Penn State ni
by John Niyo
Penn State seemed to always cross the finish
line just in front of Michigan's runners last
Saturday. By doing so, the Nittany Lions came
away with the women's team title at-the Western
Ontario Cross Country Invitational spoiling the
debut of a new, healthier Wolverine squad
"They just seemed to be right in front of us,"
head coach Sue Foster said. "I was basically
pleased with the way the team ran, but obviously
we were upset we didn't win. It was very close."
Team scores showed how close the meet
really was. Penn State had 68 points while
Michigan was right on their heels with 70
points. The host school, Western Ontario,
finished third with 81 points but the rest of the
14 team field was far behind. Eastern Michigan
was fourth with 158 points.
The meet was the first of the season for two
of the squad's top seven performers. All-Big Ten
runner Mindy Rowand and highly-touted
freshman Molly McClimmon were both beset by
preseason injuries and were unable to run in the
Kansas Relays. Rowand picked up right where
she left off last year, leading all Michigan
runners and finishing fourth overall.
"Molly was impressive. That was really good
for her first race of the year," Foster said.
Next for the Wolverines was senior Jennifer
McPeck in eighth place. For McPeck, the meet
was a homecoming of sorts.
"Jennifer is from London, Ontario so she
knows a lot of people there. She was really fired
up about this meet and she ran a very strong race
for us," Foster said.
Foster also made special mention of the
performance of junior Amy Bannister. Bannister
crossed the finish line in 17th place even though
she was unable to practice Thursday or Friday.
The Wolverines will be in action again this
Friday at the Eastern Michigan Invitational in

PONTIAC, MI (AP) - Barry
Sanders has decided it's not worth
the price to make a fashion
statement in the NFL.
Sanders, the Detroit Lions prize
rookie running back who won the
Heisman Trophy last year at
Oklahoma State, appeared well on
his way to a 200-yard game Sunday
But he suffered a hip pointer

"I learned today that you need
them. I'll wear them from now
Lions coach Wayne Fontes said
Sanders probably could have gone
back into the game, but he wasn't
taking any chances with "the
franchise" in a game that was
already out of hand.
"It was a direct shot from the
hip," Sanders said. "It just kept
getting stiffer and stiffer. I wanted
Tomczak, who had completed
only 40 percent of his passes this
season, kept Chicago unbeaten,

rout of the winless Lions.
