'M' softball begins
year with 6-4 mark

by Meg Beison
The Michigan softball team
opened its season by finishing with a
6-4 record over spring break.
The first stop was Albuquerque,
N.M., where they played two dou-
bleheaders against New Mexico. The
Wolverines then traveled to Tempe,
Ariz., where they competed in the
ASU Diamond Devil Classic.
The Wolverines got off to an im-
pressive start to their season, sweep-
ing a doubleheader against New
Mexico, 6-3, 5-1.
Junior Patti Benedict had a strong
offensive performance, going 4-for-8
with an RBI and four runs scored.
Senior right fielder Stacey Heams
tallied three hits and five RBI, while
junior catcher Karla Kunnen went 4-
for-6 with an RBI and three runs
scored. Senior Heather Lyke went 3-
for-4 in the second game, with an
RBI and one run scored.
The Wolverines did not fare as
well when they met New Mexico the
second time losing both games of
this doubleheader, 5-2, 4-3. One
bright spot was senior infielder Sue
Sieler who had a triple, a home run
and two RBI in the second game.
The Wolverines fell to 2-4
Thursday as they dropped their first
two games in Tempe. They lost a
twin-bill to No. 12 Arizona State, 6-
1, 4-2. ASU tallied 17 hits, while
Michigan committed eight errors.
Following the two losses to ASU,
the Wolverines went on a four-game
winning streak, including victories
over !owa State, 4-0, and San Diego
State, 3-2. Michigan scored all four
of its runs against Iowa State in the
fifth inning, with help from a three-
run double by Heams.
Michigan recorded the victory in
the nightcap in 12 innings. Forbis re-

lieved sophomore pitcher Julie
Clarkson in the sixth inning to cap-
ture the win and improve her record
to 2-1.
Saturday also resulted in two
wins for the Wolverines as they
downed Iowa State a second time, 3-
1. Sophomore Mary Campana put
the Wolverines on top in the second
inning as she knocked in two runs.
Sophomore Tina Martin had two
hits and Benedict collected three, in-
cluding a home run, as Michigan
beat San Diego State, 3-0. Kelly
Kovach improved her record to 2-1
with the victory.

equal, a swimmer would record a
different time at a pool in Butte,
Mont. than at this point in Indy.
Some pools are fast. Some pools are
slow. IUPUI might have the fastest
in the nation.
However, the pool doesn't make
this meet, the competition does.
While swimmers say that swimming
is a team sport, those same
swimmers will say that at this meet,
it is not. Unlike most meets, team
points are not totaled; relays are not
swum; and consolation heats are not
swum.
In this meet, the top eight
swimmers from each preliminary go
head-to-head at night, each vying for
one of two things:. first or second
place. Times don't matter, records

don't matter. Getting your name on an event isn't immune to the
"the Wall"matters. selection process. Just ask Pablo
The Wall stands at the far end of Morales. The Stanford graduate set

The distance between first and eighth place
can be narrow - between second and third
infinitesimal - yet that may be the distinction
between being on the Wall and falling just
short.

Wolverine junior was unproven and
virtually unknown in '88 when he
surprised everyone, including
himself, by touching the wall second
in the 200m backstroke.
In doing so, Bigelow found his
name on the Wall and secured
himself a trip to Seoul later that
summer.
In short, this meet is a pressure
cooker. Names, reputations, and past
performances do not count here.
Now, berths on the Olympic team
are on the line in every race, to be
decided by hundredths of seconds.
Regarding the intensity at this
meet, all the clich6s apply. It's as
thick as pea soup. You can cut it
with a knife. It's suffocating.
Those who don't suffocate on it
will be on the Wall. They will have
achieved the dream that has kept
them motivated for years. They will
be Olympians.
