The chilly weather took the sting out of the bats, but
the pitching was hotter than blazes as the Michigan
softball squad split a pair of doubleheaders with Nor-
thwestern, played yesterday and Sunday at Elbel
Field.
A grand total of twelve runs were scored between
the two teams in the four-game series. All four games
were won by only one run.-
THE WOLVERINES, playing with several key per-
formers on the sidelines with injuries, dropped the
first game of Sunday's twinbill, 2-1, and Monday's
nightcap, 1-0. But in between, the team responded
with timely hitting and strong pitching in the clutch,
winning Sunday's second game 3-2, and yesterday's
opener, 2-1.
Michigan, now 17-14 on the season and 2-6 in the Big
Ten, received sterling pitching from seniors Jan
Boyd (7-7) and Sandy Taylor (7-6) in the series. Boyd
allowed three runs, only one earned, and 12 hits as
she pitched both openers. Taylor surrendered just
three runs on 11 hits in the second game of each
doubleheader.

"Our pitching? What can you say?," said Michigan
head coach Bob DeCarolis. "All in all, I think it (the
series) was pretty evenly matched."
IN THE SERIES' first game, a pair of errors on the
same play allowed both Northwestern runs to cross
the plate. The fifth inning miscues spoiled an other-
wise spotless pitching performance by Boyd.
The Wolverines came right back in the nightcap.
Jody Humphries' two-run opposite field triple in a
three-run third inning was enough to beat North-
western (14-5), despite an inside-the-park home run
by the Wildcats' Sue Koopman.
Boyd scattered nine hits in Monday's lidlifter and
held on until Michigan's bats came through for the
win. Carol Patrick singled in a fourth-inning run and
Marcie Smith drove home the winner for the
Wolverines.
IN YESTERDAY'S finale, a one-out bases-loaded
sacrifice fly by Northwestern's Karen Lemke was the
only run. Taylor took the loss despite giving up only
four hits.
In the two victories, Michigan was aided by
aggressive play from reserve infielder Mary
Bitkowski and junior catcher Missy Thomas, an out-

lit series
fielder converted to catcher to fill the void left by an
injury to freshman Leslie Bean.
Bitkowski was instrumental in the Sunday victory.
"You gotta give Mary Bitkowski a lot of credit," said
DeCarolis after Sunday's win. "She made some
things happen out there with the bat and with the
baserunning. I think she got us fired up a little bit."
IN MONDAY'S opener, Thomas threw out several
runners and recorded an unassisted double-play to
keep Michigan in the game. Then she stroked a two-
out single in the seventh inning, stole second, and
scampered home with the winning run on Smith's
single.'
"The injury situation has pulled us a little closer
together," said DeCaroliis. "Some of the kids are
playing harder - Mary Bitkowski, Missy Thomas. At
the beginning of the season we weren't counting on
these people and now they're coming through better
than our regulars."
The Wolverines play at Wayne State in a twinbill
today, then return home for another doubleheader
Wednesday at 3 p.m. against the University of
Detroit. Big Ten foe Indiana visits Ann Arbor for a
pair of doubleheaders this weekend.

The Michigan men's track team. How-
ever, for the first time in almost a mon-
th, the Wolverines found themselves up
against competition a bit stiffer than
such campus commonalities. The
tracksters went south to participate in
the Dogwood Relays in Knoxville,
Tenn., their first meet since mid-
March.
GERALD Donakowski, qualified for
the NCAA outdoor championships to be
held later this year in Houston, with a
time of 28:53:7 in the 10,000-meter run.
Donakowski became the second
Wolverine to qualify for the NCAA's,
joining Brian Diemer who qualified in
the 3,000-meter steeplechase ealier this
season._

"Donakowski turned in an excellent
performance against a stiff, com-
petitive field, and it was good to see him
qualify for the NCAA championships,"
said Michigan coach Jack Harvey.
"The competition was tough down here,
as people from the South have been
outdoors for the past several weeks and
are used to the transition from indoors.
This meet had some outstanding in-
dividual athletes competing in it, but
our guys hung in there tough for many
of the races."
In the high jump Dave Lugin tied for
second place in a field of 53 with a laun-
ch of 6'10".
FRESHMAN Chris Brewster placed
second in the open 5,000-meter run with
a time of 14:23.46. Long-distancers Jim
Schmidt, DAve Meyer, and Bill Brady
finished second, fourth and fifth respec-
tively in the open 10,000-meter run.
Johnny Nielsen produced his longest
toss of the year, 60'1", which was good
for second in the shot put. This is the
earliest in an outdoor season that
Nielsen has surpassed the 60-foot mark.
Junior Derek Harper captured fifth in
the long jump with a leap of 29'91".
The spring medley foursome of Todd
Steverson, Nick Pyle, Rob Grainger,
and Ron Simpson turned in a time of
3:21.5 to earn fourth place.
Michigan travels to East Lansing to
take part in the Michigan State In-
vitational on Saturday, April 16 at
1:00 p.m. The Wolverines expect their
main competition to come from the host
Spartans.
Foster makes NCAA's
The Dogwood Relays, held this past
weekend in Knoxville, were no dog for

