The Michigan men's cross coun-
try team ran away with its meet
Friday afternoon, finishing first in
the four-team competition in East
Lansing. The Wolverines placed five
runners in the top ten en route to de-
feating Macomb Community Col-
lege, Anderson University, and
highly-touted Michigan State.
"It was a really strong win for
us," team co-captain senior Tony
Carna said. "Everybody ran really
well. For most of the race, the ma-
jority of the team hung together in
the front of the pack."
The Wolverines, ranked 16th in
the nation, sent 12 runners to East
Lansing, as opposed to the usual
nine. Team morale was cited as the
determining factor in holding such a
large group together throughout the
duration of the race.
"Team spirit was the key," first-
year runner Jim Finlayson noted.
"We stuck together and helped each
other out. As we began to separate,
we tried to keep in pairs. When one
person started to fall off, his
'partner' encouraged him and helped
him out."
"Team unity was key in having
so many people place in the top 10,"
Carna added. "I was really surprised

tire season a year ago. While 1990
National Coach of the Year Russ
Rose brings in a program which
never lost an Atlantic-10 match
(49-0 over seven seasons), he is wary
of Big Ten competition.
"Anyone in the Big Ten can beat
anyone else," Rose said. "I'd be
happy to finish that high (pre-season
No. 4)."
Indiana (3-6) has gotten off to a
slow start this season. While the
Hoosiers return senior middle
blocker Colleen Jordan and two
sophomore outside hitters, Jill
Kerkhoff and Marcia Drummond,
coach Tom Shoji feels that the lack
of a "go to" player can work both
ways for the Hoosiers.
"We are difficult to defense be-
cause we have no real weak hitters,"
Shoji said. "The downside is that if
we're not ready to play as a team its
very difficult. We have no player we
can consistently go to, to put the
ball away."
Shoji is not the only coach con-

at how many people stayed up front.
Our ninth man this year was as fast
as our fourth last year. Everybody
ran a really strong race."
The possibility of an upset over
archrival Michigan State, favored to
win the Big Ten in the preseason
coaches meeting, provided addi-
tional motivation for the
Wolverines.

"We were really excited at the
prospect of knocking them (MSU)
off," Finlayson noted. "They were
the team that was supposed to beat
us. The team is really happy and our
morale is great."
The Wolverines were led by
Shawn McKay, who placed third
overall. McKay was followed by
junior co-captain Dan Oden (fourth),

Harriers triumph in tourney

by Sharon Lundy
The Michigan women's cross
country team came through with a
decisive victory at the Michigan
State Invitational meet Friday. The
top seven Wolverine runners fin-
ished in third through ninth place as
the team topped second-place Mich-
igan State, finishing with 28 points
to the Spartans' 58.
Helping lead the way for Michi-
gan were two promising young run-
ners. Rookie Karen Harvey ran a per-
sonal best, leading the Wolverines
with a third-place finish of 17:51.
Sophomore Jessica Kluge followed
Harvey across the finish line with
another personal best of 17:55.
Kelly Chard took fifth with her

18:06 finish. Chris Szabo finished
right behind Chard in 18:07, earning
a sixth-place finish. Rachel Mann
finished seventh with a time of
18:13.
Carrie Yates also ran a personal
record with her eighth-place finish
of 18:27. Captain Megan Nortz fin-
ished ninth with a time of 18:28.
"It just goes to show we are the
best team in the state," Nortz said.
The individual meet winner was
Michigan State's Misti Allison,
who finished in 17:31. Western
Michigan's Stacy Kilburn took sec-
ond-place honors and -led the Bron-
cos to their third-place score of 75.
Central Michigan finished fourth

overall with 86 points, while Ma-
comb Community ended its day
with 137 points.
Coach Sue Foster was pleased
with her team's performance.
"Everyone (all twelve runners) ran
really well," she said. "They raced
as well as they have been practicing.
Everyone ran competitively. It's'
always nice to see blue Michigan"
shirts coming across the line one,
right after another."

"It wasn't a blowout, but it was

Lions defeat
Colts, 33-24
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -
Barry Sanders rushed for 179 yards
and two touchdowns, and Detroit
held Indianapolis to a franchise-low
four yards rushing yesterday as the
Lions came back from a ten-point
deficit and beat the winless Colts
33-24.
Eric Dickerson scored the first
two Colts' touchdowns but was
held to a career-low 17 yards on 13
carries. Dickerson is now fourth all-
time on the NFL rushing list with
12,121 yards.

cerned with not having a "go to"
player. Purdue assistant coach Mary
Ann Spitzer feels that might be her
team's biggest weakness. The Boil-
ermakers (2-5) lost four senior to
graduation and have no players who
started the entire season last year.
Purdue was picked to finish sixth in
the league but Spitzer said the
team's goal is to crack the top three.
Northwestern and Minnesota,
both with 2-6 records, have already
gone through periods of inconsis-
tency. Each team hopes to improve
on last season's performance and
finish in the middle of the pack.
Ranked No.9 in the pre-season
poll, Iowa (2-6) will face some
tough times this season. The
Hawkeyes lost all six starters and
their head coach from a team that
made its first post-season appear-
ance in 1990. Moreover, Linda
Schoenstedt was not named the new
coach until a few days before prac-
tices began. She can only look to re-
build this year.
Another rebuilding team is
Michigan State (1-6). The loss of
three key veterans from last sea-
son's eighth place team does not
bode well for the Spartans, who are
picked to finish last this year.

game two before it began its come-
back. Horrigan and junior setter
Tarnisha Thompson took control,
blocking and spiking the Wolver-
ines back into the match, taking the
momentum in the process. The
Wolverines rallied back and took
game two on a Horrigan kill, for
side out, and an ace for the game.
The domination by Horrigan and
Thompson continued into games
three and four. Thompson ended the
match with 47 assists. Her lively
play excited the crowd and fired up
her teammates. At points in both
games, when the Wolverines looked
to be faltering, Thompson came
through with key plays to stop the
Huskies from making the match any
closer. She was named a member of
the all-tournament team.
Along with the play of the vet-

erans, three first-year players shined
this weekend. Robyn Read had three
critical kills in game four against
the Huskies and proved to be a dan-
gerous substitute. Setter Julie
Scherer played most of the match'
against Georgia State and responded-,
with 31 assists. Middle blocker
Aimee Smith played in nine of tho-
10 games this weekend and also
earned all-tournament honors.
Against the Huskies, Smith had 20
digs and a .318 hitting efficiency. u
"(Aimee) has found her little
niche in our program," Bradleys
Doppes said.
"We have some really good re-
cruits who are very aggressive,"
Horrigan added.
Michigan now enters the Big Ten
season with confidence. Only three-,
other teams have better than .500
records. Considering that last year
at this point Michigan was 1-9, the
Wolverines have reason to be opti-
mistic.
