suffers
another
setback
by Adam Miller.
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan men's tennis team,
already reeling from an 0-4 road trip
to start the season, was dealt more
bad news this week. No. 1 singles
player David Kass is suffering from
tendinitis of the lower right arm and
will not practice this week.
Kass will miss Friday's home
match against Illinois, and may also
be absent from Sunday's match at
Northwestern. Kass is ranked No. 4
in the nation with a 3-1 singles
record.
"Right now, we're just resting
him," coach Brian Eisner said.
"We're not putting any movement
on that arm at all."
Eisner said the main problem that
Michigan will face in Kass' absence
is the forced change in lineups. All
singles players will move up one
position - regular No. 2 D a n
Brakus will compete at No. 1, and
Eric Grand, a doubles specialist, will
be moved into the No. 6 singles po-
sition. However, the Wolverines'
opponents are not counting on any
extended absences.
"He'll play," Northwestern coach
Paul Torricelli said of Sunday's
contest in Evanston.
Kass could not be reached for
comment.
GOING THE DISTANCE: How
close was Michigan in last week's
losses? 13 of the 30 individual
matches played went to three sets,
with three ending in a tiebreaker.
Michigan lost all three that ended in
this fashion, and lost nine of the thir-
teen overall.
SWEET LIBERTY: To prepare
for Friday's home opener, the
Wolverines have moved practice to-
day and tomorrow from the Track
and Tennis Building to the Liberty
Sports Complex, Michigan's home
for competition.
TBA ANNOUNCED: Michigan
fights the Illini at 2:30 p.m. Friday.
The time of the match was previ-
ously listed as TBA.
* Golfers tee
it up in s. C.

The Michigan men's golf team is
primed to begin one of its most
awaited seasons under head coach
Jim Carras. This weekend's Ben
* Hogan/Fripp Isle Invitational on
Fripp Island, S.C. will inaugurate
Carras' tenth year as Michigan's
head coach.
The Maize and Blue's season has
been highly anticipated, as all of the
golfers from last year's team return.
The duffers had a strong second
half of last season, winning the Wol-
verine Invitational over 16 other
teams. There is nothing but im-
0 provement expected from this expe-
rienced group.

Leading the way is senior captain
Dean Kobane. Kobane, a transfer
from Pepperdine, was ranked third in
Big Ten overall stroke average last
year, shooting an average 73.5 over
22 rounds. As the top Wolverine
golfer in five of 11 meets last year,
Kobane has a chance for all-America
honors this season.
Fellow seniors Denny Sikkila and
Anthony Dietz, as well as junior
James Carson all have two years of
experience to join Kobane as the
leaders of this year's much-awaited
team. Junior Bob Henighan and
sophomore Carl Condon each have
one Michigan season under their
belts.
'This is the strongest team we
have been able to field at Michigan

By Chad Safran

Mike Barrowman has been
named United States swimmer of the
year three consecutive times. He has
broken the world record in the 200-
meter breaststroke five times in the
last 31 months. Until last evening, he
had not lost in the event in over three
and one-half years. But things
change.
He finished fourth in the 200
breast at the 1988 Olympic Games.
Since that time he has become a man
on a mission to erase a disappointing
memory. The mission has been tem-
porarily delayed.
Curl-Burke teammate Roque
Santos touched the wall ahead of
Barrowman in a time of 2:13.50.
Barrowman followed in second-
place with a clocking of 2:13.54 and
was not enthused with his swim.
"How can I be pleased swimming
three to four seconds over what I can
really do," Barrowman said. "I made
the team that's all that matters.
"It has been a long time since I
have lost. This will burn inside me a
long time. I will see this until
Barcelona. This will rekindle a fire
that has burned down."
Santos shattered his personal-best
time by over 1.5 seconds but re-
mained modest.
"' he best person doesn't always
win," he said. "It was not a fluke. To
beat Mike is a great feeling. He is
the greatest swimmer ever"
Two other Wolverines joined
Barrowman in the finals. Redshirt
Eric Wunderlich, swimming for
Club Wolverine, once again fell
short in his attempt for a position on

this year's squad, clocking a time of
_ 2:15.87, good enough for third place.
He also finished third in the 100
breaststroke on Sunday. Michigan
rookie Steven West made a success-
ful debut at theOlympic Trials when
he managed a seventh-place finish in
the finals with a time of 2:18.60
'it was not a fluke. To
beat Mike is'a great
feeling. He is the
greatest swimmer
ever. - Olympic Trial
Champion
Roque Santos
In the women's 800-meter
freestyle, Erika Hansen of Texas
swam to victory with a time of
8:36.10. Coming in second was
Janet Evans, almost three seconds
behind Hansen when she touched in
8:39.09.
Dan Jorgensen of Team
Foxcatcher won the men's 400
freestyle, finishing with a personal-
best time of 3:49.14. His teammate
Sean Killion came in second with a
time of 3:51.47.
Crissy Ahmann-Leighton of
Arizona captured the top spot in the
Women's 100-meter butterfly in
:58.61. Summer Sanders of Stanford
qualified for the team with a runner-
up finish of :59.67.
In the evening's final event, 15
year-old Anita Nall made the team
again with a winning time of 1:09.29
in the women's 100 breaststroke.
Meagan Kleine took the second posi-
tion with a time of 1:10.08.

