Dogwoods good to 'M' tracksters
as four qualiy for national meet
Club Sports Roundup
By MIKE MCGRAW
The Michigan thinclads escaped from the blustery
weather of southern Michigan last weekend, as both
the men's and women's track teams competed in the
prestigious Dogwood Relays in Knoxville, Tenn.
Under blue skies and amidst the blossoming of the
dogwood trees that give the meet its name, Michigan
was among over 100 universities and track clubs that
participated in the event. No team scores were kept
at the meet, but both Wolverine entries featured out-
standing performances competing against some of
the top competition in the country.
Leading the men's team was distance specialist
Brian Diemer, who qualified for the NCAA meet in
the 5,000 meters with a time of 13:47. This marks the
second event that Diemer will be participating in the
NCAAs, which will be held at Provo, Utah this June.
Earlier he broke qualifying standards in the 3,000-
meter steeplechase. Diemer also placed an im-
pressive third Saturday in the mile with a time of
SHELBY JOHNSON also placed high in two events,
as the senior from Inkster took fifth in the 400-meter
intermediate hurdles and seventh in the 110-high hur-
dles. Butch Woolfolk put in his best effort of the
season in the 100-meter dash posting a 10.95. Mike
Shea added a fifth place in the 800 meters, stopping
the watch at 1:50.
Other top performances were turned in by the pole
vaulting tandem of Mike Finn and David Woolley,
who tied for fourth; along with several Wolverine
relay teams. Heading the list was the sprint medley
relay team of Andrew Bruce, Woolfolk, and freshmen
Rob Grainger and Bob Boynton, which placed third.
"We ran very well considering we haven't been
able to practice outdoors much so far," said coach
Jack Harvey. "Plus we were running against a lot of
southern schools that have gotten a lot more practice
ALSO INFILTRATED into the Relays were
women's events, and Michigan took that opportunity
to fare well against equally tough competition.
"We ran a great meet for so early in the season,"
said coach Francie Goodridge. "It was also nice to be
able to be in some nice weather."
Using the fair climate of eastern Tennessee to her
full advantage, Sue Frederick eclipsed the school
record in the 1,500 meters/ and also broke AIAW'
qualifying time in the half-mile. Frederick was one of
two Blue tracksters to better a school record at the
meet, as Melanie Weaver also rewrote the record
books in the 3,000 meters which qualified her for the
AIAW meet as well.
LISA LARSEN will follow Weaver to the nationals
in the same event as she took 12th in the 3,000 to
Weaver's seventh. The Weaver-Larsen duo struck
again in the 1,500 meters as the two finished second
and third respectively.
Penny Neer nearly made it three records for the
Wolverines this weekend, btt her'170'7" toss in the
discus was less than two feet short of her previous
best, though it was good enough for seventh place.
Rounding out the very successful meet for the
Wolverine women were second-place finishes in both
the high jump by Joanna Bullard, and Debbie
Williams in the javelin.
THE WEEKEND ahead will be another busy one
for both Michigan's track teams as the women head
for Mt. Pleasant and the Central Michigan In-
"We will be facing most of the same teams we saw
two weeks ago at Western Michigan," said
Goodridge. "So we are looking forward to another
possible team victory there."
The men's team will split up with some going to the
Kansas Relays in Lawrence and the rest par-
ticipating near the state capitol in the Michigan State

MICHIGAN'S JULIAN EPSTEIN (3) knocks a Chicago Lacrosse Club op-
ponent off his stride, while linemate Al Carpenter (14) goes for the loose ball.
Michigan upset Chicago 15-12 in Saturday's game at Dyche Stadium in
LA CR OSSE
The best way to describe the Michigan Lacrosse Club after Saturday's 15-
12 upset win over highly-ranked Chicago is happy and healthy.
Happy because it won, and put itself back in the hunt for the Midwest
Lacrosse Association's number-one ranking. Healthy because for the first
time in five games it had a complete lineup, and finished a game without any
Ed Anderson, Michigan's leading goal-scorer last season, came back from
an injury that has kept him on the sidelines for three weeks to score five
goals.,His three-goal outburst in the first period staked the Wolverines to an
Chicago tied the game before the half, however, as a rash of penalties put
Michigan in defensive trouble throughout much of the second quarter.
Michigan broke.the 5-5 tie less than 30 seconds into the second half, as Matt
Dawe scored the first of his two goals. Dawe added four assists on the day, to
raise his team-leading statistics to 12 goals and 20 assists for 32 points. Two
more Wolverine goals in the next minute put Michigan on top 8-5 and Chicago
was never able to catch up.
Mike Keyes was superb in the Michigan goal, stopping 15 Chicago shots,
most of which were taken from point-blank range. Al Martin, Dana Friend,
Bob Holman, and Bert McCandless keyed the-close defense, which shut down
Chicago's fast break for much of the afternoon.
Other scoring for Michigan came from Paul Maturo (2 goals), Jim
Camilliere (3 goals and one assist), Paul Rizzo (a goal and an assist), and
Bill Kalbfleish and Julian Epstein (one goal each).
The win raised the club's record to 5-2, while the loss was Chicago's first.
Should Chicago upset the Columbus Lacrosse Club, Michigan would be left in
a three-way tie for the top spot in the Midwest. The Wolverines need only to
beat Lake Forest on Saturday to clinch their division title.
