ll Cat win in opening meet to run against UT's top runner, a former national champion in cross country, and wasnlt able to hold her off. ' g McCoy had hoped for another perfect score at the TAIAW Division II meet, but the Cats missed by two points as they scored 17. In the regional meet the Wildcats again missed a perfect score, scoring 19 points. The win in the regional meet advanced the team of Taylor, Lambden, Vinsant, Espinoza, Lopez and Denise Smith to the national meet in Pocatello, Idaho. At the national meet the University 'of Utah won the title in the snowy weather. The weather and the higher-than-4,000- foot altitude contributed to the Cats' seventh-place finish and hindered other southern schools, McCoy said. Taylor, in 14th place, was the first ACU finisher. Lambden was 22nd, Lopez was 44th, Smith was 49th, Espinoza was 82nd, and Vinsant was 85th. McCoy wasn't having a very good year with the women's basketball team, so he was very glad to have the track season coming up. He must have known his team's poten- tial because the first indoor meet was l almost as successful as the first cross coun- try meet of the year. At the West Texas State Indoor Track Meet the Lady'Cats took first place in 13 of 14 events to easily outdistance second place Texas Tech, 180-126. The only event the Cats didn't win was the shot put - and they didn't enter anyone in that event. "You don't ever expect something like this to happen," McCoy said "especially in the first meet of the year. You always hope for a performance like that, but it usually doesn't come." The Cats had double wins from freshman Teresa Parker in the long jump and the 60-yard dash, freshman Melodee Byrd in the 60-yard high hurdles and high jump, and Lambden in the one- and two- mile runs. Taylor won the 880-yard dash, Lopez won the 1,000-yard rung Glyna Beaty won the 300-yard dash, and Brenda Evans won the 440-yard dash. The Wildcats also won the 880-yard, one- and two-mile relays. After the indoor meet McCoy said that nobody would be able to touch the Wildcats from the half mile on up. As the season progressed that prediction held true in almost every meet. ...,...,.,. . , The team's next competition came in Austin at a meet with some Division I schools, and the team appeared to be run- ning just as well as it had in the first indoor meet. No point totals were kept at the meet, but ACU runners turned in some im- pressive times for the first outdoor meet of the year. Taylor missed setting a school record in the 1,500-meters by two seconds as she won in 4:33. With only 200 yards left in the race she was 20 yards behind, but was able to just nip the other runners. McCoy thought the best race for the Wildcats came in the half mile. "We entered four girls CTaylor, Lopez, Huddleston and Lisa Garnerj in the race to see what their time would be for the two-mile relay," McCoy said. "All of them finished in under 2:14. If we put all the times together it comes out to an 8:53. We ran a 9:08 in the national last year, and the winning time was 8:56." The team started a winning streak at the Rambelle Relays that continued for most of the Wildcats outdoor season. McCoy had not planned on winning the meet - and was only trying to get his team ready Women's Track 99
