GOOD OMEN FOR BIG TENS:
By JAMIE TURNER
YPSILANTI - If happiness is win-
ning track meets even though your
squad is weakened by injury and ill-
ness, coach Jack Harvey must be satis-
fied with his team's performance in the
Central Collegiate Conference Indoor
Track Championships held here the
past two days.
With a number of his best athletes
stricken with the flu bug and distance
runner Mike McGuire still out with a
stress fracture, Michigan nevertheless
was able to outpoint the host Eastern
Michigan team 132 to 112.5.
"It was nice to win this," said Harvey
afterwards, "but the Big Ten Meet in
two weeks is really our big meet. We've
got a lot of work to do, but there were
some good performances."
The Wolverines showed all-around
strength throughout the meet, and were
particularly solid in the field events,
where they placed first in both the-long
jump and pole vault and grabbed third
in the shot put.
"(Jim)tStokes did real well (in the
pole vault) and (James) Henry did an
excellent job in the long jump," stated
Harvey. "It was a difficult place to
jump (for Henry) due to the shortness
of the track and the condition."
Henry easily passed the rest of the
competition with a jump of 24-5%,
almost two feet better than the runner-
up. Stokes meanwhile, set the only meet
record with an effort of 16-7. Randy
Foss finished third in the shot, losing to
the eventual Most Valuable field per-
former, Bruno Pualetto of Central
The biggest problem for the
Wolverines during the meet was incon-
sistent showings in the middle distance
races. Expected to clean up in the mile,
440, 880, one and two mile relays, the
best Michigan could do was Tim
Thomas' second in the 880.
"We need a lot of work in the middle
distances," said Harvey, but we've got
two weeks and we should improve."
Arnett Chisholm won an exciting 60
yard high hurdles by one tenth of a
second over Kevin Jackson of Eastern
in a time of 7.3. The closeness of the
race was testified to by the fact that the
eight finalists were separated by a
margin of only four tenths of a second.
The other Michigan winner was Bill
Donakowski, who came back from a
disappointing fourth in the mile to win
the two-mile run in a time of 8:53.35.
Harvey was voted coach of the meet
for his efforts. He now comes back to
Ann Arbor to prepare to host the
Michigan Invitational next weekend
before he takes his charges to the Big
Ten meet in West Lafayette.

izza & grinders! The home pool advantage which State
swimming coach Dick Fetters admitted
S. State & Packard-995-0232 to before the meet was quite evident.
nfrom i I a.m. to a.m."Michigan swam better than I thought
open they could," said the Spartan coach.
FREE DELIVERIES from 4:30 p.m. Among the standouts for Michigan
was frosh sprinter Fernando Canales.
Canales set two pool records: the first
in the 200-yard freestyle with a time of
1:39.04, and the second in the 100-yard
freestyle with a time of 45.60. Canales
also anchored the victorious 400-yard
free relay team which finished with a
time of 3:09.14.
OTHER HIGHLIGHTS of the meet
included a double first place perform-
ance by sophomore Kevin Morgan in
the 200-yard individual medley
(1:56.16) and the 200-yard breaststroke
(2:12.04). Sophomore Scott Weir
finished first in the 200-yard backstroke
(1:57.77) easily beating out State's
Mike Rado. Weir also led off the
Wolverine's first place 400-yard medley
The Wolverine tankers will now have
two weeks to gear up to the Big Ten's to
be held at Illinois. Although Indiana is
the probable winner, the race for
second place will be nip and tuck.
Among those that Michigan must con-
tend with is Wisconsin, who earlier this
season beat Michigan by one point.
"It's going to be a very close race for
second place this year. Michigan will be
pursuing Wisconsin all the way," said
Spartan coach Fetters.
