Invie ' s injury indicative of netters ' season It just wasn ' t meant to be The Texas Tech men ' s tennis team finished the 1984-85 tennis season seventh in the Southwest Conference. The Red Raiders posted a 20-52 record, just behind Houston, going into the SWC tournament in Corpus Christi, but again this year, dreams for suc- cess at the tournament were not enough. Neither was the play of junior college All- America David Leatherwood, who joined Ron Damron ' s Raiders this year after a fine career at Odessa Junior College. Leatherwood, a junior, had help in Dam- ron ' s high-hopes season from fellow transfer student Simon Hurry, a former Oral Roberts University star. In reality, the doubles team of Hurry and freshman Dick Bosse highlighted the team ' s performance in the SWC championship tournament, reaching the finals in the No. 2-seed round. Injuries, including those to sophomore Ted Invie and freshman H.C. Taylor result- ing from an auto accident, hampered the team. Still, strong showings against Hous- ton and Texas A M enabled the Raiders to end conference play on a high note. The young Raiders will return standouts Hurry and Bosse in 1985-86. Other strong players expected to return are Tony Blaas and 1983-84 letterman Invie. Praising Invie, Damron said, " He is an incredible competitor on the court, and the person I can always count on to give 100 percent. " Hurry finished the year with a 16-16 record, Bosse at 16-18. Leatherwood had a 17-14 year in singles play, followed by Lamar May at 18-14, Blaas 5-8, and senior Vince Menard, back from " retirement " for an 11-5 year. Invie finished 12-10, and Taylor was 6-5. Doubles match records, not counting SWC championship tournament rounds, were: Hurry 14-13, Bosse 15-13, Leath- erwood 16-14, May 10-19, Blaas 7-7, and Menard 9-4. Leatherwood and May played consistent- ly throughout the conference season, ending with 5-3 and 4-4 records respectively. — Sarah Luman Dick Bosse, a freshman from Pretoria, South Africa, prepares to hit a backhand groundstroke in his dual match against Midland College. Bosse went on to win the match by a comfortable margin. Ted Invie Sophomore Ted Invie came to Texas Tech as the former number one player in the Pacific Northwest and the Oregon high school singles champion with a 120-7 win-loss record. Invie was the only returning player from the 1983-84 Tech season, when he posted a 14-8 record. In the 1984 fall sea- son, Invie played well and reached the finals of the West Texas Collegiate Ten- nis Championships in the flight three divi- sion. His consistency continued into the spring until a car accident after the Easter break forced him to sit out the rest of the season. " I ' m looking forward to next year so I can get back on the court and play again , said Invie. " I ' m missing it.
