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.
