The future of Michigan women's ten-
nis is looking brighter. The Wolverines
opened the new season with several
lopsided victories behind the strength
of the teams' newest members.
This weekend the team played host to
Bowling Green, Cincinnati, Depaul and
Western Michigan at the annual
Wolverine Invitational.
Michigan dominated the entire event,
losing only one match the entire week-
end. Both of the singles flights finals
and the doubles final on Sunday pitted
Michigan teammates against each
other.
"The players expected to do well -
the coaches expected to do well."
Michigan coach Bitsy Ritt said. "We
still have things to work on, but I am
very pleased with the overall effort."
There were some fresh faces leading
the charge for the Wolverines this
weekend. Freshmen Chrissie Nolan and
Kavitha Tipirneni competed against

each other in the doubles final as well
as in the top singles final. Nolan pre-
vailed in the singles match by a score of
6-3, 3-6, 6-3. In the doubles final,
Tipirneni teamed with Jen Duprez to
defeat Nolan and fellow freshmen Kim
Plaushines 9-8 (7-4).
Ritt was delighted with the perfor-
mance of the freshmen.
"This is a great freshmen class.
Three of the four came in very highly
recruited. They really had a great tour-
nament.
After losing three quality seniors, the
program really needed a strong entering
class. Brooke Hart, Danielle Lund and
Erryn Weggenman "really did a lot for
our program. It's great to have these
girls to fill in the holes they left."
"There is an adjustment to the col-
lege level, but I am really looking for-
ward to it," Tipirneni said. "We have a
lot of depth this year. If we all stay
healthy, we could be really successful."
On October 14, team members will
travel to Pacific Palisades, Calif. for the
ITA All-America Championship.
