ished themselves as contenders
this season's national cham-
pionship. Ten of the 11 swimmers

freestyle race the past two sea-
sons. At the past two Big Ten
Meets, he has won both sprints
and also holds both sprint records.
Virgil Luken took the 200-y d.
breaststroke championship and
finished fourth at 100 yards as a
sophomore last season. He was
beaten by Buckeye sophomore
Bruce Norvell Saturday but should
be ready for Dick Nelson and
Geza Bodolay Monday night.
Both Gopher relay teams made
the NCAA finals. The freestyle
team of John Bergman, Ralph Al-
len, Dan Crocker, and Jackman
tied Michigan State for the cham-
pionship. Crocker transfered to
Carleton but the other three are
still at Minnesota.
In the medley relay, Bud Erick-
sen, Luken, Bergman, and Allen
were fourth in the finals. This was
an all-sophomore team which
should be better than ever this
Three sophomores have demon-
strated that they are just as good
as the Gopher veterans. Mike
Stauffer has replaced Crocker in
the freestyle relay. He holds the
Minnesota freshman records in
the sprints. Against OSU, he took
a second and a third place.
