'I' eighth after day.
one of NCAA tourney

By STEVEN COHEN
Special to the Daily
AMES, Iowa - Four members
of the Michigan wrestling team are
still alive in the search for champi-
onships after today's first day of the
NCAA championships being hosted
by Iowa State.
John Fisher, Larry Gotcher, Joe
Pantaleo, and Mike Amine have all
advanced to the quarterfinals. Other
Michigan wrestlers have suffered
early setbacks. William Waters had
his college career ended with such a
setback.
The 118-pounder lost his Thurs-
day morning preliminary match by
the score of 10-1ito Terry Cook of
Nebraska. Waters was out of the
tournament when Cook lost the fol-
lowing match. Unfortunately for
Waters, a successful career might be
obscured by poor NCAA tournament
showings.
"I HATE to go out like this"
said Waters.
Waters' high school teammate
and two-time Big Ten champ John
Fisher has thus far done his share to
set up his third confrontation this
year with John Smith of Oklahoma
State in the 134-pound weight
class..
Fisher pinned his first opponent
at 2:43, then defeated Allan Utter of
Pittsburgh 18-4, and Jeff Dearlen of
Penn State, 18-7. Fisher next faces
Joe Melchiore of Iowa.

Larry Gotcher at 142 pounds, de-
scribed by Bahr as a "money man ,
is a man on a roll. Gotcher has
looked very impressive in his two
wins. After a 16-3 thrashing of Jon
Evans of BYU, Gotcher stunned
second-seeded and previously un-
beaten Kurt Shedenhelm of Northern
Iowa, 8-6.
"LARRY seems to do whateve
it takes to win," said Bahr.
Mike Amine, at 167 pounds,
seems to be proving for the second
straight year that he is a wrestler to
be reckoned with. Amine pinned his
first opponent in 4:28. His next op-
ponent was fourth-seeded John K"hl
of BYU. Like Gotcher, the unseedeo
Amine upset a favored wrestler.
Amine next faces fifth-seeded Jody
Karem of Lock Haven.
Though he entered the national4
on a down note, 158-pound JoO
Pantalco may be hearing victory
choruses tomorrow. Things are
looking up for the second-place firm
isher in the Big Ten. The sixth-
seeded Pantaleo has advanced to the
quarterfinals with two strong per=,
formances.
As the end of the first day ap-
proached eighth-ranked MichigaA
was in eighth place. But as could be
seen on the first day of this tourna
ment, Michigan's wrestlers will not
let rankings determine their future.-

able for comment.
The athletic department personnel
and prominent alumni who have
close ties to the department all favor
Michigan football coach Bo Schem-
bechler to succeed Canham. Schem-
bechler was offered the job last
month, but turned down the offer
because it required him to retire from
coaching after this season.

RICHARD Caldarazzo, an
alumnus in Chicago who has been
in contact with Schembechler, had
been trying to set up a meeting be-
tween Fleming and Schembechler in
an effort to settle the situation. The
goal was to have Fleming rework
his offer to Schembechler so that he
could serve as athletic director and
coach. However, he was unable to
get through to Fleming and set up
the meeting.
A source within the president's
office, who requested anonymity,
said yesterday that Schembechler

would not be offered the job again.
Rumors recently have focused on
Michigan hockey coach Red Beren-
son being named athletic director.
Berenson has repeatedly denied this,
and said Wednesday that "I get all of
my information about this from
reading the newspapers."
BERENSON and the other
Michigan coaches talked with the
search committee last October, but
says he was never interviewed for the
job.
Another possibility had Michigan
Associate Athletic Director Don
Lund being named interim athletic
director until Schembechler decided
to give up coaching. Lund, who is
in Salt Lake City with the basket-
ball team, said no one had talked to
him about the job.

"Hunan Garden reaps the rewards
of fine preparation."

Sofiballers open season

By LORY KNAPP
Coming off of a record-setting
} 39-17 season in 1987, the Michigan
women's softball team is optimistic
about the coming season. It starts
tomorrow when the team faces
Fresno State in Fresno, Calif.
The game marks the beginning of
Michigan's week-long road trip to
the West coast.
The Wolverines start the season
with a different look as a result of
I five first-year players. Losing six
seniors to graduation - two of
whom, Vicki Morrow and Alicia
Seegert, were All-Big-Ten and All-
American - Michigan has a lot of
ground to make up.
"(The rookies) will be an im-
provement, but they don't have any
experience," Michigan coach Carol
Hutchins said. "They will need to

adapt to this level of play, but are
excited by the newness."
A GOOD showing on the west'
coast this week should insure a high
regional ranking as every team the
Wolverines will play is already
ranked in their respective regions.
Michigan's second-place finish in
the Big Ten last season (one game
out of first) earned it a bid in the
Hardee's National Invitational Tour-
nament. The Wolverines responded
to their first post-season invitation
since 1982 by winning the tourna-
ment.
However, Michigan wants to at-
tend the NCAA post-season tourna-
ment in 1988.
"Our pitching will be the key,"
Hutchins said. "If they can keep us
in the game, I think our offense will
get us the runs we need to win. "I'm
pretty optimistic about the season."
