.Blue,

White

put on show for

Mo

by Ken Davidoff
Daily Sports Editor
If it had actually meant anything,
it might have been one of the more
memorable games in Michigan foot-
ball history.
Then again, if it had actually
meant anything, Coach Gary Mo-
eller wouldn't have told reporters
that he "didn't get a chance" to see
some of the contest.
In Michigan's annual Spring
Football Game, in which the squad
splits in two, the White pulled off a
dramatic comeback to defeat the
Blue, 21-20, as kicker Pete Elezovic
nailed a 31-yard field goal with no
time remaining. The game featured
trick plays, quarters of diminishing
length and flashes of the "old" Ricky
Powers. Moeller expressed satis-
faction with the display.
"Overall, I was quite pleased to-
day from the standpoint of the effort,
and the enthusiasm was kind of fun
to watch," Moeller said. "To be hon-
est with you, I'll go home and look
at film, and I won't want to get up
in the morning."
Yes, Moeller was joking, for he

did have much to smile about.
Starting quarterback Todd Collins
completed 14 of 19 passes for 129
yards without an interception. Pow-
ers produced a total of 97 yards -
71 rushing, 26 receiving - while
starting tailback Tyrone Wheatley
ran for another 74. Ty Law recorded
two interceptions, and receiver Fel-
man Malveaux registered another 81
reception yards.
Elezovic's field goal punctuated a
34-yard drive that seemed like it
would be able to reach the end zone
before time expired. The ball reached
the Blue's 5-yard line before consec-
utive runs by Powers and Collins re-
sulted in a total loss of eight yards.
Elezovic's teammates charged the
field and thanked Elezovic for guar-
anteeing the post-game steak dinner,
rather than the loser's hot dogs.
The game began on an unusual
note, as the Blue successfully pulled
off an onside kick. Although it did-
n't lead to any points, the maneuver
set the tone for a day full of reverses,
double reverses and team changes by
players in the middle of drives.
It took the bulk of the first quar-

Powers

ter before either side lit up the score-
board. Backup quarterback Jay Riem-
ersma engineered an 87-yard drive,
culminating in a 23-yard pass to
Amani Toomer. Redshirt freshman
kicker Remy Hamilton made the
extra point to give the Blue a 7-0
advantage.

Men golfers continue

by Elisa Sneed
Daily Sports Writer
They don Michigan's Maize and
Blue, they have seven returning let-
ter-winners and four new members
*on their team this year. They hail
from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and
Texas and have a lot of potential tal-
ent. But they still haven't been able
to get things together as a team in
competition this spring season.
They are the members of the
Michigan men's golf team.
Last weekend at Guyan Country
Club in Huntington, W. Va., as the
*Ohio State Buckeyes snatched their
13th Marshall Invitational title in the
24-year history of the tournament
(293-287-298--878), the Wolver-
ines failed to improve upon their
previous finishes this season. Michi-
gan culminated the invite with a
three-round team total of 919. The
result was a disappointing tie for
14th (of 18 teams) with Eastern
Kentucky.
"I'm a little critical of the kids
right now," Michigan coach Jim
Carras said. "But in all fairness to
them, you've gotta practice and play
to show improvement."
While the finale to the tourna-
ment does seem a bit discouraging
for Michigan, not everything was
dismal along the way.
"The only highlight for us was
Anthony (Dietz). He had an oustand-
ing tournament," Carras said of the
senior co-captain.

The Michigan women's tennis
team is on a roll.
The Wolverines (5-2 Big Ten,
10-7 overall) swept Minnesota and
Iowa by 7-2 scores in home dual
meets Saturday and Sunday. With
the victories, Michigan extended its
* winning streak to four matches. It
has now won its last three contests
by a combined 23-5 margin.
The Wolverines head into the
backstretch of the Big Ten confer-
ence schedule hoping their winning
ways will remain intact. Less than
three weeks from now the Big Ten
championships begin in Evanston.
Saturday, amidst chilly tempera-
tures on the outdoor courts at the
Liberty Sports Complex, the Wol-

With a score.of 67, Dietz's 4-un-
der-par first round put him in the
lead. James Carson's solid first
round of 72, only one over par, also
helped the Wolverines' performance.
"We should be one of the top two
or three teams with our top two men
three under par," Carras said.
The rest of the Michigan lineup
did not fare as well as the co-cap-
tains, and with half of the day's 36
holes completed, Michigan was in
eighth with a total of 300. Michigan
sophomore Michael Lyons posted a

the top two or three
teams with our top
two men three under
par.'

79, and both senior Bob Henighan
and junior Carl Condon finished the
round with 82's.
Dietz was still the tournament
leader at 1-under-par, after shooting
a second round of 74, giving him a
two-round total of 141. Carson was
next for the Wolverines, following
ten shots behind Dietz with 151.
Both Henighan and Condon im-
proved their first-round scores by six
strokes each, with rounds of 76, to
total 158's for the first 36 holes.
For the second year in a row
Dietz was the medalist for the

to struggle
Wolverines, finishing with a three
round total of 219 - an improve-
ment of three strokes over his per-
formance last year. Condon also bet-
tered his score by three this year,
finishing in 59th with Carson at 234.
"Carl (Condor) wasn't bad if you
throw out that 82," Carras said.
"Carl has showed some promise ...
and James (Carson) is a much better
player than that."
Carson indicated that he wasn't
happy with his performance either.
"I didn't play well, it was sort of
disappointing," he said.
The other two Wolverines,
Henighan and Lyons, finished in
65th and 90th, respectively.
Carras, who was clearly unsatis-
fied with his team's performance,
said they will have to try out for
spots on the team going to Akron to
play in the Firestone Intercollegiate
next weekend.
"We'll have a three-round quali-
fier if weather permits," Carras said.
"We're trying to find a course. We
want them to play three rounds of
golf ... the only one I know (we'll
take) for sure is Anthony Dietz."
If the team actually gets to prac-
tice, these three rounds will be the
first they have played this season,
outside of their four tournaments.
Carras indicated that he expects to
see improvement.
"After Firestone - no excuses,"
he said. "We better play darn well in
our last three tournaments."

7's Beamon relies on patience,

As she stands facing the back
fence of the court, a stiff, cold
breeze picks up one more time.
Adjusting her strings, she takes a
few deep breaths and ponders-her
plan of attack on what will be her
third match point.
Just by watching her, you can
practically hear her a voice inside
her saying, "This is it. Just stay
calm and focused and the match is
yours." In holding true to word,
the next point is hers. Game, set
and match Kalei Beamon.
It's not that Beamon's inner
voice is usually as easy to
decipher as it was during
Saturday's 6-3, 6-2 victory over
Minnesota's Susan Culik.
It is because since age nine,
when Kalei picked up a racquet in
her hometown of East Lansing for

greatest asset," Michigan coach
Bitsy Ritt said. "Her mistakes
don't bother her and her winners
don't get her overly excited."
Kalei's mother, Lehua concurs.
"She's very poised and calm even
when she's losing. Her ability to
regroup when she's down is really
impressive. I think she gets that
from her father."
Whether it was Oliver
Beamon, a former college football
player at Pennsylvania, whose
mental toughness Kalei inherited
is not known for sure. One thing
for certain is that it was Oliver
who suggested to his daughter that
she try tennis.
Kalei originally started playing
tennis at age six, but quit shortly
thereafter. Three years later,
Oliver recommended that she try
it again, only this time, it clicked.
