'M' D 's
at Big Tens
By Kevin Wright
Daily Sports Writer
With as much firepower as the top-tier men's swim-
ming and diving teams in the Big Ten bring, the open-
ing day of the Big Ten Championships started off with a
bang at the University Aquatic Center in Minneapolis.
In Michigan coach Bob Bowman's first Big Ten
Championship, the Wolverines started out a little slower
than usual while they released the butterflies floating
around in their stomachs.
"We came back after the break, and everyone was
faster," Bowman said. "Everyone responded."
When the finals started in the latter part of Thurs-
day's session, Michigan fell to 10th place after the
200-yard freestyle relay. The combination of seniors
Andrew Hack and Mike Galindo and freshmen Grant
Burch and Dane Grenda finished last, but one of the
Wolverines' top swimmers came through as the finals
In the evening 500-yard freestyle finals, junior Peter
Vanderkaay set a new Big Ten record with a time of
4:12.34. Junior Davis Tarwater came in third to help
the Wolverines jump from 10th place up to second,
"Peter's race was really good," Bowman said. "It was
exactly what I was hoping for, and he raced very tough
which he always does."
Overall, the 500-yard freestyle was the best event for
the Wolverines - they placed first, third and sixth in the
"A" finals and first and second in the "B" finals.
Then, the Wolverines dropped to fourth place after
the 50-yard freestyle finals because they did not have a
swimmer qualify for the finals.
Earlier in the day, Purdue's Louis Paul set a Big Ten
record in the 200-yard individual medley with a time of
1:44.65. Not to be outdone, Northwestern set a Big Ten
record in the 200-yard freestyle relay - sophomores
Matt Grevers and Mike Alexandrov and freshmen Kyle
Bubolz and David Kormushoff finished in 1:17.74.

break a bit early

Last night, the clouds over the Burns
Recreation and Aquatics Center in Los
Angeles seemed to mirror Michigan water
polo coach Matt Anderson's mood after the
No. 11 Wolverines (6-4 overall) lost to No. 5
Loyola Maryniount 11-2.
"Eighteen players played and not one of
them played well," Anderson said. "It was
by far the worst game (of the season). Noth-
ing went right, from the opening sprint to
the final shot of the game."
Loyola Marymount (7-1) came out hot
early, taking a quick 3-0 lead in the first three
minutes of the game with goals by freshmen
Rosanna Tomiuk and Christine Robinson
and sophomore Cara Colton. The Wolver-
ines fired back, cutting the Lions' lead to 3-1
with a goal from sophomore Shana Welch
with 3:01 left in the first period.
Within a minute of the Wolverines'
first goal, Robinson struck again to push
the lead to 4-1. But Michigan pulled
within two once more in the game when
junior Megan Hausmann scored with
2:37 left in the first.
From that point on, the game was
one-sided in Loyola Marymount's favor.
The Wolverines didn't tally a goal in the
remaining periods while the Lions tacked
on six more goals.
The Wolverines' poor showing sur-
prised Anderson, especially when consid-
ering the way the team played in the Triton
Invitational in early February - a tour-
nament where they won three out of four
games, scored a total of 23 goals and only
"I expected the game to come down to the
very end," Anderson said. "I never expected
the game to be over in the first 50 seconds or
however long it took for them to score three
goals. It just went downhill from there."
Although the Wolverines played a less
than stellar game, part of the lopsided loss
was due to Loyola Marymount's defense.
Sophomore goalie Rachel Riddell record-
ed 10 saves, preventing the Wolverines
from making a run and getting back into
With just two goals scored and II given
up, no one stood out statistically for Michi-
gan. Hausmann and Welsh scored the only
goals, and senior captain Betsy Armstrong
saved just three shots.
"(I told the team after the game that)
every one of them needs to think about the
contributions that they did not give today,"
While the team seemed to already be
enjoying their spring break, Anderson
knows that he can't hammer on this loss
"We just have to shut the door and move
on," Anderson said. "This is not an indica-
tion of who we are or where we're going.
We have to close the closet and never let the
skeletons out again."
As tough as a loss like the one the
Wolverines suffered is to swallow, they
might have the chance to redeem them-
selves - it is possible that they could
play Loyola Marymount this weekend in
the Gaucho Invitational in Santa Barbara
if both teams make it to the quarterfi-
nals. Anderson believes that his team can
rebound from this loss, and he hopes to
play the Lions again.
After the Gaucho Invitational, the Wol-
verines will do a considerable amount of
traveling over spring break, as they fly
down to Hawaii on March 2 and then travel
to Erie, Penn. to participate in the CPWA
Sophomore Jon Donadee was the top Wolverine diver at day one of the Big Ten Tournament.
man said. "They have a couple really good guys, and
they are swimming very fast."
When the one-meter diving finals began, the Wolver-
ines had no one competing due to low preliminary scores
from sophomores Pat Noyes and Jon Donadee and junior
Jake Boehm. Donadee placed the highest out of the three,
finishing in 24th place in the preliminaries.
Although the one-meter diving finals did not yield
any points, the Wolverines were still in prime position to
make a move up in the standings heading into the final
event - the 400-yard individual medley.
While the night started out on a high note with Peter
Vanderkaay's performance, it ended with a deflating
400-yard individual medley race. The Wolverines were
disqualified for a false start, dropping them to sixth place
in the standings with 94 points to finish the first day.
"It was a real disappointment in the team score for
today," Bowman said.
After a day filled with excitement and disappointment,
Bowman knows that the Wolverines will have to have
an excellent outing today to make up ground against the
current leader, Minnesota.
"We just have to regroup and come back tomorrow
and do better," Bowman said. "We have got to put more
people in the finals. We can't just rely on Peter; we need
some other people to step up."
With some of its weaker events out of the way, Michi-
gan will have a chance to make a run at Minnesota's lead
tomorrow with junior Chris DeJong entering the water
as a strong swimmer in the backstroke events.
While the Wolverines prepare for tomorrow, they know
that they have to rebound with a solid performance.
"They're disappointed, and they're a little bit angry,"
Bowman said. "I'm hoping that we can channel that into
some performances tomorrow. I think that we can come
Not-quite Wolverines to play at Yost
By Jake Rosenwasser

