For the first time this season, the
Michigan women's cross country team
did not have to deal with the pressure of
being the highest-ranked team coming
into a meet. Instead, it was No. 4
Stanford that came into yesterday's
meet expecting to dominate.
However, solid finishes from fresh-
man twins Deanna and Pauline Arnill
helped Michigan claim its third con-
secutive Wolverine Interregional.
Deanna captured the top spot in the
field with a time of 17:25, while her
sister, Pauline, finished fifth' overall
and second for the Wolverines with a
time of 17:50.
"I just wanted the team to win,"
Deanna said. "There was a lot of sup-
port which makes you feel good."
. The other Michigan finishers in-
cluded freshman Eileen Fleck (11th),
seniors Jessica Kluge (12th) and Karen
Harvey (14th), and juniors Molly Lori
(21th) and Katy Hollbacher (25th).
Before the meet, Michigan coach
Mike McGuire stressed the importance
of having a strong showing against the
power-packed field that would be
present. Besides Stanford, the Wolver-
ines had to deal with No. 15 Wake
Forest, No. 16 Arizona, No. 18 Notre
Dame and No. 19 Washington.
"This was another strong race,"
McGuire said. "We're starting to put it

The meet was the one and only
home meet of the year for the Wolver-
ines. However, they have only prac-
ticed on the actual course three times.
The course, which is run on the
University Golf Course, features an
especially challenging hill on the third
kilometer that the runners believe is
"It's a hard course," Deanna said.
"We don't train on it alot and it has alot
The lack of familiarity with the
course almostcost the Wolverines when
Deanna ran towards the finish line only
three quarters of the way through. Due
to the number of loops that the runners
were forced to follow, she mistakenly
followed the wrong stripe on her last
pass around the final stretch.
"The race directors weren't paying
attention," McGuire said. "It's inex-
cusable. It wasn't her fault."
Second-place finish in 8,000-meters sparks hope for conference meet

For the Daily
Coming off an impressive first-
*place finish at the Michigan Intercolle-
giate meet last Saturday, the Michigan
men's cross country team hosted the
Michigan Intersectional Sunday with
With a second-place overall finish
and three runners placing in the top 10,
those expectations were met with suc-
"I'm happy," Michigan coach Ron
Warhurst said. "We ran pretty good up
#ront, and I'm pleased considering that
our runners haven't rested. This was an
importantrace with some good teams."
The Wolverines' standing in the
8,000-meter meet earned them 75
points,just behind Stanford who gained
69. All-American sophomore Kevin
Sullivan led Michigan's individual run-
ners by placing second with a time of
24:43, just behind Arizona's Martin
"I let (Keino) get ahead in the middle
of the race and just couldn't close it up
in the end, but it was a good run,"
Sullivan said. "I'm pleased with my
team's performance as well as my own."
Warhurst knows Sullivan did well,
but believes he has room for improve-
"I'm pleased with my
team's performance as
well as my own."

"Kevin did well today but he'll be
even better when he has had some time
to rest," Warhurst said. "When he is
rested, he won't let anyone get away
from him like he did today."
Other individual runners included
junior Scott MacDonald, who placed
seventh in the meet with a time of
25:10, followed by team captain Ian
Forsyth, whose time was 25:12. For
Forsyth, this was his first race since the
Rocky Mountain Shootout in Colo-
rado two weeks ago.
"I was hoping for a little higher
finish, but we ran pretty well as a team
for this point in the season," Forsyth
said. "And we should all be pleased
because this was a high-quality race as
faras individual runners are concerned.
It is a definite good first step for us."
While this was certainly an impor-
to make a point of what is lies ahead.
"The next three weeks are going to
be very important for," Warhurst said.
"They should prove to be even more
difficult than this meet, especially with
the Big Ten meet coming up in two
