Michigan State Coach Walt Drenth Retires
Dec 1, 2020
November 22, 2014, was a magical day for Michigan State director of cross country and track and field, Walt Drenth. His Spartan women, six of whom came from Michigan high schools, showed their superior depth and dominated the NCAA Division I Cross Country Championships in Terre Haute, Ind., despite putting only one athlete --sophomore Rachele Schulist-- in the top-10. They scored 85 points to Iowa State's 147, giving Michigan State their first and only women's national cross country title.
