Michigan men finish

By Monica Porakov
Daily Sports Writer
The Michigan men's track and field
team did just what it wanted. This week-
end, at the Big Ten Championships in
Minneapolis, the Wolverines finished sec-
ond, only 11.5 points behind champion
Wisconsin.
"We were happy to get second,"
Michigan coach Jack Harvey said.
Neil Gardner agreed. "Michigan did
remarkably well - very few mishaps,"
Gardner said.
All-American Kevin Sullivan took
two victories, one in the 800-meter and
one in the 1500. Scott MacDonald and
Nick Karfonta also added points to
Michigan's overall score of 112.5.
MacDonald placed fifth in the 800 and
fourth in the 1500 and Karfonta finished

eighth in the 1500.
The Wolverines also had a strong fin-
ish in hurdles. Gardner and Tyrone
Wheatley battled it out for first and second
place in the110 with Gardner winning the
title.
Wheatley finished second in the100
dash (10.53), an event that he never com-
peted in this season, and Gardner finished
second in the 400 hurdles (50.81).
However, it was distance runner
Shawn McKay who made the difference
for the Michigan. He surpassed all expec-
tations when he placed second in the
10,000.
"McKay pulledthrough in the 10,000-
meters." Gardner said. "He never scored
before so it upset a lot of schools. Every-
thing clicked from there."
Gardner was also happy with his own

2nd at Big
performance. "God was good to me this
year and helped me stay healthy,"
Gardner said. "It was through him that I
did well."
Michigan will now wait for Satur-
day to find out who will qualify for the
NCAAs. Sullivan, Gardner and
Wheatley are expected to qualify.
Trinity Townsend and Ian Forsyth may
join them.
Women's track:
The Michigan women's track and
field team was disappointed this week-
end.
The Wolverines finished fifth at the
Big Ten Championships in Minneapo-
lis with 67.5 points. The winner of the
event was Illinois with Wisconsin,
Minnesota and Purdue following, re-
spectively.
"We did not perform where we
wanted to," Michigan coach James Henry
said. "Our first goal was to be in the top
three. Our second was to be in the uppper
division (top 5), so we got out second
goal"

Ten meet
The weekend did have some great per-
formances. Tania Longe won the long
jump with a 20 feet 2 1/2inch finish. She
also finished second in the heptathlon,
breaking an 11-year-old Michigan record
and scoring an NCAA provisional 5,429
points.
"It feltgreat winning (thelong jump),"
Longe said. "I just got done with the
heptathlon and open hurdles, and was go-
ing to try to do my best in this event. I felt
good, not too tired."
Michigan also saw great finishes from
Beth Gould, who took third in the
heptathlon with 4,723 points and Jen
Peterson, who finished seventh with 4,173
points.
Senior All-American Karen Harvey,
who was competing for the lasttime in the
Big Ten Championships, also helped out
Michigan by placing third in the 1500 and
second in the 3000.
The Wolverines also got contributions
from Michelle Slater who finished ninth in
the 1500 and 12th in the 301)1. Jen Barber
and Jen Stuht finished sixth and I 1th re-
spectively in the 3000.
