went in to score his first goal in
five playoff games. He cut in on
the right wing his off position,

Kevin Senich won a tight contest
over Brian Engle 7-6. The twelve
point tie breaking system was used
for this meet. Senich however
made Engle look like an easy mark
as he won the match with a 6-0
score in the second set. Senich, a
freshman, is one of the bright
spots in Michigan's tennis future.
Mike Ware completed the sweepi
of the singles matches with a 7-5,

Ross and Ravreby combined for
the doubles competition. They
drubbed Squires and Engles 6-3,

beard several days before he
learned that he was going to start
today. After discovering that it
would have to be shaved before he
played, he reluctantly did so a
half hour before the match.
Toledo coach Pete Kramer com-
mented after the game, "We played
some good sets in the lower seeded
matchups and a good number three
doubles. I'm disappointed, but we
lost to a fine team."
Michigan's coach Brian Eisner
said "We played pretty well
against a good team. My only dis-
appointment is that we had to play
inside because of'the bad weather."
