LACROSSE
The Michigan Lacrosse Club had a busy week, competing against three
different clubs Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. They played host to
Albion on Wednesday and proceeded to trounce them 17-2. Player-coach
Rick Bays led the way with three goals, Bill Kalbfleish netted two goals and
assisted on five others.
Saturday, Notre Dame invaded Fuller Field and defeated the Wolverines
-8. Ed Anderson scored three goals and had one assist in the losing cause..
Matt Dawe chipped in with three assists, too. Goaltender Mike Keyes turned
in an awesome performance for Michigan, stopping twenty shots on goal.
On Sunday, Michigan had to rally from behind to defeat a stubborn
Columbus Lacrosse Club, 18-14, in Columbus. Paul Maturo, Al Clavell, Tom
Shields, and John Miller produced three goals apiece, while Dawe added to
his team leading scoring totals with two goals and two assists.
RUGBY
The Chicago Lions, the number one team in the midwest, were upset by the
Michigan Rugby Club, 10-7, last Saturday in Chicago. The match proved to
be very physical between Michigan's 'A' team and the Lions' 'A' team.
John Hartman and Wayne Bertrand both scored twice for the Wolverines
and Jack Good kicked the conversion. Everyone played well for Michigan,
coming out aggressive and refusing to let up.
VOLLEYBALL
The Michigan Volleyball Club traveled to Schoolcraft College this past
weekend to compete in the Canadian American Invitational. It proved to be a
frustrating weekend as Michigan returned to Ann Arbor with one victory in
eight games. The spikers could easily have escaped with seven victories and
one defeat since no loss was by more than three points.
WEIGHTLIFTING
Michigan freshman Steve Sporzynski placed sixth in the 165-pound weight
class in the United States Junior Weightlifting Championships. Sporzynski
lifted 203 pounds in the snatch and 248 pounds in the clean and jerk to earn his
position.
"I hoped to get my personal highs, and I figured that would place me in the
top five or six," Sporzynski said. Sporzynski tied his personal high mark in
the snatch, and bested his clean and jerk record by 12 pounds. He will next
compete in August when he travels to Colorado Springs for the National
Junior Olympics.
SAILING
Michigan's sailing team took 6th place in the Boston Dinghy Cup tour-
nament which was hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
(MIT) last weekend. 19 teams in all competed in the event.
Doug Wefer and Joanne Kure tied for third overall in the "A" division
while Scott Ferguson captained the "B" division entry along with Susan
Heinlen and Kris Meyer. .
The tournament is the second oldest intercollegiate sailing event.
The Club Sports Roundup relates briefly the activities of
Michigan's club sports teams during the previous week. This week's
information was compiled by Daily sports writers Alan Goldstein and
Chuck Jaffe.

NBC decision
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Officials of
the National Broadcasting Company
(NBC) expressed reservations about
televising lastsnight's NCAA champion-
ship basketball game because of the
assassination attempt on President
Reagan.
Dick Enberg, the NBC-TV play-by-
play announcer for the game, repor-
tedly said the network did not want the
game played.
AND ON-AIR personnel from NBC
said before the announcement that they
were reluctant to go on with the
telecast.
"What does a court jester do in a
situation like this?" asked Al McGuire,
who with Enberg and fellow color
commentator Billy Packer did the
game for the network.
"I think part of me is extra deep,"
McGuire continued. "I keep thinking of
this tough 70-year-old guy hanging in
there. I pr.efer not to go on, but I'll do
whatever producer Don Ohlmeyer
says.,,
NBC ANNOUNCER Bryant Gumbel
said: "I think among the NBC troops
there is considerable sentiment not to
do it (televise the game). Nobody can
sit here and pretend it didn't happen."
The decision came after the tour-
nament committee of the NCAA met
with North Carolina and Indiana of-
ficials following the consolation game
to decide whether the championship
game would be played.
The doubleheader at the Spectrum
started with the public address announ-
cer asking the audience to stand "in a
moment of silence for the recovery of
our President."
There were about 8,000 fans in the
18,000-seat arena at the time.
Luzinski sold to Chisox
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Greg
Luzinski, the Philadelphia Phillies'
veteran slugging outfielder, was sold to
the Chicago White Sox for an un-
disclosed amount of money yesterday,
the two clubs jointly announced.
The deal climaxed days of rumors
that Luzinski, 30, would be leaving the
Phillies, since the world champions
acquired outfielder Gary Matthews
from the Atlanta Braved in a trade last
Wednesday.
THE PHILLIES' first selection in the
June 1968 draft out of Notre Dame High
School in Niles, Ill., a suburb of
Chicago, Luzinski has been the Phillies
regular left fielder since the 1972
season.
In his nine-year career, Luzinski has
compiled a .281 average with 223 home
runs and 811 RBI. Four times, he
played in All Star games for the
National League, starting three times.
Luzinski had a .310 average for four
NL championship series with the
Phillies, but he was hitless in nine at-
bats in last year's World Series.
KNOWN AS "The Bull," Luzinski has

a strong start last season before going
in a slump at the end of June. In July,
he had surgery on his right knee, which
kept him out of uniform for 45 games.
He returned Aug. 24 from the disabled
list.
Luzinski, however, has been unhappy
with the way he has been handled by
Manager Dallas Green. He felt he
should have played more when he came
back from knee surgery, and said
recently that maybe it would be better
if he were traded.
Luzinski's home run total ranks four-
th on the Phillies all-time list behind
Chuck Klein, Del Ennis and leader
Mike Schmidt. His RBI total is sixth.
This spring, Luzinski was hitting .160
in eight games with three doubles and
two RBI.
Jackson out for two weeks
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.
(AP)-Slugger Reggie Jackson of the
New York Yankees has a partially torn
plantaris tendon and had his right leg
placed in a cast yesterday.
Jackson is expected to be sidelined a
minimum of two weeks and is doubtful
for the Yankees' season opening series
beginning April 9 against the Texas
Rangers.
THE INJURY began bothering
Jackson while he was runningin the
outfield before Monday's exhibition
ga against the Los Angeles Dodgers,
bu etraced it to a weekend series in
the New Orleans' Superdome.
"I think I hurt it in New Orleans," the
outfielder said. "I did too much running
on the artificial turf. When you get
older, you can't come to spring training
and play every day. But with the advent
of big salaries, there has been too much
emphasis on making stars play every
day in spring training."
Dr. Dan Kanell, the Yankees' spring
training physician, examined Jackson.
"WE'LL KNOW more when the cast
comes off, but it probably won't be too
much longer than two weeks," he said.
Lan dreaux traded
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)-The Min-
nesota Twins traded center fielder Ken
Landreaux to the Los Angeles Dodgers
yesterday for third baseman Mickey
Hatcher, first baseman Kelly Snider
and left-handed pitcher Matt Reeves.
Landreaux, 25, hit .281 last season
and had a 31-game hitting streak, the
longest in the major leagues. He came
to the Twins two seasons ago in the
trade which sent Rod Carew to the
California Angels.
