It seems that it's not only the
Michigan football team that has trou-

After a road victory over Purdue
Friday, the Michigan women's swim-
ming team fell to the Wildcats, 157-
143, and defeated Indiana, 221.5-78.5,
in Bloomington on Saturday.
However, Michigan coach Jim
Richardson said he's not worried.
"We've stressed to the team that it's
not about beating the other team,"
Richardson said. "It's about swimming
the fastest you can swim."
At the moment, the fastest the
Wolverines can swim may be slower

ones who qualified for the NCAA
championships, including freshman
Shannon Shakespeare, junior Talor
Bendel and senior Jodi Navta - con-
tinue to expend most of their energy in
By the time weekend meets roll
around, they have been struggling to
keep up with the opposition's best.
Still, Richardson admires their effort.
"(They) have been very steady," he
said. "They are working hard (during
the week) and swimming fatigued."
Despite the exhaustion, several
swimmers sparkled Saturday. Junior
Linda Riker swam a 2:01 in the 200-
yard backstroke, while junior Ellen
Fraumann had a strong showing in the

down, and this week the Wolverines will
swim at 40 percent of their normal load.
Richardson said it was evident that
some swimmers who have been getting
rest are beginning to perform better.
"We hadsome people whohave the

Even though Richardson said he
was pleased with his team's effort this
weekend, the Wolverines suffered their
first loss in Big Ten dual meets since
the 1992-93 season.
"Northwestern swam a great, great
meet,"he said. " Even though we had the
depth, their No. I people were extreme-
ly fast. They won almost every event."
For one who follows the
Wolverines, the loss may not have:
come as a shock. In fact, Northwestern
has been closing the gap on Michigan
in recent years.
The Wolverines steamrolled the
Wildcats by 87 points in their dual
meet during the 1991-92 campaign.
Since then, however, the margin of
victory has diminished in each succes-
sive year - last season Michigan only
won by two points - until the
Wildcats were able to overtake the
Wolverines on Saturday.
Friday, the Wolverines defeated the
Boilermakers by 59 points. Michigan
was able to have its way with Purdue in
most events, especially in freestyle.
Shakespeare won three events, all
freestyle, while Stone and Bendel won
two each. In total, the Boilermakers.
