For the Daily
Maybe practicing for hours at hitting
tennis balls isn't your idea of fun.
But for senior Arvid Swan and the rest
of the Michigan men's tennis team, it's as
routine as brushing their teeth - espe-
cially after a summer spent preparing for
the fall season.
"Most ofthe guys played over the sum-
mer," Swan said. "There is minor-league
tennis where some guys played while oth-
ers played on the collegiate level.'
This week, Swan and senior Brook
Blain competeintheNational IndoorClay
Court Tournament in Baltimore, where
they will try to improve their individual
"It's the first of four major tourna-
ments," Swan said. "We're excited and
Theupcomingtourament will feature
the nation's best competition.
"This tourney should be very compet-
itive because it is one of the four major
events," Swan said."So everyone's trying
to improve their rankings.'
The tournament sets the stage for the
upcoming fall season. The fall season is
not a team season - none of the fall
matches affect team standings.
Swan's first and foremost interest is to
have an enjoyable collegiate season
while contributing leadership and skill to
the team. Though each player has his
own agenda for his career, Swan
believes that collegiate tennis is still a
"Coming to Michigan, the young play-
er has to make an adjustment,' Swan
said. "You're used to being on your own.
But here tennis is a team sport in that
each match counts as a team point, and
every teammate is pulling for you.
"You're not just representing yourself,
you're representing the University, and
it's your responsibility to represent it in
the best way possible.'
Playing for a high-exposure team like
Michigan only enhances the Wolverines'
professional tennis opportunities.
"Most of the guys have potential to
play after college," Swan said. "After
putting in so much time, it's something
most people want to do."
Swan hopes to succeed as a profes-
sional athlete, buthe knows his priorities.
"It's not too bad to juggle everything,
once you realize you have to make sacri-
fices," he said. "So long as it's school
first, sports second, things work out."
Tennis won't be the only focus for the
Wolverines in Baltimore, however. Swan
and Blain hope to take in an Orioles
Baseball aside, Swan looks toward a
rewarding senior year in tennis, concen-
trating on each match as it comes up -
beginning with this week's National
Indoor Clay Court Tournament.

the several juniors on the team to pro-
vide leadership in races as well as in
"The upperclassmen pushed me in
practice," said freshman Erin White, a
middle-distance runner like Guellet.
"And I'm learning how to use them dur-
ing a race to have them pull me along,"
White finished sixth for the Wolverines
and 14th overall in a field of 55.
Despite the confidence gained by
Michigan after this weekend's perfor-
mance, the Wolverines know they need
to keep their focus and continue to run
hard. The meet this weekend was on a
fast course, after a weekend off, and
against regional opponents.
Upcoming meets will be on slower
courses, against faster opponents a*
will most likely have national implica-
tions. Injuries hampered the
Wolverines' season last year, but this
fall, they are healthy, and hungry, too.
"I see us really putting it together this
fall," McGuire said.
