WOL VERINES BEA T MS U, 7-2
Women netters win fifth straight

By STEVE HUNTER
"You guys just flat outplayed us."
That was how the Michigan State
women's tennis coach, Earl Rutz,
characterized Michigan's 7-2 victory
yesterday. Despite his team's five-
match winning streak, Michigan :head
coach Ollie Owens was surprised at the
outcome.
"I can't believe it. We're missing
(Paula) Reichert and (Marian)
Kremer, so that's two out of our top
four, and by all rights this team (MSU)
is probably the fourth best in the lig
Ten."
DESPITE THE injuries, the
Wolverines fought to victory at second
singles with an ailing Stephanie Light-
voet, as well as third, fourth, and sixth
singles. The Wolverines also swept all
three doubles matches.

Lightvoet, who has been suffering
from inflamed ligaments, played the.
Spartan's Barb McLogan.
"She was good," Lightvoet said. "She
hit to my backhand a lot." Despite this
fact and the injury, Lightvoet managed
to win 7-5, 6-2.
NOT AS fortunate was number-one
singles player Mary Mactaggart. Mac-
taggart lost to State's Monty Gettys 6-4,
7-5. Mactaggart hit many winners
during the match but, in her words, not
enough.
"The only way I'd win the point was
to: come up to the net" the Port Huron
junior added. "I just got tentative and
tried to play.it safe."
At number four singles Karen Milc-
zarski was anything but tentative, win-
ning the first set 6-0. In the second set,
however, she lost 3-6. "I think I let up,"

she said. "Before I knew it the set was
over."
Milczarski was not at a loss for con-
fidence, however. "I thought that I was
a better player," she said, and proved
herself right by taking the third set 6-4.
MACTAGGART, paired with Light-
voet, got a chance for revenge in the
first-dobule match against the Spartans
Gettys and Jill Grinberg.
The match turned out to be a tough
one, with State sending up lob after lob.
According to Lightvoet, though "We
didn't mind hitting the overheads."
With the consistency exhibited by the
pair, there was no reason to mind
either, as many long rallies consisted of
nothing but lobs and smashes.
Mactaggart, who had played the MSU
tandem before, said "We knew that
would happen," and explained their

consistency by saying "We worked on
that (overheads) especially."
THE WORK paid off as the Wolveri-
ne pair pulled out a victory, 6-1, 6-3.
Many of the matches didn't come
easy, and Owens summed up the per-
formance by saying "We've got a team
with a lot of heart." He added,"you're
not supposed to be able to lose two out of
your top four players and still beat a
team this good this badly."
But with a five- game streak and
some surprising matches, people may
have to rethink what the Wolverine's
women's tennis team is supposed to do.

Softballers dominate doubleheader,
. humble EMU Huron 3-0, 4-1

-

Special to the Daily
YPSILANTI - The Michigan softball team got strong per-
formances from pitchers Jan Boyd and Sandy Taylor and
swept a doubleheader from Eastern Michigan 3-0 and 4-1
yesterday.
Boyd was the winning pitcher in the Wolverines' first game
shutout. She held the Hurons scoreless for 13 innings and
raised her record to 6-6. The Wolverines got three unearned
runs in the top of the 13th inning to break up the pitchers'
duel.
WITH ONE OUT shortstop Lisa Panetta reached first on an
error and moved to third on a two-base hit by Sandy Taylor.
Boyd then attempted a safety-squeeze bunt, and reached fir-
st, driving in Panetta and moving Taylor to third. Missy
Thomas then singled in Taylor, and Marcie Smith followed
with a single that plated Boyd, and the Wolverines had all the
runs they needed. Boyd breezed through the bottom of the
13th, striking out two Huron batters, the last to end the game.
Boyd struck out nine and walked only one in squaring her
record.

The nightcap was similar to the opener in that it was the
pitchers who stole the show. Michigan right hander Sandy
Taylor allowed the Hurons just one run on four hits in posting
her sixth victory against five defeats. Eastern Michigan got
on the board first, scoring their only run of the day in the
second inning. The Wolverines countered with single runs in
the second, fourth, fifth, and seventh innings to complete
their sweep.
In the second game Thomas was the hitting star, going
three for three and knocking in two runs, including the game
winner. Mena Reyman displayed her power by banging out a
double and a triple and scoring two runs. The Wolverines
made the most of their scoring opportunities as they scored
four runs on just seven hits.
Michigan raised its record to 15-12, while Eastern Michigan
fell to 7-8 on the year.
The Wolverine softballers will try for a repeat performan-
ce of yesterday's twin killing tomorrow and Sunday in two
doubleheaders against the Northwestern Wildcats. Game
time is 1:00 p.m. tomorrow and 11:00 a.m. on Sunday.

Exhibitors dust off

I

By Jennie Malloy
THIS WEEKEND, antique admirers
will invade Ann Arbor as they head
over to Crisler Arena for the Michigan
Antique Show and Sale. Even if you are
not an avid antique-collector, you are
bound to find something there with over
65 exhibitors selling everything from
furniture and clocks to bedwarmers
and dolls.
The antique dealers will set up their
wares along the circular concourse at
Crisler, creating an arrangement which
show manager Margaret Brusher
describes as, "an antique show in-the-
round." Enthusiastically, she adds that
"the public will see antiques here that
they won't normally get a chance to
see, as this is not a display of just
local antiques; the exhibitors are
coming here from across the nation."
Exhibitor Robert Skinner, owner of
Mad Hatter Antiques in Oshkosh,

Wisconsin, is coming to display a
unique collection of medical and scien-
tific instruments. He'll show you some
early dental and surgical equipment,
along with what he calls, "medical
quackery," - instruments which have
claims to cure anything from cancer to
warts, including constipation. Other
ancient items include an Azmith com-
pass, something 18th century ships used
to distinguish directions. In addition,
Mr. Skinner will exhibit some rare
early American clocks and rose
medallions.
Other antiques worth a peek include
an early painting of Michigan's Saint
Clair River, done by George Balthazar
Gardner. 18th century miniature por-
traits on ivory will fascinate even the
most unenthused patron, while rare
Pilgrim furniture from the 1600s will
captivate the rest of the crowd.
The Michigan Antiques Show and
Sale offers all these items and more. If
you would like to do something different
this weekend, this is the place to go. The

antiques
University's "M" Club will co-sponsor
the show, which.is in its ninth year. It
opens today and runs through Sun. Apr.
10th. Admission is $3.50 and the Athletic
Dept. will share in the proceeds. The
hours for today and Saturday are 11
a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
