Washington track team as they
dropped their first outdoor meet
of the season, 84-52 in Seattle yes-
The lopsided score was not real-
ly indicative of the Wolverines' ef-
forts, however, but mirrored an
extremely strong finish on the part
of the Washington competitors in
the field events, placing 1-2 in the

On the infield, Michigan did
manage to rack up a few points as
freshman Steve Adams placed in
two events, capturing the second
spot in the shot put with a 54-91/
heave and third in the discus with
a 155-9 toss.
John Mann displayed his one
shoe on - one shoe off form to
take first in the high jump with
a 6-8 leap. In the pole vault Lar-
ry Wolfe, still trying to come back
from an injury, managed a tie for
second, clearing the bar at 14-6.

double placer, capturing the third
spots in both the triple and long
But things were a little brighter
on the track though as the Wol-
verines displayed fine speed in sev-
eral of the events.
Especially exciting for Michigan
was the double first place finishes
of star sprinter Gene Brown.
Brown, coming off a fine fifth
place finish in the 60 yard dash in
last week's NCAA indoor track
finals, won the 100 yard dash in
9.7 and the 220 in 21.4.
Rick Storrey, one of the Wolver-
ines' fine middle distance men,
also was a double placer, captur-
ing seconds in both the mile and

and 1:52.8 respectively. Mike
Pierce finished right behind Stor-
rey in the mile with a fine time
of 4:09.6.
In the 440, team captain Lo-

with a fine 48.4 clocking, whilel
his teammates Brown, Greg Spy-

The Michigan ruggers barrelled
to a 21-6 victory over host Wind-
sor, yesterday afternoon. Despite'
30 mile-an-hour winds and a slip-
pery field, the Wolverines domi-
nated play for most of the contest.
Windsor drew first blood on a
4penalty kick by George Pelicko-
witch early in the first half. Michi-
gan came right back with a try by
Tom Kuzma but the kick into the
teeth of the wind was off. Hustling
Ron Smith scored a few minutes
later and the kick by Chris Penno-
yer was good.
0 Windsor added another penalty
kick near the close of the half,
making the 'score 8-6 at intermis-
sion with Michigan in the lead.
The first twenty minutes of the
second half was a scoreless stand-
off, with both teams plagued by
windblown passes and boomer-
Aanged kicks. But in the closing
minutes it was all Michigan.
Cleland Chile recovered a ball in
the goal area for a try and Penno-
yer made theconversion after the
try. Tomn Webster scored a try a
few minutes later, but this time
Pennoyer's kick hit the goal post.

career try, bulled over with just

over a minute to go,,and Pennoyer
converted a long kick, placed only
five yards from the inbound line.'
This finished the scoring at 21-6
in favor of the Wolverines.
Captain Terry Larrimer was on
the whole "pleased with the win."
The scrum, less experienced than
the backs, was having some prob-
lems with grabbing the ball and
getting it to the backs. The passing
in general, affected by gusty
winds, and numb hands, was less
than spectacular. But both teams
played under the same conditions,
with the better team definitely



coming out on top.
