INDIANAPOLIS – Taylor women's cross country had four members named as All-Crossroads League selections, with Quinn White earning a fourth-straight Crossroads League Coach-of-the-Year honor on Monday, following the program's fourth-straight Crossroads League Championship on November 5.


Mae Elizabeth Gimre, Taylor Bluemel, Rachel Blagg and Michelle Franch were all among the top-15 finishers at the league meet and were officially named to the All-Crossroads League Team on Monday.


Gimre finished second out of 122 with a time of 18:15, with Bluemel taking seventh at 18:42, Blagg ending eighth at 18:46 and Franch crossing in 12th at 19:01 as the lone repeat All-Crossroads League performer for TU.
