Michigan athletes take honors [£

from staff reports
Two University of Michigan stu-
dent-athletes, cross country/track ju-
nior Amy Buchholz (Fort Wayne,
IN/Homestead HS) and field hockey
junior Katherine "Katie" Thomas
(Toledo, OH/Ottawa Hills HS), have
been selected as co-recipients of the
1992 Michigan M-Women Athletic
Achievement Award. The award
was presented at the women's athlet-
ics Champions Reception April 5.
Presented by the Michigan M-
Women Association, the annual
award recognizes the Wolverine fe-
male student-athlete(s) achieving in-
dividual athletic successes which
reflect positively on her team and
the university. Nominations for the
award came from each of the 10

Michigan women's athletics coach-
ing staffs, while the award recipients
were selected by the M-Women
Buchholz is a distance runner
who competes for both the Michigan
cross-country and track teams. She
finished 24th in the 1991 NCAA
National Cross Country Champion-
ships to become Michigan's sixth
cross country All-American and lead
the Wolverines to a 14th-place
showing at nationals. On the track,
Buchholz ran to a sixth-place 5000-
meters finish at the 1992 Big Ten
Indoor Track Championships. The
junior kinesiology major earned
Academic All-Big Ten Conference
honors in both cross country and

track during the 1991-92 year.
Thomas, a forward on the
Wolverine field hockey team, led
Michigan scoring in 1991, notching
7 goals and adding 7 assists for 21
season points. Thomas tied for
fourth in final Midwest Collegiate
Field Hockey Conference scoring
statistics (17 points), helping
Michigan to a fourth-place league
finish (9-9/4-6 MCFHC). A U-M tri-
captain, she was named to the All-
MCFHC Second Team. Thomas, a
junior political science major, is a
member of the 1991 MCFHC All-
Academic and the 1992 Big Ten
Conference Academic At-Large
The Big Ten Conference an-

in March.
Winkler won the Big Ten floor

tion. The frosh also had a 9.90 in the
floor exercise which was tied as the
conference season's best with
Michigan State's Paul Dackermann.
Winkler led Michigan with a team-
high of 9.55 on the parallel bars and
56.95 in the all-around. He will be
participating in the NCAA Eastern

the Big Ten all-around record of
39.00 points. She was named the Big

Pistons bury
Aguirre came off a scoreless game
to finish with 22 points Wednesday
night, leading the Detroit Pistons to
an 89-71 victory over Philadelphia,
further dimming the 76ers' playoff
Aguirre, who didn't score in the
Pistons' victory over New York
Tuesday night, hit nine of 14 shots,
including two 3-pointers. He scored
15 points in the second period, when
the Pistons outscored the 76ers 31-
10 for a 47-32 halftime lead.
Hersey Hawkins scored 25 points
and Charles Barkley 22 for
Philadelphia, which lost its eighth
game in 11 starts and fell three
games behind New Jersey and
Atlanta for an Eastern Conference
playoff spot.

76ers, 89-71
Joe Dumars scored 16 points and
Dennis Rodman had 13 points and
16 rebounds for Detroit, which won
its third straight game and improved
its road record to 22-17.
The 76ers led 22-16 after one
quarter before Aguirre and Bill
Laimbeer led the Pistons' second-
quarter surge. Laimbeer had eight
points and seven rebounds in the
second period.
Detroit led 50-38 with 8:34 left
in the third period before a 13-5 run
closed Philadelphia to 55-51. But the
Pistons responded with an 11-2 burst
to lead 66-53 at the end of three pe-
A 10-4 run, including six points
by Dumars, extended the Pistons'
lead to 76-59. A jumper by Dumars
with 4:55 left made it 80-61.

Just as the weather warms up in
Ann Arbor, the women's track teams
will pack up and head to the East
Coast. However, the trip should be
strictly business.
The Wolverines head out to
Charlottesville, Va., on Friday, to
face the Virginia Cavaliers, along
with squads from Kent and Rutgers,
in a quadrangle track meetthis
weekend. Although the Wolverines
don't know too much about their ri-
vals, assistant coach Mike McGuire
expects a strong showing from each
"Virginia has a tremendous his-
tory and a strong tradition in wom-
en's track," McGuire said. "We
don't face too many teams from
Kent's region, so we don't know
much about their team, but the meet
should be strong across the board
considering teams from different ar-

eas of the country are represented."
Outstanding performers from last
weekend's meet in Texas included
sophomore Richelle Webb and frosh
Carrie Stewart. Stewart, a Wolverine
basketball player in the winter,
placed fifth in the javelin throw and
was the only individual to place
among the top six in any event at the
Texas relays. Both are expected to
contribute largely this weekend.
"Carrie had a very good meet,
and she is a scorer who we didn't
have in the winter season," McGuire
said. "But we were especially
pleased to see Richelle open up in
the 100-meter under 12 seconds
A few noteworthy stories will
also unfold during the meet this
weekend. Wolverine junior Molly
McClimon will make her first return
to the track since injuring her knee
15 months ago. McClimon returns as

Michigan's fastest 1500-meter run-
ner, and while she has regained her
conditioning, this weekend will de-
termine exactly how much progress
she has made.
"Molly has undergone several
knee operations, and has been train-
ing well with us," McGuire said.
"But, there is a big difference be-
tween training and racing shape. She
will run the 3000 this weekend, just
for some competition experience."
Senior middle distance runner
Carrie Yates has perhaps more of an
interest in Virginia's team than other
Wolverines, considering her twin
sister runs the hurdles for the
Cavaliers. But Yates, a member of
Michigan's outstanding two-mile re-
lay, and her teammates should expe-
rience considerable competition
from Virginia's two-mile relay, as
both qualified for the winter national
