in final two home contests

by Ryan Schreiber
Daily Sports Writer
In their final home weekend of
the season, the Michigan volleyball
team lost a pair to Northwestern and
Wisconsin Friday and Saturday
Northwestern (10-17 overall, 5-8
in the Big Ten) literally served
Michigan (6-17, 1-14) the loss,
forcing the Wolverines into service
return errors throughout the match.
Outside hitter Shelly Brzozowski led
the Wildcat charge with 10 kills and
two aces in their 15-7, 15-7, 15-11
"(Brzozowski's) got a top-spin,
side-spin serve that's real difficult to
handle," Michigan coach Joyce
Davis said. "Although we had
problems with it tonight, we didn't
have nearly as many problems as we
did up at their place. She's an
awfully tough server."
Northwestern coach Jerry Angle
agre.athattthe servicetook
Michigan out of its offensive
"I think we served real well
tonight," Angle said. "Michigan was
constantly passing the ball up near
the 10-foot line. When they got the
ball up to the net, we had trouble
stopping their quick attack. But, as
long as we kept the ball eight feet
from the net on their passing, we
had a pretty good idea of where the
ball had to be set to."
In the third game, the
Wolverine's intensity level rose as
they fought evenly with
Northwestern. However, Miriam

Stariha, whose 13 kills were a game
high, snuffed out any chance for
Michigan to extend the match,
scoring on three late opportunities.
Countering Brzozowski, first-year
hitter Hayley Lorenzen brought a
new dimension to the Michigan
attack with her outstanding service
game in both matches, tallying six
aces for the weekend.
"Hayley played great," Davis
said. "She's been improving with
each match all year long. She served
really well and aggressively." -
The service game dominated the
match versus Wisconsin, (19-9, 7-7)
with both teams combining for a
remarkable 26 aces in addition to 26
service errors as the Badgers came
away victorious, 15-12, 15-4, 14-16,
15-7. Michigan's Julia Sturm
contributed a game-high five aces
and 14 kills to lead the Wolverines
to the third-game, come-from-behind
"I was really proud of the way we
fought to get Game 3," Davis said.
"But, again, our receiving game was
inconsistent. It wasn't up to par
with competing in the Big Ten."
On a lighter note, senior Karen
Marshall recorded 10 kills, the final
one moving her into first place for
career kills at Michigan with 1,046.
She jumped ahead of Marie Ann
Davidson who set the record in
"It's the highlight of my career
being able to be in the record
books," Marshall said. "It's great
because I think I'm taking over
Marie Ann, who I played with for
three years and was a great player."

is entering the suspects' establishment to search for other violators.
The five individuals are accused of dropping off their Griddes picks on
Saturday evenings at midnight, breaking into the Student Publications
Building, and thereby cheating to win the lunch or dinner for two at
O'Sullivan's Eatery and Pub on South University (limit $12).
"This kind of thing is just a disgrace to the United States of
America," said one GIA spokesperson who wished to remain
anonymous. "Fortunately, the GIA is on the lookout for scum like

three divers for nationals

The Michigan men's swim
team looked impressive in its
season debut, garnering wins in
Madison; Wisconsin and
Evanston, Illinois 'over the
weekend. On Friday night, the
Wolverines defeated Wisconsin and
the next day dominated a dual meet
with Iowa State and Northwestern.
As expected, Michigan had
little trouble against the Badgers,
capturing 75 points to
Wisconsin's 33.The new400-yard
freestyle relay┬░ team of Brian
Gunn, Brent Lang, Jarret Winter,
and Eric Namesnik performed
especially well.
Senior co-captain Lang was
pleased with the Wolverine's
performance. "The 400 freestyle
team performed better than the
team at midseason last year," Lang
said. "Overall, individual times
weren't outstanding, but everyone
raced well."
In Saturday's dual meet,
Michigan outscored Iowa State 66
to 48, and Northwestern 100 to
11. Thesteam coasted despite the
absence of All-Americans Mike
Barrowman and Eric Wunderlich,
both of whom had exams Friday.
Namesnik filled the void with
solid showings in three events.
Assistant coach Mark Noetzel
said the coaching staff is still
looking at individuals and
combinations which will excel in14
the NCAA championships at the
end of the season.
"We're always changing them
(the lineups) around a little, trying
to see who are the fastest at this
point," Noetzel said. "We're

team took an early step towards
their goal of a strong national
finish by qualifying two divers this
weekend for the NCAA regional
At the squad's first dual meet
against Wisconsin in Madison,
Karen Sinclair and Whitney Shearer
placed first and second respectively
in the 1-meter springboard diving
event. In doing so, they both
surpassed the point-total needed for
an NCAA regional bid. The two
also went 1-2 in the 3-meter event.
Along with many other strong
performances, the diver's finishes
helped Michigan crush Wisconsin
by a whopping 40 point margin,
78-38. Diving aside, the
Wolverines captured nine of the
eleven other events.

Yet the Badgers' head coach Carl
Yohannson was excited with his
two victories. All-American Susan
Wilkinson pulled out wins in those
"You pretty much know the
outcome when you go in (to a
competition)," Yohannson said.
"You have to race and learn from
your races."
On the Wolverine side, senior
Gwen DeMaat found victory in
both her events, the 200-yard
freestyle and the 200 backstroke.
Frosh Mindy Gehrs had a strong,
versatile day, placing first in the
200 individual medley, second
behind DeMaat in the 200 freestyle,
and third in the 200 breaststroke.
Gehrs, who specializes in the
butterfly, was one of many who
swam outside her usual event.
"We swam people in some
different events to get them a little

hungry for their events today
(Saturday against Northwestern),"
Michigan coach Jim Richardson
The Wolverines strategy proved
very effective against the Wildcats.
Michigan rolled over Northwestern,
81-31, much to the surprise of
coach Richardson.
"We were expecting a really
close meet," the fifth-year coach
said. "It may be that they're a little
behind us in training."
The Wolverines' dominated the
meet in giving up only one first-
place finish - in the 200 butterfly.
Many team members handed in
double victories.
"This was the best dual meet
we've ever had since I've been at
Michigan," Richardson exclaimed.
"These kind of times at this time of
year is awesome."
