Milwaukee Cross Country Opens 2007 In Chicago
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (Aug. 31, 2007) - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men's and women's cross country teams kick off the 2007 season this weekend, competing in the UIC Invitational Saturday, Sept. 1, in Chicago.
The Panthers have not opened the season at the UIC Invite since 2005, the third-straight year in which they did.
A UWM freshman has won the women's race the last two times Milwaukee has competed. Senior Angie Huebner was victorious in her first collegiate meet in 2004 and Megan Johnson followed suit in 2005. The Panthers have posted records of 1-2 in 2005, 3-0 in 2004 and 2-2 in 2003 at the meet. The UIC Invitational features dual meet scoring.
On the men's side, Josh Nygren posted a win for Milwaukee the team's last trip to the meet. UWM's men's squad has posted 2-2 records in 2004 and 2005 after a 1-2 mark in 2003.
Milwaukee returns to action next Friday (Sept. 7) at the Crusader Open in Valparaiso, Ind. The meet is hosted by Valparaiso, the newest members of the Horizon League.
