LAMONI, IA -- What does winning back-to-back Heart of America Athletic Conference Women's Cross Country Championship look like? Taylor Beaverson's eyes said it all following the meet.

Upon hearing that Central Methodist University had unofficially won its second consecutive conference title, as seven Eagles finished in the top 12 of the 5K, the senior shed tears of joy and shared hugs with teammates and family. The Moberly, Mo., native took third place overall in a time of 18:53 in her final conference championship.

"It feels awesome," said Beaverson when asked about winning back-to-back titles. "I wasn't ready to be done yet. I'm glad I still have two more weeks."

Elise Schreiber, Amber Beaverson and Hailey Breusch finished fifth, sixth and seventh, respectively, to key Central Methodist's effort on Saturday. Schreiber crossed the finish line in 18:56.60. Amber Beaverson had a time of 19:04.60. Breusch finished in 19:06.20.

Tabatha Leaton and Emily Nealley were 11th and 12th overall, respectively, in the final outcome. Leaton posted a finish of 19:21.30. Nealley came in with a time of 19:23.70 in her first league title meet.

Adriana Romero came across the finish line in 19th place in a time of 19:57.70 as all Central Methodist women's cross country runners ran the course under 20 minutes.

Taylor and Amber Beaverson, Schreiber and Breusch were named to the All-HAAC first team. Leaton and Nealley were honorable mention selections.

The Eagles compiled a race-low 32 points and defeated Baker by 30.

The Central Methodist men's cross country team placed fourth in the men's 8K. The team scored 102 points.

A pair of freshmen, Tyler Meierarend and Brett Davis, were the top finishers for the Eagles, placing 11th and 12th, respectively. Meierarend posted a time of 26:33.70. Davis had a finish time of 26:47.10.

Cris Renteria was third on the team and 14th overall with a time of 26:54.10.

All three runners were All-HAAC honorable mention picks.

With its team conference title, the Central Methodist women's cross country squad automatically qualifies for the second straight season for the national championship meet. The 33rd Annual NAIA Women's Cross Country National Championship takes place Saturday, November 17, at the Fort Vancouver National Historical Site in Vancouver, Washington.
