There's nothing like a nice,
relaxing trip to Florida to cure what
0 ails you.
The Michigan baseball team can
attest to that. The Wolverines'
spring trip may not have been the
most stress-free nine days of their
lives, but they certainly accom-
plished plenty, finishing 6-4 and
winning the Rollins Invitational
Toumament.
Friday's extra-inning affair saw
junior pitcher Ross Powell go seven
innings and strike out seven, before
he left trailing, 4-2. Junior John
Locker went the remaining three
innings, retiring nine of the ten men
he faced for the victory.
MICHIGAN finished off the
trip by winning two of three games
last weekend. Friday, the Wolverines
defeated host Rollins College, 5-4 in
ten innings, to clinch the tourn-
ament championship. Saturday after-
noon, they finished up the tourn-
ament with an 11-6 loss to Portland
State.
Saturday night, they completed
their trip with a last-minute addition
to the schedule, beating defending
Division III National Champion
Ithaca College, 8-0, behind a no-
hitter by junior Tim Lata.
Sophomore Greg Haeger con-
tinued to be a driving force behind
the Wolverines' offensive attack,

batting in two of the five Michigan
runs and scoring two more. Haeger
scored the winning run in the tenth
inning on a wild pitch.
In beating Rollins, Michigan
secured its second consecutive
championship in this tournament.
The Wolverines, who won this
year's tournament with a 4-2 record,
emerged from Rollins victorious in
1985 as well.
IN SATURDAY afternoon's
loss to Portland State, junior Mike
Grimes (0-1) started for Michigan
and went 4 2/3 innings for the loss.
The Portland State attack was
highlighted by a four-run fifth in-
ning and a three-run sixth.
The Wolverines continued to
show offensive potency, led by
senior outfielder Jim Durham, who
went 3-for-4 with three stolen bases.
Chris Gagin and Dave Everly had
two hits apiece, and infielder Andy
Fairman was 2-for-2 with a two-run
double.
Saturday night's contest against
Ithaca was highlighted by Lata's
performance, the first no-hitter by a
Michigan pitcher since 1985, when
Jim Abbott and Scott Kamieniecki
combined on one. Lata struck out
nine in the seven-inning outing. For
his performance Saturday and last
Monday against Yale, he was named
one of three Coppertone players of
the week by Collegiate Baseball.

Women netters avenge losses
BY JEFF SHERAN
Back in October, the Michigan women's tennis team dropped two
matches to Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan, 5-4, and 6-3,
respectively. On the bus ride home, the team decided to set its primary goal
on beating the two schools in their March rematches.
This past weekend it was Western and Eastern who had unpleasant rides
home as the Wolverines defeated them each by the score of 6-3.
The difference, as Michigan coach Elizabeth Ritt explains, is the
improvement in the doubles' performances. The former meetings saw
Michigan concede 5 of 6 doubles matches, whereas last weekend, the team
lost only one.
"It's a great achievement to accomplish goals like these, especially when
you see a definite improvement in one aspect of the team," Ritt said.
The other bright spot for the team was Jennifer Lev. Lev, sidelined prior
to last week with a back injury, returned Wednesday at sixth singles against
Bowling Green. She won her match, and possibly the permanent sixth
singles job, as the team slammed the Falcons, 8-1.
"Having Lev back is a big boost," Ritt said. "You need more than six
players for the number of matches we play. She and Frederika Adam (who
previously held the sixth singles spot) will give us greater options."

To swim faster.
It's a simple goal, but the only one that
members of the Michigan women's swim team
care to set for themselves. Last weekend at the
NCAA Swimming and Diving championships in
Indianapolis, Ann Colloton swam faster than the
rest of the national field as she took first place in
the 200-yard breaststroke.
Michigan tied with UCLA for sixth place.
overall.
In winning the 200 breastroke, Colloton
became the Wolverines' first ever national
champion swimmer.
"It was something I've been thinking about
the last couple of months, especially the few
days before the event," Colloton said. "So when

it actually happened it was kind of anticlimatic. I
really don't feel any different."
Colloton had to work for the win, barely
edging out Texas' Jill Johnson. In what
Michigan head coach Jim Richardson described as
a "thrilling race," Colloton came from behind to
pull dead even with Johnson with 25 yards to go
before nipping her at the finish.
"I was just thinking 'this is the last 25 yards
and I might as well kill myself'," Colloton said.
Colloton finished with a time of 2 minutes
12.96 seconds, Johnson 2:13.11.
Stanford won the overall team competition
with 610.5 points while three time defending
national champion Texas (547) finished second.
Florida (536), Tennessee (258.5) and California-
Berkeley (234) rounded out the top five.

"I'm very pleased with our season,"
Richardson said. "We were able to finish in the
top 10 and no northern school has been in the
top 10 once. We've done it three years in a row."
Gwen DeMaat set two school records at the
meet as she finished 8th in the 1650 (16:21.32)
and 13th in the 400 individual medley (4:14.29).
DeMaat also came in 7th place in the 500
freestyle, breaking her own Big Ten rcecord with
a time of 4:44.43.
Richardson felt that DeMaat would have done
better in the 400 I.M if she didn't have to swim
in the 500 freestyle and 800 freestyle relay the
day before.
His primary goal for next season?
Simple. To have his team swim faster.

Michigan's injury-riddled men's
tennis team dropped two close
matches last weekend to Arkansas
and West Virginia by the identical
scores of 5-4.
"We have really started to be
plagued with injuries," head coach
Brian Eisner said.
Senior Mike Pizzutello, the
number six singles player, was
unable to make the trip to West
Virginia due to tendinitis in his
ankle and foot. Third singles player
Dave Kass reinjured his shoulder
against Arkansas in losing 6-4, 7-6.
He did not compete the next day
against the Mountaineers.

In addition, Michigan's Malivai
Washington, the No. 1 collegiate
player in the country, played his first
match since an injury three weeks
ago. Washington dropped his first
match to Arkansas' Mike Brown, the
No. 2 player in the country, 6-2, 6-
3, but bounced back against
Virginia's Joby Foley, 6-3, 6-3.
"When we're playing those level
of teams, you can't afford to play
two players short," Eisner said.
The injuries forced Eisner to
move all his players up a spot.
Along with making singles players
compete above their usual level, "it
weakens our doubles as well," Eisner
said.
