Men take Wichita State tourney. .


Michigan's men's tennis team remained "Cham-
pions of the Midwest" last weekend after a convin-
cing win in the Wichita State Tournament of Cham-
The triangular event, which kicked off the
Wolverines' regular season, was billed "The Battle of
Champions." -Michigan, the Big Ten champs,
defeated Missouri Valley Conference winner Wichita
State, 6-3, Friday night. Oklahoma State proved an
easier test the next day, as Michigan scored an 8-1
triumph over the Big Eight titlist Cowboys.
COACH BRIAN EISNER was delighted with his
team's performance. "All in all, it was a satisfying
weekend for us. The win was particularly good
because we had never played in Wichita before."
Eisner said the key to the Wolverines' successful
Wichita trip was their ability to pull through in the
close matches, and not to get down when they fell
behind by a set.
Michigan was "down" Friday night against the
Shockers, but rallied to grab control of the niatch.
The team lost first sets in all six singles matches to a
Wichita State squad which, according to Eisner,
"played as well as it's capable of."
The upstart Shockers' Mike McMahon stunned Big
Ten number one singles champion Jeff Etterbeek, 6-
3, to spring what could have resulted in a rash of up-
sets and possible Blue defeat. But as the match
progressed, Michigan showed its host who was the
superior team.
SPEARHEADING THE Wolverines were second
singles player Matt Horwitch and the singles trio of
Mike Leach, Pete Osler and Jack Neinken. Horwitch
offset Etterbeek's loss with an exciting tie-breaker
victory over Wichita State's Bill Nichols, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6.
Undefeated freshman Leach, playing number four

singles, had a rough time with his Wichita State op-
ponent, as did Osler and Neinken, at fifth and sixth
singles. Both Leach and Neinken were down service
break in the third set before charging back, while
Osler's match was decided by a tie-breaker.
Neinken, a two-time Big Ten champ at number five
singles, had trouble returning serves at the National
Indoor Team Tournament last month in Madison. Af-
ter the tournament, he worked on this facet of his
game and the effort paid off.
"In Madison, I wasn't making any big points," said
Neinken, a junior. "I couldn't take advantage of
the opportunities I had. In Wichita I wasn't as ten-
tative as before, and I was a little more aggressive. I
took charge of the match, whereas in Madison, I
IN DOUBLES competition, the Etterbeek-Horwit-
ch duo continued its mastery, posting two-set wins in
both matches. Osler and Neinken also netted a pair of
doubles victories, while the team of Leach and Jud
Shaufler settled for a weekend split.
Schaufler, still aggravated by a lower back injury,
said that the prolonged ailment affected his mobility.
The 6-7 junior, who lost both matches at number three
singles over the weekend, wouldn't attribute his
losses to the injury, but said that it was a contributing

opponent had earned Top Twenty status. But

Women win big
The Michigan women's tennis team came back
strong Saturday after an opening loss to Tennessee,
overwhelming Iowa, Indiana State, and Vanderbilt in
the three remaining matches of their weekend series
in Nashville.
The netters lost four matches to the Volunteers
from Tennessee, although each Wolverine went the
maximum three sets before bowing out. The winners
for the Wolverines in the match were number two
singles player Sue Weber, who is currently 9-0 on the
season, and Karen Krickstein at number five singles,
now 6-0 for the year. The number one doubles team of
Kathy Karzen and Barb Fischley also came out on
the winning side.
AFTER THE LOSS to Tennessee, the Blue netters
regrouped and blew out the opposition in their last
three matches. The team lost only one individual
match after Tennessee, to Iowa, while sweeping both
Indiana State and Vanderbilt, 9-0.
The Vanderbilt win was particularly gratifying to
first-year Coach Theo Shepherd. "The Vanderbilt
victory was very important to us," Shepherd com-
mented. "They are an especially good team."
One of the highlights of the match was Karzen's
defeat of Julie Maxzy in their number one singles en-
counter. Maxzy is one of the top-rated singles players
in the country.
"WE WERE sorry to lose to Tennessee-Knoxville,
but I think it made us play better the rest of the
weekend," Shepherd said. "I am still not sure about
how good the team is. I'll have to see how the team
does against Northwestern on Friday. That will tell
us a lot."
The women's next match is 3 p.m. Friday at the
Huron Valley Tennis Club.

Umps rapped
NEW YORK AP-Umpires are trying
to circumvent a valid contract, which
has been sustained in the federal cour-
ts, the American and National leagues
charged yesterday in a joint statement.
Meanwhile, testimony continued in a
federal court in Philadelphia in the
dispute between the major leagues and
51 umpires who refused to work until
they get more money.
"Baseball has a valid contract with
the Umpires Association, which has
been sustained in the federal courts and
runs through 1981"'the leagues contend.
"The present dissatisfaction of umpires
with their contracts seems to be based
in part on salaries now being paid the
players. While the umpires perform an
important function in our game, they
are not the attraction. The players, are
the game. But while umpire salaries
cannot be compared to player salaries,
umpires as a group are better compen-
sated than any other non-playing group
in baseball."
