Swimmers deluge Iowa

r What was cracked up to be the most
exciting Big Ten dual meet of the
season turned out to be a big dren-
ching, as the Michigan men's swim
team crushed 12th-ranked Iowa, 75-38
Friday night at Matt Mann Pool.
Michigan head coach Jon Urban-
chek thought the meet between the
two undefeated conference squads
would be "equally matched," but
Michigan began with a bang and
never let up.
"WE EXPECTED it to be a lot
closer," said Urbancheck. "But we
won the first three events and after
that they didn't get enough momen-
tum to come back."
Although the Hawkeyes came up
short on talent, they pulled a few stun-
ts in an attempt to psyche themselves
up for the individual races. As the
meet was getting underway, the Iowa
swimmers suddenly burst out singing
a round of "Old MacDonald" and
various other nursery rhymes. They
also painted numbers on their backs,
so fans could identify them, and gave
each Hawkeye a hearty round of ap-
plause whether he won or not.
"Iowa is known for a little psyching
up," said Urbanchek. "It didn't work
though. I didn't even notice those
numbers until someone pointed them
out to me."
THE HAWKEYES' efforts didn't
pay off as Michigan took eight of 16

events and finished first in many of
the races.
Bill Kopas, Marc Parrish, and Lee
Michaud all had two wins apiece for
the Wolverines. Kopas won both the
500-yard freestyle and the 1000-yard
freestyle, while teammate Parrish
took the 200-yard breastroke and the
200-yard individual medley relay. Lee
Michaud, Michigan's only diver,
swept both the one- and three-meter
diving events.
Dave Kerska had a victory in the
100-yard freestyle and then teamed
with Joe Parker, Gary Antonick and
Greg Varner to capture the team vic-
tory with a win in the final relay, the
400-yard relay.
URBANCHEK said'that aside from
diver Lee Michaud, freshman
Alevizuri Alrjandro was the meet's
"biggest surprise," winning the 200-
yard backstroke.
Urbanchek feels even more vic-
torious because Michigan lost no time
in training in the big win.
"The win was pretty good because
we've continued training to total
mileage," Urbanchek said. "Whereas
Iowa, between traveling here and to
Michigan State, they've lost almost a
week of training."
AND THAT training is becoming
more important as the Big Ten
Championships round the corner.
"They (the Hawkeyes) have very
good sprinters," Urbanchek said.
"They're still going to be a very

powerful force at the Big Tens."
While the men were battling Iowa in
Ann Arbor, the Michigan women's
swim team took their talent on the
road to Wisconsin and continued their
winning ways by sinking the Badgers
"EVERYONE swam solidly," said
Michigan head coach Jim Richar-
dson. "We had fun!"
Susie Rabia led the Wolverines
with two individual wins in the 100-
yard freestyle and the 500-yard
freestyle. Rabia also set a personal
lifetime best record for the 500-free
with a time of 5:03.12.
Cecilia Sheehan, Christi Vedejs,
Lisa Lundsford, and Becky Fensen
combined their efforts together for a
win in the 400-yard medley relay while
diver Bonnie Pankopf took both the
one- and three-meter diving events.
Like the men, the women are set-
ting their sights on the conference
championships next month and ac-
cording to Richardson, they will con-
tinue to "train right through" at full
pace until then.

