FORMER MICHIGAN ACE SUCCEEDS STAGER

Farley is named new swim coach

By MARK MIHANOVIC
A new reign begins in Michigan swimming.
Yesterday athletic director Don Canham an-
nounced that William "Bill" Farley has returned
to his alma mater to replace Gus Stager as men's
swimming coach.
Stager had announced his retirement before
entering his 25th year at Michigan.
The 35-year-old Farley is a native of
LaCanada, California. He left the California sun
in 1962 to become one of the Big Ten's premier
swimmers'at Michigan. Swimming under Stager
from 1962 to 1966, he won the conference titles in
the 500-yard freestyle three years in a row, and
in the 200-yard and 1,650-yard freestyles once
each.
Stager has mentioned Farley as one of the all-
time great Michigan swimmers. Testimony is
given in that he was a medal winner at 1500

meters for the U.S. Olympic team in 1964 at
Tokyo.
Farley coached the Blue freshmen swim team
to a Big Ten Championship in 1967 before moving
on to Eastern Michigan the next year. He was an
assistant coach at EMU while studying for his
master's degree in physical education.
In 1970, Farley was appointed head coach at
Princeton, where he developed one of the most
respected and successful programs in the East.
Princeton accumulated an 80-21 dual meet
record under Farley, also winning six straight
Eastern swimming and diving championships.
In 1972, the Tigers compiled an 11-0 overall
record, and Farley was honored as the NCAA
Division II 'Coach of the Year'.
-Farley is succeeding one of the most suc-
cessful coaches in Michigan athletic history. Gus
Stager led the Wolverines to a 170-39-1 dual meet
record, three Big Ten Championships, and four
NCAA titles, three straight from 1957-59, upon

succeeding the legendary Matt Mann in 1954..
Stager had also coached the victorious 1960 U.S.
Olympic team.
Farley is inheriting a very talented and young
team, and the pressure will be on him from the
start to pick up where Stager left off. Sophomore
freestylers Fernando Canales and Bob Murray
lead the swimmers returning from a 12-1 season.
The Wolverines' only dual meet loss came by
one point at Alabama. They broke a string of 18
straight losses to Indiana with a thrilling 58-55
win at Matt Mann Pool, and finished second to
the Hoosiers in the Big Ten Championships last
month. According to+Stager, the tide is turning in
Big Ten swimming, and Bill Farley is the man to
lead Michigan back to supremacy.
If Farley has anywhere near the wisdom, and
capabilities of his old coach, (and indications are
that he does), Michigans men's swimming team
will be in good hands for many years to come.

Just for the
health of it.

The long-awaited opening of the Big
Ten men's tennis season proved to be
very routine for the Michigan 'netters
last weekend as the Wolverines shut out
both Illinois and Purdue, 9-0.
Coupled with the Michigan
whitewash of Kentucky last week, the
Blue netters have compiled a 27-0 road'
record in the last seven days, as Coach
Brian Eisner and his team prepare to
defend their Big Ten title.

Osler-Ihor Debryn all won in straight
sets to complete the sweep.
AFTER DISPOSING of the Fighting
Illini, the Wolverines ventured to Pur-
due to oppose last year's Big Ten cellar-
dweller. Led by fourth singles player
Jud Shaufler (6-1, 6-1), Michigan
blanked the Boilermakers without
losing a single set to conclude a near-
perfect weekend.
Reflecting on the easy weekend
sweep of two conference foes, Eisner
revealed three pluses which con-
tributed to the Michigan success. The
most important, of course, was the -
return of Big Ten number one singles
champion Jeff Etterbeek from the
throes of an ankle injury. "Jeff's play
was outstanding," said Eisner. "The
ankle did not bother him at all. For-
tunately, the indoor surface at Illinois is
comparable to ours, so he felt comfor-
table. It's a slow surface, so there is a
lot of movement."
Etterbeek must have felt comfor-
table, as he triumphed in singles (6-2, 6-
4) and paired up with Matt Horwitch to
win, 6-3, 6-1.
AT PURDUE, however, Eisner said
that "the surface was very fast and Jeff
was unbelievable. He is definitely back
and healthy." At West Lafayette, Et-
terbeek rolled to a 6-1, 6-1 singles win
and teamed with Horwitch to win first
doubles, 6-2, 6-2 - a total of four im-
pressive personal triumphs over the
weekend.
Another plus was the play of Ihor
Debryn, giving the Wolverines a much-
needed seventh man in the lineup to of-
fset the possibility of injury during the
season. At Illinois, DeBryn paired with
Peter Osler to win third . doubles in
straight sets, 7-6, 6-4.
Gaining confidence and momentum
with every match, the netters hope to
continue their success this week. The
Wolverines host Division III national
champs Kalamazoo College today and
Eastern Michigan tomorrow beforeF
traveling to Minnesota and Iowa City
this weekend to face two of the con-
ference's first division squads.

