Cross Country First in SCIAC

Posted: October 31, 2012

Twelve Scripps students pushed the women’s cross country team to finish first at the SCIAC Championships at Prado Park on Saturday morning. The Athenas scored 30 points, making this the 22nd title for the women. The women’s scores were CMS 30, Occidental 66, Pomona-Pitzer 103, La Verne 113, Whittier 121, Cal Lutheran 124, Redlands 176, Caltech 234 and Chapman 265. The Athenas, ranked first regionally and fourth nationally, used strong front runners and superior depth to dominate the women’s race.  CMS had three runners in the top five overall and had seven runners finish prior to any other team’s third. Marnie Hogue joined the All-SCIAC First Team by finishing ninth. Lisa Beem finished 13th to earn Second Team All-SCIAC honors.

The teams will race again in two weeks at the NCAA West Regional in Salem, OR on November 10.  The meet, which serves as a qualifying race for the NCAA Championships, will be held at Oak Knoll Golf Course with the men racing at 11:00 and women racing at noon.  Complete meet information can be found here.
