Junior Salem Yaffai attempts a cross-body move in his 118-class bout. (A.M. ELEKT) Sam Amine, a sophomore is pronounced the victor over his conference rival opponent from Iowa. (A.M.ELERT) \A/ Wrestlers Set Dual Match Record The 1988-1989 University of Michi- gan wrestling team returned four Ail- Americans and the most NCAA championship points of any Division I-A team from the 1987-1988 team. They are led by Dale Bahr, the second- winningest wrestling coach (100-63- 2) in the school ' s history. With a 20-2 dual match record, eight of ten wres- tlers qualifying for the NCAA Cham- pionships, and three All- Americans, the team should have been quite proud of their finish. Unbelievably, they were not completely satisfied at season ' s end. The successes of the wrestling team included upsetting Iowa and break- ing the Hawkeyes string of 99 match victories as well as setting a new dual meet win record of 20 bettering the 1984-1985 mark of 17. Oneofthe goals the team set for themselves at the beginning of the year, however, was to come out on top of the Big Ten. After emerging from the regular sea- son 12-0, the Michigan wrestlers suf- fered a disheartening third place fin- ish at the Big Ten Championship meet, behind Iowa and Minnesota. At the NCAA Championships, Michi- gan also came up shorter than hoped, placing fifth. Individually, several Michigan wrestlers found themselves at or near the top when the season closed. Bahr liked to call the wrestlers in the classes 134 through 167 his " Murderer ' s Row. " The five included brothers Sam and Mike Amine, John Fisher, Larry Gotcher, and Joe Pantaleo. Gotcher, a senior 142-pounder wrestled to a Big Ten title, a fourth place finish at NCAA ' s, and Ail- American status. Pantaleo also re- ceived Ail-American honors by re- peating his 1988 performance finish- ing as the Big Ten and NCAA runner- up in the 158-pound class. Frustrations occurred on the indi- vidual level also. Fisher, a senior, felt the biggest of these personal disap- pointments. Before the season began, Bahr said of him, " John is one of the greatest wrestlers in the United States Men ' s Wrestling this year at any weight class. " In Janu- ary he was honored as the Big Ten Athlete-of-the-Month for his unde- feated 1988-1989 regular season cam- paign at 134 pounds. After becoming the 28th three-time Big Ten champ by defeating arch-rival Joe Melchiore of Iowa, however, Fisher placed fourth at the NCAA meet. Even though he became a four-time All-American, Fisher had hoped to finish his college career with a national championship. Others too did not finish as high as they had hoped. John Moore (126), Sam Amine (150), Fritz Lehrke (190), and Bob Potokar (HWT) placed fourth at Big Ten ' s while Mike Amine (167) took fifth, earning them berths at the NCAA Championships. None of them placed in the top eight neces- sary for All-American honors. Overall, the 1988-1989 Michigan wrestling team may have not attained their pre-season aspirations, yet, the- many noteworthy performances placed them a notch higher than the 1987-1988 team, by Kelly Hanink J SPORTS 159
