MSU Cross Country Picked 2nd in LSC

Four-time Lone Star Conference champion Midwestern State had its run of league titles snapped last season finishing runner-up to West Texas A&M.
 
That's exactly where a panel of the league's coaches, sports information directors and selected media members picked the Mustangs to finish in 2013 Thursday when LSC officials released the annual preseason poll.
 
Midwestern State returns a trio of harriers which have earned United State Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches' Association (USTFCCCA) All-South Central Region honors over the past two seasons.
 
Senior Ashley Flores is a three-time All-LSC performer while earning all-region accolades in each of the last two seasons while two-time All-LSC performers Janel Campbell and Michelle Krezonoski garnered All-South Central accolades in 2011.
 
The Mustangs claimed LSC titles in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 while qualifying for NCAA Division II nationals in 2008, 2010 and 2011.
 
Defending LSC champion West Texas A&M received 12 first-place votes to top the poll with 130 total points, but the Lady Buffs were just six points ahead of MSU (7 first-place votes, 124 total points).
 
Angelo State received the other first-place nod and was picked third with 93 total points. The 'Belles own six LSC cross country titles with the last coming in 1998.
 
Eastern New Mexico (76 points), Tarleton State (72 points), Texas A&M-Commerce (35 points) and Texas A&M-Kingsville (30 points) round out the poll.
 
Midwestern State kicks off the 2013 campaign with the Strohman Dental/MSU Stampede set for Thursday, Sep. 5 at the Memorial Athletic Complex Soccer Fields.
