Swimmers of all ages lead victory wave

by Jaeson Rosenfeld
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's swim-
ming team flexed its muscles in its
first meet of the season at Canham
Natatorium. The Wolverines took
the top three spots in four of seven
races on their way to an 87-42
victory over arch-rival Michigan
State.
The meet, which featured events
at twice their conventional distance,
saw contributions by both young and
old, with Wolverines from each class
winning at least one race.
Beth Jackson, a freshman from
Cincinnati, picked up the victory in
the 800-meter individual medley in a

time of 11:13.66. Jackson is a
member of a freshman class which
will try to pick up the slack
following the graduation of all-
Americans Katherine Creighton,
Jennifer Love, and Michelle Swix.
After his first look at his recruiting
class in meet competition, coach Jim
Richardson was cautiously opti-
mistic.
"It doesn't appear that anyone is
going to step out of the freshman
class immediately," Richardson said.
"I think there will be three or four
Big Ten finalists by the time they're
done."
Lara Hooiveld and Alecia
Humphrey led the sophomore class.
Hooiveld contributed a top finish in
the 400m breaststroke in 5:45.33.
Humphrey bested the 400m back-
stroke field in 4:52.28. Humphrey
thought the double-distance format
actually was to her advantage.
"I like the 400 back. I am more of

a middle-distance swimmer than a
sprinter," Humphrey said. The
sophomore then explained another
advantage of the different format.
"It tells you where you are in
your training, because if you have a
good base, you don't die."
Humphrey said. "I think I am a lot
further than last year."
Junior Kathy Deibler garnered
the 400m freestyle victory in
4:31.10. Classmate Kate Girard may
have thought she was never going to
leave the pool in a marathon
24:37.76 triumph in the 2000m free.
Girard attributed her success to su-
perior preparation.
"This was our hardest week of
training all year," Girard said. "We
were pleased with how we swam."
Senior Missy McCracken served
double duty by winning the 400m
butterfly and the 800m freestyle re-
lay with teammates Deibler, Nicole
Williamson, and Kirsten Silvester.

Freshman Beth Jackson swims in the 800 IM against MSU. Jackson finished first with a time of 11:13.66.

How true. This is the same
Michael Jordan who punched center
Will Perdue in practice because Per-
due had the nerve to set a pick on his
royal Airness. How dare you, Will?
But Will was never chastised by
Jordan the way some of his other
teammates were.
Remember when Jordan com-
manded his teammates to stop pass-
ing the ball to Bill Cartwright in the
fourth quarter of games? Or when he
*reportedly told Horace Grant that if
he "wasn't so stupid" the team

would have won more games? Grant
had just as much to do with the Bulls
winning a second title (or a first title,
for that matter) as anyone.
Now you tell me who's being
stupid. The hard-working power for-
ward, or the all-World guard who
didn't show up to this year's training
camp until last Friday? Because he
was resting, Jordan said. That's why
he wasn't in camp. Funny, he had
enough energy to fly out to Califor-
nia to tape some Nike ads while he
was resting. Seriously.
They don't keep stats in the pre-
season. Michael Jordan knows that.
Bo knows lots of things. Michael
knows stats.

Like when he sat out a game
against Cleveland late last season af-
ter coach Phil Jackson said he was
only going to play him 15 or 20
minutes. Jordan refused, wouldn't
play at all, because he didn't want to
ruin his scoring average.
Or how about when Jordan as-
sumed the Bulls' point guard posi-
tion for awhile, and his numbers
rose. He turned a few triple-doubles.

Do you know why? Because every
game he checked with the scoring
table during time-outs and dead-ball
situations to see how close he was
getting. Seriously.
This guy is getting to be too
much. And the fiasco of the $57,000
check is just the latest chapter.
Will it be the last?
Don't bet on it.
