Transcript CROSS COUNTRY By John Brannen To an unaware spectator watching cross country may cause them to wonder why exactly dozens of people are putting themselves through a long, torturous race. But what cannot be seen during a competition is the amount of camaraderie and teamwork at play. The premise of the sport is to have runners finish as high, and as close together as possible -- when teammates can pace with each other then their team will score better. For UH, both the men and women's teams are built so that all runners can share the workload. One person may lead the pack for a few weeks at a time, but when they became exhausted, someone else was able to pick up the slack. Both units started the season strong when the Cougars hosted the Johnny Morris UH Invitational. The women's team earned second place overall with Kathryn Ducommun placing eighth out of 55 total runners. Megan Munoz crossed the finish line five seconds after Ducommun clinching 10th place, and Starla Garcia in 11th. The men's team finished in third with Nate Pineda leading the way to finish third. Also lending a helping hand was David Smith in eighth. At the Rice Invitational the women's team finished in second place, and the men in third. Ducommun and Pineda were again the top finishers on both teams. The men's team had its greatest triumph at the LSU Tiger Cross Country Festival, placing first overall. Pineda and Smith teamed up for fifth and seventh place, with Anthony Jordan placing 10th. The women's team placed second for the third straight week with Brandi Witte taking fifth place, Garcia in seventh and Ducommun in 10th. At the Conference USA Championship, the Cougars finished below their standards as the men's team placed sixth. The women's team placed seventh which qualified them for the NCAA South Central Regional. The Cougars maintained their perennial consistency at the meet placing 10th, the third straight year they have finished in the top 10. "When you're ranked 15th going in you have nothing to lose," head coach Ryan Turner said in a release. "Our women took a huge step forward. We beat teams that we lost to earlier in the year, which shows me how well they respond to adversity. Top: The women's Cross Country team made their third-straight top-10 NCAA finish.
