Tankers build

budding Blue

I .,.

By DEBBIE deFRANCES
In only his fourth year as head
coach of the men's swimming team,
Jon Urbanchek seems to be doing
what it has taken others much longer
to accomplish.
Urbanchek is building a dynasty.
AFTER SINKING Wisconsin 69-44
this weekend, the Wolverines have
now posted a season record of 5-0.
Aside from sweeping all events in the
$adger battle, Michigan earned the'
honor of being ranked the top team in
the Big Ten.
According to Urbanchek, the'
Wolverines individual victories have!
been equally impressive.
"We had some of our season bests
against Wisconsin," said Urbanchek.
"Dave Kerska and Marc Parrish, in
particular each had two bests."
KERSKA WON both the 100-and 50-
yard freestyles in :45.73 and :21.02,
respectively. Kerska also had a leg in
the winning freestyle relay team
joining Gary Antonick, Jan-Erik
Olsen, and Greg Varner, with a time
of 3:06.51.
Parrish broke a Wisconsin pool
record in the 200-yard breaststroke

with a time of 2:04.53. He also had a
win in the 200-yard individual medley
in 1:54.40.
Aside from the returning lettermen,
Urbanchek noted that this year's
freshmen seem to be doing excep-
tionally well.
"THE FRESHMEN are turning in
some really good times," Urbanchek
said. "They're showing a lot of
promise, expecially Nygren who did
very well this last meet."
Nygren recorded individual wins in
the 500-yard and 1000-yard freestyle
events, with times of 4:30.06 and
9:24.34. Nygren's performances,
along with the others, have gained
Michigan recognition nationally,
ranking the Wolverines 14th in the
NCAA.
The top of those rankings is
Michigan's ultimate goal, according
to Urbanchek.
"We've won some pretty good dual
meets so far," he said. "But they're
just all stepping stones to the Big Ten
Championships and then the
NCAA's."
Behind the strength of good
recruits, such as Jan-Erik Olsen last
year and Mats Nygren this year, Ur-

banchek is developing a powerful
team. Last year Michigan finished
second in the conference, and so far
they're en route to bettering that
mark.
Women tankers oust OSU
By taking 12 of 16 events, the
women's swim team beat Big Ten
rival Ohio State 83-57 in a home dual

meet this weekend.
"We didn't have one bad swim the
whole meet," said head coach Jim
Richardson. "So, in that sense, no one
was a standout. Everyone swam
solidly."
The Wolverines recorded seven
season-best times and raised their
overall record to 7-4-1, 1-1 in the Big
Ten. Among the many individual vic-

tors Susie Rabiah and Cecilia
each had three wins apiece.
Rabiah took the 100-yard
in :53.31 and also won the
freestyle in 1:54.69. She the

INCREASED FUND RAISING A POSSIBILITY:

'M' faces fuzzy

financial future

(Continued from Page 1)
"In the future it's going to be very
tough," Canham said. "You're going
to get to a point where you can't sell a
basketball or football ticket for more
than what you're selling."
CANHAM has formed special plan-
ning groups to discuss the problem.
"We had a study committee come in
for three days about a month ago to
study the situation," Canham said.

Tumblers improve to take third

By GREG MOLZON
The old saying suggests that beauty
is in the eye of the beholder, and
although a third place finish for the
Michigan men's gymnastics team
this past weekend can't be considered
beautiful, head coach Bob Darden
was pleased with his team's im-
provement in the home opener.
"I was real impressed with the
guys' performance," said Darden.
Some people may wonder how a
coach can be happy after coming in
third behind Big Ten rivals Minnesota
and Illinois, but the Wolverines ac-
complished Darden's goals by im-
provingtheir total score by ten points,
from last week's 244.45 in the Spartan
Invitational to this week's 255.35.
Darden attributed the im-
provement to better practices last
week. "It was a considerable im-
provement over the prior week due to
a much more directed effort in
workouts."
The Michigan team was paced by
Mitch Rose who placed third on the
high bar and still rings and second on
tthe parallel bars.
Scott Moore was also impressive as
he tied for first on the floor exercise,
and he was followed closely by Greg
Nelson who finished third in the same
event.
Rounding out the top Wolverine
terformance was a third place finish
in the vault for Brock Orwig.
The team will attempt to continue
its improvement this weekend in a
meet at Ohio State, but it will be quite
a challenge since the Buckeyes are
the defending Big Ten and national
champions.
Tisdale and
Pacers zip
by Pistons
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Wayman
Tisdale scored 29 points, including 11
in the third quarter, as the Indiana
Pacers beat the Detroit Pistons 105-99
to end an eight-game NBA losing
streak last night.
Tisdale also grabbed 15 rebounds as
the Pacers beat Detroit for the first
time in 10 outings. Steve Stipanovich
also had 15 rebounds as Indiana
outrebounded the Pistons 59-38.
THE PACERS' biggest lead was 81-
63 on a three-point play by Tisdale
with 2:53 left in the third period.
Detroit cut it to 87-82 on a Vinnie
Johnson layup with 8:54 in the fourth.
The Pacers then ran off a 9-2 spurt in
the next 3% minutes to make it 96-84
on a three-point play by Vern Fleming
with 5:31 to play.
An Isiah Thomas layup made it 102-
99 with 34 seconds left, but two free
throws by Clint Richardson and one
by Clark Kellogg iced the win for In-
diana.
Fleming and Richardson finished
with 18 points each for the Pacers and
Kellogg had 14.

