lead the Wolverines past the Boil-
ermakers, 6-2.
There's not too much doubt left
about the shape of Coach Bill
Murphy's sophomore talent this
spring. John Fraser, Brian Flood,
Hal Lowe, and Bo Barker (in de-
scending order beginning at sec-
ond singles) have only lost a to-
tal of three sets in Big Ten play
this spring.
Junior Ron Linclau, 1-1 for the
year, will anchor the Michigan
lineup at sixth singles today.
Toughest to Come
The Wolverines have defeated
conference teams this spring that
finished seventh, ninth, and tenth
in the Big Ten meet a year ago,
and will taste their toughest oppo-
sition in ,the coming weeks before
this year's conference affair 'on
May 16-18.
Following the Notre Dame meet
Saturday (time: 2:00 at the var-
sity courts), the Blue travel to
Champaign for a quadrangular
meet with Illinois, Indiana, and
Ohio State on May 3-4 before fac-
ing Michigan State up at East
Lansing on May 7.
The highlight dual meet of the
season pits Michigan's defending
champs against; top challenger
Northwestern here on May 11. The
Wildcat top man Marty Riessen

defeated Senkowski for the Big
Ten number one singles cham-
pionship last spring in the confer-
ence finals.

'M1' Season,
Five members of Michigan's
NCAA and Big Ten gymnastics
champions were named to the 1963
Collegiate All-America squad se-
lected by the National Coaches As-
Four were named to the first
team with captain Gil Larose chos-
en in three events-all-around,
high bar, and long horse. Other
first team members were Mike
Henderson, floor exercise; Gary
Erwin, trampoline; and Arno Las-
cari, parallel bars.
Fred Sanders was chosen on the
second team in the trampoline
with Lascari on the high bar. Las-
cari and Larose also were named
to the third outfit in the all-
around and parallel bars, respec-

The class of the Big Ten golf
teams were at last weekend's quad-
rangluar golf meet at Columbus.
At least that is what Michigan
golf mentor Bert Katzenmeyer
The teams in the meet were
Michigan, which came in one
stroke behind the winner, Purdue,
and Indiana and Ohio State. The
first three seem to be the most
likely title winner in the Big Ten
"We have a squad that is good
enough to take the crown if it
really wants to," commented Kat-
zenmeyer. "We have no one to
blame but ourselves for the loss."
But he acknowledged that the poor
playing conditions in the meet
made the 36 holes quite an ordeal

fident. He has scheduled a 72 hole
intrasquad tournament for this
weekend to ready the squad for
their encounter with Michigan
State at East Lansing on May 4.
Wolverine Mark Yahn hit the
green of the OSU par-five, 555-yd.
12th hole in two, but proceeded to
three-putt the hole for only a
par. Katzenmeyer, who had watch-
ed it all, exclaimed "I've only
seen one other person get on in
two on that hole under these con-
ditions, and that was Jack Nick-
Michigan got a bad break early
in the match when the sixth man
on the team, sophomore Pete Pas-
sink,"suffered a sore shoulder and
had to drop out of competition
after a painful morning round,
shooting an 88. With the best five
scores counting for each team in

each round, Michigan was at
distinct disadvantage.


Ohio State, who has been in the
doldrums the past two years with
its golf team, may come up with
a better combination next year.
Tom Weiskopf, the Buckeyes'
first man last year, is out of school
this year due to poor grades, but
is expected to enroll again this
fall. Weiskopf last week set the
par 72 course record with a blister-
ing 64. And his playing partner at
the time was freshman Ed Sneed,
who toured the course in 65.
OSU's Jim Brown, who fired a 72
in his first round during the week-
end match, is only a sophomore
and will likely be around for two
more years.

gotten some breaks, many of those
losses would have ended up in the
win column.
"I think that the result of this
is that Fisher's confidence waver-
ed. This affected his control. Then
he just ran into tough luck."
An Answer
The good start that Fisher has
had this season is explainable, ac-
cording to Benedict. "Fisher has
been practicing since last Septem-
ber," said Benedict. "As a result
he has gained strength. When you
couple this strength with maturity,
confidence, and his natural abil-
ity you have a great pitcher."
Fisher's performance ; against
Central Michigan in the first game
of the doubleheader last Saturday
is a good example of what might
be expected of him for the rest of
the season.
Benedict pulled Fisher at the
end of seven innings because he
had a chest cold. In his seven
inning stint, Fisher struck out 16
opponents. This means that the
rest of the team only had to make
five put-outs.

Fisher said that the difference
in his performance this year is
mental not physical. "Physically
theres no change this season," he
said. "It's just that I'm more men-
tally prepared. I know that the
team has confidence in me and Y
have confidence in them."
He said that pitchers Dave Roe-
buck and Jim Boebel are having
the same trouble this season that
he did last season. "I feel that
Roebuck and Boebel are in the
same situation I was in last sea-
son," he said. "They had some,
tough breaks and lost some ball
games. Then they started pressing.
It's a lot easier to win when you're
on top and you have - your confi-
Fisher turned down offers from
about 10 major league teams at
the end of last season. Despite the
fact that his won-lost record was
only 6-6, the professional scouts
could see his value.
"I feel indebted to Michigan for
the education I have received
here," Fisher said. "I'm glad that
I'm getting off to a good start this
season. I started out well here at
