Duck Men's Cross Country - 2001 Year in Review
The University of Oregon men's cross country squad wrapped up one of its most successful seasons under third-year head coach Martin Smith. The Ducks took 13th in its 27th NCAA Championships appearance since 1963, and third place in the Western Regional and Pacific-10 Championships. Two-time All-American and junior Jason Hartmann (37th in '99, 35th in '00) missed his third All-America honor by barely 10 seconds in the NCAA finale (50th, 30:21). The rest of the seven-man Duck lineup made their NCAA debuts, led by redshirt senior Adam Bergquist (60th, 30:29) who ranked second on the team in the Pac-10 and Regional finales with 11th-place finishes in both. The Duck women missed the NCAA finale for only the third time in head coach's Tom Heinonen 27 years at the helm. The young squad featured no seniors, four juniors and 10 sophomores or freshmen. Redshirt junior Carrie Zografos paced the team in four of five contests, and scored in the other although slowed by sickness. Sophomores Laura Harmon and Magdalena Sandoval and junior Erinn Gulbrandsen split duty in the team's second slot during the year.
LIFE IN A WESTERN TOWN
The Western Regional and the 'Conference of Champions' again laid claim as the most prolific among the NCAA fields with 11 combined M&W team. The NCAA men's field featured six regional and four Pac-10 teams (Stanford (second), Portland (seventh), Oregon (13th), Santa Barbara (17th), Arizona State (20th), and Arizona (21st), and the women's field featured five conference foes (Arizona (fourth), Stanford (fifth), Washington (14th), UCLA (21st) and Arizona State (23rd). In six of the past seven NCAA finales, the men's Western Regional has featured six or more All-Americans, and the 2000 & 2001 NCAA women's fields featured five conference schools, and six in 1999. Altogether in the past 11 NCAA Cross Country Championships, the Pac-10 has featured three team titles (2 men's, 1 women's), three team runners-up (2 men's, 1 women's) and five individual winners (3 men's, 2 women's).
SIZING UP THE DUCK MEN
Two-time All-American and junior Jason Hartmann led the Duck men in all five races in the fall, including third and sixth overall in the Western Regional and Pac-10 Championships, respectively, and 50th in the NCAA finale. Redshirt senior Adam Bergquist smoothly stepped into the Ducks' second slot in the final month of the season in the NCAA Champs (60th), Western Regional (11th) and Pac-10 Champs (11th), and third on the squad time-wise at the Furman Invite, albeit in the open race. Sophomores John Lucas and Brett Holts posted top-25 Pac-10 finishes both in 2001 (17th/21st), and 2000 (18th/19th), and scored in their 2001 NCAA debuts (117th/96th). Fellow sophomore Noel Paulson was also top 25 in 2000 (25th), while his Pac-10 open race time in Arizona was the sixth-fastest of the eight Ducks on the course that day. Redshirt frosh Eric Logsdon scored in three of his final four races of 2001, including his Regional (41st) and NCAA (156th) debuts. Redshirt freshman transfer Ryan Andrus (Orem, Utah/Univ. of Wisconsin) figured as the team's third finisher in three meets in 2001, including top-25 Pac-10 and Western Regional finishes (23rd/27th).
BREAKING DOWN THE WOMEN'S SQUAD
Redshirt junior Carrie Zografos ranked as the team's most improved and led the squad in four of her five races in 2001 - the Sundodger Invite (seventh), Roy Griak Invite (99th), Furman Invite (75th) and Pac-10 Champs (35th). Sophomore Laura Harmon led the squad in the Western Regional (45th), and ranked second in the first two races of 2001 and fifth in the remaining two meets due to illness. Junior Erinn Gulbrandsen was among the squad's top four in every race, including four stops in the top three. Sophomore Annette Mosey scored in five of her six races in her first varsity harrier season. Redshirt sophomore Alicia Snyder-Carlson made her varsity cross country debut and scored twice and ran in the team's top seven in all five appearances. Among the team's top newcomers, sophomore Magdalena Sandoval (Rice University/Los Alamos, N.M.) finished among the team's top four in all five races in 2001 - including second twice. Freshman Sara Schaaf (Klamath Falls) scored once before missing the season finale because of a stress fracture.
