COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The TCU men's and women's cross country teams competed in the Texas A&M Invitational on Saturday. Led by top 20 finishes from Brenley Goertzen, Nicole Hicks, and Lindsay Tomaini, the women's team finished third out of 17 teams.

GOERTZEN DEBUTS
In her first race of the 2017 season, Goertzen finished second overall with a mark of 20:36.1. Her time on Saturday was only one second off of her Big 12 Conference Championship time (20:35.1).

TOP 20 FINISHES
In addition to Goertzen's second place finish, Hicks and Tomaini finished 15th and 18th overall with marks of 21:41.5 and 21:45.3 respectively.

FINAL STANDINGS
TCU finished third in the final standings behind host-school Texas A&M and Lamar. Only the Aggies had more top 20 finishes than the Horned Frogs.

BUTZ HAT-TRICK
On the men's side, Henry Butz was the top Horned Frog for the third meet in a row, finishing the 8,000-meter race in 26:56.5.

FAZIOLI'S THOUGHTS
"It was a solid debut for Bren. She was relaxed and in control the whole way and the race was a successful rust buster. Lindsay took a significant step forward. I saw a big uptick in her confidence prior to the race which I think contributed. It's great to see because she is someone who is willing to do anything you ask in order to be good and it's paying off. Nicole continues to be as consistent as ever. Solid day overall for the women."

UP NEXT FOR THE HORNED FROGS
The women will head to South Bend, Ind., for the Notre Dame Invitational on Sept. 29, while the men will go to San Antonio, Texas, for the Incarnate Word Invitational on Oct. 7.