Five wins in six singles matches
gave the women's tennis team a win
over Ohio State in Columbus Satur-
day. Another win in doubles play
gave Michigan a 6-3 triumph and their
first win in two Big Ten matches.
The first four singles players, senior
Paula Reichert, sophomores Tina
Basle and Leslie Mackey, and junior
Tricia Horn, all registered straight-
set wins. Monica Borcherts, playing
sixth singles, notched a 5-7, 7-6, 6-4 win.
to finish off the Buckeyes.
MICHIGAN opened the meet with
the double victory from the team of
Reichart and Basle. Although the two
other doubles teams lost, coach Bitsy
Ritt felt good about her team's chan-
ces entering the singles competition.
"We had the same match-ups in the
one, two and four spots as last year,
Berry leads
St. John's
over Hoyas
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Walter
Berry scored 14 of his game-high 22
points in the second half as 10th-
ranked St. John's overtook number-11
Georgetown with a 60-58 Big East Con-
ference victory last night.
In snapping the Hoyas' eight-game
winning streak, the Redmen raised
their record to 23-3 and 10-2 in the Big
East, second only to Syracuse, 9-1.
Georgetown fell to 19-4, 9-3.
THE 6-FOOT-8 Berry, showing no
effects of an ankle injury that forced
him out of last Saturday's game with
Boston College, also grabbed eight
rebounds, all in the first half. Ron
Rowan added 17 points for the Red-
St. John's, which beat Georgetown
in an earlier meeting this season,
trailed by as many as eight points in
the first half but closed within 30-26 at
halftime. But Berry, operating again-
st a collapsing defense, started the
Redmen rolling and they opened a 42-
37 advantage on Rowan's jumper with
12:23 remaining.
During one stretch, St. John's
missed three 1-and-1 free-throw
situations, and baskets by
Georgetown's David Wingate and
.Reggie Williams cut the margin to 50-
49 with 7:14 remaining. Three more
times the Hoyas reduced the lead to
one point but they could never over-
take the Redmen.
Georgetown's Johnathan Edwards
hit one of two free throws to make it
58-56 with 1:21 remaining. After
Shelton Jones of St. John's was called
for a charging foul with 45 seconds to
go, Mark Jackson stole the ball from
Wingate. Jones made one of two free
Sthrows and Michael Jackson cut it to
59-58 with three seconds remaining
with a layup. But Jones again was
fouled and made the first of two free
throws for the final margin.
Wingate topped the Hoyas with 18
points and Williams added 16 points.
Ralph Dalton, Georgetown's 6-11 cen-
ter, fouled out with 5:50 remaining.
It was St. John's fourth straight vic-
tory at the Capital Centre, which drew
a crowd of 16,093.

and we were successful in those mat-
ches," said Ritt. "I was confident we
could win four of the six singles mat-
ches, then we wound up winning five."
Reichert started things off in singles
with 6-2, 6-4 win over OSU's nuber one
player, Kris Colglazier. Basle then
downed Yvonne Lohrer, 6-3, 6-2, while
Mackey knocked off Michelle
Decosemo, 6-3, 6-1. Horne posted the
Wolverines' fourth straight win,
downing Kristin Peterson, 6-2, 6-1,
securing the match victory.
Erin Ashare gave the Buckeyes'
Michelle Chevront a good battle
before falling, 5-7, 7-5, 6-1.

Question: What does Penn State have in common with
Lehigh, Clarion State, and Iowa State? Answer: It is yet
another top ten wrestling team that has toppled the
Wolverines this season.
The fourth-ranked Nittany Lions (12-2-1) handed
Michigan its third straight loss Saturday at Penn State, 32-
12. The loss dropped the Wolverines to 6-5 on the season, 5-
1 in the Big Ten.
BY THE TIME Michigan won its first match, it was
already down, 29-0. Only wins by Steve Richards (167
pounds), Scott Rechsteiner (190), and Kirk Trost
(heavyweight) kept the meet respectable.
"We normally start off winning at least one, if not two of
the first two matches," said Michigan head coach Dale.
Bahr, "but this time we fell behind early and had to play
"After we fell behind, 12-0, I thought our team lost some
of its composure."
AMIDST THE Wolverines recent road woes, Richards
has continued to shine. His 14-7 win over Eric Burgeul left
him unbeaten since Christmas. "He just took advantage
of every opportunity to score," noted Bahr.

"Steve has been doing a great job," Bahr added. "He is
not concerned about his opponent-he just goes out there
and wrestles. He works hard in practice, and he is a greaL
The eighth-year coach also praised Trost for his drubbing
of John Place, 12-5. "He looked great," said Bahr. "He ad-
justed very well and came close to winning a major
(eight-point) decision over a very solid opponent."
RECHSTEINER was the only Wolverine to win by a
fall, pinning Jan Johnson at 2:58.
Michigan's loss on Saturday concluded a road trip
which saw them go 1-3. The Wolverines have managed
only one win on the road this season.
Part of Michigan's troubles must be attributed to its
tough schedule. "We aren't taking on any slouches," ex-
plained Bahr, "but there's no question we need to get back
on the winning track."
One positive note, however, has come from the
Wolverines' difficult competition. There will be no sur-
prises when the Big Ten and NCAA Championships start.
"We've met almost all of the good kids in the country,"
said Bahr, "so we know exactly how they wrestle, and our
kids know what they have to do to win."
