Michigan's gymnasts compiled
this season's highest score in the'
nation last Saturday against
Michigan State and Indiana.
Many thought the scoring was
too easy. Others said, "The team
slipped in the first two events.
Just think what the score would
have been if they had hit t h e i r
Whether or not the scoring was
too high, whether or not the team
could have scored higher, one
thing in particular was certain;
the Wolverines made mincemeat
of an opponent which had come
much closer to beating the team's
biggest threat for NCAA repre-
sentation, Iowa, than it had to
beating Michigan.
The meet started off like any
other Michigan-Michigan State
gymnastics meet. The Spartans
grabbed a half point lead in the
first two events. But the third
event was one of the most obvious,
turning points any athletic event
ever saw.
Michigan State had slipped on
the event, totalling only a 26..j





Michigan, on the other hand, put
on their best ring performance
this year by far. Rick McCurdy
started off with an excellent 9.1
which wasn't even good enough to
count in the top three. Sid Jen-
sen topped him by two-tenths of
a point, and Rich Kenney by a
tenth. Chuck Froeming anchored
the event and brought out a
rousing ovation from the 4000
plus crowd as he netted a 9.5
After the ring team's outstand-
ing 28.0 score, the whole squad
seemed to gell.
The trampoline team followed
with its best performance this
year, 27.8. Dave Jacobs led the
tramp trio with a 9.6. George
Huntzicker made up for his poor
showing against Ohio State by
earning a 9.4. Sophomore Tim
Wright added his best score of
the season, an 8.8.
The vaulting team slipped, but
the parallel bar and high bar
teams took up the slack with 27.5
and 27.55 toals, respectively. The
p-bar team even got its s c o r e
without the help of Dick Rich-
ards, who fell to a 7.95, one of his
worst outputs in a long while. Ron
Rapper was the mainstay with
a 9.35.
The momentum and assuredness
of the Michigan gymnasts even
affected the other two teams. The
Spartans were so tight on the
final event that one of the per-
formers fell off the high bar. In-
diana, not to be outdone in that
category, laid two on the mats.
After the meet, Indiana's assist-
ant coach, Jim Brown, concluded
that "because of the tramp, Mich-
igan should win the Big Ten
