Top four is the goal of swimmers

by Jeni Durst
and Jared Entin
Daily Sports Writers
After months of rehearsal, the
curtain will come down on the
Michigan women's swim team's
final performance this weekend. And
the team is hoping for one last
standing ovation.
The NCAA Championship meet
will be held in Austin, TX today,
Friday, and Saturday. It represents
the goal that the Wolverine squad
has sought all season. The
Wolverines, who tied for sixth at
nationals last year, have set their
sights on* cracking the top four.
Michigan is the only non Sun-belt
school to break into the NCAA top
ten.
"We're going to have to swim
the meet of our lives (to get 4th) and
get help from the other teams," said
coach Jim Richardson. "The top
three finishers are pretty well set
(Stanford, Texas, Florida).
"Berkeley is seeded fourth, and
deservedly so, but we're going to go
in aggressively. Berkeley has a lot
more people than us, so we'll have
to swim a lot faster than we did -t
Big Tens. Whether we can put it
together at the end remains to be
seen."
Michigan qualified eight
individuals, for nine events, and five
relays for the Championship. Yet,
the Wolverines failed to qualify any

divers this year, as no one was able
to make it past regionals.
Regardless, the team is
optimistic about obtaining a top
four ranking.
"I think it's a realistic goal,"
first-year swimmer Mindy Gehrs
said. "I think we will definitely get
top five. It totally depends on luck
and how the other teams do, but I
think we have a really good chance."
Michigan's representatives
include:
-Ann Colloton-Last year, she
won the NCAA title in the 200 yard
breaststroke with a time of 2:12.96.
In her final year, she again qualified
in this event along with the
shorter100. "Ann is probably the
best women's 200 breaststroker in
the country...right now and on any
given day could win the (national)
title," Richardson said. "Whether
Saturday is one of those days, we'll
have to wait and see."
-Gwen DeMaat- This senior
ranks as the most versatile member
of the Wolverine team. In the
previous year, she qualified for three
NCAA different individual events,
placing in the top 16 in each, and
participated on two relays. Though
this year she pulled out only one
individual qualifying time in the 200
individual medley. Yet, Dengaat will
also have a chance in the 100 and
200 freestyles as a secondary. But
her role doesn't end there, she will

be a keystones in two relays.
-Jennifer Eck-She will join
Colloton in both the 100 and 200
breaststroke races, both of which she
swam last year as a junior. Eck
walks into the meet with the Big
Ten crown in the 100 and
unexpectedly was the runner-up in
the 200, trailing only Colloton. Eck
said: "I've totally surprised myself in
the 200, I've improved four
seconds."
-Katherine Creighton-As a
sophomore she qualified for her first
individual NCAA event this year.
However, she competed in the 800
freestyle relay at nationals last year.
Creighton placed third at the Big Ten
Championships qualifying herself in
the 1,650 freestyle, with a time
of16: 25.24.
-Jen Love-Love is a sophomore
freestyler who was forced to sit out
the first semester of competition due
to insufficient credit hours, however
she managed to qualify for NCAAs
in the waning days before the
deadline, in the 50 freestyle. Also
she is an important part of the
freestyle relays.
-Mindy Gehrs-She is one of the
three first-year swimmers who
qualified individually this year.
Gehrs will represent Michigan in the
400 individual medley and has some
specific goals for her first national

competition. "I hope to place in the
top 16 at least and do really well in
the relays, to do well for the team.
The relays are what really count the,
most."
-Missy McCracken-She is
another first-year swimmer who
made the NCAAs, swimming in the
200 butterfly, probably the most
unexpected qualifier of the group.
McCracken adds more than her
ability to help her team at nationals.
Richardson said: "We needed the
spark and enthusiasm she gives t)
this team."
-Kathy Diebler-She is the fin
first-year swimmer who will
participate in Austin. Diebler capped
off an incredible rookie season by
qualifying in the 50, 100, and 200
freestyle. On top of being a
contender in three individual events,
Diebler will be instrumental in the
freestyle relays.
In addition to the above
individuals, Michigan will bring
three more swimmers to help
augment their already potent relays.
Senior Stefanie Liebner will be
joined by sophomores Lisa Anderson
and Michelle Swix, all of whom
missed qualifying individually, in x
multiple events, by tenths of a
second. Liebner and Swix earned all- 9
American honors last year at
NCAAs, both in the 400 medley
relay.

