6th place. Uw 58. Stan 60. Colo 87. Hole 88. Utah 103. Beavs 105. UCLA 195 Calif 256. At the halfway point, 7 behind hole, 3 behind Colorado and tied with Utah. Still, I'm sure that is our best finish ever.
A great showing by the whole team. It appears that everyone had a Personal Best 6K time (except 1 runner)! Freshman Ruby Broadbent placed 30th (3rd for OSU) and looks to be amazing.
Even though we were ranked #9, it seems that Cross Country teams hold off their best runners until the end of the season - much like OSU sends the best runners to the bigger meets unless they need some training/conditioning.
The Freshmen and Sophomores performed very well and will be the nucleus for next year's team. It's going to be a big hit losing Kaylee and Grace, but Ruby B, Sage B, Kate L, Noemi L, Teaghan K, and Emily F seem to be making great strides. Not sure if Abigail Pradere has any more eligibility remaining. It seems like a couple good freshman runners redshirted this year too.
Kaylee's best time as a Sophmore was about 20:30 for the 6K, and Grace ran a 20:50 as a Freshman, so it these underclassmen can carry the torch in the years to come and continue to improve, we'll see some good teams in the future.
Here's a list of runners/times:
Mitchell, Kaylee SR 19:15.10
Fetherstonhaugh, Grace SR 19:19.90
Broadbent, Ruby FR 20:15.50
Brooks, Sage SO 20:27.10
Laurent, Kate SO 20:29.70
Pradere, Abigail SR 20:39.20
Lundgren, Noemi FR 21:05.70
Knox, Teaghan SO 21:21.10
Foote, Emily JR 21:29.00
Griffin, Delaney SR 22:11.20
I'm currently watching a documentary on beavers. It's the best dam show I have ever seen.
