Washington's Amy-Eloise Neale finishes fourth in European Cross Country Champs U23 race for Team GB...

In Samorin, Slovakia, University of Washington senior Amy-Eloise Neale (left/photo by Paul Merca) traded her purple and gold Husky gear for the British Union Jack kit as she raced to a fourth place finish in the European Cross Country Championships Under-23 6k race Sunday.

Neale, the runner-up at the NCAA cross country championships two weeks ago, ran 20:59 on a cold but sunny day, with temperatures barely above freezing.

Germany’s Alina Reh won the European U23 title in a time of 20:22 to lead a German 1-2 finish.

However, Great Britain won the team title, as Jessica Judd (20:45), Neale (20:59) and Amy Griffiths (21:02) went 3-4-5 (6 athletes run; 3 score) to win the team title with 12 points to Germany’s 15.
