Looking for help
Michigan football coach Gary Moeller will be looking over the next few
weeks to fill the two vacancies on his coaching staff. Defensive
backs coach Bill Harris left the Wolverines to be the
defensive coordinator at Stanford Friday and offensive line
coach Les Miles took the offensive coordinator job at
Oklahoma State last month.

Sprinters
struggle
again at
Invitational
By Dan Stillmnan
For the Daily
For the second straight week, the
Michigan women's indoor track and
field teamcontinued its success in long-
distance and field events. The Wolver-
ines, however, struggled in sprints and
short-distance races last Saturday at the
unscored Meyo Invitational.
Senior shotputter JaynaGreiner and
high jumper Monika Black accounted
for two of the Wolverines' three first-
place finishes. Both won their events
for the second straight week.
"My goal was to have a better atti-
tude and stay focused, as well as jump-
ing higher than last week," said Black,
whose jump topped out at 5-foot-10. "I
achieved all of those goals."
Distance runner Karen Harvey
grabbed Michigan's other first-place
finish with a 4:48.78 in the mile run.
Freshman Deanna Arnill had a
strong showing in the 3000-meter,
finishing first among collegiate ath-
letes and third overall with a time of
9:34.9.
"I actually didn't run as well as I
had wanted to," Arnill said. "I can't
really blame it on the oversized track,
but the last lap seemed longer than I'm
used to."
Sprinter Lamika Harper also com-
plained about Notre Dame's track,
which has longer straightaways and
shorter curves than most college tracks.
"We thought the long straightaways
would allow us to catch up at the end,"
Harper said. "Unfortunately, it was hard
to make the adjustment. You weren't
exactly sure whereyou wereon the track.'"
TaniaLonge is still unable to hurdle
after twisting her knee last weekend.
Nevertheless, she did participate in the
200-meter and finished third (26.88)
out of five in her heat.
"I didn't feel anything during the
race, but I don't think the knee is any
better," Longe said. "I'm still icing it
and giving it treatment everyday. I'm
going to try hurdling in practice this
week."
Michigan's sprinters and short dis-
tance runners did not fare as well, as
they failed to win any events.
"The sprinters are still struggling,"
Michigan coach James Henry said.
"We need them to be a factor in Big
Tens and they need to improve a lot to
do that."

Northwestern upsets Wolverine netters

By Marc Ughtdale
Daily Sports writer
After an impressive showing at the
Big Ten Indoor Singles Tournament at
Illinois last week, the Michigan men's
tennis teamopened its conference sched-
ule losing to a surprising Northwestern
squad, 5-2.
"The fact of the matter is we sim-
ply did not win the close matches
today," Michigan head coach Brian
Eisner said. "In general, we just did
not play a good match."
Even though the 5-2 score ap-
pears to be decisive, two of the
matches came down to decisive third
sets. In the first singles match, Carl
Von Schantz of Northwestern
outlasted John Costanzo, 7-6, 3-6,
6-3. In the other three-set affair,
Northwestern's Wyeth Goodenough
edged highly touted Michigan fresh-
man David Paradzik, 7-6, 2-6, 6-4
at third singles.
"We had a lot of close matches so
we should have won," Paradzik said.
Although the overall result was
disappointing, the Wolverines had
some highlights. Peter Pusztai de-
feated Jeff Giraldo, 7-6, 6-2. Giraldo,
a senior from the Detroit area, won
the Michigan high school title before
Pusztai's two-year reign as the state
high school champion.
Eisner also found solace in
Michigan's two double victories, pro-

viding the Wolverines with the doubles
point for the match.
"I was very pleased even though we
did not play well in the doubles," Eisner
said. "At least we got the doubles point."
The Wolverines defeated Northwest-
ern twice last year in addition to an
earlier victory this year at Tennessee.
However, the Wildcats, who finished a
close third in the Big Ten last year
behind the Wolverines, proved to be
formidable opponents.
"A team that on paper is not quite as
good as you are, but is capable of beat-
ing of you," Eisner said. "That is ex-
actly the kind of team that sometimes
you will come out tight against."
The Wolverines did just that, and
Eisner indicated that theirplay appeared
to have an effect on the result of the
match.
"When you come out tight and ner-
vous, then you will make errors in areas

where you would normally not make
errors," Eisner said. "Many of our
players were making errors in areas that
are their strongest."
Although any loss is disappoint-
ing, the Wolverines find this one hard
to swallow after destroying North-
western at a tournament a couple
weeks ago. However, the Wildcats
were missing their No. 1 singles
player, Carl Von Schantz and one of
their top doubles players, Martin
Stigh, at that time. The Wolverines,
however, continue to play without
freshman Arvid Swan. The return of
Von Schantz and Stigh appeared to be
pivotal in the Wildcats' victory.
"They played much better against
us today than they did two and a half
weeks ago," Eisner said. "It was more
really what we did to ourselves than
what they did to us."

Daily Sports writer
At the close of the dual meet
season for the No. 1 men's swimming
and diving team (9-1 overall, 3-0 Big
Ten), spectators have realized what
head coach Jon Urbanchek knew all
along - that the entire season's re-
sults do not matter.
Throw away the meet sheets, the
times, the records, the results. Throw
it all away until March 16 - the
NCAA meet, the only real competi-
tion the Wolverines will face all sea-
son. Between now and then, all they
have to worry about is a rubber-stamp
meet to confirm their No. 1 status in
the Big Ten, and getting ready for the
three-day national championship
meet.
"We have a taper program,"
Urbanchek said after Friday's meet
at Michigan State, where the Wol-
verines defeated the Spartans, 148-
87. The Wolverines didn't even
bother to take senior co-captains
Marcel Wouda and Gustavo Borges
to East Lansing.
But Tom Dolan made the trip
and he managed to break pool
records in the mile and the 1,000
free on his mile split. Oh, and he
also broke the 500 free record in
Charles McCaffree Pool.
Dolan swam two of the most de-
manding events and set pool records
in all of them -- on the same night.
But even that didn't tire the Olympic
medalist, so he decided to paddle
through a leg of the 400 free relay.

"(Urbanchek) was trying to kill
me a little bit but it didn't work,"
Dolan said.
And Michigan took first place in
10 of 11 swimming events.
"It really doesn't mean anything,"
Urbanchek said of the dual meet sea-
son. "But it would be a long season
for five months - train, train, train
and no competition."
But even the Big Ten meet will
mean little to the Wolverines, whose
only real competition lies in No. 2
Stanford and No. 3 Texas. Although
Michigan lost to Stanford, many of
Stanford's strengths will be neutral-
ized byTexas - who beat Stanford
earlier this season - at the NCAAs.
"The winning attitude is surfacing
slowly. Hope always arrives on March
23," Urbanchek said. "You want to be
totally focused, totally psyched on
that day, not the day before.
"(The national championship) was
like more of a wish. This time it's not
a wish. This time it's like a will to
win. Everything is in order."
