... if he gets a chance to try,
THE SECOND BEST TEAM in the United States won the NCAA
Gymnastics Championships last weekend in Seattle.
The best team couldn't make it.
The NCAA Gymnastics Championships could have easily been
called the Big Ten Championships as the weekend turned into a lop-
sided contest with the Big Ten winning four of the seven individual
awards and capturing the team title. The conference representative,
Iowa, was the first place team and won one of the individual medals,
Michigan won one, Michigan State another, and Illnois the fourth.
Even further, the Big Ten, was favored to win two others. Only the
all-around title, gobbled .up by Washington's Mauno Nississen, was
never challenged by the iidwest powers.
Had the NCAA rules allowed two Big Ten teams to go the na-
tionals, it is a safe bet that, Michigan, as the other team, would have
been champion or would have been edged by Iowa to end up as second
Instead, Michigan's performers had to suffer back in Ann Arbor
as some teams, obviously inferior, competed or, as happened with
Memphis State, declined the invitation to the nationals.
THE INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCES of the Michigan gymnasts
was about what was expected. Ron Rapper ran away with the parallel
bar title, Dave Jacobs took runner-up spot in the floor exercise, Chuck
Froeming finished fourth on the rings, Dick Richards landed in
seventh position in the parallel bars, and Sid Jensen and Rick
McCurdy were ninth and tenth all-around.'
The most impressive occurrence of the championship, however,
had to be the dominance of Big Ten competitors. Over one quarter
of the individual finalists were from the Big Ten. Three of the events
were runaways, the winner led by more than, a point. All three of
them were taken by the Big Ten. In the rings, one of the events the'
Big Ten diid not take, its contestants placed third, fourth, and fifth.
The third place score was only ai quarter of a point off the pace.
The team championship were won by Iowa in a meet which the
Hawkeyes dominated from the beginning, at no time falling behind
runnerup Penn State.
IN ALL FAIRNESS it must be admitted that if one person had
to be picked as the most impressive, it would be Nissinen. Besides
winning- the all around title by more than five points, he made the
finals in three individual events, getting two thirds and a seventh.
His score In a fourth event would have qualified him for the finals
there too, except he hadn't qualified in his conference meet.
But excluding the all-around competition, it was the Big Ten
pacing the action. As Illinois' vocal coach, Charlie Pond, noted after
the championship, "This really shows how strong our conference is.
If Michigan had been here as a team, I wouldn't have been sure who
would have' won, but I would be. sure that Michigan and Iowa would
have been the top two."
Most of the Big Ten coaches were extremely upset over the con-
ference only being allowed one representative. "I used to think that
the NCAA's were supposed to be among the top teams in the country,"
noted Michigan State's George Szypula. "After this past weekend, I
see I was wrong."
Exactly what will be the situation in the future is uncertain. The
coaches this weekend voted down a measure which would allow the
Big Ten and other conferences a chance to qualify more than one
team. The matter, however, is being placed on the NCAA Executive
Committee's agenda for thir next meeting. Whether sanity will prevail
there is uncertain. It just might be interesting to find out what hap-
pens if for once it does.

walked. Both runners then scored
on Greg Tolston's long double to
right center field. Tolston moved
to third on a single by Eshbach
and scored on the front half of a
double steal.I
The Titans knocked Burton out
in the eighth with a walk and a
single, but Michigan reliever Mark
Carrow extinguished that threat
by inducing Tolston to foul out.
Before Burton was removed, he
struck out six, walked three, and
yielded only five hits in 72/s in-
nings. Miller termed Burton's
performance, "just fantastic, he
only made one bad pitch."
In his 11/3 innings in relief Mark
Carrow walked only one and gave"
up no hits.}
Michigan almost pulled t h e
game out of the fire in the bottom
of the ninth. With one out, For-
sythe was safe at second when
Liskiewicz threw away his ground-
er. He advanced to third 'on a

The Wolverine thinclads kicked l
out their indoor jams this past
weekend as they opened their out-1
door season at the Lexington Re-
Coacn Dave Martin's cinclermen
wer'e impressive in their outdoor
debut. Led by freshman pole-
vaulter Larry Wolfe, who'set a
'new meet record with a 16' 1 F<"
effort, the Wolverines managed to
place an ertry among the top five
in seven events.
"We did well considering it
was our first outing," Martin com-
mented in reference to the Wol-
verines' performance.
IN ADDITION to Wolfe's first
place finish in the pole-vault, the
Wolverines copped two second
place finishes. Larry Midlam, who
finished first in the 70 yard high
hurdles in the Big Ten Indoor
Championship, took a second in
the 120 hurdles, a tenth of a sec-
ond off the pace set by Wisconsin's
highly-touted Mike Butler.
The Wolverines' two mile relay
team also placed second behind
the Badgers' entry. Norm Cornwell
ran the first half mile, followed
by Rick Storrey, Paul Armstrong,
and John Thornton.
CORNWELL ALSO ran the first
leg of the four mile relay Friday
afternoon, leading the Michigan
contingent to a third place finish
behind Purdue and Wisconsin.
Cornwell was followed by Ron4
Kutschinski, Armstrong, and Stor-
rey, with Storrey turning in the
best time with a 4:19 flat clocking.
In the sprints, the Wolverines
also fared well, with freshman
speedster Gene Brown taking a
fourth in the 100, while the 440

relay squad, consisting of Mid-
lam, Leon Grundstein, Lorenzo
Montgomery and Sol Espie, finish-
ed third.
