Ann Arbor relays
By JIM GINDIN
In winning 12 of 17 events, the
Michigan men's track team dominated
the Ann Arbor Relays held yesterday
afternoon at Ferry Field.
The meet, in which seven colleges
and several athletic clubs participated,!
was fairly informal as no team scores
were kept. Michigan coach Jack Har-
vey said the relays were primarily a
tune-up for the Big Ten championships
to be held next Saturday and Sunday at
THERE WERE NO individual sur-
prises except for Scott Ericksson's
record-breaking throw in the discuss
event, Harvey said. Ericksson's toss of
195'3", eight-and-a-half feet farther
than he'd ever thrown before, set a
Michigan and Ferry Field record and
qualified him for the NCAA tournament
next month. He also won the shot put
with a throw of 59'214"-
Ron Simpson also won two events in
the meet. In the 1500-meter run, he
passed Chicago's Dan Henderson in the
final 100 meters and held on to win in
3:51.77. Simpson won the 800 meters in
The Wolverines swept the top three
places in the 3000-meter steeplechase,
Bill Brady winning in 9:16.07 with Doug
Heikkinen and Joe Schmidt following.
Dave Lugin set a personal record in
winning the high jump with a leap of
TOM WILCHER, who has already
qualified for the Olympic Trials and the
NCAA championships, won the 100-
meter high hurdles in 13.92 seconds. He
also ran the final leg of the winning 400-
meter relay team.
Other Michigan first places belonged
to Derek Harper in the long jump, Phil
Cole in the triple jump, Jim Schmidt in
the 5000-meter run and the mile relay
team of Rob Granger, Derick Stinson
Bob Boynton and George Yoanides.
Harvey said the Wolverines have a
very small chance of winning the Big
Ten championships next week. "We
could only sneak in there if Indiana
doesn't run well."
Michigan should finish second or
third, he said. Wisconsin has been run-
ning very well lately and will contend
for second place.
Wolverines with a good chance of
winning individual events in the cham-
pionships are Ericksson in the discus,
Harper in the long jump and Simpson in
the 1500-meter run. Todd Steverson,
who pulled a hamstring in the 200 meter
run, should be available to run next
Michigan runners Bill Brady and Doug Heikkinen battle it out in the early
going of the 3,000-meter steeplechase yesterday at the Ann Arbor Relays.
Brady and Heikkinen finished first and second, respectively, in the event.
