Harriers make

After placing four runners in the top 10 and
finishing second in the NCAA District meet, the
Michigan men's cross country has qualified for next
week's NCAA Championships.
Michigan's Brian Diemer and Chris Brewster ran
their best races of the season and finished in second
and fifth places respectively on the snow-covered
Michigan State course.
DENNIS KEANE finished eighth and Dave Meyer
crossed the line tenth to round out the Wolverines' top
finishers. Michigan's fifth man, Bill Brady, placed
21st in the district despite suffering from a severe
Michigan coach Ron Warhurst was impressed with
his team's performance in the poor weather con-
"We ran a very strong race," said Warhurst.
"There were two or three inches of snow on the cour-
se, but that didn't seem to bother our guys at all."
Wisconsin won the meet with the running of John
Easker, who won the race in a time of 29:49.3.
MICHIGAN AND Wisconsin will be joined by Pur-
due and Illinois, the third and fourth place finishers,
in the NCAA championships at Lehigh, Pa.
Warhurst believes his team has the confidence it
needs going into next Monday's meet.
"We're definitely looking forward to a top four or

five finish at nationals," said Warhurst, whose team
finished sixth in the nation last year.
The team will undergo only two heavy practices in
the next eight days and should be well-rested accor-
ding to Warhurst.
The runners will have to be rested if they hope to
compete with national favorites Wisconsin and the
University of Texas - El Paso.
Women harriers place 12th
A string of injuries, illnesses and accidents affected
Michigan's top four women cross country runners
and resulted in the team finishing in 12th place in a 20-
team field in the NCAA District meet Saturday at
East Lansing.
Michigan's number one runner, Sue Schroeder,
was pulled just before the start of the race because of
stiffness in her knee. She was spiked last week at the
Big Ten meet and could not strengthen her knee
strongly enough to run..

CATHY SCHMIDT, a transfer student who quickly
moved into the team's number two spot, was fighting
a case of the flu and could not run up to her potential.
The Wolverines' number three runner, Kelli Bert,
got caught in the pack early in the race and lost a
shoe. She did, however, run over a mile on the slushy
course without the shoe before withdrawing with a
twisted ankle.
"She (Bert) was running extremely well even
without the shoe," said coach Francie Goodridge. "It
took me a while before I even realized that she had
lost it."
THE FINAL team casualty was at least an expec-
ted one for Goodridge. Judy Yuhn, the team's num-
ber four runner, has been out with in injury since the
middle of October.
Because of the difficulties, Michigan's number five
runner Bonnie McDonald, finished first for the
Wolverines (45th overall). It was the best race of the
season for her, according to Goodridge.
Despite her illness, Schmidt finished in second
place for Michigan (54th overall) while Melissa Thom-
pson was the third Wolverine finisher.
The top two finishers in the district meet, Wiscon-
sin and Minnesota, will go on to compete in the NCAA
championships next week. Wisconsin is favored to
win the meet according to Goodridge.

Stoyko joins
'M' hoopsters

Grapplers dominate own tourney

The first recruit of the Michigan
basketball season appears to be the
type of player Bill Frieder thought
he had two years ago.
Steve Stoyko, who signed a
national letter of intent with the
Wolverines last Friday, fills, from
all indications, Michigan's void at
the shooting forward position.
Henderson were supposed to assume
that role when Frieder signed them
out of high school in early 1982.
Neither, however, played the
position with consistency last win-
Stoyko, a 6-9, 193-pounder, said
last night that he might be the wing
player that Michigan needs.
"What they (Frieder and his staff)
see in me is a shooting forward and
that's what I think Frieder wants,"
Stoyko said last night in a telephone
interview from his BayVillage, Ohio
home. "I think he wants me playing
on the wing where I can catch the
ball, shoot it, and score.
"Everyone said they're (the
Wolverines) loaded with forwards,
but from talking to coach Frieder
and watching practice, they really
don't have a shooting forward.
They're all power forwards."
and eight rebounds per game as a
high school junior. Last summer he
attended the prestigious Five-Star
Basketball Camp, where he played
in the all-star game.
"He was only there one week but
he played very well," said camp
director Howard Garfinkel.
"Everyone said that was the top
week - player-wise - of any camp
this summer and he made our all-
star game."
Garfinkel added that Stoyko was
evaluated as an excellent passer, a
good shooter, an intelligent player

