By MIKE MCGRAW
The 1983 cross country season is'
about to begin... but Michigan's run-
ners aren't ready yet. In fact, they don't
really need to be. The entire effort of
this year's harriers is pretty much
directed at the race on November 20 in
Lehigh, Penn - the NCAA champion-
ships.
It is at this race alone that a team's
ability is given its place among its
competitors in the collegiate ranks.
When compiling the top ten in cross
country, the only result that counts
comes from the nationals.
THE SAME holds true for the Big Ten
championships. Dual meets and in-
vitationals meanDnothing in the con-
ference standings, so Wolverine coach
Ron Warhurst isn't going to bother with
very many, scheduling only three

races before the Big Ten meet Novem-
ber 5 in Champaign.
"I think it helps not having much
competition," said the tenth-year
coach? "Some of our training workouts
are harder than races, plus you have to
be mentally prepared for racing. This
way you don't have to be ready every
week. Big Ten's and nationals are what
count."
And when it's all on the line in
November, the Wolverines have th.e
talent to be close to the top in both
races. Michigan returns prolific distan-
ce runner Brian Diemer, who is NCAA
champion in the 3,000-meter
steeplechase and was a cross country
All-American in 1982, placing 18th at
nationals.
BUT ITS top runner in last year's
NCAAs, Gerard Donakowski, will have
to be replaced and that job has been
given to second-year freshman Chris
Brewster. Last season the London, On-
tario native broke his ankle in October
and missed the fall competition, but
performed well during outdoor track
and has the ability to be one of the best
in the nation.
"Our top two runners will be as
strong as they were last year, and we
will be stronger in the 3-7 spots," said
Warhurst. "There will be a lot of com-
petition for the top spots on the roster,
so they'll have to work even harder."
Fighting for those spots will be retur-
nees Dennis Keane, Dave Meyer, Jim
Schmidt and Bill Brady. All were part
of last year's second place Big Ten
finishers. Keane, a junior out of
Berkley, surprised many by winning
the time trials run on Michigan's 5.2-
mile course last week at a 21:14 pace.
SENIOR TRACK standout Doug
Heikkinen also returns after a bout with

mononeucleosis last season. "My
history in cross country isn't great, but
I'll try really hard since its my last
year," said Heikkinen. "I think the
team will be as good as last year if not
better."
What may make the difference in put-
ting the harriers over the top this year is
the pleasant performance thus far of
the freshman runners. That talented
group includes former Michigan high
school cross country champion Joe
Schmidt, Jim's younger brother; Jeff
Costello out of Grand Rapids; and
Eugene, Ore. migrant John Chambers.

chance to case the course in Lehigh as
they compete in the Lehigh In

they travel to East Lansing for the a>
nual Michigan State dual meet. The
Spartans will provide almost no com
petition but their course is the site of
this year's district meet, the qualifying
race for nationals.
When the big races finally rol
around, Michigan will be facing big
competition in all three from Wiscon

This year's freshmen could be a fac-
tor, but they don't have to be," said
Warhurst. "That's a good position to be
in so that they can get their experience
and learn from the older guys and not
be under a lot of pressure right away."
SO READY or not, the season opens a
week from tomorrow at the Springbank
Road Races in London, Ontario, a
traditional trip for Warhurst coached
teams. The other two races in the
regular season will be preparation for
later meets.
On October 8th, the Wolverines get a

last April their coach Daniel McClimon
was killed in a plane crash, leaving the
squad with some adjustments to make.
"Wisconsin willbe hell to beat, but
Deimer and Brewster are as good as
their top two," said Warhurst.'"I think
we'll be in the top six in the country."
Despite a short cross 0ountry seasgn
this year, it's a long time until Noye
ber 21, when the Wolverines will get a
chance to beat last year's sixth-place
finish in the country. So the team can be
forgiven if it looks ahead in the
schedule.

Women
By MIKE REDSTONE
After its most successful season ever
last year, the Michigan women's cross
country team is gearing up for what it
hopes will be an even better year.
The women harriers topped off last
year's season by winning the NCAA's
midwest district and finishing eighth at
the NCAA national meet.
THIS YEAR, however, several strong
runners will not be returning, accor-
ding to coach Francie Goodridge.
"We have a very young team this
year," said Goodridge. "They've got
their work cut out for them this year if
they want to make it back to the
nationals again this year."
Goodridge has high hopes for
several young runners including
sophomores Sue Schroeder, who had
the sixth fastest time for a freshman at
the NCAA meet last year, and Bonnie

FRESHMAN Jennifer Rioux from
Livonia is 'expected to make an im-
mediate contribution to the team.
Rioux finished second at last year's
state Class B cross country meet.
This year's first meet will be a lear-
ning experience for Michigan's run-
ners, according to Goodridge. The team
will be opening up its schedule at the
Midwest Collegiate Invitational meet in
Kenosha, Wis. on Sept. 24.
"We're going to this meet mainly to
gain some experience," explained
Goodridge. "Our early meets should be
the toughest this year."
Goodridge expects all of her runners
to improve toward the middle of the
season in preparation for this year's
midwest and national NCAA meets.
"The key to this year's team will be the
performances of our younger runners,"
she said.
BOSTON (AP) -- Wade Boggs, the
major-league batting leader, featured a
15-hit attack with a double and two
singles last night as the Boston Red Sox
defeated division-leading Baltimore 7-
1, snapping the Orioles' six-game win-
ning streak.
The loss trimmed Baltimore's
American League East lead over
Detroit to five games, but the Orioles
still have a six-game advantage in the
loss column. The Tigers were idle last
night.
SOUTHPAW BRUCE HURST, 12-10,
became Boston's winningest pitcher
with relief help from Bob Stanley as the
Red Sox handed the Orioles only their
second loss in the last 10 starts, and
fourth in the last 23.
Hurst allowed seven hits, including
Cal Ripken Jr.'s 24th homer, in seven
innings before Stanley finished up.
With three hits in five times at bat,
Boggs raised his average to .361 in his
61st multiple-hit game of the season. He
has had three or more hits 22 times.
JERRY REMY, Jim Rice, Rick
Miller, Dave Stapleton and Gary Allen-
son had two hits apiece for the Red Sox.

Rice, Reid Nichols and Allenson drove

Storm Davis, the first of three
Baltimore pitchers, took the loss.
Davis, 12-6, was tagged for nine hits and
five runs in 41-3 innings.
The Red Sox jumped in front to stay
on a single by Remy, a double by Rice
and a sacrifice fly by Nichols in the first
inning.
Doubles by Boggs and Rice made it 2-
0 in the third and Boston went on to add
one run in the fourth, two in the fifth,
one in the sixth and one in the seventh.
