Women's golf in second
after first day at Classic
Two weeks after setnnc the record for

school history, the Michigan women's
golf team started off strong at the Central
District Classic in Bradenton, Fla. yester-
day, firing a two-round team score of 616
to position themselves in second place
*leading into Tuesday's final round.
The tournament consists of 11 teams,
including seven Big T en squads.
Northwestern leads the pack after the
first day of play with a score of609.
Michigan was paced by two out-
standing individual efforts from sopho-
more Kim Benedict and junior Misia
Lemanski. Both finished Monday's two
rounds with a total score of 152. good
enough to tie for third. four shots behind
leader Emily Gilley of Nortlhwestern.
0 The Wolverines finished six shots
ahead of Ohio State. 12 shots ahead of
Michigan State and 27 shots ahead of
Minnesota -- all three of which have
beten Michigan in a tournament at
some time throughout the season.
Courtney Reno notched a 12th-place
score of 156, while LeAnna Wicks and
Bess Bowers both shot scores of 161
to tie for 30th. Freshman Sarah Kruer

Safety undergoes amputation
after Oct. 14 game injury
SAN JOSEL Calit (AP)- A sopho-
more on the San Jose State football
*eam had the foot and ankle of his right
leg amputated yesterday, nine days after
he suffered a compound fracture during
a game.
Neil Parry. 20, injured his right leg
on a kickoff return in San Jose State's
game against UTEP when a teammate
awkwardly rolled over his leg. Despite
several attempts to save his leg, an
infection developed. San Jose State's
team physician announced Sunday that
an amputation was necessary.
"The attending physicians were suc-
cessful in halting the spread of the
severe bacterial infection in Neil's right
leg," team physician Martin Trieb said
Monday. "Controlling the infection per-
mitted the surgical team to preserve his
right knee and the majority of his leg."
Yankee's Vizcaino to start
t second in Game 3
NEW YORK (AP) Game I hero
Jose Vizcaino will start at second base
for the Yankees over Chuck Knoblauch
when the World Series shifts to Shea
Stadium for Game 3 tonight.
The move by Yankees manacer Joe
Torre was a surprise. He said that
Knoblauch would return to second for
games at the National League ballpark
when the designated hitter is not used.
Knoblauch, the DIH for Games 1
and 2 at Yankee Stadium, has been
bothered by throwing problems and
arm pain throughout the season.
"I'm not surprised," Knoblauch said.
"ft's the right thing to do. This is not
the right time to mess around when
we're two wins away.
The Yankees take a 2-0 lead against
the Mets into the game Tuesday night.
"Vizcaino became the Yankees' hero,
bing.4-for-6, including the game-win-
ing single in the 12th inning.

Twelve minutes of intrasquad
scrimmage ending in a 13-13 tie
served mostly to wet the appetite
of the Michigan men's basketball
faithful less than three weeks away
from the first home game.
The shortened game revealed lit-
tle about the Wolverines, but it did
confirm many suspicions regarding
the playing styles of the incoming
freshman.
Avery Queen is in fact a speedy.
shifty guard in the mold of former
Eastern Michigan star Earl Boykins.
He ran the offense for the Blue team
and grabbed two steals.
"I think (Queen) is a kid who has
been practicing as well as anybody
on the team." Michigan coach Brian
Ellerbe said.
"1 think he was a little eager to
show everyone else that he's a really
good player."
Josh Moore s 7-2. 300-pound
frame should aid greatly in defense
and rebounding.
The center will likely see double
teams whenever he touches the ball

near the paint.
"Josh Moore stuck his first jump
hook in a Michigan uniform, that
was good to see," Ellerbe said.
And freshman Bernard Robinson
has a quick-to-the-hole first step that
should compliment the promisin"
game of fellow swingman LaVell
Blanchard.
Blanchard provided the game's
biggest highlight when he threw
down a Queen alley-oop pass with
his right hand.
While the dunk brought down
the crowd, the team spent most of
the game trying to operate textbook
halfcourt offenses.
"We we're excited to come out
and execute, we weren't trying to
play show-y," senior Josh Asselin
said. "We just wanted to show the
fans their team. It's the first time
everybody has had a chance to look
at us."
Freshman Maurice Searight did
not participate in the scrimmage
because of an ankle injury.
The injury is not serious, and
Searight be ready to play by

