time of 22.1, a half second behind
winner Gene Thomas of EMU.
Rick Storrey had a fruitful af-
ternoon as he turned in spectac-
ular performances for the Wol-
veines in the individual mile to
capture first place with a 4:15.9
race in which he was never far-
ther behind than third, and to
give the Wolverine two-milere-
lay team the lead in his leg of that
race. Teammates Ken How and
Tom Swan, following Storrey's
lead in the mile, finished second
and fourth respectively.
Continuing the Michigan domi-
nance in the running events, Reg-
gie Bradford and Tom Flagg took
the fourth and fifth spots in the
quarter mile, behind Lorenzo
Montgomery's second place, while
Phil Pyatt and Kirk Hansen fin-
ished third and fourth in the two-
mile.
In the field events, however, the
Wolverines failed to live up to ex-
pectations. Due to the cold condi-
tions,rMichigan's excellent triple
jumper Warren Bechard was
forced to withdraw from the com-
petition with an irritation of a
Chronic knee injury. In that event,
fellow Wolverine I r a Russell
managed to cop fourth place de-
spite foul problems, while in the
long jump he captured third
place with a leap of 22-3%.
Hampered by the lack of spring
in the cold ground, Michigan's
excellent high jumper John Mann
failed to clear his usual 6-10 and
fell to second place behind AATC
star Mike Bowers. Bowers cap-
tured first p la c e easily as he
cleared 6-10 after one miss, and
sailed over the bar at 7-0 on the
first attempt. In his final try at
7-1% he barely missed clearing
the bar, nicking it with his arm.

FOR A FEW HOURS yesterday afternoon, the world of John
Mann and Mike Bowers consisted of a few quick steps and a
thin metal bar raised more than six and a half feet above the
ground.
Mann, Michigan's premier high jumper who jumps with no
shoe on his right foot, and Bowers, the pride of the Ann Arbor
Track Club who jumps with one red shoe and one white one,
continued their battle for local high-jumping supremacy at the
Ann Arbor Relays yesterday.
Bowers won, clearing the bar easily on his first try at
seven feet, just a few minutes after Mann had missed for
the third time at 6-10. Bowers' mark broke his own meet
record of 6-10 set last year, and tied his Ferry Field mark
set in 1968.
A former Michigan trackman, clearly impressed with Bow-
ers' feat, buttoned up his jacket to keep out the wind and shook
his head in admiration. "It's amazing he went that high on a
day like this," he said.
Actually, Bowers had tried to go higher. After he cleared
seven feet, the lanky, red-shoed man had the bar moved up to
7-2. The first time wasn't even close; his leg dragged, and the
bar clanged to the ground. The second time was a little closer,
but still no record.
For his final try, Bowers moved back a couple of steps
and waited a longer time before starting towards the bar.
The extra steps and the extra time helped a little, but not
enough. Bowers barely touched the bar as he went over,
but he touched it enough, and the bar went down, too.
Bowers just lay on his back on the foam cushions on the
far side of the bar for a few .seconds, staring at the blank
space where the bar had been a second before. "Oh, nuts!
Damn it!" were his only comments.
Still, the day was a good one for Bowers, and he came up
smiling a few seconds later. "I love U-M outdoors, too," he told
a group of his fellow AATC members.
For Mann, though, the day was a bit more frustrating.
"I can't make any excuses," Mann said. "I got beat and I
just didn't jump well."
There were some early indications that the day would be a
frustrating one for the sophomore high-jumper. With the bar
at 6-6, Mann missed once before clearing the height. The same
thing happened at 6-8.
"It was hard to stay warm out there. You'd get warmed up
for one jump, and by the time it was your turn to jump again,
you were freezing," Mann said, pulling his sweat clothes over
his shoeless foot.
"I like to get in four or five practice jumps before I
start, too," he continued, "but I didn't take any today andI
guess it might have hurt me a little. But those are no excus-
es. I don't have any excuses."t
But despite the frustration of yesterday's meet, Mann, who
cleared 6-11 indoors this year,'is glad to be back outside. "I'd
rather be outdoors," he said. "It's a lot less confining. You
don't feel so closed in."
There is also probably more danger in jumping with one
bare foot on an indoor floor. There are no splinters on an out-
door track.
"I've jumped without a shoe ever since junior high,"
Mann said, "I guess I was just too cheap to buy another
shoe, and I got into the habit of Jumping barefoot." In talk-
ing about his shoeless style, some of the frustration of the
afternoon faded away and a sort of easy-going confidence
crept back in his voice, the type of confidence it takes to
clear a bar that has been raised more than six and a half
feet time after time.
Besides, how can you feel bad about losing to a guy who
jumps seven feet on a cold day and wears a red shoe?

-- The script for yesterday's 13-5
victory over Cincinnati closely re-
sembled the one written by the
stickmen on Wednesday when
they bested Defiance 16-1. They
built up a formidable first half
lead and coasted the rest of the
way.
Leading the scoring for Michi-
gan was Steve:,Hart, who garnered
4 goals, and close behind was Dick
Dean with 3 goals and 1 assist.
I,Overall, Coach Bob Kaman was
quite pleased with the play of his
team, saying after the" game that
the , only reason Cincinnati got
any goals at all was because he
substituted so liberally. He also
called goalie Jay Johnson "the
finest goalie in the Midwest."
