'M' rotates doubles partners for weekend state tournament
. . .
by Becky Weiss
When the Michigan women's
tennis team travels to East Lansing
Sunday for the State of Michigan
Tournament, it will be hoping to
gain more than just experience. The
outcome of the doubles matches
should help determine pairings for
regular season play.
"We're trying several new
doubles combinations to see how
well they play together and (their
results) could have an impact on our
spring lineup," Michigan coach
Elizabeth Ritt said.
Junior Christine Schmeidel's
bout with tendonitis may not allow
her to play, Ritt indicated, and her
absence leaves room for juniors
Freddy Adam and Kim Pratt to team
up at first doubles.
Another new combination will be
captain Stacey Berg and sophomore
Kalei Beamon at second doubles.
Neither pair played together during
the Indiana Fall Tournament or the
North Carolina State Classic, the
Wolverines' first two tournaments of
can be misleading.
"A lot depends on the draw," she
said. "If our No. 2's all draw No.
1's, it would be a more difficult
match (than if it were in head-to-head

team is to win all the flights. We
want to see all Michigan finals. i
This tournament is unusual in
that there will be eight singles
positions to fill instead of the usual
six, which Ritt feels "will give alt
players a good opportunity to get
some matches in," while alsa
boosting Michigan's confidence.
Ritt is looking for improvement
from everyone, since the Wolver2
ines' last tournament was in early@
September, and they have had a few;
weeks to prepare.
"We have all six starters back anc
everyone is playing well," Ritt
added. "We're hoping for some morn
aggressive play in doubles and
smarter points in singles."
Like the previous two matches,
this tournament is an individual
flighted tournament in which each
team's No. 1 and No. 2 entrants are
put in the same draw. Each team's
No. 3 and No. 4 entrants then form a
separate draw. According to Ritt, the
results of this type of tournament
nament has changed, and will not be
scored, Ritt still considers these
matches against Michigan State,
Western Michigan and Eastern Mich-

terms of confidence," the coach said.
