The Michigan women's cross
country team gunned down the rest of
the field at the Mountain Classic West
in Missoula, Mont. Third-ranked
Michigan captured its third straight
invitational by scoring 53 points.
Senior Molly McClimon contin-
ued her undefeated season by being
the first collegiate (second overall)
runner to complete the 6-kilometer
"It was a good race," McClimon
said. "It's always hard to tell who is
going to be in good shape. I gauged
myselfoff of people I had raced against
last track season. Winning as a team
was the most important accomplish-
ment for the weekend."
Szabo was the fifth college runner
to finish, followed by juniors Karen
Harvey and Courtney Babcock, who
were tenth and 11th respectively. Se-
nior Jessica Kluge was Michigan's
fifth runner and 26th overall.

The Michigan men's cross country
team stumbled off the trail on its expe-
dition out west. The Wolverines fin-
ished third behind Virginia Tech and
BYU at the Mountain Classic West in
Individually, freshman Kevin
Sullivan, and sophomores Scott
MacDonald, and Theo Molla finished
fifth, 12th and 22nd, respectively.
"My legs didn't feel great,"
Sullivan said. "I competed to the abil-
ity that I'm at right now."
The Wolverines had difficulties
narrowing the margin between the
third and fifth runners. Matt Schroeder
and Ian Forsyth were 46th and 49th,
"I didn't think that I had a very
good race at all," Schroeder said. "We
need to close the gap between four
and five. That is why we got beat by
BYU and Virginia Tech."

This weekend in Champaign, the
Michigan women's soccer team
wasn't just determined, it was relent-
less. The Wolverines (11-1 overall)
didn't even allow a goal, delivering
four consecutive shutouts over Illi-
nois (4-0), Western Michigan (4-0),
Purdue (3-0) and Indiana (8-0).
"Coming out with four victories is
hard enough," Michigan coach Linda
Hamilton said. "It is amazing to think
we scored 19 goals and had none
against us.They shouldbe really proud
of themselves. This is kind of a turn-
ing point in the season."
With a nine-game winning streak,
it appears that the Wolverines are
coasting along. But according to cap-
tain Carrie Taylor, the soccer team
still hasn't reached its peak.
"We're good, but we are not a great
team yet," Taylor said.

At the rain-shortened Iowa Invita-
tional this weekend, the Michigan
women's golf team shot a team score
of 333 to finish eighth in the 10-team
tourney, won by Illinois with 300.
Rain cancelled Saturday's play,

Michigan finished only one stroke
out of sixth.
"I'm not disappointed with our
effort, considering the difficult cir-
cumstances due to the rain," Michi-
gan coach Kathy Teichert said. "But
I'm frustrated with our inconsistency."
Sophomore Shannon McDonald
was Michigan's highest finisher in
11th place with a score of 79. Other
top Michigan finishers included Jenny
Zimmerman who finished 31st, Tegan
McCorkel finished 39th, and her sis-
ter Tiffany was the 46th finisher.

"We're a young team and I'm a
new coach," Teichert said. "They're
all really good golfers, better than
what they're showing. I just need to
change their way of thinking and get
them to believe in themselves."

For a defense that had struggled
the week before, playing a football
team on the losing end of two con-
secutive blowouts sounded like the
For Michigan, Houston was that

back Jimmy Klingler was out with an

last Saturday against the Wolverines,

After reviewing the film of his
team's 42-21 victory, coach Gary
Moeller was in no better position to
answer the critics. As of yesterday's
press luncheon, he had found no se-
cret concoction to shake the defense
from its current malaise.
"Defensively, we've got to rely on
our upperclassmen to make plays for
the guys who aren't there," he said.
Preseason Butkus Award candi-
dates Steve Morrison and Matt Dyson
have suffered serious setbacks.
Morrison watched the Houston game
from the sidelines after reinjuring his
foot last Wednesday.
Dyson, who has struggled through
injuries most of the season, will not
have that problem Saturday. He will
be joining Morrison as an onlooker.
Defensive lineman Ninef
Aghakhan suffered a groin pull against
Houston, making him questionable
for this week's game against Iowa.
