The season ended on an up, however. Running against eight teams at the last meet of the year, the Lone Star Conference meet in Georgetown, proved to be the culmination of a year of hard work. ACU's runners finished second, fourth, fifth, 14th and 15th to run away with the title for the first time in several weeks. The team opened its season by finishing fourth out of eight schools in the ACU Invitational at Abilene's Nelson Park. The cross country team was in San Angelo Oct. 9 for a dual meet. ACU runners finished second, third, fourth, eighth and ninth to capture the race. ASU had been picked before the season to win the conference in cross country. With all the preliminaries behind them, the Cats traveled north for the NCAA Division II regional meet in War- rensburg, Mo. The Cats had to finish at least second to qualify for the nationals. "We learned a lot from that meet," Coach Kittley said. The team Hnished fourth behind three Missouri schools. ACU's Doug jones made a great showing at the regional meet. He was nipped at the tape, finishing second but quali- fying for the nationals. Even though the team had not qualified as a unit, it had one more meet before the season was over. "It's a little weird to run the conference meet after the regionals but that's what happened this year," Kittley said. The Cats fulfilled their coach's prediction. "It was our goal at the beginning of the year to win conference, and we did it," said Kittley after the meet. "I'm just really proud of SCOREBOARD DATE MEET TEAM PLACE Sept. 25 ACU Invitational, Abilene 5 Oct. 1 UTA Invitational, Arlington 5 Oct. 9 ASU Invitational, San Angelo 2 Oct. 16 ASU Dual, San Angelo 1 Oct. 30 Regional Nationals, 3 Warrensburg, Mo.

He still had a chance to be an All-American at the nationals in St. Cloud, Minn. jones traveled to the meet with ACU's womens team. When they arrived in St. Cloud they were greeted by an ugly sight for a cross country runner, Drifts of snow, some as big as five feet, blanketed the area. After a season of determina- tion,jones was about to run the most important race of his career in a snow flurry. jones gave a valiant effort and finished 26th, just one place away from All-American status. 1982 was a good year for ACU cross country runners as the Cats' young team not only compiled some pretty im- pressive results but emerged as the LSC champions. - Phillip Dutton Q Q LH .
