Youthful resurgence to lead 'M'

women netter

Freshman class of Hardin, Hart, Lund and Weggenman ready to step in and contribute during I

By Pranay Reddy
Daily Sports Writer
After ending last season decimat-
ed by injuries, the Michigan
women's tennis team is back this
year revitalized with youth.
With this influx of youth, however,
comes inexperience.
Four of the eight players on this
year's squad are freshmen, and only
two of the four returning Wolverines
are upperclassmen, senior Sarah
Cyganiak and junior Sora Moon.
And Cyganiak and Moon will have
to lead the Wolverines, considering

the experience shared between the
two.
Cyganiak is returning this year fol-
lowing a spectacular junior year, capped
off by earning All-Big Ten honors for a
third consecutive season.
Cyganiak also joined Moon in dou-
bles play this past year in Tallahassee,
Fla., for the NCAA Championships.
The tandem lost a three-set match to
Washington's Katherine Costain and
Kori Sosnowsky and finished the year
ranked No. 31 in the nation.
Nonetheless, Cyganiak and Moon
were almost unstoppable in conference
match play, going 12-1 last year.

Moon, who joined Cyganiak on the
All-Big Ten team, struggled last year in
singles play after being moved up to the
No. 2 slot.
Her win total dropped from her
freshman year from 25 to 14, when she
played the middle spots in the
Michigan lineup, against weaker com-
petition.
Moon may benefit, however, from
the experience gained from playing the
No. 2 slot last season.
So with both upperclassmen already
having gone through the motions of a
few seasons of match play, it will be
up to the second-year players to avoid
a sophomore slump. Both Tumeka
Harris and Jennifer Boylan had solid
freshmen years at Michigan.
Harris returns to the team this year
with plenty of match experience. She

played the most singles matches last
year (33) while compiling a 15-18
record.
She competed primarily at No. 3 sin-
gles.
Boylan started strong for the
Wolverines last year, compiling a 6-4
overall record in singles play, before
suffering a season-ending knee injury.
The four incoming freshmen will
have their work cut out for them this
year and will all be asked to step up
immediately.
Freshman Tenly Hardin joins Harris
as the only two Floridians on the roster
this year.
The Boca Raton native finished third
at the highly competitive Florida high
school state championships in her
senior year.
Freshman Brooke Hart falls into

place with the rest of her rookie team-
mates, shown by her dominating prep
record.
Over her high school career, Hart
compiled a gaudy 120-11 record, as
well as two second-place finishes at the
National Hardcourt 18's and the
National Indoor Tournament 18's.
A trailblazer at the high school level,
freshman Danielle Lund became the
first player ever to win the central
Massachusetts girls' district champi-
onship all four years of high school.
She also boasts an undefeated career
record in season competition - 71-0.

She rounded out her outstanding ;
high school career by helping her team

ten minutes of the game, yet still fail-
ing to score a goal.
With less than three minutes to
play, Michigan's Meredith Franden
ended the drought for the
Wolverines by deflecting in team-
mate Bree Derr's free hit. The ball
somehow squirted past Eagle goal-
keeper Sarah Egnaczyk to knot the
contest at two.
As the game continued to wind
down, the Wolverines were still
looking for someone to step up and
end the game. Finally, attacker Julie
Flachs converted a penalty corner

years.
With all these high school heroes in
the fray for the Wolverines, the chances
of stumbling along the way seem small.
Yet after last year's season-ending
injuries to then-senior Angie Popek and
Boylan, the Wolverines know that any-
thing can happen during the long cam-
paign and their depth will be a tremen-
dous resource.
At that time, the Wolverines were
forced to add two walk-ons to an
already small roster.
Just as last season, inexperience
could pose a major threat to Michigan's
chances of regaining the Big Ten
crown.
Yet, with talent abounding on this
year's squad and leaders Cyganiak and
Moon in place, the chance for improve-
ment this year is strong.
with 1:29 remaining to put the
Wolverines ahead, 3-2.
"It felt good to score (the winning
goal)," Flachs said afterwards, "I con
centrated on this (corner shot),
because on the last one, I didn't get a
good shot off."
In the final seconds,
midfielder/defender Sandra Cabrera
sealed the victory for the Wolverines,
preventing a one-on-one situation
between goalkeeper Helber and an
oncoming Eagle attacker.
Overall, Michigan's attack looked,
strong, outshooting the Eagles, 17-14.
In addition, the Wolverines dominate
the number of penalty corners, rack-
ing up 13 to Boston College's seven.