IN THE POLLS
The Men of Oregon finished the year ranked 14th in the final coaches poll prior to the NCAA Championships. They opened the season 13th in the preseason poll, dropped to 16th in the second week's coaches poll, 18th in the next two editions, 20th prior to the Pac-10 Champs, and 18th before Regionals. The Oregon women were unranked in all seven versions.
DUCK NCAA HISTORY
Although the tradition of great Duck distance runners goes back to Bill Dellinger's and Jim Bailey's arrival in the mid '50s, former Oregon mentor Bill Bowerman never took his 'Men of Oregon' to the NCAA Championships until 1963. That first squad finished second with 68 points behind San Jose State (53), one of 15 top-three UO finishes (four wins, seven runner-up honors, and four third-place finishes). With the four team titles under Dellinger's guidance as a coach (1971-73-74-77), only Arkansas (11) and UTEP (9) have won more since 1963, and Villanova also won four during that period. Individually, thanks to three NCAA titles by Steve Prefontaine (1970-71-73) and another by Alberto Salazar (1978), only one school has won more individual titles in that span (Washington State, seven).
A pair of heralded freshmen arrived in Eugene in the fall of 2001 -- freshmen Seth Pilkington and Erik Heinonen -- after taking fifth and sixth in the 2000 FootLocker Cross Country Championships, the national prep championship. On the track in 2001, the son of former L.A. Marathon winner Paul Pilkington ranked third nationally in the 3,200 (8:55.17) and was a prep All-American. Heinonen paced the national prep list in the 10,000 (31:26.05), but redshirted the 2001 season. Two other redshirt freshmen have played big roles in their first fall seasons as Ducks. Redshirt freshman transfer Ryan Andrus missed his 1997 freshman harrier season at Wisconsin due to a stress fracture, followed by a two-year religious mission in Mexico. Andrus clocked 3:46.5 and 14:11.8 as a freshman in 1998, and that summer finished second in the 5K in the U.S. Junior Championships to qualify for the 1998 World Junior Championships. Redshirt frosh Eric Logsdon took third in the 1999 Oregon 4A state harrier champs as a senior, but was better known for his national-caliber marks in the 1,500 (3:51.39), 3K (8:10.66) and 3,200 (8:47.88) as a prep senior in the spring of 2000. On the women's side, freshman Sara Schaaf of Klamath Falls stood as the team's top middle-distance signee after winning the 2001 4A state title in the 800 (2:13.38). Sophomore Magdalena Sandoval transferred from Rice University after scoring for the Owls in her debut in the 2000 NCAA South Central Regional (44th overall). The daughter of 1980 U.S. Olympic Trials marathon champ Tony Sandoval was previously a New Mexico state class C champion in the 1,600 and 3,200 meters for Los Alamos High School.
During the regular season, the Duck men piled up 14 head-to-head wins against other NCAA qualifiers from across the nation to help their qualifying cause for the NCAA Championships - Air Force, Alabama, Arizona, Arizona State, Butler, Colorado State, Dartmouth, Georgetown, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Santa Barbara, Tennessee, William & Mary. Although the Duck women failed to qualify in 2001, the did utilize the at-large route in 2000 after a fourth-place regional finish and previous regular season wins against five fellow NCAA qualifiers - Marquette, North Carolina, South Florida, Wake Forest and Weber State.
No university boasts a combined history as rich as the Oregon men's and women's programs. Dating back to All-American Steve Prefontaine in 1969, 18 men's runners have finished among the top five in the NCAA meet - the most recent being Steve Fein (third in '99). The list of Oregon greats includes such legends as American track record holders 'Pre', Alberto Salazar, Rudy Chapa and Matt Centrowitz. On the women's side, Oregon has qualified as a team in 24 of 27 NCAA meets since 1975 and has finished in the top 10 in all but five appearances. University of Oregon women have garnered 30 All-America honors and have included such greats as Marie Davis, Melody Fairchild, Kathy Hayes, Lisa Ondieki, and Annette Peters.
