'M' baseball singin'
the blues in the rain

,,

If it has seemed like the Michi-
g'n men's swimming season has
been going on for a long time, well,
that would be because it has.
About five months' worth of
5:30 wakeup calls, endless miles of
training, and countless trips around
tho world all come to a head at the
NCAA Swimming and Diving
Championships, beginning today in
stin, Texas. The Wolverines
will attempt to run their streak of
top-five NCAA performances to
four.
To get to this point, Michigan
has fought through injury, the
early season absence of senior cap-
itan Mike Barrowman, and has had
to deal with the graduation of
four-time NCAA champ Brent
9.
Without Lang, the NCAA's
premier sprinter last season, the
Wolverines failed to qualify either
a 200 freestyle relay or a 400
freestyle relay.
Nonetheless, Michigan, winner
of the recent Big Ten Champ-
ionships, is ready for the big dance.
"There's only one thing that's
:important - to swim fast - and I
hink our team is ready to go,"
Michigan coach Jon Urbanchek
said.

Yesterday afternoon, the
Michigan baseball team played like
the weather - dreary. The
Wolverines (11-7) completed a five-
game home stand with an 8-3 loss to
Western Michigan (6-8).
. The Broncos capitalized on
Michigan's miscues by jumping out
to an early lead against Michigan
starter Brian Feldman.
"We had some chances, but
didn't make the plays," Michigan
coach Bill Freehan said. "When they
had the opportunities, they took ad-
vantage."
After Scott Conant and Chris
Demetral opened the game with sin-
gles, Brian Hostetler laid down a
sacrifice bunt that first baseman
Andy Feldman booted for an error,
which loaded the bases. Conant
scored on a Jeff Noom sacrifice fly,
but the Wolverines averted major
damage when, after Jeff Dahley
doubled in Demetral, right fielder
Pat Maloney gunned down Hos-
tetler at the plate to end the inning.
Michigan drew even in the bot-
tom of the first. Tim Flannelly
drove a 2-1 pitch over the 330-foot
sign in right field for a two-run
dinger to tie the game.
Feldman went through the next
two innings with little difficulty,
allowing only one single. Freehan
replaced Feldman with Eric
Heintschel to start the fourth, and

after retiring the first four batters
he faced, Heintschel started to
struggle.
Following a Matt Terrell bunt
single, Heintschel walked Steve
Sallee, and gave up an RBI double to.
Conant. Western scored two more 2
runs in the inning on a groundout '
and wild pitch.
Heintschel excelled with no
runners on base - retiring seven of
nine baters in that situation - but
struggled with men on base and was ;
pinned with the loss.
The Wolverines mounted a few
threats against Western starter,
Scott DeRussell, but could not put
any runners across the plate.
Michigan rallies in the third and
fifth innings were quelled by a run-
ner caught stealing and a double
play. But Michigan's best chance
was in the sixth inning, where with
the aid of two Western errors and a
hit batsmen, the bases were full
with two down when Scott
Winterlee bounced to third to end
the inning.
Marty Ray relieved DeRussell
to open the seventh, and, except for
an unearned run in the eighth, faced
little trouble in posting his first
save.
The Wolverines' third pitcher,
Brent Cymbalski, also struggled as
the Broncos struck for three runs -
two earned - against Cymbalski in
his three innings of work. Bryan
Santo pitched an uneventful ninth to
close the day out for Freehan, and
his search for a fourth starter is
still on.
"We wanted to pitch a lot of
guys, to see who we can count on in
the future," Freehan said. "Nobody
did anything out there to earn that
job."

The men's swimming team ventures

In addition, Urbanchek's three
World Championship swimmers,
Barrowman, Eric Namesnik and
Eric Wunderlich, have had to cram
a season's worth of training into
about two months. Despite the
handicap, Urbanchek likes what he
sees.

letes should be able to win at least
one of their favored events," he

said.
For Barrowman, defending
champ and American record holder
in the 200-yard breaststroke, this
weekend marks the last time he
will swim for the Maize and Blue.
"This is my last chance as a
team player for a long time,"
Barrowman said, "so it means
almost everything to me to do as
best we can at NCAAs."

Doing the best they can proba-
bly means finishing in the top
seven. With the team title virtu-
ally being conceded to host Texas,
and second place to USC, Barrow-
man expects a "dogfight" for the
next five spots, where Michigan
will scratch and claw with the
likes of Tennessee, Cal-Berkeley,
Stanford, and Florida.

