likewise will be making his last

1159 saves so far in playing ev-

down 'to Columbus, Ohio for the Big 10 Track
Championships.
In Columbus, the Wolverines will show off their
mile relay team of Kim Rowe (48.3), Eric Chap-
Iman (48.9), Reggie Bradford (48.6), and Gerg
Syphax (47.9), which broke the school record with
a 3:13.7 clocking. This marks the fastest time in
the Big 10 this year.
Also leading the way will be Godfrey Murray,
one of the nation's leading hurdlers, who has tied
the collegiate record for the 10 high hurdles (8.1),
and tied the former world record for 55 meter
hurdles (7.1).
The final field event concerning Michigan ath-
letes is another pivotal point. The high jump will
send Michigan's John Mann against Pat Matz-
dorf, Wisconsin's world record holder, and Indi-
ana's Dennis Adama. The school record holder at
7-1 last season, Mann has been consistently
around 6-10. He needs to clear 6-11 to qualify for
the NCAA finals and he has proven himself under
pressure.
Gene Brown, second in the Big 10 last year and
fifth at the NCAA's, will be the lone Wolverine
representative in the 60 yard dash. Brown has
taken off the last, two weeks due to a leg injury,

but has the ability to come back strong and place
in the event which should be won by MSU's world-
record holder, Herb Washington (5.8).
After running his first 300 of his career in an
impressive 31.3, Greg Syphax will attempt to score
in the event which should belong to another pend-
ing world-record holder from MSU, Marshall Dill
(29.5). In the 440, Michigan will be sending Kim
Rowe, who has the third fastest time (48.3),
against a. fine field, which includes defending
champion, Jimmie Harris.
The hurdles could be Michigan's key event. It
is the only race on the track which pits MSU,
Wisconsin, and Michigan head-to-head with
strong competitors. Murray is the strong favorite
to win the 70 highs but the Wolverines key will be
the performance of Mel Reeves (8.4) in the highs
and lows. He has the third fastest high hurdle
time and he has beaten all of the competitors ex-
cept for Murray and Greg Johnson (8.3). He ranks
second in- the lows (7:8) with many other runners
and a strong performance could send Michigan
on their way.
This week marks the last attempt for runners
to qualify for the NCAA Championships which will
once again, be held at Cobo Hall in Detroit on
March 10 and 11. With eleven Wolverines already
qualified, including the mile and two mile relays,
and at least three others with strong possibilities,
knee, Mann could capture the title to aid the
Wolverine cause.
