Netmen Ready to

'Sma.

By GRETCHEN TWIETMEYER
With their first Big Ten meet
less than two weeks away, it seem-
ed like a funny time for the coach
to skip town.
But though Bill Murphy was
2000 miles away, teaching a
"Sports, for a Lifetime" tennis
clinic in Phoenix, the team was
still putting in valuable time in
the IM Building. As Captain Karl
Hedrick' put, it, "We all know we
have to work, and we should know
well enough by now what we have
to work on."
With five seniors gone from last
year's Big Ten championship team,
it might seem like Murphy would
have to settle for less this year.
"But we are actually stronger than
last year," says Hedrick. "We were
hit hard but other teams were hit
worse, and we have eight top play-
ers now compared to maybe three
or four 'for some of our competi-
tion."
Hedrick Holds Key
Key to the netmen's victories
will be Hedrick himself, who play-
ed first position last year. He was
runner-up in the National Indoors
Championship as a freshman, is
ranked seventh nationally in the
Fathers and Sons Doubles Cham-
pionship, and last year took run-
ner-up in first doubles along with
Jerry Stewart in the Big Ten meet.
In Miami two weeks ago he beat
the Hurricanes' number one man,
Mickey ,Shadd, and recently he re-
ceived the Hazel M. Losh Award.
Hedrick's strength is in his form
and strokes. His mechanics are
excellent, especially in his smash-
ing serve. Not only does he rarely
double fault, but his teammates
stand in awe of the force he gives
the ball.
Hedrick's partner in first dou-
bles last year, Jerry Stewart, has
never lost a Big Ten match, and
last dyear he won fourth singles.
The :Hedrick-Stewart duo beat
Shadd and Frank Tutvin in first
doubles at Miami in Stewart's
home state.
Stewart's teammates describe
him as explosive, a stylist, and
a good singles and doubles player.
Hedrick classified him more neat-
ly :as a good all-around player.
4im Swift, the most garrulous
of the varsity, started as second
singles man last year. He and
graduated senior Brian Flood took
third doubles at the Big Tens last
year, and Hedrick rates him as a
good doubles player.
heturns from India
Pete Dixon played tennis at
Michigan as a sophomore and was
runner-up for sixth singles in the
Big Ten meet. Then last year his
father went to India as an ex-
change professor and Pete had no
access to courts. Back'again this
'~year as a senior, he scored a good
win over David Tate in Miami,
playing fourth singles.
Tennis isn't an original idea
with Pete. His father, Robert Dix-
on, was tennis coach at Michigan
17 years ago and was succeeded
by Murphy. Pete's teammates cite
him. as a steady player, a good
scrambler, and a good outdoor
man.
Small College Champion
Ed Waits, a junior and transfer
student from Jackson, won the
Small College Championship last
year, and took third doubles along
with Ron Burns in Miami. He is
a flashy player, especially good on
the volley..
Though a senior, this is Burns'
first year of Michigan tennis. He
spent last year in Scotland as a
transfer student. Hedrick notes
that his strokes - are especially
good.
Two men on the varsity haven't
SPORTS NIGHT EDITOR:
BOB LEES

played for Michigan yet - Ron
Teeguarden and Bob Pritula. Tee-
guarden, highly rated as a fresh-
man, won the National PublicI
Parks Championship last year.I
Raised in California, ergo a good
hardcourt player, he also has a
big serve.
Pritula has already won fame
for nine National Badminton
Championships. But he doesn't
brag about it because his twin
sister is ranked ninth in girl's
18-and-under and has Won ten
National Badminton Champion-
ships. Bob has a tremendous fore-
hand and a good volley.
Probable Lineup
The lineup for the Minnesota
meet will probably be similar to
that for the Miami meet-Hedrick,
Stewart, Swift, Dixon, Waits, and
Burns-with Teeguarden and Pri-
tula filling in. But Coach Mur-
phy won't make anything definite
until after the meet.
The team has nothing but praise
for Murphy. He has won 13 Big
Ten Championships in 17 years
which is more than any other con-
ference coach. He also coached an

KARL HEDRICK

NCAA championship team. An
authority on tennis, he and his
brother have published several
books on the game. As a national
tennis figure, Bill Murphy is also
a good recruiter.

