The cross-country teams wrap up their 2015 season at the Northwest Conference Championship Meet

By PETER MELLING

The final act is approaching for the men’s and women’s cross-country teams for the 2015 season. They race in the NWC Championship Meet on Oct. 31 at Pacific Lutheran University’s South Field in Parkland, Washington. In preparation for the final event of their college careers, the seven seniors on the team took time to reflect on what their yearbook quote would be, their favorite moment on the team, what they hope to leave behind for future players, and their post-graduation plans.

Bobby Brandt ’16

“Let’s go, biscuits!”

That one time when I got a hug I really needed.

I hope to leave behind some footprints. Isn’t it obvious?

I’ll find a job and a beautiful lady, but not necessarily in that order.

Aviva Browning ’16

“What are you instimulating?!?”

One of the best moments was when I was sprinting down a sand dune with the whole team.

I hope the team always remembers that quiet is overrated.

I am applying to Teach for America, we will see how that goes!

Nick Ellis ’16

“We love our bread we love our butter, but most of all we love each other!”

My favorite moment was when Jeffrey David Mullins spit on Kodie Artner at the LC Invite from 10ft away. Kodie was flustered and I was happy.

I’d like to leave an impression on Keith’s heart. Also an appreciation for fruit snacks.

I want to learn how to be a tattoo artist. Maybe work for Americore or try climbing.

Angie Epifano ’16

“I have a Constitutional right to bear arms {said while flexing}”

My fondest memory is the endless antics that take place in Keith’s office.

I hope to leave behind some of my sassiness.

I’m applying to graduate schools in African Art History, and (fingers crossed) will work begin working for my doctorate next year.

Evan Gamza ’16

“We love our bread we love our butter, but most of all we love each other!!!!!”

All those times that Jeff Mullins’ spit managed to find its way onto Kodie.

I hope to leave the Lutes behind, in the dust.

I planning on working for Bobby’s 2-minute Tours.

Teresa Stackhouse ’16

“What are you instimulating?”

My sophomore year we had Friendsgiving at the then-captain’s house over Thanksgiving weekend. It was a really great, relaxing evening and made being away from my family okay. The team really is family in Portland, and have been for the last four years.

I’ll probably leave some socks in the locker room (as one is want to do), but I also want people to remember me for my killer abs.

I’ll probably go to graduate school for molecular biology or medical school. In the short term, I’m applying for lab technician and post-bac programs.

Ashley Wamboldt ’16

“What are you instimulating?!?”

My fondest memory of LCXC is all of the time we spent on long bus rides telling stories, laughing and playing music obnoxiously.

I hope to leave behind a team that has a lot of fun together and values the time they have with each other.

I’m not sure what exactly I’ll be doing after graduation, but I may move to Washington, D.C.
