For many Michigan teams, a trip to Evanston has
been the needed cure for the sickness of inconsistency
Such is the case for the Michigan softball team,
which faces Northwestern (1-7 in the Big Ten, 11-21
overall) in a pair of doubleheaders Friday and
Saturday. The Wolverines (4-6, 21-15) hope to attain
a winning record in the conference by the end of the
Though remote, Michigan head coach Carol
Hutchins will not yet concede the Big Ten Title. She
is also confident the Wolverines can earn a postsea-
son tournament berth.
"We're a little concerned about (a lack of consis-
tency)," she said. "We're still in the thick of things.
We're by no means out of it."
Hutchins believes strong pitching is an essential
ingredient for a Wolverine victory; Michigan
hurlers have tended to allow early runs. "Our pitch-
ing has got to come on the mound ready in the first
inning," she said.
A lack of experience and depth has plagued
Northwestern, comprised of only 12 players.
"We're a team that has been hurt with injuries,"
Wildcat coach Sharon Drysdale said. "We have a
small team, and we've had many people playing out
Drysdale believes Michigan's fifth-place, 4-6 Big
Ten record is deceiving.
"Michigan is a solid team. They have great hit-
ting, pitching, and defense," Drysdale said. "They've
played a good schedule. We know we'll be up against
one of the best teams in the Big Ten."
The Wildcats' only victory this season was a 2-1
triumph over Ohio State, the current Big Ten leader.

The college careers of eight
Michigan football players ended in
a 35-3 Gator Bowl triumph over
Mississippi Jan. 1. Their pro careers
will soon be decided when the NFL
holds its annual draft Sunday and

(ESPN): fullback Jarrod Bunch;
tailbacks Tony Boles, Allen
Jefferson and Jon Vaughn; offensive
linemen Dean Dingman and Tom
Dohring; and defensive backs David
Key and Tripp Welborne.
Bunch, Dingman, Dohring,
Jefferson and Key participated in the
NFL Scouting Combines in
Indianapolis February 6-11. The
NFL Scouting Combine Office,
Blesto Scouting, and three NFL
teams that do not use the scouting
services - the Denver Broncos, Los
Angeles Raiders and San Francisco
49ers -- determined the top players
at each position.
"We just take so many of the top
kids after sitting down and deciding
who are the best pro prospects,"
said Tom Healion, Event
Coordinator for the NFL Scouting
Invitation Camp. "We pool our five
grading systems together and take
so many of the top kids for the
numbers we want at each position,'
Earning the highest grade at his
position, Bunch emerged from th
workouts as the top available fuRi
back this season. He is also the
draft's highest-rated Wolverine.
"He had a great workout and;js
the the No. I-rated fullback," ESP1
draft analyst Mel Kiper said. "He
was not utilized as a runner, but as4
blocker, and he did what he was
asked to do.
"He has the size and quicknessAot

This weekend, the men's track team will
face some of its toughest competition at the
Kansas Relays in Lawrence, Kan. Twenty-five
to 30 schools, including host Kansas, Kansas
State, Loyola-Chicago, Missouri, Iowa, and
Kentucky. will comnete in the meet.
In the running events, Jerry Douglas
(hurdles), Rudy Redmond (hurdles), Brian
Bozo (400 meters), Van Cowan (400 meters),
and Michael Eccleston (200 meters) should
compete. For the first time this season, the
Wolverines will enter a 4-mile relay team,
consisting of Neal Newman, Sean Mackay,
Jeff Barnett, and Brad Barquist.
The pole vault promises to be one of the
meet's most competitive events. Top amateur
vaulters, both collegiate and non-collegiate,
will be in the event. Michigan will enter Brad
Darr and Toby Van Pelt; Van Pelt vaulted a
personal best last weekend, and Darr is look-
ing to surpass the 18 foot barrier.
"Kansas is one of the better places to
vault," Darr said. "It is one of the more com-
petitive fields, and the conditions are great.
There is always a tail wind."

juries and poor performances, the
Michigan women's track team hopes
to face a less competitive field in

against some top competition," Michigan as-
sistant coach Ron Warhurst said. "When you
compete against good people, there is extra in-
