The Victor
Sullivan wins NCAA title'

By Monica Polakov
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan men's track team came away
from NCAAs this week in Knoxville, Tenn., very
pleased. Although the Wolverines placed 19th as
a team, a few individuals stood out.
One in particular - Kevin Sullivan.
Sullivan ran to a National Championship in
the 1500-meter run, taking his third NCAA title.
"I'm very happy with the win and the time,"
Sullivan said. "I took it easy and stayed in the
back of the pack in the first part of the race.
"I moved up in the middle segment, and had
a good enough kick to go ahead in the end. I felt
strong in the last 300 meters and figured I could
take it in from there. It's great to win in such a

great field of runners"
Sullivan won with a time of 3:37.57, beating
out Eastern Michigan's Paul McMullen who fin-
ished second (3:38.74) and Arkansas' Graham
Hood who was disqualified for unspecified rea-
sons.
However, Arkansas took first place as a tea
and UCLA took second place with an outstandini
performance.
Michigan also had some great finishes.
Tyrone Wheatley finished eighth in the 1i10
hurdles with a time of 13.99, earning him an All-
America honor. Clemson senior Duane Ross won
the race with a time of 13.32.
Sophomore Neil Gardner, who competed with

'M' women make strides

By Monica Polakov
Daily Sports Writer
The women's track NCAAs, which took place
at Tennessee last week, held no surprises. The
National Championship went to Louisiana State,
with UCLA finishing a close second.
Michigan sent its best.
Senior Karen Harvey. freshman Tania Lomge
and junior Monika Black.
Nationals began on Wednesday, with Harvey
running the 3000-meter run- her only event:
Harvey rait a strong race, which qualified her for
Friday's finals. She finished 10th overall with a
time of 9:41.41.

However, Harvey was not happy with her per-
formance. She hoped to run a faster race and
knew she could because her semifinal time was
9:36.73.
Michigan's Longe competed well in various
events. Friday, she competed in the first four
events of the hepthathlon. At the end of the da
Longe accumulated 3,300 points. She finish
ninth in the 100 hurdles, fifth in the shot put, I Ith
in the high jump and 13th in the 200 dash.
Longe's final three events continued Saturday,
when she missed All-America honors by two
places. In the long jump, she had her best finish (19-

SPORTING VIEWS:
Moeller situation has
been beten to death
By John Lerol
Dlaily Spurts Editor
So who's this Lloyd Carr guy anyway'?
And why do so many people seem to care about who coaches this school's
football team?
Sure, Michigan football gets ABC's attention nearly every Saturday in the
fall. Football merchandise, ticket and concession sales account for a large part
of the Athletic Department's revenue.
But is the University of Michigan really a victim in this whole mess?
The football team will roll on. The University will continue to go about its
other business. And the rest of the world has certainly put Gary Moeller out of
their minds.
Moeller made a mistake. He probably had made many before.
He may not have been the best football coach for this University at this
time.
All coaches, at one time or another, quit, resign or get fired. It happens to
everyone. There was nothing wrong with Moeller's dismissal as football
coach, but please, do not dismiss Gary Moeller.
Not too many people know Moeller for anything more than wins and losses
and what is printed in the newspaper. He may not have been suited to coach the

Moeller fined
$400,wants
to coach again
By Nicholas J. Cotsonika
Daily Sports Editor
Former Michigan head football coach Gary Moeller was
fined $400 May 30 in 46th District Court - forone count of
sahilt and battery on a police officer and another of disorder y
conduct - stemming from his involvement in an April 28 in-
cident at a Southfield restaurant.
Moeller pleaded no contest to each charge, the legal
equivalent of pleading guilty. The maximum sentence would
have been a $500 fine and 90 days in jail for each count.
However, Judge Bryan Levy felt Moeller had already
been penalized enough. Moeller resigned from his position as
the Wolverines' head coach after the incident and was re-
placed by former defensive coordinator Lloyd Carr.
"You have paid a price which far exceeds the crime co
mited," Levy said. "Two hours is not a defining moment tn
a life. You have given much to the public through your teach-
