Women corral Broncos
and Mother Nature too
By ERROL SHIFMAN
Taking their cue from the post office, Michigan's womens tennis team over-
came wind, rain, train smoke and a change of scenery yesterday in bucking the
Weston Michigan Broncos, 9-0.
The wind played havoc with lobs and service tosses and drop shots were com-
mon. Early in the match, black smoke from a passing train was blown in, covering
the courts. Midway through the singles, a short sprinkling of rain added to the nip-
Forced outside because of the mens match going on inside, the lady netters
literally breezed through the singles competition, losing only ten games between
the six of them.
The women moved inside for their doubles routine, playing side by side with
the men, and showed they were not just mudders.'
Pepper-pot Susan Weber led the rout, throwing a shutout at her foe in third
"It was really crazy with the wind," said Weber. "The service toss on one side
had to be to the right and on the other side it had to be to the left, just to get it in the
Kathy Krickstein, moving up to number two, remained unbeaten this year
with a 6-0, 6-2 drubbing of Sue Ghindia. Krickstein is now 5-0 for the season in
singles and 4-0 in doubles with her roommate-partner Lisa Wood.
Wood used the cross court forehand to perfection in her match, downing Bron-
co Jean Gallagher, 6-1, 6-0. Gallagher managed only six points in the second set.
In doubles; the duo of Karzen and Ann "Swatter" Kercher blanked their op-
ponents, 6-0, 6-0. The sharp net play of Kercher roped the Bronco pair point after
Blue Coach John Atwood shook up his line-up for second and third doubles.
Diaz-Perez and Weber, scheduled to be third doubles behind Krickstein and
Wood, were moved up to the number two spot. Senior co-captain Missy Pollick and
number six singles Elaine Crosby were inserted at third doubles.
"Missy hasn't played and I wanted to get her in because she probably won't
play again this year," explained Atwood. "Also I wanted Leticia and Sue to play a
tougher match than they were supposed to."
Both pairs were equal to their assignments.
The Diaz-Perez-Weber combo held Western's team of Jean Gallagher and Sue
Ghindia to just four points in the first set enroute to a 6-0, 6-1 triumph.
Pollick and Crosby had an easy time also, 6-1, 6-0.
Western Coach Janet McCutcheon was not at all surprised by the Broncos' per-
formance in their first match of the year.
"I didn't expect them to do well their first match," sighed McCutcheon. "The
kids were pretty scared too because Michigan is always supposed to be so strong."
The Wolverine ladies will try to increase their strength this weekend in
Columbus at the Buckeye Open.

Tigers claw Texas

three-run homer off Doc Medich,

victory over the Texas Rangers last
Dave Rozema, the American
League's rookie pitfher of the year
in 1977, scattered six hits in his first
outing of the 1978 season.
The Tigers chased Medich, who
was making his debut with the
Rangers after being obtained in the
off-seasson as a free agent.
After walks to Rusty Staub and,
Steve Kemp, Tim Corcoran
delivered a two-out single to drive in
one run. May then drilled his second
homer of the season deep into the
right field stands.
Mike Hargrove's sacrifice fly in
the third inning gave the Rangers a
1-0 lead against Rozema, but the
Tigers moved in front in the fourth
on RBI singles by Corcoran and Alan
Richie Zisk homered in the ninth
for the Rangers' other run.
With the win against the Rangers,
the Tigers now have a 3-1 record.

Men get set for tough
series with MSU rout
By PETE LEININGER
There was little magic in the play of the Michigan State tennis team yesterday,
as the Wolverines trounced the Spartans 9-0 at the Track and Tennis'Building.
The score was so lop-sided, that no Spartan player won more than three games
in any given set. "This was our best indoor match so far this season," commented
Michigan coach Brian Eisner.
In first singles play, Michigan's Jeff Etterbeek breezed past Tighe Keating 6-1,
6-2. Etterbeek kept Keating from moving up and playing net, with continual deep:
shots to the baseline.
"It's always fun to play Michigan State. The key to the win was that I never got
too relaxed with my play," stated Etterbeek.
Matt Horwitch, showing little signs of ill-effect in his third match since his one-
month layoff, downed Spartan Steve Klemm 6-3, 6-2. "There is still a little pain in
my foot (which is still broken)," said Horwitch, a freshman.
"I was a bit lackadaisical. When I wasn't moving, I had problems, but I felt
very confident today," added Horwitch.
Michigan's Brad Holland got back on the right track with his6-1, 6-3 victory
over Frank Willard. "I felt really good today. It's good to get back indoors (after
playing outdoors this past weekend). I felt more confident," exclaimed Holland.
Jud Shaufler, who has been suffering from a strained lower back in recent
days, easily defeated Matt Sandler. Shaufler didn't play outside this past weekend
for fear of aggravating his back in the cold weather.
Playing probably his best tennis so far, Ihor Debryn crushed the Spartan's
Steve Heitzner 6-0, 6-1. "I'm just starting to feel good about my play. My serve was
working, which really helped."
Another recently recovered Wolverine, Jack Neinken, had an easy time with
his Spartan counterpart. "After just getting over a cold, I can't really complain
about my play," said Neinken.
The Wolverines kept things rolling, sweeping the three doubles matches in
straight sets. The first doubles pair of Etterbeek and Horwitch subdued the Spar
tan tandem of Keating and Klemm.
Second doubles action saw the team of Shaufler-Holland defeat Willard
Carter, while Peter Osler and Ollie Owens downed the Sandler-Heitzner team il
Michigan is now 6-0 overall and 3-0 in Big Ten play. The Wolverines travel to
Northwestern for a Friday meet and then to Wisconsin for a Sunday meet.
"We'll have to be our sharpest against Wisconsin. That4neet is like the
Michigan-Ohio State football game for us," concluded Eisner.
