The results for the Michigan tennis team were as bright as yesterday's
shining sun as the Wolverines darkened Indiana's skies, defeating them 7-2.
The victory marked the end of the Wolverines dual meet season and they
finished with a 9-0 conference record and a 19-2 overall record.

MICHIGAN'S JEFF ETTERBEEK, shown finishing through on a hard
forehand, capped off four successful years of tennis at the Wolverines'
varsity courts by whipping Indiana's Randy Druz, 6-3, 6-1, yesterday. Mich-
igan won the match, 7-2.

hard coming back from a big match (a 7-2 win over OSU on Sunday) and play
as well as we did," said coach Brian Eisner.
The match featured the final match appearance of senior captain Jeff
Etterbeek. At the number one singles spot Etterbeek easily defeated In-
diana's Randy Druz, 6-3,. 6-1. Michigan's captain jumped to an early 4-0 lead
in the first set, but Druz fought back to pull the match to within one game, 4-
At that point in the match Etterbeek momentarily sat down to pull his
game together and he certainly did, as he won the next eight out of nine
games and the match.
"I'm a little disappointed with my performance for the most part of this
year. I'm playing much better this weekend and I feel I've peaked at a good
time with the Big Ten Tournament next weekend," said Etterbeek.
"We did very well at the first three singles positions," said coach Eisner.
Matt Hortwitch and Michael Leach followed Etterbeek's example and each
posted easy victories at the number two and three singles positions respec-
Hortwitch defeated Jeff True 6-2, 6-3 and Leach upended Mike Dickinson
6-0, 6-3.
The remainder of the singles matches were a different story. Fourth
singles player Jud Shaufler was the only netter able to turn his match around
and salvage a 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 victory. Shaufler's opponent, Tom Rogers, won the
first set and was leading the second set 3-2 before Shaufler buckled down and
won the next four games.
Jack Neinken, playing fifth singles for Peter Osler who was sidelined
with tonsilitis, was unable to net a victory for coach Eisner. After losing the
first set, 6-4, to Tom Lockhart he surged back to win the second set 6-4. In the
deciding set it looked as if Neinken was going to fall prey to Lockhart. He
was down 5-3, but consistant play and perserverance brought Neinken into a
5-5 tie with Lockhart. Neinken then broke service to take a 6-5 lead. He was
serving for the match with the score tied at 3-3, but Lockhart broke his ser-
vice and the match went into a nine point tie-breaker.
With Neinken leading 4-2 he had three serves to win the match, but
Lockhart was just too calm under pressure and he won the last three points
and the match, 7-6. The sixth singles player, Ihor Debryn, split sets 6-1, 6-3
before losing the final set 6.4 to Mark Behr.
Michigan led the match 4-2 going into the doubles competition. About
this time the wind picked up and made play quite difficult, but the team of
Etterbeek and Hortwitch were able to snag a 5-7, 6-3, 6-3 win over Indiana's
Druz and Dickinson.
The second doubles team of Leach and Shaufler defeated True and
Rogers 7-6, 6-4. Neinken and Debryn ended the match with a hard fought7-6,
6-7, 6-2 victory over Lockhart and Ron Remak.
