Titans

The Michigan men's track team
may have to battle two opponents
this Saturday when it travels to East
Lansing. The first opponent wears
green.
The second adversary isn't so
obvious, unless you've been outside
recently. Both teams will face a
common foe if the weather continues
to be cool.
If the weather does improve,
Michigan should maintain a hopeful
outlook for its first Big Ten meet.
The first reason for a positive
outlook is that the Spartans have yet
to compete outdoors this year. In
contrast, some of the Wolverines
participated in Texas last weekend in
weather conditions similar to Mich-
igan's
One major advantage the Wolv-
erines will possess rests in the pole
vault competition. The Spartans will
not have any pole vaulters compete

this weekend. This is especially
good news for junior Brad Darr
because now he can concentrate
solely on jumping the NCAA
qualifying height of 18 feet 1 and
one half inches.
Senior Warde Manuel, also hopes
to make a name for himself this
weekend in the Big Ten's newest
event, the javelin throw. Manuel,
once a defensive lineman for the
Wolverine football team, currently is
the second best javelin thrower in
the Big Ten, having tossed the
projectile 196 feet.
Among those competing in other
field events will be junior Brad
Holwerda in the high jump.
Holwerda, who jumped 6' 11" last
weekend, will have to worry about
the State squad whose best jumper
has also jumped 6' 11". Though
Holwerda has jumped over seven feet
in the past, Harvey believes this
high jumping face-off "could be a
good one."

Manuel

Although Harvey said the
Wolverine's one weak spot could be
the shot put, he did say he didn't
think it would be a factor this
weekend as Michigan State also does
not field a very good shot put squad
either. The Spartans' strong suit lies
in the distance events and the half
mile. Michigan will be quick to
answer with star senior steeplechaser
Jeff Barnett.

Michigan first baseman Andy
Fairman nailed a deep fly ball to
score Matt Morse in the bottom of
the 13th inning to give the Wolver-
ines (16-14 overall, 2-6 in the Big
Ten) their second straight win over
the University of Detroit yesterday,
4-3.
The weather was frigid at Ray
Fisher Staduim and so were the bats.
Titan pitcher Jamie Cochran went 12
1/3 innings in his first start on the
season.
"He was fantastic," Michigan
coach Bill Freehan said. "We knew
he liked to throw a lot of offspeed
pitches, but he threw the fastball
pretty good right by some of our hit-
ters."
"I'm from the the same area
growing up with him," Michigan
centerfielder Steve Buerkel said. "I've
watched him pitch quite a bit and he
pitched a heck of a game today. He's
pretty consistent."
Buerkel was able to overcome
Cochran for two hits in six at-
tempts. The sophomore began the
game with a one-out single in the
first inning. He then stole second
base before Fairman drove him home
with a single.
Detroit scored the next run in the
top half of the fourth off of a Michi-
gan error to tie the game at one. The
Wolverines broke the tie in the sev-
enth inning after co-captain Phil
Price reached base thanks to a Titan
throwing error and shortstop Scott
Winterlee knocked him in with a
single an out later.
The Titans bounced right back in
the eighth after the first two batters
received walks. Catcher Mike Ste-
fanski hit a Texas Leaguer to score
one of the baserunners. The score
remained deadlocked until the 13th
inning.
Detroit third baseman Dave
Zauner was able to steal first base
after Wolverine Terry Woods threw a
wild pitch with two strikes. Zauner
went to second on a bunt. Stefanski
drove him in with a single to give
the Titans a one run advantage.

So much for planning ahead.
Michigan's women's tennis team
faced Notre Dame yesterday, in what
*was originally a 2 pm starting time.
The match was then moved to 1 pm,
so that the Michigan men's tennis
squad, competing afterward, could
finish its match at a reasonable time.
However, it turned out that such
measures were unnecessary, as the
women's match took a mere three
and half hours to complete. The
reason? No doubles matches were
played.
At the request of Notre Dame
coach Jay Louderback, the teams
called it quits after Michigan had
swept all six singles matches, thus
securing a victory. The Fighting
Irish were also understaffed, with
several players out due to injury,
including No. 1 seed Tracy Barton.
These two factors was apparently
enough for Louderback to request the
early exit. Michigan coach Bitsy.
Ritt, however, was hardly

sympathetic._
"I was a little disappointed,
actually," she stated. "I don't think it
was in the best interest of the
players [not to play the doubles].
That's why we schedule matches-
so the kids can play."
Ritt, though, was more than
pleased with her team's performance
in singles play. With Barton out,
Notre Dame players were playing
one spot above their normal
positions, which no doubt hurt
them.
Wolverine Christine Schmeidel,
playing in the No. 1 spot, raised her
team-leading record to 16-3 by
defeating Melissa Harris 6-4, 6-1.
Schmeidel won the match by
playing conservatively, in response
to her opponent's style of play.
"Harris is a hit-and-miss type of
player," Ritt said. "She tries for the
big shots, and today, they just
weren't there for her. Christine
played a smart match."
No. 2 seed Stacy Berg defeated

Katie Clark, by the score of 7-5, 6-
0. Kalei Beamon, at No. 3 singles,
had little trouble beating Kim
Pacella, winning 6-2, 6-2.
The, closest match of the
afternoon came at the No. 4
position. Wolverine Amy Malik
won the match 7-6 (7), 1-6, 6-3.
"Amy was having a little trouble,"
Ritt explained. "Then she changed
her style slightly and played much
better.
"In the second set, she seemed to
forget how she had won the first set,
and went back to slugging the ball.
Winning the third set was just a
matter of playing smart, which she
did."
Lindsay Aland, at No. 5, defeated
Ann Bradshaw by the score 6-4, 7-6
(4). Finally, No. 6 seed Jennifer Lev
played a strong match, breezing past
Tyler Musleh 6-1, 6-1.
After losing their first four Big
Ten matches, yesterday's victory was
well-appreciated by the Wolverines.
"This was a big win for us," Ritt
said.

KELNINETHIiiMOLLERNI
Michigan third baseman Tim Flannelly is shown here awaiting a pitch
against Iowa in a doubleheader this past weekend.

Dave Everly rallied Michigan
with a one out walk in the bottom
half of the inning. Morse followed
with a single. Then Buerkel nailed a
double to score Everly and tie the
game.
"I was looking for a fastball in,
and he gave it to me," Buerkel said.
"He was working on me inside and
he did a pretty good job. I just hap-
pened to connect with it pretty
good."
Fairman followed with a sacrifice
fly to seal the game for Michigan.
"The bats were a little silent for a
long time," Freehan said.
The Wolverine pitching on the
other hand was spectacular as five
hurlers entered the game for the win.
Senior Rick Leonard started the
game and lasted four innings. The

right hander only allowed one un-
earned run. ,Tunior Jeff Tanderys
threw the next four innings allowing
only one run.
"I was impressed with both
Leonard and Tanderys," Freehan said.
"It was probably the best Tanderys
has pitched. He got the ball across.
He's been struggling with the strike
zone."
Junior Greg Haeger, who usually
plays first, relieved Tanderys to pitch
the ninth inning. It was Haegers first
appearance on the mound this year.
Woods pitched three innings, al-
lowing one run for his first victory
of the spring.
Minnesota will enter Ray Fisher
Staduim this weekend for a four
game series with the Wolverines.
