down to Cornell and Michigan.
"I'm really excited to play Cor-
nell," Harlock said. "We're atCthe
point in the season that anything
can happen."
The first two rounds of the tour-
nament are best-of-three series.
Should the Wolverines beat the
Big Red, they would travel to
Boston to play Boston University.
Michigan beat the Terriers in
Boston earlier this season, 8-6.
This is the first time Michigan
has made the tournament since the
1976-77 season.
"Last year, it was our goal just
to get there," Evans said. "This
year, that's not good enough. We
want to try to go all the way."
Of the four teams to receive
first-round byes, Michigan has
notched victories over three, beat-
ing Boston University and Lake
Superior State on the road, and
Maine in the finals of the Great
Lakes Invitational.
Tickets for the Cornell series
are $7 for reserved and $5 for gen-
eral admission. They will be sold
at the CCRB today and tomorrow
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in addition
to regular hours at the Athletic
Ticket Office.

Four on 'M' tracks
earn All-American

by Chris Carr
Daily Sports Writer
Four members of the Michigan
track team reached All-American
status this past weekend. Brad
Barquist, Brad Darr, Neal Newman
and Dan Reddan received this
honor after their performances at
the NCAA Indoor Championships
in Indianapolis.
Barquist, a senior from Belle-
vue, Wash., earned a spot on the
team for the third time. He was an
All-American in 1988 and 1989 in
the 3,000 meters before he was
redshirted last year. This season he
moved up to the 5,000 meters and
placed fifth at the meet, running a
personal best of 13:48.
Darr, a junior from Hudson,
Mich., took fourth place in the
pole vault clearing 17 feet 8.5
inches. "I didn't go as high as I
wanted to," Dan said. "I am still
very pleased, though, with getting
All-American honors."
Newman, a Detroit senior, took
seventh place in the 800 meters
end set a Big Ten conference in-

I -

door record by posting a time of
1:47.86 in the semifinal heat.
"The biggest difference for me
this year was staying healthy,"
Newman said. "Now, I'm pretty
psyched-up for the outdoor
season."
The biggest surprise on the day
was the performance of Reddan in
his first national meet. The sopho-
more from Rochester, Mich., took
third place in the high jump clear
ing 7 feet 2.5 inches.
"I tried not to think about it be-
ing the NCAAs," Reddan said.
"For me, it was just another meet.
It was a matter of getting hot and
building my confidence early, and
I did that by clearing the first three
heights on my first attempt."
Men host
gy1nastilCS
season finale V
by Charlie Wolfe
Daily Sports Writer
In its farewell home performance
of 1991, the Michigan men's gym-
nastics team will be hosting Temple
and Western Michigan tonight at
Keen Arena.
While the Broncos are a re-
spectable squad, they will most
likely serve as the little brother of
the meet while the real dogfight will'
pit Michigan versus Temple. Having
been barely nipped by the Wolver-
ines last season for the tenth and fi-
nal qualifying spot in the east re-
gional competition, the Owls will
have special incentive according to
Michigan head coach Bob Darden.
"They're coming in here with a
little vendetta," he said.
The Wolverines are currently in
sixth place in the east region this
year. Darden's squad is mindful of
having the favor of a year ago repaid
by Temple, and the squad wants to
finish the season in style in front of
its home crowd.
"It's very important that we come
out strong and do very well in our
home gym, in front of our home
crowd, on our equipment," Darden
said.
Turf sales to
help library,
athletics
by Matthew Dodge
Daily Sports Writer
During the Cold War, astro-
nauts returned from the Moon with
trophies of their cosmic travels -
small pieces of moonrocks. When
the Berlin Wall fell, zealous en-
trepreneurs quickly sold chunks of
the socialist barrier for profit.
The Michigan Athletic Depart-
ment will soon continue this tradi-
tion by selling pieces of its per-
s6nal Mecca - the Michigan Sta-,
dium turf. The artificial carpet has
been torn up and parceled into var-
ious novelty items.
Proceeds will benefit both the
athletic department and the U of
M Library. The library will use the
donations to preserve its vast, ag-
ing collections.
"I am very pleased that inter-
collegiate athletics has decided to
share the profits from this project
with the library," Dean of the Li-

brary Don Riggs said. "This deci-
sion reflects well on the partner-
ship between athletics and aca-
demic affairs."
"We've always had an histori-
cal relationship with the library,"
Athletic director Jack Weidenbach
said.
The catalog of items includes:
a set of six coasters, each irn-
printed with the block 'M' logo, is
$30; A framed 8 X 10 inch piece
of turf, sporting the block 'M' logo,
is $50; An 18 X 27 inch mat, fea-
turing the block 'M' and
'MICHIGAN' written in the end
zones, is $60.
Prime turf pieces - the end
zone letters and yard line markers
- will be sold through a mail or-
der auction until September 1,
