THE MICHIGAN DAILY

By GARY WRIGHT
"Whitewash" was the word this
weekend as Michigan's tennis
team opened its season with easy
victories over Ohio State, Minne-
sota and Todedo.
However, Michigan's true power
won't be known until late this
afternoon when Notre Dame, one
of the finest tennis teams in the
nation, moves into Ann Arbor to
face the Wolverines.
Skein Snapped by Irish
It was these same Irish that
snapped Michigan's 47 consecutivej
dual-match win skein at the
Cherry Blossom Festival Tourna-
ment last May to the tune of 7-2.
Notre Dame completely domi-
nated play as Bob Sassone in the
third singles and John Wiley and
George Korol in the third doublesI
were the only Michigan nettersI
able to post victories.
Impressive Sweep
The Wolverines enter today's
match on the heels of last week-
end's impressive sweep.
The Buckeyes of Ohio State
were first to succumb to Coach
Bill Murphy's netters. With Cap-
tain Jon Erickson showing the
way by winning the first singles
in straight sets, 6-2, 6-5, the Wol-
verines proceeded to sweep the
match with little opposition.
Four newcomers received their
first starting assignments, and all
came through in fine style. Soph-

omore Gerry Dubie gave the fans and Dubie further the Wolverines
a further hint of what was to j on their way to their first white-
come as he easily took the second washing as they won their match,

The Wolverine baseball team
heads for Detroit today to engage
Wayne State in the second game
of this year's home and home
series.,
In the first game of the series
the "M" nine came out on top 4-2

Rugby Club

Trips Toronto
The Ann Arbor Rugby and
Cricket Club, composed of Michi-
gan students, defeated the Univer-
sity of Toronto rugby team Sun-
day, 10-0.
Ann Arbor Wing Forward Rob-
bie Burnette opened the scoring
with two quick "tries" for three
points a piece halfway through the
second half, breaking a scoreless
tie. Player-Coach Bert Sugar made
both conversions, for two points
apiece, to finish out the scoring.
Toronto never quite made it in
the first half, although they had
a number of scoring opportunities.
They received two penalty kicks
late in the half, but missed both.
Ann Arbor then took over the of-
fensive in the second half to win.

Field. In that game Nick Liakonas,
Al Koch and Bob Marcereau lim-
ited the Detroiters to nine hits,
but had to put down a ninth inning
Wayne uprising to win.
Tomorrow's game, which will be
played at Detroit's Northwestern
field will be the Wolverines' 19th
game of the year. Thus far the 'M'
squad has a poor 6-12 record, with
a two and four record in Big Ten
action.
The pitching has been the big
question on the team so far. Coach
Don Lund's pitchers have yielded
a total of 113 runs in their 18
games this season, for an average
of 6.28 runs per game.
This average has jumped tre-
mendously in the last five games
as Michigan State, Notre Dame,
Indiana, and Ohio State have clob-
bered Michigan hurlers for a total
of 59 runs.
Today Coach Lund will send
Al Koch to the hill in an attempt
to stop the deluge of runners that
have been crossing the Michigan
plate. In his first try against
Wayne Koch gave up two runs
and four hits in the three innings
he worked.
