Men's tennis crushes Eastern Michigan, 7-0
By JENNIFER DUBERSTEIN
FOR THE DAILY
"There is nothing like winning,
and there is nothing like winning de-
cisively," Michigan men's tennis
coach Brian Eisner said after the
Wolverines' 7-0 victory over Eastern
Michigan on Friday. Michigan won
the six singles matches and two of the
three doubles to shutout the Eagles.
This match-up was not expected
to be difficult because EMU came
into the match with a 0-5 record.
"Psychologically when you go into
a match like this it is not always easy
to play real well," Eisner said.
Although the match was not piv-
otal, the Wolverines "came away with
a lot of positives."
"The point is to get the most out of
a match like this and still improve your
game and still play well," Eisner said.
The Wolverines have been work-
ing on their concentration levels and
focus, but still feel that there is room
"We knew we were going to win,"
sophomore Peter Pusztai said. "It was
hard to focus."
"The mental game is not some-
thing that is going to improve in one
or two games," junior Adam Wager
A key goal for this match was to
work out the kinks in the doubles
game. The only set lost was in third
doubles, played by junior Mike Nold
and freshman Andy Yani.
"Our two players were a little tight
and they wanted to play well," Eisner
said. "So, it was one of those things
where we couldn't get it going. Our
total effort was working on doubles.
Our doubles has to continue to get
better and better because with Minne-
sota and Iowa coming up, we really
have to win the doubles match."
In two weeks, Michigan will be-
gin its Big Ten season against Minne-
sota. The Wolverines will be prepar-
ing for their upcoming schedule.
"We are focusing mainly on indi-
viddal work and any problems any-
one has with their game," Wager said.
Still the outlook for the Big Ten is
"I feel confident that if we do
improve we'll be right in the thick of
it to have a chance to win the confer-
ence championships," Eisner said.
"We need to be ready to play every
match no matter who you are playing
or whether you are at home or on the

When a team is on aroll, it doesn't
expect anything to get in its way.
Friday night, in the first meet of a

nastics team suffered an injury to a
Senior Wendy Wilkinson, who has
been sidelined for weeks with a knee
injury, attempted to help the team by
defying the odds and finishing her
final season by competing solely on
the uneven bars.
Wilkinson seemingly had over-
come her injury by turning in an im-
pressive performance on the bars.
However, her season was shattered
when she came down too hard on the
dismount and her knee buckled.
"She's trying so hard to come back
and compete the bars for us," junior
All-American Beth Wymer said. "It's
really upsetting for not only her but

The Wolverines also dominated
the all-around scores, sweeping the
top three spots.
Other high finishers for the Wolves
were Kelly Carfora and Dianna
Ranelli in the floor exercise, coming
in second and third respectively with
scores of 9.825 and 9,775. On the
balance beam, McDonald captured
second with a 9.75, while Wilkinson
and sophomore Tina Miranda tied for
third in the uneven bars with a 9.575.
Sophomore All-American Wendy
Marshall captured second on the vault
with a 9.85 while Carfora claimed
third with a 9.775.

The team has been trying very
hard to get the Board of Regents to
reevaluate its case.
"We go in every month and we
ose new questions," Toni said. "We
pose new solutions to have this team
stay financially funded and a part of
the University and yet no one re-
sponds to us."
Darden and the team have re-
searched the financial side of cutting
the program. Since the men's gym-
nastics program only accounts for less
than one percent of this year's total
Athletic Department budget the team
has trouble understanding why they
were chosen to be cut.
"We're asking just to survive,"
Toni said. "We don't have an adver-
tising budget and no promotion bud-
get. We're not asking for it back, we

just want the team to exist.
"We can do it on our own. We
proved it this year."
The team has enjoyed competing
at the University, but is unhappy with
the politics of the issue. They have
not been given the opportunity to
present their case opposing the
department's decision to cut the pro-