AT THE HELM
Completing his third season as men's cross country head coach, Martin Smith has solidified Oregon as one of nation's preeminent programs. In his first season as cross country head coach in 1999, he guided Oregon to a sixth-place NCAA harrier finish - its 24th top-10 national placing, while Ducks have garnered 15 All-America honors in track and cross country in his first three seasons in Eugene. Previously, the two-time NCAA Men's Cross Country Coach of the Year (1985 & 88) led Wisconsin harrier squads to two NCAA titles, nine top-five finishes, and top-14 finishes in each of his 15 years in Madison. On the individual side, his Badger cross country athletes won one NCAA title and 34 All-America awards, to go with five NCAA titles and 44 All-America honors on the track. His harrier All-America tally during that period trailed only Arkansas, and even bettered the Hogs' tally counting only U.S. athletes. On the women's side, 27th-year head coach Tom Heinonen has also been honored as NCAA Coach of the Year for each of Oregon's NCAA two cross country and one track and field team titles, and has directed the Ducks to the collegiate harrier finale 24 times. Individually, his distance pupils have scored 30 All-America honors in cross country and 53 awards on the track. In conference competition the Ducks have historically paced 'The Conference of Champions' as his teams have won seven of 16 Pac-10 team titles and six individual crowns since the league's inception in 1986 - also garnering him six Pac-10 Coach-of-the-Year honors.
SCORING THE RACE
Cross country races are scored by adding together the places of each seven-person team's top five finishers, with the lowest score winning. A perfect score would be 15 points (1+2+3+4+5), although scores in larger meets such as the NCAA Championships are much higher because of the larger number of teams on hand (i.e. 50-100+ points). In the NCAA Championships or other regular season invitationals where some individuals compete apart from teams, their places are not counted in the team scoring (i.e. a runner who finished 49th overall but was beaten by two individuals not affiliated with teams would be scored 47th in the team scoring).
All-America honors are awarded based on NCAA Championships finishes. The top 30 finishers from both the men's and women's races, regardless of citizenship, are honored by the U.S. Cross Country Coaches Association, along with any additional finishers that are among the top 30 U.S. finishers. Often the award will extend to Americans in the 40th-50th range on the men's side, and 35th-40th on the women's side.
2001 Duck Year in Review
PORTLAND, Ore. - A Duck men's 'B' unit opened the season barely a week before classes started with wins over a Portland 'B' squad, 20-36, and Portland State, 15-47. Sophomore Noel Paulson claimed the first collegiate win of his career (18:27), just ahead of sophomore teammate John Lucas (second, 18:30) and Portland's Steve Schaeffer (third, 18:35).

ST. PAUL, Minn. - On the first day of the official NCAA at-large qualifying portion of the season, the then-No. 16 UO men finished 11th in the 36-team field with a score of 326 points, while Wisconsin won the team race with 129 points. Wisconsin freshman Matt Tegenkamp won the individual title, covering the 8K distance on the University of Minnesota's Les Bolstad Cross Country Course in 23:58.0.

GREENVILLE, S.C. - The Duck squads faced another national caliber field in the annual pre-NCAA Invitational and site of this year's NCAA Championships, although the men's and women's races were split in half to accommodate the +70 teams in each field. The then-No. 18-ranked Duck men scored 233 points to finish fifth in the 35-team black race, and ahead of then-No.-16 Michigan State and then-No. 11 Colorado State, who were ranked ahead of them in the prior national polls. All-America junior Jason Hartmann led Oregon individuals with a 17th-place finish (25:03), and was followed by sophomore John Lucas (37th, 25:25), freshman Ryan Andrus (41st, 25:28), and sophomores Brett Holts (65th, 25:52), Eric Logsdon (73th, 25:58) and Noel Paulson (88th, 26:07). Stanford won the team title with 56 points, and Alabama junior David Kimani won the individual title (8K-24:06). In the other men's race, top-ranked Colorado won the team title with 62 points, and individually Eastern Michigan's Boaz Cheboiywo (first, 23:31) broke the course record of Colorado's Adam Goucher from 1997 by almost 30 seconds. The Duck women finished 26th in the 34-team purple race, as Georgetown won the team title with 48 points. Colorado's Molly Austin won the 6K individual title (20:48). Junior Carrie Zografos led UO (75th, 22:45), and was followed by sophomore Magdalena Sandoval (133th, 23:30), junior Erinn Gulbrandsen (150th, 23:42), sophomores Annette Mosey (156th, 23:52) and Laura Harmon (173rd, 24:04), and freshman Sara Schaaf (188th, 24:29). In the women's silver race, Stanford won with 72 points, and individual honors went to Sabrina Monro of Washington (20:26).
