Michigan junior co-captain Carol
Szczechowski likes to lead by
example. The self-proclaimed scrap-
per and hustler expects these qual-
ities to be pervasive through the
women's basketball team as well.
The Wyandotte, Mi. native led
Mt. Carmel High School to the
Class C State Championship her
senior season. Following graduation
she decided to stay close to home and
help rebuild the Wolverines.
As the youngest of eight children
(six brothers and one sister),
Szczechowski's family has always
been important in her life, and being
close to home has allowed them to
remain an integral part of her life.
"My sister comes to all my
games, my brother Vic comes to a
lot of games, my Uncle Ralph and
Aunt Miriam come to all my games,
and my mom comes to all my
games," Szczechowski said. "That's
important to me for these people to
come to the games.
"I didn't want to go play for
another state. If I was playing for
Iowa and Iowa's winning - to me
that's, 'so what.' Why do I want to
win for Iowa? I want to win for
Michigan. I want to give Michigan
the good name."
SZCZECHOWSKI also gained
the opportunity to help turn a relat-
ively weak program into a confer-
ence and maybe even a national con-

Michigan defensive coordinator
Lloyd Carr told the Daily Monday
night that he has applied for the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin coaching posi-
tion, which opened last week when
the Badgers fired third-year coach
Carr, currently finishing his third
year as the Wolverines' defensive co-
ordinator and his tenth year on the
Michigan staff, could peak the
interest of the Wisconsin search
committee. Besides serving under a
highly respected coach like Mich-
igan's Bo Schembechler, Carr has
been the Wolverines' recruiting en-
voy in the Wisconsin region. His
key finds in Wisconsin include off-
ensive lineman Dean Dingman and
linebacker Tim Williams.
"I think that Wisconsin is a
tremendous opportunity," Carr said.
"Its a state that I'm familiar with and
I like the prospects that it has."
The opening in Madison is the
first major head coaching job for
which Carr has applied. He feels he
is still in a position where he can be
finicky about his coaching future.
"I'm extremely fortunate to be
able to coach at Michigan," Carr
said. "This is the first situation that
I am really pursuing, because it is
very attractive to me. Being a head
coach is part of myambition, but I
think I will be very selective in the
jobs that I pursue."
B E F O R E hiring a coach,
Wisconsin will have to find an
athletic director to replace Abe
Sponberg, who resigned shortly
before the Morton firing. The search
for the athletic dir-ector could in fact
help Carr, as Wisconsin has
consulted former Mich-igan athletic
director Don Canham in their search
for a new AD. Canham may also be
able to provide input on a successor
in the football office.
Carr added that Canham's pre-
sence did not have any impact on his
decision to apply for the job.
"We have two vacancies," Wis-
consin search coordinator Roger
Formisano said. "We are looking for
an athletic director and a football
coach. It is our desire that the new
athletic director hire the football
A professor in the Wisconsin
business school, Formisano is re-
ceiving the applications for the foot-
ball opening and holding them until
the new athletic director can begin
the search. Although newspapers in
Madison have reported Carr to be a
candidate, Formisano did not want to
single out Carr from the other 20-40
candidates the school is considering.
Formisano would not comment
on having had any serious discus-
sions, saying only that "(Monday)
his picture was in the newspaper.
That's how I know coach Carr."
THE SEARCH coordinator has
not even met Carr, but is very
familiar with the success of the
program with which Carr has been
"I have been to Michigan Stad-
ium on a number of occasions and
(Michigan) always seems to do
better than we do," Formisano said.
"We have beaten Michigan only
eight times in our history. A Mich-
igan coach of any stature is someone
we'd have to seriously consider.
"Bo Schembechler is a great
mentor. I don't know much about
his assistants. (Bo) has a great track
record at training people to be good
Michigan players offered more
definite praise for Carr and his work
on the Wolverine defense.
"Lloyd is very important," line-
backer Alex Marshall said. "He does
so much. He really works hard to get
things done and to get us where we
need to be. Not only along the lines
of thinking about the game, but
preparation and everything."
While Marshall acknowledged
what the loss of Carr could mean,
the coach did not feel the uncertainly
of his situation would interfere with
the preparation for the Rose Bowl.
"One of the great things about
this team is that they are a very
mature group of kids," Carr said.
"They've been able for 11 straight
weeks to play, in my opinion, with
outstanding consistency. That's ;a
tribute to their ability to focus in. I
think we all have a tremendous
desire to win this Rose Bowl game
and I don't intend to let anything
distract me as we prepare."
Sfields baseball clinic

Daily Sports Contributor
The Michigan baseball team will conduct a two-part
clinic for coaches, players and the general public this
weekend at the Michigan Football Building. Michigan
players and coaches as well as guest instructors will lead
Special guests include Detroit Tiger pitcher Frank
Tanana, former Michigan standout and current Texas
Ranger Rick Leach, and former All-Star catcher Ted
"The Friday night clinic is for coaches," Michigan
assistant coach Ace Adams said. "I'll be talking about
pitching, (assistant coach) Moby Benedict will be
talking about baserunning and (coach) Bill Freehan will
be giving a general talk on the program."
Saturday's clinic will be open to the general public.
The program will include a pitching exhibition by
Tanana, as well as exhibitions by Simmons on hitting,
Leach on outfield play, and former Detroit Tiger
Freehan on catching.
. According to Adams, the clinic has been very
successful in the past. "They've had clinics for the last
ten years and they've gone very well," he said. "500 to
700 coaches usually show up."
Adams also noted that the Saturday clinics usually
draw more than 100 students and local residents.
The Friday night clinic will run from 7:30 to 10
p.m. with registration between 6:30 and 7:30. Satur-
day's clinic will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with
registration between 8 and 9 a.m. Fees are $45 for both
days (coaches only), $35 for Saturday, and $15 for
Wolverettes to .kick toni'te

Daily Basketball Writer
At halftime of tonight's basketball contest between
Michigan and Central Michigan, the Wolverettes will
make their debut performance in front of the Michigan
men's basketball crowd.
The Wolverettes, a fully recognized club sport, is a
kickline dance group made up of 36 women which
originated in 1987.
The group, which performs dance movements, high
kicks, and splits, has performed at women's basketball
games and other University events. This year, they per-
formed at the tailgate parties hosted by radio station
WPZA, and last June, received a rousing ovation at the
Palace while performing during halftime of the NBA
In addition to performing tonight, the Wolverettes
will perform at two other men's games this season,
with the hope that they will be permitted to perform,.at
all games next year.
"This is our way of promoting school spirit," said
Paula Escobar, a co-captain of the team. "What does
anyone do at halftime anyway? Now they can still feel
involved in the game."
