IN THE RUNNING AGAIN?: Hope
arose for Michigan this past weekend
4 hen Big Ten favorites Ohio-State and
corthwestern struggled to defeat

Wisconsin and Minnesota, respective-
ly,
The fact that both the Buckeyes and
Wildcats are mortal means the
Wolverines have at least a decent
chance to reach Pasadena - if they
can win their last six games.
"All you have to do is look at last
weekend," Carr said. "Anybody can
beat you.
"There are going to be some games
when teams win games, and people are
going to say, 'How did that happen?"'

'M' harriers air it out for second-place finish

By Devon Phelan
For the Daily
The Michigan men's cross country
team traveled to Orono, Maine, this
past weekend for the Murray Keating
Invitational.
The ninth-ranked Wolverines fin-
ished second with 59 points, behind
No. 3 Stanford (29).
Army finished third, followed by
New Hampshire, Kansas and
Marquette.
The Wolverines wanted to keep pace
with Stanford's runners, who Michigan
coach Ron Warhurst said he expected to
finish strong.
"I wanted to stay within 20 (to) 30
points of Stanford, and they beat us by
30," Warhurst said.
"We faced really tough competition
in the last two weeks, and it's going to
do nothing but help this week and in the
Big Tens, districts and nationals."
In an attempt to save energy for the
end of the race, Warhurst had the
Wolverines test a different racing strat-
egy.
"We experimented with some of the
guys going out a little slower, but that
backfired," Warhurst said.
At the two-mile mark, eight runners
were in front of Michigan's third man,
and Stanford's pack was 25-30 seconds
in front of Michigan's.
"We had to run like hell for the last
three miles,' Warhurst said.
Michigan sophomore John Mortimer
was not part of the experiment. He fin-
ished first with a time of 23:47. His
time beat the course record, set last year
by fellow Wolverine Kevin Sullivan.
Sullivan is out this year with bursitis.
"The field of runners was a lot deep-
er compared to last year and a lot
stronger," Mortimer said.
Mortimer bettered the time he
recorded last year on the same course

by 20 seconds. He attributes his
improvement to having a year of col-
lege running under his belt and a strong
summer training program.
Freshman Jay Cantin, who previous-
ly ran junior varsity races, moved into
the varsity lineup for the first time and
impressed Warhurst with his 18th-place
finish and time of 24:54.
"I was happy with my race, but we
would have liked to have been closer,
and we definitely have room to improve
for Sunday" Warhurst said.
Fellow freshman Steve Lawrence fin-
ished 26th.
"Stanford packed it up," Lawrence
said. "They had a big group in front.

"(But) we were able to pick off a lot
of people toward the end of the race,"
Lawrence said.
"But the Cardinal established itself
in front, and it was difficult to over-
come it."
Other Michigan finishers include
Todd Snyder (16th), David Barnette
(17th), Nic Watson (36th), Jeff Beuche
(37th), Ryan Swan (39th), Jeff Rogers
(57th) and Ryan Bert (65th).
The condition of the race course was
an important factor for the runners.
This weekend's race was harder than
previous races. There was heavy foot-
ing due to recent rain, and some of the
race was on roads as opposed to the

usual all-grass courses.
Cantin said that since part of the
race was on asphalt, the runners could
not wear their spikes. Instead, they
wore racing flats, which he said are
slower and make a noticeable differ-
ence.
This weekend, the Wolverines will
host the Michigan Interregional
Invitational at I 1 a.m.
Teams from all eight districts of the
country will participate.
Warhurst said the Wolverines will
not hold back in the beginning as they
did Friday.
"We are training to go out faster,"
he said.
