PROVO, Utah. -- Colorado State's men's and women's cross country teams competed at the NCAA Mountain Regional Cross Country Championships Saturday.
Nicole Peters (21 minutes, 30.5 seconds) and Ellie Keyser (21:48.6) helped lead the women to a fifth-place finish out of 19 teams in the 6K race. Peters placed 15th, and Keyser finished 24th overall, and are expected to earn all-region honors. The CSU women are hopeful to finish among the top 35-ranked teams in the nation.
The men's team finished 10th out of 17 teams Saturday. Colorado State was guided by Spenser Lynass (31 minutes, 20.7 seconds), who placed 28th overall in the 10K race.
"We finished where we were ranked," said Head Coach Bryan Berryhill. "We had solid-to-good days, overall. I of course hoped we could do better."
Brigham Young won the men's competition. New Mexico and Colorado dominated the women's race, tying for first. All three teams will automatically advance to the national meet. The other teams will be announced Sunday, no later than 7 p.m.
