ellermann: Wrestling Success

Michigan Gymnasts Open Home Season

'f you had told Fritz Kellermann

impionships later, the scrappy

i then repeated as a Big Ten
le-holder last winter at 130..
It's a big switch from high
tool wrestling to that in col-
e," Kellermann explains the
rly mat disasters, "and lack of
perience and a little excess nerv-
mess were big blocks to me in
ose first two meets."
Kellermann wrestled while at-
iding Lansing Sexton High
hiool, where he broke into the
eup after ineligibility struck the
imber one man at 127 pounds. It
s this "first big incentive" that
it him to a second place in the
te tournament during his first
ar of competition and followed
a to the 133-pound Michigan
te title in his senior year.
Praises Coaches
Kellermanfl points to his coaches
fore talking of his own abilities.

eatest men in the business," says
llermann. "It was Iggy Konrad,
e of the best high school coaches

Looking back over his college

competition, Kellermann men-
tions his match last year with
Pittsburgh's Olympian Larry
Lauchle, who had placed second
nationally for two years, as a high-
light. "It was just one of those
matches when I knew I was ready.
I worked hard and beat him, 6-4."
Kellermann dropped only one
dual meet last year, that to Iowa's
Tom Hoff, whom Kellermann tags
as "one of the best wrestlers I've
ever competed against."
Competition To Come
Despite his four victories in as
many dual meets this winter, the
Wolverine star is conscious that
"the real competition is yet to
"I think I'm being handicapped
by the rule change that allows two
points for a first takedown and
only one for every takedown after
that," says Kellermann, whose
takedown is a -strong point. "And
now the match is slowed down
with the slower action."
Great Last Year
As for this year's team, Keller-
mann comments: "We're going to
have to go far to better last year's
squad. You just can't replace
people like Jim Blaker, Denny
Fitzgerald and Karl Fink all of a
sudden. But we've got lots of
talent and some determined sophs,
and we're improving all the time.
This year's is one of the best
balanced teams I've ever seen.'
Coach Keen is full of praise for
his 137-pound champ. "Fritz ranks
among the best wrestlers I've
coached. He learns fast, is very
quick, and is a great competitor."
Kellermann is earnest when he
says that "wrestling means a great1
deal to me. It keeps me working
hard, both at my studies and on
the mats. It's helped me to drive
toward something-to give me a
great deal of added incentive. And,
as you know, success breeds suc-

STAR 137-POUNDER-Fritz Kellerman, two-time Big Ten wrest-
ling champion, is undefeated in four meets this winter in the
'137-pound class. The Lansing senior lost only a single dual match
last season before going on to cop an individual conference title at
130 pounds.

Prior to the meet and exhibition,

OAKLAND, Calif. (M)-Kenneth
L. (Tug) Wilson, president of the
United States Olympic Commit-
tee, is trying to arrange a peace
meeting between the NCAA and
AAU, the Oakland Tribune' said
last night.
Four previous meetings between
the two groups have met with
little success. The NCAA has ad-
vocated formation of new federa-

tions to administer amateur ath-
letics, a function now held by the
Wilson was quoted that chances
of a showdown meeting to resolve
the situation appear good.
The NCAA yesterday at its
meeting in Chicago endorsed crea-
tion of new federations for track,
field, and gymnastics.'
The council's action on the new
federations was anticipated after
creation of both was endorsed by
the NCAA's'executive committee
Thursday. The move will further
open the break between the NCAA
and AAU.



Solverine Cagers Travel To Test Ability
against OSU; We'll Show Up,'-Strack

Preparing to meet Ohio State in
basketball is a very singular ex-
perience for a team and its coach.
Unless you're the world's big-
gest optimist, crazy, or perhaps
Cincinnati's coach, you just don't
expect your team to beat Ohio
State. Rather, you hope that they
won't completely rout your team
and that Buckeye Coach Fred
Taylor will show mercy and use
his reserves some.
Someone said that maybe it was
a good thing that Woody Hayes
doesn't coach the basketball team
too, and it seemed like a good
point. Wolverine Coach Dave
Strack says that Bump Elliott
wants him to score 50 points. It
may be an optimistic goal.
Possible Upset?
It's not that the Wolverines are
underdogs in this Saturday's
game, but if they won, it would
be the biggest upset since Cin-
cinnati beat the Yankees in the
World Series---if they would have.
Cincinnati 145, Philadelphia 128.
Chicago 6, Boston 0
Montreal 4, Toronto 2
MsU 5, cc 4

Invariably, the first question re-
porters ask an opposing coach is
will they show up. Strack says his
team will be there, which is a
good sign.
All this nonsense has set a new
trend in the Big Ten this year. In-
stead of rooting for the varsity,
everybody talks about their fresh-
men teams, hoping for next year
when John Havelicek, Jerry Lu-
cas, and Mel Nowell will have
This year, as they did last year,
coaches are trying all sorts of
techniques to stop the Bucks. Flor-
ida State double-teamed Lucas to
stop the big fellow from scoring.
He didn't, but he didn't shoot
either and Havlicek scored 22,
hitting 10-12 from the floor. The
Seminoles lost 72-57.,
St. Louis Ineffective
.St. Louis decided to hold the
ball. They did but the Buckeyes
didn't and the score was 21-2 in
a short time. "St. Louis didn't hit
a field goal for the first 13 min-
utes--they held the ball real
well, Strack observed.
Most coaches, however, stick
to realism and take steps which
will prepare their team to go on
the floor against Taylor's terrors.
They pick out their top scorer,
whom Havlicek will probably

on each arm while he practices.
