NCAA Div. I Men: Michigan Defeats Northwestern, 153-132

ANN ARBOR, MI., Jan. 31. THE No. 4-ranked University of Michigan men's swimming and diving team remained undefeated in Big Ten dual meet action with a 153-132 home victory over Northwestern on Friday at Canham Natatorium.

The Wolverines took the top spot in nine of the first 12 events and exhibitioned the final four of the meet.

Heading up Michigan's top finishers was junior diver Jason Coben, who won both the one- and three-meter springboard events with NCAA zone diving qualifying marks.

Coben won the one-meter springboard with a season-best and NCAA zone diving qualifying mark of 343.58. His score bettered the field by nearly 49 points as runner-up Michael Oxman posted a score of 294.00. Coben's previous season-best score on the one-meter board was 337.42 at Texas (Nov. 22).

Coben nearly set another season best with a score of 347.85 in the three-meter event, earning his second victory in the Dick Kimball Diving Well. His mark was only 0.90 points shy of his season-best score of 348.75, also set at Texas. Coben's score was 36 points better than Oxman's runner-up performance of 311.40.

Senior Garrett Mangieri was the Wolverines' leading man in the pool with a pair of individual freestyle titles. He claimed the top spot in both the 50 and 100 yard freestyles, touching the wall in 21.14 and 45.88, respectively. Mangieri was also part of Michigan's fastest relay teams. He anchored the winning 400 medley squad (3:19.14) and swam opening leg of the exhibitioned 400 freestyle relay team that posted the event's fastest time (3:01.95).

Fellow seniors Jeff Hopwood, a Califronia native from Stanford country (Palo Alto) and Josh Hack plus freshmen Peter Vanderkaay and rookie Chris DeJong — a local productr from Holland, MI. who has been swimming well for the Blue this season in the backstroke races — were Michigan's other event winners.

Earning runner-up finishes for victors were seniors Mike Porth, Ryan Earhart, Tony Kurth, sophomore Nicholas Douville and freshmen Davis Tarwater — a Tennessee native who was the nation's fastest prep 100 flyer last season and on whom Wolverine coach Jon Urbancek is hoping will make a major impact at the Big 10 Championshipsthe final weekend of this month in this same pool.

Michigan closes out its dual-meet schedule today (Feb. 1) against traditional Big 10 opponent Ohio State and will recognize its seven seniors who will be swimming in their final home dual meet at Canham Natatorium. The Wolverines' seven honorees will be Justin Drake (Phoenix, Ariz./Arcadia HS), Earhart, Hack, Hopwood, Kurth, Mangieri and co-captain Heath Novak (Allison Park, Pa./North Allegheny HS).
