Region IV Division I Meet
Lady Chiefs limp to second place finish, four Waubonsee runners qualify for NJCAA National Meet
The Lady Chiefs came up just short in their bid for the Region IV Division I title. Waubonsee finished only four points behind the College of DuPage in the team scoring with 46 points. Four Lady Chiefs earned All-Region honors with Jen Howland leading the way as she has all season. The sophomore placed third overall covering the 5K course in a time of 20:06. Jazmin Zepeda finished fifth, Amanda Lesak came in eighth and Amanda Palmquist placed 14th to each earn All-Region status. Hampered by an injury, sophomore Ashley Leonetti finished 27th overall, running at least a minute off her usual pace. The Chaparrals' fifth runner, Stephany Ruiz-Gonzalez, finished 17th overall to eclipse the Lady Chiefs' team scoring lead to that point and clinch the title for DuPage.
