CU was the best Big 12 team finisher in the women's race, placing second with 223 points. Junior Buffalo Jenny Barringer from CU came in second in a time of 20:37.9, 16 seconds behind winner Sally Kipyego of Texas Tech. Stanford won the team race by eight points over a young Colorado squad.
BYU's Josh Rohatinsky dominated the men's race, crossing the finish line in a time of 30:44.9. But in a sport where a team's top five racers count toward their team total, it was the Buffs' depth that led them to victory. After Vaughn, CU runners who finished in the points included junior Stephen Pifer (20th), senior Erik Heinonen (28th), junior James Strang (27th) and senior Billy Nelson (56th).
After Barringer, CU's women's top finishers were junior Liza Pasciuto (16th), freshmen Aislynn Ryan (46th) and Claire Maduza (48th) and senior Erin Marston (165th).
"Our team has a great comradery," said CU head coach Mark Wetmore. "They're best friends. They were relaxed yet confident and willing to work hard. They are a pleasure to be around."
