Team Win in Detroit Meet
Coach's Son Captures Another State Crown;
Sohl Nosed Out in 220-Yard Breast Stroke

By CLARK BAKER
DETROIT, Jan. 19 - Capturing
three firsts and a pair of seconds,
Michigan's swimming team contin-
ued its domination of the State AAU
tank championships tonight at
Northwestern High School pool.
Of the five men's events on the
slate, the Wolverines competed in
only four and suffered their only
setback of the evening when Ann
Arbor High S(hool's Bill Upthe-
grove, a future Wolverine prospect,
nipped Bob Sohl by a scant one-foot
margin in the 220-yard breast stroke.
Medley Relay Team Stars
Sohl led most of the way and only
yielded his slight advantage to a
closing spurt by the high school
swimmer. Previously in the qualify-
ing trials, run off before the finals,
Sohl had turned in the best time.
Upthegrove's winning time was 2.47.3
to Sohl's 2:47.6.
It took the Wolverine 150-yard
medley relay team to carry off the
evening's top honors with two rec-
ord-breaking performances. The
Michigan trio of back stroker Bob
Matters, breast stroker Sohl, and
freestyler Dick Weinberg churned
the six pool lengths in 1:21.9 to win
easily from Wayne University's team.
George Stirnweiss
Gets Baseball Honor
NEW YORK, Jan. 19-(A)-George
Stirnweiss, New York Yankee second
baseman who lead the American
league both in batting and stolen
bases the past season, has been voted
the Sid Mercer Memorial Award as
player of the year by the New York
chapter of the Baseball Writers' Os-
sociation.
Stirnweiss, son of a New York City
policeman, hit .309 and stole 33 bases
while playing in every Yankee game
for the second straight year. Before
entering professional baseball, he
gained national recognition as a half-
back at North Carolina University.

The winning time marked a new
pool record, but it was only second
best for the evening as the Maize
and Blue posted a fast 1:21.1 in their
qualifying effort. Weinberg.'s anchor
50-yard freestyle in :22.9 paced the
Michigan qualifying effort.
Matters also took a first for the
Wolverines by winning the 75-yard
backstroke event from John Don-
aldson of University High. Matters
grabbed the lead at the outset and
held it to the end in splashing to a
body-length win over the high school
swimmer.
Matt Mann, III, kept his record
clean by outclassing the field in the
400-yard freestyle event. Mann led
all the way and finished a good 15
yards ahead of teammate Neville Ad-
ams, who took second.
The summaries:
440-yard freestyle-Won by Mann1
(M): second, Adams (M); third,
Hoogerhyde (Grand Rapids 'Y").
Time: 4:27.7.
220-yard breast stroke-Won by
Upthegrove (U. High); second, Sohl
(M) ; third, Siebolai (Jackson High).
Time: 2:47.3.
75-yard back stroke-Won by Mat-
ters (M); second, Donaldson (U.
High, third, Ogle (Wayne). Time:
:45.9.
150-yard medley relay-Won by
Michigan (Matters, Sohl, Weinberg);
second, Wayne; third, Kronk AC.
Time 1:21.9.

to open the scoring for Coach Vic
Heyliger's squad. Ten seconds late,
the trio combined to score again with
Gacek pushing the puck into the net.
Renfrew Tallies
MacMillan and Renfrew added an-
other pretty goal for the Maize and
Blue midway through thep eriod.
MacMillan raced across the Gophers'
blue line and then laid a pass on
Renfrew's stick. Renfrew caught the
corner of the net with his shot.
Gacek got his secona goal of the
evening after taking Grant's pass,
but Carley got this one back for Min-
nesota as the period ended.
MacMillan Adds Another
Bill Jacobson made the score 5-1 at
29 seconds of the second frame. Clem
Cossalter got an assist on the play.
MacMillan next marked up his 16th
goal of the season after Renfrew set
up the play.
Marshall then scored his first goal.
Grant grabbed a pass from Celley and
Gacek, skated behind the Minnesota
net, and shoved the puck into the
right side of the net to conclude the
scoring for the period.
Marshall Scores Last
Engelstad slipped the rubber past
goalie Jack MacInnes at 9:14 of the
third stanza. Seconds later, Finne-
gan and Dick Roberts broke past the
Michigan defense to score again for
the Northmen. O'Brien batted in the
Gophers' fourth goal from a melee
in front of the net, with Carley assist-
ing the play.
Marshall scored the game's final
goal in the closing minutes of the
contest on a beautifully executed
pass play as MacMillan flipped him
a backhand in front of the Minnesota
goal.

I re-Season
Thomason, Parsons
Finish in Dead Heat
Michigan's 1946 indoor track squad
ran through the first of two pre-
season time trials Friday and yester-
day afternoon in the Field House un-
cier the watchful eye of Coach Ken
Doherty.
The broad jump, hurdles and
sprints were run off Friday, while
yesterday afternoon saw competition
in the pole vault, shot put, 440-yard
dash, three-quarter mile run, 880-
yard run, and the mile and a half run.
Birdsall Stars
Chuck Birdsall, veteran cinderman
from last year's squad, turned in the
best performance in the running
events with a 7:16 in the mile and a
half run, which is good clock time for
this stage of the season.
Old timers Bob Thomason and Ar-
chie Parsons gave yesterday's onlook-
ers a few thrills in the three-quarter
mile run when they crossed the tape
in a dead heat finish that would put
even the Hume boys to shame.
Bob Swain, a prominent newcomer,
looked good in the sprints and meas-
ured up to all previous expectations.
Another freshman performer, Chuck
Fonville, showed up well in the shot
put.
Swanson Wins Twice
Elmer Swanson, 1944 Big Ten
hurdling champ, showed signs of re-
turning to the same form he attained
before his entry into service in his
dual victory in the high and low
hurdles. Other firsts in the trials were
garnered by Chuck Lowe in the 880
and Julian Witherspoon in the 60-
yard dash.
This weekend's competition has
been the first time since Christmas
that the thinclads have worked out
under simulated competitive condi-
tions. Coach Doherty will use the re-
sults of the trials as a means of check-
ing the improvements made by the
various members of the team and as
a basis of comparison with the per-
formances of other teams in the Con-
ference.

Penna Leads in
Richmond Open
RICHMOND,Calif., Jan. 19-W)-
Little Tony Penna, the Dayton, Ohio,
stylist, lost a couple of strokes to the
field today but he clung to a two-
stroke lead in the Richmond Open
Golf Tournament, at the end of the
third round of the 72-hole event, car-
rying $10,000 in victory bonds as the
prizes.
He tallied a third round 73, far
hort of his sensational sub-par-65
yesterday but his 207 total still kept
him ahead of his nearest rival, Jimmy
Hines, Chicago. Hines, playing the
most consistent golf of all, racked up
a par 71, to set his total at 209.
