1990 Women's Roster

Women's cross country takes ninth at national meet

The Cobber women's cross country team completed a dream season by winning a league championship at the MIAC meet on Oct.27, taking second at the NCAA regional on Nov.10, and placing ninth at the NCAA Dlvision III national championship in Grinnell, Iowa, Nov.17.

An all-senior lineup, led by Chris Fredrick, Foley, Minn., the MIAC individual champion, captured the first-ever Cobber MIAC cross country titje. Sharon Espeland, Bismarck, N.D.; Molly Weyrens, St. Cloud, Minn.; and Peggy Savanick, Apple Valley, Minn., finished fourth, fifth and ninth respectively at the MIAC meet and earned all-MIAC honors in the process. Chris Godfrey, Duluth, Minn., finished 24th in the field of 124 runners and was the final Cobber scorer. The Cobbers edged St. Thomas 43-47 for the team title, the first time the Tommies had been beaten in the 10 years the MIAC has been sponsoring a women's cross country championship.

Fredrick placed 25th at the national meet, earning her third all-America award in two years. She was an indoor track all-American last winter in the 1,500-meter run and an indoor track all-American in the 800 meter in 1989

The talented seniors on the women's cross country team are also among the finest students on campus. All five scorers at the MIAC and national meets have also been nominated for academic all-MIAC honors. Here's why: Chris Fredrick, English writing, 3.77; Molly Weyrens, corporate fitness, English, 3.57; Sharon Espeland, social studies education, 3.70; Peggy Savanick, biology, education, 3.82; Chris Godfrey, biology, 3.77

It is small wonder that secondyear coach Marion Strand becomes a little misty-eyed when she thinks of having to replace these model student-athletes next fall.
