Lo­bos take an­other run in Wis­con­sin

Albuquerque Journal - - SPORTS -

The Uni­ver­sity of New Mex­ico cross coun­try teams re­turn to Madi­son, Wis., to­day. It is on the course that will be the site of the NCAA cham­pi­onships, which means a large field —71 men’s and 71 women’s teams — will run.

The de­fend­ing na­tional cham­pion Lobo women fin­ished third there Sept. 28 and as a re­sult were bumped from a top rank­ing to No. 3 na­tion­ally. The men fin­ished 26th in an elite field two weeks ago.

MEN’S SOC­CER: If the be­lea­guered UNM pro­gram is to make any good news, it’ll have to come on the pitch. UNM (3-9, 1-3) hosts South Carolina (3-7, 0-4) tonight at 6 in a “Pack the Pitch” pro­mo­tion with $2 tick­ets. UNM has lost four straight and learned this week that there will be no plans for spring work­outs, even if the pro­gram gets a re­prieve and life be­yond this fis­cal year.

WOMEN’S SOC­CER: The host Lo­bos (7-5-2, 3-2-2 MWC) played to a 3-3 tie with UNLV (8-5-3, 2-3-2) on Fri­day night. Jessie Hix, Cami Floth and Gwen Maly scored for UNM.

In Las Cruces, New Mex­ico State (1-13) was de­feated 4-0 by Seat­tle (7-7-2), with Kelsey Vo­gel scor­ing twice.

VOL­LEY­BALL: UNM (11-8, 5-2) got knocked out of a share the Moun­tain West Con­fer­ence lead when los­ing at San Diego State Thurs­day night. It can gain a share of it back to­day at first-place Fresno State (13-6, 5-1). … New Mex­ico State (14-5, 4-2) can take down one of the two teams in front of it in the Western Ath­letic Con­fer­ence race to­day (7 p.m.) at UT Rio Grande Val­ley (14-7, 5-2).
