    Top ranked Cougs fight injuries
By Doug Vaughan
Of The Print
Carrying in a pre-season
ranking of first in the nation,
the College men’s cross coun­
try team swept the University of
Portland Invitational for the first
time in the College’s history.
Pacing the way for the
Cougars was sophomore All-
American candidate Tony
Macey, who set a new course
record of 23:17. Also con­
tributing a strong leg was se­
cond year man Steve Gogl,
who placed sixth in the 87
against the Cougars were Lin­
field, Lewis and Clark, Pacific
Lutheran, University of Peuget
Sound, University of Portland,
and three track clubs consisting
of college graduates.
The main ingredients
helping the Cougars obtain the
number one ranking are their
fourth place finish in Nationals
last year, and regional and con­
ference championships in the
past two year.
At the helm for the
Cougars is third year Coach,
Kelly Sullivan, who feels very
confident about his club.
“If we are injury-free, I
honestly believe we can win the
¡National championship,”
boasted Sullivan. “We have
great team unity. I find less
pressure on myself to do that
: (create team unity); they-are do
ing it as a group.”
The only problem that has
hit the Cougars early in the
season is injuries. The Cougars
have run without Ken Velas­
quez, their number two runner
from last vear. and All-
American candidate. Injuries
have also hampered key run­
ners like Gogl, who was im­
pressive in the University of
Portland' Invitational.
with an ankle injury, has not
competed since he injured his
ankle, but he seems very op­
timistic even though he has
missed workouts.
“I will have to see how it
affects me in our next meet
before it starts to affect me
mentally,” Gogl stated. Conti­
nuing on how the team has
responded to the injuries he ex­
plained, “It is better to have
them now than in the end. I am
sure everyone will be healthy
when it comes time.”
One of the major
challenges that the Cougars are
faced with this year is the ex­
traordinary strength of their
conference. Sullivan feels that
it is the toughest in the nation.
Reasons for his belief are that
Southern Idaho (ranked third,
nationally), Lane Community
College (ranked sixth), and
Northern Idaho (a top ten con­
tender) are all opponents that
the Cougars face in conference
One of the most im­
pressive runners on the squad
according to Sullivan is Macey,
who is believed to be one of the
best distance runners in col­
legiate competition and a top
recruit for major college next
Macey sees repeating as
an All-American as a personal
goal for this season and he
would like to see his team earn
the National Championship.
“We have a good chance, but
we have to pull together as a
team, become more team
oriented,” commented the priz­
ed distance runner.
In the most recent meet,
Oct. 2 in Seattle, Wash., the
Cougars competed against 25
teams, placing fourth. Leading
the way through the 10,000

meter race for the team was
Macey who broke a school
record, Macey was the top
junior college finisher and
finished third overall. The only
teams to outrun the Cougars
were Evergreen Track Club,
Western Washington Universi­
ty, and Club Northwest.
Sullivan, who has a confi­
dent outlook for his club, ex­
plained, “Last year our goal
was to finish in the top five.
This year I don’t think we will
be satisfied until we win the Na­
tional Championship.”
