Men's rowing club ranked No. 18
The Michigan men's rowing club
is looking ahead to another prosper-
ous season.
Michigan coach Greg Hartsuff is
preparing his team for the season
opener against Cornell on April 1.
Last year, the Wolverines proved
they were a success by winning the
Champion International - an
impressive feat considering that 90
percent of the rowers are walk-ons.
"We have a race strategy that
allows us to build the pace through-
out the 2,000 meter race, where at
some schools it could be somewhat
the opposite," Hartsuff said. "They
might go out faster to psychologi-
cally wear their opponent out."
"We have a more mature racing
plan, which calls for more of an
even-splitting race. It takes a lot of
discipline because you have to real-
ize other crews might do something

in poll of top varsity, club teams
differently."
Senior Steve Warner leads the
Wolverines as the top collegiate
light-weight oarsman in the country.
He is also a candidate for the
Olympic team. Currently, his scores
are faster than all of the 1996
Olympic team.
"Rowing is unique because it's
very hard to have a star," Hartsuff
said. "But the way to determine
strength is to do some physiological
testing."
For this upcoming season, the
club is ranked 18th in the nation.
All other teams ranked in the top
20 enjoy varsity status.
"We're going up against all these
varsity teams, and beating them,"
Hartsuff said. "We also have the
strongest freshman class we've ever
had. We're trying to push for more."

The Michigan men's hockey club -
ranked No.1 in the Southeastern
Region of the American Collegiate
Hockey Association-- competed this
past weekend in the first round of the
NCHL playoffs.
Michigan defeated John Carrol 8-2,
but suffered a landslide defeat against
its arch-rival Indiana in the semifinals,
losing 5-2.
But there is still hope for the team to
win a national championship. The top
16 teams in the nation will compete in
the national tournament. Despite their
loss this past weekend, the Wolverines
are still assured a spot at the tourna-
ment because of their ranking.
"We have the toughest all-around
schedule in the nation," captain and
club president Jason Kiehler said.
Coach Mike Radakovich said leader-
ship on the team is an important factor
to the team's success. Jason Kiehler,
Brandon Meigs, Mike Thorpas, and
Jeremy Mots are players that provide

e9Ntdijundlail
ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

internal leadership to the team.
"These kinds of people are needed in
order for this organization to be suc-
cessful," Radakovich said, "They are
responsible for making sure that pro-
jects get done, people stay in line, show
up where they're supposed to, and do
the little things that club teams have to
do to survive."
The Wolverines are known for their
up-tempo, quick-paced games.
"We play high pressure, high intensi-
ty hockey, which gets the puck moving.
It is more beneficial for us to play this
way because it fits our skill fevel and
demonstrates the player's quickness,"
Radakovich said.
Goaltending has been a positive
component for the Wolverines. Ted
Martins is, and has been, top-ranked
goalie in all of Division I. This week
they face Oakland, and the following
week they will compete in the ACHA
National Tournament.

The No. 6 Michigan softball team
didn't start its season until last
Thursday, but it already has five
games under its belt. The Wolverines
trip to the Campbell/Cartier Classic
in Poway, Cal. resulted in a 3-2
record.
The wins came in the first three
games, two against ranked teams. The
first win of the season came in a 2-0
triumph over Stanford. The
Wolverines also beat No. 1 UCLA,
the first time Michigan has beaten a
top-ranked opponent in team history.
The last time Michigan beat UCLA
1 was in 1995 when the Bruins were
ranked No. 2 and had Jennifer
Brundage on the squad. She's now an
assistant coach for Michigan.
"We started off the tournament
playing very well," Brundage said.
"UCLA was a big win for us, but after
that we did not play as well."
Michigan took its 3-0 record into
Saturday with both Pacific and No.
15 Long Beach State on the schedule,
but could not find the clutch hitting
or perfect defense that it had before.
After playing three spotless games
on defense, the Wolverines commit-
ted their first error against Pacific,
and then three errors in the second
game against Long Beach. Despite
out-hitting the 49ers, 7-4, Michigan
could only come up with singles to

final tune-u
By Ron Garber
Daily Sports Writer
Tle Michigan men's track and field
team tuned up one last time for next
weekend's Big Ten Championships at
Indiana this past Saturday at The
Silvyerston Invitational. The non-scoring
meet also marked the last chance before
Big Ten's for several Wolverines to qual-
: ify for the NCAA National
Championships. -
Despite senior Jay Cantin and sopho-
mores Ike Okenwa and Oded Padan
sidelined by leg injuries, Michigan dom-
inated the meet, winning eight individ-
ual events and one relay.
The most impressive of those victo-
ries belonged to senior Steve Lawrence,
who met the NCAA's provisional stan-
dard in the 5000 meter run by posting a
time of 14:05.4. Lawrence will join
Cantin and junior Mike Wisniewski at
the meet.
"Those guys are sure gonna be tough
at nationals," Michigan coach Ron
Warhurst said.
Hoping to match Lawrence was
Michigan's dynamic pole-vault duo of
junior Charles DeWildt and sophomore
Brent Sheffer. The two have flirted with
the NCAA's provisional height of 17'4"
for several meets and were optimistic
prior to competing.
"Hopefully today will be the day,"
DeWildt said. "We're feeling pretty
ready"
Unfortunately for Michigan, DeWildt
and Sheffer came up just inches short
once again, but the two finished first and
second respectively, clearing a height of
17' and will challenge for the confer-
"ences pole vault crown.
The Wolverines fared similarly in the
rest of the field events, with junior Nick
Rogers winning the shot put and senior

"We have mixed emotions about.
the weekend," Brundage said. "We
know we are capable of playing top
teams, but we are showing inconsis-
tencies."
Some of the top performances over
the weekend for Michigan included a
couple of career highs. Third base-
man and senior co-captain Pam
Kosanke hit well all weekend but
slugged a career best two doubles,
going 2-4 with two RBI. Also, junior
Marie Barda struck out 10 Cardinal
for the win in the season opener.

JESSICA JOHNSON/Daily
Northern Michigan sophomore Chris Jenson roots his Wildcats on to a tie
with Michigan this past weekend in Marquette.

Patrick Johansson victorious in the
weight throw. Both are expected to fin-
ish near the top of their events at the Big
Ten meet.
"I've got a little work to do," Rogers
said, "but I think I'm right there with the
rest of the competition right now."
Sophomore triple jumper Oded Padan
was held out of the meet a week after
returning from a lingering leg injury, but
made it clear that his focus was on the
Big Ten's.
"I'm just concerned with getting
healthy for Big Tens," Padan said.
With Cantin and Okenwa out, it
seemed as though the Wolverines would
suffer in the distance and sprint events,
but several others stepped up to lighten
the burden of their absence.
Sophomore Jeremy Schneider won
the 400 as has become habit for him, and
was joined by the less-heralded under-
classmen Anthony Wishart and Brad
Haudan. They finished second and third.
The Wolverines also dominated the
800 as junior Dan Snyder and freshman
Phil Stead finished 1-2 in the race.
Assurance that Cantin would be run-
ning at 100 percent strength next week-
end in Bloomington brightenedO
Michigan's day even more.
"I rested the ankle a little bit this week
and I'll definitely be ready for Big
Ten's,"Cantin said.
The news on Okenwa's injured ham-
string was not as encouraging however.
Okenwa is getting treatment twice a day,
and the coaching staff is not convinced
that he will be at full strength by the con-
ference championships.
"The hamstring's not doing too well,
but we haven't ruled anything out yet; "
coach Fred LaPlante said.
Okenwa is more confident. "This is a
big one," Okenwa said. "And I'll be
ready."
