Ne tters nip
By DEBBIE deFRANCES
The Women's Tennis team squeezed
by Eastern Michigan University to win
a close team match 5-4 yesterday at the
Track and Tennis Building. The
Wolverines, who shut out Calvin
College last week 9-0 to open their
spring season increased their overall
record to 3-1.
Michigan was even after the singles
competition, winning three matches
and losing three. The Wolverines were
paced by Junior Paula Reichert's easy
6-2, 6-1 victory in the top singles contest.
As a sophomore, Reichert was selected
to the All-Big Ten team and should be a
prime candidate again this year accor-
ding to rookie coach Bitsy Ritt.
OTHER singles victories include
Monica Borcherts at fourth singles with
a three-set win over EMU's Amy
Zeilinger 2-6, 6-1, 7-5, and sophomore
Tricia Horn's 6-3, 6-1 fifth position vic-
While the Wolverines scored im-
pressive victories among the upper
classmen singles players, the three
freshmen struggled in their singles' ef-
forts and all lost in their second spring
appearance. Coach Ritt, who comes to
Michigan after a two year stint as
assistant coach of Wisconsin, said the
freshmen's losses were due to inex-
perience and nerves.
"When they (the freshmen) start
playing with confidence then they'll
develop into good players," said Ritt,
who is often seen stepping out onto the
court to talk to her players. "I go over
and tell them what they need to do. I
have to get them psyched up." She en-
courages them by slapping her thigh in
imitation of Jimmy Connors, who
pounds his thigh with his palm when
he's pumped up.
WITH TWO victories in the three
doubles matches, the Wolverines
secured a team triumph by winning five
of nine individual contests. Paula
Reichert and freshman Leslie Mackey
teamed for first doubles and lost a long,
exciting three-set match 6-4, 6-7 (7-5 in
tie breaker) 7-5. Monica Borcierts and
Tricia Horn won second doubles 6-3, 7-6.
(8-6 in tiebreaker) while Tina Basle and
Erin Ashare coasted to a 6-2, 6-2 third
Early in the spring season, Michigan
is right where Ritt expected them to be.
"We went to Orlando (Florida) for
spring break and didn't get much com-
petition from Florida schools," said
Ritt referring to her team's one match
against Indian River. "But,we did get
the outside practice for four or five
hours a day; that helps a lot."
One unexpected player in Michigan's
top six is sophomore Tricia Horn, ac-
cording to Ritt. "Tricia is a pleasant
surprise. She's a nice girl and a hard
worker and it's paid off for her." Horn
won both her matches yesterday.
Looking to the future, Ritt thinks if
her team plays up to their potential,
they can finish third in the Big Ten, a
feat comparable to their last year's
finish. Ritt also said that top Big Ten
honors will probably go to Indiana and
Northwestern and third place is up for
grabs. "After' the first two teams, I
think anybody can beat anybody on any
given day," said Ritt.