'M' GYMNASTICS HONORS:
Vander Voort Designated
As MVP, 1967 Captain

h' Foes
Murphy concentrates quite a bit
on style, and almost everyone has
had at least his backstroke
changed by him since they came
to Michigan. In the last month he
has emphasized calisthenics and
cross-court drills.
Coach Murphy also believes in
an aggressive game, and, as Jim
Swift says, "whoever goes to the
net will probably win the point,
so we practice that a lot." The
team thinks of him as not only a
good but also an enthusiastic
coach.
Since Michigan's new tennis
courts have not yet been built, the
team practices at the Ann Arbor
Rocket Club whenever possible. So
anxious is the team for the out-
door experience that they've even
braved 20 degree weather. But
they hope to practice outdoors all
next week.
Big Ten Strength
Hedrick picks Indiana and Wis-
consin as our toughest competitors
for thehBig Tens. But he also
rates the Big Ten, as a whole,
weaker than last year. The deaths
of Tim and Mike Sheehan, first
singles for Northwestern and sec-
ond singles for Indiana, respec-
tively, in a rowboat accident, will
have a great effect on their teams.
On the other hand, he thinks
Michigan is improved.
Last year Michigan was second
to Northwestern going into the Big
Ten meet but pulled ahead in the
meet to take the championship.
"We should do well in the na-
tionals, too, taking sixth or sev-
enth," added Hedrick. UCLA and
USC are top rated, with the Uni-
versity of Miami and Rice also
showing talent. "But next year
we have a chance for the NCAA
title, with one of the best fresh-
man teams in the country and the
returnees from this year."
'M' Thinclads
Place in Meets
Three Michigan trackmen were
among the top finishers in meets
held this weekend in two southern
states.
Michigan shot putter Jack Har-
vey placed second in the South
Carolina Relays with" a throw of
58 feet. At the same meet, George
Canamare pole vaulted 14'6", goodt
enough for fourth place.
The Texas Relays found the
Wolverines' Jim Olson running the
mile in a time of 4:13.0, which
earned him fifth place. He com-
peted on an unattached basis due
to his freshman status.

Gary Vander Voort, Michigan's
all-around athlete for the gym-
nastics team, was elected as most
valuable player of the past season
and as captain for next year by
his teammates yesterday.
Vander Voort will replace Ned
Duke. as captain.
"I believe that 'Gary was an
excellent choice by the team. I'm
sure he'll continue, the fine tra-
dition of the Michigan captains,"
praised Coach Newt Loken.
Loken's gymhastics team, which
won the Big Ten title for the
sixth consecutive time this year,
will be headed by a corps of re-
turning juniors next season. Mich-
igan will lose only Rich Blanton,
John Cashman and Duke through
graduation this spring.
Vander Voort will be back as
the backbone of the team. The
muscular junior was the top
point getter for the Wolverines in
every meet this season. In overall

dual meet competition he was
second on the team on the parallel
bars, second on the high bar, third
on the rings and first all-around.
He also helped the Wolverines
gain a berth in the NCAA finals
with his performances in the Mid-
east regionals. His routines there
gained him qualifying' scores on
the parallel bars and high bar, on
around competition which includes
the rings anJ again in the all-
around competition which includes
all events except for the trampo-
line.
In the NCAA's last weekend
VanderhVoort failed individually
to place in the finals, but he
again was instrumental in pushing
Michigan into the number five
spot in the nation as a team.
Wayne Miller, the sophomore
sensation, was the only NCAA
champion from Michigan with his
9.45 score on the trampoline. Miller
will team up with another Wol-
verine gymnast, freshman Dave
Jacobs, to represent the United
States on the tramp in an inter-
national gymnastics meet at
Lafayette, La., later this month.
