no problem
for track
By Dena Krischer

They're here.
Fourteen members of Michigan's
men's track team stayed close to home
to compete at the Eastern Michigan
Open in Ypsilanti his weekend.
They're there.
Michigan sent eight athletes more
than 3,000 miles away to compete in
the elite Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut,
Calif.
They're everywhere.
The Wolverines overpowered their
position at the Eastern Michigan
Open, claiming nine top three finishes.
"This was a big break as far as stress
goes. It was another chance to com-
pete," freshman sprinter Jeremy
Schneider said.
"I think we're going to surprise a lot
of people (at the Penn Relays). I don't
want to say anything about winning
because it's such a huge meet."
*zhneider will be competing next
week in the 4x400-meter relay.
Schneider and sophomore Ravi
Smith claimed the top two places for
Michigan in the 400-meter run in
Ypsilanti.
Three other freshmen continued the
success of the younger Wolverines,
finishing second in their events
Rowingtad

Forty-degree temperatures, rain and
wind. It's not exactly the stuff rower's
dreams are made of. But while mid-
western weather is unpredictable, the
Michigan rowing team has proven to be
anything but.
q For the second consecutive weekend,
e Wolverines faced wicked weather
and still dominated their competition,
this time blowing away Ohio State and
Notre Dame last Saturday at the Griggs
Reservoir in Columbus.
Michigan's first and second varsity
eight boats won both of their races, tak-
ing the lead just 500 meters into the
race. The Wolverines took second in the
varsity four race and both novice races.
"We did our job and we did it well,"
*nior Heather Uhring said. "We gave
Notre Dame and Ohio State our best
possible race"

"Drew Henson is much better now
than he was in August 1998;" Carr
said.
Henson's competition, incumbent
*arter Tom Brady, also had his
moments Saturday, hooking up with
wideout Marcus Knight on deep
throws twice.
While the offense looked good, the
special teams had its share of prob-
lems. Placekicker Hayden Epstein was
erratic on his midrange field goals, as

kies margin
The Wolverines early lead was key to
their success, giving them a mental
edge over their competitors.
"When you get that far ahead, it's
mentally devastating to the teams
behind," Uhring said. "Even if they
have the physical power to catch up,
they don't think they can do it"
In the first NCAA Central Region
rankings of the year, the Wolverines
were ranked No. '2 behind Virginia.
Each varsity boat placed in the top four
of its class.
Virginia's clinching of the No. I seed
in the region guarantees them a spot at
nationals. As NCAAs approach, the
Wolverines' margin of victory becomes
an important statistic.
Margins of victory, unlike time,
which is subjective to weather condi-
tions, is likely to catch the eye of the
national championship selection com-
mittee.
he missed three consecutive field goals
from 42 yards.
Epstein also had two punts blocked
on the afternoon. Michigan had its first
three punts blocked, and the defense
recovered two for touchdowns.
But Carr didn't seem too concerned
about the kicking game problems.
"You can look at the blocked punts
from a defensive standpoint," Carr
said. "We are going to be aggressive in
the kicking game this season.
"As for Epstein, the last field goal he
made was 57 yards, and that should
give him some confidence," Carr said.

The Wolverines now must concen-
trate on this upcoming weekend's
105th running of the Penn Relay
Carnival in Philadelphia.
The Penn Relays, as the event is
called, has long been one of the most
highly attended track competitions in
the world.
Last year, the Wolverines clinched
first in the distance medley relay with
a time of 9:27.64.
of victories
With their schedule free until May 1,
the Wolverines will be using their time
to prepare for the Midwest Rowing
Championships in Madison, where they
will see teams such as Wisconsin, Ohio
State, and Michigan State - all of
whom they have already beaten this
season.
The Wolverines made a major splash
at the championships last year, when
they upset perennial champion
Wisconsin.
