"I want to win a national champi-
Michigan has enjoyed newfound
success under Guevara, starting the
season with five straight wins before
losing to top-ranked Stanford by three
The Wolverines entered the Big Ten
portion of their schedule with an 8-1
mark, but have lost six of their last
seven to fall to 12-9.
The 12 victories are the most since
the 1989-90 season, when Michigan
qualified for the NCAA tournament.
The appointment was the realiza-
tion of a lifelong dream for Guevara,
who is a Michigan native.
"Growing up in the State of
Michigan, you grow up a Wolverine,"
Guevara said. "I always dreamed of
being the head coach at the
University of Michigan."
Several players and many other
Michigan coaches were present for
the announcement yesterday, includ-
ing men's basketball coach Steve
Fisher, who canceled a recruiting
appointment to attend. Guevara
acknowledged the support of the
"It's a very supportive atmos-
phere" Guevara said. "It's a family
atmosphere. I think it's great when
you bring recruits on campus and you
can walk into (Fisher's) office and
he's right there."
While the support of the staff is
important, Guevara has the backing
of a more important group - her
players. Both junior guard Molly
Murray and sophomore guard Ann
Lemire were on hand to support their
new coach and emphasize the change
in attitude that she brings with her.
"All of us wanted her back,"
Murray said. "Nobody loves to run
their guts out or anything (in prac-
tice), but you're doing it for some-
body who gives you so much in
return. It pays off."
Even with the excitement of the
announcement, Guevara was already
concentrating on the upcoming game
against Penn State, a team that has
already beaten the Wolverines.
"Believe me, I'm happy," Guevara
said. "But I'm thinking about Penn
State on Friday and what we have to
do to beat them."

National championships: In
women's basketball, Michigan has none.
Guevara promises future Wolverines that
if they come to play for Michigan, they
will have a chance to contend for one.
"We want to win a national champi-
onship here," Guevara said. "Any of
those juniors and sophomores in high
school in the State of Michigan -if you
want to get the best education in the
world and be part of a growing basket-
ball team that will win a national cham-
pionship - then the University of
Michigan is the place to be."
She has already signed four recruits
for next season, including two of the top
three players in the state.
Guevara has helped the Wolverines
accomplish all of this while still bearing
the interim title. She has had the perma-
nent position for one day.
The question now becomes, "How
long will it take?"
How long will it take to turn MichigaiO
into a Big Ten champion for the first
time? How long will it take to turn
Michigan into a perennial winner? And
finally, how long will it take for the
Wolverines to capture their first national
title, fulfilling Guevara's promise?
These are questions that the
Wolverines are probably glad to face,
instead of wondering who will be their
No one knows the answer to these
questions, but the Michigan women's
basketball program took a big step
toward answering them when Roberson
removed "interim" from Guevara's title.
Guevara spent 10 successful seasons
at Michigan State before finally coming
So, what took you so long, Sue?

Tenley Hardin also shows equal
promise in comparison with the other
freshmen on the team.
She is adequate in doubles and sin-
gles, and was a district finalist and
doubles champion as a high school
senior in Florida.
The Michigan's women's tennis
team looks as though it is on the
upswing with coach Bitsy Ritt's new
additions to the team.
The four freshmen are proving that
age is only a number. They are show-
ing that they are mentally tough and
that they will not defeat themselves.
They are playing a game they really
seem to enjoy.
So remember the names Tenley
Hardin, Brooke Hart, Danielle Lund
and Erryn Weggenman - because
they are here to stay.
