said Bronco coach Fred Decker,
whose team is currently 7-9
fresh off a split of a four game
series with Ohio State.
"We would like to win 'em,"
Decker added. He said experi-
menting is over with. Western

This year, sophomore Dave
Cassetto is the staff's most con-
sistent pitcher. He is 2-1 with a
3.12 ERA. His latest win was
on Friday, a 7-4 victory over the
Buckeyes.
Cassetto and Brad Bonk will
be facing the Wolverines to-
day. Bonk, a right-hander as
is Cassetto, sports a 1-1 record.
"We've been playing pretty
good defense. I think we're cap-
able of scoring some runs, but
we've had problems keeping
them with our pitching," Deck-
er said.
The Broncos have a solid 2.79
team batting average. Third-
baseman Jerry Miklosi leads the
club with a .375 average. Mike
Girskis, who has played bothj
first base and designated hitter,

has been hitting at a .359 clip.
Co-captain Jim Millward, who
has a career total of 34 stolen
bases, is hitting .345. Center-
fielder Millward's career thefts,
plus his 1976 total of 19 are both
school records.
Probable pitchers for Mich-
igan are junior Bill Stennett
and freshman Steve Howe. The
two hurled the victories in the
Wolverines double dipping of
Detroit last week. Stennett is
2-0 and Howe is 2-1, so out of
Michigan's 13 games and sev-.
en wins, these two are respon-
sible for five decisions, four
being wins.
The Wolverine staff will be
severely tested tomorrow, and
it is hoping for better results
than last year's doubleheader at
K a1a m a z o o. Western swept
Michigan on April 13, 7-4 and
6-2.
"We played well that day last
year," Decker said. He said
everything depends on the Bron-
cos' pitching for today's games.
"If we get the pitching, we're
gonna give Michigan two gold
games," he concluded.

By BOB WARREN
The Michigan Womens tennis team, fresh
off a disappointing loss at the hands of Ohio
State, will be hosting Central Michigan today
at 3:00.
Central should not be taken too lightly be-
cause the school from Mt. Pleasant gave
Michigan a tough match last fall, losing 6-3.
"WE COULD LOSE to Central," Michigan
coach John Atwood said. "Last fall, the
match was tied 3-3 after the singles and we
haven't changed our singles lineup that
much."
Although Michigan was generally outplayed
by OSU Saturday, they hope to be in better
playing shape for today's match.
"I think the loss to OSU did a lot of good
for us," Atwood commented. "We may have
lost 7-2, but I think there were several fac-
tors that could have had the match go the
other way."
Some of these factors were Debbie Rent-
schler's illness that had an effect on her play
plus Michigan's lack of competitive opposi-
tion prior to the match.
"IF WE PLAYED schools of the caliber
that Ohio State has played this year, I have
no doubt in my mind that we would have
beaten them," Atwood continued.

"Kathy Karzen would have won her singles
match as well as her doubles match (with
Barb Selden) if she had played more com-
petitive tennis."
Selden and Jan Karzen (7-5, 7-5) were the
only winners against OSU and Atwood was
particularly pleased with their performances.
"Barb, and for that matter Kathy, were
very motivated this weekend. Barb, who won
6-2, 6-3, performed great."
"JAN WAS TERRIFIC. Last fall she was
defeated convincingly by Laura Schubert, but
this time she concentrated and made every
game close. Schubert is a class player, but
since Jan returned so many of Schubert's
good shots, she caused the OSU girl to lose
her psychological edge."
Atwood had some interesting comments
about his number one doubles team that
may be unexpected in light of its 1-2 record
this weekend.
"Although Kathy and Barb lost twice this
weekend I think they are still the number
one doubles team in the midwest."
"OUR SECOND doubles team couldn't show
much because of Debbie's illness but al-
though our third team was routed they
showed some good working strategy," Atwood
said.
