Shock the world!!
Griddes is back"'~t
What more needs to be said. After a year of painful hiatus, Griddes
picks have returned to the Daily.
Rumors had been circulating for weeks that Griddes may return. In
fact, a little over a week ago, former President Ronald Reagan,
,exclaimed, "Well, when I heard the Michigan Daily was starting Griddes
again, I went to get fluid drained from my brain so that I could make
acute and accurate choices."
Here's how it works. Select the 20 teams you think will win next
weekend. Also, fill in what you think the score will be when Michigan
takes on UCLA. (We need that in case there's a tie.)
Whoever correctly picks the most games will win breakfast for two
at O'Sullivan's Eatery and Pub. O'Sullivan's also wants it known
that despite the fact that they are Irish, they were rooting for Michigan.
Drop off your picks at the Daily no later than 5 p.m. Friday to be
eligible. The Daily is located at 420 Maynard on the second floor.

Beleaguered runners place first in Kansas
by Taylor Lincoln
Daily Sports Editor
Karen Welke and Jenifer Mc Peck
led the injury-riddled women's cross-
country team to a first-place finish at
this weekend's University of Kansas
Mc Peck and Welke were the only
runners for Michigan with any sig-
nificant experience with cross-
country at the varsity level.
Michigan placed first in the field
with 36 points. Kansas and Eastern
Michigan, the only other formidable
competitors, followed with 43 and
45 points respectively. Cross
country scores equal the sum of the
overall finishes for each team's top
Head coach Sue Foster was pleased
with her team's performance in its
first meet, especially considering
that Michigan was without three of
its top runners.
"It was a good effort for us," said
Foster. "Karen and Jenifer both ran
very gutsy races."
Filling in for the injured runners
were Amy Bannister and Chris
Tyler, both of whom compete as
half-milers during the track season.
"They're both half-milers, but
they're also both very strong
runners. We couldn't have done
anything without them this
weekend," said Foster.
"I think they're going to be very
valuable. I anticipate both of them
being among our top seven runners
after the others return."
Foster said that the status on two
of her three injured runners is day-to-
day, while condition of the third
runner, Kim Haluscsak, is more
Mindy Rowan, an all-Big Ten
runner last year, is returning from a
strained muscle and Foster expects
her to run at next week's Western
First-year runner Molly McCli-
mon is recovering from a knee
injury and also should compete next
Haluscsak, meanwhile, is plagued
by an ailing leg and it is not known
when she will be back.
Michigan's first important test is
not until September 29 when the
Wolverines will compete in the
Eastern Michigan Invitational. The
EMU meet will act as a barometer
for the team's prospects this year
because several Big Ten teams will

you jump, shout, scream - you

Saturday I was really tired. I don't

included Karen Marshall, who hit
.258, and Kim Clover, who hit
.462. Overall, the Wolverines
actually edged the Mountaineers in
hitting percentage, .236 to .235.
But it was too many misplays
that kept victory out of Michigan's
tired reach. "We're still plagued by
reception errors," said Davis. "We
had 20 versus West Virginia -
that's five points a game we gave
Errors also a played a role in
Michigan's loss to Bowling Green
the night before. Although the
Wolverines committed 15 errors to
the Falcons seven, there were
strong individual performances.
Clover and junior Julia Sturm hit a
solid .346 and .306 respectively,
while Kristen Lang amassed 16
kills. Autumn Collins contributed
The Wolverines carry their 5-2
non-conference record into Big Ten
play on Wednesday, where they
hope to improve on last year's 1-17
Said Davis: "This team is
going to improve over the next six
weeks. I don't think this one loss
will impede our progress."

Ex-Tiger Bill Freehan is ready to go
to bat for the Michigan baseball
team as their new coach. The
team began practicing last week.

building stronger baseball ties with
other Michigan schools such as
Eastern and Central Michigan and
has mentioned to his players the
possibility of using his baseball
connections to bring in the outside
assistance of players like former
Tiger great Al Kaline. But just as
important in building a strong base-
ball team, Freehan believes, is mak-
ing the game fun for the players.
While practices are only a week
old, some Wolverines have already
taken notice of this attitude.
Said Wolverine pitcher Terryi
Woods: "The reputation of our team1
last year was a lot of hard work.
Coach Freehan wants us not to get
burnt out. That's the way he said it.

He wants to make it fun for people
so they want to come to practice.
And it has been fun."
And while Freehan's version of a
good time probably doesn't include
giving his team members hot foots,
it does entail having the opportunity
to positively influence his players.
"I'd like to have an impact physi-
cally and mentally on some of these
young men in their baseball lives
and in their academic and per sonal
lives," he said.
As Woods put it, "He's as excited
to be here as we are. We don't know
him and he doesn't know us. And he
wants to get to know us as well as
we know each other."
