Surprising Iowa
next for cold Blue

by Josh Dubow
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan wrestling team re-
urned to the mats for its first meet
n a month to face the Lehigh Engi-
neers. The Wolverines also had to
overcome a team illness as three of
the players caught the flu upon their
return to school after Christmas.
Michigan (4-0) conquered the ad-
versity and topped Lehigh (0-3) with
a 30-10 victory last night at Cliff
keen Arena.
"I was happy with the team's per-
Eormance considering the circum-
stances," Michigan coach Dale Bahr
said. "We gave them time off for ex-
ams and the holidays, but since
Christmas we have had two-a-day
practices. They were a little rusty
and tired, but we won impressively."
Salem Yaffai (118 pounds), was
the latest Wolverine on the sick list,
coming down with the flu yesterday
morning. Though Yaffai fell to
cott Hill, 14-7, he impressed Bahr
with his determination to wrestle
through his illness.
"I was proud of Salem because he
did something to help the team,"
Bahr said. "Normally we would have
counted on Salem for a big win, but
considering the circumstances we
were happy that he held them to
three points."
After Yaffai's loss, Jason Cluff
W(126) evened the score with a 4-0
victory over Ed Regan. Michigan
then took the lead for good with
Joey Gilbert's dominating 13-5 vic-
tory over Sam Dollyhigh. Gilbert
controlled the match with his cat-
like quickness-and scored five take-
downs against Dollyhigh.
Sean Bormet and Fritz Lehrke

scored the two lone pins in the
match. Bormet scored three take-
downs and twice pinned Toriano
Boynton for two seconds until fi-
nally with 35 seconds remaining in
the match, Bormet hooked Boyn-
ton's knee and pinned him for the
necessary three seconds.
Lehrke accomplished his pin with
much greater ease as he took down
Eric Hagberg with 1:15 remaining
and scored the pin just 37 seconds
later.
Phil Tomek won his match eas-
ily, 15-2, as he had John Morris in
takedown position for over half of
the match, scoring four points. Both
Lanny Green and James Rawls also
added to the Wolverines' success
with easy victories.
Michigan's Brian Harper lost a
close match as he fell 3-2 to Joe
Hermann. Harper almost had Her-
mann in position for a takedown and
a 3-1 lead, but Hermann escaped the
attempt and took down Harper with
45 seconds left in the match. Harper
drew within one point with an es-
cape only eight seconds later, but
could not score a takedown in the
waning seconds.
"Harper has lost a lot of close
matches. He should come around
soon and start winning these," Bahr
said. "I am happy with the way he
wrestled. He wrestled smart and
tough."
The other Wolverine loss came
from frosh Kevin Williams.
Williams fell to first-year wrestler
Adam Smith, 13-5. This may be
Williams' last dual meet as Bill
Mercer, a transfer from New Mexico,
becomes eligible this weekend.

When the men's basketball sea-
son began, most people expected
Michigan State, Ohio State and Indi-
ana to dominate the Big Ten season.
But Iowa has proven that it, too,
will contend for the conference
crown.
With a 13-point victory over the
Spartans and a four-point loss to the
Buckeyes in Columbus during the
last week, the Hawkeyes have moved
to the 22nd spot in the national AP
rankings.
Ohio State coach Randy Ayers
said he thinks Iowa is "going to be a
factor. They came here and wore us
down a bit because of the depth they
have."
"We've just played well when
we've had to, but we haven't blown
anybody out," Iowa coach Tom
Davis said. "We've played just well
enough to win and that's why I'm
cautious."
Whether or not Davis is worried,
the Wolverines (7-5 overall, 0-2 Big
Ten) are taking the Hawkeyes (12-2,
1-1) very seriously entering
tonight's 8 p.m. matchup in Iowa
City at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
After losing to Michigan State
and Ohio State, Michigan is now
fighting to be a middle-of-the-pack
team rather than an eighth- or ninth-
place team. Michigan is as low as
Iowa is high.
Inwaddition, Iowa's strength - its
pressing game - gave Michigan fits
against Ohio State. The young
Wolverines - captain Demetrius
Calip is the only senior - have had
a tendency this season to make too
many mental mistakes.

