Men gymnasts hope,
to chop Sycamores
By GEOFFREY LARCOM
Michigan's men gymnasts might be tempted to look ahead
to the upcoming Big Ten meet while competing tonight at
Terre Haute, Indiana.
But they won't.
Not when its opponent is Indiana State, who is currently
rated number two in the nation, and has also posted scores
of 217.8 and 214.5 this year.
"The timing for this meet is perfect," beamed Wolverine
Coach Newt Loken. "A powerhouse like Indiana State will serve -
as excellent preparation for the Big Ten Meet."
"We won't be intimidated though," warned Loken.
"We're healthy overall and after an unimpressive start,
the team is coming together. We expect to score over
210 tonight," he added.
Olympian Kurt Thomas leads the Sycamores in the all-
around competition, scoring an average of 9.35 in each event.
"Watch the lineup between our Nigel Rothwell and Thomas,"
advised Loken. "Nigel loves competition, especially when its
against the best."
"No doubt about it," Rothwell agreed. "A guy like Thomas
stimulates you. He makes you reach for that little extra in the
routines."
Along with Thomas, ISU boasts 9.6 scorer Ron Breines
in the floor exercise in addition to Ed Paul and Jack Fis-I
cher, who've reached 9.3 in the pommel horse and rings re-
spectively.
Paul faces a strong' dual challenge from Michigan sen-
ior Chuck Ventura and sophomore Brian Carey. Carey is
rated number ten in the country in pommel horse.

Parallel bar man John Corn-

"John was rated tops in the
NCAA last week and he's get-,

"Like the rest of us, I think
he's peaking at just the right
time."'
"Our captain, Scott Ponto,
