Women's Cross Country Set For Conference Championship
Posted: Thursday, October 28, 2004
The UW-Eau Claire women's cross country team will look to make a run at a conference title this Saturday, when the Blugolds will take part in the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championships hosted by UW-River Falls.
The women's conference championship competition is set to begin at noon on Saturday. The women Blugolds finished in the top seven in three meets this season, including winning the St. Olaf Invitational out of six teams. Molly Warner (Fr.-Mosinee) has been the top runner for Eau Claire this season, claiming first place on the team in all five meets she has participated in. She took first place overall at the St. Olaf Invite and has a season-best time of 23:07.6, good for a 13th place finish at the NCAA Pre-Nationals.
Jane Ovanin (Jr.-Amherst) has looked very good lately, finishing in the top three places on the team in her last four meets. She took second place overall last Saturday in the Lake Wissota Tri-Meet. Rachel Anderson (Jr.-St. Paul, MN/Harding) has been very consistent this season, finishing in the top three in three different meets. She has a season-best time of 24:38.3, accomplished at the Tori Neubauer Invite.
UW-Stevens Point will be looking for back-to-back titles at the conference championship this weekend after winning the 2003 meet with a team score of 26. The Pointers had the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth place finishers last season, all of whom are returning for this year's championship. UW-Oshkosh will look to top the Pointers after a second place finish last season. The Titans return 2003 individual champion Liz Woodworth for the competition.
The meet will take place this Saturday, with the men running at 11:00 a.m. and the women beginning at noon.
