The Wolverine gymnasts won
'nearly everything at the Big TenI
preliminaries last night.'
Nearly everything, that is.
The one thing they lost was the
one thing they wanted most, a
chance to compete in the NCAA
Even worse, Michigan failed in
its bid to become the conference
representative to the nationals by;
0.45 points after battling back
from a 2.5 point deficit.
The final score overall was
Michigan 188.55, Iowa 186.55. The
final score on the six events which'
count for the NCAA's was Idwa
161.55, Michigan 161:10..
Because of the preliminary re-
sults, the Wolverines, the Hawk-
eyes, and the third-place finisher
Illini will compete in today's team
finals at 2 p.m.
In addition, Michigan has al-
ready swept the all-around com-
petition and placed a large por-
tion of the team in tomorrow's in-
dividual competition at 7:30 p.m.
Michigan took first and second
place in the all-around competi-
tion with Rick McCurdy winning
with 99.775 points and Sid Jen-
sen second with 99.000 points.
Iowa's Bob Dickson was third af-
ter his 98.65 score.
