Grapplers pin 4th-ranked Lehigh

Despite dropping the first four
matches, and falling behind 15-0, the
Michigan wrestlers came back to win a
thrilling 22-18 decision against fourth-
ranked Lehigh last night in Crisler
Going into the final match, Michigan
was down by the score of 18-16 and
needed a win from their heavyweight
Steve Bennett in order to win the meet.
Bennett responded by pinning Jim
Karapelou of Lehigh at the 1:04 mark of
the first period.
"Steve wrestles real smart and has
good mat sense. He wrestles real well
against light heavyweights (which
Karapelou was)," stated Michigan
coach Dale Bahr.
"THE MEET was a joy to coach. It
was my first win (while at Michigan)
against a major school," added Bahr.
"I was most impressed with the hustle
of the kids. Even the kids that lost
didn't quit."
Lehigh was without the services of

throat. "Our 167 and 177 pounders
weren't ready to wrestle.. . but you got
to go with the best you got," said Lehigh
coach Thad Turner.
"We figured we had to win five of the
first six matches. We knew they
(Michigan) would be tough in the
heavier weights."
Although winning the first four mat-
ches, Lehigh was unable to capture five
of the first six, losing the fifth and sixth
matches of the night.
IN THE FIFTH match, Michigan's
Lou Joseph scored a 5-1 decision again-
st Lehigh's Greg Cunningham to cut
Lehigh's team lead to 15-3. The match
was closer than the score indicated.
In the first period, Joseph scored a
takedown to go ahead 2-0. Both
wrestlers scored escapes making the
score 3-1 in the third period. With seven
seconds remaining, and both wrestlers
standing, Cunningham shot in for a
takedown but Joseph countered and
both wrestlers went out of bounds.
Had Cunningham got the takedown,
he would had won the match 4-3 (as a
result of riding time), and given Lehigh
an 18-0 lead. A wrestler is awarded one
point for riding time if the time that he
has controlled his opponent is a minute
or more than the time his opponent has
controlled him.

In the 158 pound class, Michigan's
Nemir Nadhir scored an exciting 11-8
decision over Bill Schneck.
In that match, Nadhir was behind 3-0
but took Schneck down on his back with
a smooth fireman's carry, scoring five
points on the move. Nadhir scored six
more points in the third period, with
twotakedowns and two escapes, to en-
sure the victory.
Really the only question in the 167
pound match was whether Michigan's
two-time NCAA champ Mark Churella
would pin Engineer Tom Hensler.
Churella did score a pin, with only one
second left in the period, to make the
team score 15-12 in favor of Lehigh.

for the first time 16-15.
Michigan's Steve Fraser, fifth in the
NCAA's last year, met Mike Brown
(presently ranked number one in the
country) in the 190 pound match.
Fraser wrestled tough through the
match but dropped a 8-4 decision to
Brown, making the score 18-16 in favor
of Lehigh.
That set the stage for Bennett's
heroics. Bennett's pin sent a good num-
ber of Lehigh fans home unhappy and
set the Michigan wrestlers literally'
jumping for joy.
The win raises the Wolverines'
overall record to 5-1, and lowered

Tumblers ready to roll
By this Sunday - more than 800 miles and two meets later - Coach
Scott Ponto and his Michigan women gymnasts should know where they
stand in relation to the national tumbling powers.
After a five-week layoff during which Ponto revamped and revised most
of the tumblers' routines, the youthful squad takes to the road this weekend
for a triangular meet with Louisiana State and Chicago Circle in the Windy
City tomorrow night, and a quadrangular event with Wisconsin, Wisconsin-
Oshkosh, and the same Chicago Circle team Saturday in Madison.
The Wolverines will have more to contend with than just the interstate
highways. LSU has used its outstanding depth to compensate for the pre-
season loss of ace performer Jean Beadle, one of the nation's top twenty all-
around gymnasts.
In spite of the feverish schedule and a minor outbreak of bumps and
bruises among the eight-member squad, Ponto sees the meets as an
opportunity to showtase Michigan's improvement and eliminate some
glaring errors left over from the December contests.
"We were a bit unprepared for the meets last month, especially the Penn
State Invitational," remarked Ponto. "We should have finished second'
instead of fourth (of six teams). Sure, we'll still make some of the same
mistakes, but we're much better prepared this time."
The tumblers should have greater room for error at Madison, where
slow-starting Wisconsin and Wisconsin-Oshkosh along with Chicago Circle
provide the opposition. "We should beat the two Wisconsin teams," said
Ponto. "They haven't scored as well as us so far("'
The Wolverines can gauge their improvement against Chicago Circle,
which was earlier ranked 19th in the country. "They scored about as well as
us in their first meet," said Ponto, "so I think we'll be evenly matched."
The first-year mentor isn't setting his sights on second place, however.
"We have a chance to win the meet. We should beat Wisconsin and Oshkosh,
too. But if we beat LSU, we could conceivably be in the top twenty."
The gymnasts have only to go to Crisler Arena for meets next week.
They make their home debut against Central and Western Michigan next
Thursday night and hook up with 11th-ranked Michigan State a week from
Sunday at Crisler.
Buckeye Bruce?
Iowa State University Cocah Earle Bruce appears to be the man Ohio
State has settled on to replace Woody Hayes, the Buckeyes' fired football
"He's got the inside track right now," Iowa State Athletic Director Lou
McCullough said of Bruce. "I'm afraid I've lost him." -
After a session with Hugh Hindman, the Buckeyes' athletic director in
San Francisco, Bruce would only say, "I guess I'll hear from them when
they get through with interviews one way or another."
Hindman insists that no choice will be made until Ohio State's delegation
returns to Columbus early Thursday from the National Collegiate Athletic
Association convention in San Francisco. -AP
More plaudits for Baker
Defensive end Al Baker of the Detroit Lions, a second-round draft choice
who blossomed instantly into an All-Pro choice, was named Defensive
Rookie of the Year by The Associated Press Wednesday.
Baker was a landslide choice in balloting by a nationwide panel of
football writers and broadcasters, receiving 61 of 84 votes cast. Ross
Browner of the Cincinnati Bengals had 16.
The Lions drafted Baker out of Colorado State and installed him at right
end in the first preseason game. Ile was a permanent fixture all season long
and led the NFL with 23 quarterback sacks.
"He is the best rookie pass rusher I have ever seen come into this
league," said Floyd Peters, the Lions' defensive line coach. AP
