"The mile relay is open to the fastest men on the team

Last week in the Michigan State Relays the team of
Doug Hennibar, Dave Furst, Jeff McLeod, and Dave Wil-

have to pump one of those men.

Paul Zielinski and Howard Neely, and the boys from East
Lansing have a strong sprinter in Lean Williams who

One person from Michigan State who will be notable by t
his absence will be world class sprinter Marshall Dill who
is ineligible this semester. "Dill missing means more to
State than just poin'ts lost, he also affects team morale,"
summarized Michigan mentor Harvey. y
Regarding the outcome of the meet Harvey stated,'
"We're not going to die if we lose, but we'd like to win and
revenge last year's loss. On paper I think we can beat
them, but in track you have to run."

It is expected that North Da-

Robbie Moore. Waselovich and
his back-up, Gordy Hangsleben,
both have a 5.2 goals against

that is deceptive.
"THEY HAVE two good
goalies but their averages don't
tell their true ability," added
Farrell. "They are only as good
as the team is in front of them."
Backing Farrell's observation
is the fact that Waselovich has

said, "We'd like to have won

we're happy to win."
The singles matches started

Eisner said that Vuillie played

"We have the best teams inj
