Gynasts are healthy,
ready for Big Tens
By DOUGLAS VOLAN
A healthy women's gymnastics squad will challenge for the Big Ten
championships this weekend in Minneapolis. "It's what we've worked for
all year long," said coach Dana Kempthorn.
The team is very optimistic since this will be the first time in a long
time that coach Kempthorn can put all three of her top all-around per-
formers (Heidi Cohen, Janne Klepe, and Amy Meyer) together in the
same meet. Injuries have made this impossible up to the Big Ten meet.
"WE HAVE more depth now," said Kempthorn. "This will be our
Realistically, though, coach Kempthorn knows that it will be hard
powerhouses Ohio State, Michigan State, and Minnesota (where the
Golden Gophers will be at home for the Championships), since each of those
teams average more than five points better than the Wolverines
in team score.
"I'd like to be better than fourth
(Michigan finished fourth in last
year's Big Ten championships), N *
but I'd be very pleased with four- 4 ""~
th," said Kempthorn. "Just to get
fourth we'd have to hit like we've
never hit before, and no falls.We'd
have to perform our cleanest
routines of the year.
HOWEVER, any hope for upending
one of the top three teams is not in*
vain. When the Wolverines took an ,
Ohio State and Michigan State
earlier in the season (both losses) k\\
they did not have the depth in
lineup they'll benefit from this
weekend. "Due to injuries, we did
not have our strongest lineup for
OSU or Michigan Stae, so I'm
hoping for a surprise," said Kem-tC o uen
pthrn.... top all-arounder
The Big Tens are also important because the team members get to
compete individually and have a chance to be Big Ten champions in the
four different events. "There is a lot of incentive for the girls to do well
because there is a lot of pride and prestige in the Big Ten's," Kempthorn
noted. "It's a chance for the girls to prove themselves."
In regards to the tournament schedule, the team competition will be
tonight, while the individual competition will then be tomorrow night.
Heidi Cohen represents the Wolverines' best chance for success in the in-
dividual competition. She will try to better her fifth place finish on the
floor excercise in the 1984 Big Ten meet.

Farmer in an NCAA Southeast Regional semifinal game last night.
Walker poured in 22 points as the Wildcats dumped the Crimson Tide.

double in the third.
MIKE TRUJILLO replaced Boyd
and faced only three batters in the

Glenn Hoffman after he cut off a
throw from the outfield.
Rookie Mike Rochford took over for
