SEGUIN, Texas -- Texas Lutheran Women's Cross Country took home a third-place finish at the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Cross Country Championship for the second consecutive year as all nine Bulldogs set new personal-bests.

Trinity won the title for the first time since 2013 with 21 points, and three-time defending champion Colorado College took home second with a score of 116 points.

The Bulldog's 104 points placed them 12 points ahead of fourth-place Austin College and 32 points ahead of fifth-place Southwestern University.

Junior Ashley Rynard (Temple/Temple) led the Bulldog women once again with a 16th-place finish and a personal best 6K time of 23 minutes, 21 seconds.

Senior Breauna Gabriel (New Braunfels/Canyon) was next for the Bulldogs in 19th place with a substantial personal best of 23:57.

Freshman Felicia Ortiz (Skidmore/Skidmore-Tynan), junior Kylee Garcia (Wichita Falls/Rider) and sophomore Ciara Rodriguez (Uvalde/Uvalde) rounded out the scoring for the Bulldogs with respective 20th, 22nd, and 27th-place finishes and respective personal best-times of 24:17, 25:00, and 26:02.

Darlene Holland, head men's and women's cross country coach for TLU, was thrilled with the performances.

"It was great to see everybody running so well," said Holland. "I was glad to see the women's pack-racing strategy pay dividends for Breauna, Felicia, and Kylee. It makes a coach happy to see their athletes do well, and this was definitely a day to celebrate."

Holland also is looking forward to the Bulldogs' upcoming regional meet.

"Our intention is to keep that momentum and head to Virginia in two weeks with a large contingent of the team," said Holland.

The Bulldogs will conclude their season at the NCAA South/Southeast Regional meet in two weeks in Newport News, Va.
