V U Although teams like Southern Cal,-
W 1 e and Texas-El Paso should do battle for
W o verin1 the team title, the 11 Michigan
representatives at the 1978 NCAA Out-
d door Track and Field Championships
th in la d s will certainly make their presence felt
tnineiain the star-studded meet in Eugene,
Ore,
e high ARMED WITH two powerful relay
teams and four individual Big Ten
champions, the Wolverines will be
shooting to crack the top ten in three
gay affair that begins tomorrow.
"We hope to score points in the pole
vault, 10,000 meters and 400 meters and
the 400-meter relay," said coach Jack
Harvey. "If we do. we should be in the

top ten."
Pole vaulter Jim Stokes is again ex-
pected to duel with indoor record holder
Mike Tully from UCLA. In the indoor
championships Stokes cleared 17-1% to
secure second place, then watched
Tully soar to the record height of 18-514.
Since that March afternoon in Detroit,
Stokes has cleared 17 feet on several
occasions outside.
10,000 meter man Bill Donakowski is
expected to be the first American
across the tape, and is shooting for a
second or third overall, according to his
coach Ron Warhurst. "But you never
know," Warhurst added. "Billy might
run out of his tree and win it all. He's
been running super all year."

SENIOR CO-CAPTAIN James Grace
has already clocked a :46.0 400 meters
and should be well in the running in that
event.
Dough Hennigar, Arnett Chishom
and Charles Crouther will join Grace to
form a swift 400-meter relay squadron.
The quartet earlier turned in a :40.05
time.
The Wolverines warmed up for the
nationals last weekend by sweeping to
victory in the 22-team Central
Collegiate Conference Championships,
outdistancing the rest of the field by 34
points.
AIA signs
M's Baxter
By DAVE RENBARGER
Former Michigan basketball stand-
out Dave Baxter yesterday signed to
play with the Athletes in Action. The
announcement was made at a press
conference in California, home base for
the amateur club.
The AIA squad is a branch of Campus
Crusade for Christ and plays exhibition
games with teams from all over thg
country. Last December, the A A
knocked the Wolverines in Anaheim,
Cal.
In making the decision, Baxter has
apparently forsaken any attempt in pro
basketball, at least for the time being.
Baxter was -unavailable for comment
following the announcement, and fur-
ther details of the agreement are
unknown. The 6-3 guard is scheduled to
return home late today.
Six weeks ago, Baxter, who this past
season established a new school record
for assists, indicated that he was in-
terested in the AIA, but would rather
wait until after the NBA draft to see
what might happen and possibly get a
tryout.
Since that time, however, he has paid
several visits to California, and ap-
parently changed his mind.
The Michigan coaches, when reached
last night, expressed their pleasure
with the development. "He's been out
there quite a bit lately," said Johnny
Orr. "He's all gung ho for it."
"It'll be a good experience for him,"
added'assistant Bill Frieder. "And it
still leaves the avenues to the pros
open."
Besides Baxter, the AA landed three
oter players, including Arkansas'
Marvin Delph and Purdue's Eugene
Parker.
