Records smashed at Can-Am

By CHRISTOPHER GERBASI
While Michigan's women's track
team soared this past weekend, the
men's team is still trying to reach its
potential as both squads now look ahead
to their biggest meets of the year.
It wasn't a reflection on the city of
Windsor but at the Can-Am Invitational
the women thinclads ran as if they wan-
ted to leave town in a hurry.
THE WOLVERINE milers and relay
teams sped to their fastest times of the
season and dominated their events.
Perhaps the most impressive event
was the 1500-meter run in which
Michigan claimed the first, third, and
fourth positions. Sue Schroeder set a
school record in the race with a 4:25.8
time, which ranks her as one of the top
two Big Ten milers this season.
Freshman Jennifer Rioux finished
third and her time of 4:29.9 was also
faster than the previous school record,
set by Lisa Larsen last year. Kelly Bert
was fourth at 4:34.
"IT WAS OUR third meet, so we ex-
pectedthe speed to start coming," said
coach Francie Goodridge. "It (the
1500m) was a big confidence booster for
them, to see how good they are and how
far they're ahead of last year."
The Wolverines relay teams swept
the 4 X 200, 4 X 400 and 4 X 800 races.
Dedra Bradley ran well in the 200, while
the 400 team had its best time of the
season and the 800 team came close to
equalling the time of Tennessee, one of
the best relay teams in the country.
"We should have one of the top three
relays teams in the conference," said
Goodridge.
The efforts of high jumpers Angie
Hafner and Dawn Rich who placed one-
two, highlighted the field events. Haf-

ner jumped 5'9" and Rich finished at'
5'7". Both jumpers had several near
misses at clearing the national
qualifying standard of 5'101/2".
THE MEN'S team, however, still has
a distance to go before it can measure
up to other top competitors.
After the weekend's relays at
Western Michigan, coach Jack Harvey
is now pointing to two big meets, the
Central Collegiates and the Big Tens.
"We're not running extremely bad,
we're running okay," said Harvey.-
"But the improvement is needed bet-
ween now and the Centrals (Feb. 18).
Eastern Michigan will be our biggest
competition there." %
Harvey did see some progress being
made at Kalamazoo. Phil Webb ran a
surprising 7.3 in the 55-meter high hur-
dles heats and then had a fine 7.4 time
for a third place finish in the finals.
Derrick Stinson placed second in 7.3

seconds.
Long jumper Vince Bean continues to
leap well coming back after last year's
surgery. Bean jumped 24'8", four in-
ches short of qualifying for the NCAA
Championships. He finished second in
the competition.
Harvey likes the progress of Ron
Simpson, who won the one mile in-
vitatonal in 4:06.7. Simpson has the
potential to qualify for the NCAA's and,
overall, Harvey feels Michigan can
qualify five or six athletes in field even-
ts, perhaps three in the hurdles, and
Todd Steverson in the 600-meter run.
A world record was set at the Relays
by Eastern Michigan's sprint medly
relay team, as Mike Calhoun, Darron
Witherspoonm, Daryl Curry and Earl
Jones set a world record at the meet
with a time of 3:18.7.
The men's team has a meet this
Saturday at Eastern, while the women
have a two-week training period before
hosting the Wolverine Open on Feb. 11,
a meet Goodridge referred to as "The
last big shot at national qualifying per-
formances."
Olrnuplans arrive
SARAJEVO, Yugoslavia (AP) - An
18-member U.S. speed skating team
flew into Sarajevo last night, the first
American athletes to arrive for the XIV
Winter Olympics starting here next
week.
Three members of the squad and the
team's head coach, Dianne Holum, did
not make the trip. They competed in the
women's World All-around Champion-
ships in Deventer, Holland, during the
weekend and failed to join the team as
planned.
"The kids are in good shape so I
would assume they would only do basic
workouts, speed work and familiarize
themselves a little bit with the track
and conditions," team manager Bill
Cushman said.
The ,leadoff event on the Olympic
speed skating oval will be the women's
1,500 meters, scheduled for Feb. 9.
Led by Eric Heiden's unprecedented
sweep of five gold medals, the United
States was the leading speed skating
nation at the 1980 Winter Olympics in
Lake Placid, N.Y., four years ago.
