Winning tradition holds for 'M' fall clubs.

Michigan rarely fields losing teams,
and the club sports program is no ex-
ception. For instance, the men's water
polo club has splashed its way to an un-
defeated slate and is favored to capture
the Midwestern Water Polo Champion-
ships this weekend in Lansing. The
lacrosse club handily defeated
Michigan State 14-10 last Sunday in its
big game. In addition, the rugby club
owns an excellent 6-1 record to round
out this week's featured club sports.
"We've hardly won games before and
this year we're winning games," said
Captain Andrew Katzenstein.
The tankers have done just that as
they've piled up two wins over
Michigan State, 9-8 and 14-6, and
Western Michigan, 16-14. They carry

this unblemished record into Lansing
this weekend.
"We're really looking forward to it;
we are favored to win (the tour-
nament)," Katzenstein said. The other
participants are Michigan State,
Western Michigan, Lansing Com-
munity College, Wayne State, Bowling
Green and Ann Arbor Huron, the
Michigan high school state champion,
who Katzenstein feels is "the only team
that can beat us."
Leading the way for the Blue tankers
are top goal scorers Jeff Barnett and
player-coach Paul Fairman. The
tankers have received fine goaltending

With an impressive 14-10 triumph
over Michigan State, the lacrosse club,
coached by Bob DiGiovanni, has com-
pleted its brief fall schedule. They
finished at 1-1 as they had earlier drop-
ped an 8-7 decision to the Chicago
Lacrosse Club. The stickmen play most
of their games in the spring.
In the MSU encounter, junior Bobby
Fleischman paced the Wolverines with
two goals and six assists. Tom Simon
chipped in a hat trick and two assists,
Fred Hartman tallied a hat trick and
captain Daryl Balchan added two more
goals to the Blue output. In the game
with Chicago, Ed Anderson netted three
goals. (
Captain Blachan was pleased with
the year's outcome, "We had a good

turnout. We had a lot of new players

This past weekend in East Lansing the Michigan women's tennis team
finished second in a quadrangular meet.
Winners for Michigan were Barb Fischley by default at fourth singles
and Whit Stodghill at fifth singles, with scores of 6-0, 6-2.
"Considering we had no competition (until the meet), the teAm's per-
formance was excellent," said Michigan coach Theo Shepherd.
Michigan dropped both doubles matches in the finals, each to Indiana. In
first doubles action, Kathy Krickstein and Stodghill lost 6-4, 6-3, 6-3, while the
third doubles team of Fischley and Lisa Wood were downed 6-4, 6-3.
Indiana took the team title, capturing four of the nine flights, .
Michigan's three, Michigan State's two, and Purdue's zero.
