Icers to hook

By CHRIS GERBASI
"You should have seen the one that
got away."
That old fishing line can sometimes
apply to college athletics when a
discarded recruit or a transfer comes
back to haunt a team.
MICHIGAN'S hockey team has had
its share of "ones that got away," in-
duiding such standouts as Mike Don-
nelly and Troy Thrun.
Thrun, now with Western Michigan,
transferred from the Wolverines after
being cut by former coach John Gior-
no. Thrun only went on to score 23
goals and 29 assists for the Broncos last

year.
Donnelly, a left wing for Michigan
State, is an example of a recruit Gior-
dano failed to reel in. Now Donnelly is
the second-leading goal scorer for the
Spartans. MSU, the nation's number-
one ranked team, hosts the Wolverines
tonight in the first game of a home-and-
home series.
"WHEN I was coming out of high
school, I talked to Giordano," said
Donnelly. "He wanted to wait until my
final grades to see if I'd be accepted (by
Michigan). Then I was accepted and I
went back to him and he told me he had
given the scholarship away."

tt
up wit
At that point, Donnelly, a junior from
Livonia Franklin High School, went on
to State. He made coach Ron Mason's
final cuts but decided to play junior
hockey for a year to add strength and
experience.
Michigan's loss has proved to be the
Spartans' gain.
"HIS ABILITY to skate is his best
asset," said Mason. "He has great ac-
celeration and he's always a threat
anytime he's on the ice. He's able to
finish a play well."
Donnelly has finished a play with a
goal 18 times this season, second only to
Craig Simpson's 20 on the team. Among

those goals are five game-winners and
two against Michigan earlier this
season.
"I like to play them (Michigan)," the
5'11", 176-pound winger said. "I know
some of the players well. I play in the
summer with six or eight of the guys. I
seem to play well against them."
WITH A total of 20 players from both
teams from the state of Michigan, the
traditional Wolverine-Spartan rivalry
is almost a paradox since many of the
players are close friends.
Paul Kobylarz, Michigan's senior
right wing, is also from Livonia and
played against Donnelly in high school.
"A lot of our players know a lot of
Michigan Hockey
Statistics

their players," said Kobylarz. "Mike's
a really good friend, I've skated with
him the past few summers. We run into
each other quite a bit at rinks because
everybody's looking for ice time."
BUT ONCE the players hit the ice in
CCHA play, the friendship ends and the
rivalry begins.
"Just the fact that you're playing
State is incentive enough," said
Kobylarz. "If you can't get fired up for
Michigan State, you can't get fired up
for anyone. The friends and everything
adds to it, but there's incentive anytime
you play Green and White."
Donnelly also enjoys the rivalry. "It's
great to play in front of fans that know
me, since I'm from Michigan. When I
was younger, I never heard about
Michigan State hockey. I always heard
about Michigan. It's great to be able to
play against them."
CERTAINLY all hockey fans have
now heard of the Spartans, who have a
15-game winning streak and a 25-3
overall record. Donnelly is far from
being a big fish in a small pond.
"We have depth and experience," he
said. "We have the two best goalies in
the league (CCHA leaders Bob Essensa
and Norm Foster), maybe in the nation,

I don't know. We come with four lines
every game, where most teams have
two good lines tops. We seem to wear
teams down."
The Spartans are wearing down the
CCHA as they lead Lake Superior by a
comfortable 12 points. MSU has a
magic number of four to clinch the
league title and could reduce that num-
ber with a couple of wins over
Michigan. The Wolverines have
defeated State only once in the last fif-
teen meetings.
Both Mason and Donnelly are ever-
cautious about the team's chances for
the NCAA championship, as is typical
of players and coaches who don't want
to admit how good their team is. But
chances are the Spartans will again
challenge for the title in Detroit.
"Before the season, our goal was to
win at Joe Louis three times (site of the
GLI tournament, CCHA and NCAA
playoffs)," said Donnelly. "So far,
we're one-for-one (the GLI) and we're
hoping to get down there again."

' swimmers set to sink Indiana

} By EMILY BRIDGHAM
Kicking off the season with a bang,
.the Michigan men's swim team will
face arch-rival and last year's Big Ten
_hampion the Indiana Hoosiers, tonight
in one of the biggest meets of the
season.
Tonight's dual met will feature four
,Qlympians. in an important contest,
according to Michigan head swim
vcoach Jon Urbanchek.
"INDIANA WILL be our true test,"

will need to rely on our veterans in the
dual meets, but this year's freshman
class will be instrumental."
DOMINATING THE Wolverine
squad are sophomore Dave Kerska in
the sprint freestyle event, junior Lance
Schroeder in the 100- and 200-meter fly,
and junior Mark Parrish and freshman
Jan Erick Olsen in the 100- and 200-
meter breaststroke. The freestyle
distance races, provide a talented mat-
ch-up with junior Olympian Benoit

"We have a good diving team," he
said, "but whether or not we can com-
pete with teams of Michigan's caliber is
a question mark."
Heading into tonight's meet, the
Hoosiers are sporting a 4-1 overall
record and a 1-0 conference mark, after
clobbering Ohio State 74-39.
Coached by Doc Counsilman, Indiana
has claimed 7 NCAA titles and 21 Big
Ten Championships. Building the
strong nucleus of Hoosiers are Cliff
Looschen and Doug Boyd in the sprint
freestyle, with John Waldman at the
helm in the breaststroke events. Adding
depth to the Indiana squad are distan-
cers Madruga and Vellejo.

In addition to tonight's meet, Satur-
day the Wolverines will square off with
Wisconsin at 2:00 p.m. The Badgers are
5-3 and 1-0 in the conference after
defeating Iowa, and should challenge
the Woverines in the distance and
backstroke events.
The 7:30 contest at Matt Mann Pool
should go down to the wire, according to
Urbanchek. And at $1 may be the
cheapest action in town.

said Urbanchek. "They have a good
record, but we're pretty tough once we
get going."
The Wolverines are going into the
meet after downing two smaller swim
clubs, but although the squad hasn't
been challenged with a conference
meet, Urbanchek feels they will rise to
the occasion.
"Indiana has been rated number one
by swimming polls around the country,

The only problem for the Michigan
squad may arise in the relay events, but
the hopes are that Michigan divers
Bruce Kimball and Kent Ferguson will
pick up the slack in the one- and three-
meter diving competition.
Indiana diving coach Hobie
Billingsley is unsure how his squad will
fare against such harsh competition as,
