up slot in three others. Only at
number six singles did the Wol-
verines fail to garner either
first or second.

ber one doubles champs. Ott
combined with Jeff Miller to
take the number three competi-
tion, beating Doug Sullivan and
Dan Richards of Indiana, 7-5,
With the doubles win, O t t
became the only player in the
Big Ten to go the entire season
and tournament without a loss in
either singles or doubles.
Wolverines were also runners-
up at three other flights. Ross,
who won the number one singles
title in 1971, was dethroned In
the finals by Jim Ebbitt of Min-
nesota, 6-2, 6-2. Ebbitt was the

tion this year.

Actually, the conference
championship was only partially
decided by the results of ihe
weekend tournament. The dual
meet season which the Wolver-
ines breezed through with a per-
fect 9-0 record, counted equally
with the tournament, and Mich-
igan had entered the tournament
with a 20 point lead.
Finishing behind Michigan and
Indiana in the final standings
were Iowa with 78 points, Illin-
ois 76 Wisconsin 67, Minnesota
60, Michigan State 43, Northwest-
ern 39, Ohio State 24, and Purdue
For Coach Brian Eisner is was
his third championship in as
many years at Michigan. T h e
Big Ten win leaves the Wolver-
ines with only the NCAA tourna-
ment at Georgia, June 12-47, left
on their schedule.
'M' rug gers
The highly rated Michigan
rugby club was tripped by un-
derdog Texas in the first round
of the National Collegiate Rugby
Tournament, but rebounded to
take consolation honors.
Although the Lonhorns were
outplayed the entire second half,
they squeezed out a 16-10 tri-
umph over the frustrated Michi-
gan ruggers. The Blue came back
to take consolation honors and
stay in the nation's top ten with
convincing 20-9 and 34-10 vic-
tories over Brown University and
Little known Palmer College
of Iowa copped the national
crown with a 26-17 decision over
an inspired Navy team.
After falling behind Texas in
the early going of the first half,
Michigan narrowed the score to
10-6 at the half. The crunching
running of Flint Larson knotted
the score at 10 all within the
first four minutes of the second

Even though the Michigan
Wolverines swept two double-
headers from Ohio State and
Indiana over the weekend, it
was the Iowa Hawkeyes who
took the spotlight in the Big
Ten as they captured a pair
from Northwestern, 6-1 and 10-
8 to win their first conference
championship in 33 years.
After blitzing the Buckeyes
7-0, 12-0 on Friday, the Wol-
verines hammered the Hoosiers
in Saturday's rainsoaked opener
10-0 behind the fine five hitter
by hurler Pete Helt. Then they
hung on to survive a strong In-
diana comeback to take the
night-cap 6-5. The wins vaulted
Michigan into a second place tie
with Michigan State with cor-
responding 7-3 records.
Today's Western Michigan
game starts at 2:00 pm in Fisher
In the opener, the Wolverines
needed but two innings and
eight base hits to score all their
In the second inning, Helt
helped his own cause with a
smash past the pitcher's box to
drive in John Hornyak and
Mark Crane to highlight the
three run barrage.
Then only two frames later,
Michigan erupted for seven tal-
lies that iced the victory for
Helt. The fatal blow, as far as
the Hoosiers were concerned,
was an inside-the-park grand
slam by rightfielder Mike De-
Cou that sailed over center-
fielder, Tom Lewis' head.
The pitching performance by
Helt (5-4), who walked only two
while striking out seven, gave
the Wolverines their fourth
straight shutout in Big Ten

Craig Forhan (5-0) seemed to

Consequently, pitcher Mickey
Elwood, who had blanked the
Buckeyes only the day before,
was called upon by Coach Moby
Benedict to put out the fire. He
managed to fan leftfielder Norn

up a single to Gary Ginn which
allowed Ken St. Pierre to score

ed the ball to bring Indiana
Forhan, who drove in the first
Michigan run with a second in-
ning single, extended the Wol-
verine shutout streak to 35-
innings before a walk, two wild
pitches and a single by Mike
Flanagan ended it.
