Junior Emeline Crutcher and sophomore Katy Williams both finished in the top-10 for the ‘Belles, as  senior Bryan Barker came in sixth, Tuesday, at the ASU Blue and Gold Classic at Red Arroyo Park.

Crutcher (18:37), Williams (19:26) and senior Allyssa Priest (19:43), who finished 13th, all ran the 6 - kilometer course in under 20 minutes to help the women's team take third place.

Junior Kami Orsak (20:19) came in 19th place for the ‘Belles, as Sophia Ramos (20:23) finished just behind her in 20th.

Annifer Flores took 23rd with a time of 20:51, while junior Jessica

Boudreau (21:15) and sophomore Kelsey Merritt (22:15) were 25th and 37th, respectively.

Barker ran the men's 8 - kilometer race in 28:04 to lead his team to take second place, their best finish of the season.

Senior Robert Hummingbird joined Barker in the top-15 with a time of 29:22, while freshman Dylan Littlejohn (29:37) and junior Isac Valdez (29:41) finished 18th and 19th, respectively.

Freshman Jamin Goecker (30:08) came in 25th place and Tomas

Callejas in 27th, a few seconds later with a time of 30:16.

The men and women teams will be back at Red Arroyo Park on Saturday, Oct. 22, for the Lone Star Conference Championships, which Littlejohn said will definitely be an advantage for the ASU teams.

"I think we learned some spots where we can kick it and surge and stuff like that," Littlejohn said.

However, he said they still have their work cut out for them because of the tough conference competition.
