Iowa Western Reivers


Fort Hays State Tiger Open

The morning was amazingly cool and the course was  fast as the Reivers raced the Sand Plum Nature Trail in Victoria, KS. As the sun rose and shined through the two Catholic Church towers there probably wasn't a more peaceful and beautiful site.  The women took the course first with a 9 participants racing their personal bests for the season.  The top spot went to sophomore Shanieke Watson who ran the women's black race with a time of 17:57.1 which gave her the title.  The women's team placed 6th. place out of 19 teams.  The men's team had a great day on the course as well. Freshman, Fabian Garcia ran his season best 26:28.4 which placed him in the field 21st.  and the men's team finished 7th on the day out of 19 total teams.  All in all it was a very successful trip on the road for the Reivers.  They have one regular season meet left for the year in Eldorado, KS October 17, 2016.  This course will be the host site for the NJCAA Cross Country Championships in November.
