TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – The Baylor women’s cross country team couldn’t melt the wind chill.
On a cold and blustery morning, the 23rd-ranked Baylor women finished 27th in the 31-team field at the NCAA Cross Country Championships on Saturday at the LaVern Gibson Cross Country Course.
“It was just a rough day. We had higher expectations, but the weather definitely got the better of us,” Baylor coach Todd Harbour said. “We just couldn’t quite overcome it. Nobody ran really, really bad, we just didn’t have anything really good happen.”
Senior Maggie Montoya topped the Bears by finishing in 44th place, with a 6,000-meter time of 20:28.5. That was four spots out of an All-America finish.
Baylor freshman Anna West was the next BU runner to cross in 120th, while senior Peyton Thomas (146th), sophomore Lindsey Bradley (175th) and freshman Gabby Satterlee (235th) rounded out the team’s scoring runners.
