Softball to open home season

by Ryan Herrington
Daily Sports Writer

If you have been hearing sighs of
relief from the athletic campus
lately, they are probably coming
from Michigan's softball team. For
the first time this season, the squad
does not have to take to the road in
search of competition. This week-
end, the Wolverines will host the
NSK/Michigan Wolverine Invita-
tional.
The invitational has a four-
school field consisting of DePaul,
Northern Illinois, Ohio and Michi-
gan. All of the teams will play each
other once during the two-day tour-
nament, with the top two teams fac-
ing off in the championship game on
Sunday. Michigan coach Carol
Hutchins is excited about this
weekend's action.
"The tournament keeps us com-
petitive," Hutchins said. "We need
to gear up for each game just like it
is the Big Ten. We need to show up
to play for every game."
The Wolverines (2-2 in the Big
Ten, 15-9 overall) are in the midst
of a six day, eight game stretch.
They face both Ohio and Northern
Illinois on Saturday and finish
round-robin play with DePaul on
Sunday.
Michigan bounced back nicely
from a disappointing first weekend
of Big Ten play at Indiana by sweep-
ing a doubleheader against a strong
Central Michigan team on Wednes-
day.
The Wolverines received clutch'
hitting with runners in scoring po-

sition, something they had been
lacking a week ago. Hutchins says
hitting in key situations will again
be essential if the Wolverines are to
be successful this weekend.
The tournament field is not one
full of "cream puffs." Northern
Illinois is the three-time defending
champion of the North Star Confer-
ence and has contended for nationals
in the last few seasons.
The Huskies are led by catcher
Julie Sexton, who is batting .447
this season, and first baseman Lisa
Gilfoy, who leads the team with
five home runs and 21 RBI's.

DePaul, who will be facing the
Wolverines for the first time, is
struggling of late, coming off a 7-8
spring break schedule. Ohio has
played well despite their 7-7 record.
"I expect this weekend to be
competitive," Hutchins said. "We
need to stay up mentally, which can
be a challenge because it's not a Big
Ten weekend."
Playing at home, the Wolverines
will have extra incentive to be pre-
pared for their opponents. They will
try to show their fans what they
have learned on the road so far this
season.

No rest for weary swimmers

by Ken Su gura
Daily Sports Writer

The Michigan men's swimming
team is just a week into the off-sea-
son, and it already has found a meet
in which to compete.
Seven members of the sixth-
place NCAA Championship team
(Mike Barrowman, Eric Namesnik,
Eric Wunderlich, Steve Bigelow,
Brian Gunn, Rodney VanTassell and
Noel Strauss) left earlier this week
for Seattle, Wash, for the United
States Swimming Senior Nationals.
The meet began Wednesday and con-
cludes Sunday.
As the meet is sanctioned by
only United States Swimming (the
national governing body), instead of
in conjunction with the NCAA, the
Wolverines will be representing
their respective clubs and not the
University.

All except for Barrowman and
Strauss will swim for Michigan
coach Jon Urbanchek's Club
Wolverine. Barrowman will swim
for Curl-Burke, an East Coast club,
while Little Rock (Ark.) Rocket
Club is Strauss' home club.
While fast times and a possible
team championship are certainly
goals, Michigan assistant coach
Mark Noetzel is curbing his expec-
tations.
"It's very difficult to swim a
week after the NCAAs for a meet
that isn't very intense to them," he
said.
For the team, the meet is some-
thing of a vacation, after having put
in seven months of intense training
in preparation for the Big Ten
Championships and the NCAAs.
This goes double for Barrowman,
Wunderlich and Namesnik, who es-
sentially swam two seasons in that
time. The trio first trained and
rested for the World Champi-
onships and then again for the recent
NCAA meet.

Shortstop Dave Everly races for first base after the University of Detroit's catcher dropped strike three
during Michigan's contest with the Titans. The game was called due to darkness with the scored tied at 8. 3
Weather wins as Blue tiesl

by Rod Loewenthal
Daily Baseball Writer
In hockey, it's one thing, but no-
body on the diamond likes to see a
tie. Even if you were down, 8-4, in
the sixth inning and managed to
come back and then had the game
called after the ninth because of rain
and darkness - nobody likes a tie.
Just ask the Michigan baseball
team (14-10-1) who battled the De-
troit-Mercy Titans yesterday to an
8-8 draw. Southpaw Brian Feldman
started on the mound for the
Wolverines but exited an inning

early because of tightness in his
throwing arm. In his third start of
the season the rookie yielded two
runs on six hits over five innings,
leaving the tied, 2-2.
"Getting ahead in the count
helped me," Feldman said.
"Basically I was using my fastball
trying to get ahead in the count, I
wasn't mixing it up."
Pitcher Jeff Tanderys entered in
the sixth for Michigan. Titan Lance
Sullivan smacked a double to left
and later scored after Tanderys
walked three men in a row. A sacri-
fice fly brought in another run, and
then Tanderys walked the next bat-
ter to load the bases again.
Michigan coach Bill Freehan
then called on first-year hurler
Chris Newton who gave up a Texas-
leaguer that shortstop Dave Everly
dropped because of a collision with
second baseman Scott Winterlee.
The hit scored the final two runs of
the inning, as Detroit managed to
bat around the order.
The Wolverines picked up single

runs in the fifth and sixth while the
Titans added two of their own in the
top of the seventh to make it 8-4,
Detroit. But Michigan stormed beck
with three in their half of the sei-
enth and squeezed out another run in
the eighth to tie it, 8-8.
"Pressure wasn't the problem,'*
Newton said. "It was more- a few
mechanical things in my pitching
motion."
Yesterday the Wolverines expe-
rienced the same problem they've
encountered all season long. They
have been unable to combine their
pitching efforts with their hitting
efforts. Against Detroit the
Wolverines were able to get the hit
but their pitching fell short.
"As pitchers, as players, as r
team we didn't do what we had, to
do to win," Newton said. "Tfe
bullpen didn't do the job and it's
been like that all year - the middle
relief just couldn't do it." -
This weekend Michigan travels
to Iowa for a four-game series with
the Hawkeyes.
