By STEVE COHEN
Special to the Daily
AMES, IOWA - This past weekend's NCAA
wrestling championships left Michigan with
optimistic feelings.
Ranked eighth entering the tournament, the
Wolverines finished sixth. With eight of their top ten
wrestlers returning, Michigan left Iowa entertaining
national championship ambitions for next year.
Michigan's 62.5 total points trailed Penn St.
(71.5), Oklahoma St. (80.5), Iowa St. (83.75), Iowa
(85.5), and national champion Arizona St. (93.0).
ARIZONA STATE'S first place finish was
somewhat surprising because no Arizona St. wrestler
won an individual title. The Sun Devils victory
marked the first time in 14 years that a school outside
the state of Iowa won the national championship.
Michigan qualified eight wrestlers for the champi-
onships, but were only able to send seven, as 126-
pound Dave Dameron injured his back in the Big Ten
championships.
Of the seven Michigan wrestlers at the nationals,
four earned All-American status by placing in the top
eight in their respective weight class. Larry Gotcher
finished fifth at 142, John Fisher third at 134, Joe
Pantaleo second at,158, and Mike Amine second at
167.
THE WOLVERINES William Waters (118
pounds), Sam Amine (150 pounds), and heavyweight
Bob Potokar did not place in the top eight.
John Fisher, two time Big Ten champ, was upset
in the second round by Iowa's Joe Melchiore, but he
bounced back by winning his next four matches to
win the consolation bracket and finish third.
Melchiore finished second to Oklahoma State's John

Smith, who has won his last 90 matches.
"I should have attacked (Melchiore) on my head
more. I was unfamiliar with his style. This whole
tournament makes me hungrier," said Fisher.
An even bigger surprise than Melchiore was
Gotcher. The unseeded 142 pounder quickly drew
attention with his aggressive style and innovative
moves.
He finished fifth, but it could have been higher.
Leading 3-2 in his semi-final match against Sean
O'Day of Edinboro, Gotcher - who was nearly out
of bounds - paused as a whistle sounded from a
nearby match. He was then taken down.
Likewise, Pantaleo let his wrestling speak for
itself. Seeded sixth, Pantaleo made it to the
championship of the 158 pound weight class. To get
there, Pantaleo had to beat third ranked Dan St. John
of Arizona St. and eleventh ranked. Phil Brown of
Maryland.
IN THE FINALS, Pantaleo was pinned at 1:14
of the first round.
"I was disappointed with the way I wrestled," said
Pantaleo. "If I had wrestled the way I wanted to, I feel
it would have been different."
Similarly Mike Amine had an outstanding tourna-
ment until his last match. The unseeded Amine
defeated three seeded wrestlers, including Jim Gressley
of Arizona St., whom he pinned in a tournament
record 35 seconds in the semi-finals.
In the finals he was beaten 8-2 by Mike Van
Arsdale of Iowa St. "I came very close to achieving
one of my dreams. I am pleased but not satisfied. I
fell short in the finals-I didn't react as I did in
previous rounds," said Amine.
