Michigan burned by umps,
split with Bowling Green


Special To The Daily
Everything started out just fine yesterday
in Bowling Green for the Michigan baseball
team ... then things got a bit frustrating.
The Wolverines took the first half of their
doubleheader with the Falcons 5-4 on the
strength of Craig McGinnis' 6-hit pitching,
only to lose the second game 5-1 despite
outhitting Bowling Green 11-10.
MICHIGAN'S FIRST game fireworks began
in the third inning when Dan Cooperider beat
out a ground ball to second. Losing pitcher
Jeff Jones then.walked Dave Chapman, set-
ting the table for Wolverine captain Mark
Grenkowski who blasted a Jones fastball over
the leftfield fence, giving Michigan a 3-2 lead.
After falling behind 4-3, Michigan tied the
game in the fourth when a two-out single by
Chapman scored Cooperider, who had moved
into scoring position on an error by the
second baseman.
The game remained deadlocked until the
seventh, when singles by Grenkowski, Scott
Anderson, and Bob Wasilewski loaded the
bases with one out. Reliever Jim Joyce then
walked the first man he faced; fellow Toledo-
an and close friend Mike Parker, on four
straight pitches, forcing in the winning run.
A STILL STRONG McGinnis mowed down
the Falcons in the bottom of the seventh to
preserve the lead.
McGinnis gave up all four runs in the first
three innings and then pitched one-hit ball
the rest of the way, in squaring his season's

record at 1-1. He struck out five and walked
only one batter.
In the nightcap, Wolverine starter Steve
Perry and Falcon Perry Milton traded goose
eggs until the fifth, when Michigan tallied
its lone run on singles by Grenkowski, Ander-
son, and a double by Wasilewski.
THE MICHIGAN bubble burst in the bot-
tom of the fifth when Perry gave up a walk
and a double to knot the score. It looked as if
Perry would get out of the inning when, with
two out, two consecutive Falcon batters
reached base on infield hits, aided by contro-
versial calls by the umpires.
Michigan coach Moby Benedict was ejected
following the second call for his lrotestations.
The next batter tripled, knocking in two
runs and that was it for the hard luck Wol-
Michigan was hampered in the swond game
by three Bowling Green double plays and 11
men left on base, along with the two ques-
tionable infield calls.
THE LOSS was Perry's second against one
win this season. Kevin Clinton finished out
the game for the Wolverines.
Leading hitter Rick Leach missed both
games which no doubt hurt the Wolverines.
The team will play Western Michigan Tues-
day in a 'doubleheader at Fisher Stadium,
followed by a single home game Wednesday
against Wayne State.
Big Ten competition will begin Saturday
when leading contenders Minnesota and Iowa
come into town for a pair of doubleheaders.

Blue le
Michigan's men'sttennis team has yet
to feel the warmth of the sun this
season because of the long winter and
typically late Michigan spring. The
foul weather has forced the netters to
play all three of their matches indoors.
But they aren't complaining because
they have won three straight indoors.
"We havewsuch a nice facility indoors
that we might as well play inside un
less the conditions outside are near
perfect and besides most of the players
like it (playing) inside because there
are less distractions," explained Michi-
gan coach Brian Eisner.
"Playing inside is more enjoyable
for the spectators and also reduces the
chances of injuries to players," con-
cluded Eisner.
Yesterday's "inside" victim was
last year's NCAA Division III
Champion Kalamazoo College.
Michigan blitzed the Fighting Hor-
nets by shutting them out 12-0.
"Kalamazoo College is noted as hav-
ing a long tradition of good tennis

teams and is regarded as one of the
top five small colleges in the nation
this year," commented Eisner during
the introduction of the players before
the match.
But the Hornets didn't have it yester-
day as they failed to win a single match
and the best they could do was to take
Wolverine netters into the third set on
three different occasions before losing.
Play started off with a new twist,
with doubles matches first, fol-
lowed by singles. Playing the dou-
bles first is a new Big Ten trend
because it allows the players to
get used to- the surface before
playing singles.
Highlighting the doubles play was
the number one match between Michi-
gan's duo of Jeff Etterbeek and Judd
Shaufler and Kalamazoo's Jim HosneX
and Harlan Smith. Etterbeek and
Shaufler took command from the start
with excellent serving and volleying
which carried them to a 6-2, 6-2 win.
Shaufler continuously pounded over-
heads out of the reach of the Hornet

