Ah, the easy life of a cross-country coach at
Michigan! All you do is program your two-leg-
ged machines to perform the easy task of run-
ning 4.3 miles in the rain, and they respond in
grand fashion.
Michigan coach Ron Warhurst had few prob-
lems getting his harriers in gear Sunday as
they competed in the ninth annual Springbank
International road races in London, Ont.
As he demonstrated Sunday, Wolverine Greg
Meyer, is definitely a runner to mention when
you start thinking of all-Big Ten and all-Ameri-
ca teams.
RUNNING W H A The called "One of
the strongest races I've ever run in my life,"
Meyer battled through a steady drizzle to place
second with a time of 19:57 in what is consid-
ered one of the premier road races in North




Overcoming a wipeout in which he slid the
width of the road, Meyer chased Britisher Nick
Rose, who broke the existing course record by
ten seconds with his clocking of 19:31, for most
of the race.
"I felt strong, strong all the way," said Mey-
er. "I never really felt bad. I couldn't believe
it, it felt great."
Probably the most astonishing statistic about
the race, was the Wolverines' overall improve-
ment on their 1975 times.
Remember that this is a cross country team
that won the Big Ten and Central Collegiate
Conference championships, and was a major
factor in the indoor and outdoor track cham-
pionships in the same conferences.
WITH ALL that success, one would figure
these distance runners must be pretty good.
That's true, but there's always room for im-

In last year's race, Michigan's fifth finisher
in the race (29th overall) recorded a time of
21:08. Now you'd look all the way down to the
Wolverines tenth man (39th overall) and find
that he ran four seconds faster than last year's
fifth man.
This is only the second meet of the season
and already the time spread between Michi-
gan's top four runners is only thirty-one sec-
This should drop later in the year when num-
ber five man Billy Donakowski gets into racing
shape and Jon Cross, Doug Sweazy, and Jack
Sinclair develop consistency.
SEVERAL OF the Wolverine freshmen show-
ed signs of becoming keys to future cross coun-
try success.
Competing in only their second meet of their
college careers, Dave Lewis and Dan Heikkin-

:on test
en turned in times of 20:42 and 20:46.
"They really came on strong in the last mile,"
said Warhurst. "That shows that when we start
getting into some longer races that these two!
guys are really going to help us."
Jon Cross, who took last year off to begin
dental school, ran his most impressive race
since his return to competition. Running free
and easy throughout the race, Cross looks like
he's ready to start picking up some of the
slack that was created by the illness of Mike
Doug Sweazy was Michigan's other standout,
as he completed the circuit in 20:24.
Overshadowed by Michigan's fine individual
performances was the team trophy the squad
brought across the border. The Wolverines scor-
ed 19 points to outdistance the British Milers
Club for team honors.

Optimism prevails before
women's volleyball opener


organizers reporters

The 1976 edition of Women's Volleyball
gets underway tonight as Michigan com-
petes in a triangular meet against Central
Michigan and Western Michigan at Kalama-
Stressing fundamentals and conditioning
throughout the preseason drills, Michigan
coach Sandy Vong is very optimistic about
the upcoming season, promising to improve
upon last year's 8-17 mark.
"We are definitely stronger at this point
in the season than in previous years,"
stated Vong, now in his fourth year of coach-
ing here.
THIS YEAR'S VARSITY team is extreme-
ly young, with five freshwomen, five sopho-
mores and one junior. As a result, coach
Vong has found it difficult to assess the
true caliber of the team.
"I know that we will be good," he re-
marked, "but it's impossible to tell just
how good at this point. It all depends upon
how fast some of our younger players
Included among those five sophomores
are three returning letter winners from last
year. 4-11 playmaker Jamie Spohn will team

with spiker Ginny Whitter and 5-11 center-
blocker Carel Pennington to form the nu-
cleus of this year's team.
Coach Vong pointed to the overall inex-
perience of the team as its major weakness.
"Everything depends on how they can react
under game situations. They must also
learn to play together as a team. Volley-
ball is such a team-oriented sport," he
ON THE OTHER HAND, Vong noted sev-
eral strengths of his volleyballers which
he hopes will offset their inexperience.
"We are a tough serving club," he said.
In addition, the coach expressed his pleas-
ure with the movement and positioning of
his players.
Regarding tonight's opening tri-meet, Vong
expects a tough match, since both Western
and Central are intra-state rivals compet-
ing with the Wolverines for state post-sea-
son honors.
Looking ahead at the schedule of games
to come, Coach Vong noted the strength of
Michigan State, number one in the state
and number nine in the nation last year.
The women volleyballers will face the Spar-
tans in East Lansing on November 9.

YPSILANTI - Barbara Sel-
den staged an exciting three-set
come-from-behind victory yes-
terday to highlight the Michigan
women's tennis team's 9-0 shut-
out of Eastern Michigan.
It was the second win for the
Michigan women, who have yet
to drop a match this year under
new coach John Atwood.
For most of Selden's team-
mates, yesterday's matches
were just a chance to tune up
for stiffer competition in the
coming weeks. It was a two-
set afternoon for the Wolver-E
ines, with few losing more
than a single game en route to
easy victories.

current number one player,'
