Harriers hope to leave Indy with NCAA bid
by Bruce Inosencio
Daily Sports Writer
As another chilly November weekend draws
near, the Michigan men's cross country team
hopes to heat up in Bloomington. Coach Ron
Warhurst's squad looks to place high in this
weekend's NCAA District IV meet. The
Wolverines need .a strong race from the whole
team in order to go to the national meet in Tus-
Michigan's top three harriers for Saturday's
meet at Indiana University are senior tri-cap-
tains Dan Oden, Tony Carna, and Matt Smith.
Rounding out the top five for the Wolverines
are sophomore Shawn MacKay and rookie Jim
While the team has been running conserva-
tively throughout the season, Warhurst seems to
think that his squad will run with focus this
"We're going to go out hard and go after it,"
Warhurst said, "but our main objective is to
place in the top three this weekend so we get to
nationals. It would be nice to win Saturday, but
it's more important just to make it out of the
district and into the nationals."
Getting to nationals won't be easy for
Michigan because NCAA District IV is one of
the nation's strongest in terms of cross country
talent. Boasting four of the nation's top-twenty
teams, the district meet will feature Wisconsin
(5), Michigan (7), Notre Dame (9), and Michi-
gan State (17).
"Wisconsin is a much better team than we
thought originally," Warhurst said. "But I
know that we can give them a good run for it."
With more than 40 schools on hand this
weekend, the meet is sure to be competitive.
"We're looking for a very competitive race,
but I think we'll do well because the course is
10,000 meters and that should help us a little,"
Warhurst said. Michigan's squad is more experi-
enced with the longer distances, and the transi-
tion from 8,000 to 10,000 meters will be to the
All Big Ten schools - except Penn State

The Michigan women's cross
country team races off to Bloom-
ington this Saturday to compete in
the NCAA District IV Champi-
onships. The Wolverines hope t
place in one of the top three spots
which will enable them to advance
to the NCAA National Champi-
onship next week. Attending na-
tionals has been the team's main
goal all year.
Approximately 20 teams from
the Big Ten and the Mid-American
Conference are competing at Satur-
day's meet. Michigan has fared wel
against other teams in the state, de-
feating Central, Eastern, Western,
and Michigan State earlier in the
season. Michigan's main competi-
tion at the meet will be Big Ten
The Wolverines have psyched
themselves up for some tough com-
petition during their two week
break from meets. Last week, the
team spent its practices working ore
strength exercises. This week the
runners ran shorter and faster races
in practice to allow them time to
rest before the meet Saturday. Over-
all, the team has been fairly healthy
with the exception of sophomore
"Kluge has been having some
problems with her hip," coach Sue
Foster said. "She seems to be recov-
ering well, but we're unsure if sh*
will be racing on Saturday."
Michigan has already competed
against nearly every school partici-
pating at districts. Foster believes
that this factor has allowed the
Wolverines to learn the strengths
and weaknesses of the teams. It is
important for runners to know
when to pick up the pace and when
to stay with the pack.
Michigan will most likely b,
looking for junior Amy Buchholz,
sophomore Chris Szabo, and rookies
Kelly Chard and Karen Harvey to
dominate the race.
"Buchholz is a leader and has
been looking great this season,"
Foster said. "Szabo always works
hard in practice. She sets a great ex-
ample for the rest of the team."
Both Chard and Harvey have bee*
welcome additions to the team.
They have placed in the top ten at
nearly every meet this season.
"Harvey is really dedicated and
always strives to be the best she can
be," Foster said. "Kelly is a really
great competitor. Put her in the
competitive arena and watch out!"
Other Michigan runners hoping
to place high are seniors Megan
Nortz and Carrie Yates.0
Buchholz sums up the team's at-
titude: "We're going to nationals.
