Women win 8-1 but lose Schmeidel
by Jeni Durst
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's tennis
team won practically every match
against Michigan State yesterday,
but, in the process, could have lost
something far more important.
The Wolverines defeated the
Spartans overwhelmingly, 8-1, los-
ing at only No. 1 doubles because of
an injury retire to Christine Schmei-
del. Coach Betsy Ritt decided to
forfeit the match after Schmeidel
strained a leg muscle in the middle
of the second set. Schmeidel's out-
look for the remainder of the season
is still unknown.
"I can't comment on (her injury)
until I know more about it," said
Ritt. "She felt that she could have
possibly continued, but really, at
that point, there wasn't a need to
risk it. It was very cold and we had
already won the match.
"We're just going to have to wait
and see how serious it is. It could be
the type of thing, too, where if she
takes a couple days off she could be
ready to play against Ohio State on
Outside of No. 1 doubles, the
Wolverines turned in a flawless
performance. Michigan captured all
six of the singles competitions in
straight sets. With the win, the
squad's record improves to 16-7
overall and 3-4 in the Big Ten; the
Spartans now post a 0-7 conference
"I thought we played well," Ritt
said. We weren't pushed by State,
and sometimes it's hard to play well
in matches when you're not pushed.
Even though Michigan State has
been struggling they played better
last weekend against Illinois and
Purdue and they seemed psyched up
for the match. But we had a good day
and we're stronger than they are, we
"I think Michigan played very
well," Michigan State coach Heather
MacTaggert said. "We were compe-
titive with them in half of the
singles matches, we had a couple
very close first sets. But they came
out strong and kind of took it to us
in the second sets. Michigan just has
a lot more depth this year."
'M' sluggers to face
fearsome Illini bats
by Ryan Schreiber
Daily Baseball Writer
Following their first Big Ten
doubleheader sweep of the season,
Michigan coach Bill Freehan's base-
ball team will try to duplicate the
feat twice this weekend versus
"I've only seen them twice,"
Freehan said. "We played them in
the tournament in Las Vegas at the
beginning of the year. We faced
them in the second game of the
season and the fifth."
In those two early meetings
between the two squads, the Wol-
verines (20-17 overall, 6-8 in the
Big Ten) came out on top, 6-2, and
were clobbered in the rematch two
days later, 10-3.
As they proved in that second
game, Illinois has an offense that
can counter the strength of Mich-
"Their strength is experience, of-
fense, and a strong schedule nation-
ally," Freehan said. "We have been
stronger in pitching and our offense
has picked up of late. Hopefully the
games we won on Wednesday will
keep us going. We swept Michigan
State for our first Big Ten sweep of
Illinois' power lies in its potent
offense. Catcher Sean Mulligan leads
the Illini with a .371 average and 14
homers. Third baseman and captain
Mark Dalesandro adds not only sen-
ior leadership, but 10 home runs and
a .334 average.
With Illinois' stellar 10-2 confer-
ence record (28-11 overall), Mich-
igan will depend on their starting
rotation to quiet the Illini bats. On
Saturday, Michigan's teamu ERA
leader Jason Pfaff will take the
mound, followed by rookie Dennis
Konuszewski. Sunday will see Rus-
sell Brock and co-captain Kirt Ojala.
While the season has not been up
to the caliber of a typical Michigan
team, Freehan sees this weekend as a
"With no major goals-we can't
win the Big Ten championship-
playing the team in the driver's seat,
the defending Big Ten champs, we
can send a signal that we mean

RB'S HEADLINE ANN
by Eric Lemont
Daily Football Writer
Two years ago, Tony Boles
secured the job as Michigan's start-
ing tailback as he ran for 135 yards
in the Spring Game. Last year,
Elvis Grbac completed only 4-11
passes for 38 yards. But we all
know where he wound up.
So, is tomorrow's annual Mich-
igan football intrasquad game (1
p.m., Michigan Stadium) a mean-
ingful barometer for who will be
playing in the season opener
against Notre Dame? Or is it
simply a spring fashion show to
see who looks good in dropback
White or breakaway Blue?
The answer varies by position
with the most heated competition
occurring at the running back slot.

Senior Allen Jefferson and soph-

Vaughn are all looking to impress
the Michigan coaching staff with
another Boles-like performance.
"They're getting after it," coach
Gary Moeller said. "It's a competi-
tive situation. I feel like I could
make a decision today but I want to
keep it a competitive situation."
Moeller said he will also be
paying close attention to other
offensive skill positions including
wide receiver and tight end. Defen-
