Grapplers ready for EVVI. foes

After coming off a thrilling 22-21
victory over Cleveland State, the
second best team in the Eastern
Wrestling League, it would, seem
only natural for the wrestling
team to suffer a letdown.
But in preparation for hosting a
pair of EWL foes this weekend
(Pitt at 2 p.m. Saturday and West
Virginia at 2 p.m. on Sunday),
Penn State has been practicing as
hard as It has all season.
The Lions, No. 4 in the country
with a 12-2 mark, have practiced
every day this week at 6:45 in the
morning and again at 3:45 p.m. Of
these additional practices, 167-
pounder Eric Brugel said they will
help in the long run
"We • have been going at it in
practice this week, and we may be
a little tired this weekend," the
junior said. "But I think the extra
practices will benefit us down the
road as we approach tournament
But Penn State is gearing up for
the EWL championships and na
tionals without many of its star
Scott Lynch (126) is still out, as
is John Manotti (134). Filling those
spots this weekend will be Scott
Webster and Marty Bollinger, re
Recent developments will also
force Penn State Head Coach Rich
Lorenzo to use backups at the next
two weight classes as well.

with knee problems and • 150-
pounder Chris Bevilacqua (22-3-3)
is suffering from bronchitis.
Childs was scheduled to wrestle
off this week with Gary Kaschak
for the starting nod at 142, which
will now fall into Kaschak's hands.
And a new face, that of fifth
year senior Jeff Rosenberger, will
be thrust into the lineup for the
first time this year at 150.
One of the many injured start
ers, heavyweight Steve Sefter, is
expected back into the lineup after
a two-match absense.
Although Pitt and West Virginia
are by no means the class of the
EWL, they both are blessed with
For Pitt, 126-pounder Kyle Nel

morton (15-5) and 167-pounder Jeff
Jelic (22-2) give them a strong
Even though the Panthers are
only 5-9 coming in, Lorenzo said
that record is deceiving.
"Pitt has some outstanding indi
viduals and they
. are wrestling
better now than they have all
year," Lorenzo said. "Although
they are 5-9, they took Navy down
to the wire and we're not going to
take them lightly."
The feature match on Saturday
is between two of the best 167-
pounders in the country, the Lions'
Brugel (22-6) and the Panthers'
All season long Brugel has had
problems with the top wrestlers in
his weight class and he is hoping to
turn that around on Saturday.

"I'd really love to beat him,
especially since I've lost to him
before," Brugel said. "It will be a
challenge for me, but if I keep my
hedd in the match and I avoid
making mistakes, there's no rea
son I can't win."
West Virginia, like Pitt, has a
few strong weight classes, but
lacks the team depth the Lions
Lorenzo said the Mountaineers
(5-5) are strong from 167 to heavy
weight and should provide his
squad with a good test heading
The importance of , this week
end's doubleheader is largely in
the seedings of the individual
wrestlers for the EWL tourna
ment, which is done by the EWL
And with Penn State missing at
least four wrestlers who have a
good shot at participating in that
tournament, Lorenzo said it's un
fortunate that Pitt and West Vir
ginia will not get to see a stronger
Penn State lineup.
"I wish we had the full team,
because it's important for seeding
purposes," he said. "All the
coaches try to figure out the seeds,
and by not seeing someone wres
tle, it makes that process more
"Look at Bevilacqua. He's one
of the best 150-pounders in the
country, but he's 0-0-2 in the EWL
and he's not going to wrestle at all
this weekend. So after five EWL
matches he'll still be 0-0-2."
Gymwomen optimistic for Arizona St.
By RICK STOUCH
Collegian Sports Writer
What the women's gymnastics team could use right now
is some rest. Instead, Penn State will face No. 2 Arizona
State at 8 tonight in Rec Hall.
But the Lady Lions (9-3) are just back from a successful
midwestern swing with no losses and no . injuries. So Head
Coach Judi Avener said although the gymnasts are tired
and the chances of beating Arizona. State are small, the
Penn State team is optimistic and inspired.
"They're just so tired they don't know how tired they
are," Avener said. "but their hearts won't let them be
tired. I think they'll rally because they really want to do a
good job. They don't want to embarrass themselves or.
Penn State in front of this great team. I think they're
really going to try hard."
The Lady Sun Devils, who finished second in the NCAA
last year, appear nothing , less than awesome. Avener
heard from Nebraska's coach that they and Utah are
potentially the highest-scoring and deepest teams ever
assembled in women's gymnastics.
Sh 6 also heard that Arizona State averages 9.4 per event
and has a high meet score of 186, compared to Penn State'g

