Witter second at Woody Greeno
Nebraska’s Marcus Witter sprinted
towards the red, orange and blue flags
that led die way to the finish line at die
Woody Greeno/Nebraska Invitational
with Kansas State’s Brandon Jessop.
Jessop beat his former high school
teammate Witter by seven-tenths of a
second, but Witter wasn’t disappointed.
And neither was NU Cross Country
Coach Jay Dirksen.
“Marcus has shown phenomenal
improvement from last year,” Dirksen
said. Improvements like Witter’s,
Dirksen said, were the key to the
Comhuskers’ success Saturday and will
determine how well Nebraska competes
for the rest of its season.
“For cross country, compared to
other sports, constant improvement is
what matters,” Dirksen said. “You have
to keep getting better for when it really
matters - at conference time.”
TheNU women came away with the
victory in the 5,000-meter race at
Pioneers Park with 44 points. Texas was
second with 50 and Kansas State fin
ished third with 72. Former NU runner
Fran ten Bensel, who ran unattached,
won the race in 17:27.40.
In the men’s 8,000-meter run, NU
earned second-place honors with a 58
behind first-place Texas. The Blue River
Track Club from Lincoln placed third
with 59 points. The Huskers finished
without their No. 1 runner Jeroen
Broekzitter, who went down shortly
after the 5,000-meter mark with a
strained hamstring. He was leading
when he left the race.
For the Huskers, Witter finished
second with a time of 25 minutes, 32.9
seconds. Junior Tony Smith was 11th
with a 26:30.00, and sophomore Todd
Tripple finished 17th with a 26:46.20.
“Marcus (Witter) really stepped it
up after Jeroen went down,” Tripple
said. “He’s got guts and has really
The Nebraska women’s team came
away with the victory after all of NU’s
top-five women finished in the top 20.
Freshman Jeanette Zimmer led the
Huskers as she finished third with an
18:07.70. Sophomore Amy Wiseman
came in next for Nebraska with a fifth
place finish time of 18:19.00. Jamie
Pauli was 12th with an 18:48.70.
“I was surprised Jeanette beat Amy,”
Dirksen said. “It was a nice surprise,
though. I think they both went out hard,
and Amy tried to stay with Fran ten
Benstel and just got tired.”

Brandon Jessop battle for the lead
at the Woody Greeno Invitational.
Dirksen said he was surprised by
how some of the teams ran.
“Texas ran well,” Dirksen said. “I
thought Oklahoma State would have ran
better, but they weren’t really in it
“On both sides, men’s and women’s,
we are going to be facing some tough
competition this year. We have to keep
getting better to keep up with the other
Golf lineup strong for upcoming tourney
By John Gaskins
After his team’s impressive perfor
mance in last week’s season-opening
tournament, Nebraska men’s golf
Coach Larry Romjue has one goal in
mind for this week’s tourney and the rest
of the season
The Huskers will try to do just that
as they take on a competitive field that
includes six other Big 12 Conference
teams in the Kansas Invitational at the
par-72 Alvamar Golf Course in
Lawrence, on Monday and Tuesday.
NU is coming off last week’s third
place finish at the Falcon-Cross Creek
Invitational in Colorado, where the
team shot a 5-under-par 859, which was
solid play but not enough to beat tourna
ment winner California
“We played well and put up a good
score,” Romjue said. “But we didn’t
reach our objective, which is to win.”
With a crop of four experienced
golfers, and three others batfling for the
fifth spot on the team, the motivation to
win certainly won’t be lacking.
Senior Steve Friesen is one of the
hottest golfers in the nation, coming off
of the third win of his collegiate career
at the Falcon. The senior fired a 7
under-par 209 and is expected to go low
this week and all season.
“Steve’s been playing some incredi
ble golf the last couple years,” Romjue
said. “He has the mindset to shoot low
scores and knows he can do it”
Behind Friesen are seasoned veter
ans Josh Madden, who tied for fifth last
week, Scott Gutschewski and Jamie
Rogers. Romjue said Friesen’s perfor
mance has rubbed off on the other play
ers and kept them competitive.
“They’re all solid players,” Romjue
said. “Jamie was our No. 1 player last
year, and I think Steve being No. 1 this
year has motivated Jamie to get back
Competition also is heating up for
the team’s fifth starter. Fifth-year
seniors Ryan Nietfeldt and Judd Brewer
and freshman Seth Porter are battling
for die position.
After playing Nietfeldt in Colorado,
Romjue will replace him with Porter in

Huskers fall to Bruins,
shut out Women of Troy
SOCCER from page 7
because starting goalie Karina LeBlanc
was red carded in Friday’s loss for
catching the ball 20 yards outside the
penalty box. A red card brings an auto
matic suspension for the next game.
With Anderson in goal, Walker said
the defenders stepped up.
“Meghan Anderson, Sharolta
Nonen and Christine Gluck all played
tremendously well in the back,” Waiker
He also commended Becky Hogan
for marking USC forward Isabelle
Harvey one-on-one. Harvey, who
played on the Canadian national team,
had scored two goals in the Women of
Troy’s first four games.
Senior striker Kim Engesser got the
Huskers (3-2) on the board, scoring 14
minutes into the game. Sophomore
Lauren Tatum scored the second goal in
the 67* minute off assists from Hogan

and Kelly Rheem.
Walker called Friday’s game one of
the strangest ones he has seen.
The Huskers allowed just two shot
attempts in the first half, but both of
them went in for goals.
Trailing 2-0 at half-time, NU had to
take more chances in the second half,
Walker said, leaving the defense vul
LeBlane’s red card, with 25 minutes
left in the game and NU trailing 3-1,
was too much for the Huskers to over
Walker said despite the split, the
weekend games would benefit the
Huskers later in the year.
“We learned we need total concen
tration from everyone,” he said.
