against a variety of teams in the
Florida Relays. An exhibition
event, the relays won't affect the

The Gators return most of their
lineup, including three sophomores
who earned a total of eight top-10
finishes in the 2001 NCAA Cham-
pionships as freshmen. They have
already competed this season as
well, knocking off defending
national champion Georgia in a
dual meet last weekend.
Scheduling an opponent of this
caliber to start the season would
usually make a coach worry about
his team's performance, but for
Michigan's women's swimming
coach Jim Richardson, this is noth-
ing new nor anything to
be worried about.

The extra time for practice and
rehabilitation has been beneficial
for the team and for one swimmer
in particular. Sophomore Emily
Fenn, a freestyle All-American who
fought scoliosis all summer, is
finally back to normal training and
should be back to full strength

sophomore Tealin Kelemen, each of
whom qualified for NCAA Zone C
competition last year, will lead the
diving team without redshirt sopho-
more Nicole Bracken who is ques-
tionable for the rest of the season
with a knee injury. Though Brack-
en's tower diving ability will be
missed, Kimball believes that his
group is by no means down in any
way and could be as good as previ-
ous Michigan teams.
"For the first competition they've
really been focusing," Kimball said.
"Tealin is certainly capable of
being in the same group of past
Michigan divers. It is too early in
the season to tell, but I expect her
to make the NCAAs."

Forward Abby Crumpton has recovered well from her strained calf injury and
scored three goals against Indiana.
Crump ton leads ate
season Blue attack
By Allison Topp
Daily Sports Writer
Every season is a hard climb as
every team and player tries to
make it to the top. No one knows
that better than Michigan forward
Abby Crumpton. During the
Wolverines' first road trip to Cali-
fornia in late August, Crumpton
went down with a strained calf
muscle. Unable to play, she had to
sit out for two games.
"It was hard coming back for the
first game back against Detroit,"
Crumpton said. "I was a little
winded since I hadn't gotten to do
anything for five days."
Yet, from that difficult first
game back to this weekend's victo-
ries over Indiana and Purdue,
Crumpton has come full circle
while taking charge of the young
Michigan team. Her offensive
presence was fully felt this week-
end as she scored three goals in
the win over Indiana. Her dynamic
play is one of the main reasons
why Michigan has a shot of quali-
fying for the NCAA tournament
at the end of the season.
Crumpton knows how to score at
every opportunity. When watching
her play, it is obvious that she has
a natural ability to put herself in
position to score. Crumpton also
has a knack for creating breakaway
"I think a lot of my breakaways
are due to speed," Crumpton said.
"In my first couple of steps I come
out really fast and that gives me a
little edge over players who may
be faster if we had to run the
whole length of the field."
Unlike some forwards, Crump-
ton is able to score in many differ-
ent situations. She can create
separation between herself and the
pack, or turn quickly and shoot
while being marked by two differ-
When a player can assess the sit-
uation and change her plan of
attack on a moment's notice, the
opposing squad is in for a rough
night. A perfect example of this
was Crumpton's first goal of last
Friday's game against Indiana.
"Many times when I break away
I tend to shoot it at the keeper, so I
wanted to tap it around her
because she came out pretty far,"
Crumpton said. "I thought I had
enough space to get around her
and then tap it in the net."
Crumpton's assessment was cor-
rect as she tapped the ball around
the goalkeeper to score her first
goal. It would have been easy to
simply shoot the ball at the keeper,
but she kept her calm and showed
why she is the mqst deadly weapon
in the Wolverines' arsenal.
If Michigan keeps on winning
games like it has lately (six out of
its last seven), then it will have a
good chance at winning the Big
Ten Tournament and going to the
NCAA Tournament later this fall.
Crumpton's offensive attack has
helped the Wolverines to this
point, but one of the most crucial
parts of her game has been the way
she has helped the defense by
putting pressure on the other team
in the front. This versatility is
what Michigan needs from one of
its leaders to take it to the next
"My defense tells me that when
I pressure the ball it gives them
more time to setup, find their
marks, and become organized,"
Crumpton said. "I want to help
them out because it is not just
about playing offense. I want to
win and I want my team to win."

