COREY IHMELS INTERVIEW | HIGHLIGHTS | RESULTS (M) | RESULTS (W)

AMES, Iowa - The Iowa State cross country teams dominated the competition Saturday at the Iowa Intercollegiate on the ISU Cross Country Course. Redshirt freshman Maddy Becker claimed the women's title, finishing the 4,000-meter course in 18:56. Redshirt freshman Besu Shannon-Tamrat won the men's 8,000-meter race in a time of 26:35. The Cyclone men and women both won the team title as well.

Iowa State head coach Corey Ihmels said the groups used this meet as a stepping stone in preparation for the Roy Griak Invitational next weekend in Minneapolis.

"The top groups on each side performed really well and finished the race together," Ihmels said. "We had certain splits we wanted them to hit and they did that as well. Overall, it was a great day."

The Cyclone women claimed the top-16 spots of the results while the men earned the top-11 spots.

Iowa State competes next at the Roy Griak Invitational on the Les Bolstad Golf Course in Minneapolis.