Failure to win the close matches hurt
the Michigan women's tennis team.
Sunday as it lost to Ohio State, 7-2.
Of the seven matches that went three
sets at the Liberty Racquet Club, the
Wolverines managed to win but two.
OSU Coach Barbara Mueller said her
team was mentally prepared for Sun-
day's match because of Michigan's
reputation and the Wolverines' perfor-
mance so far this season.
"I KNEW IT was going to be a tough.
match. But they were sure they could
beat Michigan. I thought it would be
closer than it was," she said.
Mueller added that a press release
issued from Columbus on March 26
which didn't mention the Wolverines as
a contender was an oversight.
"Michigan, along with Indiana and
Northwestern, has always been near
the top of the Big Ten," she said.
Most of Ohio State's victories didn't
come easily. For example, second
seeded Sue Sutherland survived two
match points against her in defeating
Michigan's Sue Weber, 4-6, 7-6, 6-3. In
the fourth seed matchup, Barb Fischley
fell to OSU's Ann Beaudoin, 2-6, 7-5, 6-3.
OTHER THREE-SET winners in
singles included third seed Wendy
Stewart and sixth seed Mindee Epstein,
as they beat Michigan's Whit Stoghill
and Ann Kercher, respectively.
In doubles, Kercher and Lisa Wood
lost to Ohio State's Maria Oliza Gastio
and Mary Ann Nelson, 6-4, 5-7, 7-6.
Gastio also triumphed in number one.
singles, defeating Michigan's Kathy
Karzen, 6-3, 6-4.
The other straight set win came when
the team of Sutherland and Stewart
beat Michign's Karzen and Fischley, 6-
4, 6-1.
WHILE disappointed with the out-
come of the match, Blue Coach Theo
Shepherd had no complaints aLqut the
,team's effort. "There were many split
decisions. When you have such good
teams and close matches, you can't
really tell who is going to win," she

said.
Shepherd wasn't kidding when she
said it was hard to tell who would win.
That certainly applied to the battle
between the fifth seeds; Michigan's
Kathy Krickstein and Laura Schubert
of OSU.
After losing the first set, 5-7, and
trailing the second, 0-5, Krickstein's
game suddenly caught fire.
She won the next seven games and 13
out of the last 16 for a come-from-
behind 5-7, 7-5, 6-3 victory. Though
trailing badly for most of the match,
Krickstein said she kliew that she could
win.

... sees action
Champ-aign, Eixner was worried about
the unfamiliarity of competing outside
for the first time. Due to the adverse
April weather conditions, however, the
matches were forced inside.
The team seized advantage of the in-
door surface to crush Illinois on Friday.
Five of the six singles matches were
won in straight sets, paced by third
singles freshman Mike Leach (6-2, 6-3)
and senior Peter Osler (6-2, 6-2). The

... win streak ended
"I WASN'T concentrating before and
I missed a lot of easy shots," she said.
The only other Wolverine bright spot
came when Krickstein paired with
Stodghill for a 5-7, 7-5, 6-3 win over Ohio
State's Beaudoin and Laura Schubert.
The defeat leaves Michigan with a
still-impressive 11-2 mark. The netters
will have a chance to improve on that
record today when they play Central
Michigan in the Track-Tennis Building
at 3 p.m.

Blue stickmen slosh to success

0

By TOM STEPHENS
Michigan's lacrosse club has already
faced most of its toughest opponents
this season and has shaped a respec-
table 4-3 record. The stickmen's
greatest adversary thus far has been
the unseasonable Michigan weather,
and it's an obstacle still to be overcome.
After slipping to 1-3 in early-season
losses to Tulane, Ohio Wesleyan, and
Columbus, the Wolverines came back
in the past week to score big victories
over Northwestern and Kent State, both
by comfortable 10-5 scores, and edge
Chicago in Sunday's driving rain 8-7. A
previous game with powerful Ohio
State on April 4th was snowed out.
"I'm kind of depressed about the
conditions," lamented Michigan Coach

Bob DiGiovanni after the Chicago
game. "Ice forms in the pocket of the
stick and you can't even pass the ball.
I'm pleased with the win, though,
because it's a helluva day to try to play
anything out there."
Michigan's last two- victories were
keyed by sophomore attackman Tom
Simon, the club's leading goal-scorer,
with five counters in the Kent State rout
and four more against Chicago.
Simon is pleasantly surprised by his
21-goal output so far this year. "Bobby
Fleischman handles the ball behind the
net in our offense," explained Simon,
"and every time I get the ball (from
Fleischman) I have a shot in front. I
think we're really coming together as a
team now."

Fleischman, last year's Midwest
leader in assists, also seemed satisfied
with the club's offensive
arrangement. "That's my position," he
said. "I like going behind the net where
I can really see what's going on,'
The junior attackman, who leads the'
club in total scoring this year with 9
goals and 21 assists, agreed with Simon
that the tough games so far this year
have put the team in a position where
"we're really rolling now. That team
(Chicago) was just a notch below the
best varsity team in the Midwest."
DiGiovanni summed up his team's
current situation. "We've played most
of our hard games already (Wesleyan,
Columbus, and Chicago)" he said, "and
we have a 4-3 record, so I'm looking
forward to the rest of the season."
Game timeSunday against Detroit,
whose squad includes a couple of talen-
ted refugees from last year's Michigan
team, is 8 p.m. on the Tartan Turf.
