The world has been going through a lot of changes over the past year, and the challenges of dealing with COVID-19 and the unexpected also impacted the Michigan State Cross Country and Track & Field programs. The biggest change hit closest to home: longtime Director of Track & Field/Cross Country Walt Drenth decided to retire in the fall, leaving the programs in the hands of his former athlete-now-coach. Lisa (Senakiewich) Breznau, a former two-time All-America Spartan distance runner, was chosen to carry on Drenth’s legacy as the Interim Director of Track & Field/Cross Country for the 2020-21 season.
