Michigan X- country looks to
run over Big Ten, Jayhawks

Daily Sports Contributor
Although the men's cross
country team has made great strides
in the past few weeks, the Michigan
State Invitational on Saturday will
give the Wolverines an opportunity
to see the true degree of their
Joining the Wolverines at the
Invitational will be teams from both
Ohio State and Michigan State.
However, the team that Michigan
will be most eager to face is Kansas,
who earlier in the year manhandled
the Wolverines at the Kansas
At the race, eight Jayhawk
runners waltzed across the finish line
before Darrel Eddie managed to cross
the tape first for the Wolverines.
Michigan eventually placed fourth at
As far as Saturday's race, head
coach Ron Warhurst is hoping that
his team can soundly defeat both
Michigan State and Ohio State. But
when it comes to the immensely
talented Jayhawk team, Warhurst is
realistic and knows that if the
Wolverines defeat Kansas it will be a
However, Warhurst is aiming to
break up the Jayhawks' stranglehold
on the top finishes. "This will be a
good test for us to see how much
we've improved," Warhurst said.
A tremendous bonus for the
Wolverines is the fact that the race
will be run at a distance of 8,000
meters, which will undoubtedly
enhance the rookie runners'
performances of a week ago. This
year's Wolverine squad is comprised
mainly of first-year runners.
The frosh were stretched to the
limit last Friday at EMU when they
were forced to run at a lengthy
distance of 10,000 meters. The
standard high school race is run at
5,000 meters. Therefore, the 8,000
meter race at Michigan State this
Saturday has been well received by
the rookie runners.
"They're pretty pumped up about
it," Warhurst said.
Warhurst still can't get over the
fact that the rookie runners have
become so predominant in the
Wolverine's results each week.
"I'm really excited about having
this many good youngsters at one
time," said Warhurst, "We have
seven freshman up there in the top
nine and they're racing well and
learning a lot."

Conference up for
grabs for 'M' stickers
by Jamie Burgess
Daily Sports Writer
Heading into Illinois with a 2-1 conference record, the Wolverine field
hockey squad faces what should be its toughest game of the season.
Michigan warms-up with Northern Illinois on Saturday, and then
challenges nationally-ranked Northwestern before heading back Sunday.
Northwestern, the NCAA's fourth-ranked team, has played at a near
.900 clip in its quest to win the title. The first ever Midwest Collegiate
Field Hockey Conference Championship will be awarded to the team that
survives with the best record after the double round-robin season.
Here's a look at the six-team conference that battles into November:
Iowa -- The Hawkeyes have faired well against Michigan teams,
having beaten Michigan 3-1 and crushed the Spartans 12-0. Their all-
time record versus Michigan is 16-0. Rookie Kristy Gleason, last
week's Player of the Week, is a pleasant frosh surprise with 13 goals and
four assists. If Northwestern can't amass enough wins for the title, expect
the Hawks to be in the top spot in November.
Michigan - The Wolverines are looking to overcome the setback of a
1-6--1 conference record last year. But 1989 is already looking up, as
the team has snatched one more conference victory than it had all last
year. A strong finish will depend on the play of seniors Judy Burinskas
(forward) and Sharon Cantor (midfielder). The team can only hope that
goalkeeper Joanne Green stays healthy, as her frosh back-up Jennifer
Stevens is injured and not travelling with the squad.
Michigan State - It's been a slow and trying start for the green team
as the Spartans have dropped both conference games, to Iowa and
Michigan. One bright spot has been goalkeeper Susan Roberts, who with
six games in goal, is a league standout with an .800 save percentage.
Northern Illinois - The Huskies split their first two conference
games, the loss being a close match against the powerful Wildcats. Their
match against the Wolverines this weekend is pivotal for them to stay in
the hunt for the title.
Northwestern - An array of players have come to the forefront to
lead the Wildcats. Most teams at NU don't enjoy anywhere near the
success as its stickers, who have been led by seniors Sue Novack and Kim
Metcalf. Michigan's venture there this Sunday will demand an unusually
sound game if Northwestern is to fall for the first time.
Ohio State - Despite fine showings by Kim Finlayson (8 goals, 2
assists), Sandy Loeper (8 goals, 8 assists), the Buckeyes are a mediocre
team in the standings. Having posted a 4-4 overall record, with two
losses in the conference, OSU is no longer a legitimate threat. They fell
to Michigan, 5-2.
Women runners set
sights on MSU meet__

