The Michigan women's cross
country team awaits word today on
its qualification as an at-large team
for the NCAA National Champ-
ionship Meet, next week in Tucson,
After finishing third at Satur-
day's Division IV Championship in
Bloomington, with 105 points, the
Wolverines missed being an auto-
matic team qualifier by five points.
Wisconsin placed first, running
all over its competition, with 55
points. The Badgers' closest com-
petitor, second-place Iowa, finished

with a distant 100 points.
"Wisconsin has always been the
team to beat. We knew that going
into to the meet," Michigan senior
Carrie Yates said. "Their top five
runners all placed in the top 30 be-
cause they have the ability to run re-
ally close together."
However, Michigan managed to
place three runners among the top
20. Junior Amy Buchholz placed
eighth (17:43), with rookies Karen
Harvey (17:52) and Kelly Chard
(18:13) placing 11th and 19th, re-
spectively. Other Michigan runners
placing in the top 100 were Chris-
tine Szabo (18:36) in 40th, Yates
(18:37) in 42nd, and Jessica Kluge
(19:05) in 77th.
"I was happy with how we per-
formed," Buchholz said. "Everyone
on the team ran really well; they

second to Wisconsin, the Wolver-
ines were happy about their efforts
at the district meet and their chances
at the national meet.
"We're really ready now to
come out and show something at na-
tionals," Carna said.
"We've got our heads together
now and we're much more relaxed
than we were going into the Big Ten
meet," Warhurst said. "We're going
to look for a top 10 finish at nation-
als and try not to put too much
pressure on ourselves."
NCAA bid
ran their very best.
"I feel pretty confident that we
will be picked to compete at na-
tionals. We beat Iowa really badly
at the Big Ten meet, so that should
influence the judges.The coaching
staff also seems very confident,"
she added.
Senior captain Megan Nortz con-
curred: "We were very happy with
how we ran. Our third-place finish
was great. I think we will get a bid
for nationals. I would be very, very
suprised if we didn't."
If the team is not picked to com-
pete, individual runners can still
reach the NCAA meet. The top two
runners on non-represented teams
from each district also qualify.
"We haven't really begun to
think about preparing for nationals,
but perhaps we'll begin tonight at
practice," Yates said.

falter again
by Ken Davidoff

"The thrill of victory and the
agony of defeat," that stale cliche,
has never been more applicable to
the wide world of Michigan's
women's volleyball team than this
past weekend. After dominating
Northwestern, 15-8, 15-10, 15-1,
Friday night to halt a three-game
losing streak, the Wolverines (8-8
in the Big Ten, 17-10 overall)
dropped a heartbreaker to Wisconsin
the following evening, 15-17, 16-14,
15-9, 5-15, 15-10.
The Saturday defeat was diffi-
cult to stomach for everyone, but
there was some pride in the fact that
Michigan took the Badgers, third in
