Indoor track squads off to quality
starts in first meets of the season
By TOM SEELEY
DAILY SPORTS WRITER
The future is looking good. One of the best recruiting
classes the Michigan track program has had in years made
its presence known at Saturday's intrasquad meet.
The meet, which is the traditional opener of the indoor
season, saw freshmen place in one of the top two spots in
seven of the day's 10 events.
Two freshmen who really shined were Kevin Sullivan,
who won the 800 meters and
Neil Gardner, who took first in
both the 55-meter sprint and the 55-meter hurdles.
Sullivan, coming off of a phenomenal cross country
season in which he led the team to a Big Ten champion-
ship, registered a 1:50.0 in the 800 meters. He followed up
that performance by running a personal best in the mile
relay later in the afternoon.
"I was really pleased with my performance," Sullivan
said. "My time in the 800 was the fastest I've ever opened
Gardner won the sprint with a time of 6.4 seconds and
came back to capture the hurdles with a time of 7.5 seconds.
Michigan coach Jack Harvey knows it is only the
beginning of the season but was impressed with the perfor-
mance of his young squad.
"Some of the guys aren't in top shape yet," Harvey said.
"But by and large we were pretty pleased with the results."

Before this season, the Michigan women's track and
field team vowed to improve upon last season's third-
place finish in the Big Ten Indoor Championships. Their
fine performance Saturday in a home intrasquad meet
indicated they are leading to that goal.
Going into this season with a conference title in cross
WOME country already under their belt,
the distance runners know they
will play a key role throughout the drive for a Big Ten
One runner who showed she hasn't lost a step is Molly
McClimon. McClimon, the defending Big Ten champion
in the 5,000 meters and All-American in cross country,
won the 3,000 meters on Saturday in impressive fashion.
Also running strongly for the Wolverines in the meet was
Courtney Babcock. Babcock, an All-American in cross
country and third-place conference finisher in the 3,000 last
spring, showed she is still one of the prominent runners in the
Big Ten by winning the mile this weekend.
Richelle Webb continued her excellence of last season
by winning the 400 meters in addition to contributing to
the victorious mile relay team. Tearza Johnson led the
field in the 200 meters and also helped win the mile relay.
Laura Jerman won the pentathlon and hurdled very well.

Saturday's confrontation with
USC was not the first time the two
teams were in the same pool. In fact it
was the third. The Trojans came to
Ann Arbor for the U.S. Open in De-
Later that month the two teams,
along with California, held winter
training at the U.S. Olympic train-
ing center pool in Colorado Springs,
Urbanchek said the presence of
the Trojans and Golden Bears con-
tributed to a successful training trip.
"We had two other college teams
there, which made the training a
little more productive," Urbanchek
said. "Sometimes we combined the
workouts, which made it a little more
competitive. So we got better re-
The longest unbeaten streak
in CCHA history is held by
Michigan State, which went 27
games without losing in 1989-
90. The Spartans also hold
the record for most
consecutive games without a
loss or a tie. Michigan State
was perfect for 18 straight
games from 1984-85.
Michigan has currently won 15
straight conference games and
has gone 23 straight CCHA
games without a loss, dating
back to last season.
