'M' SWIMMERS VIE FOR FINAL TOURNAMENT SPOTS
by Michael Bess and
Daily Sports Writers
After winning the Big Ten
Championships there is only one
thing left for the Michigan wom-
en's swimming and diving team:
the NCAA championships.
And at this weekend's Michigan
Open, the Wolverines will attempt
to help their NCAA outlook by
qualifying more swimmers for the
Co-captain Amy Honig summed
up the prospects for this weekend
by saying, "It's filled with opp-
At the Open, the only swim-
mers in attendance will be from
Michigan, Eastern Michigan and
local high schools.
But don't expect the team spirit
to drop this weekend just because
there is no visible opponent. Last
weekend, when a lone Michigan
swimmer swam a time trial in an
attempt to qualify, the whole team
stood around the pool and cheered.
Qualifying more swimmers will
help the team in attaining their goal
of finishing in the top four at the
NCAAs, which take place in three
weeks in Austin, Texas.
Already Michigan has qualified
six swimmers and three relay teams
to the NCAA meet. Last year the
team only qualified five individuals
and was still able to finish sixth.
But this year Michigan isn't sat-
isfied with six qualifiers.
"I think we will have four more
NCAA qualifiers, and a lot more
personal bests," Honig said.
Stefanie Leibner and Lisa Ander-
son are both close to qualifying in
the 100 and 200-yard backstrokes.
Michelle Swix is also a premier
contender with hopes of qualifying
in the 200 freestyle. Jennifer Love
also was close to qualifying last
week but was overcome by fatigue,
according to coach Jim Richardson.
Once a swimmer qualifies for
NCAAs in one event, they are
allowed to swim in up to three
events, including relays at the

"None of the guys who are

Michigan closes out its confer-
ence wrestling season this weekend,
but for one Wolverine, the season
has already ended.
158-pounder Sam Amine, who
was expected to draw the top seed at
the Big Ten Championships March
10, underwent surgery earlier this
week to remove torn cartilage in his
knee. He will miss this weekend's
dual meets with Ohio State (Sat-
urday, 7:30 p.m., Varsity Arena) and
Wisconsin (Sunday, 2 p.m.), as well
as the Big Ten and a shot at the
Amine (28-4-1 overall, 4-0-1 Big
Ten) suffered the injury against Iowa
State two weeks ago but continued
to wrestle with little difficulty until
he aggravated the knee in practice
"He's a big loss," coach Dale
Bahr said. "Sam was a good bet for
all-American, and he was looking for
a national championship. Our lineup
suffers without him."
Michigan (8-3, 5-1) will field
slightly different lineups because of
Filling the void at 158 will be
Larry Gotcher, but Bahr has yet to
choose between first-year redshirt
James Feldkamp or sophomore
Steve Benninger to replace Gotcher
at 150. Feldkamp competed at 150 W
against Indiana, but has not practiced
all week because of a nagging shoul-
Either Wolverine will face stiff
competition against Wisconsin (9-7-
1, 2-3-1), who sends seventh-ranked
Matt Demaray to the mat. If Ben-
ninger winds up competing against
Demaray in his first dual meet this
season, Bahr is confident he will
"Steve isn't the average control-
led wrestler," Bahr said. "His style
would probably give Demaray fits."
On the other hand, Ohio State
(18-5, 3-3) is softer in the middle of
its roster. "They're real tough at 118
through 142," Bahr said. "We'll need
a win there to throw them off track."
Of those classes, rookie phenom
Joey Gilbert faces the toughest
weekend competition. The 134-
pounder squares off against Buckeye
stalwart Mark Marinelli Saturday,
and then Wisconsin's Steve Hoffman
Sunday. Hoffman beat Gilbert, 4-0,
at the Northern Open in November.
All three wrestlers seek the third seed
at the Big Ten tournament.
"This weekend will decide it for
good," Badger coach Andy Rein said.
"134 is one tough weight class."

Oklahoma rocked the Michigan
baseball team early and cruised to a
9-4 victory in the first game of the
UNLV Desert Classic yesterday.
The Sooners hit Wolverine starter
Russell Brock for three runs in the
top of the first inning and added
another in the second.
Oklahoma's first inning explos-
ion came off Andy Fairman's second
career home run, a three-run shot.
Two other Sooners cracked homers
on the afternoon as Bryan Grejtnak
and ex-Wolverine Rich Samplinski
got into the act
Michigan's four runs came on
only three hits, thanks to the pitch-
ing of Sooner ace Kevin King. King
upped his record to 2-0, striking out
seven and walking only two in nine
innings of work.
