Wangler's uture is a '?'

Football season has ended but the
questions linger about next season. Is
Steve Smith, the highly sought-after
prep quarterback from Grand Blanc,
going to be Michigan's starting quar-
. r,


terback? That is, if he comes here in the
first place. How about a B.J. Dickey or
a Rich Hewlett, both excellent at run-
ning the option? Inevitably, the
question turns to John Wangler, the
quarterback who stole the show for
Michigan last season.
Wangler, who suffered a crunching
blow to his knee in the Gator Bowl, has
a year of eligibility remaining.
However, the injury was so severe that
Wangler may not be able to play foot-
ball again, let alone play next year.
"IT WAS A significant knee injury,"
said Michigan coach Bo Schembechler.
About Wangler's return, Bo pointed
out, "it would be difficult for him. We
have to proceed cautiously here. He's'
not eliminated (from the quarterback
picture). You never want to say no but
you've got to be realistic."
Always being an optimist, Wangler
disagres with Bo's assessment. "I'll be
back. The doctors are really optimistic.
It was a clean tear. They didn't have to
do any reconstructive surgery," said
THE FINAL arbiter in Wangler's

case, team physician Gerald O'Connor,
says the jury is still out. "It's too early
to make any statements ... John had a
significant injury to his knee. To make
any definite statement about next year,
you can't tell anything," said O'Connor.
In other developments, Schem-
bechler would not comment whether
former middler guard Tim Davis will
return to his alma mater as a coach.
AND ABOUT the rumors of defensive
coordinator Bill McCartney becoming
Michigan State's head football coach,
"Bill is perfectly happy here. If a head
coaching job at a major university is
available, he might be interested," Bo
McCartney, meanwhile, shed some
light on the situation. "I applied for the
(MSU) job. I haven't heard from them.
That's the first time I have ever applied
for a head coaching job."
"I'm extremely happy here. I love
coaching for Bo Schembechler. I don't
have any designs on leaving. But if the
opportunity came to coach at a Big Ten
school, I'd be interested," concluded


Women tracksters
rewrite record book
Seven Field House records were set Saturday as the Michigan women's track
team overwhelmed Kent State and Macomb Community College, 156-51-24, respec-
tively, in a triangular meet at the Track and Tennis Building Saturday.
Establishing new marks were Wolverines Lorri Thorton in the long jump
(18'6'%2"),\Joanna Bullard in the high jump (5'9"), Renee Turner in the 60 hurdles
(8.3), Brenda Kazinec in the 60-yd. dash (6.9), Suzanne Frederick in the 880 (2:15),
and Melaine Weaver in the mile and two mile (4:58, 10:43).
The outcome of the meet was never in doubt as Michigan swept the first three
places in mile, 60-yd. dash, 220, 880, and 440. Many of the Blue runners doubled, the
most notable instances being Weaver's sparkling pair of firsts, and Kazinec, who
not only copped the 60 but also won the 220 and ran a leg on the victorious mile relay
"This was the greatest performance by any University of Michigan women's
track team," said coach Red Simmons. "Our new freshmen performed better than
I expected. All the women were really up for their first home meet; I was really
proud of all of them. Every one of them improved over their previous best perfor-
Bullard, Thorton, and Weaver qualified for the national championships, and
the team members seem headed for continued improvement as the season
progresses. The women tracksters travel to East Lansing Saturday for the MSU

Steelers out of reach
The Los Angeles Rams fought hard, but couldn't topple the four time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers
in last Sunday's game at Pasadena. In this fourth quarter action, Steeler receiver John Stallworth (82) makes an
amazing over the shoulder catch of a Terry Bradshaw pass while Ram defenders Rod Perry (49) and Dave Elmen-
dorff (behind Perry) cover just out of reach. Nolan Cromwell (21) stares in disbelief.

Leach tops Horwitch for Penn dtitle

Moments before last Sunday's championship
match in the Penn Indoor Singles Tennis Tour-
nament, Michigan's Michael Leach spotted the
reporter. "Ready for some quotes?," he asked
"Wait a couple hours," suggested the scribe.
Two hours later, the talented sophomore from
Weston, Mass., had plenty to talk about after
defeating top-seeded teammate Matt Horwitch, 3-6, 6-
3, 6-4, before at appreciative audience at the Liberty
Racquet Club.
LEACH, SEEDED number two in the 32-player
event, displayed a splendid serve-and-volley com-
bination in downing Horwitch, a Highland Park, Ill.,
junior who, like Leach, often simply over-powers his
"I tried to keep it from his backhand and keep it in
close to his body," said Leach, who won a speed ser-
ving contest Friday with a clocking of 117 mph.
"Whoever did the most hitting was going to win. I hit
a little firmer and he was chipping it.
"The key was my first serve. I wasn't getting it in
consistently in the first set. When I began serving bet-
ter my volleying really picked up."
WOLVERINE COACH -Brian Eisner concurred
with Leach's assessment. "Both serve and volley un-
believably well, but the key was going to be who could
return the serve better," said Eisner, who will send
both Horwitch and Leach to the Prince All-American
Tournament in Houston later this week. "In fact, the
start of the match was surprising in that both broke
service in the first two games. From that point on, I
knew it would be close."
Though Horwitch and Leach (who, incidentally,

