Raiders sweep titles at Classic

CORVALLIS — The Southern Oregon men's and women's cross country teams both came away with team titles at the Oregon State Beaver Classic on Saturday.

The top-ranked SOU men won the title with 21 points, easily outdistancing NCAA Division I Seattle University (44), the Oregon Running Club (98), the Southern Oregon Running Club (144), Oregon Tech (150) and Northwest (159).

The 11th-ranked SOU women won the title with 41 points. NCAA Division I Portland finished second with 61 points, followed by the Oregon Running Club (87), Seattle (100), Northwest (112) and Western Oregon (131).

Senior David Laney continued his hot streak by winning the individual title with a time of 24:12, a personal best for an 8K race.

Zach Elliott finished third in 24:30, Ryan Sorenson was fourth in 24:50 and Ryan Ghelfi captured fifth in 24:51. Dennis McCaffrey secured eighth place in 24:54 and James Johnstone finished ninth in 24:57.

"To have six guys under 25 minutes in an 8K race is very impressive," SOU head coach Brent Ericksen said.

Anya Martinez was the top finisher for the SOU women, finishing fourth in 21:56.

Seena Frantz was fifth in 21:57, followed by Laurie Stoutenburgh (seventh, 22:04), Tara Krempley (12th, 22:17) and Summer Cano (13th, 22:21).

The Raiders are off until Nov. 6, when they take part in the Cascade Conference Championships in Klamath Falls.


SOU 2, EVERGREEN STATE 0 — At Ashland, Stephanie Carr scored a pair of goals to lead the Southern Oregon women's soccer team to a victory over Evergreen State.

The Raiders (11-3-2, 5-1-1 Cascade Conference) have matched the school record for most wins in a season.

Carr got the Raiders on the board in the first half after tapping in a beautiful pass from Kennedy Roteman from 10 yards out for a 1-0 lead at the 18 minute mark. Carr answered the call again for the Raiders three minutes later by banging in a shot off a rebound from 25 yards out.

Carr now has 10 goals on the season, which is tied for second in program history for goals in a season. Katie Emerson holds the school record with 22 in 2003.

The Raiders travel to top-ranked Concordia Friday.

SOU outshot Evergreen 30-1.
