ASU cross country had one runner place in the top 25 and two place in the top 50 at the Pac-12 Cross Country Championships in Salt Lake City on Friday. 

Junior Vincent Mauri led the way for the Sun Devils at the meet after earning a personal best time of 23:19.30 at the NCAA Pre-Nationals race on Oct. 15. He finished the men's 8k Friday with a time of 24:45.70, earning him 22nd place overall. 

Senior Joseph Dicke finished 41st with a time of 25:30.00. Five other Sun Devils rounded out the top 70 for the men: graduate student Luke Mason, junior Conant Smith, freshman Dayton Carlson, senior Dylan Kingston and sophomore Garrett McSheffrey.

The five finished with times of 26:35.50, 26:41.80, 27:00.40, 27:16.10 and 27:27.40, respectively. The ASU men's cross country team placed seventh overall at the championships with a score of 205 and a team time of 2:10:34.

In the women's 6k race, junior Lena Lebrun was the only Sun Devil to place in the top 50 with her time of 22:16.30, good for 48th place. Lebrun was the highest finisher to return to the Sun Devils roster after crossing the finish line last year at 21:26.00, earning 62nd place. 

Freshman Hayden Sparks finished 56th with a time of 22:42.40, while sophomore Gracie Carr finished 69th with a time of 23:12.90.

Overall, the ASU women's cross country team placed 10th at the meet with 299 points and a team time of 1:56:22. 

Both teams secured a Territorial Cup Series point in their races. The Territorial Cup Series is when ASU and UA compete against each other in 19 varsity intercollegiate sports during the 2021-22 season for one school to take home the trophy. 

ASU cross country will compete next at the NCAA West Regionals on Friday, Nov. 12 in Sacramento, California, in its final meet of the season before the NCAA Championships on Nov. 20 in Tallahassee, Florida.
