Transcript Up and over; this pole-vaulter is poised for victory at one of the UH track and field meets. A Rebuilding Season The school year 1987-88 was one for rebuilding. UH athletics and the cross country program was no exception, as inexperience and lack of athletes led to a down year for the Cougar Cross Country team. Men's Team The men's team started off the year with a bang as the squad took first place at the Texas A&M Invitational. The Coog trio of Jim Thorpe, Ralph Perri and Jeff Davis garnered a 1, 2, 3 finish at the meet in leading the team to victory. "The men did fine this year," Track Coach Tom Tellez said. "They were just so inexperienced as there was not a senior on the entire team." After winning the first meet, the Cougars became inconsistent and finished from third to last the rest of the season. After showing promise by placing fourth among 29 teams at the Lehigh Invitational, the squad floundered at their own UH Tri-Meet by finishing last. The team completed the year by placing fourth at the Southwest Conference Championships and fourth at the NCAA Region 6 Championships. "The kids did a good job, they are going to improve," Tellez said, "the number of athletes was just not enough this year." Women's Team The women's team did not get off to a quick start like their male counterparts, but they did manage to finish from first to fifth in the meets they competed in. The team grabbed a second place finish at both the Texas A&M Invitational and the Lori Fitzgerald Memorial (El Paso) meets and proceeded to take third at the University of Texas at San Antonio Meet. The Cougars then hosted the UH Quad Meet and won the event to highlight the year. The team wound up the year by finishing fourth at the Southwest Conference Meet and fifth at the NCAA Region VI Championships. "The women had a small team (nine members)," Tellez said. "But they did an excellent job with what they had." — Mike De La Cruz Sports 159
