HAMBURG, N.Y. - Katy Dorsheimer (Lakeview, NY/Frontier) and Andrew Kozak (Lackawanna, NY/St. Francis) are the top returnees to the Hilbert College cross country teams. 


Dorsheimer is undefeated in her career on Hilbert’s home course, and holds two North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) titles. She finished second in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) championship a year ago. Katy was also a member of the AMCC’s All-Conference and All-Academic Teams in 2003. 


Kozak returns for his senior season at Hilbert and looks to finish his career on a strong note. The top runner on last year’s men’s team, he took home team MVP honors and finished 38th at the 2003 AMCC Championship.


Head coach Dick Berry will also look for junior college transfer Stacey Zinck (Hornell, NY/Hornell), as well as returners Brian Wojcik (Buffalo, NY/St. Mary’s), Chris Frunzi (Hamburg, NY/St. Francis) and Glen Ufland (Buffalo, NY/Bishop Timon) to make solid contributions to the teams.


The Hawks have home meets at 4 p.m. Sept. 17 and Oct. 1. The AMCC championships will be held Oct. 30 at Frostburg State in Frostburg, Maryland.
