The men's track team broke three
Michigan records on its way to a four-
th-place finish at the Big Ten Cham-
pionships at Dyche Stadium in Evan-
-w r 4 ston, Ill., May 18-19.
Junior Todd Steverson crushed the
school's oldest record - set by
assistant coach Kent Bernard in 1964
with a 45.47 in the 400-meter dash.
Steverson's time, a Dyche Stadium
record, was just 0.15 seconds short of
Eliot Tabron's (Michigan State) Big
Ten record set in 1982.
IN THE TRIPLE jump, Wolverine
Butch Starmack's 50'9%" broke
another school record. Indiana's
Larry Streeter won the event with a
52'7 ". Cory Gates of Wisconsin
r placed second.
Steverson, Omar Davidson, Senior
Bob Boynton and Junior Rick Swilley
broke Michigan's other record in the
mile-relay. The foursome's 3:05.73
was second behind Indiana's 3:04.45
and qualified them for the NCAA
Championships, May 31-June 1.
Michigan's fourth-place finish was
expected, according to head coach
Jack Harvey. "We ran really well, but
we figured we'd be fourth," Harvey
said. "We thought if Illinois, Indiana
and Wisconsin (third, first and
second, respectively) didn't do that
well, we could finish higher."
HARVEY SAID the team's perfor-

1, but will get another chance Friday ter of rebuilding," asserted the

What the Wolverines lack is a shot-
putter, pole vaulter and competitors
for the 100- and 200-meter dashes.
But despite its missing links,
Michigan sported several impressive
performances over the weekend.
Sophomore Joe Schmidt secured
second in the 3,000-meter steeple
chase at 9:06.6. Illinois' Mike Patton
took first just 0:04 ahead of Schmidt.
Boynton's 1:50.44 in the 800-meters
carried third place. Darren Kern of
Indiana captured first with a 1:50.09.
SENIOR CHRIS Fitzpatrick, a
Muskegon native, placed third in the
400-meter intermediate hurdles.
Hoosier Jon Thomas won first with a
48.95, a Big Ten and Dyche Stadium
record and NCAA qualifying time.
Distance man Chris Brewster, a
junior, finished third in the 5,000-
meter run while senior Dave Meyer
grabbed sixth. Meyer equalled his
5,000-meter finish in the 10,000-meters
at 29:21.09. Wisconsin's John Easker
took first with a Big Ten- and stadium-
Vince Bean's 24'4%" in the long
jump and Thomas Wilcher's 0:14.59 in
the 110-meter high hurdles were not
the solid marks Harvey expected
from his veterans. "They were the
only two disappointments," said Har-
Sophomore Scott Crawford -tied
Purdue's Mike Burns for sixth in the
high jump with a 6'8%". Indiana's 4
Scott Reed led all jumpers at 7'1%".
Middle-distancer Ron Simpson
finished in the middle of the pack at
3:49.64 in the 1,500-meters.
Former quarterback Dave Hall
placed ninth in a field of 20 in the
discus throw. Wolverine Mike Krauss
was sixth at 169'4". Michigan placed
sixth in the 400-meter relay.
In women's competition, the
Wolverines finished a disappointing
eighth with 39 points. Wisconsin was
crowned Big Ten champion, com-
piling 138 points. Junior Sue
Schroeder's 9:30.35 in the 3,000-meter
run and 16:33.20 in the 5,000-meter
were good enough for second. Joyce
Wilson and Cathy Schmidt also took
second in the 400 and 1,500, respec-
tively. Wilson's 52.53 oualified her for
the NCAAs. Angie Hafner, a junior,
tied for second in the high jump at
5'10%", a new Dyche Stadium
