everyone who was supposed to win for
us came through and did their job,"
said Michigan coach Jack Harvey.

covering the distance in 21.26 seconds.
"Two crucial events were the 100-
meter dash and the 200-meter dash, and
Bruce and Woolfolk came through in
both events to score some important
points for us," said Harvey.
IN THE 40-meter relay, Woolfolk
and Bruce teamed up with Derek Har-
per and Darold Gholston to take
another first place for Michigan with-a
time of 40.49.
The Wolverines enjoyed equal suc-
cess in the field events. James Ross and
Harper garnered first and second,
respectively, in the long jump with
leaps of 25'6%" and 24'3 ". In the high
jump, David Lugin placed first with his
jump of 7'1%". "Winning the high jump
helped us a great deal," said Harvey.
Michigan's John Nielson took third in
the shot put with his heave of 59'33/4",
behind first place finisher Kevin Akins
of Ohio State, who set a new Big Ten
record by tossing the shot 65'7". Akins
set a new Ferry Field record last week
in the Ann Arbor Relays with his throw
of 64'0".
IN THE POLE vault, Indiana's Dave
Volz also set a new Big Ten record,
vaulting 17'104". Wolverine Scott
Eriksson threw the discus 173'3 " to
finish first in that event.
Michigan did equally well in the
distance events. Brian Diemer gar-
nered a first place finish for the
Wolverines in the 3,000-meter
steeplechase with his time of 8:45.48.
Diemer's time also qualified him to
compete in the NCAA championships.
Gerard Donakowski added points to
the Wolverine team total with his
second place finish in the 10,000-meter
run with a time of 29:40.18. Jim Stintzi
claimed first place in the event with
his Big Ten record-breaking time of
29:40.18. Donakowski also placed third
in the 5,000-meter run in 14:14.62, while
another Wolverine, Bill O'Reilly, took
fourth with a time of 14:16.85. Indiana's

a new Big Ten outdoor track record in
the 100-meter dash with his time of 10.25
seconds. Woolfolk took third in the
same event with his time of 10.40 which
was fast enough to qualify him to com-
pete at the NCAA track championships
tobeheld at Baton Rouge, La. in June.
Bruce came back to capture his
second individual title of the day in the
200 meters with a time of 21.08.

Jim Spivey took first in the event with Michigan took the lead in points on

Club Sports Roundup
The Michigan baseball team may have won four straight games to advan-
ce to the College World Series, but this is not the only winning streak among
Michigan teams. Michigan's 'A' rugby team notched its fifth straight win
this past Saturday against Grand Rapids.
The Wolverine's 22-6 victory at Grand Rapids improved their record to 12-
1-2. The Michigan attack was once again paced by John Hartman. Hartman
scored two tries (eight points) and two penalty goals (six points).
David Weber also helped make the day a long one for Grand Rapids as he
scored two tries. Grand Rapids could muster only two penalty goals during
the contest.
The 'B' team which had destroyed the Detroit Tradesmen's 'H' the
previous weekend had the tables turned on it this weekend as it ended up on
the wrong side of a 12-6 score.
Second place finishers are said to try harder, but in the case of the
Michigan sailing team a runner-up placing served virtually the same pur-
pose as a victory.
In their meets on May 9-10 and May 16, in which the top two teams in each
earned a spot in the national meet to be held on June 8, Michigan placed
second to Ohio Weslyan both times.
In the Mid-West Intercollegiate Sailing Championships held at Michigan
State on the ninth and tenth, the Wolverines beat out the host Spartans for
the second berth to the nationals.
Sailing for Michigan on Lake Lansing were Doug Wefer (skipper), Harry
Levinson (skipper), and Scott Ferguson (skipper), Joanne Kure, Sarah
Crane and Ellen Brody.
On the sixteenth, the Wolverines competed in the Midwest Dinghy Cham-
pionships at the University of Wisconsin. This meet was a team versus team
race in which all the squads had all their boats on the water, and the team
whose boats placed highest, were given the fewest points.
Ohio Weslyan won with 43 points, followed by Michigan and Miami of Ohio
with 49 and60 points respectively.
The nationals will be held at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis,
Maryland on the mouth of the Severn River. Sixteen teams will compete.
