Taken with Narrow i Margins After winning or losing each race by fractions of a second, the women ' s swimming and diving team has high hopes for the BigTen Championship. By Han Ching-Lin A strong bond throughout the season held the women ' s swimming and diving team together. " You would think that spending five hours a day it the pool, living together, and going to school together would cause us to et on each other ' s nerves, but it is just the opposite. Our best friends are Dur teammates and on the one night a week that we go out, we go out with teammates, " said LSA senior Erin Abbey, one of the team captains. Although the Wolverines were not able to overtake the Florida Gators in their season opener, they displayed a strong effort, winning three events in a row, and four total. Kinesiology junior Tealin Kelemen, who took the three-meter diving title, expressed her excitement for the new season. " 1 am excited to see how much we can improve this season, with a new coach and a different angle on the things we need to work on and (improve, " said Kelemen, who went on to win the first Big Ten Diver of the Week Award for the 2002-2003 season. Chris Bergere was the new head coach of the Wolverines ' diving programs. Taking over for Dick Kimball, who had guided the program for 43 years, Bergere expressed his honor and excitement to be working with the Wolverines. At the Nike Cup, hosted by North Carolina, the Wol- verines put on a strong show as they finished in third place, with Kelemen winning the five-meter diving, and Abbey taking second place in the 200- yard backstroke. " I think that our most interesting meet of the season and one that we are looking forward to will be against Notre Dame in February. They beat us by a little every year, but this year we are stronger in certain areas than they are and have an opportunity to challenge them for the win. And as always, Big Tens are the culmination of the season, " said Abbey. " The motto ' on a mission ' makes us believe we can conquer anything if we have faith in our training and in each other. It is what binds us together and sets us apart from our competition. " With the encouragement of her teammates, freshman Elsa Larson pushes herself to break her best time in the breaststroke during practice. Larson finished 13th in the 200-yard breaststroke at the Nike Cup J.

By Chelsea Anderson Beginning the season with wins over Eastern Michigan, Florida, and Michigan State, the Wolverines had a strong start towards another successful season. The team defeated No. 1 Texas in a nail-biting finish 123-120 after pulling out the win in the final event: 400-yard freestyle relay. The team finished with a record of 3-0 and 1-0 in the Big Ten. Consisting of seven freshmen, eight sophomores, six juniors, and seven seniors, the team was most likely the most talented assem- bled at Michigan in years. " We pulled the best freshman class in the country. That ' s one of the reasons we are doing so well, " said Junior Dan Ketchum. " We have four outstanding freshmen, Davis Tarwa- Jhii.s Dejong, Tyler DeBerry, and Peter Vaderkaay, who are going to make a difference on the outlook of our season. Even though they are freshmen, they have international experi- ence and are excellent competitors, " said coach Jon Urbanchek. In addition to depth within the under- classmen, eyes were also on senior captain Jeff Hopwood and junior Dan Ketchum. Hopwood swam the breaststroke and individual medley, and qualified for the NCAA in both 100 and 200 breaststroke early in the season. According to Urbanchek, Hopwood came back from a past injury stronger and more dedicated than before with the desire to excel. As co-captain, he gave Michigan the needed leadership for good stu- dent athletes. As for Ketchum, Urbanchek said, " Dan is an awesome competitor who will do any- thing for the team. He is extremely strong when it comes to relays and is the kind of guy you want anchoring your relay. " Ket- chum, who was a distance swimmer, also qualified for 200 butterfly and 200 and 500 freestyle in the NCAA. In addition, Ketchum was the Michigan Athlete of the Year in 2001. " After next year, I would like to stay on for six months and try out for the Olympics, " said Ketchum. As for the entire team, they were extremely excited for the hosting of the Big Ten meet here in Ann Arbor. " Win- ning the Big Ten in this pool was a team goal and a huge accomplishment, " said Ketchum. 154 MlCHIGANENS IAN

Sec- onds after the heroic save, Anaheim ' s David Bell scored in the seventh inning of Game Five. AP photo super bowl In a game that gave truth to the phrase " defense wins champion- ships, " the Tampa Bay Buccaneers toppled the Oakland Raiders 48-21 to give the franchise its first Super Bowl win. Of a record five intercep- tions, three were returned for touch- downs and two were caught by game MVP Dexter Jackson. The five were the most against the Oakland quarterback in a game all season. " We were just absolutely terrible, " Gannon told the Los Angeles Times. " It was a nightmarish performance. " Tampa Bay held Oakland to a low 62 yards in a first half where veterans Jerry Rice and Tim Brown were inef- fective. Despite falling to five sacks, Gannon still completed 24-44. Giv- ing the Raiders an early lead, former Wolverine Charles Woodson caught the Oakland ' s lone interception that set up a field goal. But Tampa Bay answered and dominated.

For the first time in franchaise history, the Angels won the World Series after Garrett Anderson hit a three-run double to drive in Game 7 ' s winning runs. In the comeback story of the season, Anaheim bounced back from a record-worst start, 6-14, to win a record-best, 99 games. Then, in Game 6 of the Series, the Angels were down 5 runs in the seventh inning facing elimination when Scott Spiezio ' s three-run homer cut San Francisco ' s lead to two. The bottom of the eighth saw Darrin Erstad hit a single homerun and a Garrett Anderson base hit that was fumbled by Barry Bonds, allowing runners on first and third. Finally, Giants ' pitcher Robb Nen relieved Tim Worrell in hopes of securing a San Francisco vic- tory. But Nen gave up a two-run double to Series MVP Tony Glaus that secured the game for Anaheim. " This championship was about 25 guys on the field giving everything they had, " Anaheim ' s Mike Scioscia told the San Francisco Chronicle. " Winning the World Series is about the players on the field. I ' ve never been around a group of guys who have worked so hard for a goal. "
