Wouda: he coulda,
he shoulda, he dd
by Brett Johnson
Daily Sports Writer,
Marcel Wouda's debut for the Michigan men's swimming and diving
team was a good one. Wouda, the Netherlands record-holder in both the 200-
and 400-meter individual medley, became eligible to swim for the
Wolverines just before break. He made his debut in the Stanford meet,
which pitted the nation's top two teams against each other.
"It was awesome (getting to swim with the team)," Wouda said. "I've
been with the team since fall term. I would be at the pool but not get to
swim. I finally felt like I was part of the team."
At Stanford, Wouda finished second to Cardinal swimmer Derek
Weatherford in the 200-yard IM. Weatherford was the national champion in
the event last year. Wouda also won the 500-yard freestyle at Stanford and
led off for the 400 freestyle relay that placed second.
At California Saturday, Wouda won the 500 freestyle again and placed
second in the 1000 freestyle . His time of 9:07.21 in the 1000 free set a new
school record but was not enough to win the event or please Wouda.
"I did OK (at the meets)," Wouda said. "I won the one event, but I
personally feel I should have won the other one."
RECORD BREAKING: Speaking of records, three Canham Natatorium
records have been broken this season, all at the Speedo Collegiate Cup in
December. Erik Namesnik broke Minnesota's Paul Nelson's 1990 record
(3:51.50) by swimming a 3:50.74. The 200-yard medley relay team of
Greg Gooch, Eric Wunderlich, Tom Hay, and Gustavo Borges
(1:32.71) also broke a record set in 1990 by Oakland University (1:32.91).
The third record broken was in the 200 backstroke finals by Michigan
freshman Royce Sharp (1:46.60).
NCAA BOUND: Michigan already has qualified one swimmer for the
NCAA national championship meet in Indianapolis this coming March.
Namesnik's record breaking 400 IM performance in the Speedo Collegiate
Cup was good enough to qualify him for the meet in that event. Namesnik
also met the NCAA consideration time in the 1650 freestyle. This paired
with his qualification in the 400 IM will allow him to race the event at the
NCAAs if he chooses.
JUMPING FOR JOY: The men's diving team has gotten off to a
splendid start. Alex Bogearts, Jeff Jozwiak, Abel Sanchez, Brad
Lambert and Eric Lesser have all qualified for the NCAA diving zone
meet in both the one- and three-meter springboard events. Over the weekend
the divers swept by Stanford and California. At Cal, the divers finished one
through four on both boards, and at Stanford, they took the top three
positions on the one-meter and the first, second, and fourth spots on the
HONORED: Namesnik was honored for his performance at the Speedo
Collegiate Cup by being named Big Ten Swimmer of the month for
December. The award was Namesnik's second such of his career.
GOLDEN HELP: Gold medalist, world record holder, and former
Michigan swimmer Mike Barrowman has returned to school to finish up
his work on his degree. However, Barrowman has also been helping out
with the team.

Iowa cager Street dies in car accident
The Daily Iowan
Chris Street, an Iowa junior and
member of the Hawkeye basketball
team, was killed in a car accident
Tuesday night as he returned from a
team meal in Iowa City.
Wednesday's game against
Northwestern, scheduled for 7 p.m.
at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, was
postponed. Saturday's game at Penn
State is tentative.
Sports information director
George Wine said Street, who would
have been 21 on Feb. 2, was return-
ing to campus when his car collided
with a dump truck at about 7 p.m. on
Highway 1, north of I-80.
Coach Tom Davis and his staff
met with the team, which had been
scheduled to practice, late into the
night Tuesday. .
Street, a 6-foot-8 forward from
Indianola, Iowa, led 14th-ranked
Iowa in rebounding with 9.5 per
game and was scoring 14.5 points
per contest. He was named the CBS
co-player of the game in Saturday's
loss at Duke after he led the
Hawkeyes in scoring with 14 points
and grabbed eight rebounds.
Street also set the all-time Iowa
record for consecutive free throws in
the game at 34.
Street, who was a business major,
made an early commitment to Iowa
while at Indianola High School, cit-
ing fierce loyalty to the Hawkeyes.
He was the Gatorade Circle of
Champions Player of the Year, and a
Hoop Scoop top 90 prospect who re-
ceived letters from schools all over
the country. But Street decided early
to attend Iowa.
"I got a ton of letters," Street told
The Daily Iowan in 1991. "But I
really couldn't tell who recruited me
hard because I said that I wasn't in-
terested. I was going to Iowa."
Street was posting his best num-
bers as a Hawkeye this season. Dur-
ing the Duke game, CBS analyst
Billy Packer said of Street: "There's
a guy who could play in the NBA."
