Zografos Leads UO Women's Harriers

Sept. 22, 2001

SEATTLE - University of Oregon junior Carrie Zografos paced the Duck cross country unit for the first time in her career as the squad finished fifth in its season opener, the Sundodger Invitational.

Zografos finished eighth overall on the Lincoln Park 5,000-meter course in a time of 17:36 - also her first scoring appearance in her second year on the squad. Other Duck scorers included sophomore Laura Harmon (19th, 18:03), junior Erinn Gulbrandsen (33rd, 18:23), and sophomores Magdalena Sandoval (35th, 18:28) and Annette Mosey (44th, 18:39). Other Duck entries included freshman Sara Schaaf (49th, 18:45), sophomore Alicia Snyder-Carlson (53rd, 19:02) and junior Annie Davis (69th, 19:40).

'I thought it was a good start,' Oregon women's head coach Tom Heinonen, said. 'Our people competed well in their first meet of the season, but we'll certainly need to be a lot better next week when we see much tougher Division 1 competition.'

Overall in the individual chase, Washington senior Sarina Munro claimed a 38-second course record en route to the win (16:06), ahead of teammate Lisa Gibbs (16:58) and UCLA's Alejandra Barrientos (17:16). The Huskies took top team honors with 35 points, edging of UCLA (second, 53), Auburn (third, 95), Washington State (fourth, 107) and Oregon (fifth, 121).

Looking ahead to next weekend, the UO women join the No.-13 ranked Duck men's squad at the Roy Griak Invitational in St. Paul, Minn., Saturday, Sept. 29.
