Gymnasts

Tie

for

Big

Ten

Championship

By ANDY BARBAS
Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING-Two plus two
equals one.
At least for Mchigan it does.
Without taking first place in
either the Big Ten Meet or dual
meet competition, the gymnasts
finished in a three-way tie for the
Big Ten championship.
The Big Ten Meet was swept last
Saturday by Michigan State with
an outstanding 190.25 score. After
a 188.0 score for Michigan, trailed
Iowa with 185.85. The Hawkeyes,
however, had previously won the
dual meet competition while the
Spartans placed third.
Since each of the areas of com-
petition counts half, the three tied.
This allows all three to be eligible
for NCAA national competition.
An NCAA rule change this year
eliminated the traditional regional,

meet and stated that only the con-
ference winners would advance to
the national meet. But due to the
tie, the NCAA must allow all three
teams to compete.
First for MSU
The results of the meet also
marked individual accomplish-
ments for the schools. For Mich-
igan State, it was their first Big
Ten gymnastics championship. For
Iowa, it was the second straight
gym championship they've taken.
For Michigan, it was their seventh
title in the past eight years, the
missed year being last year- to
Iowa.
Tension was the word for the
meet because of the new foremat
u s e d. Preliminary eliminations
(bottom four teams) and individ-
ual championships were held Fri-
day with the showdown between
the top four on Saturday.

Friday's efforts netted the Wol-
verines two individual titles. Dave

Michigan Grapples t

By BILL McFALL
special To The Daily
IOWA CITY -- As last Friday
afternoon drew to a close, the
results of the preliminary and
quarter-final rounds of the Big
Ten Wrestling Tournament fell
into place just as most of the
forecasters had predicted.
Perennial powers from the Wa-
ter-Winter-Wonderland, Michigan
and Michigan State, were tied for
first place, while the Wildcats of
Northwestern and the underdog
Hawkeyes of Iowa were fighting
things out for third.
Later that night, in the semi-
finals, the upsets q nd surprises
started flowing thick and fast.
Michigan suffered more than its
fair share of setbacks as some of
* the Wolverine grapplers, who had
been figured to go all the way,
met defeat and were forced to set
their hopes on, third, or fourth
place instead.
Going into the final rounds on
Saturday afternoon, the Michigan
team held third place overall with
46 points, just below Northwestern,
which had 47, and far behind
Michigan State, who led the pack
with a commanding 63 points.
And Iowa was nipping at the
lagging Wolverine heels with a
commendable 40 points.
Lackluster Show
Then, on that bright, sunny,
55-degree day, Michigan turned
in a lackluster performance that
yielded no weight division champ-
ions, and just a smattering of place
winners.
During that afternoon: Spartan

each.

MICHIGAN'S FRED STEHMAN maintains his hold on North-

in this weekend's Big Ten wrestling championships. The Wolver-
ine senior was solidly decisioned, however, and ended up with the

runnerup position in his weight.
Hudson, and Geoff Benson came
through in good shape by winning
their 123, 130, and 137-pound
matches with Henson picking up
a win by a fall.
Tom McCaslin lost early to
State's defending champ, Dale
Carr, at 145 pounds.'
From then on it was alternate
