Softballers split with Hoosiers

By SCOTT SHAFFER
Indiana's Amy Unterbrink fired a no-
hitter to give the Hoosiers a split of
their doubleheader with the
Wolverines. The Wolverines won the
opener 8-2, but their bats went silent in
the nightcap as Unterbrink pitched IU
to a 10-0 victory.
The split leaves the Wolverines atop
the Big Ten by percentage points. They
are now 4-2 in conference play, while
Indiana continues to breathe down their
neck with a 5-3 mark.
UNTERBRINK WAS simply over-
powering on the way to her ninth win of
the season. Only three balls were hit out
of the infield, all three of them fly outs
to centerfielder Karleen Moore. The
only thing close to a hit came in the
final inning when Moore made a run-
ning, back-to-the-plate catch off the bat
of Mena Reyman to save the no-hitter.
At one point, Unterbrink struck out
five consecutive Michigan batters. She
fanned a total of nine overall. Unter-
brink, who said that she has already
thrown three no-hitters this year, began
thinking about her fourth while she was
warming up for the fifth inning.
She had the luxury of being able to
concentrate on the no-hitter because
the visiting Hoosiers blew out the
Wolverines early. Six Wolverine errors
in the first three innings allowed IU to
jump out to a 9-0 lead, although only one

of the runs was earned.
THE FIRST four Indiana hitters of
the game reached base via errors or
walks. The big hit of the inning was a
two-run scoring double into the left field
gap by Tammy Conner. In the second
frame, IU once again used a combin-
ation of bases on balls, Michigan
errors, and one timely hit to score
another three runs.
The second place Hoosiers scored yet
another three runs in the third with

aggressive base running and the help of
a passed ball and two errors. They ad-
ded an insurance run in the fifth on the
third of four passed balls charged to
catcher Alicia Seegert.
Michigan's head softball coach was
understandably annoyed with her
club's performance. "We gave them
the game. Our mistakes gave them the
momentum and we folded," Carol
Hutchins remarked.
AS FOR THE team's hitting in the
second game, Hutchings said that the
early deficit caused the Wolverine hit-
ters to swing for the fences instead of
just trying to make contact. "In the
second game, our hitters lacked
discipline. They have to lay off the high
fastball and just try to meet the ball."
Although the second game seemed
like a nightmare to the Wolverine faith-
ful, they had plenty to cheer about in
game one. Shortstop Lisa Panetta had a
perfect day at the plate, (4-4), and Vicki
Morrow pitched a strong game in a con-
test that made the second game seem
like a complete role-reversal.
This time Michigan took the early
lead by scoring four runs in a premier
stanza. Panetta opened the game with a
base hit, was sacrificed to second, and
scored on a single by Reyman. A walk
loaded the bases and Mari Foster,
playing with a ruptured ear drum,
singled home the second run.

MARTHA ROGERS drew a bases
loaded walk and Linda Allen droven in
the fourth run of the inning with a base
hit off losing pitcher Deanne Hacker.
In the second, Panetta once again
started things off with a single. Two at-
tempts at sacrifice bunts resulted in
one run and no outs before Foster
delivered her second run scoring hit in
as many innings.
Indiana got its two runs on RBI
doubles by Caroline Berger in the first
and third innings but Michigan silenced
any thoughts of an IU comeback by
scoring two more runs in the sixth on a
bizarre play that featured a passed ball
and a throwing error by the Indiana
catcher. Those two runs completed the
scoring at 8-2.
Despite her team's decisive turn
around in the second game, Indiana's
coach, Gayle Blevins was not pleased
with the split. "We have to avoid the up
and down performances. We gave them
too many opportunities in the first
game."
"We'll need to be more intense for
tomorrow's doubleheader,' she said af-
ter yesterday's action.
The split means that either team can
come out of today's twinbill with a
definite edge in the standings provided
that they can sweep. For Michigan, that
means they will have to defeat Unter-
brink, who is scheduled to pitch again.

Tulane AD quits under pressure

NEW ORLEANS (AP)-Hindman
Wall, the athletic director at Tulane.
University, resigned yesterday, saying
hew was physically and emotionally
exhausted by two years of controversy
plus recent allegations of basketball
point shaving and NCAA violations.
The resignation is effective June 30. .
"THE COMBINATION of the last
several years has just taken a toll of
me, fellows," Wall said. "It has been
cFoning on for quite a while."
President Eamon Kelly said he ac-
.cepted Wall's resignation "with deep
appreciation for his loyalty to Tulane
and for his many years of dedicated
service in its behalf."
Kelly said a search for a new athletic
director would begin immediately.
WALL WOULD not say his decision to
quit was brought on specifically by the
ppint shaving and recruiting scandals,
which resulted in a recommenation to
end men's basketball.
He said they were just his most
receht problems.
Wall would not specify what other

Michigan sophomore Vicki Morrow bunts the ball down the third baseline
during the first game of yesterday's ,doubleheader against Indiana. The
Wolverines split the contest and Morrow picked up the win in the first game
to extend her record to 7-1. Morrow, a 1984 second team All-Big Ten selec-
tioin, also led Michigan in strikeouts last year with 84. The Wolverines
record now stands at 12-10, 4-2 in the conference.

problems caused him to resign, but he
had been engaged in a two-year battle
with former football coach Wally
English. That controversy caught
national.attention before English was
fired last winter. Wall's problems with
English included a well-publicized
court fight over the eligibility of the
coach's son, Jon, who played in seven
games under a series of court injun-
ctions. The injunctions kept Tulane and
Wall from enforcing the NCAA transfer
rule.
THE CURRENT point-shaving scan-
dal has resulted in the indictment of
three Tulane basketball players and
five others on allegations of sports,
bribery. I
Basketball Coach Ned Fowler and

two assistants resigned last week.
Kelly, who wants the basketball
program dropped said Fowler admitted
making payments to at least one player
in violation of NCAA rules.
Kelly said the school's investigation
into possible NCAA infractions has tur-
ned up no evidence that Wall was in-
volved in any wrongdoing.
Bob Weiner, one of Tulane's financial
backers, said, "This is a sad day for
Tulane. In my opinion Hindman is the
best athletic director in America.
"He's accomplished more since he's
been here than any athletic director
since Tulane's been here," he said.
Wall said he had no immediate plans.
"I'm looking for a job." he said.

title

Special to the Daily
HUNTINGTON, W. Va. - After two rounds of the Marshall Invitational Golf
tournament, the Wolverines are in eighth place, with 606 points.
Dan Roberts, Michigan's senior co-captain, enters today's final round in fifth
place at even par 144 (73, 71). Roberts fights a close battle for the top position sin-
ce he is only two strokes out of the lead.
MICHIGAN coach Jim Carras said that Roberts is now beginning to peak in the
season. "Danny Roberts is starting to come into his own now. This is just our third
meet of the season and he's almost on top of his game," Carras said. "He should
have a solid shot at medalist honors going into the final round."
Michigan's "Chris Westfall shot 74 and 79 in yesterday's first two rounds while
teammate Scott Chipokas followed with a score of 79 and 74. The Wolverines fin-
ished the day with Peter Savarino at 77, 79 and Ken Clark shooting 80, 81.
Although the Wolverines are in eighth place, they still have a good shot at cat-
ching the leaders (Ohio State with 574, and Western Kentucky with 598 points) ac-
cording to Carras.
"Even though we had a couple of off scores, we're still just six strokes out-of
third and the guys are excited about that," said Carras. "With a few good perfor-
mances tomorrow, we'll be gunning for a top three finish."