dout could sense the crowd.
"We're two totally different personalities off the
court," Horwitch said. "The crowd got behind him a
little bit. But it doesn't bother me at all. The match
has no relationship on our fiiendship."
HORWITCH AND LEACH have faced each other
only once before-last year during a "challenge mat-
ch" in practice, with Horwitch winning in a close af-
"The two are very, very evenly matched," con*
mented Eisner. "Today (Sunday) Mike won;
tomorrow it just as easily could be Matt."
Leach's victory was, as Horwitch put it, "rising to
the occasion." He needed the win badly, as his play
over the past several months has been hampered by a
long bout with mononucleosis.
"It affected me until Thanskgiving," he said. "Sin-
ce then I've been lifting, running-everything to take
care of myself. It's been an up-and-down battle for a
while. Now I'm pretty gung-ho about it.
HORWITCH, WHO said he hadn't been seeded fir'
in a tournament for several years, was gracious in
defeat. "Mike was a deserving champion," he said.
"He returned well the whole day. I wasn't putting
enough pressure on my return. He played a helluva
The tournament, which Eisner hopes to retain in
Ann Arbor next year, became a showcase for the
Wolverine netters. To reach the finals, Horwitch had
to defeat Blue freshman sensation Mark Mees, while
Leach downed senior co-captain Jud Shaufler in the

form Michigan's number one doubles pair) share a
similar style-hard-hitting and aggressive-their ac-
tions on the court differ sharply. Leach is an
animated, bouncy performer, one who can easily win
the affection of a crowd. In contrast, Horwitch is less
emotional, more of a businessman. The junior stan-

Tracksters perform well in EMU Classic

Several Michigan runners registered
fast performances at the EMU Cl assic
Saturday at Ypsilanti.
"We had some pretty good perfor-
mances," noted coach Jack Harvey.
Ted Dobson won the 600 in a good early-
season time of 1:12.2, with teammate
Tim Thomas third in 1:12.8. It was Dob-
son's first 600 ever, and was "excellent
for him," according to Harvey.
Thomas, usually an 880/800m. man,
displayed speed extraordinary for a
collegiate middle-distance runner.

Tim's twin brother Greg placed third in
the 880 with a 1:54.4.
The shuttle hurdle team placed
second in 29.7 seconds, and two mem-
bers of that foursome fared well in the
individual hurdles race, with Marshall
Parks second in the 60-yd. high hurdle
event in 7.32 seconds and Shelby John-
son finishing in 7.67 seconds. The world
record for the event is held by Renaldo
Nehemiah of Maryland in 6.88 seconds.
Dan Beck cruised to a 2:13.5 win in
the 1,000-yard event. "He's in good
shape," commented Harvey. "He

wasn't challenged that much, so he has
the potential to go faster."
Andrew Bruce, normally a short
sprint specialist, showed his versatility
with a sizzling 48.1 in the 400-meters,
just a few tenths from the NCAA
qualifying standard. "A great time for
this early in the season."
The Wolverines also placed a man in
the weight events, with Phil Wells
second in the shot put with a toss of
53'3". "He can do better - give him a
couple of weeks and he'll improve."
Harvey kept a number ot distan-
cemen and "first stringers" from com-
peting' in order to aim for this
weekend's Michigan Relays at the
Track and Tennis Building. "We're
hoping to qualify a distance medley
team for the NCAA's. We're going to try

to stack some of the relays and look for
some good times."
The qualifying time for the medley,
which consists of separate legs of 880,
440, 1320, and a mile; is 9:50.00 for the
nationals. Running in the event for
Michigan will be Tim Thomas carrying
the baton for the 880 leg, Ted Dobson in
the 440, Dan Beck in the 1320, and Dan
Heikkinen in the mile. "That relay
should be very competitive. A lot of
schools are going to be trying to qualify
their teams for the nationals in tha
event, so it should be pretty fast. It'll
a good meet," concluded Harvey.
Action gets under way for this Satur-
day's meet at 3:00 p.m. with the
preliminary trials and will'continue at
around 4:00p.m. with the finals.
