* By BUDDY MOOREHOUSE
Suffice it to say it was not an overly
productive weekend for the Michigan
netters. The women's team dropped a
close match to Michigan State, 5-4, on
Sunday, and the men's first doubles
combination of Michael Leach and Matt
Horwich lost in the first round of a
doubles tournament in Nebraska.
The women netters were tied 4-4 with
MSU with only the first doubles matdh
*eft to play. But the Wolverines had to
forfeit the match when Ann Kercher in-
jured her ankle during the contest,
giving Michigan State the narrow vic-
tory.
"I think we could have performed
better," said Coach Ollie Owens. "I
thought we should have beaten them."
Victbrious for the Wolverines were
Sue Weber at number two singles, Rob-
bie Risdon at fourth singles, Jill Hertz-
man at fifth singles, and Weber and
lisdon at second doubles.
The Wolverine women will hit the
road over spring break, playing six
dual matches in the southern states.
Meanwhile, Michigan's men were
Salso having sour luck. According to
Matt Horwich: "Things didn't go very
well for us this weekend. Michael
(Leach) and I were seeded second in
the tournament, but we. lost our first
match to South Carolina's number one
doubles team."

By LEE KATTERMAN
The men's gymnastics loaded both
barrels for last weekend's meet in Iowa
City, and managed a pair of critical hits
- even if they weren't right on the
mark.
In competition with Wisconsin and
Iowa simultaneously, the Wolverines
handily defeated both Big Ten opponen-
ts. The final scores gave Michigan vic-
tories over Iowa, 263.25-257.5, and
Wisconsin, 263.05-249.7.
THE VICTORIES gave Michigan a
10-5 dual meet record with only Thur-
sday's Michigan State contest before
the Big Ten Championships, scheduled
for March 7-8 in Bloomington, Indiana.
The Wolverines had been shooting for
a team score somewhat higher, but
Coach Newt Loken said he was happy
with the pair of 263's.
"We were hoping to push 268," said
Loken, "but we had a few problems
with some of our routinies; nothing
major, just little things which, when
added up, lowered our score by two or
three points."
On the bright side, Loken boasted his
team has tallied better than 260 ten
times this season, which puts the
Wolverines in the top fifteen teams in
the nation, based on average meet
score.-
THE VAULTERS continued to im-
prove on what was already an outstan-
ding record, scoring a new season high
of 47.6 - an average of just over 9.5 per
man. Leader for Michigan was fresh-
man Kevin McKee at 9.75, closely
followed by junior Chris Van, Mierlo's
9.65; scores which put these two among
the nation's ten best vaulters.
Over on side horse, an event that has
given Michigan some problems this
season, all three Wolverine specialists
competed - and all three hit good
routines.

SInce two meets went on at the same
time, one with Iowa and another with
Wisconsin, Loken used seniors Brian
Carey and Dorian Deaver, who scored
9.15 and 9.1, respectively, against Iowa.
Deaver's score was added to junior
John Rieckhoff's 8.95 in Michigan's
total against Wisconsin.
What remains for Loken is to decide
which of these three side horsemen will
swing for the Wolverines in next week's
all-important Big Ten Championship.
When asked who his choices are, Loken
said he won't know until later in the
week after discussing it over with all
three.
ANOTHER outstanding performance
came from senior Gordon Higman on
rings. His 9.35 was his career best and
tied him for first with teammate
Darrell Yee, the reigning Big Ten rings
champion.
With .only two days until the MSU
meet, and then another week before the
Big Ten Championships, much of the

team's time will be spent refining parts
of routines aimed at .repeating
Michigan's earlier tallies over 265.
"It feels like a 266 or somewhere in
that neighborhood will take the Big
Ten's," said Loken. "It'll be a real cliff-
hanger, since four teams (Michigan,
Minnesota, Ohio State and Illinois) are
all able to win the trophy."
