team rallied to a third-place finish.
Their performance, coupled with
James Ross's fourth-place jump on
Friday night, gave the Wolverines 10
total points in the meet and tied them

Michigan pooled its resources for the
relay. Both Mike Shea and Dan
Heikkinen had qualified for the NCAA's
in individual events, yet they decided to
devote their talentsi to the distance
"IT WAS UP to Heik (Heikkinen),"
said Shea. "If he wanted to run (in the
relay) we were going to do it. I think of
it this way - if Heik runs well, he'll
make me an All-American."
Heikkinen received plenty of help
from his fellow teammates as the quar-
tet did just that - captured all
The race got off to a shakey start
when the Bowling Green and Villanova

forced Shea to run around them.
Though the mishap devastated the

Michigan were Ken Gardner, who ran

Michigan coach' Jack.Harvey,. who
was named NCAA track Coach of the

finish. "I saidbefore the meet that we'd

Texas-El Paso (UTEP) captured its
sixth national title in the last eight
years by winning the team competition
with 76 points. Following UTEP were

EIGHTEEN OF UTEP'S points were
accounted for by the 27-year-old Tan-

into the gun lap. Padilla pulled ahead at
the stretch to win the race with a time
of 8:26.52. Padilla is the only American
collegiate runner to ever defeat Nyam-
bui in a track event.
Nyambui got revenge in the mile run,
however, when his time of 4:01.85
proved too much for Padilla, who
finished in 4:01.96.
Carl Lewis, who won the long jump on
Friday night, became the only double

he was not surprised by the results.

Because of his victory, Langford
believes that the Midwest pole vaulters
may finally gain some overdue
publicity. "People are going to have to
