The Wolverine softball team,
winless against Central Michigan
this year, defeated the Chippewas, 6-
0 and 3-1, in yesterday's doub-
leheader at Varsity Diamond.
"We're a good team, and some-
times good teams win too," Michi-
gan coach Carol Hutchins said. "We
were relaxed and we really played
well. We've been playing good ball
all along, and we've lost some
games that we've really played
Michigan (17-19 overall, 3-5 Big
Ten) took the lead in the bottom of
the second inning when designated
hitter Patti Benedict knocked in Sue
Sieler. Central pitcher Jeanette
Schrand then walked Julie Cooper
with the bases loaded to bring in
catcher Bridget Fitzpatrick. Patti
Benedict scored a third run for Mich-
igan on a Bonnie Tholl single.
Michigan had another three-run
inning in the bottom of the fourth.
first-year player Kari Kunnen started
out the inning for the Wolverines by
belting a double into leftfield. On a
close call, Cooper made it to first on
a grounder and advanced Kunnen to
third. Sara Dyksterhouse reached
second on an error, scoring Kunnen.

'M' MEN DROP ALL SIX SINGLES MATCHES

Notre Dame breezed into the
Track & Field Building yesterday and
blew out the Michigan men's tennis
team. Not even David Kass, the No.
14 singles player in the nation,
could stop the overpowering gusts of
the Fighting Irish.
The Wolverines dropped all six
singles matches, and all except Kass'
were in straight sets. No. 21-ranked
Dave DiLucia toppled Kass, 6-4, 0-
6, 6-4. This was the first match for
Kass since returning from a groin
injury, and according to Michigan
head coach Brian Eisner, his health
may not be at 100 percent yet.
"It was a tough day," Eisner said.
"It was tough coming in because of
David Kass, not knowing right up
until the last minute whether we
should play him or not. If we don't
play him, we really don't have any
chance whatsoever of winning the
Of the remaining Michigan sing-
les players, only fourth singles Terry
London put up any resistance. Lon-
don lost the first set but came back
in the second set to tie at four games
apiece before falling to Notre
Dame's Mark Schmidt.
"I'm very happy to come out of
here with a win," Notre Dame coach
Bobby Bayliss said. "The tradition of
tennis at Michigan is enormous. I
know that they're a little down -this
year and they've had some injuries,
but I'm not taking anything for
Michigan blames its poor perfor-
mance yesterday not only on Kass'
injury, but also on the holiday week-
end and a lack of enthusiasm by the
players. After beating Michigan
State last Thursday, 6-2, Michigan
took Friday off and only practiced
"Unfortunately, we never really
got out of the starting block," Eisner
said. "We looked extremely tired, al-
most psychologically tired.
"Let's give Notre Dame a lot of
credit. They competed well, and they
went right after us."
Notre Dame, along with North-
western, is at the top of the Midwest
region. With a starting singles squad
consisting of four first-year students,
a sophomore, and one senior, they
look to be dominant for at least the
next four years. Michigan, in com-
parison, reached the pinnacle of their
dynasty last year, and this year's
team boasts Kass as the only re-
turning singles player.
"We've played well," Bayliss
said. "We've done particularly well
against No. 3 Georgia, No. 4
Pepperdine, and No. 13 Alabama."
Right now, Northwestern is the
only team that really stands a chance
at qualifying for the NCAAs in the
region over Notre Dame. North-
western beat Notre Dame last week,
but will most likely have to win the
Big Ten Championships in May to
qualify over the Fighting Irish.

what they didn't do, they didn't hit
the ball when they needed to.
"They are an arch-rival of ours,
so I am really happy with my kids."
