Indiana's swim team has beent

THE WOLVERINES have beenl
following the Hoosier wake in a
comfortable runner-up spot sincet
1963. But when Ohio State and
Michigan State splash into t h e
pool this afternoon, Michigan may
get more than Just a mouthful.
The Buckeyes show strength in
the freestyle a n d backstroke
events, while Michigan State will
have to be reckoned with in the
breaststroke and medley relays.
These two teams will battle Mich-
igan for the runner-up spot, withj
the Buckeyes given an edge ac-
cording to seeded times.
Michigan Diving Coach D i c k

of the times, "Since it's early in
the season, most of the seeded
times are Just guesses by the
coaches. I suspect that Michigan

a good bet to win every swimming

one of their best divers Mike Fin-

Besides these four teams, there
will be Minnesota, Wisconsin, Il-'
linois, Iowa, and non-conference
visitor Southern Illinois who faced
the Wolverines in a dual meet last
night. Only Minnesota and South-

The season begins in earnest for
the Wolverine gymnastics team
today as they take on the Wis-
consin Badgers in the E v e n t s
Building. Defending NCAA paral-
lel bars champion Ron Rapper
will lead the young Michigan squad
against the first obstacle in the
path to a successful defense of
their Big Ten title.
Despite strong side horse and
ring teams, Wisconsin is not ex-
pected to provide very stiff op-
position for Coach Newt Loken's
gymnasts. John Russo and Larry
Scully are among the best in the
conference on the side horse, but
get little help from their team-
mates. Dave Lentrey is a stand-
out on the rings, the events where
the Badgers scored highest in last
week's match against Illinois.
Wisconsin's only other reason-
ably strong event is the parallel
bars, where all-around performer.

maining events, the Badgers wer

If Michigan has any worrie
about this meet, it is over th
inexperience of Loken's team. Th
Wolverines, with only three sen
iors on the roster, will send a larg
number of freshmen and sopho
mores into today's meet.
This should be balanced by th
depth the team possesses. As Lok
en says, "We have so many fin
gymnasts in each event it will b
hard to decide who to, count." H
hopes, however, to have some per
form even though they will no

Headrick faces Northwestern's
Clyde Smith. Although Headrick
finished second in the Midlands,
ahead of Smith, both wrestlers
lost to MSU's Ron Oullet in
Kraft feels another crucial
match is at 118, where North-
western freshman Mark Massery
faces Midlands champion Jer-
ry Hoddy. Massery was a highly
touted high school wrestler, who,
according to Kraft, "looked good
at the beginning of the year, and
has come on strong after wrest-
ling badly at the Midlands."
BAY AGREES that the 118
match could be close, but he
feels that the crucial weights
will be 158 and 167. Michigan's
Jim Sanger will face Bill Laur-
sen, who has won both of their
previous encounters. However,
in last year's dual meet with
Minnesota, Sanger provided
a crucial victory against a
wrestler who had ,previously de-
The 167 match is a confronta-
tion between youth and exper-
ience. Michigan freshman Ritz-
man, wrestling his first varsity
match, faces senior Roger Ze-
man, in what could prove to be
the meet's deciding match.
Michigan will start another
freshman in addition to Ritz-
man, Rick Bolhouse, at heavy-
weight. Rounding out the Mich-
igan lineup are Tim Cech at 126,
Belknap at 134, Mark King at
142, Lane Headrick at 150, Jesse
Rawls at 177, and Therlon Har-
ris at 190.
IN ADDITION to injury prob-
lems, Michigan has been in-
consistent. Acknowledging this
problem, Assistant Coach Rick
Bay says "our chances of vic-
tory may depend on the kind of
day we have." Bay feels t h e
Northwestern team will be fired
up for the meet, particularly be-
cause "Kraft has never beaten
us, so they'll be out to get us."
