rare home meet

Accidents happen. Just ask Michigan men's swimming coach Jon
Urbanchek. "It's a mistake," he said, referring to the schedule that has
is team swimming at Canham Natatorium only four times this year,
hile attending 14 away meets.
One of those four times is this weekend when the Michigan Coed
Swimming and Diving Invitational gets underway at 6 p.m. tonight.
The home-pool advantage might not ensure victory for the Wolverines,
though. A tough field consisting of Michigan State, Eastern Michigan,
Oakland University and Allegheny will be invading Ann Arbor, and all
are capable of an upset.
While Michigan made no special preparations for the Invitational,
Urbanchek smells trouble brewing in East Lansing. "Michigan State's
going to be well prepared because they'll be well rested," he said.
This is not to say Michigan is expecting to have a poor showing.
rbanchek has high expectations for many swimmers at the meet.
Three sophomores, backstroker Steve Bigelow, butterflyer Brian
Gunn, and freestyler Noel Strauss, are all looking to qualify for the
NCAA Championships with a standard time this meet, as is senior
freestyler Janet Winter. Bigelow and Gunn narrowly missed qualifying
times when they swam at the U.S. Open in Indianapolis last weekend.
Other Michigan swimmers to watch are junior world-class
breaststroker Eric Wunderlich, and junior freestyler Eric Namesnik, who
is coming off a win in the U.S. Open last weekend.
Women to test endurance

For the second-place Michigan
hockey team, this weekend's series
with Western Michigan will be the
last time it will be at full strength
for an entire month.
Sophomore co-captain David Har-
lock has accepted an offer to try out
for the Canadian Junior National
team and junior defenseman Patrick
Neaton has been selected for the
U.S. Junior National team.
Harlock has to leave next week
and will miss next weekend's series
with CCHA-leading Lake Superior
State. Neither Harlock nor Neaton
will be playing in the Great Lakes
Invitational or Michigan's subse-
quent series with Illinois-Chicago.
Michigan coach Red Berenson is
pleased about the opportunities his
two top defenders have received, but
he questions the restrictions the
Canadian officials have placed on
"They don't respect the fact that
these kids have to go to school,"
Berenson said. "The U.S. team
works around the college schedules
and the Canadian team doesn't."
The series with Western (7-7-2
overall, 6-6-2 CCHA) is crucial if
the Wolverines (10-4-2, 9-3-2) in-
tend to remain within striking dis-
tance of Lake Superior State.
Because Michigan's games in
Boston last weekend were non-
conference, Lake Superior was able
to slip past the Wolverines into first
place; thus setting up a battle for
first place next weekend when the
Lakers come to Ann Arbor.
The Wolverines are currently tied
with Bowling Green for second
place, but Michigan has two games
in hand. Bowling Green is playing
.two non-conference games this
weekend, and any points won by the
Wolverines will give them sole
possession of second.
"These are our two games to
Michigan rightwing Ted Kramer fires a shot through the Western Michigan defense in a previous game against
the Broncos. The Wolverines hope to sweep Western and move into second place in the conference.
With visions of sunny Honolulu - and final exams - in the back
of its minds, the Michigan women's swim team hosts the Michigan In-
vitational this weekend in Canham Natatorium.
The meet runs from today through Sunday afternoon, featuring
Michigan State, Division II Champion Oakland University and Al-
legheny (Pa.) College.
The Wolverines, fresh off split-squad performances at the Eastern
Michigan Open (second place overall) and the U.S. Open, are facing their
final action until, they compete against Arizona State, Hawaii and Air
Force, halfway into their training camp session in Hawaii, December 30.
Michigan assistant coach Margo Mahoney views this meet as a
chance to see how the team can react after tough races with little rest.
"It will be interesting," Mahoney said. "Both the squads at EMU and
at Indy swam really hard and we want to see how they'll respond."
Wolverine coach Jim Richardson said Michigan's training ritual has
"I don't want to introduce any new (anxieties) in their lives right
now. They have enough by dealing with exams," he said.
Rather than discussing the Wolverines' opponents, Richardson prefers
talking about the expectations for his team.
"They all gave pretty solid efforts last week," he said. "I would just
like to see a duplication."
win," Berenson said. "It's our chance
to move ahead of Bowling Green and
we better take advantage of it."
Fifth-place Western is trying to
remain at .500. Last weekend, the
Broncos swept Miami of Ohio, slip-
ping past Michigan State in the
standings. Western assistant coach
Kevin McCaffrey feels that, in order
for the Broncos to defeat Michigan,
his team will have to play a strong
game in Kalamazoo tonight before
coming to Ann Arbor tomorrow.
"Friday is the key game for us,"
McCaffrey said. "Michigan skates
like no other college team and we're
going to have to play very physical
just to keep with them."
Western's leading scoring threat
is senior center Mike Eastwood with
eight goals and seven assists thus
far. The real strength in the Broncos'
game is their goaltender, Craig
Brown. He ranks second in the
CCHA in saves (310) and third in
the victory department with seven.
"They are a much better defensive
team than last year," Berenson said.
"Maybe they're not as prolific offen-
sively, but they're a team that
doesn't give up as many goals.
They're tied with us in that depart-
Last week, the Wolverines lost
more than first place in the confer-
ence. Junior forward Denny Felsner,
who was leading the league in scor-
ing all season, dropped into second
behind Brett Harkins of Bowling
Green. Felsner has 18 goals and 11
assists while Harkins has 11 goals
and 19 assists.
The departure of Wolverine goal-
tender Tim Keough represents an-
other loss for the team. Keough re-
signed from the team Monday after
receiving limited playing time be-
hind two first-year goaltenders.
Though Keough's exit means greater
opportunity for first-year goaltender
Chris Gordon, he is sad to see
"It was really rough seeing
(Keough) go," Gordon said. "I can
respect his decision, but it still is
tough seeing him leave the team."
