Netters face lineup
By PHIL NUSSEL
Last year, during many of Michigan's
home tennis matches, a tall, skinny
high-school kid was often seen hanging
around Liberty Tennis Club. Sometimes
he would even hit on the courts farther
down the line while the matches were
still going on. He was always in the

now a Wolverine freshman, is the

season in Champaign against the

"We're very fortunate in that
Jonathan Morris is going to join us on
this trip," said veteran head coach
Brian Eisner. "We really need him in
the lineup. Now the big question is
where to put him in the lineup."
Before Morris was sidelined with
tendonitis in both knees he was set to
play second singles. Now the Ann Arbor
native could be there or at any of the
lower positions. He may just play

some players that are mature enough
to realize this rather than feeling they
have to be in a certain position."
Two players who aretsure to be
playing somewhere in the top four
positions (depending on Morris' status)
are sophomore John Royer and fresh-
man Brad Koontz.
Royer, out of Columbus, performed
excellently at third singles last year,
defeating Big Ten powers Matt Grace
of conference champion Minnesota and
Martin Hampe of Northwestern.
KOONTZ HAS been a steadily-
improving player all year long. He was
the only Wolverine to win two singles
matches at Rice last weekend.
Transfer Ed Filer has also been
moving up in the Wolverine lineup. He

Besides Koontz and Morris, two other
freshmen may play quite a bit this week
and probably all season - Franz
Geiger and John Solik. In addition,
transfer Jed Hakken, another Ann Ar-
bor native, could see action. He has
been slumping in singles but has been
tough in doubles.
THE BIG TEN should be a tight
struggle this year. Minnesota,
Michigan, Illionois and Wisconsin have
the best chances to take the title accor-
ding to Wisconsin head coach Pat
Eisner analyzed the race, saying,
"What's happened in the last three or
four years is that the teams have gotten
closer and closer together in ability.
There isn't the weakness in the division
of teams as there was years ago."
Michigan's match today could tell
quite a bit about who will be on top of
the Big Ten in May. The Illini, who won
the regular season title last year but
lost to Minnesota in the tournament,
have a very young and talented team.
They have three freshmen in their top
six and one sophomore. Peter Boutan
and John Losito return from the 1984
squad's starting lineup.
