The battle for conference supremacy
was staged last weekend at Bowling
Green and the host Falcons left no
question that they are the leading force
in the Central Collegiate Hockey
Association after sweeping second-
place Michigan State, 6-4 and 4-2.
The wins left Bowling Green with a
conference record of 15-2-1 and a big
five point bulge over the Spartans.

The Spartans scored the first goal in
each of the contests but couldn't hold

12 previous games this season and had
won every time. Falcon goalie Wayne

as he made 31 saves in game two and at

Michigan gymnasts piled up impressive individual
statistics last weekend at the Big Ten Invitational in
East Lansing. Michigan State, Wisconsin, Western
Michigan, and Eastern Michigan sent competitors to
the individual competition, No team scores were
Wolverine gymnasts captured first place in four of
the six events, and placed at least two in the top five
in every event.
CAPTAIN MILAN Stanovich placed first in
vaulting with a score of 9.8 and first in all-around
competition, with 109.10. That total was more than
three points higher than the 106.0 he needed to qualify
for the U.S. Gymnastics Federation Championships.
Top finishers in that competition will represent the
U.S. in international competition.
Nevin Hedlund topped the field on the pommel hor-
se with 9.5. Kevin and Mike McKee placed first and
second in floor exercises with 9.5 and 9.4 respectively.
On rings, Rick Kaufmann took first place honors
with a 9.6.
Although Wolverine gymnasts have done very well
all season in individual competition, a lack of depth
has consistently hurt the team score.
COACH LOKEN thinks that problem may be
alleviated by the team's newest addition, freshman
Gavin Meyerowitz of South Africa. Meyerowitz is a
first term engineering student who came to the
United States, at least in part, because the gym-
nastics competition is much better here than in South
Africa. He scored 53.50 in all-around competition last
weekend. "It was a great happening when he joined
us in mid-season," said Loken.. "Gavin will partially
fill the shoes of Merrick Horn." Horn is injured and
out for the season.
With the addition of Meyerowitz, Loken thinks the
team will "be much more competitive against the
national powers.. .
He'll get a chance to try out that hypothesis this
Saturday as Michigan takes on the Gophers of Min-
nesota, who finished eighth in the NCAA's last year.
Wrestlers win two of three
Close may count in horseshoes, and even in
wrestling sometimes, but close wasn't enough for the
Michigan wrestling team last Friday.
While the matmen won their dual meets against
Ohio University and University of Nevada, Las
Vegas, they fell slightly short in their first conference
dual meet against Ohio State.
MICHIGAN GRAPPLERS did "have some
especially outstanding duels," according to head
coach Dale Bahr, but three of these ended in Buckeye
Kirk Trost, wrestling at 190 pounds, lost a 10-6
decision to OSU's Eric Neilly. Trost led until late ir
the third round when he tried a takedown and insteaa
suffered the reversal, which cost him the match.
Mike Garabedian, 126 pounds, and Scott
Rechsteiner, 167 pounds, also fell in the final round,
losing 9-7 and 3-2 respectively.
POSTING VICTORIES over OSU were Greg
Wright, Bill Goodill, Tim Fagan, and Rob
Goodill, 142 pounds, had to overcome adversity as
well as his opponent. Despite a badly sprained ankle
in practice Thursday, Goodill came back Friday to
win an 8-4 decision over OSU's Greg Delong.
"He gave a gutsy performance," said Bahr. "He
did a good job just wrestling for us."
Tankers compete in international meet
Eighteen countries, 17 U.S. colleges, and national
greats such as Rowdy Gaines, marked the stiff com-
petition six members of the Michigan men s swim
team faced in the U.S.S. International Meet at IndiaA
apolis last weekend.
Benoit Clement continued to prove himself a
va ua ble member of the tankers. The freshman's
performance included a third place finish in the con-
solation final of the 400 meter freestyle (3:55.30),
seventh in the 80 meter freestyle (8:05.64) and in the
1500 meter freestyle, coning in at 15:44.85.
WOLVERINE captain and lone senior Bruce
Gemmell captured tenth place in the 200 meter
backstroke with a time of 2:46.32.
Lance Schroeder, another promising freshman,
came in tenth in the men's 200 meter butterfly.
Antonio Cerezo had a strong swim in the 400 meter
IM when he came in second in the consolation finals
THE WOLVERINES combined efforts also led to
a good showing in the relay events finishing seventh in
the 800 meter freestyle relay. Gemmel, Cerezo,
Schroeder, and Mark Noetzel stopped the clock at
3:52.70 for ninth place in the 400 meter medly relay.
Coach Jon Urbanchek was pleased with the way his
swimmers performed against international com-
petition, the strongest of which included East Ger-
many, Sweden, and Norway.
" It was an improvement over Canada," said Ur-
banchek, referring to the Canada Cup held in Toronto
December 4-6 where Michigan last faced swimmers
from foreign teams. "Now we're ready to face
Wisconsin this Thursday. They are a very good team
and we need to be strong to win."
