Men and women
win track honors

Michigan track coach Jack Har-
vey was a double winner last
weekend. Harvey's team grabbed
first place in the Central Collegiate
Championships, while the Wolverine
mentor was honored as coach of the
meet in the two-day competition.
Michigan captured only two even-
ts at the meet held in South Bend,
but placed consistently high in the
other events to take the team title.
Mike Lattany,*who set a Big Ten
record in the high jump of 7-31/2 in
winning the conference title for a
second straight year two weeks ago,
paced the Wolverines with a first in
his specialty, while Michigan's 400-
meter relay also topped the 21 team
The defending. champion
Wolverines garnered 96 points in the
wind-hampered competition, while
Eastern Michigan finished second
with 88. Toledo was third with 80
points and Western Michigan
finished fourth.

The men weren't the only ones
earning themselves honors last
weekend. Debbie Williams,
Michigan's record-setting javelin
chucker, culminated a fine rookie
campaign for Red Simmons' track
squad last weekend with a ninth
place in the AIAW National Cham-
pionships in East Lansing.
WIlliams fired the spear 157 feet,
eight inches, setting a new Michigan
record and upping her personal best
in the event in the process. The
freshwoman field specialist's
previous high mark was a 154-11, set
earlier this season.
Accompanying Williams to the
AIAWs were discus thrower Penny
Neer and sprinter CAthy Sharpe,
each having qualified for the
Nationals in the regional com-
petition held at Terre Haute, Ind.,
May 11-12.
Both finished their seasons in the
qualifying rounds, with Neer
throwing the discus 144 feet and
Sharpe running a 12.4 in the 100
meter event against a strong wind.

MICHIGAN'S DEBBIE Williams is shown here putting the shot, but her real
speciality is the javelin in which she not only set a Big Ten record (154 -11"),
and a Midwest AIAW record (153-4 ), but also placed ninth in the Nationals
with a throw of 157 -8 , a personal best for the freshwoman from Euclid,


Michigan netter shines in NCAA's

Quarter-finals have been a jinx for
senior tennis captain Jeff Etterbeek.
After being upset in the quarter-finals
two weeks ago in the Big Ten cham-
pionships by OSU's Ernie Fernandez,
Etterbeek came roaring back in the
NCAA singles championship before
being edged by Warren Farrow of
Southern Illinois Edwardville, again in

Etterbeek was one of three Michigan

TORONTO (AP)-Lance Parrish
snapped an 8-8 tie with a run-scoring
single in the eighth inning following a
two-out intentional walk to Jason
Thompson to give the Detroit Tigersa
9-8 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays
last night.
Lou Whitaker opened the eighth with
a single off Tom Buskey, 1-1, and was
sacrificed to second. After Rusty Staub
flied out, Thompson was purposely
pased, but Parrish spoiled the strategy
with his game-winning hit.
The Tigers were ahead by three runs
in both the fifth and seventh innings
only to have the Blue Jays come back to
tie the score in their half of the same in-
nings. Each team had 13 hitsi.

were *Matt Horwitch and Michael
Leach, both of whom lost very close fir-
at round matchea.
The Wolverines' captain opened the
tournament withan easy 6-2, 6-2 win over
Duke's Kelley Porgis. Steve Denken, a
quarter-finalist in last year's NCAA
tourney, was Etterbeek's next victim
and as he was downed 6-4, 6-4.
He went on to defeat Pepperdine's
Eddie Edwards 6-0, 7-6. Edwards was a
semi-finalist in last year's NCAA tour-
nament. Farrow then ended Etter-

beek's fine career at Michigan by a 6-2,
6-2 score.
"This is the first time in the last four
years we were able to send someone to
the NCAA quarter-finals," said coach
Brian Eisner. "Jeff had an excellent
tournament this year," he added. Et-
terbeek was named to the All-American
team and leaves the Wolverines with
two Big Ten singles titles and one Big
Ten doubles title.
In the doubles competition Etterbeek
teamed with Horwitch to eliminate
duos from San Diego State and

Southern Illinois Carbondale. The
Michigan team then lost to the eventual
NCAA doubles champions, Erick Isker-
