Getting stared

Harriers head to

the stadium.. .

By MIKE MCGRAW
Ever have dreams of being a cross
country runner? Or have you fantasized
about finishing the Olympic marathon
in a huge stadium, with a screaming
throng cheering you on? Well if you
have, then the Big Ten Road Race this
Saturday is for you.
The 1982 version of the Michigan
women's cross country team will be
sponsoring and participating in the
event, a 10-mile run through the streets
of Ann Arbor culminating in an exciting
finish on the 50-yard line of Michigan
Stadium. The big bowl may not be full,
but to the hard-core runner that
shouldn't matter.
WOLVERINE coach Francie Kraker-
Goodridge is taking advantage of the
run to keep her team in shape as well as
getting them some public exposure.
The women harriers have had only one
home meet in the team's history and
that was two years ago.
Anyone interested in participating in
the run can register before 7:30 a.m.
Saturday morning at the stadium or all
day today at the Briarwood Hilton.
Race officials are expecting about 2,000
runners to make the 8:30 a.m. start.

"The race will be good visibility for
us," said Goodridge. "Most of our run-
ners will be taking part."
But not all of the Wolverine thinclads
will be able to experience this event, as
two of the key runners for the team are
coming off injuries. "In the spring, I

said that we could challenge for the Big
Ten Championship, but now I would
have to be more cautious on such a
prediction," remarked the second-year
coach.
THECASUALTIES for the Wolverines
include sophomore Judy Yuhn and
senior Sue Frederick-Foster-holder of
several Michigan track records-who
hurt her knee while climbing mountains
in Alaska over the summer while on her
honeymoon. Yuhn should be ready to
compete next week when the harriers
open their regular season at the
Eastern Michigan Invitational in Yp-
silanti. Foster, however, is out in-
definitely.
There are some bright spots on the
squad also. Returning are seniors Lisa
Larsen and Melanie Weaver, both
veterans of past cross country and
track seasons. Larsen, a Battle Creek
native, became Michigan's first cross
country All-American last year when
she finished 15th at the AIAW national
meet in Pocatello, Idaho.
"Larsen and Weaver are running bet-
ter than ever this fall," said Goodridge.

"Lisa ran in several road races this
summer and had some of the best times
in the country for 10 kilometers."
DESPITE THE veterans on the
Wolverine squad this year,,Michigan
was lacking a fifth runner to round out
the team, but may have found her in
new recruit Sue Schroeder from
Napolean, Ohio. "I was looking to
recruit a capable fifth runner for this
year, but Sue is better than I had ever6
dreamed I would get," said Goodridge.
The goal for the Wolverines this year
is to improve on last year's disappoin-
ting fifth-place 'finish in the Big Ten.
But the injuries incurred by the team
will make things tough. "Both our in-
jured people are running right now, but
it's hard to tell when they will be in
good enough condition to run com-
petitively," said Goodridge. "But
having such an experienced teams
really helps."
If you want to check on the condition
of the women's cross country team
yourself, just come down to Michigan
Stadium tomorrow and see them in ac-
tion.

... returning All-American

... and stickers open season

By DOUGLAS B. LEVY
The 1982 Michigan women's field
hockey team is strong and experienced.
Coming off an 11-8-1 season in 1981, and
losing only two players to graduation,
the stickers are returning seven of their
top nine point-producers from last

season.
The form of attack employed by four-
th-year coach Candy Zientek is as
follows: four forwards, followed by two
links, three halfbacks, one sweeper
(fullback) and the goalie.
CO-CAPTAIN Heidi Ditchendorf, a
junior from Ann Arbor, leads the for-
ward attack. Last season, Ditchendorf
scored three goals and registered six
assists. Senior Sara Forrestel, the top
scorer last season (nine goals and six
assists), sophomore Lisa Schofield (10
and one), and senior Marty Maugh
(five and three) round out the balanced
attack. If Maugh-who scored 17 goals
as a sophomore-can break loose
again, the forward attack will be
potent.
Junior Key McCarthy (six and two) is
one definite starter at a link position.
Two freshmen-Tracy Gaskins and
Jackie Rodgers-should see action at
the other link position.

Last season's most valuable
player-junior Denise Comby-leads
the halfbacks. Comby, a dominating
presence who registered five assists
last season, will team with senior
Deanna Jones (three assists) and
sophomore Alison Johnson. Sophomore
Jamie Fry will open the season at
sweeper.
At the position of goalie, coach Zien-
tek is set for the next three years.
Junior co-captain Nancy Hirsch (85
saves in 99 shots, .859 percent) and
sophomore Jonnie Terry (75 saves in 86
shots, .872 percent) will most likely
split playing time. And both players
have "improved with experience," ac-
cording to Zientek.
Because of a strict schedule of two-a-
day practices from September 4
through September 9, the team'is in ex-
cellent shape and ready to play. The
opening contest is this afternoon at
home against St. Louis University at
4:00 p.m.
