'The music pumped "Let me see your booty shake!"
.;dUribg the Michigan Dance Team's performance at the
4ien's gymnastics meet Saturday night. Inside Cliff
Ken Arena, there was a whole lotta shakin' goin' on as
-three of the nation's finest gymnastics teams took the
'loor.
The No. I1 Michigan men's gymnastics team took
third, setting a new team score record with 223.80,
behind powerhouses No. 5 Penn State (226.15) and No.
Iowa ( 228.40).
W"The guys did a real good job getting in against the big
boys," Michigan coach Kurt Golder said. "They went
elbow to elbow without any intimidation at all."
:Holder said the team focused all week on working hard
,tbTun clean, consistent routines for Saturday night. The
hard work payed off as five Wolverines recorded person-
al bests for the night.
f Freshman Kenny Keener scored a 9.60 on the still
tAigs with fellow freshmen Chris Peyton (parallel bars,
9.25), Justin Toman (parallel bars, 9,70 and high bar,
(00) and junior Randy D'Amura (vault, 9.50) also scor-
nig personal records.
"The best Michigan performance of the night was
turned in by freshman Kevin Roulston. Roulston record-
ed three personal bests in the floor exercise (9.60), high
-ar(9.45), and vault (9.65). Roulston's scores were good
ebdugh to place him first individually in the floor exer-
vise. and the vault, and his all. around score of 56.15
arncd him second place behind Iowa's Todd Strada.
"Three personal bests is very good, but there is still
.reoi for improvement," said Golder of Roulston's per-
fbrmance.
* -The Wolverines will need lots of improvement if they
- hope to survive in the very competitive Big Ten this sea-
son:-The conference boasts seven of the nation's top 20
teams in the coaches poll.
┬░Tbis week, the Wolverines will focus on No. 7 Illinois
aM.they travel to Champaign on Saturday, but Golder said
the ,team's main goal is to prepare for the Big Ten
Championships, which will be hosted by Michigan at
iCiisler Arena on March 20-21.
"The Big Ten is the strongest conference in the coun-
try,' Golder said. "It's going to be real tight. Iowa's the
avorite and could win it all."

Michigan wrestlers
convincing in victory.
'M' grapplers show signs of former selves

By Jordan Field
Daily Spurts Writer
At the beginning of the season, the Michigan
wrestling team was No. 4 in the nation. But after
a poor 3-6 overall and 0-1 Big Ten start, the team
slipped in the rankings. So this past weekend
the, now No. 15 Wolverines traveled to No. 25
Northwestern and No. II Illinois for the confer-
ence dual meets.
But Michigan looked more like its old ranking
this past weekend. In a convincing manner, the
Wolverines returned to Ann Arbor with victories
over both teams, and a refreshing 2-1 league
record.
"I am just really, really happy to turn things
around the way we did," Michigan senior Airron
Richardson said. "This weekend was really
important for our confidence and will hopefully
put us in a position to finish the season strong"
Against the Wildcats, the Wolverines jumped
on the lead quickly with wins by Chris Viola,
Joe Warren and Damion Logan in the first three
weight classes. Northwestern finally got on the
board at 142 pounds, but as All-America Jeff
Catrabone pinned Northwestern's Chris Roberts
at 167, it seemed Michigan had the match
wrapped up.
But the Wildcats wouldn't quit - scoring a
decision at 177 pounds and a fall at 190 -- cut-
ting the Michigan lead to 18-15. Michigan
heavyweight Richardson was ready to seal the
match, but his services weren't needed as the
Wildcats forfeited that class, handing the
Wolverines the 24-15 victory.
"I understand one of their main guys had a
back problem and is out for the season,"
Richardson said.
The match against the Fighting Illini was a lit-
tle different. This time Richardson's services
were needed. With six of Illinois' starters ranked
in the top 10, Michigan had just regained the
lead, 16-15, at the 190 weight class where
unranked Ryan Balcom upset No. 9 Pat Quirk in
overtime, 7-4. It all came down to the heavy-
weight match, where No. 2.
Richardson was to battle No. 5 Karl Roesler.

"Any time the match
comes down to my
match, I have
confidence ... to finish.
it off,"
- Aaron Richardson
Michigan senior wrestler
"Ryan came through for us. That was really
big" Richardson said. "Hopefully, that will give
him more confidence for the remainder of the
season. That win was critical for him and for
us.
Tied 2-2 at the end of regulation. Richardson
scored a reversal in the tie-breaker, giving him
the 4-2 'victory and Michigan the 19-15 victory.
"Anytime the match comes down to my
match, I have confidence in myself to finish it
of'," Richardson said. "I knew we needed that
win, and I was comfortable having that in my
hands."
The two victories weren't the only thing the
Wolverines had to smile about this past week-
end.
Senior Bill Lacure returned to the line-up
against Illinois from a rib injury that kept him
out for more than a week. Lacure, who is ranked
No. 4 at 158, returned with a 6-2 decision that
cut into the Illinois six-point lead.
"He's one of out best wrestlers and it was
great to have him back," Richardson said.
Also, Catrabone's fall against Northwestern
gave him his 13th of the year, moving him into a tie
for ninth all-time in a single season. He only needs
four more falls to set the single-season record.
The Wolverines now have a week of practice
as they get ready to travel to East Lansing to bat-
tie Michigan State on Feb. 4, and then come
home to face Ohio State and Purdue on Feb. 6
and 7.
