Division 'A' competition. Three Jammers topped the 10-point mark, and T.
Lundfeld took game honors with 19 points.
All nine Ex-Patriots helped tame The Policy Animals as every team

weekend as the bombed The Gunners, 54-32. Jet team captain Bob Blibuer
piloted the win with 18 points.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon scored two quick baskets in the last minute of its

Eric Grupe put in a layup with less than a minute left to give Lambda Chi
Alpha a 27-23 victory over Alpha Tau Omega. Lambda Chi spokesman Tom
Fry commented, "It was a tight defensive struggle all the way. The thing
that was the key in the victory was our working the ball inside well."
In Fraternity 'B' action, Kappa Alpha Psi.was in top form defeating Delta
Kappa Epsilon, 51-21. The Kappas, who are the defending champions, were
led by Todd Shurk who poured in 18 points. Delta Alpha Epsilon is only in its

Irish consider dropping hockey
By CHUCK JAFFE
The University of Notre Dame is con-
sidering discontinuing its ice hockey
program, according to officials from its
athletic department. The decision,
which would remove the sport from
NCAA Division I and lower it to a club
status, could become effective at the
end of the current Central Collegiate
Hockey Association season.
Athletic department estimates show
that dropping the hockey team, curren-
tly tied for last place in the CCHA, will
save over $200,000 and allow other non-
revenue producing athletic teams to
continue competing. Presently, the
hockey team's future is being decided
by Notre Dame's Board in Control of In-
tercollegiate Athletics, which hopes to
reach a final decision in early
"WE'RE IN THE process of re-
evaluating the whole system and we're
looking at it from an economic stan-
dpoint," said Colonel Jack Stephens,
Notre Dame's Associate Athletic Direc-
tor. "We've been taking a hard look at
whether we can continue playing the
sport of hockey. It's a little nebulous
right now, but it appears that the
future of the sport here is in jeopardy."
If Notre Dame decides to discontinue
the program, the 20 players currently
on scholarship would be allowed to
complete their education at the school,
or would be allowed to transfer to, and
immediately play for, another Division
"I'd say we have to go to a club
status," Stephens said. "Then the boys
that still have eligibility can play
elsewhere immediate y, without having
to sit out a year because of their tran-
James Ruehl CCHA commissioner
said that the league was making no
procedural plans to follow if the Irish
leave the conference. Instead, the
decision, he said, is up to the athletic
directors of the association's schools.
"We'll just have to wait and see,"
Ruehl said. "Two years ago they went
through the same thing, so we will have
to wait for the decision. We haven't
discussed what the league will do, but
certainly, playing with only 11 teams or
finding a replacement are possibilities.
We won't decide until the athletic direc-
tors meet in April."
pick up first
By JOHN TAYER
Snapping a two-match losing streak and snagging its first
victory on a recent four-match road trip, the Michigan
wrestling team soundly defeated the Purdue Boilermakers,
26-7, last Sunday.
Aiding the winning effort were several victories in the
lower weight classes. After a 5-2 loss by Michigan's Jamie
McNaughton at 118 pounds, Michigan upped the winning
tempo to capture victories in the next three weight classes.
AT 126 POUNDS, Mike GerGarabedian won 10-5 over Pur-
due's John Stumph. At 134 pounds, Greg Wright defeated Don
Stuckly by a 6-4 margin. Mark Pearson picked up a major
decision at 142 pounds winning an 11-3 match over Derek
At 150 pounds, Purdue picked up its last victory of the mat-
ch with Frank Patacsil getting a major 15-6 decision over Bill
The rest of the match was all Michigan. Tim Fagan
defeated Peter Feldmier, 5-4, to win his eighth consecutive
match at 158 pounds. Two of Feldmier's four points came on
IN THE HIGHLIGHT match of the meet, Scott Rechsteiner
came from behind in the waning seconds of his 167-pound
match to take a 12-11 victory over Purdue's Jeff Seeger. With
30 seconds to go in the match, Rechsteiner was down 11-8, but
got an escape for one point and followed 15 seconds later with
a two-point take down. Riding out the rest of the period for
the one advantage point, Rechsteiner was able to capture the
Michigan head coach Dale Bahr said he was very pleased
with Scott's performance. "He came from behind and fought
hard to get those-final few points which made the difference
between winning and losing," said Bahr.
At 170 pounds, Bill Elbin picked up a major decision over
Bob Picchiotti, 8-0.
"I WAS VERY pleased with Bill Elbin's victory," said
Bahr, "because it gave him the confidence he needs in ad-
justing to the collegiate level." Elbin is a junior college tran-
Putting in a strong performance at 190 pounds, Kirk Trost
took a 13-7 victory over Kurt Angell. Trost has been hot thus
far on the road trip, winning his last three matches. "Trost is
wrestling as good as ever," said Bahr.
Rounding out the scoring for the Wolverines at the
heavyweight position was Rob Rechsteiner, who won 7-2 over
Dave Cravens. The victory upped Rechsteiner's record to 24-
"WE WRESTLED much better as a team overall against4
Purdue than we did in our last two matches versus Indiana
and Illinois," said Bahr. "This was definitely our best match

Women gymnasts trip up
Falling off a gymnastic apparatus
Plagued by spills, the Michigan's
score suffered the worst injury this
weekend as the women's gymnastic
team was defeated by Illinois, 171.9-
168.2. Michigan's problems staying on
the apparatus cost the squad six points
and forced its scores to lag behind the
Illini in the uneven bars, balance beam,
and floor exercise.
COACH SHERI Hyatt attributed the
team's defeat to the high degree of dif-
ficulty in the tricks. "We need to be a
little more consistent," she said.
There were, however, some in-
dividual triumphs. Kathy Beckwith and
Angela Deaver took first and third
places respectively on the balance
beam. In addition, Christy Schwartz
and Beckwith tied for the second spot
on the uneven bars.
The Wolverines did manage to sur-
pass Illinois in the vault. Beckwith
again seized first place and clinched
her position as the first all-around
gymnast at the meet. Also vaulting ef-
fectively was Schwartz, who tied for
second, and Dayna Samuelson who
nabbed fourth. - Paula Schipper 4

victory over the Michigan women's
basketball team Sunday at Crisler
Denise Jackson and Rachelle Bostic
led the way for the Hoosiers (7-7, 4-1 in

points and 35 rebounds. They were
joined in double figures by 'Julie

to can four-of-five shots en route to 12
points and five rebounds.
"They were awesome," said
Michigan coach Gloria Soluk. "We
could stop the first shot, bututhey kept
on getting the offensive rebounds and
making the second shot."
MICHIGAN (3-13, 1-5) had three'
players in double figures as well. Lori
Gnatkowski and Orethia Lilly, the star-
ting backcourt tandem, scored 13 and 22
points respectively. Reserve center
Sandy Svoboda, hit for 12 points and
pulled down 13 caroms. Both Lilly's
and Svoboda's outputs were career
highs for the freshmen.
