Women's track steps outside in St. Louis

The women's track team is sharpening its
spikes in preparation for the opening of their
1990 outdoor season tomorrow in a non-scored
meet at Washington University in St. Louis.
Michigan is coming off a successful indoor
season and is looking forward to getting a
jump on spring with a strong performance this
weekend. Several schools around the country
will preview their field events in competition
for the first time this year. The Wolverines
will use the match for preparation of their relay
and short distance runners in the outdoors.
"The purpose of the meet is to start early,"
coach James Henry said.
"We're anxious to get our throwers,
sprinters and hurdlers back into action."
The team took advantage of the mild
weather last week to work outdoors in pre-
paration for the upcoming meet.
Henry looks for a combination of old and
new faces to land strong performances in their
respective events this weekend.
Senior tri-captain and multi-event athlete
Alana Davis will compete in the long jump
and 400 meter hurdles. Davis finished fourth in
the pentathalon in last year's Big Ten Outdoor
Senior high jumper Lisa DeVries, who,
Henry described as, "one of the most consistent
jumpers on the team," will also look to post a
strong showing after finishing third in the Big
Ten Indoor Championships.

in the Big Ten Indoors for a fifth place finish
will compete in the long jump as well as the
100 meter dash and 4 X 100 meter relay.
The 4 X 100 relay team of Michele Bishop,
Gillian Osborne, Dyan Jenkins and Suzette
Thweat will take their school record of 47.2
seconds into the upcoming outdoor season.
Henry believes that this relay team has a good
chance of breaking that record tomorrow in St.
Not everyone will make the trip to St.
Louis though. The team wili leave its long
distance runners behind to work with assistant
coach Sue Foster.
After this weekend's meet the team will
begin preparing for the North Carolina State
Invitational to take place a week from
tomorrow in Raleigh, NC.

The Pistons-Hornets game won't be the only excitement at the Palace onO
March 28. That night, during halftime, intramural three-on-three basketball
teams from Michigan, Michigan State, Saginaw Valley State, and Western
Michigan will compete in the Schick Super Hoops Regional
The four teams advanced to the championship game by finishing as the
top two men's and women's teams in the regional tournament held at
Michigan February 17. The men's championship pits a Western Michigan
team against a Michigan State team, while the women's game features a
Michigan team against a team from Saginaw Valley State.
Michigan's team, which has now reached the regional four years in a
row, consists of seniors Anne Marie Abundis, Nancy Sassack, Kim
Edelman, and Kim Sigmund.
"We want to win because it's our last year," Abundis said, "but we're
also more relaxed-we're into savoring our last year and having fun at the
Piston game. I feel a lot more comfortable this year because it is my fourth
year and I know what to expect."
Abundis described the tournament as being more competitive than in the
"This year the regionals had 17 teams-last year they had seven,"
Abundis explained. She added that the competition within the University to
get to the regional tournaments was also tougher than in years past.
Abundis and Edelman serve as the "shooting guards" while Sassick and
Sigmund, both of whom are over six feet tall, play power forward-type
This is the sixth season for the Schick Super Hoops tournament, and
more than 200,000 students from nearly 800 colleges and universities
participated this year.
