In its final display of dominance
this season, the Michigan women's
swimming team soundly thumped
Eastern Michigan Friday, 157-103,
and Indiana Saturday, 152-124.
Heading into the Big Ten Champi-
onships in two weeks, the Wolver-
ines improved their record to 8-2
overall, and 7-0 in the Big Ten.
The scores do not reflect the de-
molition job Michigan handed each
team. The Wolverines crowned
champions in every event against the
Eagles, and in most races claimed
several of the top scoring positions.
Seven Wolverines recorded multi-
pie victory performances.
Michigan promptly jumped out
to a 60-11 lead after rookies Alecia
Humphrey and Lara lHooiveld, ju-
nior Mindy Gehrs and senior co-cap-
tain Jen Love led a sweep of the 400-
yard medley relay. Michigan also
claimed first and second in the 1(X)0-
yard freestyle, and senior co-captain
Michelle Swix headed a sweep of
the top three places in the 200
freestyle, winning in 1:53.66.
First year swimmers Jen nifer
Almeida, Melissa H-arris, Kirsten
Silvester, Melissa McLean and
Humphrey won six of the next
seven events, propelling Michigan
to a commanding 157-43 advantage.
In the most exciting event of the
evening, Michigan's Katherine
Creighton swamn neck and neck with
sophomore teaummate Snip Francis
in the 500 freestyle, trading leads

throughout the race. Creighton
eventually pulled ahead for good,
winning by a mere three-tenths of a
second, 5:00.85 to 5:01.14.
The Wolverines stopped scoring
themselves haltf-way through both
meets, allowing the Eagles and
Hoosiers to close their deficits to
respectable margins.
Against Indiana, the Wolverines
scored early and often, as the relay
team of Humphrey, Hooiveld, Gehrs
and Love once again captured the
opening race - the 200 me Icy re-
lay.
Michigan then claimed victory in
the next four events, paced by
Hlumphrey's win in the 100-yard
backstroke. She blazed to a :56.58
finish, more than two seconds laster
than last season's conference runner-
up Lisa Anderson, also of Michigan.
"I didn't expect to swim this
fast in my first year, and I have
swain my best times." said
Humphrey. "I've trained a lot of
backstroke and IM this season, and I
think they both have improved a
lot."
While Indiana captured the 200=
yard butterfly, Michigan's Love,
McLean and rookie Jennifer Abell
swept the 50 freestyle.
Francis again was involved in an-
other thriller in the 500 freestyle.
This time, Francis pulled ahead of
teammnate Silvester and never relin-
quished her lead, winning by five-
tenths of a second, 5:01 .97 to
5:02.49.
"Last night, I wanted to hold

minute flats, so my strategy tonight
was to go out faster," Francis said.
"I couldn't hold onto it though, as
my time tonight was slower than
last night s."
Both McLean and Abell at-
tempted to make the Wolverine's
squad which will travel to the na-
tional championships in March.
Thus, they, along with others, were
completely rested this weekend.
"I think taper is going excel-
lent," McLean said. "I swain my-

drowning
best times this weekend, and hope-
fully, we'll qualify."
Next weekend, the Wolverines
have another chance to qualify more
swimmers for important meets, at a
time-trial meet.
"With another week of rest, I
think many of us will be able to
swim even faster," Francis said.
'The second halves of our races are
the most tiring, and resting will
specifically improve that part of
our race."

Men spikers finish
second at Classic

Outlasting 28 other teams
would be considered a great season
for most teams. The Michigan men's
volleyball team accomplished such
a feat in just one day, but it was
good for only second place as the
Wolverines fell to Graceland in the
Wolverine Collegiate Classic
Saturday, 15-7, 15-8.
"We really can't be disappointed
to lose to a team like Graceland,"
Michigan coach Tom lohengen said.
"They are a very experienced tean."
The tournament format included
six five-team pools where each team
played each member twice in one-
game matches. Michigan began pool
play as one of the top six seeds and
got off to a quick start, pounding
Ferris State, 15-10 and 15-6, and
Hope, 15-6 and 15-6.
The Wolverines: only loss
before the finals caine against.
Guelph. Michigan fell, 15-7, befbre
rebounding in the second contest for
a 15-8 victory.
Michigan handled its pool oppo-
nent, Eastern Michigan, 15-13 and
15-6, to earn a No. 2 seed behind No.
1 Park in the 12-tea nplayoff.
Iowa State was the third seed,
followed by Cincinnati, Windsor,
Michigan State, Guelph, Graceland,
Western Michigan, Cornell,
Buffalo, and Illinois State.
Michigan received a bye in the
first round and faced Cornell in the
second round.
Michigan's emotional play was
never as apparant as when co-captain
Rico Lathan placed a -perfect set for
Iniddle Michael McCune just off
the net in the first game against
Cornell.
Two Cornell blockers went up
strong but McCune would not be
denied as he let out a caveman-like
yell and drove the ball through and
down.
The Wolverines rode this emo-
tion to a 15-12, 15-8 victory over

Cornell to advance to the semifinals
against Michigan State.
Michigan State hammered
Michigan just two weeks ago and
the Wolverines were hungry for a
rematch.
Michigan thrashed the stunned
Spartans, 15-3, in the first game to
set the stage for the match.
Michigan was ahead, 10-6, in the
second game when Michigan State
called timeout.
Michigan had a lead against the
Spartans two weeks ago against the
Spartans only to lose the gameand
the match. Johengen reminded his
players of their prior letdown
during the timeout.
There would be no comeback this
time as Michigan finished off the
Spartans, 15-8.
"More than proving it to
(Michigan State), we needed to
prove to ourselves that we are as
good a team as they are," Johengen
said.
The Wolverines were led by the
hitting of MyCune, rookie Stan Lee
and junior Chris Peirce who all took
advantage of Latham's accurate set-
ting.
"When you need a side-out you
just throw it up there to Chris
(Peirce) and you've got a good
chance to get it," Johengen said.
After playing very little in the
preseason, Lee has emerged as a
starter for the Wolverines.
"I wasn't sure of my role early
in the season," Lee said. "I feel more
comfortable now and I'm having
fun."
While the Wolverine Blue team
of regulars finished second, the
Maize team of reserves won the con-
solation tournamnent and placed
13th overall.
The extra playing time for the
reserves should be a plus. for the
Wolverines down the road..
"I think this gives the coach and
the other players a lot of confidence
in us," sophomore Tony Poshek said.
