specialTO Th@Datly
PRINCETON - While ,Iowa
stormed to the third highest
team score in the history of the
NCAA Wrestling Championships
here last night, Michigan's two
surviving wrestlers suffered one
of the most disappointingdays
any Michigan team has had at
this event.
Dan Brink, emotionally ex-
hausted from his super effort
Friday night which made him
an All-American, was no match
for the two opponents he faced
today. He lost two superior de-
cisions by a combined score of
33-2 and wound up placing sixth
in the tournament.
But still, his performance was
alot more than people expected.
THE MAJOR blow was Jim
Brown's failure to win the na-
tional championships at 118
pounds, where he's been a lead-
ng contender throughout his
four year career. This time, it
was sophomore Shawn Garel
who wrote a disappointing fin-
ish to an excellent Brown sea-
son, completely dominating his
Wolverine foe in a 7-2' triumph.
"I didn't wrestle a good
match, period," Brown said
matter-of-factly after his loss.
"When I went out I saw it.
There was no way I could lose,"
Brown said, "I was mentally;
prepared but physically slug-

gish. I could get only one move
at a time.
"Shawn deserved it-he went
out and whipped me," Brown
said, "I wanted it badly. Win-
ning a national champio:ship
was something I always wanted
to do and it was something I
always thought I would do
Brown was the aggressor
through the first minute and a
half of the match, penetrating
well and grabbing Garel's legs
several times. But Brown never
was seriously close to scoring
a takedown.
Garel's first offensive move
was a beauty - a double leg
takedown which flipped Brown
to the mat with only 12 seconds
to go in the first period.
BROWN THEN out wresled
Garel through the first two
minutes of the second period
escaping at the 31 second mark,
and almost taking Garel down
on a single with two minutes
But just 15 seconds after that
takedown attempt failed, Brown
whiffed on a shot as Garel
quickly pounced upon him for
a quick two points placed Brown
deep in the hole 4-1. The third
period was no contest. Garel
scored on an escape, another
takedown and riding time to

TI1 dZrc

post a surprising but easy 8-3
Despite their lackluster, Mich-
igan's wrestlers still placed tied
for twelfth at 25% points with
Pac = Eight champion Oregon.
Considering that the Wolverities
were rated sixteenth going in,
that's pretty good.
Even more shocking than
Brown's loss was the result of
the match immediately follow-
ing in which two time NCAA
chamnion P a t Milkovich of
Michigan State siiccumbed in
overtime to an insoired perform-
ance by John Fritz. Fritz com-
pletely dominated Milkovich in
overtime to win the title in the
tournament's tonahest weight
class, one in which the highly
regarded freshman Jim Carr of
Kentucky (seeded second) did
not even place.
Two Big Ten wrestlers T-ck
Reinwand of Wisconsin and Joe
Corso of Purdue struck a blow
for the Snorts Illustrated jinx.
nroving that Carr who has all
the Dhvsical and mental attri-
butes needd to win, still needs
to learn from basic wrestling
tehniaues before he will start
winning the national champion-
shins everyone nredicted.
JIM BENNETT of Yale be-
came the first Ivy League wres-
tler in 15 years to win a na-
tional wrestling title when he

beat Andre Allen of North-
western 5-3.
"It's a team effort," said
Iowa coach Jerry Kurdelmeier
while surveying the wreckage of
the remainder of the field. "A
lot of people do a lot of things
to help a team perform like
this," he added.
Nine of Kurdelmeier's ten
starters return next year.

Special To The Daily
DETROIT-Displaying great strength in the field events, the
University of Texas-El Paso ran away from 127 other schools to
win the NCAA indoor track and field championship.
A record crowd of 10,191 at Detroit's Cobo Arena watched
UTEP pile up 36 points for their second consecutive indoor title.
Kansas finished second with 17 points, Villanova took third
with 15 points and Eastern Michigan placed fourth with 14 points.
Host Michigan scored only one team point, a fifth by
freshman three-miler Mike McGuire. McGuire trailed the
entire pack but overcame several contenders on the final lap.
The Miners from El-Paso won four of the six field events:
the triple jump, high jump, shot put and 35-1b. weight throw.
UTEP also scored points with a second in the mile and a fourth
