IIVONIA - The University of Michigan
"olleyball team suffered from inconsistent
serving - highlighted by six bad serves in
one game - in losing to 'Schoolcraft College
last night, 7-15, 15-6, 11-15.
Coach Sandy Vong's netters - now 1-3 -
got off to a bad start in the first game.
Schoolcraft - which took third place in the
National Junior College Championships last year
- had little trouble putting away the disorgan-
ized Wolverines.

Michigan stormed back in the second
game, however, looking like a totally dif-
ferent team. They played well in every
category, particularly spiking and serving,
beating Schoolcraft by nine points.
In the rubber game, the Wolverines ap-
peared headed toward another victory, pulling
ahead 11-8. Then serves began going just about
everywhere but over the net, enabling School-
craft to reel off seven straight points, winning
the match.
