The guard really pulled together tonight, and although it's been a rough season, we really jumped a big hurdle tonight," said Crossmen guard member Katie Apsey, 21, of Michigan.The Crossmen's 2002 program is entitled 'The Signature Series." The songs include "Heat of the Day" by Pat Metheny, "Candle in the Window" by Linda Eder and "Strawberry Soup" by Don Ellis.
