LIVE OAK, TEXAS (Oct. 7, 2017) – Four members of the Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) women's cross-country team participated in the UIW Invitational this morning at the Live Oak City Park.
Head Coach Stephen Sherman said, "Today was a day we focused on getting certain people out there for purposes of fitness and to compete for spots on our travel squad for Kansas in a couple of weeks. I challenged those who raced to step up and compete and for the most part was pleased."
The Saints top female finisher in the 6k for the women was Ione Rodriguez (SR/Port Isabel, Texas), who logged a time of 25:05.8, for 11th place. Andrea Gandara (FR/Kaufman, Texas) finished in 13th place with a time of 25:15.8. Gabriela Guerrero (SR/McAllen, Texas) came in 22nd place with a time of 25:43.7. Aimee Aranda (SO/Refugio, Texas) finished with a time of 30:59.9.
"The women ran well today. No one disappointed and even managed to improve in most cases. I feel like it was more or less what each of them needed for each of their own purposes. In particular, I thought Ione put together a quality day. I was pleased."
The Saints will get set for the Mid-States Classic at Southwestern College in Windfield, Kan. The meet will take place on Oct. 21.
