Cross-country starts slow

Men’s and women’s cross-country started the season with two meets each. The teams no longer have
the talents of Marci Klimek, Shawn Fisher or Chris McIssacs, all class of ’10, although McIssacs is back as
an assistant coach for the 2010-11 season.
The teams finished third out of four schools at the Lewis & Clark Invitational on Sept. 11. They also lost
at the Lewis & Clark/Linfield Dual on Sept. 1. The men and women have the opportunity to prove their hard
work at the Willamette Grass Course on Sept. 17 in Salem, Ore.
