Loras 4th of 9

The Loras College women's cross country team finished fourth at the 2010 Iowa Conference Championships on Saturday, led by Katie Hemesath's 13th place finish.

Hemesath came home in 23:45, 49 seconds slower than her time two weeks ago at the Dr. Robert Tucker Invite when she finished third, but did earn All-Iowa Conference honors for her top-15 finish. She was the top Duhawk runner in each of Loras' six regular season events.

After Hemesath, Tara Kilburg finished 27th (22nd for scoring purposes) in 24:31. Genna Kinley was 33rd (25th) and Mary Rector was 35th (26th) and Meghan Wolett closed the Loras scoring in 41st (30th). Kinley came to the finish line in 24:47, followed by Rector's 24:50, and Wolett's 25:03.

Rounding out the varsity lineup for Loras were Kelsey Kruse's 25:08 and Maria Kalb's 25:21.
