    Normal, Ill. - The UIC cross country teams put a final stamp on their season on Saturday at the NCAA Midwest Regional meet, as the women's team finished 16th (417 points) in the 23-team field, while the men took 19th (522 points) in a 24-team competition at Illinois State University.

    All-Horizon League performer Jenni Goebel paced the women with a 24th-place finish in 21:33 on the 6K course, while Lizet Diaz (65th, 22:20) and Sara Jeffers (98th, 23:00) also helped the cause.

    By virtue of her top-25 finish, Goebel qualified for the All-District Team for the second-straight season.

    Running in her final cross country meet of her collegiate career, senior Jessica Streit finished strong in 130th-place with a time of 23:42.

    Jessica Pancoska was 134th in 23:46.

    Optimism is high for the 2003 Flames, as the women's team returns its top three of Goebel, Diaz and Jeffers for next year.

    On the men's side, a trio of talented Flames finished off their collegiate careers in valiant form.
