LAWTON – In their first event of the 2020 fall season, the Aggie women’s cross country team earned a strong first win at the Aggie Duels, repeating their title from last year.
Cameron put together a team total time of 1:45:55 with an average race time of 21:11.0 on their way to the win against Redlands CC. CU had the top six finishers and each runner finished inside the top-10.
Junior Keyanna Patterson led the way from the start, posting the only sub-20 minute time in the 5000 meter race. The Wichita, Kan. native recorded a personal best time of 19:49.0, kicking off her third year as an Aggie on a high note.
Following Patterson close behind was head coach Zach Johnson‘s runner-to-watch this year, Jessica Parnell. Parnell, a junior from Cedar Park, Texas, also had a personal best time in the 5K, finishing just a minute behind her teammate with a time of 20:49.0.
Edna Cheptum (21:20.0) and Serah Timbwol (21:51.0) placed third and fourth respectively with sub-22 minute times, followed closely by Vivien Chesire, who rounded out the top-5 with a time of 22:06.0. Additionally, Nancy Jebet (22:23.0) and Alejandra Collier (22:55.0) collected the final points for the Aggies in the win. Violet Torres (23:10.0) and Shianne Taylor (23:55.0) followed up with a pair of 23-minute times.
The Aggies next test will be on Oct. 9 when they compete in the Ranger College Invitation in Ranger, Texas. After that, just one more meet stands between CU and the Lone Star Conference Championship.