SWIMMING NOTEBOOK

Vichigan sends record
number to NCAAs

INDIANAPOLIS - When the Michigan women's swimming team
travelled here to the Indiana University Natatorium for the NCAA
Swimming and Diving Championships last weekend, they actually did set a
*am record.
Twelve swimmers and two divers made the journey - more Wolverine
representatives than ever before.
Only Texas, Stanford, and California, which finished first, second, and
fourth, brought more swimmers.
Bringing such a large squad, which included eight individual qualifiers,
also a record, may make the Wolverines' 15th-place finish seem
disappointing. But the difference in the numbers is slightly misleading.
Michigan only brought two seniors, Minoo Gupta and Julie Schnorberger,
neither of whom competed in individual events. The aforementioned
uccessful schools brought at least four seniors who combined for over 100
ints for their respective teams.
While the disparity hurt Michigan's performance this year, the
Wolverines will return 10 of the 12 swimmers and both divers with
another year of experience.
NEW REGULATIONS; When junior All-American Lisa Anderson was
disqualified for her turn with 50 yards to go during the finals of the 200
yard backstroke, she became the first and only person disqualified under the
new backstroke turn restrictions at the meet.
Under the new restrictions, the shoulders must pass under the vertical
bar of the hand touch.
Assuming the disqualification did not aid her swim, Anderson would
have finished fifth at 2:00.36, 0.86 seconds behind Sidney Brinson of Texas.
:10TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION: Friday, the NCAA held an
"Alumni Reception" at the National Art Museum of Sport in Indiana-
pdlis to celebrate the 10th anniversary of women's athletics in the NCAA.
Tracy Caulkins, former NCAA champion for Florida, and current
Amperican recordholder in the 400-yard individual medley, spoke at the
reception.
r Earlier in the evening, Caulkins presented the awards to the winner of
tle 200-yard medley relay. Ironically, Caulkins saw her seven-year-old
record in the 200-yard individual medley fall the day before, to first-year
*henom, Summer Sanders.
LSA STUDENTS
It has come to the attention of the LS&A Curriculum Committee that some
final exams have been re-scheduled in previous semesters at times other
{Than those posted in the Time Schedule.
The Curriculum Committee views this as a trend that may not be in your best
interests. Re-scheduling exams into earlier time periods may mean that
you will lose the final class period; it may mean thatyou are denied review

to know what the regulations are with regard to this practice and to know
your rights as students.
The Faculty Code says:
An instructor may not depart from the official schedule unless prior
approval of the Final Examination Committee is obtained.

Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Lou
Holtz and Luther Darville, long
gone from the University of
Minnesota, still had a major impact
Wednesday when the NCAA placed
the school on probation for two
years and banned its football team
from making a 1991 postseason ap-
pearance.
Some of the 17 rule violations
cited by the NCAA Committee on
Infractions involved the basketball
and wrestling programs. The bas-
ketball team was stripped of one
scholarship next year and the
wrestling team lost its right to in-
teract with a campus wrestling
club.
A three-year investigation,
which hasalready cost the univer-
sity $462,000 and will amount to
about $600,000 before all bills are
paid, unearthed the violations.
The probe was initiated only one
month after the school received
three years' probation in March
1988 for basketball and football vi-
olations that occurred primarily
from 1982-86.
"I'm embarrassed personally and
I'm embarrassed for the institu-
tion," said Rick Bay, men's athletic-
director. "I hope this is the last
time we will all be meeting like
this."

Minnesota could have been pe-
nalized much more severely but the
NCAA was lenient because the
school cooperated and launched its
own investigation.
"This is a unique case where it is
appropriate to impose penalties that
differ from the full set of minimum
penalties otherwise required," the
committee wrote in its 22-page re-
port. "Further, the committee has
determined that it is not appropriate
to apply the minimum penalties for
repeat violators to this case."
The university could have lost
more scholarships, could have re-
ceived postseason bans in all three
sports and could have been kept off
television. In addition, coaches
could have been suspended or fired.
Theoretically, the dreaded "death
penalty" for repeat offenders could
even have been imposed.
"While we regret having been
penalized, I think we've been treated
fairly," university president Nils
Hasselmo said. "I think the good
news, the real news, here is that
given the kinds of penalties that
could have been imposed ... we have
been given the benefit of the doubt."
The committee found that
Holtz, who left Minnesota for

NCAA ax
Notre Dame in November 1985, had
given $250 cash to an athlete to pay
for a course that allowed the athlete
to remain eligible for competition.
Holtz also was found to have
given between $25 and $40 to
Roselle Richardson to reimburse
the former quarterback for the loss
of a wallet.
"I made two errors of judg-
ment," Holtz said at a news at
South Bend, Ind., adding that the
payments were made for humanitar-
ian reasons and not to gain a compet-
itive advantage.
Minnesota's investigation al-
leged that Holtz also gave $500 to
former academic advisor LeRoy
Gardner to give to foner receiver
Jerry Keeble. Holtz denied that and
the infractions committee removed
it from the list of violations.
Most major infractions involved
Darville, former acting director of
the university's Office of Minority
and Special Student Affairs.
He was found to have given
about $3,700 to athletes from the
OMSSA's special loan account,
about $6,700 in benefits to 10 ath-
letes through the manipulation of
journal voucher payments and at
least $9,000 in other loans and pay-
ments to other athletes.
