times for NCAA regionals.
Michigan stood out in the 800-meter
run with NCAA regional-qualifying
times from sophomore Nick Willis
who placed first, sophomore Nate
Brannen (fourth) and freshman
Andrew Ellerton (sixth).
"The 800-meter guys did really
well," said sophomore Seth Waits
about his teammates' performance.
"Willis is usually a miler, but he really
excelled in this race."
Brannen - currently the NCAA
indoor track champion in the 800-meter
- said 1e didn't do as well as he had
hoped. It was the sophomore's first time
running this race since he won in the
NCAAs in early March.
"Two hours before the race, a big
storm came and everybody just wanted
to go home," Brannen said. "It was
raining, it was windy, and then we had
to focus for the race. I had a hard time
getting that focus."

Sullivan, who competed in the 800-
meter, took seventh place, behind all
three Michigan runners.
Sophomore Tarn Leach also had rea-
son to celebrate after he took fourth in
the 3000-meter steeplechase. His time
of 9:03.98 was fast enough to qualify
for the NCAA regionals.
Leach improved his time in the
event by an impressive nine seconds.
"A week ago at the Penn Relays, I
missed the regional qualifying time by
two tenths of a second, so I was pretty
happy (this week)," Leach said.
Michigan's two other qualifying
times came, from senior Alex
L'Heureux and junior Tom Greenless,
who took third and fourth in the 1500-
meter run, respectively.
The Wolverine 4x400-meter relay
team fought through the nasty weather
and took second (3:18.92.)
Next weekend, Michigan hosts the
Len Paddock Invitational.
