Dodgers’ victory
evens NL series
Rookie Tim Belcher allowed five hits
in 8 1/3 innings and the Dodgers
chased pitcher-reporter David Cone
with five runs in the first two innings
as Los Angeles beat the New York
Mets 6-3 Wednesday night to even
the National League playoffs at a
game apiece.
In an article written for the New
York Daily News, Cone said Los
Angeles reliever Jay Howell looked
“like a high school pitcher” in the
ninth inning of Game 1, when the
Mets scored three times for a 3-2 vic
tory. Cone also said Dodgers starter
Orel Hershiser was lucky to shut out
the Mets for eight innings.
Lucky or not, Belcher beat Cone in
Game 2.

Concentration will be the key for
the Nebraska women’s tennis team
when it stages the Husker Inv itational

Nebraska women’s tennis coach
Gregg Calvin said he is looking for a
good menial effort from the Corn
“Our concentration has improved
at each practice and match,” Calvin
said. “But since no team scores will be
kept, this will take a lot of the pressure
off the athletes.
We just need to play a match and
put in our full effort. It is hard when
the mental concentration goes.”
The tournament includes Arkan
sas, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas Slate,
Minnesota, Texas Tech and Wichita

not change much from previous tour
naments. Freshman Kathrin Edelkot
tcr and sophomore Ildiko Guba will
remain at the No. 1 and 2 singles
spots, respectively. Sophomore Clau
dia Gandini will be added to the
lineup at No. 7 singles.
Calvin said the No. 1 and 2 doubles
teams will remain the same. Junior
Doncta Holmen and sophomore

The only change will come at the

which freshmen Leslie Sue Jones and
Rachel Collins will team up for the
first time this season.
Calvin said Texas Tech will be one
of the best teams at the tournament.
He said Iowa is also a good team and
should prov idea strong challenge, but
added that up to five teams could
provide challenges.
Winning at least (me singles and
doubles bracket will be the Buskers’
goal this weekend, Calvin said. He
said Nebraska needs to improve its

“We just need to get to thinking that
we are a good team We need more

No Nebraska men’s tennis player
has ever managed to gain a berth in
the National Indoor Tournament
That could c hange Friday through
Sunday when the Comhuskers com
S5te in the Intercollegiate Tennis
oaches Association tournament at
Salina, Kan.
The tournament consists of the top
64 singles and top 32 doubles teams
from Region 5, which consists mainly
of Big Eight and Missouri Valley
Conference schools.
McDermott said individuals that
qualify for the finals of the singles
competition will receive an all-ex
pense paid trip to the National Indoor
Tournament. Participants also must
win the doubles competition to qual
ify for the tournament.
McDermott is using Nebraska’s
absence of qualifiers to inspire his
players during this week’s practices.
“We are anxious for (the meet),”
he said, and we have been throwing
around the idea that since Nebraska
has never had anyone qualify we
have asked ‘Who will be the’first
Nebraska person to qualify (for the
national tournament)?’”
McDermott said this is Nebraska’s
biggest meet of the fall season and
that he expects the Huskers to play
well in the tournament
Last year, Steven Jung,
Nebraska’s No. 1 singles player, lost
in the semifinals. McDermott said he
expects Jung 19 repeat or better that
performance. Robert Sjoholm, Uic
Huskers* No. 2 singles player, will
also make a strong bid to be
Nebraska’s first qualifier, he said.
Ken Feuer, Nebraska’s No. 3
singles player, also should be in the
running, McDermott said.
“When Ken makes up his mind to,
he does things good, McDermott
said. “With Ken being a junior, he
needs to look for leadership within
himself and expect something out of
“He needs to try and expect big
In doubles competition, McDer
mott said, NebrarJca’s No. 1 doubles
team of Steven and Stuart Jung should
be considered among the favorites.
The Jungs lost in the quarterfinals of
last year’s meet and are currently
ranked 11th among the nation's colle
giate doubles teams.
H.C. Taylor and Sjoholm.
Nebraska’s No. 2 doubles team, and
the No. 3 tandem of Pat Carson and
Feuer should also challenge for a
national berth, McDermott said.
McDermott said the Huskers are
capable of placing at least one singles
player among the final 16 and at least
one doubles team m the quarter finals.
“If we can do this, then we have
accomplished what we wanted to do,”
McDermott said. “We would like to
get at least three past the quarterfi
nals, but that is a big goal.”
McDermott said that in singles
competition, the favorite is Hakan
Svcnsson of Southwest Missouri
