RELAY TRIUMPH AVERTS WHITEWASH
Thinclads come up flat in NCAA's

By DAVE RENBARGER
The way Michigan track-coach Jack
Harvey had it figured, the Wolverines
would need a liberal dose of good for-
tune as well as some top notch perfor-
mances on the track in order to finish
among the top ten at last weekend's
NCAA Outdoor Championships.
THE WAY things turned out at the
three-day extravaganza in Eugene,
Ore., the Wolverines' luck was all bad,
and their performances weren't much
better.
With a disappointing total of four
points, Harvey's 11-man contingent left
the meet in a tie for 31st, deadlocked
with the likes of Manhattan, Richmond
and New Mexico.
"We sure expected to do a lot better
than we did," said Harvey, whose team
placed sixth in the nation indoors last
March. "In retrospect, I think that
making the top ten was a lofty goal, but
it was definitely a disappointing meet."

It was the bottom of the eighth,
Michigan had a two run lead, the
Wolverines' ace pitcher made a relief
appearance to quell the enemy rally,
but, to no avail.
Michgan, Big Ten and Mideast
Regional baseball championssended its
season with a sudden 7-6 loss to North
Carolina in the College World'Series in
Omaha, Nebraska.
The Wolverines owned a 6-4 lead
going ino the bottom of the eighth, but
disaster struck and Michigan could not
recover in time to avert elimination in
the tournament.
Daily sportswriter Jamie Turner
went to Omaha to cover the Wolverines'
action from opening pitch to final-out
pop up. His report of the game as well
as a special column appear on page 16.

Hennigar, Charles Crouther, Arnett
Chisholm and James Grace provided
the lone bright spot for the Wolverines,
as they took fourth place with record-
breaking timd of :39.92. The swift
clocking is the fastest relay ever
registered by any Big Ten team. Even-
tual NCAA champion USC won the
event in :39.31.
"They ran a super race," said Har-
vey of the quartet which has won the
Big Ten 400 meter relay three years in a

row. "We don't have the sheer sprint
speed that some of the other teams
have. We just polished everything down
to the fine wire in terms of making our
(baton) passes."
But the rest of the team looked
anything but polished, as the usually
fearsome foursome of Grace, Bill
Donakowski, Mike Lattany and Jim
Stokes all failed to score in their in-
dividual specialties.
GRACE, IN THE 400 meter dash, and

Donakowski, in the 10,000 meters, both
came up flat in the final races as
Wolverines, finishing well out of the
money.
But, with a tiny bit of luck, high jum-,
per Lattany and pole vaulter Stokes
could have managed a few points that
would have pushed Michigan's team
.score much closer to respectability.
Both finished seventh, one place away
from scoring.
Lattany cleared the bar at 7-1, but
only on his second attempt. Had he gone
over on attempt number one, he would
have finished third and picked up six
points.
Stokes, who cleared 17 feet in the
qualifying phase of the vaulting, bowed
out after making 16-6 in the finals, to tie
for seventh. UCLA's Mike Tully set a
meet record with a leap of 18-1%14,
helping the Bruins tie Texas-El Paso
for second place in the standings.
