Too bad Xerox doesn't sponsor
the women's lacrosse club. After
winning its weekend matches in
near-duplicate fashion, the club
would be a perfect marketing tool.
After racing out to 5-1 halftime
leads, the Wolverines added five
more second half goals to beat
Purdue and Indiana, 10-1 and 10-5
Michigan improved its record to
4-0-1 on the season.
Against Purdue, Michigan dom-
inated the match early with fast
breaks and aggressive defense. Team
captain Terrn Mucha, along with
Stephanie Andelman, Lia Emanuel
and Jackie Sokolow, lead a balanced
attack for the Wolverines with two

Dorsey said. "I didn't have to work
In the second game against
Indiana, the Wolverines were unable
to generate much offense and fell
behind 1-0. That all changed,
though, when Emanuel gave the
Michigan offense a wake-up call, ty-
ing the game five minutes into the
contest. From there, the Wolverines
began to dominate and once again
posted a 5-1 halftime lead.
"IU came out strong and they
were playing very rough and physi-
cal," Mucha said. "That got us mo-

Michigan seemed to be in con-
trol early in the second half after
scoring two more unanswered goals,
increasing their lead to 7-1. At this
point, though, the copy machine be-
gan to malfunction. Indiana scored
three unanswered goals and cut
Michigan's lead to 7-4. The
Wolverines then revived their ex-
plosive offense with two consecu-
tive goals which put away the
Hoosiers. The teams then traded
goals to make the final score 10-5.
The trio of Mucha, Emanuel and
Andelman repeatedly penetrated
Indiana's defense with shifty one-
on-one moves, allowing them either
to score or set up teammates for

INDIANAPOLIS - When the Michigan women's swimming team
travelled to Indianapolis, they hoped to maintain the consistency of the
last four years with a top ten finish.
Michigan coach Jim Richardson graduated four All-Americans, anF
only expected to be able to finish as high as eighth, with some incredible;
The teams that Michigan - and everyone else - is always chasing are
Texas and Stanford, one of which has won the NCAA Division I Women's
Swimming and Diving Championships every time the competition's
conception 10 years ago.
Why do the Longhorns and the Cardinal have such a stranglehold on the
NCAA swimming title?a
These teams have better swimmers, but ultimately only because they arg,
able to recruit them. The coach is the key to recruiting.
Because Texas coach Mark Schubert and Stanford coach Richard Quick
are recognized as the best coaches of the women's swimming world, they
have the advantage in recruiting the class of women's swimming.
And because these coaches can virtually guarantee improvement anda
great chance to win a national championship, swimmers want to swim for
A lack of unpredictability in recruits keeps other teams from challeng-
ing the powerhouses..
When Richard Quick recruited Summer Sanders, he knew he was getting-
a World Champion. In swimming, coaches generally know what they arg
getting, and the coaches who get to pick first are going to the pick the best
swimmers, and the swimmers will be delighted to swim for him.w
Regardless of any reputation or coach, there are still personal reasons
that influence a prep's choice of schools. However, these too, seem to work
for the "name" schools.
Texas breaststroker Dorsey Tierney said, "Swimming was the major
concern when I was looking at colleges.... It came down to Texas, Stanford;
California, but when I went (to Texas), it was because I had swam with(
people there, and I really liked the campus and the atmosphere."9
Teams in competitive conferences, such as the Big Ten are at a disadvan-
tage when they go to compete at the national meet because they have to
fight to win their conference.
At the start of the year, Michigan coach Jim Richardson's goals were td
win the Big Tens and perform well at the NCAAs. Because his team peaked
at the conference meet, they had to regenerate their best times at the.
But in the Southwest conference, Quick uses the meet only as a time to
prepare and qualify his swimmers for the NCAAs..

The Michigan men's lacrosse
team brought an unfamiliar 1-2
record into their weekend games
against Western Michigan and
Indiana University. The team is
coming off a 15-3 championship
season, one of its most successful in
the club's history.
The Wolverines went into their
weekend contests searching for a
way to spell out victory. After
impressive back to back win's over
Western Michigan 11-8, and Indiana
13-3, the club is learning that the
word victory is spelled T-E-A-M.
"It was a total team effort,"
captain Marc Silbergeld said.
"There were no individual stars this
weekend. Everyone played well."
Silbergeld is one of many
returning seniors on the Michigan
roster. Early season woes forced
team leaders to become motivators.
What the veterans desire most is for
all the players to learn how to play
with intensity and play as a team.
"We have to keep playing as a
team in order to win," Silbergeld
'The young players
played with intensity.
By doing so they the
took pressure off the
The team has some talented first-
and second-year players, but at times
they lack motivation, not playing
within the framework of the team's
system. By doing so the new team
members have placed added pressure
on the older players.
That was not the case this
weekend in the two wins. "The
younger players played with inten-
sity," Silbergeld said, "By doing so
they took pressure off the seniors."
The Wolverines now realize that
the team concept is everything. The
past two games have left the team
very optimistic about the rest of
their season. Silbergeld spoke in a
relieved and confident voice when he
summed up the play of his team this
"Finally everything started to
click and we played like we were
able to," he said.

fying times, mostly set in the Big
"They weren't as aggressive
(coming out of the blocks) as I had
hoped," Richardson said.
"I'm not so sure my preparation
was everything it could have been,
but on the other hand I'm happy
they were able to swim so fast at
Big Tens," he added.
Of course, without those Big Ten
times, many Wolverines would not
have qualified for the NCAAs.
"I am really proud of this<'
team," Richardson said. "This was-
supposed to be a rebuilding year, and.
to suffer this kind of misfortune
and still finish 15th in the nation."
During the championships a$
number of records were set.*
Stanford newcomer Summer
Sanders earned Swimmer-of-the-
Year honors by setting NCAA
records in every event she swam*
(200 TM, 400 IM, and 200
Butterfly). Texas' Cris Ahmann-
Leighton set the NCAA record in
the 100 Fly.
