TUMBLERS IN CHAMPAIGN:

Regional race wid oe

By DAN CONLIN
Special to the Daily
CHAMPAIGN-Kenney Gymnasium
on the Illinois campus must have been
built by the same person who created
the University's Natural Science
Building. Both buildings breed con-
fusion, with their winding maze of tun-
nels, and the dungeon-like feeling of the
rickety old stairwells.
And no one here arrived by the same
door. That is, everyone has a different
view of this weekend's women's
regional gymnastics competition.
"COMING INTO this regional, 16
teams had an average score between
134 and 135," said Eastern Michigan
coach Al David, "so anybody could
win."
But top-seeded Southern Illinois'
coach Herb Vogel doesn't agree.
"One point is women's gymnastics is
the difference between heaven and
hell," said Vogel. "If you do poorly at
the beginning, there are just not enough
events to catch up.
"WE HAVE THE top seed and our
qualifying score is six points better
than second-seeded Michigan State,"
he added.

"The meet will come down to Southern
Illinois, maybe Illinois, and of course
us," said Michigan State's Bonnie Ellis,
who won the state all-around cham-
pionship in February.
But Michigan sophomore Lisa Uttal
took up her team's case. "We definitely
have the potential to place in the top
two. We've beaten three of the four
teams ahead of us. If we hit we could,
surprise Michigan State."
OHIO STATE coach Larry Cox said
Donna Silber-his junior standout-will
capture the all-around for the third
straight year. His prediction:
"Southern Illinois and Michigan State
will definitely be in the top three."
The seeding of teams pleased
Michigan coach Sheri Hyatt, as her
team was seeded fifth. The first
session-usually judged the har-
dest-contains Wisconsin, Indiana,
Chicago Circle and Eastern Michigan.
The Wolverines compete in the second
session with Bowling Green and Kent
State.
Southern Illinois, Michigan State,
Illinois, and Ohio State all compete in
the final session which is always judged
a little more leniently.

JUDGING HAS become a worry for
the top-seeded teams in this regional ,
because second and third place scores
determine who receives the 11 wild-
card bids to the national championsips,
in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
"The judging in this region is
ridiculous," said Ohio State coach Cox.
"In comparison to the other regions this
judging is much tougher."
The concern about the judging has
been a season-long ordeal for Michigan
coach Hyatt. And Vogel, the coach of
Southern Illinois, feels stingy scoring
this weekend could fatally wound any
wild-card teams from this region. "If
our second and third place teams get
wild-card bids, their scores will
probably be so low that they are placed
in the very first session of the meet."
VOGEL EXPLAINED the disadvan-
tages of the first session, "No judge will
ever give high scores to the first sessionO
and not leave room for higher scores to
later gymnasts. If you are in the first
session, you're dead."
All the coaches are worrying about
the judging and this provides extra in-
centive to be the teams that comes out
on top for the automatic bid to the
nationals.
