Cubs in
4-1 win
NEW YORK (AP) - David
Cone won for the eighth time in nine
decisions and Kevin McReynolds hit
a two-run homer yesterday, leading
the Mets past the Chicago Cubs 4-1
for their seventh victory in eight
games.
The Mets, who lead the National
League East by 10 1/2 games,
lowered their magic number to eight,
pending last night's game between
Pittsburgh and Montreal. New York
has won 17 of its last 22.
Cone, 17-3, struck out 10 in
seven innings for his sixth double-
digit strikeout game this season. He
gave up five hits and walked three.
Terry Leach recorded his third save.

Haluscsak determined
to move ahead of pack

attempt in yesterday's 4-1 Mets win. Webster was called out on the play.

BY ERIC LEMONT
While competing in a conference meet her junior year in high
school, Kim Haluscsak won her race in the mile, set a meet record, and
ran her fastest time ever. Haluscsak's emotions, however, were not
those of joy.
She had wanted to run a 5-minute mile and fell short with her 5:04.6
time. "It was just a goal I had and didn't get," she said.
"She was close to the point of tears," recalls Olmsted Falls track
coach Don Alexander. "She didn't hit the time she wanted to hit."
It was that type of determination that made Haluscsak the number
one miler in Ohio during her junior and senior years, anchoring a high
school team that has won three state championships in the last decade.
NOW HALUSCSAK is a first-year runner at Michigan and
women's cross-country coach Sue Foster couldn't be happier.
"I think she's going to make a great contribution to the team,"
Foster said. "She's very competitive and a real gutsy runner. She's not
afraid to go out at a really hard pace. She's not afraid of anyone."
Haluscsak feels that while she doesn't expect to pull away from her
competition in college like she did in high school, her running style
will remain the same.
"I'll still go out fast but there will be people around me," said
Haluscsak. "I'm not really intimidated (about Big 10 competition), I'm
excited about it. And I'm really excited for my freshman year because
there's no real pressure on me."
But don't believe that Haluscsak will be out there running just for
fun. Haluscsak is an extremely determined runner.
"A good word for her is that she's driven to succeed," Alexander said.
"She sets high standards and she'll work and work until she gets it. I
haven't known her to not to achieve a goal she's set. A lot of people
have the talent but they don't have the work ethic."
THIS WORK ETHIC is demonstratedin the mental training that
Haluscsak undergoes before each race when she imagines herself
running a perfect race.
"I'm just trying to think positively," she explained. "I don't think,
'Oh my God, what if I get a cramp.' I don't let what ifs get in the way.
So many people can run well all year and then choke at the big meets. I
think mental training has been one of my biggest strengths."
For this year, Haluscsak's goals include helping the team reach the
nationals and running her best.
"Winning is not that important," said Haluscsak. "I mean especially
in college when I'm not expecting first place finishes. It's mostly
competition with myself."
Foster is a little more optimistic. She believes Haluscsak has all the
tools to be an All-American by the time she graduates from Michigan,
something Haluscsak wouldn't be too disappointed about.

BY JEFF SHERAN
After two weeks of intense two-a-
day practices, the men's club soccer
team kicked off its season August
27. The squad dropped its first two
matches to Siena Heights College
and national powerhouse Oakland
University, both of which boast
varsity teams, but rebounded to take
its next four decisions.
Michigan edged Spring Arbor
College and the University of
Windsor each by a goal, and then
rolled past Adrian College with an
impressive 3-0 shutout. Similarly,
they met no difficulty in defeating
Schoolcraft College on Wednesday,
~5-1.
With a stubborn defense lead by
stopper Matt Schwarz and goaltender
Mark Kuiper, the Wolverines
maintained a scoreless tie versus
Schoolcraft through the first half.
Midfielder Chris Eadie scored 3:41
into the second half.
Shortly after, Schoolcraft
responded with a goal, but Michigan

daces d
forward Doug Spaemefr countered
with two quick scores, giving the
Wolverines,a 3-1 lead. Matt Dikin
and Steve Burns added two more
goals, rounding out the scoring, and
securing Michigan's fourth
consecutive victory.
HEAD COACH Mike Ruddy
attributed Michigan's second half
success to his team's improved
passing. "Once we got the short
passes working, we were able to take
the ball to the net and capitalize on
our opportunities."
The team's next opponent is
Purdue University, one of two non-
varsity squads on Michigan's
eighteen-game schedule. In the past
three seasons, the Wolverines have
taken two-of-three meetings from the
Boilermakers. Purdue, however, won
last year's match-up 3-2.
The Wolverines have more on
their minds than just their match-up
with the Boilermakers, though. The
team intends to lodge a proposal to

ial challenge

gain varsity status. The proposal,
which includes women's soccer as
well, will be brought before the
Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics on October 13. It entails
making the soccer program a varsity
sport, thereby enabling the teams to
receive much needed funding.
Under the present system, the
team must raise money to pay for
uniforms, travel expenses, coaching
fees, and any additional costs the
team may encounter, such as referees
fees which exceed what the
University allots for such an
expense. Players raise funds by
selling donuts and t-shirts, finding
sponsors, and by donations.
TEAM TREASURER Kurt
Rindfusz concedes, "All the off-the-
field work (fundraising, travel
arrangements, recruiting) does detract
from our work on the field." He adds
that being a varsity team would
make it easier for Michigan to retain
its top players as well as making it
easier to attract top recruits.
Such status would also help the
Wolverines schedule other top
varsity teams, such as Indiana and
Wisconsin. As it stands now, these
teams will not play Michigan, as

they have nothing to gain and much
to lose from a game with a club
team.
A key problem the team faces
revolves around a freeze on the
number of varsity sports allowed at
the university, invoked by the Board
of Regents in 1984. The freeze,
which will remain in effect until
1990 prevents any teams from
attaining varsity status until at least
1990, unless a current varsity team
elects to drop to club sport status.
So for now, the Wolverines must
concentrate on lobbying for the
October proposal. But the first
matter at hand concerns Purdue, who
will travel to Ann Arbor this Sunday
(10:00 a.m., Mitchell Field).

Lions struggling all over
Y THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Guess which coach made the following comments this week:
"We have athletes who can run. Our offense looks as if it's going to be
very explosive. I think we're going to have the capability of scoring from
any place on the field."
Larry McElreavy, head football coach at Columbia University, whose
Lions will take a 41-game losing streak, an NCAA Division I record for
futility, into Saturday's game at Harvard.
