Last week, the Wolverines opened
the season with a strong showing at
the Tom Fallon Invitational Tourna-
ment in South Bend, Ind. They won a
combined total of 68 percent of their
singles matches, and senior Dan
Brakus - the team's No. 1 player -
won the top flight of the tournament.
According to Michigan head coach
Brian Eisner, the team is upbeat and
looking to continue the success of last
weekend's tournament this weekend.
However, Eisner also knows that it
won't be easy.

As with any sport, the future of a
team rests on the talent of its up-and-
coming youngsters. The Michigan
crew team is no exception.
The Wolverines' expectations are
running high with the first regatta of
the season -The Head of the Ohio -
coming up this weekend at Pittsburgh.
Many crews from across the coun-
try will be challenging Michigan this
weekend. The tentative list of com-
petitors includes Pittsburgh, Ohio
State, and the always formidable Ivy
Leaguers - Brown and Cornell.
After strong performances by last
year's novice teams, the Wolverines
look to continue the success with

Cornell are varsity teams that receive

While competing against a varsity

As the Wolverines proved in Wash-
