Michigan tennis tandem bounced
Cyganiak, Moon lose in National Clay Court Championship's 3rd round

For the Daily
Senior Sarah Cyganiak and junior
SoraMoon were defeated-in the third
round of doubles competition at the

round. The Jayhawks prevailed, 6-2, 6-
"It wasn't that Kansas was that
much better, we just made some small
mistakes that you can't make when
you are playing a team that good,"
Moon said.

the first overtime was marked by
controversy rather than scoring oppor-
tunities, as Indiana coach Joe Kelly and
sophomore defender Nicole Porter
were ejected during the period.
Both had previously received yellow
1 cards, when Porter was given a red card
following her second foul. Porter and
Kelly were ejected when Kelly appar-
ently told Porter to stay on the field in
protest. Kelly also felt that time should
have been stopped after a red card.
As for the soccer action, neither
team could put together much of an

round, Hunt and Sim had upset the No.

Taylor of Texas.
"We had a pretty good start,"
Cyganiak said of the Wolverines' per-
formance. "The competition was high-
ly competitive. Overall, I wasn't satis-
fied. Better things are on the way."
This weekend's competition was the
first Intercollegiate Tennis Association
Grand Slam event of the season. The
tournament is one of the few that give
players a chance to compete on a clay
surface, which is not usually the type
of court played on in the college level
but is frequently played on in the pro-
fessional circuit.
Cyganiak and Moon qualified into
the main draw of the competition
based on their No. I ranking in the
Midwest region and their 28th ranking
in the nation.

They were the only Michigan play-
ers to compete.
Runners-up Hunt and Sim are new
to the circut as a pair - previously
Hunt was ranked 18th in the nation.
Tournament champions Rodriquez and
Olave were ranked 49th. Participants
in all ITA tournaments are either qual-
ified by their rankings or are invited to
"In the first match we played really
well, and were having a lot of fun,"
Moon said. "Overall, I was happy with
how we did."
With the season in its early stages,
both players feel that they have much
to work on.
"We need to work on our overheads
and executing the fundamentals bet-
ter," Cyganiak said. "We need to make
the other team work more instead of
giving it away."
Moon feels that next weekend's

tournament, the Eck Classic in Notre
Dame, will give the duo more playing
time and a chance to improve their
communication skills.
Cyganiak participated in the singles
competition earlier in the week but
was eliminated in the qualifying
round. In her first match, Cyganiak
defeated Luanne Spadea of Duke, 6-1,
2-6, 6-3. In the second match, top-
seeded Olga Novikova of Penn State
beat Cyganiak, 6-0, 6-3.
"The first match I had a good win,
and (then) I lost to a girl that I had beat
before," Cyganiak said. "There is a lot
of room for improvement."
The next ITA tournament that the
pair is scheduled to participate in is the
NCAA All-American Championship
in Pacific Palisades, Calif., Oct. 24-27.
"The season looks pretty open,"
Cyganiak said. "Anything can happen,
there are a lot of opportunities."

McArdle went down in the second half
with a possible hyperextended knee,
and freshman midfielder Jen Stahl
aggravated recurring soreness in her
knee earlier in the game.
Like most Big Ten games, this one
proved to be physical.
"The difference between the Ohio
State game and this game is we weren't
physical against Ohio State and they
were all over us," Belkin said. "(Today)
we just bunkered down and just fought
back, and I was pretty pleased with
Michigan's 2-0 loss to Ohio State (1-
1, 7-2) on Friday in Columbus, Ohio,
ended the Wolverine's five game
unbeaten streak.
In sharp contrast to the Indiana
game, the Buckeyes shutdown the
Michigan offense, outshooting the
Wolverines, 17-3. None of Michigan's
shots were on goal.
Ohio State midfielder Becky
Borchers put the Buckeyes ahead for
good when she scored from the middle
of the penalty box on a long pass from
defender Jennifer Plante at 23:00.
Midfielder Katy Traeger headed in
the other Buckeye goal 10 /minutes
later off a cross from midfielder Jodie
The Wolverines next travel to Seattle

Sollenberger in Paradise
UCLA, MicA i:gan:
Traditions z' excellence
'm sorry. The T-shirt just doesn't work. You know, the one that has
Harvard: The Michigan of the East inscripted on it. Now, I know it's just
a joke, and a popular one, too. Every campus bookstore sells the shirt°
and about one in three students own one. But come on, Michigan can't
compete academically with Harvard anymore than Harvard can compete
athletically with Michigan.
I think I'm going to market a new shirt.
A shirt with the words UCLA: The Michigan of the West printed in big'
blue letters. Or maybe Michigan: The UCLA of the Midwest.
You see, these sayings make much more sense, because Michigan is
UCLA and UCLA is Michigan. Both are large public schools, are first-rate
academic institutions and have outstanding football traditions.
Whoa, wait a minute - you might say. Outstanding football traditions?
How can you say that the Bruins have an outstanding football tradition
after the way they played against Michigan on Saturday?
You have a point. UCLA did look like it was in its first year of Division
1-A ball against the Wolverines. The game marked the Bruins worst loss
since California blasted them, 48-12, almost four years ago.
But a single terrible outing certainly does not destroy a program.
Last year, the Bruins were ranked fifth nationally with 36 former players
on NFL rosters. In the past nine years, UCLA has produced 48 draft selec-
tions, including the No. I pick in 1989, the No. 2 pick in 1991 and the No.
4 pick in 1996.
UCLA has one of the premier football programs and is one of the best'
public schools in the nation, just like Michigan.
In fact, if you are a top high school football prospect, and (God forbid)
you care about academics, the two best colleges for you are UCLA and
Michigan. In a 1994 Time Magazine survey, UCLA and Michigan ranked
No. I and No. 2, respectively, in two different polls - academic and athlet-
ic institutions combined, and athletic programs.
"I believe that the most important thing that our players can accomplish
is to get an education and a degree from UCLA," UCLA coach Bob Toledo
said. "We will do everything that we possibly can do to help our student-
athletes achieve that goal."
Michigan coach Lloyd Carr has echoed the same words about his schpol
a million times.
So what? you may ask. Every coach in the world says this stuff
True. But unlike the majority of college football coaches, no one has to
stifle a laugh when Toledo and Carr talk about academics and their football
In the Time survey, UCLA and Michigan ranked No. 2 and No. 3, respec,
tively, in Division I-A football graduation rates. The Bruins' team gradua-
tion rank was actually higher than the UCLA student body's. Now, don't get
me wrong. Toledo and Carr do not lose sleep over their team's GPAs. They
are paid to produce winners on the field, not in the chemistry lab. Carr
never starts a press conference by saying: "Scott Dreisbach was spectacular
last week - he got an 'A' on his physics test." By the same token, Toledo
never says: "Thank God for Skip Hicks. The young running back has a
great future - as a chemical engineer."
Carr and Toledo want to win as much as anybody. It's just that they donft
compromise academics for their football goals. As UCLA's and Michigan's
football graduation rates demonstrate, the two coaches don't recruit many
marginal students.
When Michigan meets UCLA, for the most part, student-athletes play
student-athletes. Michigan against UCLA is not a shootout between crimi-
nals, as is the case when many other big-name college football teams hook
