After a shot from the starter's
pistol, a splash in the pool and a few
quick strokes, the Michigan men's
swim team glided by the University of
Toronto Friday night 83-26.
The Wolverines jumped into their
season opener, winning eight of 16
races from the Canadian squad.
Assistant coach Mark Noetzel was
impressed with some individual per-
formances and said the meet was a
great beginning for the team.
"I'M REALLY happy with this because
it was a good meet and it showed that
these guys (Michigan) really have the
determination to win this year,''
Noetzel said. "They're serious about
training hard and it was good to start
out with a win like this."
Dave Kerska led the Wolverines
with two individual victories in the 50-
yard freestyle, touching out at 20.82,
and the 100-yard freestyle, with a
45.83. Teamed with sophomore Mike
Creaser, senior Marc Parrish and
Martin Moran, Kerska also recorded
a first-place time in the 400-yard
medley relay, at 3:25.97.
Aside from teamming for the relay
victory, Marc Parrish also scored a
win in the 200-yard breaststroke with
a time of 2:08.62. Noetzel added that
this win was not Parrish's best effort.
"I WAS REALLY impressed by the time
Marc Parrish turned in in the 400-
yard individual medley," said Noet-
zel, a former Michigan swimmer.
"He took second, but it was really a
good race for him."
Michigan's individual winners also
included Bill Kopas and senior Gary
Antonick winning, respectively, the
100-yard freestyle in 9:29.53 minutes
and the 200-yard freestyle with a time
Martin Moran scored a win in the
200-yard Butterfly in 1:51.21 and Mats
Nygren rounded out the victory
column for the Wolverines with a
4:39.03 win in the 500-yard individual
WITH A DUAL meet record of 21-1 at
Michigan and all of his roster retur-
ning, head coach John Urbanchek
hopes to take the Big Ten title away
from conference powerhouse Indiana,
to whom Michigan finished second
"Everything boils down to the Big
Ten Championships," Noetzel said.
"They're a fine group of swimmers
and have set their sights on the Big
Ten's and the NCAA's," Noetzel ad-
ded of the Wolverines, who last year
ended up 15th in the NCAA poll.
With this win, the Wolverines have
taken a dive in the right direction
towards Indianapolis, the site of this
year's NCAA Championship.

ATE LAST Saturday night, Tom Stiles, like the rest of the Michigan
Hockey team, was groping for answers.
"When we came in tonight, everyone thought we were going to win for
sure," the senior left wing said after the Wolverines were pounded 6-2 by
Michigan State in East Lansing. "We were expecting to win. We didn't
come in hoping to win, we were expecting to win."
But all the expectations only added up to false hope. Michigan had upset
the 4th-ranked Spartans Friday night, 5-4, yet the happiness had dissipated
into frustration after the bitter loss Saturday. The chants of "sweep" heard
on the Michigan locker room after Friday's game were replaced by silence
"The first five or 10 minutes of the game we played really strong - we
were outshooting them, outplaying them, outmuscling them," said senior
captain Frank Downing. "Then we got a couple of power plays and we
didn't do much, and that kind of slowed things down, and we lost our inten-
Michigan head coach Red Berenson had a simpler answer.
"I think the key was that they (Michigan State) just outplayed us right
from the start. We're kidding ourselves if we think that we played any bet-
ter than that."
No kidding. The team that showed character, played solid defense and
scored the big goal in the clutch was the Michigan Wolverines, the team
that couldn't capatilize on the power play and allowed a horrific 42 shots
Saturday was, yes, the Michigan Wolverines.
Such has been the early season tendency of this year's Wolverine hockey
team. Two exhibition losses to Team Canada are the only things that
preclude calling Michigan world-beaters at home - they are 4-0 at Yost.
Their road record is a symmetrical 0-4, including a sweep by the Bulldogs
of Ferris State, generally considered one of the toothless teams in the
CCHA. Outscored 34-18 outside of Yost, the Wolverines have found away
games a tough road to hoe.
Last weekend's series with the Spartans showed how erratic the
Wolverines are away from home sweet home.
Friday night Michigan traded goals with the highly regarded Spartans,
and after Brad McCaughey's breakaway goal at 15:19 of the third period,
Michigan held on behind some excellent goaltending by Tim Makris.
Michigan outhustled Michigan State, and the fruits of their labor were
illustrated in the 5-4 victory.
"The players really believed that they could beat Michigan State and
that was important," said Berenson after Friday's victory, easily the
biggest of the year. "If you don't think that you can do it, then you're not
going to do it."
Basking in the glory of Friday's upset, many Wolverines believed they
could do it again. Unfortunately, Michigan State was an unbeliever. State
thoroughly trounced Michigan, 6-2, at Munn Ice Arena. Following a
scoreless first period, MSU outscored Michigan 5-0 in the second, effec-
tively sweeping out any ideas the Wolverines had of taking both games
from the Spartans.
Outshot 42-17, goalies Tim Makris (playing the first two periods) and Bob
Lindgren nevertheless played solidly. They were the only two that had
good games, and that was not nearly enough.
It was disappointing, or worse. For after playing a teriffic game Friday
night, Michigan could have dismissed the question of whether it too is a
force to be dealt with in the CCHA. If not a sweep, at least a decent showing
would have shown the Wolverines are, or have the potential to be, an out-
standing hockey team this year.
After Saturday, the answer is in the negative.

ONE GOOD TURN
Cautious optimism is a phrase: that
is heard most often in diplomatic cir-
cles. However, after last weekend's
two-game split, it also describes the
mood of the Michigan volleyball
Coach Barb Canning thinks her
team 's efforts were solid in both
Friday's 3-2 loss to Northwestern and
the 3-0 win over Iowa on Saturday, but*
the Wolverines' record remained one
game below .500 at 14-15.
"I'M HAPPY with our play, but we
really wanted to win both," said Can-
ning. Had the Wolverines beaten the
Wildcats on Friday, they would be in
fifth place in the Big Ten instead of
their current residence, seventh
The reason for optimism is the im-
proved serving game and the
decrease in unforced errors. "In the@
first half of the year we were beating
ourselves with our mistakes. Now we
are concentrating on serving and
spiking much better," said Canning.
Lisa Vahi and Jayne Hickman
dominated the Hawkeyes with their
serving. "Iowa never got their offense
going against our serving game,"
Canning said of her team's 15-5, 15-2,
There is reason for caution too.
