    Kenosha, Wis.- The University of Illinois at Chicago men's and women's cross country teams took fifth and sixth place, respectively, amongst some of the top teams in the nation at the 2004 Horizon League Cross Country Championships at the UW-Parkside National Cross Country Course in Kenosha, Wis., on Saturday.

    UIC was led by Mikhail Davidyan in the men's 8,000-meter event and Susie Martinez in the women's 5,000 meters. Davidyan closed out his run with a 23rd place finish at 26:45, while Martinez ran a 20:10 5K to place 29th.

    The Flames were able to keep pace with each other, particularly on the men's side. The number 27 turned out to be Sam Watson's digits for the day, as the sophomore ran to a 27:00 finish to place 27th overall.

    Near Watson was freshman Joseph Mbari and sophomore Jim Sulzberger, who finished right behind one another as Mbari ran a 27:04 for 31st and Sulzberger was a tick behind at 27:05 for 32nd.

    Jorge Flores continued to flourish in his freshman year with a 27:21 for 37th place. Bob Dron and Jose Macias completed the course a couple of places after Flores, while Antonio Kipkorir wrapped up the men's meet for UIC.

    For the women's team, Lisa Petty added another nice race to her strong sophomore season with a 20:28, just 18 seconds behind Martinez in taking 34th.

    Rachel Covert was the squad's third-best finisher with a 20:52, while freshman Kerry Brennan was not too far behind Covert in crossing the finish line in 21:18.

    Fellow freshman Julie Cain was next with a 22:47, while Laura Otepka, a standout in jumps during track season, helped give the Flames a complete team by running her first meet of her UIC career in 25:49.

    Butler took both the men's and women's team titles. The Bulldogs' Victoria Mitchell won the women's event while Butler's men took the top six spots in the 8K, led by Andrew Sherman.

    The NCAA Regionals will be held in Peoria, Ill., on Nov. 13th at 11:00 a.m.
