HOUGHTON, N.Y. — The McMurry War Hawks cross country teams wrapped up their seasons Saturday at the National Christian College Athletic Association Championships with the women finishing 11th in the team standings and the men placing 13th.

The McMurry women, which had just the minimum five runners needed for team scoring, totaled 321 points in the field of 21 teams. Cedarville edged Oklahoma Baptist 44-45 for the team title, while Dallas Baptist finished third with 65 points. Kelsey Bruce of Dallas Baptist won the individual title, covering the 5,000-meter course in 17 minutes, 19.7 seconds. Abby Hoover of Oklahoma Baptist was second in 17:51.6.

Kristen DeFrance led McMurry, finishing 34th in the field of 142 runners with a time of 19:41.6. CeCe Ramirez was 52nd in 20:22.0, followed by Mary Affleck (73rd, 21:04.4), Kiera Floyd (85th, 21:26.4) and Kimberly Fritz (92nd, 21:39.1).

The McMurry men scored 367 points in a field of 18 teams. Cedarville won the team title with 61 points with Roberts Wesleyan second (68) and Dallas Baptist third (90).

VOLLEYBALL

Wildcats win finale at Northwestern St.

NATCHITOCHES, La. — Abilene Christian closed out its season Saturday with a five-set victory over Northwestern State.

With the 28-26, 25-22, 23-25, 15-25, 20-18 decision, ACU finished the season 9-20 overall and 9-7 in the Southland Conference, tying McNeese State for fourth place. That would have qualified the Wildcats for the conference tournament for the first time in its three years of Southland competition, but ACU is inelegible for postseason play until 2017 as it makes the transition to full NCAA Division I membership.

Jennifer Loerch had 21 kills and 15 digs to lead the Wildcats, while Lauren Walker had 13 kills. Kendall Bosse added eight kills with Sarah Siemens, Lexi Mercier and Jacy Smith each getting six. The Wildcats finished with .166 hitting percentage with 60 kills and 27 errors in 199 attacks.

Mercier had five block assists and Smith had four as ACU totaled seven blocks.

Siemens also recorded 41 assists and 12 digs, while Madison Hoover posted a team-high 24 digs. Dorothy Swanson (16) and Lillian Drever (14) also reached double figures in digs.

Northwestern State (7-22, 5-11) was led by Caitlin O'Connell with 20 kills and Glynna Johnson with 18, while Lauren Agan and Amanda Kunz each had 10. The Lady Demons hit .204 in 206 attacks.

Johnson had five blocks and Kunz had four as Northwestern State finished with 11 total.

Natalie Jaeger had 56 assists and was one of five Lady Demons to reach double figures in digs. Bailey Martin led with 26 digs, followed by Agan (18), Kylie Spencer (17), Reagan Rogers (15) and Jaeger (13).

In the fifth set, ACU led 12-8 only to have Northwestern State rally to go in front 13-12 on a kill by Johnson. The Wildcats fought off four match points before Loerch knocked down a pair of kills to put ACU ahead 19-18, and Jaeger was called for a ball-handling error to end it.
