The Big Ten-leading Michigan
Wolverines split a twin-bill yesterday
with visiting Eastern Michigan at cool
and windy Fisher Stadium, notching a
4-3 win in the first game before suc-
cumbing, 10-6, ina sloppy nightcap.
Freshman righthander Scott Elam"
(4-0) owned Eastern Michigan (14-31)
for the first five innings of the opener,
shutting out the Hurons on three hits
and fanning five. Elan didn't give up a
hit until the fifth inning, when he
allowed three singles but still manged
toescape with a shutout intact.
The Wolverines, (26-13-1 overall), af-
ter being mowed down with equal effec-
tivenss by Huron starter and loser
Randy Gorgon (2-9) through three
frames, got things going in the fourth.
Senior George Foussianes, who began
the day witha .357 batting average and
went one-for-three in each contest,

baseman Pat Zureich's head into right
field. After Eastern's shortstop,

straight one-out grounders into a bases-
loaded situation, pinch hitter Fred Er-
dmann lined a single into center,
scoring a pair. Then freshman Jeff
Jacobson laced a two-out shot to left,
putting Michiganin front, 3-0.
Wolverine coach Bud Middaugh
replaced Elam with fellow freshman
hurler Steve Ontiveros to start the six-
th, and Huron bats began to liven.
Audie Cole singled back through the
box, Simmons doubled down the left
field line, and Greg Howe launched a
triple over Michigan centerfielder Greg -
Schulte's head tomake thescore 3-2.-
Michigan came back with a tally in
the bottom of the sixth, but back-to-
back doubles by Eastern Michigan's

have solidified what many had expec-
ted to be an inexperienced, vulnerable
group of moundsmen. The sluggers
have contributed their fair share to the
cause, as well. Michigan is hitting at a
.311 clip in conference play, with senior
Chuck Wagner (.438) and sophomore
Schulte (.429) paving the way.
Middaugh isn't surprised or over-
whelmed by his club's success thus far,
however. "I'm happy we're 9-1, but I'd
be happier if we were 10-0. I don't look
at the youth standpoint. If we don't
execute, it's not because we're young,
and if we do execute, it's because the
concentration is there.
"If we execute and we're fundamen-
tally sound," the first-year coach con-
cluded, "then we're gonna win a lot of

mistakes today, and they were costly,"
Middaugh continued. "It's a little dif-

starter. He didn't throw horrible, but
he's thrown better."

Cagers cap recruits... grid stars honored

Michigan basketball coach Bill
Frieder completed a highly successful
first-year recruiting campaign two.
Weeks ago when he signed 6-1 guard
Dan Pelekoudas of Downers Grove, Ill.,
to a letter of intent.
Pelekoudas, a good ballhandler who
ranked first in his graduating class with
a 4.0 GPA, became the fifth prep player
to sign a letter of intent with the
Wolverines. Centers Tim McCormick
and Jon Antonides, and forwards Dean
Hopson and M. C. Burton also accepted
full scholarships.
"THIS HAS to be one of the best
recruiting years we've had in the last 15
years," said a very satisfied Frieder.

"We now have two very good big men,
two great forwards, and a fantastic
point guard.
"McCormick was the biggest name of
the group," added Frieder. "But when
you take a look at the remainder of
them, you have to know we'll have a
good nucleus of ballplayers to build a
winning team for the next four years."
Spri ng foot ball awards
George Lilja, Norm Betts, and Keith
Bostic emerged as big winners this

week when Michigan football coach Bo
Schembechler announced the award
winners for the 1980 spring practice
Bostic, a sophomore-to-be from Ann
Arbor, was given the John F. Maulbet-
sch Award as the best freshman during
spring practice who showed desire,
character, capability for leadership
and future success both on and off the
field. Bostic is expected to start at free
safety when the Wolverines open their
1980 season Sept. 13 at home against
Betts, a junior-to-be from Midland,
won the Frederick C. Matthaei Award

for the sophomore who has displayed
leadership, drive, and achievement on
the field and in the classroom. Betts
was an Academic All-Big Ten tight end
in 1979.
Lilja was named the recipient of the
Meyer Morton Award, named after the
late Big Ten official. The award is given
to the player who shows the greatest
development and most promise as a
result of spring practice.
The Palos Park, Ill. senior-to-be was
Michigan's starting center in 1979 and
returns to anchor the offensive line. He
has already been named to one
pre-season All-American team, and
was named Offensive Champion of the
Week twice last season.
