The Golden Suns cross country team wrapped up their 2016 campaign last Saturday in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, at the NCAA Central Region Championship, finishing 26 in a pool of 32.
Amy Riera, of Southlake, Texas, led the Golden Suns with a time of 23:58.22 and placed 130. The last time a Golden Sun finished a 6K sub-24 minutes was in 2013, when Laura O’Dowd did it in the regional tournament.
Megan Bradley, of Springdale, finished next for the Golden Suns, coming in 137, posting a personal best 6K time of 24:07.67.
Cami Hedstrom was the third Golden Sun to cross the finish line. In her first 6K race, she posted a time of 24:16.59 and placed 143.
The 26th place finish for the Golden Suns is an improvement over their showing in last years where they finished 30th.
