Michigan and Texas a
'shave' ahead in Austin

by David Schechter
Daily Sports Writer
A challenge is something to
which Michigan swimmers aren't
very accustomed.
Usually the team must travel
out-side the Midwest to find real
com-petiton. This weekend is no
excep-tion as the Wolverines will
fly to Austin, Texas, to compete in
the Longhorn Invitational. Texas,
last year's national champions,
Iowa, South Carolina, and Tennesse
will also be at the meet.
Michigan and Texas are such
dominate swimming leaders that the
other schools have prepared for the
meet by shaving and resting their
athletes.
Assistant coach Mark Noetzel
looks forward for squaring against
Texas and the other less-dominant
teams. "It's gonna be a really good
competion for our guys.
"It's our first big test to see if
we can perform up to par with the
rested athletes from other teams.
We hope to be able to rise to the
occasion without any break in
training."
Wolverine world record holder
Mike Barrowman might find some

competition too. Kirk Stackel of
the University of Texas is one of a
handful of swimmers who can give
Barrowman a run for his money,
but Barrowman doesn't see it that
way.
"I'm not really shooting for
him, and I don't think he's
shooting for me," Barrowman said.
"Neither of us are really focusing
on that right now. I think at the
NCAA's it will be a great race."
However, Barrowman does see
the meet as a challenge for the Wol-
verines. "The other teams will
really be gunning for us," he said.
"As a team, it will be our first real
challenge. "We'll have to stick
together."
Freshman Steve Bigelow echos
the sentiments of his teammate and
coach. "Trying to finish first will
be a big challenge since a lot of
teams are going shaved and tapered
(rested)," Bigelow said.
"We're gonna have to swim
really fast if we want to pull it out.
"The biggest thing will be trying to
come together as a team even
against people who are shaved and
tapered while keeping a positive
attitude," said Bigelow.

A battle between two of the
nation's top 10 teams will take
place this weekend as tenth-ranked
Michigan (8-5-1) faces off against
No. 9 Boston University (6-2-1) at
Yost Ice Arena Friday and Saturday.
"We know they're a good team
and that's good because it will help
us to be at our best," coach Red
Berenson said. "We'll be ready
physically and mentally."
Last season the Wolverines
played Boston in Massachusetts and
were pasted 9-3. This year, Mich-
igan is looking for some revenge
with the home ice advantage.
"We've got to set the tone right
away," defenseman Alex Roberts
said. "They're in Ann Arbor now
and they know this is our barn."
The Terriers come into Yost led
by their talented first-year goalie
Scott Cashman. In his six starts
this season, Cashman is 5-1 and
has allowed only 15 goals for a
2.48 goals against average. He also
has 151 saves for a save percentage
of 91 percent.
Offensively, Boston fields a
formidable group of young players.
Sophomore Shawn McEachern and
junior Joe Sacco, both left wingers,

lead the team in scoring with 12
points apiece. McEachern leads the
team in goals with seven.
The Terriers also field two
newcomers with a scoring touch.
Tony Amonte, a defenseman, and
Rob Regan each have six goals in
their first year at Boston.
Not only will this series pit the
talents of the CCHA versus those
of Hockey East in a non-conference
battle, but it will allow fans to
judge for themselves the myth of
eastern hockey against that of the
Midwest.
"Some say that there might be
more finesse in their style of play
while it's more physical in ours,"
Berenson said. "But it all depends
on how the referees call the games.
When we played them last year, it
seemed like every time they fell
down the refs were calling penalties
on our guys.
Overall though, Berenson does
not feel there is a difference between
the two regions and neither do the
players.
"I don't think there is a differ-
ence. When we played them there
was a lot of hitting by both sides,"
Roberts said.

JOSE JUAREZ/Daily
No. 9 vs. No. 10
Michigan left winger Don Stone and the rest of the Wolverine hockey
team will try to improve on their two-game winning streak tonight and
tomorrow when they face off against Boston University. The ninth-
ranked Terriers will provide Michigan with a formidable opponent for the
Wolverines' first non-conference series this weekend.

Women hunger for

shot at nation

If athletic teams feed on comp-
etition then the Michigan women's
swim team will have an absolute
feeding frenzy this weekend.
The team will send its top
swimmers to the national Grand
Prix meet in Los Angeles, where
they will compete against the
country's top swimmers.
"With us and Tennessee, Berk-
eley, UCLA, and Stanford you've
got five of the top seven teams in
the country," coach Jim Richardson
said.
Last year's national champion,
Stanford, offers the toughest chal-
enge. Along with their champ-
ionship status, they successfully
recruited Janet Evans, who won
four Olympic gold medals in 1988.
Michigan hopes this elite
competition will help prepare them
for their main goal: the NCAA
Championship meet in March.
"It's an opportunity for us to
take a look at these people during
the season so we can do a better job
of evaluating where we are right
now in relation to where they are

and then make some adjustments
between now and March," Rich-
ardson said.
The team has rested for the last
few days in preparation for what
they expect will be a tough meet.
"We've gone to a slightly
different training format this fall
and we're trying along with that a
different rest format and we'll know
this weekend whether it works that
well or not," Richardson, who is in
his fifth-year, explained.
But Richardson, who has his
team focused on the NCAAs, is not
too concerned with this weekend's
outcomes.
"I'm -not worried about it (the
outcome)," Richardson said. "I have
a lot of confidence in this team and
I think that whether we swim well
or whether we swim a mediocre
meet out there is not really going
to have any affect on our
preparation toward the NCAAs.
"They know this is just an
opportunity to swim a little bit
faster...to get us where we want to
go in March."

It's showtime for the Michigan
wrestling team this weekend.
The Wolverines travel to the
city of glamour and glitz for the
Las Vegas Classic. The wrestling
may outshine the neon as the field
promises to be the most compet-
itive in the country.
But the Wolverines are not afraid
of a challenge. Since the season
began, head coach Dale Bahr has
entered his troops in the toughest
fields that he could find.
"We could go to some of the
weaker tournaments, but we would
not know where we stand on a
national level," Bahr said.
Although Michigan is accus-
tomed to stiff competition, this
tournament is still something
special. Although team scores are
not kept, the individual results
often give a good preview of what's
to come during the regular season.
"It's the preseason tournament
that everybody is going to look at

and see who is strongest teamwise,"
Bahr said.
One of the individuals that
everyone will be looking at is
rookie sensation Joey Gilbert in the

praises.
"I really1

prove each week to keep myself
satisfied."
In addition to Gilbert, many
other team members have some-
thing to prove this weekend. Larry
Gotcher, last year's Big Ten champ
at 142, moved up a weight class
this season to 150. He is looking
to win his first tournament, having
finished second and third in his first
two meets this season.
Gotcher will be tested by
Indiana's Brian Dolph, who is the
defending national champion.
Dolph was the victor by a 1-0
count when the two met at the
Eastern Invitational.
Bahr's attention will be directed
toward the performances of three
redshirt frosh: Jason Cluff, Jim
Feldkamp, and Lanny Green.
According to Bahr, the success of
this year's Wolverines hinges on
the development of this trio.
With a field as large as the
NCAA championships in March,
the Vegas results could be a pre-
view of those coming next spring.
