Minnesota finished fourth in the
1958 Conference meet, and this
year supports a balanced squad
with many good and few outstand-
ing individuals. The Gophers come
here Feb. 21.
What chance does Michigan have
of beating any or all of these up-
coming opponents? A wrestling
team is only as good as its indi-
vidual members, so a consideration
of individuals is in order.
Mike Hoyles, Wolverine junior,
is one of the Conference's best at
123 pounds. How he stands in rela-
tion to Iowa's Larry Moser, 1958
Big Ten runnerup at 123; will be
determined this Saturday. Minne-
sota's Ron Andrews may also give-
Hoyles some trouble.
Michigan captain Larry Murray,
130, will have stiff competition

Sophomores To Be Picked
Jim Blaker, 147, should have
little trouble improving on his
3-2-1 record at Iowa. Coach Cliff
Keen must select from four able
sophomores -- Don Corriere, Dick
Fronczak, Dennis Fitzgerald, and
Karl Fink-to fill the 157, 167, and1
177 positions. Iowa gets stronger
as the weights progress.
Heavyweight Fred Olm, 5-1-1 for
the season, should improve that
record in the coming weeks. One
of Iowa's three heavies is unde-
feated, but has competed in only
five of seven meets.

Four of the finest seniors In
Michigan basketball in recent
years are readying themselves for
a final showdown at East Lansing
this Saturday.
Michigan State's Johnny Green
and Bob Anderegg and Michigan's
George Lee and M. C. Burton are
looking forward to the weekend
with the present Big Ten race,
revenge and personal statistics all
jammed in their thoughts.
Holds First Place
Green and Anderegg will be
most concerned about holding
MSU in first place in the present
Conference title chase. This two-
some helped the Spartans tie for
first place two years ago and
finish runnerup last season.
Lee and Burton are interested in
getting Michigan back in the
chase in order to win their first
crown in their three years. The
Wolverine pair, two of the most
heralded prepsters ever to come
out of state, aided Michigan's fifth
place finish in 1956-57-the high-
est standing Coach Bill Perigo has
had at Ann Arbor.
The Wolverine seniors are re-
membering the 79-69 defeat hand-
ed them by State last year, while
the Spartan duo would like to even
the overall series with Michigan.

THINKING ABOUT THE "BIG ONE"-Michigan's co-captains
M. C. Burton (standing) and George Lee pause a moment from
practice as the Wolverines prepare for their only meeting of the
year with Michigan State. Burton and Lee will be facing MSU for
the fourth and final time of an exciting three-year series.

An outstanding member of one
of the best crops of sophomores
ever to appear on the Michigan
winter sport scene is all-around
gymnast Richard Monpetit.
The stocky sop: joins sprinter
Tom Robinson, swimmer Frank
Legacki and cager John Tidwell
as a member of a group of year-
lings that seem destined to engrave
their names next to some of the
all-time greats in Michigan ath-
letic history.
Three-Meet Winner
In all three meets held so far
this season, the Canadian young-
ster has won the all-around gym-
nast title-a coveted honor which
goes to the performer who piles
up the highest total of points in
the five gymnastic events, exclud-
ing the trampoline and tumbling
Hailing from Verdum, Quebec,
which is a small town just outside
Montreal, the sophomore is one of
many performers gym coach Newt
Loken has succeeded in luring
from our northern neighbors.
Last year's captain and one of
Michigan's all-time gymnastic
greats Ed Gagnier, along with
present team members Nino Mar-
ion and Wolfgang Dozauer all are
from the land of the Maple Leaf.

Gymnast Monpetit Joins Soph Elite

Living in a area where hockey
is almost a religion, Monpetit
played the Canadian national
game as a member of his high
school team. This sport along with
baseball, which he confesses was
his favorite, occupied most of his
time until he discovered gymnas-
tics at the age of fifteen.
-Quick To Learn
Introduced to the sport by Fritz
Besslich, who had competed for
Germany in the Olympic games,
he caught on fast, making his high
school team and eventually de-
veloping into one of the top Cana-
dian junior stars.
Monpetit, who found gymnastics
"challenging" and "diversified,"
concentrated on the sport in his
last year of high school and it paid
off the following summer when he
won the Canadian Junior National
Monpetit had met Marion and
Gagnier while competing in sev-
eral gym meets and the following
fall joined them after he received
an athletic scholarship tender
from Michigan.
Concentrates on High Bar
This winter he is going to con-
centrate on the high bar, an event
he must master if he wants to
fulfill his Olympic Game ambi-
tions. He and Marion, both mem-

bers of the Canadian Pan-Ameri-
can team which will compete in
Chicago this summer, hope to
represent their country at Rome
in 1960.
Comparing Monpetit to Gagnier,
who competed for Canada at Mel-
bourne in 1956, Loken said, "Rich
has an important competitive
quality which Ed also had, that of
coming through under fire. This is
essential, for gymnastics is a sport
which puts a great deal of pres-
sure on the individual."
The sophomore's ambitions aside
from thoughts of a Big Ten gym
title and a free trip to Italy, are
to earn a master's degree in physi-
cal education and become the first
gymnastics coach at the Univer-
sity of Montreal.
