LESSONS LEARNED FOR MEN
Year 2000 review - Michigan looks to improve on an eighth-place finish
at the Big Ten Outdoor Championships last June. The combination of a
talented freshman class and the return of key upperclassmen puts the
Wolverines in position to crack the top half of the league.
Key returners - The performances of Derek Applewhite and Jeremy
Schneider will be vital to the success of the runners. Shot putter Nick
Rogers is coming off a record-setting performance at the Michigan
Fresh faces - Brian Turner and Tom Greenless expect to ride the
momentum of outstanding opening cross-country seasons.
Ike Okenwa - Michigan's leading sprinter expects
big things this year. Okenwa took seventh and fifth in the
100-meter dash during the last two years' Big Ten -
Championships. At Big Tens he had a Michigan season
and personal-best of 20.57 in the 200-meter. After win-
ning the 60 and 200 at the Intrasquad, Okenwa should be
ready to challenge the best sprinters in the league.
Mike Wisniewski - Top long-distance runner will
try to become Michigan's first All-America in 10
years. As the Big Ten champion, he took 13th in the
NCAA championships - just barely missing an All-
America nomination. Wisniewski continued his
excellence by easily winning the 2400 at the
Michigan Intrasquad. His mark of 6:38.02 beat the
next best time by slightly over four minutes.
