STILLWATER, Okla. -- The Furman women's cross country team placed three runners among the top six scorers to finish fourth with 94 points Saturday at the Oklahoma State Cowboy Jamboree in Stillwater, Okla., while the Paladin men finished seventh overall with 180 points.  Oklahoma State, the reigning men's national champion, won both meets, tallying 29 points in the men's 8K race and 51 points in the women's 5K competition.

"It was a tough weather day with a two and a half hour delay, but I was very proud of our teams today," said Furman head coach Robert Gary following the races.  "The day really belonged to our top three women -- they keyed off one another for the entire race.  We left campus knowing we would see the very best teams in the entire country, and we return planning to close that gap."

Freshman Allie Buchalski placed fourth in the women's race with a time of 17:53.70, followed by rookie Grace Tinkey in fifth at 17:57.48.  Junior Sinead Haughey finished the race in sixth place, recording a time of 18:03.73.  Freshman Laura Miller placed 37th after notching a time of 19:12.95, while senior Kacie Schoen rounded out the Paladin scorers with a 42nd-place finish (19:28.21).  Senior Catherine Burton finished the race in 19:42.49, claiming 50th place, while freshman Ann Sisson was 57th at 19:56.99.

For the Paladin men, freshman Tanner Hinkle led the team with a time of 25:10.28 for 17th place, while fellow rookie Troy Reeder placed 30th at 25:42.28.  Senior Jack Klecker notched a time of 26:18.78 to wrap up 40th place, followed closely by freshman Nate Riech in 43rd with a time of 26:24.68.  Junior Tripp Hurt completed the Furman scorers, taking 50th place at 26:47.53.  Freshman Brock Baker was 53rd with a time of 26:56.27, and junior William Ivey claimed 57th at 27:11.03.  Freshman Connor Sorrells completed the course in 27:12.03.

The Paladins will compete at the Blue Ridge Open in Boone, N.C. on October 18 and at the NCAA Pre-Nationals in Terre Haute, Ind., on October 19.
