Beating the "We had a poor ending to a great season," women's cross country track coach Burl McCoy said in his forthright way. "We beat good people." It was a quiet summary of a year that was weighted with impressive wins and gutsy individual performances. McCoy called the Texas Invitational at Georgetown the definitive "highlight of the year." Laurie Taylor led the Wildcats to victory and a place in university records by defeating the University of Texas by a smug 13 points. Not since 1977 had any school beat UT. Taylor ran her best 5,000-meter time of 17:52, just ahead of Wendy Norman of UTSA. Browning placed fourth, and Lopez beat her own best time by 30 seconds. The Wildcats had to save their celebrating to concentrate on the NCAA Division II meet in Warresnburg, Mo. The meet proved to be worth the wait, though, as the women ff"""" i" ,. odd faced U.S. Air Force Academy, the No. 3 ranked team in the nation, and put one over on a team that Vinsant told the Op- timift had been "anticipating an easy victory." Taylor and another runner vied with each other for the lead the entire race but then were both passed by Nancy Goodwin of Central Missouri State. Taylor, at 18:03 placed second. Browning and Lopez secured fourth and fifth, and Vinsant and Huddleston 12th and 14th in a team effort that captured the victory for the Cats. At the meet MCoy was named Southcentral Region Coach of the Year for 1982. With a division title in their pockets, the Wildcats then prepared to take on top teams in the country at the NCAA nationals in St. Cloud, Minn. Here their story reaches "one of those bad endings you can't seem to help when you take girls from the flatlands to the snow," said McCoy. Running in 6- to 8-inch-deep snow and a wind chill factor of minus 15, the women spent most of their energy just try- ing to keep their footing, Taylor said. ACU placed 10th. Lopez finished in 46th-place to be the top placer for the Wildcats. - Amy Haweld SCOREBOARD MEET TEAM PLACE DATE Sept. 18 Texas A8rM Invitational, 5 College Station Sept. 25 ACU Invitational, Abilene 1 Oct. 2 UTA Invitational, Arlington 2 Oct. 9 UT at SA Invitational 1 San Antonio Oct. 16 ASU Dual Meet, San Angelo 1 Oct. 23 Texas Invitational, 1 Georgetown Oct. 30 NCAA Division II Regionals 1 Warrensburg, Mo. 13 NCAA Nationals 10 St. Cloud, Minn.
