ESTACADA , Ore. – Showcasing the depth on its roster, the No. 11-ranked Carleton College women’s cross country won two meets on Saturday, capturing the team title at both the Lewis & Clark Invitational in Estacada, Ore., as well as the crown at the St. Bonifacius Invitational closer to home.

In Oregon, the Knights claimed their third straight victory, winning the 12-team meet at McIver State Park with a score of 38 points. Carleton finished ahead of two other nationally-ranked squads, No. 19 Whitworth University (64 points) and No. 27 Linfield College (106 points). Colorado College took fourth place with a team score of 111, while the No. 6-ranked NAIA program in the country, Southern Oregon, finished fifth (119 points).
