Georgia, Utah, Alabama, and Nebraska.
The Wolverines placed third in their six-
team Session 2 semifinal.
Although Michigan's performance
earned it a spot in the Super Six tomor-
row, in light of the team's No. I ranking,
a sixth place finish is an obvious disap-
)ointment. At the most crucial point of
he year, in the meet that the Wolverines
;iave spent an entire season preparing for,
they produced one of their lowest scores
of the 2000 campaign.
But the evening was not without its

bright spots. Michigan's 49.45 on the
vault was the second highest score of any
competing team, behind only UCLA's
49.525. Sarah Cain notched a 9.975 to
pace all individual competitors, and
Christine Michaud's and Janessa
Grieco's identical 9.900s tied them for
fourth place on the event.
The Wolverines' solid 49.025 on the
uneven bars placed second in the
Session 2 semifinal and kept them on
UCLA's heels. Cain's 9.875 tied her for
third place.
A subpar 49.3 on the floor exercise
increased the distance separating
Michigan from the leading Bruins. Once

again, Cain earned third place honors
with a 9.9.
Going into its final rotation on the bal-
ance beam, Michigan was within striking
distance of UCLA. The meet hinged on
this least predictable of events, and falls
by the Wolverines' Karina Senior and
Kate Nellans ruined Michigan's chances
of catching up. The falls contributed to a
score of 48.150 on the apparatus, but
Shannon MacKenzie's 9.875 gave her
third place. Cain earned second place in
the all-around competition with a 39.575.
The difficulties encountered by the
Wolverines on the beam represent a con-
tinuation of a disturbing trend. In their

last competition, at the Region 5
Championships, Michigan suffered its
only fault of the meet on the balance
beam, resulting in a subpar 48.55 on the
event. The more recent 48.15 leaves the
Wolverines with a two-meet-long streak
of poor showings.
Despite their problems, the
Wolverines survived to move on to the
finals. The scores recorded in the Super
Six are the ones that win national cham-
pionships - all teams will begin the
Super Six on an even playing field.
Michigan's goal remains within reach,
and tomorrow night, they have the
chance to reach it.

match of-
season

Continued from Page 15
At No. 5, Ben Cox was victorious
in three sets. Like many of the Notre
Dame players, Laflin had trouble
holding on to his racquet.
Laflin ran Cox all over the court
during the match, but often found
himself dropping his racquet in dis-
gust after Cox passed him with an
unbelievable shot.
"I was hitting the best I've hit the
ball all year," Cox said.
At No. 6 singles, freshman Zach
Held replaced Ron Nano to again
nab a victory. Held needed three sets
to defeat Brian Farrell and remain
the only Wolverine with an undefeat-
ed singles record.
"I have never been so proud of
these guys," Long said. "This is vin-
dication for grinding it out all year."
The only singles loss was at No. I
where Matt Wright - who is still
recovering from a back injury -
lost to Ryan Sachire.
"The team was very frustrated so
it is really great to get a victory like
this," Michigan coach Mark Mees
said.
The victory is just Michigan's sec-
ond in 12 matches against the Irish.
The Wolverines final home matches
of the year are this weekend against
Iowa and Wisconsin. Both matches
start at 1:00 p.m.

Houston sends
Gooden home
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -
Desperate for pitching help, the Tampa
Bay Devil Rays today acquired
righthander Dwight Gooden from the
Houston Astros for cash considera-
tions.
Gooden, a four-time All-Star, s
signed by the Astros in January and
won a job in the rotation out of spring
training. He lasted just four innings in
his lone start on tomorrow against
Philadelphia, allowing four runs and
six hits.
With Scott Elarton tentatively
expected to return to the Houston rota-
tion next week, Gooden became
expendable. Elarton has been on the
disabled list after undergoing offseason
rotator cuff surgery.
A resident of the Tampa area,
Gooden is expected to move into the
rotation and start tomorrow against the
Detroit Tigers. The Devil Rays have
allowed at least six runs in all but two
games this season.
UCLA may lose
two to NBA draft
LOS ANGELES (AP) - UCLA
sophomores JaRon Rush and Jerome
Moiso have decided to forgo their
final two years of eligibility to make
themselves available for the upcom-
ing NBA draft, according to a news-
paper report.
However, neither player would con-
firm the story in Thursday's Los
Angeles Daily News.
"JaRon's gone, that's a done de '
the newspaper quoted a member.
the basketball program who asked not
to be identified.
"Jerome's leaving, and it was decid-
ed long ago'" another unidentified
source said.
UCLA coach Steve Lavin was
unavailable for comment, but school
spokesman Marc Dellins said yester-
day he's heard nothing from Rushr
Moiso.
"Both players have indicated that
they will notify our office when they
have reached a decision," Dellins said.
"At this point in time, neither one
has notified us:'
The players declined to discuss
their futures when approached by the
Daily News after an informal workout
at UCLA's Wooden Center.
