It was almost a perfect meet.
It's just that Michigan State was
.375 of a point more perfect thai
Both gymnastic powers (one-
two in the Big Ten last year)
scored over the magic 190 figure.
Both teams gave extraordinary
There was only one problem, the
Wolverines came out on the short
end, losing to the Spartans, 190.8-
Still, the season is far from over.
The Wolverines lost to the Spar-
tans last year and came back to
take the conference crown.
According to Michigan State
coach George Szypula, "Michigan
was just a little shaky in spots
yesterday," and it was those spots
that hurt the Wolverirres most.
The meet, held before a capacity
crowd in the Sports Building, was
lost in the first three events, the
vaulting, floor exercise and side
horse as Michigan fell 1.8 points
Michigan, usually strong in
vaulting, finished only with a
26.825 compared to a 27.45 for
State. Sophomore Fred Rodney
fouled on his first vault, receiving
an 8.2 instead of the 9.2 he would
have netted without the fault. In
the end, this foul turned out to be
the difference. Still, the lost can't
be blamed on Rodney, who re-
corded a 9.1 in the event against
Eastern Michigan last Saturday.
Then both the Wolverines' side
horse and floor exercise squads
missed while the Spartans re-
ceived 27.15 and 27.90 respectively.
Part of the 2-point difference
after the first three events could
have made up by a healthy Dave
Jacobs who was below par in the
free ex. still hurting from a sore
ankle and by Wayne Miller, who is
sidelined by two sprained ankles
but will be ready for undefeated
Iowa a week from Saturday.
Coach Newt Loken summed it
up when he noted that "it started
badly when we received one point
deduction in vaulting. The side
horse team missing a little didn't
help and even the floor 'ex' wasn't
as sharp as usual." Loken did
have praise though for the tramp
and high bars teams.
Jacobs, who injured his ankle
against Western Michigan gave
the greatest single performance of
the afternoon receiving a 9.7 on
and second in the 'p' bar. If he
does this well when he is hurting,
his healthy performances must be
something to behold.
Szypula also praised the AAU
floor ex champ Tob Towson,
NCAA ring champ Ed Gunny and
captain Ron Aure, his key man,
all lit their spots.
The Michigan State coach not-
ed that he can now face Biggie
(Munn) again, the MSU athletic
director with a smile, something
he couldn't do after the Spartans
three point loss to Illinois last
weekend in Champaign. Szypula
said that his team was really sad
Loken was amazed at MSU's
loss, saying "I can't see how the
Spartans could lose to the Illini."
Referring to his own team's
chances the rest of the way, the
Michigan mentor said "We're still
in there. We'll come back in the
Big Ten meet in March."