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Facing temperatures in the upper 80s at Pavilion Lakes Golf Course near Tempe, the No. 20-ranked Duck men took third with 78 points in the eight-team men's race, narrowly trailing No. 19 Arizona State (second, 75) and No. 2 Stanford (first, 27). Oregon edged two top-25 teams - No. 13 Arizona (fourth, 96) and No. 24 Washington (fifth, 102) - along with UCLA (sixth, 148), Washington State (seventh, 163) and California (eighth, 192). Individually, junior Jason Hartmann recovered from a hard fall in the fourth mile to lead the Duck men. Ranking approximately fifth when he was tangled up with a Stanford runner, the Rockford, Mich., got up slowly, and eventually moved back up to sixth in the finish of the 8K race (24:30.9). The remaining five Duck finishers all finished top-30, including a breakthrough performance by redshirt senior Adam Bergquist (11th, 25:00.4), followed by sophomores John Lucas (17th, 25:10.0) and Brett Holts (21st, 25:17.2), and redshirt freshmen Ryan Andrus (23rd, 25:23.8) and Eric Logsdon (30th, 25:50.1). The other entrant, freshman Seth Pilkington, dropped out in the first half of the race. Stanford junior Grant Robison captured the individual title (24:04.0), ahead of Arizona State's Fasil Bizuneh (24:06.4). The Duck women finished eighth overall with 210 points in the nine-team field. No. 1 Stanford won the competition with 27 points, followed by a topsy-turvy order of No. 11 Arizona (second, 64), No. 7 Arizona State (third, 79), No. 22 UCLA (fourth, 54), and No. 13 Washington (fifth 109). Redshirt junior Carrie Zografos (35th, 22:58.8) paced a UO scoring unit that was separated by 41 only seconds that included sophomore Magdalena Sandoval (37th, 23:06.9), junior Erinn Gulbrandsen (44th, 23:32.6), sophomores Annette Mosey (46th, 23:34.2) and Laura Harmon (48th, 23:39.7). Other UO finishers included freshman Sara Schaaf (56th, 25:05.1) and redshirt sophomore Alicia Snyder-Carlson (60th, 26:20.5). Stanford junior Lauren Fleshman ran away with the individual win on the 6K course (20:08.1), ahead of freshman teammate Sara Bei (second, 20:17.4).
TUCSON, Ariz. - The Duck M&W took third and 12th, respectively, against the West Coast's best on the University of Arizona's Dell Urich Golf Course. Against a 20-team men's field featuring seven, top-30 teams, No. 18 Oregon's 112-point score edged No. 14 Arizona State (fourth, 116), No. 13 Santa Barbara (fifth, 124), No. 20 Arizona (sixth, 135) and No. 28 Washington (seventh, 140). No. 2 Stanford won the team title with 37 points, ahead of No. 8 Portland (second, 91). Two-time All-American and junior Jason Hartmann turned an impressive finish (third, 30:57.6), not far behind Stanford's Donald Sage (first, 30:43.4) and Grant Robison (second, 30:50.1). The Duck men put their four remaining scorers, and their sixth runner, in the top 50 overall. Redshirt senior Adam Bergquist duplicated his 11th-place Pac-10 finish against an even stronger field (31:30.8), and redshirt freshman Ryan Andrus placed third on the squad for the third time in four meets (27th, 30:06.2). The remaining Duck entries included sophomore Brett Holts (31st, 32:12.7), redshirt freshman Eric Logsdon (42nd, 32:40.1), and sophomores Noel Paulson (49th, 32:52.7) and John Lucas (55th, 33:06.5). The UO women's season came to an end with a 12th-place regional finish as the Ducks tallied 350 points in the 23-team race. No. 1 Stanford won the competition with 39 points, ahead of No. 8 Arizona (second, 81), No. 11 Arizona State (third, 85), No. 24 Washington (fourth, 118) and No. 17 UCLA (fifth, 164). Sophomore Laura Harmon led Oregon for the first time in her career as the Vancouver, Wash., native took 45th overall (23:07.1). Junior Erinn Gulbrandsen also claimed her highest finish ever on the squad, ranking second among Oregon's six entries and 75th overall (23:59.5), with other scoring added by sophomores Magdalena Sandoval (78th, 24:03.7) and Annette Mosey (81st, 24:07.20) and redshirt junior Carrie Zografos (97th, 24:25.8). Redshirt sophomore Alicia Snyder-Carlson (125th, 25:07.5) was one of three Ducks making their regional debuts with Sandoval and Mosey.
