"Sara didn't come through for us."
The words coming from Sheri Hyatt
were loud and clear, but their content
was drastically different than that
which the media were used to hearing
during the Sara Flom Era of Michigan
Flom, who is the Wolverines' first,
four-year letter winner, competed Sun-
day in her final home meet, a
triangular at Crisler Arena with
Bowling Green and Indiana State.
Among the many honors she has
received are 1979 state all-around and
regional floor exercise titles.
Thus, it was ironic that an error by
Flom on the uneven bars - a missed
handstand which resulted in-a deduc-
tion of .3 - proved to be a key to victory
for Bowling Green, which edged
Michigan, 135.35 to 135.10. Indiana
State, which brought only three gym-
nasts to Ann Arbor, finished a distant
third with 97.20.
"That could have made a differen-
ce," said Hyatt. "She scored an 8.95 on
that at Big Ten's."
Though victory over the highly-
regarded Falcons would have been a
treat for Hyatt and her team, the
Wolverine coach nonetheless had plen-
ty to smile, about. It was the tumblers
highest team score in their five-year
history, and a mental boost for the state
championship Thursday night.
With one event, the floor exercise, left
in the meet, the Falcons were ahead by
an .85 margin. It was up to the
Wolverine floor contingent, a group
particularly adept at comebacks, to
"go all out" in their final routines, as
freshman Angela Deaver declared on
the bench prior to the final event.
The Blue tumblers did just that,
pulling out a 34.6 team score which in-
cluded an 8.85 from Teresa Bertoncin,
who had missed the entire week of
practice. But the Falcons came through
with a solid floor performance of their
own (34.00) and hung on to edge the
Besides herusual praise for the team
effort, Hyatt singled out some in-
dividual performances as especially
"We had a pretty good day on bars,"
Hyatt said. "It was the first time Laurie
(Miesel) made it all the way through
With her new flip. And Cindy (Shearon)
and Dana (Kempthorn) came through
for us on vault."
With championship time drawing
near, the gymnasts have incorporated a
greater element of risk into their
routines. Deaver performed a series of
three front flips on the beam, the last of
which was her dismount. Despite a,
deduction for discontinuity, she
managed to score 8.6 for the routine.
Miesel's new bar flip was another
riskier move designed to earn
While Flom's missed handstand ap-
peared to have fatal consequences for
the team score, she managed to earn an
8.2 from the judges. And in her tour de
force, floor exercise, her strong, high
tumbling earned her a "standard's 8.7.
The state meet, which will be hosted
by Eastern Michigan, presents one ob-
stacle for the Wolverines - Michigan
State. The Spartans are hot off the heels
of their third straight Big Ten cham-
pionship, and their meet scores have
averaged two to three points higher
than the Wolverines.
"It's whoever hits," said Hyatt. "If
we hit, we could catch them."

A gracious coach often compliments
the opposing team following a loss, so
it's not surprising to hear Indiana State
gymnastics coach Roger Counsil say he
was "impressed" by the Wolverines af-
ter Sunday's Crisler Arena meet.
But Counsil's words following the
Sycamores 263.7-255.55 loss to Michigan
was more than a show of good spor-
You see, the Sycamore coach is one of
five area gymnastics coaches on the
Mideast Advisory Committee, a group
given the task of recommending
regional representatives to the NCAA
Championships scheduled for April 3-6.
"I've seen all the strong teams in the
regions," said Counsil. "To me, it's
between Michigan and Chicago Circle
(Univ. of Illinois-Chicago Circle) as to
who will go (as Mideast representative)
to the finals."
While Counsil praised the
Wolverines, Michigan Coach Newt
Loken was expressing concern that his
team's 263.7 was not good enough.
"How do you score 270?" queried
Loken, referring to the goal he hopes
his squad will yet reach. "It's so dif-
ficult to get 4 or 46 in every event."
Still, Loken expressed happiness over
defeating Indiana State, his first vie-
tory over the Sycamores in five years.
He was also encouraged- to learn of-
Counsil's positive appraisal ofnthe
Wolverine gymnasts and noted his
team has beaten, two of the Mideast's
recognized powers in Indiana State and
All the firstplace slots went to
Wolverines except for pommel horse,
where senior Dorian Deaver finished
second with his 9.3.
