Lim Leads Oxy at Pomona-Pitzer

CLAREMONT — Despite being a little shorthanded, a number of Occidental women's cross country runners improved their 4k cross country personal records in the first competition of the season at No. 8 Pomona-Pitzer on Saturday. 

Oxy was without headliners Sabrina Thurber and Lydia Montgomery who missed the meet due to minor injuries.

Junior Kayla Lim was Oxy's No. 1, coming off of a breakout track season last spring.

"We were really happy with the way the women's team competed today," Oxy head coach Rob Bartlett said. "Our focus and attitude were excellent."

Lilah Abrams, Gabriella Wayne, Karin Uzawa and Catherine Teasdale rounded out Oxy's top five scorers.

Next Race: Oxy has two weeks before its next meet at UC Riverside on Sept. 14.
