The Michigan Daily
Softball team sweeps
Tarters in home opener
BY PETER ZELLEN
The Michigan softball team played its first home game in the bitter cold of
an Ann Arbor spring, but the two victories the Wolverines produced
certainly provided some warmth.
The Wolverines beat Wayne State, 6-0 and 2-0, in the doubleheader with
some great pitching and timely hitting.
"We played hard all the time in both games," coach Carol Hutchins said.
"We we're intense, but you know, it's just cold out there."
In the first game, sophomore Andrea Nelson gave up three hits and no runs
in four innings to notch her 15th victory of the season. Rookie Julie Foster
worked the final innings, giving up no hits, to register her first save.
Outfielder Beth Mueller provided the fire power, going 3-for-4 with a
double as Michigan amassed 11.
The second game was the closer of the two. In it, junior Jenny Allard held
the Tartars to one hit in the game.
The Wolverines, however, could only manage two hits themselves.
In the third inning, third baseman Bridget Fitzgerald led off with a walk and
then advanced as Shelly Bawol reached on an error. Shortstop Bonnie Tholl
then singled to load the bases with no one out. Julie Cooper flied to center
but couldn't score Kelly O'Connor, who pinch-ran for Fitzgerald.
Mueller then lofted the ball deep enough into foul territory to score
O'Connor and the Wolverines took the lead 1-0. They scored again in the
sixth to make it 2-0.

NCAAs: swimmers
aim to float to the top
BY JODI LEICHTMAN
When the Wolverine's dive into action today at the three-day men's
swimming and diving NCAA Championship meet in Indianapolis, they
may be setting some of the fastest field times in history.
"This is going to be the fastest NCAAs in history in at least five or
six of the events," sophomore Mike Barrowman said. According to
Michigan head coach Jon Urbanchek, the team has had a chance to regroup
and rethink its goals since its last competition in the Big Ten
Championships on March 2-5. The 14 Michigan qualifiers have been
following a practice schedule that should have them peaking at the
NCAAs.
Urbanchek believes that Brent Lang, Barrowman, Eric Wunderlich, and
Scott Ryan definitely have a good shot to place high as individuals.
The performance level of Eric Namesnik, who has recently recovered
from a bout with mononucleousis, is still up in the air.
No. 1 ranked Texas is the meet favorite, while USC, Stanford, Cal-
Berkley, Florida, and Michigan should also battle for the top five.
"Texas is probably as good or even better than they were last year,"
Barrowman said, "but I think we match up as evenly as anyone else in the
country does with them."
Lee Michaud and Bill Hayes will be representing the Wolverines in the
one-meter and three-meter spring board, and the 10-meter platform diving
g events. Michaud and Hayes qualified for nationals by first performing well

6 Barber-stylists
For Men & Women
-Collegiate Styles
a specialty-
Dascola Stylists
opposite Jacobson's, 668-9329

BY JEFF SHERAN
The Dodgers surprised everyone
when they captured the World Series
last year, but that won't happen
again this year. Here's how the
National League West standings will
look in October.
-San Diego: The Padres boast by
far the best catching in baseball with
NLWEST
Benito Santiago, the most sought-
after player in either league, and
runner-up Sandy Alomar Jr. behind
the plate. They'll be staring up the
mound at mammoth acquisition
Bruce Hurst, who hails from the AL
East along with solid righty Walt
Terrell. Dennis Rasmussen, an ex-
AL Easterner himself, combines with
Hurst for the premier southpaw tan-
dein in the division.
But GM Jack McKeon hadn't
enjoyed enough AL East ravaging,
because he then snagged Jack Clark.

He and perrenial batting champ Tony
Gwynn will put some frightening
numbers on the scoreboard.
The team's only weakness is a
solid third baseman. Hey McKeon, I
hear Wade Boggs is on the trading
block...
-Los Angeles: It's tough to
contend with Orel Hershiser. A hefty
contract will keep last year's Cy
Young winner shutting down
opposing batters with a smile on his
face. Tommy Lasorda will be
smiling too, not just at his pasta,
but also at the best pitching staff in
the division.
Except for MVP Kirk Gibson, the
Dodgers severely lack punch. More-
over, Steve Sax's speed ran away to
New York, and Willie Randolph
can't replace that element of Sax's
play. The lineup screams for more
power. Eddie Murray, step in. He is
the reason the Dodgers are a better
team then last year, but the Padres
are the reason LA won't repeat.

-Cincinnati: The Reds have a
tremendous knack for taking great
talent and combining it into a first-
rate second-place team. This season,
Pete Rose's best bet is the Reds to
show. The Reds sport a fearsome
pitching staff, but so do the Dodgers
and the Padres. Eric Davis talks a
great game, but last season he proved
.his mouth was quicker than his bat.
-San Francisco: Ever watch a
ball game in Candlestick Park? The
weather is horrendous, and this sea-
son, so will be the baseball. If it
weren't for the Astros and Atlanta,
Frisco would be further from the top
than an ant at the foot of Mt.
Everest.
-Houston: Aside from Glenn
Davis, starting pitcher Rick Rhoden
is the Astros' only power hitter. The
only way to win without hitting is
with great pitching, something the
Astros just don't have enough of.
-Atlanta: Look for the Braves to
be mathematically eliminated by
April 23.
