TheMichiganwomen'stennisteam
competed over the weekend in the In-
tercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA)
Invitational at Michigan State. It was
the team's final tournament of the fall
season before Big Ten dual season play
begins in the spring.
Four higan players played in
the 64-wo singles bracket and 32-
team doubles bracket.. Bojana
Jankovich, SimoneLacherandco-cap-
tains Liz Cyganiak and JaimieFielding
battled the top players in the Midwest.
Cyganiaklostherfirst-roundmatch,
7-6,6-3 to Kim Anderson of Michigan
State.
Fielding was able to bounce back
from her 6-2,4-6,6-2 first-round loss
to Indiana's seeded player, Rachel
Epstein. Fielding won in the consola-
tion round by defeating Michigan
State's KatieLowe, 6-2,6-3, but lostin
three sets to Notre Dame's Christie
Saustman in the third round.
Lacher and Jankovich had better
luck from the-beginning, both winning
their first-round matches.
Jankovich, a freshman, continued
her good play in the second round,
beating Laura Dvorak - the No. 1
seed from Iowa and All-Big Ten hon-
oree -in three sets, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.
"While playing her, I was expect-
ing to beat her," Jankovich said. "I just
went out there and played my game."
Jankovich'stournamentendedwith
a three-set loss to Western Michigan's
Holly Taylor.
"I was very pleased with her
(Bojana)," Michigan coach Bitsy
Ritt said. "It was very positive how
she fought back in the tough
matches."
Fielding was especially pleased
with the bright performances of
Lacher and Jankovich in individual
competition.
"The tournament was really good
for two reasons," Fielding said. "Our
freshman played well and gained a lot
of confidence. Also in doubles we were
very competitive with one of the top
teams in the Midwest."
In doubles play, Fielding and
Jankovichcollaboratedtobeatadoubles
team from Illinois State in the first
round, 6-0, 6-3. They played a com-
petitive second round match against
second-seeded Indiana, but lost in
straight sets, 7-5,6-2.
"After evaluating the fall, we have
the opportunity to do well (in the
spring)," Ritt said. "We have a great
opportunity to move up in the Big Ten
standings."
This tournament marked the end of
competitionuntillateJanuary.The team
finishes fall practice this week and
begins conditioning for spring shortly
thereafter.
"The talent is really divided equally
amongst teams in ourregion this year,"
Ritt stated. "The team that wins will be

'M' first line a perfect fit
Wiseman, Oliver, Botterill establish CCHA potency

By MICHAEL ROSENBERG

DAILY HOCKEY WRITERS
Some things are good on their own,
butjustdon'tgo together. While show-
ers and hair dryers are perfectly useful
items separately, put the two together
and you'll have a good hairdo and bad
social life.
On the other hand, some things
seem tobe made foreach other. Michi-
gan forwards Jason Botterill, Brian
Wiseman and David Oliver mix better
than gin and tonic.
Only four games into the season,
Michigan's first line has established
itself as one of the best in the Central
Collegiate Hockey Association
(CCHA).
"Wiseman and Oliver have been to-
gether for the better part of three years,"
MichigancowhRedBerensonsai."'bey
know each other inside and out. Botterill,
he's found a role on that team. He's been
in the right place at the right timEand goes
to the front of the net.
"It's areal tribute toBotterill thathe

can play on that line with two great
players."
Berenson wasn't the only one rav-
ing about Botterill's five-goal perfor-
mancelastweekend. The CCHAnamed
him its offensive player of the week for
his efforts, which included the game-
tying goal with 40 seconds remaining
in the Wolverines' 5-5 tie with Bowl-
ing Green.
"I think he deserved it in terms
of his production," Berenson said.
"He scored three goals on the road
in a close game. If he would have
gotten all five goals against Notre
Dame, you might of said that it was
a little bit tainted."
Botterill, ever the humble appren-
tice, downplayed his part in the three
goals against Bowling Green, giving
credit to the marksmanship of his
linemates' passes.
"When yourlinematesworksohard
to get the puck in front of the net, it's
great," Botterill said. "You've got tobe
ready at any point in the game because
they are going to just put it on your

stick."
As dominating as the Botterill-
Wiseman-Oliver line has been in the
early season, the best may be yet to
come.
Oliver, a 35-goal scorer a year ago,
did not score this season until the third
period of the Notre Dame game Satur-
day. When he starts scoring at his regu-
lar rate, opposing teams willhave their
hands full.
"Ithink we're going tobe oneofthe
better lines in our league," Wiseman
said. "Oliver, everyone knows he can
score. He's gothis first couple now and
things are just going to be a bit easier
for him. He's going to put the puck in
from anywhere.
"When he does that they're not
going to be able to key on one guy."
And according to Oliver, a strong
performanceby Michigan's firstlineis
tantamount to CCHA prominence.
AI hope our line can play like a
leader," Oliver said. "We've got to
establish a presence. If we can do that,
our team can be successful."
