Grapplers oppose

potent Spartans


Michigan's wrestling team will
face its most difficult test of the
year today at 3 p.m. in East Lan-
sing at Jenison Fieldhouse when
they go up against Michigan State,
currently ranked third in the na-
The Wolverines were ranked
seventh at the beginning of the
season, but injuries, eligibility
problems, and inexperience have
caused the grapplers to lose this
lofty perch.
Nevertheless, the meet promises
to be a good one. Michigan State
Coach Grady Peninger notes that
Michigan should be favored in the
177-pound bracket, and adds up
that the matchups at 118, 150, and
126 should be toss-ups. This leaves
six weight classes, and Peninger
feels that State will be favored in
all of them.
HE ADDS quickly ,however, that
in a match between Michigan and
MSU, "it's just like flipping a
coin-you hope everything i comes
out OK."
Michigan Coach Cliff Keen
agrees that a Michigan victory
would be an upset, and explains,
"State has more state champions
on their second string then we
have starting."
State is indeed loaded. Five Big
Ten champions return from last
year's squad, as do two others who
placed in the conference, and only
three of these returnees have been
able to hold onto their starting
THEY ARE Jack Zindel, last
year's 177 pound Big Ten cham-
pion who is wrestling at 190 this
year; Pat Karslake, who was
fourth in the conference at 167
pounds last year and is currently

undefeated; and Keith Lowrance,I
last year's Big Ten champ at 137,
whose only loss this year in the
142-pound bout has come at the
hands of Iowa State's fabled Dan
Zindel will face Michigan's
Therlon Harris, who has previous-
ly wrestled a close match with the
MSU senior, while Karslake will
face Tom Quinn in what could be
a very close match based on com-
parative performances against
common opponents. Lowrance will
lock up with Michigan's Mark
King, in what could be a lopsided
Spartan victory.
IN ADDITION to the 167 bout
between Karslake and Quinn,
Wolverine hopes could be bolstered
in the 134-pound and 158-pound
brackets. Michigan sophomore Ty
Belknap faces highly touted fresh-
man Tom Milkovich in the 134-
pound class, which will be close if.
recent performance is a guide.
Milkovich eked out a one point
win over Iowa's Don Briggs, while
Belknap was deprived of a tie with
Briggs by a referee's decision.
The 158 pounders, Jim Sanger

from Michigan, and either Tom
Muir or George Radman from
MSU, may also find themselves
embroiled in a close contest. The
key to this match will be the emo-
tional levels reached by the con-
testants, as eaCh has managed
to lose matches he was expected
to win; and vice versa.
Other close match-ups include
those at 118, where Jerry Hoddy
faces Spartan Greg Johnson; 126,
where Wolverine Jim Hagan will
face either Lon Hicks or last year's
Big Ten runner-up, Gary Bissel;
and 150, where Lane Headrick
faces MSU's Ron Qullet.
will be favored in his match with
State's Dave Ciolek at 177, while
Green Giant heavyweight Vic.
Mittelberg, who won the Macca-
biah Games championship last
year in Israel, is favored in his
bout with Michigan heavyweight
Rick Bolhouse.
Bolhouse, who will be the last
Wolverine to compete, might pull
an upset if the meet depends on
his performance, because he has
proven in the past to be a clutch
performer in tight spots.




Illini confront Wolverines;
Gymnasts end home season

Remember those frivolous days
leading up to November 22, 1969?
There was a football team from
Columbus, Ohio that supposedly
could give the then-mighty Min-
nesota Vikings a good run f o r
their money.
Also during those aforemen-
tioned days there w a s another
football squad from Ann Arbor.
This Ann Arbor group was con-
sidered good competition for the
Buckeyes, but n o t nearly good
enough (After all, t h e Vikings
were a super team). Of course
fans everywhere believed Ann Ar-
bor didn't "stand a chance," in-
cluding the Toledo U. student who
took -Columbus and gave 28
points (He lost).
EVEIYONE IS aware of the re-
sult of the November meeting, but

wolverines seek to track down win

The track team heads to Madi-
son, Wisconsin today in what
should prove to be one of the
most important meets of the en-
tire season. The thinclads will be
trying to maintain a perfect'life-
time record against the Badgers,
plus they will be trying to defeat
the defending Big Ten Champion
of the past two years.

