Cross Country to Compete at Pac-10 Championships
Oct. 29, 2010
Corvallis, Ore. - The Oregon State women's cross country team heads to Seattle, Wash. to take part in the 25th Annual Pacific-10 Conference Cross Country Championships Saturday at the Jefferson Park Golf Course. The women's 6,000 meter race is scheduled to start at 10 a.m.
Jefferson Park Golf Course in Seattle will be the site of the 2010 Pac-10 Cross Country Championships. Beacon Street splits the golf course in half. The Pac-10 Championships race will be on the east section of the golf course. The course consists of three relatively flat loops for the women and four loops for the men. Athletes will race mostly on fairways with a small part of the race course on the rough. There will be parts of the course where the athletes must cross over the golf cart path and a wooded area.
A talented field of runners takes center stage for the 25th edition of the women's Pac-10 Championships with five teams ranked in the latest USTFCCCA Coaches poll.
The Beavers will be sending a group of 10 runners to compete this weekend. Natasha Buruse, Laura Carlyle, Abby Chesimet, Emily LaValley, Jennifer Macias, Sandra Martinez, Casey Masterson, Olivia Poblacion, Hannah Soza-Hodgkinson and Emily Wheeler will all be competing for the Beavers.
The Beavers last were on the trail when a small group of runners competed at the Beaver Classic at Avery Park last Saturday, Oct. 23.
Following the championship, final results for the women's race will be available at the Pac-10 website on the cross country championship page.