Michigan's women's track team.
Several athletes had strong performan-
ces and coach Francie Goodridge was
duly pleased.
Senior Sue Frederick-Foster gave an
outstanding effort in Friday's 800-
meter run, finishing second in a field of
70 with a time of 2:07.6. The time was
good enough to qualify Foster for the
NCAA meet later this season and, as
Goodridge noted, "That was probably
the best she's run at this time of the
season."
ALTHOUGH IT IS early in the out-
door track season, the women are
already showing encouraging signs for
a fine year. Melanie Weaver also
qualified for the NCAA meet with a
9:22.3 time and seventh-place finish in
the 3,000 meters. "The middle-distance
and distance runners are where I hoped
they'd be better," said Goodridge.
Another of the talented middle-
distance runners is freshman Joyce
Wilson, who Goodridge already regards
as the second-best 800-meter runner in
Wolverine history, behind Foster.
Wilson raced to a fifth-place showing in
the event as well as gaining valuable
experience running against top com-
petitors such as Ohio State's Diane
Dixon and Jan Merrill.
"We were hoping she'd run a 2:10 or
better, and she did," stated Goodridge
about Wilson. "A lot of top quarter-
milers have moved up (to 800 meters).
They got lost in the pack but Joyce was
there."
WILSON WAS also "there" in the
mile relay as she, Kari Manns, Darlene
Fortman and Brenda Kazinec com-
bined to establish a new Michigan out-
door record. Their 3:48.1 time put them
in third place at Knoxville.

ogwoods
Training conditions in general have
not been good considering the poor
weather of late. If this has been a factor
in anyone's performance, it may have
affected the sprinters, who were slow at
the Relays. Goodridge does not foresee
problems, though, and explained that,
"March is a rough month on sprinters.
It's hard to make the transition from
indoor to outdoor."
*The team as a whole has made the
switch very well and will get an impor-
tant test when they host a meet April 23.
The field will include rival Michigan
State, which will offer the Wolverines a
nice tune-up for the next "big" meet -
the Penn Relays later this month.

The Columbus Dispatch, quoting an
unnamed NFL source, said in Monday's
editions that NFL officials apparently
would try to reach the decision before
the league's April 26 draft of college
players.
THE LEAGUE began investigating
Schlichter, former Ohio State Univer-
sity star, after the quarterback ran up
$389,000 in gambling debts. Four
Baltimore-area men were charged in
an indictment handed up last week by a
federal grand jury in Columbus,, and
Schlichter's lawyer said the player was
cooperating in the federal ins
vestigation.
The Dispatch reported that its NFL
source said he wasn't certain whether
Schlichter would be summoned to&
league headquarters in New York this
week for questioning.

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Seve
Ballesteros, bolstered by a birdie-eagle
start, took advantage of Tom Watson's
three-putt self-destruction and stalked
unchallenged to a four-stroke victory
yesterday in the day-late windup of the
47th Masters golf tournament.
Ballesteros, a 26-year-old Spaniard
who twice has declined credentials to
play on the American PGA Tour,
acquired his third title in golf's Big
Four events with a final round 69 and a
280 total, eight strokes under par on the

course.
BALLASTEROS, winner of the 1979
British Open and the 1980 Masters, took
command immediately on this warm,
windy day with an approach shot to six
feet for a first-hole birdie and followed
with a wood-club second shot to 10 feet
for an eagle-three on the long No. 2 hole.
That put him in front. And he was in
front to stay. His playing partner, Wat-
son, once got close with a long putt -
perhaps 35 to 40 feet - for an eagle on
the eighth. That halved Ballesteros'
lead to two strokes.
But Watson, twice a Masters winner
and the 1982 U.S. and British Open
champion, suddenly fell victim to
problems that were, for him, extremely
unusual. He calls the phenomena
"hammer-mitts." His putting touch,
among the best in golf, deserted him.
HE THREE-PUTTED three times in
a row.
And Ballesteros was home safe.
From that point on, it was simply a nice
stroll through the azaleas and dogwood,
magnolia and wisteria. He capped his
round on the 18th hole with a par-saving
chip from the fringe of the green.
"Ballesteros got off to such a good
start, he kind of put a damper on
everyone's spirits," said Tom Kite, who
birdied the last two holes. Kite, who
has yet to win the Masters, now has
