The UW-Oshkosh women's cross country team earned first place with 30 points at the UW-Oshkosh Open held Friday (Oct. 25) in Whitewater.

The meet was originally scheduled to be held at the Lake Breeze Golf Club in Winneconne, but due to poor course conditions caused by recent weather the meet was relocated to UW-Whitewater's home facility.

UW-Oshkosh was led by Lauren Urban, who placed second out of 32 runners with a 6,000-meter time of 25:01.

The Titans had four other runners among the top nine finishers as Melissa Srnka placed fifth with a time of 25:41, Tricia Cich sixth in 26:09 and Sydney Fricke ninth in 27:22.

UW-Stevens Point owned a trio of top five finishers, including Alexis Anderson who won the race with a time of 24:58. The Pointers also had Brianna Bralich finish third in 25:24 and Amanda Cieslinski fourth in 25:39.

Trailing UW-Oshkosh in the team standings were second-place UW-Stevens Point with 41 points, third-place UW-Whitewater with 54 and fourth-place Maranatha Baptist University with 94 points.

UW-Oshkosh rested several runners in preparation for next Saturday's (Nov. 2) WIAC Championship at the Cole Acres Golf Course in Cuba City.
