Brian Diemer set a Michigan record
in the mile and finished second in the
1,000-yard run to help give, the
Wolverines a 90-39 victory over
Michigan State yesterday at the Track
and Tennis Building.
Diemer covered the distance in
3:59.93, eclipsing the time of Dan
Heikkinen, who ran 4:02.28 in 1980. It
was the fifth time this year that a
collegiate runner has broken the four-

The highlight of the field events was
the high jumping of Paul Piwinski. The
Spartan senior cleared 7'3" and
narrowly missed 7'6".
"My best this year is 7'5". If I went to
7'4" or 7'5", it would have been no big
thing. Everything is flowing together
now. I've been learning a lot this year
and I should be at 7'6" within the next
three months," said Piwinski.
The Wolverines travel to Western
Michigan next weekend to take part in
the Central Collegiate Championships.

In yesterday's competition, Bullard

the line fifth in the 60-yard hurdles with
an 8.40 clocking. Wilson and Brenda
Kazinec finished second and third
behind Michigan State's Judi Brown in
the 440-yard run. All three shattered the

MICHIGAN got strong efforts in the
60-yard dash where Lorrie Thornton
and Kazinec finished one-two. Both
Wolverine runners broke Wolverine-
