CLAREMORE — Rogers State cross country runner Brenda Felipe placed 75th at the 2012 NAIA Women's Cross Country National Championships held Saturday at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.

Under cold and rainy conditions, Felipe, a sophomore from Poteau, Okla., finished the 5,000-meter race with a time of 19:12. She is the lone Hillcat runner to make back-to-back appearances at the national meet in the program’s short three-year history.

Bernard crossed the 5K finish line in 17:42 and Regan was eight seconds behind her. Sarah Reimer 18:25 mark earned her a 17-placae finish, followed by Amelie De Fenoyl in 18th (18:27). Rhiannon Evans finished 52nd with a time of 19:12.

With 112 points, with the first individual titlist in school history, College of Idaho took second-place. Along with Holt, Sarah Johnson, Sora Klopfenstein earned All-American honors. Johnson finished seventh (18:12), while Klopfenstein finished eighth (18:13).

Olivet Nazarene was third with 133 points and two All-Americans, while defending champion Cal State San Marcos was fourth with 149 points and two honorees. Carroll (Mont.) rounds out the top five with 225 points and a pair of All-Americans.

Holt finished her junior year at College of Idaho on top and became the first Coyote to win an individual women's championship with a 5K clocking of 17:00.

It was the fourth-consecutive year that the NAIA Women's Cross Country National Championships were held at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. It was hosted by the Cascade Collegiate Conference and Concordia University-Portland (Ore.).