After playing two tournaments in four days, the
Michigan women's golf team has had a well-
deserved week off-- sort of.
The ninth-ranked Wolverines didn't have a tourna-
ment scheduled last weekend, but that didn't exactly
translate into a week of rest and relaxation. The team
spent much of the week practicing on the Michigan
Golf Course, and then had a special treat over the
weekend - more practice at a different location.
Michigan played the Polo Fields Country Club
course for a little variety.
But the Wolverines aren't complaining. Their
record-threatening fall season has shown them how
much the extra course time can pay off.
They've almost enjoyed practice.
"You're not looking at it as work, you're looking at
it as an opportunity to win again," Kim Benedict
said. "Even though we're doing really well, we're not
going to let up because no matter how low we shoot
we can go lower."
That work ethic will remain in place this weekend,
even though Michigan will be in Orlando, Fla. The
team plans to ignore the beach and focus on golf, at
least until after the Hatter Golf Classic.
Then the Wolverines can enjoy their surroundings
and maybe even relax. On past Florida trips they've
crashed at coachaKathy Teichert's parents' house, but
if that doesn't pan out this year, Misia Lemanski is,
sure Michigan will find a beach or another attraction
"Our team loves to do that," Lemanski said.
"We're definite tourists."
Lemanski said the Wolverines enjoy spending
their free time together because they're such a close
That chemistry makes it a lot easier for the
Wolverines to push each other in practice, and it also
carries over to competition.
"You can always look back or look ahead and if
you see your teammate, they're going to be there and
wave at you or give you a thumbs up," Lemanski
said. "They can give you momentum and support."
Michigan has not seen the course at Mission Inn
Golf and Tennis Resort, which hosted the 2001
NCAA Championships, but views playing a new
course as a challenge.
Although Michigan have yet to face most of the
teams competing in the tournament, Teichert said its
opponents won't have much influence on the team's
"It's not like basketball of football where we can

make the other team turn the ball over," Teichert
said. "We can't control what the other teams are
doing. We can only control what we're doing."
The Wolverines are anxious to return to tourna-
ment play this weekend, especially since they're on a
three-tournament winning streak and have been play-
ing extremely well individually.
A fourth team title would break the school record
for wins in a season, and Michigan would finish the
fall season undefeated. But the Wolverines plan to
focus simply on playing well, rather than on how
important winning the Hatter Golf Classic would
"If you're out there for five hours and you're
thinking about everything that's happened in the
past, then you're going to drive yourself insane,"
Benedict said. "If we go out and play this tourna-
ment like it's our first, we'll be fine."

medroxyprogesterone acetate injectable suspension
DEPO-PROVERA- Contraceptive Injection
(medroxyprogesterone acetate injectable suspension, USP)
This product is intended to prevent pregnancy. It does not protect against HIV
infection (AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases.
What is DEPO-PROVERA Contraceptive Injection?
DEPO-PROVERA Contraceptive Injection is a form of birth control that is given as an intramus-
cular injection (a shot) in the buttock or upper arm once every 3 months (13 weeks). 16 con-
tinue your contraceptive protection, you must return for your next injection promptly at the end
of 3 months (13 weeks). DEPO-PROVERtA contains medroxyprogesterone acetate, a chemical
similar to (but not the same as) the natural hormone progesterone, which is produced by your
ovaries during the second half of your menstrual cycle, DEPO-PROVERA acts by preventing your
egg cells from ripening. If an egg is not released from the ovaries during your menstrual cycle, it
cannot become fertilized by sperm and result in pregnancy. DEPO-PROVEA also causes
changes in the lining of your uterus that make it less likely for prenancy to occur
How effective is DEPO-PROVERA Contraceptive Injection?
The efficacy of DEPO-PROVERA Contraceptive Injection depends on followin the recommend-
ed dosage schedule exactly (see "How often do I get my shot of DEPO-PROV[RA Contraceptive
Injection."). To make sure you are not pregnant when you first get DEPO-PROVRA
Contraceptive Injection, your first inection must be given ONLY during the first 5 days of a
normal menstrual period; ONLY within the first 5 days after childbirth if not breast-feeding; and,
if exclusively breast-feeding, ONLY at the sixth week after childbirth. It is a Iong-term injectable
contraceptive when administered at 3-month (13-week) intervals. DEPO-PROVERA
Contraceptive Injection is over 99% effective, making it one of the most reliable methods of birth
control available. This means that the average annual pregnancy rate is less than one for every
IO0 women who use DEPO-PROVERA. 1theeffectiveness of most contraceptive methods
depends in p art on how reliably each woman uses the method. The effectiveness of
DEPO-PROVERA depends only on the patient returning every 3 months (13 weeks) for her next
injection. Your- health-care provider will help you compare DEPO-PROVERA with other contra-
ceptive methods and give you the information you need in order to decide which contraceptive
method is the right choice for you.
The following table shows the percent of women who got pregnant while using different kinds of
contraceptive methods. It gives both the lowest expected rate of pregnancy the rate expected
in women who use each method exactly as it should be used and the typical rate of pregnancy
(which includes women who became pregnant because they forgot to use their birth control or
because they did not follow the directions exactly).

