Netters lose in finals
BY MIKE HEAD
The rivalry continues between the men's tennis
teams of Michigan and Minnesota. This past
weekend, the Golden Gophers defeated the Wolver-
ines, 5-2, in the finals of the Big Ten Champ-
ionships, claiming their fourth title since 1967.
Michigan has won the other 19 titles in that span.
The Wolverines (15-10 overall, 11-1 conference)
defeated Illinois, 5-2, and up-and-coming North-
westem, 5-3, setting up the championship match.
In the finals, the Wolverines' lack of depth, most
notably the loss of senior captain Dan Goldberg to a
shoulder injury, prevented them from winning their
third consecutive title.
Once again, sophomore Malivai Washington led
the team, sweeping all three of his matches without
losing a set. First-year player David Kass also won
his three matches in straight sets.
Desnite the dixsnnwintina end in the seasnn.the
Wolverines did not come back to Ann Arbor empty-
handed. In recognition of several outstanding indi-
vidual performances, the coaches of the Big Ten
bestowed three of the top honors to Michigan players.
Goldberg, named to the all-Big Ten team in each
of his four years, received the Sportsman-of-the-Year
award for his playing spirit.
Kass was named all-Big Ten, joining Washington
and Goldberg in the select group of first-year players
to receive this honor.
Washington, currently the number one ranked
collegiate player, capped off an incredible year by
earning Big Ten Player-of-the-Year honors.
For the third year in a row, head coach Brian
Eisner was honored by his colleagues as Coach of the
Year. He coached an inexperienced and injury-plagued
squad to a perfect regular season conference record and
to a second-olace finish in the championships.
