Nadhir's work

By DAN NEWMAN
For a 158 pounder, Nemir Nadhir is
not very big. Nor is he very tall or in-
timidating to most opponents. In fact,
until this year, Nadhir wasn't even a
consistent wrestler.
But, and perhaps most importantly,
he is a determined competitor whose
nine years of diligence finally seems to
be paying off.
"Nemir is a real hard worker, if not
the hardest worker on the team," said
Joe McFarland, an All-American at
118-pounds. "He's always trying to im-
prove himself and it shows this year
because he's beaten a lot of tough kids
in his weight class."
"PHYSICALLY I'm not as dominant
as most people in my weight class,"
Nadhir noted. "But I'm pretty good on
my feet and I-think I make up for it with
my quickness."
Nadhir finished last season with a 16-
10 overall record. He had improved on
that mark this year and, until a recent
rib injury sidelined him, Nadhir was
boasting a 17-4 mark.
"Nemir had become a much more
consistent wrestler," commented
coach Dale Bahr.
NADHIR attributes his success this
year to four years of collegeiate ex-
perience and a lot of hard work. "I've
been around so long," said the senior.
"I've got myself set, and since it's my
last year I'm going all out."
The communications major added
that mental preparation and
"toughness" have also accounted for
this year's success. "I've matured a

Tracksters dump MSU
Special to the Daily
EAST LANSING, - The Michigan
men's track team upended Michigan
State 75-56 yesterday in the first dual
meet of the season for both teams.
Leading the way for Michigan was
sprinter Andrew Bruce, with two vic-
tories.
Bruce ran an NCAA qualifying time
of 6.24 to win the 60 yard dash, and
followed that with a 30.30 time to win the,
300. Mike Shea won the 880 race with a
time of 1.53.96, while Shelby Johnson
won the 60-yard hurdles in 7.58, and
Gerard Donakowski took the 2-mile run
with an 8:49.40 time.
In the field events, Mike Murphy won
the triple jump, Don Chevillet took the
pole vault, Derek Harper won the long
jump, and John Neilsen scored in the
shot put.
Bowie to red-shirt
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - University
of Ientucky center Sam Bowie, one of
the nation's top college basketball
players before a leg fracture sidelined
him last summer, said yesterday he
would not attempt a comeback this
season.
"It looks like the season's gotten
away from me," the 7-foot-1 junior said.
"I don't think there's enough time for
me to come back and get into the flow of
the game."
ALTHOUGH doctors gave him the go-
ahead.last month, Bowie said he had

regained only "about 75 to 80 percent"
of the strength in his left leg and would
have been just a "spot player" in Ken-
tucky's six remaining regular-season
games.
"I couldn't have come in and taken
somebody's starting position," he said.
"It wouldn't have been fair since the
other players have carried us this far."
Still, he said, "In my heart, I want to
play. I sit on the bench and see places
where I could help them."
Bowie, a native of Lebanon, Pa.,
averaged 17.4 points and 9.1 rebounds
last season. He was All-Southeastern
Conference, third team All-America
and named to the 1980 U.S. Olympic team.
BOWIE NOW will be eligible for a fif-
th college season if he spurns the
National Basketball Association's 1983
draft:
Asked if he intended to turn
professional next year, Bowie said,
"'It's hard to answer that question. I
love it around here and it would take an
awful lot of money to take me away
from the university."}
Bowie said he felt no pressure to turn
professional next year "because the
money's always going to be there."
Coach Joe B. Hall predicted the extra
year of eligibility would give Bowie
bargaining power with the pros next
year. But Hall said he didn't try to talk
Bowie into red-shirting.
"I wanted it to be Sam's decision,"
Hall said.
Asked if he sought Bowie's promise to
play a fifth year, Hall said, "No, ab-
solutely not."
Hall said he wasn't surprised by
Bowie's decision, adding that "it was
predictable" after X-rays in early
December.

Gnatkowski
... 22 points
With slightly more than 10 minutes
remaining, Michigan went five minutes
without scoring, and trailed 72-62. But
the Michigan defense shut down the
Chippewas for the next five minutes,
allowing them one more basket, to take
the game, as Harte scored eight of the
team's next 12 points.
Denise Tower and Tracey Creten
scored 21 points each for the Chip-
pewas, while Chris Magnant added 19
off the bench.

Female boxer's hopes floored
MARQUETTE (AP) - A federal
judge yesterday refused to order of-
ficials of the Lansing Golden Gloves
boxing tournament to allow a 19-year-
old Ionia County woman to fight.
In an eight-page opinion released in
Marquette, U.S. Dictrict Judge Wendell
Miles dissolved a temporary
restraining order issued earlier by
Ingham County Circuit Judge
Raymond Hotchkiss.
HOTCHKISS' order had suspended
the flyweight competition in the tour-
nament until after Jill Lafler's attor-
neys had a chance to argue her case in
court.
Miles said there are differences bet-
ween male and female anatomies and
"it is unrealistic to believe that women
could enter the sport of boxing and
operate under the same rules with no
detrimental effects on the safety of the
participants."
Miss Lafler, of Lake Odessa, is a
student at Lansing Community College,
where she trains with the men's boxing
club. She had hoped to fight Charles
Moye of Albion in the flyweight
division, which includes fighters up to
106 pounds.
She tried to register for the com-
petition, which began late last month
but was turned down by tournament of-
ficials because national Golden Gloves
rules do not allow women to box against
men in sanctioned bouts.
