Second straight title for runners
Jazwinski, Radkewich and Froud take three of top 10 spots
By Rhonda Gilmer

Hard work is second nature to the
Michigan women's cross country
team. This past weekend the
Wolverines repeated their success by
nabbing another first-place finish
and took home a second-straight
team title at the Spiked Shoe
Invitational at Penn State.
Last weekend marked the first time
the Wolverines have run a 6K race.
"The Track and Field Committee
did move the distance up. This is
everyone's first 6K cross-country
race ever," Michigan coach Mike
McGuire said. "We can't be intini-
dated by the fact that we're racing
The Wolverines provided stiff
competition by scoring a total of 52
points, with five runners finishing in
the top 20.
Senior Katie Jazwinski, brought
home another victory. Running a
time of 20:52, Jazwinski outran the
rest of the competition by 24 sec-
onds. Seniors Katy Radkewich and
Julie Froud followed with seventh
and eighth place finishes.
Rounding out the top 20 were
sophomore Jane Martineau in 16th,
and freshman Lindsey Gallo in 20th.
West Virginia finished second in the
race with 86 points.
McGuire attributes the team's great
start to two factors. The first is com-
mitting themselves to running consis-
tently during practice and secondly
running both physically and mentally
The Wolverines do it, despite a
busy school schedule.
"It'd be great if everyone could just
go to class, gather everything up and
take your test, and not worry about
anything at night," McGuire said.
"You don't worry about studying or
papers that might take you awhile."
But these athletes don't have that
luxury. On top of schoolwork they
also have to prepare themselves for
"The same preparation (it takes in
the classroom) comes with being the
best possible athlete you can be,"
McGuire views running as a com-
mitment on top of everything else
that goes with it.
"It entails a little more than the
two-and a half hours of practice. It's a
lifestyle commitment," McGuire
said. "Sleep nutrition all those types
of things" go into being a runner.
Jessie Veith and the Michigan field hockey team play the fifth and final game of their
homestand today at 3 p.m. The Wolverines have outscored their past four opponents 21-4.

Playing Miami of Ohio is like eat-
ing the outside of an Oreo.
You've got to do it before you get
to the good stuff.
The fourth-ranked Michigan field
hockey team opens its Big Ten season
Friday, but first it will finish off a
five-game homestand against Miami
today at 3 p.m.
Miami is the fifth-consecutive
non-ranked opponent the Wolverines
will play at Ocker Field. where
Michigan has already annihilated
four opponents this season by a com-
bined score of 21-4.
The RedHawks' offensive produc-
tion thus far has been downright
offensive, as they scored only five
times in their first five games. But
Saturday, Miami ended its scorine
drought in cathartic fashion as they
trounced Indiana 9-0.
The matchup today will feature a
reunion of two Californian co-cap-
tains named Kelli. The Wolverines'
Kelli Gannon will tussle with fellow
Escondido native Kelli Roche.
Miami's backup goalie Lisa Rodelo
also graduated from San Pasqual
high school a year after Gannon and
Roche, making the reunion even
more emotional for Gannon.
"I'm excited to play my old high
school teammates and especially my
best friend." Gannon said. "I'm also
just happy that I get to see and talk to
her. I'm a little nervous about the
outcome of the game and how each
other's feelings will be. But I'm just
happy that we finally get to compete
against each other."
Roche is one of Miami's best play-
ers and is a double threat. Primarily a
defensive specialist, last year Roche
led the team with 64 shots and I I
The tame also features some local
talent returning home. Miami mid-
fielder Shallen McClain attended
Ann Arbor's Huron High School
before heading to Oxford to play
McClain led Huron in scoring as a
junior and was named the team's
MVP senior year.
Her return to Ann Arbor will dis-
play two teams with different senti-
ments. Miami is high on its 9-0 vic-
tory, but Michigan wasn't happy with
its 2-0 defeat of Rutgers. a team No.
3 Old Dominion beat 11-0.
Michigan coach Marcia Pankratz
said she didn t want to have a repeat
performance in Michigan's final
"We have to come out and fix the
things that were broken," Pankratz
said. "Hopefully we will.",
The Wolverines will do their best
not to overlook Miami, but it's clear
that the team's coaches and players
are anxious to move on to playing
"It'll be exciting when we get intoj
the Bigo Ten season," Pankratz said.
"We always look forward to that and
I think we'll be ready."
Malchow sets Olympic
mark in 200 butterfly
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -
Inspired by placards bearing that
message and a dominating U.S. per-
formance, Tom Malchow set anoth-
er record at the Olympic pool yes-
terday, leading preliminaries of the
200-meter butterfly at 1:56.25
Malchow nipped .01 seconds off*
the Olympic mark set by American
Mel Stewart in winning gold at the
1992 Barcelona Games.
In their much-hyped showdown
with the Australians, the U.S. team
held a 9-2 edge in total medals after
Day 2 of the eight-day competition.
The 24-year-old native of St.
Paul, Minn., already holds the world
record in the 200 fly. He swam

Carter supports Toronto's
Olympic Games campaign
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) - Vince
Carter threw his support behind
Toronto's bid for the 2008 Olympic
Games, although he wouldn't say
whether he'd still be playing in that city
by the time that year arrives.
"I don't know. I always look ahead
and I never look back on the past but I
think that's looking too far ahead,"
Carter said Monday at a news confer-
ence to hype Toronto's bid.
Carter, who has won the Rookie of
the Year award and the slam dunk con-
test in his two seasons with the
Raptors, is under contract for the 2000-
01 season. The Raptors hold an option
for the following season and after that
thev can match any offer Carter
receives on the free agent market.
That ensures that Carter will be play-
ing in Toronto at least until 2003, and
by then the world will know whether
the 2008 Olympics will be held in
Beijing, Paris, Osaka, Istanbul or
"I think it's safe to say the city of
Toronto didn't know much about the
game of basketball until we started too
win, and now they've taken the time to
understand the game and learn the
game and support Toronto," Carter
said. "I know it's a hockey town, but
now the love is starting to grow.
"It feels like home."
SEC chief upholds official's
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Bobby
Gaston, the Southeastern Conference
chief of officials, said Monday that the
line judge was in the right spot to make
the call when he allowed Florida's late
touchdown to stand in the Gators' 27-23
win over Tennessee on Saturday.
Line judge Al Matthews ruled that
Florida's Jabar Gaffney had possession
of the ball in the end zone long enough
for a touchdown.
Jesse Palmer's 3-yard pass with 1
seconds left went to Gaffnev, who had
the ball for an instant before it was
knocked away by the Vols' Willie Miles.
The play has generated a great debate,
with Vols coach Phillip Fulmer and his
players believing the pass was incQm-
plete, and Gators coach Steve Spurrier
saving the call could have gone either
