Methodist Names Jacobsen Its New Cross County Coach


Byline: Bob Frisk

If this column format looks familiar, that's because it appeared for the first time during the 1997-98 school year.

I waited to kick off the weekly 1998-99 version because a sports notes column needs, well, some sports notes.

With the colleges just getting started, those notes have been slow to arrive. The sports information directors are getting their fax machines and computers warmed up.

Although I will cover athletes from Cook and Lake counties now participating in college, I also will include other notes of interest in area sports.

If you have a clinic, let me know.

Keep those cards, letters and faxes coming.

Parents, don't hesitate to brag a little about your child. If he or she does something significant in college sports, I'm as close as a letter, fax or e-mail.

I will try to avoid just listing athletes on college rosters. I would prefer using actual achievements so keep that in mind.

It's good to be back to remind people there is life after high school sports.

Cross country

After serving Grinnell and Cornell colleges in Iowa as an assistant coach, Jennifer Jacobsen (Schaumburg) has been named head of the men's and women's cross country programs at Methodist College in Fayetteville, N.C.

Jacobsen also will head the track and field teams at the NCAA Division III school.

Last fall, she worked as the special populations track and field coordinator for the Iowa City Parks Department, coaching children and adults in preparation for the Special Olympics.

The 1995 Grinnell graduate earned a B.A. degree in history.

While competing in cross country and indoor and outdoor track and field, she earned 12 varsity letters and was captain of all three teams for her junior and senior seasons.

Jacobsen has a Level I and Level II certification in the USA Track and Field Coaches' Education Program.

She received her M.A. in cultural studies of sport at the University of Iowa with an emphasis in sport psychology, health, leisure and physical studies.

- Jill Morrill (Palatine) of Kent State University finished seventh in the Black Squirrel Classic. Kent defeated Akron, Canisius and Ashland for the title.

Football

Joe Nowak (Schaumburg), starting fullback and three-year letterman at Valparaiso University, has been elected captain of the Crusaders.

Valparaiso coach Tom Horne calls Nowak "Full-Go-Joe" because of the effort he shows.

In a 20-17 loss to Tri-State University, Nowak rushed for 60 yards and a touchdown.

- Quarterback Mark Peterson and flanker Steve Webb, both from Buffalo Grove, are redshirt freshmen on the Northern Michigan University team.

Peterson is listed as the No. 2 quarterback, and he saw action in the opening win over St. Francis, completing 2-of-3 passes for 14 yards. He also rushed twice for 20 yards.

Webb also saw limited action in the opener. He is playing behind senior All-American flanker Jeremy Wilkinson.

Golf

The first Prospect High School Booster Club Golf Outing will be held Wednesday, Sept. 30 at Mount Prospect Country Club, 600 See-Gwun.

The shot gun start is set for 8:30 a.m.

Cost is $75 donation per golfer. The donation includes golf, a cart, continental breakfast, prizes, refreshments and lunch. …
