Tankers survive Minnesota test in season-opening meet
By BRETT JOHNSON
DAILY SPORTS WRITER
Although the No. 3 Michigan
men's swimming and diving team
came away with two victories this
weekend, things didn't go as well as
the team had hoped they would. After
dominating the Big Ten for the past
several years, the Wolverines may
have their hands full this season with
a much improved Minnesota team.
This weekend, Michigan traveled
to Madison where it competed in a
quadrangular dual meet with Minne-
sota and Wisconsin. Michigan State
also attended but did not compete
against the Wolverines. Michigan
soundly defeated the Badgers, 160-
85, but had to pull out the victory over
Minnesota in the final relay, 124-119.
Unfortunately for the Wolverines,
they got down early after a below
average performance in the 400-yard
medley relay and had to battle back in
order to get the win.
Highlighting the Michigan per-
formances was junior freestyler
Gustavo Borges. Borges-one of the
Wolverines top returning swimmers
- won both the 50- and 100-yard
freestyle events and anchored the
winning 400 freestyle relay that led to
the Wolverine victory. Also swim-
ming on the winning relay were se-
nior co-captain Rodney VanTassell,
sophomore Courtney Fallerand fresh-
man Chris Rumley.
"The meet started out on a low,"
Michigan coach Jon Urbanchek said.
"The medley relay was way below
par, but Gustavo had a good swim in
the free relay. We went from a team
low to a high. The first event for the
1993-94 season was as low as we can
get. It's good that we came back and
Anotherkeyevent for the Wolveines
was the 200-yard backstroke. In the sec-
ond to last event, juniors Marcel Wouda
and Steve West finished one-two beating
out two Minnesota swimmers. This gave
the Wolverines the chance they needed to
pull out the victory.
Borges said he felt that both the
relay and the breaststrokers came up
big under pressure.
"It was a pretty tough match,"
Borges said. "They were ahead of us
until the final relay. The relay saved
Sophomore backstroker Royce
Sharp came through with a victory in
the 200-yard backstroke. His time of
1:47.88 set a Wisconsin pool record.
"He was disappointed with the
swim," Urbanchek said. "It was defi-
nitely one of the better performances
As for Minnesota, the GoldeW
Gophers also won five events. Sopho-
more Bernie Zeruhn won both the
200 and 500 freestyle events with
times of 1:39.29 and 4:29.59, respec-
tively. Redshirt senior Paul Nelson
showed why he has been a Big Ten
champion in the individual medley
events as he won the 200-yard IM in
1:51.17. Nelson barely touched out,
Woudato setaWisconsin pool record.
Urbanchek said he hopes his team
can use the close victory to their ad-
vantage as it heads into tougher com-
"I sure hope it pays off down the
road," he said. "Maybe this will help
the team as we head into the Texas's,
Stanford's, Cal's and UCLA's. Those
teams are a lot stronger than Minne-
sota. On a scale of one to 10,
Minnesota's athree and we'll be meet-
ing nine's and ten's."
Minnesota last won the Little
Brown Jug in 1986 when the
Golden Gophers defeated
Michigan, 20-17 at Michigan
Stadium. Minnesota has never
claimed the Little Brown Jug
