Wrestlers rout State
for 1lth straight win






A psyched-up Michigan wrestling
squad erased all doubts surround-
ing the level of its powers by de-
throning perennial Big Ten cham-
pion Michigan State last night by
an overwhelming 27-6 tally.
The steamroller otherwise known
as the "Michigan Mat Machine"
copped eight of the evening's ten
bouts in recording its first grap-
pling success over the sputtering
Spartans since 1967.
"We were super psyched-up to-
night," beamed a jubilant Rick
Bay. "It was just like the Penn
State meet: two evenly balanced
teams. But we were ready, got the
momentum going early and r!ed."
And roll they did. Michigan's
lone losses came in two expected
divisions. Brad McCrory and
Steve Bissell, two freshmen
wrestling their first varsity com-
petition in place of injured regu-
lars, performed capably but
weren't quite up to the caliber of
their opponents. Everyone else
Coach Bay singled out Jeff Guy-
ton and Roger Ritzman for parti-
cular praise. "When we figured out
the m a t c h u p s beforehand, we
couldn't be sure of victories at
134 and 167. Jeff had a tough guy
in Calendar,- and Roger certainly
didn't have an easy man either."
The 134-pound Guyton decisioned
Conrad Calendar 4-1 on the
strength of a takedown, an escape
and riding time. Calendar, a for-
mer Midlands and Ohio champion,
couldn't keep up with Michigan's
scrappy freshman.
Ritzman's victory was an espe-
cially satisfying one for the Detroit
senior. After losing two vtugh
matches against Minnesota and
Iowa a week ago, the 167-pounder
thought he owed something to the
"Roger told me before the match
that he was going to go out and
give me eight full minutes to-
night," related Bay. "He was a
little down after last week and
wanted to make it up."
With the match score tied 3-3
and time running out in the third

tory over Jeff Zindel, third place
fin isher in the Big Ten a year
ago. His triumnh upped the dual-
meet count to 18-3 and eliminated
any lingering thoughts of a Spar- t}: >
tan comeback.
Mitch Mendrygal finished u, his.

sical 5-2 decision over a former'
New York State champ niamed ;r ~ =
Rick Greene. The Wolverines' cap-
tainmi responded to the encourage-
ment of his teammates and fans
by punishing his Spartan foe.
Jerry Hubbard established a new3

Five pool records set;
Indiana drowns Blue
Come Monday morning, one of the Michigan swim man-
agers will climb up a ladder, erase five pool records from the
big record board and replace them with Indiana names. These
five new clockings resulted from yesterday's 73-50 win over
Michigan before a near-capacity crowd at Matt Mann Pool.
Olympians Mike Stamm and John Kinsella each set a
pair of new pool standards while teammates Pat O'Conner,
Gary Hall, and Tom Hickcox notched oneapiece. Wolverine
}Stu Isaac lowered his own 200-yard breaststroke mark for the
only Michigan record.
Even though several of the races were excitingly close,
overall, the times were not outstanding. "Some of our times
were good," said victorious Hoosier mentor "Doc" Counsilman.
"But some were bad. Most were indifferent."
The best performances for the Wolverines came from the
vastly improving divers, garnering 1-2 in both springboard
events. Joe Crawford, by far Michigan's most consistent diver,
enhanced his chances to become a Big Ten champion by
ca nturing first nlace in tbnth