GREENVILLE, S.C. - The No. 14-ranked Duck men saved its best race for last, finishing 13th with 389 points in the 31-team, 255-runner NCAA Championships. Junior Jason Hartmann fell barely 10 seconds shy of his third All-America honor, finishing 50th overall in the 10K race (30:21). The Rockford, Mich., native ran most of the race near his final placing on the fast University of Furman Cross Country Course. In previous NCAA Championships, Hartmann finished 37th as a freshman in 1999 (and tops among American frosh) and 35th as a sophomore in 2000. The other six Ducks on hand made their NCAA debuts, led by redshirt senior Adam Bergquist (60th, 30:29), who opened the race in the top 80 overall, and moved up progressively during the race, including a strong final kilometer surge. Other Duck finishers included sophomore Brett Holts (96th, 30:58), redshirt sophomore John Lucas (117th, 31:09), redshirt freshman Eric Logsdon (156th, 31:32), sophomore Noel Paulson (176th, 31:48) and redshirt freshman Ryan Andrus (236th, 33:13). The Ducks' effort capped a season in which they gained momentum in every race. After a 11th-place finish in the Roy Griak Invite at September's end, the squad improved to fifth in their pre-NCAA Furman Invitational section, and third in both the Pac-10 Championships and Western Regional. Oregon's 13th-place team finish marked its 27th top-15 NCAA Championships effort since its first trip in 1963, and also the third-year head coach Martin Smith's 17th honor in his 18 combined seasons at Oregon and Wisconsin. Overall, Eastern Michigan newcomer Boaz Cheboiywo escaped the field in the first kilometer en route to a comfortable 19-second victory over Colorado's Jorge Torres (second, 29:06). Cheboiywo, who rocketed out to a 4:24 first mile, clocked an 8K his split of 23:01 that was 28 seconds faster than his October mark in another Furman-hosted race (albeit on a slightly less challenging version). At the finish, the Kenyan transplant still showed little sign of a recent hip and Achilles injury, posting a seven-second course record over Mebrahtom Kefelzighi's NCAA winning time from 1997. Team-wise, No. 1 Colorado relied on a late surge by its fourth and fifth runners to tie the closest win in meet history. Its 90 points narrowly separated itself from Stanford (second, 91) and No. 3 Arkansas (third, 118). Individually for the women, Arizona's Tara Chaplin pushed out to a 5:10 first mile and 20-meter lead on the field, before North Carolina's Shalane Flanagan passed her on a long gradual uphill in the fourth kilometer. The Wildcat senior retook the lead en route to the win (20:24) on a downhill in the fifth kilometer, passing the exhausted Blue Devil sophomore who was walking up a hill. Georgia Tech's Renee Metivier surged for second overall (20:31), ahead of Stanford's Lauren Fleshman (third, 20:35). No. 2-ranked BYU was only four points away with from tying the biggest margins of victory ever, edging No. 5 N.C. State by 86 points (second, 148), No. 3 Georgetown (third, 180) and No. 23 Arizona (fourth, 194).
