Wolverines hold off Ferris State, 6-5
By SCOTT G. MILLER
Everything was set for an upset.
Ferris State had the tying run on
third base with two out in the top of
the seventh. The Bulldogs most
productive hitter, Scott Kelly (.361),
came to the plate. Kelly was 0-3 and
BUT MICHIGAN relief pitcher
Greg Everson struck out Kelly to
preserve the Wolverines 6-5 victory in
an error-marred contest.
"You don't give a good team like
Michigan chances," said Bulldog
coach Judd Folske. "We gave up three
runs because we didn't handle a
ground ball. That is the way we have
been self-destructing all year."
The Wolverines' wrecking crew
destroyed the Bulldogs in the fifth.
With Ferris leading 4-3, Michigan
brought seven men to the plate and
scored three runs. Bulldog second
baseman Chuck Morgan committed
his third error to open the inning. Cen-
ter fielder Dan Disher, who went
one-for-two on the afternoon, drove
in the first of the runs with a sacrifice
fly to right. Disher had been hitting
.196 for the season.
"IT WAS good to see Disher get the
sacrifice fly with two strikes on him in
a key situation," said Michigan coach
Bud Middaugh. "He has been
Third baseman Jeff Kiel and second
baseman Doug Kaiser followed
Disher with RBI singles to win the
game for Everson, who is now 3-0.
John Grettenberger started for
Michigan and was effective in his four
innings of work. The junior struck out
"Gret did a good job even though he
didn't have his good fastball today,
probably because he hasn't thrown for
quite a while," 'said Midddaugh. "His
curveball was his big pitch today."
"I STARTED off a little rough," said
Grettenberger. "I picked up in the
Ferris roughed up Grettenberger in
the first inning. Shortstop Todd
Schultz's homerun served notice that
the 10-21 Bulldogs would fight hard to
prevent loss number twenty two.
"We have had problems with Ferris
over the years. They come out and
usually play one of their best games of
the year against us," said Big Ten
Player-of-the-Week Casey Close. "I
am not really surprised they did well.
They came out and played hard."
"WE CAN beat anybody on any
given day whether or not it is
Michigan," said Folske. "We have the
same problem Michigan has. We play
some smaller schools than. us, and
they tatoo us."
Michigan did the tatooing in the bot-
tom of the second. Disher and Kiel
singled, and starting second baseman
Steve Finken cracked a double to drive
them in. Catcher Mike Gillette
knocked in Finken with a hit off losing
pitcher Scott Hunt (0-2).
Ferris fought back in the top of the
fifth scoring three runs, two of which
were unearned. Eric Sanders and
Everson committed errors. For the
day Michigan won the battle of booted
"I DON'T like them," commented
Middaugh about the errors. "Not at
Despite the errors, Middaugh has to
like his squad's 26-7 season mark. The
second game of the doubleheader was
rained and/or snowed out. The
weather seemed to bother the
Wolverines as much as the Bulldogs.
"The weather makes it difficult to
play," said Close. "A nice sunshiny day
just picks up everone's attitude. It is
tough to concentrate during a mid-
week game when it is cold, and the
wind is blowing in your face."
THE FIERCE breeze did not help
Ferris relief pitcher Mark Smoker,
who was burned in the fifth for the
game winning run. Smoker's
replacement, Steve Wild, put out the-
fire in the inning and was right on
target for the remainder of the con-
test, not allowing any hits and striking

Slowly but surely is how the
women's tennis team is recovering
from the injuries that have been
plaguing it for the past few weeks.
Fortunately for the Wolverines, two of
the three key injured players are
healthyenough to appear in this af-
ternoon's Big Ten match against

Erin Ashare, who last week suf-
fered from a pulled back muscle, and
Tina Basle, with a hamstring injury,
are both slated to perform against the
Spartans. Ashare will be handling
number-four singles and will be
teaming with Paula Reichert at num-
ber-one doubles. Basle won't be
playing at her usual number-two
singles spot since she is not yet fully
over her leg pull, though she will be
helping to cover number-two doubles.
THE ABSENCE of Basle and Tricia
Horn, who is still having problems
with her back, in singles spots could
very well prove detrimental to the
Wolverines as they come up against a
very confident Spartan squad.

Washburn to turn pro
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Chris
Washburn, North Carolina State's 6-
foot-11 sophomore center, will give up
his final two years of college
eligibility to enter the National
Basketball Association hardship
draft, Wolfpack basketball Coach Jim
Valvano said yesterday.
"I spoke Monday night with...Chris'
mother, and again this morning,"
Valvano said, "and Mrs. Washburn
indicated his intention is to bypass his
last two years of college and turn
WASHBURN, a Hickory, N.C.
native, led the Woilfpack in scoring
last season with an average of 17.6
points per game and 6.7 rebounds.
In his freshman year, Washburn
was suspended from the team after
being charged with stealing a stereo
from the dormitory room of a fellow
student. He was convicted on
misdemeanor charges stemming
from the theft andnwas sentenced to
320 hours of community service, a
$1,000 fine and counseling.
WASHBURN'S legal problems led
to a controversy over athletics and
showed he had scored 470 on the
Scholastic Aptitude Test, 70 points
above the minimum possible score
and well under the average of 1,030 for
freshmen entering N.C. State.
Washburn said he answered only six
questions and did not take the SAT
test seriously because he had been
told by some basketball coaches that
the test would not matter.
Golfers happy with fifth
Finishing in the middle of the pack
has meant a quick terminatipn for
many a coach, but women's golf
coach Sue LeClair has no such job
worries. Not when powerhouses In-
diana and Ohio State demand that the
most everyone else in the Big Ten can
battle for is respectability. So it is no
surprise that LeClair "was pleased"
with her team's fifth place finish in
the ten team field at the Illini Spring
Classic, just as the one-two finish of
the Hoosiers and Buckeyes was ex-
"Coming in we were hoping to
finish somewhere in the middle," said
LeClair. "We were in fourth after the
first round, but we had a rough 18
holes after that."
Leading the way for the Wolverines
were juniors Missy Bower and Jan
Idomir, with total scores of 240 and
241. LeClair was most pleased with
her team's tournament average of 81.
"One of our team's goals is to average
80 in our tournaments," she said.
Michigan did not have its full squad,
with two seniors staying home due to
class conflicts. Asked to elaborate,
LeClair said "they're trying to finish
their classes and get out of here on
time." The two absences forced
LeClair to bring along freshman Noel
Brisson, who had a strong showing in
A final source of pleasure for
LeClair was the weather, which she
called "fairly good for Illinois." The
team's next stop is Purdue, and
LeClair is looking for the good
weather and good vibes to continue.
