FORT COLLINS, Colo.--Colorado State's men's and women's cross country teams competed on their home turf this weekend. Both teams finished in the top three out of eight.
Ellie Keyser placed second (21 minutes) in the 6K race, while Nicole Peters (21:13.3) finished fifth, helping lead the women's team to an overall placing of third. Followed closely behind, Hannah Pensack-Rinehart (21:25.9) finished 10th.
"We feel really good," said Head Coach Bryan Berryhill. "I thought both teams did very well going up against some tough competition."
The men's team was led by Spenser Lynass (25:11.5) who placed third, behind Ross Millington (New Mexico) and Jeremy Drenckhahn (Air Force), who finished first and second, respectively.
Christian Meyer (25:26.2) helped the men's finish by placing sixth out of 50 athletes. Jake Keyser (25:41.7) also had a strong finish, finishing third among Rams.
New Mexico was the strongest competitor at the championship. Both the women's and men's team had first-place finishers from the school. This is the fourth consecutive year that the men's New Mexico team has won. This is also the third year in a row that the women's team has won the championship.
"I thought the men had a chance to get second," said Berryhill. "When you are going up against New Mexico who is one of the best, it can be a hard one to beat."
Both teams will compete next at the Mountain Regional championships on Nov. 12, in Provo, Utah.
