In her first race at 6000m, Southeastern Oklahoma State freshman Megan Rose moved up in team rankings once again. Through the first three races at her new school, the former Mansfield cross country runner has steadily climbed the pecking order of her college team.
At North Texas a few weeks ago, the rookie distance runner was fifth on her scoring team. A week later she moved to fourth on her squad at the Chile Pepper in Fayetteville. This past weekend in Lawrence, Kansas Rose moved to the third place Savage Storm finisher in the KU hosted Rim Rock Farm Classic.
The distance at Rim Rock was 6000m. Rose has been running a 5000m distance for her entire high school career and the first two meets of her newborn college career.
“”It was nice going into a race with no exact expectation for my time,” spoke Rose via a text message. “I’m really happy with my team.”
Rose took the KU course in 24:50.3. That landed her in 74th place overall among nearly 150 competitors.
