Women Of Troy Cross Country Season In Review

Jan. 24, 2001

The 2000 USC women's cross country team could best be summed up in one word: youth.

Every athlete that the Women of Troy took with them to the Pac-10 Championships in Seattle, Wash., was either a freshman, a sophomore, or in their first year with the squad.

Sophomore team captain Brooke Thomas had a breakout year, leading USC to eighth place in what is generally considered to be the the top cross country conference in the nation (four of the top eight teams in the nation were from the Pac-10).

Freshman Aleksandra Darren, who specializes in the 800m for the track team, was a pleasant suprise for USC, finishing in 27th in Seattle, followed by Thomas in 29th.

With the addition of freshman Lucyna Ligaj, 2001 looks to be a much improved year for the Women of Troy.
