By JEFF SCHILLER
When the term total domination is
used in conjunction with a collegiate
sports team, one usually thinks at the
national level of UCLA basketball, or
perhaps, Indiana swimming. Coach
Brian Eisner's Michigan tennis team
hasn't quite reached that level yet,
but the Wolverines have already built
a Big Ten dynasty of overwhelming
porportions and seem on the verge of
becoming a symbol of tennis supre-
macy on the national scene.
As they waited in anticipation of
the NCAA championships in June,
the Michigan netmen had already
compiled a 14-1 dual meet record in-
cluding a win over last year's NCAA
runner-up USC. The Wolverines' only
defeat came at the hands of UCLA,
third place finisher in 1973.
In Big Ten play, the Wolverines
swept their nine dual matches and
captured eight firsts and one second
in the Big 10 turnament as a Michi-
gan player or players reached the
finals at all six singles and all three
doubles positions.
This record is awesome in and of
itself, but it is particularly impres-
sive when one considers that the

netters have accomplished all this
without the services of freshman
Peter Fleming, their number 2 singles
player who has not played a singles
match as yet this year because of a
back injury. In addition, Victor Ama-
ya, Fred DeJesus, Eric Friedler, and
Kevin Senich, Michigan's 1, 3, 4, and
5 players have played a considerable
part in the season below form be-
cause of persistent ailments.
The team in led by Amaya, a junior
from Holland, Michigan who placed
5th in the NCAA tournament as a
freshman in '73. Amaya who is 6'5"
tall is the possessor of a blistering
serve and has already received many
offers to turn pro.
JUST behind Amaya are three play-
ers possessing equal credentials.
Freshman Peter Fleming received
the pre-season nod for the number
two spot - no small accomplishment
in view of sophomore Fred DeJesus'
ranking as the best junior player in
the country on three separate occa-
sions and Eric Friedler's Big 10 num-
ber two singles championship as a
freshman. Though Friedler and De-

Jesus were forced to play one and
often two positions above normal
during the season, they each respond-
ed with 16-2 records and Big 10 indi-
vidual championships.
The final ingredient in the Wol-
verines success story is their tremen-
dous depth; Captain Kevin Senich, a
Big 10 champion in his sophomore
and junior years plays 5th man sin-
gles while unbelievably, senior Jeff
Miller who was number two singles
champ as a freshman has a fight to
hold on to the number six slot and
a place in the line-up .
SENIOR Jerry Karzan, twice the
Illinois state runner-up in high school
was not expected to even play sin-
gles this year, but when injuries
forced him into service, he respond-
ed with a 17-1 mark, best on the
squad. Even 8th man Jim Holman
was 8-0 on the season and teamed
with Karzan for the number three
doubles titles in the Big 10.
Prospects for the nationals (at Los
Angeles after press time) were large-
ly dependent on Fleming's health and
form. If he was able to play, the

Wolverines possessed four nationally
ranked players and two nationally
ranked doubles teams (Amaya = Frie-
dler and DeJesus - Fleming).
Even if Fleming was unavailable,
the Wolverines still posed, a formid-
able threat but his replacement will
likely suffer from a lack of top-flight
national competition.
STANFORD was still considered the
favorite even without Wimbleton semi-
finalist Alex (Sandy) Mayer but the
Wolverines were among the top
challengers ,in the battle for second
place and had an outside chance at
the team title .
That's last year. This year the
Wolverines lost only Senich and they
have already recruited several top
prep stars including New York's Bud-
dy Gallagher. 'And the top four will
still be around in 1976. The UCLA
basketball team and the Indiana
swimmers were dethroned this sea-
son so it's time for a new collegiate
dynasty to establish itself at the top
of the roost. Michigan tennis fans
may have to look no further than
the varsity tennis courts to find col-
lege sports' new powerhouse.

tance crew will be headed up on Michigan that contained the statement, "The Michigan Daily
is one of the top student newspapers in the country." Daily
Sports is looking for qualified (or willing) persons to carry on
this tradition.
Do you have what it takes to be a Daily Sportswriter?
Most of the American population does. The only real require-
ment is a working knowledge of English, although the ability to
type and a knowledge of APBA baseball are skills that will come
in handy.
Could you hit the bars of Minneapolis with a crowd of drunk
and stoned hockey players and not get busted by the police?
Roger Rossiter of the Daily Sports Staff did it.
Could you spend a weekend in Ames, Iowa, called by many
the world's deadest town, covering the NCAA wrestling champ-
ionships and live to tell about it? Clarke Cogsdill did it.
Could you get the word from Campy Russell that he was
not going to withdraw his name from the NBA hardship list,
and sit in frustration because your paper is not publishing that
day? John Kahler did it.
yBut the life of a Daily Sports staffer is not all glamor, as
anyone who has locked a page at 1:30 a.m. can tell you.
Somebody has to produce the layouts for each night's page,
! write headlines, and translate AP copy.
This is where trainees come in. As Marc Feldman, our sports
editor, would tell you, trainee work is a few months off your
life that will prepare you for the life of a night editor, a job
that on winter sports Saturdays will take years off your life
expectancy.
Being a trainee entails coming into the cramped, but ef-
ficient, Daily offices for one evening a week and writing head-
lines, reading proof, and telling phone callers the score of that
night's basketball game. In the process you learn more about
the newspaper business than the Journalism Department could
teach you in four years.
And then there is writing. You may not be turned loose on
Bo Schembechler right away, but Newt Loken and Bill Frieder
are fascinating people to know. On any given day the Daily
runs advances, rehashes, covers, features, and stories in cate-
gories by themselves, so boredom will never set in.
As boss, Marc Feldman is a firm, but just taskmaster who
will answer any questions you have about the nature of
