By Jeremy Horelick
For the Daily
When it comes to intra-state rivals
Michigan State, Eastern Michigan, West-
ern Michigan and Central Michigan, the
Michigan women's track team shows no
mercy.
With a 173-point performance at the
Michigan Intercollegiates Friday in
Ypsilanti, the Wolverines reaffirmedtheir
dominance over inferior intra-state foes,
beating upon second-place finisher East-
ern Michigan, which earned 87 points.
"I'm not surprised with our team re-
sults," senior Kelly Chard said. "(The
win) is a good stepping stone. A lot of
people (set personal bests). A lot ofpeople
built their confidence going into the next
couple of meets."
Chard, who won the 5000-meter run
with a time of 17:33.99, was only one of
several Michigan seniors turning in im-
pressive performances Friday.
Senior high jumper Monika Black
eclipsed her own meet record of 5-foot-8
set last year, by clearing the bar at 6-foot-
1/2-inch, qualifying provisionally for the
indoornationalsin Indianapolis in March.
All-AmericanCourtney Babcock con-
tributed additional senior leadership,
cruising to a 4:52.57 mile en route to her
first-place finish. Senior Katy Hollbacher
notched a 17:44.44 in the 5000, placing
her second only to Chard but nearly a full
half minute ahead of the next closest
finisher.
In addition, seniors Mayrie Richards
and Jayne Greinergave fine performances
in the 3000 and shot put respectively.
But for all the experience the Wolver-
ines' veteran athletes provided, it was the
underclassmen who demonstrated that
Michigan's track and field excellence
will likely continue well into the future.
Sophomore pentathlete Tania Longe
led the way with first-place finishes in
both the long jump (18-feet-10 1/2 inches)
and triple jump (40-feet-I 1/2 inches)
shattering the former meet records in
both events. And her time of 7.97 sec-
onds also earned her the silver in the 55-
meter hurdles, while qualifying her pro-
visionally for NCAAs.
"To me, I'm not satisfied with that
yet," Longe said. "I want to automati-
cally qualify (for the NCAAs)."
The NCAA selects its field for the

nationals by taking a handful of athletes
whose outstanding performances have
automatically qualified them for the in-
door championships.
The rest are taken from a list of provi-
sional qualifiers. At this point in the sea-
son the number of provisional qualifiers
who will actually make it to Indianapolis
remains undetermined.
"Tania is very intense and competitive,
and will continue to improve," Michi i
coach James Henry said. "I don't thW
folks have seen the last of Tania Longe."
And they haven't seen the last of many
other young Michigan track and field
stars either.
Freshman Stephanie Wigness earned
"Our overall oal
is to improve our~
intensity and
improve our
efforts."
- James Henry
Michigan women's
track Coach
second place in the shot put withr
throw of45-feet-I 1/2 inches. AndsoW
more Brandy Taylor snagged the bronze
in the 400 with hertime of57.77 seconds.
But Henry said, the surprise came from
the half-milers.
"The impact they made last week I was
really happy with," he said.
And the impact they made Friday was
even stronger.
The trio of Katie McGregor, Michelle
Slater and Angie Stanifer placedsec<
third and fourth respectively in the
mile, with McGregormissing the top spot
by a mere .21 second.
Freshman Alison Noe recorded a blis-
tering 10:13.96 in the 3000, placing her
third behind Richards who clocked a
10:11.72. Freshman Sarah Hamilton
grabbed third place in the mile (5:08.11)
followed by senior Jenn Stuht (5:16.27).
"Our overall goal is to improve our
intensity and improve ourefforts," Henry
said. "(Today) they obviously respon9
to those instructions."
