MEN'S TRACK AND FIELD
Seniors finish Ferry Field careers

By BRIDGET O'DONNELL
Daily Sports Writer
For three seniors, it was a last
hurrah.
At the Len Paddock Invitational
this weekend, the final home meet
of the season for the Michigan
men's track and field team, Andrew
Ellerton, Jeff Porter and Michael
Whitehead hit all the right notes in
their swan-song performances.

Despite windy conditions atFerry
Field, each of the three seniors won
his respective events.
"I'm going to miss this place,"
said Porter, who won the 110-meter
highhurdles and was also amember
of the winning 4x100-meter relay.
Ellerton won the 800-meter run,
posting a NCAA regional qualifying
time in the event. Although it was
the second time Ellerton set a quali-
fying time in the 800, it was one of

his fastest races this season.
Whitehead set a season-high in
the triple-jump, with a distance of
53-41/4 - two feet farther than his
previous best. He wonthe event and
posted a regional qualifying mark
for the fifth time this season.
But overall, it was a quiet week-
end in Ann Arbor for the team,
which posted seven first-place
finishes and four NCAA regional
qualifyingmarks. Of those four, just

sophomore aean McNamara was a
first-time qualifier.
McNamara edged out junior
Mike Woods to finish third in the
1500-meter run with a time of
3:47.34, just beating the regional
qualifying time of 3:47.80.
Junior Dan Harmsen also post-
ed a regional qualifying time in
the 400-meter dash, his fourth of
the season.
Other notable performances
from the team included first place
m finishes from James Reichardt
in the 3000-meter run, Andrew
Wechter in the 400-meter run, and
Chris Baldwin in the pole vault.
Michigan coach Ron Warhurst

was satisfied with the team's per-
formance, treating it as more of a
preparation for the Big Ten Outdoor
Championships, which take place
next weekend at Penn State.
"It was a low-key meet, but we
mixed and matched things up,"
he said. "You've got to save a little
energy for next week."
Porter agreed the meet was nec-
essary to work on the small details
for next week.
"We're still putting things
together," he said. "This was our big
test for the Big Tens next week. It
was important to work on the tech-
nical things in races.
"We haven't put out good perfor-
mances as a team."
Warhurst didn'tlist specific goals
for Big Tens, but he's hoping for the
best. That might be difficult with
sophomore Lex Williams, the top-
ranked 1500-meter runner in the
Big Ten, out with mononucleosis.
Still, Warhurst is hopeful for his
team's chances next weekend.
"I hope everyone performs at
their season best," he said. "We
should be healthy."
