Borges highlights 10th-place finish

by Kimberly DeSempelaere
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan men's swimming
and diving team returned from the
NCAA Championships in Indian-
apolis yesterday with a sombering,
but certainlysnot disappointing,
tenth-place finish.
For many swimming teams, the
championship meet is the highlight
of the season, but the Wolverines
had already reached their season
high at the1992 Olympic Trials.
Michigan coach Jon Urbanchek
wasn't surprised with their finish be-
cause the team had spent most of
their energy and mental focus on
performing well at the Olympic
Trials.
"They could not perform up to
their best," Urbanchek said. "But the
NCAAs were not the most important
part of the year for us. Olympic trials
only come around once in a while.
The NCAA meet happens every
year."
Michigan's star frosh, Gustavo
Borges, a 1992 Olympian swimmer
for his home country of Brazil, was
the only Wolverine who has been
focusing his energy on the NCAA
meet all season. Borges' work payed
off, as he was the only individual
swimmer for Michigan to place first
in an event. Borges took both the
100 (1:34.66), and 200 (1:34.66)
yard freestyle events. He also fin-
ished fourth in the 50 freestyle
(19.80).
"This morning I was swimming
pretty good in the water," Borges
said of his win in the 200 freestyle.
"I tried to put a good effort in my
first 50 to stay with the front group.
After the third 50, I saw I was ahead,
so I just closed my eyes and went for
it."
The Brazilian took the wind out
of ten-time title winner, Iowa's
Arthur Wojdat. The Iowa senior fin-
ished just one one-hundredth of a

ish 16th in the 200, and 22nd in the
500 freestyle.
Stanford finished the meet in first
place with 632 points, almost dou-
bling Texas' second-place finish of
356. UCLA took third (310), fol-

'We were hoping we
could stay in the top
six. But we put most
of our time and mental
and physical energy
into the Olympics'
- Men's swimming
coach Jon Urbanchek

:

Michigan swimmer Brian Gunn was a member of the 800-yard freestyle
relay team that finished second in this weekend's NCAA Championships.

second behind Borges (1:34.67) in
the 200 freestyle. Urbanchek was
pleased with Borges' performance.
"It was a pretty exciting event for
Gustavo. He has been focused on the
NCAAs and he hasn't had any dis-
tractions," Urbanchek said.
Wolverines Rodney VanTassel,
Borges, Tom Hay and Noel Strauss
captured sixth in the 400-yard
freestyle.
Michigan's relay team of Steve'
Bigelow, Steve West, Hay and
Borges took seventh in the 400-yard
medley, while the 800-yard freestyle

relay composed of VanTassell,
Kevin Glass, Brian Gunn and Borges
finished second.
Swimming individually for the
Wolverines was Brian Gunn, who
finished eighth in the 200 butterfly,
and senior Eric Bailey, who finished
10th in the 200 butterfly. Teammate
Steven Duttenhofer, placed right be-
hind Bailey with a 22nd-place finish.
FroshWest turned in a 14th place
finish in the 200 breaststroke and
22nd in the 100 breaststroke.
VanTassell was disqualified in the
100 freestyle, but came back to fin-

lowed by California (265.5), Arizona
(238), Minnesota (217.5) and
Southern Cal (211).
Michigan, with 184 points, easily
outdistanced its closest competitor,
Tennessee (150).
"We were hoping we could stay
in the top six, with the person
(Borges) we had," Urbanchek said.
"But we put most of our time and,
mental and physical energy into the
Olympics. We made our bed, now
we have to lie in it."
Urbanchek is looking forward to
next year's season. Joining the team
will be first-year student Ray Sharp,
who has already qualified to com-
pete in the Olympics. Also return-
ing will be the red-shirted, Eric
Wunderlich and Eric Namesnik.
Namesnik just missed qualifying in0
two events at the Olympic trials,
placing third in both events.
"The team has very good poten-
tial," Urbanchek said. "With Sharp
and the two freshmen we dropped
this year, we should be really good."

Daily Baseball Writer
Entering last weekend's double-
doubleheader series at Purdue (12-9,
1-3 Big Ten), the Michigan baseball
team had won only three games in
fifteen tries. However, after the four-
game set, the Wolverines had man-
aged to equal their season total, win-
ning the last three games of the
weekend to move their season record
to 6-13, and 3-1 in the Big Ten.
In Saturday's doubleheader, the
Wolverines received two strong per-
formances from its starting pitchers,
but could only muster one victory in
the pair of 3-2 games.
The first game played stage to a
solid pitching duel between
Michigan righthander Eric

Heintschel and the Boilermakers'
Sherald Clinkscales. Both pitchers
worked identical complete-game
four-hitters, but two wildpitches in
the sixth-inning by Heintschel would
be the difference, as Purdue col-
lected two runs to break the 1-1 tie.
The Wolverines loaded the bases
in the seventh and final inning, but
could only get one run across.
Lefty Chris Newton started the
nightcap for Michigan, but would
need the help of Bryan Santo, who
earned his first victory of the season,
and Todd Marion, who recorded his
16th career save to break Greg
Everson's Wolverine record, in shut-
ting down the Boiler bats.
In Sunday's game, Michigan sent

righthander Dennis Konuszweski, w
who was looking for his first victory
of the season, to the mound. The
righthander responded, pitching the
complete seven innings, while giving
up only three hits and two runs in the
Wolverines' 4-2 victory.
The Michigan bats found new
life, as three Wolverines collected
two hits apiece. Timmerman went 2-
for-3 with an RBI, while Kevin
Crociata, who also had an RBI, and
Scott Niemiec both added a pair of
singles.
The Wolverine offense continued
its resurgence in the second game
Sunday, with a six-run sixth-inning
to put the game out of reach en route
to their 9-6 victory.
