Tabor women finish fifth in Colorado

The Tabor College women?s cross country team placed fifth among eight teams at the Colorado College Invitational Saturday without top runner Liz Kleinsasser. The men placed eighth out of 10 teams in the field.

In Kleinsasser?s absence, Christiana Addison led the Bluejays to the line, placing 26th out of 74 runners with a time of 25:46. Addison was followed by: Jera Teselle (43rd, 28:40), Julia Carlton (45th, 29:00), Leah Kopper (51st, 29:50), Tessa Siebert (52nd, 29:59), Carrie Schroeder (53rd, 30:02), Tasheena Ruzinsky (57th, 30:51) and Elissa Richert (97th, 32:48).

Hunt said Kleinsasser is nursing a knee injury.

?I am pleased with our performances,? coach Karol Hunt said. ?We raced at 6000 feet while we train at 1400, and because we lost the Friends meet (to weather), this was our second meet and first full distance races.?

Dan Sigley led the men to the line, placing 57th out of 98 finishers with an 8-kilometer time of 30:43.

He was followed by Ric Johnson (60th, 30:52), Zach Gould (64th, 31:01), Zac Remboldt (68th, 31:24), and Justin Ball (85th, 34:03).

Coming?Tabor runs its home race this week, with the women set to run at 10 a.m. Sept. 27 at Cottonwood Point and the men set to start about 40 minutes later.
