The Brescia women's cross country team won the KIAC championships for the third consecutive year, this weekend. The victory earns them an automatic bid to the National Championships in two weeks at Kansas University. The women defeated conference rival, Asbury by 9 points.
The team achieved victory by placing their top 6 runners in the top 17 positions. Senior, Jasmine Pulliam, capped off a stellar career by finishing 2nd. Embra Hawkins (Jr.) continued her amazing breakout year by placing 3rd. Junior, Olivia Warren was 6th overall, while Courtney Naas (Fr.) was 14th in her first KIAC championship.
These finishes gave Pulliam, Hawkins, and Warren All-KIAC 1st Team honors. Naas was awarded to the All-KIAC 2nd Team.
"This team never ceases to amaze me.", said Coach Alan Schulze. "They have never backed down from a challenge when it matters most. I could spend all day talking about how the individuals on the team ran well, but that's not really what this is about. The TEAM stuck together and achieved the goal that we set at the beginning of the year."
