AlthoughtheMichigan men's gym-
nastics team did not win any of its three
meets over spring break, it returned
The Wolverines accomplished what
they set out to do, by finishing strongly
in their two California meets.
"We needed to get some very strong
away meet scores for our ranking aver-
age to qualify for regionals," Michi-
gan coach Robert Darden said.
The Wolverines finished a close
second to defending national cham-
pion Stanford, 282.30-281.15 atCali-
fornia-Berkeley Friday night. Cal,
UCLA and San Jose State finished in
order after Michigan.
Three Wolverines had very
strong showings in their respective
events: Bob Young placed second
in the parallel bars and tied for first
on the rings with Ben Verrall.
Verrall also placed third on the
floor. Brian Winkler also had an
outstanding meet, placing first on
the parallel bars and third on both
the rings and the pommel horse.
"Friday night was incredible,"jun-
ior Rich Dopp said. "We put a scare
into Stanford. With so much support,
we turned the competition arena into
our home gym."
In the meet Saturday afternoon at
Stanford, against the Cardinal and
UCLA, Michigan came in second once
again behind Stanford, 283.70-279.65.
Verrall finished firston the rings. Dopp
finished first on the floor and fifth in the
Young finished fourth in the all-
The team attributed a large part of
their success to strong crowd support.
"We were loud," junior Brian
Winkler said. "We had alumni. We had
parents and the team. We werejust up.
It's what did it for us."
Coach Darden said that the team's
qualifying average should be high
enough to get them into one of the top
six berths in the region. Now they can
retool some of the routines and put
together a strong program for Ohio
"Now we have a chance to try to
incorporate some harderskills," Verrall
said. "We can test drive them because
we aren't worried about qualifying for
"We can rest some of the guys,
Darden said. "Our focus from this point
on is to do as well as we can in the Big
Tens at Penn State March 25-26:x
The Wolverines performance
against Stanford, may help them mthe
"Our plans now are to do some
scaring in the Big Ten and maybe take
it away from Ohio State," Verrall sai
"It's different from last year becaus
we expect everyone to hit, when they
don't it's a surprise. Our previous losses
were from lack of confidence but (our
confidence) is back."
The men's gymnastics team fMel
the crowd is abig factor in theircompe-
titions. Akey totheir ongoing success
will be continued support.
"We took their house away, and
made it our house. It was pretty mu@
the key to our success," said Winkler.
"We need to get more people at home

The Wolverines were disappointed
at the meet in Chicago, Feb. 20. It did
not go as well as they had hoped; as
