Wolverines finish in fourth,

Special To The Daily


BLOOMING'ON-An unherald-
ed Michigan team snuck off with
fourth place in the NCAA Swim-
ming Championships that ended
last night ,
As expected, Big Ten Champion
Indiana ran away with the team'
championship, scoring a record
427 points, 81 higher than the pre-
vious record, which they set last
year. Also finishing as predicted
were southern California, which
wound up second with 306 points,
and third place Stanford, which
totaled 190.
However, Yale, which was ex-
pected to challenge the front-run-
ners, fell to fifth place by scoring
only 160 points. The Wolverines
edged out the Eli's with 164 points,
as Michigan's divers came through
with 21 points on the three-meter
Wolverine diver Dick Rydze led
the way as he totaled 497.5 points
for third place. Indiana's Olympic'
bronze medalist d ~o of Jim Henry
and Win Young were the only ones
to top the Michigan sophomore.
Senior Jay Meaden's seventh and
junior Bruce McManaman's elev-
enth provided just enough points
to put the Wolverines in fourth.
UCLA with 102 points and sixth
place, Long Beach State at 82,
Ohio State at 61, plus Oregon and
Florida who both had 45, rounded
out the top ten. Michigan State
finished 13th with 38 points. t
On the final day of competition
Indiana swimmers took three firsts
to bring their number of event
victories to a record-tying nine.

Michigan's ruggers yesterday
swept a pair of games against the
Cleveland Rugby Club. The first
team, despite ragged play, won 8

their performance into an 11 to

first unit is disturbing in view

nament is a mere two weeks away.!

The forwards played with g r e a t
spirit, and made up for having
to play a man short for the great-
er part of the second period. Per-

Gary Jones and John. Weeks.
Colin Warbrick converted one of
these and scored another.
Next Saturday afternoon, t h e
two squads travel to East Lansing
to take on the Spartans. M o r e

will be necessary for Michigan to

The day began gloomily with a
steady cold rain and high
winds, but the patented Miami
sun finally broke through and
lifted the Wolverine spirits
enough to have everyone on the
team shoot in the 70's.
Keith Mohan, after his disas-
terious 83 of the previous day
snapped back to life and fired a
74 to tie for the low Michigan
score of the day and lowest
combined total of 303.

ed that, "Keith helped t h e

ishing with a 76 to supplement
his superb third round 71.
Randy Erskine, who was third
in last year's Michigan open,
ended up in third spot with 310.
Newton was very pleased with
the team's scoring and noted,
"The teams fifth place finish
was excellent when you consider
that they beat every Big Ten
team entered (all finished way
in the back), and that the'
top four teams are able to play
all year round."
Newton was also very enthu-
siastic over the teams future
prospects, "The team is strong
with a lot of depth and we could
sweep the Big Ten title."
The Wolverine linksnen will
have an opportunity to size up
all their Big Ten competition
when they play in the Robert

Kepler Invitational at Columbus
in two weeks.
Because of the closeness of
the finishers Newton was unable
to commit himself on who would
be chosen for the number one
spot, but he noted, "Mohan,
Sumpter, and Erskine will battle
it out for the top spot while
Christenson will probably hold
down fourth. The last two spots
will be fought for between the
rest of the team."