This will prove to be no easy
task because Wisconsin has al-
most the entire team back from
last year, and where they did suf-
fer from graduation, new run-
ners have sometimes more than
adequately replaced them.
LEADING Wisconsin will be
Greg "Grape Juice" Johnson who
will be competing in four events
-the 70-yard high hurdles, 70-
yard low hurdles, 60-yard dash,
and the long jump. His bests in
the above events are :08.6 in the
highs, :07.8in the lows, :06.3 in
the 60, and 24'11" in the long
Michigan will send Godfrey
Murray and Greg Sypax against
Johnson in the hurdles events,
Gene Brown in the 60, and I r a
Russell and Mark Rosenbaum in
the long jump. Murray has run
:08.5 in the highs and :08.0 in the
lows, while Syphax has run :08.2
in the lows. In the 60, Brown has
a definite advantage since he has
a best time of :06.0 in this event.
Russell has jumped 24' while Ros-
enbaum has gone 22'5" in the long
jump, so they will have their work
cut out for them against Johnson.
ALL OF the remaining events
will be pretty evenly matched with
either Michigan or Wisconsin
having a slight advantage.
Wisconsin will be strong in the
middle distance and distance
events, plus the high jump and
triple jump, while Michigan shows
its strength in the shorter dis-
tances and the rest of the field
The strongest show of force by
Wisconsin will be in the 880 yard
run, where they have Mark Win-
zenreid (1:50.0) and Don Vandrey
(1:51.2). They will oppose Paul
Armstrong who has turned in two
1:51.2 times so far this season..
Michigan appears to be strong-
est in the shot put and pole vault.
Giulio Catallo (54'31") and Paul
Toran (49'3") have a definite ad-
vantage over Wisconsin's top shot-
putter, John Dittburner, who has
a best toss of 47'.7

IN THE pole vault, Michigan
will be without the services of
their top vaulter, Larry Wolfe, who
is suffering from a leg injury.
However, Michigan's second vault-
er, Ron Shortt, still has a foot ad-
vantage over Wisconsin's top
vaulter, with a best of 15'6".
Michigan's distance events will
be led by Rick Storrey and Norm
Cornwell in the 1000-yard run, Phil
Pyatt in the mile, and Ken "The
Goat" How in the two-mile run.
In the shorter distances, Michi-
gan will have George Drew and
Lorenzo Montgomery in the 440,
Eric Chapman and John Lowe in
the 600, and Trevor Matthews and
Gene Brown in the 300.
THE FINAL two events of the
meet which show stiff competition
are the high jump and the triple
jump. In the high jump, John
Mann has a best jump of 6'10%"
and will face Wisconsin's Pat Mat-
zdorf (7'0") and Joan Huff (6'10").
If Warren Bechard is healthy in
the triple jump, he has the pos-
sibility of going 48'8" which is
as far as his nearest competitor
from Wisconsin has gone.
To add to the importance of
this meet, the Michigan track
squad has not lost a dual meet
since February 1, 1964, and there-
fore must win this meet if they
want to continue their win streak.
Otherwise, a new win streak will
have to begin next weekend
against Michigan State.

General Notices

not so many are aware that the
Michigan gymnastics team is in
a position today similar to that
of Columbus.
Following the basketball gam
today, at about 4:15 p.m., Illinois
will take the Events Bldg. floor
to challenge what in a y be the
greatest U.S. collegiate gym squad
of all time. No other school has
come close to their record 164.5 set
earlier this season at, of all places
Columbus. Illinois, on the other
hand, should be included among
the top five or six teams in the
country since they have scored in
the 160's.
Michigan carries a string of 30
straight dual meet victories into
today's match but the, Illini are
also undefeated this season. Thus,
the Wolverines are cast as the un-
beatables and Illinois, the "not-
CAN THE Illini upset Michigan?
Such an occurence doesn't appear
likely. The home surroundings in
addition. to the caliber of the comk
petition should be sufficient to
easily propel the Wolverines past
the opposition. Furthermore, for
four seniors, today's appearance
will be their last at home.
The four include the following:
Captain RonRapper, NCAA Par-
allel Bars Champion, Georges
Huntzicker, 1968 NCAA Trampo-
line Champion, 1969 NAAU Tram-
poline Champion, and 1969 final-
ist in the NCAA floor exercise
championships, all-arounded Sid
Jensen, 1969 runnertup to Michi-
gan junior, Rick McCurdy, for the
Big Ten all-around title, and BlltV
Mackie, a transfer who may very
well have been able to compete on
a regular basis at all-around with
any other team in thecountry.
COMMENTING ON his lineup
today Coach Newt token said he
wasn't planning a n y drasti
changes from the combination
that has scored under 162 only
twice this year. He did, however,
express caution about the match.
"Meets are won on each suc-
cessive weekend," he said, "not on
past laurels." Such caution is not
unwarranted because dual meets#
count one-hadf towards the con-
ference championship. Thus, a
team winning the dual meet race,
but finishing second in the Big
Ten meet to the dual meet run-
ner-up, could tie for the title.
To derail the Michigan express,
Illinois will send a talented linev
up that includes Ken- Barr, who
has scored an unbelievable 9.85
on the tricky side horse.
