SACRAMENTO, Calif. (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV cross country team finished 16th overall (469 points in the women's 6K at the Capital Cross Challenge, which was held at Haggin Oaks Golf Course.

Spencer Moore was the first Rebel to cross the finish line -- 56th overall -- with a time of 22.27.2. Emma Wahlenmaier (88th/23:08.2), Elisa Rovere (90th/23:09.8), Lindy Eskin (106th/23:27.8) and Skyler Free (129th/24:07.7) also scored for UNLV in the race.

REBEL OF THE MEET: Moore ran a team-best 22:27.2 to finish first amongst the Scarlet & Gray's participants.
QUOTABLE: "We gained a great deal of experience today," said head coach Jebreh Harris. "Solid competitiveness from the group today. Unfortunately, Spencer (Moore) took a fall before mile three, which effected her race a lot. But like champions, we get up when we fall and keep moving forward. A few bumps and bruises, but we are in good spirits and ready to put more work in."
