Runners start season
By Brandon Schulte
Looking to improve on last
year’s NCAA Championship
appearance, the Nebraska men’s and
_ women’s cross
kick off the
weekend at the
Plocoip V> £»1 H
W*fc*®* by Northwest
Missouri State, features NAIA and
Division II schools from the
Coach Jay Dirksen said he sees
the race as a good tune-up for the
team, which has a grueling schedule
Three of the top five men and
five of the top six women will be
held out of this weekend’s competi
tion in order for the team to be ready
for the Woody Greeno Invitational
at Pioneers Park Sept. 19.
The absence of these runners
will allow for some of the younger
team members to get their first taste
of collegiate-level cross country.
I was injured for the past six months,
and I’m ready to get back
out there and run.”
NU cross country runner
“This weekend we’re just trying
to see where we are, and see how the
younger runners perform,” Dirksen
Some of the runners expected to
step up this week for the women’s
team are two-time letter winner
Melinda Mohr, a junior, and fresh
man Jeanette Zimmer.
Men expected to run well
include All-American sophomore
Jeroen Broekzitter and sophomore
Broekzitter is considered the top
runner on the team and one of the
best in the Big 12.
Last season, Broekzitter fin
ished /20th at the NCAA
Championships, the highest finish
of any freshman in the competition.
Broekzitter also finished sixth at the
Big 12 Conference Championships.
“I’m looking forward to this
race as much as any other race,”
Broekzitter said. “I was injured for
the past six months, and I’m ready
to get back out there and run.”
Mohr, the most experienced run
ner participating in the tournament,
is hoping her experience and leader
ship will help her young teammates
“I have the most experience,”
Mohr said, “and since it’s not a race
that is important to be competitive
in I’ll help a few freshmen out —
show them the ropes.”
By participating in the Bearcat
Classic, the Cornhuskers were
allowed to start practice before
school started, Dirksen hopes this
extra practice will help the team
down the road at the Big 12
Championships to qualify for the
“Hopefully it should be a good
start for the season,” Mohr said,
“with the best yet to come.”
Hingis wins at U.S. Open
■U.S. Open players
Hingis and Rosset, both
of Switzerland, express
grief and fear after crash
of Swissair Flight 111.
NEW YORK (AP) - Winning was
an afterthought for Martina Hingis as
she moved one step closer to success
fully defending her U.S. Open title
Thursday. Her thoughts were domi
nated by the nature of tragedy.
Hingis moved into the third round
with a 7-6 (7-4), 6-0 win over Iva
Majoli a few hours after hearing
about the crash of Swissair Flight 111
off the Canadian coast, killing all 229
people on board.
Hingis, a national heroine in
Switzerland, said she knows many
Swissair flight attendants.
“It was terrible to hear it,” Hingis
said. “It’s the airplane I fly die most.
When I heard, I was like, ‘No way.
Swissair seems very safe.’ It’s terrible
to know you don’t have any chance
Marc Rosset, the top Swiss male
player, had been set to return to
Geneva on Flight 111 Wednesday
night after losing in the first round at
the U.S. Open. Instead, he stayed an
extra day to practice with players still
in the tourney.
“It was a strange feeling when
you know — you just realize - that for
just changing your mind, you are still
alive,” he said. “I think I am a little
afraid, when you realize you were
close to dying.”
Joining Hingis in the third round
were No. 2 Lindsay Davenport, No. 4
Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, No. 5
Venus Williams and No. 13 Amanda
Williams served at up to 117 mph
while winning 6-1,6-3 over qualifier
Anne Kremer, a Stanford student.
Hingis was inconsistent in the
first set, bringing back memories of
her loss to Majoli in the 1997 French
“I was very nervous in the begin
ning,” Hingis said. “It was very
strange coming .from last night not
having played and having to play the
Majoli was the aggressor in the
first set, moving Hingis from side to
side and slamming groundstrokes
past the defending champion. Hingis
sighed loudly in exasperation as she
netted a forehand late in the first set,
and her soft second serve was pum
meled by Majoli.
After taking 45 minutes to win
the first set, Hingis swept through the
second set in 20 minutes.
“I loosened up and everything
started to go in,” Hingis said, “I was
strong and I didn’t let her back in the
