This Week in Sports
Ahhh, the finals week of winter semester .. Quite an interesting
time of year, isn't it? At long last the weather brightens, yet at the
same time, all those little academic duties you've religiously put off
all year suddenly rear their ugly heads. Ugggh.
Well, if you think you've got a slate full of activities, consider the
schedule of the Michigan's spring athletic teams. In addition to gutting
it out in the libarary, Wolverines of all shapes and sizes have been
holding up the sports front as well this past week.
After splitting a pair of doubleheaders last weekend with
Wisconsin and Minnesota, the Wolverines carried their 2-2 Big Ten
record into Wednesday's home confrontation with Oakland, and
emerged on the upbeat with a 6-2, 18-1 pasting of the hapless Pioneers
under their belts.
The Blue nine rapped our 24 hits in the lopsided twinbill, upping
their season record to 8-8. Before resuming the Big Ten season,
Michigan will duel the Detroit Titans in a pair of games at Fisher
Stadium today and then it's off to Ypsilanti for a pair with Eastern
Michigan on Sunday. The Big Ten season will resume April 28thand
29th with a pair of weekend doubleheaders at Illinois and Purdue.
Wolverine first sacker Tim Miller highlighted the first Blue vic-
tory with a home run blast to rightfield, then followed up with four
straight singles in the second game. Rick Leach, Dale Mason and Dan
Cooperrider each chipped in with triples, while Vic Ray rapped out
two doubles in the barrage.
Junior southpaw Steve Howe (3-0) kept his perfect record intact,
while going the route in winning his the first game, and senior
righthander Steve Perry took the nightcap to square his slate at 2-2.
Coach Moby Benedict wasn't about to savor his club's rout of
Oakland, as final exams and the bad weather have saw to it that the
Wolverines still have a ways to go before they can consider themselves
shoeins to repeat as Big Ten titleists.
"We haven't improved to the degree we need to be a contender
yet," said Benedict. "I' d like to see us improve both on the mound
and in the field."
The Blue netters had only one meet to divert them from school
this week, yet they made the most of it, squashing Michigan State, 9-0,
in East Lansing. Michigan upped its record to 13-1 overall and 5-0 in
the Big Ten, and Mike Leach kept his undefeated record unblemished
in singles, while Jack Neinken and Pete Osler are also undefeated in
doubles action. The Wolverines next battle Northwestern today at 2:30
p.m. with once-beaten Wisconsin coming into town tomorrow for a 1
The early part of this week wasn't the greatest so far as Gloria
Soluk's softball contingent was concerned, as the Wolverines split a
pair with Jackson Community College on Monday and then were swept
by Central Michigan two days later.
Julie Zyjewski took the loss in the first game against Jackson 8-4,
while Theresa Gardocki picked up a victory in Michigan's 13-5 night-
cap win. Michigan's Diane Hatch was six for nine for the day at the
plate, including three triples, while Amy Ames made her presence
known by going five for eight in the twinbill.
Central Michigan proved ungracious hosts, handing the
Wolverines a 5-, 6-5 double setback, dropping Michigan's record to 10-
4 for the season.
First baseman Tammie Sanders had Michigan's only hit in the
opener, while catcher Sheryl Tominac went three for three, with two
rbis in the nightcap.
The women's tennis team plays host to Wisconsin Saturday at
3 p.m., while Red Simmons' women's track squad will be up in East
Lansing for the MSU invitational. As for the men, the golfers are in
Columbus this weekend for the Northern Intercollegiate champion-
ship, with the trackmen competing nearby in the Ohio State relays.
