Tumbing woes:

Blue gymnastics teams
are toppled by Buckeyes

By LEE KATTERMAN
Even with sbme extra lift-comple-
ents of the Buckeyes-the Michigan
ymnasts weren't able to bounce past
their Columbus rivals in last Saturday's
dual meet, losing 269.35-263.95.
Tumbling on a "spring floor" for the
first meet this season, the floor exercise
team posted its best total of the season.
Senior captain Jim Varilek captured
first with his high flying above the
upique four-layered surface, scoring a
9.6. Freshman Kevin McKee tied for
second with the Buckeyes' Howard
acanelli at 9.45, and the Wolverines
finished the first even with a slim one-
tenth point lead.
AS HAS BEEN the case in some of the
Wolverines' previous losses, the meet
looked like it might slip away during
side horse.
Michigan coach Newt Loken has
oomething of a dilemma with three
~skilled side horse specialists and only
-two available slots. Consequently,
Loken made a switch for the Ohio State
neet and; brought Brian Carey along
instead of Dorian Deaver.
Fourtunately for Carey, he
completed a good set and scored a 9.1
for second place. Not so lucky was John
Rieckhoff. Loken said he was "a little
off-balance" during a move aptly
named a "helicopter" and scored an
8.3, well below his average. What made
things worse was that Rieckhoff's tally
was still second best for Wolverine
horsemen, and Michigan found itself
behind by two points.
The ring team came on strong, led by
Big Ten ring champion Darrell Yee's
9.5, with four Wolverines scoring in the
9's.
The vaulters followed suit-four 9's
and an 8.9-and the contest was a dead
heat.
THE MEET took its final turn for the
worse when Michigan's parallel bar
score was nearly two points behind the
Buckeyes'. Sophomore Marshall
.arfield had some difficulty with the
early part of his routine and never
recovered.,His 7.1 was not included in
the team score, which is unusual and
contributed to the below average 41.25
on this event.
With over two points to make up, the
high bar squad faced: a major
challenge. Although the Wolverines
averaged 8.87, three Buckeyes scored
.9.4 or better to insure the Ohio State
victory.

Special to The lily
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - Michigan's
women's basketball team was out-
sc6red by 28 points in the second half
last night as it lost to Indiana State, 100-,
70, dropping the Wolverines' record to
6-15.
The women cagers held a nine-point
lead at one juncture in the opening half
before the Sycamores took their first
lead, 40-38, in the waning seconds of the
half.
Indiana State's Shelly Newell led all
scorers with 31 points, 26 coming in the
second half, while teammate Judy
Ellner had 23. Co-captains Abby
Currier and Diane Dietz paced the
Wolverines with 18 and 14 points,
respectively.
Michigan's next action comes this
weekend when it competes in the Penn
State Coca-Cola Invitational Tour-
nament. Its first opponent is South
Carolina.

BULLETIN
Kurt Thomas, 23, the first American
to win an all-around medal in world
gymnastics competition, received the
Amateur Athletic Union's prestigious
Sullivan Award last night as the
nation's outstanding amateur athlete
for 1979.
Women edged
in Columbus
Justice. That's what the Illinois

women gymnastics team might be
snickering back in Champagne after
the Michigan women's gymnastics
team lost to Ohio State last weekend by
. 05 points, 130-65-130.6.
I The- Michigan women upset the
highly-rated Illini three weeks ago by
that same narrow margin.
But, the loss doesn't throw a hitch
into Michigan's chances for qualifying
for the regionals-the goal of the
women gymnasts. The crierion for
qualification is team average score, not
total record.
THE OHIO STATE meet was a dis-
appointment to coach Shari Hyatt as her
team was the favorite in the
competition. "We should have won,

easily," said Hyatt. "But we had three
falls off the beam which had to be
counted in the scoring. Our beam
scores just weren't up to par."
The highlight of the meet was Teresa
Bentoncin's performance. The recently
injured Bertoncin showed she is near
100 per cent by taking first in the
uneven parallel bars with a score of 8.6.
She added a first in the floor exercise
with 8.6, enabling her to capture all-
around honors with 33.85 points, her
career high.
Cindy Shearon also put in a good
performance, taking first in the
vaulting with 8.6.
THE WOMEN'S average score at this
point is 130.5 points per meet. This
number places Michigan in fine
shape as it prepares for the Big Ten
Championships this weekend.
Hyatt seems pleased with her team's
performances as a whole this season
and proud of her team's position at this
point. "Our average score fo 130.5 is
above the top four scores of the
qualifiers for last year's regionals,"
said Hyatt. "Depending on how we feel
on Saturday, there's no telling how far
we'll go.',

Rough road trip damages
Michigan matmen srcr
By DREW SHARP
The Michigan wrestlers were the Cinderella team of the season, sporting an 8-
1-1 record and winning their last six matches in a row. But the clock struck twelve
for the Wolverines this past weekend when they fell at the hands of Iowa, Iowa
State and Minnesota on three consecutive days, 33-6, 27-8 and 25-13.
It was an uphill struggle from the beginning since Iowa was ranked number
one in the country, Iowa State No. 2 and Minnesota No. 6.
Thursday night, the grapplers first traveled to Ames, Iowa to take on the
Cyclones of Iowa State and gave them all they could handle.
THREE MATCHES which Michigan lost were decided by one or two points.
Junior Bill Konovsky tied Perry Hummel in 167 weight class and Hummel is the
top-rated wrestler of his class in the country. Senior co-captain Bill Petoskey lost
by two points to Mike Mann in the 190 weight group. Mann also is rated the best
wrestler of his weight in the NCAA.
Friday night, Michigan traveled across the state to Iowa City to take on the
Hawkeyes. There, the closest the Wolverines came to winning was when
sophomore Nemir Nadhir lost to Mark Stephenson by just two points, 13-11 and
Konovsky was edged out by Doug Anderson, 7-6.
Saturday night, the marathon trek continued and took the Wolverines north to
Minneapolis, where the Golden Gophers were waiting in the wings.
THERE WERE some promising signs at Minnesota as sophomore John Beljan
defeated Vic Martinez, 7-6 in the 150 weight category and heavyweight Eric
Klasson beat Jim Becker. It wasn't enough, however, as the Wolverines fell for the
third straight day.
It seems peculiar that Michigan would face three strong teams on the road for
three consecutive evenings. One would think that it's a scheduling mistake but ac-
tually it was head coach Dale Bahr's plan to have it that way.
"Dale believed that it would be best for the team," said Wells. "When it comes
down to NCAA championship time, we'll be competing against excellent teams,
one day after another, away from home. So we looked upon this past weekend as a
learning experience for us."
Maybe the Wolverines did not come out of this weekend as winners but they
are definitely wiser.
