Women runners can see for miles

by Tom Kent
Daily Sports Writer
Although hundreds of miles
apart, the two divisions of the
temporarily segregated Michigan
women's track team celebrated the
coming of spring- gaining respect
on the national level in Kansas, and
dominating local competition East
Lansing.
While their distance teammates
were in Lawrence, Kansas,
Wolverine sprinters and hurdlers
spent most of their Saturday running
circles around the regatta in East
Lansing.
"We had an average day," coach
James Henry said. "The competition
wasn't what we had wanted it to be,
but we had some performances that I
was very pleased with."
The sprinters and hurdlers knew
that the competition would be
moderate in East Lansing, and
complacency was an issue. But a
new disposition prevailed.
"We all just had kind of had an
attitude," senior tri-captain Dyan
Jenkins said. "It was a nice day, and
we just decided to enjoy ourselves,
have a good time, and do what we do
best- run."
Jenkins certainly did do what she
does best. She finished first and
posted a personal best time of 24.5
in the 200 meters, and was runner-
up in the 100 meters. Jenkins

finished a tenth of a second behind
Suzette Thweatt, who won the 100
meters in a time of 12.2. The
victory virus also plagued Lisa
Adams. She won the 400 meter
hurdles in a time of 65.5, and
finished fifth in the 100 meters.
Senior sprinter Alana Davis took the
weekend off to rest up for the Penn

ready in the next couple of weeks
we're going to redshirt her and hold
her out for the remaining part of the
season."
A two-hour plane ride away, the
women distance runners were also
making strides, but in national
competition.
Senior tri-captain Mindy Rowand
was one of three Wolverines to place
in the 3000-meter run. Rowand
placed second with a time of
9:31.06. Amy Bannister finished

third in the 800-meter run in a time
of 2:10.40. First year runner Molly
McClimon managed a second place
finish in the 1500-meter run, and
Kim Haluscsak earned a sixth place
finish in the 5000-meter run.
Selected members of the
women's track team will travel to
Philadelphia next week for the Penn
Relays. The competition, starting
Wednesday and lasting through next
weekend will feature teams from all
over the country.

Relays where she will compete in
the heptathalon.
First year stand-out Ronda
Ricketts, who was recruited as a
long jumper and sprinter, also did
not compete because of a
questionable hamstring. Henry does
not want to risk severe injury by
hurrying the return of the two-time
high school all-american,
"We're unsure of her immediate
future," said Henry. "If she isn't

Returning from the heart, the
Michigan's men track team has
mixed emotions. In Lawrence,
Kansas, the heartland of America,
the Wolverines saw a few stand out
performances, and a few less than
ideal outcomes.
Jeff Barnett was one of the
highlights of the weekend. Barnett
finished first in the the 3000 meter
steeplechase, with a season best time
of 8:54.5. "I'm really happy" said
Barnett. "I've been feeling really
good in workouts. I knew I had it in
me."
Another note-worthy performance
was given by Brad Holwerda in the
high jump. Holwerda jumped 7-feet,
1/4-inch, his best jump this season

and good enough for a 4th place.
In the two mile relay, the
Michigan squad was in a very close
race for third, but were unable to
out-touch two other teams, and
finished fifth.
In another unfortunate field, Brad
Darr almost clear 18 feet in the pole
vault, however his pole broke, and
he again just missed 18 feet on his
third jump, with a new pole.
Although Darr finished fourth, again
he just missed making the NCAA
requirement for the pole vault.
Neal Newman also got the short
end of a stick. Newman was
supposed to be placed in the fast heat
of the 800 meter dash, however the
fast heat ended up being the slow
heat, and Newman was only able to
capture sixth overall.

Lions draft QB Ware;

Hoard goes
NEW YORK (AP) - The year
of the junior started early Sunday as
five underclassmen were taken with
the first seven picks of an NFL draft
dominated by defense.
It was the first draft ever open
unconditionally to underclassmen,
and teams jumped on them despite
reservations about their lack of
experience.
Michigan's running back Leroy
Hoard was taken in the second round
by the Cleveland Browns. "That's
what I thought, either them or the
Giants," Hoardtsaid, viahtelephone,
from Southfield, MI. I'm happy
now, now I just have to show them
that I'm capable of performing. I
was really expecting to go in the
fourth round, I got worried after only
one running back was taken in the
first fifteen picks. I'm ready to show
them that they made the right
choice."
Altogether, eight were chosen
with the 25 picks of the first round,
starting with Illinois quarterback Jeff
George as the No. 1 pick by the
Indianapolis Colts and including
Alabama linebacker Keith McCants
by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,
Southern Cal linebacker Junior Seau
by the San Diego Chargers,
defensive back Mark Carrier by the
Chicago Bears and Houston Heisman
Trophy winner Andre Ware by the
Detroit Lions.
The Lions put the finishing
touches an all-Heisman trophy
backfield with the selection of Ware.
Lining up with Ware will be
running back Barry Sanders, who a
year ago also bypassed his final
college season after winning the
Heisman at Oklahoma State.

in second
The Lions, who ranked 26th in
the NFL in passing last season
despite their pass-oriented run and
shoot offense, already had threei
quarterbacks: Rodney Peete, Bob
Gagliano and Chuck Long.
But when Ware decided to make
himself eligible for the draft, the
Lions found him too attractive to
resistvdespite their needs for
defensive help.
"I had the opportunity to go to
Houston and work Andre out
personally last week and was very
impressed, sort of the same way I
felt last year after working out Barry
Sanders," Lions coach Wayne Fontes
said. "I was worried to death all week
that somebody else would take him.
I had a lot of sleepless nights."
Ware was the seventh player
picked overall and was the second
quarterback taken in the draft behind
Jeff George, who went to the Colts.
The knock against Ware was that
much of his passing yardage resulted
from long runs after catches - plus
the fact that 517 yards and six of his
touchdowns last season came against
Southern Methodist University,
which was coming off an NCAA
death penalty.
"To win the Heisman Trophy, he
had to do something," Fontes said.
"I saw film of every game last.
season. He made some great throws
and he made some erratic throws."
"But he showed one thing during
all those, and that was poise."
Fontes said he expects Ware to
struggle a bit early in his rookie
season, despite the fact that he ran
basically the same offense in
college.
