$ After apoor performance in dismal
conditions at.the Northern Intercolle-
Golf Course less than a month ago, the
Michigan men's golf team needed a
mange of scenery.
California did the trick.
The Wolverine golfers finished 10th
out of 20 teams at the Stanford Invita-
tional, heldat the StanfordGolfCourse
1n Stanford, Calif., this past weekend.
Michigan carded an 891(302-295-
294), led by senior Bob Henighan, who
shot a 220 (78-72-70) on the par-71
course. Henighan finished in a five-
way tie for 20th. Stanford took home
the team crown with an 848, while
medalist honors went to Pepperdine's
Kevin March, who shot a 6-under-par
Finishing in the middle of the pack
was not so bad for Michigan coach Jim
"Finishing 10th out of 20 teams
doesn't sound promising, but this was
really good tournament. There were
s9ix teams there who were ranked in the
top 25 nationally," Carmas said. "Truth
be known, I said before the meet that if
we finish' 10th or better, I'd be real
Camas also said he thought that the
tournament had brought out the best in
his struggling team, particularly senior
"Anytime we shoot 300 or below,
we are pretty competitive," said Carras
said "We shot a 302, 295,294. That's
pretty competitive. When you have
competition within your team, then
that can only improve your team. Bob
lad been struggling for a while, but I
bhink he found himself. He just wasn't
playing the caliber of golf he is capable
of. He really wanted to contribute, and
he had a great tournament."
Henighan, the team captain, attrib-
utedhis success to the hard workhehad
been putting forth.
"I was in a slump for a long time,
but I never lost control. I was working
hard," he said, "and I felt confident in
any swing (during the tournament). I
just felt I could contribute, and I got a
couple of putts to drop."
The conditions were perfect for
golfing. With temperatures in the 80's,
little wind and lots of sun, the Califor-
nia weather proved to be a boon to the
"It was close to 90 degrees out
there," said freshman Kyle Dobbs, who
tied for 30th place overall with a 222
(75-74-73). "It was awesome. The
course was in great shape."
Being the final meet of the Wolver-
ines' fall season, Carras commented
that he was pleased with his club's
"I'm rather happy right now. We
have a young and fairly inexperienced
team. We played two true freshmen
throughout the year," he said. "We're
.basically made up of a lot of freshmen
andsophomores. We have two seniors,
Henighanand Kyle (Condon), but Kyle
has been somewhat erratic thus far."
As for the spring season, which
starts in April and concludes in mid-
May, Carras stated thathe had tojuggle
the schedulearoundso the team will be
able to play in better conditions.
"We'reonly allowed to compete on
U days out of the year, because of
CAA rules," Carras said. "So, in-
stead of starting in late March or early
April when the weather isn't all that
great, we added on acouple of meets in
the fall season instead, to avoid the
inclement weather. We'll still be keep-
ing up with the weights and the condi-
tioning in the offseason, however."

Tankers invade Chicago, top Northwestern
by RYAN WHITE
DAILY SPORTS WRITER
Chicago- home of the Sears Tower,
Wrigley Field, former NBA star
Michael Jordan and Niketown - was
invaded this past weekend.
It wasn't invaded by another city,
or even by aliens, but by the Michigan
women's swimming and diving team.
The Wolverines were in Chicago,
or up the Lake Michigan coast in
Evanston to be more exact, to compete
in their first standard dual meet of the
year againstNorthwestern Saturday and
in the Northwestern Relays Sunday.
Michigan did swim against Michi-
gan State Oct.16, but that was a double-
distance meet in which all the lengths
are doubled, so Saturday marked the
first regular meet of the year.
The meet also gave the Wolverines
their first opportunity this season to
"It was a very good team bonding
experience,"fteshman Anne Malley said.
It was also a very good team win-
ning experience, as Michigan defeated
"It was a good experience, though
not everyone swam their best times. It
was good foreveryone to swim against
agood team like Northwestern," fresh-
man Lisa Butzlaff said.
The Michigan swimmers were led
by junior Alecia Humphrey as well as
a couple of new faces, freshmen Anne
Kampfe and Rachel Gustin. All won
Humphrey was tops in the 100-and
200-yard backstroke, and the 100-yard
butterfly; Kampfe took top honors in
the 200-yard butterfly, 500-yard
freestyle, and the 400-yard individual
medly; while Gustin won the 100- and
200-yard breaststroke and the 200-yard
For Kampfe, who grew up three
hours away in Decatur, Ill., it was a
homecoming of sorts.
"I swim in that pool in the summer
but it was different swimming there for
Michigan," she said, "and to swim as
well as I did was an added bonus."
Michigan also recieved a winning
who won the 1000-yard freesyle event.
The Wolverine divers also fared
well, sweeping the top three spots in
both the 1-and 3-meter events. Sopho-
more Carrie Zarse won the 1-meter
while senior Martha Wenzel was tops
on the 3-meter board.
"Overall it was good for early in the
season," Zarsesaid. "Webasicallywent
there for the swim team. We knew the
meet would be a lot closer if we didn't
go. Plus a win against Northwestern
early in the season is very good for the
team in general."
Sunday at the relay meet, the Wol-
verines finished with 128 points but
came in a close second to Northwest-
em, which finished with 130 points.
Kampfe and Humphrey teamed up
with Beth Jacson to win the 300-yard
butterfly relay. The pair also combined
with Gustin and firshman Melisa Stone to
win the 400-yard medley relay, and along
with NavtaandGustin finished firstin the
400yard individual medley relay.
Other teams in the meet were Wis-
consin, which finish third, Northern
Illinois, which finished fourth, and
Wisconsin-Milwaukee, which came in
