Win Crown
By One Run
By DAVE ANDREWS
Behind the one hit pitching of
Ed McConkey, Winchell House. of
West Quadrangle won the resi-
dence halls IM softball title yes-
terday by beating Gomberg, 4-3.
McConkey was in serious trouble
only in the first inning. He walk-
ed the first three men and then
after a force, at the plate yeilded
the only hit, a single to George
Quarderer, to give the Big fled a
short lived 2-0 lead.
Tied Game
Winchell tied the game in its
half of the second on a two -out
two run triple by second baseman
Ron Stellick.
The South Quad house took the
lead again in the third inning on
a run without the benefit of a.
hit, but Winchell came back in
the fourth to pick up its final two
runs.
Unearned Runs
Both runs came as a result of
Gomberg errors..The leadoff man
reached first when the Gomberg
first baseman booted a twisting
ground ball, and a beautiful bunt
put runners on first and third.
The first run scored when Gom-
berg's catcher dropped a throw
to the plate from third base, and
then Mike Gorman drove a two
out single to center to send home
the winning run.
Gary Joachim, who last week
was named South Quadrangle's
Athlete of the Year, took the loss.
He gave up only three hits, but
streaks of wildness kep him in
trouble throughout most of the
game.

Handily, 4-0
By TOM WEBER
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, behind
the three hit pitching of Ron
Gregg, beat Phi Sigma Kappa 4-0
yesterday to take the IM Social
Fraternity "A" Softball Champ-
ionship.
Thesoftball championship was
the fifth such championship for
SAE this year as they rolled to a
first place finish in the overall
IM Social Fraternity standings.
Don Campbell gave Gregg all
the runs he needed with a two run
homer in the first inning. Gerry
Levandowski had drawn a walk
to lead off the inning and scored
when Campbell followed with his
home run.
Final Runs
In the second SAE picked up
their final two runs off losing pit-
cher Dale Geiger with the benefit
of only one hit. Fred Roeser got
the first of his two hits to start
the rally. He than stole second,
moved to third on a wild pitch
and came home on Levandowski's
single. Levandowski then moved
to third on an error and scored
the final run of the game on
Geiger's second wild pitch of the
inning.
Geiger then settled down to
hold SAE scoreless the rest of the
way, but Gregg had all the runs
he needed. He was never in trouble
as he scattered three hits to pre-
serve the lead and receive credit
for the victory. Geiger yielded
seven hits in absorbing his first
loss of the season.

f For SAE it was their seven-
e teen IM Championship after fin-
s ishing third for the last two years.

By virtue of their 3-0 victory
over Wenly House yesterday in
the second place "A" softball
championships, Kelsey House
grabbed enough points to nose out
Gomberg for the residence halls
Intramural championship.
The two teams had staged a
two team dog fight throughout
the year with the team that won
or placed the highest in the cur-<
rent sport generally taking the
lead. However Kelsey scored high-1
er than the Big Reds in most of
the spring sports and led by a
slim, margain before yesterday's
game.9
Going into the final ball game
of the year the small South Quad
house needed a victory to clinchj
the title. They got it, and finished1
with a total of 1884 points to 18651
for second place Gomberg.
Kelsey's championship was the
first for the house in its seven,
year history, and ironically enough'
the seperate championships won;
this year were also the first in
the house's history.
They copped five team titles
over the course of the year and
placed second or third in num-
erous other events as they took
valuable points in each of the 23
sports offered.
Leading Kelsey to the title were
Terry Sokey and Art Ryall, who
were named House Athletes of the
year, and Bruce Baldwin.
Baldwin was cited along with
Gomberg's Gary Joachimas South-
Quadrangle's Athletes of the
Year. He also was named on the
All IM football and basketball
teams. Ryall was also named on
All IM football team.

By BILL PHELPS
The man selected to lead what
should be the best Michigan track-
team ever is quite fitingly one of
the best athletes to ever wear the
Maize and Blue-Tom Robinson.
At their annual banquet in the
Union last night, his teammates
selected Robinson to be their
spokesman for the season. They
also chose sophomore Ergas Leps
as the Most Improved Varsity
member, and Steve Overton as
this year's Outstanding Freshman.
Won Six Titles
Robinson is the sprinter who
won the British Empire Games
220 title for the Bahamas in 1958
and has since won six individual
Big Ten championships for the
Michigan team. He is the man to
whom U.S. Olympic coach Laur-
ence Snyder of Ohio State con-
cedes the only chance for a non-
American to win any of the Olym-
pic sprint events at Rome this
summer.
The distinction belonging to
Leps was earned largely by his
improvement in the half-mile and
quarter. This spring in relay com-
petition, he ran a two-lap leg in
just under 1:50 - considerably
better athan his 1:54.6 best time
until then.
Working Hard
As the 'potential answer to
coach Canham's lack of pole
vaulters, Overton has been work-
ing hard and has recently cleared
13 feet.
Ex-captain Earle Deardorff and
his graduating classmates Dick

By DAVE ANDREWS
Dick Syring, junior catcher from
Bay City, was named Captain of
Michigan's baseball team for th
1961 season by a vote of this year'
team taken yesterday.
He succeeds first baseman Bil
Roman who led this year's edition
to an even 7-7 mark in the Big
Ten and an overall 19-12 record.
Hit Well
Syring, or just "Sy" as he i~
called by his friends, hit over o
close to the coveted .300 mark foi
most of the year, but a late seasor
slump caused his final average tc
drop to .250.
Following his election to th
post yesterday afternoon, Syrin
said, "I hope I can do as finef
job as Roman did, he has beenf
fine leader."
The 6'0", 190 pounder als
doubles in football in the fall. H
missed last season because of a
operation for a shoulder separa
tion suffered on the opening da
of fall practice, but is expected t
be a prime contender for a start
ing berth on this fall's team atx
guard position.
He graduated from Bay Cit
Central in 1957 where he again
starred in baseball and football.
- Played Center
Since coming to Michigan h
starred as a center on the 195
team and has been the regula
catcher for Coach Don Lund fo
the past two years.
He is a general science majo
in the School of Education and i
