Special To The Daily
MT. PLEASANT - Michigan's women's
tennis team swept the doubles competition
and narrowly escaped. defeat here yester-.
day in a 6-3 triumph over Central Michigan.
The Chippewas provided the toughest
competition the Wolverines have seen all
year. They were helped by blustery winds,
and rowdy fa'ns, but Michigan overcame
these obstacles to post their fourth victory
in as many outings.
The meet ehtered the doubles competi-
tion tied at three apiece. Michigan's num-
ber one doubles team of Barbara Selden and
Kathy Karzen dropped their opening set 4-6.
Then the tide suddenly turned for this
nationally ranked duo and they hit winners
like they were going out of style. They easily
won the next two set 6-1 and 6-2.
Michigan sealed the victory as Ann Ker-
cher and Deborah Rentschler won second
doubles 6-4, 6-7.
Jan Karzen and Elaine Crosby provided
the final margin of victory with a 6-1, 7-5
third doubles win. They won the last five
games of the second set to prevent the
match from continuing.
Michigan's losses in the singles matches
were more noticeable than their victories.
Barbara Selden, at number one, lost to
CMU freshperson Kellie Serges 5-7, 3-6. Sel-
den was not -as upset with her play as she

was with the Central fans who taunted her
during the match.
"You don't expect the crowd to behave
like animals," said the sophomore, "their
team's good enough, they don't need the
crowd razzing their opposition."
IN FIFTH SINGLES Jan Karzen lost a
two hour and fifteen minute marathon-like
match, 5-7, 7-6 (winning a 5-4 tiebreaker),
and 4-6. "She's tough," said coach John
Atwood.
Ann Kercher was knocked off at third
singles 0-6, 2-6. "I just didn't have it to-
day," said Kercher. She came back how-
ever to play fine doubles.
Kathy Karzen continued her strong play
in the number two spot with a 6-2, 6-0
clobbering of Central's Toni Serges.
FRESHPERSON RENTSCHLER dropped.
her first set 2-6. Coach Atwood moved in
and altered Rentschler's strategy from a
power game to a push game. The Phila-
delphia native adapted to the changes and
swept the next two sets 6-1, 6-2.
In her Michigan varsity debut Crosby
was an easy 6-2, 6-4 sixth singles winner.
Ohio State is next on the Wolverine
schedule. They play in Columbus Saturday.
Ohio State is ' the dominant factor in the
Big Ten and scare Atwood. "I think we're
going to have trouble. We shouldn't have
had such a close meet against Central,"
he said.

YOUTH, EXPERIENCE MIX:
Dekers skate

forward

By LESLIE BROWN
For most head coaches a loss
of nine experienced starters
could pose quite a dilemma. But
not always, according to Michi-
gan's hockey coach Dan Farrell.
Farrell stated, "This year's
team will be very competitive,
and given time to get together,
could be better than last year's,"
who posted a 22-20 record.
REASONS for such optimism
lie in the fact that, "these guys
have the potential for improve-
ment during the season," ex-
plains Farrell.
"This was what hurt us last
year, the lack of improvement~
as the season progressed."

help fill the gaps left by last

ies Turner, Brennan and Pa-
cholzuk should see a lot of time.
In contrast to the less ex-
perienced defense, the forward
positions boast veteran status.
According to Farrell, "We're
in pretty good shape at center.
Also, the right wing spot is very
solid."
RETURNING at right wing is
this season's captain, senior
Kris Manery, who led the team
last year with 37 goals and 24
