    FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State took on the Roadrunner Invitational Saturday in Bakersfield, Calif.

    "This was a good chance for some of our team to get out there and score," said cross country coach Sean McManus. "Many of these women don't normally get a chance to score for the team, so this was their chance to step up and contribute for the team. And they did a good job."

    Sophomore Stevie Brumwell led the Bulldogs in the 5K with a career-best in 19:23.40 to take 14th among the 96 competitors.

    "Stevie great job today," said cross country coach Sean McManus. "She ran a PR by over a minute, which is huge."

    Teammate Kelsey Smith, a freshman, filled in the No. 2 spot for Fresno State. Smith timed in at 19:32.10 for 17th in her first collegiate race. Junior Pamela Cruz ran a 20:21.70 for 22nd overall and third for the Bulldogs. Sasha Souder ran a 20:35.10, besting her career-best set in 2007 to take 25th. Junior Jenna Rogers and redshirt-freshman Julianne Warmerdam came in next, taking 28th and 29th respectively. Rogers ran a 20:42.90, while Warmerdam clocked a career-best 20:51.20.

    Jocelyn Oviedo and Alexandria Gambala put in good performances as well, running in the 36th and 37th spots overall. Oviedo, a senior, ran a career-best 21:06.20 in the 5K. Gambala, a freshman, timed a 21:16.20.

    Track All-American Latrisha Jordan posted a 21:55.90. Tiera Hilliard, Brijon Menefield, Cara Montes, Andrea Greenman, Annie Bledsoe and Kamilah Parker all completed the 5K to round out the Fresno State competitors.
