SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Oregon State women's cross-country team finished in a tie for fifth among 19 teams competing on Friday in the NCAA Inter-Regional Jamboree.

Kinsey Gomez finished 11th, Emily Weber 22nd and Holly Cavalluzzo 29th to pace the Beavers.

Gomez’s time of 17 minutes, 10 seconds on the 5,000-meter course beat her personal record at the distance by more than 30 seconds. That time is now fifth all-time at OSU.

As a freshman in 2011, Gomez ran 17:45 at the 5K Bill Dellinger Invitational.

Weber’s, effort in just her second collegiate cross-country race, also puts her among OSU’s all-time bests. The redshirt freshman ran 17:26, which places her ninth in school history for 5,000 meters.

She was followed by true freshman Holly Cavalluzzo, who ran 17:33, which moves her into the 12th position on OSU’s all-time list.

Behind Cavalluzzo was fellow freshmen Kristiane Width. The Norwegian native ran 17:43 to come in 40th overall.

Sandra Martinez rounded out OSU’s scorers at the meet with a 17:47 and 45th overall.

OSU and California tied for fifth with 145 points. UCLA edged Cal Poly to win the women's team title. The Bruins tallied 77 points to finish one point ahead of the Mustangs.

UC Davis was third with 88 and Sacramento State scored 102 to place fourth.

OSU will also send a group to today’s Charles Bowles Invitational at Willamette University in Salem.

The women’s 5K for Division I entries begins at 10:15 a.m.
