The Michigan men's track team
has one more chance to prove itself
in competition before scores are
Substantial competition is ex-
pected tomorrow at the Michigan
Relays. The meet will commence at
the Track and Tennis Building at
Michigan State, Eastern Mich-
igan, Central Michigan, Bowling
Green, Toledo and Toronto will
bring their respective teams to Ann
Arbor. In addition, many non-affil-
iated runners will participate.
Michigan track coach Jack
Harvey is looking for more experi-
ence for the freshmen and an overall
team improvement. Harvey remains
uncertain about the future.
"It's hard to say what I expect,"
Harvey said. "The freshmen ran well
last week (at EMU), but we're
curious to know how good they
The progression of the team as a
whole has been substantial. How-
ever, Harvey downplays the fresh-
men's accomplishments because
there has been little pressure up to
this point. This weekend should be a
perfect opportunity to partially prove
themselves. The high jump and the
3,000-meter run should be hotbeds
Notable high jumpers include
Dennis Lewis (unattached), who
placed second in the NCAAs a
couple years ago, and Toronto's
Not to be out done, the 3,000 me-
ter run should prove to be just as
challenging an event with former
NCAA champion and bronze medal-
ist Brian Demer. Demer was a capt-
ain for last year's Olympic track
team, runs for Nike International,
and will compete at the meet
Harvey feels it will be a quality
meet for the runners and a great
spectator event. Prelims should
finish around 3 p.m., with finals
starting up around 7 p.m.

The Michigan women's- track
team opens its home season with a
pointless meet today at 5 p.m in the
Track and Tennis building.
That's "pointless" as in "a meet
without points," not as in "a mean-
ingless meet." The reason no score
will be tallied is that runners would
then be forced to compete in several
events in one day, which could cause
injuries. In fact, the team figures to
find out a lot about where it stands in
the Big Ten.
This weekend's 12th annual Red
Simmons Invitational will feature
Bowling Green, Toledo, Toronto,
Central Michigan and Cleveland
State, in addition to the Wolverines.
Still, assistant coach Mike McGuire
thinks that Michigan's main compe-
tition is itself.
"It's not going to be a real high-
profile meet," McGuire said. "I think
we're going to be mainly competing
among ourselves. We have some
runners who could be challenged by
other people on our team."
Leading the way for the
Wolverines will be all-Big Ten per-
former Molly McClimon, who will
compete in the mile. Other top run-
ners include Chris Szabo (3,000

meters), and Courtney Babcock
Michigan figures to be strong in
the field events as well. Ronda
Myers will put the shot, and Monika
Black is the Wolverines' best long
"We've made some progress,"
said McGuire. "This meet should
give us a better idea of how good we
are and of what are chances are at
the Big Tens, which will be the first
weekend in March."
The Wolverines will have their hands full tomorrow at the Michigan Relays.

Richardson will not be bringing
his top three swimmers to Purdue.
He has decided to rest the swimmers
that have qualified for NCAAs -
Lara Hooiveld, Alecia Humphrey
and Kathy Deibler.
"I want the number two people to
step up and get the job done,"
Richardson said. "It will be good for
them to perform at that level. It will
help their preparation for Big Tens."
The swimmers will not be resting
especially for this meet. Richardson
hopes to train hard, and not start ta-
pering for Big Tens for another week
But the Boilermakers are not
exactly a pushover.
"Purdue is a good, solid swim-
ming team," Richardson said.
The Boilermakers have several
swimmers with good showings at the
conference and national level. Junior
butterflyer Kim Fritsch finished
fourth at last year's NCAA champi-
onships, which was the highest fin-
ish ever for a Purdue woman swim-
