In only their first season of competition, the Union Bulldogs finished runner-up for the TranSouth Conference title. The Bulldogs are returning two all-conference runners in Chris Winter and Cameron Groll.
Tim Yzaguirre is the only senior in the 2002 squad. Yzaguirre, along with junior runner Winter and sophomore runner Groll, will be asked to lead the young team and program. These players have helped build a strong foundation in their first year at Union and now must continue with the help of the two new recruits to help establish a winning tradition.
Freshman Chris Arnold and Bryan Plumb will join Coach Johnson and the Union cross country program. These players will get their opportunities to contribute to the success of this program.
Coach Johnson believes that this could be a very competitive team over the next few seasons if each player will improve to their potential.
