Michigan and Michigan State swimmers dive off their starting blocks in Friday night's dual swim meet at
Men swimmers blow away

Welcome to the big leagues, Mr. Bader.
At Canham Natatorium Friday night, Michigan
State coach Richard Bader received a less-than-friendly
introduction to the upper echelon of collegiate swim-
ming. The first-year coach suffered his first taste of
defeat, in the form of a 77-45 loss to Michigan. The
loss was the handiwork of a fine-tuned Wolverine squad
that left Bader nearly speechless.
"You have to admit, Michigan is pretty incredible,"
he said after the meet. "We came in and did a nice job.
Any time you have an opportunity to watch a team like
Michigan swim, it is (bound to be) good for you."
With the victory, the fifth-ranked Wolverines raised
their dual meet record to 8-2, 3-0 in the Big Ten.
Michigan State, currently 22nd, dropped to 8-1 and 5-1.
Michigan benefitted from a balanced attack which
saw eleven swimmers contribute to the cause. The
Wolverines also swept both diving events, led by Mike
Bayerl, Steve Hamerski and Rob Silverman.
However, the highlight of the meet was the per-
formance of senior co-captain Brent Lang. Lang finished
first in his only two events. His NCAA-qualifying time
of 1:37.47 in the 200-yard freestyle was overshadowed
only by his showing in the 500 freestyle. His time of
4:28.79, the second-best by a Wolverine this season,
looms even more impressive considering Lang doesn't
normally compete in that event.
Michigan's victory over its intrastate rival comes on
the heels of a first-place finish at the Dallas Morning
News Invitational last weekend. As head coach Jon Ur-
banchek says, the team is performing at near-champ-
"I really think we're clicking now," he said. "All the
right things are falling into place." Even so, Urbanchek
has not put his team on cruise control. With the NCAA
Championships still two months away, complacency is
the last thing he wants to see.
"Tonight we made some lineup changes, mostly to
break up the repetitiveness some of (the swimmers can
start to) feel. For example, Brent Lang was outstanding
in the 500 freestyle, an event he seldom swims," Urban-
'I really think we're clicking now.
All the right things are falling into
- Men's swimming coach
Following the Wolverines' victory, Bader com-
mented on the value of competing against a team like
Michigan. "When you look at the Big Ten, you see six
teams that are in the Top 25," he said. "The level of
talent is extremely high, and that's great for the con-
ference. With coach Urbanchek leading the way, I'm
sure the rest of us will soon follow."

What was suppose to be a contest
etween the Big Ten's best turned
gut to be no contest at all. Nature
von hands down.
Poo- weather conditions

wimming and diving team from
ravelling to Ohio State.
Luckily, Michigan was able to
ravel Saturday to Minnesota.
lthough Minnesota was pumped up
n front of a huge home crowd,
Michigan achieved a come-from-
ehind 84-56 victory, with many.
tellar individual performances.
Minnesota out-touched Michigan
n the 200-yard medley relay to take
n early lead. "Minnesota was
pumped up," Michigan coach Jim
ichardson said. "They edged us out

Anderson and Colloton continued

200 backstroke and 200 breaststroke,

pool record in the process.
But Michigan's grand roll of
ictories was not yet over. DeMaat
won her third race of day, the 500
reestyle. Creighton also pulled off a
econd place finish, earning
Richardson's praise. "Gwen and
Kathy swam a really, really gutsy
ace," he said.
Gehrs and fellow rookie Claudia
Vieira locked the meet for the
Wolverines with a first and third
inish in the 100 butterfly.
Richardson was pleased with theO
meet saying, "We got out of this
weekend what we needed to see."

"It was one of those days where
every time you go to the bench
someone comes up with a great
contribution," VanDeWege said. "It
seems like everybody I called on
came in and made a big basket, a big
rebound, and a big steal. It really
was a team effort."
The last few minutes belonged to
the Wolverines, as Michigan scored
nine straight points for the 71-62
Friday night, Michigan was ex-
pected to lose to the first place
Boilermakers, and the Wolverines did
just that, taking a 75-71 pounding.
Michigan hung in the game for
the first ten minutes, as Purdue nev-
er led by more than four points. But
the Boilermaker bench strength came
through as they went on an 8-0 run
to end the first half leading, 39-27.
After intermission Purdue never
let up, and the lead expanded. Part of
the responsibility has to fall on the
poor second half shooting by Mich-
igan. The Wolverines shot a meager
22 percent in the half and only 34.5
percent for the contest.1
However, Purdue didn't have any
problem putting the ball in the
bucket. Guard MaChelle Joseph and v
forward Joy Holmes led the scoring w
list for the Boilermakers with 18. f
Once again center Val Hall played
extremely well for Michigan. TheK
senior put in 10 points and grabbed r
11 rebounds. First-year player Trish
Andrew also stood tall for the
Wolverines by blocking four shots. N
"Purdue is just a great team. We V
matched up better against Illinois," fi
Powell said. "We knew we could
beat this team (Illinois). We didn't r
want to go home without a win." M
