have a shot at overtaking league-
leading North Dakota, who they play
next weekend in Grand Forks.

Eaves. Eaves returned to the lineup
last weekend agaisnt Michigan Tech
and saw only limited action in the two-
game series.
Friday night he was ,aking his
regular shift and getting back into the
scoring groove, figuring in two of
Michigan's four goals. But late in the
third period he suffered a shoulder
seperation and didn't play the last five
Michigan tied the game at 5-5 with

outstanding game in the net for the

S PTfiSiggg E tI

Wolverines. In the first game of the
series he Mopped 51 Irish shots and last
night he turned away 38.
Michigan scored its first goal of the
third period when coach Dan Farrell
used some keen strategy. He put two of
his heavyweights, Lundberg (5-11, 190)

and defenseman Dave Richter (6-5,
210), on a line with Roger Bourne and
within seconds Lundberg put one in the
net to tie the game at 3-3.
It looked like Michigan was going to
take control after that but the Fighting
Irish quickly tallied two more goals

S4ithin the next three minutes to take a
5 3 lead.,
Friday night's contest-packed with
solid body-checking and aggressive
play by theFighting Irish.
And its aggressive play paid off as
they took a 1-0 led early in the first
period. Notre Dame, captain Greg
Meredith tipped in Tom Michalek's
head-high shot. Michigan protested that
Meredith had batted it with a high stick,
but the referees weren't going to change
their decision.
Less than three minutes later the
Wolverines answered back with a goal
by Roger Bourne. Bourne received a
cross-rink pass from Bruno Baseotto in
his own end and he beat the only Irish
defenseman in front of him. He then
riffled the puck over the glove of goalie
Dave Laurion.

mintues into the second period, when
Baseotto slapped a John Blum pass in
the Notre Dame net for his 28th goal of
the season.

second goal of the evening to tie the
score at 2-2.

Lattany leaps to record height
at Central Collegiate track meet

The final day of action at the Central
Collegiate Conference indoor track
championships yesterday saw four
meet records broken before an
enthusiastic crowd at the Track and
Tennis Building.
Michigan's superb high jumper, Mike
Lattany, leaped to a new record of
7'4 ", demolishing the competition
and establishing a personal best.
Western Michigan's Jack McIntosh had

sent the crowd abuzz Friday night with
a dazzling 2:57 3/4-mile split on a
distance medley leg, and the next day
he showed that he had plenty left in
reserve. The second place finisher in
the '79 NCAA 8:00won the 880 in a record
of 1:50.1 (breaking the old mark of
1:51.1 set by Oylmpic bronze medalist
Rick Wohlhuter in 1971), and anchored
WMU's mile relay with a 49.2 440.
his 440 mark of 47.89 set Friday night
with a 47.88, as he nipped Michigan's
Andrew Bruce for first by 22/100 of a
second. The final mark broken was in
the 4 x 880 relay, as Pitt's foursome
roared to a 7:33.9 clocking, wiping the
old record of 7:35.9 set by Bowling
Green off the books.
Michigan competitors fared wellin
every event they entered: Dan
Heikkinen won the two mile in 8:44.5,
with teammate Bill Weidenbach in
second; Butch Woolfolk finished second

in the 60 (6.48) and 300 (30.3, hand-
timing) as Darryl Gholston copped fifth
place in the 300 with a 31.0; Ted Dobson
was fifth in the 440 (49.07); and Greg
Thomas finished fifth in the 880 in
1:53.0, with brother Tim a few feet back
in 1:53.6.
the 600 was Ron Affoon in sixth (the top
six places in each event count towards
scoring) with a 1:12.32. Michigan had
three finalists in the 60-yard high
hurdles, as Marshall Parks, Shelby
Johnson, and Gary Hicks went 2-5-6. In
the final event of the meet, the 4 x 440
relay, the Wolverines reigned supreme,
as they cruised to a 3:13.6 win.
Other action saw Penn's Alan
Scharsu use a smooth last lap kick to
nip a strong mile field in 4:05.9,
Michigan State's Randy Smith burn to a
6.31 win in the 60, and Michigan's
James Ross win the long jump with a

LAKE PLACID, N.Y.-Mike Eruzione, Mark Johnson and Dave Silk
all scored their second goals of the Olympics in the second period yesterday,

