Gymnasts Breeze

by Gophers

Wrestlers Come From Behind;
Take Down Pittsburgh, 20-9

By ANDY BARBAS
Michigan won.
It was nothing spectacular; it
wasn't unexpected.
It was almost as if the meet was
being conducted in order to make
the result official.
The gymnasts walked out, took
six of the seven events, and com-
piled a 185.65 to 178.0 score.
The only unusual thing was that
both coachs expected the win-
ning margin to be greater. Min-
nesota's coach Ralph Piper felt,
"my team was definitely improved.
FLOOR EXERCISE 1. Hunt-
zicker (M), 9.2; 2. Jensen (M),
9.0; 3. Peterson (Minn), 8.95; 4.
Miller (M), 8.85.
SIDE HORSE - 1. Linder (Minn).
9.10; 2. Noer (Minn), 9.0; 3. Deboo
(M), 8.8; 4. Hennessy (Minn), 8.35. "
RINGS - 1. Froeming (M), 9.3;
r2. Kenney (M), 9.15; 3. Jensen (M),
9.1; 4. Keuffer (Minn), 9.0.
TRAMPOLINE -- 1. Jacobs (M),

This is the best score we've had all
season."
Michigan's Newt Loken sum-
med it up as "definitely one of
our weaker performances." Before
the meet, he was hoping to break
190. After the second event, the
side horse, the moon looked closer.
Michigan started off the meet
effectively, gaining 27.05 in the
floor exercise, even without the
help of their best performer, Dave
Jacobs. Both Sid' Jensen and
George Huntzicker received their
highest scores this season.
9.55; 2. Miller (M), 9.3; 3. Howell
(Minn), 7.9; 4. Nelson (Minn), 7.4.
VAULTING -- 1. Miller (M),
9.15; 2. Jensen (M), 9.1; 3. Howell
(Minn), 9.05; 4. tie, Rodney (M) and
Huntzicker (M), 9.0.
PARALLEL BARS --- 1. Jensen (M),
91; 2. Rapper (M), 9.05; 3. Nelson
(Minn), 8.8; 4. Keuffer (Minn), 8.6.
HIGH BAR - 1. Sasich (M), 9.15;
2. tie, Rodney (M) and Jensen (M),
8.95; 4. Harris (Minn), 8.65.

And then there was the side
horse. All three Michigan en-
trants slipped, leaving a score of
24.15 behind them. This was the
worst Michigan has scored in any
event this season.
At this point, Minnesota actu-
ally led the meet by 1.6 points,
after a 9.1 by Robin Linder and a
9.0 by co-captain John Noer on
the side horse.
Rebounded
Michigan rebounded on the rings
with an outstanding 27.55 total.
Charlie Froeming put out his best
effort this year in leading with a
9.3.
The trampoline team, Michigan's
pride and joy, found a rough edge.
George Huntzicker couldn't get
in the grove and slipped three
times. Fred Rodney was forced to
compete and his score was sub-
stituted for Huntzicker's. Mich-
igan's total of 26.10 still was

enough to overpower Minnesota,
whch only got 21.95 points.
Vaulting was efficient as usual.
The Wolverine's performance on,
the parallel bars was not upbto
par. Jensen and Ron Rapper both
scored above 9.0, but Rodney slip-
ped to an 8.35. Minnesota wasn't
able to take advantage of this
last opportunity, as they could
only salvage 25.5 points to Mich-
igan's 26.5.
Finally a 27
The high bar team from Mich-
igan finally pulled out an above
27 score, 27.05. Mike Sasich led
with a 9.15, one of his best results
this year. Rodney and Jensen both
just missed 9.0. Minnesota proved
this to be one of their weaker
events, totalling only 24.5.
Looking back at the meet, the
Gopher coach prophesized, "Right

Starting out poorly, the Wol-

four weight divisions.
"We just didn't wrestle well at
the beginning and had a slow
start," said assistant Coach Rick
Bay. "Besides we knew Pitt has
not had much success this year,
and that makes it difficult to get
up for a meet."
Geoff Henson, one of the few

line-up, grabbed Michigan's first

WOLVERINES THIRD:
Frosh Panthers Grab

By BOB LEES
There was excitement aplenty
at yesterday's Freshman Invita-
tional Wrestling Tournament -
but, at the last moment of the
last match, a last-minute entry
walked off with the laurels.

. The yearlings from the Uni-
versity of Pittsburgh, invited early
last week to round out the field
at eight squads, came on strong
in the championship finals to
slide by runnerup Michigan State,,
72-68.
Meanwhile, the host Michigan
grapplers, defending champions
of the tourney, finished a distant
third with 39 points, while North-
western, Central Michigan, Toledo,
Western Michigan and, Bowling
Green rounded out the field..
Panthers
For the Panthers from Pitts-
burgh, the win was a tribute to
the intensive work of two other,
first-year men - new head coach
Dave Adams and his assistant Bob
Fehrs. Fehrs, who last year starred
in a Blue uniform for the Wolver-
ines, was ceremonially presented
the first-place trophy after the
tourney by Adams, who had re-
ceived it from tournament direc-
for and Wolverine coaching as-
sistant Rick Bay. Then the entire
Pitt squad promptly picked Fehrs.
up and gave him their idea of a
ceremonial presentation: a shower
while fully clothed.
Going into the final matches,
however, the tourney was close
enough that no one was predict-
ing a shower for anybody. MSU
had a shaky one point lead over
Pitt, and Michigan was not too
far behind them. But the Pan-
thers had six finalists, while State
could muster only four, and the,
Wolverines three.
When the dust had cleared
from the various consolation fin-
als and eight of the championship
matches, moreover, crowns be-
longed to four Panthers, two
Spartans, one Wolverine, and a
Toledoan -- and Pitt and State
were deadlocked. But Panther
Ralph Cindrich ended all that
nonsense by pinning his heavy-
weight opponent in 6:11 to end
the affair.
The brightest spot for the Wol-
verines, came in the 167-pound
division, where Tom Quinn,
a two-time state champ from

Trophy
Flint, defeated Pitt's Gene Reese
in a decisive 8-0 display. "We're
very happy with Tom's perform-
ance today," declared Bay after
the tournament. "What made it
even more impressive was that
he was wrestling up a weight."
"Actually," he continued, "our
entire team went in at a slight
disadvantage, with everyone up
at least one class from their nor-
mal positions. Dave Brooks, for
example, was up two weights.
(Brook lost in the semifinals of
his division.)
"But we're still quite pleased
with everyone - and especially
Quinn, (Tim) Cech, (Jerry) Hod-
dy, (Mark) Denies, and (Bob) Cas-
sell." Cech and Hoddy gained run-
nerup positions at 123 and 130,
respectively, while Denies took a
third at 145 and Cassell a fourth
at 177.
As a Whole
Looking at the tournament as
a whole, Bay seemed happy with
the results. "There was excellent
competition out there," he said.
"Pitt brought a fine team, and
so of course did MSU.
"'But this is an annual affair,"
he concluded, "and we hope to
make it even tougher next year."
