While we were away

Although rain has played havoc with
this season's softball schedule and the
Michigan Tournament, the Wolverines
have managed to keep their heads
above water.
Coach Bob DeCarolis' squad stands
27-23 on the season, including a 6-12
mark in the Big Ten. Bad weather has

Last Friday, eight teams kicked off
the first annual Michigan Tournament.
The teams, including Eastern
Michigan, Northwestern, Miami,
Detroit, Ball State, St. Francis and
Northern Illinois, each played three
games before Mother Nature took over.
By day's end Northwestern stood as
the only undefeated team in the tour=
nament. The Cats and EMU (2-1) paced
Pool One, while the Wolverines tied
with St. Francis and Northern Illinois
for top spot in Pool Two with 2-1 marks.

impressive since she played first
singles, and may retain that position for
the Big Ten meet.
The other lineup changes at
Tuesday's meet were the absence of
Jane Silfen (who was replaced by Ring)
and Juliet Naft. Naft, a second doubles
player, is expected to return for the Big
Ten tournament, but Silfen "will not be
in the lineup for Big Tens" according to
Owens. No explanation was given for
her absence.
This means that the Wolverines will
be missing three singles players that
they started the year with. Last year's

Despite these setbacks the
Wolverines are seeded third in the con-

Owens refers to as "Our toughest".
"We've beaten them a couple of times
and it's tough to beat someone three
times, as ridiculous as that sounds."
The players, on the other hand, seem

ded, "I'm psyched. I can't wait."

finished off the Big Ten season with
three straight victories, and it once
again looks strong going into this
weekend's Big Ten Championships at
For the Wolverines the word
"dynasty" brings to mind more than
Linda Evans, since the netters have
won 15 consecutive Big Ten team titles.
Best bets to bring individual titles
back to Ann Arbor include number four
singles player Jim Sharton, who com-
piled a 15-7 overall record and went 8-0
in the ' Big Ten. Number one singles
Mark Mees will also be a player to wat-
ch, with a 5-3 Big Ten mark to his credit
and an outstanding 8-0 record at first
doubles with partner Tom Haney.