of the year, the Harvard University

"Unless Arizona State completely falls apart we can't '

going to sound like a broken record, but we want to learn
from this "
If the Lady Lions can learn things as important as what
they did on the road, tomorrow night's lesson could be
helpful indeed. Avener said at Wednesday's Nebraska
meet, a 178.35-178.05 Penn State win, she discovered just
how much desire her team has. -
"They were so exhausted and Nebraska was so hot," she
said. "The Nebraska meet was so loseable. We could have
thrown it away so easily, 'and they just didn't do it. •
"I learned that they are really hungry. I learned to
believe in them and their desire and they learned to
believe in themselves and never to give up. They came ,
through under pressure so many times. As a coach I really
learned they have the heart and desire to go to the top."

Spikers get a rest' against Ball St.
By JOHN WEISS
Collegian Sports Writer
The men's volleyball team has been
waiting a long time for this weekend.
After opening the season with four
weekends of either road matches or
tournament play, the No. 7 Nittany
Lions are finally getting what any
team enjoys a single home match.
When Penn State (11-4) takes on
No. 9 Ball State 4 7 p.m. tomorrow at
Rec Hall's South Gym, Head Coach
Tom Tait will see quite a few advan
tages overtaking his team into tour
"This weekend it'll surprise me if
we don't come out and play really top
notch volleyball," Tait said. "Those
first four weeks were quite a grind.
"Now we can really focus all of our
attention on one team," the coach
added. "We know who it's going to be
in advance and we know who they are
and what they're like and what they
like to do."
Sophomore setter Duane Trumble
echoed Tait's sentiments.
"It helps us concentrate on just the
one match," Trumble said. "Some
times it's always in the back of your
head who your going to play next and
you shouldn't do that, but it's always
Part of the Lions' problem in last
week's Ohio State Invitational was
not knowing they would be running up
against the host Buckeyes in the
1) semifinals. Penn State lost to No. 10
Ohio State in the five-game match.
"After the Ohio State match we
were all very disappointed," Trum
ble said, "but we had a big talk on the
way home and we got things straight
ened out "
Trumble said the team confirmed it
had to get into each match, intensity
wise, right from the start, instead of
waiting to get too far into the games.
The Lions have worked in practice
this week to turn 'that around.
There is no doubt Penn State's
intensity will have to be soaring
against a team of Ball State's caliber.
The team is one that Cardinal Head
Coach Don Shondell has called "on
paper, the most talented group in my
24 years at Ball State."
The Cardinals are a team much the

The heart of the team lies in a trio

Randy Litchfield, middle blocker Bri

But Tait said Ball State has not had
as an outstanding a season as ex
pected, already losing key matches to
Ohio State and George Mason, as well
as to Penn State. The Nittany Lions
defeated the Cardinals two weeks ago
in a Rec Hall comeback thriller 10-15,
13-15, 16-14, 15-10, 15-6.
"They (Ball State) certainly have
the advantage of experience, of all
those players having played togeth
er," Tait said. "That certainly has to
be positive for them."
However, Tait said an abundance
of experience can sometimes work
against a team.
"Experience is good but sometimes
you find out that when you get every
body back and it looks like everything
is together, that from a mental stand
point you don't get things together,"
Tait said. "Sometimes complacency
starts to develop."
Is this what has happened to the
veteran Cardinals? Tait said he is not
sure, but the possibility is there.
But this hardly means the Ball
State squad is to be taken lightly and
it's very doubtful they will be compla
Trumble mentioned the strong ri
valry that exists between the two
teams. He said he would not be sur
prised if the Cardinals were seeking
revenge from their loss two weeks
"A lot of the guys don't like Ball
State," Trumble said, "and I think
that across the net there's always
going to be a rivalry with any team,
but we play them every year and
they're always out to beat us.
"They're going to come out after us
pretty hard and we're expecting
that," Trumble added, "but we just
have to keep our intensity level high
