The Michigan Daily Tuesday, March 22, 1983 Page 8

After a competitive round of regular season mini-soccer matches, the
competing teams are now heating up for the single elimination tournament.
This event will be the culmination of a grueling season and will decide, once
and for all, who the real mini-soccer champs will be.
With so much fame and fortune resting on this tournament, one would ex-
pect national coverage for the event. But to the shock of millions, no network
coverage is scheduled; the networks are claiming that there is more of a
demand for coverage of some basketball tournament. I think it is called the
NCAA championships or something. Whatever their excuse, it is just a
shame that more people won't be exposed to the skillful play of such for-
midable mini-soccer teams as the Photen Torpedoes and the Dense Paks.
MANY UP and coming stars of the soccer world will be showcased in next
week's tournament. It is rumored that retired pro soccer star Pele has his
roots in Michigan intramural mini-soccer. Who knows what stars of the
future will be strutting their stuff in the Sports Coliseum at the corner of Fif-
th and Hill streets this year.
So, if you want to see some fast action and to have the chance to view the
super stars of tomorrow, take time out to check out the action at the mini-
soccer single elimination tournament. For those teams that plan to par-
ticipate in the tournament, playoff instant scheduling starts Thursday, Mar-
ch 24, from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. in IMSB Main Lobby.
Here are some of the results from regular-season mini-soccer competition
as they have arrived into our Daily sports offices located around the world:

It will take more than seven inches of
snow to cool off the red-hot Michigan
baseball team.
The Wolverines returned to Ann Arctic
Sunday night, after winning 11 of 12
games, including 6-0 in the Rollins In-
vitational Tournament, in the more
friendly climes of central Florida. And
despite the weather that greeted him at
the airport, coach Bud Middaugh is
eager to get back to work to prepare for
the rest of the season.
"WE'LL START working our pit-
chers on Wednesday already," Mid-
daugh said. "We need a lot of work."
By "we," Middaugh means the pit-
chers. Aside from junior Dave Kopf, no
pitcher showed the consistency Mid-
daugh would like to see. The trouble has
been a familiar early season nemisis
for pitchers - control. In 92 innings,
Michigan pitchers walked 60 batters,
far too many if the Wolverines hope to
continue their winning ways. Junior
Gary Wayne and freshman Casey Close
especially had problems finding the
plate, as each hurler averaged more
than one walk per inning.
So how did Michigan win 11 out of 12
games, its best start in 74 years, with
shaky pitching? Easy. Great hitting.
"WE GAVE up a lot of runs," Mid-
daugh said, "but we scored a lot too."
And score they did. The Wolverines
averaged 7.4 runs in 12 games played,
including games of 13,13, and 10 runs.
They also banged out 41 extra base hits,
while hitting a crisp .319 as a team.
Chris Sabo, Ken Hayward, and Jeff

elcome
Jacobson, hitting in the 2-3-4 spots in the
lineup, did most of the damage. All
three were named to the all-tournament
team. Junior thirdbaseman Sabo
cracked six homers, while hitting .347.
Hayward hit .419 and knocked in 15
runs. Senior co-captain Jacobson ha4
18 RBIs to go with his .349 average.
ADDITIONALLY, the Wolverines
came from behind to win in four of the
11 wins, which, according to Middaugh
shows "they're winning caliber"
ballplayers.
But Middaugh cautioned against
overoptimism, adding that many of the
games were played against teams with
overworked pitching staffs.
"We played 12 games in nine days, as
did most of the teams we played," the
fourth-year skipper said. "The real test
will come when we play on a regular
schedule."
By that time Middaugh hopes veteran
pitchers Rich Stoll and Tim Karazim
will be in mid-season form. Though, he
has a 3-0 record, Stoll's ERA is a lofty
4.91. Middaugh said flatly that Stoll
."has not pitched well." And Middaugh'
termed Karazim's play as "incon-
sistent," despite three saves.
But if the pitching comes around and
the strong hitting continues the
Michigan jauggernaut could keep right
on winning. The Wolverines have a
week to get things in order before
resuming action. They play Grand
Valley in their home opener next
Tuesday, barring snowstorms or other
natural disasters, of course.

Special to the Daily
The Michigan softball team con-
tinued to roll as they swept two games
yesterday on their South Carolina trip,
4-2, and 13-0. The victories were the fif-
th and sixth without a loss on the
southern swing and left the softballers
with an 11-5 record for the season.
In the first game, Michigan squeaked
past Rutgers, 4-2, behind the pitching of
Sandy Taylor, who ran her won-loss
mark to 4-3. Carol Patrick contributed a
home run to the offensive attack.