Daily Cross Country Writer
Head coach Sue Foster and the
women's cross country team have
.mapped out a pretty simple game
plan this week for the Michigan
State Invitational on Saturday.
"We've been talking a lot about
trying to win the meet," Foster
First-year runner Molly
McClimmon added: "We're out
there to win. That's our goal. The
last couple of meets we've been
really close. So now we're un-
derstanding that every single place
That lesson is one the Wol-
verines have learned rather quickly.
Two weeks ago they came just two
points away from victory at the
Western Ontario Invitational. Then,
last week, Central Michigan edged
out Michigan by a single point for
second place. Indiana, who sports
the nation's top runner, 1988
NCAA champion, Michelle Pek-
kers, finished first.
To place first this weekend,
Michigan needs to defeat Big Ten
foes Michigan State and Ohio State
along with the University of Kan-
sas. The team already ran against
and beat the Spartans and Jayhawks,
but Ohio State is a new face.
"We haven't faced them yet, but
they don't seem to be very strong
this year," Foster said.
After seeing impressive starts
from Mindy Rowland, Jennifer
McPeck, McClimmon, and Karen
Welke, Foster's optimism seems
"We are right where we should
be. The girls are probably pretty
tired right now because we are
running hard in practice. But later
in the season when we give them
some rest, they'll be fine."
World Champs start training
camp, entertain local media

WINDSOR-Forget the Tigers,
it's over. Forget the Lions, did they
ever start? It's once again basketball
season. The Detroit Pistons, check
that, The World Champions have
officialy started training camp.
The team opened its doors to the
media last night and the first
question on everyone's mind was,
now that they have won it all, do
they have any motivation to repeat?
John Salley didn't hesitate to,
answer why he would remain intense
this season. "I like parades, it's a
personal thing. I like jewels, and I
like endorsements. I really like
Isiah Thomas took the more
seriousapproach. "We're going to
try to become as good a basketball
team as we can. Our ultimate goal is
to win a national championship, not
to repeat, not to duplicate last sea-
son, but to go out and win."
Bill Laimbeer was the only one
who wasn't happy about returning to
the court. "Would you be looking
forward to another 82 game grind?"
There were several new faces in
uniform, including former Michigan
player Mark Hughes. Hughes will
have to battle David Greenwood,
Scott Hastings and William Bedford
for the final few spots on the already
deep Piston bench.
Hughes has worked on his game
all summer. He played with the
Pistons in their two-and-a-half-week
summer league. He also joined the
Ann Arbor summer league, and
when he wasn't playing he was
working out at Oakland University.
"He's improved. I think he has a
chance to make it in this league, but
it will be a tough fight with all the
people we have," head coach Chuck
"Prior to acquiring Greenwood,
he definitely was the number one
consideration," Piston's general
manager Jack McCloskey said.
"Now it just creates a little bit of a
problem for him. He's a player thatW
if something goes wrong, if anyone
goes down or gets hurt, he's going
to be a part of this team."
Hughes admits it's going to be a
"It's a big change," Hughes said.
"To come here is taking a big step.
It's the next level. It's just like
being a freshman again in college."
He's hip, hes slick and he's only 3 months old.
He's got John Travolta's smile. Kirstie Alley's eyes.

Laimbeer was quick' to point out
that every new Piston player has to
earn the team's respect on the court
before being accepted. "Most of the
guys coming in now are basically
funny looking, and we get a lot of
laughs out of them. They have to
prove themselves on the basketball
court before we take them ser-
