Ice

Finals

Tech, Boston Duel Tonight;
'M' Meets Larries Friday

By DAVE GREY
Special To The Daily
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -
Vic Heyliger and his Michigan
hockey teams are becoming a habit
here come every March and the
NCAA playoffs.
The Wolverines will have to wait
a night, however, before they can
take the ice at the Broadmoor Ice
Palace for the ninth straight time
in nine years.
Tech Plays Tonight
Eastern representative Boston
College will play the state of Mich-
igan's-other entry-Michigan Tech
.tonight. Defending champion
Iichigan plays St. Lawrence here
tomorrow evening at 8:15 (10:15
Ann Arbor time).
All four playoff teams arrived
here on a chartered plane at 4 p.m.
and were given an extra-royal
welcome by Broadmoor officials,
enthusiastic visitors and local
hockey fans in this vacation para-
dise.
It was a strange sight for all
four teams to arrive together on
one plane. In the past the other1
WIHL representatives, besides
ever-present Michigan, has either
been Colorado College or Minne-
sota.
Spirit High
Although no local team is repre-
sented, spirit for the collegiate
hockey spectacle is as high as
ever. Nearly 250 students from
Tech plus' a band are expected by
game time tonight for the Huskies'
opening-round battle.
Over 3,000 fans will jam every
corner of the colorful arena, for
each of the games.
Opinion here is that Michigan
is the -definite favorite for its
sixth NCAA title in nine years.
The two Eastern squads-Boston
College and small St. Lawrence-

are not strong in comparison to the
WIHL's two representatives.
Tech is still smarting from four
straight beatings by Michigan, 5-2,
6-3,.5-1 and 5-1.
But Michigan remembers that
anything can happen at the Broad-
moor. It was only back in 1954
that RPI upset the whole apple-
cart by winning over favored Mich-
igan, 6-4, in the first round.
Engineers' First Trip
The Wolverines again have the
edge in experience, while Tech
will be making its first appearance
in the national championships.
The conditions are ripe for the
Engineers from Houghton either to
feel the added pressure or maybe
become inspired.
The test will come tonight for
Al Renfrew's teams as they meet
the third-best Eastern sextet, Bos-
ton College, sporting- a 14-5 season
record.
St. Lawrence, Michigan's oppon-
ent tomorrow night, has been hit
hard by the four-year eligibility
question that kept the East's best
team-undefeated Clarkson Tech---
from the tournament.
Four key men will be missing
from the Larries' line-up, includ-
ing their whole first team defense.
Formal Reception Tomorrow
Michigan will work out lightly
today, then sit back and watch the
first game tonight. Besides the
always-popular sightseeing at the
foot of the majestic Pikes Peak
region, a formal reception has been
scheduled for tomorrow afternoon
at the Broadmoor Hotel..
Queen of the tournament, Miss
Jackie Lair, was among those that
greeted the teams yesterday at the
airport. The pert 19-year-old
Colorado College sophomore and
her court will host the large re-
ception and then, reign over the
rest of the hockey championships.

RELAXING AT BROADMOOR-This is one of the things which Michigan's hockey squad will be
doing in order to relieve the pre-game tension at Colorado Springs. Some of last year's champion-
ship team, enjoying the crisp Colorado air, are (left to right) Bill Lucier, Mike Buchanan, Yves Heb-

Ann Arbor High Swimmers Win State
Championship; Gaxiola Standout Diver

By ALAN JONES
It was an almost-perfect season.
With the three' biggest high
school swimming crowns in Michi-
gan under its belt the Ann Arbor
High School swimming team can
look back on a season blemished
only by a single-point loss to Lans-
ing Eastern.
\The Ann Arbor boys completed
the season last Saturday night as
they walked off with the State
Swimming Championship in front
of an over-capacity crowd at Mich-

igan's I-M Pool. Previously they
had copped the Creal Bowl Relays
in December and won the Six-A
Championship in late February.
The whole season was a team
affair for the Pioneers, as they
showed good men in all events and
plenty of depth in dual meets. In
the state meet they took two firsts,
four seconds and a sixth besides
a fourth in the freestyle relay.
Because of this balance it is
hard to pick out the outstanding
performer. If one were forced to

do so the favorite choice would
probably be Alvaro Gaxiola, a fine
Mexican diver who placed first in
every meet this year, including the
Michigan AAU meet. Gaxiola was
recently named to the Mexican
Olympic Squad. In the state finals,
when diving last, Al had the whole
field out-pointed without even do-
ing his last dive.
Ann Arbor appears to have a
fine team in the making for next
year, with five out of the eight
boys that placed in the state meet
returning. Pete Gale, who copped
the 50-yard freestyle crown in the
state meet, and Alvaro will gradu-
ate, but the boys who grabbed
those four seconds will be back
next year aspiring for firsts in the
state.
