Gymnasts eye progress

By DIANE SILVER
When a gymnast performs an out-
standing routine, it is usually the grace
and ease with which difficult moves are
maneuvered that make the performan-
ce impressive. An experienced tumbler
makes complicated moves look easy
enough for even a beginner to produce.
But excellence in gymnastics takes
lots of hard work and many hours of
training. The Michigan men's gym-
nastics team can attest to that. It's the
gradual improvement that occurs
during weeks and weeks of training that
produces a top rate gymnast.
"Our long-range training program
focuses on gradual improvement week
by week," explained Coach Newt
Loken. "We're not placing everything
on immediate results."
Each meet the gymnasts participate
in gives them the chance to see how
" they are progressing as individuals and
as a team, compared to gymnasts from
other schools. Strengths and
weaknesses become more apparent in a
competitive situation where mental as
well as physical preparation becomes
so important.
This weekend, four Michigan tum-
blers will test their skills at the Ball
Wings

DETROIT (AP)-Two veteran
members of the Detroit Red Wings,
captain Dennis Hextall and defen-
seman Terry Haper, apparently have
played their last game for the National
Hockey League club, Ted Lindsay,
Wings' general manager said yester-
day.
Harper was shipped out to Detroit's
Central Hockey league farm club to
learn about coaching, and Hextall's on
the trading block, Lindsay told mem-
bers of a Red Wing booster group, the
sRight Wing For'em Club.
NEITHER PLAYER accompanied
the team o this week's West Coast
road trip.
At Kansas City, Harper, 39, will play,
work with young players and prepare
for coaching duties with the Red Wings,
Lindsay said.
Kansas City defenseman John Taft
and center Bjorne Skaare were called
up to join Detroit on Monday.
The Wings are in the midst of a
mediocre 6-10-5 season,in third place in
the NHL's Wales Conference.
Hextall, 35, was named captain of the
Red Wings late last season. He had
been captain of the Minnesota North
Stars as well as their leading scorer for
three straight seasons before coming to
Detroit.
HEXTALL BROKE into the NHL in
the 1967-68 season with the New York
Rangers. After several moves between
NHL teams and teams in the American
Hockey League, Hextall wound up with
Minnesota in 1971.
He was traded by Minnesota to
Detroit in 1976. In the 1976-77 season,
Hextall had 14 goals and 32 assists. Last
season, he had 16 goals and 33 assists.

State Classic in Muncie, Indiana. This
meet is unique in that only four all-
arounders, instead of the usual 12 all-
arounders and specialists, will be com-
peting from each of the 18 schools en,;
tered.
"Our long range train-
ing program focuses on
gradual improvement
week by week. We're not
placing ererything ont
immediate results."
-Coach Loken
Al Berger, Nigel Rothwell, Bruce
Schuchard and Chris Van Mierlo will
compete in all six events this weekends
to constitute the Michigan all-around
squad. A knee injury, suffered in the
Windy City Invitational two weeks ago,
has impaired all-arounder Marshall
Garfield's progress.
"Garfield's injury really hurts the
all-areund squad," said Loken. "He's a

very talented gymnast and he started
off this season really well."
The extent of Garfield's injury is
unknown at this time, and is being kept
under observation. The rest of the
Wolverines are all healthy, an impor-
tant factor in achieving the results they
are striving for. .
All the members of the all-around
squad are veterans from last year ex-
cept for freshman Al Berger. "He's
shown a lot of improvement the last
couple of weeks," commented Loken.
"He has a fine background in gym-
nastics."
The compulsory and optional scores
will be combined to determine the top
three performers in each event. These
tumblers will then progress on to the
finals where the top six individuals
receive awards.
The finals also include the top eight
all-around performers. Team awards
will be given to the top six teams.
The compulsory competition begins
Friday at 7 p.m. Optionals follow on
Saturday at 11 a.m., and the com-
petition will wrap up at 8 p.m. with the
finals.

By The Associated Press
Quarterbacks Rick Leach of
Michigan and Chuck Fusina of Penn
State were elected to the American
Football Coaches Association All-
America team in the first tie vote in
10 years.
"The voting was simply too close
to call," said AFCA president Car-
men Cozza of Yale. "Both Leach and
Fusina are great players and great
leaders. They both clearly are All-
Americans."
THE DUAL selection all but over-
shadowed the selection of the
nation's three premier running
backs: Heisman Trophy winner
Billy Sims of Oklahoma, Charles
White of Southern California and
Charles Alexander of LSU, the only
offensive player to repeat as an All-
American.
Rounding out the offensive team

are center Jim Ritcher of North
Carolina State, guards Pat Howell of
Southern California and Greg
Roberts of Oklahoma, tackles
Kelvin Clark of Nebraska and Keith
Dorney of Penn State, tight end
Kellen Winslow of Missouri and split
end Gordon Jones of Pittsburgh.
LINEBACKER Jerry Robinson of
UCLA, the leading defensive vote-
getter, was the only repeater on the
coaches' defensive team.
Also chosen were linebackers Bob
Golio of Notre Dame and Tom
Cousineau of Ohio State, a defensive
backfield of Henry Williams of San
Diego State, Jeff Nixon of Richmond
and Johnny Johnson of Texas, and a
defensive line of Don Smith of
Miami, Fla., Dan Hampton of
Arkansas, Mike Bell of Colorado
State, Bruce Clark of Penn State and
Al Harris of Arizona State.
