forward Kenny
Carr and reserve center Bill Laimbeer, Pistons
spokesman Bill Kreifeldt said yesterday.
The deal was completed just before the
National Baskerball Association's trading
deadline of midnight Tuesday, Kreifeldt said.
TO ACQUIRE CARR AND Laimbeer, Detroit
also agreed to give Cleveland the lesser of the
Pistons' two choices in the first round of the 1982
NBA draft, plus a second-round pick, he added.
