PONTIAC- Three Michigan individuals and one relay
team successfully passed their trials yesterday and advan-
ced to today's finals of the National Collegiate Athletic
Association (NCAA) indoor track championships at the
Shelby Johnson, Vince Bean, and Derek Harper were the
individual qualifiers, 'while the distance medley team also
ssurvived the cut.
JOHNSON, THE Wolverine Senior co-captain, completed
his trial run of the 60-yard high hurdles in 7.47 seconds to
move into the semi-finals of the event. Johnson will have to
finish in the top four of his eight-man heat today in order to
reach the final. The top trial time in the high hurdles was 723
seconds by Tony Campbell of Southern California.
Harper and Bean, a pair of sophomores, moved into the
finals of the long jump with leaps of 23'10" and 23'8%",
respectively. Bean barely survived the cut, claiming the last
of twelve positions in the finals. Harper was ninth, but he was
13" behind the top qualifier, Andre Kirnes of Middle Ten-
"It's still wide open," said Harper.
"They're (track officials) going to
move the runway back because some
people were almost jumping out of the
pit. It will shorten the runway and that
will hurt the people with long ap-
proaches. Me and Vince both have short
runs so it won't hurt us."
The distance medley team advanced
straight to the final by registering the y
fifth best time of the event. Craig
Camp, Bob Boynton, Mike Shea, and
Brian Diemer combined to finish in
9:47.89. Michigan is one of three in-state.
schools to reach the final, as Eastern
Michigan and Michigan State also
passed yesterday's test.
Michigan assistant coach Ron
Warhurst was optimistic about the
medley team's chances in today's final.
'If we keep Diemer close, anything can
happen," said Warhurst. '-He can run
with any anchor man in this group. In
the last two years we ran our fastest
time in the finals. I hope that's the case

again. I think the winning time will be 9:42-9:45 and we're
very capable of doing that."
Three Wolverine entrants who did not make it to the finals
were Andrew Bruce, Don Chevillet, and the mile relay team.
Bruce finished his heat of the 60-yard dash in 6.37 seconds,
one-twentieth of a secondrbehind the slowest qualifier and
even further behind world indoor record-holder Stanley
Floyd of Houston, who had a time of 6.13.
CHEVILLET COULD not clear the starting height of 16'6"
in the pole vault and the mile relay team was eliminated
when Bruce fell off the track in the final turn of the opening
leg and dropped from a close second to a distant fifth place.
Rob Grainger, Johnson, and Shea made up some ground in
the remaining three legs, but the Wolverines were still well
off the pace.
"I was bumped slightly and had nowhere to go but the in-
side of the track," said Bruce. "I fell off and tried to slip back
on before I was disqualified. I'm disappointed."
Wolverine coach Jack Harvey was satisfied with the way
the day went for his team. "We figure our distance-medley
had the best shot to score, and if our long jumpers placed that
would be a bonus," said Harvey. "To qualify our mile relay
we'd have to have a lot of luck. We would've needed our
fastest time of the year."

Special to the Daily
PONTIAC - It was a sight to make
one's eyes sore.
Colors. Some bright, some dull, but
colors everywhere.
yesterday as the National Collegiate
Athletic Association invaded the north
end of the stadium for its annual indoor
track championship.
The hues and tones were
predominantly emanating from the
uniforms of the competitors. From the
violet and white of Texas Christian, to
the spring green of Manhattan, from
the orange and royal blue of Virginia
State, to the sky blue and pale yellow
of Southwest Missouri, the colors came
from near and far.
Kansas provided the interesting"
combination of magenta and powder
blue, while C.W. Post proudly displayed
its colors, forest green and gold. But
these colors are nothing new to the
NCAA track championships. They vary
only slightly from year to year.
THE ROOKIE shades of the meet
were those of the backdrop, the
Mediterranean blue seats of the Silver-
dome and the flourescent yellow and
orange of the track.
The Pontiac location and the track
surface are both new to track com-
petition. For the first 14 years of NCAA
indoor track championships, the meet
was held on Detroit's riverfront, at
Cobo Arena. With the construction of
Joe. Louis Arena in 1979, the meet
moved next door and took the old
wooden track with it.
This year, however, the meet moved

