players from the same team were
honored. Nebraska and Brigham
Young each had two players on the
squad. Auburn 'running back Bo
Jackson was the only sophomore to
make the team.
Stefan Humphries was the only other
Michigan player to make the top three
squads, earning second-team guard.
Place-kicker Bob Bergeron, middle
guard Al Sincich and defensive back
Evan Cooper all gained honorable men-
tion.

seventh in.

By SCOTT W. MCKINLAY
The Michigan wrestling team
managed to scrape its way to a strong
seventh place finish out of 42 teams in
the Caesar's Palace Open in Las Vegas
this past Saturday. Although it is only
the tournament's second year,
Oklahoma State already has started a
dynasty by winning it both years, as the
Cowboy's 198 points were more than
enough to overpower second place
finishers Oklahoma, who piled up 115
points.
Latora
... a pleasant surprise
"It's sort of a who's who in college
wrestling for anybody west of
Nebraska," head coach Dale Bahr said.
"With three of the top ten teams in the
country participating, it is an excellent
:chance for our kids to get a look at some
:of the kids we wouldn't normally see, at
least not until the NCAA's."
MICHIGAN FINISHED with 54 poin-
ts, enough to joust Big Ten opponents
Wisconsin and Minnesota, who finished
well behind the Wolverines.

mances from several team members,
including freshmen Tony Latora in the
142 pound division. Latora showed
great intensity and desire in finishing
sixth out of 40 wrestlers in his weight
class. "That's as hard as we've seen
him wrestle this season," Bahr said.
Other grapplers helping the
Wolverines' cause included Bill Elbin,
who wrestled at 177 last year, but was
dropped to 167 this season. "He was
real surprising, I was pleased," Bahr
said.
THE. BEST. showing of any Michigan
wrestler in the tourney was JoeMac-
Farland, at 126 pounds. MacFarland
lost to Kevin Darkus in the finals.
"He's going to beat him before the
years over," Bahr promised. Darkus is
ranked the number one wrestle in the
country at 126 pounds. MacFarland is
ranked second.
Bahr said he was happy with the
teams overall performance, but quickly
added, "we could have wrestled much
better in some places, maybe finished
in the top four or five." Michigan lost
some close matches, with Curt Torst
losing in the semi-finals in overtime of
the 190 pounders and Rob Rechstiener
finishing up fifth after a strong
preliminary performance on Friday.
"This is a good gauge for this time in
the season," Bahr went on to say. His
only apprehension is "if we can gut it
out this week, with Penn State coming
in Wednesday and they're real strong.
We also have Central Michigan on
Saturday, I just hope we cannot let
them know how much wrestling we've
done this week."
