Thinclads run fat
It was a dreary weekend for Michigan's track teams. The men were up-
set in a dual meet with Indiana, 74-70, and the women were crushed in the
Big Tens, coming away with only ten points.
The men were competing without the services of long distance specialist
Bill Donakowski, long jumper James Henry and 880 champ Tim Thomas, but
even so they had plenty of what coach JackHarvey calls "quality perfor-
Among those was Randy Foss' shot put of 52'84", the 400 meter relay
time of :40.05 and Steve Elliott's time of 3:46.8 in the 1500 meter run
Greg Thomas took the 800 meter run with a time of 1:49.61, while James
Grace won the 200 meter dash in :21.1 and the 1600 meter relay squad came
through with a time of 3:08.24.
Michigan's Gary Hicks won the 110 hurdles in :14.36, and also won the
400 meter hurdles in.51.64 while Mike Lattany won the high jump with a
height of 7'1".
"We should have won that meet," commented Harvey. "We just had a
few let-downs in some performances."
Although the women placed in only three events, shining star Pam
Moore came through with :24.1 in the 200 meters, a time that gave her
second place and qualified her for the nationals. In addition, Abby Currier
placed fifth in the discus and Darlynda Key got seventh in the long jump.
The problem, according to coach Red Simmons, was this: "One key girl
(Roberta Brown) in the sprints and relay pulled a muscle and we had to put
in an inexperienced girl."
The problem, according to coach Red Simmons, was this: "One key girl

Brown pulled the muscle last Wednesday, but didn't think the injury
would prevent her from participating in the meet.

Netters sweep
The Michigan men's tennis team took sole possession of second place in
the Big Ten this weekend, as it defeated Ohio State, 6-3 on Friday and con-
tinued its hot playing Saturday, when it trounced Indiana, 8-1.
Leading the assault was Michigan's number one singles player, Jeff Et-
terbeek. Etterbeek was paired up against Indiana's Bill Rennie and beat the
Hoosier, 6-2, 6-0. Etterbeek and Rennie were the finalists at the number one
spot in last year's Big Ten championships.
"This was a great st p for Jeff," said Michigan coach Brian Eisner. "He
has really established himself now going into the Big Ten meet. He has by
far the best record of any player in this section of the country."
The Wolverines are now scheduled to play four matches over the next
eight days in Texas, where they will meet nationally-ranked teams.

Women get revenge
The Michigan women's tennis team went to College Station, Pennsyl-
vania this weekend to get in some practice for their upcoming SMAIAW
tournament this week in Ann Arbor.
Although the women were soundly defeated by highly ranked Princeton
(7-2), they beat a good Penn State team (6-3) and got revenge for previous
losses to the Ohio State squad that won the Big Ten championships two
weeks ago, defeating the Buckeyes decisively, 8-1.
"We played well this weekend and I think Bill (coach Flood) was proud
of us for the way we beat Ohio State," commented freshperson Kathy
Krickstein herself had a very good tournament as she won all of her
singles matches, including a tough win over Princeton's number two singles
player Linda Rice, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6.'Kathy Karzen and Ann Kercher were also
victorious in all three of their doubles matches.
"Most of the girls beat people at Ohio State that had beaten Michigan
players at earlier meets this season," Krickstein said. "The win should give
us better draws against Ohio State in the regional and prepare us better for
the qualifier next week."
"The team was real psyched up for this match," said Flood. "we showed
our real capability. We've now beaten all the top teams in the Big Ten in dual
meets (i.e. Ohio State, Northwestern and Wisconsin).
"It was an important win because a lot of the girls were doubting their
abilities after the Big Ten loss," Flood continued. "And even though Karzen
lost two of her three matches at first singles, she played very well as did the
rest of the team."
Karzen was the only member of the team to lose against OSU, as her
long-ime nemisis Maria Olazagasti beat her, 6-3, 6-3.
Michigan finished the tournament in second place, behind Princeton.
Big Ten champion Ohio State did not wina match.
"I loved beating Ohio State," Flood said. "It's great to kill them."
