Loken. He went on to add that,
"Michigan State only lost two
men from last year's team. Michi-
gan State finished third behind
Michigan and Illinois in the Big
Ten championship meet."
"Although the team, as a whole,
did a great job last year, most of
the credit for Michigan's success
was due to the leadership and all-
round ability of Captain Richard
Montpetit," said Loken.
Montpetit, a Canadian entrant
in the 1960.Olympic Games, com-
peted in every event for the Wol-
verines. He accomplished a rarely
seen feat by capturing four Big
Ten titles.

THE RIG ThREE-That's, from/"eft, Tom Osterland, Jim Hynds, and Gil LaRose who are being
counted upon by Gymnastics Coach Newt Loken to lead the Wolverines into their second straight Big
Ten title, Osterland, who is the team captain as well as the captain of the cheerleaders, is the NCAA

except for Lehigh the top wres-
tling powers of the East."
Concerning MSU, Keen said,
"They're really going to be load-
ey-ntr only do they have a great
deal of their team returning, but
also they have some really good
men that can't even break into
the starting lineup."
Asked if MSU might be consid-
ered the pre-season favorites for
the Big Ten championship, the
Wolverine coach stated, "Well,
they've been favored before, and
have lost, badly. Theres a lot of
power in the Big Ten. We're not
conceding them anything."
Iowa, Illinois, and Minnesota
round out the top contenders.
"All of them have a lot of meat,
a lot of horses," remarked the
Michigan mentor.
Heavy Losses
"Minnesota lost 17 men at one
time or another last year due to

injuries. Now

no one, not even

MSU with all its depth, can with-
stand a blow like that. The Goph-
ers should really be up this year."
Not only that, but no team can
be really counted out. Northwest-
ern still has Rory Weber, two-
time Big Ten heavyweight cham-
pion, and other schools must be
expected to put up their own bids.
The Wolverines were going for
an undefeated season last year
when the Spartans came up for
the second year in a row to snap
the Michigan streak, 16-4. It was
the only dual meet of the sea-
son that the team lost both years.
Provide Incentive
These defeats alone should pro-
vide enough incentive ifor the
team, and added to this will be
the desire to outshineKeen's past
teams which have brought home
10 Big Ten championships in his
35-year coaching history at Mich-
igan, the longest of any coach
here.
.One difference from a number
of sports is that the Big Ten is
not the top wrestling conference:
Oklahoma State has won the
NCAA championship 22 times, in-
cluding last year, and Oklahoma
has also won the title and has
come in second (last year includ-
ed) just aboutas manyntimes as
Oklahoma State has won the top
laurels.

Takes Four Titles{
Besides winning the individual
all-round event, Montpetit took
titles iin parallel bars, high bars,
and still rings. Loken. was "ex-
tremely pleased by Moptpetit's ac-
complishments," terming him "a
great captain and leader."
Loken loses only two men from
his championship squad. Besides
his star performer, Montpetit,
Loken must do without the ser-
vices of tumbler, Jimmy Brown,
who is also lost through gradua-
tion. Brown was second in theI
NCAA tumbling meet. He finishedh
behind teammate Tom Osterland
and Illinois' returning star Hal
Holmes in the Big Ten Tumbling
championships. y
Captains Team
Osterland is this year's captain.
He is NCAA champion on trampo-
line. Osterland worked last year RICH MONTPETIT
