Wrestlers set to
start dual season

Blue to
test the

-BY DAVID HYMAN
The fourth-ranked Michigan
wrestling team had a one-month
break between the Las Vegas Classic
(Dec. 2-3) and the Virginia Duals
last weekend, but starting today the
Wolverines have little time to rest.
Michigan coach Dale Bahr isn't
worried.
"Our kids are used to wrestling
back to back," Bahr said. "All year
we've been wrestling mostly two-
day tournaments, and for us to
wrestle four matches in three days is
really not a big deal."
MICHIGAN begins a full
weekend today. The Wolverines host
Northern Illinois and Morgan State
today at 1 p.m. The 1989 Big Ten
opener is Saturday at Michigan
State. Michigan returns home
Sunday against Lehigh.
The Wolverines will present a
lineup change this weekend due to
167-pounder Mike Amine's injured
knee ligaments. He will be replaced
by Joe Pantaleo, who moves up
,from his usual 158 weight class.
Sam Amine will take over 158,
and junior Zac Pease will wrestle at
150. Pease had major knee
Reconstruction last February and this
will be his first match in more than
:year.
Today's matches will be the first
'at Crisler, where Michigan has
compiled a 34-7-1 dual-meet record
over the past five seasons.
"We wanted to schedule a couple
home matches that would not be
1'. A

quite as intense as what we had faced
against Oklahoma State and Penn
State this past weekend," Bahr said.
"It'll give us a chance to really kind
of catch our breath a little bit."
AFTER COMPETING at
home on Friday, Michigan will
travel to East Lansing to take on
intrastate rival Michigan State. "Our
kids will really be up for that
match," Bahr said. "Any time you're
Michigan-Michigan State, it's for
the bragging rights of the state."
An interesting matchup in East
Lansing will take place between
Larry Gotcher of Michigan and
Stacey Richmond of Michigan State
in the 142 division.
Earlier in the season at the Las
Vegas Classic, Richmond defeated
Gotcher, 3-2, on a controversial
stalling call. According to Bahr and
Michigan assistant coach Joe Wells,
the call could have gone either way.
"This will be the most interesting
of all the matches because (Gotcher)
does not like to lose to Stacey,"
Bahr said.
But Richmond always seems to
wrestle at his best against the
Wolverines. "(Richmond) kind of
resented the fact that we didn't recruit
him because John (Fisher) and
(former wrestler and current grad
assistant) Will Waters were here."
All three wrestled together in high
school at Flint Northern.
MICHIGAN'S toughest
challenge will come in Sunday's 4
p.m. home match against 21st-
ranked Lehigh. Last year the
Wolverines defeated Lehigh, 29-11.
"If there is a match that we would
like to peak for on the weekend, it
would be the Lehigh bout on
Sunday," Bahr said.
Lehigh, which has been a top 10
school over the past 10 to 15 years,
comes to Ann Arbor at less than full
strength.
"They're coming off a road trip
against Oklahoma and Oklahoma
State, and we're third team on the
trip, so (Lehigh) must be ready to
get home after those three matches,"
Bahr said. Oklahoma State is rated
No. 1 and Oklahoma also is a top
team.
The Wolverines have another
tough weekend ahead of them next
week, but Bahr said they are not
looking ahead to it. "We're going to
just take this weekend as it comes
and come out free of injuries."

