M' netters confront tragedy before tough opponents

Former Northwestern
cornerback sentenced
CHICAGO (AP) - Former
Northwestern cornerback Dwight
Brown was sentenced yesterday to 30
days in jail for lying twice to a federal
grand jury investigating gambling
among athletes on the Big Ten campus.
"This was the worst mistake of my
Ofe," the 27-year-old Brown told U.S.
District Judge Charles Norgle before the
sentence was imposed.
Norgle said it was a pity that Brown,
who has never been in trouble with the
law before, and was not implicated in
betting on Northwestern games or fix-
ing games, will have to be separated
from his 9-year-old son.
But he said that lying to a federal grand
jury twice was such a serious offense that
_probation was out of the question, even
_*ough Brown overcame a fatherless
childhood in Detroit's inner city, had an
excellent academic record and has held a
steady job since graduation.
Norgle did say that he would not
object to allowing Brown to serve his
sentence on weekends and thus stay on
the job.
In. his - plea agreement, Brown
acknowledged lying to the grand jury in
W,95 and 1998 when he said that he had
'~ver placed bets on football and bas-
ketball games with campus bookie
Brian Ballarini, and that he knew noth-
ing about betting by roommate Gregory
Gill.

Senior Erryn Weggenman made her
amazing recovery from a possible per-
manent injury to her wrist earlier this
year, and resumed her winning contribu-
tions on the court more than a month
ago.
Now, Weggenman and the Michigan
women's tennis team must once again
handle adversity. But this time it's not
just a wrist injury, it's something that hits
closer to the heart and will last for eter-
nity.
Weggenman's brother, Ryan, was
killed instantly in a weather related car
accident March 5 - shocking the team,
and sending the Wolverines into sudden
mourning for their teammate and friend's
loss.
Ryan, 20, was a sophomore and lead-
ing golfer at College of the Desert in
Palm Desert, Calif.
Erryn and Ryan were extremely close,
and talked almost every day - forming
a relationship similar to best friends.
"They (Weggenmans) have a very
close family," Michigan coach Bitsy Ritt
said. "She had a really special relation-
ship with her brother - it's tragic. It's
very, very' upsetting to see Erryn so
upset"
Ritt and senior co-captains Danielle
Lund and Brooke Hart made the 2,000-
mile trek out West for the funeral last
Thursday - giving their support and
condolences to the entire family.
"We're glad we were able to go," Ritt
said. "We wanted to show her we care."

It is unclear when Weggenman, who is
staying with her family in Oregon, will
rejoin her teammates. She is not expect-
ed to be back for this weekend's matches.
The rest of the team continued its
workouts during the off-week, with some
players dealing with nagging injuries, not
to mention an emotional roller coaster.
Junior Szandra Fuzesi (groin), sopho-
more Jen Vaughn (leg) and freshman
Joann Musgrove (foot) practiced sporad-
ically, while treating their physical
wounds - with their emotional ones

running even deeper.
"We all are very sad about what hap-
pened to Erryn, Fuzesi said.
"Probably what happened will bring
the team closer together - as we try the
difficult task of focusing our attention
back to tennis"
Teammate Lund echoed her feelings.
"This shows that some things are more
important than tennis;' Lund said.
Insignificant as they may be right now,
the team's next two matches at the Varsity
Tennis Center will challenge them to

focus on the task at hand. Michigan bat-
tles No. 19 Tennessee this Friday night at
6 p.m.; and then must return to grinding
out the points on Saturday to host con-
ference foe Minnesota at 1 p.m.
The Volunteers have owned the Big
Ten of late, dominating the conference in
their last 20 meetings - going 19-I.
That includes victories this year against
Purdue, Indiana and No. 31 Ohio State.
The Golden Gophers are red-hot, rid-
ing a four-match winning streak into Ann
Arbor - while the Wolverines (5-3) are

trying to keep from falling to 0-3 in-the
conference.
Besides missing Weggenman, the
Wolverines could be without Vaughn,
whose status is doubtful for this weekend
due to her leg injury.
Both are doubles players, so their
absences could cause Ritt to revamp the
doubles combos once again, but most
will remain the same as they were in the
team's most recent match - when the
Michigan tandems swept the doubles
competition..