Michigan women's swimmer Gwen DeMaat dives in to competition at
the Big Ten Tournament in Indianapolis. DeMaat took the Big Ten
championship in the 500, the 1650 freestyle, and the 400 IM

Dental student is a pro at lacrosse

by Jonathan Samnick
Daily Sports Writer
At first glance second-year
Michigan dental student Paul Elder
looks like any other dentist-to-be.
But the butterfly bandage above his
right eye gives him away. "I got this
*hen a guy was coming across the
middle and I hit him, but my helmet
lbind of exploded. I'm not used to
these helmets," Elder said.
You see Paul Elder is a
professional athlete and a student.
When one thinks of professional
fthletes these days, it conjures
thoughts of strikes, high salaries,
"ehd a life of luxury. Not so for this
,4spiring dentist who sees playing
lacrosse, for the Detroit Turbos of
the Major Indoor Lacrosse League
(MILL), as "a hobby."
"As an undergrad I played for
Albion's lacrosse club, because I
wanted something to do in the
spring. I was also on the football
team. .I did it (lacrosse) just on the
side."
Elder was asked to try out for the
Turbos last season but opted instead
to concentrate on his academics
during his first year of dental school.
{ "I asked the dean before I did this
if it was all right," Elder said. "He
said, 'You're in good academic
standing so go ahead."'
In indoor lacrosse, there a five
players on each side plus a goalie.
Each player carries a short attack-
Sstick. The goals are small to

accommodate for the field which is a
covered hockey surface. In fact, in a
game between the Turbos and the
Philadelphia Wings this season, they
actually had to use hockey nets.
Detroit is one of six cities in the
four year-old MILL, the others are
New England, Philadelphia, New
York, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
Even in its embryonic stage the
MILL is doing well enough to
command large crowds at arenas
where the National Hockey League
(NHL) is the main attraction. This
includes Joe Louis Arena where the
Turbos, who are in their second
season, play. Despite a 1-5 record
the Turbos are averaging close to
16,000 fans a game.
Paul Elder has only been playing
lacrosse for five years. Earning $100
per game Elder is a professional
despite his relative inexperience with
the game. He was discoveredl playing
in the Detroit Lacrosse Club (DLC)
by the Martinello family en masse.
"My brothers and I played with
Paul over at the DLC and his size
(six-feet-two, 220 lbs.) and athletic
ability made us offer him a spot on
the team," said Turbos General
Manager Wayne Martinello who has
two brothers on the Turbos roster
and whose father, Medo, coaches the
team.
Elder is the primary face-off man
for the Turbos, a talent that has
made him even more important than
Wayne Martinello thought. "Paul is
a defenseman by nature but when we

found out he could face-off-a weak
spot on our team-he proved to be
very valuable," Martinello said.
Despite not recording any goals
or assists this season with two

Martinello added.
According to its popularity
growth since its inception four years
ago the MILL sees no bounds. Elder
cites the NHL as a point-in-fact.
"When the NHL started it was a six-
team league paying its players a few
hundred dollars for the season. Now
look where it is. I see no reason why
we can't do the same."
Few people know that lacrosse,
and not hockey, is the national sport
of Canada. But because lacrosse is
limited to the east coast in America,
growth may take the 80 or so years
it has taken the NHL to become a
major sporting attraction.
It is Paul Elder's hope that in a
few years he will be the Bo Jackson
of dentistry, playing professional
lacrosse as a hobby. "I hope to play
lacrosse as long as I can. I can be a
dentist any day."
So picture yourself in the friendly
confines of a dentist office and a
friendly giant possessing a drill tells
you to open wide. This thought even
scares GM Martinello, "If he gets
his hands in your mouth you can be
sure it's going to be fixed...one way
or the other."

NCAAs
applied a full-court press. The
defensive effort worked, forcing 14
first half turnovers by Michigan.
The Wolverines' shaky
ballhandling gave the Cowgirls a
slight lead at halftime, 33-31.
"Their two guards are two of the
quickest I've seen in a long time,"
Szczechowski said. "Sometimes I
lose confidence out there."
Although Oklahoma St. was
stealing the ball away, the team was
never able to establish any form of
offense.
"We thought the transition gam-,
would be in our favor, but it seemed
like it was in theirs," Halterman
said. "That was the biggest surprise
to me."
"It just seemed like we couldn't
get open on offense," Brown said.
"They just outplayed us."
Oklahoma St. got off to a
running start once again in the
second half, but at the 16:23 mark
Cox picked her fourth personal foul,
forcing her to the bench.
"I was trying to hard I guess,"
Cox said. "I don't think some of the
calls were good ones, either."
"I missed Althea when she was

gone," Brown said.
With Cox out, Szczechowski was
able to work her self free for
numerous open shots. The co-
captain scored 17 of her game higr
21 points in the second half.
Oklahoma St. was still able to
hold their lead through the first -
seven minutes of the second stanza,
but with 13:26 remaining Wolverine
senior guard Tempie Brown nailed a
three-pointer that began Michigan's
final surge to victory. At that point
the Wolverines went on a 14-5 run
to pull ahead for good.
Michigan's run was keyed by
spectacular shooting which saw
them connect on 52 percent of its
shots from the field. In addition, the
Wolverines went to the charity stripe
with every foul after the 5:24 mark
of the second half. Michigan took
great advantage of this opportunity
as the team hit 75 percent of its free
throws, which put it up by as many
as 14 points down the stretch.
The Wolverines shut down the
Cowgirl inside game. Michigan
forward Tanya Powell dominated the
boards. The co-captain finished with
a. game high 14 caroms. The
Wolverines outrebounded the
Cowgirls 23-18 in the decisive
second half.

games left to play, Elder has not
disappointed his team. In fact, they
were aware of his stick-handling
deficiencies, but, "he has exceeded
our expectations anyway,"
