The previous Michigan record was
held by Alison Noble and
Szczesniak, who both had single-
match attack percentages of .650.
The arena record of .681 had
belonged to Michigan State's Becky
Belanger. That record stood for nine

said. "I just went out tonight and

I swung and I tried to make them

Chase's effort paid off. She domi-
nated the Gophers' defense and
scored at crucial moments.
"It was as dominating as (any) out-

seen," Giovanazzi said. "That was
incredible. Anytime we needed a
side-out or anything, she put it

So far this season, the Wolverines
have been looking for a comfortable
replacement for All-America setter
Linnea Mendoza, who graduated last
year. After Friday night, they may
have found it.
Sophomore Alija Pittenger took
over Mendoza's role in the game,
returning the Wolverines to a single-
setter offense. In previous matches,
Pittenger had been sharing the
responsibility with freshman
Shannon Melka.
"Changing the offense and having
just one setter may have made a dif-
ference," Giovanazzi said.
"There are a lot of seniors on this
team and there's a comfort zone that
we played this offense the entire time

that Linnea was here. We're used to
that, but more than anything it was
just a great performance as a team."
Additionally, Giovanazzi credits
his team's intensity on defense for
making the biggest difference in the
"I thought the blocking was great, a
lot to deflections. It made our
defense better," Giovanazzi said.
"The most key thing was that we
sided-out consistently and that we
did well on serve and receive."
The Wolverines will use the
momentum from Friday's match as
they head to Happy Valley next
Friday to face No.I Penn State.
"I think it's a big momentum
builder for what's coming up next
weekend," Szczesniak said.
"We didn't come out playing not to
lose, we came out playing to win."

'M' tennis big, bright
1eep in ieart of Texas



By Nick Felzen
For the Daily
The Michigan men's tennis team is
playing its first match of the season in
the All-American Tournament in
Austin, Texas. So far, the squad is more
than holding its own.
"I am very pleased with the day, our
quys beat a lot of good players,"
Michigan coach Brian Eisner said.
Saturday, three Michigan players
won their first two rounds of singles.
Michigan's Will Farah defeated Kolie
Van Zyl of Alabama Birminyham, 6-7,
6-3, 6-3, before beating Jon Pontikas of
Texas-San Antonio, 6-3, 6-3.
Michigan's Matt Wright downed both
Ron Hamdan of Nebraska, 6-2, 6-1 and
Dan Healey of Mississippi State, 6-2,
3. Michigan's Henry Beam cruised in
s first-round match against T.S.
Ahrend of East Central, 6-0, 6-0, and

then destroyed Fank Tadej of Georgia
State 6-4, 6-0.
Michigan's Brad McFarlane won his
three-set match against Matt Bender of
Wichita State, 1-6, 6-3, 6-1. But
McFarlane lost his second-round match
to Bruno Puzzi of Southwest Louisiana,
7-5, 6-1. Michigan's Ben Cox beat Todd
Petty of Texas-San Antonio, 6-1, 6-4,
and lost to Jose Lieberman of Miami
(Fla.), 6-4, 6-4.
Nonetheless, Cox's close match with
Lieberman was impressive because
Lieberman is a top-ranked junior-level
Michigan's Danny McCain lost to
Ron Aranburo of Texas A&M, 6-2, 6-2,
and Michigan's Jake Raiton lost to Joey
Michalsky of Baylor, 6-3, 6-4.
Michigan was even more successful
in doubles matches, going four-for-four
on the first day.
