Beckwith leads

upstart tumblers

to NCAA
By JESSE BARKIN
The women's gymnastics team will
be one of 10 teams vying for the NCAA
national championships, after the
Wolverines placed first in the Mideast
regionals last weekend at Illinois-
Chicago Circle.
Sophomore Kathy Beckwith won the
individual all-around title with a score
of 35.55 and freshmen Christy Schwartz
and Dayna Samuelson placed eighth
and10th, respectively.
MICHIGAN, IN its first year com-
peting in the NCAA, went into the meet
seeded third and was unranked
nationally, but came away with the
NCAA bid and a trip to Salt Lake City
March 27-28, by scoring a 139.10 to out-
point a strong seven-team field which
included Chicago Circle (138.45),
Louisville (138.10), and Michigan State
(137.00).

AIAW regionals where they are seeded
first. Michigan is eligible for both
championships as it is undergoing a
three-year transfer from the AIAW to
the NCAA.
"IT'S GOING TO be kind of tough,"
the third-year coach said. "I can't say
that we're totally happy to be seeded
first. There's going to be a lot of added
pressure. When you're ranked number
one coming in, everyone is out to get
you."
The NCAAs the following week,
though, will be an even tougher task for
the Wolverines. Many of the teams
have been averaging scores in the mid-
140s and Hyatt said Utah recently not-
ched a 150 score. Michigan's best this
season was its 140.95 to clinch the Big
Ten championships last month.
"We'll go to nationals,"Hyatt said,
"not just to be there . . . but the other
teams are just too good." She added
that no matter what the showing, the
Wolverines will be among the ten best
in the nation.
IN THE NCAA regionals, the
Wolverines went into their final event,

the uneven parallel bars, in second
place behind Chicago-Circle and the
team came through to win the meet
scoring a 34.85. Beckwith led the way
with a 9.05 and Schwartz, Big Ten run-
ner-up on the bars, added an 8.85.
Beckwith was impressed with the
win. "It was really exciting," she said.
"Our assistant coach (Jim Varilek)
said we can win the meet 'if you all hit
on the event.' And we did."
Previously, the Wolverines made the
jump from third to second on the vault,
where the team scored a meet best
35.75. Samuelson recorded a 9.1 to place
second in the event. Sophomore Nancy
Papows added an 8.95 while Beckwith
scored an 8.90. Hyatt said that it was
the "super vault" which put the team in
position for the win.
IN THE FLOOR exercise, Beckwith
took high Michigan honors with an 8.85,
and Samuelson tallied 8.8. Beckwith
also led the team on the balance beam
with an 8.65. Junior Angela Deaver
scored an 8.45 for the Wolverines.
Beckwith, the only Michigan gym-
nast who went to NCAAs last season, in
fact the only one ever to qualify for
nationals in the team's seven year
history, concurred with Hyatt's view
that the team has little chance in
reaching the top three places, but said
it will not be a wasted trip. "It should be
exciting, and it will be good experience
for the whole team to go. Last year I
didn't have the team behind me and I
noticed the lack of moral support."

MSU icers win, playoffs,

By MARTHA CRALL
Ron Scott has been Michigan State's savior all season long.
The most recent feats of the sophomore Spartan goalie in-
clude earning All-American honors and Most Valuable
Player accolades in the Central Collegiate Hockey
Association (CCHA) playoffs held over the weekend at Joe
Louis Arena.
THE GUELPH, Ontario native saved 29 shots in State's 3-2
victory over Michigan Tech in the semi-finals and wrapped
up the 4-1 Spartan championship win with a stellar 27-save
performance against Notre Dame on Sunday.
All-tournament defenseman Ken Leiter assisted on three of
the four first-period goals in the championship game and
Tom Anastos netted the game-winner. Michigan State totally
dominated the first period of action, outshooting the Irish, 22-
4.
Todd Gardiner got the Spartans started with only his
second goal of the season, followed by Anastos' power-play
score. Mark Hamway, an all-tournament forward, and Nigel
Thomas tallied only 34 seconds apart seven minutes later to
close the door on Notre Dame.

Bowling Green (27-12-2), the regular-season CCHA cham-
pions, earned the fourth and final seed for the West. The
Falcons narrowly defeated Tech, 2-1, in the consolation game
Sunday afternoon. After a 1-1 tie held up for over 40 minutes,
all-tournament forward George McPhee scored the game-
winner at 15:02 of the final period.
Huskies right winger Jeff Wylie put them on the board first
in the game at 12:39 of the first period, but the 1-0 lead was
shortlived. At 14:42 Brian MacLellan scored on a partial
breakaway against freshman Tech goalie, Tom Allen to tie
the contest.
Bowling Green was surprised by Notre Dame in-its semi-
final game, an 8-5 shootout on Saturday. The Falcons took a 3-
1 first-period lead, but a five-goal burst in the second, in-
cluding two scores by Dave Poulin, sealed Bowling Green's
doom.
OTHER ALL-tournament selections included defensemarI
Brian MacLellan of Bowling Green and forward Dave Poulin
of Notre Dame.
The seedings in the East (from one to four) are Nor:,
theastern, New Hampshire, Clarkson and Harvard. The one.
and two seeded teams in the east host the three and four
seeded teams from the west and vice-versa. Therefore, Har-
vard travels to Wisconsin and Clarkson to North Dakota,
while New Hampshire will host Michigan State and Nor-
theastern will entertain Bowling Green.
The four winners of the two-game, total goals series will
advance to the NCAA finals in Providence, R.I. on March 25
27.
Yesterday the All-American teams were also named by the
American Hockey Coaches Association. The West team in-
cluded Scott in goal, MacLellan and Bruce Driver from
Wisconsin in the defense spots and forwards John Newberry
of Wisconsin, Brian Hills from Bowling Green and CCHA all-
time leading scorer McPhee.
-The East team consisted of goalie Brian Hayward of Cor-
nell, rearguards Chris Renaud from Colgate and Mark Fusco
of Harvard, and forwards Steve Cruickshank of Clarkson,
Kirk McCaskall from Vermont and Andy Brickley of New
Hampshire. -A"

ALTHOUGH the Irish out-shot
State, 24-13, the rest of the way,
only a dingle goal by Bill
Rothstein at 6:00 of the second
stanza spoiled Scott's shutout.
The' CCHA championship vic-
tory earned the Spartans an
automatic berth in the NCAA
regionals, which begin this
weekend. However, in the four-
team seedings, two Western
Collegiate Hockey Association
(WCHA), Wisconsin, the playoff
champion, and North Dakota, the
regular season champ, were
seeded first and second, thus
receivinghome-ice advantage.
