STars Scored Many Wins Last Season

By JERRY FANGER
For the second consecutive
year Michigan's Sailing Club tri-
umphed in the Mid-Western meets
and made a fine showing in the
National regatta.
Michigan's Tars started off the
season with a victory in their own

invitational regatta. The other
crews never had a chance to see
the front of the Wolverine ding-
hies as the Sailing club gai nered
123 points in the two-day meat.
DePauw with 104 points, and
Notre Dame with 87 points were
the second and third place teams.

THEIR SECOND victory came
the following week over highly
rated Notre Dame. Michigan Sail-
ing Club took every race on that
windy Saturday afternoon.
In the Regional Eliminations
for the Mid-Western Cham-
pionship Regatta the Wolverine
crews were supreme. Michigan
led the way with 72 points, fol-
lowed by Purdue with 64 and
Bowling Green with 51.
Consistency paid off for the
Wolverines in the Mid-Western

team in hits, runs, and all phases
of slugging, was named to cap-
tain the 1951 outfit and will
head the outfield this season.
Line Painer, who lettered as a
sophomore last year, is the only
other man with any outfield ex-
perience returning.
In the infield Fisher will have
to do a complete rebuilding job
as only Dorr is returning. Gone
are the veterans Wolff, Morrill,
and Bucholz, and reserves Ed
Frosheisher and Ted Berce.

THE CATCHING position will
be adequately manned with Palm-

starting berth. Painter and Doug
Peck, who saw some limited service
last year will also be available.

strong group of soph hurlers is
expected to help the mound staff
considerably.
The 1951 team will use the new
Ferry Field baseball stadium which
compares most favorably with any
collegiate park in the country. It
was placed in service during the
past season but was not complete-
ly finished until the end of the
campaign.
The park seats 3,500 and is com-
pletely steel and concrete with
modern facilities for the players
and fans. A new shower room has

been installed underneath the sta-
dium for visiting players to save
them the trouble of walking across
to the Sports Building, as they
had to do in the past.
It looks like the 1951 baseball
season offers Michigan farts the
best in both a ball club and a
grandstand.

Crisler, director of Athletics at
Michigan, has an all-time record
since 1930 of 116 games won, 32

In every regatta in which the
Michigan Sailing Club partici-
pated, the outstanding sailors
were Johns, the skipper of the
A division dinghy; Gene O'Con-
nor, skipper of the B divisioa
dinghy; and Tina Lawrence and
Bob Allen who acted as crew for
the two skippers.
Triangular courses were used in
each meet. This kind of course
was used so that the wind will hit
the boats from a different direc-
tion on each of the three legs of
the race.
Every crew had the same type
boat, with equal weight and speed
in each regatta. Double-trouble
dinghies, 111% feet long, were used
in the meets. These boats are ex-
ceedingly difficult to handle be-
cause of their smallness and shal-
low displacement.
