Fresh off two of the finest
performances in the team's history
and eager to advance to the regionals,
the Michigan women's gymnastics
team will take on Michigan State
and Western Michigan Sunday at 2
p.m. at Crisler Arena in their final
home meet of the season.
In their quad-meet at Stanford two
weekends ago, Michigan achieved
their highest score ever with a
} 184.2, eclipsing their previous re-
cord, achieved the week before
against Missouri, by nearly two
entire points. Last week at Wis-
conson, the Wolverines recorded an
equally impressive score of 183.35.
Coach Dana Kempthorn was ex-
cited about the team's progress and
pointed to the performance of senior
all-around gymnast Janne Klepek,
who achieved a personal best all-

around score of 38.1 at Stanford,
earning her first place.
"Janne definitely has about 95
percent qualified for a trip for her to
the regionals," Kempthorn said.
"She must do well (at least a 37) in
the all-around in the next two meets.
"This weekend should be really
critical. If we could go 184 or 185,
we would really be looking good for
a seat at regionals."
Kempthorn added: "I'm really
pleased with the girls' performances.
We've been going into each meet
with a lot more determination,
confidence and consistency."

The loss of Hall and Carol

Michigan's fade. The lead quickly

With the score 61-47, Brown hit
a three-point shot to cut the lead to

Michigan would get. With Hall still

picked up the tempo to a speed more

"I felt they quietly crept up on

Michigan baseball team.

season with a 9-game journey in Florida

BY JAY MOSES
. The Michigan baseball team opens its 1989
season with a nine-game Florida road trip,
beginning this weekend with games today at
Stetson, and tomorrow and Sunday at Central
Florida.
Since they have been unable to practice
outside, the Wolverines enter this trip with their
perennial disadvantage. Teams in warm weather
areas have already played several games, so
Michigan coach Bud Middaugh is looking
forward to catching up.
"The ability to get outside (is important),"
Middaugh said. "To read (the players) inside is

impossible."
The biggest concern for Middaugh going into
the season is the lack of experience on the team.
Of the 28 players on the Spring roster, only five
are seniors and 15 are underclassmen.
Many of last year's talented players were lost
to graduation as well as the Major League draft.
Top pitchers Mike Ignasiak and Chris Lutz were
picked by the Milwaukee Brewers and the
Chicago Cubs, respectively. Hardest of all,
though, was the loss of Olympian and Sullivan
award winner Jim Abbott, who was drafted by the
California Angels.
"WE LOST an awful lot of people,"

Middaugh said. "We've got young people at key
positions. Our goals are still the same: to do
well and take it one game at a time. Youth has
nothing to do with that."
As for Stetson and Central Florida, Middaugh
is not taking these games lightly just because
they are the first of the season.
"(Central Florida) plays the Miamis and the
Floridas and hold up pretty well," Middaugh said.
The best Michigan has done in the past against
Central Florida is a split of two games.
Middaugh described the trip as a "competitive
situation" and added that he will be "interested to
see how (the players) handle" that situation.
