Providence, RI - The Brown men's cross-country team will hold its first practice of the 2002 season on Wednesday August 28th.

Coach John Gregorek returns a veteran team of runners including juniors Matt Emond, Mike DeCoste and Brendan O'Keefe. Emond, along with sophomore Jeff Gaudette, are expected to be the team's top runners this fall. Emond earned Second-Team All-Ivy honors in 2001 and Gaudette finished second among freshman at the 2001 Heptagonal Championships.

Top recruit Owen Washburn, the 2001 Massachusetts cross-country state champion, is a key addition to the team this fall.

Brown will open the 2002 season on Saturday Sept. 14th at the Harvard Invitational.
