By THERESA SWEDO
After a come-from-behind Big
Ten Championship win, Coach
Newt Loken's Michigan gymnasts
begin competition in the NCAA's
this afternoon. Located in Eu-
gene, Oregon this year, the Na-
tionals will run for three days,
with the finals taking place on
Saturday.
Coach Loken took the mini-
mum twelve man squad with him,
including the injured T e r r y
Boys. Boys suffered a sprained
ankle in the Big Ten floor exer-
cise preliminaries. Although qual-
ifying for the finals, he was un-
able to perform.
Michigan won the trip to Ore-
gon by slightly more than a
point in the Big Ten's, defeating
Minnesota and Iowa, 317.60 to
316.85. After trailing both op-
ponents in both the compulsories
and the first-day optional events
(rings, floor exercise and side-
horse), an inspired Michigan
squad totaled 81.75 points on the
meet's final day.
Parallel bar specialist B o b
Johnson grabbed a 9.35, and Jean
Gagnon a 9.25 in the same event.
Such powerful performances
made the difference, and the
Gophers and the Hawkeyes sadly
watched their expected battle dis-
appear.
But the clinching performance
waited for the final event-vault-
ing. Pierre Leclerc assured a
Michigan triumph with an out-

r

title, placing behind Iowa's Gary
Quigg.
The closest Gura had previous-
ly come to the crown was in
1971, when he finished second to
teammate Rick McCurdy. Last
year was a disappointment. for
Michigan's graduating captain,
as he came in fifth, far behind
Iowa's Dean Showalter.
Gura is currently one of eight
candidates for the Nissen Award,
presented to the nation's out-
standing senior gymnast.
In addition to Gura in individ-
pal honors, junior Monty Falb
captured third in the BigTen for
the rings. Placing behind Ben-
ny Fernandez of Indiana, a ca-
reer-long rival, and Dan Repp
of Iowa, Falb can look forward
to his senior year for another
shot at the coveted title.
The Wolverines' last NCAA win
came in 1970, as they defeated
Iowa State by a score of 164.15
to 164.05. In a characteristic
eleventh-hour victory, the final
man to compete took it all f o r
Michigan.
Ed Howard, the meet's last
man up, needed a 9.3 to put the
Wolverines in a tie with Iowa
State. With a spectacular effort
and a score of 9.4, Howard sin-
glehandedly gave Michigan the
national championship.
The 197-1 NCAA's turned out to
be a bitter disappointment for the

Iowa State, the meet's event
winner, qualified for the fin
followed by Southern Illinois

f11nwIVV 1w U5n,,tV11r1111UID 6110
Penn State. The depression that
followed that meet, and the talk
of a fading dynasty, were to be
even more intensified the follow-
ing year.
Last year the Wolverines fail-
ed to take the Big Tens, bow-
ing to the Iowa Hawkeyes. But
like spring and Johnny Orr, Mich-
igan gymnastics have made it
back.
Michigan's bid for a national
title this year faces stiff compe-
tition from teams who have con-
sistently scored higher than the
Wolverines. Powerhouses I o w a
State, Oklahoma State and Penn
State have an edge on Loken's
men,- having established a high-
er scoring pattern throughout the
dual meet season and their con-
ference championships.
The calibre of performances
Loken saw at the Big Tens merits
some optimistic views, however.
The Wolverines should put up a
tenacious fight, as befits their
nickname.
