The Score - 2009 Early Season

Fo' Fives

2. Susan Kuijken - Florida State -- Second in the blue race today at the Pre-National meet.


3. Angela Bizzarri - Illinois -- Won the individual crown in the white race today at the Pre-National meet in the third-fastest time of the day.


4. Jordan Hasay - Oregon -- Third in the blue race today at the Pre-National meet for the frosh phenom.


5. Kendra Schaaf - Washington -- Runner-up (surrendering a
huge lead after 3K, will need to stay within herself early in the race to challenge for the win at nationals) in the white race today at the Pre-National meet.



Women's Teams:

1. Washington -- Returns a strong crew from the 2008 championship squad, won the white team race today at the Pre-National meet (with a 1-5 spread under :55 over 6K) by 30 points.


2.
Colorado -- Won the blue team race today at the Pre-National meet
(with a 1-5 spread under 1:30 over 6K) by 41 points.


3. Florida State -- Second in the blue team race today (with a 1-5 spread under :29 over 6K) at the Pre-National meet, led by individual title contender Susan Kuijken.



4. Oregon -- Hasay leads a seasoned crew coming back from the 2008 runner-up squad, third (with a 1-5 spread under 1:21 over 6K) in the blue race at today's Pre-National meet.

2. Sam Chelanga - Liberty -- Runner-up (in the second-fastest time of the day) in the white race today at the Pre-National meet; led by 12 seconds at 5K and lost by 7 seconds, so will need to realize that he cannot just run away from a field of this caliber if he is to climb into first and hold onto it through the finish at nationals.
