Complete Results

BALTIMORE, MD - The Johns Hopkins women's cross country team had three of the top four runners and five individuals finished in the top 20 to lead the Blue Jays to the 2008 Baltimore Metro Women's Cross Country Championship at Oregon Ridge Friday afternoon. The team title is the first for the Blue Jays and snaps a streak of four straight championships for host Towson.

Several non-metro teams competed in the meet, which was scored twice; once with just the metro teams and once with all competing teams (attached results include all teams). Among metro teams, the Blue Jays posted a team score of 29 points, while second-place Towson was just behind with 34 points. The Blue Jays' top three runners actually finished first, second and third among metro runners.

Junior Laura Paulsen (Lutherville, MD/Bryn Mawr) won her third straight individual metro title as she placed second overall and first among metro runners with a time of 18:10. Classmate Mira Patel (Moraga, CA/Campolindo) and freshman Cecilia Furlong (San Francisco, CA/University High School) made it three runners in the top four for the Blue Jays as Patel placed third (18:30) and Furlong was fourth (18:34).

Towson's five scoring runners all placed between sixth and 13th overall (between fourth and ninth among metro runners), but a 14th-place overall finish (10th among metro runners) by sophomore Christina Valerio (West Milford, MA/West Milford) and a 20th-place effort (13th) by senior Rachel Hogen (Tarzana, CA/Harvard Westlake) helped seal the team title for the Blue Jays.

Johns Hopkins will return to action on Saturday, September 20 when the Blue Jays participate in the Dickinson Long Short Invitational.
