The Wolverine men's cross coun-
try team entered the Michigan Inter-
collegiate Championships Saturday
hoping to make up for a disappointing
meetin the Rocky Mountain Shootout
atColorado in Boulder a week earlier.
Its performance lived up to its expec-
"We destroyed everybody," jun-
ior All-American Scott MacDonald
The men swept the 8,000-meter
meet held at Western Michigan in
Kalamazoo. The Wolverines scored
22 points, far surpassing second place
finisher, Western College (66) and
third place Hillsdale College (93).
Individual runners performed well,
placing in four of the top five places.
Sophomore All-American Kevin
Sullivan won the meet with a time of
24:10, a meet record. MacDonald
came in second with 24:30, junior
Kris Eggle took third with 25:06 and
sophomore Dave Barnett won fifth
place with a time of 25:20.
Missing from the meet, however,
was team captain Ian Forsyth, who
coach Ron Warhurst kept from run-
ning this week. Forsyth had run three
previous races, and he and Warhurst
felt he needed time to recuperate.
"Everyone seemed to do better
than they did last week (in Colo-
rado)," said junior Theo Molla who
took 1Ith place (25:41) in this, his
first meet of the season.
The times prove Molla right. Al-
though both the Michigan Intercol-
legiate and the Rocky Mountain
Shootout in Colorado were 8,000-
meter meets, the runners' speeds
were much better in Kalamazoo.
Sullivan, MacDonald, Barnett and
sophomore Ryan Burt (12th place,
25:49) each shaved over two min-
utes off their Colorado times. Eggle
chopped off over three minutes.
This radical change in times sug-
gests that the oxygen-poor high alti-
tude of Colorado contributed greatly
to the men's disappointing fourth
place score of 119 in the Rocky Moun-
"This meet was relaxing, but a
good confidence booster at the same
time," Sullivan said..
However, Sullivan noted one
Michigan weakness in the race that he
would like to see improved.
"I think the one thing we're go-
ing to have to do is get our third to
seventh place group closer to-
gether," he said.
