Golf drives for Big Ten title
by Andy De Korte
Daily Sports Writer
"We're winning Big Tens,," se-
nior Becky Hayes proclaimed.
Although the weather has soaked
the Michigan women's golf team
all spring, it has neither dampened
the spirit nor the confidence of the
golfers or their coach.
Despite not attaining their goal
- a 320 scoring average - in four
spring tournaments, the Wolverines
are undaunted and excited about
their chances at the Big Ten
Championships next weekend in
"I don't think (missing 320)
matters, I mean most of the spring
we've been playing in the rain,"
Hayes said. "Our outdoor practices
have been limited. My game is com-
ing together right now. I shot my
best round last weekend.
"Also as far as this tournament
goes, we're going to Wisconsin and
we like that course. We know we
can do good there."
While Michigan coach Sue
LeClair was more reserved in her
prognostication, she was equally

unconcerned with the impact of the
disappointing spring performances.
"I still have confidence in my
team's ability to shoot 320s for
three rounds," LeClair said. "If we
can shoot up to our ability, we have
a good shot at the title as long as we
don't have one awful round, like
seemed to happen in the fall."
LeClair's 960 goal is also justi-
fied by the results of last fall's per-
formance on the same course. After
ruining their opportunity to win the
Invitational by carding a 333 in the
first round, the Wolverines re-
bounded furiously to finish at 961,
including a 308 in the final round.
While perennial powerhouse
Indiana's performances have fallen
off, other Big Ten teams have
emerged as troublesome.
"We've beaten Indiana in a cou-
ple of rounds this year," LeClair
said, "Iowa and Minnesota have per-
formed real well this year and prob-
ably will be the toughest competi-

"May Madness" is fast ap-
proaching for the men's track team,
but before they face the challenges
of the Big Ten and NCAA
Championships next month, the
Wolverines need to tackle some
more immediate tasks.
After an intense month of com-
petition and training, practice time
is being tapered because of final ex-
ams. However, for 13 Wolverines,
competition will not be lacking this
weekend, when they travel to the
Penn Relays in Philadelphia.
Penn is one of the premier out-
door meets, and top performers
from the Midwest, East and South
will be competing. The Wolverines'
contingent should be competitive.
Junior Jerry Douglas (110-meter
high hurdles) and sophomore Dan
Reddan (high jump) are both coming
off first-place finishes last weekend
at the Kansas Relays.
Neal Newman will team with Michael Eccleston, Brian Bozo, and Van
Cowan in the sprint medley relay this weekend at the Penn Relays.

Hillsdale awaits women's track
by Jeff Williams
Daily Sports Writer
After last weekend's postponement at Michigan
State, the Michigan women's track team is hoping to
warm up for the second half of the season.
The Wolverines will compete at the Hillsdale
Invitational in Hillsdale, Mich., this weekend with,
Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, and
"This will be the perfect competition for us,"
Michigan coachJames Henry said. "In fact, it will
probably be over our heads, but that's what we need
The Wolverines expect strong showings from
Michelle Bishop and Richelle Webb in the quarter-
mile event. Lisa Adams and Laura Jerman will also be
key performers in the 400-meter hurdles.
"(Bishop and Webb) have been running very well,"
Henry said. "I don't see why they shouldn't be at the
head of the pack this weekend. All four of them per-
formed very well at the Dogwoods a couple of weeks
ago, and I expect that to carry over."
Michigan also planned to send a contingent to the
Penn Relays this weekend, but Henry decided against it
because of poor performances and the large number of
injuries the team has had.
"We don't deserve to go to an event like the Penn
Relays right now," Henry said.
After Hillsdale, Michigan will travel to the
National Invitational in Indianapolis. The Wolverines
will use the competition at Hillsdale to gear up for the
national field in Indiana.
"We've been off for a while now because of the
weather," Henry said. "We're going to run as many
races, with as many people as we can. After this week-
end,_people will definitely be tuned-up for Indiana."
Also on the horizon ark, the Big Ten Championships,
when the amount of injuries the Wolverines' have sus-
tained will become more of a problem. Michigan has
lost approximately half of its scoring performers to
"I'm really scared for Big Tens right now," Henry
said. "Our team has been fragmented by injuries the
whole year. We'll probably have 60 or 70 points sit-
ting at home."
Senior Amy Bannister and sophomore Molly
McClimon will probably be among the Wolverines
not competing for the rest of the season. Prior to suf-
fering a hip injury, Bannister was Michigan's top dis-
tance runner. McClimon just had surgery and will
most likely apply for a medical hardship waiver.
Thrower Julie Victor has been the most consistent
performer for the Wolverines. Victor is coming off a
sixth-place performance at the Kansas Relays, where
she threw the discus 150'8".
"She's probably going to be our only person to
qualify for the NCAAs," Henry said. "She's not satis-
fied with the way she's been throwing, but I'm happy
with what she's done so far."
"This meet is really compet
tive," Douglas said. "I will be go-
ing up against a couple of All-
Americans in Ellis from Pitt and
(Qadry) Ismail from Syracuse, but I
really want a watch (the prize for a
first-place finish) and qualify for
Senior Brad Holwerda, junior
Brad Darrwill, and sophomore Toby
Van Peltalso will also make thb
trip to Philadelphia. Holwerda will
compete in the high jump, and Darr
will defend his pole vault title,
while Van Peltalso will also com-
pete in the pole vault.
Senior Brad Barquist, who has al-
ready qualified for the NCAAs in
the 5,000 meters, will attempt to do
the same in the 10,000 meters.
Senior Jeff Barnett will run the
3,000-meter steeplechase. Th-f
Wolverines will also enter a sprint
medley relay team of senior Neal
Newman and sophomores Michael
Eccleston, Brian Bozo and Van
After the Penn Relays, the
Wolverines will have two "tune-
up" meets before the Big Ten
Championship in Columbus, May
18-19. The Wolverines will trave
to the Central Collegiat-
Championships in South Bend, Ind.
May 4, but Michigan coach Jack
Harvey does not expect too much
from the meet, because his seniors
will be at graduation listening to
President Bush. May 11, the
Wolverines will host the Paddock
After finishing fourth at the Bi"
Ten Indoors in February, Harvey'
primary goal is for the Wolverines
to claim place in the top three with
Indiana and Illinois.
The NCAA Championships
will be the weekend of May 30 in
Eugene, Ore. Currently, Barquist is
the only qualifier, but Darr and
Newman should qualify, provision-
ally, on the basis of their indoor
performances. Harvey also feel*
that Barnett, Douglas, Reddan and
Holwerda all have good chances at
After finishing 12th at the
NCAA Indoor' Championships in
March and having four all-
American finishers in Barquist,
Darr, Newman, and Reddan, Harvey
is optimistic about the outdoor
"We could qualify anywhere
from three to seven guys," Harvey
said. "If we qualify seven and have
good performances at the NCAAs,
we have a shot of finishing in the
