Husky freshman Lisa Gibbs earned All-America honors with a 35th-place finish at today's NCAA Cross-Country Championships in Greenville, S.C., leading the Washington women to a 14th-place overall finish with 425 points. Husky senior Jason Fayant, competing individually in the men's race, placed 94th.

Second-ranked Brigham Young upset No. 1 Stanford for the women's team title, finishing with 62 points, well ahead of second-place N.C. State, which finished at 148. Georgetown was third with 180, Arizona fourth at 194, while the Cardinal - which put just two runners in the top-25 - and fell to fifth overall with 206. Arizona's Tara Chaplin was this year's individual champion, crossing the line in 20:24.

The 35th-place finish for Gibbs, who crossed the 6,000-meter Furman University Course in 21:24, was the eighth-best all-time for a Husky women's runner at the NCAA meet, and the third-best since 1993. Senior Sabrina Monro, who won four-consecutive races to start the 2001 season, fought through an inflamed tendon in her foot to place 78th overall in 21:55.

Fayant, competing in his first NCAA Championships, finished the 10,000-meter course in 30:24. The Huskies' senior captain, Fayant posted top-10 UW all-time UW individual finishes at the Pac-10 and NCAA West Regional meets this season.

'I'm excited about the results,' said fifth-year cross-country coach Greg Metcalf. 'There were a lot of teams blowing up out there, but we just kept our heads and ran well. Obviously, Lisa Gibbs was terrific, and Sabrina Monro struggled through her injury. She ran for one reason today, though, and that was for the team. I thought she did a great job.'

On the men's side, top-ranked Colorado edged Stanford by a 90-91 margin for the team title, with Easern Michigan's Boaz Chboiywo taking the individual championship in 28:47.
