KERRVILLE, Texas – The University of Dallas women's cross country team claimed 3rd place at the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) Championship on Saturday. Dallas totaled 106 points to capture a top-3 finish out of seven participating schools.

This was the first 6k for UD this season, as its previous four races were all 5k distances.

Trinity University prevailed with a team score of 29. Colorado College followed with 36. Anna Wilgenbusch (St. Paul, Minn.), who was the lone member of the Crusaders to be named an All-Conference winner, ran the fastest time with a 24:13.59 for 12th individually. The freshman leader for Dallas boasted the top-team time for the 5th straight competition. She is the second member of the program to be named all-conference. Clare Myers achieved the feat twice in 2012 and '14.

Emma Kate Callahan (Overland Park, Kan.) notched a personal record (PR) with a 25:33.56 for the second fastest UD time and 19th overall.

Mary Korth (McKinney, Texas ) also garnered a PR with a 27:39.37 for 5th.
