BY ERIC LEMONT
Don't be too concerned. True, the
Michigan's women's swimmingz
team finished sixth in the top 10-
filled Longhorn Invitational last
weekend. And yes, there were only
six teams. But the Wolverines went
into the tournament minus their
diving team.
"You can't really compare our
scores because all the other teams
had their divers. It probably cost us
between 100 and 150 points," head
coach Jim Richardson said.
The divers stayed home while
diving head coach Dick Kimball
attended the criminal trial of his son,
Bruce.
Michigan's 385 points placed
them behind Texas (731.5),
Tennessee (588.5), Cal-Berkeley
(567), Georgia (564), and South
Carolina (412).
The biggest bright spot for the
Wolverines was Ann Colloton.
Colloton's time of 1 minute 4.69
seconds was good enough to beat out
Tennessee All-American Tracy
Ignatowsky (1:04.97) in the 100-
yard breaststroke. Colloton also won
the 200 breaststroke in 2:18.80.
"I'm really glad," Colloton said.
"Some of the best breaststrokers in

rested, others were

the country were there."
Colloton, who lost to
Ignatowsky at the Michigan
Invitational, said the extra month of
training helped her shave the .06

take
ce 6th
seconds off her time. She added that
the team's recent training regimen
might have left it a little fatigued.
"Some of the teams were rested,
others were partially rested, and we
weren't rested at all," Colloton said.
She explained that the Wolverines'
schedule has them aiming for NCAA
qualifying times at other meets -
the Michigan Invitational and the
Big Ten championships.
Michigan's only other top three
finishes were a second-place time of
7:24.87 in the 800 relay and Gwen
Demaat's second-place finish in the
500 freestyle. DeMaat qualified for
the NCAA championships with a
time of 4:49.5 3.
Richardson explanation for the
Wolverines' dearth of high finishes
was simple. "We simply don't have
the depth or quality across the board
as most of these teams have," he
said.
The Wolverines' performance
satisfied their coach. Richardson said
that the purpose of the meet was not
to win, but to see which swimmers
have the desire to compete against
top-flight national competition.
With the Big Ten and NCAA
championships yet to come,
Richardson will soon find out.

BY STEVEN GINNS
The fact that classes were
cancelled Monday didn't prevent
approximately 75 students from
attending a discussion sponsored by
the Physical Education Department
on "Combating the Stereotypes of
the Black Athlete," as part of
Diversity Day.
George Hoey, an academic advisor
to the athletic department, led the
discussion, which included former
Philadelphia Eagle and Wolverine
Randy Logan. Football players
David Key and Jarrod Bunch,
women's basketball team captain
Tempie Brown, and track team
captain Claude Tiller also
participated in the panel discussion.
The discussion first focused on
the athlete stereotype in general.
"I didn't want to be known as an
ignorant or dumb person, which can
happen automatically when you are
an athlete," said Logan, who is now
employed by Electronic Data
Systems. "As a person, I wanted to
show my abilities on and off the 0*
field."

Tiller said choosing to major in
physical education does not provide a
free ride to graduation. "A friend of
mine asked me why I'm majoring in @
physical education. I asked her why
is she in the Business School,"
Tiller said. "She told me to earn a
degree, make money, and become
successful, and that's the same
reason I am in the Physical
Education Department. We have the
same aspirations."
Bunch, who had considered
switching away from his major in@
physical education, added, "Many
people don't realize the opportunities
available in P.E."
The panel also focused on the
Black athlete stereotype, contending
that Black athletes have no natural
ability that allows them instant
success on the playing field.
"I would like to play in the NFL,
but it's a lot of work," Bunch said.
The panel went on to discuss the
recent controversial change it
Proposition 48, which will prevent
athletes who fail to obtain a 700 on
their SAT from receiving financial
aid. The panel was unanimous in
criticizing the new proposal.
"Tests like the SAT have been
shown to be culturally biased, and
therefore it is unfair," Key said.
Tiller added: "How can you judge
from one test if a person is qualified
for college? I think it's stupid and
should be thrown out."