Women tumblers stumble
The Wolverine women opened their
Big Ten gymnastics season Saturday
against Illinois, a fact they'd probably
like to forget. Not only did they lose
the meet, 175.30-174.75, but they lost
their top performer, Angela Williams,
as well.
During her floor exercise routine,
Williams suddenly pulled up short
with a pain in her shoulder. The same
thing happened a week before in a
meet against Western Michigan, but
this time it was more serious. She is
expected to miss at least two weeks.
"We can't play around with an in-
jury such as this one," said coach
Dana Kempthorn.
The one bright spot for Michigan
was the performance of freshman
Janne Klepek, who finished second
all-around with a 35.60.
"She did really well considering she
was coming off an ankle injury," said

Kempthorn. "I was pleased with her
determination."
Included in her performance was a
9.1 on the floor exercise, good for third
place. "When Janne gets on the floor,
she really knows how to sell her per-
formance and know how to play up to
the crowd," Kempthorn said.
Klepek also placed second on both
the uneven bars and the balance
beam.
Junior Heidi Cohen finished third on
the balance beam with 9.1. "Heidi
came through as a real performer,"
said Kempthorn. "She was more
relaxed and confident with her
routines."
"The team kept together, but there
were a few distractions that broke
some of the gymnasts' concen-
tration," said Kempthorn, summing
up. "The all-arounders came through
for us and the team seemed to balance
off each other."
-By DOUGLAS VOLAN

representative at Wisconsin, and
Fred Gruniger, the athletic director
at Rutgers, came in as a team to
figure out a direction that will keep us
solid. In addition to that I'm appoin-
ting long-range planning committees
- one on finances and the other on
policy - to determine what the heck
we're going to do in the next 10
years."
Options are limited.
"THERE'S only so much you can
do," Canham continued. "Are you
going to have club sports 10 years
from now? That would save you a ton.
Do you drop certain sports? Are you
going to drop assistant coaches and
use more part-time coaches? Are you
going out and have a massive fund-
raising campaign?
"We can raise fund-raising to an
extent. We now raise about a million
dollars a year for scholarships for
men and women. We probably can get
more, but I'm not sure how much
more."
Actually, Canham could probably
get a great deal more. Ohio State, wh-
ich recently started an all-out fund-
raising program to offset its own
economic problems, raised $2.15
million last year. And according to its
athletic director, Rick Bay, Ohio State
has the potential to raise even more
funds once it gets experienced. Clem-
son, North Carolina and South
Carolina, which have relied heavily
on fund-raising for years, raise $5
million to $6 million a year, and as
Bay said, "If they can do it, there's no
reason we can't."
BAY SAID Michigan probably could
do just as well in fund-raising as Ohio

'Anytime you ask
someone for money ... .
you feel somewhat
owing *to them. Fund-
raising comes last.'
- OSU Athletic
Director Rick Bay

State.
"Michigan has a great alumni body
and a great athletic program," he
said. "They probably would be very
effective in raising funds."
Bay, however, said athletic depar-
tments only like to use heavy fund-
raising as a last resort.
"ANYTIME you ask someone for
money, you feel they have a greater

the University's fund raising drive
Campaign for Michigan, said that
project may aid the athletic depar-
tment in the future.
"If the offices of the University said
to us that part of our goals' objectives
ought to be raising money on behalf of
the athletic department, then cer-
tainly we would do it," Muir said.
"We have two years to go in our

say in what you do," he said. "You feel
somewhat owing to them. Fund-
raising comes last."
The University would seem to be
another source of revenue for the
Michigan Athletic Department. But
Canham feels the University will be
reluctant to aid the department, even
though every other major athletic
department in the country receives
some kind of financial assistance.
"The University's got a financial
crunch," Canham said. "I wouldn't
hesitate to take (the money), but I
don't think they're going to give it to
us."
HOWEVER, Roy Muir, director of

campaign and there has not been any
change in our present goals. But there
have been discussions about im-
proving the swimming pool facilities
and possible fund-raising on behalf of
the football 'program. And I per-
sonally wouldn't be too surprised if
some amount of post-campaign effort
is directed in that way."
Whether they receive money from
grants and fund-raisers, or cut back
on their programs, Canham and the
athletic department will have to make
some significant changes. The
economy won't allow Michigan
athletics to stay the same.
