word.

THE BIGGEST problem defensively last sea
was the defensive front line, which was decimate

Carraway (6-3, 245) who suffered from various ai
injuries. Carraway's performance will have a la
effect on Michigan's over-all defense.
"In order for our defensive line to be exceptio

91K Weekg 'Diged
MINI-SOCCER
Rowdies 13, Chariots 5: In an unprecedented accomplishment, the
Rowdies appear in the IM Digest for the second consecutive week. This week
it was the hapless Chariots that succumbed to the Rowdies, 13-5. The
reigning indoor and outdoor soccer champions were led to victory by Steve
Paul's five goals giving him a spectacular total of 20 goals in three games.
Mark Ohlhaver also tallied five scores for the victors. The Rowdies now take
their three-year winning streak into the playoffs, starting next week.
Sname 5, Inteflex 4: With no substitutes, the Sname five held the floor the
entire game and overcame an early deficit to defeat Inteflex, 5-4, as the
Sname ironmen upped their record to 2-1. Defending 'B' champions in out-
door soccer, Sname was led by superstars Panos Zachariadis with two goals
and Pakis Malapetsas who added one. The team is a collection of naval ar-
chitecture department associates. Said team captain Miles Zebb, "They (In-
teflex) were a bunch of undergrads and we are guys in our 20s, plus we didn't
have any subs. So we had a hard time keeping up with them. We had to earn
our goals."
VOLLEYBALL
The Oilmen 2, Midshipmen 0: Oilmen captain Neil Braunsdorf put it best
when he stated, "This was a dull-game, the best thing about it was the
referee." Nonetheless the win enabled the Oilmen to even their record to 1-1.
The Petroleum enthusiasts not only beat the Navy team badly, they did it
outnumbered four to one.
"The Navy guys had about 25 people. They had good players only they kept
rotating bad players in," said Braunsdorf. "I attribute our victory to Kevin
Givens' serving and (the play of) Marc Franke, who hit the ball out of boun-
ds a lot for us." The Oilmen obtained their name from the fact that many of
them are geology majors who got jobs with oil companies.
Nads 2, Powerhouse '810: The undefeated Nads came back twice to defeat
Powerhouse '81, 15-10, 15-12. Nads' captain Derek Wong explained, "Lee
Fuiman and Gary Ciarelli hit the ball hard and setters Kevin Movins and
myself got the job done. But we all played equally well and no one really
stood out." The Nad's now boast an impressive 3-0 record.
Brown's Bums 2, ECC Ease 1: In the only three game volleyball match in
this week's Digest Brown's Bums volleyed their way past ECC Ease 15-0, 8-
15, 15-2. Captain of Brown's Bums, Tom Adams said, "This is the first year
most of these guys have played and I am really pleased about how we played
as a team, we didn't go for a lot of individual shots." Brian Hirami was a
leading force in the game with his talented setting. Brown's Bums now sport
a balanced record of 1-1.
Awesome Giants 2, Ham San 0: There are intramural athletes on this
campus, and then there are guys who like to play volleyball. Tom Adams is
one such individual as he captains both the Awesome Giants and Brown's
Bums of the independept league. Playing with only five players Sunday, the
Giants still bested Ham San, 2-0. The undefeated Awesomes are in third
place in the overall co-rec standings.
The IM Digest relates briefly the activities of the Michigan in-
tramural program during the previous week. This week's information
was compiled by Daily sports writer Mike McGraw.

FIVE WOLVERINES QUALIFY:

McKee leads tumblers to

NCAAs

By JESSE BARKIN
Levin McKee has been rated the top
flopr exercise performer in the Mideast
for the second straight year and heads
the list of five Michigan gymnasts who
have qualified for the NCAA champion-
ships, April 1-3 at Nebraska.
:Along with McKee, Rick Kaufmann,
Milan Stanovich, Nevin Hedlund, and
Dave Miller will also make the trip to
Lincoln after each was selected for at-
large berths' in the national champion-
ships.
ALTHOUGH the Wolverines were not
selected for the team championships,
coach New Loken noted that Michigan
will be well represented, "Blue shirts
will be very prominent in Nebraska
country," he said. "I'm very proud of
the five who have been selected." He
added that the total of five selections
was more than any other school in the
Mideast which did not qualify.
Five athletes from each event were
chosen from the four separate regions
in the country as at-large selections,
and will compete along with the com-
petitors from the 10 schools chosen for
the team championships. The selec-
tions were based on the averages of the
athlete's five best scores during the
season, only two of which could be at
home.
McKee is the only Michican qualifier
from last year and will bring a 9.66
average on the floor exercise into the
meet. Kaufmann qualified on the still
ring with a 9.54 average, and Stanovich
was selected on the vault due to his 9.68
average.
Hedlund, Michigan's top all-
arounder, averaged 9.43 on the pommel
horse, while Miller rounded out the
diverse Wolverine squad as he qualified
on the parallel bars with a 9.30 score.
Loken was impressed with the
qualifiers, "this represents excellency
throughout the season. You can't get
lucky. You have to keep banging away,
and continually excel."
