Wolverine Nine Picked forNCAA District P1

Layoffs

Freehan, Joyce Named District All-Stars;
Wolverines Travel To Western Michigan

ANOTHER TENNIS TITLE:
Depth Key Factor in cM' Win

By PETE DiLORENZI
Local fans will be treated to an
exhibition of the finest collegiate
baseball in this section of the
country next Monday when the
NCAA District Four playoffs begin
right here at Ferry Field.
It should be a great three days
of baseball.
Four teams will compete in the
three-day double elimination tour-
ney for the right to go to Omaha,
Neb. and the College World Series.
Big Ten Champion Michigan, Mis-
souri Valley Conference Champion
Cincinnati, Mid-American Confer-
ence Champion Western Michigan,
and Wolverine nemesis Detroit will
battle it out for the District Four
crown.
Two Monday Games
The tourney will consist of two
Monday games, with the first pit-
ting Detroit against Western Mich-
igan, while host Michigan and
Cincinnati fight it out in the sec-
ond. On Tuesday, the winners
and losers will face each other.
Wednesday's games will be deter-
mined by the results of the other
two days.
Cincinnati, the Wolverines' first
foe, has compiled an 18-2-2 record
throughout the season, compared
to Michigan's 20-7.,
Detroit and Western Michigan
posted season records of 15-1=1
and "14-6, respectively.
The playoff series was originally
intended to have been played at
Tiger Stadium, but, in an fortu-
nate switch for local fans, it was
transferred to Ferry Field.
Freehan, Joyce All-Stars
The District Four committee also
announced the District All-Star
team yesterday, with Wolverines
Bill Freehan and Mike Joyce being
named to the ten-man squad.

The selections came as no sur-
prise to anyone, most of all to
those who have followed the Wol-
verines closely. Both Freehan and
Joyce have shown by their season-
long performance that they were
of all-star caliber.
The team consisted of the fol-
lowing players:
First base-Wayne Knapp, Min-
nesota (.355); second base - Ed
LaDuke, Indiana (.361); shortstop
-Frank Quilici, Western Michigan
(.359); third base-Frank Corej,
Detroit (.367); outfielders - Joe
Nossek, Ohio University (.413) ,
Tom Riley, Michigan State (.358),
and Bill Hess, Ohio State (.354);
catcher - Freehan, Michigan
(.439); pitchers-Joyce, Michigan
(8-1), and Bill Ortleib, Western
Michigan (8-0).
At Western Michigan
Today the Wolverines travel to
Kalamazoo to face Western Mich-
igan in a tuneup and possible pre-
view of next week's playoff series.
Coach Don Lund has named junior
righthander Franz Neubrecht to
start against the Broncos, who
were ahead of the Wolverines 4-1

in a May 13 game which was called
in the fourth inningbecause of
rain. In that game, the Broncos
threw Bill Ortlieb at the Wolver-
ines. Ortlieb is the other pitcher
on the All-Star team along with
Joyce.
Today, however, Western Mich-
igan will start righthander Ray.
Larned against the Big Ten
champs.
The game will be the Wolverines'
last regular season contest before
the playoff series.
Save Top Pitchers
By pitching Neubrecht today,
Lund will save his three top start-
ers for the playoffs .Joyce, Bob
Marcereau, and Fritz Fisher, whose
brilliant Satur day's one - hitter
clinched Michigan's playoff berth,
will all be available for action
against the Titans, Broncos, and
Bearcats next week.
Along with these pitcher the
Wolverines will also hope to have
power-hitting first baseman Barry
Marshall back in the lineup. Mar-
shall has been out since the North-
western game with a leg injury.

By FRED STEINHARDT
Michigan had the depth when it
counted this past weekend as it
won its sixth Big Ten tennis title,
in the last seven years at East
Lansing.
Bill Vogt, Wayne Peacock, and
Scott Maentz all came through
with individual titles to back up
first singles champ sophomore Ray;
Senkowski.
In addition, Vogt and Bruce
MacDonald won the number three
doubles titles and Senkowski and
Peacock brought home the first
doubles crown.
Losers Performed Well
Michigan's other two singles
players also played very well. Jim1
Tenney lost to the eventual win-
ner, Dick Hall of MSU in a spine
tingling semifinal match at num-
ber two. MacDonald advanced all
the way to the finals before bowing
to the Spartan's Jack Damson.
Senkowski was easily the out-
standing performer of the tourna-
ment. His final singles match
against Don Thorne of Indiana
took only 35 minutes as he admin-
istered a quick and painful tennis
lesson to Thorne.
Three out of six regulars from
this championship team depart-
Vogt, MacDonald, and Peacock.
COLLEGE MEN.
EARN $2000
THIS SUMMER!
Largest company of its kind has
several interesting job opportuni-
ties for personable college men in
following areas:

V( - *

FSenkowski, Maentz, and Tenney
will all be back next year along
with Tom Beach who played much
of the year as sixth man.
Help Coming
Coach Bill Murphy should also
get help next year from veteran
Gerry Duble and freshman Henry
Fauquier. Dubie, who was ineligi-
ble this year, won the number two
singles title in 1959, the year the
Wolverines won every possible
match in the conference tourna-
ment. Last year he played first
singles and lost to the champions,
Denny Konocki of Northwestern.
Dubie teamed with Senkowski to
win the National Scholastic dou-
bles title when both were students

at Hamtramck (Mich) High
School.
Fauquier is a Canadian whiz who
has pleased Murphy in freshman
drills this spring. Murphy rates
him as roughly equivalent to
Dubie.
Thus coach Murphy will be
pointing toward a fourth con-
secutive Big Ten title and seventh
in eight years a year from now.
With a remarkable 124-21 dual
meet record since 1948 behind him
and a flock of talent on hand the
Wolverines hope to repeat as
champs in 1962. Once again,
Northwestern and cross-state rival
Michigan State should provide the
toughest competition for Michigan.

