Nov. 11, 2016
SACRAMENTO, California (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV Cross Country finished 29th overall (827 points) at the NCAA West Regional (6K) hosted by Sacramento State Friday at Haggin Oaks Golf Course. Spencer Moore crossed the line first for the Rebels in a time of 21:23.5.
"I am so proud of how we fought today," said head coach Jebreh Harris. "Today was the toughest I've seen us compete this year. We've had a few mishaps this fall, but I like how we rallied for our last race. Spencer led the charge for us with a strong run in the front. Ziff, Williams, Amburgey, Eskin, and Biggers all stepped up to the plate and did their job. It's sad to see senior, Sara Williams close out her racing career with us today. Sara has been a great contributer in her four years at UNLV. We competed today and I'm satisfied to see the fight I know we have in us."
The Stanford Cardinal finished first overall in team scoring with 71 points, and it did so with runners that placed between seventh and 20th. Washington (88) and San Francisco (101) took second and third, respectively.
Washington's Amy-Eloise Neale took home top honors with a time of 19:27.8. San Francisco's Charlotte Taylor (19:40.3) was second while Boise State's Brenna Peloquin (19:42.0) was third.
