4 of the Mountain West ladies made the trip to the land of Pre last weekend (May 9th) for the Oregon Twilight meet.
First up were Meg Lerch, Jennie Newton and Rye Palen in the women's 5K. Long story short - it was a good day to be wearing the MW colors.
Meg Lerch gets the win with a stellar 16:42.04. She is on a roll this seaon and looks poised to hit sub-16:30. Jennie, getting oh so near to the masters ranks, runs a sub 18:00 with a 7th place 17:58.95. And, in 8th was Rye - her 18:05.68 also well under 6:00 pace.
In the 1,500, Dianne Cummins continues to run fast. Her 4:17.25 (roughly a 4:35 mile) brought her home in a close 2nd place to Oregon's Nicole Blood.
Way to go Mountain West ladies.