"Sometimes I've got it and some-
times I don't," said Shaufler, the giant
6-7 freshman from Wisconsin, after the
match, commenting on his powerful
overhead. "In doubles I like to be ag-
gressive and take the net and I would
also prefer a faster court surface than
this for doubles," added Shaufler. -
"Shaufler is the hardest working
player I've had in 15 years and he
is always trying to improve his
game," said Eisner about the man
who brings back memories of for-
mer Michigan great Victor Amaya.
Other double matches saw Michigan's
number four team of Rich Garcia and
Scott Seeman outlast John Hosner and
Barry Bedfor of Kalamazoo 6-4, 2-6,
6-2. In another three set match Dan
Arononic and Gary Grant teamed up
at number five doubles to hold off a
late charge by Hornets' David Kes-
sench and Ed Rychawalski 4-6, 6-2, 6-4.
Arononic also had the most excit-
ing singles match of the day by de-
feating David Kamisar. After win-

ning the first set 7-5 Arononic
dropped the second set 6-3 to set
up the showdown third set.
With the score knotted six games
apiece, a nine point, tie breaker was
played in which Arononic prevailed
6-3 to win the third set 7-6.
The netters' next match is away
April 12 versus cross-state rival Michi-
gan State and their next home match is
against Big Ten power Wisconsin.

Toronto advances in playoffs
PITTSBURGH.-Lanny McDonald scored three goals and as-
sisted on two more to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 5-2
victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins in the final game of their
National Hockey League playoff series.
The Maple Leafs, who won the best-of-three set with a pair
of victories here to offset a loss on their home ice, advanced to
the quarter-finals where they will meet Philadelplia or Boston.
McDonald assisted on first-period power play goals by
Borje Salming and Ian Turnbull that gave Toronto a 2-0 lead
before Jean Pronovost scored for Pittsburgh with 20 seconds
left on another power play in the penalty-ridden opening
A total of 38 penalty minutes were assessed in that hotly
contested period, and Pittsburgh drew 25 of them, as well as a
game misconduct against Syl Apps for fighting.
McDonald then scored two goals in the second period. The
first came 8:46 into the period on a drop pass from Daryl
Sittler, and McDonald gave Toronto a 4-1 lead with 3:43 left in
the second period after taking a pass in the slot from Turnbull.
With 3:54 left in the second period, Penguin rookie Blair
Chapman drove in a 15-foot slapshot from the slot to trim the
margin to 4-2.
In the final period, the Penguins lifted their goalie with
58 seconds left and with 16 seconds remaining McDonald
eased his third goal of the night into an empty net.
The Penguins were ousted from the playoffs for the second
straight season by Toronto, which beat them in the same first
round series a year ago.
Old-timer Oerter wins again
BROOKVILLE, N.Y.-Al Oerter, winner of the discus throw in
four consecutive Olympics, continued his comeback for the 1980
Games by winning his specialty Saturday in the fifth annual Post
College Relays.
The 40-year old Oerter, who captured the gold medal
from 1956 through 1968 for an unprecedented feat, came
through with a toss of 199 feet, 8 inches.
A computer analyst with Grumman Aircraft Corp., the Kansas
University graduate beat out Art Swarts of the Philadelphia Pio-
neers by 11 inches.
Glance robbed of record?

University sprint star Harvey Glance a possible world's record

Glance was hand-timed at 9.75, well under the world

Accutrack, connected to the starter's gun, did not function.
The three officials' watches had Glance at 9.69, 9.75 and
9.80, all under the recognized world record.
A hand-started electronic system caught Glance in 9.78. A
similar malfunction at the Texas Relays last week kept Univer-
sity of Texas freshman Jimmy Jones from a world record in
the same event. Distances up to 400 meters must now be elec-

Gridders progressing well
Bo Schembechler says his grid team is doing about as well
as could be expected at this stage of spring drills.
"We have a lotta nuisance injuries right now, and that
naturally takes away the effectiveness we could be developing,
he said Saturday. "But that's also very typical at this point
in spring practice.
"We practiced today for two hours without four players
we consider to be regulars on offense, so you have to figure
that hurts us quite a bit."
The squad's annual Blue and White spring game has been
scheduled for next Saturday at 2 p.m. For the first time, there
will be a $1 admission fee. The proceeds will go for a women's
athletic scholarship fund.
Swimming records toppled
CANTON, Ohio-Two American teenagers, Olympic gold
medalist Jill Sterkel and Bonnie Glasgow, and Canadian Olym-
pian Nancy Garapick set records Saturday in qualifying for the
national Amateur Athletic Union indoor swimming meet.
Sterkel, 15, a high school sophomore from El Monte, Calif.,
who swam on the Unit'ed States' gold medal winning 400-meter
freestyle relay lowered the 100-yard freestyle mark.
Sterkel's time of 49.72 seconds wiped out her own Ameri-
can standard of 49.85 set a year ago.
Glasgow, 17, from Baltimore, set American and American
