#14 MSU Mustangs get Cross Country Win

 Midwestern State gained just a bit more confidence Saturday morning claiming a team win at the MSU Cross Country Carnival at the former Hawk Ridge Golf Course.

"Any time you can get a win on your home course in front of the home crowd, it's a neat feeling and is really special," MSU coach Koby Styles said. "Even though the seniors have one more race on this course, to come out with a win is awesome."

Senior Gabby Ruiz (Tulsa, Okla. / East Central HS (Allen CC)) rolled to a second-place finish covering the 6K course in a personal best 22:20.00 behind the unattached Aly Coughlin.

Four of MSU's five counters were from the upper class including Michelle Krezonoski (Thunder Bay, Ontario / Sir Winston Churchill C&VI)(22:33.80/3rd), Emma Ramirez (Palmdale, Calif. / Knight HS (Antelope Valley CC)) (23:05.80/8th) and Kim Krezonoski (Thunder Bay, Ontario / Sir Winston Churchill C&VI) (23:29.60/11th) while junior Brittany Adams (Fort Worth, Texas / Castleberry HS) broke up the group with PR of 23:10.60 to take 9th.

Overall, the Mustangs racked up 33 points to finish well ahead of the field as Angelo State was second with 62 points followed by Central Oklahoma (83), Texas Wesleyan (107) and Rogers State (122).

MSU competes in the ECU Tiger Chase next weekend in Ada, Okla. before returning to its home course for the Lone Star Conference Championship on Nov. 8.

"Doing a hard effort on this course that we are going to see in three weeks, it gets us not only physically prepared but really more mentally ready than anything," Styles said.

Junior Ana Lopez (Hereford, Texas / Hereford HS) also turned in a 6K personal best time of 23:30.90 to finish 12th, while senior Danielle Chavarria(Lancaster, Calif. / Lancaster HS (Antelope Valley CC))clocked a 23:37.50 to take 14th.

Freshman Angela Dees (Kaufman, Texas / Kaufman HS) finished 17th with a personal best time of 23:44.40 while senior Cara Mack (Llano, Texas / Llano HS) (24:31.70/28th), senior Lucia Trejo (Huntington Park, Calif. / Bell HS (Los Angeles Trade Tech)) (24:47.30/31st) and junior Maira Salinas (Luling, Texas / Luling HS) (25:23.20/35th) rounded out the MSU competitors.

"We know this course like the back of our hand. We're out here every week and I think that gives up a leg up on the rest of the competition," Styles said. "I like we're we are right now. The attitude of the team is very positive. We're at a pretty good high right now. We want to keep this feeling going and we're looking forward to three weeks from now."

    A record 10 home runs. A slew of strikeouts. The all-or-nothing All-Star Game mirrored what baseball has become.
