Wolverines place
eighth at Windon

By Riyaz Bbman
For the Daily
This weekend, the Michigan men's
golf team is headed to Penn State to
participate in the Northern Intercolle-
giate Invitational. Once again, the Wol-
verines will be juggling their tourna-
ment roster.
"I'm looking for consistency in the
lineup. Ifl can't get good performances
out of my players, they're off the ros-
ter," Michigan coach Jim Carras said.
The upcoming tournament will fea-
ture 18 teams from Michigan's region.
Illinois, Indiana and other teams from
the Big Ten will tee off along with
Kansas and other area independents.
The tournament is very important to
the Wolverine golfers and could deter-
mine whether or not they will return to
the regional finals this year.
Tuesday night the team returned from
Chicago after playing in the Windon
Classic. The tournament, hosted by
Northwestern, featured some ofthe best
competition in the country.
The Wolverines entered a field of 12
teams including No. 4 Florida and No.
5 Stanford.
Other top 25 teams included Texas
A&M and California. Stanford was led
by sophomore sensation Tiger Woods,
while Florida's ace, Josh McComber,
won the tournament.

Not only did the Wolverines play the
best competition in the country, they
played on two PGA-level courses, The
Royal Melbourne and Kemper Lakes.
"I didn't expect any of our players to
par these courses," Jim Carras said.
The Wolverines managed to place
eighth in the Windon Classic. How=
ever, Carras doesn't blame the perfor-
mance on the tough competition.
"I'm still not totally satisfied with the
way we've been playing lately," Carras
Throughout the season Michigan's
starting lineup has been changed four
Michigan's leaders, captain Chris
Brockway and Kyle Dobbs, both shot
231 for the 54-hole tournament.
Dobbs shot a 73 in the first round but
followed up with an 80 in the next.
"We're missing consistency in our
lineup," said Carras, "You can't com-
pete at the college level with that kind
of performance."
The poor performances were not re-
stricted to Brockway and Dobbs. New-
comers Justin Hicks and Isaac Hinkle
and junior David Jasper also had off-
days for Michigan.
"We played two tough courses,"'
Carras said. "But if the 4th and 5th
players shot 87s, we're not going to
place very well."

The Wolverines are coming off an eighth-place finish at the Windon Classic.

Netters part ways for weekend

By Mark Snyder
For the Daily
To build a team, individuals must
contribute. That is the premise for the
Michigan women's tennis team.
With an early start to its season, jun-
ior Sarah Cyganiak and freshman
Tumeka Harris have gotten in some
early work in preparation for team

verines will participate in tournaments

Her No.35 preseason ranking is a 21-
place improvement from the end of last
season. Optimism is high as the Wol-
verines' top player attempts to make
some waves out West.
Cyganiak will be joined by last
season's Big Ten Freshman ofthe Year

Sora Moon. Moon goes to California as
a pre-qualifier and is looking to receive
some experience against some of the
nation's best players.
Her sophomore season began on a
high note when she received the Sports-
manship Award at the Wolfpack Clas-
sic. At that tournament she also won her
first match of the season.
Michigan assistant coach Susan
Sommerville will be accompanying the
Wolverines to California.
"It will be a good opportunity for
(Cyganiak and Harris) to receive in-
dividual attention," coach Bitsy Ritt
FourotherWolverines will head south
for atournament hosted by Notre Dame.
The school is sponsoring the Eck Clas-
sic Friday through Sunday.
Led by freshman sensation Harris,
the four players making the trip will be
lookingto enhance theirgame this week-

"Every player is playing for the real
goal of showing improvement from the
tournament at North Carolina State,"
Ritt said.
In that tournament, Harris hit the
court with a vengeance. She played her
way all the way to the final game.
Harris' second-place finish was the
furthest that any Wolverine advanced.
She then teamed with fellow freshman
Jennifer Boylan to advance to the B-
flight semifinals in doubles. Harris'
double duty moves her record to 3-1 so
far this season.
Boylan, Tara Graff and Sibyl Smith
will also be playing at Notre Dame.
Ritt said that facing a tournament full
of talented teams will pose a problem
for the Wolverines - but that she was
more interested in giving her players'
"We are focusing on individual
progress and not results this weekend,"
Ritt said.

team's most valuable player.
"Mike is our MVP, without a doubt,"
Burns said."He and Mike Daily had ajob

Aside from MacInnis' penalty shot,
Eastern wasted many other opportuni-
ties. Eagle standout Vesa Virtanen played
impressively, but came up empty on all
hisshots. On oneattempt, withonlytwelve
minutes remaining in the second over-
time, Virtanen just missed the high cross-
bar. A key element to the contest was
endurance. Many Michigan players were
crampingup and allowed several scoring
opportunities at the end of regulation and
during the first overtime.

"During most games, I only chew one
piece of gum. This game was a three
piecer, with all the tension," said Bums.
But once Michigan scored, the team
got its second wind. The Michigan play-
ers slowed Eastern down, until the game's
final shot. Diego Alvarez overshot the
highcrossbar by a couple of feet, and the
Michigan supporters let out a collective
sigh ofrelief as their squad walked offthe
field with the Washtenaw Cup.