and a good rebounder.
"THE BEST thing about him is
that he can take it to the basket,"
said Garfinkel. "He's a center that
can make the switch to forward in
college because he's mobile. Most
high school centers take two years to
learn how to play facing the basket
in college."
Stoyko's coach, Rich Voiers, said,
"Steve's biggest asset is that he's
very quick for his size. He runs a 4.5
in the 40 (-yard dash).d"
Voiers. estimated Stoyko's
shooting range at 15 to 18 feet. The
coach graded Stoyko's ball handling
ability as "average, with the idea
that we're trying to improve it."
STOYKO CHOSE MichiganFafter
visiting Northwestern, Ohio State,
Duke and Virginia.
"I asked myself, 'What school
would I go to if I wasn't playing
basketball?' " the A-minus student
said. "Michigan was always there.
I'm interested in pre-med and the
medical school enticed me to come
to Michigan."
Dave Bones' Cage Scope, which
last year rated current Michigan
freshman Antoine Joubert the top
high school player in the nation,
listed Stoyko as the 73rd best.
* * *-
After reviewing the films of last
Saturday's 78-70 Michigan victory
over Athletes in Action, Frieder
didn't have much to smile about.
"We've got a long way to go," he
said. "Individual offense. Individual
defense. Team offense. Team defen-
se. Our transition game. Con-
ditioning. We need to improve in
every phase of the game."

Sophomore forward Paul Jokisch,
sidelined for two weeks with a
dislocated finger in his left hand, is
shooting again in practice. Jokisch
will have the finger re-examined
November 21 before returning to
regular practice.

Though last Sunday's Wolverine
Open was admittedly little more than a
tune-up against smaller mideastern
colleges, the Michigan wrestling team
showed little need for adjustment. The
team performed like a finely geared
machine, decimating the visiting com-
"We worked real hard in the pre-

season and it showed," boasted
Michigan head coach Dale Bahr. It
didn't merely show, it glared, as the
Wolverine grapplers captured titles in
eight of ten weight classes.
The team was paced by its veterans,
who performed like the 'Ole reliables'
they've become. The trio of Rob
Rechsteiner (Hwt) Kirk Trost (190
lbs.), and Scott Rechsteiner (177 lbs.)
showed the stuff that qualified them for
last year's NCAA tournament, easily
disposing of their opponents. Mike
DerGarabedian (134 lbs.) Brian Flack
(158), and Joe McFarland (126) also
gave an exhibition on the benefits of ex-
perience, decisively taking their

especially Kevin Hill (167) and fresh-
man William Waters (118), the first 'M'
freshman to win his first tournament
since McFarland.
"Hill should be a real surprise for us,
he had a great tournament," Bahr said.

When asked about Waters he answered,
eyes gleaming, "To step right in as a
freshman and win six straight matches
is remarkable. He has that wrestling
maturity, he knows he can win even
when he's behind. He's going to have a
great career here."
The only major disappointment of the
tournament was a leg injury suffered
by sophomore Tony Latora. Latora is
expected to be a major component in
Michigan's team plan. "We need him
for the season," explained Bahr. "He's

