Distance runner Kreuz sets school record for Southern Oregon University

Southern Oregon University senior Cameron Kreuz set a school record in the 1,500 at Saturday's Chico State Invitational.

Kreuz improved his NAIA Automatic time with a sixth place finish in a blazing fast 1,500 race. Kreuz finished in 3:48.50, still seven seconds off the winning time of 3:41.34 by Adidas Running Club's Scott Bauhs.

The previous school record was 3:49.33, set by Trevor Palmer in 2007.

SOU's Levi Roudebush earned an NAIA Provisional mark in the 800 with a fifth place finish in 1:54.04.

The Raiders also got victories by Stephanie Miller and Matt Musselman in the javelin events. Miller won the women's event with a throw of 141-04, her second longest throw of the year. Musselman won the men's event with a heave of 160-04.

Chenin Young turned in a pair of top five finishes. Young finished second in the 100 hurdles in 15.95 and fourth in the triple jump in 33-04.

Chris Paterson finished second in the men's 3,000 steeplechase in 9:54.27.

Junior Antwun Baker again neared the NAIA Provisional standard in the 100 and 200. Baker finished third in the 100 (10.86) and the 200 (22.12).

College Softball

The Southern Oregon softball team saw its eight-game winning streak come to an end with 12-1 and 6-0 setbacks to College of Idaho on Saturday at Caldwell, Idaho.

Southern Oregon (13-12) and College of Idaho (17-14) are now tied for first place with 9-3 records at the halfway point of the Cascade Conference schedule.

The Coyotes entered the doubleheader ranked last in the conference in batting with a .238 average, but changed that early as they jumped out to a 6-1 lead and chased SOU starter Jordyn Kurtz in the second inning of the opener.

The Yotes added five runs in the third and won the game in five innings thanks to 16 hits.

In the second game, the Coyotes scored two in the first and four in the third and the Raiders never threatened.
