'M' track reaches goal,
secures spot at NCAAs
By Doug Stevens
Daily Sports Writer
March is known throughout college sports as the month when teams
scramble to earn NCAA Championship berths, hence the term "March
Madness."
This craze has certainly afflicted the Michigan men's track and field team.
Saturday the Wolverines hosted the Silverston Invitational at the Track and
Tennis Building. The meet was the last opportunity for many runners to earn
atrip to Indianapolis, the site of this weekend's national championships.
. Michigan's primary goal prior to the meet was to qualify the distance
medley relay team. The team of Nick Karfonta, Trinity Townsend, Ian
Forsyth, and Kevin Sullivan needed to run a 9:38 to assure itself a spot at the
NCAAs.
Karfonta began the race by running an 800 meter split of 1:53. After a 400
*lit by Townsend of about 47 seconds, Forsyth turned in a three-minute run
Tor 1200 meters. Sullivan needed to run a four-minute mile anchor leg to earn
a trip to nationals.
Racing not only the clock but rivals from Nebraska and Illinois, Sullivan
;fn a spectacular 3:56 final leg to assure the win for Michigan with a final time
;bf 9:35.22. The time not only qualified the relay team for nationals, but also
placed it in championship contention with one of the five best times ran all
ear.
"I was pretty confident when I took the baton," Sullivan, who will also

Lake Shore lacrosse too much for Wolverines

By Chris Carr
For the Daily
Spring is finally here and, after a
long wait, the Michigan men's lacrosse
team returned to the field.
So far, it has not played like defend-
ing Big Ten champions coming off a
15-1 season.
Saturday the Wolverines faced off
against the Lake Shore Lacrosse Club
of Chicago at Oosterbaan Fieldhouse.
Lake Shore, a city club made up of
college graduates, proved to be too
much to handle for the younger Michi-
gan squad as it hammered the Wol-
verines, 23-11.
"What they had in experience, we
hoped to make up for in speed," Michi-
gan coach Bob DiGiovanni said. "We
hoped to run them."
The Wolverines never set the
tempo of the game, as they were
plagued by bad passing, worse de-
fense and a lot of missed opportuni-
ties on offense.
Michigan came out slowly as
Lake Shore took an early advan-
tage. In the second quarter, the
Wolverines cut the lead to 6-3, and
it appeared Michigan was returning

to its old form.
However, whenever it looked like
the Wolverines would make a run, Lake
Shore answered and increased its lead
to 13-6 at the half.
At the beginning of the second half,
the Michigan offense seemed as if it
was coming alive, but missed some big
opportunities.
The Wolverines would get five or
six shots on several offensive series,
but could not find the back of the net.
When they managed to shoot on goal,
the Lake Shore goaltender came up
with big saves.
Michigan's woes continued on
the opposite end of the field as its
defense proved to be a disaster.
Many times, it left men open in
front of the goal, providing Lake
Shore with some great chances to
score. It took advantage of these
opportunities, increasing its lead to
17-7 after three quarters.
"A big reason why we lost was our
transition game," senior midfielder
John Kolakowski said. "The
attackmen and midfielders did not help
out the defense and they took advan-
tage of it."

"We got killed intransition and on
fast breaks," DiGiovanni said.
"We usually only lose a few games
all season and now we are 1-2,"junior
midfielder Paul Dreyer said.
"This is also our first home loss in
a long time so it was very disappoint-
ing. But it is good to play games like
this early to help prepare us for the Big
Ten season."
The Wolverine attack was led by
midfielder Lyle Shirley who had three
goals. Dreyer scored two goals and
added two assists. Attackmen Tony
DiGiovanni and Bill Argersinger had
two scores, while Doug Henke, Tom
Lall and Kolakowski netted one goal
apiece.
Michigan used three different
netminders throughout the game.
Freshman Tom Herrgott started the
contest, while sophomores Matt
Armstrong and Rick Gruber pro-
vided relief. Herrgott saved three of
13 shots, Armstrong stopped two of
nine and Gruber turned away six of
12.
"Our starting goaltender, Anil
Arora, was not here, which caused some
problems for us," coach DiGiovanni

said. "Also, we did not get to practice
all week because the lines on the field
were being re-painted. So that hurt us,
too."
Although there were a few bright
spots, the Wolverines were very disap-
pointed in their play.
"Our defense was horrendous,"
Dreyer said. "It was slow and lacka-
daisical. To give up over 20 goals is
horrible. The offense was OK. It
was not great, but it was not: ter-
rible."
"This loss is embarrassing,"
defenseman Marc DeCristofaro said.
Michigan dropped to 1-2 after
losing a hard-fought battle to the
Charleston Lacrosse Club, 17-16,
with the game-winning goal Dom-
ing with 18 seconds left in the game.
The Wolverines defeated Tennes-
see, 21-11.
"If there was a semi-pro league,
Lake Shore would be in it," coach
DiGiovanni said. ,"
"Many of their players played on
varsity teams at big lacrosse schools.
They are a good team, much like
Charleston who beat us on our Hilton
Head trip, but we played terribly."
