WALTERS’ TOP-10 FINISH LEADS RAMS AT LOU ONESTY OPEN

RICHMOND, Va. – Junior Nicole Walters (Orange, Va.) started to emerge as a real threat in the Colonial Athletic Association last year and if the 2010 season opener is any indication, she's even more on her way this year.

 

Walters earned a top-10 finish with a time of 19:34.42 over the five-kilometer course to lead the Virginia Commonwealth University women's cross country to a second-place overall finish at the Lou Onesty Open, hosted by the University of Virginia.

 

Senior Hayley Sullivan (Burke, Va.) and sophomore Hannah Leffew (Virginia Beach, Va.) finished in the top-15 with times of 19:49.01 (13th overall) and 19:55.49 (14th overall), respectively.

 

The freshman duo of Hailey Scheren (Washington, D.C.) and Caitlin Hoffman (Nokesville, Va.) wrapped up the scoring for the Black & Gold with top-20 finishes.

 

VCU is back in action in two weeks when it hits the course at the Hagan Stone Park Invitational in Greensboro, N.C.
