Bethany Hasz won the individual title in the Big Ten Women's Cross Country Championships and led the Gophers women's team to a runner-up team finish. The senior from Alexandria, Minn., led the field over the entire 6K race, and it came down to a two-woman race between her and runner-up Bailey Hertenstein of Indiana.

Hertenstein surged with about 200 meters to go, but Hasz went with her and passed her to finish in 20 minutes, 13.2 seconds, two seconds ahead of Hertenstein.

See what Gopher's head coach Sarah Hopkins had to say about Haszs' win and the Gopher's runner-up finish below.

Hasz had previously finished in 5th place, 10th place, and 20th place over her career at the Big Ten Women's Cross Country Championships. Check out those results below:
