Michigan track opponents be-
ware - the Wolverines aret
ready to start winning cham-
pionships again!+
The 1976 season proved to be
one of the most successful in
Michigan track history, as the'
Rthinclads captured thme Big Ten
and Central Collegiate confer-
ence championships both in-
doors and outdoors. Add to that
cross country titles in the same
two conferences and you have
a powerful midwestern track
team.
One of the best thines
about 'the "double triple
crown" is that it was accom-
plished with young talent. On-
ly two runners that scored
points in either of the
championship meets are
gone from the '76 squad.
Taking an overall look at
the 1977 team, only two major,
weaknesses surface. Both the
triple jump and the 600 yard
run are areas that will cause

have anybody to run. If we
run somebody it would be a
quarter - mil r (McLeod) go-
ing up or a half-miler (Furst)
coding down," said Harvey.
These two weak spots
shouldn't cause too many
problems for the Wolveri'es,
since every other event is
two and three deep in high
grade talent.
The ticket office has hockey
ti 'kets on sale for all re-
m -Iing home games. Ticket
manager Al Renfrew said
that tickets usually are not
sold until the day of the
gam but due to the success
of this year's team the ticket
department wants to make
sure that students get the
first chance at obtaining tick-
ets. The ticket office is openj
from 8:30 to 5:00, daily.

will, be Big Ten champion
Furst in the half mile, title
contender Andy Johnson in
the 1000 yard run, and Jim
Baumgartner and Mark Fos-
ter in either the 1000 or the
half mile.
Michigan's other powerful
area on the track will be in
the hurdles and sprints.
Sophomore transfer Dwight
Jones turned some heads at the
team's intrasquad meet in De-
cember by flashing to a time
of 6.1 in the 60 yard dash.
"I think Dwight has proved
that he can step right in and
run with the best of them,"
said Harvey. We look for him
and Doug Hennigar (second In
the Big Ten in both the 60 and
300 yard dashes) to be defi-
nite factors in the Big Ten
meet.
Besides Jones, Michigan has
lennigar and hurdler sprint-
er Arnett Chisholm in the 60.
Both Jones and Hennigar will
compete in the 300 yard dash,
while Chisholm returns to his
best event, the 70 yard high
hurdles.
Chisholm will be joined by
sophomores Charles Crouth-
er and Don Wheeler plus
freshman Gary Hicks in the
hurdles to give Michigan one
of the most powerful shuttle
hurdle relay teams in the I
country.
The 440 yard dash will also1
be astrong event for the thin-
clads. Senior co - captain Mc-
Leod will head the list of
speedy quarter - milers. Mc-
Leod was a member of the mile
relay unit that took third in
the 1976 indoor meet.. Bolster-
ing the 440 crew will be junior
James Grace.

Hckleby will be returning to

meet as a freshman. Huckleby again looks like the class of

ERNIE GRUNFELD (22) of Tennessee drives hard to the basket as Jack Givens of Ken-
tucky pivots to block off his drive. Grunfeld's 22 points paced the Volunteers to a 71-67
upset victory over the No. 2 ranked Wildcats before a sellout crowd at Kentucky's Rupp
Arena. Givens was the games top scorer with 23 points. Both teams now have identical
9-2 records.

Moving into its Big Ten sched-
ule this week, the Michigan
wrestling team, sporting a 3-0
dual meet record, is startingj
1977 in a strong position.
An important factor in - its
strong start this season has
been the willing and able pegk-
formance of substitutes off the
bench turning in needed match
victories.
Subs, while playing an im
portant role in practice, often
do not appear in the limelight
of meet action.
"IT'S HARD FOR freshmen
to break into our tough line-
up," Michigan coach Bill Johan-
nesen said of newcomers to the
team. "These are fellows' we
recruit heavily and we hope
they figure in our future."
Occasionally second-stringers
get a chance to make their
mark. Such a case is this week's
team Champ of the Week, sen-
ior George Kelley.

man at 158 pounds up to this

ANOTHER FRESHMAN, Steve
Fraser, who wrestles at 177 be-
hind team captain Mark John-
son, looks to be one of Johan-
nesen's better prospects.
"We were glad we could use
Joseph," remarked Johannesen
"Both he and Fraser lost tough
first matches in the Midlands
Tournament but went on to per-.
form well."
Johannesen also has some-
thing in store at heavyweight.
"We'll use ex-footballers Bob
Taylor or Lewis Smith at hea-
vyweight. They'll have a chal-
lenge match this week and the

imatches this. Saturday," the
coach said. "We expect Taylor
to do a lot, he has great po-
iential."
CHALLENGE MATCHES play
an integral part of the wrest-
ler's life. Based on their per-
formance in practice a ladder
is set up naming the first, sec-
ond, third-stringers and so on.
To advance, a wrestler must
defeat the wrestler above him.
To get into the starting lineup,
he must tally two such victor-
ies.
