The Michigan Daily-Sports Monday- December 7, 1992-Page 7
Steve Duttenhoffer and the Michigan swimming and diving team cruised in this weekend's Speedo Collegiate Cup at Canham Auditorium. The
Wolverines amassed 1,065 points overall, nearly 400 more than second-place Iowa, while setting three Canham pool records in the process.
Men sweep past field in record-setting weekend

Just right of the 10-meter diving
platform in Canham Natatorium is a
board listing the POOL RECORDS.
Three on the men's side are in need
of an update after this weekend's
Speedo Collegiate Cup.
In a show of complete domi-
nance, the Michigan men's swim-
ming and diving team destroyed the
field beating second place Iowa by
almost 400 points. In the process,
three Canham Natatorium records
"That was good (breaking three
records) considering they had Big
Ten's here four years ago," Michi-
gan assistant coach Alex Braunfeld
said. "Breaking those records four
years later and not one kid shaved
on the team, that's really good."
The Wolverines (1,065 points)
took a commanding lead on Thurs-
day and kept extending it throughout
the entire competition. There was
nothing Iowa, Bowling Green, or
Wright State could do.
The Michigan 200 yard medley
relay team started the record break-
ing performance in the first event on
Friday night. The team of Greg
Gooch, Eric Wunderlich, Tom Hay
and Gustavo Borges came in at
1:32.71 breaking the old record held

How's this, Barry? You've got 162
games to play next year - unless
you guys go on strike against those
evil owners or something - and you
know what you could do? You could
buy a brand new Lexus automobile
after every game and still have some
money left over for gas. Drive to the
game in red. Go home in white. And
for the seventh-inning stretch they
could raffle off your old car to some

In the next men's race, the
Wolverines senior co-captain Eric
Namesnik broke the record in the
400 yard individual medley. In the
process, Namesnik met the NCAA
championship qualifying time
allowing him to swim at the NCAA
championships in Indianapolis.
"For me, qualifying was the
goal," Namesnik said. "I didn't
know if I would be able to do it. The
times are pretty hard to do. I felt af-
ter the first day of the competition,
in the 200 IM, I swam a pretty good
time. I thought that I might have a
chance to make the cut. Making the
time now is definately a bonus."
Namesnik also won the 200 in-
dividual medley and was able to
meet the NCAA consideration time
with a win in the 1,650 freestyle.
Because of his previous qualification
in the 400 IM, Namesnik will also
be able to swim this event in the
NCAAs if he chooses.
The final record fell on the last
day of competition in the 200 back-
stroke. In the morning qualifying
heats, Jim Josberger of Wright State
broke former Michigan swimmer
Steve Bigelow's pool record. How-
ever, Josberger had a little less than
eight hours to saver it. In the cham-
schoolchildren can know when to
turn on the TV to watch you play.

pieces of bazooka gum (5 cents) and
drive around in your Lexus throwing
them to the Little Leaguers.
- You could buy 653,327 copies
of the latest CD from Marky Mark
and the Funky Bunch ($10.97) and
have the front-office hand them out
at the will-call window.
- You could help finance a dome
for Candlestick Park. That way you
won't have to play in the cold, and
those fly balls will be much easier to
track down. (You've got to keep
your own interests in mind, Barry. It
won't look good if you're dropping
pop-ups out there.)
p You could buy 5,555,813 boxes
of Rice-A-Roni ($1.29), the San
Francisco treat, and feed the
homeless in the Bay area. (You and
your family could eat quite well, I'm
sure, off the interest.)

a great place to throw a party.)

pionship finals, Michigan freshman
Royce Sharp beat Josberger and his
record by well over a second.
"That was great (the record),"
Sharp said. "That was good for this
time of the year. That is my best un-
shaved time. So I'm happy with
In addition to the pool records,
many other Michigan swimmers had
good weekends. Sophomore
freestyler Gustavo Borges won three
individual events and anchored two
winning relays. Eric Wunderlich
also came up big, winning the 100
and 200 breaststrokes and swimming
the breaststroke leg on two relays.
Two individual wins by senior co-
captain Brian Gunn also helped pro-
pel the Wolverines to the victory.
The rest of the teams did not
challenge the Wolverines. Iowa's
Rafal Szukala did have an impres-
sive meet. Szukala won both the 100
and 200 butterfly.
Even though the Wolverine
swimmers coasted to the win, they
still have a long way to go before the
"Seeing the results from other
meets around the country there were
a lot of fast times in comparison to
ours," Namesnik said. "Maybe that
will motivate the guys to do a better
job preparing for a meet."

