Pitney doing her thing at CSU (Running)

October 6, 2009

Four years after snatching a state cross country championship, Crystal Pitney of Fairbanks is still on the run.

Pitney is a sophomore at Colorado State University, where she is part of a national-caliber women’s squad loaded with talent.

On Friday – four years to the day when she won her ASAA Class 4A title for West Valley – the Alaskan helped the Rams place second in the prestigious Bill Dellinger Invitational in Eugene, Ore.

The meet featured some of the top teams in the country like Oregon, BYU, Alabama, Portland, Villanova and Cal Polly.

“Overall the women’s team did very well today,” Colorado State coach Bryan Berryhill told the school’s Web site. “If you look at where we were last year at this meet compared to where we are this year, they are just night and day.”
