Michigan against North Carolina.
When uttered, one tends to conjure
images of the Spperdome, Donald
Williams and fatal time outs.
Friday, the Wolverines and Tar
Heels squared off, but it was the
schools' women's tennis teams that
were dueling. There was no
Superdome; instead it was the Cone-
Kenfield Tennis Center.
And this time, North Carolina did
not go home wearing the nets. The only
net that the Tar Heels found was the
bottom of it, as Michigan dominated
the meet from start to finish, 8-1.
The Wolverines (5-1 Big Ten, 10-
6 overall) have been on the road since
early February, yet the voyage to
Chapel Hill did not seem to affect the
"I think that everyone has handled
traveling really well," team co-cap-
tain Liz Cyganiak said. "It hasn't af-
fected anyone's play in any way."
North Carolina's only victory
came from fifth singles player Scotti
Thomas, who defeated Michigan's
Liz Cyganiak, 7-5, 6-2.
Liz's sister, Sarah, fared better in
her No. 1 singles match, ousting Tar
Heel Nicole Transou in a grueling 6-
4, 6-7, 6-3 battle.
The dual meet had already been
decided by the singles matches, but
the teams continued the competition,
though switching to a pro-set format.
Michigan continued its success,
capturing all three doubles matches.
Wolverines Tara Graff and Allison
Schlonsky teamed to defeat Transou
and Gurney in the third doubles match,
Saturday, the Wolverines pressed
on, traveling to Williamsburg, Va.,
for their dual meet against William &
With a No. 44 national ranking,
the Tribe was seeking to upset the
No. 42 Michigan team, banking on
its recent five-meet win streak. The
streak was soon extended to six as
William & Mary squeaked out a 5-
4 victory against the tired Wolver-
The Tribe bounced out to a 4-2
lead after the singles competition. The
Wolverines did not go down without
a fight, however, as three of their four
losses were in laborious three-set
Angie Popek and Simone Lacher
were the only singles winners for
Michigan, both defeating their oppo-
nents in straight sets.
With three doubles matches to go,
the Wolverines were still in the meet.
Sisters Liz and Sarah Cyganiak
quickly upended their opponents 7-5,
6-4, and Lacher and co-captain Jamie
Fielding were soon to follow with a 6-
2, 6-0 rout of their own.
With the meet tied at 4-4, Michi-
gan found itself in the driver's seat, as
Popek and freshman Bojana Jankovic
led Katrin Guenther .and Allegra
Miholland 7-5, 4-3 in the deciding
Guenther and Milholland fought
back, however, snaring the second set
in a tiebreaker, 7-6 (7-3). With the
momentum in their favor, Guenther
and Milholland closed out the match
in the final set, 6-4.
Road weary and wounded, the
Wolverines returned home to recu-
perate from the exhausting weekend,
only readying to leave again this Sat-
urday for yet another road dual meet
- this time at Penn State.

"(Marinucci's) always been toldthat
he couldn't skate well enough to suc-
ceed in Division I hockey," Minne-

"He's overcome that obstacle because
he had heart and determination."
