Zimmer runs for self,
excels for Nebraska
PRESSURE from page 7
“I decided either I’m not going to
run anymore, or I’m just going to run
for myself,” Zimmer said. “I didn’t
listen to what everyone was saying,
and I think that was a lot healthier.”
A freshman again, this time on
the Nebraska women’s cross coun
try team, Zimmer vows she will not
let other people’s expectations
affect her and her running abilities.
Zimmer said she learned during
her sophomore year of high school
that the past cannot repeat itself.
“My sophomore year was a bad
year,” Zimmer said. “People expect
ed all of these great things from me,
and I couldn’t deal with that”
And even though Zimmer does
n’t want to deal with people’s expec
tations while at NU, she knows
those expectations are part of being
a collegiate athlete.
“Jeannette is pretty advanced
for a freshman,” NU Cross Country
Coach Jay Dirksen said. “She has
made a good transition to college
That easy transition has helped

Comhusker. She led the Husker
women in each of those meets and

Zimmer said she already is facing
But this time, Zimmer is pre
pared for those expectations.
“I let people have the expecta
tions they are going to have,”
Zimmer said. “But I’m just going to
run for myself and see what hap
“In the past, expectations meant
everything to me. Now, they don’t
mean a lot”
Dirksen said Zimmer possesses
a strong work ethic and shows self
discipline. He knows her will and
dedication will help her deal with
the pressures of collegiate athletics.
“Jeannette shows a lot of com
mitment in whatever she does,”
Diiksen said. “She has adjusted to
Zimmer is confident too. She
knows she has learned how to deal
“I do things for myself now,”
Zimmer said. “%u can’t expect the
past to repeat itself. It’s never going
to happen. You have to create things
