Tumbling Champ
Pond lost Big Ten and NCAA
tumbling champ, Al Barasch, due
to mid-year graduation, but
should not be in too much trouble
for this event. Sophomore Hal
Holmes has won the national AAU
tumbling championships twice, and
Pond calls him "the world's finest
The Illini also will be bolstered
by the transfer of five gymnasts
from Navy Pier (University of Il-'
linois at Chicago), and two other

sophomores who comprise the1
largest squad Pond has ever had.-
The mlini power was demo~n-
strated by their victory over the
alumni, 68-54, in an annual pre-
season encounter. The alumni in-

Southern Illinois had proved it-
self a leading gymnastics power
with a victory in the Midwest

provides an interesting compar1-
son between Illinois, Michigan ad

the meet, but it would be foolish
to make predictions on this basis
'M' Sophomores'
The Illini weren't at full strength
for the meet, and Michigan en-'
tered a team composed of sopho-"
mores, who hadn't yet been ex-'

Posed to Intercollegiate competi-
Nevertheless, top performances
'ill be necessary if Michigan can
even hope to beat either of the
Illinois schools.
Coach Loken is encouraged by
the strong showing of his team in
its two dual meets to date against
Navy Pier and Wisconsin, and
hopes to have the team in top
condition, except for minor win-
ter colds, for the meet tomorrow
against Illinois.
Sophomore Performances
Tecent line performances by
sophomores Jim Hynds, Gil La-

Against Wisconsin also are an in-

Montpetit's 445.5 points and four
first places in the five events in

Championship standards, and Os-

are fast-approaching the form
which earned him 1980 NCAA, Big
Ten, and AAU second-places.

or not the team can be "up" for
two such difficult meets in such a

ANN A tioa DETROrr

If a gymnastics team were to
finish first, second, and third in
all seven events in a dual meet,
the final score of the meet would
be §1-21.
Last Saturday at Madison, Wis-
consin managed one third place to.
deprive Michigan's gymnasts of a
'whitewashing,' as the Wolverines
were "held" to a 90-22 victory.
Though the Badgers are not a
strong team, the fine perform-
ances of the Wolverines were a
marked improvement over the
team's efforts in their opening
victory against Navy Pier January
The victory indicated that the
gymnasts will be in top form for
the big meet of the season against
Illinois in the I-M Building at
4 p.m. tomorrow.
Montpetit Stars
Leading the way for the Wol-
verines against Wisconsin, was
captain Richard Montpetit with
four firsts and a second in the
five events in which he competed
and all-around honors with 445.5
Jim Brown, Tom Osterland, and
sophomore Lew Fenner provided
the other Wolverine victories,
in tumbling, rebound tumbling
(trampoline),, and the'side horse,
Brown's and Osterland's victor-
ies were expected since each is
among. the strongest in the Big
Ten in his event, but Fenner's
performance was particularly en-
couraging. A strong 87 points out
of a possible 100 enabled him to
beat out Montpetit for top hon-
ors on the side horse.
Strong Performances
Osterland and sophomore Barry
Spicer gave Coach Newt Loken
further cause for satisfaction with
strong performances in tumbling
and free exercise, respectively.
Osterland, noted for his tram-
polining, recently has shown
marked improvement in tumbling
and finished a strong second to
Brown. Spicer lost to Montpetit
by a mere half point in free exer-
cise and his continued improve-
ment as well as Osterland's should
provide the Wolverines with ex-
