Post-season continues for 'M' tumblers
Men's five impressive at regionals;
look for more of the same in Lincoln
Wymer, Carfora finish fairy tale
season on high note in St. Paul

Though the Michigan men's
gymnastics team failed to qualify for
the NCAA Championships as a
whole, it will not go unrepresented
this weekend in Lincoln, Neb.
Michigan coach Bob Darden
caught a flight this morning with
pupils Jorge Camacho, Brian
Winkler, Jim Round, Mike Mott and
Glenn Hill. All five qualified for
"the big dance" at the NCAA East
Regional two weeks ago in Iowa
The most interesting event of the
championships may be the floor ex-
ercise, where a state of Michigan
dual looms. Winkler is the nation's
best on the floor, but was edged by
Camacho at the Regionals. The two
will battle with Michigan State's
Paul Dackerman, who is ranked No.
2 in the nation.
"It's going to be a tumbling dual
on the floor," Darden said. "Any of
the three could win it. Brian's been
ranked number one for a long time,
but as Jorge showed two weeks ago,
anything can happen."
Winkler will also compete on the
still rings and the vault.
The Wolverines boast two quali-
fiers on the pommel horse. Hill, a
perennial participant at the champi-
onships, will join Mott, a first-year
qualifier. Hill garnered his trip to
Lincoln with a 5th place-9.65 show-
ing at regionals, while Mott notched
12th place with a 9.55.
"They both have excellent
chances to do well," Darden said.
"Their scores from the East Regional
rank right up there with competitors
from the West Region."

The never-ending season will
come to a fairy tale finish for two
Michigan gymnasts this weekend.
Michigan frosh Beth Wymer and
redshirt frosh Kelly Carfora both
qualified for the 1992 NCAA
National Championships Friday and
Saturday in St. Paul, Minn.

at the National Championships will
Round closes out his career by
competing in the prestigious all-
around. The senior has also com-
peted in the championships before,
and has a chance to qualify for the
finals in all of the events.
"Everyone's chances are great,"
Darden said. "There's no reason that
we can't have finalists in every
event. But, as always, it's a good
day-bad day scenario. They've been
training hard and I really think
they're going to fly."
qualifier. She will compete with No.
1-seeded Utah during the rotations.
Carfora was the 12th and final at-
large qualifier and will rotate with
Stanford. Ironically, the Cardinal
qualified as the 12th and final team
for the tournament, knocking the
Wolverines from that spot.
The two Wolverines become only
the second and third Michigan gym-
nasts to earn individual qualification
to the National Championships. In
1988, Angela Williams competed at
the meet and finished 18th in the all-
With one of the higher all-around
composite scores in the country
(39.0667), Wymer's qualification
came as no surprise. However, it was
not clear weather Carfora (38.1416)
would qualify for the meet until well
after the NCAA Central Regional
Championships had completed two
weeks ago in Missouri.
Wolverine head coach Bev Fry
was named 1992 Central Region
Coach of the Year. Fry led Michigan
(189.775) to a second-place finish
behind Alabama (193.125) in the
Central Regional Championships
April 9. The Wolverines sent gym-
nasts Wendy Wilkinson and Ali
Winski to the meet with at-large bids
last season, but did not qualify as a
team. Michigan assistant coach Dave
_ Kuzara shared Central Region
Assistant Coach of the year honors
with Alabama's Dave Patterson.
