Women's crew sails to victory

The women's crew club faced rough
sailing this weekend, when it traveled
to Kulver, Ind. for the Big Ten women's
"The weather was really bad," said
club secretary Beth Ingram, "so all ex-
cept two races were cancelled. Because
of the weather there was no team
championship, only individual

Despite the inclement weather, the
Wolverines managed to capture first
place in the women's open four. Team
members included Lisa Philipsborn,
Jaan Klinger, Kammy Kelly, Betsy
Leahy and Vicki Kornot. The novice
team was not as successful, placing
fourth out of five teams.
"We didn't do too bad," said Ingram,
"considering eight of the ten Big Ten

schools were there, and we are not con-
sidered as strong a team as Wisconsin
and Minnesota."
The lady rowers next race is Satur-
day at Gallup Park against Purdue and
Ohio State. This is the last race before
the Midwest Rowing Championships in
Madison, Wisconsin - one of the most
important regattas of the season.

more than a memory to most Michigan
students, the softball team will begin a
spring break in its playing schedule af-
ter today's doubleheader against
Michigan State.
The games are set to begin at 3:00 at
the Varsity Diamond, and are both
"must wins" for the Wolverines if they
are to remain in first place in the Big
Ten throughout their nine-day break.
THEY PRESENTLY lead Indiana by
percentage points following their
weekend split with the Hoosiers.

Michigan State comes to Ann Arbor
with a 6-13 record, but has not played
any Big Ten games this year. If the
Spartans upset the Wolverines twice
today, they would own first place.
Wolverine coach Carol Hutchins will

HUTCHINS IS making sure her team Friday, so the pitching staff's stamina
does not take the Spartans, a club that could come into play. Becksford's pit-
lost five of six last weekend lightly. "I cher is Diane Gentry (4-5, 1.55 ERA).

CONCERNED WITH the number of
strikeouts Indiana pitchers registered
against her squad, Hutchins is planning
a conservative strategy for today's con-
% tests.
"State doesn't have any over-
powering pitchers, so we should be able
to make good contact with the ball.
We'll just go for a couple of runs at a
time. If we put together two solid
/ games, we won't have to take chances
to win."
And if the team does play solidly
enough to sweep, Hutchins and her
squad will be able to enjoy nine days in
the Big Ten penthouse no matter what
Bolster miracles the Hoosiers or the Wildcats

With less than a month to play before
the Big Ten Championships, the men's
golf team is hoping two golfers will
emerge to round out the team's starting
Last weekend at the Marshall In-
vitational, the Wolverines finished
seventh in a fifteen-team field. Coach
Jim Carras was pleased with his team's
performance but felt its biggest
problem is depth. "I was happy with the
way we played. We were only three@
shots out of third place and only seven
shots out of second," said Carras. "The
tournament was so close that if we had
parred the last hole on the final day, we
could have taken sole possession of
third place.
toward the Big Tens is the play of our
last golfers. For the remainder of the
season we will play six golfers and the
highest five scores will count. We need
two top reserves to come through for us
because we can't always rely on our to"
four to play well."
The top four golfers led by team co-
captain Dan Roberts turned in solid ef-
forts at Marshall. Roberts was the run-
ner-up medalist with rounds of 73, 71
and 73 to Ohio State's Clark Burroughs
who took the individual title by five
"Roberts played the way I had hoped
he would. He is a strong college
player," said Carras. "He had a slo
start this spring because he has not had
much of a chance to play because of the
weather. He is now starting to score the
way he is capable of."
SCOTT CHIPOKAS shot 79, 74 and 74
for a total of 227 to record Michigan's
second best score. "Scott had only nine
bad holes the entire tournament," said
Carras. "He showed lots of maturity for
a first-year player, and I was very
pleased with his performance."
Peter Savarino's total of 228 was good
for third on the team. Carras felo
Savarino played reasonably well with
the exception of his 79 in the second
round of play, and thinks he has the
ability to improve. "Peter is capable of
shooting 75 or better every time out,"
said Carras.
Chris Westfall rounded out the
Wolverines top four with a score of 231.
"Chris is another player capable of
shooting 75 or better when he is playing
well," said Carras.
The Wolverines' next match will be
this weekend at DeKalb, Illinois to
compete in the Mid-American Con-
ference Tournament.
