Keeper Wins Jaguar Invitational

Keeper Wins Jaguar Invitational

EVANS, Ga. - Led by a record-setting effort from sophomore Holly Keeper, the Lady Jaguars outpointed Georgia Southern, Covenant College and USC Aiken for their second victory in three events this season.

Keeper established a new course record with a winning 6K time of 24:03.74 and fellow sophomore Claudia Nunez-Lopez took second place, just six seconds behind Keeper at 24:09.99.

ASU's Lyndsay Nichols (26:10.11), Angela Woodward (26:11.29) and Alicia Connolly (26:13.63) finished sixth through eighth. Ivori Sneed was 11th (26:59.80) and Camille Jackson (27:25.41), Lyndsey Barber (27:28.62) and Marybeth Sardinia (27:37.79) were 13th through 15th, respectively. Jamie Nagel was 21st at 28:26.92 and Blaire Robillard was 25th at 29:40.98.

In the men's 10K race, ASU registered six finishes in the top 10 and the Jaguars topped both Benedict and Covenant for the victory.

Benedict's Dickson Toroitich won with a time of 34:47.12 while freshman Dustin Ross, competing in his first-ever 10K, paced the Jags with a second-place effort of 35:28.39. Simon Hoyden was right behind just 10 seconds later at 38:38.82.

ASU's Robert Blackwelder was fifth (36:21.54) and Clay Holton was seventh (36:48.70) while Mason Walker and Matt Johnson were ninth and 10th at 37:10.01 and 37:14.53, respectively.

The Jags' Sean Kramer took 12th (37:51.50), Adam Aldridge crossed the line in 17th (38:33.48) and Shane Huckeba (38:47.58) and Joey Castillo (39:45.54) were 19th and 20th, respectively.

"We had a great meet, even though the field size was a little smaller than we are used to in the college races," said ASU head coach Adam Ward. "Regardless, our teams made up for it with stellar races over a very tough course and I'm pleased with how everyone packed up together and pushed through the hills."

"All day long (including the HS races) the crowds at Blanchard were great. Even the high school races had some course records set. The meet was a success because all the coaches involved wanted to put on a first class experience for the CSRA. I owe a special thanks to the crew at Columbia County Parks Department and the coaches at Lakeside, Evans, Greenbrier, Augusta Christian, and Grovetown for all of their hard work."

Both the ASU men's and women's squads are back in action next weekend in the Royal Cross Country Challenge in Charlotte, N.C.
