Brigham Young

CROSS COUNTRY: BYU's teams host their only meet this season on Saturday at the East Bay Golf Course in south Provo.

In a 12-team meet, the BYU women's team will seek to defend its title in the 5K at 9:30 a.m., while the men will try to improve over last year's second place in the 8K at 10 a.m.

Joining the Cougars are Weber State, Utah, Utah State, Southern Utah, Ricks, Western State, Trinidad State, Fort Lewis, and Utah Valley State College.

WOMEN'S TENNIS: BYU will host players from Washington State, Weber State, Colorado State and Boise State in the BYU Women's Tennis Invitational Thursday and Friday at the BYU outdoor courts.

WOMEN'S GOLF: BYU's team shot a 317 for a two-round total of 627 to drop from eighth to 11th at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational in Seattle, Wash., on Tuesday.

Senior Susanne Gillemo shot a 76 Tuesday to card BYU's best two-round score (149) and is tied for 10th going into Wednesday's third and final round.

MEN'S GOLF: Home-course advantage helped the University of Nevada come from behind to beat BYU, which finished second at the Wolf Pack Classic Collegiate Golf Tournament Tuesday at Lightning W Ranch Golf Course in Reno.

The Cougars, who came into the final round with a two-stroke lead, were unable to match the play of the home team, Nevada, which finished an impressive five under par on the day and seven over for the tournament.

Utah State

WOMEN'S VOLLEYBALL: The Aggies won a close first game from Idaho State and used the momentum to go on to sweep the Bengals, 15-13, 15-5, 15-4, on Tuesday night.

Amy Goulding led Utah State with 13 kills, while Denae Mohlman and Lori Sargent added 12 and 11, respectively.

Utah

WOMEN'S SOCCER: Utah defender Karen Boardman has been named Western Athletic Conference Pacific Division player of the week.

Boardman, a sophomore form Atlanta, came off the bench to score three goals on three shots in a 4-2 victory over San Diego State.

Weber State

MEN'S GOLF: Weber State's men's golf team took 14 strokes off their score from the previous day and still ended up in third place at the Big Sky Golf championship at Blackfoot Golf Course in Blackfoot, Idaho.

Sacramento State had a team total of 280 to surge from fourth to first place in the final round to win the championship for the second straight year.

WOMEN'S GOLF: Northern Arizona repeated as Big Sky champions for the second straight year, shooting a 292 team total Tuesday for a three-round total of 918. Sacramento State was second at 967, while Weber State (973) finished third in the nine-team field.

Southern Utah

MEN'S HOOPS: A new era for the men's program begins Saturday as the Thunderbirds open preparations for their first season of play in the Mid-Continent Conference.

Coach Bill Evans says fans may have a hard time recognizing his 1997-98 squad because of drastic changes in personnel and the style of play the Thunderbirds will employ this time around.

"We're going to be much more of a running team than we have been in years past," says Evans, who is 77-67 in five years at SUU. "We need to get more possessions and more easy baskets in transition."
