Men netters' home
finale this weekend

4

By JULIE HOLLMAN
Easter weekend will not be all
chocolate bunnies and blooming
lilies for the men's tennis team as
they will have to fight through
long points and tough matches
against Ohio State, today at 2:30,
and Indiana, tomorrow at 1.
Michigan will tackle both the
Buckeyes and the Hoosiers outside
at the Liberty Tennis and Fitness
Club for its last home stand of the
season. The team played Notre
Dame Wednesday outside and
coach Eisner considered the match
an important one in regards to this
weekend.
"I'm glad we got to play
outdoors today because it let us
get used to it and we will be
playing Ohio State here," said
Eisner.
THE BUCKEYES (2-1 in
the Big Ten, 16-7 overall), sport a
young squad led by Steve Miguel
at number-one singles. "Miguel is
a good volleyer and server. He's
someone to look out for," said
Eisner.
At second doubles, Ohio State
will play one of its most
consistent members, Charles
Wright. Wright is undefeated in
the Big Ten and boasts a 14-10
overall record, but today he will
challenge Wolverine Dan
Goldberg, who is also undefeated
in the conference. Goldberg has
been playing strongly since
recovering from a minor injury
during the Minnesota match and
has not lost in his last 17
appearances.
Indiana will probably provide
Michigan with the tougher battle
of the weekend. Indiana stands in
second place in the conference
right behind the Wolverines and
both squads are undefeated.
Tomorrow's match will have a
great influence in the quest for the
Big Ten title.
The Hoosiers boast three
undefeated singles players and two
-unbeaten doubles combinations.
"Indiana is the third best team in
the Midwest and they might even
be better than Minnesota ( Big

Ten Champion). They'll be
tough," said Eisner.
Although Indiana is strong in
doubles, so is Michigan. The
Wolverines' first doubles team of
Ed Nagel and Ed Filer have not
lost a Big Ten match and are
ranked 36th in the country while
the second team of Jon Morris and
John Royer stand at 46th
nationally.
Women aim for .500
Equal. Even. Five hundred. The
women's tennis team hopes for a
sweep this weekend over Illinois
and Purdue to give them an 11-11
record for the year and essentially,
a chance to break even.
This weekend also gives the
Wolverines, 9-11 overall and 2-6
in the Big Ten, one last chance to
leap a notch or two in the
standings. As Michigan coach
Bitsy Ritt said, "This weekend's
matches are undoubtedly the most
important of the whole season."
The going has been difficult of
late for the Wolverines as they ran
into two piping hot teams last
weekend, losing, 8-1, to
Minnesota, and 9-0, to
Wisconsin. Ritt said, "Any time
you play a Big Ten team, it's not
easy.
HOWEVER, IF there's an
optimal pair of Big Ten teams to
play in late April, Purdue and
Illinois may be that perfect two.
Illinois, at 1-3 in the Big Ten, 8-
13 overall, has struggled the entire
season managing only a seventh-
place standing in the Big Ten.
For the Boilermakers, the
clouds are definitely darker as they
are 1-6 in the Big Ten and 4-12
overall. Purdue has only one
player, (number three singles,
Krista Schreck), with a winning
record, 9-7.
This weekend will probably
determine two crucial points for
Michigan. First, is where the
Wolverines will finish in the Big
Ten.

When a team has only one home
confrontation in a two-season long
sport, that one meet is a special
occassion.
This Saturday at Gallup Park,
the rowing club will hold this once-
a-year event. The 1 ith Anniversary

universities with a crew team will
compete.
Along with Michigan State and
Grand Valley, the Detroit Boat
Club, Wyandotte Boat Club and
University of Toledo will also be
there.
"We're looking forward to
another successful regatta," said
first-year head coach Brian Benz, a
nationally-ranked lightweight rower
himself.

heavyweight), and experience (high
school, novice, and varsity).
Although a club sport, the team
competes at a varsity level with
crews from around the country and
at highly competitive regattas-and
is successful in doing so.
The women's heavyweight four
of Marjorie Allen, Regina Dodge,
Kim Dyson, and Anne Carroll
captured a bronze medal in a regatta
in Augusta, Ga. two weeks ago
against such powerhouses as
Temple and Princeton, as well as
national champion Wisconsin.
IN THE FALL, the team
competes at the largest regatta in
the country, the Head of the Charles
in Cambridge, Mass. In May, the
Dad Vails in Philadelphia
highlights the spring season for the
club.
Once a varsity sport at the
University in the 1920s, the club
would eventually like to see
themselves return to that status. "I
would like the club some day to
become a varsity sport so we could
get the rowers to concentrate more
on rowing and less on fundraising,"
said Benz.
As it is now, the rowers must be
equally as dedicated to the club's
fundraising activities as they are to
their rowing to keep the club above
water.
Operating with a $40,000 budget
which includes two coaches'
salaries (Benz and novice coach
Mike Caviston), maintenance and
repairs, race entry fees, and

ieet of year

equipment purchases, the team
must raise 96 percent of its budget
on its own according to Benz. One
oar alone costs $185 and an average
eight-person boat about $8,000.
The club has worked to accumulate
11 racing shells and five sets of
oars stored in a recently built
boathouse at Argo Pond.
The club's annual raffle, held in
February, raises $17,000 of the
large team budget. but not without

much time and effort by every
rower on the team. Each rower
must sell 200, one dollar tickets to
do their part. In addition, many
other fundraisers are held
throughout the year where each
person must meet a quota.
ALL OF THIS WORK is in
addition to practicing six days a
week at 6 a.m. in the fall and
spring, while training vigorously 4
on land running and lifting weights
during the winter. Yet, the intrinsic
value and challenge of perfecting a
skill makes the effort worthwhile
for the rowers.
"To perfect a rowing stroke in a
team boat is an extreme challenge.
It is a true team sport" said Benz.
Every rower must be in exact
synchronicity to achieve maximum
speed.