Whalers. I think they're worth
somewhere between $40-50 million.

The possibilities are endless. But
here's one last idea:
Braunfeld also thought the
Wolverines have to improve.
"We need to be a little bit better
in the morning," Braunfeld said. "In
the big meets, unless you swim well
in the morning, you don't swim at
all at night. We need to be a little bit
better on relays."
The large point disparity was also
helped by the performance of the
divers. Four Michigan divers quali-
fied for the NCAA zone meet in
both the one and three meter compe-
titions. Alex Bogaerts won the one-
meter springboard and Eric Lesser
pulled out the three-meter. Both
qualified for the NCAAs along with
Jeff Jozwiak and Abel Sanchez.

ond in the one-meter and third in the

Records fell at Canham Natato-
rium over the weekend as the Michi-
gan women's swimming and diving
team took first place in the Speedo
Cup East Invitational last Thursday
In all, 10 pool records were bro-
ken during the competition. The
Wolverines accounted for six of
them, while Arizona State grabbed
the other four.
Not surprisingly, Michigan won
the competition with 907.5 points.
ASU took second with 866 points.
Bowling Green, Wright State, Iowa,
and Northern Michigan placed third
For the Wolverines, three swim-
mers qualified for the NCAA meet in
several events. Kathy Deibler met
the standard in the 500-yard freestyle
Thursday with a time of 4 minutes,
46.80 seconds. Alecia Humphrey
earned the 100 backstroke spot in the
400 medley relay with a :55.14 per-
formance. Friday, Lara Hooiveld
qualified with a 1:02.30 clocking in
the 100 breaststroke.
Humphrey also qualified in Fri-
day's 100 backstroke finals in
:54.76, bettering her earlier NCAA-
qualifying time of :55.25 in prelim-
inaries. With her performance in
both the preliminaries and the finals,
Humphrey twice broke her 1991
Canham pool record of :56.48.
Both Hooiveld and Humphrey had
outstanding performances Saturday
as well. Hooiveld qualified in the
200 breaststroke in 2:13.20, break-
ing Wolverine Ann Colloton's 1989
pool record of 2:14.64. Humphrey
made NCAA cuts in the 200 back-
stroke with a time of 1:57.30, break-
ing the new Canham pool record she
had set earlier that day with 1:59.03
in the preliminaries.
Humphrey, Deibler, Hooiveld,
Mindy Gehrs, Beth Jackson, Jennifer
Almeida and Kirsten Silvester also
made NCAA qualifying times in
The Wolverines said they were
very pleased with their performances.
"I'm so happy about what's go-
ing on because this means that I
don't have to concentrate on making
cuts," Hooiveld said. "It just takes
the whole pressure off."
Coach Jim Richardson made sim-
ilar remarks about his team's per-
"Last time we had this meet was
three years ago," Richardson said.
"Arizona State came in there and
swam really, really fast, while we
swam kind of OK. This year, we
just swam so well.
"I don't think we would have
swum that fast if Arizona State
hadn't given the performance that
they did. It's the kind of situation
that lifts everybody up to a higher
level when you have that kind of fast
Richardson also expressed plea-
sure with the number of records set
in the meet.
"We just had the guy in this last
week re-doing the record board be-
cause we wanted it up to date for the
meet, and the women's side of the
board has just been destroyed again,"
Richardson said. "We're going to
keep that guy over there in Plant
Operations busy this year I hope."
The Michigan divers also per-
formed well. Margie Stoll, Cinna
mon Woods, Martha Wenzel and
Carrie Zarse met the NCAA qualify-
ing standards in the three-meter board
competition. Stoll, Woods, Zarse
and Jennifer Rotondo also qualified
for the NCAA-qualifying diving
meet in the one-meter board.
In the platform event, Woods,
Wenzel, Stoll, Zarse, Rotondo, and
Erin O'Connor took first through
sixth place, respectively.
Coach Dick Kimball compli-
mented the divers after the meet.
"This is one of those meets
where you just try to get your score
to (make cuts)." Kimball said. "But
I'm real pleased with (the divers)."
