Hoosiers Race, Dive
To Co nference Titles

MSU Grapplers Nab Big Ten Mat Crown

Acting Associate Sports Editor
IOWA CITY-A week ago almost
everyone predicting the outcome
of this year's Western Conference
Swimming and Diving champion-1
ships was sure to pick Indiana.
There weXe those, though, who
had doubts about this prognosti-
cation. These ,few traveled to the
land of corn wealth last week un
der the auspices of the Michigan
swimming team hoping to do a
little upsetting,
Unfortunately for them, the
soothsayers proved correct, and
the Hoosiers picked up their sixth
cosecutive Big Ten title, while
the Wolverines added to their
string a sixth consecutive runner-
up position.
Hoosiers Get Good Challenge
But they made a meet out of
this gathering of swimmners and
*divers, the Michiganders did, be-
fore they fell. They gave Indiana
some dark moments and a few
serious doubts along the way. They
fought like Wolverines right down
to the final race.
Michigan kept right up with the
winners in first places with seven,
while two went to Michigan State
and one each to Northwestern and
Ohio State. Still,, the margin of
victory, due to the greater Indiana
depth was 471-4061/2. The Spar-
tans stayed in the meet for a
while, finally totaling 325, consid-
erably ahead of the fourth-place
Buckeyes' 249.
Repeat Performances
In "the course of the meet seven
individual titles were successfully
defended, while one American and
six Big Ten records were reset. Ev-
ery one of the 16 swimming events
set a new mark for the Iowa Field-
*housePool, Four of the defended
titles were by Michigan men.
Paul Scheerer turned the trick
twice, in, the 100- and 200-yard
breaststroke races, in addition to
swimming the second leg on the
winning medley relay team. Bill
Farley and Bill Groft were the
other successful title defenders for
the Blue in the 500-and 50-yard
MSU's Gary Dilley retained his
two backstroke crowns, and OSt's
Bob Hopper kept the 200-yard in-
dividual medley crown for the
second year in a row, gaining a
conference record in the process.
Freestyle Combo Sets Mark
The Wolverines earned one Big
Ten record when the 400-yard
freestyle relay team of Bob Hoag,
Captain Rich Walls, Ken Wiebeck
and Groft converted their com-
bined sprints into a 3:09.2 clock-
ing, trimming more than two sec-
onds off State's year old mark.
Indiana, having no defending
titleholders on its squad, made up
for it with the meet's other four
record breaking performances.
The first went to sophomore Bill
Utley in' the 200-yard freestyle.
He broke from the pack on the
dive and no one came close to him
.s he wiped Farley's year-old
mark off the slate with a 1:43.9.
'M' Champs Dethroned
Then Ken Webb beat defend-
ing- champ Carl Robie in the 400-
yard individual medley with a
4:17.3 performance. Australian re-
cruit Bob Windle knocked off an-
other Wolverine defending champ,

earn a record of 16:50.4.
These three Hoosiers, along with
Scott Cordin, teamed in the final
event of the meet, the 800-yard
freestyle relay, to set a new Big
Ten and American record, again
at the expense of the Wolverines.
The time was an incredible 7:02.6,
an average of about 1:45.6 per
man. Adding to this incredulity,
Michigan's time was only :00.4 off
the pace.
The race was extremely close all
the way, and the winner was not
distinguishable until the end of
the last lap. Windle's 1:44 split
finally iced the crowd pleaser
which included eight of the fast-
est 200 yards ever sprinted.
Three Wins
Groft, besides his 50-yard sprint
win and anchor of the freestyle
relay team, also anchored the
medley relay team to equal
Scheerer's feat of three first place
performances. Rees Orland swam
the backstroke leg of the relay
and Tom O'Malley the butterfly.
The win in this event was in

But MSU's fans had the most
to cheer about as the Spartans
grabbed the team title in the
1966 edition of the Big Ten
wrestling championships held last
Friday and Saturday.
Michigan finished a close sec-
ond with Minnesota hot on its
heels in third.
The championships, billed in
advance as a three-way fight be-
tween the defending champion
Wolverines, the Spartans, and the
Gophers, ran true to form as the
trio pulled away quickly and were
never threatened. Wisconsin fin-
ished a distant fourth and Ohio
State a way-off-the-pace fifth.
Tight Finish
"The top three were close,"
commented Assistant Coach Den-
ny Fitzgerald. "A difference of
a match or two anywhere could
have easily changed the stand-
ings." MSU eked out the cham-
pionship by only four points over
Michigan. The Wolverines, in turn,
finished only a scant two points
ahead of Minnesota.
"MSU simply qualified more
men for the finals," explained
Fitzgerald. A check of the con-

Despite the loss of its three-year
monopoly on the championships,
Michigan still had some bright

Trusty Twosome
The Spartan supporters were,
of course, referring to 123-pound
dynamo Bob Fehrs and heavy-

The dynamic duo fought off all
challengers enroute to their re-
spective crowns and afterwards
had enough left to ham it up for

large part due to O'Malley's fly
leg against Kevin Berry, Indiana's
Australian gold medal winner in
that stroke in the 1964 Olympics.
O'Malley took off with determina-
tion, and glided his 100 yards out
faster than the Hoosier champ,
leaving a slight lead for Groft to1
work with.
Berry's only first came in the
200-yard fly, in which he touched
out Robie by :00.2. Robie fell
behind and had to put on a burst
at the end, but he fell just short
of beating his Olympic opponent.
Diving was supposed to be In-
diana's event again as it was last
year, And perhaps it was as Ken.
Sitzberger took both firsts for
the Hoosiers. But they weren't as
strong as they were heralded to be.
Divers Improve
Last year the margin of Indi-
ana's divers over Michigan's div-
ers was more than the Hoosier's
victory margin in the Big Ten,
meet, over 40 points. This year,
Coach Dick Kimball's charges de-
creased that margin by about half
that total, dropping only 11 points
on the one-meter board and 10 at
three meters.
Bruce Brown ,hitting well on
virtually every dive, took second
place in both events. His total of
912.65 was less than nine points
from Sitzberger's. Fred Brown and
