Call 753-3739 Gymnastics: Doing very well By Corey Wiles Sports Editor On Wednesdayaftemoon,lhada chat with Eric Malmberg, head coach of the gymnastics squad at Cortland State. Graduating from East Strousberg in 1974, Malmberg was an assistant gymnastics coach at Army for three years. In 1977, he came to Cortland State and became the youngest head coach in the country at age twenty four. He has been here ever since. I asked Malmberg how the season has been for himself and the squad. He replied \the best ever. \There are seventeen quality gymnasts on the squad and this year the team has scored over 270. This has never hap- pened before. A 270 overall score eq u~Js out to a score of nine for eve- ryb()dythatcompeted. This year has bee!l outstanding and there are a lot of returning sophomores and juniors next year. Malmberg said that eve- ryb()dy has had a \career\ year and that it has really been fun being on top. 1'he Cortland State gymnastics program has become a dynasty. In the la..st five years, Cortland State has won Four Division II and III titles. The team's goal is to compete in the Division I regionals. \We will probably place in the 12th seed of all the programs in the country this year,\ said Malmberg. \Only the first ten seeds go to theregionals.\ But Malmberg said this will give the squad a definite goal that is reachable by next year. Cortland would be the only Division III team to compete. Malmberg said that the only changes he would make would be some of the scheduling. \Meets should not be scheduled over Spring Break,\ said Malmberg. \We don't get the crowds that support the team.\ But the gymnastics team has been getting the crowds this season and will continue in the future. When yoU're a team that is one of the best in the country, it draws attention. ' .. Rangers skate to 1st title in 48 years By Doug Friedle Staff Writer They say good things come to those who wait, for the New York Rangers the wait is over. For the frrst time in 48 years, the Rangers have c !inched the Patrick Division regu- lar season title with a win over Que- bec on Tuesday night. With this title under their belts, the Rangers both old and new have their eyes set on the playoffs. Newly acquired Bernie Nichols feels his new teammates have one of the best chances to take the Stanley Cup. In a interview given with the National, Nichols was quoted as saying \It meafls no one was better than us in the division.\ Nichols and the Rangers chances improve considering the fact that a first[>lace fmish insures them home- ice tluoughout the Patrick Division pia yt>'ff games. This could turn outto be a very important fact when you considerthe Rangers will likely face the Pittsburgh Penguins and Mario Lemieux. For those of you who don't remember, it was the Penguins who knocked the Rangers out in the first round last year. The Rangers should have few problems as they head to the play- offs with the exception of a few injuries: Cory Wilson-sprained shoulder, Mark Hardy-right ankle, Ron Greschner-fractured toe.
