Falcon Heights Minn.- Utah State’s women's cross country team was led by freshman Kashley Carter, who placed 20th with a time of 22:10.5, to help the Aggie women place 10th out of 26 teams Saturday at the 30th annual Roy Griak Invitational.

The Aggies recorded 313 team points at the invitational, which was held at the Les Bolstad Golf Course.

"The women's team had a great performance," said USU head coach Gregg Gensel. "The women were led by freshman Kashley Carter to finish 10th as a team in a very competitive race."  

Finishing behind Carter was sophomore Kelsey Yamauchi, who came in 63rd with a time of 22:55.3. The final three scorers for the Aggie women were senior Jacqueline Winterton, crossing the line 73rd (23:03.8), junior Tori Parkinson, placing 80th (23:06.8), and a 100th-place finish by freshman Lauren Pierson (23:23.0).

On the men's side, Utah State was led by a new face in junior Ben Johnston, who placed 68th with a time of 26:18.9 to help the Aggies finish 14th out of 23 teams.

 "The men also ran well," said Gensel. “They finished 14th and once again they ran great as a group. We will now get back to some hard training in preparation for our next meet."

Following Johnston was sophomore Justin Sheets, who placed 70th with a time of 26:21.5. The final three scorers for the Aggie men were junior Colby Wilson, finishing 87th (26:35.3), freshman Jonathan Stutz, crossing the line 101st (26:46.6), and sophomore Tyler Roberts placing 125th (27:05.6).
