November 14, 2013

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – Adding to what is shaping up to be the most successful season in program history, the Golden State Athletic Conference recently announced that The Master’s College women’s cross country team boasts a handful of athletes on both the All-GSAC team and the GSAC Scholar-Athlete list.

On the All-GSAC team, Karis Frankian (Saugus, CA), Katrina Graham (Riverside, CA), Rachel Ingoldsby (St. Johns, FL), and Hannah Kellerman (Sartell, MN) represent the Lady Mustangs. These honors come on the heels of last Saturday’s GSAC Championship race where TMC produced a second-place team finish in 1 hour 30 minutes and 11.30 seconds.

Kellerman and Frankian led the Lady Mustangs by fighting side-by-side against Biola, and finished strong by placing third and fourth overall with times of 17 minutes and 32 seconds and 17:38 for the 5,000-meter course, respectively. Ingoldsby finished in sixth at 18:05.52, while Graham followed in eighth place at 18:17.95.

Off the course, Kellerman, Graham, Jessica Hawley (Santa Clarita, CA), and Micayla Frankian (Saugus, CA) excelled in the classroom earning GSAC Scholar-Athlete honors.  To qualify, an athlete must be a junior or senior academically and have a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or greater.

Now, the seventh-ranked Lady Mustangs look to close out their season on Saturday, November 23, at the NAIA National Cross Country Championships in Lawrence, Kansas.
