Senior Audra DeStefano finished runner-up in the women's race and fellow senior Amos Bowen was fourth on the men's side to pace the University of Wyoming cross country teams at the Colorado State Invite on Friday at Hughes Stadium.

"I thought it was a solid start," UW head coach Bryan Berryhill said. "We've had two really hard weeks of training behind us. We wanted to get off to a good start and I felt like both teams had a solid effort today considering what we have been doing in training."

DeStefano's 17:37 placed her just five seconds behind the winner and was the fourth-fastest 5 kilometers by a Cowgirl since 1990. Junior Megan Brunette followed in 12th place in 18:04, while junior Ali Walker was 18th in 18:16. Sophomore Quinn DeStefano finished in 18:45 for 36th and freshman Regan VanDePol rounded out UW's scorers in 18:51 for 39th.

Bowen ran 15:00 for the men's 5 kilometers, while senior Aaron Derner was 10th in 15:06. Sophomore Jonah Henry placed 22nd in 15:23 to outpace senior Dylan Morin by one place and one second. Redshirt freshman Ricky Faure was 28th in 15:31 for the Cowboys' top five.

Wyoming is off the next two weekends, before returning to action at the Roy Griak Invite on Sept. 26 in Minneapolis.
