Gymnastics team earns respect in loss to Illini, Bucks

By Doug Stevens
Daily Sports Writer
Kevin Sullivan continues to impress
people. Most Michigan track and field
fans were already aware that the sopho-
more is a two-time cross country All-
American who has consistently placed
among the nation's best in the mile. Satur-
day, Sullivan went one step further in
bolstering his already illustrious resume.
At the Meyo Invitational hosted
by Notre Dame, Sullivan set a meet
and track record time of 3:55.90 in the
mile. With the time, Sullivan auto-
matically qualified for the NCAA
National Indoor Championships. Ac-
cording to coach Jack Harvey,
Sullivan's mile was the fastest ever run
on Indiana soil by a collegiate.
"There was no doubt that Kevin
was going to win," Harvey said. "He
pulled ahead with 200 meters to go
and looked really strong at the finish.
His time was really unbelievable."
For Sullivan, who spent the past
week recuperating from a cold, it was
a personal best time.
"I was really pleased with the per-
formance," Sullivan said. "I was using
the week leading up to the meet just to
get healthy. This meet has been a big
confidence-booster."
Sullivan was not the Wolverines'
only bright spot at South Bend.
Michigan's high jumpers swept the
top three spots for the second straight

weekend. Jon Royce led the way by
jumping 7-4 1/2 feet, a performance
which automatically qualified him for
theNCAAmeet. Ben Ludkaand Damon
DeVasher finished second (7-0 3/4)
and third (6-11 1/2), respectively.
Trinity Townsend led a strong 400-
meter contingent for the Wolverines.
Townsend ran a 47.13 to provision-
ally qualify for the NCAAs. Todd
Burnham finished third, with a time
of 48.44, and freshman Duane Fuqua
came in fifth, with a time of 48.45.
Despite his performance, Townsend
expressed discontent with the race.
"I got boxed in and spiked and I
ran nowhere near as fast as I'd like to
run," he said.
The 400-meter runners combined
their individual skills to win the 4 x 400
relay. The team of Edzra Gibson,
Burnham, Fuqua and Townsend ran a
3:13.17 in overcoming the competi-
tion.
Sprinter Felman Malveaux also
turned in strong performances in two
different events. Malveaux competed
in his first 200-meterdash of the season.
He finished second with atimeof21.58,
breaking the existing school record. He
also won the consolation finals of the
55-meter dash with a time of 6.42.
Neil Gardner posted a second-
place finish in the 55-meter hurdles
(7.49) and came in third in the long
jump with a leap of 23-4 1/4.

Saturday was a disappointing
night for the Michigan men's gym-
nastics team, losing a tri-meet
against Big Ten rivals Illinois and
Ohio State.
Michigan lost to Illinois by only
one point. Ohio State came in sec-
ond place with a team composed of
many freshmen and sophomores.
Michigan started the rotation on
the floor exercise, its best event.
Team captain Rich Dopp led the
Wolverines with a 9.8, tying Brian
Winkler's best score of the season.
"I try my best while having fun
with it," Dopp said. "I went out
there just trying to set up Brian,
while doing the best I can."
Ohio State's Blain Wilson scored
a personal best on the floor with a
9.85, while Illinois freshman Joe
Corbitt recorded a 9.8.
Wilson swept the all-around
competition with a score of 58.20.

Buckeye coach Peter Korman com-
mented on the fact that his team is
young, attributing its performance
to lack of experience.
The pommel horse gave Michi-
gan the most problems, with two
Wolverines falling off. Illinois had
two members fall off as well, with
Jeremiah Landry heading the Illini
with a 9.8.
Illinois also fell behind with a
poor performance on vault as three
members botched the landing. Yet
the Illini fought back, turning in an
excellent performance on high bar.
"I am really happy with this meet
and my team," Illinois coach Don
Osborn said. "It was a great atmo-
sphere with Michigan giving us an
excellent competition."
Previously injured Bob Young
returned to the Wolverines' roster,
recording an all-around score of
54.95. He performed well on high
bar and rings and turned in a flaw-
less performance on the parallel

Next weekend
we want to
perform well, top
to bottom, and
give a real
presentation to

- Bob Darden
men's gymnastics coach
bars.
"We led off with Bob because
we knew that he was ready to com-
pete and would be very consistent
for us," Michigan coach Bob Darden
said.
Wolverine sophomore Flavio
Martins had a solid night on both
rings and the vault along with team-
mate Jason MacDonald, who re-

ceived a pair of 9.65's on the high
bar and floor exercise.
Senior Raul Molina helped in
prove the Wolverines' effort by giv-
ing a respectable routine on floor
exercise, followed by a 9.5 on par-
allel bars. He earned a 54.90 in the
all-around and was two points shy
of his personal best of two weeks
ago against Western Michigan.
"We needed to rise up to another
level, and I was glad that I could
contribute there," Molina said.
The meet was a close call througlh
out, but Michigan came away with
little to show for its efforts.
"When we have people miss or
fall off a certain apparatus, it does
not sit well with thejudges," Darden
said. "Next weekend we want to
perform well, top to bottom, and
give a real presentation to the
judges."
