Women’s Cross Country Begins 2013 Season at Bill Sudeck/Case Western Reserve Invite

ALLIANCE, Ohio – The Mount Union cross country team opens the 2013 season at the Bill Sudeck/Case Western Reserve Invite in Cleveland, Ohio on August 31.

Head Coach Kevin Lucas enters his fifth year as head coach of the women's program where he looks to build on their success from last year where the Purple Raiders finished second in the Ohio Athletic Conference. This marked the first finish in the top three for the Raiders since 2007 when they finished third.

The Raiders return All-OAC First Team selection senior Caitlin Goggin (Mantua/Crestwood) who finished seventh at the OAC Championships a year ago with a time of 23:50.00 and led Mount Union to a fifth place finish at the NCAA Great Lakes Regional held at Anderson, Ind. as she finished 22nd with a time of 22:29.63.

Seniors Jenna Balazs (Tallmadge/Tallmadge) and Rachel Smith (Waterford, Pa./Fort LeBoeuf) as well as the following six juniors: Nicole Miller (Tallmadge/Tallmadge), Brooke Mathie (Louisville/Lousiville), Jessie Iafelice (Mentor/Mentor), Hayley Buzulencia (Warren/Howland), Jana Sleutz (Kidron/Kidron Central Christian) and Catie Campbell (Blacklick/Licking Heights) and sophomore Caitlin Nagy (Cleveland/St. Joseph Academy) are other runners to contribute this season.
