Illinois Gymnasts
Lead Big Ten Meet
MSC's Rintz Wins All-Around Title;
'M' Disappoints In Qualifying Events

Special to The Daily
COLUMBUS - Mighty Illinois
followed the form sheets here last
night, as it jumped into an early
lead in the Western Conference
gymnastic meet.
The Illini garnered 18 points as
they won three places in the meets'
opening event, the all-around
competition. Minnesota trailed,the
Illini with 13 points and Michi-
gan and Michigan State were in a
third place deadlock with 11 points
'each, as the first days festivities
came to a close.
THE ALL-AROUND crown was
won by MSC's Carl Rintz, who
garnered the day's highest total in
the preliminaries. Illinois' Frank
Bare and Tom Gardner grabbed
Michigan's Jim Haas, stellar
captain and defenseman, was
named to the Denver Post's
1994 all-league team yesterday.,
Haas shared defensive berths
with Minnesota's Ken Yackel
and the Gopher goalie, Johnny
Mattson. On the front line are
John Mayasich and Dick Dou-
gherty of Minnesota, and North
Dakota's Ben Cherski.
Michigan's Bill MacFarland,
George Chin and Doug Mullen
made the Post's second team.

Lee Krumbholz picked up a fourth.
Mary Johnson was Michigan's only
finishing seventh.
The mighty Illini completely
dominated the big gym show
here in Columbus, as it quali-
fied 15 men for the finals. The
finals in free exercise, side horse,
high bar, parallel bars, trampo-
line, flying rings, tumbling, long
horse, and still rings will be held
Michigan was a definite disap-
pointment in the prelims accord-
ing to Coach Newt Loken, even
though it qualified 14 men for the
finals. Lee Krumbholz complete-
ly fell apart on the side horse, an
event where he had been expect-

MARY JOHNSON, still suffer-
ing from a wrist injury, failed to
qualify in two of his specialties,
the high bar and the flying rings,
and he finished a disappointing
seventh in the all-around event.
Loken indicated that Michigan's
hopes to catch the Illini are now
very slim, and it looks like a real

battle to get even a second place
The long day of prelins saw
Michigan win only one event,
tumbling. (No points are given
for prelims--the first 10 finish-
ers compete the next day in the
finals for team points)

MICHIGAN'S only other high
finishes in the prelims were a pair
of seconds. Krumbholz polled a
second in the high bar, while Dick
Bergman nabbed a prelim second
in his speciality, the flying rings.
In free excercise, a new event
this year, which has the men
flipping around on the bare
floor doing various calisthentic
stunts, the Wolverines placed
Krumbholz and Johnson in the
finals. Krumbholz was fourth,
with Johnson right behind him
in fifth.
The side horse was truly a bit-
ter blow to coach Loken, as
Krumbholz, who so brilliantly
whipped NCAA champ Rintz in a
dual meet fell apart, and didn't
even qualify for the finals. The
only Michigan qualifier in the
event was Chico San Antonio, who
finished eighth.

IN THE HIGH bar, which John-
son failed to qualify in, Adams
polled a fourth along with Krumb-
holz's second, while on the paral-
lel bars the Wolverines qualified
three men. Krumbholz nabbed a
fourth, Johnson a fifth, and San
Antonio a ninth.
On the trampoline, all three
of Michigan's aces qualified as
Adams finished third, Bill Win-
kler, seventh, and Jack Burch-

On the flying rings, besides
Bergman's second, Krumbholz net-
ted a fourth. Michigan failed to
qualify on the long horse, and the
still rings.
Aside from Illinois' 15 and1
Michigan's 14 qualifiers, Minneso-
ta qualified 14, Iowa nine, MSC

IOWA CITY - (A) - Underrated
Penn State, a desperation last-
minute choice, dumped favored
Louisiana State from NCAA bas-
ketball competition, 78-70, last
night in the first round of the re-
gional tournament here.
The Penn State victory was
fashioned despite a 34-point per-
formance by All-America Bob

ing hook shot artist, sparked the
spectacular upset for the Penn
Staters who were the last at-large

