Win Six on Spring Tour

Michigan bats were hotter than
the Arizona weather last week as
the Wolverines finished with a 6-3
record on their spring trip to the
cactus capitol.
Victims of the onslaught which
saw Michigan bang out nine home
runs in nine games, were Wyom-
ing 4-1 and 4-2, Arizona State
three times, 19-11, 6-5, and 8-7,
and Big Ten rival Wisconsin, 15-
The only club to trim the Wol-

verines w a s, embarrassingly
enough, Phoenix Junior College,
and the underclassmen did it three
times, 5-4 in 15 innings, 3-1, and
9-6. The three losses were noth-
ing to fret about, however, be-
cause the Phoenix club was the
National Junior College Champion
last year.
Lund Pleased,
The trip provided Coach Don
Lund with his first look at the
sophomore-studded Wolverines in
action, and he was not disap-

Wolverines Off on Right Foot

He pointed out that his club
completed 11 double plays during
the nine games, and added that
he was pleasantly surprised with
the unexpected power the team
showed. Sophomore first baseman
Bill Freehan was the main con-
tributor to the home run barrage
as he banged four of 'em.
In the 15-10 slugfest against
Wisconsin, Michigan walloped
four homers, with Dick DeLamiel-
leure, Joe Merullo and Joe Bre-
feld joining Freehan as heroes.
Before meeting the Wolverines,,
Arizona State was 22-1 for the
season, having only lost to Wis-
consin the previous day. In their
first encounter Michigan numbed
the Wildcats by scoring seven runs
in the fifth inning and went on
to a wild 19-11 victory, banging
out 16 hits in the process.
Pitching Is Key
But despite the offensive antics,
Lund still thinks the key to the
season lies in the pitching. He
received several fine performances
on the trip.
Sophomore Mike Joyce turned
in two complete games when he
bested Wyoming 4-1 and Arizona
State 19-11. In the Wyoming game

the big right-hander allowed only
three hits and was in command
all the way. And although Ari-
zona State scored 11 runs only
two were earned.
Another sophomore, Fritz Fish-
er, was almost as impressive in
recording a 6-5 victory over Ari-
zona State and a 4-2 conquest of
Wyoming. Against Arizona State
Fisher almost let the game get
away from him as he walked ten
batters. He also had ten strike-
outs, however.
Fisher Impressive
Fisher allowed Wyoming only
five hits in 7% innings but walked
eight batters and had to be bailed
out by senior Dennis McGinn, who
preserved his victory with 11/3 in-
nings of hitless ball.
Lefthander Bob Marcereau was
also impressive as he allowed
Phoenix only one earned run in
10 innings in the 15 inning affair
the Wolverines eventually lost.
"If Joyce and Fisher can come
through with a fine season we
could have a pleasant year," was
all Lund would say in looking to-
ward the coming Big Ten cam-
paign. But then he added, "I
think they will."

Track, Net, Golf Squads
Return From Southland'



Spring vacation was good to the
Michigan track team. "
Competing in meets at Athens,
0., and in Port of Spain, Trinidad,
Coach Don Canham's athletes
showed that they will be hard to.
dislodge from their current posi-
tion as king of Big Ten track.
At Athens in the Ohio Univer-
sity,Relays Ray Locke won the
shot put with a heave of 53' 10%"4
and Jim Wyman captured the
mile with a meet record time of
4:21.9. The distance-medley relay
team composed of Bryan Gibson,
Walt Schafer, Dave Martin, and
Ergas Leps set a meet and field
record in winning in 10:09.4.
The four man Wolverine squad=
'in Trinidad accounted for six
firsts and two seconds. Tom Rob-
inson-took both sprints, Dick Cep-
has the high jump (6'5%") and
the 440 (0:47.5), and Bennie Mc-
Rae the high hurdles.
In addition, this trio plus Er-
gas Leps won the sprint-medley
relay. Lops also placed second in
the 1500 and 800-meter runs.
Former National Interscholastic
champion Ray Senkowski, a hard
hitting. sophomore from Ham-
tramck, Michigan, used his big
service and solid forehand to ad,-
vantage in registering two num-
ber one singles wins in matches
with Miami of Florida to highlight
the Michigan tennis team's an-
nual spring trip over the holi-
Senkowski, participating for the
first time in varsity competition
came through with convincing
wins as the Wolverines' new num-
ber one singles man.
Miami, which has played 14
regular season matches thus far,
beat Michigan 7-2 on both oc-
casions. However, the matches
were just a tuneup for Coach Bill
Murphy's squad which had never
practiced outdoors before the
Florida excursion. Miami has just
five matches to go before it fin-
ishes the regular season.
The two other Wolverine vic-
tories were by Senkowski and
Wayne Peacock in the number
one doubles in the first match
and by the third doubles combi-
nation of Bill Vogt and Bruce
MacDonald in the second.
The six. Wolverines who made
the trip were Senkowski, Jim Ten-
ny, Peacock, MacDonald, Vogt and
Tom Beach.
Coach Murphy commented, "Our

lineup is not definite yet as we
are still waiting for clear weather
to begin outdoor practice. The
play of Senkowski was very satis-
fying however, and he should per-
form well for us this season."
S. e e
Though his charges were beaten
by both Duke and North Carolina
during the vacation, Michigan's
Golf Coach Bert Katzenmeyer is
"very encouraged" about the pros-
pects for the season.
In dual meets, Duke topped the
Wolverines, 19-9, and the Tar-
heels did the job, 16-12.
- "We played very well for so
early in the year," Katzenmeyer
commented, pointing out that his
team averaged 76.7 and 77.1 re-
spectively against the southern
schools. "It was one of the finest
performances of a Michigan team
down south in recent years."
The best score of the trip was
turned in by Junior Mike Goode
who posted a 72 against Duke.
