The Michigan Daily-Tuesday, January 12, 1988-Page9
By STEVEN COHEN
Wrestling at a meet with 56 of the
top 80 wrestlers in the country
without your two best wrestlers is
hardly an ideal situation for any
team. Michigan's wrestling team was
in just such a predicament when it
kame time for the Virginia Duels on
Uanuary 1 and 2 in Hampton Vir-
The Virginia Duels featured many
bf the top wrestling teams in the
country and allowed each team a
thance to wrestle their entire squad.
After completing a tough early
season schedule, Michigan head
poach Dale Bahr entered the top notch
competition expecting to have the
Services of his two All American
calibre wrestlers, William Waters and
Sam Amine. Said Bahr, 'They were
ready to go and we were ready to use
But both did not wrestle.
THE ABSENCE of Amine, the
brother of 167 pounder Mike Amine,
proved more costly than the loss of
Waters. In order to be eligible for the
;meet, Sam Amine needed to have all
of the paperwork involved in his
transfer from Washtenaw Commu-
nity College sorted out prior to the
competition. But due to the Christ-
Imas vacation the paperwork was not
completed, and Amine was ruled
SPORTS OF THE DAILY
Amine was expected to take the
place of 150-pounder Zac Pease who
injured his knee at the Midlands in
Chicago and is out for the season. He
wrestled well at that meet. Amine
had a 158-6 record in high school.
Waters, a 118 pounder, was ex-
pected to return after taking last sea-
son off, but like Amine was the vic-
tim of a bureaucratic mix up involv-
ing his credits and had to stay in Ann
Arbor. In previous seasons, Waters
finished second and third in the Big
Ten championships. Both Amine and
Waters will be eligible for Friday's
match at home against Illinois.
In the first match at the Vir-
ginia Duals, Michigan faced ninth-
ranked Oklahoma. Michigan had to
forfeit the 150-pound class because of
Amine's absence. That forfeit proved
to be the difference as Oklahoma won
20-15. If not for the six points
awarded to Oklahoma for the forfeit,
Michigan would have won 15-14.
OKLAHOMA didn't win a match
until the 167-pound weight class
when Mike Amine lost 3-2 after los-
ing a point for unnecessary rough-
ness. Bob Petokar narrowly lost in
the heavyweight class to the ninth-
ranked wrestler in the nation.
Michigan next faced Brigham
Young University and slaughtered it,
34-10. The Cougars didn't win a
match but earned points on two
draws and a forfeit.
The Wolverines then faced Wis-
consin and again a forfeit proved to
be the margin of victory. Despite
losing to the Badgers, John Fisher,
ranked second in the country in the
134 pound class, performed well for
Although Michigan was
knocked out of the tournament, Bahr
was proud of the effort his wrestlers
gave and is optimistic for the re-
mainder of the season season.
"WE WERE disappointed be-
cause we feel that we are one of the
top four or five teams in the coun-
try," said Bahr. "Though we were
going out there minus one person
compared to everybody else we didn't
back down. The kids did in fact
wrestle as good as I have seen them
"We feel that we can go through
the rest of our season undefeated. We
aren't going to have a weak link in
the lineup. We will have 10 tough
kids out there."
Mixed reviews for opener
The 1988 men's and women's
gymnastics squads opened their
season with mixed results. The
women tumblers came back to defeat
Eastern Michigan 173.95-172.5 at
Ypsilanti, while the men were
beaten soundly by Ohio State 280.5
- 252.8 at Columbus.
"We had a few mistakes and
therefore it was a close meet," said
Michigan women's head coach Dana
Kempthorn. "It shouldn't have been
a close meet, but it was."
After the vault and bars competi-
tion ended, the women found them-
selves trailing the Hurons. They,
however, came back in the beam and
"The kids really pulled together
as a team on beam and floor," said
Kempthorn. "It was a good warm-up
meet, and it gave us confidence as
we head to Missouri for next
Angela Williams led Michigan's
comeback by placing first in the all-
around competition with a score of
35.70. Teammates Janne Klepek
placed second, while Amy Meyer
came in third. Williams also placed
first in the vault and floor competi-
tions, scoring a 9.2 and 9.25.
Klepek captured a first on the bars
with a 9.2 while Meyer won the
beam competition with a 9.15.
The men did not fare as well in
their opening match. "We stumbled
a bit," said Wolverine head coach
Bob Darden. "One contributing
factor is we had a very extremely
physical week in the gym last week,
and that seemed to cause problems in
Scott Moore's performance in the
floor exercises was the lone bright
spot for the Wolverines. Moore
came in second place with a 9.65.
