Michigan wrestling team was in Indi-

" The Big Ten has proven to be the
strongest conference in the country this
year by having seven teams in the top 20
and nine in the top 30. Leading the
conference is No. 1 Iowa with a 14-0
mark and four wrestlers with a No. 1
national rating. Not far behind the
Hawkeyes is Michigan State at No. 5,
Minnesota atNo.6, Illinois atNo.8 and
the Wolverines at No. 13.

After a bye in the first round,
Catrabone advanced to the final by
pinning No. 7 Eric Smith of Ohio
State in 6:58 in the second round and
decisioning Ernest Benion of Illinois
@1 to set up the championship bout
with Wirnsbirger, whomhehadbeaten
twice in the regular season.
With the score tied 1-1 after over-
time, Wirnsbarger registered a rever-
sal 20 seconds into the 30-second
overtime period to take the match 3-1.
"I was just hoping Icould ride him
out," Catrabone said of his thoughts
preceding the overtime. "That's all it
as, 30 seconds to be the Big Ten
ampion. I just couldn't pull it out."
The Wolverines as a team, how-
ever, were not as successful as Biggert
and Catrabone, finishing fifth overall

After opening the season with
our consecutive victories in ex-
tremely impressive fashion, the
Michigan women's tennis team has
come back down to earth, losing
three of its last four meets.
The Wolverines fell to Notre Dame
and Wake Forest by scores of 5-4 and
6-0 this weekend. Both teams were
ranked among the top 15 in the na-
4Friday, the No. 15 Fighting Irish
used their strong play in singles action
to take five of six matches. The lone
Wolverine who emerged victorious was
senior Liz Cyganiak, who rallied to
win 3-6,6-2,6-4.
Michigan fared much better in
doubles play as it took all three
matches from Notre Dame.
The pairs of Sarah Cyganiak with
Apra Moon and Jaimie Fielding with
imone Lacher both won by counts

of 8-4. Angie Popek and Liz
Cyganiak won their match 8-6.
Saturday the Wolverines re-
mained in South Bend to take on
No. 14 Wake Forest and definitely
saw their toughest competition of
the season. The Demon Deacons
swept all six singles matches against
dichigan and the doubles contests
eren't even played.
"They (Wake Forest) just did a lot
little things a lot better than we did.
They all just added up," Liz Cyganiak
These two losses now leave the
the Wolverines at 5-3 and losers of
three of their last four meets.
This is a far cry from the team
which dominated its opponents in
0 first four meets losing six
matches. But saying that the team is
slumping would be wrong.
"I wouldn't say that we've hit
the skids," Michigan assistant coach
Susan Sommerville said. "The two
teams that we saw this weekend
were of much higher caliber. It was
the first time, besides our match
with Kentucky, that we've seen
eams of that caliber."
Sommerville simply says that the
team has just reached the part of its
schedule where the Wolverines will
consistently be going up against top

State (109.5), Minnesota (83) and Il-

Other top individual finishers and na-
tional qualifiers for Michigan were Jehad
Hamden with a third place finish at 190,
Airron Richardson with a sixth place fin-
ish at heavyweight and Jesse Rawls Jr.
with a sixth place finish at 177.
"I think that this championship
was marked by very few surprises,"
Michigan coach Dale Bahr said of the
meet. "You look at the national
rankings and how we fit the national
rankings and of course Iowa is a run-
away and they're the national leader
in the rankings. Michigan State's
fourth and Minnesota's fifth and Illi-
nois is seventh or eighth and then
we're next. And that's exactly the
way the (Big Ten Championship)
rankings came out."

tournament and possible national con-
tention. Although Rawls' two wins on
Saturday guaranteed him a spot in
NCAAs March 16-18, he may not be
healthy in time for the competition.
Rawls, who had not competed since
Jan.28 when he injured the same knee
against Gardner, will be examined by
doctors in Ann Arbor.
"Probably the biggest disappointment
of this whole tournament was Jesse re-
injuring his knee," Michigan coach Dale
Bahr said. "It might be a situation where
(the injury) might be bad enough to hold
him out in the NCAAs."
