Synchros finish second to OSU

Buckeyes take final
event to win by two

In what may have been its-last home
meet as a varsity team, the Michigan
synchronized swim team finished
second, barely edged by national
powerhouse Ohio State, 106 to 104. The
meet, the Univerity of Michigan Syn-
chronized Swimming Regional Cham-
pionships, drew one hundred fans to
Margaret Bell Pool and featured the
ve Big Ten schools that have teams.
orthwestern, Michigan State, and
Iowa ended-up well behind the second-
place Wolverines, posting scores of
61.5, 31.0, and 23 points respectively.
The Buckeyes, the nation's
top-ranked team, were led
by national team members Karen and
Sara Josephson and Karen Callaghan,
who between them captured first place
in the senior figures; duet, and trio
events. Michigan was leading the meet
ith only one event remaining, the

team routine, thanks in large part to
first-place finishes by Jill Schultz in the
novice figures and Tracy Rehbein in the
junior figures, and a second-place per-
formance by the trio of Betsy Neira,
Cathleen O'Brien, and Erin
O'Shaughnessy. But first - and third-
place finishes' by Ohio State in the team
routine clinched the meet.
THE WOLVERINES' two point loss
to Ohio State is the most recent entry in
a series of close contests between the
two schools. "We can beat them; we're
getting closer and closer," said
Michigan assistant coach Laura
LaCursia. "We have the best chance to
beat them this year that we've ever
had. But to beat them, everything
would have to fall into place."
The meet's most obvious "fall" in-
volved Wolverine Coach Joyce Lin-
deman, who was wading in the pool as
the fans left the stands. After the Ohio

State team presented Lindeman with a
cake for "all the support she's given the
sport," the Blue swimmers pushed her
into the water. "No one in this sport has
worked harder for it and promoted it
more than Joyce L indeman," said
Buckeye Coach Mary Jo Ruggieri.
RUGGIERI had nothing but praise
and sympathy for the Michigan team
and nothing but contempt for the
athletic department which she blames
for revoking its varsity status. "I've
travelled with (the Michigan) team and
its coach and they're one of the most
well-respected in the world. They
represent the University, its students,
and alumni with pizzazz all over the
world. And I think it's a crime that the
athletic department doesn't have the
foresight to invest in this program. I
think the rule the athletic department
used to revoke the varsity status (since
No NCAA or Big Ten championship is
held in a sport, it cannot be considered
a varsity sport) is baloney. If an
athletic department wants to cut a
sport they can think of a rule."
Despite yesterday's post-meet
ceremonies, thescontestsdid not mark
the end of thetWolverine season, neither
did it signify the end of the team (it will

continue as a club sport). Further-
more, it wasn't the last of Lindeman's
coaching career as she will continue to
coach the club. The team's final meet
of this season wil be the AIAW Cham-
pionships at Columbus in two weeks.
While litigation is still pending that
could affect the synchro's non-varsity
future, a Michigan varsity team and the
scholarships that go with it is the
remotest of possibilities. Ruggieri con-
cluded: "What the athletic department
has done is condemn (the Michigan)
team to mediocrity."

Special to the Daily
DETROIT - It was either a case of
missed Michigan Tech opportunities or
another stellar performance by
Michigan State goalie Ron Scott.
In any event, the Spartans held on a
for a 3-2 victory over the Huskies in
their semi-final game of the Central
WCollegiate Hockey Association (CCHA)
playoffs last night before a crowd of
9,821 at Joe Louis Arena.
THE HUSKIES never lead in the con-
test and despite a 13-5 Tech shot advan-
tage in the first period, the Huskies suf-
fered an early 2-goal deficit.
Newell Brown and Mark Hamway
scored in the first period and Brown
netted the game winner in the third.
Mike Nepi and Ron Zuke tallied for
,Despite early pressure on Scott,
Brown scored on a slap shot from the top
of the right circle after an apparent of-
fsides was not called. Todd Gardiner
and Ken Leiter assisted on the 1:40
- HAMWAY capitalized at 18:06 on a
breakaway to give the Spartans a 2-0
Nepi brought the Huskies to within

one goal on a nifty backhander from in
close at 9:58 of the second period.
However, Brown came back at 4:12
of the final stanza to pad the Spartan
lead. The shot came from goalie Tom
Allen's left, and the puck went right
through the crease and by Allen's right
leg into the far corner of the net.
ZUKE BROUGHT the battle back to a
1-goal affair at 11:20. He took a
rebound, shot at Scott and somehow the
puck got under the sophomore netmin-
der and slid slowly over the goal line.
After State got untracked, it outshot
Tech, 36-30. The victory put the Spar-
tans in the championship game against
Notre Dame while the Huskies will take
on Bowling Green in the consolation
game (4:00p.m. today).
Fourth-seeded Notre Dame earned a
spot in the finals by surprising first-
seeded Bowling Green, 8-5.
BOWLING Green took a 3-1 first
period lead on goals by Tim Hack,
George McPhee, Brian Hills after Krt
Bjork had put Notre Dame up 1-0 at
But a 5-goal burst by the Irish in the
second stanza put them up for good.
Dave Poulin spearheaded the Notre
Dame effort, netting two goals while


Jeff Logan, Adam Parsons and Mark
Doman added one apiece.
Despite a valiant Bowling Green ef-
fort at the very end, Notre Dame's Bill
Rothstein scored a short handed, empty
net goal with only 32 seconds left to
propel the Irish into the championship
game (7:00p.m. tonight).
