Quick Sports: Ranked runners stride to Cowboy Jamboree

After cracking into the top-15 ranks this past week, both cross country teams head to Stillwater, Okla. for the 71st annual Cowboy Jamboree. The men’s team is No. 13 in the NCAA South-Central Region while the women’s team is No. 10, according to the recent results from the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

Leading the men’s team into Stillwater is sophomore Festus Kigen, who is yet to finish less than second place in any race this season. He recently received Mountain West Conference Athlete of the Week honors for his performance at the Texas A&M Invitational.

The women’s team is carried by freshman Tanja Ivandic, sophomore Dani Selner and junior Ashley Young. Ivandic and Young were the top two finishers for the women’s team at the A&M Invite finishing eight seconds apart finishing near the top third of the pack.