"I think more than physical fa-
tigue, I think we allowed a mistake
to create another mistake," Michigan
coach Steve Fisher said. "I'm really
worried more about mental fatigue.
You always worry, especially when
you go on the road and in particular.
when you're 0-2.
"Against a talented team, you
can't play well for 35 or 36 minutes.,
A little bit of our inexperience
shows."
Ironically, inexperience is some-
thing Iowa also knows about, mak
ing their season all the more surpris-
ing. Two Hawkeyes, Matt Bullard
and Les Jepsen, are now rookies in-
the NBA, and Iowa fields six first-
year players. "That's why we're a lit-
tle cautious about this time of year,
with league games," Davis said.
Iowa is led by sophomore center
Acie Earl and junior guard James
Moses. They are averaging 17.6 and
11.3 points per game, respectively.
ROAD TRIP: The two-game
road trip will end Saturday when
Michigan plays at Purdue's Mackey
Arena at 8 p.m. The Boilermakers
(9-3, 1-1) have beaten Northwestern
and lost to Illinois, both on the road.
The game will be televised via Ray-
com.
PLAYERS TRICKLING IN:
Forward Freddie Hunter, a junior
walk-on, will return to the lineup
against Iowa, Fisher said. Hunter
was academically ineligible during
the first semester.
Junior center Chip Armer's cred-
its still are not complete and the ju-
nior-college transfer did not make the
trip. However, Armer said he should
be eligible to play against North-
western Jan. 17.

Fencers, coach compete at invite

by Ryan Herrington
Daily Sports Writer
With finals staring them down,
the Michigan fencing club performed
admirably in the Michigan Invita-
tional thanks to good performances
and lackluster competition. The
tournament, held on Dec. 15 and 16,
paired former club members, current
fencers, and their coach on a com-
bined Wolverine squad.
The two day event had duels in
all three of the men's classes - foil,
sabre and epee. The format required
teams, consisting of three fencers
each, to compete against each other
in the team competition. Michigan,
hampered by the fact that the tour-
nament occurred during fall finals,
produced only one team in the foil
and sabre divisions.
In the men's foil, the Wolverine
team consisted of senior Philip Issa
and two former club members, Ra-
jesh Kothari and Chris Williams.
TURF

that Mr. Lipson is taking responsi-
bility for it, since our staff would
not otherwise have time to do it."
Every Wolverine fan will soon
have an opportunity to buy a wel-
come mat which would invite visi-
tors to cross the same goalline
which welcomed Anthony Carter.
"The idea came from alumni ask-
ing if we would sell the turf,"
* Seyferth said. "We have had a
tremendous numbers of phone calls
asking to buy pieces."

Bloomfield Township, 48322.

Kothari and Williams were the club
president and vice-president, respec-
tively, in 1988. Lead by Issa's 7-2
record, Michigan placed second in
the team competition. A squad from
the University of Detroit captured
the gold in the class.
Michigan continued its winning
ways in the sabre competition,
where they earned a first-place finish.
The three-man team was comprised
of current team members Russ
Turner and Nik Weber and the fenc-
ing club's coach, Ivo Wenzler. Wen-
zler went undefeated within the class,
an excellent showing which was
made even more remarkable by the
fact that he was competing in the
sabre, which is not his natural
weapon.
The competition was not at the

level that was expected going into
the tournament. The tournament
field was also smaller than expected.
This was both a positive and a nega-
tive for the Wolverines.
On the positive side, the low
turnout allowed Wenzler to compete
on a composite team, with two
fencers from Oakland University, in
the foil class. Wenzler lost only his
final bout in the foil, finally suc-
cumbing to the fact that he was
competing within two classes. On
the down side, there were not enough
competitors to hold the women's
foil competition.
Following the Michigan Invita-
tional, the fencing club received'
some rest and relaxation with no
other meets during winter break and
no formal practices.
