KERI ROUSE -- Women's Cross Country
Nov. 9, 2011
Keri Rouse is a sophomore on the Point Park women's cross country team, and she is this week's Featured Athlete. Rouse is a native of Greensburg, Pa., and a graduate of Hempfield High School.
Rouse was a key contributor to the women's team last year, and as a sophomore in 2011, she took on an expanded role. When the Pioneers needed someone to step up this year due to injuries and runners lost to graduation, Rouse was up to the task.
She got her 5K time down to as low as 22:48 by the end of her freshman year, and she picked up where she left off this season. Rouse ran in the 22- to 23-min range this year as a sophomore and was oftentimes the top finisher for the Pioneers.
At the Unaffiliated Group (Conference) Meet Nov. 5 in St. Louis, Mo., Rouse set a personal-best time of 22:47 in the 5K race.
