orthwestern Principal Nemesis

for '1' Netmc


Senliowski was Big Ten singles
champion as a sophomore but lost
the title to Riessen the next year.
Last spring the Wildcat star trip-
ped up Senkowski during the dual-
meet match, 6-2, 6-4, and had to
win in three to beat the Wolver-
ine in the finals of the conference
tournament, 2-6, 6-4, 6-1.
Fraser picked up a 5-2 record
while playing in the number-two
slot before Fauquier's return, when
he dropped down to third. At the
Big Ten meet the Wolverine soph
dropped his first-round match to
the eventual third singles titlist
Ken Paulson of Northwestern and
then was forced to a hospital bed
with a high fever.

Fauquier lost the second singles
crown he won as a sophomore to
Northwestern ace Clark Graebner
last spring, but not until the
speedy Michigan captain had giv-
en him a three-set battle. Fauquier
teamed up with Hal Lowe to bring
home Michigan's only first-place
medal in the Big Ten meet with a
win in the second doubles finals.
Lowe, another of Murphy's soph-
omore stock last spring, was nip-
ped in a 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 semi-final
match in fifth singles by Michi-
gan State's Dwight Shelton. Dur-
ing the season Lowe, tagged "The
Visor" for the sun-protection
equipment he wears, lost only one
match after the return from the

Southern trip, that to Northwest-
ern's Skip Gage, 6-3, 7-9, 6-4.
Sophomore lefty Brian Flood
carried an undefeated conference
mark with him all the way to the
Big Ten finals where he was down-
ed by Bill Rice of Northwestern,
6-1, 7-5. Flood was the only Wol-
verine to win in singles when
Michigan met Northwestern in
their dual meet, but that time
around he defeated Tig Templeton,
6-4, 6-0.
The fourth Michigan sophomore,
Bo Barker, played fifth singles un-
til Fauquier rejoined the team,
when he and Ron Linclau alter-
nated at the sixth spot. Barker
won three straight after returning
from the Southern tour and end-

ed up with a 5-2 record at the fifth
Linclau compiled a so-so 4-3
mark during the regular season,
but, true to form, really started
banging away the points once he
got to the conference meet. He up-
set second-seeded Charlie Wolff of
Michigan State in the quarter fin-
als, 6-1, 6-8, 6-3, and then smash-
ed by Illinois' Don Hedden, 6-0,
6-2, to gain a berth in the finals.
And in the final match with
Northwestern's Gage it all began
the same way. Linclau racked up a
6-1 first-set win and broke out in
front 3-1 in the second. But a
painful back-full of pulled muscles
took affect as Linclau lost the
next six straight to drop the set,

6-3, and then fell in the third,
6-3. It was the second year in a
row that the tall blond finished
runnerup on the sixth court.
This spring Murphy will have.
all the above returning with the
one big exception of Senkowski.
The Wolverines will be well-stock-
ed as far as depth goes, and the
addition of sophomores Bill Dixon,
Jim Swift and Carl Hedrick will
bolster the veteran nucleus. Fau-
quier and Linclau will be the only
