ATHLETE OF THE WEEK

By Ryan Soin

There is an emerging class of athletes
on the Michigan campus. You won't see

it's not because they are embarrassed.
Their sport failed to receive club status.
These new athletes have embraced
-the sport of racquetball. The game pits
two players against each other inside a
small room where they fire a small blue
ball off of a wall trying to win points.
. "You're pretty much always on
offense and defense," sophomore
Robert Fowler said. "It's a continuous
'flow of action and excitement."
Despite not having a club designation,
the sport has received attention from the

While Milner puts his heart into beat-
ing Jhaveri, Nathan's heart is one beat
away from ending it all. Jhaveri suffers
from a heart murmur, creating the possi-
bility that every game could be his last.
"In theory (I could die)," Jhaveri said.
"But I am not a wuss."
Despite what Milner calls "child-like
competitiveness," Jhaveri keeps a level
head against stiffer competition.
"I would imagine there are some
good players," Jhaveri said. "I have a lot
to learn."
The table is set, and the competi-
tive racquetball fires are burning.
Someone out there will send Nathan
Jhaveri an e-mail and challenge him,
proving once and for all if he
deserves a top-10 ranking.

Why: Gandy, who served as a janitor at Crisler Arena over the summer,
cleaned up in Evanston with 7-of12 shooting for 22 points (6-for-6
from the free-throw line). She also had three steals and five assists.
