THREE WOLVERINES POST SHUTOUTS
women netters leave Calvin cool
By PAUL DODD
After spending a week honing their
games in Florida over spring break, it
was back to indoor play for the
women's tennis team Tuesday. The
well-tanned netters burned Division
III foe Calvin College, 9-0, to make the
homecoming a happy one.
"Matches like this are confidence
builders for us," said coach Bitsy Ritt
upon completion of the massacre.
"It's just like the basketball team
playing Northern Michigan. Our
players can work on parts of their
game that they couldn't in normal
MICHIGAN upped its overall
record to 3-5 on the year while the
Knights fell to 0-2.
To anyone in the crowd of the 50 or
so people on the steel bleachers of the
Track and Tennis Building, it was
clear from the start which team would
dominate the match.
Senior Paula Reichert, in her usual
No. 1 singles spot, stood out on the
center court and simply blew away
the Knights' top gun, Sue Penning, 6-0,
6-0. Many of Reichert's baseline shots
were too hard for Penning to return.
LESLIE MACKEY continued her
solid play in the No. 3 spot, downing
Laurie Harmeling, 6-0, 6-3. The three
games Harmeling won were the most
of any Calvin player and equalled the
games won by the other five singles
It was the fifth win the last six
outings for the Grosse Pointe Farms
sophomore, who hadn't posted a win
all year before the MSU Invitational
"We need to start playing more
consistently as a team," Ritt said af-
ter her squad returned from Florida
wiith two wins in three matches. "Our
top three players are right at .500 for
the year, but our bottom three
(singles players) haven't done that
LIFE WAS even easier for Nos. 4
and 5 Tricia Horn and Monica Bor-
cherts as they cakewalked through
their two-set wins without losing a
game. Tina Basle played with a
nagging blister on her left wrist, but
still throttled Val Betten, 6-1, 6-0, in
just 35 minutes.
In doubles' play, it was more of the
same, as Michigan lost only six games
in sweeping the three matches.
Playing in the confines of the Track
and Tennis Building was a long way
from the sun, wind and occasional
rain of Florida, where the Wolverines
defeated Stetson and Indian River
Junior College after losing to Rollins
IN THE 8-1 loss to Rollins, all six
singles players were beaten,
although four of the matches went
three sets and Mackey was defeated in
'Matches like this are
for us ... it's just like
the basketball team
- Bitsy Ritt
a third-set tiebreaker. High winds and
a lack of experience playing outside
hampered the Michigan effort.
The victory at Indian River may not
show up on the Wolverines' overall
record, even though IRJC is one of the
top five junior college squads in the
nation, according to Ritt.
Horn was the only losing singles
player, going three sets before being
defeated. Ritt was not happy that two
of the three losses in the 6-3 triumph
came in doubles' competition.
"Sometimes our doubles' play is
good, and sometimes it's bad," Ritt
noted. "The same goes for singles. We
have to be more consistent top to bot-
Stetson picked up two wins in
singles and one doubles win while
falling to the Wolverine netters, 6-3. It
was a rude introduction to Division I,'
play for Stetson in its first year as a
Division IA team.
Denny McLain in trouble agam
ATLANTA (AP) - Denny McLain,
a two-time Cy Young Award winner
serving a 23-year prison term, was
ordered yesterday to spend 15 days in
isolation for having unauthorized
documents, according to a lawyer
representing inmates at the federal
McLain claimed he is being
punished because he is suspected of
leaking documents showing the prison
staff ordered pornographic
videotapes and because he has writ-
ten judges, senators and lawyers to
complain about poor conditions and
mismanagement at the prison.
McLAIN SPENT eight days in
"disciplinary segregation" before
Tuesday's meeting of the prison
disciplinary committee. The commit-
tee gave him 15 more days in isolation
and subtracted 10 days from the
"good time" he can accumulate
toward early release, said attorney
Prison officials acted against
McLain two days after The Atlanta
Journal and The Atlanta Constitution
reported that prison officials had or-
dered pornographic videotapes and
$700 worth of football tapes.
Warden Jack Hanberry canceled
the order and said he would take
disciplinary action against any em-
ployee who knew the nature of the
Leshaw was not allowed
to attend the disciplinary
meeting. He quoted a statement
McLain read at the meeting as
saying, "Someone...fraudulently or-
ders tapes and I become the
scapegoat for this administration.
The warden is embarrassed, but don't
take it out on me."
McLain was accused of having file
folders, an accounting book, purchase
orders, a budget for the prison kit-
chen, a list of equipment and instruc-
tions on filing a lawsuit, according to
Leshaw called it "a bunch of junk,"
much of which was found at a desk
used by many inmates.
McCLAIN's STATEMENT said in-
mates and officers have told him o
kickbacks and inmates performing
personal work for prison staff mem-
He said he has been told of "new
parts, working parts in motors, still
sealed in original boxes, all shipped
out of here as either garbage or
Prison spokesman William Noonan
said the allegations will be in-
vestigated if McLain makes them
through official channels.
McLain was convicted of extortion
drug dealing and racketeering.
He won 31 gaves as a pitcher for thO
1968 world champion Detroit Tigers
and captured the Cy Young Award in
1968 and 1969.

Wormen tankers nab fifth
By DEBBIE deFRANCES
A new paragraph will be added to
the Big Ten history book noting the
women's swim team's performance
March 1 in Schroeder, Wis. The
Wolverines did not win the conference
championships. They did not even
finish in second place.
THE FINISH not only won the
Wolverines a mention in conference
history, but was one that coach Jim
Richardson is pleased to have.
"We were pre-season ranked to
finish seventh in the Big Ten," said
Richardson. "Aside from Iowa who
was picked to finish third and tied for
second, we were the only other team
to. move up. "We almost took fourth
also. We were only 27 points out of
MICHIGAN'S FAILURE to finish
fourth could have been due to the flu.
The day before the Wolverines left for
Wisconsin, four of its 12 members
were sent to see the team doctor.
Richardson feels speculation into
"what could have been" is unnecessary
and is content with his team's per-
"I think we swam extremely well,"
Richardson said. "I think we did bet-
ter than we ever thought we would.
That's a tribute to the young ladies
STACY FRUTH and Christi Vedejs
shined in their events. Fruth won the
1,650-yard freestyle with a season best
time of 16:38.35 minutes. Vedejs took
the 200 yard breaststroke in 2:20.9 and
also recorded a season best. Vedejs
was one of only three swimmers to
defend their title. Vedejs and Fruth
also qualified for the NCAA cham-
pionships. Divers Bonnie Pankopf and
Lee Ann Grabovez had an outstanding
day in the one-meter diving com-
petition, placing second and third,
Richardson's main concern right
now is to keep Vedejs and Fruth in
good health for the NCAA's, March
"IF WE can just stay healthy then
we'll have some good opportunities to
place," Richardson said.
With his first season at the helm of
Michigan's women's swim program
tucked away, Richardson likes the
team's overall results and looks to a
future of a larger squad.
"This was supposed to be a
rebuilding year," Richardson said.
that calls for special effort.
P1 KAPPA PHI
... dives for third
Michigan took fifth place. But it was
the first time in Big Ten history that a
team with as few as 12 members had
managed to finish higher than seventh
at the conference championships.