Horn set the pace for the young team
by taking top all-around honor, with
freshman Meyerowitz placing second.
Horn tallied a 53.40 over the six events
while Meyerowitz was close behind
with a 53.00. Additional support came
from sophomore Landman and fresh-
men Rose and Orwig.
The top three scores counted for the
team total, as Michigan finished first
with a score of 158.40, followed closely
by Illinois with 157.60. And Indiana State
in third with 156.65. Western Michigan,
Northern Illinois, and Kent State took
fourth, fifth and sixth respectively.
"WE WERE PLEASED with the per-
formance at the Bronco in that we
defended our title," said first-year
coach Darden.
Next weekend the Wolverines will be
competing against the nation's best at
the Windy City Invitaitonal in Chicago.
Darden is looking ahead to the in-
vitaitonal and will try to pull together
the individual strengths. "In order to
give a good accounting for ourselves we
are going to tap on the talents of the rest
of the squad to give us the depth in Ithe
fourth and fifth positions on each event

In showing themselves to be such
unhospitable hosts, Michigan's grap-
plers achieved their goals for the tour-
nament. The wrestlers got their first
taste of competition of the season and
confirmed what Bahr had expected.
"We're going to be a well-balanced
team," said Bahr, "Barring injuries, I
don't think we'll have a weak position
on the whole team."

Michelle Sadler unsaddled the rest of
the competition by winning Griddes for
the second time this year. She picked 18
winners in earning her second pizza.
This week's Griddes takes on extra
importance because the Daily Libels
will actually put their 652 game winning
streak on the line against the Ohio State
Lantern, the school newspaper of our
arch-rival to the south. In addition, the
Libelles, the Daily's women's squad,
will square off against the Lanternet-
tes, the Lantern's female counterpart.
These games will not be broadcast on
television, because both ABC and CBS
have used up their telecasts of the par-
ticipating teams, but they will count
towards the Griddes scoring.
The Lantern has won the men's game
the past three years, but this years

IM's boast eleven winter sports

A plump and juicy turkey, delectable
stuffing, gooey potatoes, fresh
vegetables, rich and creamy desserts.
Ah, there is nothing like the traditional
fare for the holiday season. The tem-
ptation to gorge is unbearable.
Yet, as all athletes know, those few
extra pounds that usually accompany
our hedonistic indulgences can make it
unbearable while in the midst of heated
activity. You're always the last one
down the court. Your friend can pin
your shoulders to the mat faster than
you ever imagined.
SO WATCH WHAT you eat this
Thanksgiving and Christmas because
the Intramural Sports department has
competition planned for all different
sports late this semester and all of next
just to keep you huffing and puffing un-
til you drop.

Wrestling is the first of the winter
sports and, unfortunately for the
wrestlers, the meet begins the day after
Thanksgiving break. The weigh-in is
November 28 between 11:00 a.m. and
5:30 p.m. at the Sports Coliseum. For
those of you who eat too much turkey,
plan on wrestling at a higher weight than
usual. The single elimination tour-
nament runs from Monday through
Wednesday nights.
The most popular intramural sport at
Michigan is basketball, which starts the
season with between 400 and 500 teams.
Instant scheduling for basketball is run
November 29, 30 and December 1, bet-
ween 11:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at the In-
tramural Sports Building. The three-
game season begins immediately after
Christmas break.
THERE ARE NINE intramural spor-
ts scheduled this winter for interested
participants. They are: inner tube
water polo, swimming, mini soccer,
paddleball (individual and team),
volleyball, ice hockey, badminton and

foul shooting.
Each sport is designed so a team can
enter and compete with other teams. But
you do not have to be on a team to com-
pete; some sports have individual com-
petiton. If you wish to be on a team but
cannot find one yourself, the In-
tramural sports building has a 'need to
be placed file' where a person can leave
his name and the sport he wants to play,
and hope a person looking for players
calls him.
There are even jobs for people
looking to officiate contests. Anyone
can be a referee regardless of
knowledge or past experience.
THE INTRAMURAL sports program
at Michigan is extensive and well-
organized. All men and women students
are eligible for play in every sport.
"Michigan has one of the oldest, most
established programs in the country,"
said Jeanne Monich, assistant director
of campus recreation and IM sports. "It's
really just the tops. The students are
getting the top services and facilities."

sign-up dates and game times, stop at
