BY JEFF SLADE AND MICHAEL SPATH M ichigan's six fall Olympic sports teams are wrap- ping up their regular sea- sons this October — with the exception of volleyball, which competes through Nov. 27 — with both soccer teams, both cross country squads and field hockey all in posi- tion to compete for conference titles. Here is a sport-by-sport look at the Wolverines' Big Ten projected finish and NCAA prospects. MEN'S CROSS COUNTRY Projected Big Ten Finish: Michigan was ranked fifth in the country in the Oct. 20 USTFCCCA Coaches' Poll, the highest spot of any Big Ten team, ahead of Wisconsin (No. 27), Michigan State (No. 19) and Indiana (No. 28). U-M came out ahead of the Bad- gers, considered to be the conference frontrunner, in head-to-head competi- tion at the Greater Louisville Classic Oct. 3 and the Wisconsin Adidas Invi- tational Oct. 16. Chasing Their Dreams Michigan's Fall Olympic Sports Teams Are Closing In On Strong Big Ten Finishes And NCAA Berths Fifth-year senior Mason Ferlic took first place in two of U-M's first meets this sea- son, while leading the Wolverines to a No. 5 national ranking in the Oct. 13 USTFCCCA Coaches' Poll.
