Stokes tnumphan
paces thinclads
Michigan's top pole vaulter Jim Stokes ran into a little
problem at last Saturday's outdoor track opener that never
once bothered him during this winter's indoor campaign-
the wind.
But the junior from Flint was not about to let Mother
Nature deprive him from taking first place in the Kentucky
Relays, one of seven winning efforts for the Wolverine thin-
Battling a gusting, 30 mph crosswind, Stokes was the
lone vaulter in the seven-man field to clear the initial height
of 15 feet.
Although it seems like a far cry from his indoor
best of 17-x/, Stokes figured that he couldn't expect
much with the adverse conditions.
"You just can't control the pole in wind like that," he
said. "It's hard to get any height at all.
"I can't remember a meet when nobody has been able to
clear the first height like that," he continued. "I've never
seen it so bad."
Being a native of Michigan, Stokes would just as soon
vault indoors anyway.
"I really enjoy the indoor season," he said. "Out-
doors, it's always raining or snowing or something."
The vaulters weren't the only ones having trouble at the
meet, however, as slow times were the rule of the day.
Michigan coach Jack Harvey showed little concern,
pointing out that his team hasn't even been able to practice
outside all year.
"Overall, the meet went just about how I anticipated,'
he remarked. "Give us a couple more weeks outside and'
we'll be in good shape,"
Sprinter James Grace turned in a double victory
for the Blue thinclads. After taking the 200 meter dash
in 27.1, the junior from Detroit teamed up with Doug
Hennigar, Jeff McLeod, and Andy Johnson to win the
sprint medley relay in a 3:20.5 clocking.
The Wolverines placed 1-2 in the shot put as Randy
Foss' 53-5 heave topped teammate Mike Hetbs' 52-3 toss.
Senior co-captain Greg Meyer grabbed another first in.
the 3,000 meter steeplechase, outdistancing the field with a
time of 9:09.4
Rounding out the contingent of victorious Wolverines
were Steve Elliott in the 1500 meters (4:01.0) and Doug
Gibbs in the high jump (6-10).

Nolan Ryan. Period.
Tanana is a 24 year old left-

and an all-star. Ryan is the
flame-throwing righty who alter-
