Somers finished the 6,000 meter course in 21:07.80.

The Grizzly women finished 58 points better than Augustana (S.D.) and Western State (Colo.).

Also running for the Grizzlies was former LAHS standout Heather Wood, who was ninth overall in Saturday's race (21:22.27), and fifth among ASC participants.

Both Wood and Somers earned All-Regional honors.

For the Grizzly men, former LAHS runner Ryan McNiff earned All-Region honors with his 13th-place finish at the race. He was fourth among the Grizzlies finishing in 31:30.
