Blue crew team looks to cruise
down Huron in Classic Regatta
By BETHANY KLIPEC
The Michigan crew team will celebrate its 12th year
of club status by hosting the 12th Anniversary Classic
Regatta tomorrow on the Huron River at Gallup Park,
from noon until approximately 3:00 p.m. The event
will feature competition between five area teams:
Michigan, Michigan State, Grand Valley State, the
Detroit Boat Club, and the Wyandotte Rowing Club.
A crew team is separated into four different divi-
sions: men's heavyweight, men's lightweight,
women's heavyweight and women's lightweight, each
of which compete at two levels, novice and varsity,
with the exception of the novice women. They only
compete at the heavyweight level.
EACH DIVISION and each level can race a four-
person shell, an eight-person shell or both, allowing
for the possibility of as many as 14 separate races in
any given regatta. Tomorrow's regatta will include 10-
12 of these 14 races.
Since this is the Wolverines' only home event of
the season, it is "an excellent opportunity to showcase
the Michigan team as well as the sport of crew to the
campus and to the Ann Arbor community," said club
president and women's varsity member, Regina Dodge.
Team treasurer Gina Cetnar adds that "it (the regatta)
traditionally generates a lot of interest in the club, be-
cause for many students it's their first glimpse at the
sport of crew."
Several weeks ago, the club travelled to Augusta,
Georgia to compete in the Augusta Invitational Regatta
which involved over thirty collegiate clubs from
throughout the South and the East. Michigan had a
very respectable showing against some top competi-
Highlights included a win by the novice men's light
eight, a second place finish by the varsity men's heavy
four, and a third by the novice women's (heavy) four.
LAST WEEK the team went to Marietta and won
the majority of the races against a varsity squad that
has often been one of the stronger crews at nationals.
Following this weekend's regatta, the team will
prepare for the season's two biggest events: the South-
ern Invitational Rowing Association's annual regatta in
Oak Ridge, Tenn., April 30th and the Dad Vails
Championship Regatta in Philadelphia, May 12-14.
The Dad Vails is a three-day event which will fea-
ture over 80 of the top collegiate teams in the country
and is the largest crew event held in North America.

Wolverine dugout because I love be-
ing around the fans. It's the specta-
tors that make watching a baseball
game something special.
Everyone in the stands was dressed
appropriately for the game and the
day's weather sunglasses, t-shirt, and
shorts. They're there to watch base-
ball and have a good time. Especially
the students. "It was fun and relax-
ing, but my ass hurts," says LSA
student Jai Nanda, referring to the
hard wooden benches.
"Nice weather, nice women, and
some great baseball action. What
more could you ask for?" asks Chan-
dler Simonds, another LSA student.
Ah, yes, those women. Yes folks,
these are the groupies. They are an
age-old sports tradition and part of
the fun that goes on in the stands at a
ballgame. But there are many other
types of fans.
IN THE stands behind the
Michigan dugout there are many el-
derly Ann Arbor residents cheering.
All adorned in their GO BLUE attire:
caps, coolers, and sweaters.
Along the railing of the grandstand
are the alumni. All dressed in their
suits and Michigan ties. You know,
the blue ones with all the little yel-
low Ms. You've got to love their
school support when they go to work
with that on.

are various Michigan athletes. The
football practice field is close by and
after practice many of the players
will stop by to check out teammates
Greg McMurtry and Mike Gillette.
The first game has just ended and
Michigan has emerged triumphant.
Eleven walks and a home run by Phil
Price helped do in the Hurons, 8-1.
I've wondered who those people
were who sat in the seats behind the
plate. A woman sitting there is
wearing a Michigan baseball sweat-
shirt. On the back I can read LATA
22 (pitcher Tim Lata.) I realize that
this is where all the Michigan Moms
and Dads sit.
THE LAST group are the anti-
fans of Fisher Stadium. They sit be-
hind the visitor's dugout and yell at
the Wolverines. "You ain't so good *
Price!" and "The boy can't pitch!" are
some of the rantings these people
shout at the Michigan players.
In the second game tragedy befalls
a woman in the bleachers. A foul
ball off the bat of an Eastern player
struck a woman in the mouth. She
was escorted to the hospital and we
can only hope she's OK. It's unfor-
tunate that the same high demand,
close seat at a baseball game cane
cause personal injury.
It's been a 2-2 tie for ever so long
and with one out in the seventh
Steve Finken hits a long fly ball and,
waitaminnit, that ball's outta here.
Michigan wins the game and sweeps
