fate rests in Ypsi

For the Michigan men's cross country team to qualify
for the NCAA championships, it would take a whole lot
of talent and a little bit of luck.
Fortunately, the Wolverines have the talent that could

Although the Wolverines are unranked, a second-place
finish would send them to Ames, Iowa, on Nov. 20 for the
NCAA championships. Michigan coach Ron Warhurst
said a third-place finish would give the Wolverines a
"way-outside chance" to qualify.
"There are 38 schools in our regional," Warhurst said.

The Michigan woimen's swimming
team won't have Carolina on its mind
this weekend at the Continental Airlines
Classic in IHouston, lexas.
Michigan suffered a heartbreaking
loss last weekend at North Carolina,
207-163. Going into the meet, the Tar
Hecls were tied with the Wolverines for
the No. 9 national ranking. "Carolina is
a very tough team," Michigan coach Jim
Richardson said. "We played well we
ijust got beat by a better team. We will
have an opportunity to show our real
strengths at Rice this weekend, though."
With the loss to North Carolina
behind them, the Wolverines will head

now, and we expect to play well and
maybe set sonte records this weekend "
co-captain Jennifer Crisman said.
Michigan is looking for big perfor-
mances from freshmen Samantha
Arsenault and Annie Weilbacher.
Arsentault, a gold medalist at the 2000
Olympics in Sydney, has been stellar in
the first three meets of the season, win-s
ning at least one event in each meet.
"Samantha is a swimmer who is giv-
ing this teamt a winning edge with her
skill and intensity," Richardson said.
Arsenault's performance has also had
a psychological impact on the team.
"Samantha is a young athlete who
can elevate the performance of the rest
of the team through example. She gives
the girls confidence to win by bringing
fire to the pool,' Richardson said.
While Arsenault has quickly assurted
a starrin" role with the Wolverines, team
co-captains Crisman and Melissa Sugar
have consistently led the team by exam-
ple both in and out of the pool.
Aside from their myriad accomplish-
ments in the pool, Crisman and Sugar
have been superb in the classroomits

"The two captains are prototypical
student-athtetes, smart girls with moti-
vation that excel not only inside the pool

"We might not win a single event
against Cal" Richardson said. "But we
should beat Illinois and Missouri quite
handily. But Penn State, with its new
recruiting program and rigorous train-
ing schedule, should give us a hard tite
in the pool.
The meet in Houston will help set the
tone for Michigan before the start of the

In the world of,.hockey, it's not a
player's overall game that receives the
most acclaim - it's his statistics.
Statistics grab the spotlight.
Statistics mean all-star games. Women
For a good example, look no further
than the NHL. Many people consider
Steve Yzerman to be the best two-way
player in the league, but just about
everyone would take Jaromir .lagr to
start a team.
Therein lies the plight and pride of
the Michigan hockey team's fourth
line. While scoring talent permeates
every position on the top three lines,
the fourth line - or red line, as dictat-
ed by the color of their practice jerseys
- more often attempts to stop pucks
from hitting twine on the penalty kill
and in even-strength situations.
"Our red line doesn't get as much ice
time" as the other lines "and they are
normally fresh," Michigan coach Red
Berenson said. "They do a good job
and they have got the energy - that's
what you need your fourth line to do.
They know that it is their job to kill
penalties and that's an important role
on the team"
The fourth line is a gateway for
Michigan's fringe forwards to make
their mark on the ice when they can.
Bill Trainor, Craig Murray, J.J.
Swistak, Dave Wyzgowski and Joe
Kautz have all seen time on the fourth
line this season.
There is no set lineup - often the
combinations are switched from one
game to the next.
"Coach is going to play everybody
- everybody will get a chance,"
Swistak said. "It won't be guys playing
two or three games in the whole season
- everybody will play a lot. This
weekend I probably won't play both
nights. I'm starting to play better, at the
beginning of the season I wasn't play-
ing that well - but Coach is always
going to change lines because we are
the fourth line"
