Although the Michigan men's
indoor track team didn't show an
optimal level of improvement at the
Michigan State Relays this weekend,
coach Jack Harvey is not ready to hit
the panic button.
"I'm unconcerned at this point
because we're better than we showe
this weekend," Harvey said of the
Wolverines' lackluster team
performance in a non-scoring meet.
"It's hard to chastise a team when
you have members who did well."
Michigan's better individual
efforts included a first-place finish by
Kraig Watkins in the 800-meter run,
coming in at 1:53.6, and a first-place
performance by Rudy Redmond in
the 55-meter high hurdles with a
time of 7.58 seconds. .
The Wolverines also had second-
place showings from Brad Holwerda
in the high jump, Neal Newman in
the 600, Phil Ferguson in the 200,
and Matt Scharl in the pole vault.
"I think the best performances we
had were from Watkins, Redmpnd,
Ferguson, and Newman," Harvey
said. "Newman ran an excellent 600
and Scharl did well in the pole vault.
Other than that, nothing was that
spectacular. I was hoping for better
performances -I think we're ready
One disappointment for Harvey
was the performance of pole vaulter
Brad Darr, usually one of Michigan's
most consistent performers, who
failed to clear a height of 16-feet-1.
"Brad had problems with his
steps. He came in at 16-(feet)-1, rose
high above the bar, but kept landing
on it." Harvey explained. "But I'm
not real worried about it. He's
jumping well, but it was just an off-
night. If your steps aren't on, that
makes it very difficult."
Harvey was pleased with Scharl's
second-place effort in the pole vault,
but he noted that, "He's got to go
higher (than 16-feet-1) to be
competitive in the Big Ten."
The coach summed up his team's
performance as a whole by saying
that, "Our performances were good,
but it was not an improvement. The
guys can get better, but we've got to
get it out of them."
Harve; is looking for better
performances at next week's Central
Collegiate meet in Madison, the
team's first scoring meet.
'M' women practice
hard; finish strong

Women's track coach James Henry seems to have a philosophy that
while hard work may hurt in the short run, what happens in the end is
what's important. And although the Wolverines have looked stronger, they
still gave a commendable effort at Michigan State this weekend.
"We competed through a hard week of workouts," Henry explained, "and
performance-wise it showed. We were still competitive, but it wasn't as
snappy or quick as it was a few weeks ago. We competed based on the
competition and circumstances, but we and I knpw that it can be a lot better.
They (the team) showed what they had through a week of hard training."
In addition to the Spartans, Michigan competed against compass rivals
Eastern, Central, and Western Michigan this weekend.
One highlight for the Wolverines was a school-record performance by
first-year performer Lisa Adams in the triple jump, who also won the 600
meter run. However, her leap of 37-feet-2 1/2 inches only managed to net
her a fourth-place showing in the competition.
"That shows that this was a really good meet," Henry said. "The
competition was outstanding for the triple jump."
Michigan was formidable in the 3000, where the Wolverines swept the
competition. Mindy Rowland finished first in a very easy 9:45.35 while
Kim Haluscsak and Carol Boyd finished second and third with times of
10:04 and 10:05.7 respectively.
"Mindy's run was easy in the sense that she lapped a few runners," Henry
said. "I don't think she'll have any competition until the conference, but I
don't think she'll qualify for nationals until then unless there are club
athletes to compete against her. Better competition will bring out her best
Other first-place performances for the Wolverines included Megan Nortz
in the mile with a time of 5:11.5 and Carrie Yates, Colleen Yuhn, Amy
Duchholz, and Chris Tyler in the two mile relay, clocking in at 9:36.4.
"I don't think we improved as much as we had in the first three weeks."
Henry said. "We're starting to settle in. And the hard training is starting to
effect them. It hurts in the short run, but I'm sure it will help in the end."

"We're a better team (than
Michigan State) on five
events...(the horizontal bar) is a
weakness we're gonna have to work
on," coach Bob Darden said.
The Spartans placed four
gymnasts at 9.35 or above on the
horizontal bar, for a total score of
46.70. In comparison, the
Wolverines' high score was 9.15 en
route to a 44.35 total.
According to Angelotti, part of
the problem may be that the high
bar is the last event, and the
gymnasts were already tired for the
Despite the team's high bar
woes, Friday's results were an
improvement. "It was one of our
better performances (on high bar),
but we still have some polishing to
do," he said.
"As a team, we're getting there.
We're handling the pressure a little
Michigan was strong through
the first four events, totalling
181.35. The floor exercise featured
five nines, while the vault
showcased the Wolverines' most
consistency, with all six gymnasts
"You can't ask for better,"
Spartan coach Rick Atkinson
knew his squad was performing
below its ability, reflected by the
team's 180.00. "We were tight on
floor exercise and pommel horse,
but we came back real strong,"
The Wolverines amassed a .30
deficit after the parallel bar
competition, which set up the final
high bar confrontation.
Despite the Wolverines'
individual successes, Angelotti and
co-captain Jim Round still found
losing a little hard to take.
"It was a pressure meet," Round
said. "A lot of coaches wanted us to
win. In that case, it's
