Third Round Blues
Down Golf Title Bid



Sports Editor
Leading by two strokes after
the first day of play Michigan
linksters fell 35 strokes off their
first round scores and placed third
at the Big Ten golf champion-
ships, 741-776-1517.
Consistent Purdue with a first
day score of 743 and a second
day score 744 for a total of 1487
claimed the championship by 18
strokes over second place Indiana,
1505, in the meet held last May
22nd and 23rd on the University
of Minnesota's home course.
Newton Misses
Michigan also watched a chance
for individual honors go down the
drain when Bill Newton who had
carded a tremendous one-under
par-70 matched with a two-under-
par 69 the first day for a six
stroke lead over the field stumbled
badly in his second day of play.
Newton fired rounds of 79 and 78
and finished in a tie for third
with Terry Winter of Purdue at
Medalist honors went to In-
diana's Byron Comstock who card-
ed a 290 for his four rounds of
294 on his home course.

Each team was allowed to enter
six men with the best five scores
counting towards the final stand-
Following sophomore Newton's
294 was junior Pete Passink's 298
on rounds of 72, 75, 73, and 78
for a sixth place finish in the
individual standings. Junior Frosty
Evashevski shot 77-72-77-77-303,
Captain Gary Mouw hit rounds

Fate, like the tennis ball, some-
times takes funny bounces.
Northwestern, the team that
without a doubt was supposed to
reign supreme at the Champaign,
Ill. courts in last May's conference
tennis tourney, never got its ten-
nis machine off the ground and
struggled to a third-place finish.
Michigan roared through the
the opening day's action without a
single taste of defeat to lead the
pack at the onset, then ran into a
brick wall of defeat in the final
day. Indiana then picked up the
tempo where the Wolverines left
off and crowned three singles
champions and two doubles to
clinch the Big Ten crown.
The Hoosiers finished with a
booming 69 points, far out-
distancing the once-menacing
Wolverines, who had 48. North-
western came up with a 42-point
effort and Michigan State ended
up in fourth 25 points.
Flood Alone
While the Wolverines had four
singlists and a doubles team in
the final action, only third man
Brian Flood managed to capture
an individual trophy. Meanwhile
Northwestern's Marty Ri e ssen
made some Big Ten history by
winning his third straight singles
and doubles championship.
Riessen took the number one
singles crown by defeating In-
diana's Dave Power, 6-1, 7-5 and
then teamed with second man
Clark Graebner to cop the first
doubles from Power and Rod Mc-
Nerney, 6-4, 6-2.
Michigan's first singles hope
senior Harry Fauquier was knock-
ed off by Riessen in the semifinals,
6-3, 6-0. The Wolverine headman
made the semi bracket after
downing Indiana's Dave Straus,
6-4, 6-1, and then going three sets
with MSU's Tom Jamieson, 0-6,
6-2, 6-1.
Graebner, Too
Graebner won the second singles
for Northwestern by outsing Wol-
verine sophomore Karl Hedrick in
the finals, 6-3, 6-3. Hedrick pair-
ed up with John Fraser in the
Wolverines' first doubles duo, and
it was only after a tough 7-5, 8-6
semi final duel with Indiana's
Power-McNerney team that the
Wolverines were knocked out of
the running. During the regular
season play the Hoosiers also beat
Fraser and Hedrick-that time 8-6,
Flood swept to the third singles
title after a stunning 6-3, 6-3 up-
set of Northwestern's top-seeded
Bill Rice in the second round of
the opening day. It was the same
Wildcat who beat Flood out of
the fourth singles crown back in
The new Wolverine champ had
to go three with Indiana's Charlie
Kane in the finals to win it, 6-4,
6-8, 6-2. On the road to the win-
ners' circle, Flood downed OSU's
John Thomas 6-3, 6-1, and Dwight
Shelton of Michigan State, 6-3,

Jim Binkley and Charles Fichter,

Hal Lowe, Coach Bill Murphy's
fourth man, beat Illinois' Tom
McCullum in the opening round,
4-6, 6-0, 6-3, then fell to Hoosier
Alan Graham, 10-8, 6-2.
Perhaps the biggest single blow
to the Wolverines' tennis title
hopes was Lowe and Fauquier's
loss of their second doubles crown
to MSU's O'Donnell-Shelton pair
in the semi-finals, 7-5, 6-2. In
the 1963 tourney, the Lowe-
Fauquier second doubles win was
the only team individual medal.
Soph Pair
A pair of Michigan sophomores
in the fifth and sixth singles slots
made it all the way to the finals,
but both Bill Dixon and Jim
Swift fell in the final action.
Dixon beat Tom Benson of Iowa
in the opening round, 6-2, 6-2, and
followed with a 6-3, 7-5 decision
over Wally Eisman of Wisconsin
in the semi's. On the final day
the Wolverine newcomer was'
bounced by Binkley in three, 6-3,
3-6, 6-2.

Swift was defeated by Fichter
in the finals, 5-7, 6-2, 6-1. He beat
MSU's Dave Click, 8-6, 6-3 and
Jerry Krause of Minnesota, 6-2,
10-8, in the earlier rounds.
The strong second-place finish
for the Wolverines capped off a
season that saw the netmen pile
up an 8-2 record following the
Southern tour. The late spring
weather forced Murphy's crew to
the indoors and confined practice
there until the season competition
was under way. Beaten twice by
powerful Miami and then smash-
ing Princeton, 7-2, the Wolverines
returned to the home habitat and
promptly whipped Wisconsin, 7-2.
Only Two
The only two season losses came
at the hands of Northwestern and
Indiana as the Wolverines gained
victories in six other meets by
9-0 scores.
With most of its personnel back
from its championship team of a
year ago, everyone had North-
western pegged for the top team
in the conference, and the race
was on for second place. Michi-
gan, Michigan State, and Indiana
all had eyes on the spot.



Sports Editor
With three second places and a
third place in the spring sports
competition Michigan rapped up
its fourth consecutive Big Ten
all-sports crown.
The seconds in track, tennis
and baseball and the third in
golf gave Michigan 35 points based
on a system of ten points for a
first, nine points for a second,
etc. The Wolverine teams ended
up with 98% points. Runnerup
was Michigan State with 88/2
Using the more refined quality
points system which divides the
total number of points each school
earns by the number of sports they
compete in gives Michigan an even
more impressive looking margin.
Michigan had 8.95 quality points
to second place Michigan State's
Last year Michigan's margin of
victory for the all-sports cham-
(Fall, Winter, S
SCHOOL to to x 00

pionship was only 7.54 to second
place Wisconsin's 6.88.
Besides the spring sports Michi-
gan got its other points for first
place finishes in gymnastics,
hockey, indoor track and wrest-
ling, a tie for first in basketball,
a second place finish in swimming
and a fifth place finish in football.
Michigan competed in eleven of
the thirteen recognized Big Ten
sports the only two they did not
compete in were fencing and cross
country. The only school which
competed in all thirteen sports
was Michigan State.
The Spartans were the last
team to take away the mythical
trophy from Michigan turning the
trick back in 1959-60.
The order of finish in the Big
Ten, going by the quality points
system, was Michigan and Michi-
gan State followed in order by
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana,
Ohio State, Illinois, Purdue, North-
western and finally Iowa.
