Wrestlers pinned at NCAAs
Gilbert's All-American performance not enough for Wolverines

by Tim Rardin
Daily Sports Writer
OKLAHOMA CITY - After
capturing the 12th-place spot at the
NCAA Championships last year, the
14th-ranked Michigan wrestling
team fell well short of that mark this
time around, finishing in 25th this
weekend. Michigan's Joey Gilbert
(134) was the lone Wolverine to
place in the top eight of his weight
class, to regain his All-American
status.
The Wolverines began the tour-
nament with five wrestlers in compe-
tition. However, Jason Cluff (126),
Brian Harper (150), and Jehad
Hamdan (190), all first-time quali-
fiers, were knocked out early, while
All-Americans Gilbert and Lanny
Green (177) each advanced into
Friday's quartefinals with a pair of
victories. Michigan coach Dale Bahr
saw the effects of national champi-
onship pressure on his young
wrestlers.
"It is hard on those guys the first
time out," Bahr said. "You look at
the bright lights and the number of
people, and it's kind of tough on
them, especially in their first
matches."
The quarterfinals matched Green,
the 8th seed, against the No. 1 seed,
Rich Powers of Northern Iowa.
Green fell behind early, as Powers
notched two points with a quick
takedown. After Green tied the
score, the match remained close the
rest of theway,huntil Powers finally
extended his 9-7 third-period lead
with four con-secutive points to
record the decision, 13-7.
Things would not get any easier
for Green in his next match, as he
had the unfortunate task of wrestling
the No. 2 seed, Iowa State's Matt
Johnson.
After a scoreless first period,
Green took the advantage with a
one-point escape in the second.
Johnson answered with a takedown,

but Green managed another escape
to notch the score at two. The match
would end that way, with Johnson's
riding-time advantage securing him
the victory.
"It was an eyelash match. Lanny
was in there deep several times, but
just couldn't score," Bahr said. "It
was unfortunate that he drew the top
two seeds back to back. Lanny has
worked so hard all year, and I know
he's a top eight type of wrestler."
Gilbert had some problems of his
own Friday, as he faced Mark
Fergeson of Cornell, the No. 6 seed,
who he had split with in two
matches last year.
Fergeson employed a slower,
more controlled style to combat the
more aggressive Gilbert. The strat-
egy worked, as Gilbert fell, 5-3, in
sudden-death overtime.
"Fergeson didn't open up and
wrestle like Joey likes. When a guy
slows down and stays low, Joey has
problems," Bahr said. "We knew it
was going to be a tough match."
Gilbert bounced back nicely after
the loss, earning a 9-8 decision over
Sam Cole of Harvard, and a 7-3
victory over Arizona State's Mike
Moreno. The two victories pushed
Gilbert into Saturday's consolation
semifinals.
In order to match his third-place
finish of a year ago, Gilbert would
have to get by a wrestler who he had
beaten earlier in the season, 4th-
seeded Bob Truby of Penn State,
Saturday.
History would not repeat itself,
though, as Gilbert lost another heart-
breaker. After a 2-2 regulation score,
neither wrestler could score in the
three-minute overtime session, thus
sending the match into a 30-second
tiebreaker.
Truby choose the down position.
If he got an escape, he would win, if
not, Gilbert would be victorious.
Truby pulled away from Gilbert's
grasp in the waning seconds to win

after over ten minutes of action.
Gilbert's final match, the fifth-
place consolation final, gave the All-
American a chance to avenge an
earlier loss, as he met Fergeson
again. Gilbert came out more ag-
gressively than he had in the previ-
ous match, but Fergeson held on to
another close one, 5-3, to give
Gilbert All-American status with a
6th-place finish.
"I should've been more aggres-
sive and focused more on the first
takedown. I let up a little," Gilbert

said after the match. "I'm disap-
pointed because I was having a real
good season until now."
Iowa, which finished with 149
points to Michigan's 12, dominated
the championships. Led by three-
time national champion Tom
Brands, who earned the Outstanding
Wrestler Award of the tournament,
the Hawkeyes left plenty, of distance
between there closest competitor,
Oklahoma State which finished with
100.5 points. Penn State, Iowa State,
and Ohio State rounded out the top
five.

The women's gymnastic team
continued its domination over Big
Ten opponents Saturday, as it de-
feated Michigan State, 191.65-
187.35.
The romp completed the
Wolverines perfect Big Ten record
at 5-0, and the school record total
score, sends a message to the await-
ing squads at the Big Ten
Championship this weekend.
"This gives us an awful lot of
confidence," Michigan coach Bev
Fry said. "The team always performs
well if they are confident."
The Wolverines are riding high
right now, tallying 190's or better in
their last two meets. They have
proven that they can score well both
home and away-as they did last
Sunday in Missouri. Even with the
momentum, the team believes that
their best scores are yet to come.
"It's good to go (into Big Tens)
on a high note," Laura Lundbeck
said. "It gets the momentum and
confidence going. This brings us one
step closer to Nationals."
Individually, the gymnasts have
become stronger with each meet.
The consistency and depth of the
past, is now characterized by higher
scores and outstanding perfor-
mances.

EXCESSIVE ANXIETY OR OBSESSIVE
BEHAVIORS?

by Todd Schoenhaus
Daily Sports Writer
When the Michigan men's gym-
nastics team struggled in the early
part of the season, coach Bob Darden
had few worries. He knew his team
would overcome inexperience and
injuries to rival the nation's best.
Darden was right. Since the mid
way point of their season, the
Wolverines have improved consid-
erably, increasing their score with
every meet. Saturday night at Cliff
Keen Arena, the team's uphill climb

reached a culmination - a new
school record.
In this last dual meet of the sea-
son, No. 13 Michigan compiled
281.65 overall points. This score
surpassed a previous school record
of 278.75, set three weeks ago in
California. Unfortunately for
Michigan, its opponents - No. 8
Michigan State - established its
own school record of 284.35.
Despite the Wolverines' remark-
able achievement, more could have
