the trampoline where former
NCAA champion and defending
conference titlist Ed Cole finished
on top. However, the Wolverines'
other finishers on the trampoline
were disappointing after they had
placed one, two and three in the
preliminaries. Frank Newman was

Chuck Clarkson had to settle for
Illinois took a big 24-10 lead
over Michigan in the all-around
competition which is compiled
from six different events in the
preliminary. This was a deficit
that the Wolverines had never ex-
pected nor one they could cope
with, even though they had more
qualifiers than Illinois, 19-16.
Too Much Power'
Said the blunt Pond, "We sim-
ply had too much power for any
team to cope with in a two-day
meet. Michigan just couldn't hold
together for such a sustained ef-
fort. But don't get me wrong; the
Wolverines have a good team and
it took a good team to beat them."
Agreed Newt Loken, Michigan
coach, "Illinois had too much
strength for anyone. With older,
more experienced performers like

Tonry and Grossfeld, the pressure
is always on the others, not them."
The Wolverines' young appara-
tus team, which had to keep pace
with Illinois' powerful tandem to
keep themselves in contention,
suffered from the "jitters" and
fell from their preliminary posi-
tions in many cases.
Montpetit Falters
Sophomore Rich Montpetit, a
case in point, turned in a compe-
tent, but for him disappointing,
day after qualifying first in the
side horse, he had to settle for
fifth in the final.
Al Stall earned himself a fine
reputation ?among other Confer-
ence coaches with his improving
performances. Although often ac-
cused of being erratic, Stall
seemed to lick his unsteadiness
most of the time.
Michigan's third all-around
competitor, Nino Marion, was
hampered by a sore back during
the weekend's action and unfor-
tunately, his performances showed
The Wolverines' second strong-
est event, tumbling, also suffered

Special to The Daily
IOWA CITY - Balance just
barely paid off for Minnesota's
wrestling team here yesterday as
the Gophers held off the com-
bined challenges of Iowa, Michi-
gan State and Michigan to win the
Big Ten team title.
In one of the tightest four team
finishes in the history of the Con-
ference meet, Coach Wally John-
son's Gophers amassed 50 team
points. Iowa, with 46 points, edged
Michigan State with 45 and Michi-
gan with 42.
Others Trail Behind
The other Conference, teams
trailed far behind. Illinois scored
26, Wisconsin 18, Northwestern
17, Indiana 16, Ohio State 11 and
Purdue 6.
Don Corriere, one of Michigan's
six sophomores in the meet, was
the only team member to win an
individual championship.
Facing Minnesota's Harry
Schlieff for the second time this
season, Corriere rolled up a work-
manlike 6-0 decision. Corriere beat
Schlieff, 8-1, earlier in the season.
Hoyles Loses
Michigan's other two finalists
were not as fortunate. Iowa's cat-
like Vince Garcia gave the home
crowd of 2,500 at Iowa Fieldhouse
an earlier opportunity to cheer
when he decisioned Michigan's 123
lb. Mike Hoyles, 4-1. Garcia took
down Hoyles with two seconds to

go in the first period and worked
from there.
Michigan State's Jim Ferguson
gave a sharp performance to deci-
sion Wolverine Dennis Fitzgerald,
4-0, for the 167 lb. crown.
Wolverine Coach Cliff Keen was
"extremely pleased" with the per-
formance of his young team. "We
were up in the thick of the running
until the last. If only a few breaks
had gone our way we could have
won it."
Wright Wins Award
The award for the outstanding
wrestler of the tournament, for
the first time in three years, went
to a man not from Michigan. Min-
nesota Captain Bill Wright, who
won the 177 lb. title from Iowa's
Jim Craig, was voted the award by
Conference coaches.
For this award and for the team
title, Minnesota Coach Johnson
said he was "very grateful." Min-
nesota last won the title in 1957

and Johnson said, "we had only
one individual champ then, and
had to rely on balance to win it
just like this year."
The Gophers scored points in
all but one weight class.
Down to Final I
The meet result was in doubt
until the final match. Iowa's Gor-
don Trapp needed to pin Michigan
State's heavyweight Tim Woodin
to give the Hawkeyes a first place
tie with Minnesota. But Woodin
rallied late in the bout for a 6-3
Michigan Captain Larry Murray
won his third place bout at 130 lb.,
routing Jim Lowe of Wisconsin,
9-1. Minnesota's Jim Reissteck
foiled Wolverine Jim Blaker's at-
tempt to win third place at 147-1b.,
Michigan flfs out of Iowa City
this morning and is scheduled to
arrive at Willow Run Airport at
1:14 p.m. today.

relayed it to Steve Bochen who
connected with a backhander to
knot the score.
Deciding Tally
But the deadlock was shortlived
as three minutes later Dick Hamil-
ton converted Ed Pollesel's re-
bound into what proved to be the
'deciding tally.
To the credit of the Wolverines,
they never quit trying. But they
just didn't have anything left for
the last period as the Spartans
wore them down and lit the red
light twice in the process.
Although play became ragged
in the closing minutes, the 3,000
fans in attendence realized that
they had seen one of the cleanest
and hardest fought games in quite
some time.
'Best Game'
Spartan coach Amo Bessone ap-
parently agreed, for he told Ren-
frew afterward that "it was the
best game I've seen in 10 years."
Renfrew ruefully nodded, "it was
one heck of a game.''

fortunes to a new low. Their final

losses, and one tie. Some consola-
