One of the key elements for a
successful swimming team is endur-
ance. The Michigan women's swim-
ming team displayed its stamina and
came away with a pair of victories
this weekend.
The Wolverines' journey began
Friday night at Iowa City in a two-
day meet with Iowa, Wisconsin and
Penn State. Alecia Humphrey led the
way for Michigan with first-place
victories in the 100-yard backstroke,
200 backstroke and 200 individual
Kirsten Silvester was victorious
in the 200 butterfly and anchored the
400 freestyle relay team (Nicole
Williamson, Jennifer Almeida, Amy
Bonhert) that finished third.
The team ended the opening
session with a one-point deficit be-
hind Penn State, the lone team ahead
of Michigan.

Saturday, the Wolverines came
out charging again. Michigan took
the 400-yard medley relay, followed
by first-place finishes from Karen
Barnes (1650 freestyle), Humphrey
(200 breaststroke), Beth Jackson
(200 backstroke) and Mindy Gehrs
(400 individual medley) to take the
"We had some outstanding
times," Michigan coach Jim Rich-
ardson said. "Mindy Gehrs swam
very well. This is one of the best
meets we've ever had at Michigan at
this point of the season."
After the meet, the squad headed
to Evanston for Sunday's North-
western Relays, where the tankers
won nine out 28 races to take the
overall title in the invitational.

good," Richardson said. "I was very

Tonight the Michigan women's
volleyball team takes a break from
the heated competition of the Big
Ten as it travels to relaxing South
Bend, Ind., to take on Notre Dame.
This match presents an opportunity
for the Wolverines to put all of the
stress associated with conference
play out of their minds, right?
Not a chance.
In what may amount to a more
important match than most confer-
ence bouts, the seventh-ranked Wol-
verines hope to knock off the Fight-
ing Irish, who are the No. 6 ranked
team in the region. At season's end,
these rankings are the focus of the
NCAA tournament selection com-
"Usually, the top seven teams
from each region advance to the
NCAA's," outside hitter Aimee
Smith said. "This match is especially
important to us."
One disadvantage facing the
Wolverines is the lack of inform-
ation they possess about the Fighting
"We haven't seen any videotapes
on them, and we usually have that
opportunity," sophomore setter Julie
Scherer said. "What we do know is
that they do have two very good

outside hitters."
With outside hitter Hayley
Lorenzen out indefinitely with
mononucleosis, the Wolverines have
concentrated their efforts upon
fitting players into the rotation this
week. Smith has moved to
Lorenzen's spot while hitter Chris
White has filled in admirably in the
middle for Smith.
"I have moved over to the right
side, where I hit right of Tarnisha,"
Smith said. "This has been kind of a
blessing in disguise for both Chris
and me, since she is a good middle
player, and I will be playing on the
right side after this year, until I
Michigan players are quick to
point out that the Big Ten season
does not take a back seat to the
regional rankings, however. Because
the selection committee considers
the conference rankings as well as
regional rankings, the Wolverines
cannot lose focus on their difficult
conference matches just ahead.
"After this game we have Penn
State and Ohio State, which are just
as good as Notre Dame, if not
better," Scherer said. "Our focus this
whole season has been on the Big
Ten, and since we are tied for fourth
right now, these next few days are
extremely important for us.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) -
Magic Johnson, who returned to the
Los Angeles Lakers on Sept. 29 after
missing last season with the AIDS
virus, said today he is retiring for
Johnson announced his decision
just four days before the beginning
of the NBA season.
"After much thought and talking
it over with Cookie and my family, I
decided I will retire - for good -
from the Lakers," Johnson said in a
statement issued by the team.
"It has become obvious that the
various controversies surrounding
my return are taking away from both
basketball as a sport and the larger
issue of living with HIV for me and

the many people affected."
Several NBA stars, including
fellow Dream Team member Karl
Malone, have expressed concern
about playing with Johnson for fear
of contracting the virus. One NBA
general manager, speaking only on
condition that he not be identified by
name, told The New York Times
that Johnson should step aside to
avoid any controversy.
A source close to Johnson who
spoke on the condition of anonymity
confirmed that Johnson's retirement
was related to the controversy that
continued to.surround his comeback,
and not his health.
The source referred to an article
in the New York Times on Sunday

that examined the hazards of playing
basketball with Johnson as an
example of what was bothering the
"It was not the same for him," the
source said. "It was not fun for him
"My return to the NBA and play
in the Olympics has proven that a
person with HIV can continue to
lead an active, productive life, par-
ticipating in athletics or any other
endeavor," Johnson's statement said.
"I will continue to lead an active life
- like so many others with HIV -
but my energies will now be directed
to other avenues."
