MSU Cross Country Wins MSU XC Carnival title With Perfect Score

The MSU Cross Country team won their last race before the conference meet with a perfect score of 15.
MSU ATHLETIC COMMUNICATIONS-WICHITA FALLS, Texas -- Seven of the first runners to cross the finish line donned Midwestern State uniforms Saturday morning at the former Hawk Ridge Golf Course as the 17th-ranked Mustangs posted a perfect score of 15 in claiming the MSU Cross Country Carnival team title.
 
"Regardless of the meet or the size of the meet any time you can do that, it's pretty neat," MSU coach Koby Styles said. "That doesn't happen very often. I couldn't more proud."
 
Senior Ashley Flores and junior Gabby Ruiz finished the race hand-in-hand each covering the 6K course in 23:12.60 while junior Emma Ramirez (23:27.80), senior Janel Campbell (23:43.60) and junior Danielle Chavarria (23:46.20) completed the official perfect score of 15 rounding out the top five.
 
"We had a shorter gap time than we've ever had. I thought 37 seconds at Oklahoma State was pretty good, but today was 34," Styles said. "We're getting closer and closer."
 
MSU's Abigail Gonzalez, who was running unattached, claimed fifth overall with a time of 23:44.20 finishing before the first non-Midwestern runner as Central Oklahoma Katie Kerns took 7th overall with a time of 23:49.20.
 
Sophomore Brittany Adams enjoyed a solid outing with a time of 23:53.00 as MSU's No. 6 runner.
 
"We had some runners step up today that I am very proud," Styles said specifically pointing out Ramirez and Adams. "It was a great day."
 
Rounding out the MSU efforts were junior Michelle Krezonoski (24:13.70/11th), junior Kim Krezonoski (24:20.10/12th), junior Lucia  Trejo (24:40.40/15th), sophomore Ana Lopez (24:49.00/16th), senior Melody Caldwell (24:56.40/17th), sophomore Maira  Salinas (26:03.20/22nd), redshirt freshman C.J. Frizzell (26:50.50/26th), sophomore Carrie Finson (27:42.70/27th) and freshman Maranda Rodriguez (32:42.90/32nd).
 
Central Oklahoma took second with a total of 46 followed by Southwestern Oklahoma State with 85 points in the three-team meet.
 
Midwestern State begins the postseason on Sat., Oct. 26 in the Lone Star Conference Championships in Portales, N.M.