'M' and Bowling Green
to play for fourth place

BY TAYLOR LINCOLN
Michigan's quest for a fourth-place finish in the
Central Collegiate Hockey Association and home ice
for the opening round of the league playoffs will be
tested this weeekend when the fifth-place Wolverines
face fourth-place Bowling Green.
After 20 games, Bowling Green (10-10-0) leads
Michigan (8-9-3) by one point in the league
standings. Tonight the Wolverines travel to Bowling
Green. Saturday the same two teams will face off at
Yost.
The Wolverines' slip into fifth place has been due
to their 1-8-1 record in their last ten league games.
"We need to get back to the things we were doing
earlier in the year," coach Red Berenson said.
But this won't be an easy time for the
Wolverines to stem the tide of downward fortunes.
Aside from the team's distraction caused by the
disclosure that four players may be charged with
harrassment, the Wolverines will be without the
services of Mark Sorenson, who is out with a knee
injury. Brad Turner and Kent Brothers are also
questionable. As Berenson said, "This hasn't been a
good week for us."
FOR BOWLING GREEN it has been a
season of streaks. The Falcons won seven of their
first eight then dropped eight of their next nine.
Since then, they have won eight of nine.
"Early in the season we won games that we
probably shouldn't have," Bowling Green coach
Jerry York said. "Then we started losing a lot of
tight games. Now we're finding ways to win."
Bowling Green is led by senior center Greg
Parks, who is second in the league in scoring with
40 points. "(Parks) is putting points on the board.
We'll have to shut him down," Berenson said.
The Falcons have given up the second-most goals

in the league, but they have compensated for it by
scoring 90 goals - the second-highest total in the
league. "They've got some real shifty forwards,"
Michigan center Mike Moes said. "We can't give
them any room."
BERENSON said that goalie Warren Sharples
will probably be given the job of stopping the
Falcons attack. He has been sharing time with first-
year netminder Tim Keough.
Earlier in the season the teams split their series,
with Bowling Green winning at Yost and Michigan
coming back from a 4-1 deficit to win in Bowling
Green.
"We've had unpredictable series against them,"
Berenson said. "We've won the last three times
down there, and they've won the last three times at
Yost."
But road victories and home losses have been the
rule rather than the exception for the Wolverines this
year, as they have gone nine games without a win at
home, yet enjoy a 6-2-1 record on the road.
"I don't think we've played poorly at home. We
just haven't won. You think you play better at
home without doing some things that you have to
do on the road. Maybe it's checking, maybe it's
intensity."
Michigan's win in Bowling Green was marred by
a fight at the culmination of the first period that
resulted in 10 players receiving game
disqualifications. The Wolverines came back from a
4-1 deficit to win, 7-6.
Though both teams remember the incident,
Michigan center Rob Brown doesn't think that there
will be a contunuation of bad tempers. "I think both
teams know where they are in the standings, and I
don't think people are going to worry about who
shoves who," Brown said.

BY JAY MOSES
Even the mighty sometimes face
foes that strike fear into their hearts.
The undefeated Michigan
women's swimming team, ranked
ninth nationally, heads into the
Longhorn Invitational meet this
weekend at Austin, Tex., to face the&
toughest competition they have seen
all year.
"We're going to be in a fight for
our lives down there," head coach
Jim Richardson said.
Among the Wolverines'
formidable opponents this weekend
include host Texas, ranked second
nationally and defending national
champions, and Tennessee, ranked
sixth nationally. Perennial powers
Cal Berkeley, South Carolina, and
Georgia round out the field.
Many of these teams are entering
the weekend with the intention of
establishing NCAA qualifying
times. The tough competition tends
to bring out the best times for
swimmers. They will be well-rested
in preparation for the weekend.
Michigan, on the other hand, has
entered the heavy training phase of
its season. The Wolverines
accomplished all of their NCAA
qualifying times at the Michigan
Invitational in December, and their
emphasis has shifted to increasing
speed in preparation for the Big Ten
championships in February. As a
result, some Wolverines will be
relatively fatigued.
None of this has Richardson*
overly concerned.
"If you can't get excited about
swimming against this kind of
competition, you don't belong in
Division I," Richardson said. "We're
just going down there to try to do
the same thing we do in every meet,
and that's to swim the best we can:?'
Michigan (4-0 overall, 3-0 in the
Big Ten) hopes the challenge it faces
this weekend will help strengthen
them for the remainder of the season.
Right now, all sights are set on the
Big Ten championships, to be held
in Ann Arbor.
The Wolverines are led by
individual NCAA qualifyers Ann
Colloton, Gwen DeMaat, and
Stefanie Liebner. But the emphasis
this weekend is on the entire team.j
"It's a big step for our program,"
Richardson said. "We're going np
against the national champions. I
don't think Michigan has ever done
that before, so it's a great growth
experience for our swimmers."
