Men's cross-country
reserves shine at Eastern

th'i t f
e e o

,,seek

By CHAIM HYMAN
For the Daily
It might be said that this one didn't
count. It might be said that this one
wasn't important. It might even be said
that this one didn't matter at all. But to
those on the Michigan men's cross
country team who participated in the
Eastern Michigan Open on Friday, this
meet was a chance to gain a little per-
sonal glory.
Many would consider the Eastern
Michigan Open to be a rather minor
meet since anyone, regardless of team
affiliation, was allowed to run. Head
coach Ron Warhurst agreed with these
sentiments, since he didn't allow his
top seven runners to compete, prefer-
ring that they rest up for the Big Ten
Championships to be held later this
week.
However, this 8,000 meter event
was a good chance for less-talked-
about Wolverines to shine, and per-
haps better their chances of gaining a
place among the nine Michigan men
who will compete in the Big Tens.
Warhurst will consider the results
of this race before announcing his final
decision on who will make up the

nine-man Wolverine team at the Big
Ten on Saturday.
"I'm pretty sure on who the team
will be already, but this race could
have an impact on my final decision,"
Warhurst said. "I just want to make
sure."
Warhurst ran his second seven
men, and he strongly encouraged the
team's redshirts to participate on their
own.
Sophomore Nick Watson, who ran
for the team, believed this meet was
as important as any other.
"This race definitely gave those of
us who ran a lot of much-needed expe-
rience," Watson said.
Jeff Bueche, also running for the
Wolverines, doesn't feel that the ab-
sence of top runners like team captain
Ian Forsyth and All-Americans Kevin
Sullivan and Scott MacDonald had a
negative impact on this race.
"Since this was an unscored
meet, we got a shot to prove that our
team is much deeper than the top
seven," Bueche said. "This was a
competitive race and we ran pretty
well, so I'm happy with how things
turned out."

WHO: Jason Botterill
TEAM: Ice Hockey
HOMETOWN: Winnipeg, Manitoba
YEAR: Sophomore
EuGIBILTY: Sophomore

WHY: Last Saturday at Yost Ice Arena, Botterill scored a power-play goal with one second remaining in the third period to give Michigan a 5-4
win over Colorado College. The goal was his third point of the evening and gave the Wolverines a split of the two-game set.
BACKGROUND: At St. Paul's Prep in Concord, NH, he tallied 48 points in 22 games before moving on to Michigan. This past summer, Botterill
was a first-round choice of the Dallas Stars in the NHL Draft.

Women runners relax

By DAN McKENZIE
Daily Sports writer
The Michigan women's cross
country team may have received a
glimpse of their future Saturday at
the Eastern Michigan University
Classic.
The event's relaxed atmo-
sphere gave coach Mike McGuire
a chance to run some team mem-
bers who haven't had a chance to
run yet this year. No score was
kept and the outcome of the meet
did not have an effect on the na-
tional rankings of the teams in-
volved.
The open format of the meet al-
lowed McGuire to run his freshmen
without losing their redshirt status.
Rather than representing Michigan in
the meet, the runners were considered
to be running "unattached."
"This meet provided us with a good
opportunity to run a lot ofouryounger
kids," McGuire said.
Freshman Michelle Slater, running
in her first cross-country meet ever,
placed first for the Wolverines, coming

in second overall with a time of 18:46.
Other Wolverines following
Slater were juniors Heather Grigg
(18:52) and Michelle Spannagel
(19:10), freshman Tiffin Goodman
(18:56), redshirt sophomore
Tanya Manson (19:08), and
redshirt junior Mayrie Richards
(19:13).
The event was only Richards' sec-
ond, after being away from the sport
fora year and a half due to an Achilles
tendon injury.
"She's pretty talented," McGuire
said. "She's been fortunate enough to
remain healthy this fall and hopefully,
next year she can be even stronger than
she was two years ago. She is showing
a lot of progress in her training."
Richards is not the only Wol-
verine attempting to overcome an
injury. Junior All-Big Ten runner
Kelly Chard has been hampered
by injuries and junior All-America
Courtney Babcock has yet to run
in a meet this year due to a knee
injury.
"The ability to face adversity is

aEastern
the sign of a good team," McGuire
pointed out.
In addition, some runners were
still feeling the effects of the Wolver-
ine Interregional which had been run
last week.
"That course is very challenging,"
McGuire said. "I think that because of
it, (the runners) weren't as sharp. But
I think overall, they ran a solid race."
Michigan team members who
did not compete in the Classic
took advantage of the time off to
rest for the Big Ten Champion-
ships, which begin on Saturday at
the University of Iowa. Manson
and Grigg will serve as alternates
in that race.
"I think that both runners are ready
to step in if they're needed," McGuire
said.
The Wolverines' strong perfor-
mance in the Classic added to the
good feelings that team members share
right now, thanks in part to a No. 6
national ranking.
. "I'm real happy with how everyone
is racing," McGuire said.

PONTIAC (AP) - The Detroit
Lions, criticized for their inability
to make big plays, made several of
them Sunday.
Mel Gray returned a kickoff 102,
yards for a touchdown, Barry
Sanders rushed for 167 yards and
Detroit's defense forced four
turnovers as the Lions ended a
three-game losing streak by beating
Chicago, 21-16.
Despite the turnovers, Chicago
had a chance to win in the final
minute. But Erik Kramer's pass to
Nate Lewis on a fourth-and-5 from
the Detroit 20 was broken up at the, ~
10 by Robert Massey with 41
seconds left.
The Bears, last in the NFL
against the rush, surrendered 183
yards rushing as their three-game
winning streak ended.
