to have Patrick Martin intercept his pass in the end zone on the final play of
the game.

The Michigan Daily-Sunday, November 13, 1977-Page 9


For the Michigan cross country team,
it was all a matter of pride.
Competing in yesterday's NCAA
District IV Championships at the Uni-
versity Golf Course, the R1 ueharriers
-were out to prove that they were a bit
better than their shabby fourth place
finish at last week's Big Ten meet sug-
THE WOLVERINES did just that,
finishing a close second in the 22-team
field with 89 points. Big Ten champion
Wisconsin won' the 10,000 meter chase
with 87. Illinois (97), Indiana (114) and
Cleveland State (132) rounded out the
top five finishers.t
"They were running for their pride1
out there today, and I think they gotf
most of it back," said Michigan coacht

ers reg
Ron Warhurst after the meet. "We
really bounced back from last week. We
were in it all the way."
Junior Mike ,McGuire, one of two
runners in the 130-man field sporting
panty hose in the 32 degree weather,
echoed his coach's sentiments.
"We bounced back pretty well," said
McGuire after placing 14th in the race
as Michigan's second man. "We knew
we were better than last week's perfor-
mance indicated. A win would have
been nice, but we gave 'em a run for
their money."
INDIVIDUALLY, Michigan's top
runner Billy Donakowski gave Cleve-
land State's ace, Marc Hunter a run
for his money for the first 4.5 miles of
the race running step-for-step all the



way. At that point, however, Hunter
opened up a 50-yard lead on Dona-'
kowski and covered the last mile and
a half uncontested.
Hunter's winning time of 30:52
cracked the course record previously
held by Wolverine Greg Meyer, while.
Donakowski's second place time was
GOING INTO the race, the two
were both tabbed as favorites, al-
though Donakowski was running on
his home course. In the end, it was
Hunter's unexpected ability to run
the hills that gave him the winning
"I had hoped to hurt him on the
hills, but he was a better hill runner
than I thought," said Donakowski,
who cruised to the individual Big Ten
title last week. "He really had it
going orthe downhills."
"'I worked out on the hills a lot
preparing for this meet, and it paid
off," said Hunter. "My race plan was
to make my move at four or five
miles. I didn't want it to come down
to the last hill."
Despite the individual setback,
Donakowskihwas notdisappointed.
"I'm happy with my performance,"

he said, improving upon. his fifth
place finish a year ago. "Sure, I'd
like to have won since this is my last
race here and all, but my main goad
was to qualify for the nationals and-"
now I'm in (the top five individuals '
automatically qualify)."
OTHER Wolverines besides Dona"'
kowski and McGuire to figure in th4,
scoring were Bruce McFee (17th)r
Dave Lewis (24th), and Gary Parena
teau (32nd). Warhurst made special
of McFee's race, as the junior fron

For the third straight year, th c0
Wolverines finished as bridesmaids#-
in this meet. "We'll win this thing ones

Spartans continue winning ways

Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING - The Michigan
State Spartans and their coach
Darrel Rogers may have proved
something yesterday that could fore-
tell the end of the Big Two and the
Little Eight.
Proving that they could annihilate
an opponent in the style of an Ohio
State or Michigan, the Spartans
breezed by winless Northwestern,
44-3 - and the game wasn't as close
as the score indicated.
"Our team doesn't play well,
unless they have to," said Rogers,
"and we got some momentum (in the
second quarter)."
FOR THE second straight week the
Wildcats opened the scoring with an
early field goal. After State came
back with a three pointer of its own,
the rout was on.
Spartan quarterback Eddie Smith
established early that he could pass
at will against the porous Northwest-
ern defense, using his tight end Mark
Brammer for one TD and to set up
another, the Spartans moved to a
quick 24-3 lead.
State's precision ball, control dem-
onstrated itself when, in a two-
minute drill late in the half, Smith

twice tried the same alley-oop play to
split end Kirk Gibson in the end zone.
The second time was the charm as
State waltzed through the second half
tolits final margin of victory.
PERHAPS THE play that typified
the second half was when Spartan
fullback Jim Early ran 60 yards up
the middle to the Wildcat's eight yard
line. Upon reaching the eight, he
promptly fumbled into the end zone

where eight different players tried
their luck at nabbing the pigskin. A
Northwestern player finally fell on
the ball for a touchback.
Rogers was asked who he liked in
this week's Michigan-Ohio State
"We didn't play both of them this
year," he said, "but Michigan plays
well when they have to."
"However, I don't have a predic-
tion right now.
