The Wisconsin women’s cross country team has excelled as expected in early competition. With a tight grip on the No. 5 spot nationally, the team hopes to push itself as high as possible. It’s not out of the question for Wisconsin to catch Big Ten foe Michigan (No. 2) or reigning national champion Stanford (No. 1). “It’s too early to have expectations,” head coach Jim Stintzi said. “But I’m excited to see how the season unfolds.” Stintzi certainly knows a thing or two about winning. He was a seven-time All-American and six-time Big Ten Champion with the Badgers. After taking home its third-straight Pioneer Invitational two weeks ago, the team looks forward to its next challenge at the Paul Short Invitational Friday at Lehigh in Bethlehem, Pa. “It is my goal to help lead athletes to outstanding success,” Stintzi said.Freshman Cassie Hintz and sophomore Hanna Grinaker (2006 All-America Honors) led the way as they finished first and second respectively in the 5,000-meter course. Freshman Leah Coyle of Middleton, Wis., also placed seventh after winning the UW-Platteville Open Sept. 8. With the underclassmen doing their part to contribute, it has left Stintzi beaming. “Sophomore Hanna Grinaker is filling the role of team leader,” Stintzi said. As the 2006 Big Ten Freshman of the year and All-American status, she will be counted on as a key runner in the Badgers’ success. An exceptional fountain of youth can always be appreciated, especially when its contributions include results in real competition. Because last weekend was only something of a tune-up, the underclassmen’s accomplishments cannot really be gauged yet, but their strong time results are telling and hopefully will improve as the season continues.While this youth movement has certainly thrived, the senior members of the team should not be overlooked. Junior Sarah Hurley, a native of Appleton, Wis., placed third with only 14 seconds separating her and teammate Grinaker in the Carroll College Invitational. Fourth, fifth and sixth place went to senior Amanda Ganser, junior Gwen Jorgensen, and senior-transfer student Kait Hurley, who arrived from William and Mary to join Wisconsin’s squad. Without All-American graduate Katrina Rundhaug, the upperclassmen will need to step up their leadership in order to keep the team focused on success. “The personnel is a little bit different, but the people who were role players last season have gained tons of experience the last couple of years,” Stintzi said.Holding the No. 2 spot in the Great Lakes region, behind No. 1 Michigan and just ahead of No. 3 Michigan State, the struggle within the Big Ten certainly sparks their competitive fire. “Our goal is to return Wisconsin cross country to the top of the Big Ten and be a contender on the national level,” Stintzi said. Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa hold down the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 spots in the Midwest region. With hefty competition, the Badgers will be forced to buckle down as they move in to tougher upcoming tournaments in preparation for the Big Ten Championships, the Great Lakes regional and the NCAA Championships in the coming months.
“He was one of the most underrated players in the history of the game, in my opinion, and one of the greatest Celtic acquisitions of all time,” said former Boston teammate Danny Ainge, now the Celtics’ executive director of basketball operations. Johnson played Toros player Jamar Smith in a game of 1-on-1 after practice and everything seemed normal, player Anthony Fuqua said. “He was being coach Johnson out there talking trash, playing basketball, dribbling around and shooting,” Fuqua said. “Everything seemed fine. We’re all in shock.” Toros spokeswoman Perri Travillion said she was talking with Johnson on the sidewalk outside the building when he collapsed. Johnson was joking about getting a parking ticket. “We were laughing,” she said. “He just collapsed.” AUSTIN, Texas – Dennis Johnson, a standout NBA guard who was part of three championships and teamed with Larry Bird on one of the great postseason plays, died Thursday, collapsing after his developmental team’s practice. He was 52. Johnson, coach of the Austin Toros, was unconscious and in cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived at Austin Convention Center, said Warren Hassinger, spokesman for Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services. Travillion said she called 9-1-1 and that Johnson never regained consciousness. She said Johnson did not appear to have overexerted himself at practice and didn’t complain of any discomfort before he collapsed. Johnson, a five-time All-Star and one of the top defensive guards, was part of the last Boston dynasty. He spent 14 seasons in the league and retired after the 1989-90 season. He played on title teams with the Celtics in 1984 and 1986 and with the Seattle SuperSonics in 1979, when he was the NBA finals MVP. “Whether he was leading his teams to NBA championships or teaching young men the meaning of professionalism, Dennis Johnson’s contributions to the game went far beyond the basketball court,” NBA commissioner David Stern said. “Dennis was a man of extraordinary character with a tremendous passion for the game.” Johnson was a favorite teammate of Bird’s, and the two were part of one of the most memorable plays in Celtics history. During the fifth game of the 1987 Eastern Conference finals against Detroit, Bird stole Isiah Thomas’ inbounds pass under Boston’s basket and fed Johnson, who drove in for the winning layup. Boston won the series in seven games, but lost to the Lakers in the NBA finals. “Dennis was a great player, one of the best teammates I ever had, and a wonderful person,” said Bird, now president of the Indiana Pacers. “My thoughts and condolences are with his family at this difficult time.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
