Daily Sports Writer
The end of a stellar season came last
Thursday. Michigan's Sarah Cyganiak
was defeated by California's Pam
elson, 6-3, 6-1, in the second round of
e 1995 NCAA Division I Women's
Tennis Championship at Pepperdine
University.
Cyganiak entered the64-player touma-
ment ranked No. 61 in the nation according
to the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
Nelson - who was the No. 6 seed in the
toumament-entered at No. 10.
"The match wasn't as good as I
would've liked it to be," Cyganiak said.
he ran down my shots. I was missing
my shots. I lost my focus."
Of her opponent, Cyganiak said,
"She can place the ball well."
To advance to the second round
Cyganiak first had to get past Louisiana
State's Suzana Rodrigues. The sopho-
more defeated Rodrigues - a sopho-
more from Cascavel, Brazil, 3-6,7-6 (3),
7-6 (3). The win was No. 50 in
Cyganiak's college career.
"It was basically tight the whole
ay," she said. "The first set was a mat-
ter of one break, and the second set was
pretty close. During the third set I said to
myself, 'Let's go."'
Cyganiak finished the year with an
overall record of 34-14. While playing at
No. 1 singles she was 17-6, which gives
her the fifth-best win total in Wolverine
history. Christine Schmeidel set the
record for most wins in a season in 1990
being 21-4.
Cyganiak's perfect 10-0 mark in Big
Ten regular season dual meets helped to
earn her 1995 Player of the Year honors.
She also was chosen for the all-confer-
ence team for the second season in a row.
"I thought I did pretty well,"
Cyganiak said. "This season was another
stepping stone for next season. (Next
season) I'll just keep doing what I've al-
ways been doing."
"We'll have a whole new team," she
*id about next year's squad. "We lost
the backbone of our team."

Close butnocigar.
Seniors Kelly Kovach, Michelle Sil-
ver and Lesa Arvia had to swallow that
clich6 for three years during their time
with the Michigan softball team.
But not anymore.
Friday and Saturday the Wolverines
(50-10) clinched their first NCAA Re-
gional Championship, in Ann Arbor. In
1992 and 1993 Michigan was the regional
runner-up, but not until this season did it
break through tohbecome the victors by de-
feating Notre Dame in a five-inning
mercy, 15-6.
So it's off to Oklahoma City for the
No. 6 Wolverines, where they will open
up the five day, double-elimination
NCAA College World Seriesagainst No.
3 SouthernLouisiana.
The last time a Michigan softball
squad advanced past regional play was in
1982, before the NCAA was sanctioned
women's athletics events.
"I'm thrilled - this has been my
dream sinceIstartedcoaching," Michigan
coach Carol Hutchins said. "This is the
team that brought it to us. I know they're
not just going out there happy to be in the
series. They are very happy to be there be-
cause now they have a chance to win.
After shutting out DePaul, 6-0,Friday,

and Notre Dame, 2-0, Saturday, Michi-
gan automatically advanced to the chas-
pionship match Sunday against the
Fighting Irish.
Right from the outset it was apparent
that the game would be a battle of the
teams' powerful offenses. After Silver
walked and pitcher Sara Griffin doubled to
lead off the game, Kovach smacked a
homerun over the leftfield fence for an
early 3-0lead.
"I was just trying to geta sacrifice fly
because we had a runner in scoring posi-
tion," Kovach said. "Sometimes I can see
which way they are going to pitch. Sara
helped me out on that one - luckily she
told me it was coming inside and Igotmy
bat out andchoked up."
However, the Wolverines were far
from content with the three-run cushion.
In the very next inning, Notre Dame fresh-
man pitcher Kelly Nichols was replaced
by sophomore Joy Battersby, but the
pitching change did nothing to hinder
Michigan's supercharged bats.
Shortstop Kathryn Gleason, who went
3-for-3 in the final game, opened the romp
with a single to leftfield and trotted to sec-
ond base when Silver walked.
Centerfielder Cheryl Pearcy then tripled
scoring both Gleason and Silver.
