1999 NCAC Women's Cross Country Championships Results

DENISON WOMEN, KENYON MEN TAKE NORTH COAST
TITLES; DENISON'S DUNHAM REPEATS IN MEN'S RACE 

DELAWARE, Ohio -- Denison took its second straight title and its first-
ever outright crown in the women's race and Kenyon captured its first-ever 
men's title at the 16th North Coast Athletic Conference Cross Country 
Championships, which were held at Ohio Wesleyan on Oct. 30.

Denison edged out second-place Kenyon by 15 points despite two Ladies 
placing first and second in the race.  The Big Red placed five scorers in 
the top 17 to make the difference in the results.  Kenyon senior Laura 
Shults (Hornell, N.Y.; Hornell) won the race in 19:31.20, followed by her 
teammate, freshman Gelsey Lynn (Mt. Pleasant, Pa.; Mt. Pleasant) in 
19:51.50.  The top individual for Denison was freshman Adrienne Shue 
(Circleville, Ohio; Circleville), who was five seconds behind Lynn in 
third.  Earlham junior Shannan Rieder (Cincinnati, Ohio; Mount Notre Dame) 
was fourth in 20:03.70 and Denison junior Susan Bettcher (Strongsville, 
Ohio; Strongsville) placed fifth with a 20:11.00 clocking.   

Kenyon's margin of victory over Denison in the men's race was even tighter 
-- by just seven points.  In this race, it was the Big Red who had 
individuals place first and second, and the Lords who had all five scorers 
in the top 19.  Denison junior Joe Duhnam (Laramie, Wyo.; Laramie) won his 
second straight individual crown with a time of 26:15.40.  It is the third 
time he has placed in the top two at the NCAC Championships.  His 
teammate, freshman Brock Babcock (Platte City, Mo.; Platte County), was 
second in 26:53.30.  Wabash made its mark in its first NCAC championship 
event by placing two in the top four.  Senior Mike Vega (Lake Station, 
Ind.; Edison) was third in 26:58.20 while his Little Giant teammate, 
senior Greg Augspurger (Louisville, Ky.; Castle [Ind.]), was five seconds 
behind in fourth.  Kenyon freshman Ben Hildebrand (Rochester, N.Y.) in 
27:13.60, rounded out the top five.

The top seven individual finishers earn first-team All-NCAC honors, with 
the next seven placed on the second team and the third seven receiving 
honorable mention.
