'M' runners have much to build on for upcoming Big Tens
By Rhonda Gilmer
Daily Sports Writer
With six weeks to go until the Big Ten Champi-
onships, the Michigan women's track team has a
lot of in-house sweeping up to do. To prepare for
the strain and stress imposed on athletes during the
meet, the Wolverines are working hard now.
Michigan has already showed success by winning
its past meet, the Michigan Triangular, and
expects to improve upon its current times.
"We're going to continue to improve as a team
as the season goes along," Michigan coach James
Henry said. "This was a more lax meet that gave
us some confidence for future meets."I
Being at home may have been an advantage,
which gave some positive foresight for the team.
"There were a lot less people, which was nice
- it was just Michigan teams," sophomore
Rachel Sturtz said. "We were able to see what
points we could get and how well-balanced the
team was." -
Also in the lineup this past weekend was junior
Tasha Phillips. She competed in and won the 100-
meter low hurdles. Phillips, who was injured
throughout indoor season, has been an additional
element to the team dynamics for outdoor season.
It's an added bonus that she could return after
indoors and compete at a high level.
"I knew I had the advantage going into the
meet," Phillips said.
After her first major win at a scoring meet,
Phillips should be able to recuperate from her dis-
appointing indoor season.
In the distance events, the team is performing-
well. Senior Katie Jazwinski has already provx-t:
sionally qualified for NCAA in the 1,500 run arld
is expected to qualify for additional events.
"We don't have the depth in the distance all-,a:
around, but we do have it in Katie Jazwinski
who's capable of scoring in three meets," Assistan
coach Mike McGuire said. "This upcoming week-
end we expect Jazwinski to place well enough fort i
a NCAA provisional time in the 5,000-meter run."
