Rice women's cross country finished 22nd at the Paul Short Invitational, hosted by Lehigh. In the biggest race, in terms of number of teams, Rice ever competed in, Audrey Wassef led the way with a 75th-place finish.
"Our two freshmen, Audrey and Christina Wassef, broke 22 minutes in the first 6k of their life after only running 2 mile distances in high school, and that predicts a bright future," said head coach Jim Bevan. "Marie Thompson had her best 6k in three years; all three performed very well. That was a personal bests for Allie Schaich and Laura Michel. Johanna Ohm has been out a long time and it was good to have her back running."
"We hope to be at 100% strength for the Arkansas Meet, this meet gave us a lot of experience and I'm excited about the future, with two freshman and a sophomore in our top five," added Bevan.
Audrey Wassef led the way with a 21:50 and a 75th place finish. Christina Wassef posted a 21:55 and finished in 82nd place. Senior Marie Thompson also broke 22 minutes with a 21:58 and a finish of 85th.
