'Dogs Conclude Season at NCAA Regional
Nov. 12, 2011
Palo Alto, Calif. - The women's team concluded their season strong on Saturday at the NCAA West Regional in Palo Alto, Calif.
The Bulldogs finished 17th overall which was better than they were seated heading into the race. The women improved tremendously from last year and continue to grow as a team. The 'Dogs beat quite a few teams that finished in front of them earlier this season.
Freshman Lyndsie Etherton led the Bulldogs yet again finishing 37th overall which is extremely competitive for a freshman.
"That was the highest female freshman finish we have had at Fresno State in a long time. Definitely during my four years but probably going back even further than that," coach Sean McManus said.
The women's team has a bright future with such a young team. Etherton, Ann Poythress, and Meagan Paracholski finished within the top three for Fresno State and are all in their first collegiate cross country career.
"We have a really good group coming back for next year. The future is bright and we are excited because the girls get stronger with each season and having such a young team helps build a competitive program," McManus said.
