Whilo the women's tennis team is eyeing
its May post season tournaments, the squad's
number two player, Barb Selden, has her
mind on more than just team tournaments.
Selden has been selected to represent the
state of Michigan in the 21 and under division
at the Seventeen Magazine Tournament of
Champions, May 17-21.
The petite, dark haired player is looking
forward to her first trip to California and the
competition which includes the top players from
all over the country.
'Ater playing for a year and
a half straight, three hours per
day, it became a grind."
SELDEN'S SPRING SEASON record at Mich-
igan is an unblemished 7-0. Today at 4:00, Selden
et al will face Miami of Ohio outside on the
varsity courts, if the weather permits.
Selden began playing tennis when she was
ten. Prior to her career on the courts she play-
ed baseball and the switch brought with it a

ural to me. I wasn't strong enough to hit one-
handed then and I've kept it ever since," she
especially bicycle riding. She also enjoys mel-
low music, jazz, and especially Earth, Wind,
SELDEN PLAYED IN THE number one spot
this fall before taking a month's break during
the winter. "After playing for a year and a
half straight, three hours per day, it became
a grind. I had no time to do other things.
Besides, my mental attitude needed a break."
When she returned she started at the bot-
tom of the lineup and worked her way up to
her present number two spot. "I think the break
helped me a lot, attitude-wise," she said.
This summer Selden will join co-captain
Missy Pollick and 40 instructors from all over
the country at Choate School in Connecticut
to teach at a camp.
Selden qualified for the Seventeen tourney
by defeating Debbie Mascarin from MSU in
the semifinals of the Western Regionals.
SHE AND MASCARIN have had a rivalry
since they were ten. "Lately she's beaten me
more than I've beaten her," Selden said. "And
although I lost in the finals, beating Debbie
in the semis was a big personal triumph for
But, for the present, Selden lookstoward
next month and the upcoming tournament play
in Mission Viejo, California.
"I'll be busy with the States, the Nationals
and the Seventeen tourney. I'm really excited
about that trip to California."
Everyone will be there :.. even, Tracy Aus-
tin, Selden's favorite young player and win-
ner in the 12 and under division at the Teen
Tournament last year.
"I want to play tennis and enjoy myself,"

MICHIGAN'S BARB SELDEN slams a forehand during
practice for today's tennis match with Miami of Ohio. Selden
puts her perfect 7-0 record on the line against the Redskins.
The Wolverines' number two singles player was recently
selected to play in the Seventeen Magazine tournament in
'U ' s' Although she's only 5-3, Selden finds her
height has noill effect on her game. "It's de-
ceiving, almost an advantage, because I do go
to the net. I'm not afraid to serve and volley."
Aside from tennis, Selden likes all sports,
