MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The No. 26 ranked Iowa State women’s cross country team finished fifth today at the 28th annual Roy Griak Invitational behind a third place showing by Cyclone sophomore Crystal Nelson.

Nelson finished the 6,000-meter race in 20:50 and was with the lead pack from the start. Perez Rotich (17th), Bethanie Brown (21st) and Katy Moen (28th) also notched top-30 finishes. The Cyclones were one of five teams to have four runners to finish among the top 30 individuals.

The Cyclones were without team captain Samantha Bluske in today’s competition.
