The Michigan tennis teams mir-
rored each other with their perfor-
mances this season, as both clubs made
postseason play and individuals drew
rave reviews.
The women's squad (9-2 Big Ten,
13-4 overall) came up a little bit short
* its quest for a first-ever conference
Wtle, ending up in second place. Michi-
gan entered the Big Ten Champion-
ships as the No.1 seed, but Indiana won
the tournament by upending the Wol-
verines in the final match, 5-2.
"They just seemed to step up and
perform better," team member Sarah
Cyganiak said. "It just came together
for them on that day."
Michigan did manage to qualify
Or the 20-team NCAA Champion-
ship field, but was defeated in the first
round.
Despite the end-of-the-year set-
backs, a few Wolverines garnered
postseason honors. Cyganiak won Big
Ten Freshman of the Year and she,
along with Bojana Jankovic, were
named to the All-Big Ten Conference
Team. Coach Bitsy Ritt also received
aise, as she was named Big Ten
Woach of the Year.
The men's team also made the fi-
nals of the Big Ten Championships

ANASTASIA BANICKI/Daily
Michigan's Dan Brakus ended his career in May with 100 singles victories.

and finished with a 9-2 conference
record, quite an improvement over last
year's eighth-place showing.
However, Minnesota won both the
title and their 39th-straight Big Ten
match by shutting out Michigan, 4-0.
The Golden Gophers, the tournament
hosts, were the only conference team
to beat the Wolverines this season.

A week later, 15th-ranked Notre
Dame ended Michigan's season at the
NCAA Region IV qualifying tourna-
ment, beating the Wolverines for the
second time this year, 4-0. Michigan's
Dan Brakus, the Big Ten Player of the
Year, made the NCAA tournament
singles division but was knocked out
in the first round by the No. 2 seed.

IERRINGTON
Continued from page 3F
still hard to believe.
However, an ominous sign has
Speared and - for the sake of Gary
Moeller's employment - it needs to
be stopped. During spring practice in
April, many of the players talked about
putting 1993 behind them and look-
ing to the future. This can only be
considered bad news.
The Wolverines need to remem-
ber 1993 every time they put on their
pads between now and November.
Eo one on the 100-plus member team
should be allowed to forget the pain-
ful lessons of last season for only with
that knowledge can Michigan pre-
vent it from happening again.
Every senior - specifically
Collins and Wheatley - should be

constantly reminding the underclass-
men how miserable 1993 was, mak-
ing sure that it is not treated as an
aberration, but as something that can
happen any year that the Wolverines
decide to rest on their laurels. It is
simply too easy to think, "Well, we've
got Collins and Wheatley back, plus
the line has a whole year under its
belt. We'll be fine." That's what hap-
pened to Ohio State in the 1980s and
the Buckeyes have not seen the inside
of the Rose Bowl in 10 years.
Two seasons ago, Moeller put a
number five on each player's Rose
Bowl watch in an attempt to have
them focus on the quest for five
straight titles. If I were Moeller, I
would do something similar, painting
"1993-8-4" on everything in sight so
that each and every player under-
stands that that type of performance
will not be acceptable this year. As

the saying goes, those who forget the
past are doomed to repeat it. Moeller
won't forget the past, but his players
just might.
Winning isn't easy and Moeller
should be highly commended for hav-
ing his first three Wolverine teams
win the Big Ten, especially with the
pressure of replacing a legend like Bo
Schembechler. With the home opener
against Boston College just right
around the corner and with every
player on the sideline being a Moeller
recruit, it is even more important for
him to show that he can maintain
Michigan's winning football tradi-
tion.
Yes, it is asking a lot of this man
(after all he did graduate from Ohio
State) but that is just part of coaching
at Michigan, where the combination
of football and Big Ten champion-
ships is considered the rule.
