ymnasts Head into NCAA Showdown
By HOWARD KOHN
Michigan's gymnastics team
competes for the NCAA title to-
,:morrow in an opportunity made
possible by a team effort and a
change in the rules.
Coach Newt "Loken left yester-
day with his 15-member team for
Penn State, near the Allegheny
4 Mountains, to face 11 other teams
as Michigan's last winter sport
team with a chance for a national
The Wolverine gymnasts took
the Big Ten crown again this
year by edging out Michigan State
in the conference finals, after
losing to the Spartans during the
regular dual meet season, and
then came within 0.7 points of
topping the East Lansing lads in
the Mideast regionals.
Michigan finished third in the
regionals, behind Southern Illinois
and State, but still qualified for
the finals. Thus Newt Loken's
squad returns to the national
scene after a year's absence.
One of the contributing factors,
besides work and ability, is the
indecision of the NCAA rule-
makers. Two years ago, when
Michigan captured a third, the.
finalists were determined by re-
gional play-offs with the top three
teams from each region advancing
to a preliminary round to deter-
mine team totals. Out of the pre-
liminaries the top ten gymnasts
in each event then battled for in-
Last year, the rulemakers de-
cided to remodel the qualifying
system to resemble that of basket-
ball. The top teams in the four
regionals were paired off in semi-
final meets, the two finalists meet-
ing for the championship. Other
colleges, including Michigan, sent
their top performers to the finals
for individual titles.
This year, NCAA officials have
returned to the 12-team system,
with the team standings to be de-
cided on a one-shot basis tomor-
row and the individual places on
In addition to the Mideast quali-
fiers, there will be California,
Washington and UCLA from the
West; Iowa State, Arizona and Air
Force from the Midwest; and Penn
State, Temple and Springfield
from the East.
Penn State's Nittany Lions de-
feated Washington for the first-
place laurels last year and are
defending the title at their home
gymnasium. However, the last time
Michigan went east, to Pittsburgh
in 1963, it took the team trophy
and five individual titles.
The Wolverines will be headed
by AAU champion Wayne Miller
on the trampoline, Phip Fuller in
the floor exercise, Chip Fuller in
vaulting, Rich Blanton on the
rings, and Gary Vander Voort on
the parallel bars.
Vander Voort will also be a top
candidate for the all-around title,
along with Dave Thor of MSU,
who was first in the regionals, and
Frank Schmitz of Southern Illinois
who took second.
Schmitz is the defending NCAA
champ in floor exercise and on the
tramp. A fall into the springs,
which helped Schmitz win last
year as the Wolverines' Gary Er-
win slipped during his routine,
now prevents Schmitz from com-
peting on the trampoline this
year. The SIU senior suffered a
mishap during his regional per-
formance and did not qualify for
Saturday's individual competition.
Jim Curzi of Michigan State will
be back to try for two straight
titles on the high bar and the
parallel bars. Dan Millman of
California, who took first on the
long horse and second on the
trmpoline, will be the only other
returning 1965 titlist.
A comparison of team strength,
on the basis of regional scores,
puts Michigan in third-close be-
hind SIU and MSU and barely
ahead of California, Iowa State
and Penn State.
