Runners seek a new balance
By IAN RATNER
Although Michigan football
appears unable to compensate for the
loss of their top gun Jim Harbaugh,
cross-country coach Ron Warhurst
does not envision his runners
suffering the same fate.
The loss of last year's Big Ten
champion Chris Brewster will hurt,
but should not cripple the team. The
cross-country squad will feature last
year's Big Ten runner-up, junior All-
American John Scherer, and talented
sophomore Brad Barquist.
With eleven runners capable of
filling only seven spots, Warhurst
expects improvement over last year's
fifth-place finish, despite capturing
the first and second best individual
times in the Big Tens.
"I WOULD be very, very dis-
appointed if we didn't place in the
top five of the Big Tens," said
Warhurst. "We're considerably
deeper. We'll miss Chris Brewster,
but we've really tightened up our
situation a lot."
The improvement is due to the
addition of newcomers Joe Mc-
Known, Darryl Eddy, and Tony
Carna, and junior transfers John
McKay and Ryan Robinson. A
"scrub" by his own admission during
last year's campaign, Eddy surprised
the field by taking third in last
week's time trials behind Scherer and
Freshman McKnown and Carna,
Ohio state champions in their
respective divisions, will provide
much needed depth.
The top nine finishers from last
Friday's time trials will compete in
Saturday's Michigan Invitational in
Mt. Pleasant, Mich. which features
Eastern Michigan, Western Mich-
igan, Central Michigan, Michigan
State and University of Detroit.
This tune-up for the Big Tens
will provide a measuring stick as to
who will capture the seven spots in
the ensuing meets. For the moment,
Warhurst will hold out transfers
McKay and Robinson, w h o s e
eligibility to compete has yet to be
Joe Schmidt, the team's sole
senior, junior Tim Fraleigh, and
sophomore Jeff Barnett round out
this weekend's competitors for
Michigan. Although Schmidt placed
only seventh in the time trials,
Warhurst expects the Gross Pointe
native to provide strong finishes as
the season unfolds.
"I expect good things from
Scherer, Barquist, and Schmidt," said
Warhurst while noting that last
week's top seven finishers will not
necessarily represent Michigan in the
meets to follow. "We're not prepared
to run a championship meet. I
usually like two weeks of practice
under our belts (before competing).

' SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -
Rick Reuschel pitched a two-hitter
:as the San Francisco Giants won
their sixth straight game by beating
;,the Houston Astros 4-0 yesterday.
Reuschel (13-7) pitched his fourth
-shutout of the season - the first
:since joining the Giants in late
August - and his 12th complete
game. Both total are tops in the
'National League. He walked one,
struck out five and did not allow a
Brunner past first base.
Danny Darwin (8-10) matched
Reuschel until the sixth, when he
allowed two-out walks to Candy
Maldonado and Will Clark and a
two-run double to Bob Brenly.
The Giants' winning streak is
their longest of the season, and the
victory moved them a step closer to
;clinching their first division title
since 1971. The loss dropped the
third-place Astros nine and one-half
:games off the Dace.

Eagles Coach Buddy Ryan said
Carter would be able to carve a
prominent niche on the team.
"If he's as good as I think he is,
he'll compete for the starting job,"
Ryan said. "We know he'll havebto

Carter, while saying he wants to
become a starter, indicated he won't

of me and I can learn a lot from
them," he said. "I'm basically not

Carter also said he had stayed in
