Women netters smashed by ASU

cer earns academic
All-America honors

Habits are easy to form. The
women's tennis team has definitely
formed a losing one against Michigan
State. The Spartans beat the Wolveri-
nes yesterday for the fourth time this
season, this time with an 8-1 drubbing.
Michigan's one win came at the
third singles spot as Erin Ashare,
returning from a shoulder injury, beat'
MSU's Mari Maralonso in three
sets, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4. "It was a good win
for Erin," Michigan's head coach Bit-
sy Ritt said. "I think this is the highest
she's played all year."
ANOTHER Wolverine who played
well, but with a less fortunate out-
come, was Paula Reichert at first
singles. She handily took the first set
from Linda Pursel, 6-3, and almost
won the match in the second.
Reichert was down 5-2 in the second
set when she rallied to win four
straight games, bringing the score to;
6-4. She then double-faulted to tie the
match and during the tie-breaker
double-faulted three more times.
Reichert lost the set, 7-6, and went on
to lose the third set, 6-3.
"Paulta told me after the match
that she got uptight after double-
faulting the first time," said Ritt.
"Once you do it once, especially on big
points, it's easy to lose confidence."

RITT'S confidence for Michigan's
upcoming matches might be a little
shaken since Tina Basle reinjured her
pulled hamstring. Basle was playing
in the second set of the second doubles
match when she strained the muscle.
"I'm really concerned about Tina,"
Ritt said. "She had had a good week at
practice and was getting stronger. We
hoped that she would be playing both
singles and doubles by next
Unfortunately for Basle and her
partner Leslie Mackey, the injury oc-
curred when they could still have won
the match against Pursel and Nancy
Redmon. Basle and Mackey won the
first set 6-2, and were on their way to
winning the second but Basle could
not play in pain, and was unable to
finish. Basle and Mackey lost the
second set, 7-5, and defaulted during
the third while behind, 3-0.
None of the other Wolverines lasted
more than two sets, but Ritt said she
will not look back on the match. "We
are stronger than an 8-1 loss to MSU
shows. We are already looking for-
ward to this weekend's matches with
Illinois and Purdue."

Frank Downing capped off a
"rewarding" year yesterday when
the 1985-86 Michigan hockey cap-
tain received second team
academic All-America honors by
the College Hockey Statistics
"It's fantastic," said Downing,
who carries a 3.43 grade point
average in the business school.
"I've always dreamed about being
an academic All-American. I've
put a lot of hard work into school as
well as hockey and I'm glad that it
has been so rewarding. I really
can't believe it."
DOWNING was just as im-
pressive on the ice as he was in the
classroom. The senior from Or-
chard Park, N.Y. scored 20 goals
this past season for the
Wolverines, bettering by one his
goal total during his first three
years.He scored his 20th goal, most
fittingly, in his last game in a
Michigan uniform against
Michigan State.
"I'm really pleased that Frank's
getting the national recognition
that he deserves," said coach Red

...academic All-American
Berenson. "He's paid the price to
do well in a very competitive
business school, and he's also
come up with his best season as a
hockey player."
Downing, who plans to go into
business with his father in Buffalo,
was the only unanimous selection
for the CCHA All-Academic team.
He was also named to the same
team as a junior.

Sophomore Erin Ashare fires a backhand during yesterday's match
against Michigan State. Ashare was the lone bright spot for Michigan, as
the Spartans crushed the Wolverines, 8-1. Ashare won her third singles
match, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.

KC nips
"Red Sox,
BOSTON (AP) - Steve Balboni
belted a long homer and Bret
Saberhagen allowed only two hits
yesterday as the Kansas City Royals
posted their fourth victory in a row
.with a 1-0 decision over the Boston
Red Sox.
Balboni's second home run of the
season leading off the second inning
off Boston's Al Nipper was all
Saberhagen needed for his first vic-
tory of the season.
THE 1986 American League Cy
Young Award winner and the World
Series MVP allowed only singles by
Tony Armas with two out in the
second and by Don Baylor leading off
the fifth. Neither Armas nor Baylor
advanced beyond first.
The only other Boston runner was
Wade Boggs, who walked and was
erased as Jim Rice grounded into his
third double play in eighth games in
the fourth.
Saberhagen, who turned 22 last
Friday, lasted less than six innings in
his 1986 debut against the New York
Yankees last week after losing time in
spring training with a sore shoulder
and a virus. He was not involved in the
New York decision.
- Saberhagen struck out five and
walked just one in outdueling Nipper,
-1, who went the distance. The Boston
right-hander allowed only five hits,
struck out one and walked four.
Twins drop
Asi th
Gaetti hit a two-run home run in the
10th inning off Oakland reliever Keith
Atherton yesterday, lifting the Min-
nesota Twins to a 7-5 victory over the
With two outs in the 10th, Mark
Salas reached on an infield hit. Gaetti
then hit a two-strike pitch deep over
*the left-center field fence as the Twins
snapped a four-game losing streak.
Ron Davis, 1-0, earned the victory in
relief of Twins starter Burt Blyleven
with 1 2-3 innings of one-hit work.
Atherton, 1-1, took the loss.
With the A's trailing 4-2 with two out
in the sixth, Carney Lansford singled
and Donnie Hill followed with a homer
over the right-field fence to tie it.
Minnesota built its two-run lead off
A's starter Joaquin Andujar in the fif-
Oth on Randv Bush's three-run homer.
