Ramos Earns Big 12 Runner of the Week

IRVING, Texas On Tuesday the Big 12 Conference honored Kansas State sophomore Beverly Ramos as the Big 12 women’s cross country Runner of the Week for her first place finish at the Woody Greeno Invitational in Lincoln, Neb., on Sep. 15. This is Ramos’ first season as a Wildcat after transferring from the Universidad de Puerto Rico.


She earned the victory in Lincoln by clocking in a 6K time of 21:21.85, which was good for eighth-best in school history. Her efforts helped the women’s team finish second place in a field of 24 teams. The Woody Greeno Invitational was the second meet that Ramos placed first in this season. Her first victory of the season came at the K-State/KU Dual on Sep. 7 in Manhattan.


This is the first Big 12 Runner of the Week honor for K-State cross country since Liliani Mendez was recognized for her efforts on Sep. 27 of last season.


The Wildcats have a week off before traveling to Minneapolis, Minn., for the Roy Griak Invitational on Sep. 29.
