Women harriers open at Lehigh SOCCER KICKS OFF

By JAESON ROSENFELD
DAILY SPORTS WRITER
If you had to pick a song to describe
last season for the Michigan women's
cross country team, you might pick
"Glory Days."
With a Big Ten championship and
eighth-place NCAA finish, the harriers
made quite a name for rookie coach
Mike McGuire. But success brings
greed to most and McGuire has proven
no different - with five returning
letterwinners, he's set even loftier goals
for this season. So instead of reminisc-
ing about days of splendor, the Wolver-
inesplan todo what they do best-run
all over their Big Ten foes.
"We are not going into this season

with a defending Big Ten champions'
mindset," McGuire said. "We're going
into 1993 out to win a Big Ten title."
Michigan's hopes of a repeat cham-
pionship will depend heavily on the
leadership of a pair of returning All-
Americans, MollyMcClimon and Karen
Harvey. The duo placed 17th and 21stat
NCAAs, respectively. Coupled with
additional returners senior Chris Szabo
and sophomore Courtney Babcock -
both top-seven placers in last year's Big
Ten championship - it's not hard to
figure outwhy the Wolverines garnered
a preseason No. 4national ranking.
"With Karen, Chris, Courtney and I
it's hard to tell who's going to be num-

ber one and who's going to be number
four," McClimon said. "It's really im-
portant for us to lead by example, "
McClimon and her teammates face
their first of many tune-ups preceding
the Big Ten season this weekend at the
Lehigh Invitational. The Wolverines will
have to make due without the services
of All-Big Ten junior Kelly Chard in
Bethlehem, Pa., who has been ham-
pered by a foot injury since May. The
duration of Chard's absence is indefi-
nite at this point, as she'll wait a few
weeks to decide if her foot is fit for
competition.
"We'll really miss her if she can't
run this season," McClimon said.

seasons.
Armster is but one of several new
faces on this year's squad beginning
with Michigan's new coach, Linda
Hamilton. A four-time All-America at
North Carolina, Hamilton has spent six
seasons on the U.S. national team and
has been a member of the women's
World Cup team which won the title in
1990. While Hamilton does not have
the job beyond this season, Taylor feels
her expertise and experience will help.
"She's basically done it all in the
world of soccer," Taylor said. "I have a
poster of her on my wall and now it's
like 'Heh, that's my coach."'
Hamilton will have to incorporate
the talents of nine new players in 1993.
Taylor says that the newcomers have
been well received.
"It's a good mix," Taylor said.
And as for this weekend's opponent,
the Redskins, Taylor is confident that
Michigan can continue to win.

Men's X-Country shoots for top

By TOM BAUSANO
DAILY SPORTS WRITER
* After finishing second in the Big
Ten Championships three years in a
row, the men's cross country team is not
going to be satisfied with anything less
than a conference title this year.
The team will begin its quest for the
title when it competes at the Lehigh
Invitational tomorrow.
"We had a really strong workout on
the track on Monday, so I think we're
ready to go," Schroeder said.
The "College Sports" pre-season
cross country poll ranked Michigan
fourth nationally.
"Rankings make you feel good,"
Michigan coach Ron Warhurst said. "Our
numberone goalisto win the Big Tens and
be in the top four nationally. In these early
meetswewilltrytoruntogetherandgelas
a team, but once we get to the big ones,

there is no holding back."
The national championships will be
held on the Lehigh course this year. At
8,000 meters, this weekend's course
will be 2,000 meters shorter than the
course used for NCAAs, but the team
and coaches see this asa learning oppor-
tunity.
"It will enable us to familiarize our-
selves with the course andits conditions
for nationals," Sean Sweat said.
Fairleigh Dickinson and Colgate are
among several teams that will compete
tomorrow.
"There won't be a lot of tough team
competition, but there will be some
very good individual competitors,"
Warhurst said.
The lineup for tomorrow includes
Schroeder, Andy Hayes, Chris Eggle,
Scott MacDonald, Theo Molla, Jay
Schemanske, Ian Forsyth, Shawn

Mackay and Kevin Sullivan.
The Wolverines are excited by the
talent of many of the runners. Mackay
seems to be healthy after being plagued
by injuries. He was named Big Ten
Freshman of the Year two years ago.
"Shawn is looking really good,"
Schroeder said."I haven't seen him run-
ning like this since his freshman year."
The team is also pleased with the
addition of freshman Kevin Sullivan
from Brantford, Ont. Sullivan is a five-
time high school cross country cham-
pion. He is only the second Canadian
high schooler to break the four-minute
mile.
