Virginia should pose the biggest challenge to
the Wolverines -- the Cavaliers were ranked third
in the nation in the preseason. But Michigan
already beat Virginia once this year, two weeks
ago at the Lexus Invitational in Oak Ridge,
Tennessee.
"We were able to beat them two weeks ago and
we're expecting to do it again," Michigan coach
Mark Rothstein said. "But they're going to come
out strong."
What Virginia lacks in strength, it makes up for
in depth.

Women's track will
run, sun in Arizona

By Chris Duprey
Daily Sports Writer
For the Michigan women's track team
tomorrow, it'll be like a family reunion.
After the sprint squad went to Jamaica
last weekend, both the sprinters and the
distance runners will meet and compete
in the same place this time. The
Wolverines, as a whole team, will head
down to Tempe, Ariz., for the Arizona
State Castillo Invitational.
The distance runners stayed behind to
train in Ann Arbor last weekend, taking a
week off from competition. This will be
the first full team outdoor competition
for the Wolverines.
"Our main goal is to get some good
weather and start competing," Michigan
coach James Henry said.
Aside from Michigan, Louisiana State
is the marquee attraction at the invita-
tional. The Tigers have won the NCAA
outdoor championship for 11 consecu-
tive years, and should provide the
Wolverines with all they can handle.
A large Big Ten contingent will greet
Michigan. Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota
and Ohio State will also be on hand to
compete. Perhaps the most serious con-
ference menace to Michigan is Illinois,
and even the Fighting Illini failed to
come within 20 points of the champion
Wolverines at Big Tens Mar. 1.
"Illinois has an excellent group of
sprinters, and Ohio State has a few good

athletes too;" Henry said. "But Louisiana
State stands above everyone."
After tapering for the indoor champi-
onship meets, Michigan has been kicking
up its training volume. The expected
result, according to Henry, will be tired
legs - not fast times.
"We may not be as sharp as we want to
be for two or three meets," Henry said.
"But we'll be competitive"
The immediate success of the
Wolverines has been a pleasant surprise.
With a solid but young sprint crew, hopes
were high for the future, but solid perfor-
mances from 400-meter dash runners
Tamika Craig and Regine Caruthers,
both freshmen, have provided some
recent points in the indoor season.
Sophomores Maria Brown, Kenise
Bocage and Olive Ikeh together com-
prised three-quarters of Michigan's 400
relay team at the Jamaica meet and
helped the Wolverines to victory. There's
no reason to believe that the young guns
can't keep contributing on a daily basis
during the outdoor season. Starting this
weekend, they will get their chance.
CORRECTION: In yesterday's article,
"'M' takes first in Jamaica", sprinter
Maria Brown was misidentified as
the only upperclassman in the 400
relay. Tania Longe is the only upper-
classman, while Brown, Bocage,
and Ikeh are all sophomores.

LOUIS BROWN/Daily
Both Michigan track teams will jet to Arizona this weekend to compete in Arizona
State's Castillo Invitational as the outdoor season gets underway.

varsity eight features an eight-man boat - called
a shell -- plus a coxswain, and pits the strongest
eight from each school against each other over a
2,000-meter course. The second varsity eight race
runs the same setup as the first varsity eight - an
eight-man shell plus a coxswain over a 2,000
meter course - but it pits the second-strongest
eight against each other. Often compared to a
junior varsity shell, it is a good measure of a
team's depth. Finally, the varsity four is a smaller,
four-man shell race, in which the individual is
more important - if someone messes up in a var-
sity four, it is more likely to cause a bigger prob-
lem than in an eight-man boat.
"Each of the three counts towards our goal,"
Rothstein said, "which is to qualify for nationals."
At the Lexus Invitational; the Wolverines won
the varsity eight by 3.0 seconds, but dropped the
second varsity eight to the Cavaliers.
"They have a lot of depth," Rothstein said.
"They are a strong program with a good coach."
The Tar Heels should not cause much of a threat

to Michigan.
"They're a young program, but they're coming
out very fast," Rothstein said. "It should be a good
race."
The Tar Heels are in their first-ever season as a
varsity team, and have had just one meet - the
Lexus Invitational. Michigan beat out the Tar
Heels in all three races.
One of the most important members of each
boat is the only one who's not doing any physical
work - the coxswain. The coxswain acts as an in-
shell coach, directing strokes, steering and con-
trolling the pace of the team. She sits at the back
of the shell and is the only member of the team
who actually faces forward.
The Wolverines' coxswains are Belinda Koo in
the varsity eight shell. Claudia Lopez in the sec-
ond varsity eight and Marcie Klein in the varsity
four.
Ohio State will also be at the meet, but will not
face Michigan. The Buckeyes, however, will face
both North Carolina and Virginia.
