Senior EmKay Myers (14:35) claimed her first collegiate cross country victory as the Nevada Wolf Pack cross country team took first in a blustery Nature’s Bakery Nevada Twilight Classic tonight.

Nevada pulled away from the rest of the competition, finishing 40 points ahead of second-place UNLV. The victory was due in large part to the Pack putting six runners in the top-10, including a second-place finish by senior Caitlin Devitt-Payne (14:49), who sprinted down the stretch for the spot. Marissa Suan, Erika Root, Anna Preciado and Meagan Wood rounded out fifth through eighth.

“We’re developing depth we haven’t had in years.” said head coach Kirk Elias. “The kids executed and ran very well on actually kind of a tough night.”

Myers moved into second on the all-time 4K school record list with her finish tonight, well ahead of the rest of the competition for most of the course.

“It was nice to win a cross country race in front of a home crowd,” she said. “The fact that we’re running this close early in the season is a very good thing.”

Nevada will get back on the course Sept. 19 when they travel to Seattle, Wash. for the Sundodger Invitational.
