LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Ole Miss women’s cross country team continued its stellar 2011 season by capturing third place at the Greater Louisville Cross Country Classic on Saturday.

Led by a seventh-place finish by senior Logan Waites, the women scored 202 points to finish third behind only the University of Michigan (81 points) and Ferris State University (190 points). Waites completed the 5K course with a time of 17:09.

Junior Katie Breathitt was the next finisher for the Rebel women, running 17:33 for 18th place. Junior Anne Threlkeld, sophomore Amy McCrory and sophomore Kayleigh Skinner rounded out the scoring for the Rebels, all finishing in the top 70.

"Logan once again ran with the leaders and was a great number 1 for us," said Ole Miss head coach Joe Walker. "But what was very exciting was how well we ran from 2 through 7. It was a strong team effort by our women."

The Ole Miss women, who finished first in each of their first two meets of the year, beat three SEC rivals on Saturday in Alabama, Kentucky, and Vanderbilt.

The Ole Miss men turned in a 16th-place effort, led by senior Martin Kirui, who finished 11th with a time of 24:18 on the flat 8K course. The sophomore tandem of Kipchirchir Kiptoo and Max Holman finished in 75th and 99th place with times of 25:16 and 25:31, respectively.

Junior Riley Young and sophomore Loren Newsom completed the scoring for the Rebels.

Purdue won the men’s team title over host school Louisville. The Rebels outdistanced SEC foe Alabama in Saturday’s meet, held at the fast E.P. Tom Sawyer Park, which will play host to the 2012 NCAA National Cross Country Championships.

The Rebels will enjoy a week off before heading to Tuscaloosa, Ala., for the Crimson Classic.
