The runners were good to go as both the men’s and women’s teams ran out of Stephenville each with a third place finish in the Lone Star Conference Cross Country Championships.

Lions Coach Ross Smithey had said prior to the conference championships, “I think we can improve our standings from the last conference meet.”

This year, the Lions women had their best finish since 1999.

Terra Truitt ran 22:45.80 to finish second behind Tarleton’s Aly Coughlin’s 21.58.20. Mary Hammonds (23:19.70) finished eighth and Tori Lenz (23:21.10) took ninth.

The Lions finished with 79 points behind runner-up Eastern New Mexico (71 points) and conference champion Tarleton (70 points).

The Lions men team finished with 95 points and third place following runner-up Tarleton (42 points) and conference champion West Texas A&M (22 points).

Luis Romero finished 12th at 26:27.10. Taking first was Geoffrey Kipchumba of WTAMU with a time of 25:03.00.

Midwestern State University’s Leticia Shaban was named Newcomer of the Year, while the Mustangs Sara Smith garnered Freshman of the Year acclaim.

The top 15 finishers in each race earned All-LSC runner honors.
