Moravec Leads Men, Wieman Paces Women, At RMACs

The Chadron State College cross country teams competed in Golden on Saturday morning, at the 2021 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Cross Country Championships at Applewood Golf Course.

The CSC women’s team, entering only five members, finished 14th of 14 teams, while the men’s team finished 13th of 15.

“Both the men’s and women’s teams competed very hard today,” said CSC Head Cross Country Coach Luke Karamitros. “I’m proud of their efforts. Our Eagles put themselves in a position to have the potential for a big breakthrough performance, but sometimes it’s not in the cards.”

Leading the way for the women, for the fourth time in as many races, was true freshman Alissa Wieman, who finished 77th in 25:37.9.

Freshman Kassyl Swinney had a personal best 27:53.4 at six kilometers.

The men, for the most part, finished as a pack with one minute, 19 second separating seven of the CSC runners.

However, top honors on the men’s side went to Logan Moravec, for the first time this season. He was the 75th runner to finish the eight-kilometer course, out of 124. Moravec ran his third-best collegiate 8k time, finishing in 27:40.5.

Adams State University was the women’s RMAC champion, while the men’s title went to Colorado School of Mines.

Brianna Robles of ASU was the first female to finish, while Dillon Powell of Mines was the first male across.

CSC will compete at the NCAA South Central Regional next, to be held in Indianapolis on November 6.
