Michigan sports the weekend in review

Wildcats wash out Blue

Frankly, hoopsters

I

By PAULA SCHIPPER
When the Michigan women's swim
team faced 1983 Big Ten Champion
Ohio State on Saturday and then Nor-
thwestern, last year's 10th-place team
in the conference on Sunday, the
Wolverines had a feeling they would
earn a split.
But beating Ohio State and losing to
Northwestern? No one could have
forecast Ohio State drowing, 89-51, or
the Michigan loss to the Wildcats, 79-59.
SUE CAHILL admitted she was puzzled
that the Wolverines' success against
the Buckeyes did not carry over to the
Northwestern meet. "We didn't think
they (the Wildcats) would be getting
the second and third spots," said the

senior. "I know we were not tired
physically from the Ohio State meet,
just mentally."
But you can't be tired for that Wild-
cat dual meet strength which stems
from the powerhouse combination of
Martha Jahn and Ginni Vath. Vath
captured first place in the 200-and 100-
yard breast. Jahn, a Big Ten Cha-
mpion, sank the Wolverine challengers
in the 200- and 500-yard freestyle and
the 200 butterfly.
"Jahn can swim anything she wants
to swim and that's it," said Michigan
coach Peter Lindsay.
FOR MICHIGAN, Freshman Jane
Esselstyn in the 200 back and Lisa Lun-
sford in the 100 butterfly took firsts. It

was Cahill, however, who turned in the
most impressive Michigan times of the
day in the 400-individual medley (first),
and the 200 freestyle (second).
"Sue had a real good meet," said
Lindsay. "She's a senior and she could
come back from the second day (after
the Ohio State meet) at full strength.
The freshman don't have the experien-
ce to do that.
"As far as Northwestern goes, I think
they swam well which was exactly what
I expected them to do."
APPARENTLY NORTHWESTERN had
not dreamed of doing so well against
Michigan. "We were lucky to do as well
as we did, just luck," said Wildcat
coach Pat Barry. "I was impressed to
see how well Michigan did against
O.S.U." -
Northwestern scored well ahead of
the Wolverines, although it competed
without a diving team. The Wildcats
suspended their diving program until
new diving facilities at Northwestern
are ready in the spring.
So, Michigan diving coach Dick Kim-
ball used the meet to work out Diane
Dudeck, Angie Poretta, and Martha
Dresbach. With these scores on Sun-

... first in 400 I.M.
day, all three divers qualified for the
NCAA finals.
Grapplers complete sweep
Michigan wrestlers improved their
team record to 3-5, beating Arizona
State handily, 28-11, in the finale of
Saturday night's triangle meet at
Crisler Arena.
The victory, which followed a similar
trouncing of Indiana (38-6) earlier
Saturday, gave the Wolverines a clean
sweep of the meet. It also snapped a
four-game winning streak the 17th-
ranked Sun Devils had carried into the
match.
MICHIGAN TOOK command of the
matchmearly withathe one-two punch of
William Waters and Joe McFarland.
Waters, who seems to thrive on the
pressure, won his second one-point
decision of the night, 3-2. McFarland,
the NCAA's number-two ranked
wrestler continued his trek toward
number one with an easy 16-4 major
decision over ASU's'Gary Bairos.
Arizona State, however, refused to let
the match get away from it so soon.
The Sun Devils sandwiched a decision
and a major decision at 132 pounds and
150 pounds around a 14-7 decision by
Wolverine Dan Stone to pull within
three, 11-8.
But Don Forchione, who provided a
decisive pin against Indiana, took
another six points when ASU's Dennie
Roberts defaulted due to an injury.
Kevin Hill followed up with a major
decision, 11-3, extinguishing any fire
the Sun Devils had left in them.
With the match securely in
Michigan's hands 21-11, Kirk Trost and
Rob Rechsteiner initiated "Operation
mop-up." Trost's match, however, tur-
ned out to be one of the toughest mat-
ches of the night and he only narrowly
took the 4-2 decision.
Rechsteiner, who has looked awesome
lately, gave another exhibition of the
art of wrestling. His major decision
(11-3) over Arizona State's Rod Severn
completed the evening's work with
Michigan on top, 28-11.

