SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of Utah cross country teams finished the Pre-Mountain West Conference Meet on Sat., Oct. 4. The meet, held at Morely Field in Balboa Park, featured top-ranked Brigham Young women's team and the New Mexico men. Both teams notched first place finishes in their respected races. Other teams included Wyoming, UNLV, and San Diego State.
The race gave the Utes an opportunity to check out the course that they will also run on at the Mountain West Conference Championship meet.
The women's team had a very successful race finishing behind BYU for second place (55 points) in the 6K race. Elise Greenwood had an outstanding day leading the Utes with a second place finish. Jenny Brusch was next at seventh place followed by Nellie Hammons at ninth, Season Meservey at 16th and Andrea Davidson at 21st.
The men's team finished third (59 points) in the 8K race with Jeff Davidson leading the way. He notched an impressive third place finish followed by Nick McKay at 7th. JP Rooney finished 14th, Tim Goldhardt finished 17th and Matt Hansen finished 18th.
"I'm very pleased with our women's team," states Head Coach Brian Appell. "They started race running as a pack and then moved up as the race continued. The men's team still has a lot of work to do. They're young, with most of the experienced runners redshirting, and will have to do better at the conference championships."
