Men tankers:

Big

Ten champs

By CHRIS GORDILLO
'It's one thing to win a
championship. It's another thing to
defend it. Just ask the Los Angeles
Lakers, or the Chicago Bears.
This past weekend in
Indianapolis, the men's swimming
and diving team made the task look
easy, successfully defending their
Big Ten Championship title,
finishing 170 points ahead of
second-place Iowa.
Heavily favored Michigan didn't
foresee an easy defense of its crown.
"The whole year went pretty good.
(We didn't expect to win) this
Seasily," said head coach Jon
Urbanchek. The impressive
Wolverine victory earned Urbanchek
Big Ten Coach of the Year honors.
"The other coaches are doing a
good job. Maybe I've been more
fortunate to have all of these
athletes," said a modest Urbanchek.
-L E A DIN G the rout for the
Wolverines was senior co-captain
Dave Kerska. Along with Iowa's
John Davey, Kerska was named Co-
Big Ten Swimmer of the Year for
winning five Big Ten titles-
including two individuals- and
contributing to three meet and
conference record-breaking relays.
Michigan started the meet
'slowly, finishing the first day of
competition only eight points ahead
of Iowa. But the team's
,performance crescendoed on Friday
when the Wolverines won five out
,of the six events swam that day.
The peak of the meet for the
:Wolverines came with a1-2-3.
finish in the 200-yard freestyle on
Friday with Kerska, senior co-
captain Joe Parker, and freshman
Brent Lang making up the

triumvirate. When the race was
over, only .12 seconds separated the
three Wolverines. Times of
1:36.78, 1:36.81, and 1:36.90
earned all three qualifying positions
for the NCAA Championships to
be held April.
"I expected them to win 1-2-3,"
said Urbanchek. "I had the most
confidence in those people (Kerska,
Parker, Lang)."
ALTHOUGH not as dramatic,
the trio made a repeat performance
in the 100-yard freestyle on
Saturday, finishing in the same
order, with Kerska's time of 43.99
leading the field. Both Kerska's and
Parker's times qualify them for the
NCAAs.
Kerska, Parker, and Lang helped

the 800-yard free relay and 400 free
relay win Big Ten championships
and set all-time Big Ten records
with times of 6:30.00 and 2:56.40
respectively. Sophomore Bjoern
Warland joined the 800 free relay
team and junior Mike Creaser
completed the 400 free relay.
Creaser, along with junior Jan-
Erick Olsen and sophomore Marty
Moran embodied the Wolverines'
dominance of the meet by winning
both the 100- and200-yard events
in the backstroke, breaststroke, and
butterfly, respectively.
Creaser made the NCAA cut by
winning his 200-yard back race in
1:49.20, beating teammate Alex
Alvizuri by .2 seconds. He won the
100-yard back in a close race with
Wisconsin's Tom Senn, who

touched only .1 behind him.
OLSEN LED Michigan in"
individual records with all-time Big
Ten records in the 100-yard and
200-yard breast with times of 54.77
and 1:59.58. His victory in the 200
was Olsen's third consecutive Big
Ten title in that event. Olsen added
another record to his name by
swimming on the record-breaking
400-yard medley relay with Lang,
Creaser, and Kerska.
Moran's swim of 1:45.64 in the
200-yard fly, setting a new meet
and Big Ten record, highlighted his
sweep of the fly events. He won the
100-yard fly in 49.00, touching out
Indiana's Bill Mathews. His times
in both events also earned Moran a
spot in the NCAAs.
Sophomore Mats Nygren will

also be in Austin, Texas, for the
NCAAs in April as a result of his
fourth-place swim of 15:18.53 in
the 1,650-yard free. Nygren's time
also set a new school record, held
previously by sophomore Bill
Kopas.
Under the coaching of Dick
Kimball, the divers also enjoyed an
exceptional weekend for the
Michigan team. Sophomore Lee
Michaud finished third in the one-
meter diving and fifth in the three-
meter event. Freshman Bill Hayes
captured fourth in the three-meter.
