Churella leads Blue
to ninth in nation
By BILLY NEFF
,Michigan sophomore Mark Churella capped off a fine
individual season by capturing the national wrestling cham-
pionship at 150 pounds Saturday night in Norman, Okla-
homa. The Wolverines last national champion was Jarrett
Hubbard in 1974, who also wrestled at 150 pounds.
The Wolverine's other place winner, Captain Mark John-
son, finished in his customary bridesmaid's role in the
NCAA finals behind Iowa's Chris Campbell. Michigan fin-
ished ninth in the tournament behind champion Iowa State.
Seeded fourth and having to confront two foes to whom
he had lost during the season, Churella had an uphill strug-
gle all the way. But nothing could deny the Farmington
Hills native this year in his quest for the NCAA title.
After pinning his first two opponents, and clobber-
Ink his next two in decisions, Churella then encoun-
tered number one seed Paul Martin of Oklahoma State.
Churella took control of the match from the outset and
held on for a surprisingly easy 9-7 victory.
In the finals he was pitted against Iowa State's Joe Zus-
pann, who had decisively defeated Churella 10-2 earlier this
year. After the first period, Zuspann led again 2-1. But
Churella came alive in the second nriod with a near fall
and followed with another near fall in the third session for
a 9-3 win and the NCAA championship.
Johnson, who has lived in the shadow of Iowa's Campbell
for most of his wrestling career at Michigan, continued in
this darkness by suffering a 12-6 disappointment at the
hands of Iowa All-American Chris Campbell.
To reach the finals, Johnson wrestled some of the finest
matches seen in the national tournament. He registered a
pin and two nearfalls before soundly thrashing Penn
State's Jerry White, 7-1, in the semifinals. Earlier in the
season, White had tied Johnson.
In a real surprise at 118 pounds, Olympian Jim Haines
from Wisconsin upended Minnesota's Mike McArthur,
who had conquered Haines three times this year.
Hofstra's Nick Gallo cruised through the 126 pound weight
class and captured most valuable wrestler honors, barely
nudging out Churella. According to Wolverine coach Bille
Johannesen, "there were too many Eastern coaches on the
At 134 and 142 pounds, Minnesota's Pat Neu and Okla-
homa's Steve Barrett respectively copped those titles.
Michigan's Amos Goodlow secured a fall in his first round
match at 126 pounds but then had to come up against Olym-
pian Jimmy Carr, who crushed him, 12-3. At 134 pounds,
the Wolverines' Rich Lubell lost a first round overtime
match to Penn State's Jim Earl. Junior Karl Briggs was
pinned by St. Cloud State's Ricky Clark in the initial round
in the 142 pound weight class.
Two-time "national champion Lee Kemp of Wisconsin eas-
ily grabbed the laurels at 158 pounds while Oklahoma
State's Rod Kilgore was victorious at 167. Michigan's Ed
Neiswender nipped Navy's Roger Fleischer in his opener
but then had to default with third-seeded Dave Powell of
Iowa State, due to a knee injury.