In fact, all the seniors performed well
in their last Ann Arbor appearance. Cap-
tain Jim Varilek improved his score a
tenth of a point from last week's meet,
capturing first on floor exercise with a
Varilek also said he was happy to
beat Indiana State, but said he had
hoped Michigan's score would have
been higher. "I think we're better than
a 263 team," he said. "We had some
missed routines today. I know -we'll
The Wolverines will have four more
opportunities to better their total, all on
the road. And the Sycamore's Counsil
said one criteria he'll use to decide on
the Mideast representative to the
NCAA finals is consistent scores, both
home and away. So Michigan has a
chance to lock up Counsil's vote.
"In the next 21,J weeks, - w.ell-
(Michigan) have to show scores worthy
of being invited to the NCAA's," con-

Throughout the 1979-80 basketball season, most Big Ten coaches have
focused one eye on the conference race and the other on high school recruits.
For Johnny Orr, Jud Heathcote, Eldon Miller and a host of other
coaches, it's Clarkston's 6-10 center Tim McCormick with whom they're
A Clarkston graduate myself, I've watched McCormick develop the past
three years. As a.junior last year, he held impressive individual statistics
including a 33 point/25 rebound average.
And though his personal statistics have dipped to 25 points and 18
rebounds per game, more importantly, McCormick boasts an impressive
"team" statistic -an umblemished 17-0 record.
"That's all that really counts," says a most modest McCormick. "If we
don't win, what good is my effort no matter how many points I score?" 1
Such a team-oriented attitude certainly scores a lot of points with college
coaches. But according to McCormick, he's only considering seven -
Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio State, U of D, Michigan State, Iowa and
Last Friday night I spoke to the heralded prep All-American after
another 25 point/20 rebound performance. In recent conversations, he's
limited most of the conversation to his high school teammates, careful not to
tip his hat toward any particular college.
Leaning Toward Michigan?
But Friday night he left me feeling that Michigan held an edge. Not by
anything he said. Just a feeling.
" Brought up with strong family ties, McCormick expresses a desire to
"play near home" so his parents can regularly see him play. Clarkston, a
few miles north of Pontiac, is but an hour drive from Ann Arbor.
" A 3.8 GPA student with interests in business, Michigan, of course,
exhibits a business school second to none.
" Last week's commitment of 6-6 all-state guard Dean Hopson of Huron
High School raised McCormick's eyebrows.
"I really like him a lot," said McCormick. "He's a total team player."
"He was a teammate of mine last summer in Georgia and was the only
one who ever looked for me (to pass). Everyone else just ran the ball up and
* And in listening to McCormick speak of Orr, he has tremendous
respect for the Michigan mentor.
"He's been just super," said McCormick. "He's showing the people what
a great coach he really is, without a Phil Hubbard or Ricky Green."
No decision yet
Although it appears McCormick is leaning toward Michigan, he says he
"won't reach a final decision until the prep season is over." Or as
McCormick put it, "until we win the state championship."
"Right now, I'm just concentrating on that title," said McCormick.
"After the season, I'll sit down with my parents and look at the pluses and
A minus for Michigan came last Saturday night. The tables were turned.
This time with McCormick judging from the stands, the Spartans upset
Michigan for the second time this season.
The defeat dropped Michigan to 14-9 with four games remaining. Four
critical games - and not solely in terms ofwins and losses.
A major criteria in McCormick's selections of a college is a winning
"My goal is an NCAA championship," said the.Clarkston star. "I want to
play on a team which will be good for four years."
Of course, any team with McCormick in its lineup will undoubtedly be a
winner. Like Earvin Johnson before him - he's a franchise. But first such a
team has to get him.
A 14-13 record is hardly a winning program - yet that's exactly what
Michigan could fall to if they allow the Spartan upset to get the best of them.
That's why that defeat could be costly. It could lead to additional defeats
- and ultimately, the loss of another blue-chip athlete.
But if the Wolverines rebound with two victories in their last four
outings, a Michigan-bound McCormick should be forthcoming.
