Demerey Kirsch
Cross Country

Senior Demerey Kirsch of the Nevada cross country team helped the Wolf Pack secure a top-five finish in this weekend’s WCC Preview meet. Kirsch ran at a  21:50.8 pace in the 6K event, good for a 16th-place finish in the field of 129 runners and is the seventh-fastest 6K time in program history. Kirsch’s top-20 time was one of the highlighted reasons that the Pack was able to lock down fourth place in the 11-team field.

Angel Meriwether
Soccer

Freshman Angel Meriwether played a vital role in a two-win weekend for the Nevada soccer team, scoring two game-winning goals. Friday afternoon at Sacramento State, Meriwether broke a scoreless tie in the 76th minute that gave the Wolf Pack the edge to capture its first win of 2014. Playing back at home on Sunday, the San Diego native again scored late in a game against Saint Mary's, breaking a 1-1 tie with just over five minutes remaining.

Jerico Richardson
Football

Making his first career start, Jerico Richardson had the best day by a Nevada receiver, in terms of yardage, since 2011. He caught 13 passes for 177 yards as Nevada topped Southern Utah to win its season opener for the first time since 2012. Richardson entered the game with three career catches and 22 career yards. His 177 yards were the most by a Pack player since Rishard Matthews has 220 against UNLV in 2011. Ten of his catches went for first downs.
