Men take fourth at Big Tens

Despite four of
first-place finish-
es, the Michigan
men's track team
was only able to
muster a fourth-
place team finish
at the Big Ten
this past week-

By Chris Langrl l

There's a saying: You're only as good
as the sum of your parts. Never was this
more true than for the Michigan men's
track team. At this past weekend's Big
Ten Championships in Columbus,
despite four individual titles, the sum of
Michigan's parts wasn't strong enough
to pull out a title for the squad.
Michigan finished in fourth place
with a total of 97 points. Minnesota took
the outdoor championship with an
impressive 134.50 points. The finish
marks the third time that Michigan has
finished fourth in the 90's.
While Michigan wasn't able to pull
out an overall team victory, the team did
garner four individual titles over the
three-day competition.
Senior co-captains Kevin Sullivan and
Brian Theisen took individual titles with

victories in the 1,500 meter run and the
110-meter hurdles, respectively.
Sullivan's victory, with a time of 3:47.69,
eaned him the 12th Big Ten crown of
his career - - more than any other mid-
dle-distance runner in Michigan history.
Theisen won the hurdles with a personal
record and an NCAA-provisional-quali-

fatloone by the SORC

fying time of 13.87.
John Mortimer, who brought the
Wolverines to first with his victory in the
10,000, tried to keep his team there on
Saturday with another win, this time in
the 3,000 steeplechase. But the
Wolverines slipped to fourth overall,
where they would finish.
