four years, Wolverine flanker Anthony
Carter took the money and ran Satur-
day by signing a multi-year contract
with the Michigan Panthers.
The three-time All-American signed
for $2.4 million over four years, accor-

organization. Carter will receive $1.1

CARTER ENDED two months of
speculation about his professional foot-
ball career by flying to Detroit Satur-
day morning with his agent, Bob Woolf,
to sign the contract.
The 5-11, 161 pound receiver stressed
the importance of staying in Michigan
in explaining his decision.
"I just had the opportunity to play in
the state of Michigan in front of people
who have been good to me," said Car-
ter. "I had no idea where I'd play in the

made up my mind Tuesday to sign, but

THE MICHIGAN women tuned up
by taking six individual titles and
setting three varsity records at the
Huron Relays at Eastern Michigan
on February 18.
Freshman Sue Schroeder set a
new varsity standard while winning
the 1000 meters in 2:49.2. The other

But at the University of California-

Carter concurred that he is not using
the USFL as a springboard to the NFL.
"Not at all," he said. "I'm just concen-

MIAMI (AP) - Gary Koch slammed
the door on any potential challengers
with a two-under-par 70 and coasted to
a five-stroke victory yesterday in the
rain-delayed windup of the Doral-
Eastern Open Golf tournament.
It was, said Ed Fiori, who finished
second, simply no contest this sunny,
"GARY JUST outplayed us out. He
only missed one shot and I was seven or
eight shots down by then and it didn't
matter," Fiori said. "We were never in
Koch, who hadn't won for five years,
established a four-stroke lead in Satur-
day's third round, then had to wait
through a day's rainout before attem-
pting to defend that lead.
He defended it well. No one got close
over the final 18 holes. His margin was
as high as seven shots at one time and
he coasted home. Extremely windy
weather prohibited anyone from
making a major move.
"It was fortunate for me the con-
ditions were the way they were," Koch
said. "With the wind like that, I knew it
would be difficult for anyone to shoot a
good round. That provided me with the
luxury of having my pars look pretty
