Gone is the timely hitting and steady

What does the Michigan baseball club
possess this season? A young and
spunky group, which will be showcased
for the first time today at the season
opening doubleheader against Grand
Walley, 1 p.m. at Fisher Stadium. But,
more importantly, the team has a new
energetic head coach in Bud Middaugh.
Middaugh, 39, comes to Michigan af-
ter an excellent career at Miami
(Ohio), where he compiled a 356-173
record for a .673 percentage. Some of
his accomplishments included three
Mid-American conference titles, three
MAC coach of the year awards and in
1977 when his team won 45 games, they
were the first MAC school to ever gain
an at-large berth in NCAA districts.
This season at Michigan, Middaugh
will be facing a challenge because the
heart of the Wolverines club was taken
away through the major league draft
last summer.
'"That's the main problem with for-
ming a team," said Middaugh. "You're
always battling the major league draft.
One week you may have a star and the
next week, he'll be in the majors."

"You know that when youlose quality
players like Leach, Howe and Perry,
it's going to take some time to build a
winning team, but I think it's going to
be fun."
The man that Middaugh will build
his team around will be senior George
Foussianes is the lone three-year let-
terman on this year's squad. The 6-1,
190-pounder has been a versatile player
during his Michigan career as he has
seen duty as a shortstop, first baseman
and a designated hitter. Last season, he
was the All-Big Ten shortstop and led
the league in hitting with a .452 average
beating teammate Leach for the title:
Foussianes had a .369 average for the
entire season, which also led the
"George is our main man. I won't
deny that and we're going to count
heavily on him. I expect him to be my
field leader out there," said Middaugh.
Other players that will be counted on
to have good seasons will be junior
Mark Clinton, who is the most ex-
perienced pitcher on the staff. He had a
5-3 record in 1979.
Junior catcher Jerry Hool, it is
hoped, will provide some needed power
hitting. He broke an ankle last year
against Wisconsin sliding into second
base, but seems to be fully recovered
going into the season.
Sophomore Jim Paciorek is probably

Special to the Daily
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Michigan men's swim team scored a team total of
23 points to place 13th in the NCAA National Championship at the end of the second
day of competition. Michigan's Fernando Canales earned twelfth place in the
200-meter freestyle event, with a time of 1:39:81. John Spaid, of Michigan, did not
qualify by placing 16th with a time of 1:38:80 in the same event.
The Michigan relay team in the 800-meter freestyle placed 12th with a time of
In the three-meter diving, Kevin Machemer placed second for the Wolverines
with a 251.20 total, while Ken Vihiletti scored 222.25 for tenth place.
California in first place had 168 points to 149 for second place. Texas, Florida,
the pre-meet favorite which held a 67-66 edge over California after the first day,
was third with 137. UCLA was fourth with 123, and Auburn followed with 102.
The meet at Harvard winds up with seven finals Saturday night.
Records fell in two other events. Rowdy Gaines of Auburn won the 200yard,
freestyle in 1:34.57. Andy Coan of Tennessee, who was eliminated in the prelims,
had set the previous American and NCAA record of 1:35.62 at last year's meet.
In the 100-yard breaststroke, Steve Lundquist of Southern Methodist broke his
own American record of 54.08 with a winning time of 53.59. Both he and Bill Barrett
of UCLA, who finished second in 54.14, shattered the NCAA Mark of 54.91 set in last
year's meet by California's Graham Smith.

Linebacker injured

Mike Czarnota, a sophomore inside
linebacker who was on the third team
last season, broke his right foot in prac-
tice Wednesday and will be out for at
ast five weeks.
"I broke it during a punt return drill
in practice," said Czarnota, adding that
he will miss all of spring practice, in-
cluding the Blue-White intrasquad
scrimmage next month. "It sure hurts
to miss spring practice, because that's
where the starting jobs are won,' he
Sophomore Sanford Washington will
step into the hole vacated by Czarnota.
Washington came to Michigan as a
*ighly-touted linebacker prospect with
great speed and range.
Junior wolfman Stuart Harris un-
derwent knee surgery earlier this week,
and will miss all of spring practice. The
Chagrin Falls, Ohio native, who made
34 total tackles and intercepted one
pass last season, is the only returning
member of Michigan's secondary.
Boston 130, Cleveland 122
BOSTON (AP)-Larry Bird scored
3 points and Rick Robey added 25 as
the Boston Celtics downed the
Cleveland Cavaliers 130-122, last night
to clinch the Atlantic Division title of
the National Basketball Association.
The victory insured the Celtics of the
best record in the league and gave them
a first-round bye into .the playoffs.
Boston had to survive a fourth-quarter
scare by the Cavs to earn the victory.
CLEVELAND, WHICH trailedby as
any as 13 points in the third quarter,
closed to 114-110 with a little more than
four minutes remaining. Boston ran off
a 10-2 spurt to put the game on ice.
The Celtics opened the game and
quickly moved to a 10-2 lead as Tiny.
Archibald hit on a jumper and a drive,
and Bird canned a three-point shot. The
Cavs, paced by Randy Smith's 11
points, managed to stay close at 34-28 at
the end of the first quarter.
The Celtics built a 69-61 advantage at
halftime, with Bird scoring 18.
IN THE THIRD quarter, . Robey,
substituting for the injured Dave
Cowens, dominated the inside and
scored 12 points to help Boston stretch

its margin to 99-87 going into the final
The Celtics made frequent use of
their fast break attack, with Archibald
ending up with 21 points. Cedric
Maxwell contributed 23.
The Cavaliers were led by Da.ve
Robisch with 12 points and Austin Carr
and Bill Willoughby, who each had 10.
The Boston victory total of 60
matched their number of wins for the
previous two years combined.
Washington 100, Atlania 80
LANDOVER, Md. (AP)-Elvin
Hayes scored 29 points, grabbed 16
rebounds and blocked eight shots last
night to pace the Washington Bullets to
a 100-80 victory over Atlanta.
The Bullets victory, following two
straight losses, kept their playoff hopes
alive. Washington now has a 36-43
record. Sixth-place New York finished
the season with a 39-43 mark.
If the Bullets beat the Nets Sunday
afternoon in New Jersey they will tie
New York and earn a playoff berth
because of a better record against
Eastern Conference opponents.
Kevin Grevey, who scored 24 points,
made three three-point baskets in the
first quarter to give the Bullets a lead
they never lost as they beat the Hawks
for the third straight time at the Capital
