Injured men tumblers
struggle against BYU

By Chris Murphy
For the Daily
The Michigan men's gymnas-
tics team faced a very difficult task
last weekend in Provo, Utah, trying
to break a three-game losing streak
against Brigham Young.
With an extremely undermanned
roster, the Wolverines were not able
to turn it around, losing in a close
meet, 223.15 to 222.5.
Michigan knew it would be with-
out two of its top seniors in Brian
Winkler and Raul Molina.
Winkler was out for personal
reasons and Molina was unable to
compete because of an injury.
Perhaps the toughest blow dealt
to the team was when junior Chris
Onuska injured his Achilles tendon
in warmups.
Onuska would have competed in
the all-around for Michigan. His
injury left the Wolverines with only
five entrants on the pommel horse,
the floor exercise and the rings and
four entrants in the parallel bars. A
team normally fields six entrants in
each event.
Michigan was forced to field an
undermanned roster that included
some younger gymnasts. Michigan
coach Bob Darden said the lack of
depth was the reason for the Wol-
verines' low score.
"We went in with a real skeleton
of a squad," Darden said. "Having
guys finish in the top three shows

we are doing great, but we just don't
have the depth."
Indeed, Michigan was able to
enjoy strong performances from se-
nior Rich Dopp and junior Bob
Young (55.2 and 56.6 respectively).
But the fact that the Wolverines
were shorthanded in four events pre-
vented them from putting up the
scores they needed.
Winkler and Molina would have
provided the team with both high
scores and more athletes to compete
in the all-around.
Brigham Young featured Darren
Elg, one of the nation's top gym-
nasts. His all-around score of 57.5
was the high for the meet. Elg posted
a 9.8 on the floor exercise and a 9.9
on the parallel bars.
With the Big Ten tournament
coming up in a month, Darden and
the Wolverines hope to survive the
injury bug, while at the same time
fit new players into the competi-
tion.
"We are going to be limping into
the Big Tens," Darden said. "It will
be a tough one. Will we have the
scores to get us to Regionals?"
That question will be answered
by Michigan's performance in the
next month.
A healthy month of March and a
strong showing at the Big Ten tour-
nament will have the Wolverines in
a comfortable position for the forth-
coming Regionals.

would have given the meet to Wis-
consin. Yet he fell to Stark, 8-4,
dropping the score to 16-13.
Hamdan's unexpected loss left
the fate of the match in the hands of
the heavyweight division. Michi-
gan freshman heavyweight Airron
Richardson wrestled against Jeff
Walter in a match that went down to

the wire. Richardson was down 3-2,
late in the third period when Walter
was called for stalling.
The stalling penalty gave
Richardson a free point which tied,
the match and brought it into over-
time. Neither Richardson nor Stark
registered a takedown in the first
overtime period, forcing a coin toss
to determine position for the second
overtime period. Richardson won
the toss and easily escaped from
Stark to win the match.
His escape tied the overall team
score at 16-16 and ended the Wol-
verines' season at 7-3-2.
"We were pretty pleased (with the
escape) considering we had several
guys out of the lineup," Bahr said.
Michigan practiced 11 times last
week to prepare itself for the up-
coming Big Ten championships;' to,
be held at Indiana on Mar. 4-5. The
Wolverines hope to have Rawls back
for the tournament.

Trivia Answer
Illinois. With Michigan's victory over the Illini yesterday, Ray Jackson and
Jimmy King completed an eight-game sweep over Illinois, spanning four
years. The closest Illinois ever came to knocking off Michigan in the "
Jackson and King years was on March 10, 1993, when it lost to the
Wolverines, 98-97, in overtime
