CANALES ONL Y BRIGHT SPO T IN MEN'S DEFEA T
Tankers submerged by Indiana

TheMichigan Doily-Tuesday, January 29, 1980-Page 11

By KENT WALLEY
"It's one thing to get knocked down, but it's another to
get back up again," said Bill Farley, coach of the Michigan
men's swim team. The knock down he was speaking of was
chigan's 69-44 loss to Indiana Friday at Royer Pool in
loomington.
HAVING WON over 100 straight meets at home, Indiana
has always been in contention for the Big Ten Championship.
This year, however, Michigan stood a good chance of beating
them.
But it was not to be for the Wolverines. "It (Michigan's
performance) was no where near what I expected," said
Farley. "Everybody was off." And indeed only swimmer
Fernando Canales performed up to his potential.
Canales won the 100 and 200 yard freestyle events with
apes df 44.959 and 1:37.968 respectively. He also contributed

to a win in the-400 yard freestyle relay. All of these made the
NKCAA cut off for the events.
INDIANA, ON the other hand, took first and second in the
1000 yard freestyle. James Kegley finished first and Kevin
Auger second with times of 9:21.112 and 9:43.110 respec-
tively. Indiana also took first and second in the 200 yard in-
dividual medley, the 200 yard butterfly, the 200 yard
backstroke, and the 500 yard freestyle.
However, Farley still believes that Michigan "will be in
the thick of things in the Big Ten and the Collegiates." He
stated, "We didn't get beat, we lost the meet. We just didn't
swim well."
The test to see if Michigan can bounce back may well be
Friday, when NC State arrives in Ann Arbor. Besides In-
diana, NC State is probably Michigan's toughest meet all
year. If the Wolverines are to remain in the thick of things
they will need a big win agaisnt N C State this week.

SPORTS OF THE DAILY:
'M' netters knocked out

By SCOTT M. LEWIS
After recording major upsets Thur-
sday night, Michigan's Matt Horwitch
and Michael Leach both were
uminated in the second round of the
Prince All-American Tennis Indoor
Singles tournament held in Houston.
Leach, who defeated three-time All-
American and 1979 NCAA singles run-
ner-up Erick Iskersky of Trinity in the
opening round, lost to UCLA's Blaine
Willenborg, 6-3, 6-4 Friday. According
to Michigan coach Brian Eisner,
Leach's failure to break Willenborg's
serve was a pivotal factor in the match.
Prior to last week's meeting, Leach
Wd Willenborg had faced each other
twice on the junior circuit, each player
winning once.
Horwitch, meanwhile, pressed top-
seeded Jay Lapidus in the first set
Friday before succumbing, 6-4, 6-1 to
the Princeton 'ace. The Wolverine
Junior had a 2-1 lead and was one point
away from taking a commanding 3-1
edge before the tide began to turn.
To reach the second round, Horwitch
. jpled South African sensation Eddie
wards in straight sets. Edwards,
who plays for Pepperdine University,
was an NCAA semifinalist two years
ago and last season lost in the NCAA's
io former Wolverine Jeff Etterbeek,
two-time Big Ten first singles cham-
pion.
- "They (Horwitch and Leach) both
played extremely well Thursday," said
tisner. "The problem is in maintaining
That high level of play."
& The Wolverines return to action next
ursday when they compete in the IT-
CA National Collegiate Indoor Cham-
pionship hosted by Princeton.
Michigan, ranked 15th nationally, faces
'number four Cal-Berkeley in the
'opening round,.,,
Tracksters dominate
S:Coach Jack Harvey and his thinclads
;accomplished what they set out to do at
he Michigan Relays Saturday night.
efore an enthusiastic, capacity crowd
they ptit on one of their finest perfor-
nances of the young indoor track
;season, defeating 20 other squads.
But, just as importantly, the distance
nedley team covered the two and one-
half miles in a blistering 9:45.18.
2r'hough they finished second to MSU in
that race, their time easily qualifies
them for the NCAA championships in
Detroit on March 14-15.
The distance medley team was
tacked' by Harvey with his best mid-
dle distance men. After the meet Har-
vy enthused "Dan Heikinnen was just
,super. He anchored our distance
medley."
Heikinnen also ran in the two mile.
;fe finished second at 8:52.25 to in-