Roque Santos cele brates his upset victory over former Michig an swimmer Mike Barrowman in the 200 m bre ast-
stroke at the 1992 Olympic Trials in Indianapolis. It was Barrowman's first loss in the event in over three years.

The men's lacrosse team spent spring break in
Arizona looking to get a jump on its spring season and
its upcoming foes. Michigan returned from the Grand
Canyon State with two losses and two victories.
The Wolverines defeated Arizona State, 21-8, and
the Phoenix Lacrosse Club, 13-7. The losses Michigan
suffered were close contests and head coach Bob
DiGiovanni said he was pleased with the team's per-
formance.
"Losing to Arizona 10-7 and UC Santa Barbara 8-4
is respectable to say the least," DiGiovanni said.
Arizona and UCSB finished second and third, re-
spectively, in the 28-team Western Collegiate Lacrosse
League in 1991. The WCLL, a league consisting of col-
lege level teams from the Southwest, is known for its
abundance of talent.
"We don't have any excuses, but we should have
beat UCSB," DiGiovanni said. "We had six or seven
people contract a virus of some sort for the first few
days of the trip and that hurt us in the game against
UCSB.
Michigan took only 25 of its 33 team members.
Several of the eight missing players are instrumental to
the team's success.
"It's really too bad we didn't have everyone out
there because we were missing some key people on de-
fense, offense, and at attack as well," DiGiovanni said.
The trip to Arizona was intended to prepare
Michigan for its long season, as well as give an indica-
tion as to how the team would perform in a game.
"Overall, given the fact that we were short-handed
and we had some people sick the first few days, I'm

pretty happy with the outcome," DiGiovanni said.
DiGiovanni is confident that Michigan's lacrosse
team has the ability to retain the respect it already has
from its opponents.
"After last week I know we can hold our own
against anyone in the country playing at the club and
USILA (United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse As-
sociation) level," DiGiovanni added.
Michigan will get the chance to prove itself as they
face Michigan State this Saturday. The game is slated to
face off at 8:30 p.m. in Oosterbaan Fieldhouse.
'After last week I know we can
hold our own against anyone in the
country playing at the club and
USILA level.'
- Lacrosse coach
Bob DiGiovanni
Michigan State, an NCAA Division I varsity squad,
recruits heavily from the East Coast's lacrosse hotbeds
and is a perennial powerhouse in the Midwest.
"State will definitely give us our toughest game all
season in terms of skill level and physical condition,"
DiGiovanni said.
DiGiovanni knows his team is ready to face the
Spartans in what is by far the biggest rivalry for
Michigan every year.
"I'm confident that with a full complement of people
we'll give State a run for their money," DiGiovanni
said.

Men's track encounters
tough times at Big Tens
by Bruce Inosencio

Daily Sports Writer
Michigan indoor tracksters Gregg
Duffy and Desmond Howard were
the highlights at the Eastern
Michigan University Classic held in
Ypsilanti Feb. 22.
Duffy placed second in the 400-
meters with a time of 50.24, while
Howard ran a 6.34 in the 55 prelimi-
naries and a 6.38 in the semi-final.
Howard's times would have placed
him third or fourth in the final race,
but he jumped the gun and was dis-
qualified.
"Duffy's time was kind of slow
for him but we were glad to see he
took second anyway," said Michigan
coach Jack Harvey.
"It was too bad Desmond had a
false start, but at least we got to see
his times in the qualifiers and he
showed us he's ready to run."
This past weekend the men's
squad traveled to Michigan State's
Jenison Fieldhouse for the Big Ten
Championships. However, the re

sults were unfavorable, as Michigan
suffered its worst Big Ten finish
ever.
"We ran well on Friday to qualify
for finals on Saturday, but we just
didn't make it happen," Harvey said.
"We have a better team than our
finish showed, but we went to the
meet and didn't get the job done."
On a better note, Selwyn Hinds
set a school record by posting a
22.07 in the 200, capturing second
for the Wolverines.
Also, high jumper Dan Reddan
placed third by clearing 6-11 3/4.
"It was great to see Selwyn run
so well and Reddan get out of his
slump, but the rest of the team didn't
compete well at all," Harvey said.
Harvey's disappointment resulted
in a slashing of squad members yes-
terday, as a team meeting found
about twenty athletes cut from the
roster. Prior to the cut, Michigan was
carrying about 60 athletes while the
number has now been trimmed to
41.
