Veterans bolster U of M cross-country team
Second-year runners Alex Bell (72nd in CIS Nationals), Alice Sherwin (76th), Melanie Gregorie (79th) Lacey Ginter (89th) earned points in their first nationals last season while Andrea Hesketh and Gina Tessman also ran in the nationals and will have another year of experience heading into 2008.
Although the men's cross country team lost five elite athletes to graduation, that squad returns a young but strong group which include two members of last season's sixth-place CIS team in second-year Desire Budigoma (24th at nationals) and fourth-year Paul Carr (40th).
Chris Belof, who ran in the 2006 CIS Nationals, returns from a year away due to injury, and has been named team captain while Adam Penner also returns after a year away. Joining them will be returnees Mitchell Man, Tyler Hynes and Colin Sheperd.