ALL-STARS--Wolverines Freehan and Mike Joyce were named
to the District Four NCAA All-Star team. Joyce ended the
season with an 8-1 season record, and Freehan batted .439. In
Big Ten action, Freehan batted .585, and Joyce pitched his way
to a 5-1 season record. The Wolverines' sophomore batterymates
were named to the team along with eight other District players.

STILL WIN OUTDOOR TITLE:
Thinclads Compile ',Only' 55 1/5 Points

By DAVE GOOD

M' Go lfers
Fail Wh
By JIM BERGER
What happened to the Michi-
gan Golf team at Bloomington?
What was the reason why a
team which had won all its dual
meets, and had averaged 76.4,
would completely collapse and
average (for six men) 78.9?
Why did Captain Joe Brisson,
fifth in the conference last year,
play such consistently poor golf
(80-80-79-78)?
Why couldn't Tom Ahern play
Indiana's tight back nine?
Why did Mike Goode, who never
shot over 79 all year long, shoot
an 81 on Friday and an 80 on
Saturday?
Golf Coach Bert Katzenmleyer
has some of the answers, but by
no means all of them.
"First of all," said the Michigan
mentor, "three of the players were
introduced to something that they
had never seen before.
"The Big Ten Meet is the most
gruelling of any tournament in
this country and you can talk to
the boys 'till your blue in the face,
and they will never understand
until they see it themselves.
"Another reason is they tried
too hard. In golf, it seems the
harder you try, the worse things
get, and that's what happened at
Bloomington.
"Another reason is that some of
the boys just got so disgusted with
themselves and said the hell with
it all, and with that kind of at-
titude you can't possibly play good
golf."
The enigma will probably never
be completely solved, but Katzen-
meyer's subtly answers. all the
questions.

About the only thing missing
from Michigan's romp to its first
Big Ten outdoor track title since
1956 last weekend was a real shot
at Illinois 1924 record of 74 points.
The Wolverines' total of 55 1/5
points was a big drop from their
winning indoor total of 69, but
Coach Don Canham got an even
bigger kick out of last weekend's
meet than the indoor one.,
"I guess you could say that,"
agreed Canham, "because we had
won the indoor title twice before
but missed it outdoors.
"The boys, who have done so

much for us the last couple of
years came through in real good
shape. Everybody was just as
sharp as could be. It was real
satisfying."
Canham doesn't care much about
record point totals, anyway. If he
had used Dick Cephas and Tom
Robinson, who both wanted to
run on the mile relay, Michigan
could probably have improved on
its fifth place finish in that event.
Canham knew the Wolverines
wouldn't have a good chance at
the record right from the start,
because Les Bird was having re-
curring leg trouble to keep him
from placing in the broad jump,
Bennie McRae hasn't run the 220-
yd. low hurdles around the turn

since he hurt his back in last
year's conference preliminaries and
Michigan hasn't got any top-
caliber discus throwers.
Workmanlike Job
But Michigan's big guns all did
a workmanlike job. Robinson, who
said Friday he thought the Iowa
track was fast enough for record
times, woh the 100 in :09.5 and
the 220 around a turn in :21.2,
both just one-tenth off Jesse
Owens' Big Ten records.
Ergas Leps was healthy again
after recovering from a cold which
kept him from working out last
week preliminary to the Western
Michigan dual meet, where he
managed only a second and fourth.
Leps wasn't extended in winning

HuberWins
In I-M5-3
Huber gained the 'A' residence
hall softball finals yesterday by
edging high-powered Gomberg,
5-3.
Down 2-1 going into the bot-
tom of the third inning, Huber
took advantage of a leaky Gom-
berg defense to tally four times
and jump ahead, 5-2.
Pitcher Tom DeWard helped his
own cause by knocking in a run
and scoring one himself during the
uprising.
Gomberg scored its third run in
a short-lived fourth inning rally.
Both DeWard and Gomberg
twirler Danny Alix showed good
control and allowed few hits.
In the only other I-M games
scheduled yesterday, Taylor 'B'
erupted for a 19-run third inning
to swamp Allen-Rumsey 'B,' 28-
5, while Chicago 'B' forfeited to
Michigan 'B.'

Major League Standings

l

the 880 in 1:54.7 and the mile in
4:11.1, which are not great times
for an outstanding middle-distance
man.
"He can't run his own race be-
cause he's always got to come
back and run the half mile,"
pointed out Canham. "He'll run
faster times for us in the national
championships coming up (June
16-17) ."
Among Nation's Best
Bennie McRae and Cephas both
proved they belong among the best
collegiate hurdlers in the country,
as McRae won the 120-yd. highs
in a wind-aided :13.7 and Cephas
the 220-yd. lows in the Big Ten
record time of :23.4 around a turn.
Dave Martin had tough luck in
the 880 and mile, finishing third
in both races despite a finishing
kick which rivaled Leps'.
Because of all these standout
performances, Canham will still
go along with the label he pinned
on the team after the indoor meet,
as "the best the conference ever
had, as far as point or outstand-
ing athletes go."
