last week, knowing three reasons
why this was no ordinary road trip.
First, this would be the furthest
that the team would travel for a dual
match this season.
Second, they would face one of
only three teams that has an overall
winning record against the Wolver-
ines in dual matches. (Lehigh leads
the series 7-5.) Iowa State and Wis-
consin are the other schools with
winning records over Michigan.
Third, Michigan would be
wrestling in what is known as "The
Snake Pit," an old gym where fans
sit incredibly close to the action,
making it difficult for visiting teams
to perform.
BUT THE Wolverines were the
one dispensing the venom, as their
first three wrestlers won, giving
Michigan a 15-0 lead, taking the
crowd right out of the match.

"When you start off that way, it
quiets the crowd down a lot," said
Michigan wrestling coach Dale Bahr.
"Wrestling in 'The Snake Pit,' the
fans can really get into the matches,
and we just didn't allow that to hap-
William Waters, Michigan's 118
pounder, delivered the first quieting
blow, as he pinned Ed Regan 6:26
into the match. Next, Dave Dameron
decisioned Lehigh's 126 pounder,

Michigan a 9-0 lead going into All-
American John Fisher's match.
Fisher, who will be wrestling in
an college All-Star match tonight,

pinning him with just 2:11 into the
match. After Fisher's match, the

coming off an injury and his first
college loss rebounded to beat Lane
Pendelton, 7-4. At 158, Joe Panta-
leo, wrestled nationally-ranked
Solomon Fleck, and beat him, 5-3.
Larry Gotcher drew with Joe Her-

mann, 8-8. Mike Amine decisioned
Tom Togas 9-7 and James Dye deci-
sioned another ranked wrestler, Ivan
Borsen, 10-9.
"It's not set and concrete yet,"
said Bahr of Dye's position at 177,
Michigan's weak spot earlier this
season. "But with James' perfor-
mance out there (against Lehigh),
and if he can give us a good perfor-
mance the next two or three
matches, he may be the guy who
we'll go with in the Big Tens."
On the down side, Bob Potokar
was forced to forfeit the heavyweight
match because of an injured leg. Po-
tokar, however, should be able to
return for this weekend's tough road
trip to tenth-ranked Minnesota, and
fourth-ranked Iowa State.

Fisher goes to
Al Il-Star meet
Michigan's two time All-
American wrestler John Fisher has
been invited to wrestle in
tonight's NWCA All-Star Classic
at University of Northern Iowa.
The All-Star Classic invites the
top two wrestlers in the country
for each weight class to wrestle.
Fisher, ranked second in his 134
weight class will face the number-
one wrestler in that class, John
Smith of Oklahoma State.
Smith, who beat Fisher earlier
this year in Las Vegas, is Pan-Am
Games champion, Goodwill
Games Champion, and World
Champion. Smith was also the
first American ever to achieve
World Champion status while
still in college.

Michigan State in East Lansing this
past weekend. The women's swim

very impressive fashion.
Leading the way for Michigan's

Liebner, a sophomore from Ann
