Eagles ready to take shot at conference titles

The University of Southern Indiana menís and womenís cross country teams are making their final preparations for the GLVC Championships. The Screaming Eagles will compete for the league titles this Saturday, October 25, in Romeoville, Illinois.

The Eagles enter Saturdayís races as favorites to take home both the womenís and menís team championships. In addition, both squads have runners that are expected to compete for an individual conference championship.

Neither team has captured a conference championship since the womenís squad won the GLVC title in 1999. For the men, it has been a much longer drought. The Eagles have not won a team championship in 12 years.

The womenís squad, which is ranked 11th in the nation and fourth in the Great Lakes Region, is led by a trio of runners including senior Jenny Farmer (Princeton, Indiana) and freshman Heather Cooksey (Brownsburg, Indiana).

Farmer, a two-time All-GLVC performer, finished seventh at last yearís GLVC Championships while Cooksey edged Farmer for sixth en route to All-GLVC and GLVC ďFreshman of the YearĒ honors.

Two-time All-GLVC performer, Casey Schneider (New Salisbury, Indiana), has been USIís top finisher at the GLVC Championships each of the last two seasons. She finished third at last seasonís league meet.

The menís squad, which is ranked 13th in the country and fourth in the Great Lakes Region, is led by junior Doug Schwartz (Centralia, Illinois) and sophomore Jesse Davis (Bloomington, Indiana). Schwartz has finished no lower than ninth in any meet this season and won the individual Little State championship at the Indiana Intercollegiate.

Davis has finished in USIís top two in every race he has run in this season. He had a top finish of sixth at the Illinois/Missouri Border Wars.
