The women's swim team will
face one of its toughest challenges
of the year tomorrow at 2:00 p.m.
as Big Ten rivals Indiana and
Wisconsin visit Matt Mann Pool
for a tri-meet.
Before learning that four of the
Wolverines' top swimmers are
questionable for tomorrow's meet
due to injuries and illness,
Wisconsin head coach Carl
Johansson wasn't optimistic;.
"We couldn't beat Michigan
with a stick," Johansson said. "Our
strengths lie in the same events as
Michigan's but they're just a little
better in those events."
Michigan will be hurt most in
the distance freestyles with the
losses of Stacy Fruth and NCAA
qualifier Gwen DeMaat.
"We're going to keep our line-up
the same but we won't be as
dominant in our strong events as
we had hoped," said Michigan head
coach Jim Richardson.
"This is a chance for our other

Christi Vedejs, Candice Quinn,
and Ann Colloton have helped
Michigan dominate the 100- and
200-yard breaststrokes. Vedejs, last
year's Big Ten champion in both
races, will be faced by the Badgers'
Amy Justesen, Big Ten champion
of two years ago.

Tomorrow's game at the UW
Fieldhouse in Madison is crucial
not because the Badgers are a tough
team, but for the opposite reason.
Wisconsin (10-10 overall, 0-7 in
the Big Ten) is struggling. In a
conference that houses four of the
nation's top ten teams (Iowa,
Purdue, Indiana, and Illinois), the
Wolverines (12-6, 3-3) cannot
afford to lose to the Wisconsins and
After Michigan's win over
Syracuse last Sunday, Michigan
coach Bill Frieder stressed the
importance of sweeping
Northwestern (which the
Wolverines downed 87-73
Wednesday) and Wisconsin.
"If we could win those two on
the road, then (the Syracuse) victory
becomes a very important victory
because of the possible NCAA
(tournament) berth," Frieder said.

home with a positive attitude -
well, as positive as possible for a
team in the throes of an eight-game
"We've got the toughest part of
our schedule out of the way," said