Four of Michigan's hockey recruits will finally
share the ice with the No. 4 Michigan team this Satur-
day. The U.S. National Team Development Program
Under 18 team (11-10-5 college teams,
32-11-5 overall) will square off against -
the Wolverines (21-3-2 CCHA, 24-7-3 Tomo
overall) in an exhibition game at Yostl
Ice Arena. The only catch is that U.S.;
defensemen Jack Johnson and Mark
Mitera and forwards Zac MacVoy and
Jason Bailey will be wearing red, white
and a slightly lighter shade of blue - not Yost to
Michigan's traditional Maize and Blue.
From a few years of experience
with this game, Michigan coach Red
Berenson knows what to expect from his four
"They'll be excited to play against Michigan,"
Berenson said. "And we'll, obviously, be interested
in their game, but they don't have to prove anything
to us in that game. Still, I know they'll want to show
everyone why we recruited them."
Tomorrow's game will be the fifth time that the
development program team will play at Michigan.
Michigan has prevailed in each of their first four
meetings. Still, Berenson knows the type of talent
the Ann Arbor-based program possesses.
"They shouldn't beat a Division I team," Berenson
said. "But why shouldn't they? Because
they're all going to be Division I play-
RROw ers next year. They're all going to be
(Kevin) Porters and (Chad) Kolariks,
and (T.J.) Hensicks and (Matt) Hun-
wicks, so they're a legitimate team who
ym, have some pretty legitimate experience
playing Division I schools."
Aa Michigan State would know. The
U.S. team went into East Lansing and
beat the Spartans 4-3 on Jan. 28.
"They're everything they're billed to
be," Michigan State coach Rick Comley said after
the game. "They're very dangerous, and they've
got a couple of guys who, when they have a couple
chances, can score, as we saw tonight."
One of the guys that Comley saw, and who the
rest of the nation is also watching, is forward Phil
Kessel. The 17-year-old leads the U.S. team with
34 goals and 30 assists in just 48 games. He is
widely regarded as one of the best young players in
North America and is undoubtedly the most prized
recruit in this year's class. Earlier in the year, he
was reportedly interested in staying in Ann Arbor
to bring his skills to the Wolverines, but USCHO
has reported that Kessel has narrowed his options
to Minnesota and Wisconsin.
But even if Kessel doesn't change his mind about
Michigan, the Wolverines should be in good hands
next year. The NHL's Central Scouting Service
ranked Johnson as the fifth-best draft-eligible player
in North America.
"He skates well," Berenson said. "He's very skilled
with the puck, he's a physically tough defenseman,
he plays a physical game and he can play both ends
of the ice."
After Saturday's game, Michigan continues
CCHA play with its final regular-season series.
They will play Bowling Green on March 4 and
5 in a home-and-home series. Michigan holds a
three-point lead over Ohio State for first place
in the conference. With a win or two ties against
Bowling Green, Michigan can seal up first place
in the CCHA.
Sophomore T.J. Hensick will take on the U.S. NTDP team tomorrow at Yost ice Arena.
