Men’s Track

The distance runners on the Wisconsin men’s track team spent the last two days competing at the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif.

On Friday, Nick Winkel finished 13th in the 10,000 meters in a provisional qualifying mark of 29:01.39. His time just missed the automatic qualifying mark by 1.39 seconds.

Drew Hohensee finished sixth in the third section of the 5000 meters in 14:27.72, while Ryan Cole was 24th in the same heat in 14:52.19.

On Saturday, Josh Spiker finished fourth in the men’s 1500 meters in a provisional qualifying time of 3:42.92. His time was also a personal best and ranks him ninth on UW’s all-time list.

Isaiah Festa finished 31st in the 1500 meters in 3:52.89.

Gainesville, Fla. — Freshman Alonzo Moore finished third in the invitational triple jump to lead the Wisconsin men’s track and field team on the final day of the Florida Relays.

Moore jumped 51-9 to finish third behind Aarik Wilson of Indiana, who won with a leap of 53-3 3?4.

Wisconsin also placed in the 4 x 100-meter relay, finishing sixth in 40.71 and in the 4 x 400-meter relay, crossing in 3:11.91, good for seventh place. The Badgers 4 x 110-meter shuttle hurdle relay finished fourth in 59.05.

Swimming: The No. 17 Wisconsin men’s swimming and diving team closed out its 2001-02 season Saturday with an 18th-place finish at the NCAA championship in Athens, Ga. The finish equals last year’s place, which was the Badgers’ highest finish since placing 18th in 1976.

“Overall I was very pleased with the effort put forth by our men at the NCAA championship,” coach Eric Hansen said. “They added to our best year yet as an entire team — for both men and women — and we look to build on that.”

Unable to put points on the board Saturday, the Badgers totaled 41.5 points in two days. It is the second highest point total in school history, behind last year’s 43 points.

Senior Lance Jones competed in the 200 breaststroke and sophomore Dale Rogers swam in the 100 free Saturday, but neither swimmer advanced to the point-scoring finals. The UW 400 free relay team also missed the finals, finishing 18th in the morning prelims.

Senior co-captains Brendan Coyne and Jones close out their UW careers as All-Americans and school record holders, while sophomore All-Americans Matt Marshall and Rogers look to lead the Badgers next season.

“We’ll miss our senior leadership in Brendan and Lance,” Hansen said. “They set an amazing precedent.”

Men’s golf: The Wisconsin men’s golf team finished the Johnny Owens Invitational Saturday in a tie for 14th place. Big Ten conference rival Purdue grabbed first place in the 18-team invite, while host Kentucky finished in second.

The Badgers fired a 295 and a 298 on day two of the three-round tournament, finishing with 893. Wisconsin tied Notre Dame, which fired a 306-295-292, in the final team standings.

Junior Jon Turcott led the Badgers on the individual board with a three-over par 216, good for T13th overall. Turcott shot a 68 in the second round and carded a 75 in the invite’s final round.
