Three Days Only:
U of MGolf Shop 500 E.

By Mark Francescutti
Daily Sports Writer
After impressive play at the Rolex
Region IV tournament three weeks ago,
the Michigan men's tennis team thought
it was the No. I team in the region. Then,
the Wolverines would be able to mark
Feb. 22 on their calendars, because the
top-ranked team in the region is invited to
the National Indoor Championships in
Austin, Texas.
But the regional rankings are decided
by an ITA committee headed by rotating
coaches, and Illinois head coach Craig
Tiley just happened to be the head of the
group-
The Wolverines, whose statistics were
far better than any other team at the Rolex

regionals, were shocked at seeing a No. 4
next to their name. Illinois was first, fol-
lowed by Northwestern and Notre Dame.
While there is no set ranking criteria,
the Rolex regional tournament has always
been the most important factor, because it
was the only tournament that brought
together every team in the region.
Preseason rankings and other tourna-
ments also affect the rankings, but there
was inconsistency this year.
The singles and doubles rankings were
greatly affected by the results of region-
als, whereas it did not affect the team
rankings.
Northwestern senior Alex Witt, who
won the tournament, was No. 1 in the
regional singles rankings.

Amr-

L

T Michigan junior William Farah, w
wasn't expected to be ranked at 'ttie
beginning of the season, turned in a sea-
son-best performance at regionals to earn
him No. 15.
In total, Michigan saturated the sings
rankings with five players in the top 30
- Arvid Swan (6), Matt Wright i,
Brook Blain (12), Farah (15) and Dave
Paradzik (21)}.
Ranked. in doubles were Blain anj
Swan (5) and Wright and Jake Ralf~
(19).
Adding to the inconsistency was N"&r
Dame. which had only three ranked'sin-
gles players - compared to Michigan's
five - but was one spot higher than' t1ie
Wolverines.
"In past years, the main criteiato
determine the rankings was Rolex, yet
for the team rankings, they didn't see it
that way' said Michigan assistant co~a
Dan Goldberg.
Michigan was ranked No. 51 in1 the
nation after a poor post-season petfi~r-
mance last year due to injuries. But "on
the other hand, Michigan has excelled in
all the individual team tournaments 'tis
fall.
It appears that two out of three wasn't
enough to please the committee.
