Schmidt set to

leg it out

By GREG MOLZON
All-American Sue Schroeder is
unquestionably the top runner for the
women's cross country team, but the
success of this year's team just may
depend on the legs of Schroeder's
roommate and best friend, Cathy
Schmidt.
Schmidt spent this past summer in
Europe and trained harder than ever
before. She had hoped to do really well
in this, her final year at Michigan, but
a leg injury sustained while training
has put a damper on her season so far.
SHE WILL begin her comeback this
weekend at the Indiana Invitational
after sitting out last weekend's meet.
Although it's questionable whether
Schmidt will be 100 percent during the
cross country season, fellow co-
captain Schroeder believes she can
still contribute.

"I think she'll be able to help the
team," said Schroeder. "She's a real
competitor and will always run as
best as she can."
Although they are roommates,
Schmidt and Schroder insist there is
no competition or rivalry between
them. They have what Schroeder
terms a "unique situation."
"WE'RE NOT really in com-
petition," Schroeder said, "but we
can help each other out with our
weaknesses. She's a really strong
runner in the shorter distances, but I
have more endurance for the longer
races."
It's the shorter races which Schmidt
enjoys more and excels in, however.
She runs indoor track and holds the
school record for the 1000 meters with
a time of 2:44.15.
Schmidt began running at Grosse

Pointe North High School after
starting out as a swimmer. Both of
her brothers had been runners there
and at Michigan; so Schmidt also star-
ted track because "my brothers-were
good runners and it was expected of
me to run too," she said.
SHE ENJOYED running more than
swimming. "It (running) was really
easy for me and I never had to train
that hard in high school," she added.
Schmidt followed in her brothers'
footsteps by coming to Michigan, and
with hard work she has become one of
the team's best performers. Her con-
tributions don't stop with her running
ability, though. She is a co-captain
and a definite leader of the team.
The team can't wait for Schmidt to
return and regain her top form. As
junior runner Cheri Sly said, "She's
one of our top runners and when she
comes back, it'll make the team a lot
tougher."
HEAD COACH Sue Parks believes

the team will need Schmidt if it hopes
to beat out Illinois for second place in
the Big Ten Championships, and
Schroeder also thinks that Schmidt's
performance will have a significant
bearing on the season.
"For us to have a shot at the
nationals," Schroeder said, "She'll
have to be in the top five."
Schmidt, an accounting major, has
found her injury severely frustrating.
If she can't return to top form during
this cross country season, she hopes to
be prepared for the upcoming season
in track. But for now, her mind is on
cross country.
With Schmidt's help, the team
finished third last season after
placing ninth the previous year with
the same club.
With virtually the same team retur-
ning intact again, Schmidt may just
help the Wolverines capture second
place in the Big Tep.

. Senior Cathy Schmidt has returned from a leg injury to train with the
women's cross country team for their upcoming Big Ten meets. Her
return should bolster the already strong team, which finished first in last
weekend's Western Ontario Invitational.
IL-I

In yet another late-breaking scoop,
the Daily has uncovered the real
motive behind the Soviets' arms-
reduction proposal.
Chief Soviet negotiator Victor Kar-
pov was overheard yesterday telling
an attache "Arms reduction is OK,
but what I really want is for relations
with the U.S. to improve so I can get
my hands on some Griddes ballots."
Aha! Karpov must be after a
Dooley's guest pass good for two, plus
a full-tray Sicilian pizza, Chicago stuf-
fed pizza, or whole sub sandwich from
Pizza Express.
He'll have trouble winning, though.
Karpov is reported to be high on the
Red Badgers of Courage. And he'll
have to negotiate with the Daily
before he can enter.

Tigers cr
By TOM KEANEY
Special to the Daily
DETROIT - Darrel Evans was all
4he offense the Detroit Tigers needed
OPast night as the American League
ome-run leader bashed two more
'four-baggers, leading the Tigers to a
6-1 victory over Toronto.
Evans got to loser Doyle Alexander
(16-10) early with a solo smash in the
first, and added a two-run job in the
third, his 39th of the season.
FRANK TANANA improved his
,record to 11-14. The left-hander went
the full nine, giving up nine hits and
- striking out four.

rush Jays
The Blue Jays' only run came in the
seventh when Damaso Garcia
knocked home Garth Iorg on a
sacrifice fly to left. Toronto could do
no more, however, as the AL East
leaders stranded nine runners.
The Tigers picked up three unear-
ned runs in their half of the seventh.
Lou Whitaker led off with a single to
left and scored on Evans' single and
two throwing errors by Jesse Barfield
and Ernie Whitt.
The Blue Jays will again try to clin-
ch a tie for the AL East title tonight in
Detroit.
