Members of the Michigan men's
swimming team built on the success
they had at the NCAA Champion-
ships to capture six titles at the Phillips
66 National Swimming Champion-
ships last weekend.
Freshman Tom Dolan came away
from Federal Way, Wash., with four
national titles and an American record
in the 400 IM. His effort marked the
most titles won by a male at the Nation-
als since Mark Spitz won four in 1972.
Swimming for his club team, Curl-
Burke, Dolan won the 400-meter, 800-
meter and 1500-meter freestyles, as
well as the 400 individual medley.
His time in the 400 IM (4:13.52) beat
the old American record by almost a
After a good morning swim, Dolan
knew he had a chance at the record.
"I was only .80 off in the morning,"
Dolan said. "I went real hard in the
morning, so I wasn't sure what I could
do at night. Going in to the breaststroke,
(during my night swim), I knew I had a
shot to break it. The crowd was really
behind me, helping me out. That gotmy
Ironically, Dolan beat ex-Wol-
verine Eric Namesnik, who placed
fifth in the same event. But Namesnik
is looking down the road for his best
"Eric (Namesnik) swam through
this meet unshaved and unprepared
so that's why he was not up to par,"
Michigan swim coach Jon Urbanchek
said. "His goals are for the World
Urbanchek said he thinks Dolan has
a shot at the world record in the 400 IM
this September in Rome, Italy, the site
of the FNA World Championships.
Junior Gustavo Borges won the
other two titles claimed by Michigan
swimmers. The Brazilian won the 100
and 200 freestyles in times of 49.60
and 1:50.14, respectively.
The Phillips 66 meet was the quali-
fying meet for the Goodwill Games,
which will be held this July in St.
Petersburg, Russia. Although junior
Steven West placed second in the 200
breaststroke, he was the fastest Ameri-
can, and thus qualified for the Good-
"Steven West getting second in
the 200 breast was outstanding,"
Urbanchek said. "Earning a spot on

Dolan said he will not go to the
Goodwill Games in order to concen-
trate on the World Championships
trials, which will be held in India-
napolis this August.
Two WOLVERINES QUALIFY FOR DIV-
ING NATIONALS: Senior Eric Lesser and
junior Abel Sanchez qualified for the
U.S. Diving Nationals last weekend as
well. Lesser will compete in the 10-
meter platform event and Sanchez in
the one-meter springboard at the Na-
tionals in Minneapolis in two weeks.
from staff reports
Michigan women's basketball
coach Trish Roberts was
issued a one-game suspension
by the Big Ten Conference
yesterday after published
remarks she made following
the Wolverines' game against
Ohio State Feb. 20.
"This situation with Trish is
being handled in accordance
with the Big Ten Conference's
unsportslike conduct policy
regarding comments made
about game officials," Michi-
gan Associate Athletic Director
Peggy Bradley-Doppes said.
The second day of play brought
harsh weather conditions, with rain,
snow and cold breezes hindering the
golfers. However, the Wolverines did
not let the wintry conditions affect their
golfing as the team carded a 338 com-
bined score for the final 18 holes of the
tournament, giving it a final score of

gan, hitting an 86 in the third round for
a three-day total of 239, 16 strokes
behind tournament champion Holly
Reynolds of Kansas. McDonald fin-

"Our short games weren't good,
we didn't putt and chip well," Michi-

In what may have been the biggest
surprise of the Wolverines' play, jun-
ior Jenny Zimmerman moved from
80th on the first day to 59th on the
second, posting the sixth lowest score
of the day (79).
"She came around and hit really
well," Teichert said of Zimmerman.
"Her chip and putt were good on the
first day and her confidence in-
creased on the second. It all came
