The season ' s highlights included the team ' s 28rd place finish in the NCAA championships in Fayetteville, Arkan- sas, and placing ninth out of ten teams at the Big Ten tournament where the team had several outstanding placers. Sophomore LSA student Alan Webb won the 1,500-meter title, sopho- more kinesiology student Nathan Brannen placed third in the 800-meter run, and 2002 engineering senior Mike Wisniewski took third place in the 10,000-meter run. To open the season the team hosted the Jack Harvey Invitational. Although the meet was non-scoring, the team scored one first place and ten other top three finishes. This was Sour Injury plagues the men ' s track team and causes the Wolverines to come in 9th in the Big Ten Championship, despite high expectations. a positive start to the season, but when LSA senior and captain Derek Applewhite pulled a hamstring at the Invitational, it was a sign of negative things to come. Soon the majority of the team ' s strong players suffered from injury. Kinesiology senior Brent Cummings also pulled a hamstring, kine- siology senior Ike Okenwa, LSA sophomore Nathan Taylor, engineering junior Dustin Gress, and others were also injured. Many teammates participated again later in the season, but were still hindered by their injuries. " Many came back from injuries, " said School of Art senior Andrew Ochs, " but it ' s always hard to come back because the injury is always in the back of your mind. " The team went into the season expecting unprecedented success. Ochs, who competed in the hurdles, said, " We were sup- posed to be amazing. " Webb and Brannen were all-Americans in high school. The half-mile runners, including computer science senior Jeremy Schneider, computer science junior Dan Cooke, and Brannen provided a strong founda- tion for the rest of the young team, who also had every reason to be optimistic. However, in the end the season only left room for improvement. Assistant coach Fred LaPlante said, " We had a young team and a lot of top athletes. We learned a lot that will help us out next year. " In the words of Gress, " We had a few good points that did not work out in the end. We just need to gear up and get at ' em next year. " SPORTS 141
