Wymer scores 10;
UNIVERSITY PARK - The Big Ten championship
eluded the No. 5 Michigan men's gymnastics team for the
19th consecutive year, but the Wolverines need not feel sorry
for themselves. Sunday, the top eight gymnasts from Satur-
day competed against one another.
Rich Dopp placed second on high
bar (9.8) and floorexercise(9.675),
and Brian Winkler took second on vault (9.3).
BACK-TO-BACK: No. 2 Ohio State won its second
consecutive Big Ten Championship, scoring a record
286.975. Next season, the Buckeyes will try to become the
second straight team to three-peat. Minnesota accom-
plished this feat from 1990-1992.
SUPER COACH: Michigan coach Bob Darden was hon-
ored along with Ohio State's Peter Kormann as Big Ten
Coach of the Year. Darden, in his 11 th season coaching
the Wolverines, had never earned this accolade before. He
led Michigan to impressive victories over Minnesota and
Penn State, and in a losing effort, to a school-record
282.25 against Ohio State.
YOUNG AND TALENTED: Michigan's Bob Young, cur-
rently ranked No. 16 nationally in all-around, finished
20th with a 54.25. He has led the Wolverines in all-around
the entire season. Dopp (54.125) finished 21st and Winkler
(54.075) took 22nd place.

UNIVERSITY PARK - Beth Wymer turned in yet
anotherspectacularperformance by capturing firstin three of
four events, and winning the all-around title in the Big Ten
Championships. She also came in second on the balance
beam and proved that she deserves
W M 'SherNo. I national ranking. Wymer
scored a 10.00 on the vault for a
new team record, and also became the first gymnast to record
a 10.00 in any event in Championship history.
HOME ADVANTAGE?: While it may have seemed that
Penn State would have the decided advantage when it
came to crowd support, the Wolverine faithful let their
presence be known. Many people made the trip from Ann
Arbor, making it seem at times as if the Wolverines were
right at home. Chants of "Let's go Blue!" rang through
Recreation Hall all night.
DYNASTY: As the Michigan crowd started to chant
"three-peat" when it realized that the Wolverines had won
the Big Ten title, the young Wolverines huddled and had
their own celebration. The team has good reason to cel-
ebrate, because after capturing their third straight Big Ten
title, there doesn't appear to be any drop-off in talent in the
near future. With the exception of senior Nicole Simpson,
the entire team will be back next year with the goal of
achieving the unheralded "four-peat."

When don't you want to score the
first goal of the game?
When you are a member of the
Michigan men's lacrosse team, that's
This proved to be true for the
Wolverines again this weekend as
they defeated Purdue, 9-6, and Indi-
ana, 25-6, and didn't score the first
goal in either contest.
"There's only one time this sea-
son when we've scored first," Michi-
gan coach Bob DiGiovanni said. "And
that was our only loss, to the Ohio
State varsity team.
"We don't try not to score first,
it's just happens that way."
The first game of the weekend,
Saturday against Purdue, proved to
be a tough challenge. As expected,
Purdue was a strong opponent and the
Wolverines had to work hard to win
Arriving at the field for its first
outdoor match since spring break, the
Wolverines were greeted by rain, cold
and mud - not the conditions they
are used to in Oosterbaan Fieldhouse.
"The conditions are no excuse,"
DiGiovanni said. "But it gave us some
trouble. It was hard to get warmed
And when the game started, Michi-
gan wasn't really ready.
"We started out real slow,"
midfielder Dave Reichel said.
But the team did manage to gel.
"We had a couple of people really
step up for us," attackman Steve
Simich said. "Dave Reichel put in a
lot of goals."
Reichel's scoring provided some
of the momentum the team needed to
"All my goals came in the first
seven minutes," he said. "After that,
everyone picked up their games."
The end of the first quarter saw the
Wolverines take a 4-1 lead over the
Boilermakers. But by halftime, Purdue
had made up some ground to trail by
one goal, 5-4.
"Your strategy, when you're close
at the half like that, has got to be to go
out there strong," DiGiovanni said.
"The key to winning is scoring quickly
in the third quarter."
The strategy worked. In the third
period the Wolverines managed to
put in three goals, while holding
Purdue scoreless thanks to the
goaltending of freshman Anil Arora.
"(Arora) made some excellent
saves for us," DiGiovanni said. "At
And while Michigan did go on to
win the game, it tallied a shooting
percentage of only 24 percent for the
team. The midfield shot 38 percent,
but the attackmen registered only 17
percent, scoring on three of
Michigan's nine goals.
"We really suffered on offense,"
DiGiovanni said. "We had to really
play hard and reach down deep to
come out with a win."
Although Indiana was not ex-
pected to be especially strong,
DiGiovanni attributed some of
Michigan's success to a change in its
"Having more warm-up with a lot
of shooting all helped our mental atti-
tude," DiGiovanni said. "The attack
certainly redeemed themselves."
And indeed they did. The
attackmen improved upon their per-
formance the previous day to score 20
of the Wolverines' 25 goals, shooting
better than 50 percent.
"The shooting was really good,"
Simich said. "We were working re-
ally well together.
"In terms of driving to the goal
and drawing a man, we could exploit
that. They didn't have a back-up."
With two conference victories
under its belt, Michigan has a confi-
dent outlook for the rest of the season.
"We're undefeated in the Big Ten
right now," Reichel said. "Most prob-
ably, we'll go into the tournament as
the number one seed."

anyone could not believe!
More than Easter bunnies and colored eggs, Easter is the
celebration of two historical events, the death and resurrection of
Jesus of Nazareth. We believe Christ died for our sins and rose
again. He conquered death and offers us forgiveness, peace with
God, and eternal life.
But if the resurrection of Jesus is a hallucination, a hoax, or
a myth, faith in Jesus Christ would be worthless and, as Paul the
Apostle, a follower of Christ, wrote, "Christians of all people,
would be most pitied."
We have come to the conclusion that the resurrection of Jesus
has been well-documented historically, and provides strong reasons
for each of us to consider the truth of his claims for our lives. If you
would like to know more, we invite you to talk with any one of us
further about this.
