TheMichigan men's swimming and
diving team is stirring a massive tidal
wave, sucking in all of its opponents.
Saturday, the Wolverines drowned their
latest victim, Wisconsin.
Michigan, ranked No. 1 nationally,
crushed the Badgers, 172-68, at
Canham Natatorium in the confer-
The Wolverines were confident
going into the meet.
"I wanted to give everybody an
Opportunity to swim without any stress
because the competition wasn't there,"
The Wolverines used this meet to
polish their swimming by working on
being in control.
Sophomore Tom Dolan won the
1,000-yard freestyle with a time of
9:14.23, a full nine seconds faster
than the rest of the field. Dolan also
swam the 200-yard breaststroke, plac-
ing second to senior teammate Steve
Urbanchek gave some Wolverines

the chance to swim events other than
"I hurt my shoulder on Wednes-
day and I haven't been able to do a full
stroke," Dolan said commenting on
his performance. "I wasn't looking
for much because of my shoulder."
Dolan hurt his left shoulder
while lifting weights earlier in the
week. He said he almost sat out of
the Wisconsin meet in order for
his shoulder to heal. Even with
his aching shoulder, Dolan, cur-
rently in the running for NCAA
Swimmer of the Year, still man-
aged to perform successfully.
Senior Gustavo Borges also swam
well, defeating his competition in the
50-yard freestyle and as a part of the
400 medley and 400 freestyle relay
Urbanchek was also pleased
with freshmen Owen von Richter
and Derya Buyukuncu. In the 500
freestyle, von Richter placed sec-
ond to teammate Jon Piersma. Von
Richter came in third, just two
seconds behind Piersma, in the
200 freestyle. He also placed third
in the 200 fly, again coming in
two seconds after the leader,
Michigan junior Royce Sharp.
Buyukuncu swam in both win-
ning medley teams and came in first
in the 100 free, edging out Wolverine
"The freshmen are adjusting in
the water exceptionally well,"
Urbanchek said of his highly-touted
Wisconsin served as a warm-up
for Michigan. The Wolverines meet
powerhouse Texas this week.
According to Urbanchek, "Texas
is red hot." The meet next weekend at
Canham will be a showdown between
two of the most heralded teams in the
With the Wisconsin meet down,
the Wolverines will spend this week
training for the Texas meet, so they
can attempt to prove who really is the
"red hot" team.

The women's cross country team
had three goals in mind at the start of
the 1994 season: It wanted to capture
its third straight Big Ten Title, its
second straight District IV tittle, and
finish in the top four nationally at the
end of the season.
The Wolverines are well on their
way to satisfying each goal. They have
won their third Big Ten title, are cur-
rently maintaining a top four status in
the country, and Saturday captured their
second District IV championship at
The win not only brought Michi-
gan closer to its goals and add to a
long list of victories, but guaranteed it
a bid for the NCAA championships
Nov. 22 at Arkansas.
Two sets of Wolverine runners
posed double trouble for the champion-
ship competition Saturday. Twins
Deanna and Pauline Arnill captured the
second (17:19) and third (17:21) place
spots. Karen Harvey and Jessica Kluge
captured the seventh (17:28) and eighth
(17:29) overall spots, respectively.
Michigan's strategy to run in a pack
allowed it to place four runners in the top
ten. The biggest competition. was
Wisconsin's top runner, Kathy Butler. A
went out and ran alongside Butler.
Butler captured the top spot with a
time of 17:05 en route to the Badger
second-place finish. Butler seized
control of the top spot as she out-
muscled the Wolverine pack and over-
came Deanna Arnill at the three kilo-
"The first three kilometers, there
was a lot of elbowing," said Deanna.
"At the point when (Butler) took off,
it was too hard to stay with her. I
didn't have a big enough kick."
Wolverine head coach Mike
McGuire said that the pace along with
the softness of the course added to the
difficulty of the race.
"The course was pretty fast," said
Pauline Arnill. "It was fairly soft so it*
didn't run as fast. It really hurt."
Other Michigan finishers included
Eileen Fleck (12th overall, 17:50),
Katy Hollbacher (19th, 18:01), and
Molly Lori (29th, 18:14).
Michigan has raced throughout the
majority of the season without All-
American Courtney Babcock,' who
has been sidelined with a nagging leg
injury. McGuire said he is pleased
with the team's effort thrbughout the@o
season and the leadership on the team,
especially with senior Jessica Kluge.
"The (finishes) go back and forth,
but we have been consistent as ateam,"
McGuire said. "Jessica has provided
excellent leadership. I can't say
enough good things about her."
McGuire said the team will not be
completely finished with its goals until
after the NCAA championship be
cause rankings can change so quickly.
. "Anything can happen," said
McGuire. "The top four is more real-
istic, but if we keep running solid we
are capable of fourth or better."
Michigan's No. 3 all-time
receiver is Jack Clancy with
