COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- With three runners in the top-10, Baylor's women's cross country team finished second at the Texas A&M Invitational Saturday at the Dale Watts Cross Country Course.
Freshman Anna West was not far behind those veterans as she placed 10th with a time of 21:04.0. Two other freshman rounded out BU’s group of five scoring runners with Kathryn Foreman (26th, 21:44.8) and Gabby Satterlee (29th, 21:49.0).
The five-runner total score of 72 was just two points behind Rice’s 70-point winning total and eight points ahead of third place Lipscomb (80).
TOP QUOTE #1
"It was hot, so very, very tough conditions. Rice ran well and they were ranked right ahead of us in the region, but it was a good team battle. Three of our top-five were freshman, so for some that was their first 6K ever. I thought they did a good job. Anna West had a big race. Maggie and Peyton ran well. We know we have a pretty big one next week, but I was proud of how we ran this week." -- head coach Todd Harbour on the women's team
The men's and women's teams will now both compete at the Notre Dame Invitational on Friday, Oct. 30.
