Cross Country

Sally Schonfeld was a key in Lawrence University1s run to the Midwest Conference women1s cross country championship last Saturday at Grinnell College.The senior from Reedsburg ran to All-Midwest Conference honors for the third time in her career when she placed seventh in a time of 19 minutes, 15 seconds.

The Lawrence women captured their second conference title in three years with the victory. Lawrence, which won the crown in 1999, took the team championship with 41 points, and Carroll was second with 47.


Zach Michael had a record-setting day for the Lawrence University football team in a 35-21 loss at Monmouth College last Saturday.

Michael, a sophomore wide receiver from Appleton, caught 15 passes for 279 yards and three touchdowns. In the process, he broke the school records for receptions in a game (the previous record was 14 by Sal Cianciola vs. Ripon in 1953) and receiving yards in a game (the previous record was 241 by Ron Wopat vs. Beloit in 1976). Michael’s 96-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter also broke the record for the longest touchdown play from scrimmage in school history. Michael now has 55 catches for 910 yards and 10 touchdowns this season.
