In Tuesday’s ASU Blue and Gold Classic Cross Country meet, the Rambelles placed first as a team and the Rams in second.

The Rambelles scored 35 points to Tarleton State’s 22 and the rams were beat 40-19 by Tarleton.

Senior Kelsey Warren placed first as an individual in the women’s race with a time of 22:19.82; it was her first win of the season.

Head cross country and track and field coach Tom Dibbern said he was really proud of Warren.

"She had a huge, huge PR (personal record) on her race and won the thing, so we’re really happy to see her on our last home meet ever competing well," Dibbern said.

Warren said she thought she ran pretty well.

"I think the rest of the girls did real good today too," Warren said. "I’m pretty excited if our girls can compete like they did today I think we’ll do good at conference."

The Rambelles had other top finishes as well.

Cheyenne Hibbitts and Bridgett Cadenhead, freshmen, finished within seconds of each other. Hibbitts at 24:11.44 and Cadenhead at 24:15.03.

In 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th place was freshman Clarissa Sanchez 24:51.40, freshman Alexus Ordaz 25:00.69, sophomore Valeria Gandera 25:21.81, and sophomore Kristin Wright 25:58.90.

As for the Rams, sophomore Laban Kandie placed second overall with a time of 25:47.15, and freshman Preston Brooks picked up his third top ten finish of the season running a time of 26:52.80.

The other finishes from the meet consisted of junior Reese Montgomery in 11th place at 27:18.24, and two freshman Matthew Newton and Arin Kleiner came in 15th and 16th at 28:33.18 and 28:38.69

Freshman Andrew Ochello (18th), Marshall Tousant (19th) and Jakob Porter (20th) finished with times of 29:31.97, 29:55.45 and 30:49.32

Dibbern said he thought the team ran really well.

"We ran to our capabilities," Warren said. "Obviously, it’s hard to judge PR’s on a cross country course, but we had a lot of top times."

Dibbern said this meet didn’t do anything to discourage where he thought they would end up.

"I can’t talk about the rest of the conference, but I know all we can take care of is ourselve and I think we’re where we need to be in relationship to where we are," Dibbern said.

The Rams and Rambelles will run in Kingsville on Saturday, Oct. 21 for their Lone Star Conference Championships.`