events. Dick Quint placed sec-
ond 'in the low board, while
Steve Schenthal was runner-
up in the three-meter' event.
The big test for the tower
brigade will come next week
when Ohio State, perenially
the conference diving power,!
comes to town.
The meet's most exciting race
was the match-up everyone waited
for: Michigan's.Tom Szuba versus
Hall, the national champion in the
400-yard individual medley. With
the crowd of 2,200 on its feet,
Szuba took an early lead on the
butterfly leg of the medley, which
is Hall's best stroke. But Hall
gained the upper hand in the back-
stroke and kept even throughout
the- breaststroke. Goinghinto the
freestyle, Szuba lost his early
energy and was beaten on his
turns. Hall finished with a time of
4:05.6, a new pool record, to
Szuba's 4:07.4.
The 200-yard breaststroke saw
IU's Brock Ladewig attempt to
burn out Isaac early in the race.
Ladewig's 100-yard split was a
blazing 1:01.6 and it gave him a
half-second lead over the Big Ten
champion. But it was Ladewig, not
Isaac who was too pooped to par-
ticipateas Isaac won with a time
of 2:11.1.
The meet opened differently
from the norm with the 400-yard
medley relay broken down into four
100-yard races. Stamm with a
clocking of :52.8 in the backstroke'
and O'Conner with his time of
:51.37 in the butterfly established
new pool records.
Kinsella re-wrote the Matt Mann
standard in the 1000-yard freestyle
with a swift 9:30.7 as teammate
John Halladay was 16 seconds
slower in placing second. Hickcox
easily won.the 200-yard for his con-
tribution to the records with a
clocking of 1:42.75.
The 500-yard freestyle saw Kin-
sella and Halladay battle Szuba in
another crowd pleaser. Kinsella
took the lead from the opening gun
and at times had a lead of several
body lengths over the other swim-
mers. But toward the end, Kin-
sella seemed to let up and both
Halladay and Szuba, a fine pair
' of freshmen tankers, came on
strong. Kinsella won' by only a
second and a half, but for a new
pool record, while Halladay touch-
ed out Szuba for second by a frac-
tion of a second.
Counsilman is looking forward .to
the Big Ten Championship to be
held at Matt Mann in three weeks
and the NCAA's in late March.
"We have to do better than this.
Everyone will be up for that and
so will me, but I hope we will have
a better showing than today."

Thiuc lads

Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING-Michigan track
is beginning to click again. Last
night at the Michigan State Re-
lays, the Wolverine thinclads made
an impressive showing as a total
of nine runners, jumpers, and put-
ters broke their own lifetime
marks in a field of 25 colleges.
Michigan coach Dixon Farmer said
that the meet was "the best in-
door meet ever" in his career.
The evening's highlight, though,
had to be MSU's Bob Casselman,
who set a new world's record in
the 600-yard run at 1:08.2. Cassel-
man combined his talents with
Marshall Dill, Mike Holt, and Mike
Murphy to set a new Jenison Field-
house record of 3:14.4. Michigan
placed third in this event, missing
the NCAA qualifying time by a
tenth of a second.
In the distance-medley relay,
the Michigan time of 9:53.5 did
qualify for the NCAA meet. Bill
Bolster established a personal
mark of 4:08.6 in his mile clip.
Next week Bolster meets Spartan
miler Ken Popejoy, who ran a
4:03.2 last night, when Michigan
hosts MSU in a dual meet.,
Wolverine Abraham Butler pro-
duced a first place in the triple
jump, leaping 49-4 . His runner-
up, Pat Onyango, hadn't been de-
feated in Big Ten competition in
three years.
The shot 'put sported three 59-
foot throws. Steve Adams threw his
season best at 59-634 while his two
cohorts, Mike Lantry and Brian
Block, also set personal records.
Although taking a second place
to Bob Unger's , new meet and
fieldhouse record, Rick Schott
made last night his night in the
two-mile To say the least, he was
ecstatic over' his time of 8:52.3.
In the past two weeks, he has
"easily" knocked '13 seconds off
his previous best time.
The high jump competition held
the interest of many spectators af-
ter the completion of the running
events as Michigan's 'Mike No-
wacki and Kansas' Barry Schur
assaulted the Jenison mark of 7-0.
Nowacki cleared the 6-11 mark to
qualify for the NCAA meet, but
couldn't quite hit the sevenfoot
height. Schur set the new field-
house record at 7-0 1/4.
