Teoledo in
By JON CHAVEZ
"We wrestled like I would expect, not too
enthusiastic," commented Michigan wrestling
coach Bill Johannesen after yesterday's meet
with the Toledo Rockets.
The Rockets were lucky the Wolverines
weren't fired up or the margin might have
been much more than the final 32-8 score.
The meet, intended as a tuneup for next
week's Big Ten Championships, did not fea-
ture' Michigan's usual lineup and many
thought the Rockets would stay close.
"This meet is just to keep their competitive
edge up," explained Johannesen, who let many
wrestlers go at higher weights to keep them
from cutting pounds and weakening themselves.
But if the meet should have been close, it
wasn't. Great individual efforts from seniors
Dave Curby and Jim Brown dashed whatever
hopes Toledo may have had. In their final home
appearances, both grapplers registered pins,
with Curby's staking the Maize and Blue to an
insurmountable 26-8 lead.
Yesterday also marked the final home ap-
pearance for Wolverines Dan Brink and John
King, who drew 1-1 and won 7-5 respectively.
Key grapplers Bill Schuck at 142 and Brad
McCrory at 134, both out with the flu, will
also graduate.
At the onset, Toledo, coached by Harry
Bowles, took an early lead when the Rocket's
superb 118 pounder, Myron Shapiro, decisioned
Michigan's Todd Schneider, 7-3.
Then Brown, the senior from Akron, Ohio,
took charge of Mark McGuire and pinned him
at 3:47 of their 126-lb. match.
"I'm glad to see Brown going for those falls,"
assured a happy Johannesen.
'M' thn clcii

ien
lasi

t

From that point on, it was all Maize and
Blue. The best Toledo could manage was a
draw at 167 and a win at 142, where Michi-
gan's Rich Valley, subbing for Schuck, lost to
Brad Smith, 7-4.
For Curby, the team captain and defending
Big Ten champ at 190 pounds, the pin couldn't
have come at a better time. It was his first
fall of the season and, as Johannesen put it
aptly, "that's what Curby needs, a good solida
ego builder."
HeavyweightwMitchMarsicano's pin probably
didn't hurt the big Wolverine's ego either. After
a disappointing performance last week against
Wisconsin, the victory may put him back on{
the winning track in time for the champion-
shins at Ohio State...
Johannesen, expressing some optimism re-t
garding the Feb. 28-Mar. 1 affair, stated flatly,T
"I think we have a good chance of winning if
Iowa stumbles somewhere."
In an effort to score more points, Johanne-
sen is exnected to move Dan Brink down to 1581
noinds and Mark Johnson to 167 for the Bigf
Ten meet.c

With the NCAA finals three
weeks away, the Michigan track
team's trip to the Central Col-
legiate Championships at Kala-
mazoo today looms as one of
its most important dates of the
season.
Most of the tracksters are in
their best shape of the season,'
and several Wolverine stars are
very close to meet perform-
ances that would qualify them
for the NCAA meet at Cobo
Hall March 14-15.
THE COMPETITION will be
top-notch, which should aid the
eight Wolverines that are close
to NCAA-class times.

Two of the Midwest's top
track powers, Southern Illinois
and Eastern Michigan, will be
in Kalamazoo along with host
Western Michigan, Penn State,
Kent State, Bowling Green,
Toledo and others.
The only individual Wolverine
that has officially qualified thus
far is speedster Dave Williams,
who is assured of a spot in the
440 and 600 yard runs. The
Michigan mile relay team also
has clinched a spot, therefore
in addition to Williams, Jeff
McLeod, Dave Furst and Doug
Hennigar will be at Cobo.
There is a possibility that
freshman James Grace may
supplant Furst or Hennigar on

the unit sometime before the'
meet.

far is 48'3", and he'll have to
improve another 21 inches in

Faced with this win-or-fade
proposition, Michigan can ill
afford to be torpedoed this
weekend in either Evanston or
Madison.
Saturday, the cagers con-
front the Wildcats, who would
be tied with Wisconsin for last
place had they not emerged
as fourteen-point victors over

of the scoring when the Wild-
cats manage to bring the ball
to the other team's end of the
court.
Center James Wallace has
not received rave reviews
thus far and Northwestern has
tried a variety of bodies at
the second forward and guard
spots without great success.
