Muskegon Heights Favored To Dominate
Events in State Class A Track Meet Here
By TOM ROWLAND
Northwestern's tennis coach
Claire Riessen has quite a repu-
tation for his flagrant attitude.
The Wildcat head mentor boldly
predicted this season that his
number one, four, five and six
singles would win Big Ten indi-
vidual championships last 'week at
Minneapolis. And he was right-
He hadn't counted on a scrappy,
crew-cut Wolverine racketman to
throw a cog into the NW scheme
with ,a go-go 6-4, 6-2 win over
Wildcat Chuck Lockhart. Jim
"Tennis Ball" Tenney, Wildcat
killer and M'-squad captain, not
only grabbed Coach Riessen's
fourth singles dream but also put
the final polish on the Michigan
team trophy, joining with Gerry
Dubie to stomp Michigan State's
Dick Colby-Tom Wierman in the
second doubles finals, 6-1, 6-3.
When Tenney walked off the
court after downing Lockhart the
Wolverine captain had just capped
off a mar-less spring in the win
column. But there was something
"It's something I really wanted
to do, commented Tenney. And
he had reason. For it was exactly
two years ago that the identical
Lockhart netter had tripped up
Tenney in the fourth place final
match at Champaign.
Tenney notes, however, that the
Lockhart match wasn't his tough-
est of the tournament this spring.
"Actually, my toughest match
was with Iowa's Mike Schrier. He
had the big serve and came to
the net with a good volley." Ten-
ney tripped Schrier in the semi-
finals, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.
Tenney was more than a net
enthusiast at Ottawa Hills High in
Toledo.- A champion chess con-
noisseur, Tenney was a lineman
on Ottawa Hill's four-year-straight
undefeated football team.
On the courts the Michigan star
took the Ohio State 12-and-under
championship and then in high
school won the state doubles title
as a sophomore. Two years later
he took the singles crown.
Tenney came to Michigan to
take advantage of its "great en-
gineering school." He's majoring in
engineering mechanics and plans
to make it his life work.
He admits, though, that tennis
was in his mind when he enrolled.
"I could've gone to another school
and had it easier in making the
top divisions," says the Wolverine
captain, "but I wanted to come
here where I could get some real
"It's really been great playing
with our team. They make you
work and give you a great game.
One can't help improving."
As for his undefeated season in

The formula for victory in the

track meet is usually based on a

dashes and high finishes in the
two relays, which count double
the individual events.
This year the meet will be held
at Ferry Field on Saturday and
the traditional formula appears
ready to work again. Muskegon
Heights is the team to beat. Many
of the other regional winners -
Flint Northern, Grosse Pointe,
Pontiac Central, Lansing Sexton,
Saginaw, Detroit Mumford, Ink-
ster, Thurston, and Hazel Park-
have the potential ability to up-
set the Heights. The ten regional
meets were held last weekend and
the top three in each event at
each regional qualified for the
Records Should Fall
The meet shapes up as one of
the best state-wide competitions
in years. Nine of the thirteen state
records are in danger of being
broken. This is the first state meet
in 31 years that Detroit public
schools have been allowed to com-
pete in. Addition of the Detroit
trackmen will stiffen the already
Because of the tough competi-
tion and the low scores of the best
teams, one thinclad can earn
enough points by himself to put
his team near the top. Ferndale's
Dorrie Reid, defending champion
in both sprints, led his team to a
place in the top ten at the 1961
state meet and almost single-
handedly put his team in third
place in last Saturday's regionals.
Reid, who plans to attend the
University next fall, won the 100
in :09.6 and won the 220 after
recording a time of :21.4 in the
preliminaries. The 100 time is .2
of a second under the state record
and the 220 time is .3 of a second
under the state record. He also
took first place in the broad jump
with a leap of 22'32", one of the
best jumps in the state this sea-
son. Finally, he anchored the win-
ning 880-yd. relay to a blazing
1:30.4 clocking, .4 of a second over
the state record.
The Heights also has a fine
sprinted in Joe Parham. He has
been credited with a wind-assist-
ed :09.6 in the 100 and took the re-
gional championship with a :09.8
time. His regional winning 220
time was :22.1 around a curve.
Other outstanding sprinters who
have a good enough team in back
of them to challenge the Heights
are Dalton Kimble of Flint North-
ern, Steve Schreifer of Grosse
Pointe, and Dick Allen of Lansing
Northern has a tradition of do-
ing well at the state meet, winning
it in 1961 and finishing second the
seven previous years. Besides Kim-
ble, Northern has defending high
jump champion Al Washington
and two fast relay teams.

in the Big Ten second singles
championship this spring, has b'een
named captain of next year's Wol-
Fauquier went undefeated dur-
ing this season's action, climaxing
the spring with a victory over Il-

second singles crown, 6-0, 8-6.

nd in Sports
Grosse Pointe won its fifth
straight regional last Saturday and
is pointing towards its best show-
ing over at the state meet. Re-
gional winners Tom Raven in the
440-yd. dash (:50.4) and Tom
Spiewak in the shot put (53'21%")
are chief Blue Devil hopefuls. Two
regional-winning relays account
for the balance of the Pointe po-
Sexton has miler Gordon Dewey
and low hurdler Bill Snell who has
recorded the second fastest time
in the state so far in addition to
sprinter Allen. The weakness of
the Lansing school is in the re-
lays, where it could only manage
a second in the mile relay at the
Five in Seven
Five times state champion in the
last seven years, Pontiac Central
cannot be counted out of the run-
ning despite the lack of a top
sprinter. The Chiefs have strength
in the individual events but their
relays may be slightly too slow
to place in the top six. Willie Mc-
Daniel in the hurdle events, Wil-
bert Preston in the mile, and Elick
Shorter in the shot put are indi-
vidual Pontiac stars.
Detroit Mumford's mile relay
team has done 3:24.8, about a
second under the state record.
Mumford's Theodis McBurrows
has also gone slightly more than
a second under the state record of
1:57.2 for the 880-yd. run. De-
troit Redford's Dick Sharkey won
the regional mile in 4:20.4, 1.4 sec-
onds under the state record. Wy-
andotte hurdler Jerry Cerulla has
tied the state high hurdles record
of :14.4 and has come within .5
seconds of the :19.0 state record
for the low hurdles.

like losing," says Tenney. "That's
what makes our whole team spe-

of us if we lose."
The Michigan number-four man

sports, but "I really enjoy tennis.
It's' a life-long sport and takes
a lot of exercise.
"In college tennis everybody has
