“For their first collegiate cross country race Emily and Lorine did a tremendous job,” head coach Kelly Sullivan said. “It is just a great start for them.”

Sophomore Kambria Schumacher (Sweet Home, Ore.) finished seventh, and freshman Melissa Kauffman (Hood River, Ore.) finished eighth, making for four Oregon State athletes finishing in the top 10.

Freshman Cassandra Schumacher (Sweet Home, Ore.) finished 12th, sophomore Jackie Brown (Beaverton, Ore.) finished 14th and freshman Laurel Parks (Grants Pass, Ore.) finished 15th to round out the Beaver runners in competition.

“I was very pleased overall with the 6k we ran today. They did a fantastic job. It’s a very good start for these women,” Sullivan said.
