'M' sends 7 tracksters to NCAA's

Coach Jack Harvey and seven mem-
bers of the Michigan men's track team
begin competition today in the NCAA
outdoor track -championships held on
the campus of the University of Texas
through Saturday.
The Big Ten champion Michigan
trackers are represented by long jum-
pers James Ross and James Henry,
high jumper Mike Lattany, sprinter
Butch Woolfolk, hurdler Gary Hicks,
and distance runners Dan Heikkinen
and Dave Lewis.
These seven competitors provided
the nucleus that led Michigan to an up-
set victory over second-place Indiana in
the Big Ten meet two weeks ago in
Champaign, Illinois. Harvey was
especially impressed by the perfor-
mance put on by Heikkinen in winning
the 10,000-meter, finishing second in the
3000-meter steeplechase, and nabbing a
third in the 5000-meter.
"It was fantastic that he placed 1-2-3
in those three races in a span of 18
hours," raved the coach about his
senior tri-captain. "Nobody ever per-
formed like that in a Big Ten meet
The long jumpers' performances in
DETROIT (AP) - Detroit's John
Wockenfuss belted a disputed three-run
homer to back Milt Wilcox's five-hit
pitching last night as the Tigers
defeated the Seattle Mariners, 8-2.
Wockenfuss lined a two-out drive into
the lower left field seats in the Detroit
fifth for his sixth home run of the season
with Al Cowens and Steve Kemp
aboard. Third base umpire Nick
Bremigan signaled the ball passed in-
side the foul pole, but Seattle left fielder
Dan Meyer immediately protested it
was foul.
Mariner manager Darrell Johnson
argued heatedly with Bremigan before
the umpire ejected him from the game.
In the Detroit fourth, Wockenfuss
lined a two-out single, and Mariners
starter and loser Floyd Bannister, 3-5,
walked Jim Lentine and hit Kirk Gibson
with a pitch to load the bases before
Tom Brookens singled to drive in
Wockenfuss and Lentine.
Brewers 3, Orioles 2
BALTIMORE (AP) - Robin Yount's
suicide squeeze in the eighth inning
scored Paul Molitor from third base to
give the Milwaukee Brewers a 3-2 vic-
tory over the Baltimore Orioles last
Molitor drew a one-out walk in the
eighth from Orioles starter Mike
Flanagan, 5-4, who allowed only six hits
despite the loss. Flanagan trapped
Molitor in a pickoff play, but he went to
third when Orioles first baseman Eddie
Murray threw the ball into left field
trying to get Molitor at second.
With ,Molitor running on the pitch,

the Big Ten's were almost as im-
pressive as Heikkinen's. Ross and
Henry's 1-2 finish in that event thrust
the Wolverines to an early lead in the
_meet which they never relinquished.
"We had to get off to a lead Friday
night," commented Harvey,"The long
jumpers really came through for us."
The next day Woolfolk came up with a
great performance that landed him in
Austin. After finishinga close second in
the 100-meter dash, he iced Michigan's
team victory with a first-place finish in
the 200-meter.
"What can you say about Butch?" in-
quired Harvey. "He hadn't run an open
200 all year, and he comes in here, wins
- the race, and qualifies for the
The other three performers failed to
win their events, but turned in perfor-
mances impressive enough to qualify
for the NCAA.
Lewis placed second in the 10,000 to
Heikkinen, Hicks came in second to In-
diana's Nate Lundy in the 400-meter
hurdles with a time well under the
qualifying standard, and Lattany had
qualified for the NCAA meet via a
previous performance.
Michigan is not among the favorites

in the NCAA meet; that role is reserved
for the Southern Cal's, the UCLA's, and
the Texas-El Paso's. But the seven
Wolverines in Austin today are a for-
midable seven.

Pistons rejected
coach Chuck Daly of the Philadelphia
76ers has rejected offers to be head
coach of the Detroit Pistons-and the San
Antonio Spurs, and will negotiate to ex-
tend his contract in Philadelphia, a
spokesman for the National Basketball
Association team said yesterday.
Daly, an aide to 76ers Coach Billy
Cunningham for three years, will
discuss his expiring contract soon with
general manager Pat Williams, a
spokesman for the NBA team said.

California eliminates,,
top-ranked Miami
Specialto theDaily
OMAHA, Neb.-Two Miami errors on Lyle Brackenridge's ground ball
in the last of the ninthinning brought home the winning run last night, as
California eliminated the No. 1-ranked Hurricanes, 4-3, in the College World
Series at Rosenblatt Stadium.
With the score tied, 3-3, and Mike Buggs on second with one out,
Brackenridge bounced a high hopper off the chest of Miami third baseman i
Mike Pagliarulo. Buggs broke for third and shortstop Ross Jones' throw
deflected off the Bear runner's helmet and into the dugout, allowing thewin-
ning run to score.Y
THE ELIMINATION of Miami (2-2) narrows the tournament field to
three teams: California (3-1), Hawaii (3-0), and Arizona (2-1). The latter two
also squared off last night with the Wildcats facing possible elimination.
Miami led its contest, 3-1, going into the eighth inning, behind the strong -
pitching of lefthander Neal Heaton, but California senior catcher Tom
Colburn poked a Heaton fastball over the leftfield fence for a two-run homer
run and a tied ballgame.
Golden Bear ace reliever Mitch Hawley picked up the win with 2% in-
nings of shutout relief. Heaton (18-4) took the loss.
