By Tim Glon

 Seniors All-American Alison Steinbrunner and Lydia Weaver finished 1-2 to lead No. 34-ranked Ohio Northern to the 2012 Ohio Athletic Conference Women's Cross Country Championships title Saturday afternoon at the Wilmington Cross Country Course.

The Polar Bears (80-22 overall) won the team title with 52 points, edging Mount Union (62 points) and John Carroll (72 points) for the crown.

Steinbrunner had a record-setting afternoon as well, winning her OAC-record fourth consecutive individual title.

She won the event by a full 42 seconds in 22:12 for the 6,000-meter course.

Four Polar Bear runners earned All-OAC honors by finishing in the top 18.

Weaver finished second in 22:54, sophomore Catie Huber was 13th in 24:17 and freshman Aya Tomozawa was 16th in 24:27.

Senior Casey Adamcik and senior Sarah Turley were 20th and 21st, respectively with identical times of 24:37.

The victory was the sixth conference championship in the last eight seasons for Ohio Northern, as ONU previously won the title in 2005, '06, '08, '10, and '11.

The Polar Bears will return to action on Saturday, Nov. 13, with the NCAA Division III Great Lakes Regional Championships at Anderson, Ind.
