Triangular 31' Wrestlers Blank Purdue

After their easiest victory of the
year, a 94-29 victory over Purdue
in a dual meet yesterday after-
noon, Michigan's swimmers took
on two tougher foes in a triangu-
lar meet - Michigan State and
Ohio State-and defeated them in
grand, record breaking style by
a margin of 209-159-104 last night
in Matt Mann Pool.
The shorter versions of the reg-
ular events proved the outlet for
five records by Wolverine swim-
mers-three individual efforts and
two relays.
Amazing Carl Robie lead the
way with two record setting indi-
vidual performances, one in the
400-yard individual medley and
the other in the 100-yard butter-
fly. Then in the last event he an-
chored the 800-yard freestyle re-
lay team which set a pool record
of 7:13.83. Bob Hoag, Rich Walls,
and Bill Farley shared this record
with him.

Paul Scheerer, unbeaten in
breaststroke competition this sea-
son, reset the pool record in the
100-yard race with a 1:01.05 tim-
ing. Scheerer also shared in the
record set in the 200-yard medley
relay along with Rees Orland, Tom
O'Malley, and Bill Groft. The
quartet turned in a time of 1:36.16
in the event, bettering the exist-
ing national record of 1:40.9 by
almost five full seconds.
None of these events are held in
regular dual meets during the sea-
son, although all but the medley
relay are part of the conference
and national championships at the
season's end. Thus they are good
for preparation as well as for
Busy Swimmer
Groft, besides his anchor leg of
the medley relay team, won the
50 and 100-yard freestyle sprints
in his best times of the year. Walls
was runnerup to him in the short-
er affair.

Junior O'Malley swam a very
strong butterfly race to finish
third behind Robie after 100
yards,- finishing in :54.83. And
Orland and Russ Kingery gave
MSU's Gary Dilley a hard race
before yielding to the Olympian
in the 100-yard backstroke to take
second and third respectively.
Bruce Brown continued his fan-
tastic diving by taking the only
diving event with 248.95 points.
His last dive, a near perfectly ex-
ecuted forward dive, two and a
half somersaults, tuck position,
awed the crowd and netted him a
total of 68.9 points. In all, Mich-
igan took eight of the 10 firsts,
MSU getting two.
Coach Gus Stager used just
about everyone on the roster, and
a few who, weren't, in the after-
noon meet, and still no Purdue
swimmer finished ahead of a Wol-
verine until the last event. In that
one, the 400-yard freestyle-relay,

Stager used a sophomore back-
stroker, a breaststroker, and a
distance man to make the race in-

a very respectable 2:04.56 in win-
ning the 200-yard individual med-
ley, and Craig Dwyer picked up
a first in the 200-yard breaststroke
in what turned out to be one of
the meet's best races.
Another highlight of the meetl
was Michigan's one-two finish in
the 200-yard butterfly by none
other than Farley and Kingery, a
freestyler and backstroke special-
ist, respectively.
Rounding Out
The other Blue firsts were taken
by diver Tom Meaden at three
meters, diver J. B. B'onelli at one
meter, and Robie in the 1000-yard
freestyle. Seconds were added in
these events by Greg Shuff, soph
Dan Rittschoff, and McDaid.
