One for the record books. Adams State University's Stephanie Cotter won the NCAA D2 6K Women's Cross Country title in 19:15.5 to pace the Grizzlies on Saturday in Sacramento. Adams State was dominating in winning the team title, finishing 1,2,3 and placing 4 runners in the top 6 to tie the lowest score in DII women's history. The title is Adams State's 18th NCAA D2 team title and 21st in school history (3 NAIA titles.) On the men's side, Adams State's Kale Adams finished second in a gutsy performance on a fast course. Adams State, never far from the top, finished second to Colorado School of Mines in the men's standings. (Photos property Adams State University) #ThisIsAdamsState #ChampionshipU

Did you know?

Great times at Monday's Adams State University Donor and Student Recognition Dinner. Award recipients included the Willis Fassett Jr. Award in recognition of William J. Crain, Ph.D., Class of 1960 and 1962; Grizzly Club Corporate Partner of the Year, the Colorado Potato Administrative Committee; and Grizzly Club Individual Partner of the Year, Terry and Fidella Gibbs. Martin Chrisman, a junior majoring in history, spoke on behalf of the students. “We would not be able to do what we do without donor support and scholarships. We thank all of you for aiding us on our educational journey.” Jim Ehrlich accepted on behalf of CPAC. “Adams State plays a crucial role in this community with their educational mission.” CPAC support for the University dates back to the first Spud Bowl, over 70 years ago. The organization supports students through academic and athletic scholarships. “We are proud to be associated with Adams State.” Terry and Fidella Gibbs have built the Campus Café around the principles of warmth and satisfying appetites of current and past Adams State students, faculty and staff. They have also contributed to the Grizzly Club for 15 years. “Owning the Campus Café has been a great experience with a lot of wonderful people. We appreciate being recognized with this honor,” Terry said. Bill Crain, Class of 1960 and 1962, and his late wife, Ellen, Class of 1982, established the Crain Scholarship Endowment for nursing majors in 2014. “Elly and I recognize importance of higher education. We appreciate all college has done for us and want to pass it on and share our good fortune with others.”
