The Wolverines' streak comes on
the heels of a tough weekend in the
windy city. Against Northwestern, the
squad only managed a split, its first two
Big Ten losses of the season. Michigan
entered this busy week 19th in the na-
ion and third within the region. A
strong performance this weekend agaist
the Hoosiers may allow the Wolverines
to regain the all important first place
regional ranking that decides seeds in
the NCAA tournament.

Relays abound for Michigan men's sprinters

by Tonya Broad
Daily Sports Writer
While students are busy worrying
about tests and packing up their apart-
ments or dorm rooms, some don't see
an endin sightforatleastanothermonth.
Among those is the men's track and
field team, which returns to action to-
day at the University of Kansas in
Lawrence.
The general consensus is that there
will be no adverse affects on the times
due to the week off from competing.
Michigan track coach Jack Harvey
knows it will help in the long run. The
remaining meets will be very competi-
tive inpreparationfor the Big Ten cham-
pionship, which is the culmination of

the season. The break will allow the
team to gain its second wind and con-
tinue its efforts. Harvey looks forward
to honing the teams competition skills.
'We're looking forward to get back
on track," Harvey said. "We're hungry
and ready to go."
Michigan pole vaulter Toby VanPelt
also appreciates the momentary break
from competition.
"(Thebreak)willhelp," VanPeltsaid.
"It gives guys a chance to rest. At this
point in the year everyone is training
hard. This break gives them a chance to
relax and get their studies taken care
of."
Coach Harvey said he believes, de-
spite the uncertain weather conditions,

thatthe Kansas Relays shouldbe agood
quality meet. However, it is only a
preparatory meet for the highly com-
petitive Penn Relays, which willbeheld
next week. Harvey said he wants to
polish his relay teams andprepare other
individualrunners for the tougher meets
ahead.
Individuals such as Matt Smith and
Matt Schroeder will run in the 3,000-
meter steeplechase. Trinity Townsend
and Todd Bumham will contribute in
the 400-meter race.
Harvey will have to depend on nu-
merous freshman to pull through in the
face of adversity in both individual and
relay races.
Along with Dan Reddan and Brian

Smith, freshmanhigh jumperJonRoyce
said he is confident and up for the
challenge.
"Having last weekend off should
help," Royce said. "My legs aren't as
tired and I've been jumping well in
practice.
"My steps are on; I had to shorten
my approach from 11 to seven steps so
I'm more consistent," he said.
VanPelt said he has immense confi-
dence in his younger cohorts.
"'The team has a lot of really good
freshmen to build on," VanPelt said.
"They run against mature juniors and
seniors and are right in there. Wait for
them to mature and they'll be there."
VanPelt will be needed to gain valu-

able points. Jumping more consistently,
VanPelt said he feels confident going
into the meet.
"I'm jumping better and better in
practice," VanPelt said. "I'm looking to
take astepahead, jumping mid- tohigh-
17 (feet)."
The team has more to worry about
then Kansas Relays this weekend. Penn
Relays - one of the toughest meets of
the year - is next week and Big Tens
are soon to follow. The team's focus is
on improving every week and doing
well at the conference championship.
You may wonder what they think about
exam week?
"I don'tget down on exams," Royce
said.

The Tigers trailed 2-1 and were fac-
ing Dennis Eckersley (0-1) to open the
bottom of the ninth.
Rob Deer singled to start the Detroit
rally and Gary Thurman ran for him.
Thurman stole second and moved to
third on Mickey Tettleton's ground out

Scott Livingstone singled Thurman

2-3 innings for the win.
The Athletics took a 1-0 lead in the

up on Ruben Sierra's single and scored
on a single by M4ark Mctiwire.
Sierra put a 1-1 pitch from John
Doherty into the upper deck in right for
his firsthomer, leading off the Oakland
sixth.
Other major leaguers had this to say
about Anderson's feat:
"I'd have to manage 10 more
years to match him, when you think
about it. I've said it for years and years,
he's the best." -- Oaldand manager
Tony LaRussa.
"I think being around for 1,000
wins is a great accomplishment, much