What other things should I consider before using DEPO-PROVERA
You will have a physical examination before your doctor prescribes DEPO-PROVERA. It is impor-
tant to tell your health-care provider if you have any of the following:
"a family history of breast cancer
an abnormal iamrnogram (breast x-ray), fibrocystic breast disease, breast nodules or lumps, or
bleeding from your nipples

This product is intended to prevent pregnancy. It does not protect against trans-
mission of HIV (AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamy-
dia, genital herpes, genital warts, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, and syphilis.
What if I want to become pregnant after using DEPO-PROVERA Contraceptive
Because n PO-PROVERA is a long-acting birth control method, it takes some time after your last
injection for its effect to wear off. Based on the results from alarge study done in the United States,
for women who stop using DEPO-PROVERA in order to become pregnant, it is expected that
about half of those who become pregnant will do so in about 10 months after their last injection:
about two thirds of those who become pregnant will do so in about 12 months; about 83% of
those who become pregnant will do so in about I5 months; and about 93% of those who become
regnant will do so in about 18 months after their last injection. The length of time you use
DEPO-PROVERA has no effect on how long ittakes you to become pregnant after you stop using it.
What are the risks of using DEPO-PROVENA Contraceptive Injection?
I kregulor Menstrul Bleeding
The side effect reported most frequently by omen who use DEPO-PROVERA for contracep-
tion is a change ini their normal menstrual cycle. [During the first year of using DEPO-PROVERA,
you might have one or more of the following changes: irregular or unpredictable bleeding or spot-
ting, an increase or decrease in menstrual bleeding, or no bleeding at all. Unusually heavy or con-
tinuous bleeding, however is not a usual effect of DEPO-PROVEPA and if this happens, you should
see your health-care provider right away With continued use of DEPO-PROVERA, bleeding usu-
ally decreases, and many women stop having periods completely. In clinical studies of
DEPO-PROVERA, 55% of the women studied reported no menstrual bleeding (amenorrhea)
after I year of use, and 68% of the women studied reported no menstrual bleeding after 2 years
of use. IfTie reason that your periods stop is because DEPO-PROVERA causes a resting state in
your ovaries. When your ovaries do not release an egg monthly, the regular monthly growth of
Women who use hormone-based contraceptives may have an increased risk of blood clots or
stroke. Also, if a contraceptive method fails, there is a possibility that the fertilized egg will begin
to develop outside of the uterus (ectopic pregnancy). While these events are rare, you should
tell your health-care provider if you have any of the problems listed in the next section.
What symptoms may signal problems while using DEPO-PROVERA
Call your health-care provider immediately if any of these problems occur following an injection
- sharp chest pain, coughing up of blood, or sudden shortness of breath (indicating a possible clot
in the lung)
- sudden severe headache or vomiting, dizziness or fainting, problems with your eyesight or
speech, weakness, or numbness in an arm or leg (indicating a possible stroke)
" severe pain or swelling in the calf (indicating a possible clot in the leg)
unusually heavy vaginal bleeding
severe pain or tenderress in the lower abdominal area
.persistent pain, pus, or bleeding at the injection site
What are the possible side effects of DEPO-PROVERA Contraceptive Injection?
You may experience a weight gain while you are using DEPO-PROVERA. About two thirds of
the women who used DEP0-PROVERA in clinical trials reported a weight gain of about 5 pounds
during the first year of use. You ma continue to gain weight after the first year Women in one
large study who used DEPO-PROERA for 2 years gained an average total of 8.1 pounds over
those 2 years, or approximately 4 pounds per yearWsomen who continued for 4 years gained an
average total of 13.8 pounds over those 4 years, or approximately 3.5 pounds per year Women
who continued for 6 years gained an average total of 16.5 pounds over those 6 years, or approx-
imately 2.75 pounds per year
2.Other Side Effects
in a clinical study of over 3.900 women who used DEPO-PROVERA for up to 7 years, some
women reported the following effects that may or may not have been related to their use of
DEPO-PROVERA: Irregular menstrual bleeding, amenorrhea, headache, nervousness, abdominal
cramps, dizziness, weakness or fatigue, decreased sexual desire, leg cramps, nausea, vaginal dis-
charge or irritation, breast swelling and tenderness, bloating, swelling of the hands or feet, back-
ache, depression, insomnia, acne, pelvic pain, no hair growth or excessive hair loss, rash, hot flash-
es, and joint pain. Other problems were reported by very few of the women in the clinical trials,
but some of these could be serious. These include convulsions, jaundice, urinary tract infections,
allergic reactions, fainting, paralysis, osteoporosis, lack of return to fertility deep vein thrombosis,
pulmonary embolus, breast cancer or cervical cancer If these or any other problems occur dur-
ing your use of DEPO-PROVERA, discuss them with your health-care provider-
Should any precautions be followed during use of DEPO-PRO VERA
During the time you are using DEPO-PROVERA for contraception, you may ski a period, or your
periods may stop completely. If you have been receiving your DEPO-PROVE njections regu-
larly every 3 months (13 weeks), then you are probably not pregnant. Howeverif you think that
you may be pregnant, see your health-care provider
2.Labocritory Test interoctions
If you are scheduled for any laboratory tests, tell your health-care provider that you are using
DPO- PROVERA for contraception. Certain blood tests are affected by hormones such as
