ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
DETROIT (AP) - Terry Glenn
did more than enough by himself to
beat the Detroit Lions .
Glenn caught three first-half
touchdowns, the first two in spec-
tacular fashion, as the Dallas Cow-
boys beat Detroit 38-7 and matched
their win total from each of the pre-
vious three seasons.
Under new coach Bill Parcells,
the Cowboys (5-1) have won five
straight games for the first time
since 1994 and are off to their best
start since winning eight of nine in
1995. Dallas has won three road
games this season, one more than
the two previous years combined.
The Cowboys, the only team to
lose twice to Detroit the past two-
plus seasons, beat the Lions for the
first time since 1992.
The Lions (1-5), under first-year
coach Steve Mariucci, are not far-
ing much better than they did the
past two years with Marty Morn-
hinweg, who was fired with a 5-27
record. Last year, the Lions won
two of the first six games before
Two decisions Parcells has made
in his first season with the Cow-
boys - acquiring Glenn and nam-
ing Quincy Carter his starter -
paid off again Sunday.
Glenn caught six passes for 75
yards. Carter was 18-of-25 for 190
yards with a career-high three
touchdowns and no interceptions.
Detroit was fortunate to score.
Dre' Bly scooped up Troy Ham-
brick's fumble and returned it 67
yards to give the Lions a 7-0 lead
midway through the first quarter.
Glenn's first three catches were
Carter threw a sharp, 20-yard
pass to Glenn, who managed to
keep both feet in the back of the
end zone late in the first quarter for
a TD. He made a diving, 19-yard
catch - despite pass interference
by Bly - to put Dallas ahead 14-7
early in the second quarter.
Glenn was wide open for his
third touchdown, an 8-yard catch,
on Dallas' next drive after a pass
from Joey Harrington was inter-
cepted by Dexter Coakley.
Harrington's pass behind Bill
Schroeder was intercepted by Mario
Edwards and returned 27 yards for
a score, giving Dallas a 28-7 lead
late in the first half.
Harrington was pulled after com-
pleting just five of 13 passes for 30
yards with two interceptions.
When Mike McMahon replaced
Harrington late in the second quar-
ter, he was welcomed by cheers.
But McMahon finished 5-of-20 for
51 yards with an interception and a

Tankers earns second-
place finish in Florida
After cracking the top 15 in the
NCAA Championships last year, the
women's swimming team welcomed its
30th season Friday night at the O'Con-
nell Center Natatorium in Gainesville,
Fla. The team swam to a split at the tri-
meet on Friday, and finished second of
four teams on Saturday.
The Wolverines earned a second-
place finish in the Florida Invitational
on Saturday, beating Florida Atlantic
University and Indian River Commu-
nity College, but losing to the host
238-92. The Wolverines finished first
in four of 10 events, with freshman
Kaitlyn Brady winning her second
event of the weekend in the 100-yard
backstroke, senior Anne Weilbacher
placing first in the 100-yard butterfly
and the Michigan "A" relay teams
taking top honors in the 200-yard
Medley and Freestyle Relays.
The Wolverines lost 133-93 to the
Gators, but defeated FAU 178-59 in
Friday night's tri-meet. Youth is often
considered a drawback in athletics;
however, the youth of this year's
Michigan swimming and diving team
proved an advantage in its first event
of competition this season. Brady and
classmate Susan Gilliam had strong
debuts, as Brady earned the Wolver-
ines' first victory with a time of
2:06.08 in the 200-yard backstroke
and Gilliam won the 500-yard
freestyle with an NCAA considera-
tion time of 4:53.26. Senior Kelli
Stein also had a great night, posting
an NCAA consideration time of
16.29 in a first-place performance in
the 200-yard breaststroke
The Wolverines are coming off a 3-
3 season in which they finished 14th
in the nation and are lead by captains
Weilbacher and senior Sara Johnson.
The squad returns three All-Ameri-
cans: Weilbacher and Abby Seskevics
in the 200-yard freestyle relay and
junior Amy McCullough in the 200-
yard freestyle. Also returning is Stein,
the Big Ten 200-yard breaststroke
The Wolverines continue their sea-
son tomorrow, taking on Toledo in a
7:30 p.m. dual meet in Toledo, Ohio.

Six tables, 12 paddles, the occa-
sional robot, a bucket of small
orange balls and more than 50
members of one of Michigan's
strongest club sports fill the corner
of the Michigan Sports Coliseum
four times a week.
The table tennis club meets Mon-
Thursday from 7
p.m. to 9 p.m.,

The club's competition schedule
has been vastly expanded this year
thanks to its bid into the Michigan
Collegiate Division. The docket

For new players who are just
starting out, the club holds round-
robin tournaments every Monday
and Wednesday. They are perfect
for those seeking a challenge with-
out jumping outside of the club
"They get pretty intense," club
president Clement Chan said.
"Everyone is very competitive."
Aside from the competition-level
players, most of the club's members
play on an even level. The equal
matchups often lead to exciting
tournaments where players can flip-
flop control of a match, taking it
down to the wire.
If your ping-pong ego is still too
fragile for round-robin play, Tues-
days and Thursdays are open-play
"The thing about table tennis is
it's a sport and a game for every-
one," Chan said. "It doesn't matter
who you are, anyone can pick up a
paddle and improve."
The club really shines when it
comes to turning basement all-stars
into world-class table-tennis mas-
ters. Thanks to a robot that can put
wicked spin on a ball and personal
lessons from Chan, players can
reach a level of play they didn't
know they could achieve.
"There is all kinds of different
training here," freshman Yaniv
Zimet said. "Playing against better
players is the training I like the
Above all else, the atmosphere in
