Being known as a goal scoring
threat, a defensive defenseman, or a
steady goalie may make you a valu-
able ingredient to any hockey team,
but Michigan center Mike Moes adds
something else to the Wolverines
current winning recipe - leadership.
"His presence on the ice rubs off
on everyone," said teammate Todd
Copeland. "He's been here for four
years and knows how to handle all
Moes' roommate and fellow
center Rob Brown agrees with Cope-
land. "Everyone on the team looks
up to him as a leader which is why
he was chosen as captain. He's a
good role model for us off the ice as
The senior economics major is
referred to as a "solid student ath-
lete," by Michigan coach Red Beren-
son. Moes is an overachiever, which
Berenson states is "exactly what
Michigan is looking for."
This balance between books and
pucks began early in his life. "My
mom was a teacher and she always
said school came first, before hock-
ey," Moes said. "And I understood
this; hockey doesn't last forever and
school is very important."
After finishing eight seasons on a
local team in his hometown of Burl-
ington, Ontario, 40 minutes south
of Toronto, Moes had expected to be
taken in the Major Junior A Draft,
but was never selected. But this did
not affect his love for the game.
"I really was disappointed," Moes
said. "I was bitter because some kids
who were barely making the team
were getting drafted, but because I
wanted to go to college, it didn't get
me down and out."
A player loses college eligibility
when he plays Junior A hockey, so
Moes joined a local Junior B team.
"Towards my second year, I was
getting a few nibbles and I knew (a
scholarship) was an obtainable
Since most local kids in the
Toronto area are heavily recruited by
the eastern United States schools,
Michigan represented something dif-
ferent. "It was kind of unique for a
kid to come here. Most go east,"
Berenson said. "But he had an oppor-
tunity to see something different and
he's always looking for something
of a challenge."
Even though college was a new
challenge for Moes, the transition
went smoothly according to Beren-
son. "He was one of those players
who came in mature and has been
able to do a lot from day one."
"It was a little tough at first, but
with the large recruiting class that
year, I think it was easier," Moes
said, referring to the transition on
Three years later, Moes has
stepped to the top as a leader.
"Mike's a valuable resource to this
team," said roommate and goalie
Warren Sharples. "He's well respect-
ed by everyone. You can approach
him with your problems and talk to
Selected in this summer's
supplemental draft by the Toronto
Maple Leafs, Moes may continue to
pursue his love of hockey. But he
isn't expecting anything for sure.
"It was a great thrill (being
selected by Toronto)," Moes said.
"It"s always been a goal of mine-to
play in Maple Leaf Garden. I'll give
it a shot, but if it doesn't work out
I'll know I gave it my best."
If the NHL is not what the future
holds in store for Moes, he'll always
be remembered for his role on the
Wolverine hockey team as one who
led by example. The consensus on
Moes is there is nothing secretive
about him. As Copeland states,
"What you see is what you get."
And in this case, you get a "hard
working, dedicated team player," ac=
cording to Berenson, whose leader-
ship will continue to show as his
final season comes to an end.

place finisher, Hilton Woods. Woods
captured best times in the 50 and
100 yard freestyle events.
Michigan head coach Jon Ur-
banchek was pleased with his team's
"We had some pretty good
,swims," Urbanchek said. "We used
this meet as more of a full workout,
getting all the guys in. I really want-
ed to see how we would swim tired."
Michigan dominated in nearly
every event. World record holder
Mike Barrowman made a splashy
season debut, garnering victories in
both the 100 and 200 yard breast-
stroke events. Senior co-captain
Brent Lang won the 100 yard butter-
fly as well as the 500 yard freestyle
event. In addition, junior Scott Ryan
recorded a season-best time in the
1000 yard freestyle.
The most encouraging perform-
ances of the night, however, came
from first year swimmers Steve
Bigelow and Brian Gunn. Bigelow
captured top honors in the 100 and
200 yard backstroke.fGunn was
outstanding, placing first in three
events, including a season-best time
in the 200 yard butterfly. Much of
this year's success hinges on the
performance of the younger swim-
mers, which makes Gunn's and
Bigelow's showings all the more
Urbanchek seemed impressed
with Gunn. "He (Gunn) is certainly
a top athlete," he said. "I was
looking at how he would perform

it wasn't that bad," Moes said.
