'M' tumblers stumble
By SKIP GOODMAN
'The consistency of our perfor-
mance was not up to par this past
weekend," said men's gymnastics
coach Bob Darden of his team's per-
formance last weekend at the
Illinois Gymnastics Competition.
That inconsistency threw the
Wolverine tumblers into a last place
finish in the three-team meet with a
total score of 259.35. Illinois took fir-
st in their home meet (271.05), and
Wisconsin took (269.30) second.
Michigan's Gavin Meyerowitz
scored as well as he has all season on
the first five events of the all-around
competition but faltered on the high
bar. His 8.60 pulled him out of con-
tention and dropped him to fourth
place with a 54.05 total.
The Illini's Charles Lake rolled to
first place in the all-around (57.55),
scoring better than 9.60 in all but the
rings, including two "tens" on the
high bar. Wisconsin's Gary Griffen
turned in a consistently strong per-
formance, scoring between 9.2 and
9.4 on five of the six events to finish
second at 55.35. Illinois' Tigran Nk-
chyan took third at 54.55.
Michigan's Mitch Rose made
another step in his recovery from a
wrist injury with a strong fourth
place effort in the all-around. Dar-
den praised Rose's efforts in the past
two weeks of competition.
"It was great to see that the im-
provement in (Rose's) weaker even-
ts supported his all-around score this
week rather than having to rely on
scores from his strong events," he
Craig Ehle turned in mediocre
scores in finishing seventh overall
(51.90), but Darden attributed the
low score to Ehle's competing at the
top of the lineup in every event. Said
Darden, "He had to 'break the ice'
for the other Michigan men on the
Other Wolverine highlights in-
cluded freshman Scott Moore's
9.45 on the floor exercise, his per-
sonal best, and the progress of
freshmen Ken Haller and Nick Lan-
phier. "The effort that they are put-
ting into the sport during training is
just now beginning to emerge in
competitions," Darden commented.
Irish nail spikers
With no mention of the proverbial
"luck of the Irish," there were
possibly some strange forces at
work in the Central Campus
Recreation Building last Friday
night as the men's volleyball team
suffered its first defeat of the
season, losing to Notre Dame, 3-2.
Game 1 saw the Irish step out to an
early 6-2 lead, and despite the
aggressive play of Wolverine Gregg
Davis, Notre Dame went on to win
Michigan fell behind early in the
second game, but fought back to an
8-8 tie. Finding their rhythm, the
Wolverines totally shut down the
Irish for the rest of the game,
gaining a 15-8 victory and a 1-1 tie in
With the match tied 2-2, the
Wolverines raced to an 11-1 lead in
game five, but Notre Dame took ad-
vantage of several Michigan errors
and tied the game at 11-11. In the
tense final minutes, the Fighting
Irish scraped their way to a 16-14
victory, and the final 3-2 win in the
After the match, Coach McFadden
said he was "not at all disappointed"
with his squad's performance.
Coming off wins against non-league
rivals Wooster College and Bowling
Green State University, McFadden
claimed "the team did a damn good
job. Although we lost, I'm still very
happy with our performance.r
