TUMBLERS CAPTURE TWO FIRSTS

Blue gymnasts set personal bests

By DIANE SILVER
Although injuries set back the
progress of several Michigan gymnasts
at the Big Ten Invitational at Crisler
Arena last weekend, three Wolverines
set personal record high scores. Only
individual scores were kept at the meet
featuring gymnasts from Michigan
State, Indiana, Ohio State, Eastern
Michigan, and Michigan.
Michigan's Jim Varilek scored a 9.45
in the floor exercise finals to capture
first place honors in the event. That
performance marked only the fourth
time Varilek had ever done his new
routine.
"It wasn't a major overhaul," said
Varilek about his new routine. "I just

substituted a few things and took a few
things out."
But those minor changes seemed to
be exactly what Varilek needed to boost
his score. His previous routine con-
tained one more round-off than allowed,
so two-tenths of a point was
automatically taken off.
"I'mreally happy with my new
routine," said Varilek. "I've never
scored that high in my life. My highest
score before today was a 9.25."
Darrel Yee also scored a record high
with a 9.35 in the ring finals to capture
first place. In breaking his previous
record of 9.0 Yee called it "a really
sound performance."
Bob Creek's high bar performance
marked the third personal record
broken by a Michigan tumbler last
Sunday.Creek scored a 9.55 in the
finals, just missing first place by 25-
thousandths of a point.
"The closest I ever got to' that was
when I scored a 9.5 as a freshman, and
that was five years ago," said Creek. "I
feel really good about it."

Gordon Higman was the only other
Michigan gymnast to place in the top
three in the finals. He captured third
place on the parallel bars.

Injuries! kept some of the other
Michigan gymnasts from competing up
to par. All-arounder Chris Van Mierlo
injured his shoulder during his ring
routine in the optional competition.
Van Mierlo was discouraged that he
was not able to compete in the finals,
but he hoped to recover in time for the
upcoming meet this weekend.
"It's a little sore," said Van Mierlo
about his shoulder. "I'll just take a few
days to work it out."
All-arounder Nigel Rothwell's per-
formance was also limited as he was
competing with an injured thumb.
Despite his injury, Rothwell made it to
the finals, where the top eight in each
event after compulsories and optionals
competed, in floor exercise and vault.
This Sunday the men's and women's
gymnastics teams will host Michigan
State at Crisler Arena. The competition
will start at 2 p.m.

RESIDENT STAFF JOB OPENINGS FOR 1979-80

By United Press International
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Notre Dame is
on the verge of becoming what Coach
Digger Phelps says the Fighting Irish
should have accomplished two weeks
ago - the No. 1 team in the nation.
The Irish were set for the honor with
a 65-60 win at Marquette Saturday
night, Notre Dame's second win ever at
Milwaukee.
Notre Dame also was considered a
solid choice for the No. 1 spot after
previously top-ranked Michigan State
lost twice and third-ranked Illinois,
which had defeated the Spartans last
Thursday, lost at home to Ohio State.
It won't be the first time for a Phelps'
team to reach the top spot, but he is
IBig 10 StandingsI

hoping his stay at No. 1 will be longer
than the last time.
"We managed to make it up the year
(1973-74) we ended UCLA's 88-game
winning streak," Phelps said. "We
lasted all of one week."
The end to Notre Dame's first place
national ranking came one week later
when the Bruins avenged the loss to the
Irish.
Notre Dame actually had an ex-
cellent chance to be No. 1 earlier this
month after top-ranked Duke was upset
twice in the same week by Ohio State
and St. John's. But the Irish fell victim
to the University of Kentucky at
Louisville, and they remained No. 2 in
the list.
"We should have made it then, but
making it to the top anytime in a given
season is a great boost for our team and
our program," Phelps said.
"Don't let anyone fool you. Being No.
1 in the polls is an important thing, and
it means a lot to us."
Phelps said the top spot in the polls is
"excellent mental preparation" for the
NCAA playoffs in March, a tournament

in which Notre Dame may have its best
shot ever for the championship.
"If you're No. 1, the teams are all
going to be shooting for you, playing
their best and all," Phelps said. "It's
like a tournament atmosphere most of
the time, and it's going to be good for
our team to be facing this."
Notre Dame finished fourth a year
ago in the NCAA tournament after
making it to the final four for the first
time.
The Irish are now 8-1, heading into a
series of home games that beings
tonight with Lafayette.
"It's going to be good to get home af-
ter three tough road games," said
Phelps, whose team defeated Davidson,
Villanova and Marquette away from
home during the past 10 days. "But
we've got a long way to go, and that San
Francisco game on Thursday at home
is going to be rough."
Notre Dame eased past Marquette
thanks to a career high 21 points from
sophomore Tracy Jackson. Jackson
scored 12 of his points in the final 12
minutes.
"We go with a lot of people," Phelps
said, "and that's also going to help us
come tournament time."

When last we left the Michigan
basketball team, it had just absorbed
its third consecutive conference loss of
the season, was plagued with nagging
injuries, and was snowed-in in a hotel in
Madison, Wisconsin.
Well, the Wolverines finally escaped
the jaws of the midwest blizzard, but
other problems continue to haunt the
club.
SOPHOMORE guard-forward John-
ny Johnson twisted his knee while
driving in on a breakaway layup again-
st Wisconsin and had to be assisted
from the court. He did not play for the
rest of the game and left the Wisconsin
Fieldhouse on crushes.
Meanwhile, starting guard Marty
Bodnar reports that he has fully

recovered from a bruised right thigh
incurred when Purdue forward Drake
Morris decked him at Mackey Arena.
Forward Mike McGee, Michigan's
leading scorer, is still slightly ham-
pered by a hip pointer, also suffered in
the Purdue defeat.
A REPORT is also due today regar-
ding freshman guard Keith Smith's
eligibility. Smith was left behind last
week when the team hit the road
because a grade had not been turned in
by one of his teachers, and the coaching
staff didn't want to risk playing an
ineligible player.
Smith then turned in a paper, com-
pleting his course work, and is
scheduled to appear before a board
today to determine his eligibility. The 6-
0 speedster is eligible to play with his
current grades under NCAA standards
and is practicing with the team, but
does not meet Michigan standards.
When asked if Smith's starting guard
spot was waiting for him when he
comes back, Orr said he would wait un-
til tomorrow to decide that.
