'M' crew looks to chuck Charles

By Fred Unk
For the Daily
The Michigan team competing in
front of the largest crowd this weekend
won't be the football team.
The women's crew team will race
Sunday in front of 250,000 people at the
32nd annual Head of the Charles Regatta
in Boston. The Wolverines will be joined
on the three-mile course by 4,500 rowers
representing over 40 universities.
"(The Head of the Charles) is proba-
bly the most well known regatta in the
country" Michigan coach Mark
Rothstein said. "The (U.S.) national
teams will be there as well as the top col-
legiate crews, so it's a very competitive
Despite the name, in a "head" race,
boats do not race head-to-head. Instead,
the start is staggered and boats race
against the clock. The boat completing
the course in the shortest amount of time

is awarded the honorary title "Head of
the Charles."
Michigan, which will send only one
boat to this weekend's race, will be com-
peting only in the most prestigious
championship eight.
The Wolverines are coming off a
strong showing two weeks ago at the
Head of the Ohio Regatta in Pittsburgh.
In the championship eight, the
Wolverines finished third.
With the stiff competition at the Head
of the Charles, however, Michigan is
unlikely to finish as high this week.
"Given the level of competition, I'd be
happy with a top-20 finish (out of 44
teams)," Rothstein said.
Meanwhile, the Michigan men's crew
team will take on intra-state rivals Grand
Valley State and Michigan State on
Sunday at the Head of the Grand in
Like the women's team, the focus of

the fall season for the men is to improve
and to get ready for their main season ih
the spring.
"The fall is an important time for guys
to get better at rowing," men's coach
Gregg Hartsuff said.
In terms of its effect on the team's suq-
cess this season, Hartsuff described the
race as "meaningless:' As a competition
against the only other collegiate crews in
Michigan, however, the race takes on
some importance.
"It's about state supremacy" third-
year rower Bill Belknap said. "Any time
Michigan faces Michigan State, it mat-
Michigan will enter three eights in th,e
Head of the Grand, and Hartsuff hopes
that Michigan can sweep the top three
"Our goal is to finish 1-2-3," Hartsuff
said. "Whether we can do it, I donut
know, but that's our goal."

Going against the Green
The Michigan women's swimming team will open its season against Intrastate and ig Tn rival Michigan State on
Saturday at Canham Natatorium. The Wolverines haven't had much trouble with the Spartans in the put, and after
performing well at NCAAS last year, they don't expect anything less than a big victory.

inefficiency in the servo mechanism, which to that day,
only our top engineers had recognized.
Then she gave us a half hour lecture on how to fix it
and we told her about state-of-the-art labs; she launched
into a monologue about data storage and what we should be
doing about it, so we told her what we are doing about it.

She said there's a lot of work to
