For all the Big Ten power-
houses it has faced recently, the
Michigan men's gymnastics team
may face its stiffest competition
this Monday against unheralded
"This is definitely a sleeper
team," first-year gymnast Royce
Toni said. "They've got everything
to play for."
Indeed Kent State does. As a
possible NCAA qualifier, the team
is on the bubble. And with so few
meets remaining before selection
time, the chance to play at home
against a top team like Michigan
is a golden opportunity.
This is not to say that the Wol-
verines don't have incentives of
"I'm not content," Michigan
coach Bob Darden said. "We still
want to get our scores up before
NCAA selection time."
Having Jim Round competing
again in the all-around should
improve team scores. But the
Wolverines will have to overcome
the loss of standout Glen Hill to a
wrist injury. Mike Mott is slated to
compete in his place on the
"Glen usually has the highest
scores," Mott said. "But I won't let
the pressure get to me. I'm looking
forward to Kent State, as is the
rest of the team."

The Michigan men's lacrosse
club begins their season against
arch-rival Michigan State Saturday
at 1 p.m. in Spartan Stadium. The
Wolverines, the defending Big Ten
champions, are hoping to improve
on last year's 15-3 record.
This year's team is led by
senior captains Marc Silbergeld
and midfielders Adam Bovone and
Rich Belanger. This group has ye
to beat the MSU varsity team.
"An intense rivalry has de-
veloped between us and State
since I began playing at Mich-
igan," said Silbergeld. "This year
we will have our best chance."
In past meetings between the
teams, the Spartans' superior cond-
itioning and depth have enabled
them to dominate the second half,
The team travels to East
Lansing without Belanger, who is
out for a month with a thigh injury
suffered during spring break. Bo-
vone and Silbergeld both have
proven capable of leading the
team in Belanger's absence.
If the Wolverines can come
away with an upset this weekend,
it is likely this year's team will go
undefeated and repeat it's Big Ten

After last weekends meet with
Louisiana State University, the
Michigan women's gymnastics
team is one tenth of a point behind
Big Ten leader Wisconsin in the
regional standings. That tenth of a
point also separates the Wol-
375 N. Maple
verines from a birth in the Region-
al Championships held April 6-7.
The Wolverines will travel to
Iowa this weekend to try and -close
that gap. Their last meeting was
the second meet of the season, in
which, Michigan won 184.75-
"We beat them in the
beginning of the season, but they
have an improving team," Wolver-
ine coach Bev Fry said. "They'll
be at home though, so that will
make a big difference."
Throughout the season the
Wolverines have also improved
steadily. In the last four weeks
they have broken the school record
three different times.
The team has three more meets
before the regionals, including the
Big Ten Championships, March
Allison Winsky and Wendy
Wilkinson have been the Wolver-
ines best performers in the all-
around this year, and both are
ranked in the top ten in the region.
Debbie Geiger and Kim Crocker
have also done well this season.
