She claimed all-district honors those same seasons and was an All-American in 1994, ‘95 and ‘98. The Buffs finished in the top four of the NCAA in three of those seasons which include a runner-up finish in 1995.

She won one conference individual title, scored in 15 conference races and was an indoor 5,000-meter All-American in 1998.
