If you notice that some usually
mild-mannered students in your
classes are walking a little taller and
smiling a, little wider this week,
chances are that they are members of
the Michigan water polo team. After
sweeping the 1992 Wolverine
Invitational this weekend, Michigan
is one giant step closer to their sec-
ond consecutive Big Ten title.
The Wolverines defeated Mich-
igan State, Northwestern, Indiana,
Ohio State and Purdue en route to
winning the Invite, bringing their
record to 10-1-1 in the Big Ten.

was victorious.by an average margin
of nine points per game.

The Wolverines' strongest
competitors in the Big Ten,
Michigan State and Northwestern,
were also their biggest challenges
this weekend. Yet, Michigan beat
both teams soundly, by scores of 12-
5 and 13-5, respectively.
"We weren't taking anything for
granted," senior co-captain Aaron
Frame said. "We knew North-
western and State would be really
tough. They have a lot of talent. It
was a big confidence booster know-
ing that we can compete."
Michigan's depth of talented
players was a key to its success.
"We're very well-balanced.
With a young team, we're not going
to have one or two people who re-
ally stand out," Russell said.
"Everybody's still learning their
role, and because of that the scor-
ing's going to be spread out. That
makes us dangerous, because no-
body knows who to guard."
