Oct. 7, 2002

*Senior Marty Fedmowski continued to establish his credentials as one of the top distance runners in the nation with a first place finish at the 20-team Indiana State Invitational. Fedmowski out-raced the 178-runner field with a time of 24:26.8 on the 8K LaVern Gibson Championship Course, which will serve as host to the 2002 NCAA Cross Country Championship in November. Only three runners in Butler cross country history have posted a faster time, and all three earned All-America honors.

*Senior Amy Morrison tied Butler's single match record for goals with four in the Bulldogs' 5-2 women's soccer victory over Loyola. Her performance matched the school mark set by Joy Aschenbrener against Detroit in 1998. It was Morrison's third multiple goal match of the season and the third time in her career that she's tallied at least three goals in a contest. Morrison currently stands second on Butler's all-time list for goals with 40.

*Senior Amber Gascoigne led the Butler women's cross country squad to a fifth place team finish at the Indiana State Invitational. Gascoigne finished seventh in the 174-runner, 6K women's race in 21:40.7 She was beaten only by runners from two nationally-ranked teams, #14 Arkansas and #19 Villanova.

*Junior Grant Barrie had a season-high ten saves in Butler's men's soccer loss to #3 ranked Indiana, and then he came back with five saves to lead the Bulldogs to a 2-0 win over Valparaiso. The 15 saves boosted his career total to 203 and moved him into third place on Butler's all-time list, 16 shy of John Cone, 1990-93, in second place. The shutout was his third of the season.

*Senior Nick Pantazi scored both goals in the Bulldogs' 2-0 victory over Valparaiso and moved into third place on Butler's all-time list for goals scored. The two goals gave him 39 for his career and moved him ahead of Steve Weiger, 1992-95, on Butler's all-time list. He's four goals shy of Stephen Armstrong, 1996-99, in the No. 2 spot.
