Twelve members of Michigan's track squad will travel to Evanston,
Ill. to participate in the 47th annual outdoor Western Conference
Track and Field Championships at Dyche Satdium Friday and Sat-
urday. Although Illinois is virtually assured of retaining its Confer-
ence crown, the remainder of the field will be wide open with some
'00 entries competing for laurels.
Coach Ken Doherty expressed regret that final exams and
injuries have cut the numLer of men participating in this year's
meet down to the lowest in several years. Wolverine Captain
Charlie Birdsall will be forded to stay behind due to a persistent
foot injury, while quarter miler and mile relay anchor man Dick
Forrestel, will be taking finals in law school.
Representing the Wolverines in the dashes will be sprint artist
Val Johnson, who has been improving all year and has recorded fast
times in both the "100" and "220." Johnson has run the century in
9.9 seconds and has broken the tape in the furlong in 21.8 seconds.
In the mile and half mile, Herb Barten and Chuck Low will
run for the Maize and Blue. Barten's 4:20.6 in the mile and 1:55.5
in the half rate high among the list of performances in the Big
Nine this year. Low has pressed Barten on several occasions and
in last week's meet with Michigan State he was able to nip him
at the tape in the "880."
Surprise performer of the year has been Bill Osgood who will be
Coach Doherty's only entry in the hurdles. The sophomore speed-
ster came within three-tenths of a second of the Michigan low hurdle
record when he registered a fast 23.8 in the dual meet with California
at Berkley. His time was the best turned in
ence competition this season.
George Shepherd and Mel Detwiler will
for that event in Confer-
be the only Michigan er-
trants in the quarter mile due to the absence of Dick Forrestal. Shep-
herd is capable of a 49-second "440" while DItwiker has been running
it around the 50-second mark all season.
The only Wolverine likelV to grab first place honors vill he Con-
ference indoor shot-put champion Chuck Fonville who has cracked
record after record during the course of this year's outdoor season,
highlighted by a mighty heave of 53 ft. 11 in. two weeks ago against
Ohio State. No Western Conference athlete has been able to come
within a foot of that toss which exceeds the urent Big Nine record
by 1112 in. Fonville will also he amcng the leaUcrs in the discus which
he tossed 149 ft. at California.
Alex Morris and Justin Williams will be running the two mile
grind for the Wolverines. Morris registered the second best time j
of the current season among Conference athletes when he ran
9:39.8 against Ohio State. Williams has been improving all season
and his recent performances have greatly pleased Coach Doherty.
Only one Wolverine, Bob Harris, will participate in the high
jump. Harris'"best effort of the current season has been six ft. two
in., but he has gone as high as six ft. four in. in previous seasons.
Pole vaulters Ed Ulvestad and Gene Mocdy wind up the list of
Michigan participants. Both Moody and Ulvestad have been hover-
ing arounding around the 13 ft. mark all season and can conceivably
surpass that mark during this week end's proceedings.
