There were ded uctions made for routines that were short and also for grip faults in vault in g.
Jim Cul hane who threw a double twister and overt urn ed it for t he first time in competition. John Crosby 's RO, ff, wh ipback, ff, double back ; 1'1, twisting dive roll; and double twister dismount which brought him scores of 9. Doug Fitzjarrell 's high double back mount into back roll wit h ff off knees; full and 1'1, twisting d ive rolls, and double twister dismount.
Dave Butzman - front handspring to full twisting dive rol l. Jim Stephenson - RO, ff wh ipback If, fu ll ; a tour jete to sp lit leap to lunge; a layout with 'I, twist to step out; and double twister dismount. Bob Anderson - double twist mount; a high V support and press to handstand, and an inlocate with extension to handstand.
Tom Beach with handspring step out to front step out to side aerial. Me l Hill 's st radd led pivot on his back and ro ll over one shoulder to a chest rollout a lso used byTom Weeden. The best balance of tumbling, st rength, and transition lay with the West and MidWest. Most routines cons isted of four passes using one side and repeating one diagonal.
The piked som ie with turn from a roundoff is stil l a wide ly used sho rt transition tumbling move, but increasingly we find the full and 1'12 twist ing dives. Many double twisting mounts were thrown ; most dismounts were at least full s with a few double twists. Pommel Horse Here, Marsha ll Avener and Steve Hug were expected to battle it out, but with Hug injured, there were few others of stature to chall enge Marshall.
Avener swung high and smooth and was a littl e fast but took the tit le anyhow. M ik e Carter was a little rushed also but comp leted as did Weeden who had a ba lance problem but muscled through.
Everyone else had a break or two and the fina l placings after Avener bore littl e resemblance to who had the most cons istent pommel horse ski ll. Some notes on individuals: Dave Eby routine flowed easily. Kanati A ll en - those hooked toes aga in! Dusty Ritter - has come a long ways. Jon Hallberg - another swinger. Ted Mart i - good 8. Jim Ivicek ' s strange dismount. Cu lhan e - a veteran who knows how to m ake ex peri ence payo ff with a co mpl eted routin e.
Ja y Wh elan - works w ith rhythm. Dou g Fit zjarrell - high and clean. Unfortunately fo r pomm el horse fans, th e eve nt' s difficulties are al so difficu lt to ca tch and this report er noted on ly a preval ence of loop, loop with Vl off as dismounts with mo stl y co mmon combinations preceding.

A fin al th ank s fr o m th e Gymnast staff for th e m an y co urtesies show n us. The gi rl s did a wonderfu l job and performed we ll w ith fe w major breaks or fa lls. I also have to say the ju dges did an excellent job putting the gi rl s through the rout ines in a near minimum time and scoring them in most cases as clo se to the quality of th eir wo rk as possible. We th o ught we h ad p roblems before the meet began, and to a degree we d id. The information on th e m ee t and the change from Chicago to Denver was sent out five weeks before th e meet.
The in fo rm ation was sen t to th e Technical D irecto rs of th e Reg io ns. For some reason some of them never received the informat ion and othe rs did not hi ng with it when th ey got it.
This brou ght abou t mass co nfusi on. We received dozens fo phone cal ls from all over the United States wo nd erin g where the informat ion was and co ul d they get th eir girl entered. Up to th e mo rnin g of the meet we were still getti ng entri es. Some wo rk has to be done for future yea rs bn thi s probl em. A m eet d irector in Den ve r Co lo rado or anyp lace else cannot poss ibly know if Susie Benson in Skunk Holl ow Kentucky has qua li fied.
That is taking it pretty far, but the point is the Reg iona l Director s have the responsibility to get this information to their Reg ions. We had a b it of a breakdown this year and last as I remember it. Because o f the Sen ior Nationals being the las t ch ance for a girl to qualify for Elites and Junior G irl s who reach the age of 15 before the end of th e year, th e Nat ion als grew and grew w ith each passing day.
We started w ith 52 gi rl s we thought wo uld be here and ended up with B5. We started at 2: On Friday for Optionals we fini shed act uall y a half hour late. Fin als were run smoothl y and w itho ut inci d ent after we got past the opening ceremo ni es wh ich were a litt le hectic at firs t. The all around and the team t itle we re up for grabs from th e moment the meet began until it fini shed.
We wo uld have one girl lea ding, then t he next sess ion ano th er would take over and so o n until Debbi e Wilcox of th e Littl eton Flyers in LittletonCo lorado emerged the w inn er. D ebbie was steady all three days as she pi led up She sco red a Lind a An to nio of th e Denve r Schoo l of Gymnastics made ano th er fantastic run in Optionals an d moved fro m 8th to third w ith a She had the highes t optio nal sco re of th e meet to make her mo ve.
Severa l gi rl s had a shot at the all around, but had problem s in one even t. For Muncey it was Optional Beam. For Antonio it was Compul sori e Beam. For Shell y Bier it was Optional Bars. The tragedy at Columbine High School in Colorado was a wake up call for families, school districts and law enforcement agencies across the country and Clarkston was no exception. Schools reevaluated their crisis plans and security was increased all of the the buildings in Clarkston Community Schools the day after the shootings.
The Lady Wolves beat Goodrich, Angela Humphreys scored the third goal, which sealed the deal against the Martians. The Clarkston Community Schools Board of Education unanimously voted to lay off 30 teachers and two administrators for the during a special meeting. The cuts were due to the overall financial situation for the district as they anticipated reductions in state aid, loss of revenue from the Headlee rollback, expected return from leaver of high seniority teachers and declined of enrollment at the Oakland Technical Center — Northwest Campus.
