Fough time for rowing at IRA

Wn Topp guys had to learn today."
ily Sports Writer The first varsity eight had one of the

The Intercollegiate Rowing Associa-
n Championships in Camden, N.J.
is weekend brought the Michigan's
sb varsity men's crew team up against
stiffest competition of the year. The
A Championship had over 60 teams
tMing. With such a large field, the
Vverines were hoping to catch a
eak on their draws. They didn't have
y such luck this year.
"We just ended up getting some of
: toughest draws," head coach Gregg
irtsuff said. "Bottom line, you have to
able to face whoever you're put in the
ter with. It was a tough lesson these

toughest heats on Thursday morning.
The rowers from Dowling edged out the
Wolverines by less than two tenths of a
second in the last 500 meters. The row-
ers gathered themselves to try to main-
tain the composure of a team of
seasoned veterans. But with just one
senior rowing varsity, the race in the Fri-
day repetition didn't go as well as hoped
with the boat placing fourth.
That earned the Wolverines a spot in
the fourth level race, where the first var-
sity eight placed second to Navy. Both
the second varsity eight and the fresh-
man eight placed first in their third level
races.

M' third in Sears Cup

The only boat to make it to the Grand
Final was the varsity four without a
coxswain. The rowers finished fifth at a
time of 6:35.20, falling to Wisconsin
(6:22.31) for the second time this season.
"They had the best race they could
have had," Hartsuff said.
All four men are seniors and gave the
young crew team much of its leadership.
Even with some early round disap-
pointments, the crew team made a solid
statement finishing 11th in the nation
with being the only club team in the top
20. By graduating one senior from the
two varsity eight boats, these champi-
onships are definitely a springboard for
continued improvement into the next
year.

Eye on Drew
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - New York Yankees third base prospect and former
Michigan quarterback Drew Henson hit in the batting cage Tuesday for the
first time since breaking his left hand last month.
Henson also took grounders and made throws from third base during a
workout at the Yankees' player development center.
"No pain, no nothing," Henson said. "I felt good."
Henson said he might be able to start playing again in games within the
next couple weeks for the Triple-A Columbus Clippers. He was hit by a
pitch while playing for Class-A Tampa in a Florida State League game
April 14.
Henson signed a $17 million, six-year contract with the Yankees in
March. As part of the deal, Henson agreed to give up football. Henson was
considered a potential first-round draft pick in next year's NFL draft.

Despite a second-place finish in the
men's crew national tournament,
ichigan has fallen to third in the
ars Directors' Cup standings.
Michigan was in second place going
to the spring championship season,
ng only six-time champion Stan-
rd. But a first-place finish in
omen's water polo and second-place
men's volleyball has catapulted
CLA above Michigan and into sec-
.d place with 899 points. Stanford
stains in first with 1094.5, while
ichigan is in third with 814.5.

other key factor in the draft
ess is "signability."
Andy Brown was a Michigan short-
>p recruit who would have finished
fourth year with the Wolverines
s spring. Zahn estimated him to be a
rd to fifteenth round choice in 1997.
But instead, Brown was very vocal
It he would sign if he were selected
the first two rounds. Rather than
g a high choice on a player who
!not ever sign, theYankees selected
own early. One of the most talented
yers in the draft, former Michigan
arterback Drew Henson, was not
:en until well after Brown because of
possibility that he would give up a
seball career for football.
With 50 rounds and 30 teams draft-
almost anything can happen. Last
sr, the Wolverines lost star catcher
vid Parrish and incoming freshman
a McLouth. McLouth's early
re was a complete surprise.
'If you would have told me that we
uld lose a recruit last year, I would
ve guessed (Jim) Brauer," who was
Ifted by the Montreal Expos last
ir, Zahn said. "We didn't see that
ecoming.
'he Pittsburgh Pirates were unable
sign several of their higher draft
0es. That enabled them to offer
,000 to McLouth, their 26th-
nd choice.
Zahn expects all of the current
ruits to be attending classes in Ann
bor this fall.I
'But you never know,"Zahn said.

These results are the first set of
spring standings and include women's
golf, lacrosse, crew, tennis, water polo
and men's volleyball.
Thus far, Michigan has earned
points in women's crew and women's
tennis which earned an NCAA Cham-
pionship berth. The women's water
polo team failed to earn any points for
not winning its regional championship
in the NCAA Tournament.
A team must qualify for its NCAA
Tournament in order to earn points.
The further a team goes in its champi-
onship, the more points it earns, with
100 being awarded for winning an
NCAA title.

Massillon, Ohio (AP) - Massillon
Washington quarterback Justin Zwick,
the subject of intensive recruiting, said
on Wednesday that he will play college
football at Ohio State in 2002.
The 6-foot-4, Zwick said he wanted
to stay close to his family, a 90 minute
drive back home. He was also
impressed with new Ohio State head
coach Jim Tressel and the new offen-
sive philosophies which Ohio State
seemed to demonstrate during its
spring game, stressing the pass despite
Ohio State and Tressel's tendency to
favor the run.
Zwick's brother, Jarrod, is a dental
school student at Ohio State and was
coached by Tressel at Youngstown
State. The Zwick family and Tressel

have been close for years and brother
Jarrod's praise of Tressel had an influ-
ence on Zwick's decision.
"I feel comfortable with the coach-
ing staff," Zwick said. "I was working
out with my brother in Youngstown and
got to know coach Tressel and his pro-
gram. He cares more about his players
than anything else."
The 215-pound Zwick, who will be a
senior next football season, said he had
15 to 20 schools recruiting him. Zwick
admitted that arch rival Michigan was
his second choice behind Ohio State
and that is was difficult to call quarter-
back coach Stan Parrish with the news.
Zwick is expected to be the only
Ohio State quarterback recruit in the
2002 recruiting class.
