It sincerely was a merry Christ-
mas vacation for Joe McFarland as
he traveled to Arlington Heights, Ill.
with the rest of the Michigan
wrestling team to compete in the
1982 Midlands Tournament. Mc-
Farland placed first in the tour-
nament at 126 pounds.
Not since 1974, when Jim Brown
won at the 118-pound weight class,
has a Michigan wrestler done so well
at this prestigious tournament which
attracts wrestlers from every cor-
ner of the United States, ranging in
age from 18 to 30, and is seen by
many as the. springboard to the
TO WIN the championship, Mc-
Farland had to beat some rather
stiff competition. In the first round,'
McFarland beat a wrestler from
Kentucky by scoring a quick ten
points which ends a tournament
In the quarter-finals, McFarland
beat Oklahoma State's Mark Perry,
The most important victory for
McFarland came in the semi-finals
against Iowa's Barry Davis, 6-2.
Last year Davis, who compiled a 42-
1 record, was the NCAA champion at
118 pounds. Davis' only loss last year
came against none other than Mc-
Farland in the, you guessed it,
Midlands Tournament, by a score of
4-1. Davis has beaten McFarland
every other time they have met.

before (McFarland) is the strongest 126-
pounder I have ever wrestled. One
faced time he hit me (on the side of the
Gene head) and did it so hard that I had to
look across the mat to see if he
knocked my head off."
ACCORDING to Assistant Coach
Joe Wells, "This is a good win for
Joe because he has suffered some
minor discomfort this season due to
a back injury he incurred from
weight lifting. Joe has never looked
for excuses and always displays
strong determination, and this is
possibly one reason for his success."
McFarland wrestled as an in-
dependent in the tournament and
will most likely be red-shirted this
No one else from Michigan placed
in the tournament. However, one
other bright spot was the perfor-
mance of Rob Rechsteiner.
Rechsteiner had a 4-2 record in the
tournament and was beaten by only
the two top seeds in the tournament.
His. most impressive victory came
over Rob Chamberlain, who is af-
filiated with the Hawkeye wrestling
club. Chamberlain used to be one of
the finest heavyweights in the Big
Ten and outweighed Rechsteiner,
280 to 210 pounds.
SAID BAHR of the entire team's
performance, "I am satisfied with
the way our kids wrestled at the
Midlands. They were mentally
prepared and did a good job against
some outstanding competition."
In other wrestling news over the
Christmas break, Tim Fagan was
elected team captain. Fagan is a
local boy from Huron High School
and is a senior wrestling at 158
Another development is that
Michigan has acquired 177-pound
Bill Elbin from California, where he
attended Sequoyas Junior College.
Tonight the team travels to Ohio
State to take part in a quadrangle
meet pitting Michigan against
teams from Ohio State, Ohio Univer-
sity, and Nevada-Las Vegas.
If Michigan can pull out some vic-
tories in the lower weights they
could expect to do very well.

It will be a battle for ninth place tonight at Yost Ice
Arena as the Michigan Wolverines play host to
Illinois-Chicago. Both the Wolverines and the Flames
along with Lake Superior State share the not-too-
impressive ninth slot in the Central Collegiate
Hockey Association standings.
Although the Wolverines would rather be further
ahead in the race right now, it is still a very impor-
tant series for them. Michigan head coach John Gior-
dano sees it as a chance to jump off to a good start in
the second half of the season.
"IT IS a significant series," said Giordano. "We
are going on a long road trip after this series. We
want to get off to a good start in the second half."
According to Giordano, ,the Wolverines, coming off
a rather impressive 12-3 win over Notre Dame, are
starting to show signs of improvement.
"I think we're improving," said Giordano. "We're
setting up a settled lineup now and that is giving us
IN THE Illinois-Chicago series, Giordano will
still make a few adjustments. Senior co-captain Ted
Speers will be moving back to his usual forward
position. Giordano put Speers on defense earlier in
the season in an attempt to add some maturity and
stability to the inexperienced blue-liners.
"We don't think he has been the answer back
there," said Giordano. "He was not really ac-
customed to the position and we are going to have to
give our defense experience at some time or other.
They have twenty games under their belt now, so
they should be able to handle it:"
The Flames are coming off a four-week break in
action. The last time Illinois-Chicago played, it drop-
ped a two-game series to Western Michigan, 6-0 and
"WE EXPECT a different kind of a game," said
Giordano. "They are more of a skating team. We feel
we're ready for them. I think we've prepared well for
One asset for the Flames in the series is senior net-
minder Ricn Blakey. The junior from Halifax, Nova
Scotia has more saves than any other goalie in the
CCHA, garnering 471 in league play and 611 overall.
Blakey, however, is eleventh in the CCHA in saves
percentage at .882, .885 oyerall.
The Flames' scoring attack should be led by
freshman left wing Ken Steves and sophomore Joe
Jackman. Jackman led the Flames in scoring last
Tonight's game with Illinois-Chicago starts at 7:30
p.m. Tickets are available at the door or at the ticket
office at the corner of State St. and Hoover during
business hours. Student tickets cost $2.00. WJJX (650
AM) will broadcast both games of the series begin-
ning at 7:30 p.m. each night.

The season starts tonight and the
team is hot.
With a two game winning streak on
the line, the Wolverines women's
basketball team opens its initial Big
Ten schedule at Crisler Arena against
the Northwestern Wildcats.

MICHIGAN, 2-8 on the season, is
coming off a 68-63 victory over Detroit
Monday night at Calihan Hall.
The Wolverines are led by sophomore
Peg Harte, who is averaging a team-
high 22.9 points per game this season,
including 31 against Michigan State in
the Grand Rapids Press Tourney on
Nov. 27. Her 7.1 rebounds per game
also leads the team.
Freshmen Orethia Lilly and Wendy
Bradetich are also making a large con-
tribution, averaging 12.9 and 9.4 points,
and 5.0 and 5.5 rebounds per game,
respectively. Junior Lori Gnatkowski
and sophomore Diana Wiley are also
expected to start for the Wolverines.
NORTHWESTERN is led by 6-0
sophomore Anucha Browne with a 19.6
points per game average. Tracie
Diemer, a 6-4 soph, sparks the team off
the bench with a 10.7 average.
The Wildcats are 4-5 this season and
have yet to play a home game. North-
western recently won the LaSalle
Classic with a victory over 16th-ranked
Penn State. Annette Lynch is in her
third season as head coach of the 'Cats.
This is the first year the Big Ten has
had a schedule for women's basketball,
which includes home and home series
with all conference teams.
THE GAMES will be played on
Friday nights and Sunday afternoons
against the same school as the men
played the previous day, except at the
other site. For example, last night the
Michigan men played at Northwestern,
so tonight the Wildcat women's team
visits Crisler Arena.
Why on Friday and Sunday? Because
the conference coaches, including
Michigan's Gloria Soluk, hope to draw
fans "on our own" and prove that
women's athletics are capable of sur-
viving, despite the apparent athletic
department bias toward men first.
But will the fans come out and sup-
port Big Ten women's basketball? Par-
ticularly in this initial season? We
should know the answer by this spring.
