Uwajeneza wins Missouri Southern Stampede individual title

Florance Uwajeneza might be the most in-form athlete in the region right now.

The junior won the individual title at the Missouri Southern Stampede on Saturday, making it five wins in five races in her cross country career as a Lady Buff. As a team, WT finished fourth overall.

Uwajeneza crossed the line in 16 minutes, 43 seconds, marking the first time in her career to run a 5,000-meter cross country race in under 17 minutes. Right behind her was teammate Eleonora Curtabbi, who crossed the line with a time of 16:44.

The junior from St. Paul, Minnesota has yet to win anything but gold this season on the cross country course, winning the individual title in each of her five races with the Lady Buffs that date back to last year’s season.
