GRAPPLERS FINISH THIRD A T BIG TENS

Trost is toast of
By PETE STEINERT
Nineteen seventy-three marks the
last time a Michigan wrestling team
won a Big Ten championship. And for
that matter, it marks the last
time anyone besides Iowa has won the
The Hawkeyes, to the surprise of no
one, won their 13th consecutive title
last weekend in Minneapolis, Minn.,
finishing well ahead of second-place
Wisconsin and the third-place
NO SURPRISES either in the
heavyweight division where top-
seeded Kirk Trost of Michigan
breezed to the championship by
defeating Indiana's Bill Paxton, 13-1
in the finals.
"It feels better than losing," said
the first-time winner. "It's a good
honor, but I'm more concerned with
the nationals because it's more
"He wasn't challenged in the tour-
nament," commented Michigan
coach Dale Bahr. "We feel he
definitely has a chance to win the
TROST LEADS the team in wins
with 39 (versus six losses), and he
finished the Big Ten season with a per-
fect 12-0 record.
Joining Trost at the NCAA Cham-
pionships will be teammates William
Waters (placed third at 118 pounds),
Doug Wyland (fifth, 126), Kevin Hill
(third, 177), and Scott Rechsteiner
Rechsteiner's unlucky number has
been two in Big Ten competition. This
year's second seed finished second in
the Big Ten's for the third straight
year, losing in the finals to top-seeded
Duane Goldman of Iowa, 10-1.
HILL'S BID for the championship
ended in the semi-finals where he lost,
2-3, to Michigan State's Dave
Mariola, whom he had beaten during
the regular season.
"Mariola was in better shape this
time," noted Bahr, "and he also had
the revenge factor on his side."
Carrying a 2-0 lead into the final
period of his semi-final match, Waters
wound up losing to Mark Clayton of
Wisconsin, 4-2. "He didn't wrestle a
strong last period, and that cost him a
chance to go to the finals," said Bahr.
ALTHOUGH WYLAND did not
finish in the top four in his weight
class, which is necessary to qualify
for the NCAA's, he earned himself one
of two wild card spots. Wyland beat
Illinois' Mike O'Brien, 4-2, to clinch
the fifth-place spot in what was
probably the most competitive weight
class in the tournament.
Wyland won in dramatic fashion,
overcoming a 2-1 deficit in the final 20
seconds. "It was a do-or-die situation
and he just threw the kid off of him
and reversed him," said Bahr. "You
could just see the determination on his

points followed by Wisconsin (95) and
"Iowa was by far the class of the
tournament," said Bahr, "but I'm
pleased with our third-place finish. On
paper that's where we belong."

They took a wrong turn at Chicago.
The Wolverines' hockey season went downhill star-
ting with their series at Illinois-Chicago on the
weekend of January 31-February 1. That two-game set
was the beginning of Michigan's ten-game losing
streak that brought the season to an end last weekend
at Michigan State in the first round of the Central
Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs.
Michigan travelled to the Windy City in a three-way
tie with Illinois-Chicago and Ferris State for the sixth
place in the nine-team conference. The trio all had 20
points, but the Wolverines had the best won-lost record
at 10-14 in the CCHA, 12-16 overall. Michigan trailed fif-
th-place Ohio State by just four points, and it was still in
shouting range of fourth-place Lake Superior.
Coach Red Berenson's team seemingly was moving
in the right direction. In the three weeks prior to the
Chicago trip, Michigan had won at Bowling Green
when the Falcons were ranked number one in the
nation, split with defending national champion RPI,
and split with arch-rival and nationally-ranked
Optimism was on the rise, and the confidence level
was higher than it had ever been in Berenson's two
seasons as coach.
The Chicago series proved to be the beginning of the
end, however. The Flames swept the Wolverines, 4-2
and 7-4. Despite the score, the second game was a
demoralizing blow out.
The confidence was shot heading into the next series,
a home affair with Lake Superior. Had Michigan still
been on a roll, it probably would have salvaged a split
with the Lakers. Instead, Lake Superior continued its
jinx over the Wolverines, taking both games, 6-3 and 7-
1, to win its ninth and tenth straight contests against
In the Saturday game, the Lakers dominated, as
Michigan was held under two goals for the only time
The Wolverines closed the regular season with two
losses to Ohio State and a pair of defeats against
Western Michigan. They finished in eighth place, at 10-
22 CCHA, 12-26 overall, with the same 20 points they
had before Chicago.
In the final weeks of the regular season, Berenson
was asked what would be his team's motivation after
they were eliminated from home ice in the playoffs,
and then when they clinched the eighth seed with a
week to go. Each time he answered, "We need to win to
get some momentum going into the playoffs."
The wins never came.
A long slide...
As expected, Michigan S t ate swept Michigan in the
best-of-three quarterfinal playoff series, 4-3 and 5-2.
The Wolverines played well, especially defensively,
but without the momentum Berenson desired, they
could not match the regular-season champion Spar-
The end came in East Lansing, but it began in
A final look at the '85-'86 Wolverines:
Forwards: Junior center Brad Jones (28-39-67) was
named to the All-CCHA Second Team. Jones tied for
ninth in the conference in scoring. He had a fine
season, but the team could have used more consistency
from its top scorer. Sophomores Brad McCaughey (24-
26-50) and Billy Powers (15-28-43), and freshman Todd
Brost should be offensive mainstays for years to come.
Justice prevailed when captain Frank Downing (20-
9-29) scored his 20th goal with 1:28 left in the final play
off game. The senior right winger epitomized what a
captain should be, and he was the only unanimous
selection to the CCHA All-Academic Team. Leading
the team in even-strength goals was a bonus from the
Business Administration major with a 3.43 GPA.
Offense was the team's strong suit, as it increased its
power play conversion percentage from 126 last year
to .248 this year.
Defense: Sophomore Jeff Norton and freshman Myles
O'Connor give the Wolverines a strong duo on the blue
line for the future. Senior Pat Goff developed into the
team's best defensive defenseman. Senior Todd Carlile
did not change his reputation as a good offensive
Overall, the defense was a major weakness and must
take a large part of the blame for Michigan's league-
leading 222 goals against.
Goalies: Starting goaltender Bob Lindgren was
declared academically ineligible after the fall term,
leaving to sophomore Tim Makris and freshman Mike
Rossi the thankless task of minding Michigan's net.
Makris (7-16, 5.48 GAA) played poorly, but showed oc-
casional brilliance. His play in wins at Bowling Green
and against Michigan State in January was among the
season highlights. Rossi (1-4, 6.37), a walk-on, im-
proved towards year's end, but he still had the highest
GAA in the conference.
Despite their lack of defensive support, shoddy play
by the goalies doomed the team to a dismal finish.
Coaches: Berenson, assistant coach Mark Miller and
graduate assistant Dave Debol were three of the
greatest offensive players in Michigan hockey history.
They have begun to turn the offense around. Perhaps
the addition of a full-time defense or goalie coach could
bring the team back into contention in the future.

Lilly drove to the hoop. According to
Michigan coach Bud Van De Wege she
was "fouled on the ground and on the
shot." Van De Wege then put in a late
bid for an Oscar by getting three
technicals in a row. Van De Wege
maintained he was fully aware of
what he was doing, and said (with
tongue firmly in cheek) that he
merely wanted to "indicate to the

Van De Wege could not say enough
about his team and especially his
departing star. "Wendy has been
doing it all," he said. "She's hit the
jumper, and has been great in the
transition game and in posting people
up. She just became Michigan's
second leading scorer of all time and
this is the best she's ever played."

assured of its first .500 record since
1982, Van De Wege says it feels "a
