MARK FRIEDMAN/Dail
The Michigan men's swimming and diving team captured its tenth straight Big Ten championship this weekend in Minneapolis. The Wolverines go for
the national championship next month in Indianapolis.

won fo of the top five spots in that
event.
H-ov ever Dolan, who has battle*
asthma since childhood, had breath-
ing protl ems before his 400 IM swim.
"I'd had a lot of breathing prob-
lems al meet. I was a little worried
about th 3t. I knew that if my breathing
was all rtight I'd do well," Dolan said.
Urbane iek obtained a Breath-Rite
nasal b .ndage before Dolan's swim
to improve his breathing and Dolan
said it v orked.
After all, Dolan also set a Big
Ten rec >rd in that event with a time
of 3:44 28, overturning teammate
Marcel Wouda's previous record.
Dolai also took second place in
the 500 freestyle behind teammate
John Piersma, who set an a confer-
ence rec)rd with his time of 4:15.55.
"The 500 is pretty much Michi-
gan-dor linated," Urbanchek said
"We we e expected to win."
Fres rman Lancaster's perfor-
mance i i the conference meet was
equally impressive -hc set a confer-
ence record in the 200 IM in the
preliminary heat with a time of 1:45.59
and swan a leg in two record-setting
relays.
After Lancaster's 200 butterfly
victory Saturday, Urbanchek said,
"Jasona ad Derya came through as@
freshmen; to get us to NCAAs. They
really did the job at this meet."

against I linois, Indiana, Purdue and
Wisconsi. Freshman Brandy Taylor
was the fitrst Wolverine, but she quickly
dropped to last place among her com-@
petition. Clay, who grabbed the baton
from Taylor, had a simple story. She
began in fifth (i.e. last) place and fin-
ished in fifth place. Johnson, runner
number three, quickly gave her team
hope as she pressed into third position.
She eventually faltered intofourth place
mere seconds before handing to an-
chor, sophomore Lamika Harper.
Harper commanded respect within*
moments of gaining the baton as she
blazed her way into first place, where
she stayed until the last half-lap. Here,
the bad luck which has accompanied
Harper throughout the season, and
which locked as if it had taken the day
off, returned with full force. Harper,
tired' was easily overcome in the last
stretch by all but one runner. And, as
the final :,lap in Michigan's face, the
single Wisconsinrunnerbehind Harper
passed her seconds before passing the
finish line.
TheMichigan relay team wentfrom
last place to first place, but in the end,
the only part that really matters, the
Wolverines (3:53.43) were last in their
heat. Boilermakers Charnise Hughes,
Kristan Wolfrom, ShawnaJenkins and
Yasen came in first (3:46.99).
In the end, Michigan remained in
third place with a score of 58. The two
teams M:chigan head coach James
Henry predicted would be the toughest
for his athletes to overcome, Illinois
and Wisconsin, had muscled their way
to first and second place finishes with
scores of 132 and 83, respectively.
The Big Ten Championships de-
stroyed Michigan's chances of regain-
ing the triple-crown victory they won
last seasoa, but all wasn't gloomy. A
number c f individual performers -
Tearza Johnson, Monika Black, Karen

Harvey arnd freshman Tania Longe -
shone through their individual perfor-
mances.
