and Montreal's Ken Dryden and kept
alive the Bruins' Stanley Cup playoff

This Week in Sports
Greetings. We're back and you're back. And while we were gone, the
Michigan spring sports teams continued their seasons. Here's a roundup of
what's been happening:
Women's Tennis
Sophomore Whit Stodghill captured first place in third singles to pace
the Michigan contingent to a third place finish in the, Big Ten tournament
last weekend at Iowa.
In the second doubles competition, Stodghill and her partner Kathy
Krickstein took the championship to give the Wolverines two titles.
Ohio State took top honors, with Indiana second and Michigan third.
Women's Track "
Field specialists Penny Neer and Debbie Williams paced the Wolverines
to a second-place finish in a quadrangular meet at Purdue. Neer collected 15
points, while winning the discus and the shot put events, while Williams ad-
ded 14 points in winning the javelin for the fourth straight week and placing
second in the discus and the shot.
Second place finishes for Michigan included Julie Clifford in the 1500
meter run and Dawn Woodruff in the 400 meter hurdles.
Men's Swimming
Michigan's retiring swim coach Gus Stager has named senior diver Matt
Chelich the team captain for the 1978-1979 season.
The move is unprecedented in Michigan swimming history, since
Chelich's position was made retroactive for the season just completed. It
also marks the first time Stager has named a captain since freestyler Larry
Day held the position in 1972-75.
"I talked it over with diving coach Dick Kimball and the new coach, Bill
Farley, and we felt it would be nice to bestow the honor on C'helich," said
Stager. "lie has given us some great performances at Michigan and we felt
he deserved to be named capation."
Chelich won the one and three-meter Big Ten diving championships and
captured the three-meter NCAA Diving Championship over Olympian Greg
Louganis while placing second in the NCAA one-meter event.
Men's Track
Junior Mike Lattany equalled his varsity outdoor record in the high jump
with a leap of 7-214 to win the Penn Relays in Philadelphia this past weekend.
Lattany, who finished.third in the NCAAs last year, is also the defending
Big Ten champion and is one of the favorites to repeat his outdoor title when
Michigan hosts the Big Ten Championships on May 18 and 19 at Ferry Field.
The Wolverines also placed third in the shuttle hurdle relay, with a time
of 57.8, while the sprint medley team took fourth. l)an lleikkinen took a four-
th in the :3,00 meter steeplechase with a run of 8:41.1, while freshman James
Ross won the college division long jump with a jump of 24-2.
"It was a good meet for us." said Coach Jack Harvey. "Every split in
each relay was improved and that was very satisf ying."
Michigan's 15 dual meet win streak came to an end last Saturday, when
the number two ranked Trinity contingent upended the 14th ranked
Men's Tennis
At number three singles, freshman Mike Leach lost his first match of the
season while the Peter Osler-Jack Neinken doubles combination was the
lone Wolverine winner at number three.
