KENOSHA, Wis. - Oakland's Ashley Burr won the women's 5K title with a time of 18:20.2 at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside Midwest Open on Saturday afternoon held at the Wayne E. Dannehl National Cross Country Course. The women's team placed second with four runners in the top-15 while Nathan Ziolko and Andrew Bowman finished third and fourth in the men's 8K with times of 25:26.0 and 25:30.1 respectively helping the men's team to a third place finish.



"The course was a bit messy from all the rain and that made today about true cross country," said head coach Paul Rice. "I am very happy we made this trip for our athletes as it gave them a great look at the league course we will race on in November. The women really put together a nice race today considering we are still missing a few girls. Ashley looked great up front and really had a nice battle to the finish for the win. The guys stumbled a little today, but we know we have a lot of work left in this season. I am looking forward to the next three week training cycle we have now until we race at Notre Dame in October."



Karli Keur, Kaitlin Catania and Kendra Colesa finished 13th-15th helping the women's team record 65 points fishing second behind Winona State (31 points).



On the men's side, Jacob Bowman finished 12th while George O'Connor, Tyler Delange and Alex West placed in the top-30 helping Oakland to a third place finish with 62 points behind second place Milwaukee (51) and winner UW-Parkside (28).



Both teams will compete at the Notre Dame Invite on Saturday, Oct. 3.
