Wheatley in the 110 hurdles and also
ran the 400 hurdles, qualified for the
110 semifinals and finished with a time
of 13.96. However, he did not make it
to the finals.
(NCAAs were) to
showcase the strides I
made because there
were a lot of officials
from the Jamaican
selecting body - and
they were impressed."
- Neil Gardner
Michigan hurdler
"I fell victim to the lane draw be-
cause I was on the outside," Gardner
said. "I ran a little too fast. I was in
lane seven and there was nobody in
lane eight. I ran not being able to see
anyone."
However, Gardner was far from

disappointed with his performance.
"The national meet was essentially
to showcase the strides I made because
there were a lot of officials from the Ja-
maican selecting body - and they
were impressed," Gardner said.
Junior Trinity Townsend also com-
peted for Michigan in the 400 dash and
made it to the semifinals. He finished
20th overall with a time of 47.38. The
winner of the event was Greg
Haughton of George Mason, who ran a
44.62.
Track season has now come to a
close for the Wolverines. Many of the
athletes will go in different directions.
Sullivan will go home to Ontario,
Canada for a week but will return at the
end of the month for the European
World Championships, beginning in
August.
Wheatley is off to the U.S. Mobile
National Championships in Sacra-
mento, Calif., and will also be flying to
New York for football mini-camp with
the New York Giants.
Gardner is heading home to
Kingston, Jamaica and will try out for
European World Championships.
Townsend will stay in Ann Arbor
to take classes.

1 1/4). Longe also finished 10th in the
javelin and 18th in the 800. The top eight
finishers in each event receive All-
America status.
Amut it was the experience of running
with future Olympians, such as George
Mason's Diane Guthrie-Gresha, which
was great for Longe, said Michigan
coach James Henry.
It was great to see
Tania (Longe) see
athletes at a level she
will be at and in many
(ways) is."
-James Henry
Michigan track coach
"Tania got a chance-to compete f
the second time against Gunthrie -who
broke Jackie Joyner-Kersey's (NCAA
7 heptathlon) record - and got to make an
TO/Daiy acquaintance for the future," Henry said.
"It was great to see Tania see athletes at
a level she will be at and in many (ways)
is."
Although Longe's hurdle and shot
put performances were outstanding,
Henry feels that she could have per-
formed better in the other events. Hen
attributes her finishes to the weather.
"It was a hot two days and (Longe)
may have dehydrated," Henry said.
The third Wolverine to compete,
Monika Black, did not do as well as she
had hoped. Her high jump, reaching 5-9
1/4, put her in 13th place. UCLA's Amy
Acuff won the event with a 6-5 jump.
Black and Longe will spend the rest
of the summer in preseason training.
"Both have ben to the mountain a
have come back to the bottom to start
the foundation," Henry said.

The women's track team took 23rd at the NCAA Championships.
