Cross Country Paced by Seynaeve in Sacramento
Sept. 30, 2017
San Diego State cross country raced to a ninth-place finish at Sacramento’s Capital Cross Challenge on Saturday, led by senior Lily Seynaeve.
At Haggin Oaks Golf Complex, Seynaeve placed 17th after crossing the finish line in 21:32.0, just two seconds off her 6K collegiate best of 21:30.00, which she set earlier this year at the UC Riverside Invitational. This is the second consecutive meet in which Seynaeve has finished among the race’s top 20 Division I participants after placing eighth at the UNLV Invitational (5K) last week.
Classmate Cindy Flores was the Aztecs' next finisher, clocking in at 23:27.3 for 75th.
Freshman Renee Phillips recorded a 23:30.3 time, taking 80th among Division I athletes.
Junior Chrissy Calain finished the race in 23:40.7, the 82nd-best time.
Freshman McKenzie Mora finished just behind her, rounding out SDSU's finishers at 23:42.1 for 83rd.
The Aztecs are off for a week before heading to the Highlander Invitational (5K) in Riverside, Calif., on Sat., Oct. 14.
