The wheels of change are rolling
in yet another Michigan athletic
*gram - volleyball. But some
wheels move slower than others.
New coach Peggy Bradley-
Doppes stepped in to save a fledg-
ling program this year with a
winning history at North Carolina
on her side. But in seven games, the
Wolverines have been able to
salvage only one victory. Tonight's
game against Eastern Michigan will
yet another opportunity for
adley-Doppes to jumpstart her
team.
Is Bradley-Doppes preparing for
Eastern Michigan by reviewing
Michigan's record against the Hur-
ons? Not exactly. "When I took over
the job I did two things. I got rid of
the old tapes and I decided that I was
going to start fresh without any
preconceived notions," she said.
And so she hopes that the mo-
*ntum the Wolverines have gained
with a weekend victory over Central
Michigan will be enough to put
their losing ways behind them.
Still, there are other obstacles on
the way to winning. The team has
been hobbled by injuries all season,
with two starters currently sidelined.
Sophomore center Tarnisha Thomp-
son has yet to play a game this year
Se to ligament tears in her ankle.
ompson's absence has slowed
Michigan's offensive production.
"Offensively, we're doing okay.
But it's real hard to be an offensive
team when you don't have your
starting center in," said Bradley-
Doppes. The team has tried three
different replacements while waiting

for Thompson to return.
Senior Julia Sturm's performance
has been a bright spot for the team.
Since moving from right side to
middle blocker this season, her play
has aided the team. Impressive as
well is sophomore Chris White who
has done well at the other middle
blocker position.
This year's team is composed of
ten first year players, a young team
by most standards. Bradley-Doppes
points out that a different player may
lead the team on any given night,
and hopes these younger players
continue this trend as well as
develop more consistency in their
play.
In some ways the team's 1-6
record is deceiving. The matches
they lost to Louisville, Boise.State,
and Utah State all went three games
and all were close. "The kids are
playing really hard...we're not win-
ning and so I'm still a little
disappointed, but we're certainly
fighting all the way through,"
Bradley-Doppes said.
Although the changestthe new
coach has brought to the team may
not be visible in terms of wins and
losses, attitudes on the team are
changing. The Wolverines of 1990
are a more disciplined team with
better footwork, court positioning
and other fundamental skills.
"I think if you were to go to
matches last year and compare them
to this year, the girls' performance
as far as individual and collective
play is better. They look like they're
playing on the same team now,"
Bradley-Doppes said.

Urbanchek
named
Coach of
the Year
by Eric Lemont
Daily Sports Editor
He could have won it last year.
Or almost any year for that matter.
But it took until yesterday for
Michigan men's swimming coach
Jon Urbanchek to finally be dubbed
U.S. Swim Coach of the Year.
The American Swim Coaches
Aociation, at its annual coaches
convention and clinic, chose Urbanc-
hek over finalists Eddie Reese and
Mark Schubert, both of the Univer-
sity of Texas. Urbanchek felt he was
named, as was the Los Angeles
Laker's Pat Riley in the NBA last
season, more for his lifetime. of
achievement than for last year in
particular.
"I was just lucky. It came as a
surprise to me," Urbanchek said. "It
(the award) was not just for this
year. I think it was more of a way to
reward 29 years in coaching."
Urbanchek might have been
helped in the voting this year by
Michigan senior Mike Barrowman
breaking the world record in the 200
yard backstroke and junior Eric
Namesnik setting an American re-
cord in the 400 yard individual
medley.
Said former Michigan swimmer
and 1988 gold medalist Brent Lang
"He deserved this more than anyone
in the country. It was just a matter
of time. I think the notoriety that
Barrowman and Namesnik got him
the attention and made them take a
closer look at the program."
The program includes five
consecutive Big Ten men's swim-
ming championships and top five
NCAA finishes each of the last three
seasons, including a 4th place finish
last year. In addition, Michigan has
placed a national-high four swim-
mers (Lang, Barrowman, Namesnik
and junior Eric Wunderlich) on this
year's U.S World Championship
team.
Lang, however, feels Urbanchek's
greatest strength is the personal
attention he pays to his swimmers.
"He's concerned about the devel-
opment of people physically and
mentally," he said. "When I was
being recruited I told him even if I
don't go to Michigan I want you to
know that you're the most sincere,
most trustworthy coach that I've
met."'
Urbanchek's next role will be as
coach of the United States team at
the upcoming World Championships
in Perth, Australia.

Iayes leads linksters
to early season victory

Daily Sports Writer

A solid third round enabled the
Michigan women's golf team to
overtake Wisconsin and win -the
Lady Wolverine Invitational this
past weekend. Michigan posted a
i95 team total in the 54-hole event
to edge past their Big Ten foes by
just two strokes.
Despite a tournament low 77 re-
corded by senior Becky Hayes, Mich-
igan faltered to a 338 team total in
Friday's first round. That left them
in second place, nine strokes behind
the Wisconsin squad.
"I think they (Michigan) felt that
Se home course was going to be an
Invantage," Wolverine coach Sue Le-
Clair said. "Maybe they were trying
too hard to win at first. But they
settled down and played the way I'm
used to seeing them play."
Michigan settled down and im-

proved their team score slightly in
Saturday's round, carding a 333, but
only picked up a single stroke on the
front-running Badgers. It was on
Sunday that they made their move.
Hayes fired an 80, earning her
medalist honors for the weekend, and
helping the team to a solid 324 total
for the final 18 holes. Hayes's 239
for 54 holes bested Wisconsin's
Nicki Tiziani by seven strokes.
"It all came down to the last
group," LeClair said. "We were all
sitting there on 18, waiting for those
two (Becky and Tiziani). Becky camne
through for us. She's one of my
seniors. The past few years I haven't
been able to rely on seniors, but this
year we have six returners."
Michigan will face more Big Ten
competition next weekend as they
travel to the University of Minn-
esota.

lot of electricity, especially with the
first game against Notre Dame."
Jarrod Bunch, the other co-
captain, said he does not have a
problem playing at night, but he and
senior safety Vada Murray worry
about how the team will keep
occupied Saturday afternoon.
Murray said, "I don't like playing
at night. It leaves too much time on
your hands during the day. Playing
at night, you lose something be-
cause you get all psyched up and
then lose it and then you have to get
psyched up again."
But do not worry about Murray
being pumped for this game. In
Murray's three years on the team,
Michigan has lost three straight to
the Fighting Irish.
"Going down to South Bend this
year, it's a whole different at-
mosphere with Mo," Murray said.
"There's so much anticipation and
excitement this week. (South Bend)
'is a hard place to win, but it's the
same thing when others come to
Michigan Stadium. We realize
they're no superpower football team.
They bleed like we do."
