Seniors swim in last home meet

by Adam Miller
Daily Sports Writer
For the Michigan men's swim-
ming and diving team, this week-
end is a dual-dual-duel.
The Wolverines face two dual-
meet battles in two days: tonight
at 6 p.m. at Canham Natatorium
against Oakland University and
tomorrow at 1 p.m. at Ohio State.
Tonight's meet is the last home
appearance for the seniors. World-
record breaststroker Mike Barrow-
man, freestylists Scott Van Apple-
dorn and Jarret Winter, and diver
Steve Hamerski will be competing
in Ann Arbor for the last time.
While Urbanchek described
tonight's meet as a "final tune-up"
for the upcoming Big Ten tourn-
ament, it should be anything but a
cakewalk. Oakland placed second

at the Division II NCAA finals,
and this meet gives the squad a
chance to avenge its drubbing in
the Michigan Invitational earlier
this season.
Furthermore, tonight's meet
will feature the 200-yard freestyle
sprint relay. Michigan usually
.doesn't prepare for this event,
while Oakland holds the national
record. According to Michigan
assistant coach Mark Noetzel, the
Wolverines lineup for the relay
remains undecided.
Tomorrow, Michigan faces
Ohio State, the surprise team of
the Big Ten. Earlier this season,
the Buckeyes defeated Indiana for
the first time in 35 years.
Michigan, on the other hand,
hasn't lost to Ohio State since
1962. But Noetzel cautioned
against assuming another easy
Michigan victory.
"After competing against Stan-
ford, Berkeley, and Texas, we

might have a tendency to take
them (the Buckeyes) lightly," he
said. "But we can't do that. We'll
have to respond as best we can
down there."
Ohio State poses a stiff
challenge for the divers too. Diving
coach Dick Kimball is confident
about tonight's meet against Oak-
land, but feels that a win in Co-
lumbus will be tougher to come by.
"We already beat Oakland ear-
lier (at the Michigan Invitation-
al)," he said, "but Ohio State has
two really fine divers. They're
probably the favorite to win the
Big Ten."
Urbanchek remains unfazed by
Michigan's difficult task to com-
pete against two top teams in less
than 24 hours, especially with the
second meet on the road.
"That's just the way the pro-
gram is," he said. "At the Big
Tens and NCAAs, you can some-
times have four races in 24 hours."

Athletic
deLpt. to
dedi~cate
Sbldg.
by Matt Rennie
Daily Sports Writer
While former Michigan foot-
ball coach Bo Schembechler
may have fallen out of favor
with much of the public, he is
still loved by his former athletic
department.
Associate athletic director
Fritz Seyferth announced at
yesterday's Board in Control of
Intercollegiate Athletics meeting
that the official dedication of the
Michigan football building as
"Schembechler Hall" will take
place Wednesday, May 29.
The building, informally
knownas the "Center of Cham-
pions," is a state-of-the-art foot-
ball training facility which
became operational this year.
The dedication ceremony will
be open to the public and willy
include tours of the building. The
actual ceremony will take place
inside the adjoining Oosterbaan
Field House in order to accom-
modate the anticipated crowd.
The speakers who will pay
tribute to Schembechler include
former President Gerald Ford,
Detroit Tiger owner Tom Mona-
ghan, and University President
James Duderstadt.
In other business, Weiden-
bach reported that the instal-
lation of Prescription Athletic
Turf in Michigan Stadium is
progressing on schedule.
Part of the installation
process includes the lowering of
the playing field. This is wel-
come news for fans whose seats
are in the first 15 rows. In the
past, the sight lines from these
seats offered a limited view of
the playing field.
"There are sections of the
stadium now where Row 1 is as
good a seat as you can get,"
Weidenbach said.

Well-rested women take on
Northern Illinois, WMU

Kass, Brakus hope to avenge
defeats as men battle Badgers

i

Daily Sports Writer
Before the Michigan women's
tennis team can take its trip to
Florida over spring break, the
Wolverines must take care of
business in Ann Arbor.
A well-rested Michigan squad
will host Northern Illinois tomor-
row night, and then return to the
court Sunday afternoon to compete
against Western Michigan.
The Wolverines have not com-
peted in two weeks, but coach

Bitsy Ritt believes that they are
ready for this weekend's matches.
"I think we're in good shape,"
Ritt said. "The players have been
conditioning very hard. It's been a
good week of practice."
Michigan hopes to solidify its
starting lineup this weekend. Ritt
must decide on the number one
singles position. Junior Lindsay
Aland, currently ranked eleventh
in the midwest, has held the top
position in Michigan's two pre-
vious spring dual matches.
This weekend, last year's num-
ber one player, junior Christine
Schmeidel (No. 5 in midwest),
returns from an injury and will
challenge to retake the top spot.

Daily Sports Writer
Only two days after its 6-0
sweep of Kalamazoo, the Mich-
igan men's tennis team will take
on Big Ten rival Wisconsin tonight
in the teams' second meeting in
two weeks.
The two teams met for the first
time in Lansing during the Big Ten
Championships, in which Mich-
igan's No. 1 singles player, junior
David Kass, was defeated by
Wisconsin's Jack Waite in the
finals of the singles competition 6-
7, 6-3, 7-6. Coach Brian Eisner
feels that Kass, ranked ninth
nationally, should improve his
performance in the rematch.
"We know Jack (Waite's)

game very well and we know what
needs to be done," Eisner said.
"He (Kass) just has to play his
own game."
Picked fifth in the Big Ten
preseason polls, the young Mich-
igan team managed to send four
players to the quarterfinals of the
singles tournament, with frosh
Danny Brakus advancing to the
semifinals.
Brakus, playing second singles
this weekend, has previously de-
feated Wisconsin's No. 2 player.
Eisner is unsure whether the
Badgers will run their traditional
lineup.
"It doesn't make much of a
difference (who I play). If I play a
solid match, I should do well,"
Brakus said.
Kass and Brakus will team up
at No. 1 doubles. Eisner is still
unsure who will play in the No. 2
and No. 3 positions which have
been switching since the beginning
of the season.