Business owners were cautious as a string of bad checks used in Independence Township were being reported to police. Most of the checks had been returned because the account was closed. The girls team also won with performances from field and distance runners for a score. Janet Miller received Honorable Mention for her book jacket design in a contest for advertising students at Wayne State University. Three were from the area.
Headstones were knocked off their pedestals and were left laying on the ground. In October the board voted to create a parking violations bureau to oversee infractions and collect revenue from parking tickets issued within township boundaries. The tickets would now be handled through the court system. She is there if they want to drop by and say hi, borrow money for the vending machine or need someone to talk to. Through her work she helps students as they try to cope with the pain and uncertainty of growing up.
Mauti left coaching for the position of assistant principal at the high school. Coach Mel Vaara also receive recognition during the banquet.
He was given a plaque for years devoted to coaching. It was answered with a compromise — six sports were added at Clarkston High School and the board promised to give careful review too all extracurricular programs beginning with band. He roller bladed each day, and also had a couple of fundraising projects and businesses going on.
The former Independence Township supervisor shared the story of his flight with his son, Mike. They had to crash landing his plane when they ran out of gas. His companions told police they went for a swim in the Mill Pond after a bowling banquet. After five minutes they heard their friend screaming for help, but it was too dark to find him. The fire department assisted in recovering the body which was in 23 feet of water and 50 yards from the shore.
Three Clarkston High School students wanted the day off from school — and they got it as they spent time in Oakland County Jail. Clarkston High School athletes April, Christina and Jennifer Rooding were a triple threat for the girls track and field team. The triplets competed in the same events and found a key element in their relationship to be competing.
They also found running as a great way to spend time with each other. Sashabaw Junior High School was named an exemplary school for the entire nation. When a national team of evaluators came to visit the school in spring Principal David Reschke said they were highly complimentary. SJHS was one of schools in various categories to be chosen around the country — about four schools per state.
In Michigan, only two other schools in the middle school category received the honor. A cartoon-like poster of the Clarkston area was in the planning stages. Sponsored by the Clarkston Area Chamber of Commerce, the poster would include a few major streets, historic homes, schools, government offices, post office and library. Veterans shared wartime stores in honor of Memorial Day. They dug themselves out of a deficit with five runs in the bottom of the fourth winning.
It gave the Lady Wolves their 20th consecutive win as the improved to Sparks from a passing train ignited a grass fire requiring the efforts of firefighters from five townships. Officials believed the fire started at 11 a. During the next hours it spread to spots across three townships. They also issued loitering citations and broke up fights.
Four Clarkston High School students received a first-hand look at the world of health care since February in a new school-business partnership. Serving as volunteers, the students moved to different areas of Pontiac General Hospital and were exposed to various functions and skills employees perform.
The spotlight was on Dennis Ulrick during the all band concert. He wrote the piece and arranged it. Members of the Clarkston High School community sent good wishes to Columbine High School in the form of cards, letters, a banner and 1, paper cranes made by students in alegebra and Japanese Language classes.
It was finally the end of the paving problems on Walters Road. Earlier in the spring, Pine Knob Elementary fifth grade teacher Nancy Battishill asked her students to design their own science experiment and they asked her to use yo-yos.
The yo-yo experiment helped the students understand the principles of science and math. The Clarkston Village Council approved new weight limits for North Holcomb Road between East Washington and Miller roads after receiving information how much weight the road could handle from a core sample.
It was determined the weight should be limited to six tons for one axle vehicles and 8. The fire department received a phone call at 3 a. She developed the art program for S. Harry Yoh receives Golden Anniversary diploma? The 23 surviving members of the Wayne State University School of Medicine Class ofwhich originally numbered 54, where honored. Independence Township officials driven to solve a car perk option wound up spinning their wheels at their June 1 meeting.
The matter was eventually tabled after lengthy discussions and several failed motions. The board also discussed a possibility of a new hall. Only those hogs were Goldwings and Harleys. The MDOE threatened to close the academy as well as 30 other Michigan private schools for not submitting certain information such as reports on particular areas such as teachers, curriculum and day of operation as required by state law. Residents joined with leaders with three area subdivisions off M to petition for a stoplight and a reduced speed limit on M north of I in Independence Township.
In May, a teenage driver turned onto M because it looked like it was clear. She ended up broadsided by a vehicle traveling north on M Nichole Chinavare won the 1,meter run by a tenth of a second and helped her 3,meter relay team of Carrie Roeser, Jenny Mahler and Sonya Shaffer win as well. The girls finished in sixth place in the state.
Clarkston High School bid farewell to seniors. They had seven receive Scholastic and Leadership awards.
Former patients of North Oakland Radiology of Clarkston had a new way of obtaining their x-ray films and mammograms. Following a hearing at the U. Bankruptcy Court in Detroit, U. Bankruptcy Trustee Michael Stevenson would be responsible for all records being retrieved by former patients. If you wanted a quiet, a really quiet, stay for the night Millpond Inn was the best place for it. Chris Turner was turning over a new leaf in the fall. He would become the new principal at Independence Elementary as of July 1 after serving as principal at Bailey Lake Elementary for five years.
The Pine Knob Golf Course reported not just one but two holes-in-one made at the course. The first one was made by Murt Katt of West Bloomfield as he hit the ball yards into the cup on the 15th hole.
The second one was Dan Hull of Mount Clemens. He shot a hole-in-one on the third hole. Independence Township resident Kristen Whisner started in chorus in junior high by accident. She saw a movie about industrial accidents during the first day of metals class and that was enough.
