Ohio State and Michigan, move over. Another Big Two
has arrived.
It was only too obvious March 4-5 at Crisler Arena, as the
Iowa Hawkeyes and Wisconsin Badgers turned the Big Ten
Wrestling Meet into their own private party.
THE HAWKEYES, in placing eight wrestlers in the
finals, totaled a record'117 points, while the Badgers, with
seven finalists, scored 94. Off in the distance were third and
fourth place finishers Michigan State and Minnesota, with
33 and 303/4 points respectively. Michigan was fifth at
271/4, with Northwestern, Indiana, Illinois, OSU and Purdue
rounding out the second division.
Michigan's Mark Churella at 150 was the lone wrestler to
crack the Iowa-Wisconsin monopoly as the Hawkeyes cop-
ped six individual titles and the Badgers three.
In defeating Bruce Kinseth of Iowa in the title match,
Churella scored an early near-pin, and then rode out the
match on top for a ten-to-three victory.
"KINSETH HAS always been a strong finisher, so my
goal was to score points quickly and then hold on," com-
mented Churella. "I'd wrestled him three times before and
pretty well knew what to expect."v
"That first move of Mark's really drained Kinseth," ad-
ded Wolverine coach Bill Johannesen. "He lost confidence
when he saw what Mark could do."
Accompanying Churella to this weekend's NCAA tour-
nament at College Park, Md. will be Wolverine qualifiers
Steve Fraser (177), who took third, and heavyweight Steve
Bennet, who finished fourth.
FRASER'S TITLE drive started on a sour note, as the
eventual champion, Hawkeye Greg Stevens, defeated him
7-5. In the consolations Fraser mowed down Ron Johns of
Purdue, Gopher Tom Press and top seeded Jim Kleinhans
of Wisconsin enroute to his third place finish.
Fraser glossed over the frustrating fact that he had
defeated Stevens in a dual meet earlier this year (5-3), and
instead set his sights high for the NCAA competition.
"It's kind of frustrating, but that's the way it goes," said
Fraser, as he sat accepting congratulations at Crisler. "I
just made too many mistakes. I think I might surprise some
people though. My goal is to eventually dominate my
weight, like Churella does now."

TO JOHANNESEN, such lofty goals seem within reach
for the husky sophomore.
"On a given day, Steve can beat just about anybody. I
wouldn't be surprised to see him place this year."
In a final vote of confidence, Fraser drew praise from
champion Stevens and his coach, Dan Gable.
"IT WAS A REAL heartlifter to beat Fraser, since I'd had
trouble with him before," said Stevens. "After that I just
couldn't see losing to anyone else."
"Stevens' win over Fraser gave our team a big lift," ad-
ded Gable. "Stevens wrestled much better here than he has
previously this season."m
'That first move of Mark's (Churella)
really drained Kinseth. He lost confi-
dence when he saw what Mark could
do.'
-Bill Johannesen
Another Wolverine success story was that of freshman
Bob McAlvey, who at 126 pounds came within two points of'
a fourth place finish and a trip to the nationals.
WRESTLING AGAINST Juan Causey of Illinois for a spot s
in the consolation finals (to decide third and fourth places),
McAlvey suffered a last-minute takedown and lost 5-4.
"Just six inches, and McAlvey's shoulders would have4
been out of bounds when he went down," groaned Johan-s
nesen.
In addition to Churella, Hawkeyes Steve Hunte (134),
Mike DeAnna (167), and John Bowlsby (Hwt.), along with
two-time national champ, Badger Lee Kemp, successfully'
defended their Big Ten titles. Kemp was voted the meet's'
most valuable wrestler, while the 126 pound titlist, Iowa's
Randy Lewis, had the most number of falls in the least
amount of time.

Rec Spots

By BILL THOMPSON
Epidemics in the gymnasium, th4
axing of the Enamel Hatchets, and the
triumph of Ox's Rec Drug have found
their places on the Michigan sports
scene. The addition of the Carps, Jaws
and Brick plus the Greek alphabet in
innumerable combinations made for
an interesting field in the intramural
basketball championships which end
tomorrow.
In Monday's games, Zeta Psi took its
second consecutive "A" team title in
Fraternity Division A with a 58-50 win
over Sigma Phi Epsilon. Sigma Phi
defeated Sigmu Nu 50-40 for the "B"
team championship. In Fraternity
Division B, Delta Upsilon took a 40-29
victory over Phi Delta Theta for the
"A" team crown, and Beta Theta Pi
emerged as the top "B" team in a 4745
slaughter of Kappa Sigma.
The equally crowded'residence hall
divisions also produced four titlists. In
Division A, Kelsey crushed Frost 68-49,
and MoJo Purple pummeled Elliot 65-54
in "B" team action. Another Kelsey
team took the "A" team title in Division
B by edging Elliot 54-52. Fifth Hamilton
secured "B" team honors by
demolishing Rhett Butler 67-34.
Independent. Division A could be
more aptly, dubbed the Football
Division, judging from the make-up of
the finalist teams. Captain Ron Sim-
pkins and nine football teammates led
City Boys to a 44-30 triumph over
Canyon despite the efforts of Canyon's
gridders, Ralph Clayton, Mike Jolly
and John Arbeznick. The Division B
title was captured by a contingent
known as "Ox's Rec Drug" as they
fractured Jaws, 54-40.
Graduate students entered the action
as Epidemics plagued Law Orange in a
50-45 victory for the Division A cham-
pionship. The Division B laurels went to
the Carps as they devoured the Enamel
Hatchers, 49-31.
In women's action, Chi Omega topped
Division A by nipping the Competitive
Women 31-29. B honors went to Brick as
they crushed the Lloydettes, 36-24.
Although the close of basketball ac-
tion does not conclude intramural
athletics for the term, only volleyball
has yet to get underway. All entries
have been taken, however, and com-
petition begins this week.
