'M' women tune up
for track BigTen's

Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's indoor track team will look to cool down Friday
at the Eastern Michigan Classic in Ypsilanti after a strong showing at last
weekend's home meet.
"This weekend we're kind of approaching it as a low-key meet since the
Big Ten (Championship) is coming up," assistant coach Sue Foster said.
"My distance runners are running shorter events and (head coach) James
Henry is letting his runners pick what they want to run in. It's basically a
tune-up event for the Big Ten (held next week)."
"One of the things we're looking for is to get out all of the cobwebs,"
Henry said. "There's a few unanswered questions from individual
performances that haven't been solidified yet. Other than that, it's basically
Friday's non-scoring meet pits the Wolverines against the usual crop of
Michigan schools as well as a few Canadian schools.
"We're not really looking for outstanding performances - we'd rather
save it for next week," Foster said. "Other than the 4 by 800 relay,
everything should just be okay."
Henry said long jumper Rhonda Ricketts, high jumper Lisa DeVries, and
hurdler Suzie Thweatt are all looking to build on impressive performances
from last week to strengthen their positions for the upcoming Big Ten

Coming off of a sluggish performance at last weekend's Central
Collegiates, the Michigan men's indoor track team is looking for a spark at
Friday's Eastern Michigan Classic in Ypsilanti.
"The team's been working pretty hard and they came out flat," assistant
coach Ron Warhurst said. "Hopefully this weekend the performance will be
better since we're tuning up for the Big Tens in Bloomington."
Warhurst is banking on a strong showing from pole vaulter Brad Darr
this weekend. "Darr did pretty well last week and he likes to jump there (at
Eastern)," Warhurst explained. "He needs to dol7 feet, 8 inches to qualify
for the NCAA- we hope to see him do that this weekend. Different places
are different- based on pits and runways. Brad seems to like Eastern."
The Wolverines also hope for a strong performance from high jumper
"Holwerda jumped 7-11/2 last week, likes Eastern Michigan, and should
go for 7-21/2 this weekend, which is the NCAA provisional standard," War-
hurst said. "He looks like he's about third in the Big Ten at this point."
Warhurst said that the workouts in the last few weeks had been tough
but, "We're starting to lighten up on them. Hopefully they're fresher than
last week. They'd better perform better- we've got potential."
