sputter to 15th
place in South
By BRIAN DELANEY
In its first tournament of the
season, the men's golf team
competed in the South Florida
Invitational at Tampa, Florida and
placed 15th out of a very
competitive 16-team field. The
Wolverines finished with a three-
day total score of 924 strokes,
which was 33 strokes better than
last year in the same tournament.
Leading the team was junior
Scott Chipokas, with a total of 226
strokes. Following Chipokas were
John Codere (231), Bob Papp
(232), Tom Paton (237) and Hersh
Considering Michigan was the
only team in the field which had
not played in a tournament this
year, they were confronted with a
tremendous disadvantage to
overcome. In addition, Michigan
,competed against the top Southern
schools in the nation. These
schools have a distinct advantage
over their Northern counterparts in
recruiting the. top high school
golfers. As a result, many of the
schools Michigan competed against
are loaded with future professional
R E L A T I V E to these
circumstances, head coach Jim
Carras was satisfied with his team's

performance. "Overall I was very
happy with our performance and not
concerned where we would finish,"
The main objective of this
tournament was "to practice against
good competition, play within
ourselves and improve each
HE ALSO emphasized the fact
that due to his team's lack of
tournament experience, Michigan
can't expect to win or place high in
a tournament of this caliber.
According to Carras , "the team
needs more tournament experience,"
in order to be able to compete
effectively against the top golf
The part of the squad's
performance that pleased Carras the
most was the short game. Due to
the practice and timing that is
needed to develop a solid short
game, this is usually the most
difficult part of golf to perform well
at early in the season, but the
Wolverines did putt particularly
Carras is optimistic that a solid
commitment and attitude from the
team should be able to lift the squad
to the top three of the Big Ten.
Wolverines spring into
home opener vs. Lakers
By GREG MOLZON
After a successful ten-day trip to Texas in which the baseball team
won the Citrus Tournament at Pan American University, Wolverine
fans will finally get a chance to see the team in person today in its
home opener against Grand Valley State.
Michigan, 7-2, will host the Lakers for a doubleheader at Ray
Fisher Stadium beginning at 1 p.m.
The Wolverines will be looking for their fifth and sixth
consecutive victories after they swept their last four games to win the
Citrus Tournament Championship over Kansas, St. John's, Miami
(Ohio), and Pan American. It was the third year in a row that the
Wolverines have won a tournament on their spring trip.
HEAD COACH Bud Middaugh was satisfied with the team's
success, but said that the results were misleading and that there is still
plenty of room for improvement. "Offensively we need to improve
quite a bit. I don't think we swung the bats very well. The other
thing was, I thought defensively we broke down too much," said
Although pitching proved to be the Wolverines' strong point, two
of the team's best pitchers, Jim Abbott and Mike Ignasiak, combined
to go 1-2 on the trip.
The fact that the team did so well without their wins surprised
Middaugh. "If I would have told you before the trip that Abbott and
Iggy (Ignasiak) would be a combined 1-2, what kind of trip do you
think we would have had?" the coach asked rhetorically.
BOTH OF these pitchers will get a quick chance to turn around their
fortunes as Ignasiak and Abbott will be the starters in today's games.
Don't expect to see any complete games, though, because
Middaugh plans to work as many pitchers as he can in order to keep
them sharp for this weekend when the team will play four games in
two days at Columbus.
"We're always looking forward to an opener, but I'll probably split
up the pitching so we can see quite a bit of our pitchers throw," said
Other pitchers who may see action are Greg Everson (1-0 and 1
save), Mike Grimes (2-0), and Dave Peralta (2-0 and a 0.00 ERA).
Although Middaugh wasn't particularly pleased with his squad's
hitting in Texas, the Wolverines did hit .315 as a team and outscored
their opposition 64-35.
Leading the Wolverines' offensive attack were Steve Finken, Phil
Price, Eddie Woolwine, and Bill St. Peter.
Michigan pitcher John Grettenberger is shown here pitching in a game
last year. The senior is expected to add experience to the pitching squad
as the Wolverines open their home-season with a doubleheader against
Grand Valley State today.

Practice, practice, practice is what the men's tennis
team will be looking for today at 2:30 against Eastern
Michigan at the Track and Tennis Building.
"This will be a good match for us to practice in,"
said head coach Brian Eisner who can notch his 270th
career win with a victory against the Hurons. "I need
to see people play in order to determine how good
this team really is. We need to build consistency and
the only way to do this is through actual match
Although the lineup for Michigan has not been
determined yet, there are bound to be people playing
who have not had much playing time before. '
THIS IDEA was used last Friday against
Northern Illinois and it proved to be very successful
as victories were won by non-regulars Franz Geiger at
number six singles and Michael Pizzutello and Chip
McColl at number three doubles.
"Our team has made dramatic improvements since
the start of the season and they are continuing to
make improvements," said Eisner. "We have set up
on a monthly basis three goals for each individual in
which specific improvement is stressed. At the end of
the month, these goals will be evaluated and new
oneswill be set to continue the improvement that we
EASTERN, 6-1, is led by senior number one
singles player Matt Kuhlman, who has compiled a 9-
3 record at that spot so far this year.
Freshman Aziz Hoosenally is the most consistent
player other than Kuhlman on the Huron team.
Hoosenally has a 5-2. record at the number five
singles spot and has also played well at the number
three doubles spot.
Eastern is coming into this match after completing
a trip down South where they beat teams such as
Central Florida, Tampa, and Stetson with their only
loss coming at the hands of Southern Florida.
