Women’s cross country looks to defend 2010 HAAC Championship

2011 Cross Country Preview

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – With several runners back from the 2010 Heart of America Athletic Conference championship team, the Baker women’s cross country team has lofty expectations this fall and the following year.

“The majority of our top five are sophomores and juniors,” Wildcat head coach Zach Kindler said. “Our biggest competition William Jewell and Lindenwood are out of the conference. I think anything less of a HAAC Championship would be a letdown.”

As a favorite entering the season, the Wildcats will look for leadership from sophomores Megan Rosa (Olathe, Kan.), Lauren Jaqua (Lansing, Kan.), and juniors Devin Freeman (Shawnee, Kan.) and Lindsey Brown (Overland Park, Kan.). Sophomores Ashley McBride (Olathe, Kan.) and Jenna Stanbrough (Emporia, Kan.) will most likely compete for the fifth spot.

“We’ve also got a few talented freshman coming in this year,” Kindler added. “I think all around we will have some nice competition and we look forward to what the year brings us.”

The Wildcats open the campaign on Sept. 3 at home at the Baldwin City Golf Course.
