Gymnasts third in Midwest

Open

By CHRIS TERAS
"W° did a good job for this stage
of the season," said gymnastics
coach Newt Loken after last week-
end's competition in the Mid-
west Qpen at Mt. Prospect. Ill.
In addition to about 25 men
from Michigan, there were over
200 gymnasts representing 24
schools in the meet, which was
considered a warm-up for the
coming season.
Individual performances were in
the spotlight as no official team
scores were kept.
The Wolverines most outstand-
ing individual achievements came
on the trampoline. This event,
however, was for all practical pur-
poses an exhibition because it has
been dropped from Big Ten and
NCAA competition.
Out of the meet's top six

bouncers, Michigan placed four
men, including a one-two finish
by Wayne Miller and George
Huntzicker. Miller, who is not an
official team member but is work-
ing out in preparation for future
international meets, was first with
a 9.25 score. Senior Huntzicker,
who was defending Midwest Open;
champion and is the defending!
NCAA champion (a special tramp-
oline event was held at the NCAA
championships last year) finished
right behind Miller with a 9:15
mark.
Michigan placed no more than+
one man among the best six final-
ists in each of the other events.
Sid Jensen was fifth in long
horse vaulting with an 8.45. AtI
the same time, he finished sixth;
in the all-around competition with+
a total score of 100.45.

DALLAS - James Street, the
dandy do-everything quarterback!
of the University of Texas, has
been selected Player of the Year
on the 1969 Associated Press All-'
Southwest Conference team. c
The SWC coaches picking the
team felt that Street's all-around
ability in being the man-behind-
the-throttle of Texas' Wishbone-
T made him the m o s t valuable
player in the league.
Street, ironically, was a shade
behind S o u t h e r n Methodist's
Chuck Hixon in balloting for a
first team quarterback berth.
Center Rodney Brand of Ar-
kansas and fullback Steve Werster
of Texas were the only repeaters
on the offensive platoon. On de-
fense, ends Mike Deniro, Texas

Texas Tech; and linebacker Cliff
Powell of Arkansas were repeat-
ers.