THE WOLVERINES faced Drexel in
the second game and exploded for three
round-trippers in the first inning en
route to an abbreviated 13-0 win. The
game was cut short after four innings
because of the lopsided score and the
cold weather of Carolina.
The softball team continues its series
of games today against Ohio University
and will go up against South Carolina in
a doubleheader on Wednesday.

A double twist and double fly-away is an impressive move
to attempt off the still rings. Wolverine Rick Kaufmann, one
of the only collegiate athletes to throw it in competition, com-
pleted the trick but faltered on the landing at last weekend's
Chicagoland Invitational.
Such a difficult move is usually not part of his routine but
Kaufmann, ranked second in the region with 9.70 on rings,
used the meet as preparation for the NCAA Championships to
be held in early April.
Northern Illinois won the Chicago meet, and Iowa,
Louisiana State, and Indiana were also in attendance.
Michigan did not accumulate a substantial team score, sen-
ding only its top individuals. "It was just another little warm-
up for the nationals," said coach Newt Loken.
Mike McKee was one Wolverine who counted heavily on his
performance in Chicago. Ranked seventh in the region with
9.58 on floor, McKee needed a 9.6 to raise his ranking to sixth
in order to qualify for the national championships. Unfor-
tunately, he tumbled short with a 9.4 but he could still qualify
SPORTS OF THE DAILY

through the at-large selections made next week.
Meanwhile, Kevin McKee achieved a career high on the
weekend with an outstanding 9.85 on the floor exercise.
Ranked number one on floor in the Mideast region, he sports
a 9.2 average going into the nationals.
"We're very proud of having four blue shirts at the
NCAA's," said Loken, who will be retiring following the
NCAAs, after 36 years at Michigan. "We will have one of the
largest individual contingents competing."
Those individuals include Milan Stanovich, who averaged'
9.71 on the vault, good enough for fourth in the region. Also
making the trek to Penn State for the championships will be
parallel bar expert Dino Manus who notched a 9.48 average
to rank fourth despite problems with a shoulder injury.
"The shoulder appears to be well on the road to recovery;
said Loken, who knows top physical condition is a must again-
st the likes of Nebraska, UCLA and Oklahoma.
"We've been fortunate to be on the floor already with the
contenders," said Loken. "We're optimistic and are looking
forward to the meet with excitement and anticipation."

DETROIT (UPI) - Detroit South-
western's Antoine "The Judge"
Joubert has been judged "Mr. Basket-
ball" for 1983 by Michigan high school
basketball coaches, it was announced
yesterday.
Joubert, who has already announced
he will attend Michigan next fall, joins
Sam Vincent of Lansing Eastern and
Michigan State plus Robert Henderson
of Lansing Eastern and Michigan as
winners of the "Hal .Schram Mr.
Basketball" award.
"IT'S A TRIBUTE to a great player,"
said his coach, Perry Watson. "He's a
super person who happens to be a super
basketball player as well."
The 6-foot-5 do-everything Prospector
polled 576 points in the ballotting to
easily outdistance East Grand Rapids'
Garde Thompson, runnerup with 124
points. Darryl Johnson of Flint Central
was third with 95, Dan Majerle of
Traverse City fourth with 86 and Benton
Harbor's Quincy Turner fifth at 64.
Thompson and Turner will join
Joubert at Michigan next fall while

can do," said the player who has been
tagged "The Judge" because of his
ambition to be a lawyer. "Not five -
only one."
Tigers 10, Red Sox 8
WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (UPI)-Rick
Leach's two out RBI single in the ninth
sent the game into extra innings and
German Barranca singled in the tie-
breaking run in the 10th yesterday to
lift the Detroit Tigers to a 10-8
exhibition win over the Boston Red Sox.
The loss was the sixth straight for
Boston, 4-9, while Detroit improved to 9-
4.
Glenn Wilson doubled off loser Dave
Schoppee with one out in the 10th an
scored moments later when Barranca,
a non-roster infielder, singled down the
right field line. The second run came on
on Alan Trammell's infield out.
The Red Sox, who got homers from
Tony Armas and Carl Yastrzemski, led
8-7 entering the ninth, but Larry Her-
ndon opened the inning with an infield
hit. Pinch runner Barbo Garbey moved
to second on an infield out and scored
one out later when Leach drilled a 1-2
delivery to right center. Aurelio Lopez
pitched two hitless innings to earn the
win.
The Tigers took a 4-0 lead in third off
Bob Ojeda on an RBI single by Tram-
mell, a two-run single by Lance Parrish
and an RBI single by Mike Ivie.
