Vaulters put

'M o9
Both the vaulters are in their first
year at Michigan. Chevillet, a
sophomore from Ft. Wayne, Ind. spent
a year at Jackson Community College,
where he was second in the country at
the junior college level in the pole vault,
before moving down the road a few
miles to Ann Arbor. Woolley, when
coming out of high school, was wooed
into attending Moorehead St. in Ken-
tucky. But the Moorehead track team
was dissolved at the end of last year.
"THE COACHES at Moorehead
talked good, but the school was nothing
they said it would be," said Woolley. "I
didn't want to make the same mistake
again, so I came to Michigan. The dif-
ference between the two is substantial.
Here the program is better, the athletes
are better taken care of, and there is
pride, in the team," he said. "At the end
of last year at Moorehead, there were
only five people still on the team.
Everyone else had quit or been kicked
But now being on the Michigan team
has seemed to pay off for the vaulters.
They were both influenced on their
decision to attend Michigan by the fact
that the other might come here.
"It is really helpful to have good
competition on your own team," said
Chevillet. "We basically work on our
own during practice so we help each
other out a lot and we have both im-
proved through learning new
techniques from each other."
CHEVILLET is quite a veteran in the
snort of pole vaulting, beginning his
career in the second grade. "I was
vaulting in a friend of mine's back
yard for a few years and then picked it
up in school during seventh grade,"
said Chevillet. "In high school I was
invited to participate in the Golden
West meet in California for the best
high schoolers in the country and that
was quite an honor, as was being in the
NCAA championships."
Woolley, on the other hand, picked up
pole vaulting out of sheer athletic am-
bition. "I played football and basket-
ball in ninth grade so when the spring
came around, I went out for track,"
said the Kitchener, Ontario resident.
"Since I wasn't very fast or strong, I
did the pole vault."



,Woolley went on from there to
become one of the best vaulters in
Canada. He was on the Canadian
iuniors team and won the pole vault at
the Pan-American games at that level. Now
Woolley participates on the Canadian
National track team and last summer
travelled to Venice, Italy and Australia.
"I'm looking forward to finishing
school here ,on the track team and
graduating in '84 which should put me
in pretty good position to qualify for the
Olympics," said Woolley.
CHEVILLET, though, looks to more
modest goals. "I don't know what I'll
do after school, but I'd like to continue
in track and hopefully be able to join a
club," said the Wolverine field
specialist. "While I'm here at
Michigan I'd like to qualify for the
NCAAs outdoors and in doing so I would
break the school record of 17'1%/4"."
One thing the pole vaulting duo has
gained in its service at Michigan is a
common goal of team success. "I think
that with the members we have on the
team now, we are capable of winning
the conference the rest of the years I'm
here," said Woolley. "We should be
able to qualify a lot of people to
nationals this year."
"I think that this year the team
should shoot for winning the Big Ten
and Central Collegiate champion-
ships," added Chevillet. "We've
already won both indoors, and no one
has ever won all four, indoors and out.

This afternoon is the annual spring football game, which
irks the conclusion of a month of rigorous spring football
it has been. so rigorous that Coach Bo Schembechler will
I have an abundance of healthy bodies available for the
me. "I've only got four healthy (offensive) guards and
y two healthy tight ends," said Schembechler.
OUT FORGETTING the strains, sprains, twists and tears,
game promises to be enjoyable. The basic format is
si p ple -a regulation game will be played, barring of course,
Oho State intensity.
h team will be split into two groups, the blu, team and
th white team. The quarterbacks will be j-niors, Steve
Srith against Dave Hall. But as Scheribechler said,
"Whoever -has (senior All-American Anthony) Carter will
have a big advantage."

Schembechler has been very pleased with this year's
spring practice. "I am very happy with the way practice has
gone. The team has a great attitude. We had some fun, lear-
ned some football, and accomplished a great deal," he said.
WITH OFFICIAL practice now completed, the coaching
staff will wrap up this segment of the year. "I'm going to
make a critique on spring ball, and it'll take three days to in-
terview all the players before they leave for the summer,"
said Schembechler.
For the months of May, June, and July, Schembechler and
his staff will be mixing work time with vacations. Schem-
bechler has a host of alumni commitments, as his assistants
will use the month of May to study and evaluate high school
Come August 1, the coaching staff will resume full-time
preparation for the 1982 run for the Roses.
Today's game starts at 2:00 p.m.
