Linksters fall after fast
start in South Carolina

Softball team splits
Indiana in opener

by Andy De Korte
Daily Sports Writer
When the clubs came out of the
closet for the spring they did not
belie their inactivity. While the
clubs had seen action in a heated
driving range during the winter it
was no substitute for the links.
Seeing its first action of the
spring season at the South Carolina
Women's Invitational, however, the
Michigan women's golf team did
not fall far from its pre-winter
break scores. The field was more
than equal to the Wolverine chal-
lenge as Michigan finished in a tie
for 11th, with a combined score of
983 (319-330-334.)
The hosting South Carolina Lady
Gamecocks, who lost last year's in-
vitational to a last-day round of 299
by Georgia, were again thrown for a
loop. Involved in a furious fracas
with Kentucky and Duke for the
championship, South Carolina
closed within six strokes, but came
up short. The Wildcats prevailed
with a 926, one stroke ahead of the
Gamecocks, and only two strokes
ahead of the Demon Blue Devils.
Although Michigan finished 57
strokes out of first place, they were
in fifth place after the first round,
led by Kristin Beilstein's Wol-
verine low, 77 (85-83). Before the
first round ended, some of the
golfers were greeted by an electrical
rain storm.
Little did Michigan know, after
the storm it would not have the
same energy. The team added eleven
strokes to its first-round score and
four more to its second-round score.
Other than Michigan, only Duke
(303-311-314) failed to improve or
remain at the same plateau as its

first or second-round scores.
"I think they got anxious,"
coach Sue LeClair said. "I was
pleased with the first-round scores,
but the second and third-round
scores were disappointing. We
should've had three (golfers: Becky
Hayes, Erica Zonder, and Kristin
Beilstein) under 80 each round, and
we just didn't."
Zonder continued in her leading
role, driving her team-leading scor-
ing average (80.6) further down by
shooting a 241 (80-78-83) - good
for a 34th-place tie. Zonder holed a
9-iron shot on the fly to score a rare
eagle on the par four, sixth hole.
Hayes kept pace with Zonder
carding a 242 (78-81-83) for a 36th-
place tie. Although under her season
scoring average (81.6) like Zonder,
Hayes shared coach LeClair's disap-
pointment.
"Being the first tournament, it
was hard to chip and putt," Hayes
said. "I expected to shoot all three
rounds under 80."
Citing the tree-studed fairways
as an errant drive grabber, LeClair
said that putting was actually more
of a downfall for the women
golfers.
"Even when Zonder shot her 78,
she had a number of three-putt
greens." LeClair said.
Darcy Chandler (84-86-88) and
Wendy Bigler (89-95-85) also made
the trip to South Carolina.
"It really was a great tourna-
ment. We just didn't perform as
well as we could have," LeClair
said. "It wasn't fatigue, I think they
just weren't competition ready."
Michigan will have a chance to re-
deem itself this weekend in
Bloomington.

Prior to this weekend's Big Ten
opener against Indiana, Michigan
coach Carol Hutchins stressed that
her team needed to play consistently
if it was to be successful.
Unfortunately for Hutchins, the
Wolverines were anything but con-
sistent, winning two of their four
games against the Hoosiers (2-2 in
the Big Ten, 16-16 overall).
Friday, Michigan (2-2, 13-9)
swept both games of its double-
header, 2-0 (in extra innings) and 5-
1. In the first game, Indiana's No. 1
pitcher Christy Brown went the all
the way, succumbing only to an er-
ror and a clutch hit by the
Wolverines in the ninth.
An Indiana error put Michigan
runners on first and third on a play
which would have ended the inning.
The Wolverines then performed a
successful double-steal and fol-
lowed with a run-scoring double

Pitching was again the Wolverines' greatest asset last weekend
against Indiana as Michigan split its four game series. Sophomore Kelly
Forbis started two of the four games for the Wolverines. While she
allowed only two runs in nine and a third innings, Forbis was a victim of
Michigan's inconsistent hitting, earning a no decision and a loss for her
effort.

AUSTIN, Texas - After a mediocre frosh perfor-
mance at the Big Ten Championships, some of those
same swimmers returned to prove their worth at the
NCAA Championships at the University of Texas.
Rodney VanTassell, Brice Kopas, Tim Bower and
redshirt frosh diver Eric Lesser all performed ad-
mirably under the considerable pressure of the meet.
"I think we earned a lot of respect," VanTassell
said.
Both Kopas and Lesser qualified for consolation fi-
nals, Kopas in the 400-yard individual medley with a
personal-best 3:52.08 for a 12th-place, and Lesser on
both the 3-meter and 10-meter platform. Lesser fin-
ished 15th on the 3-meter, with 462.75 points and
scored 390.15 points for 16th atop the 10-meter.
VanTassell, while he did not qualify for any finals,
contributed amply to the Wolverines' sixth-place team
total of 245.5 points. VanTassell anchored Maize and
Blue relays, including the 200-yard and 400-yard med-
ley relays and the 800-yard freestyle relays, which fin-
ished 15th, 10th, and 9th, respectively.
"I was a little bit nervous coming in, my first year,
but I'm happy with the way I swam," he said.
With a season's worth of experience and training
under its belt, the class of '94 looks toward an even'
stronger '91-'92 season.
"Even though we lose Barrowman - he's a great
leader and great inspiration to the team - I think
we'll be even stronger next year. He's a big loss, but I
think the freshman class proved themselves this year,"
VanTassell said.
THUMBS UP FOR BARROWMAN:
Unbeknownst to most, Barrowman swam to his nu-
merous honors despite a torn ligament in his thumb,

