addition will strengthen the entire
team both individually and in the re-
lays. It also allows Sharp to swim his
top events.
"He brings a lot in the sprints,"
Sharp said. "I can go back to what I
am best at - the 200 back, and 200
and 400 IMs. He and Lancaster can
help us beat Stanford in the medley

relays. Derya will add a lot in the 100
back, too."
The signing of Buyukuncu repre-
sents somewhat of a coup for the
Wolverines. Urbanchek snagged him
away from California as well as from
perennial swimming power and 1994
national champion, Stanford.
"The final decision was his, al-
though I encouraged him to visit
Michigan," Salo said. "His sole intent
when he came to America was to go to
Stanford. I told him it was in his best
interests to explore Michigan."
With the signings of Buyukuncu
and Lancaster, in addition to the
Cardinal's loss of the highest scoring
class in NCAA history, Michigan
looks to be in good shape for next
year's national meet.
In fact, the team has already started
talking about the possibilities. Sharp
says the team knows it has a good
chance to win it all.

"We're right in there; it kind of
gives you chills down your back,"
Sharp said. "If everyone trains hard
and comes back in shape, we can do it.
People need to move up places, and
maybe some others can make the meet
for the first time. You never know
how close it can be. We just had the
(annual) banquet, and (the national
championship) was one thing that was
talked about."
Buyukuncu also holds the national
high school record in the 100-yard
backstroke. However, his old record
may not last for long. California
postseason competition is set for May
14, and Salo believes that his swim-
mer has a great chance of breaking his
own record.
"I consider the record in great jeop-
ardy," Salo said. "It's just a matter of
how far under he can go. It will put
some pressure on Jon to get him to go
faster next season."
