Pac-12 cross country championships results: Colorado men and Arizona women emerge victorious


The Pac-12 cross country team championships on Saturday were won by the Colorado Buffaloes and the Arizona Wildcats.

Colorado took home the men’s title after placing five runners — Blake Theroux, Connor Winter, Ben Saarel, Pierce Murphy, and Ammar Moussa — in the top ten to hit an impressively low score of 28. The Oregon Ducks, scoring 54 points, finished in second, with Oregon freshman Edward Cheserek capturing the individual title in a time of 24 minutes, 36 seconds.

Things were a little closer on the women’s side, with the Arizona Wildcats edging the Colorado Buffaloes by a mere six points (69-75). The Wildcats were led by senior Elvin Kibet, who was named the female Scholar Athlete of the Year in the conference. Kibet finished the race in second — junior Aisling Cuffe of Stanford won — and was closely followed by teammates Kayla Beattie and Nicci Corbin.

Congratulations to winning individuals and teams. Cross country for life!
