?We had a good racing day, running some of our best times of the season,? coach Karol Hunt said. ?Because we were competing against the strong Nebraska teams, we focused on our times, rather than our places.?
Christina Addison led the women?s team, placing 19th out of 75 runners with a 5-kilometer time of 19 minutes, 51 seconds.
?Christina broke into the 19s for the first time this season,? Hunt said. ?She is being rewarded for her hard work and focus in practice.?
Five Bluejays were separated by less than a minute: Liz Kleinsasser (48th, 22:03), Kelli Kopper (50th, 22:04), Jera Teselle (52nd, 22:10), Leah Kopper (53rd, 22:23) and Carrie Schroeder (59th, 22:57).
?It was good to have Liz back running again,? Hunt said. ?She is not yet in race shape, but is still making a good contribution to the team.?
Tessa Siebert (63rd, 23:30), Julia Carlton (64th, 23:40) and Elissa Richert (66th, 24:04) also ran.
On the men?s side, Zach Gould ran a season best 8-kilometer time of 29:03, finishing 46th out of 107 runners.
?Zach has been really focused in his training and it is paying off in his performance,? Hunt said. ?
Gould was followed by Zac Remboldt (57th, 29:34), Dan Sigley (62nd, 29:51), Ric Johnson (79th, 30:37), Justin Ball (80th, 30:43) and Dustin Burnett (102nd, 34:43).
