Mchigan's senior icers...
... Must provide leadership
For the first time in their Wolverine careers, the seniors on the
Michigan hockey team have a chance to advance beyond the first round
of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs, and possibly
win the post-season tournament held at Joe Louis Arena.
And it's all in their hands. As the last two weekends have shown,
the Wolverines just can't win without their seniors.
After captain Todd Brost went down with a knee injury early in the
first period of Friday's game against Western Michigan, the
Wolverines were visibly shaken, and lost the game, 4-3.
FACING the possibility of being knocked out of third place by
the stampeding Broncos the next night, senior assistant-captains Joe
Lockwood and Brad McCaughey answered the cries for help.
Lockwood bucked the Broncos with a first-period goal, and
McCaughey lassoed them with three more.
"We don't have a whole lot of games left in a Michigan uniform,
so we're going to go out and give it our all every game," said
Lockwood. "Hopefully, that will inspire the team."
In the Wolverines' sweep of arch-rival Michigan State two
weekends ago, the seniors scored seven of the Wolverines' 11 goals,
including both game-winners, and 13 of the team's 21 points.
INSTRUMENTAL in those victories were seniors Billy Powers,
Sean Baker, and Gary Lorden. Each scored points in the crucial series
"We're all realizing that our careers are coming to an end," said
Powers. "We're ready to go every weekend and we're going to try and
get the underclassmen going with us."
Brost, who is often described as "the heart of the team," by coach
Red Berenson, will probably miss the rest of the regular season with
ligament damage to his knee. With Brost's leadership abilities lost,
more than ever before, the seniors will have to lead their young
teammates, who are mostly underclassmen.
"Everyone feels the pressure, especially the seniors," said
McCaughey. "We just lost our captain, so we're going to have to pick
it up for him."
"(Brost) is the biggest guy on the the team," said Powers. "He
does everything and we're going to have to dig deeper as individuals to
THE INJURY to Brost is indeed unfortunate, as for the first time
all season the Wolverines were healthy, and the team was just starting
to gel. McCaughey, Lockwood, and Powers had all been injured, and
were just getting back into the swing of things when Brost suffered
his potential season-ending injury.
With upcoming series against league-leading Lake Superior State
and Bowling Green, which trails Michigan by just two points in the
standings, the Wolverines will definitely miss Brost.
After four years, the seniors finally are in control of their own
destinies. They hold the key to the Wolverines' future.

Michigan's Jennifer Eck led an
impressive display of power Satur-
day, as the Women's swim team
sank Indiana, 76-62. The Wolver-
ines built a 76-39 lead before com-
pleting the meet with exhibition
Eck, in addition to winning two
individual events, was also a mem-
ber of the victorious 4 x 100 med-
ECK, a sophomore, led wire-
to-wire in her specialty, the 50-yard
freestyle, with a strong 24.70 time.
She then displayed her versatility
by pulling away from the field in
the 200-meter breaststroke, and
winning the event in 2:23.88, her
best time ever.
"I do not have a lot of experi-
ence swimming the 200 breast,"
said Eck. "I was just concentrating
on my own race, in the hope that I
could make the NCAA cuts.
"Compared to last season, I've
been focusing more on the breast-
stroke events this season. The 200
is a new challenge to me because
I've always been considered a
Women's coach Jim Richardson
and men's coach Jon Urbanchek
have altered Eck's breaststroke this
year, and the work is paying divi-
dends. Besides her accomplishments
in the 50-meter freestyle, Eck also
possesses the team's second fastest
100-meter free time, and has quali-
fied for the NCAA Championships
and Olympic Trials with an out-
standing 1:04.85 in the 100-meter
IN ADDITION to Eck,
Richardson's 6-0 squad was
propelled by All-American diver
Mary Fischbach, competing in her
last home dual meet as a
Wolverine. She went out in style,
capturing both the 1-meter and 3-
meter events. Fischbach, who
finished second last season at the
NCAA Championships, and has
represented the United States in
numerous meets, already has sur-
passed the NCAA qualifying stan-
dards for both boards.
Freestyler Susie Rabiah also
turned in a strong performance. Her
times in the 100-meter (51.63),
200-meter (1:53.25), and 500-meter
(5:05.11), were all winners, and
place her high among the race fa-
vorites when the women travel to
the Big Ten Championships in In-
dianapolis in two weeks.
Michigan, the defending confer-
ence champion, will be challenged
by Ohio State, Northwestern, and
Minnesota in the upcoming tour-
Men top Cyclones
The men's swimming team
maintained its four-year dual meet
win streak last weekend, defeating
the eleventh ranked Iowa Hawkeyes,
74-39, at Matt Mann pool.
According to coach Jon Ur-
banchek, Iowa represented the last
team which had a chance to defeat
Michigan in a dual meet.
Urbanchek was not surprised by the
outcome. "The last two or three
times Iowa has come here, they've
folded. They hate Matt Mann pool.
They'll be glad when it closes,"
said Urbanchek, who has yet to lose
a home meet in his seven-year
tenure as head coach at Michigan.
Mais Nygren set the tone for the
meet with a pool record time of
9:16.67 in the 1000-yard freestyle.
Nygren also finished first in the
500-yard freestyle, beating the sec-
ond-place finisher by over four sec-
Mike Barrowman won the 200-
yard individual medley by holding
off three-time Big Ten swimmer of
the year John Davey on the final
leg. Davey is the defending confer-
ence champion in that event.
Alex Alvizuri set a pool record,
and qualified for the NCAA's, by
winning the 200-yard backstroke.
Alvizuri has been swimming in-
creasingly well lately, which should
help to plug a hole caused by the
absence of Mike Creaser.
CREASER, winner of the 100
and 200-yard backstroke at last
tankers dunk rivals
year's Big Ten meet, is currently
plagued by an upper respiratory
infection which could keep him
from being competitive at the Big
Alvizuri, whose training was
put behind schedule last year by a
broken arm, could even replace
Creaser as Big Ten champ in the
backstroke events. Last year,
Alvizuri was fifth in the 100 and
second in the 200-yard backstroke.
"I really want to improve m y
times in Big Ten's. I hope that if I
can make my times, they'll be good
enough to win," said Alvizuri.
Michigan will close out its
home schedule this weekend against
Michigan State and Indiana.
