Netters rout Broncos

by Phil Green
Daily Sports Writer
Sometimes things come easier
than one might expect. Michigan's
men's tennis team found this out
yesterday afternoon.
In a match that was supposed to
at least challenge the Wolverines,
Michigan won every set in all six
singles matches en route to an 8-1
victory over Western Michigan Uni-
versity at the Track and Tennis
Building.
"They're not the kind of team
anyone should lose sets to, but we
shouldn't win them all (6-)2, (6-)3
either," Wolverine No.1 singles
player David Kass said.
A major factor in Michigan's vic-
tory was the absence of Broncos'
No.1 singles player Eric Schmid. He
missed the match because of recur-
ring back problems, forcing each
Bronco singles player to play one

position higher than usual, adding to
the Wolverines' dominance.
"He's been out for a couple of
weeks. We're hoping to get him
back for the league season in a few
weeks, but right now we're strug-
gling a lot without him," Western
coach Jack Vredevelt explained.
Once the competition hit the dou-
bles matches, the lineups got jug-
gled again. Vredevelt replaced
Schmid in Western's first doubles
team with Scott Kilgren, leading
Michigan coach Brian Eisner to
scratch his top team of Kass and
Scott Cuppett.
"With the match already won
(winning the six singles matches), I
could afford to rest them. David's
shoulder is still sore and so is
Scott's arm," Eisner said.
Michigan went on to win the
first two doubles matches in straight

sets behind the usual No. 2 and 3
teams of John Karzen and Mitch Ru-
benstein, and Terry London and Dav-
id Pierce, respectively. The Wolver-
ines, though, lost their shutout in
the third match in straight sets.
Despite the easy victory, Eisner
was unhappy with his team's effort.
"We looked very tired, like we had
very little energy," he said. "It be-
comes easy for a player to realize, 'I
don't have to go all out to win.' We
really didn't go out as much as I
would like, yet we won quite eas-
ily."
When a team wins that easily,
the coach must be able to find some
good points. Eisner eventually did.
"It was definitely a positive
match," he quickly added. "Several
people needed to get back on the
winning track and get their confi-
dence back."

Sophomore Eric Wunderlich is one of nine Wolverine qualifiers for the NCAA Championships which begin today
in Indianapolis. Wunderlich will compete in the 100 breaststroke along with junior Mike Barrowman.
'M' dives into NCAAs

by David Schechter
Daily Sports Writer
The Wolverine men's swim team didn't taste
much spice this season.
A pinchful of losses, and a teaspoon of compe-
tition were the only flavoring Michigan's opponents
could concoct. Until today.
The Michigan swim team won't be the main
course this weekend at the NCAA tournament in Indi-
anapolis because, for once, they're not favored to win.
The University of Texas is the early favorite to
capture the title of National Champions, followed
closely by Stanford and the University of Southern
California.
The Wolverines find themselves lumped into a
second tier of competition with UCLA, the Univer-
sity of Florida, and Berkeley.
This will be Michigan's best chance to win in the
last 30 years and for the next few years, as this is co-
captain Brent Lang's last year. Lang is dominant in
several individual events and anchor man on four
relays.
"For us to win it, Texas has to swim below their
level and we have to swim above ours," Lang said.
People here (Indianapolis) talk about us as having
potential. They give us an outside shot," he added.
In 1986, the Wolverines finished 25th in the
tournament and last year they placed third. A national
championship for Michigan would cap off a five year
surge through the NCAA rankings.
But it won't be easy. Ten Wolverines qualified
them for the NCAAs, down from 11 last year.
Unfortunately for Michigan, Stanford qualified 17
swimmers.
Each swimmer competes in three events during the
tournament, thus giving Stanford 21 more opportu-
nities to turn in point-winning times.

Michigan will count on divers Mike Bayerl and
Bill Hayes, and the rest of the team to pick up a lot
of that slack.
Michigan's chances for individual records is great.
Lang, who won the 100 freestyle as a sophomore, is
looking to do it again. He lost out last year by
disqualifying himself on an early start.
Eric Wunderlich and Mike Barrowman have strong
chances to place one and two in the 100 breaststroke.
Also, Eric Namesnik's chances to win the 400 I.M.
are strong.
"I've seen myself winning the 400 in the back of
my head for a while now. I really hope I can do it.,"
Wunderlich said. "But as a team, we'll need help from
the other teams. In other words, they have to screw
up. But there's always an outside chance for us."
Barrowman is less optimistic about his personal
performances. "I look at training short term different
than the long term. This is not something that comes
if I just hope, and I'm still looking at the world
championships. But if (winning now) happens, I'll be
really happy," he said.
"I think the team would be pleased with a fifth-
place finish. With all the distraction of school, finish-
ing the season in the top five would be terrific," he
added.
But the Wolverines won't be crushed if they come
home without the title. The team will be disappointed
if, as Lang puts it, "We don't have a good time.
"We'll do our best. It's not like we have to do this
or bust. It's not that kind of pressure. We don't see
this as a payoff to a good season. If we do well, it'll
be more of a reward," Lang said.
Or maybe dessert to a fine meal.

Softball squad aims to repeat

by Sarah Osburn
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan softball team will
travel to San Jose State to defend its
Bud Lite Invitational title this week-
end. After a 2-6 record to open the
season, the team will look to cont-
inue its eight-game winning streak,
including the South Florida Invi-
tational.
Last year, the team won the tour-
nament with an 8-1 record, losing
only to Utah State. This year the
Wolverines will face Utah State
again, as well as tough competition
from Massachusetts and Berkeley.
"We are excited about the tour-
nament, and we are going to attempt
to repeat, but our main goal is to
improve and get ready for the Big
Ten," Michigan captain Jenny Allard
said.
The Wolverines finished second
in the Big Ten last season, earning
themselves a No. 17 ranking. This
year, the team has a specific goal -
to win the Big Ten.
Coach Hutchins also regards the
invitational as preparation for the
rest of the season. "We need to gain
consistency and improve our de-
fense," she said. "That is our only

weakness. We are good, but we need
consistency to be great."
Allard, the South Florida In-
vitational MVP, explains the team's
most recent success. "We have been
scoring many runs, 55 in the last 8
games, and we have been dominating
everyone we play."
The only weakness she could
point out was, "We need to gel more
as a team. We've only played sixteen
games and that (gelling) is already

starting to happen. The freshmen are
starting to contribute, so we have a
lot of people who can do the job."
The Wolverines have compiled
impressive statistics to take into the
invitational. Sara Dyksterhouse re-
turned from spring break batting
close to .500. Heather Lyke, named
all-tournament as a designated hitter,
was also impressive with a .366
average.