Frosh tankers will
keep Blue ahead
which he sustained during his first event of the compe-
tition, the 200 individual medley.
"It hurts like hell. Unbelievable," he said. "But I
cannot and will not let that affect me."
Barrowman ended the meet with his second 200
breaststroke title, a third-place in the 100 breaststroke,
in addition to a curious distinction. By winning the
consolation final of the 200 individual medley,
Barrowman became the first NCAA swimmer to win
the consolation final of the same event four years in a
row.
BAILEY DOUBLE: The NCAAs provided a fam-
ily reunion of sorts for junior Eric Bailey. Bailey's
younger brother, Tom, is a first-year swimmer at
Princeton University.
The frbres Bailey sparkled for their respective
schools. Tom swam leadoff for Princeton's 14th-place
800 freestyle relay while Eric swam the leadoff back-
stroke leg for Michigan's 200 and 400 medley relays,
and won the consolation final in the 200 butterfly
with a 1:46.90, which qualified him for the Olympic
Trials.
TWISTIN' BY THE POOL: The Texas Swim
Band entertained the Texas Swimming Center crowd
with fan favorites such as "Louie Louie," "La Bamba,"
and "Under the Sea," as well as providing the national
anthem.
Incidentally, the band's mind-numbing repetition of
"Texas Fight," the Texas fight song, and the "Hook'
em Horns" sign (made by extending the pinkie and in-
dex fingers), became rather grating to many non-Texas
competitors and fans.
More than one Wolverine was seen discretely re-
sponding to the partisan crowd by adding a third finger
to the Longhorn hand gesture as an expression of his
distaste.

that propelled pitcher Andrea
Nelson to her fourth victory of the
season.
The Michigan bats were alive i
the second game, scoring three time
in the first two innings, en route to
pitcher Julie Clarkson's fourth win.
"In the first game, I felt our de-
fense played well and held us until
the offense could win it in the
ninth," Hutchins said. "In the sec-
ond game, our offense jumped all
over things in the first game."
However, during Saturday's
twin bill, the Wolverines were un9
able to come through with any
clutch hitting. Brown shut down
the Wolverines, 2-1, in game one, al-
lowing only five hits.
In the nightcap, Michigan got
ten hits off Brown (9-8), but the
team was only able to produce one
run. The Wolverines twice stranded
Kari Kunnen on third after she
tripled. rs
"One word sums up (Saturday"
- disappointment," Hutchins said.
"We had our chances, but couldn't
get the key hits like we did Friday.
The challenge is to bounce back
from this pair of losses."
Pac Ten
outruns
Big Ten

Daily Sports Writer
While this past weekend's Big
Ten-Pac Ten challenge at Stanford
provided the men's track team with
its first chance for outdoor compe-
tition, the jury is still out on th
prognosis for the rest of the out-
door season.
"We ran pretty well considering
most of the schools we were com-
peting against had already run in
two to three outdoor meets," assis-
tant coach Ron Warhurst said. "We
haven't had good weather to get in
any quality outdoor training, so we
are not going to be able to know,
anything for a couple of weeks."
Although the Pac Ten team
(consisting of representatives from
Stanford, Oregon, Washington and
Washington State) edged the Big
Ten team by ten points, Michigan
still received some quality perfor-
mances.
In the running events, senior
Neal Newman anchored the winnin
3,200-meter relay team for the Big
Ten posting a time of one minute,
48.8 seconds. Junior Jerry Douglas
anchored the winning shuttle hurdle
relay team for the Big Ten with a
time of 14.01 seconds. Senior Jeff
Barnett also had a strong start for
the outdoor season, placing fourth
in the 3,000-meter steeplechase
posting a time of 9:01.
"The weather conditions were@
excellent for the race," Barnett said.
"This is the best outdoor start I
have had in three years."
In the field events, sophomore
Dan Reddan captured second place in
the high jump clearing 7'1". Junior
Brad Darr took first place in the
pole vault clearing 17' 3/4". In the
javelin, seniors Warde Manuel and
Al Sarafian placed fourth and fifth,
respectively, in their first competi-

tion of the year.
"I did not go as high as I wanted
to," Darr said. "Being the first out-
door meet, it was hard to get used to
the conditions."
