MSU grabs tourney lead-
By CUB SCHWARTZ
Nearly 50 players from eight Michigan colleges
and universities converged on Ann Arbor yester-
day for the State of Michigan Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (SMAIAW).-
Tennis Tournament, and when the opening rounds
hhd been completed, it was Michigan State which
held the surprise lead.
The Spartans received a bIg lift at the expense
of Michigan yesterday when unseeded Jody Ross,
defeated the Wolverines' Kathy Karzen, 6-2, 1-6,
Karzen was the tournament's number one seed
and had easily defeated Cindy Gurman of Western
Michigan in the first round, 6-1, 6-0. Ross' serve
and volley game, however, proved too much for
the Wolverine ace.
"It was the most significant match of the day,"
;aid Michigan coach John Atwood. "We were de-
pending on Kathy a lot for points. Now Michigan
State is in a real good position to win the tourna-
BEFORE PLAY began Michigan was regarded
a the team to beat with the runner-up seen as
itchigan State or possibly Central Michigan.
Ross played super tennis," said Atwood. "I
nt think she made any errors in the first set
d very few in the third."
Kathy's footwork was very slow and the wind
didn't help that."
"I didn't expect to win," said an elated Ross,.'
"but I figured I had nothing to lose. I just went
o'it and played and I won."
ROSS ATTRIBUTED the win to her strong serve
and volley game.
Michigan did pick up a number of victories in
other singles and doubles action, and finds itself
with Barb Selden and Ann Kercher still alive
going into today's quarterfinal action. Karzen
and Selden also advanced to the quarterfinals of
today's doubles competition.
Selden disposed of Michigan State's Marjorie
Kruger, 6-4, 6-4 in the first round of play, fhen
demolished Jane Shultze of Western Michigan
6-1, 6-2, in finding her way to the quarterfinals.
Selden is the number three seed in the tourna-
KERCHER BREEZED through her opening
round matches, bombing Cook of Michigan Tech
6-0, 6-1 and Wetnight of Western Michigan 6-2, 6-0.
Michigan's only other singles player, Debbie
Rentschler, won her opening match 6-0, 6-0, only
to lose to second seed Debbie Mascarin of Mich-
igan State 6-2, 6-1.