O'Shaughnessy TopM'

Winning is not unusual in the
realm of Michigan athletics, nor
is it unusual to one of Michigan's
finest wrestlers, Dick O'Shaugh-
O'Shaughnessy, wrestling in the
heavyweight class, had a perfect
five win, no loss, record in the
early part of this season until an
old leg injury forced him to quit
wrestling for the rest of the sea-
HE BEGAN his winning streak
at Michigan early, when as a
member of the freshman squad
he won the Michigan A.A.U. title
in his weight class.
O'Shaughnessy's varsity car-
eer was off to a phenomenal be-
ginning in his sophomore year,
as he won eight and lost two,
and finally went on to become
Big Ten 177 pound champ as
he dumped Max Ponder of Illi-
nois in the finals. His only loss-
es during the season were to
Northwestern's Joe Sturgus in a
close 4-3 decision and to Toledo's
Harry Lanzi.
During his junior year O'-
Shaughnessy compiled an even
better record than the year before.
At the end of the season he had
won seven, lost none, and tied two.
Wrestling in the heavyweight class
during the season he easily down-

ed Iowa's George Myers, 7-3, in
the 177 pound finals to retain his
Big Ten Championship.

TWO WEEKS later O'Shaugh-
nessy accompanied "Snip" Nalan
to the NCAA Wrestling Tourna-
ment at Penn State, but was eli-
minated, 4-0, in the semi-finals
by Army's Al Paulekas. It was in
this tournament that he first had
trouble with his knee, the injury
later being described as a torn
The injury continued to both-
er him at various times, either
when he played on the football
field or when opposing someone
on the mat. Finally after this
season's fifth meet against Sy-
racuse, it became so bad that
he had to halt his collegiate mat
career. He is going to have it
operated on in April with the
hope that it won't ever bother
him again.
O'Shaughnessy hails from Sea-
ford, New York, where he began
wrestling in his freshman year of
high school which is reason
enough for his excellence in the
sport. In his junior year he won
three and lost two, but a broken
leg suffered in football ended his
chances as a senior.
attended Hill Prep School in
Pottstown, Pa. Wrestling in the
175 pound class, he fought his way
to the Eastern Interscholastic
Prep School Championship.
22 year old O'Shaughnessy is a
junior pre-med student. Although
technically a senior as far as years
in school is concerned, he lost
some of his credits when he chan-
ged from LS&A to physical edu-
cation, and then changed back to
LS&A when he decided he want-
ed to enter medicine.
With such a remarkable record
behind him in sports, Dick O'-
Shaughnessy has certainly left his
mark on the Michigan scene.

The LSU Tigers, who took
over as Southeastern Conference
representatives when Kentucky
bowed out because of its Ineli-
gible post-grads, were bothered
constantly by the fine defensive
tactics of Penn State. The Penn-
sylvanians pressed hard in the
back court, then shrank into a
fast shifting zone.

Yale Enters NCAA Swim Meet
In Unfamiliar Underdog Role

Yale University's defending na-
tional swimming champions will
journey to Syracuse, N.Y., the site
of this year's NCAA meet on
March 25, 26, and 27, in the un-
familiar role of underdog.
The Bulldogs have lost through
graduation some of the world's
finest swimming talent, and will
be forced to rely on a young, rel-
atively inexperienced team. Gone
are such illustriates as John Mar-
shall, former world record holder
for middle distance events, Jim
McLane, last year's 1500 meter
and 220 yard freestyle titlist, and
Wayne Moore, winner of the na-
tional collegiate 440 yard yard

are diver and captain Ken
Welch, breaststroker, Dennis
O'Connor, and sprinter Kerry
Donovan. All were named to the
NCAA All-American team.
Welch, who was the fourth
place finisher in the low board
and seventh in the high board
events, is highly regarded in the
springboard circles.
