'M' women runners
dominate EMU meet

WHO: Derrick Alexander
TEAM: Football
YEAR: Senior
WHY: In Saturday's Homecoming game against Minnesota, Alexander set a Michigan record
with four touchdown receptions. He scored on scoring strikes from Elvis Grbac covering 52,
13, 3 and 32 yards. For the day, Alexander had seven receptions covering 130 yards. The
Wolverines beat Minnesota, 63-13, to win its 17th consecutive Big Ten contest. The
Wolverines also retained the Little Brown Jug for another year.
BACKGROUND: Alexander has scored 11 touchdowns so far this season. He was Michigan's
second-leading receiver in 1990 with 31 receptions for 450 yards. Alexander also averaged
27.8 yards on kickoff returns. Last season, Alexander tore his anterior cruciate ligament in
the season opener at Boston College and missed the remainder of the season..He was named
by The Sporting News as one of the top freshman receivers in the country in 1989. In his
senior year of high school at Benedictine, Alexander had 3,711 total yards on his way to
being named a consensus all-state selection.

With several top runners side-
lined, a group of new Michigan
faces blazed the trails at the Eastern
Michigan Cross Country Invitational
Friday evening.
Led by redshirt frosh Mayrie
Richards, the Wolverines placed
four runners in the top ten positions
while dominating the field in an un-
scored contest.
Richards, who crossed the line in
18 minutes, 32 seconds, captured
second place overall, and was well-
supported by a host of other
Rookie Amy Parker (18:51) fin-
ished in fourth place, while Jessica
Kluge, weighted down by a plaster
cast on her arm, and Kristi Wink fin-

ished sixth and ninth, respectively.
Had the meet been scored, the
Wolverines clearly would have


emerged victorious.
"I thought all of the runners
turned in solid performances,"
Michigan coach Mike McGuire said.
"Mayrie ran what was her best race
of the year, and Amy Parker also had
a very good race."
The Wolverines compete in
Champaign next weekend in the Big
Ten Championships, and have their
roster almost complete.
"Right now we are trying to fig-
ure out just who will fill out our
roster for next weekend," McGuire
said. "We have eight positions filled
now, so we will take one more run-
ner and two alternates who will need
to stay ready to race.


Harriers gear up for Big Tens

by Wendy Law
The Michigan men's cross coun-
try team found its final three runners
for the Big Ten Championships on
Friday. Mostly because they found
the right way to the finish line.
Juniors Jay Schemanske, Shawn
MacKay, and Robert Lee qualified
for the 7th, 8th, and 9th positions
on the travel team based on their per-
formances in the Eastern Michigan
Classic Invitational.
Schemanske finished fifth overall
with a time of 26:07. MacKay
(26:17) and Lee (26:48) took the 8th
and 14th positions, respectively.
They will join seniors Matt
Smith and Chris Childs, sopho-
mores Ian Forsyth and Jim Fin-
layson, and freshmen Theo Molla
and Scott MacDonald, the top six
runners for the team, who qualified
for the conference meet at the
Michigan Invitational Oct. 18.
The Wolverines' top six runners
were held out of Friday's meet to
give them a rest before the Big Tens.
One of those runners, Smith,
didn't feel the EMU Classic was a
fair test. Apparently, Smith said, an
Eastern Michigan runner took a

wrong turn and took several runners
with him.
"It was a screwed-up race," Smith
said. "About a mile into the race,
half our guys went the right way and
half our guys went the wrong way.
It threw a lot of people off. The
guys that went the wrong way had to

went the wrong way, how do you de-
termine what happens at the end?"
But those are the breaks, and a
little suffering builds character.
"It's tough," Smith said. "That's
the nature of being on the hump,
though, when you're a seventh,
eighth, or ninth guy. A lot of us
have gone through it. It's a lot of

'if you're trying to make the team and half the
guys went the right way and half went the
wrong way, how do you determine what
happens at the end?' - Matt Smith

run a half-mile loop at the end
(before they) merged back in."
The extra distance took its toll.
"That really throws you off psy-
chologically, in the middle of the
race, to not know if what you're do-
ing is going to count because you
don't know how they're going to
score something like that," Smith
"You know that you're going to
score," Smith added, "but if you're
trying to make the team and half the
guys went the right way and half

pressure each race. If you can get
through that pressure - that's what
we need in the big races."
Smith and the rest of the Wolver-
ines now have to prepare for the Big
"I'm excited about the Big Tens,"
MacDonald said. "I'm looking for-
ward to it. I won't be nervous about
it until the day of the race. Right
now, though, I'm just anxious."
The Wolverines will compete at
the Big Ten Conference Champi-
onship this Saturday at Champaign.
