Water polo fans rejoice!
*0W The Michigan water polo club
plays its first home match in ten
years Saturday evening. However,
the Odyssean return will end up a
few miles short of Canham Nat-
atorium, as coach Scott Russell's
team made reservations at the
nearest pool: Pioneer High School.
The Wolverines (7-11 overall, 2-
4 in the Big Ten) will face
Michigan State in two matches.
"Finally, to have (a match)
inside the city limits of Ann Arbor
is pretty exciting for me," senior
icaptain Keith Cox said.
Last Saturday in Bloomington,
the Wolverines splashed Indiana,
17-9, in the semifinal. Michigan
then took the tournament crown
with a 6-5 victory over Missouri-
Rolla's varsity squad.
h Traditionally, the Spartans have
been a weak team, and that gives
Cox confidence entering the match.
"We've got some cautious
optimism going for Saturday," he
According to Cox, the B-team
"held their own" against the Spartan
varsity squad. He looks for them to
post a win against their second-
The match at home provides a
welcome respite for the Wolverines.
The lack of travel will be a good
opportunity to rest up for the Big -
Ten Championships a week away
in Bloomington. Michigan holds
the third seed behind Northwestern
and Wisconsin, but Cox is ready to
capture the title.
"(The third seed) is not a bad
place for us," he said. "I'd be kind
of disappointed if we don't win."
The matches begin at 7:30 p.m.

Indiana coach Bill Mallory,
whose team is a half-game ahead of
Michigan in the standings, is sur-
prised to find the Wolverines in their
"I think Michigan's as good a
team as there is in the conference,"
Mallory said. "If anyone had pre-
dicted they'd be 1-2, I would have
said no. They still have a darn good
Nor would many have predicted
Indiana (4-1 overall, 1-1-1 Big Ten)
to have started the season so strong.
Moeller believes Indiana's success is
a year ahead of schedule and, two
weeks ago, several league coaches
called the Hoosiers the surprise team
of the league after they had stormed
to a 4-0-1 record.
In those first five games, Indiana
outscored its opponents 209-76,
with final scores of 45-24
(Kentucky), 58-7 (Missouri), 37-6
(Eastern Michigan), 42-0
(Northwestern), and 27-27 (Ohio
A primary force behind Indiana's
scoring surge has been Vaughn (no
resemblance, no relation)Dunbar.
The senior tailback has averaged 5.2
yards a carry and has rushed for 556
yards so far this season.
Moeller expressed concern for In-
diana's balanced offensive attack and
Vaughn in particular: "They have a
good tailback and their quarterback
(junior Trent Green) is playing well.
We don't want Dunbar running the
ball or their fullbacks breaking loose
on option plays," he said.
Dunbar and the rest of Indiana's
offensive juggernaut hit a sudden
snag last week, however, in a 12-0
loss to Minnesota in which Dunbar
managed only 11 yards.
"I'm very disappointed in the way
we played," Mallory said.
"Disappointed in our kicking game
and offensively we didn't get the job
While rumors floated after the
game that Indiana's offensive line
tipped off Minnesota's defense with
the way its guards lined up, Moeller

MacDonald unveils swim
club as non-varsity outlet
by Bonnie Bouman
Stacy MacDonald leaned back as she watched over a dozen bodies
flashing through the water. "It's amazing to look at it and think that I
started it," she said of Michigan's new coed swim club.
0. MacDonald, an LSA sophomore, was amazed last year to find there was
no organized outlet for swimming other than the varsity swim team.
"I was so disappointed, I couldn't believe a big school like this didn't
have a club," she said.
MacDonald got sick of complaining that she had no one to swim with.
She eventually started looking for others interested in swimming
competitively, but who didn't have the time or ability for the team. She
.approached the sports club director and posted signs on campus.
"I knew there were a lot of people who want to swim," MacDonald said.
"I felt I couldn't lose."
Now 20 people practice Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:15 p.m. to
Omidnight at the North Campus Recreation Building.
Coach Steve Murley, a grad student who also coaches the Ann Arbor
Master's swim team, uses three different workout levels: A, B and C, for
swimmers of varying abilities. "We've got a wide range of people," he
explained. "Some swam competitively and some never did."
The C level swims around 3400 yards, while A swimmers can do up to
4000. "Everyone's increasing in endurance," said Murley, who volunteers
his time to the swim club.
"I'm still not where I'd like to be, but it's improving," said Jeff Grant,
an LSA senior who saw a sign posted at the CCRB last spring. "I was out
of shape and I just wanted to get back into swimming, see how fast I could
Linda Friedburg, also an LSA senior, joined hoping the formality would
encourage her to exercise regularly. "It's a good low pressure way to work
-Out, it's organized."
Friedburg swam for the varsity program her first year here, but left
because of demands on her time.
"Swimming is not only physically but mentally demanding," she said.
"When you have a group of people, you develop a camaraderie and it helps
you stay in and work harder."
The club is planning a meet against CMU, and MacDonald is searching
*or other colleges with similar clubs.
"It's hard since we're so new to travel long distances and stay in hotels,"
she said. "It'll have to be day meets at first."
Both MacDonald and Murley would like to see more members interested
In swimming. "We'd like to fill the pool," Murley said.
"I want people to be able to have fun and swim and to work out to-
gether," MacDonald said.
Sophomore wide receiver Desmond Howard eludes a Maryland defender en route to a first down earlier this
season, in Michigan's victory over the Terrapins. The Wolverines travel to Bloomington to take on the Indiana
Hoosiers this weekend. in an effort to rebound from two straight losses.
"Number one, Minnesota is not a
terrible football team," he said. "It
happens to everyone coming off a
big, emotional game against Ohio
State. They probably weren't in the
proper frame of mind.
"I think what happened to them
is they were overlooking Minnesota,
trying to think about Michigan com-
ing in here."
Now, it is the Wolverines who
can't afford to take their eyes off the
road when they bus down to Bloom-
"Anytime you're the defending
champion and picked to win it (the
Big Ten), it's not easy," Moeller
said. "But there is not pressure on us
now, we can just come out and be a
