COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. – Led by an 8th place finish by freshman Delani Dietrich (18:14.3) the No.18 Oregon Tech women finished in 4th at the Cascade Conference Cross Country Championships held at Middlefield Golf Course.
"The ladies will need to race better as a group to have success at nationals," said Head Coach Jack Kegg. Both OIT teams are expected to receive at-large berths to the NAIA national championships scheduled for Friday, Nov. 22, in Vancouver, Wash. The final regular season polls will be released Monday, and those polls will be used to determine at-large entries to the national championships. Only the conference champion is guaranteed a berth in the national meet.
No. 3 ranked College of Idaho won the 5K event with 55 points with No.5 Southern Oregon close behind with 70 points followed by No.12 Eastern Oregon 88 points and OIT in 4th at 94 points.
