Michigan rowers turn heads at Head of the Charles
By Peter Romer-Friedman
For the Daily
The overcast and windy weather in Boston
this past weekend stirred up the waters of the
Charles River, where the 33rd running of the
world's largest two-day rowing event, the
Head of the Charles Regatta, took place.
The Michigan crew team raced Saturday
and Sunday, finishing 13th among an exclu-
sive group of 50 club, national and university
crew teams. Out of all colleges and universi-
ties, Michigan placed seventh.
Brown was the first university boat to cross
the finish line.
"I'm very happy with our performance,"
rower Tina Stutzman said. "It's a step in the
right direction. We beat a lot of schools we
had never beat before. It was an excellent
showing for the fall."
Michigan coach Mark Rothstein was satis-
fied with his team and is looking forward to
the next race.
"I felt pretty good about how we did,"
Rothstein said. "We've picked up speed since
two weeks ago. To finish seventh is a pretty
good showing and puts us in a good position
for the spring season."
Captain Lisa Labadie said her teammates
were mentally focused this weekend and are
improving every day. The average strokes per
minute rate increased by two to three strokes.
"In our first race we rowed a 28, and now
we rowed a 30 or 31," Labadie said, "We were
able to bring strokes per minute up well .and
with good power and ratio."
At the Head of the Charles Regatta, crew
teams start at 15 second intervals and the
team that finishes the three-mile course the
fastest obtains the title of "Head of the
Freshman rower Melanie Duncan was

of the Charles and the large Michigan fan
"It was so great this weekend," Duncan
said. "There were so many people watching
and so many (rowers) in the boats. On every
bridge there were people shouting 'Go blue,
go blue, go Michigan."'
Even the senior captain Labadie admired
the size and significance of the event.
"It's like rowing through a football stadi-
um," Labadie said. "It's a humongous event.
It's the largest sporting event in North
According to Labadie, the Wolverines have
a great deal of pride and desire to succeed in
it's second year of existence.
"Our coach said it best," Labadie said.
"When he looks around he sees a lot of ind'
vidual pride. When you put those individual
together, not much can go wrong.
"We have excellent tools with individuals
who have the hunger to make Michigan crew
history and create a legacy for the future."

the coaches wanting to emphasize the "just-another-
game" philosophy, should reach a new level when the
players hit the field today. Both teams will get a little
more antsy during drills and scrimmages, meaning that
a few fights are liable to break out as a result of the
"These are games that are almost fun to prepare for,"
Copenhaver said. "These are the games you wait the
whole year for."
INJURY UPDATE: Coming into last week's game against
Iowa, Michigan, as only Carr could effectively put it,
was "pretty banged up." Fortunately for him, many of his
fallen Wolverines are on the mend.
Fullback Chris Floyd and cornerback Andre Weathers,
who both sat out the Iowa game, will be ready to go this
As for the ones who got hurt last week, tailback Chris
Howard, who sustained rib damage and was taken to the
hospital right before halftime, is still listed as question-
able. His status will be re-evaluated today.
After spraining his ankle on what he called a "freak
play" near the end of the game, Jansen said that he will
be fine by this weekend.
"No matter how bad it hurts," Jansen said, "nothing is
going to keep me out of this game."
Blue displays Olympian effort

Some collegiate athletes would find themselves over-
whelmed playing at the site of the 1996 Olympics. Not the
members of the Michigan men's tennis team.
This weekend, Michigan dominated the Georgia Tech Fall
Classic in Stone Mountain, Ga., at the tennis site used for last
year's Olympic Games.
Michigan coach Brian Eisner was pleased with team's play.
The results were similar to those two weeks ago when
Michigan played well at the Tar Heel Invitational.
"This tournament was very similar to the North Carolina
tournament," Eisner said. "We were not expecting the compe-
tition to be as strong at Georgia Tech, but it was very strong.
I was extremely pleased with the results."
Sophomore John Long was impressive, winning five sin-
gles matches to reach the finals of the Flight B draw. Long
was able to survive three-set matches in both the third round
and quarterfinals. He then disposed of Tennessee's Kasper
Rasmussen, 7-6, 6-0, in the semifinals.
In the finals, Long won the first set against Jan Pollmueller
of UNC-Greensboro, 7-6. But Pollmueller fought back and
was able to win the last two sets, 7-5, 6-0, to defeat Long.
Long was just one of the standouts for Michigan, especial-
ly in singles play. Eisner cited a good start as key t
"We won eight of nine singles matches on the first day,
which really set the tone for the entire tournament," Eisner
Despite losing in the first round of the Flight A singles
draw, senior David Paradzik was able to reach the semifinals
in the consolation draw.
Junior William Farrah also played well in Flight A, reaching
the quarterfinals. Each of the three matches he won went to
Michigan was impressive in three-set matches, winning nine
and losing only two. Eisner hopes the team continues the trend.
"We had a number of tough three-set matches that we won,
which is a good sign early on in the season," Eisner said.
In the doubles portion of the tournament, Michigan entered
two teams. Paradzik and Farrah combined to reach the semi-
finals in Flight B. Sophomore Matt Wright and junior Jake
Raiton reached the third round of Flight A before being
Michigan played the tournament minus two injured seniors,
Arvid Swan and Brook Blain. Swan and Blain will have some
time to heal before the team's next tournament, the Rol4
Region IV Championships in Champaign, Ill., on Oct. 31.

Junior William Farah reached the Flight A quarterfinals of the
Georgia Tech Fall Classic by winning three three-set match-
es. Farah also made the semifinals of Flight B doubles.

gone by the wayside.
Michigan's 36-game home winning
