Wolverine Tennis Players
Battle for Team Positions

Junior Star Sparked Relay
Squad to Conference Victory

By BILL BRENTON
Michigan's tennis team took
the green outdoor courts of Fer-
ry Field for the first time in a
week yesterday to open round
robin play for team positions.
Co-captains Al Hetzeck and
IDon MacKay led the 12-man con-
tingent vieing for the six singles
posts and three doubles combina-
tions. .
DICK LINCOLN, named the
most improved player on the squad
by Coach, Bill Murphy, joined
Hetzeck and MacKay in battling
r for the coveted number one posi-
tion. Graduation of diminutive
Andy Paton vacated the top post.
Steve Bromberg, ranking jun-
ior player and member of the
Detroit Junior Davis Cup squad
this summer, is a fixture at the
number four post, with senior
Len Brumm slated for number
five singles play.

line-up with his skidding flat

TWO sophomores, a pair of
juniors and three seniors have the
chips down in pre-season activity,
matching rackets in round robin
playoffs for the number six slot.
Heading the group is senior
Ross Herron, Grosse Pointe net-
ter, with four years practice ex-
perience. Junior Bob Stahl, of
Wyandotte High School fame,
has been playing three years,
but sophomores Dave Barrett
and Erhard Rothe have showed
promise.

Others fighting to make the
squad are seniors Bob Hesse and
Doren Russler and junior Jack
Griffith.

COACH MURPHY ranks the

ly-touted Hetzeck-MacKay duo.

and number five singles champ-

Dave Neisch, junior sprinter
from Detroit, was elected captain
of the 1951 Wolverine swimming
team at the natators' annual ban-
quet, held last night at the Mich-
igan Union.
Concurrent with the election of
Neisch came three awards, made
by the team members to their out-
going captain and Coaches Matt
Mann and Bill Kogen. Matt Mann
III, the 1950 captain, and Kogen
received sweaters, while Coach
Mann was presented with a golf
bag-carrier.

achievement was an anchor leg on
the 400-yard free style relay team
that won the Big Ten title.
A hard-working swimmer with
a style which caused one observ-
er to remark that "he swims for-
ty strokes in one," Neisch swam
consistently in the low 53's
through the 1950 season. He was
rated as one of the most im-
proved swimmers on the Maize
and Blue squad.
"Dave should make a great lead-
er-I'm sure he'll follow along in
the tradition of all the great Mich-
igan captains," Coach Mann stat-
ed last night after the selection
of the lanky Detroit performer.
Neisch had been under Mann's
tutelage for seven years at Camp
Chikopi, so as the genial Michigan
mentor said, "He's one of my
boys."

By DAVE PRESTON
The overabundance of Wolver-
ine football material during the
1946 season became a blessing in
disguise for Don MacKay, co-cap-
tain of this year's Michigan ten-
nis squad.
Finding too many players of the
quality of Ford, Mann, and Ma-
dar blocking his quest for a varsity
end position, Don turned all his
attention to his first love, tennis.
IE CAPTURED the number six
singles post in the spring of '47
under Coach Bob Dixon, and was
elevated to number five with the
advent of Bill Murphy as coach
last season.
Last June MacKay took the
number five singles crown in the
conference championships, but
the team fell victim to the Wild-
cats of Northwestern by one
point.
Needless to say, winning the
team title now ranks as his num-
ber one ambition. Don agrees with
Coach Murphy that this will be no
easy road to hoe, because Michi-

gan's squad will be definitely
weaker, but then so4 will the Wild-
cats, who have won the title two
years running.
* * *
DON HAS A good chance of
making the long jump to the num-
ber one singles spot, but the final
decision will probably rest on a
playoff between Co-captain Al Het-
zeck, Dick Lincoln, and MacKay.
Hetzeck and MacKay will form the
top doubles combination.
Don's tremendous improve-
ment in the last year may be at-
tributed to his own tireless ef-
forts. Murphy is quick to point
out that he is usually the first
player on the courts, and the
last one off.
Don credits his upward climb to
the assistance the coach has given
him, particularly in his volleying.
LAST SUMMER MacKay at-
tained considerable success in the
tournament circuit around De-
troit, taking two major tourna-
ments against top-flight competi-
tion.

He feels that his serve is his
best asset, and has been con-
centrating his efforts on raising
his backhand and overhead to
the same standards.
Back in grammar school Don's
first love was baseball, but after
taking on a paper route he found
no more time for the diamond
sport. Instead he began to devote
more and more of his spare time
to tennis, and soon it became his
primary interest.
* * *
AT HIGHLAND Park High
School MacKay competed for three
years, winning the East Side In-
terscholastic title in his final year.
His next three years were spent
in the Army Signal Corps, where
his athletic activity was limited to
a short stint on the Fort Mon-
mouth tennis squad.
