CEDARVILLE, Ohio – The Cleveland State cross country team competed at the All-Ohio Championship Friday afternoon, battling hot weather conditions and a depleted roster to finish the 6K race. The Vikings were one of eight Division I schools at the All-Ohio Championship, with the University of Dayton capturing first place.

"We had to overcome some obstacles today because of the weather, and we had some runners drop out because of that, but all-in-all we had a good race," head coach Joe Jaketic said. "We always want to do better than the previous year, and that didn't quite happen this time, but we still had a good finish and are still moving in the right direction."

For the fourth race this season, freshman Ashlyn Woods was the top CSU finisher, crossing the line with a time of 24:54 to finish 33rd overall. Right behind Woods was junior Katie Webb who posted a career-best time of 24:55 to place 35th overall.

Erin Pavick was the final Viking to notch a top-40 finish Friday afternoon, placing 39th overall with a time of 25:29. The trio of Alanna Shamrock (26:04 – 42nd), Sarah Mallow (26:10 – 44th) and Amelia Holt (26:41 – 46th) also competed in the championship race for Cleveland State.

The Vikings also had a group of runners in the Open Race, led by Ashley Lydic who finished the 6K course in a time of 26:38. Jesse Stallings (26:51), Brittany Carson (27:38) and Shannon Kruger (27:49) all had sub 28-minute 6K times, while Megan O'Keefe (28:00), Amanda Kalain (28:35) and Ashley Berlin (29:24) also competed.

Next up for Cleveland State will be the Slippery Rock Invitational, which is slated for an 11:00 a.m. start next Saturday (Oct. 12) in Slippery Rock, Pa.
