Tayler Godar finished second, three seconds ahead of her one of her toughest Mid-South Conference foes Danielle Hoop. The junior crossed in 18 minutes 42 seconds 87 hundredths Friday at #JennaStrong Fall Classic.
"She ran a very good race," said GC coach Todd McDaniel. "She has been steadily getting better each race."
Godar has won two races this season and averaged in the 18:40 range.
Tayler Godar was narrowly edged, 13-hundreths of a second, for fourth place Saturday in the Silver Greater Louisville Classic women's race. Georgetown College women's cross country team finished 16th out of 46 teams in the 5,000-meter race over a rolling hills course.
"There are a lot of NCAA teams that come and compete here," said GC coach Todd McDaniel. "We were without Kristen Just and Sydney Berry. Karina Egger is coming back from a shin injury, so all things considered Saturday, I think we did really well."
Sometimes the path less taken is the way to go, but not in cross country. Fortunately, for Georgetown College and the women's cross country team doing some of the men's loop was not a devastating change to the overall outcome Saturday at the Berea Invitational.
The Tigers finished second behind Tennessee Wesleyan, and for the second week in a row Tayler Godar captured the top spot.
"The top runners didn't run in the wrong direction for long, but it probably did alter the times by about 10 to 15 seconds," said GC coach Todd McDaniel. "The lead runners, which included Tayler, Marissa Hale and Miranda Mullins were told to take the men's first loop which goes behind the finish line instead of in front of it."
Tayler Godar won the 16th Annual Shawnee State Invitational this past Saturday and earned Mid-South Conference Runner of the Week. This is the third week of handing out the award, and the first runner other than University of the Cumberlands' Danielle Hoop to get it.
It is the second time Godar has been honored with the women's cross country award, picking it up in the same week in 2013.
Tayler Godar finished 10 spots back, a mere 18.04 seconds, behind fellow Mid-South Conference competitor University of the Cumberlands' Danielle Hoop in her first race of the season. The Georgetown College men's and women's cross country team started the 2014 races with the Queen City meet in Cincinnati.
Her 19 minutes 36 seconds and seven hundredths of a second finish helped the Tigers to finish 11th out of 20 teams. They were two teams behind the Patriots, both of which are NCAA schools. The split between the top five scoring runners for GC was 2:47.80
