'M' Netters Take
By CARL RISEMAN
Michigan's tennis team, added
some frosting to its Big Ten
championship cake Sunday by
sweeping the three doubles finals.
These matches, which were
rained out Saturday on the North-
western tennis courts, gave the
Wolverines a team total of 78
points out of a possible 84.
Northwestern's surprising Wild-
cats, who were Michigan's oppon-
ents in all three doubles finals,
finished second with 44 points.
Other team scores were Indiana,
30 points; Illinois, 29%; Iowa,
28%; Michigan State, 10%; Ohio
State, 10; Minnesota, 9; Wiscon-
sin, 8; Purdue, 0.
All three Wolverine doubles
teams easily defeated their Wild-
cat opponents. Barry MacKay and
Dick Potter annexed their third
conference title at the expense of
Keith Anderson and Vandy Chris-
tie, 6-4 and 6-2.
Mark Jaffe and Jon Erickson
± defeated Jack Egan and Andy
Shillinglaw for the second doubles
title, 7-5 and 6-2.
The third doubles victory, and
the eighth out of nine possible
titles, came when John Harris and
Dale Jensen triumphed over
Northwestern's Jay Kramer and
Dick Siebert, 6-2 and 6-4.
It is unlikely that there will
be a team with as much depth and
power in the Big Ten meet as this
year's Michigan team. The first

presence felt in the Big Ten dur-
ing the past three years.
MacKay, who proved himself a
truly great player in the weekend
meet, twice captured the Big Ten
first singles championship, while
Potter captured third twice and
second once, and Jaffe won the
second singles twice and third
But the future looks bright with
the fine display of Harris and
Erickson. Harris won his second
title in two years by annexing the
fifth singles crown and sophomore
Erickson won the fourth singles.

to lose a match, did so in the semi-
finals and to the future champion,

Third place in the Big Ten
would have been disgraceful last
year, but it was a pleasant surprise
to Michigan track coach Don Can-
ham last weekend.
"I had expected the team to
finish around sixth," Canhamj
stated, "but the boys came through
with a great team effort-the bestt
team effort by Michigan trackmen
in a long time."
There were many factors that
contributed to the Wolverines'
third-place finish. For one, the top
five teams-Indiana, Ohio State,
Iowa, Illinois, and Michigan State
-didn't pan out as expected.
Indiana completely dominated
the meet. It was expected to be
close, decided by only a point.,
perhaps. Instead, the Hoosiers
finished 22 points ahead of second-
place Ohio State.
Behind these two leaders things
were split quite evenly. Instead of
strong performances, as expected,
by Illinois and Michigan State,
both of these squads qualified few
men and grabbed only one first
This opened the way for Michi-
gan. The Wolverines' points camne
from many creditable perform-
ances, crowned by Dave Owen's
expected first in the shot put.
The rest of Michigan's point
total came in the form of surprise

Saturday's cancelled game be-
tween Michigan and Michigan
State cost the Wolverines more
than the title.
Lost were the six hits the team
batted out in the four and a half
innings, including two by Ken
Tippery, Don Poloskey's fine
pitching performance, and Gene
Snider's second stolen base of the
The only crown the Wolverines
retained was the team batting
Tippery went into the weekend
holding third place in the indi-
vidual batting race.
Bill Mansfield held him hitless
on Friday. But Saturday he had
his hitting clothes on, rapping out
a single and a triple in his first
two trips to the plate. He seemed
on his way to a fine closing per-
formance in his 'Big Blue' uni-
form before the rains came.
Poloskey, intent on removing
himself from Coach Ray Fisher's
dog house Saturday, seemed to
overcome the poor pitching that
put him there, before the rains
Snider's steal was a masterpiece
of base running, and was another
example of his clutch playing. He
constantly came through in the
last two weeks of the season when
the chips were down.
What about next year?
~ The left side of the infield will
be no problem, with Ernie Myers
at third and Steve Boros at short.
John Herrnstein, with a year un-
der his belt, should be the Con-
ference's top pitcher, as well as a
strong hitter and outfielder.

becoming a star at the plate and
afield, while Jack Lewis is an ex-
cellent fielder but will have to
pick up on his hitting.
Dean Finkbeiner improved on
the mound at the tail end of the
season, and Bob Sealby is a good
man to have around on the hill
or at first, while Snider will still
be behind the plate.
However, look for new faces on
the right side of the infield, as
Tippery and Jim Vukovich will be
gone, and replacements will have
to be found.

Michigan golf coach Bert Kat-

season that Wisconsin might give
Purdue trouble when the Big Ten
meet rolled around.
His prophesy came true last
weekend, as the Badger linksters

golf to outclass the rest of the

a dog-fight between six teams--
Ohio State, Iowa, Michigan State
and Michigan-besides the Boiler-'
makers and Badgers,
However, the Badgers'kept up a
fast pace, and as a team were, two
under par after playing 63 of the

could keep up the torrid pace, and

The Wolverines evened their

them. In dual meets Michigan had
fallen twice to both of them while
beating them only once.
Michigan also gained revenge

held a two-to-one dual-meet ad-
vantage over Katzenmeyer's squad.
