326 SOUTH STATE
ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN

By MARCIA MERKER
Anyone who m e r e 1 y reads
headlines to keep tabs on track
news will not have heard of
Michigan track. Thesquad basic-
ally consists of very good un-
knowns who performed diligently
enough to finish second in indoor
and outdoor Big Ten '73 com-
petition.
Since the name J. Dixon Farm-
er first appeared two years ago
as mentor of the Michigan crew,
the Wolverines have jumped from
eighth to second in the Big Ten
track standings. In '74, Farmer
sees a good chance of gaining
Indiana's top Big Ten position,
despite the loss of four dedicated
Michigan seniors.
The standout field events men
will all return in '74. This past
season Steve Adams, '74, won
the Big Ten outdoor discus title
and the Big Ten indoor shot put
with a 58-6 throw, 2 under his
best '73 mark.
The high jumping combination
of sophomores Mike Nowacki and
Doug Gibbs finished 2-3 respec-
tively but failed to place in the
outdoor competition. In the in-
door meet, Nowacki cleared 6-11,
but his outdoor leaps were not
nearly as good. Gibbs crossed
over the bar when placed at 6-10
at the indoors, but has also run
into outdoor trouble.
* WNA

Coached by George Wade, pole
vaulters Terry Hart and Ed
Kulka managed 15-0, while cohort
Bill Heth's best is 14-6.
The triple jump was another
field highlight for Michigan. Dur-
ing the season Abe Butler sur-
passed Wisconsin's Pat Onyango
in the triple jump. Until that
time Onyango had not been beat-
en in Big Ten competition.
Also returning to Farmer's
tutelege is Kim Rowe. Rowe,
ranked number two indoor in the
NCAA's, set a new 440 world's

with a 47.2 clocking in winning
the Big Ten championship. Rowe
also romped to the outdoor crown
with a 46.0 to match the Mich-
igan record held by Kent Ber-
nard.
But the Wolverines will be
missing some important stars
who have b e c o m e household
words to Maize and Blue track
partisans during their four year
stay.
Foremost among these will be
h i g h hurdler GodfreyMurray,
who took with him five Big Ten
titles. In last May's Big Ten
championship, Murray got off to
a bad start and tripped and fell
over the last hurdle while at-
tempting to make up the differ-
ence.
Not content with just Big Ten
laurels, M u r r a y, a Jamacian
Olympian, finished third in the
'73 NCAA indoors, clocking 7.1 for
the 60 high hurdles. Farmer is
counting on Mel Reeves to re-
place Murray in this event.

With the graduation of three
seniors, Al Cornwell and co-cap-
tains Greg Syphax and Eric
Chapman, the record setting
mile-relay team has only Rowe
remaining. The unit last year
won both the outdoor and indoor
titles.
With Chapman and Cornwell
graduating, Bob Mills and Bill
Bolster will be called upon to
take over in the half mile. In-
doors Mills clocked 1:53.9. Last
spring's Central Collegiate Cham-
pionships Bolster was timed at
a 4:04.0 mile. Coach Farmer be-
lieves Bolster will make it under
four minutes this season.
Besides Bolster,'Michigan sup-
ports two improving distance
runners, Rick Schott and Jon
Cross. During the indoor season
Schott got down to an 8:52.3 two-
mile and in the Big Ten out-
doors, he placed second in
14:00.2. Coach Farmer recruited
Greg Meyer from Grand Rapids,
who ran the fastest Michigan
high school two-mile in 9:05.0
and the mile in 4:14.0 this season.
With the returning long dis-
tance runners, Rowe, the field
events men and the new recruits,
the '74 track season just may pull
Dixon Farmer to a '74 Big Ten
Championship. The indoor season
begins in late January and will

Michigan will host the '74 Big

Swimming
but grac
By CHUCK BLOOM
For Michigan swimming, 1972-
73 was the year of the Flying
Freshman, Tom Szuba. 1973-74
should be the year of the Sizzling
Sophomore, Tom Szuba.
The Dearborn, Mich., resident
has meant as much to Coach
Gus Stager's tankers as did Mark
Spitz to Indiana,-David Edgar to{
Tennessee, or Brian Job to Stan-
ford. Last season Szuba set five
new varsity records, won one Big
Ten individual title, and took a
pair of thirds, in the NCAA meet
in Knoxville, Tenn. He culminat-
ed his brilliant initial campaign
with a victory in the 400-yard in-
dividual medley at the AAU In-
door Short Course Nationals in
Cincinnati last April with the
second fastest time ever swam
for that event. It was the first
national champion for Michigan
swimming in four years.
On top of that Szuba is expect-
ed to go to Belgrade, Yugoslavia
for the World Aquatic Games in
early September. This would be
quite a haul for the Wolverines
since Stager is the men's coach
and diving mentor Dick Kimball
will head the United States' div-
ing delegation.
But Szuba's presence on the
team meant more than just
championships a n d individual
glory. "Tom has had a steadying
influence on this team," Stager
said last season. "Anything you
ask of Tom, he will do, whether
in practice or in a meet."
"Tom is probably the hardest
worker on this team and it paid
off. I expected him to be na-
tion champion before he left
here, but not in his freshman
year," Stager conceded.
For Szuba there is an NCAA
championship and the 1976 Olym-
pic Games. In 1972, Szuba, as a
high schooler placed sixth in the
Olympic Trials in the 400-meter
individual m e d 1 e y. But most
swimming experts say that Szuba
will have an excellent chance
for a gold medal in Montreal.
However, as Stager was quick
to point out, one swimmer doth

not a team make. Last season's
squad was one of the finest
Stager has had in recent years,
amasing a 8-1 dual meet record.
The only loss was a 65-51 setback
