There's such a thing as a close

There's such a thing as a dis-

But one thing is certain. The
Michigan swimming team finish-

For the eighth straight year,
the Wolverines finished runner-
up to Indiana's eighth straight
Big Ten championship team,
beaten this time by the Hoosiers
490 to 339, in the 1968 Big Ten
Swimming meet. Michigan State
finished third with 248 points,

The point total for Indiana, the
number one team in the country,
was more than had ever been
scored before. For Michigan, it
was the lowest total the Wolver-
ines had racked up since this par-
ticular scoring system was insti-
tuted in 1965, well over fifty
points below the previous low of
396 a year ago.
And yet the meet was far clos-

before the mect. This was sup-
posed to be a rebuilding season
for the Wolverines, while Indiana
had its strongest team ever. And
in dual meets, the Hoosiers
thrashed Michigan 83-40 in Ann
Arbor and 80-43 in Bloomington.
And so it went right up to the
meet, when Indiana's ultra-mod-
est coach, Doc Councilman, asked
if he expected to win easily, said,
"Well at least this is the first
time we think we can win all
three relays."
THURSDAY
After the first event of the
meet, the Hoosiers looked not
only like they would be good, but
also lucky. Two super-sopho-
mores, Indiana's Charles South-
ward and Michigan's Gary Kin-
head, were hooked up in a 500-
yard freestyle duel. Kinhead had
the best time in the afternoon pre-
liminaries and then showed a tre-
mendous kick in catching South-
ward in the finals.
His time was given as 1/100th
of a second better than South-
ward, 4:46.60 to 4:46.61 yet the
fickle timing machine, while giv-
ing Kinkead the edge in time and
thus the new pool record, gave
Southward the win.
Meanwhile, t h e Wolverine's
Mike O'Connor was topping the
Hoosiers' Bob Windle in the race
for third place.
Bello
In the 200-yard individual
medley, Juan Bello, the other Mi-
chigan sophomore phenomenon,
stayed with Indiana's NCAA back-
stroke champion until the final
turn, when Charlie Hickcox took
advantage of his size to get more
out of the turn and win. Hickcox's
1:57.47 set a Big Ten record.

While Butler defended both his

two others could manage to ac-

Mondane was an easy 440 winner.
and Ray Arrington retained his
half-mile crown despite Michigan
sophomore Paul Armstrong's chal-
lenge in the stretch.
And with only four successful
title defenses in the meet, upsets
were plentiful; Michigan State's
Roland Carter was one of Viktor's
victims in the pole vault.
Out of It
Three defending champs failed
to place in their respective events;
Minnesota's Hubie Bryant was
nosed out of a 60-yard dash spot
as George Hoey and Sol Espie took
second and fourth for Michigan:
Bob Hawkes finished sixth in
the shot put (five places count),
but two of his teammates did
place. And Pat Wilson, the title-
holder in the 600 from Michigan
State, was eliminated in his heat
of the semi-finals.
As the crowd filed out of the
fieldhouse, there was still a pos-
sibility of Michigan gaining an
inconsequential half point on the
Badgers. Leon Grundstein and
Minnesota's Bryant finished in a
virtual tie for third in the 300.
and films were examined to see if
one had, in fact, been ahead.
The Gophers were not deprived
of the half-point, however. The
tie was upheld by meet officials,
and the two competitors received
equal awards.
