'i' baseball looks to
break even vs. Siena

by Tim Rardin
Daily Baseball Writer
After pushing its record above
the .500 barrier for the first time this
season against Minnesota Saturday,
the Michigan baseball team prompt-
ly dropped the final three games of
the series to fall to 15-17 overall,
and 7-5 in the Big Ten. However,
with three non-conference games
this week, including today's 1 p.m.
doubleheader with Siena Heights at
Fisher Stadium, Michigan can again
expect to return to that elusive mark.
Siena Heights, an NAIA school
which enters today's twinbill with an
18-23 record after playing 10 dou-
bleheaders in only 11 days, has
never beaten Michigan in 14 tries.
Ever. Still, Saints coach Gordie

Theisen treats his team's two games
with the Division I Wolverines just
like any other game.
"It's a thrill for our players to
play against a team like Michigan,
but our big games are usually in our
conference, just like Michigan's big
games are in the Big Ten," Theisen
said. "Like any competitive team,
we're going into it like we do every
game, with the goal of playing hard
and trying to win. Playing a team
like Michigan, there's definitely not
going to be a motivation problem."
Once again, the non-conference
part of their schedule will allow the
Wolverines to work on the funda-
mentals of the game without the
pressure of Big Ten play. Assistant

The Michigan baseball team will attempt to even its record today in a non-conference doubleheader against Siena Heights College at Fisher Stadium. The
Wolverines currently boast a 15-17 record, 7-5 in the Big Ten.

The Phillips 66 National Diving Cham-
pionship lands in Ann Arbor this week as
over 100 of America's premiere divers
compete for their final opportunity to qua-
lify for the 1992 U.S. Olympic Trials.
Thirteen of the participating divers are
currently under the direction of Michigan's

and two male Olympic hopefuls - Julie
Farrell-Ovenhouse, Wendy Lucero-
Schayes, Cokey Smith, Mark Lenzi and
Chuck Wade.
Farrell-Ovenhouse is expected to be
among the top three or four challengers on
the women's spring board this week. While
Lucero-Schayes, a nine-time U.S. spring-
board champion and 1988 Olympian, is ex-
pected to perform well from both the 1-and
3-meter boards. Smith, a Michigan gradu-
ate, is one of only nine women divers to
qualify in all three events. Since 1989,
Smith has captured two Olympic Festival
titles and has qualified to compete on both
the 1991 World Championship and World
Cup teams.
Michigan is represented by three women
divers, including seniors Lisa Cribari and
Julie Greyer and sophomore Cinnamon
Woods.
Cribari has had a highly successful ca-
reer at Michigan and was the only
Wolverine diver to qualify for the NCAA
Championships this year. Cribari will com-
pete from the 1-meter board, while Greyer
and Woods will compete from the 10-meter
board.
The men's roster includes six of
Kimball's divers, three who are affiliated
with Michigan. Rob Silverman, a senior
from Michigan, will compete from the plat-
form, while Steve Hamerski and Lee
Michaud, recent University graduates, will
compete from the platform and the 1-and 3-

meter boards, respectively.
Mark Lenzi is the most likely

of

Kimball's male divers to qualify this week.
Lenzi is the current U.S. 1-meter champion
and a two-time U.S. NCAA Springboard
Champion. This week Lenzi will be com-
peting from the 1- and 3-meter boards.
Tom Mulhern, the second oldest com-
petitor at age 32, qualified to compete in
the 1- and 3- meter events. Mulhern is a
police officer from Roseville, Mich., in his

ate, is one of only nine

Chuck Wade, is one of only fourteen
men to qualify in all three events. Wade, a
Clemson graduate, has been competing
since 1983 and earned a silver medal from
the platform at the 1991 Phillips 66
Outdoor Championships.
Today's competition begins at 10 a.m.
with the women's 3-meter semifinals and
will continue at 3 p.m. with the men's

Big Ten opposition continues to
be not much more than a warmup for
the defending Midwest champion
Michigan women's waterpolo team.
The Wolverines thrashed all three of
their opponents over the weekend in
Madison.
The tourney sweep pushed Mich-
igan's overall record to 16-6, and
12-0 in the Big Ten. Illinois, Wis-
consin, and Northwestern amounted
to little more than cardboard obs-
tructions for Michigan's powerhouse
assault.
The Wolverines had an easy time
with the Fighting Illini, beating
them, 16-6. The host Badgers were
out of their league against the Wol-
verines, as Michigan won, 17-2. The
Wildcats were not much of a chal-
lenge either, as Michigan dealt
Northwestern a 14-3 white-washing.
Michigan's closest game came in its
rematch with Illinois. The Wol-
verines held off the Illini for a 9-8
victory.
For the second straight weekend,

Lori Barnard led the attack for the
Wolverines. She found the net 15
times, giving her 33 goals -for the
past two tournaments. Two-time All-
American Candice Quinn polished
off 11 goals. Jeni McNiven added
seven goals.
Michigan coach Scott Russell
was very pleased with a goal from
Kathy Rogers in the Northwestern
game. The goal was significant de-
spite the lopsided score, because ac-
cording to Russell it was a "textbook

type goal."
In the second Illinois game,
Christy Irish scored a key goal in the
fourth quarter to make it 9-7. The
score came with about a minute left
to put the game out of reach. "She's
got an excellent shooting arm,"
Russell said.
Russell was not at all concerned
that Michigan had a tight match with
Illinois.
"After you beat a team, 16-6, you

want to work on some new things,"
Russell said. "We were never con-
cerned about losing the game (the
Illinois rematch). We have games
that might be extensions of prac-
tices; some of the things we tried
worked, others didn't."
In the second Illinois game, the
Wolverines worked on a zone de-
fense. "You work on different types
of defenses so the opposition doesn't
know what to expect," Russell said.

'M' crew conquers opponent, elements

by Greg Richardson

The crosswind at Ford Lake tam-
pered with the Michigan rowing
team's times, but it did nothing to
interfere with its 8-2 explosion over
Michigan State.
Michigan's success this past
Saturday was no surprise to novice
men's coach Mike Caviston. At the
moment, the Wolverines are simply
superior to the Spartans.
"We did well against State, and,

frankly, we expected too," Caviston
said.
The varsity men's eight was not
much of a contest between the two
teams. The Spartans had to put to-
gether a makeshift unit which in-
cluded two novice rowers, and one
of the coaches, while the Michigan
boat was led by captain Darryl Lan-
inga. Caviston stated that the main
reason there was even a race in this
category was that Michigan varsity
coach Will Brewster convinced
State coach Steve Eyke that it was
good for both teams.
Look your best
for Easter!!

Eyke was critical of his program,
and commented on how far behind
Michigan the Spartans are.
"Michigan State is years behind
the development of rowing at
Michigan, with a smaller pool of ath-
letes who work hard on developing
fours into varsity level," Eyke said.
The Michigan varsity heavy-
weight does not usually row fours.
Because they only had one race with
State in this category, Brewster de-
cided to have his crew race a piece
all by itself.
In the lightweight men's varsity
fours Michigan took first and second
among the four boats, with the
Wolverines pulling out a neck and
neck finish over the Spartans for
second.
The Michigan women's varsity
eight pulled out a strong showing, by
taking first and second place in that
event. The only races that Michigan
lost were the novice women's B
eight and the varsity women's four.
