Nov. 2, 2010

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Over the month of October, LMU's Tara Erdmann turned in top performances at two of the most important invitationals of her season. Erdmann placed in the top five at NCAA Pre-Nationals and then went on to win her second WCC Individual Title at the West Coast Conference Championships earning her Player of the Month Honors for the conference.

Junior Tara Erdmann led the Lions with a stellar performance placing fourth overall in 20:27 for the 6k distance at NCAA Pre-Nationals in Terre Haute, Indiana October 16th. Erdmann finished behind Risper Kimaiyo of Utep, Alex Banfich of Princeton and Deborah Maier of Cal to finish in the top five in a competitively loaded field. Erdmann who has qualified for the NCAA National Championship in both track and cross country, with this performance at Pre-Nationals will definitely be marked as one of the top runners in the nation to watch the rest of this season.

This past weekend at the WCC Championships, Tara Erdmann took the individual title leading the race uncontested from the get go. Erdmann set a grueling pace as she chased down the course record finishing in 20:21 for the hilly 6k Crystal Springs course. This individual title gives Erdmann two individual West Coast Conference titles over her collegiate career and is arguably one of the best runners in conference history with the opportunity to earn another title in 2011.
