Lady Cats start trong, don't top till national The 1981-82 women's track and cross uuntry teams had their high points and eir low points this year. The team Lrnered high points during the track ason to win seven of 11 meets where iints were kept. Their low points came in oss country where the lowest score wins a eet. In the fall cross country season the Lady ats won the state and regional titles and iished seventh in the nation. In the 'ring track season the Wildcats placed cond behind Rice University in the state eet. but scored only nine points at the itional meet. The cross country team went into the ll season as defending state champions, his page: Maria Espinoza followed by eary teammate Denise Smith, leads com- 'tition in a distance race. Opposite page: ea Huddleston practices handing ojf the :ton to Tina Lopez. and Coach Burl McCoy talked confidently about his team's chances. "I don't see how anyone in the state can beat us if we're running just half as good as we can,', he said early in the season. "In fact, I don't think there are many in the state that can beat us even in Division I." The strength of the team was evident from the first week.

"You don't see too many of those." But the team repeated the perfect per- formance two weekends later in San Angelo at the ASU cross country meet. McCoy got a chance to see how his team would do against the Division I schools the next weekend at the Arlington Invita- tional. And the Wildcats didn't disappoint him, placing second to the University of Texas and beating Texas A8LM, Houston, North Texas State and Northeast Louisiana. "Our kids performed very well," said McCoy. "This virtually put us second in the state. It really tickled us because we were the only Division II school there. When you beat the Aggies and Houston, you feel like you've done something." ACU was near perfect when the team traveled to Lubbock to run with Texas Tech and ASU. This time the Wildcats scored 16 points. At the UT Invitational in Georgetown, Texas slipped by ACU in the last 400 yards to win the relay race, in which each team member ran a different distance and then handed a baton to the next runner. The Wildcats led for most of the race and gave Taylor a good lead, but she had Women's Track 97
