Nov. 14, 2004
Ft. Collins, Colo. - The University of Nevada cross country team will most likely not receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Championships after finishing 13th at the NCAA Mountain Regional hosted by Colorado State Saturday. Nevada tallied 337 points with two of its runners finishing in the top-50.
Colorado took the team title with 32 points with BYU taking second with 54. One other WAC team shares the region with the Wolf Pack. UTEP finished just behind the Wolf Pack at 14th with 357 points. Colorado's Renee Metivier won the individual medal with a time of 20:05.4 over Norther Arizona's Ida Nilsson at 20:25.1.
For the second straight meet, senior Sara Frank (Reno, Nev.) was the lead runner for the Pack taking 41st with a time of 22:12.3. Junior Jenna Huber (Grand Prairie, Canada) finished just on Frank's heels in 42nd at 22:13.2. Senior Jessica Ford (Lee Vinning, Calif.) took 67th at 22:56.5 with sophomore Kali Baker (Las Vegas, Nev.) in at 23:44.8, good enough for 97th. Junior Virginia Johnson (Bend, Ore.) finished off the scoring lineup for the Pack, in at 101st (23:56.7).
The NCAA Championships are set for Monday, Nov. 22 at Terre Haute, Ind. Final at-large nominations will be named later next week by the NCAA.