north to the Silverdome, and a new
track was constructed specifically fei
the event. Built by Tracks West, of
Albequerque, New Mexico, the track
drew favorable responses from nearly
everyone connected with the meet.
"IT'S THE BEST track and probably
the fastest in the world," said meet
director Don Canham, who moonlights
as Michigan's athletic director. "It's
obviously pretty fast. A new recoii
was set in the first final." In the cham-
pionship heat of the three-mile run, one
of two finals held yesterday, Texas-U
Paso's Gabriel Kamau set a new mgt
record with a time of 13:07. ,
breaking the old standard by nearly to
and one-half seconds.
Michigan assistant coach Roh
Warhurst indicated that the runnersa
well as the officials, were satisfied with
the running surface. "I've been talking
to a few of the kids from out East and
they run on the boards a lot out ther.
They say it's the fastest track they've
ru on.eof those "kids," Georgia's He
schel Walker, concurred. "I think it'sa
good track. It's real fast. I'll know
more about how fast it is tomorrow.
The football All-American qualified far
today's semi-finals in the 60-yard dash
with a time of 6.18 seconds.
Twelve thousand advanced tickets
have been sold for today's competition,
according to Canham, who hopes to
continue housing the meet in the Silver-
dome. "There's not a bad seat in here,"
said Michigan's former track coach.
"It's probably the best arena for track.
We'll stay here forever if we can draw
some people and we're doing that."

HOUSTON, Tex.- The Michigan
baseball squad didn't just beat Central
Michigan in its first games of the
season here yesterday. The Wolverines
pasted the Chippewas on their way to
sweeping a doubleheader between the
two squads. They posted 20 runs and 22
hits in the two games and won, 13-0, and
Entering the game, the Wolverines
were ranked 7th in the country by the
New Collegiate Baseball magazine,
while Central Michigan was ranked
25th. However, the Michigan trio of Jim
Paciorek, Chris Sabo, and Tony Evans
combined for 12 hits and 13 RBIs, in-
cluding three homers (one .a grand
slam), which was too much for the
THE SCORING in the first game
started with two out in in the first in-
ning. Following Michigan third
baseman Sabo's single on an infield hit,
and a double by Paciorek, Rich Bair
sent them both across the plate with a
double off the left-field wall.
The third inning meant more scoring
for the Wolverines while the Chippewas
still couldn't get anyone safely around
. the diamond. Michigan's onslaught
started as a single by Paciorek with the
bases loaded and no outs scored Greg
Schulte. With the bases still loaded, the
Chips almost got out of the jam as they
managed to get two outs. Enter Evans.
The All-Big Ten shortstop sent it over
the wall for the grand slam, making the
score 7-0. That was all for the
Wolverines, until the next inning.
Michigan kept piling it on in the four-
th as Sabo sent a two-run homer over
'the left field fence with Schulte on
second. A double by John Young sent
Paciorek and Bair home after they had
gotten on with a single and a walk.
Young came home on a double by
Evans, raising the score to 12-0.
Michigan finished off the scoring with a

Schulte led off the game with a homer
for Michigan, and the Blue scoring
machine was rolling again. A three-run
homer by Bair sent the score to 4-0, and
Evans added another on a round-trip
shot over the fence in left.
Michigan's Paciorek, though, still
didn't have all the scoring out of his
system. After the Chips had made it 5-2
with a pair of runs in the second inning,
Paciorek put one over the wall in the
third, and added a 400-foot home run
blast in the fourth to round out the
scoring. Hurler Tim Karazim was the
winning pitcher for Michigan, coming
in the game in the second inning for
starter Dave Kopf and giving up only
one hit.
The Wolverines will be in action
again today when they meet Houston in
a single game.,

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Freshman
Adrian Branch scored a game-high 21
points as Maryland opened its bid for
the National Invitation Tournament
basketball championship by defeating
Richmond 66-50 last night.
A capacity crowd of 9,373 at Rich-
mond's Robins Center turned out to see
Richmond make its first-ever post-
season tournament appearance.
THE TRIUMPH sent Maryland, 16-

Pete Holbert came off the bench to
score four straight jumpers over Rich-

two other baskets to spark the Terps to
a 31-24 halftime lead. Branch had six
points in the drive.
Bill Flye's short jumper cut Rich-
mond's deficit to five just eight seconds
into the second half. But the Spiders
collected only two more field goals and
a single free throw over the next 10
minutes to fall behind at 44-31.
