.Wrestling drops final two
Losses to Hoosiers, Badgers close out dual meets
By RYAN WHITE
DAILY SPORTS WRITER
The regular season is history for the
No.22 Michigan wrestling team, and it
is more than happy to see it go.
"I'm glad the dual meets are over,"
Michigan coach Dale Bahr said. "I'm
ready to get to the tournaments (Big
Ten and NCAA)."
On Feb. 19 the Wolverines (1-7 Big
Ten, 6-9 overall) dropped a close meet
to Wisconsin, 24-18. The next night,
against No. 21 Indiana, Michigan lost
again, this time by a score of 31-13.
Both meets took place at Cliff Keen
Even though the Wisconsin meet
went down to the last match, the Wol-
verines' contest with Indiana contained
the most excitement.
The meet against the Badgers saw
two pins, a near pin and a major scare
The scare came in the form of an-
In the night's featured match be-
tween Wolverine Steve King, ranked
No.4 in the nation at heavyweight, and
Indiana's Vito Maurici, ranked No. 5;
King was thrown onto the mat, and
landed on his hand.
King got up in a lot of pain with
what appeared to be a broken finger.
The finger turned out to be only
dislocated, but King, already hampered
by a nagging ankle injury, forfeited the
"He probably could have gone
again," Bahr said. "They popped the
finger back in right away, which
shouldn't have been much of a prob-
lem, but he popped his ankle again.
With his finger, and his ankle, and four
or five minutes left in the match; I saw
no reason to keep him in."
The two pins in the match, unfortu-
nately for Michigan, both went into the
win column for Indiana.
The first for the Hoosiers was by
No. 11 Roger Chandler at 134 pounds.
Sosinski at 1:30 of the first period.
The second pin was the biggest
surprise of the meet.
Brian Harper, ranked No. 4 in the
country at 150, was pinned in the first
round of his match against Indiana's
The pin even surprised Indiana
coach Duane Goldman.
"Harper's a great wrestler, and
Scott's been wrestling really well for
us, but that was definitely a highlight
for us," he said.
No.2 Sean Bormet (158) picked up
the Wolverines after Harper's loss, with
a 13-1 win over Indiana's Jonathan
The match nearly ended in a pin for
Bormet, but time ran out as he fought to
get McClain's shoulder's down.
One bright spot for Michigan was
the performance of its seniors in their
final appearance at Cliff Keen.
Three of the Wolverines' five se-
niors won their matches. Matt Stout
(118) and Kevin Williams (177) both
joined Bormet in recording victories.
Harper and King recorded the two
Unlike the Indiana meet where the
Wolverines were out of it quickly, the
Wisconsin meet was a seesaw battle
from beginning to end.
Michigan jumped out to an early
lead when Wisconsin forfeited at 118.
Michigan lost its next three matches,
but recovered with a win by Harper and
a pin by Bormet.
Heading into the final match, the
Wolverines trailed, 21-18, and needed
at least a decision by King to tie the
They didn't get it, as King lost a
tough match to No. 6 Jeff Walter, 3-1,
The match marked the first time
since the Minnesota meet, Feb. 11, that
King had wrestled. He spent the entire
week leading up to the Wisconsin meet
on the stationary bike due to a skin
infection on his neck, and was told as
late as Thursday that he couldn't wrestle
against Wisconsin and Indiana.
When King got to the meet, how-
ever, it appeared to Bahr that the infec-
tion was better, and he had the trainer
drive King to the team doctor's house,
where he was given the okay to com-
"It was a little unfair to put him out
there," Bahr said. "When the guy hasn't
wrestled in a week you can't expect
him to perform well against the No. 6
guy in the country."
While the dual meet season has not
been kind to the Wolverines, Bahr sees
it as somewhat of a positive.
"I think we're learning from los-
ing," he said after the loss to the Bad-
gers. "You can either keep fighting or
give up the ship, and I think the kids are
