FRASER WINS IT FOR BLUE
By JOHN FITZPATRICK
A blazing 4 x 400 meter relay by
Michigan.. and a blistering 880 by
Wolverine middle distance ace Tim
Thomas highlighted the East Ten-
nessee Invitational Saturday at John-
"That's the fastest we've ever done
this early in the season," noted coach
Jack Harvey of his squad's time of
3:13.90, good for third place behind
Florida State and Clemson. The
Wolverines' displayed unsual con-
sistency in this usually chaotically run
event, as Ron Affoon led off with a 48.4,
followed by Ken Gardner with a 49.2,
Warren Dobson in 48.0, with Jim
Golston finishing.up with a 48.5.
Gardner's slow time is due to a lack
of sharpening work, according to Har-
vey: "He's been doing base work for.
most of the past few months, and he's
just recently started doing speedwork."
The Wolverines time qualified them
for the NCAA national championships
to be held this March at Detroit, and
onsidering that highly rated Florida
'$tate was only 2 seconds ahead of
Michigan, they should be in contention
for the top spot at Cobo arena.
Thomas' third place time of 1:52.05 in
the 880 came in a tightly contested, tac-
as he managed "only" 7'0" for fourth
place behind the 7'5 3/8" of Florida's
Jim Pringle, a meet record. "He's not
used to jumping off of the astro-turf
surface they had there," commented
Harvey. "Iy hurts his technique, since
he doesn't have time to adjust to it."
Though far below the 5'71/2" senior 's
best of 7'31/2", it compares well with his
lowest jump of last year (6'10") and is
far above the abilities of most jumpers.
If this meet is any indication of
Michigan's track strength, defending
Big Ten champ Indiana could have a
fight on its hands if it wishes to retain
the title it won last year. Only nine
Wolverine runners competed in the In-
vitational, as none of the distance corps
took part, a group of runners possessing
devastating point potential, with the
likes of All-American Dan Heikkinen,
Chuck Broski, Ed Ostrovich, Bill
Weidenbach, and Brian Diemer, whose
astonishing 60th place finish at the
NCAA cross-country championships
this past November left him ahead of
nationally ranked distance men.
All in all, it was a good start for the
tracksters, as they look for even better
performances at the EMU Classic in

The enthusiastic crowd that showed up Sunday after-
noon at Crisler Arena was not disappointed as it watched
the Wolverine grapplers up their season mark to 4-1-1 by
downing Penn State, 17-16, in a match laden with ex-
Most of the excitement came in the decisive
heavyweight match. Michigan was trailing, 16-12, going
into the final match, and they knew that a simple
decision (worth three points) would not be enough to
even earn a tie with the Nittany Lions.
"We knew we needed at least a major decision (worth
four points) to tie," said Coach Dale Bahr after the
meet. Michigan's Steve Fraser, who normally wrestles
at 190, but who was moved to heavyweight-when injuries
befell Eric Klassen and Steve Bennett, proved more
than equal to the challenge. Fraser thoroughly manhan-
dled Penn State's Scott Longcor, whipping him by a
score of 23-5. That margin was good for a five-point
superior decision, which propelled the Wolverines to the
final winning tally.
Due to Michigan's inexperience in the lower weight
classes, Penn State jumped out to a sizeable lead early
in the contest.
At the 118-lb. level, Mike DeAugustino of the Nittany
Lions beat Tom Davids, 6-3. At 126, the Maize and Blue's
Larry Haughn lost to Steve Bass, 9-2. Penn State con-
tinued to stretch out their lead at 134, where Bob Bury
beat Michigan's Bob Siar, 5-1, and at 142, where Bernie
past Penn St.
Fritz narrowly defeated Mark Pearson by a score of 5-4.
These four victories gave the Nittany Lions a comfor-
table 13-0 lead, but it was then that the Blue came to life.
In the 150-lb. weight class, Michigan's John Beljan
gathered in the Wolverine's first win of the afternoon by
defeating Jeff Rosenberger, 6-3. The winning continued
at 158, when Wolverine Nemir Nadhir, who is one of the
toughest wrestlers on the squad, beat out Geoff
Michigan's wrestler at 167, Bill Konovsky, kept his
team on the winning track as he dominated Jeff
Michigan suffered a setback at 177 lbs., when Penn
State's Andy Bingaman proved too much for Patrick
McKay, by a 6-3 margin. Michigan now trailed by seven
points, and Penn State began to feel like they had the
match won. But the Wolverines kept their hopes alive
when Bill Petoskey beat Dan Pfautz, 7-5, in the 190-lb.
It was then that Fraser, who is probably Michigan's
best wrestler, brdght the crowd to their feet in the third
period of the heavyweight match by slaying the gigantic
"The crowd definitely helped Steve on in the match,"
said Coach Bahr. "We had high school wrestlers from all
over the state here today, and they saw a great match."
Indeed it was. Even the Penn State Club of Michigan,
who showed up to cheer on the Nittany Lions, was not
enough to help their team overcome the superlative ef-
fort produced'by the Michigan grapplers.

seconds faster than the gritty senior's,
and the sixth place time was 1:52.20. "It
was an excellent time for this early in
the season," noted Harvey.

jumper par excellence, had a bad day
