'M' SWIMMERS SWEEP FOES
Womentankers scalp Hurons
By CHRISTIAN M. MARTIN
The women's swim team traveled
all the way to Ypsilanti this weekend
to beat' Eastern Michigan, 92-46. The
meet, which served mostly as a tune-
up and chance to swim new events,
was as one sided as the score in-
The Wolverines were led by swim-
ming phenom Susie Rabiah who used
the Hurons' pool as if it were her own
playground. She combined on four
victories for the Wolverines, three of
them individual triumphs in the 100-
yard backstroke, 50 freestyle and 200
individual medley. The fourth came in
the 200 medley relay, in which she
combined with Candice Quinn, Christi
Vedejs and Cecillia Sheenan.
"SUSIE RABIAH is a very solid
swimmer. She's very versatile," said
Eastern Michigan coach Mary Ellen
Olsece. "Her times would be real
competitive in our league (MAC)."
The outmatched Hurons (0-8)
avoided head to head competition
with the Wolverines.
"It was the type of meet we knew
Michigan would be very strong in,"
Olsece said. "Being competitive with
them is not within our ability."
Instead the Hurons tried to swim
through the Wolverines (11-6-1, 4-3 Big

Ten) in preparation for their MAC
league championships in two weeks.
Jim Richardson's troops used the
same tactic in their dealings with the
Hurons. The Big Ten swimming
championships are just around the
corner starting February 27.
While the Wolverine swim team is
where Richardson expected it to be
this time of the season, he still has
doubts as to how the Wolverines will
fair in the championships.
Men sink Buckeyes
Although the swim team left its top
five men in Ann Arbor, the freshmen
seemed to steal the spotlight during
the Wolverine's 71-42 drowning of
Ohio State Saturday in Columbus.
"We didn't take our best team
down," said head coach Jon Urban-
chek. "This meet opened doors for the
younger swimmers, and gave them
the chance to get some good com-
"THIS GIVES the other swimmers
a chance to rest up and start tapering
for the Big Tens," Urbanchek, said.
Tapering is strategy usually used just
once a season. It allows swimmers to
cut back on their total training
mileage and prepare for an important
One of the freshmen who had the
opportunity to show his stuff against
the Buckeyes was Dan Dewhurst.
Dewhurst had wins in both the 100-
yard and 200-yard breaststroke events
with times of 59.52 and 2:12.11, respec-
"The walls (of Ohio State's pool)
are tricky," said Dewhurst. "They
don't have any gutters, so there's
nothing to grab onto when you turn. It
detracts from the speed, especially in
the 100 (breaststroke.)"
DEWHURST ALSO teamed with
Mike Creaser, Dave Goch and Joe
Parker to take the 400-yard freestyle
relay in 3:55.82. Freshman Bill Kopas
added a victory, in the 1,650-yard
freestyle with a time of 15:39.04.
Although this was an important vic-
tory for Michigan, the team has set its
sights on winning the conference
championships. Undefeated in dual
meets, ranled first in the Big Ten and
ranked in the top 20 in the nation, the
Wolverines have a good shot at the
"We're coming along according to
plan," Urbanchek said. "We're
shaping up and right now we're
looking to the Big Tens."
Sophomore Mike Creaser agreed,
"Right now we're looking good. Our
biggest competitors at Big Tens will
be Iowa and Indiana." Creaser said
he hopes the championships will once
again help him improve his time in
the 100-yard backstroke enough to
qualify for the NCAA Championships.
Dewhurst, however, said the team
comes first. "For the team tohwin at
Big Tens is our main goal," he said.
"For myself, to place in the top eight,
will be a goal."
The Wolverines take on Michigan
State this Saturday at Matt Mann

dianapolis and perhaps Michigan's
firstconference championship in 26
years. -DEBBIE de FRANCES
Falcon migrates ...

CCHA Transaction of the Week
Bowling Green - Traded sophomore defenseman Doug Claggett to
Ohio State for future considerations.
This past weekend Buckeye Doug Claggett appeared in Yost Ice Arena
for the second time this season. But in his first appearance against the
Wolverines, he was in a Falcon uniform.
While awkward, the scenerio was legal according to the NCAA transfer
rule, which allows a player to transfer and play for another school as long
as the institution he is leaving signs a waiver.
Since this situation is rarely encountered during the same season, the
circumstances surrounding the Claggett case are as peculiar as one
would expect. Both Claggett and Bowling Green coach Jerry York agreed
that the defenseman's dismissal was caused by training violations. Then
the story gets convoluted.
"I broke a training rule along with about seven other guys, and he
(York) picked me out as an example," said Claggett. "I wasn't too
pleased with it. Obviously, I picked Bowling Green because I wanted to
spend four years there."
"Doug was disciplined from our team because of an infraction of
training rules," said York. "Claggett was the only player that broke our
training rules. If there were more players (involved), more would have
Something may be rotten in the state of Ohio.
Nothing was rotten though for Claggett's new coach Jerry Welsh. The
Buckeye head man was more than happy to acquire a steady defen-
seman. "Doug is a good hockey
player," said Welsh. "He is a
great kid. I may be premature in
saying that. From what I can tell
and research, he is an ideal kid.
We have only great things to say,
about him thus far." k:
Coaches just don't dismiss
ideal kids, but York felt he had no *
choice. "We have certain
training rules. We take a hard
line approach. You can't have
rules unless you can enforce
them," said the 14-year head ?".
coach, now in his seventh season
at Bowling Green. "For us to say+'
'he broke a training rule, but h is Clagget
a good player. We are just going to look the other way this time' isn't the
way we work here."
Recently, the Falcons' defense hasn't been working well. Claggett's
presence has been missed, as Bowling Green's 6-8 record since his depar-
ture would attest. "We can't replace a Doug Claggett. He could really
help us," said York. "Maybe some of the defensive problems we have are
because Claggett isn't here."
If York suspended the defenseman for only disciplinary reasons, his ac-
tions were laudable. However, if others violated team policy, questions
arise from the decision.
The entire incident raises questions not only about the manner in which
Claggett was treated but also the transfer rule. "I think the waiver rule is
a good rule for some people," said Michigan team captain Frank
Downing. "If trades start occurring, then it is not good for the kids and
the school. Especially if something starts going bad, they (the student-
athlete) can say 'hey I want to go somewhere else' and they won't stick it
Hopefully, the Claggett ordeal won't be repeated. As of August 1 of this
year the NCAA is changing the waiver rule. Hockey players will have to
remain on the sidelines for a year when transferring.
In other hockey developments :
" Number one jinx? Since Bowling Green was rated the number one
team in the nation the week of January 6, the Falcons have lost eight of
their last twelve contests. Bowling Green split this weekend with CCHA
doormat Miami of Ohio to run its record to 1-7 in its last eight games.
Conversely, Michigan State, Western Michigan and Lake Superior are all
7-1 in the same span.
" Bowling Green's problems multiplied in the 7-6 overtime loss to
Miami Saturday. Workhorse goalie Gary Kruzich'sribs were bruised
when a Miami player knocked him into a goal post. X-rays were negative,
but he may be unable to play this weekend.
