The Michigan men's tennis team is in
the fledgling stages of the season. This
weekend, three freshmen - Danny
McCain, Ben Cox and Henry Beam -
were on the road playing in the Western
Michigan Invitational in Kalamazoo,
while the upperclassmen on the team
stayed in Ann Arbor, preparing for the
season. Michigan coach Brian Eisner
has scheduled this tournament the last
few years in order to help ease the fresh-
men into the rest of the rigorous season.
All three freshmen won their first-
round matches, which they played in the
most competitive, A-Flight, division of

To win the Big Ten, senior Jake Raiton
knows the team must knock off Illinois,
which is stacked this with talent. Raiton
believes that the Illini will be ranked first
or second. He also believes that the
Notre Dame and Minnesota matches are

Senior Will Farah is very optimistic

"The freshman are fitting in well,
adjusting pretty nicely to both school

team has great talent.
"We have the potential to have a r
ly good year, if we maintain a goodw
ethic," Farah said.
