One for the Team The women ' s cross country team sees many leaders emerge throughout the season, helping the Wolverines emerge as BigTen Champions. The women ' s cross country team glided to a successful 2001 campaign, led by some talented young runners who showed the promise to elevate Michigan from a successful program to a dominant one. Sophomore Lindsey Gallo consistently led the Wolverines, finishing with the team ' s best time in all six meets. The most impressive day for the Wolverines came at the Big Ten Championships, where Michigan finished behind only national power Michigan State to place second in a highly competitive field. The team continued their tradition of excellence, maintaining their fourteen-season streak of top three finishes at this meet. Junior Jeanne Spink, freshmen Andrea Parker and Edna Kollartis, and senior Katie Ryan accounted for five performances in the top 40 overall. Gallo also spurred the Wolverines on to a second-place finish at the Notre Dame Invitational, bettering fifteen other squads. Her time of 17:47 was eighth overall. Other notable meets team were the lona Invitational at Bronx, NY, the Miami Invitational in Oxford, Ohio, and the NCAA Regional in Indiana. The Wolverines finished seventh, third, and seventh respectively in these sizable gatherings featuring many schools. Perhaps the most disappointing meet for the team was the Wolverine Invitational, in which respectable individual times were only enough to salvage fourth place out of seven schools. The team ' s most distinguished postseason award went to Katie Jazwinski, who received Michigan ' s Big Ten Conference Medal of Honor, a distinction given to graduating student-athletes with the most notable scholastic and athletic accomplishment. Four other Wolverines, Gallo, Spink, sophomore Katie Easton, and junior Jane Martineau, earned places on the Big Ten Academic All-Conference Team for their fine scholastic achievement.

Amir Qamzu, Athletic Media Relations photo Leading the Pack With experienced runners on its roster, the men ' s cross country team places third at the Big Ten Tournament. By Han-Ching Lin and Kristen Fidh The men ' s cross country team wrapped up a strong season at the Big Ten championships, hosted by Indiana. The Wolverines proudly walked away with a third-place finish, falling short to Wiscon- sin and Ohio State. The Wolverines had proved themselves a team to be reckoned with, displaying the talent of individual runners, as well as a strong " togetherness " . Sophomore Nate Brennen (24:06.1) and freshman Nick Willis (24:15.7) led the Wolverines placing third and seventh, respectively, and also earning All-Big Ten Honors. The two, along with freshman Sean Moore (24:55.7) and sophomore Tarn Leach (25:10.9) all ran personal bests. Despite the loss of two All-Ameri- i - HI -ANENSIAN cans, Mike Wisniewski and Mark Pilja, both of whom were major factors in last season ' s suc- cess, coach Ron Warhurst was still confident that Michigan would be contending in the 2003 NCAA championships. Four Wolverines would be returning with NCAA experience " We lost some of the guys who were able to jump out in front, but this year with the experi- ence we had, we were stronger than a year ago. " Another huge factor contributing to Michigan ' s success was the great attitude each player brought to practice and the meets. School of Art junior Nick Stanko, an expe- rienced member of the team and a valuable player throughout the year, felt that working together was their greatest strength. " The team was most definitely a different team from previous years. The group dynamics of t team was what got us through the season, ai it brought us some high team finishes. Duri: our practices over the years, there have arwf been a few runners who took it upon themselv to separate themselves from the group. TL year, however, everyone felt like a vital part f the group, so there was little to no separati ' i during our practices. This group effort translatl into a race situation in which we were able ' comfortably get out as a team together. " Cc fident that the team would take this into n ; season, Stanko expressed one of the qualit of the team that was helpful to him throughd the season. " Having someone next to me duri: the first few miles of a race who I was comfc able with helped me to perform at my be;
