LOSE VALUABLE SENIORS:
Wrestlers Seek Crown

<*,

By JOHN McREYNOLDS
and DAVE KIMBALL
The Wolverine wrestling team
faces a tough season, headed by
showdowns with Michigan State
in dual and conference meets this
year.
Although his grapplers piled up
some high point totals, mat men-
tor Cliff Keen "would have need-
ed only ten more points" last
season to have been undefeated
and reign as league champs.
The Spartans won both encoun-
ters last year, each by four
points, due to a number of chance
happenings and some shrewd
planning on the part of the MSU
coach.
Dual Meet
In last year's dual meet with
the cross-state rivals, the Spar-

tans took the lower weights, just
as predicted, making it necessary
for one of the Maize and Blue
grapplers to pin just one State
wrestler, since a pin is worth two
more points than a decision vic-
tory.
The Spartans gained this ad-
vantage over the heavily-favored
Wolverines by playing a game
called defensive wrestling, staying
away from the opponent as much
as possible. In this manner they
managed to tie one man and pin
another when he finally became
unwary.
The Michigan men never gave
up, but just couldn't pull off the
pin.
In the conference meet several
Wolverines were eliminated unex-
pectedly to give MSU the win.

Lettermen returning to Coach
Cliff Keen's squad this year will
be Don Corriere, senior captain,
at either the 157- or the 167-lb.
bracket; junior Jack Barden, 177-
lbs. or heavyweight; senior Wil-
lard Root and senior Nick Armel-
egos, 123-lbs.; senior Fritz Kel-
lerman, 130-lbs.; senior John Hol-
lenbeck, 157-lbs.; and senior Guy
Curtis, 177-lbs. or heavyweight
"The year," says Keen, "will
be a rebuilding process, even
though two divisions, the 115- and
191-lbs., were eliminated."
Keen must replace six graduat-
ed stars from his reserves and
sophomores, "Mainly from the new
boys," he says, "but with Curtis
returning (from scholastic inelig-
ibility), we could do very well.
"If we'd only had Curtis last
year, even State would have been
'duck soup'." Curtis was unofficial
Big Ten champ last year in the
heavyweight division.
Coming up from the freshman
squad, Keen has a good deal of
talent.
Light Weights
In the lightweights, 123- and
130-lbs., there are Mike Palmais-
sino, Ohio state champion, Carl
Rhodes, and Ralph Bahna..
In the middleweights he has
Gary Wilcox of New York at 137,
Bill Florence and Keen's own son
Jim, at 147, and Wayne Miller at
157.
In the heavier weights he has
football player Mike Zuocola at
177.
These men, along with last
year's reserves, headed by John
Hollenbeck and Bill Blanton, will
have to replace the six graduates,
three of whom, Jim Blaker (147),
Captain Dennis Fitzgerald (177)
and Karl Fink (heavyweight) won
Big Ten titles and scored points
in the NCAA championships.
Besides those three there are
Ted Ludwig and Willard Root at
157 and 115 respectively.
Tough Schedule
Concerning this year's meets,
Keen surmised, "We've got a full,
tough schedule.
"On our first trip to the East
we will meet Navy, Hofstra in

who reported late from the bas-

and became the sixth man.
Dubie Returns
The question mark returnee is
Gerry Dubie, a star for the wol-
verines two years ago who became
ineligible and had to sit out the
'61 season. Although Murphy
hasn't heard from his former cap-
tain-elect, there is a strong possi-
bility that Dubie will be among
those present when practice be-
gins next spring.
In Senkowski the Wolverines are
blessed with one of the better
younger players in the country.
Although widely heralded, the
junior from tennis hot-bed Ham-
tramck was not expected to go as
far as he did as a sophomore. Only

one-two punch. Filling in for Sen-;
kowski at times while the latter
was injured,dTenney performed
admirably and will be a definite
threat to cop the conference num-
ber two singles title.

and Ron Linclau, from Grosse
Pointe.
1961 was a highly successful sea-
son for the Murphy-coached Wol-
verines. When the last match had
been completed Michigan showed
a dual meet record of 9-1 (9-3
including two exhibition matches
in Florida), a Big Ten title, its
third straight and sixth in the
last seven years, three Big Ten
singles champs, two conference
champion doubles teams, and an
NCAA finalist.
Lose Three Men
Gone will be Wayne Peacock,
number three; Bruce MacDonald,
number four; and Bill Vogt, num-
ber five. Peacock, in addition to
taking the conferenec number
three singles title, teamed up with
Senkowski for the number one
doubles crown as well, while Mac-
Donald and Vogt, both finalist
losers in singles, won the number
three doubles title at East Lansing
for the Maize and Blue.
After losses to the more experi-
enced Florida and Miami squads
to start the '61 season, the Wolver-
ines bounced back for a 9-0 shut-
out of Illinois, their first confer-

ence opponent and went on to a
successful year. The only loss came
at Northwestern's hands when
Vogt and Peacock were out of
action.
Title Favorites
The Wolverines were favored to
take the team crown at East Lans-
ing. They not only took it, but
they turned it into a near-rout.
In addition to Senkowski, Pea-
cock and Maentz winning singles
titles, the Senkowski-Peacock and
MacDonald - Vogt taking double
crowns, Vogt and MacDonald were
singles finalists, while Tenney, the
lone remaining entrant, was a
semifinalist in singles competition.
1961 was a successful season for
Murphy and the Wolverines, but
the Maize and Blue will need a
powerhouse to ward off the much-
improved Wildcats, Spartans, and
Hoosiers.
However, Murphy isn't used to
losing. Since coming to the Ann
Arbor campus in 1948 he has
guided the Wolverines to an amaz-
ing dual meet record of 124-21,
including a string of 47 straight
triumphs during the "golden da>
of 1955-57.

Scott Maentz are returning, Coach
Bill Murphy predicts quite a
scramble for the 1962 crown.
"Northwestern, (Michigan)
State, and Indiana will all be
strong," the Wolverine mentor
said, "especially the Wildcats."
Pose Threat
However, pessimistic as the high-
ly successful Murphy seems, the
Wolverines will pose a strong
threat to go all the way again
this year.
Besides retaining the services of
junior Senkowski, captain - elect
Tenney, and senior Maentz, Mur-
phy will welcome back one, and
possibly two veterans which will
bolster the overall team strength.
Returning for sure will be Tom
Beach, a senior from Kalamazoo.
Last year Beach alternated be-
tween the number six and seven
slots on the squad, finally being
given the reserve status of the
seventh position when Maentz,

who was Michigan's only three-
sport letterman last year, will add
late season depth and valuable
tournament points to the Wolver-
ine cause. The 210-lb. Grand Rap-
ids senior, whose other monograms
included football and basketball,
came out late because of his cage
duties, but once he rounded into
shape, he was hard to beat.
Although he was a state champ
while in high school, Maentz
passed up tennis his first year of
varsity eligibility. Nevertheless, he
came home from East Lansing, site
of the Big Ten championships last
spring, as number six singles titl-
ist. "He's a real competitor," Mur-
phy asserted.
Up from the frosh for added
depth will be two sophomores,
