RICHMOND, Va. – Junior Nicole Walters (Orange, Va.) started to emerge as a real threat in the Colonial Athletic Association last year and if the 2010 season opener is any indication, she's even more on her way this year.
Walters earned a top-10 finish with a time of 19:34.42 over the five-kilometer course to lead the Virginia Commonwealth University women's cross country to a second-place overall finish at the Lou Onesty Open, hosted by the University of Virginia.
VCU is back in action in two weeks when it hits the course at the Hagan Stone Park Invitational in Greensboro, N.C.
