Diemer wins;
harriers romp

round-up
'M' runs third;
Yuhn is injured

By JOE BOWER
Damp winds and chilling 40 degree
temperatures presented more of a
challenge to the Michigan men's cross
country team Friday than did its op-
ponent, the Michigan State Spartans.
The maize and blue harriers were
successfully able to weather the dreary
conditions and trounce Michigan State,
15-48.
"I WAS really pleased with the way
we ran," Warhurst said. "We did very
well especially considering the fact that
we were running into the wind all the
way. This was really our first experien-
ce with the cold."
Michigan runners performed as if
they were at home in the less than ideal
weather, by capturing the race's first
five places. Leading the way was senior
standout Brian Diemer who completed
the 5-mile course in 23:53. Not far
behind were Chris Brewster (23:54),
Bill Brady (23:55), Dennis Keane
(24:00) and Dave Meyer (24:02).

Michigan State's Tom Irmen broke
up the Wolverine cluster by placing six-
th with a time of 24:15, but 'M' harriers
Jim Schmidt and Doug Heikkinen were
close on his heels finishing with times of.
24:17 and 24:21, respectively.
"OUR TIMES were real im-
pressive," Warhurst noted. "This was
our third meet in a row where we had a
lot of finishers within .25 of each other."
Michigan has the next two weeks off,
and will spend them preparing for the
Big Ten Championships Nov. 5 in
Champaign. Number one-ranked
Wisconsin is favored to win the com-
petition, however, Warhurst is hoping
his improving harriers can alter such
an outcome.
"I think this week we made the tran-
sition," he said. "Things are looking up
and I hope to stay at the level we're
running at."
AT THE Lehigh Invitational last
week the Wolverines finished second to
Wisconsin. Five Badger runners
crossed the finish line ahead of
Michigan's fastest entrant.
"We'll have to run faster," Warhurst
conceded. "If we can maintain our
performance, and I see no reason why
we can't; we're going to get a real
strong finish."

Volleyballers spiked

By MIKE MCGRAW
Talk about hard luck.
After missing the entire track season
last year and not running at all over the
summer because of a foot injury, junior
runner Judy Yuhn made her debut for
the women's cross country team last
Saturday at the MSU Fall Cross Coun-
try Classic. She made a respectable
showing with a 17th place finish, but
suffered an ankle injury and was
probably lost for the season.
SHE JOINS the already sidelined Sue
Schroeder, which puts the top two
Michigan harriers out of action. "Sue
Schroeder has a foot injury that hurts
when she runs on uneven surfaces,"
said coach Francie Goodridge. "She
may be able to run in the Big Ten meet,
though. Judy is on crutches and will
probably be out for the rest of the
year."
But despite all the bad news, last
weekend's race was a very successful
one for the Wolverines, as they took
third in the eight-team meet behind
Western Ontario and Iowa.
"I was pleased the way we ran again-

st Iowa, our third runner was righ
behind their fourth," said Goodridge
"We wanted to run in a closely kni
pack and that worked well."
LEADING THE pack over the five
kilometer course was junior transfer
Cathy Schmidt with a time of 18:44.
good for 10th overall. She was followe
by sophomore Kelly Bert in 12th, Yuhn
Bonnie McDonald and Melissa Thom
pson in 22nd and 25th, respectively.
But Goodridge feels the team is
capable of even better performances.
"We wanted Cathy Schmidt to hold
back and try to stay with our runnersd
she was well within herself in tenth
place," she said. "Also Bonnie was
sick, so she was further back then we
planned on.
This week the young corps of runn
will travel to Ypsilanti to run against
Eastern and Western Michigan and
Bowling Green for their final tuneup
before Big Tens on November 5.
"I feel good about this team," said
Goodridge. "They're proving them-
selves in their first year. We're buildin
well for the future."

Michigan's volleyball team came out
on the short end of the Longhorn Con-
verse Classic in Austin, Texas this
weekend, losing to Tennessee in the
preliminary round before bowing to
Arizona State in the consolation match.
The Wolverines could do little against
the 13th-ranked Volunteers, managing
to come up with only 14 points in the
match. Scoring went 5-15, 1-15, 8-15.
Tennessee's outstanding serving ac-
counted for most of their points, but
Michigan's lackadaisical performance
also played a part in the outcome of the
match.
"(THEIR) CONCENTRATION was
lacking," said Michigan assistant
coach Barb Canning. "They kind of -
panicked."
Michigan did show a little more spark
in the consolation match, despite losing
to the eighteenth-ranked Sun Devils, 6-
15, 7-15, 15-12, 10-15. Jeanne Weckler
supplied the offensive punch, compiling
a .286 hitting percentage,, while senior

Sue Rogers led the way on defense,
coming up with five solo blocks, a team
high for the season.
Although the Wolverines were not
victorious in the consolation match,
Canning thought they looked much
sharper than they did against Ten-
nessee. She considered the Arizona
State match a good one for Michigan.
"EVERY POINT was rallied for,"
said Canning. "It was probably the best
match all year."
An injury to sophomore Jennifer
Hickman may have hurt Michigan in
the Arizona State contest. Hickman,
one of the Wolverines' leading hitters,
had to leave the court after suffering a
back injury.
Texas went on to beat Tennessee for
the tournament title.
Michigan's two losses bring its overall
record to 13-9. The spikers take their 2-6
Big Ten record to East Lansing tonight
as they take on Michigan State in con-
ference play.

The Women's field hockey team had a
successful start on turf this year
beating Ohio State 2-1 last Friday.
With the win, the Wolverines managed
to inch ahead of the Buckeyes in the Big
Ten standings.
With the game tied, 1-1, 20 minutes in-
to the second half, Michigan co-
captains Denise Comby and Kay Mc-
Carthy coordinated a smooth effort, as
Comby set up a corne-r shot by forward
Lisa Schofield for McCarthy to drive in
the winning goal with only five minutes
remaining in the game. -
"FOR OUR first game on turf,
(Michigan coach Candy Zientak) was
very pleased," said McCarthy.
"Everything was working, particularly
our passing game. Everyone clicked on
Friday."
Besides ending a two-game slump,
Michigan's victory over Ohi State also
gained the Wolverines more confidence
on the field.
"Ohio has a center halfback who
dominated their play," said McCarthy.
"We had the advantage after passing
her. Our strategy was to keep the ball
down the sides, and try to force cor-

ners."

Harley "The Bomb" Manela is a lucky
young fella, for he picked 17 winners to
take last week's Griddes contest. The

Illinois quarterback Jack Trudeau.
Despite upsetting Ohio State on Satur-

THE ISSUE of turf play again deter-
mined the outcone of Michigan's for-
tunes in its Saturday game against Nor
thwestern as the Wildcats had a
decided advantage against the
Wolverines, their home field.
The runners-up of last year's Big Ten
Championships scored a goal in each
half to take a hard-fought, 2-0, win over
Michigan.
The fast turf put her team on the
defensive for the first fifteen minutes of
the game, but the Wolverines played a
much stronger game compared to thei
previous loss to Northwestern.
"If we played them on grass that day,
we would have had a better chancea
beating them," said McCarthy. "They
came into the game too overconfident."
If Michigan is exhibiting stronger
signs of performance, then they get the
chance to back up the fighting words of
McCarthy, Comby, and Schofield
against Iowa, last year's conference
champs. "Iowa beat Northwestern 4-4
We're going in as under dogs and read
to kill."
