THIE MICHIGAN DAITY

aagenhoef, Setomer Win
Is Year's Best All-A roun

< A;^

Stanley Plagenhoef of Holland
and Lee Setomer of New York City
have been named Michigan's Best
All-Around Intramural Athletes'
for 1948-49.
"Both boys were so even all the
way through," said Earl Riskey,
announcing the decision of the
judges, "that it didn't seem right
that one should have the honor all
to himself. We had to do the same:
thing back in 1930 when two other
boys were so equal."
NOT ONLY do these two now
hold the distinction of being the
most well-rounded athletes on
campus, but they also receive a
"Michigan Daily" Trophy, and
have their names inscribed on a
plaque which hangs in the main
lobby of the Sports Building.
They have both proven excep-
.tionally outstanding in intra-
mural athletics. Sctomrer was
crowned Best All-Around Ath-
lete last year also, and thus be-
comes the fourth person to ever
repeat a victory.
There are many similarities in

their careers. For instance, Set-.
omer has been student instructor
of boxing at the Sports Building
for the past three years; Plagen-
hoef taught weightlifting at Wat-
erman Gym this past year.
BOTH ARE also members of
Sigma Delta Psi, the national hon-
orary athletic fraternity.
Setomer took part in eighteen
different athletic activities this
year representing the Dodgers
cf the Independent Division;
Plagenhoef competed in sixteen
spcrts as a member of the Phi
Epsilon Kappa Professional Fra-
ternity team.
Plagenhoef left Ann Arbor on
Wednesday, and headed for
Springfield, Missouri, where he
will teach summer school scholars
gymnastics, swimming, and tennis.
ALTHOUGH HE was unavail-
able for comment, the phys ed
major's associatesreveal that his
favorite activity is weightlifting
with tennis a close second. Plagen-
hoef was runner-up in this year's

t I-M Crown
dA thletes
All-Campus badminton tourna-
ment.
Earl Riskey, summing up his
case, said, "He's just a good-
all-around boy."
Setomer's main loves are boxing
and handball. He won the All-
Campus singles handball cham-
pionship, and teamed up with
John Scopas to easily win the
doubles. He also won the laurels
in paddleball singles, and, along
with Herb Epstein, the paddleball
doubles crown.
THE WINNER is picked, annu-
ally, byt the intramural staff on
the basis of number of sports par-
ticipated in, advancement in these;
sports, individual honors and
points accumulated.
Tom Harmon of Gary, Indi-
ana, is among the past winners
of the trophy. Three-time
champs were Milton Eskowitz of
Detroit, and Paul Keller of
Grosse Point.
Setomer, upon hearing of thel
decision, remarked, "I certainly
am surprised with the results."
