Oregon edges out Blue harriers

by Jim Foss
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan women's cross
country team ran to a second place
finish in the Minnesota Invitational
at St. Paul this Saturday. Oregon
captured the meet with 33 points,
while the Wolverines tallied 67.
First-year runner Jennifer Arm-
strong finished fifth overall for the
Wolverines, posting a time of 17
minutes, 50 seconds. Sophomore
Molly McClimon took ninth place,
with a time of 17:58.
"Molly set a personal record for a
cross country meet, and it was
Jennifer's fastest time of the year,"
coach Sue Foster said.
The Wolverines managed to
separate themselves into two distinc-
tive packs, with the top three run-
ners staying together, and places four
through eight competing likewise.
Running with the first pack,
sophomore Amy Buchholz finished
third on the Wolverine roster,
twelfth overall, with a time of
Though pleased with the efforts
of the top three, it was the aggres-
sive style of the second pack which
drew praise from Foster.
"They went out fast, maybe a lit-

tle too fast, but they really went
after it," Foster said. "Now, all we
have to do is get them up a little
Senior Amy Bannister, who took
18th place with an 18:24, paced the
second pack. Chris Tyler captured
23rd place, Kim Haluscsak took
27th, Megan Nortz placed 28th, and
Chris Szabo finished 33rd.

The course at the Minnesota Invi-
tational is the same one which will
be run at the Big Ten Champi-
onships. The weekend meet provided
experience for the Wolverines that
can only help the team later in the
season, according to Foster.
"The course was deceiving and a
lot tougher than we thought. This
should help us," Foster said.

Iowa State placed third with 84
points. Weaver, host team Mio
nesota, and Colorado garnered places
four, five, and six, respectively, in a
field of eleven.
Next weekend, the Wolverines
travel to Michigan State for the
Michigan Intercollegiates.

Lions win 34-27: Gagliano
thrown into QB controversy

It's hard to believe that supposedly
untalented Bob Gagliano is a
football hero. It's even harder to
believe that the supposedly talent-
rich Minnesota Vikings are a 1-4
football team.
Believe it. Believe it all.
"I always thought Gagliano was
the guy they should be going with,"
Vikings coach Jerry Burns said
Sunday after Gagliano passed for
299 yards and three touchdowns as
the Detroit Lions stunned Minnesota
34-27. "He's the guy that put it all
together at the end of last year. He
can throw the ball very well. He took
some pretty good hits in there and,
kept coming back."
Even though Gagliano quarter-
backed the Lions to victories in their,
final five games of 1989, Coach
Wayne Fontes considers him the
team's third-best all-round QB

behind second-year man Rodney
Peete and rookie Andre Ware. The
only reason Gagliano started Sunday
was that Peete was injured last week
and Ware isn't quite ready to play.
"Rodney has better skills,"
Fontes said. "The guy with the best
touch (Ware) is waiting his turn on
the bench. (Gagliano) made the
plays when he had to."
Gagliano was a 12th-round draft
choice in 1981 who was released
eight times by five different NFL
teams. He also bounced around the
USFL for two years before that
league folded.
He doesn't seem anxious to
create a quarterback controversy in
"I'm actually getting sick of the
whole thing. I know Rodney is, too,"
said Gagliano, who completed 16 of
31 passes. "They are not my de-
cisions. They are Wayne's decisions

and I'm not going to worry about it."
The Vikings have been infamous
for QB controversies over the y
but they have plenty more to woW
about now.
Minnesota's last 1-4 start was in
1967, Bud Grant's first season as
coach and a year before Burns joined
him as offensive coordinator.
Preseason favorites to win their
second straight division title and
make their fourth straight playoff
appearance, the Vikings have lost
successive home games to tradition
NFC Central also-rans Tampa Bf
and Detroit after 13 straight Metro-
dome wins. The Vikings had lost
home games to those two teams in
the same season and hadn't lost to
Detroit in the eight games since the
1986 opener - Burns' first game as
head coach.
