Bloomington, Ind- Indiana University played host to the 1999 NCAA Cross Country Championships today at the IU Cross Country Course. Brigham Young came away the overall winner with 72 points.
The individual winner for the women was Erica Palmer, a sophomore from Wisconsin. She completed the race with a time of 16:39.5. "This is an awesome course for me. I'm from New Hampshire, which is all mountains, so all these hills are great for me," said Palmer.
The second place finisher was Amy Yoder from Arkansas with a time of 16:44.1. "I've never rigged up so bad. I thought I could go another 800 but saved it up for the stretch. Then I couldn't kick it in," commented Yoder. " Erica saved it all for the end. The end was all in slow motion for me". This was Yoder's second time this year running on the IU course. The first time that she was here, was for the Sam Bell Invitational in which she won the race with a time of 17:06.9.
