CHAMPIONSHIPS BEGIN TODAY

Tumblers set for

NCAA final

By SCOTT LEWIS
The M i c h i g a n gymnastics
team, fresh from a resounding
triumph in the Big Ten cham-
pionships, has its work cut out
for it, travelling to Terra Haute,
Ind., to compete in the NCAA
championships.
The Wolverines will send their
entire team to vie for the cn-im-
, pionship, led by five first place
finishers in the Big Ten's.
PACED by Harley Danner,
the first freshman to win the
SBig Ten all-around title, and!
four other first place finishers:
Chuck Stillerman in the floor
exercise, Richard Bigras in
vaulting, Pierre Leclerc -n the
parallel bars, and Bob Darden
on the high bar, Michigan will
attempt to overcome the ikes
of Indiana State and LSU, wnom
they lost to in dual meets this
year.
Michigan's qualifying score,
which put them in the cham-
pionships, is sixth out of eight
entrants in the tournament.
"We like to be rated d )xn theI
line," an optimistic Michigan
Coach Newt Loken counters.
"We have the momentum going
and it looks like this will be Pn
exciting chamiponship. The en-

THE SQUAD with the highest!
qualifying score is LSU. The
Tigers, who won all 12 of their!
dual meets this year, have 12{
gymnasts entered in the indi-
vidual chamiponships, and all
of them have a good chance of
winning in t h e i r respea:ive
specialties.
They are led by all-arounder
Mike Carter. Carter finished
sixth in the all-around last year,
and fourth the year aetore. This
season, he has hit a high mark
of 55.3, and he has averaged
over nine points for every event
but the pommel horse.
THE TIGERS also have other
returnees who placed high in
l a s t y e a r's championships.
Chuck David placed eighth inI
vaulting, and Donnie Clifford
finished fourth on the prallel
bars.
Other promising Tigers in-
clude Tony Jaeger in the floor
exercise, Blaine Dahl on the
pommel horse, Todd Kuoni on
the rings (who has =averaged
9.44 this year), and Steve Bon-

Southern Illinois, who finisned
close behind Indiana State in the

by the loss of their number one
