'M' thinclads take third at LSU

It was a tough a meet as they come
for the Michigan men's track team,
who managed to place third in the
LSU Inivitational. LSU easily out-
distanced the rest of the field, scoring
119 to Wisconsin's 36 and Michigan's
35.5. However, the Wolverines still
managed to grab their share of top
The biggest surprise for the thin-
clads came in the 3000m where senior
Chris Brewster won in 8:23.60. What
made the victory surprising was
Brewster had not competed since the
NCAA Indoor Championships when he
had to pull out of the race due to injury.
"I WAS happy with Brewster. He
was questionable for the meet this
weekend," said head coach Jack Har-
vey. "His turnout in winning the
3000m was a big boost for us."
Brewster was followed in the race
by teammates John Chambers and
Joe Schmidt who finished third and
fifth, respectively. Schmidt, a junior
out of Grosse Point Woods, also took
second in the steeplechase in 9:09.88,
just four seconds off his career best.
Sophomore Rollie Hudson managed
to earn some points, taking sixth in

the 1500m in 3:55.81.
IN THE shorter events, Michigan
came up kicking with wins in both the
110 high hurdles and in the 400m.
Once again, senior Thomas Wilcher
cranked out a win over tough com-
petition in 13.6, just .08 off his best.
Todd Steverson ran equally well in the

400m, clocking in a 46.43. Steversen
was followed by Claude Tiller who
placed fourth and Bill Davis who took

that finished second. The quartet of
Tiller, Davis, Steverson and Omar

Davidson finished in 3:09.31. Other
Michigan finishers were Matt Butler
who took fifth in the 800m and David-
son, Steversen and Wiley Boulding,
who finished fourth, fifth, and sixth in
the 200m.
MAKING A successful move from
football to track, senior Mike Krauss
flung the shot 47-10% for fourth and
the discus 161-10 for fifth. Meanwhile
freshman J.J. Grant is finishing up
spring football practice and should be
back in full form in two weeks.

"We'll try him out in the discus as
well as tossing him back into the
In the jumping events, Butch Star-
mack took third, leaping 48-11 in only
two jumps and Scott Crawford jum-
ped 24-5 to take third in the long jump.
Crawford later tied for second in the
high jump, leaving the bar at 6-9%.
But the clincher race didn't come
until the 4x100m relay when the
Wolverines dropped the baton and lost
their chance at a second place finish
for the meet.

Poor play, lack of concentration,
and the elements all conspired to give
the Michigan men's golf team a thir-
teenth place finish in the eighteen

Head coach Jim Carras was "not
happy at all" with his teams perfor-
mance in the Huntington, West
Virginia Tournament.
The problem was not the two top
scores, as seniors John Codere and
Peter Savarino turned in their usual
solid performances. Once again it was
the last three scores that dragged the
Wolverines down.
Especially damaging was the mid-
dIe round in which coach Carras said
he witnessed "the worst scores I've
seen in my eight years here at
Michigan. We had to take three
eighties and at this level its im-
possible to win like that. We just had a
total mental breakdown. It was ab-
solutely horrendous. I let them hear
about it and I don't expect it to happen
According to Carras the weather
was a factor in his team's dismal per-
formance. "It's a long time to be out
there, especially with the cold and
windy weather we were experien-

Although the Wolverines have not
been impressive up to this point,
Carras has not lost hope for th
season. "We .started off badly last
year, and came back. We were also
without one of our top players (senior
Chris Westfall)."
Westfall is now ready to play,
making Carras' main concern the
erratic play of his freshmen. Bob
Papp and Hersh Patel are two main
sources of frustration for Carras. "I
was not at all pleased with their play this
weekend. I don't know if it's that they
are pressing too much or what. I kno4

eventually they will on a consistent
basis. There's no question about their
Something must come together soon
for this team. The rugged Big Ten
season is rapidly approaching and
Michigan's main rivals seem to be
ready. In fact the winner of the Mar-
shall Invitational was Ohio State, with
Purdue and Michigan State both
finishing ahead of Michigan. i
Meanwhile coach Carras remains
optimistic. "We'll have Chris back
next weekend. Maybe he'll be a
catalyst. We jut need some consisten-
cy." And quick.
