Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference cross country coaches have selected the 2013 Preseason All-KCAC Women's Team.
The group, which is made up of top returning runners of 2012, includes two Lady Bulldogs in senior Aspen Frey and sophomore Savana Cross.
Frey is coming off an NAIA All-American season as she was named to the Capital One Academic All-American list for 2012-13.
She was Mac's top cross country athlete and finished ninth at the KCAC Championships last season, narrowly missing a trip to Nationals.
She did qualify for the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field National Championship meet in the marathon.
Cross placed 13th in the 2012 KCAC Championships and was the Bulldogs' top newcomer. Her Personal Record in the 5K was 20:58 and she is set to make huge strides during her sophomore season.
Friends lead all schools with three student-athletes on the list. The team is made up of five seniors, one junior, and four sophomores. Nine of the ten student-athletes listed are from the state of Kansas.
The 2013 season gets underway for McPherson cross country when they host their alumni 4K/5K on Aug. 31.
The squad follows that up on Sept. 14 with a trip to Hutchinson to run at the Hutchinson County Community College Invitational.
