Golf Team Tries
To Break Jinx

(Continued from Page 4
Coach. Katzenmeyer predicts a
strong team for next season, the'
lineup depending upon how well
the veterans and upcoming soph-
omres do during fall and winter
"The final decision probably will
not be made until the night before
the first tournament," said Kat-
zen meyer, now in his 21st year
as Michigan's head coach.
The nucleus of the team will
be built around Schroeder. "The
strong plus point of John is the
;ental side of his game," accord-
ing to Katzenmeyer, "John is more
mature golf-wise than the other
boys are.,,
Senior Frank Groves is coming
along rapidly and Katzenmeyer
rates him number two on the
squad. Last season for senior John
Richart was disappointing after
showing promise the year before
as a sophomore varsity regular;
unless he can drive himself men-
tally, his scores fluctuate from
meet to meet, according to Kat-
Among the sophomores return-
ing to thq varsity, Rod Sumpter
rates as the most consistent golfer.
Harry Englehart and Mark Chris-
tensen stil have a ways to go be-
fore they can guarantee them-
selves starting positions they held
this last year.
Dave Graff played in a couple of
the eight-man meets with MSU
and will face stiff competition
from sophomores for varsity slots
next year. And Katzenmeyer ex-

pects the varsity crew to be great-
ly enlarged by the talented crop
of last year's freshmen.
Top prospects among the soph-
omores include Terry Becker from
Saginaw; Gene Dink of Omak,
Wash.; Randy Erskine from
Battlecreek; Rocky Posa of De-
troit; Merton Goode from Flint;
and Keith Mohan from Grand
"The sophomores have to see
action during the season and it'll
probably be a dogfight right up
to the night before the Big Ten
chapionship," said Katzenmeyer.
"Even with a complete reurning
squad, you have to give new play-
ers a break or you'll get yourself
in that bind that graduation will
take half your squad with experi-
enced players to fall back upon."
Michigan is in about the best
position of any major Big Ten
golf power. Champion Purue lost
three players, including standout
Mayhew. Ohio State and Indiana
will form probably the strongest
Curiously, coach Katzenmeyer
has never had a collegiate star
turn professional in his more than
two decades at Michigan. His own
philosophy of golf may be partly
"I've never encouraged a boy to
turn professional," he said. "I'm
convinced that education is the
best thing they can get out of
Michigan and that education com-
bined with golf as a avocation-
not a vocation-will enable them
to prosper far more than by turn-
ing professional."

Hockey Team Faces
Lack of 'Superstar'

age. Herman played 13 games,
stopped 385 shots, and allowed 4.00
goals per game. Keough also had
two shutouts to his credit.
On the goaltending situation,
Renfrew remarks, "If we find that
one boy is playing better than the
other this season, we will plan to
go with only one goalie. If one
of them can assert himself, he
should be able to play every game.
Without a doubt, it's better' to use
the same netminder all the time."
No Superstar
Overall, there doesn't appear to
be any superstar "number 9s" on
the roster, but, according to Ren-
frew, "we'll be good, we'll be fast
and we'll be balanced.
"We've got to have a good
skating team--we are not losing
any speed. As for added scoring
punch, there is hope among some
of the sophomore players."
Top frosh prospect is high-
scoring forward Dave Perrin from
Dresdan, Ontario. Perrin has play-
ed junior Canadian hockey with
Chatham, and, in Renfrew's words,
"has good quickness and shooting
power." He scored four goals in
last- year's two freshman games.
Other rookies on this season's
squad include Don Deeks from
Vancouver, a forward especially
noted for his checking ability;
Barney Pascak, former member of
the Calvary Buffaloes' junior
hockey team; Doug Glendinning
from Dundee, Illinois, and Dave
Rosichek of St. Paul, Alberta.-
Also joining the club are twin
brothers Doug and Don Heyliger,
sons of former Michigan coach Vic
Al of the sophs are experienced
forwards, but no promising de-
fensemen or goalies are coming up
this year.

Renfrew expects to "count heav-
ily on the sophs to fill in the holes.
The sophomores were the key to
our success last year and we hope
for a repeat performance this time.
"We don't have any stars," sighs
the Wolverine mentor, "but neither
does one else in the WCHA. North
Dakota has no outstanding indi-
viduals, but they have good overall
balance. Denver and Dakota will
most likely be the teams to beat
'"Minnesota and Duluth will be
greatly improved this year-both
have fine frosh players coming up.
Our arch-rivals Michigan State
and Michigan Tech are losing
heavily to graduation, but both
will be tought as usual."
One of the highlights of the up-
coming season will be the first Big
Ten Tournament, to be played in
Minnesota over the Christmas
holidays. WCHA members, Michi.
gan, MSU and Minnesota will field
teams, along with new entries
from Wisconsin and Ohio State.
The latter two have been develop-
ing teams over the past three or
four years and are almost ready
for league competition.
Renfrew expects the tourney to
"raise interest in Big Ten hockey
and do a lot of good as far as
bringing kids into the conference."
The regular season will open on
November 24 with a home game
against McMaster University and
will end March 16 with the NCAA
Championship at Duluth.
The roster is complete and so
is the schedule. Now the only
question remaining is whether or
not the Wolverines can rediscover
the secret they lost up in Hough-
ton last winter, and regain the
necessary balance of spirit and
ability which guarantees a cham-

The NCAA eliminated the tram-

is too dangerous.
It also recommended that the
tramp be outlawed from dual meet
competition. If the Big Ten acts
on such a proposal, it could prac-
tically snuff out any Wolverine
title plans.