Like Scarlet O'Hara's Atlanta plan-
tation, the Michigan women's basket-
ball season appears as if it is already
gone with the wind. After Sunday's 77-
63 loss to Wisconsin, the Wolverines'
record dropped to 2-10, 0-4 in the Big
Ten.
The Badgers stormed into Crisler
Arena, much like General Sherman and
his Yankee army, and dominated play
throughout the first half. Janet Huff led
the Wisconsin onslaught with 22 points
and point guard Sheila Driver added 17.
SENIOR FORWARD Wendy
Bradetich countered with 16 for the
Wolverines. Freshman Jerene Mid-
dleton tossed in 12, but for the most
part, Michigan couldn't hit even a two-
foot jump shot.
Without substantial height, the
Wolverines lost the battle under the
boards, getting outrebounded 41-27.
"We didn't block out well in our zone
or man-to-man (defenses)," said
Michigan head coach Gloria Soluk. "We
really couldn't contain their big girls."

The loss of 6-7 freshman Lyn
Morozko to academic ineligibility wa
evident as the Badgers continuous)
picked off caroms despite good positio
by the Michigan players.
"YOU'RE ALWAYS going to miss
6-7 center," Soluk said. "But we realiq
she's gone and we're just going to hay
to get along without her."
Although the Wolverines faced a 40-
deficit at intermission, they did sho'
some life in the second half, breakin
Wisconsin's full court press to scor
some easy lay-ups.
"We dug ourselves in a hole in the fi
st half," said Soluk. "We played ther
even in the second half, but we wer
just too deep-inthe hole."
Michigan will have a chance to turn
around Friday night at Ohio State. A
ter all, tomorrow is another day, an
frankly my dear, Gloria Soluk an
company do give a damn.
Morozko loses eligibilitv
Due to poor grades for the fa
semester, Michigan women's cag
Lynn Morozko has been declare
academically ineligible. Morozk
became ineligible last week and did n
play in losses to Minnesotaand Wisco
'sin.
The loss of the 6-7 center may turn oi
to be a sizeable loss for the Wolverine
Michigan now faces the arduous task
competing in theBig Ten without a trL
center.
"We are going to run more," sai
Michigan head coach Gloria Soluk. "
are going to have to have gree
shooting. It's going to be tough to ho
the opposing center down."
When asked if the Wolverines coul
now be competitive in the conferenc
Soluk replied: "It's going to be tougi
but we can compete because we almo!
beat Minnesota (without Morozko) an
we were leading Iowa at the half (wit
her)."
Through eight games Morozko wa
averaging 5.7 points and 4.7 rebound
per game.

Before the starter's gun went off for
the Eastern Michigan Invitational
Friday, it was hard to tell whether
Michigan's 1984 track season would get
out of the blocks smoothly. And
although there were some fine efforts
from the Wolverines, the meet did little
to reveal what may lie ahead.
Of course, Michigan did not go com-
pletely all-out. Coach Jack Harvey did
not choose to use all of his athletes,
preferring instead to run hard and fast
this weekend when the Wolverines host
the Michigan Relays.
STILL, THE team claimed 19 spots in
the one through six scoring positions,
including six second-place finishes.
Michigan's lone winner was John
Nielsen in the shotput.
By comparison, the host team Hurons
had a field day, grabbing 38 scoring
positions, including 10 first-place and 10
second-place finishes. Eastern
definitely wanted to put its best foot
forward at its own meet, and the
Wolverines will have the same oppor-
tunity at the Michigan Relays.

x{
lsEMU,
One interesting aspect of the u
coming meet will be to see how fres
men John Lawton and Scott Crawfo
continue to develop. Lawton had an i
pressive second-place showing in t
400-meter open dash at Ypsilanti, whi
Crawford leaped 22'81", good for fou
th place in the long jump.
CRAWFORD'S TEAMMATE, De
Harper, finished second in the san
event after jumping 24'3". In betwee
jumps; Harper found some time, 6.
seconds to be exact, to run the 55-met
dash. He finished fifth.
Other results from Friday's actic
include Dan Elliott's third-place finiE
in the 1000-yard run, Rob Grainger ar
George Yoanides taking fourth and fif
in the 600-meter dash, and Das
Woolley clearing 15'6" for a fourti
place tie in the pole vault. 4
One of the meet's highlights was t
performance of Dennis Lewis. Lewis,
high jumper who entered the open me
unattached to a team or club, got off ti
ground 7'41/". That height meets ti
Olympic standard and qualifies Lew
for the Olympic trials later this year
