Sports sizzle and sink over

During the semester break
while Richard Nixon was putting
strange and dangerous objects in
Haiphong Harbor, Michigan
athletic teams were doing battle
on quieter plains. The results,
while not as dramatic or as dis-
astrous as Tricky Dick's, were
iixed, with some squads shining
brightly and others breaking
Since their 8-1 romp over arch-
rival Indiana on the last day of
winter classes, the Michigan
tennis team has extended its
Big Ten dominance with four
easy wins lifting its conference
mark to 8-0. The day after the
big win at Hossierville, the net-
men bombed Ohio State at
Columbus, 9-0.
The Wolverines then pro-
ceeded to take three more at
home. A 9-0 romp over Purdue
was sandwiched between 8-1
thrashings of Michigan State
and Illinois. In the latter two
meets, the Wolverines faltered
only at the number one doubles
Michigan also won three non-
league contests, sweeping South-
ern Illinois, Western Michigan,
and Kalamazoo. While the latter
two opponents fell easily (8-1
and 9-0, respectively), Southern
Illinois, the top tennis indepen-
dent in the Midwest, gave the
Wolverines their biggest scare
of the year.

The Salukis, decided under-
dogs, surprised Michigan by tak-
ing four of the six singles
-matches, including victories in
the number one, two, and three
singles. When they had Michi-
gan's Jerry Karzen and Kevin
Sennich well behind in the num-
ber two doubles it appeared the
the Wolverines were about to
suffer their first defeat at the
hands of a Midwestern team
this year.
But some clutch play by Kar-
zen as well as winning perfor-
mances by the other two Michi-
gan doubles combos pulled the
lead out with the doubles sweep,
The Michigan netmen are
heavily favored to sweep the
Northwestern Wildcast in Evan-
ston today, and from there they
will go directly on to Madison,
Wisconsin for the Big Ten tour-
nament this weekend.
Moby's men, fighting blizzards
in Minnesota as well as some-
times anemic bats compiled a
5-4 mark during the academic
respite, yesterday's 3-0 loss to
Western Michigan capping the
futilty of the Wolverines. That
record was achieved by splitting
series with Iowa, Eaterns Michi-
gan, and Michigan State, around
a sweep of the Fighting Irish of
Notre Dame at South Bend.
All Michigan losses during the
break were by shutouts, the

KALAMAZOO - Four Western
Michigan pitchers limited Mich-
igan to four hits yesterday and
shut out the Wolverines, 3-0.
The Bronco hurlers were Larry
Kulscar, Allen Wade, Tim May
and Mike Yesh.
At the plate, WMU was led by
shortstop Greg Geyer, who col-
lected three hits and scored his
team's first run after leading off
the third inning with a single.
Geyer tallied after a sacrifice,
walk and infield hit by outfield-
er Mike Squires. WMU scored
again in the same inning on a
bases-loaded walk to first base-
man Bruce Mierkowicz.
The final run was scored in
the seventh on singles by May,
Squires and catcher Tom Van-
It was WMU's 12th victory
against 14 losses this season.
Michigan is now 12-11.

Spartans sear Titans
State pitchers allowed just one
run on 13 hits, and catcher Ron
Pruitt socked two home runs
yesterday to lead the Spartans to
a 3-1 and 2-0 double-header
sweep of Detroit.
Elliott Moore took his sixth
victory without a defeat in the
opening game, giving up eight
hits and striking out six.
After Detroit jumped to a 1-0
lead in the top of the first,
Pruitt hit his first homer in the
bottom of the frame to tie the
score. The Spartans won it on
two runs in the fifth, the main
blows being singles by Rick Car-
row, John Rohde and Bailey
Rick Deller pitched a five-hit-

ter and struck out 12 batters in
the second game to post his first
shutout of the season.
MSU won it in the second on
a double by John Dace and a
single by RobinnDilday, and
Pruitt's sixth-inning home run
put the game on ice.
The Spartans are now 21-9-1
for the season, while the Titans
dropped to 11-11.
