Blue net coach
By SCOTT M. LEWIS 414it1h w thRic B Tan b.....r t


Okay, Michigan sports fans, it's time
to play, "Name That Coach!" Here's
your first clue:
This varsity coach has racked up an
.825 winning percentage during his
tenure at Michigan.
Not sure, you say? This hint may
help-this coach has seen his teams
capture nine consecutive Big Ten titles,
but never has won the national cham-
For all of you who answered "Bo
Schembechler," we have consolation
prizes awaiting you backstage. The
correct answer is-Brian Eisner.
Eisner, coach of the men's tennis
team since 1970, has maintained
Michigan's tradition of dominating the
Big Ten courts. The Wolverine dynasty
has produced 11 straight conference
crowns, and 20 of the last 24. Eisner and
his players feel that the 1979 season,
which begins next weekend in Wichita,
Kan., will be just as successful.
They have good reason to be op-
timistic. Six of Michigan's top eight
players are returning from last season,
including senior Jeff Etterbeek, the Big
Ten number one singles champion and
a member of the Big Ten championship
first doubles team.
Etterbeek's doubles partner, Matt
Horwitch, who was sidelined for part of
last season with a broken foot, gives
Michigan a strong one-two singles
lineup. Last spring as a freshman,

Horwi won ine tg - 1-en num erL wo
singles championship and has im-
proved his game since then.
One newcomeris expected to pay big
dividends. Michael Leach, a freshman
from Weston, Mass., played on the
National Junior Davis Cup team and
was ranked 11th nationally in the junior
division. Eisner has slated him in at

ber six singles titlist last year despit
nursing a painful lower back injury
Peter Osler, a transfer student fror
Indiana last year who immediately wo
the number four singles spot; and Jac
Neinken, two-time number five single
champ whose game is now more powei
ful than in previous seasons.
Adding depth to the squad are a pai
of juniors, Gary Grant and Steve Solys
and four sophomores: Ihor DeBryr
Andrew Halpern, Sheldon Katz, an
Dan Saperstein.
Michigan was ranked 17th nationall
in the pre-season polls, which is an in
provement over last year, when
didn't even make the top 20. Eisnc
feels, however, that the team ca
challenge for the national crown if
continues to develop.
"I think the NCAA championshipi
wide open and there are seven or eigi
teams with a chance to win it all. I fe
we are one of those teams."
Eisner is heartened by the team
performance in several winter tout
naments. Even though the netter
placed ninth (out of 12) in the Nation.
Indoor Team Championship: held la;
month in Madison, they knocked o
defending Big Eight champic
Oklahoma State and 14th ranked Soul
Carolina. Based on that showing alon
Michigan should move up a notch c
two when the next polls come out in

op timisna
e few days.
Outstanding individual performances
n have highlighted the winter activity.
n Etterbeek, the Holland, Mich. native
k who plans to compete in international
,s circuits when he leaves Michigan, top-
pled highly-regarded Steve Denton of
Texas before losing in the quarterfinals
ir of the National Indoor Singles Cham-
pionship in Jaruary.
Etterbeek paired with Horwitch last
d December in Wichita to finish second in
the 32-team National Indoor Doubles
y Tournament. Eisner said the Etter-
n- beek-Horwitch duo is one of the top four
it in the country, noting that the team has
r matured a great deal over the past six
n months.
Last year Michigan was denied a ber-
th in the NCAA Tournament because it
s lost to Wisconsin during the regular
season. (Both teams finished with an 8-
e 1 mark.) The Wolverines later avenged
the defeat, thrashing the Badgers in the
's Big Ten Tournament. Unfortunately, it
r- was too late to warrant an NCAA in-
s vitation. Etterbeek believes Michigan
al will return to the NCAA's this spring.
st "I'm confident about the Big Ten," he
ff said. "In the Big Ten, we can have a
n bad day and still win.
h "But now, for the first year, we can
e, compete with everyone at the national
Dr level. On any given day, I can beat
a anyone. We can beat anyone."

The Michigan women's swimming
team embarks today on its annual quest
for upward movement among the top
ten in the nation with the opening of the
AIAW Nationals meet being held at the
University of Pittsburgh.
After a ninth place finish in the event
last year, marking the first time that
the women tankers broke into the top
ten, the year long aim of the team has
been toward this Nationals meet. It is
their hope to move up to seventh
position, although even head coach Stu
Isaac admits that recapturing the
team's ninth position will be an under-
THERE IS hope though, as Michigan
lost by only three points in their dual
meet with North Carolina, who is one of
the favored contenders for the number
one spot.
Michigan is sending both 200 yard and
400 yard medley relay squads, along
with 200 and 400 yard freestyle relay
In the 200 yard medley relay, Bar-
bara DonCarlos, Marie Palko, Linda
Kendall, and Linda Lease qualified for
the Wolverines with a time of 1:50.75.
The 400 yard medley squad of Don-
Carlos, Palko, Kendall, and Monika
Scheff also qualified, their time was a
KIM OLSON, Katy McCully, Mary


Rish, and Sue Collins qualified in the
200 yard freestyle relay, a time of
1:37.39 getting them to the Nationals. A
time of 3:32.39 qualified the other
freestyle relay (400 yard), which con-
sisted of McCully, Rish, Olson, and
Marion Stanwood.
The Wolverines are well-represented
in the butterfly events, placing swim-
mers in the 50, 100, and 200 yard swins.
Sue Collins qualified in the 50, having
swain a 26.56, Monika Scheff is in the
100, with a 58.29 qualifying time, and
Linda Kendall will swim in the 200,
qualifying with a 2:27.65. Kendall was a
scorer last year in the Nationals at both
the 50 and 200 yard butterfly lengths.
Michigan's women have also covered
the freestyle events like a blanket. Katy
McCully, a consistent scorer at the
Nationals, qualified in the 50, 100, and
200 yard freestyle swims, with times of
24.53, 53.21, and 1:54.41, respectively.
Junior Lori Hughes will be in the 1650
yard freestyle, with a qualifying time of
Others returning to the Nationals
from the Michigan team are Jody Ford
and Julie Bachman. Ford was a
Nationals finalist last year in the in-
dividual medley and has qualified this
year in the 400 yard event with a time of
4:35.21. Sophomore Bachman is retur-
ning National Diving Champion at both
the one meter and three meter heights.
All considered, the Wolverines are
represented well at the Nationals, and,
while the depth may be lacking, the
quality will hopefully make up for it.
