take meet
from IU,
by Josh Dubow

The Michigan wrestling team
(6-2) rebounded from two straight
losses and opened their Big Ten
season last night with a 21-15 vic-
tory at Indiana (1-4).
The Wolverines won despite
forfeiting six points at the 118-
pound weight class because of an
injury to Mike Mihalic. Salem
'Yaffai moved up to 126 from his
usual spot at 118 and scored a ma-
jor decision.
"We felt Salem had a better
chance at 126," coach Dale Bahr
said. "They are much stronger at
118 than 126."
The Wolverines were trailing,
15-10, through the first seven
.matches, but pulled through in the
heavier classes.
With our problems at 126, we
-knew that we would need the up-
per weights to come through for
us," Bahr said. "We had to keep it
close and pull it out late."
And they did. Lanny Green
(177) and Fritz Lehrke (190)
-scored major decisions and Phil
Tomek (HWT) also pulled out a
First-year 158-pounder Sean
Bormet, ranked eighth in the na-
tion, extended his undefeated streak
in dual meet matches to eight, and
improved his record to 19-3 by de-
feating Indiana All-American
Casey Graham.
Michigan sophomores James
Rawls (142) and Brian Harper
(150) both suffered 3-2 defeats at
the hands of Indiana All-Ameri-
cans Jeff Lyons and Adam Cald-
well, respectively. Rawls, who
leads Wolverine wrestlers in victo-
ries, fell to 20-5 overall.
Michigan's other victory came
from sophomore Joey Gilbert
(134) in an 11-4 decision over Lou
Michigan continues its road
trip this weekend at Illinois

Runners seek season
boost at 'M' Relays

Wolverine swimmers Mike Barrowman and Eric Wunderlich practice at Canham Natatorium.
California's just another meet

by Kevin Sundman
Daily Sports Writer
In Jack Harvey's 16 years as
head coach of the Michigan men's
track program, his teams captured
nine Big-Ten championships - six
outdoor and three indoor. However,
a fifth-place showing last season is
the latest sign pointing to the fact
that Harvey's teams have been in
a drought since 1983.
This Saturday, the Wolverines
host seven schools in the Michigan
Relays. Although team scores for
the meet will not be kept, Harvey
still considers the competition
important to his team.
"This is a good meet for us,"
Harvey said. "We hope to see
some improvement over what we
have done, but it might be too
early to expect great perfor-
Seniors Brad Barquist, Neal
Newman, and Brad Holwerda lead
a talented Wolverine squad, along
with juniors Brad Darr and Jerry
Barquist, a cross country All-
American this fall, leads a
distance core that should be one of
the team's largest assets.
"Anytime you come off a
second place finish in the cross

country Big Ten (meet)," Harvey
said, "you know they will
definitely be a strong force."
Newman, who finished second
in the Big Ten meet in the 800
meter race last year, made an
impressive season debut last week.
He captured the 800-meter in a
time one second slower than his
career best.
The team is also well-stocked
in field events, especially in the
high jump, where both Holwerda
and sophomore Dan Reddan have
soared above seven feet.
In the pole vault, Darr and
redshirt frosh Toby Van Pelt are
expected to lead a talented
contingent of vaulters. Last season,
Darr was an NCAA qualifier and a
second-place finisher at the Big
Ten meet.
"There's no doubt that these are
the guys very capable of being Big
Ten contenders and possible point-
scorers at the NCAA meet,"
Harvey said. "But the key to our
team will be for some of the other
guys to make substantial improve-
ment this season. This will be the
key between a fourth or fifth place
finish and a possible first or second
place finish."

For most students a weekend
jaunt to California, particularly
when school is in session, would
constitute a major trip. But not for
With the men's swimming
team returning from winter-training
in Hawaii and three swimmers just
arriving from the World Swimming
Championships in Perth, Australia,
a trip to California seems unim-
A squad of seventeen swimmers
left Thursday for California to
compete against Stanford on Friday
and Berkeley on Saturday.
Both Stanford's and Berkley's
swimming programs, ranked 2nd and
9th in the nation respectively,
command the same respect as the
Wolverines, currently 5th. Michigan
is the only team in the top ten that
is not from the Sunbelt.
Three straight Michigan wins
against Stanford in the last three
years may provide some motivation
for Stanford. The Wolverines also
posted a victory against Berkeley last
However, Michigan does not lack
motivation. At the NCAA
tournament last year, the Wolverines
finished fourth, only one and a half
points behind third-place Stanford.
The swimmers returning from the
World Championships, Mike
Barrowman, Eric Wunderlich, and
Eric Namesnik, must prepare
themselves for a collegiate meet.

Barrowman summed up the
threesome's attitude by saying,
"When we get there, we'll be ready."
On the differences between the
two meets, Eric Namesnik said, "I
like college swimming probably
more than U.S. swimming, just be-
cause, it's a great feeling, you're
with a bunch of guys pulling for the
same thing, it's just a lot more

*Freestyler Brian Gunn has spe-
cific goals in mind. "Certainly, we
want to come home with two wins,
or at least a split, and personally I
want to continue to improve in my
events (500 and 1000 meter

weekend sweep coach Jon Urbanchek

Canham to provide welcome
home for women vs. Spartans

by Jason Gomberg
Daily Sports Writer
Last weekend in California, the
Michigan women's swim team was
"treated" to a re-creation of the
San Francisco earthquake by two
giants of collegiate swimming.
Tonight at the Canham Natato-
rium, the team seeks to regain its
footing as it meets the Michigan
State Spartans.
After returning from a training
session in Hawaii, the Wolverines
swam against third-ranked Univer-
sity of California at Berkeley last
Friday. The jet-lagged Wolverines
provided a competitive match in
defeat, closer than the 197-103
outcome indicated. Coach Jim
Richardson said it was "an inter-
esting meet to watch, with a lot of
close races that went right down to
the wall.
"We just lost all of them."
The next day, second-rated
Stanford was in Richardson's

words "even less hospitable." The
roof caved in on the Maize and
Blue as the training, travel, three
hotel changes, and the bitter loss
of the previous night culminated in
a gruesome and dominating dis-
play of Stanford's excellence. The
final tally was 222-78, or as
Richardson put it, "A whole lot to
not very much."
However, the team viewed its
trip as a success. The seeds for
speed work were planted on a solid
endurance base. As for the debacle
in California, a dejected Richard-
son maintained the team's stance
that priming the team for the post-
season might mean taking its
lumps against faster teams.
Against Michigan State, a
squad the Wolverines have yet to
face this season, they will rely on
December Big Ten Swimmer of
the Month, junior backstroker Lisa
Anderson, to lead the charge.