The victory temporarily gave the Americans first place in the Blue

Norway took a 1-0 lead at 4:19 of the first period when Geir Myhre, a 25-

Hi.den wins 2nd gold
Eric Heiden of the United States was firmly on course for a sweep of
the speed skating gold medals at the XIII Winter Olympics yesterday after
winning the men's 5,000-meter event in an Olympic record time of 7 minutes,
2:2 9seconds.
Norway's Kai Arne Stenshjemmet won the silver with a time of 7:03.28.
The bronze went to his countryman, Tom Erik Oxholm, in 7:05.59.
Heiden, the 21-year-old from Madison, Wis., won his second gold in as
many days. And now he has completed the two distances about which he had
been most worried-the 500 and the 5,000. Next comes the 1,000 on Tuesday
and the 1,500 next Thursday. He is very confident at both distances.
The concluding event for men is the 10,000 next Saturday.
Heiden is to skate them all and could be the first man ever to sweep the
Olympic speed skating events. Ard Schenk of the Netherlands one of
Heiden's heroes, has won more golds than anyone else--three at ┬žapporo,
Japan, in 1972, when there were only four men's events. The 1,000 meters
was added in 1976.

The Michigan matmen sent the Ohio
State wrestlingteam home last night
without a story to tell. With the
Wolverines taking the 24-14 victory,
Buckeye coach Chris, Ford said, "We
really thought we could handle this
one." But as the fans at Crisler Arena
witnessed last night, Ohio State, with a
3-5 Big Ten record, never had the power
to maneuver into anything when they
were on top.
Michigan's only losses fell upon their
three freshman starters. Tom Davids,
in the 118 weight class, couldn't get up
from under Buckeye Joe Briggs and
suffered a 5-0 defeat. Wolverine Bob
Siar, in the 134 weight class, lost a fast-
paced match against Jeff Woo 6-5.
Tim Fagan, replacing Bill Konovsky
who is out with a sore shoulder, lost to
Ohio State's Ed Potokar 8-0 in the 167
weight class.
In the 126 weight class, Wolverine
Larry Haughn kept Bill Weaver
scoreless to win 4-0. Mark Pearson,
wrestling in the 142 weight class for

Michigan, had an 11-3 lead over Kelvin
Irby, but an illegal scissor hold call on
the Buckeye grappler steamed him on
to tie the matchup with a final score of
John Beljan defeated Ohio State's
Carl Reed 9-0 in the 150 weight class. In
the 158 weight class, Michigan's Nemir
Nadhir took an early lead, but Buckeye
Dan Messerall kept steady with him the
rest of the way. Messerall tied it up to'
end the score at 9-9.
Michigan co-captains Steve Fraser
and Bill Petoskey both put on excellent
performances last night. Fraser,. the
Wolverine power maril this year in the
177 weight class, pinned Jay Grainer
and Petoksey, at 190, defeated Kent
Bruggerman 6-0.
Wolverine heavyweight man Eric
Klasson, with a definite height
advantage, won his match but had
difficulty maneuvering Ohio State's big
man, Jeff Golz, keeping the match
score to a close 5-4.
The victory for the Wolverines boosts
their overall record to 10-5-1, 5-3-1 in the
Big Ten.

Gardner's hopes 'shot'


Randy Gardner raised the question about whether a pain-killing injec-
tion cost him and Tai Babilonia their shot at Olympic gold yesterday when he
said he took the shot just 15 minutes before he was to compete.
"It was the first time I ever experienced a shot like that," said Gardner,
21, at a news conference a day after he and Babilonia, 19, were forced to
withdraw from competition because of a groin injury Randy suffered in
practice two weeks ago and then injured more seriously in practice here
Wednesday night.
The pair withdrew after- Randy fell three times in a warmup
immediately preceeding what was to have been the beginning of their quest
for the first American gold in pairs.
"I couldn't do two of the required elements because of extreme pain, so
it was then I decided I had to numb it."
But with the numbing, Randy said, he lost feeling in his leg. "I couldn't
feel my left leg, where it was in position . I couldn't feel the positions I was
supposed to be in, but I didn't feel much pain either."

Michigan gymrvrnasts take on Indiana State

Berths to men's and women's post-

season championship meets will be
decided, at least in part, by the average
meet score of the past season.
Men's coach Newt Loken said that
today's clash with Indiana State, a
"national power", is important if the
Wolverines expect to participate in the
NCAA championships in April.
"They have a slight edge, having
scored higher than us this season,"
Loken admitted. "But we feel like
