Many congratulations to the Lady Grizzlies of Adams State on their fifth straight victory in the DII Cross-Country Championship, the thirteenth in the program's history. Senior Tanya Gaurmer led the way with a 3rd place finish, and all other scoring runners finished in the top 24, leading to an astronomical 63-178 victory over runner-up Seattle Pacific, whose Jessica Pixler took home individual honors.
Kudos must, as well go these STUDENT-athletes for their performance in the classroom. The Women's Cross-Country/Track program at Adams State posts an 82% graduation rate, with Seattle Pacific coming in 71%. Yet two more programs hobbled by high academic standards.
