The University of Colorado cross country teams won the first ever Pac-12 Conference titles in any sport on Saturday morning, sweeping the men’s and women’s races at the Wigwam Golf Course. “I would give each team an ‘A’ for today’s performance,” head coach Mark Wetmore said. “They came out and raced what they were capable of and some even exceeded expectations. It was a good day and we couldn’t have asked for much more from either team.”
Senior Richard Medina and sophomore Shalaya Kipp led the University of Colorado cross country teams to victory at the 26th Annual Rocky Mountain Shootout at the Buffalo Ranch on CU’s South Campus. Both Medina and Kipp took first place overall to earn their first Rocky Mountain Shootout crowns.
Medina won the 8-kilometer race with the fourth fastest time ever in course history, crossing the finish in 24 minutes, 39 seconds. The Grand Junction, Colo. native redshirted last season, so this was his first cross country race in almost two years.
The University of Colorado’s cross country season got off to a great start on Saturday morning at the CU Time Trial with strong performances from the No. 4 ranked women and No. 7 ranked men’s teams.
