Mines cross country teams dominate Wash Park season opener

Posted

The Orediggers left their competitors in the dust Sept. 17 at Denver's Washington Park as both cross country teams took home titles for the second consecutive year.

Colorado School of Mines athletes also had the top two finishes in both races at the Roadrunners Invitational.

Graduate student Steven Goldy placed first among 131 runners in the men's race, completing the 8k in 23:45.

For the women's, redshirt sophomore and Mines newcomer Jenna Ramsey took home the gold out of 136 competitors, running the 6k-course in 21:31. Ramsey started at Mines this year, after transferring from Emporia State in Kansas.

The men's team had six runners finish in the top 15 at the Roadrunner Invitational

The women's team took home gold, silver and bronze, thanks to Ramsey, Zoe Baker and Molly Maksin, respectively. The Orediggers almost had a perfect team score but failed to get fourth place, as its next two runners finished fifth and sixth. Overall, 10 runners finished in the top 30.

There were a combined 26 teams entered in Sept. 17's collegiate races. Including Mines, nine were ranked in the nation's top-25, Mines Athletics noted in its press release. None came within single digits of either Oredigger team score.

Mines' next meet is Oct. 1 in Colorado Springs. Visit minesathletics.com for more information.
