Stressed men's track team hits the road, again
By Chaim Hyman
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan men's track and
field team will compete in its third
outdoor meet of the season, Saturday.
The meet, against Kentucky, Indi-
ana and Southern Illinois, will be held
in Lexington, Ky. Although the meet
will be the third consecutive road
meet for the Wolverines, Michigan
coach Jack Harvey does not feel that
traveling will be the major distraction
for his runners.
"Ifanything, the away meets give us
better weather than we would get here,"
Harvey said. "The hard part about our
upcoming meets is the fact that they're
coming now, at the end of the term,
when everyone has exams and other
school-related work to complete."
The team agrees that the upcom-
ing exams will have some impact on
their competition level but not enough
to worry about.
"Exams may affect our training in
the next few weeks, butsince we will be
on the road, we won't have to worry
about the distractions that come with
being on campus," junior All-Ameri-
can Scott MacDonald said. "They
shouldn't be too much of a factor."
MacDonald said that this meet is
especially important to him. After
sustaining a knee injury, he was red-
shirted for the indoor track season.
MacDonald hopes that he and the
team will return to the performance
level they are accustomed to.
"We all need to step up because we
seem to be a little lackadaisical after a
good indoor season.'

Wolverine freshman Chris Hesse
(1 -0)came on in the eighth and pitched
two innings, giving up one run on one
hit to pick up his first collegiate vic-
"I'm just trying to get back into
the swing of things," MacDonald said.
"As a team, we all need to step up
because we seem to be a little lacka-
daisical after a good indoor season."
Since this meet will be scored,
Harvey feels that it is important for
the Wolverines to do well.
"This meet may not offer the same
competition that we had at North Caro-
lina two weeks ago, but it is impor-
tant," he said.
Sophomore Neil Gardner agrees.
"I hope to qualify automatically
(for nationals) in the hurdles," Gardner
said. "We've been struggling a bit,
but we should do pretty good."
Gardner also looks forward to
matching up with Indiana again.
"They're Big Ten rivals and (they)
beat us at the first meet," Gardner
said. "We want to show them that the
first meet was just a fluke." w
Although mostofthe team will make
the trip to Lexington, one noticeable
absence will be seniorTyroneWheatley.
The Michigan football team's ex-star
running back is preparing for the Na-
tional Football League draft, April 22.
Even though Wheatley will be a
first-round selection, Harvey feels he
might complete the season.
"He's in a position to do some-
thing this season and showed his tal-
ent with the time he earned at North
Carolina," Harvey said. "Football is
putting a lot of pressure on him, but if
he's interested he could finish out the

due to heavy rain.
The delay lasted one hour and 13

Eagles, 6-5, March 22, in an extra-
Eastern is led by shortstop Don
