Even though the Michigan
women's gymnastics team has
posted lower scores than both Iowa
and Michigan State, they look to
change that in today's home meet
against the Hawkeyes and Spartans.
ChristinerFurlong, who has
slowly been returning to the line-up
from a thumb injury, will vault to-
day along with other teammates pre-
paring for difficult vaults.
"We are trying to upgrade (the
routines) a little at a time, we're do-
ing a little (upgrading) on vaulting.
On bars we will do the same rou-
tines but hopefully we'll hit them.
We've been very successful on beam
so far, so you know the saying, 'If
it's not broken, don't fix it."'
As for the intrastate rivalry, it ex-
ists in gymnastics as well.-
"They want to beat State just
because they're State," Fry said,
"just like every other Michigan team
wants to beat State."
While Michigan goes into the
meet at 4-1, Michigan State's record
is a deceptive 2-3, with their losses
coming against highly ranked teams.
Iowa is 2-1.
Fry refuses to make any score

Over the past two weekends, the
Michigan men's swim team has
garnered its share of frequent flier
mileage. After facing some of the
nation's best teams in Texas and
California, the Wolverines will be
welcomed home tonight by the unde-
feated Spartans of Michigan State.
Michigan (7-2, 3-0 in conference)
is coming off an impressive first-
place finish in the Dallas Swim
Classic, besting the U.S. National
Team by nine points.
The Spartans have enjoyed
newfound success under head coach
Richard Bader. "Well, they're 8 and 0
and defeated Minnesota at Christmas
training," said Michigan assistant
coach Mark Noetzel. "Bader has
really built their program. They've
certainly come a long way."
Although the Spartans have yet
to lose, their caliber of competition.0
has paled in comparison to Michi-
gan's. Of course, emotions always
run high in an interstate rivalry.
"Michigan State has put together
some pretty good times," Noetzel
said. "There should be a lot of

into Michigan State Relays
meet OSU, Minnesota

Continued progress is the issue as the Michigan
men's indoor track team heads to East Lansing this
weekend for the Michigan State Relays.
"What we're looking for is continued improvement,
times getting faster and jumps getting higher," head
coach Jack Harvey said.
Harvey feels optimistic after last week's perfor-
mances at the Western Michigan Invitational in Kal-
amazoo, where the Wolverines had several first-place ef-
forts, including a 17-foot-2-inch leap by pole vaulter
"Even though Darr leaped only 17-2 last week, he
had an excellent attempt at 17-8 which would have been
an NCAA qualifier," Harvey said. "I do expect that he'll
qualify, but I don't know when. Maybe this week,
maybe not until the Big Ten."
In addition to Darr, Harvey hopes for a strong
showing from high jumper Brad Holwerda, who is
coming off of a one week layoff, but the coach says that
it is hard to do well at Michigan State.
"It's tough to jump at MSU because the jumpers
have to make their approach across the track while there
are other races going on, so the jumpers have to stop
and wait," Harvey explained. "I don't think there will be
too many outstanding 'jumps, but whatever there is,
Brad will be right in there."
He is also curious as to how running back/sprinter
Allen Jefferson will look in his first race of the year.
"It's going to be interesting," Harvey said. "He
hasn't been in a meet yet, so we're unsure how he'll do.
He's not in great shape for running yet, so we probably
won't see any great times for a couple ot weeks."
Nonetheless, he remains confident: "Michigan State
has two or three areas where they've got good athletes,
but teamwise they're not as good as we are."

Minnesota to swim against the
Just because Michigan is looking
ahead to the Big Ten championships
doesn't mean coach Jim Richardson
isn't aware of the talent he will see
this weekend. Ohio State has the
number one 200-yard backstroker,
the number one and two 500
freestyler, and the number two 200
butterflyer in the conference.
"It's good that we have to swim
against such strong competition,"
Richardson said. "Just because we
are going into taper (not practicing
hard in order to rest), we don't want=
to lose our aggressiveness. Nor, do
we want to lose our intensity."
Of course, Minnesota is no
pushover. Among the Gophers are
the number one 3-meter diver, num-
ber two 1-meter diver, and the num-
ber two 1000-yard freestyler in the
Big Ten. As a team, Minnesota is 3-
1 in the Big Ten.
Although many of Wolverines
may agree with diver Amy Hansen,
who said, "It's a bad case of very
poor planning," Richardson hopes
that this long weekend will be the
final step in fine tuning the swim-
mers for their goals, one of which is
just two weeks away.