dependent runner Ted Rupe's 8:49.12.
Andrew Bruce captured first place in
his specialty, the 300 meters, with a
varsity and fieldhouse record time of
30.2 seconds. As usual, Bill Donakowski
crossed the finish line first in the mile,
winning by more than three seconds.
He finished in 4:05, impressive con-
sidering the Relays were only the third
meet of the indoor season.
James Ross dominated the field in
the long jump, with a winning jump of
24'8", more than a foot further than his
nearest competitor. "He (Ross) has
jumped better but he jumped very well
today," said Harvey.
- The mile relay team of Andrew
Bruce, Ken Gardner, Ron Affoon, and
Ted Dobson made a comeback after a
somewhat shaky start to defeat the
Concerned Athletes Track Club by
merely a second. Gardner and Affoon,
the middle two legs, were particularly
explosive and were highly instrumental
in the final time of 3:15.8.
In the final event of the evening Mike
Lattany, yellow cap planted securely on
his head, brought the partisan crowd to
its feet with his gravity-defying ex-
ploits.
Lattany cleared the bar on his first
attempt at 6'11" and 7'1", finally going
out at 7'4". His early successful jumps
won him the event on the basis of fewer
misses because two other competitors
also cleared 7'3", the winning height.

AFTER DEFEATING Purdue 30-9
last Friday night at Crisler arena, the
Michigan grapplers came back Satur-
day night for an encore performance,
leaving Illinois on the niats with a score
of 22-20. The weekend's victories
brought the 18th ranked Michigan
wrestlers to an 8-1-1 record and a solid
chance of boosting their ranking later
this week.
Saturday night's performance
inevitably drew some encouraging
words from coach Dale Bahr. "We're
doing a good job of covering for the in-
juries,," remarked Bahr, "I feel we're,
developing some depth."
Although 118-pound Wolverine mat-
man Tom Davids lost his match against
Bruce Irussi of Illinois, 10-2, Michigan's
lower weights, usually a weak point,
deserve a large share of credit. Larry
Haughn beat Illinois' John Bowman in
the 126-pound weight class by a score of
6-2 and Wolverine grappler Bob Siar
came on strong, pinning John Cortez in
the 134-pound weight class.
. Wolverine Tim Fagan was stopped by
Trent Taylor .10-6 in the 158-pound
weight class. Michigan's Nemir Nadhir
annihilated Dave Helmick 13-4 in the
167-pound weight class.
Wolverines Bill Konovsky, 177 poun-
ds, and Bill Petoskey, 190 pounds, both
won their matches 12-11 and 22-6
respectively.
Michigan heavyweight man Steve
Bennett didn't see any action Saturday
night due to an Illinois' forfeit.

Gymnasts falter on road
Injuries, a distressing plague to
gymnasts everywhere, took their toll on
Michigan's women gymnasts over the
weekend, as they saw their undefeated
record disintegrate on a two-meet road
trip.
The tumblers finished ninth in a field
of 11 at the Windy City Invitational in
Chicago Saturday, scoring a season low
of 124.85. Ironically, Illinois, a team
which the Wolverines narrowly
defeated in a dual meet only one week
earlier, finished third at 130.50.
The following day Michigan took its
road show to East Lansing for the an-
nual battle with Michigan Stae. The
Wolverines improved their score to
128.85, but the 11th-ranked Spatans
emerged victorious with a 133.00 score.
Coach Sheri Hyatt attributed the
scores, particularly on Saturday, to two
key injuries. Floor exercise ace Sara
Flom and all-arounder Teresa Berton-
cin were both nursing injuries, although
Bertoncin managed to compete in the
bars event in Chicago. Flom, who
missed both competitions, is expected
to return to action at the Big Ten cham-
pionshops Feb. 8-9.
