Michigan's c r o w n, however,
didn't come without a few court
scars. Number one in particular,
Northwestern's wonderboy Marty
Riessen dethroned Ray Senkow-
ski from the tbp singles cham-
pionship in convincing 6-1, 6-4
Senkowski, who took the title
as a sophomore a year ago, never
got a start against Riessen, who
ranks 17th in national singles.
The Wildcat sophomore jumped
out in front to a 3-0 first set lead'
and with some great recovery
shots took the first stanza 6-1.
Senkowski, suffering from in-
consistency on the "big" serves
and having trouble with Riessen's
shots to the net, followed by drop-
ping the first three games of the
second set. Then the Wolverine
head racketman rallied to 4-5, but
Riessen knocked any comeback
hopes with a love game to clinch
Northwestern copped the first
doubles too, Riessen teaming up
with Bob Ericson to nip Senkowski
and Harry Fauquier in a cliff
hanger 4-6, 15-13, 11-9. Victories
in every set came on service breaks
in what turned out to be the first
loss for the Michigan doubles
team this year.
Earlier in the afternoon, Fau-
quier had tripped up Illinois'
Frank Noble, 6-0, 8-6, to cop the
number two singles championship
in his first season of competition.
Fauquier breezed through the first
set on a powerful backhand, found
rough going in the second, but
pulled it out with some determin-
ed smash action.
As forecasted, Gerry Dubie over-
whelmed Michigan State's Tom
Jamieson, 6-1, 6-2, to climax a
defeatless season and mark up a
number three Big Ten medal. Du-
bie had defeated Jamieson earlier
this year 6-1, 6-0.
Captain Jim Tenney-in a bit
of revenge-rolled past North-
western's Chuck Lockhart for the
number four singles Championship
6-4, 6-2. It was Lockhart who
knocked Tenney out of the Big
Ten tourney two years ago in
fourth singles play.
Carver Blanchard of Northwest-
ern, who defeated Michigan's Tom
Beach earlier in the meet, took the
fifth singles crown. He defeated
Indiana's Jim Binkley, 6-4, 6-2.
Wolverine sixth man, Ron Lin-
clau played his best tennis of the
season here at the conference
meet, but the Michigan soph lost
out yesterday to Wildcat Ken
Paulson in the final match, 9-7,
It was Dubie and Tenney, who
clinched the meet for the Michi-
gan netmen, with a rousing 6-1, 6-
3, victory over MSU's Dick Colby'
and Tom Wierman in the number'
two doubles finals.
Beach and Linclau rounded out
the Michigan win bracket, trip-
ping Northwestern's number three
doubles team, Jim Kohl and Lock-
hart, 6-4, 6-1.
Consistent serving kept the
Wildcats off balance-and the de-
ciding match point was typical.
Linclau missed a Northwestern
smash and was all set to prepare
himself for the next serve when
teammate Beach made a desper-
ate last-second retrieve of the hall.
gan State, Purdue and Iowa were
helping to hold the favored Badg-
ers down to 41.
And it was the old guard that
won it for Michigan - Denhart
clearing 15'/4" to win the vault;
Bennie McRae re-establishing
himself as the best hurdler in the
conference with victories of :14.2
in the 120-yd. highs and :23.6 in
the 220-yd. lows; Charlie Aquino
coming through with a record-tie-
ing 1:19.2 to win the 660-yd. run;
and, naturally, Captain Ergas Leps
running one of the most memor-
able triples in conference history,
winning the mile in 4:10.8, plac-
ing second in the 880-yd. run in
1:52.8 and bringing the mile re-
lay team back into contention
with a :48.5 quarter-mile on the

whole team, but McRae and Leps
were the two he couldn't stop talk-

Indiana Takes Golf Crown
After wrenching his leg in Fri-
day's low hurdle preliminaries,
McRae flew away from the field
in the highs yesterday, beating
Michigan State's Herman Johnson
by a smashing four yds. and leav-
ing Wisconsin's Larry Howard, the
double hurdle winner indoors,
straining back in third place.
Then in the lows, the race which
put him out of the Big Ten meet
two years ago with a crippling
back injury, McRae boomed out
around the turn in the lead and
held off Ohio State's Paul War-
field by a half-yd.
For Leps, there was disappoint-
ment along with the victory. The
crew-cut senior, who was trying
for his eighth and ninth Big Ten
titles, got the mile title in im-
pressive fashion, taking the lead
going into the final turn, giving
it up again to Iowa's Jim Tuck-
er on the turn and then matching
kicks with the wildly sprinting
Hawkeye thundering down the
Then about 30 yds. from the
tape, Tucker broke under the
strain and it was Leps winning
easily by five full yds.
Running only 30 minutes later
in the 880, Leps had to be satis-
fied with a second behind long-
striding Bill Frazier, an Iowa
sophomore who had qualified first
on Friday in a fast 1:51.9.
Leps hung five yds. back of
Frazier on the backstretch, but
when he fell 15 yds. back on the
last turn and saw teammate Dave
Hayes coming in several yds. be-
hind him, he coasted in second
some 20 yds. back of Frazier, who
tied the Big Ten record of 1:50.1.
Leps was disappointed after-
ward, but Canham pointed out, "I
think the fact that he knew we
might need him on the mile relay
deterred him from really tearing
out after that guy"
Leps Saves Relay
And it was Leps who saved the
relay. After Carter Reese, who led
off in a strong :48.7, and Talt
Malone started Leps off in fourth
place, he passed up Purdue and
Wisconsin down the stretch to put
Aquino in second behind Iowa, the
The Wolverine Junior, who had
taken to the outside to outkick
Iowa's Roger Kerr by three yds. in
the 660, couldn't match Purdue's
Dave Mills and Wisconsin's Elzie
Higginbottom, so his strong :49.0
leg was only good for fourth.
Denhart's win in the vault cli-
maxed. a great day for the Wol-
verines in the field events. Min-
nesota's Dick Morrow stayed with
the Michigan senior up through
14'6", but it was all Denhart after
that. He became the first man to
clear 15' in a Big Ten meet when
he made the 15'%/4" with room to
spare on his third try. George
Wade tied for fifth with a vault
Michigan picked up more points
in the high jump when Steve Wil-
liams placed second at 6'7" and
sore-kneed Al Ammerman made
his best jump of the outdoor sea-
son to tie for third at 6'4". Wil-
liams made a determined bid for
the title, but couldn't match In-
diana's Connie Miller, the indoor
champ, when they got up to 6'-
Sophomore Roger Schmitt was
the one who really got the Wol-
verines off on the right foot. In
the f i r s t results announced,
Schmitt broke up a Wisconsin
slam in the shot put when he got
one off that sailed 53'9", the best
of his life, to take second behind
big Elmars Ezerins, who had beat-
en Wolverine Ernie Soudek in the
discus throw on Friday.

Pendlebury fell off his game of
Friday which netted him a 73, 69
and put him in second place for
the individual race. Yesterday, he
scored a 78, 81 but it was still good
enough to put him in a tie for
tenth place when he and Indiana's
Byron Comstock both scored 301
for the four rounds. It was the
first time in three years that
Michigan had finished in the first
division. The last time was in 1959
when the meet was held at Ann

Coach Bert Katzenmeyer was
delighted with the performance.
"I'm extremely pleased," said the
smiling Michigan coach when the
final scores were posted. When you
look at our season's record and
compare it to how we ended up
in the meet, I can't help but feel
the boys did an excellent job.
"The season was one of contin-
uous improvement," he went on.
"And I was glad to see the boys
hit their peak at the place where
Michigan came close to winning
the meet. Indiana as a team had
