Rick Warpinski of the University Union — the University’s point person for hosting the event — says the Oct. 17 Fox River Classic Conference Cross Country Meet came off without a hitch at Shorewood Golf Course. The 600 runners and well over 1,000 guests seemed to really enjoy the experience, Warpinski says, and the University was collectively thanked publicly by the Preble High School organizing committee during the closing awards ceremony (photo above). Runners and team officials shared positive comments on the venue in general and a race course that was interesting and challenging.
Added Warpinski, “I extend thanks to the staff in Public Safety, Weidner Center, Business an Finance, Admissions, Facilities, and Shorewood for their extensive help in making this event a reality once again here on campus. The golf course shows a little wear but not in any critical spots… It was a great event. Thank you.”