Women's goal: Tourney repeat
By David Horn
Da~tly Sports \Writer
Success has a lingerin aftertaste. After last year's
surprising appearance in the NCAA tournament, the
Michian wVomen's basketball tean is hoping- to keep
huildina on its way to another one. The recipe for another
sweet success bean Saturday in the annual Maize and
Blue scri mmage in Crisler Arena.
The women's intrasquad scrimmage was coupled with
the men's, and both teams hoped to draw each other's
fans, as well as Michigan sports in run-ofI froiim the
afternoon's football game.
"It's good that they're out playing in front of people.
just to get the nerves worked out a little bit," coach Sue
Cueara said. "I hope that some of the people that came
out come and watch us~again.
The team is excited about debuting its new four-person
freshman class, as well as its new-found size and depth.
"I was pleased with the rebounding tonight," Guevara
said. "Jennifer Smith gives us a big lineup. It gives us a
nice inside-outside game."
The Wolverines are predicted by many to finish as low
as No. 5 in the Big Ten. Coach Guevara and her players
have sef their sights hipgher.
"I don't see us down at five." jiunior guard Anne Tihorius
said "I see us up there x\ ith Purdue and Wisconsin. It's a
ioal to win the Bi, Ten."
The team finished second in the Big 'Ten last year, and
25nth in the AP poll.
"I really do see us going back to (the NCAA touirna-
ment ). (juevara said 'It's the goal ii everyone's

Divers centerstage for alumni meet

By Kristen Rdh

Daily Sports \nters
It produced 10-straight Big Ten titles
and a 1995 NCAA Championship. It
was called the Decade of Dominance,
and this past Saturday, the 1985-1995
Michigan's swimming and diving teams,
led by men's swimming coach Jon
Urbanchek, women's swimming coach
Jim Richardson and diving coach Dick
Kimball, came together for a reunion.
More than 150 alumni traveled with
families to participate in the invitational,
celebrate the Gus Stager Hall museum
opening and honor the 2000 Olympians.
Starting at I1 a.m. in Canham
Natatorium, the announcer's voice rang
through the bleachers, "Attention specta-
tors ...if you have come today expecting
a crisp, well-run swim meet, you have
come to the wrong place. We are here to
have some fi."
Whether swimmers were part of the
varsity team, the 2000 Olympic team or
hadn't been in a pool for a while, nine
events splashed through the morning
with nothing but friendly competition.
For a moral booster to the out-of-
shape alumni, the score was rigged, let-
ting veterans take each crown by one
point.
Olympians Chris Thompson and
Samantha Arsenault swam for the var-
sity teams while Tom Dolan, Shannon
Shakespeare and Tom Malchow swam

for the alumni.
"Having the Olympians here meant
a great deal," said Urbanchek, who has
served as Michigan's coach for 16 sea-
sons. "'he younger people look tip to
these Olympians who definitely inspire
my team and will hopefully put more
people on the Olympic team in 2004."
Though it was an honor to see the
Olympians swim, the show's highlight
came from the diving team.
Dressed in clown costumes and
old-time bathing suits, the 1985-1995
Michigan diving team, assisted by the
2000 varsity team, amazed the crowd
with not-so-graceful flips and twists, but
a gymnastic-like performance.
Divers performed the "mother-in-law
dive" by riding a broom like the wicked
witch, the "Horse and Rider dive" by
going off in a piggy-back and other
stunts such as riding a bicycle in the
water and sliding belly-first through a
slip-and-slide into the water. '
Throughout the friendly competition,
switmers teased each other, daring a
feat more unimaginable than the last.
The ambiance wasn't of a swim meet
but rather ofa family reunion with cousins
who havn't seen each other in ages.
"This is like a big Michigan family.
Going through the Olympics, having 10
or 12 people from Michigan, it's like
coming home," Urbanchek said.
To many of the alumni from
Michigan 's national championships of
the early 1960's, the day was an oppor-

tunity to ;ee the opening of a museum
that many thought would never be built.
Indeed, without eleventh-hour donations
from the swiming boosters, the muse-
um would not have been completed.
Urbanchek recogni/ed the past swim-
mer's accomplishments, but agreed that
the most rewaiding part of the alumni
day was getting to renew friendships.
"My favorite part is to see these guys
and see what happens to them alter
they leave swimming," Urbanchek said.
"The medals will tarnish, the records will
be broken, but the friendship they show
each other year after year will live on
forever. To me, that is more important
than what they accomplished."
