UCLA CINCHES TEAM TITLE

De Jes s qualifies for semi's

Special To The DOllW
CORPUS CHRISTI, Tex.
- "The tennis Freddie
played today was the finest
played by anybody in the
tournament. He literally
did not make a mistake -
it was letter perfect ten-
nis," said Michigan tennis
coach Brian Eisner of jun-
ior Fred DeJesus.
DeJesus, Michigan's re-
maining singles p 1 a y e r,
seeded 12th, barely gave
Houston's Dale Ogden a
hello before destroying him,
6-0, 7-6 to smash his way
into today's semifinals of
this year's NCAA tennis
championships, at hot and
windy Corpus Christi.
The doubles team of Eric
Friedler and Jerry Karzen,
seeded 7th, also advanced to
this afternoon's semi-finals by
stopping fourteenth - seeded
Hank Pfister and Bob Hansen
7-5, 6-3 in the fourth round, and
Jan Bortner and Miguel Maur-
tua of Penn St. 6-4, 4-6, 6-1 in
the quarter-finals.
Michigan's first - seeded dou-

bles team of Victor Amaya and
Fred DeJesus suffered their
first defeat of the season at the
hands of Texas' Stewart Keller
and Gonzalo Nunez 6-4, 2-6, 7-5
to be eliminated from competi-
tion.
Michigan is currently tied for
fourth with 17 points, and can
gain a possible total of 21
shontd the Wolverines capture
both the singles and doubles
ti'les. This afternoon, UCLA un-
officially clinched the team
ch-mnionship by boosting their
noint total to 24, and could pos-
cOhl finish with 28.
"This is the first time Michi-
gan has ever placed in either
the singles or doubles in the
NCAA semi's or finals since '57
when Michigan won the NC-
AA's," said an elated Eisner.
That was the year that Barry
McKay and Dick Potter led the
Wolverines to their only cham-
nionship.
This year's title is now lost
but Michigan could score a
real coup against the Bruins
if the Wolverines were to take
both the singles and doubles
championships which, in
themselves, will be no easy
chore.

Today DeJsus goes against
two-time All-American George
Hardie of Southern Methodist,
the tournament's 11th seed.
Hardie possesses, according to
Eisner, "a solid all-around
game,' to go with his 6-2 frame.
Hardie beat Amaya easily 6-4,
6-3 back on February 15, and
to beat him, DeJesus will have
to use everything he has in his
bag of tricks.
The way DeJesus played yes-
terday though, he could find
himself in Saturday's finals. Og-
den had eliminated defending
NCAA champ John Whitlinger
the day before, but really wasn't
in the match with the quick De-
Jesus. He'll play today's semi-
final at 12 noon, perhaps the
hottest part of the day and the
contest may be one of physical
endurance.
Should DeJesus win, his task
will be even harder on Satur-
day. The other bracket is an
all-Los Angeles semifinalrwhere
ton - seeded Billy Martin of
UCLA meets Pepperdine's Joao
Soares.
Martin stayed alive by oust-
ing Trinity's Bill Matyastik,
6-4, 6-4, while Soares met
Trinity's other player Bill

Scanlon and bested him 6-7,
6-3, 6-0. Soares already has
Eric Friedler and Ohio State's
Francisco Gonzalez on his list
of victims.
"I've never seen Eric return
as well as he did today," said
an amazed Eisner of the Michi-
gan junior's play. Friedler was
spectacular in doubles play yes-
terday making, in Eisner's es-
timation, at least 15-20 place-
ments of the ball on service re-
turn. His opponents were not
able to even get a racket on
his careful volleys.
Against Bortner and Maur-
tua of Penn St. they were devas-
tating even though the Nittany
Lions had just come off of a
7-6, 5-7, 6-4 upset of second-
seeded and defending NCAA
doubles champions, John Whit-
linger and Jim Delaney.
Tomorrow Friedler and Kar-
zen face the awesome pair of
Billy Martin and Brian Teacher
from UCLA - the tourney's No.
1 and No. 3 singles seeds re-
spectively.
Assuming Michigan's duo
wins today's match, they
would face the winner of the
Butch Walts - Bruce Manson
(USC) and Alvaro Fillol-John

Eagleton (Miami, Fla.) semi-
final,
Ironically, it was Waits and
Manson who beat the Keller-
Nunez duo that earlier ousted
Michigan's Amaya and DeJesus.
In that Wolverine defeat, it
was all tied up at a set apiece
with the Longhorns leading 6-5
in the final set. Deuced at 30-30
with the Wolverines trying to
hold serve, Amay attempted to
get out of the way of an out-
going return but the ball acci-
deutly hit his racket putting
Texas ahead 40-30. The long-
horns took the next point and
the match.
The Maize and Blue has a
shot at second place but they
need to win both the doubles
and singles titles and need help
to do it. UCLA is out of reach,
but Miami, with 20 points, has
only their doubles team re-
maining.Trinity finished with
a total of 19. Stanford also has
17 points but has no players
left, while SMU in sixth place
with 16 points has only Hardie.
San Jose State has 15, Housto
14, Pepperdine 14, Southlern
Cal 13, and Texas 11.
Starting with today's action
all matches will be the best of
five sets.

ARNIE PALMER uses his driver one of the 11 times he grabbed it from his bag yesterday at Medinah Golf Club in the U.S. Open's
first round. Palmer shot a 69 on the rain soaked course. Palmer's only two bogey's came because of the atrociously wet and shaggy
rough. He flew one shot and miss-hit a chip to card the pair of bogeys. Palmer is two shots back of Tom Watson and Pat Fitz-
simons-both shot 67s.
