STATS -- Wetzel was an All-Metro selection in cross country this fall after three impressive victories in the Spiked Shoe Invitational, the A1 division of the Doc Jones Invitational and the Meade Autumn Classic, and was the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference runner-up. The junior hopes to carry over his fall distance success to the winter.

SIDELINES -- Running is a family tradition in the Wetzel household. His older brother, J.J. Wetzel, runs for UMBC. The younger Wetzel, who ran 71 miles a week during the summer to get ready for the school year, has a 3.50 grade point average and scored 1,500 on his SAT. He plans to further his running career in college and is interested in such schools as Colorado, Maryland and Oregon.
