Grapplers strangle Chippewas

Burtnett honored as

By ADAM OCHLIS
The Central Michigan wrestling team
can understand how teams like
Southern Connecticut feel after playing
Georgetown in a game of basketball af-
ter being embarrassed by the Michigan
wrestlers Sunday afternoon. The
Wolverines won all but one match in
their first dual meet of the season. On
this occasion, the final score of 42-3 gave
a good hint about the strength of the
Michigan squad.
The most impressive, and without a
doubt the most pleasing performance,
was turned in by Junior Kevin Hill at
167 pounds. Hill, coming back earlier
than originally expected from a knee

injury, wasted no time in pinning Chip-
pewa Frank Malczewski early in the
first round.
COACH DALE BAHR, who earlier
this season called Hill "the most im-
proved wrestler on the team," saw no
rustiness from Hill, who had been out of
action nearly three weeks with his in-
jury.
Senior All-American and captain Joe
McFarland showed again why he is one
of the top wrestlers.in the nation as he
toyed with his CMU opponent. Wrestling
at 134 pounds, McFarland raised his
season record to an outstanding 16-1 af-
ter beating Ed Lagness 16-3.
Heavyweight Kirk Trost raised his

record to 14-3 on the year, pinning Steve
Adaams seventeen seconds into the
second round. Trost, who was moved up
from 190 this year in the wake of Rob
Rechsteiner's graduation, has been a
model of consistency the entire season.
MICHIGAN'S QUEST for a sweep
was ruined when Rickey Moore was
beaten by Jeff Mills in a close 9-8
decision. Moore had been tied with Mc-
Farland in team wins with 15, but lost
because of what Bahr termed "his
failure to ride his opponent."
Other Michigan winners included
sophomore William Waters (118 poun-
ds, 11-5 on the year), freshman John
Fisher (126, 13-2), Tony Latora (150, 13-
4), and Steve Richards (158, 13-5).
Among these, Latora looked the most
impressive, winning his match over
Dave Mills 11-4.
Bahr attributes Latora's success this
year to his hard work in practice.
"Tony has looked real good in practice,
and his stamina lets him score a lot of
points late in the match," Bahr said.
RICHARDS IS ONE of Michigan's
most interesting wrestlers. Not born

with the athletic ability of Fisher or
McFarland, he simply outhustles his
opponent and gives "110% each time he
wrestles," according to Bahr. Sunday,
Richards pulled away from his op-
ponent in the last two rounds and won 7-
4 after being tied at two points apiece
after the first round.
Seniors Scott Rechsteiner (177) and
Bill Elbin (190) won what will
unquestionably be their easiest mat-
ches of the year, as the two Central
wrestlers were unable to compete due to
injuries. Rechsteiner upped his record
to 14-1, and Elbin his to 12-4.
Next weekend Michigan travels to
Las Vegas for the Las Vegas Classic, and
Bahr hopes to finish in the top five or six
teams. That would be quite a feat, con-
sidering the tenth-ranked Wolverines
will face competition from the nation's
three top teams in Oklahoma,
Oklahoma State and Iowa State, as well
as 39 other teams from around the
country. For now though, it is time to
savor their thrashing over an under-
manned Central Michigan team that
Bahr referred to as a "tune up for this
weekend."

Coach of
CHICAGO (AP) - Purdue's Lea
Burtnett, who guided the Boilei
makers to a 7-4 record and a berth i
the Peach Bowl, yesterday wa
named Big Ten football "Coachc

... Big Ten's best

'M' fifth in Canada Cup

By SUSIE WARNER
"Hey dere booster, did ya here about
dem swimmers?"
Yup, that's right, the Michigan men's
and women's varsity swim team
traveled to the great white North,
Etobioke, Ontario, this weekend and
competed in the Canada Cup Swim
Meet.
JUDGING BY THEIR FIFTH place
finish against some of the best teams in
the world, it is obvious that the
Wolverines will be tough this season.
Michigan's men's varsity coach Jon
Urbanchek said, "We had a very good
performance against the top coun-
tries."
Of the 87 participating swim clubs,
the top ten teams were, from top to bot-
tom: the University of Calgary with
800.5 points, the Australian Instiute of
Sports with 686.5, the North York
Aquatic Club with 492, Michigan at

fourth with 355, followed by Indiana
University with 313, Etobiocoke Swim
Club with 299.5, the Hurricane Swim
Club from Florida with 291, Florida
State with 276, Pointe Claire of Mon-
treal with 269, and finally at tenth the
University of Victoria from British
Columbia with 266.5 points.
"Dave Kerska gave the best in-
dividual performance for Michigan,"
said Coach Urbanchek. Kerska placed
third in both the 50 meter and 100 meter
freestyle, snagging times of 23:12 and
51:34 respectively. He also earned a
second place finish in the 4 x 100
freestyle relay along with teammates
Gary Antonick, Mike Creaser and Dave
Goch with a time of 3:30:42.
ONLY ONE OTHER Wolverine
touched out those hoseheads in the
finals. Mark Parrish took fifth place in
the 200 breaststroke with a time of
2:24:35.
