athletes who competed this season will
sit back in anticipation of the Big Ten

AMONG THE GIFTED athletes
competing for national laurels at the
Silverdome are Michigan's Todd
Steverson, Brian Diemer, Gerard
Donakowski, and Derek Harper. All
four have bettered the qualifying stan-
dards set by the NCAA and stand ready
to win NCAA championships.
Michigan is the host team at the
event, an honor enjoyed since Don
Canham initiated the meet at Cobo Hall
Michigan coach Jack Harvey ex-
plains why the championships are not
likely to leave the Silverdome for a long
"WE'VE MADE money for the NCAA
every year," he said. "Michigan does
not make any money on the meet at all,
it all goes to the NCAA."
All of Michigan's qualifying athletes
stand a chance of scoring. Harper, with
a season best long jump of 25'3", and
his best jumping ahead of him, could fit
inito the top five.
Diemer and Donakowski will both
compete in the two-mile event,
although Diemer also qualified for the
one-mile run, where he has broke the
four-minute-barrier earlier this season
with a 3:59.9 against Michigan State.
DIEMER WILL not run in the mile,
however, due to the fact that the
qualifying heats for the two events are
one after the other.
Steverson, a freshman, qualified last
week in the 600-yard run at the Big Ten
championship meet. His time of 1:10.01
was a personal best.
The glamor event of every meet is the
mile run, and Indiana's Big Ten cham-
pion Jim Spivey joins three other sup-
four-minute milers in the dash for the
championship in that event.
No Big Ten school holds much hope
for winning the national crown.
Villanova, perpetually strong in the
distance events, Tennessee's spring
standouts, and Southern Methodist,
with a plethora of field event stars, are
the early favorites for the title of
NCAA National Champion.
The field events and qualifying heats
for the track events take place Friday
night, and the finals are Saturday af-

at Big Tens
By PAULA SCHIPPER
A psychological disadvantage threatens the performance
of the women's gymnastics team today and tomorrow at the
Big Ten Championships.
Oddly enough, this is not because the defending champion
Wolverines face the undefeated and top-ranked Ohio State
squad. Rather, the problem is due to low scores compiled by
the injury-riddled Michigan squad which resulted in a sixth-
place ranking for today's competition at Iowa City. The
Wolverines will now have to compete in a rotation with the
conference's worst three teams, leading judges to expect
poor performances, and to possibly withhold the top points.
And that is dama ging to Michigan's morale.
"I'm disappointed that we're in the first rotation," said all-
arounder Dayna Samuelson who finished second on vault at
the 1982 Big Ten championships. "It made a lot of us mad."
It made coach Sheri Hyatt angry, too. "We're at a
psychological disadvantage ranked sixth," said Hyatt. "But
that's the only thing that's going to hurt us."
Hyatt believes the squad is capable of placing third. But to
do that, the Wolverines must notch scores in the low to mid
"We've only had four decent scores in the 170's (this
season)," explained Hyatt. "What we are looking for is to hit
four out of four events and get a high score, because we still
have a chance for regionals."
That chance depends heavily on good individual scores this
weekend. If judging is consistent, Michigan has the potential
to do well. But the fact remains that a sixth-place team has
never won the Big Ten Championships.
