Loken's Gymnasts Somersault to Ohio Stat
By MIKE BLOCK I
Michigan's gymnastics team in-
vades Ohio State Saturday, and
Coach Newt Loken promises to
have a few surprises in store for
For one, the Wolverines will
very likely be double-somersault-
ing all over the place. "The boys
will be coming off the rings, the
high bar, the parallel bars, and
almost anything else you care to
name, in double somersaults," Lo-
ken revealed at practice. "It shows
that they're strong enough on
their routines to have a little
something extra coming off the
Speaking of doubles, Loken also
said that tumblers Phil Bolton
and Mike Henderson have added
double backflips to their routines.
So far this season, Ohio State
hasn't compiled a remarkable rec-
ord, being defeated by Wisconsin
and Michigan State in the Big
Ten. Conversely, Michigan sports
a 2-0 conference mark, winning
over Iowa and Indiana.
In their encounter last year, the
Wolverines won easily, 6812-421.2
Tough on Tramp
Although the Buckeye team as
a whole isn't outstanding, there
are several bright spots Pore-

most among these is Dave Jarrett,
an excellent Trampolinist who
consistently scores in the 90's. Lo-
ken termed him a "real competi-
tor" and predicted that he'll give
the Wolverine Tramp trio, Gary
Erwin, Fred Sanders, and John
Hamilton, a vigorous workout.
Another veteran Buckeye is John
Veon, a tumbler, who will see if
he can counter that double back-
One man who won't be around
for Ohio State this year is last
year's captain Stu Greenberg.
Greenberg was the largest thorn
in the Wolverines' side, as he scor-
ed in three events for the Bucks.
... Of All Trades
If nothing else, Saturday's meet
should be a battle of top-notch all-
around performers, according to
Loken. Ohio State's Tom Leibrock
and Bob Webster are good, versa-
tile performers, and Loken con-
siders his own quartet of Gil La-
rose, Arno Lascari, Jim Hynds,
and Alex Frecska among the best.
The team's showing at the Flint
Open tournament on Jan. 26 bears
him out on this, as Larose, Las-
cari, and Hynds finished first,
third, and fourth, respectively in
the all-around. And none other
than former Michigan captain
Rich Montpetit was second.
Loken singled out senior Hynds
as one of his most dependable men.
"Jim is always in full control of
his entire body," he said. "He
knows what to do and when to
do it in order to get maximum
performance in the time allotted
for each event. And he's always
trying to improve."
